SynopsisArata and Kazuomi continue spying on Zen and Rena, but when Zen puts his hand on her Kazuomi rushes out to intervene. After hearing what happened Arata leaves, tasking Kazuomi with walking Rena to the station.
Arata and Kazuomi watch from their hiding place behind a corner as Zen and Rena walk to a parking lot nearby. Kazuomi starts to panic as he sees Zen lead Rena toward a car, suspecting she may be getting abducted. Arata recognizes the car as belonging to his old company so he does not believe she is in danger, and in his mind he starts piecing together what he has seen to make sense of the situation. However, as he sees Zen catch Rena to stop her from falling when she stumbles in a dizzy, Kazuomi instinctively dashes out of hiding, calling Rena's name.
Kazuomi tells Rena he is on his way home from his part time job, however Rena blushes and gives no answer when Kazuomi asks her what is she doing there. When Rena tells Zen he is a friend of hers Zen explains to Kazuomi that he saw Rena suffering from a heat stroke and took her to the family restaurant to drink some water. After she was feeling better Zen offered to drive her to the nearest station but Rena did not want to get in a car with a man she does not know. After checking with Rena if it is all right to leave her with Kazuomi Zen drives away, deeply impressing Kazuomi with his gentlemanly behavior.
Kazuomi and Rena discover that Arata is nowhere to be found, and Kazuomi receives a message from Arata telling him he left when he heard what happened. Arata also tasks Kazuomi with accompanying Rena to the station, and the two agree to walk there together.
