With Mirei on his motorcycle, Fumiya drives her to his house. Before opening the door, he says that in his castle, there is a birthday party for the princess. He opens the door. Blushing Mirei sees the place decorated with draperies, roses, paper chains and hearts. She asks if he did all of this himself. He happily says that it took him a month. He also says that she celebrated his birthday and he really felt happy so he wants her to have this kind of happiness, too. Mirei is moved to tears. He leads her to her seat. Mirei wonders if he also did this table setting. He poured her some popular ladies drink which is popular at his store. He served her omurice with shrimps and tomato sauce. Mirei says that it has a restaurant feeling to it. He tells her that he was working a while ago so the food is from the store. Taking out a box from the refrigerator, Fumiya says, but, he tried making the cake himself. Mirei is shock that he baked a cake. He tells her not to be startled as he opens the box. Teary-eyed Mirei thinks that it is definitely beautiful because he made it himself. And they are speechless over the unsightly cake.
Embarrassed Fumiya apologizes to her for he usually doesn’t cook and this month, he has always trying to do it yet he always failed so he is quite depressed. Even the paper chains are sloppily made if someone looks closely at it. He says that obviously that it is her birthday but he made the cake like this..he’s truly sorry. Mirei is moved that during this one month, he has always been doing his best for her..and just by imagining how hard he worked..he’s so cute. She calls out to him and kisses his cheek. She tells him that she likes him the most!! She thanks him for doing all sorts of things for her. Fumiya is glad that he tried doing that for he unexpectedly got kissed by her. Soon, he feeds her some food and it seems that she finds it tasty. She wishes that this happy time together with Fumiya will always continue on. After they finish eating, Mirei wants to wash the dishes but he won’t let her. She insists that housework is her job. He reminds her that for today, she is the guest or rather the princess, so please take a sit. Sitting at the sofa, she thinks that he is right for they no longer live together. When he finishes, Fumiya is surprised to see Mirei crying. She asks if she can no longer live together with him again.
Mirei tells him that after they parted, she is quite lonely that she couldn’t see him and she couldn’t sleep when they couldn’t contact each other. She tearfully says that she really likes him but the distance is so far that she’s very afraid that they’ll break up one day. She wonders if they cannot always be together as lovers. Fumiya says that’s true. He goes to the balcony and says but then, he is definitely lonelier because before, she is always at his side smiling but right now, she isn’t at his house anymore. In an empty house and he is always by himself, the loneliness is unbearable. Besides, she is very popular and it is possible that some guy will steal her away. She protests but he adds, “But in this lifetime, I don’t plan on giving you to any other person. So, in order for you to be always at my side, I want for us to make a special promise.” He holds her hand and asks if she knows what today is. Puzzled, she says that today is the day when she is born and it has already been 16 years. He asks if she knows about what’s with being a 16 years old girl. She is still puzzled. He tells her that for girls, it is the age when they can marry.
Fumiya puts his hand in his pocket and takes out something. He puts a ring on her finger. He says that from today on, he wants her to be always smiling at his side. She starts crying and asks if she can..before, even if she promised to stay at his side but in the end.. He tells her that they are both students so it is impossible for them to immediately marry so that is an engagement ring. He promises to definitely come and get her after she graduates high school and when he is already working so there’s no need for her to be uneasy even if they don’t see each other. She says yes. He calls her name and says the promise’s kiss. They kiss each other. They were interrupted by the doorbell. Her father is screaming if Mirei is inside. Fumiya notices that it is already 1am. He apologizes for it is already this time that her birthday had passed. She looks flustered but manages to smiles and says that she’s going back. She tells herself that she finally got a promise so she cannot become a crybaby again. She exclaims that with just this ring, even if it is half a year or a year when they don’t see each other, she’ll be fine. Fumiya is surprised by her attitude. Mirei goes out the door to meet her worried parents who tell her not to make them worry about not coming home at this time. She tells them that for worrying them, she’ll properly study and not see Fumiya as much as possible and for some time, she won’t be coming back to this house.
Mirei stiffly walks away when her father asks if she will really be happy doing that. The mother says that actually they talked over about this for some time. Ever since she left Fumiya, they always see her lonely this whole month. If she is happier together with him, then it is okay for them to live together. She asks Fumiya if it won’t cause him trouble. Fumiya says no, he’ll be very delighted but Mirei seems to be already okay about not seeing each other for a year so there’s no need to insist on it. This surprises Mirei that she immediately apologizes and admits that she is acting brave for actually, she doesn’t want to leave his side even for a minute or a second. She kneels down to him and says that she can clean, cook and wash-dry the..and also study, she can do everything well so can she once again go in this house. He bends down to her and says that there’s no need for her to kneel because she is no longer a housekeeper. “From today on, you’ll be my future bride, come to my house.” This made her cry. As she takes Fumiya’s hand, the father freaks out about her being the future bride. Later on, the parents together with the couple had a laugh over Fumiya’s failed cake. Mirei thinks that from today on, she’ll smile everday at Fumiya’s side and live happily in this house. The end.
