Megumi was surprised to hear from Yamato that he is quitting the modeling business because it makes Mei sad. It's because of this that Megumi starts to ignore Mei with a bit of a hatred, while wondering why Yamato chose Mei over her. However, just as Yamato gets to meet Mei's mother, and, eventually, as things start to look better between the two, Kai doubles his efforts towards Mei, but he, through that key trinket, eventually knows she has a boyfriend, which he later knew to be Yamato when he returned to school. Mei gets to know of Kai's plans to gain revenge against his former tormentors, so she gives him some advice. With his mission of gaining revenge against his bullies looking bleak, Kai, as he declares in front of Yamato, fully turns to another mission: winning Mei's heart.
