While on their outing to the zoo, Yukika continues to struggle talking directly to Makoto, but eventually manages to work her way up to casual conversation. Later, Yukika manages to win a quiz contest with Makoto, managing to talk a lot more with him during the rest of the day. The next day, however, Yukika becomes convinced that Makoto only accompanied her out of kindness and not because of love, feeling that she should just give up and break off her ties with everyone. Not wanting things to end just like that, Takeo and Rinko catch up to her, helping her understand her feelings. Afterwards, Makoto gives Yukika a gift in return for the chocolates she gave him, properly turning her down while still leaving her with happy memories.
