Shiori is reflecting on her behaviour towards Akio earlier, which anger stems from the conversation with Mizuki that she overheard.
Kai starts on the real thing when he meets Shiori, but stops when he sees her tears as she walks into train station.
Cut back to the house, where Maho announces she is going to the library and tells Mizuki to just leave Akio alone as he does his whole long act of misery. Akio is down about how events unfolded. Mizuki advises him how he should have done things instead of how he had done it. Akio knows he has hurt Shiori and says he isn’t qualified to be an older brother. Mizuki disagrees and that wasn’t typical of him. Akio looks at his father's picture. He apologises to Mizuki, saying she came to support Shiori, but things turned out this way. He mutters to himself, is Shiori alright, should he apologise to her when she gets home?
We go to the audition, where we are introduced to a model called Haduki. Her manager Asaki doesn’t seem very happy that she isn’t nervous and is just playing her DS, but she on the other hand is super confident of being the final winner, that no one is cuter than her (which is my opinion is very not true- even Mizuki is much prettier than her). Across from two of them is Shiori with a vacant stare. She wonders why she has no memories, if she had them she wouldn’t like her own brother romantically. She feels lonely and wonders if she were to die would anyone care.
The panel of judges starts to ask about her what she wrote in her application form- that her skills mainly revolve around domestic chores. She questions them if she really wrote that down. They are a bit puzzled as to why she cant remember what she wrote, to which she replies that they are all lies, the housework is done by her brother and she doesn’t help a bit. They ask her if the other point, that if she were made a model she would be happy, is true, to which she answers she has forgotten. One judge wants to not waste time and go on to the next model, but another is intrigued by her and asks why she came. As the two dispute, Shiori answers that because she has nothing, so anything she can do she will.
Shiori sits on the railing as Kai comes, telling her it is time to head back home since it is over. She asks him why he is here, he says because she told him she was going for an audition. She continues to slurp her drink, unimpressed by him. He is like, can’t you have some cute reply like oh thanks for your concern? She tells him he is only worried about Shiori 1, which she isnt. He is really concerned about her safety, but instead of retorting back, he just encourages her to go home, to which she says a big fat NO. She has decided she isnt going to their hometown, and Kai knows something must have happened at home, to which she says it is none of his business. He start to speculate what happened which just pisses Shiori more.
Akio is at home wrapping gyoza, thinking if he should message her, being understanding as to why Shiori would feel as such. He considers using the gyozas he made to get her forgiveness. His handphone vibrates suddenly and it is a call from Kai, who reports the situation in Tokyo to him. Akio is reminded of the past, where he asks his father would it be better if he wasn’t around. Does his presence bother him? His father replies, what are you saying Akio, you are a child of this house. He asks Kai to put Shiori on the phone, who doesn’t want, but eventually is head locked by Kai who forces her to listen to the phone. Akio apologises for what happened in the morning and tells her to hurry back as he has made a lot of her favourite gyozas.
Akio waits at the train platform. Shiori and Kai get off the train, and Akio welcomes them home.
Akio and Kai are in the beach eating snow cone together. Akio thanks Kai for his help, ‘cause he feels that if Kai weren’t with her, Shiori might have had really ran away. He says for now she seems normal but if they put too much pressure on her again, her smile would become awkward. Kai calls Shiori an idiot, then later remembers that Akio is her brother and apologizes. Akio says it is okay, that it must be hard to really trust someone from the bottom of one's heart. He would be of course happy when she tells him gently that things are important but the uneasiness will always be there. Until Shiori brings up the matter, he will forget about it. Kai asks Akio what will he do if Shiori's memory never comes back. Nothing, Akio says, for she is always a part of their family. Kai looks at him for a while, then asks if he could sometimes go over to their house to play during the holidays. Akio happily agrees.
Shiori gets a call from the Cookie style editor at work.
Shiroi is shocked to come home and find Kai helping out with dinner, who tells her to wash up before eating. Maho tells Kai she thinks his hair is weird, which Shiori defends her by saying that she always does that. Kai asks her if she knows who James Dean is, who must be his idol if he models after him. Akio seems shocked that James Dean is the reason why he has such hair.
Shiori has to come to a realization, and decides to manipulate such knowledge.
Shiroi seeks Akio out for a chat, who starts to joke about the story behind Kai's hairstyle. Shiori announces that she made it through the second round of audition, and the next round that will be a camera test, which results will be determined by the readers who will vote. Even though she completed her interview in a daze and not too sure why they decided to keep her, she wants to try on.
She knows her memory of Akio saying he hates her is real, but she has nothing else to request from him now. She is scared so she doesn’t ask the reason why he said that. For that is the only memory she holds. Even though she doesn’t know how the future will unfold.
