Amei Hanawa returns home late at night. Her worried mother reminds that she is "not like other normal kids," meaning she cannot overexert herself. Amei begins crying and yells at her mother to show her the emails Haruto Kaguragi had sent her years previously. The next morning, Oto Edogawa'smother informs her that her father will be arriving later that day. She also tells her that he wishes to meet Haruto that weekend. Oto then heads to school, worrying about how the meeting will go.
Amei later causes a stir among the students by arriving at school with the Correct 5. Seeing Oto ahead, Haruto calls out to her. She ignores him, texting him not to yell so loud. He texts "Are you embarrassed?," causing her to yell a denial before running inside. The Correct 5 then show Amei their "Salon". She mentions a trip they went on together and suggests doing it again, "the six of [them]." Issa Narumiya and Sugimaru Eibi correct her, "It's seven of us, not six," meaning Oto would be invited. Amei appears taken aback that they would consider Oto a part of their group.
Haruto receives a text from Oto, informing him that her father wants to meet him. He immediately starts panicking, but his friends band around him for support. Amei loudly sighs and says the trip will have to be postponed, before leaving the room. She sits down in the hallway and cries, recalling the emails she read the previous night. At Oto's house, her father complains about their home being "cramped." He mentions Haruto, saying "Sounds like I need to meet this young man." To herself, Oto thinks "It'll be okay, right?"
