When she was just about ready to punch them, Raku grabs her hand and runs away to the park. She complains that she had the situation at hand and decides to take a break at the bathroom. At the bathroom, Chitoge overhears a Yakuza member saying that he isn't convinced that Raku and Chitoge are really in a relationship, so Chitoge decides to amp up the act however, when she returns, Raku and Chitoge encounter with Kosaki which causes difficulty for Raku to tell her about them "dating". Chitoge ends up telling her the that their dating but gets mad at Raku almost spilling the truth and leaves. With Kosaki and Raku alone, he asks her if he seen his locket before.
