Sayuri continues defend the hotel against the local ruffians. Misono shows concern over Sayuri's troubled look although Tamaki shows up his naivety when explaining that Sayuri only has that look because she has to hold back when fighting. The next day, Sakai is devastated when Sayuri doesn't show up for work. In her absence, Yu volunteers to replace Sayuri for the day but rejects immediately when a random object flies past her face. Afterwards, the group have different interpretations on what Sayuri is up too. The next day, it turns out Sayuri had been sick with the flu, and tried telling them with a smoke signal, but had to "shake off" some interference, leaving the group to wonder what actually happened.
