After school, Kyoko asks Raku to clean the pool with the rest of friends the day after. The next day, he comes to the pool with Chitoge and Shū. Soon after, Kosaki, Haru, Ruri, Fuu, Tsugumi, Paula, Marika, and Honda arrive.
Raku thanks everyone for coming and tells them that they can use the pool after cleaning it. The gang surprisingly enjoy themselves as they play around while cleaning the pool. After cleaning, the gang eat lunch. While eating, Haru notices that Paula isn't eating with them. She decides to accompany Paula by climbing up the tree Paula was sitting on. Paula tells Haru to climb down claiming it was dangerous, but Haru insisted she eat her lunch with Paula.
The two then proceed to talk about Paula's close relationship with Tsugumi and how she always watches over her. Haru proceeds to tell Paula about her own relationship with Kosaki as a sister and how much she loves and protects her from any danger just like Paula toward Tsugumi. Haru tries to persuade Paula to come swim with them but with no prevail.
As Paula walks around the pool, Raku sees her and proceeds to pour a bucket of water on her. When Raku asks a surprised Paula what was going on, Paula explains that she's never personally interacted with several people before and is afraid that she will not work out well with them. Raku scolds Paula as he tells her that she shouldn't be afraid until she actually tries talking to everyone.
A stubborn Paula finally agrees to hang out with everyone. Haru is happy to see Paula finally play with them and excitedly pushes Paula into the pool. To everyone's surprise, Paula can't swim and struggles to keep herself above the water.
