Tsukushi Makino goes on an outing with Kinsan. She assumes his family is poor like hers and begins suggesting cheaper activities. That night, they run into a newly arrived Tsukasa Domyoji, who exposes Kinsan's background.
Tsukushi Makino and Kinsan visit a shrine together in Asakusa. Kinsan is distressed over his "small fortune," but refuses to pull another in case it is a "bad fortune." Tsukushi laughs at his reaction and Kinsan smiles, saying "You're finally yourself again." Afterwards, they go to eat soba together. While chatting, Tsukushi learns they are the same age and then assumes that Kinsan's family must be much poorer than hers. She promptly offers to "go dutch" on the meal.
Next, Tsukushi suggests getting drinks from a vending machine, saying "There are so many ways for us poor people to have fun!" Kinsan attempts to interject, but Tsukushi keeps talking. She complains about her rich classmates, whom are always "decked out in name-brands." Kinsan tries to interrupt again to say something about his family. Tsukushi, however, assures him that she already knows that he is poor and that they will both be okay. Bewildered, Kinsan is unable to answer.
Now at an amusement park, it begins raining and they take cover. Tsukushi thinks Kinsan is going to kiss her, but he instead uses his shirt to help her dry off. Walking home, Tsukushi feels self-conscious and says a quick goodbye to Seinosuke. She hides when she hears footsteps, waiting to kick the stranger. She realizes it is Tsukasa Domyoji. Kinsan walks up, having come to return her handkerchief. Tsukasa throws a magazine at him, exposing him as "Seinosuke Amakusa, son of a member of parliament."
