Plot Summary

Nako is told to teach Ohana how to be a waitress. Ohana remembers that during her childhood, her mother did not come to her school's open house. She remembers what her mother, Satsuki, told her, "Don't rely on anyone it is better that way." With that in mind Ohana decides to take the initiative and work her butt off. She is able to get a lot of work done, but this soon backfires in a few ways.

In particular, Ohana is able to prepare breakfast one day for the staff. This makes Minko angry, as Minko thinks that Ohana did this just to make fun of Minko's position as a chef-in-training and her recent trouble in the kitchen. Minko continues to tell Ohana to "die".

Ohana finally has enough of Minko telling her to die, and how Nako keeps running away from her. Ohana, finally realizing that she has to overcome her self-reliant nature and confronts them. She remembers that as a child, her mother forced her to learn to cook, which is why she is so good at cooking now. But for dinner on the day that Ohana's mother failed to come to the open house at school, Ohana purposefully cooked her mother's least favourite food, broccoli. Ohana tells them she wants to be able to rely on them and learn from them, and she wants to work with them too. But, since she is angry at how they have treated her so far, she also has them tell her their least favourite foods, because she will prepare breakfast for the staff again the next day. Minko says it is spinach.

Ohana, by taking the initiative to clean the "Wave Room" without being told to, which is occupied by a male writer, had accidentally thrown out the writer's rough papers. Ohana finds out that the place she used to throw out the trash was actually a storage compartment. As a result she finds the writer's papers and decides to take a look. It seems to be some sort of erotic fiction, where Ohana is the main character.
