Tsukasa Domyoji begins acting just like Tsukushi Makino's boyfriend. First, he gives her a pager and tells her to come when he calls her. Then he lavishes her family with furniture. Meanwhile, she notices a change in Rui Hanazawa.
Following Sakurako Sanjo's apology, Tsukushi Makino feels that she "still [cannot] bring [her]self to forgive her." She then overhears the F4 talking about Sakurako. Though she does not say anything, she is irritated by their comments since it was all their fault in the first place. Tsukasa Domyoji gives Tsukushi a pager, telling her "when I page you, I want you to come right away." She is annoyed by his attitude, feeling that he is treating her like a "dog."
Tsukushi finds her home overrun with large, expensive furniture which her parents inform her Tsukasa sent. She then receives a page from Tsukasa that says "Call immediately." Tsukushi calls complaining, but he ignores her and tells her to come meet him. She storms over to Amazon and is about to tell him off, when she notices Rui Hanazawa being flirty with a girl. Tsukushi is brought out of her state of shock, when Tsukasa tells her to sit down. She rushes off, after telling him to take back the furniture.
That night, she lays awake thinking about Rui, who used to be "deep and aloof and serious." The next day, she meets him at the emergency exit. He says hello, despite never saying it to her before. Tsukushi asks about France and then about Shizuka Todo. He cuts off her last question with "Is it true you're dating Tsukasa?" Tsukushi tells him no. Rui then says "I've had my eye on you" followed by "Why don't you dump Tsukasa and go out with me?"
