Maho asks Akio if Shiori was really once a good girl like what he told her. He confirms it saying Shiori was a very bright and cheery girl who often looked out for Maho. Then what made her change, Maho asks. And would that memory change her for the worse again should she regain it? And which is the real Shiori- the old one or the current one?
Shiori tells Kai she is going to sleep since she is exhausted from playing all day. He tries to get a word in, but she just ignores him and announces she is turning off the lights or else she can’t fall asleep. Shiori and Kai sleep on separate mattresses with a very small distance between them. They both face opposite directions, but Kai is nervous as hell. He can't believe that Akio had allowed such an arrangement, and he slowly turns to look at Shiori's back. Then he reminds himself to control his actions while rubbing his face in his pillow. Shiori isn’t asleep either. She can't forget that when she saw Maho crying, she could only think how pitiful she was, and that she had gone through a lot of tough experiences. Because of me, I pitied her as if someone else caused it. If Akio knew how I was thinking, he probably would be very sad. Shiori finally closes her eyes
Kai climbs on top of Shiori (what is he trying to do /o.o\ Bad idea!) and Akio walks into the room to tell Shiori to go back to her room since Maho has fallen asleep. Akio sees the scene and is stunned, with Kai quickly surrendering with his hands up, having been caught. Shiori totally does not notice anything and just sleepily flicks the lights on. Akio while still a bit shocked, but because Kai is kneeling behind, he keeps quiet about what he saw and just tells Shiori Maho's situation. Shiori tells him she is okay in this room and Maho might be pissed if she woke up seeing her next to her. She is perfectly safe since Kai has no interest in her, and looks to Kai to confirm it, only to see a Kai brooding in the corner, scaring her. Akio apologizes to Kai, and Kai in a haunting way accepts his apology, leaving Shiori very confused, as she doesn’t know what they are talking about. Akio then suggests that he will sleep with his sisters so help him move the beddings. Shiori is obviously excited about this arrangement whereas Kai doesn’t want to be alone in such a huge room. Thus leading to the final conclusion of the 4 of them in one room, and in order of left to right- Kai, Akio, Maho and Shiori. Shiroi can't fall asleep, having already dozed off just now. She starts to talk to Akio who is awake too. Akio tells her that Maho was simply bewildered by the situation and hence please forgive her. Shiori tells him that she likes Maho despite Maho hating her since before. And she likes Akio too. The siblings stare into each other’s eyes. Shiori gets a bit flustered and tells him, because of such reasons, he doesn’t need to worry, although it is a bit regretful of what happened to the present. Akio tells her that Maho doesn't actually hate her.
Maho is the first to wake up and is amused to find the other 3 in the same room.
Shiori: After waking up, Maho was the usual Maho.
They all return home from their trip. Akio exclaims it is good to be home. Maho says he is like some old man. Shiori thinks about Akio's expression when talk to her the previous night, and wonders if that split second where his expression became intense was her imagination. Akio finds the delivery note that was left at their house for Shiori.
Kai calls Yuusuke, and tells him that while he likes Shiori 1, he seems to be starting to like Shiori 2 too. Yuusuke replies that he could tell from a while ago.
Akio and Shiori look at Shiori's profile in the newest Cookie magazine. Akio is a bit in disbelief that Shiori is contestant number 13, while Shiori, thinking that the camera test had gone really really badly, is kind of delighted that she got in, though she doesn't understand why. Akio looks the blushing Shiori and compliments her that she looks cute in the pictures. Akio passes the magazine to Maho, who reads out in a flat tone that Shiori's interest are housework, and favourite phrase is thank you, which really is the opposite of her. Shiori belatedly realizes those were part of the application form when she signed up and that she should have changed it before they published it. Maho comments that Shiori is the only one with a different expression, and not in a good way. Akio claims it isnt like that, while Shiori still a bit deranged from her embarrassing profile agrees that she is the only one without a smily face. Akio looks again and tries to reassure her, but his voice lacks confidence, which Shiori points out.
School term starts. Girls are discussing Shiori's appearance in the magazine. Shiroi walks onto school grounds with Kai. She spends her lunch break with Kai and Yuusuke in the garden. Yuusuke tells Shiori people are making a big fuss about her appearance in the magazine. Shiori says it is probably people who dislike her cause she can always hear whispering but no one comes up to talk to her about it. Yuusuke is surprised as for him, people keep on asking him what kind of person Shiori is. Kai stares at the magazine intensely, pissing Shiori off as she uses it to hit his head. She asks him why did he specially buy the magazine. He answers he just did. Yuusuke points out the same thing as Maho did about her pictures to which Shiori covers her ears, upset. Kai announces he will no longer call her Shiori 2. The other two are silenced. Yuusuke asks if he is going to revert back to "Shiori Sempai", but nope, Kai is going to just call her "Shiori", without the "san", which in a way is disrespecting her seniority. He tells her that if she doesn't like it, he can stop, but Shiori doesn't mind it. Yuusuke watches as Kai asks then would it be okay to call her a pillbug, which Shiori sassily responds that she will just call him that too, and thinks that it is like an elementary school crush. A few junior girls approach Shiori and turns out they are big fans of hers after seeing her in the magazine and want to take a picture with her like she is some celebrity. Shiori is stunned and embarrassed, while Kai and Yuusuke broadly smile behind her.
Akio receives a message from Shiori, telling him about her sudden fame and how she is embarrassed that her fans give her their support for the competition. He sends her a reply and Mizuki asks if it is alright for such a short and no value-added reply. He tells her that Shiori has been messaging about the little things that happen in school since school started, like the teacher's wig moving out of place, falling asleep in math class, that she is on her way home and always tells him her opinion on her bento that he packed. Shiori has been sensible enough to message him less when he is meeting people like Mizuki. He says that she must have been greatly cheered up by her juniors' actions. Mizuki climbs into Akio lap, telling him that she relies on him too. She kisses him and hugs him tighter. Mizuki reminisces that as a kid, Shiori used to cling onto Akio. This reminds Akio of Maho's statement of when did Shiori change for the worse. Mizuki asks Akio if he wants to do ecchi things with her. Akio is like now? Mizuki tells him her family only returns at night. She tells him that she wants to do it today, that she wants to possess Akio. She is fine that Akio always puts his sisters above everything else, since that is the part she likes about him. But once in a while she wants to be the one who owns him. She starts to unbutton her blouse, but Akio grabs her wrists. She tells she feels like an idiot being jealous of his sisters. Akio thinks back to the night where he saw Kai climb onto of Shiori. Akio kisses Mizuki, and tells her he has always liked her...
