After being locked inside the Ichijo warehouse, Raku seeks to clear up the confusion from the situation Kosaki found him and Chitoge in. Meanwhile, Ruri cooks up a second plot to allow Kosaki to show her feelings by making her join the swim team and asking Raku to teach her how to swim for the practice meet the next day, even if Kosaki has no real talent for it. Despite Raku's struggle to teach Kosaki to swim, he truly he enjoys the time he has with her. The next day at the practice meet, Chitoge gets a cramp while she swimming and drowns. Raku saved her and Shut checked on her. Though she was well he told Raku that she's not breathing and only way to make her is to pumping air mouth to mouth. Raku felt awkward but accepts. As he was going to do so, Chitoge gets back in her sense and hit him in the process. Shuu regrets for not being able to see their very first kiss. Meanwhile, Ruri got more suspicious about Raku and Chitoge's relationship.
