The door slowly opens which frightens Tsukushi Makino, who immediately thinks that it is a ghost. Tsukasa Domyoji tells her "There's no such thing" and readies himself to pounce on the person coming through the door. He does so, yelling "How dare you sneak into my house?!" Rui Hanazawa appears to have recognized the person's voice and tells someone to turn on the lights. They are shocked to see that the person is Shizuka Todo, who is now knocked out cold.
The next day, Tsukushi watches Shizuka who has been unconscious since the previous night. She slowly starts to wake up, though her head still hurts. Tsukasa apologizes for taking her for a burglar. She smiles, happy to see her friends. Shizuka reveals that she dropped by on the off chance they were there, being in Canada for a business trip. Everyone then moves to a different room to chat by the fireplace. Tsukushi stares at Shizuka for a moment, thinking "A truly beautiful doesn't need to dress up."
Tsukasa brings up the Frenchman Shizuka was supposedly engaged to. She reveals that she turned him down, saying "I can't imagine marrying a man I don't love." Sojiro Nishikado pats Rui on the back. Tsukasa suggests to Tsukushi that they take a walk, allowing Rui and Shizuka to be alone. Outside, Tsukasa tells her "I think it's time we settled things." She assumes he is speaking of the debt she owes and promises to pay her back. He yells "I'm saying I love you," but she does not hear him over the fireworks.
