The night of the Christmas party comes, and everyone has a good time. Mayama arrives late, and the party has become a little crazy.

When Rika's husband died in an accident, Professor Hanamoto took care of Rika, as she suffered major injuries in the accident. Professor Hanamoto also tells Mayama that Rika is hiring someone to replace Mayama. This is because Rika believes Mayama will get the job he applied for, but it is also because she has feelings for him, and it is too painful to have him around her. Later, Yamada decides to stay at the school as a graduate student. Mayama is notified that he has received a job at the place he applied to. Takemoto, Hagu, Morita, Mayama, Yamada, and Professor Hanamoto have a party to celebrate.

Meanwhile, Mayama bids Rika farewell when she learns he has been hired and started working at the Fujiwara Design Office, promising he would return some day. Before Professor Hanamoto's farewell party, Hagu tries to find a four-leaf clover to give Professor Hanamoto as a good luck charm, to which everyone coincidentally passes by and helps out to find.

After dinner, Mayama asks why they are gathered together, and no one seems to know. Takemoto replies that it's his birthday, and everyone is very embarrassed. They all attempt to make up for it. Morita makes a Twister mat and cards with too many colors, and he and Takemoto become hopelessly entangled in it. Morita makes a joke about Mayama's stalking, and Mayama leaves. Yamada sees him off. After Mayama has left, Yamada looks up at the sky and wonders how to give up on Mayama, and whether it's worth it. Mayama, meanwhile, sits and stares at Rika's window.

Later on the next day, Hagu is still in an uncomfortable mood. She went out to buy tobacco for Professor Hanamoto and took a look of cherry blossoms for a while. Morita suddenly appears in his eccentric behavior, giving her his scarf and kissing her unconsciously. He ran away the moment he realized what he had just done. Hagu was quite shocked after that and she got a fever which, according to Professor Hanamoto, is often caused to her by stress. Professor Hanamoto told Takemoto about Hagu's uncomfortable feelings while going out with Morita last time, and he said she did not realize that was because she liked him. Takemoto, feeling depressed, comes back home, finding the person responsible for summoning Morita to work, who is seen breaking into Morita's overly secured room. The room shockingly resembled that of a master control room. This mysterious person then finds Morita's passport, in order to be delivered to the airport. He then tells Takemoto that Morita is about to go to Los Angeles for six months for a job. Takemoto jumps into the car with him to go to airport but he could not make it in time to bid Morita farewell.

Until one day, Lohmeyer disappears, leaving the four in major depression and sorrow. In the present, Takemoto and Mayama go to an amusement park. Mayama explains the history and design of the amusement park as well as its mascot, leaving Takemoto in total shock. The suit of the mascot, ironically, was worn by Lohmeyer at the time. Mayama says that Lohmeyer as the mascot attracted many of the adults more than the children, because of his personality. Takemoto then wonders about Lohmeyer as the mascot of the amusement park.

Takemoto asked Hagu whether or not she wants Morita to return, but her stern and straightforward answer before was really hurting him. The story mainly talked about Yamada and her feelings later on. To save money, Mayama asked Yamada to help making some artwork for his firm's project. Takemoto, seeing Hagu all fired up creating her latest work, reminded him of Morita's dedication in his work. Yamada invites Hagu along with the gang to the fireworks display that will be taking place that evening. Both Hagu and Yamada choose their yukatas for the event.

Mayama dreams of Rika. One of his co-workers, Miwako Teshigawara, says that when one dreams of another, it is because the person in the dream wants them to meet so much that the soul escapes the body and comes to the dream. Mayama was in doubt about that, but on the way back home from a meeting, he and his other co-workers, Takumi Nomiya and Kazushi Yamazaki, passed by a park where Rika was just behind a fountain watching him passing by. Mayama didn't notice until later on. However, when he ran back to the fountain, she was not there anymore. Later, everyone at Mayama's workplace began talking about Rika's deceased husband, seemingly making Mayama realize that he was the only one who did not know Rika's husband personally. Nomiya mentions Yamada, implying that he wants to meet her. Mayama then leaves the office, only to go to the festival with Takemoto, Hagu, Yamada, and Professor Hanamoto.

However, Miwako calls Mayama to urgently come back to the office, concerning a scale model for a meeting the next day, as it has been accidentally broken. After noticing that Mayama left his coat at her place, Yamada reminisces with her time with Mayama. Nomiya comes in, as Yamada is in deep thought, which, in turn, startles her. Nomiya takes Yamada out in the evening to eat. Furious, Mayama develops jealousy, as he finds out that Nomiya went out with her last night. Yet Yamada becomes frustrated for his jealousy. Mayama converses with Professor Hanamoto about Rika, but Mayama ends up walking back home, disappointed. He starts to reminisce about Rika again, when suddenly he gets a call that Asai, Rika's current assistant, suddenly has health problems and needs to stay in the hospital.

At the same time, Asai is still in the hospital and Rika hasn't been able to find a replacement for him. Hence, Mayama decides to leave the firm and comes back to work with Rika at the Harada Design Office, without much of asking for her permission. Yamada was acknowledged about this two weeks later through Nomiya, resulting in her depression. Later on, Yamada tells the others that four guys, who were childhood friends of hers, proposed to her at a shopping district, but she chose to run away from them. Professor Hanamoto later on explained to Yamada that her situation with Mayama was similar than that of the four guys who proposed to her. Professor Hanamoto tells her that in the case of one loving someone who doesn't love another, people could just choose either to try or give up. He advises her to tell the four guys her true feelings. When Yamada leaves, Professor Hanamoto's thoughts reveal a third choice, but he would never say it aloud.

He then took down the artwork he made for the art exhibition, much to a surprise for the others. His depression made the opening of their Christmas party a little dull, but Professor Hanamoto's antics made things lively. Rebuilding another artwork for his graduation art project, Takemoto suddenly collapses and is brought to the hospital to be diagnosed for an ulcer.
