Tsukasa Domyoji finds Tsukushi Makino speaking to Thomas. She makes up an excuse about him "asking for directions." Thomas speaks in German and Tsukasa replies, which impresses Tsukushi. She begins flattering Tsukasa, giving Thomas an opening to run away. Before he leaves, he asks Tsukushi to meet him at Galbo Station. Noticing Thomas' escape, an angry Tsukasa accuses Tsukushi of being "boy-crazy." She reminds him that they are not actually going out. Sad, Tsukasa replies "All right, then..."
Worried about being alone with Thomas, Tsukushi asks Kazuya Aoike to accompany her. Thomas is noticeably annoyed when she shows up at the restaurant with Kazuya, who even tries to speak Spanish to him. Looking at Thomas, Tsukushi is once again reminded of Rui Hanazawa. He quickly shocks her out of her daydreams, when he begins eating loudly. Thomas then belches and farts, embarrassing Tsukushi and Kazuya. Before leaving, he tells her "Leave the kid behind next time."
The next day, Tsukushi meets the F4 and Sakurako Sanjo. A bug flies near Sakurako and she takes refuge in Tsukasa, who promptly squashes it. Akira makes a jab at Tsukushi which Sakurako returns with "I'm sure Tsukushi gets all the flies." Tsukushi laughs it off though Sakurako starts crying, accusing her of being mad at her. Later, Tsukushi still feels gloomy when she visits Yuki Matsuoka. To cheer her up, Yuki's sister takes them both to a club. There Tsukushi is shocked to see Sakurako dancing on stage.
Chapter twenty-six was originally released in Margaret with a two-page color opening. It featured Tsukushi with the F4 dressed as butterflies. The image was republished in the art book and volume three of the complete edition.
In the previous chapter, scratch marks on Thomas' face are clearly shown but they have somehow disappeared in this chapter.
