The episode opens with the wife of the village chief asking her son to carry some food to Seishu, as no one else in the family bothers to eat her cooking. Meanwhile, two of Naru's friends come with Naru to revisit their "base" in Seishu's new house, but Seishu gets angry and kicks them all out. Later, the son of the village chief, Hiroshi, delivers his mom's cooking but finds that Seishu has worked himself near death. Naru arrives in time to save Hiroshi and the food, and shows Hiroshi the effort that Seishu puts into his work.
The next day, Naru arrives to find Seishu collapsed from exhaustion, and he is rushed to the hospital where he is jokingly warned not to make any moves on the nurse because she's already married. After a brief scare with a near-empty IV bag, Naru holds the nurse call button tight and pledges to protect Seishu from a ghost. Seishu sees Naru and her friends off and gets some advice from an elderly patient in the hospital, but when he is discharged the next day, Seishu is told that he was the only patient there.
