During break, Machida Nina takes Kazuki School to the school cafeteria and tells him to buy bread whenever she asks. At this moment, Tachikawa Sayuri (Michishige Sayumi) and her two friends, who do not like Machida Nina, scheme to get Sato Kazuki and Machida Nina expelled from school.

Sato Kazuki walks around the school and sees a bunch of girls recite mathematical figures. He wonders to himself what they are doing. A girl then comes close to him and tells him that they are practicing to become the math president. Meanwhile, Machida Nina sits on a bench and a teacher sits next to her. Machida Nina tells her that she misses her older sister a lot. Her older sister went missing, right after she became the math president.
