However, M cannot even name F's favorite food, let alone her friends. M visits the kindergarten where she worked in search of clues. The principal says she took off while the kids put on a play, but another teacher tells him the principal is lying. At a cafe, M finds out that F organized a strike against the poor work conditions but somehow ended up siding with the principal, causing the other teachers to resign.

One night, he posts an announcement for his face-to-face event, but straight away M receives a message from somebody telling him that they are going to break every joint in his body at the event.

However, the author grows suspicious of a large man in the audience, hidden among the mostly female fan base. Why is the man staring at him with a blank expression on his face?

It is past midnight at BAR Lighthouse. The only customers are M, a beautiful female fan of his, and the drunken Izumi. M leaves the bar with the woman. At the station, they run into Izumi, who is too drunk to walk. In his hand is a red bib he had taken from a little buddha statue, and the woman grows furious with him. She says that angering the statue will bring a curse and goes to return the bib. There, M finds a certain white stone before the buddha statue. At a diner, Izumi reveals that his father is none other than Fukuo, the chef at BAR Lighthouse. In the morning at Café Mermaid, the beautiful woman tells M who she really is before leaving, but that is not all he finds out that morning. What will M do as he uncovers more and more of BAR Lighthouse's secrets?

Upon hearing this, Kaoru asks Fukuo and Izumi to deliver food to M. Izumi is happy to spend time with his father, but Fukuo has no idea that the young man beside him is his son.
