Kate tells Mari that if she guess that is inside the box, she will open it, before calling her a bluff. However, Mari takes quickly a French encyclopedia before pronouncing thief in French and suggest that Kate look up the word because she said it. She notes the marker placed on the page and the good quality of the dictionary as counter to Kate's denial. Mari finally states that her underwear that Kate had stolen is inside the box. Risa tries to open the boys's room, but it boarded, which lead Gakuto and Shingo to think that Mari's break out plan has 'sprung into action'. Mari reveals to a hesitant Kate she knows since a long time ago she was stealing her things after asking her to open the box. Mari divines that Kate want her to found out she was stealing because Kate is in love with her. Kate denied it and hesitate to open the box, but Mari suggests that she don't want to be separate from her.
Mari says next that she will give Kate the bra that she is wearing if she open the box but Kate then engages her in a sumo fight, sending Mari to the ground as she states again that she is wrong. Mari ask why if she don't like her she put her underwear in a treasure box, as the box broke in the fight, revealing underwear to Kate's horror.
