At Eitoku Academy, the Correct 5 force another student to withdrawal for not paying his tuition. The student pleads for more time, but Haruto Kaguragi says the school "doesn't need commoners". Oto Edogawa watches as she recalls the previous day. In a flashback, her co-workers inform her that Maeno resigned and give her a note from him. The note says that he will "never come near Oto Edogawa again." Oto suspects that Haruto may be behind him quitting and questions his motivations for doing so.
Airi Maya brings Kaito Taira to the school garden to ask him a question. She asks him questions about Haruto's strange behavior lately, but he dodges each question. Airi then reveals that she only enrolled at Eitoku to be near Haruto. She grows increasingly irritated as she mentions the girl she saw outside Haruto's house. Kaito frantically agrees to help her find the girl. Airi throws a brick at a statue to let out some of her frustration. She then says "I'm counting on you", before leaving behind a tired Kaito.
Oto's friends, Asami and Kyoko, approach her to ask her out for pancakes. She wants to go, but reluctantly declines since she cannot afford it. After they leave, Haruto walks up and urges her to thank him for Maeno quitting. Having overheard her conversation, he asks out to go eat pancakes Oto agrees and they decide to meet that Sunday. On Saturday, an irritated Airi tries on several articles of clothing. She looks out the window and coincidentally sees Oto walking with a guy. Airi declares "that's the girl!"
