The next morning now sobered up, Yoshida asks Sayu how she ended up at his apartment: she reveals that she had run away from her family and home in Hokkaido and has been surviving on her own by prostituting herself to random strangers and having one night stands with them to earn money to support herself. Knowing her backstory, Yoshida feeling bad and unable to kick her out of his house and their time of living together begins!
