Tsubaki Domyoji storms into the mansion, shouting for Tama. She demands an explanation for the men posted at the front door. Tama reveals that they are there to prevent Tsukasa Domyoji from leaving. Tsubaki punches Misawa, the man in charge, who explains that the president ordered them to "watch [Tsukasa] closely." Tsubaki is reminded of her own situation as she goes in search for Tsukasa. She barges into several rooms, before Tama points her to the room Tsukasa is staying in. However, it is empty.
Tsukushi Makino speaks to her mother as she walks home. She hides when she sees a member of the secret police outside. When Tsukasa arrives in a taxi, Tsukushi stops him before he can be discovered. Tsukasa brings her back to his home, saying it is "the safest place since the S.P. are all scattered." Tsukushi carefully sneaks through the grounds, while Tsukasa confronts Misawa inside. He asks whether he "enjoys" following him around. Misawa answers "It's my job," which results in Tsukasa hitting him.
Tsukasa helps Tsukushi inside via a window. He laughs at her disheveled appearance, before lending her some clothes. Tsukushi washes up in the bathroom and changes. After she emerges, Tsukasa laughs again and then calls her "cute." Tsukushi becomes nervous, thinking of the previous night. He asks her if she is "tired of [their] relationship." Tsukushi says that, despite their difficulties, "[his] craziness has rubbed off on [her]" and that "[she is] not upset at all." Tsukasa then pulls her closer to him and kisses her.
