Ringo returns to the Takakuras' home to make lunch for another encounter with Tabuki. Kanba convinces her to take Shouma along, thinking that he can swipe her diary while she's distracted and see if it is the Penguin Drum they are looking for. Ringo prepares to go birdwatching with Tabuki, while daydreaming about a fantasy world where she is a princess waiting for Tabuki to sweep her off her feet.
However, first she gets sprayed by a skunk with a weird pattern on its back. Then she discovers that Tabuki took his girlfriend Yuri along, while he thinks that Shouma is her boyfriend. Her attempts to get Tabuki to notice her keep backfiring.
Meanwhile, Kanba waits at a diner after receiving a mysterious text message, only to discover that the sender was one of his ex-girlfriends. Apparently, his exes decided to form a group dedicated to destroying him.
Back at the park, Ringo tries one more attempt to get Tabuki's attention, when the skunk sprays her again and sends her to the bottom of a lake by accident. She later wakes up and sees Tabuki's face, even though it later turns out that Shouma saved her.
Elsewhere, a girl in red heels is shoved down a subway escalator and is injured, an event that happened to have been written in Ringo's diary.
