Oto Edogawa and Haruto Kaguragi are stranded in the ocean, when the tour boat accidentally leaves them behind. Their friends realize they are missing four hours later. Tenma Hase and Airi Maya immediately set out to find them. Meanwhile, Oto begins feeling tired from treading water for so long. Haruto holds her up to keep her from drowning, despite ignoring her earlier. Oto passes out shortly before being rescued by Tenma and Airi. She wakes up some time later at the hotel. Haruto quickly makes plans to return to Tokyo that night. Oto rushes after him to thank him, before he leaves. Back home, Haruto finds the gate locked. Kobayashi then reveals that he is "no longer allowed" permitted inside.
Kobayashi shows Haruto a video of his father, who describes how Haruto has disappointed him. He has failed his father's test regarding crushing his rivals, namely Momonozono Academy. Haruto's father disowns him and plans to adopt a new heir, Kei Windsor, whom then introduces himself. Haruto has nowhere to go or stay, but Kei offers him no sympathy. He wanders around Tokyo looking for help. Two days later, Oto returns home early. When she lands, she gets a call from Arisa Konno about Haruto. She finds him waiting for her outside her job. He skips the details of his circumstances, only reminding her of her promise to help him "if [he] was ever in a bind." He then declares "Let me stay at your house."
Oto agrees to let Haruto to stay at her apartment until the others return from Hawaii. Once there, she finds a note from her mother who is away with colleagues. Oto is nervous about being alone with Haruto, though he does not seem fazed. That night, the two talk about that day on the bridge. She reveals that she had sent a note with a taxi driver. Haruto considers "tak[ing] her in [his] arms," but stops himself. The following morning, Oto goes to work where she finds Kei waiting for her. He asks to see Haruto, which she refuses. Kei begins helping her manager with a product that is not selling well. Oto senses an ulterior motive, but he denies it. She returns home after work, looking forward to seeing Haruto there.
Once Oto and Haruto sit down to dinner, he realizes that it is his eighteenth birthday. Oto has nothing to give him so she offers to do "anything" he wants. He asks for a kiss, which flusters her. She becomes irritated with him when he tells her it was a joke. Oto then slips and falls on top of him. A crying Airi enters Oto's apartment at that exact moment and sees the two in a compromising position. After clearing up the misunderstanding, Haruto decides to stay at Airi's house. There she reveals to him that she has a crush on Tenma, which has also made her jealous of Oto. Airi begins crying and Haruto comforts her until she falls asleep. The next day, Oto goes to work where she finds Kei again helping out again.
