Overview Edit

Raku and Chitoge experience difficulty in putting up their fake relationship act after their first date, and since Kosaki met them at the park for their date, she spread word about them dating to their classmates. They try telling their classmates that their relationship is fake but Chitoge's bodyguard, Claude, watches over them. This gives Raku a hard time to tell Kosaki the misunderstanding of his relationship with Chitoge. When he believes he finally has a chance to tell Kosaki the truth, she dismisses it and talks about how much of a good person he is. As Raku was ready to tell her, a guy accidentally bumps into Kosaki and makes her drop a key out of her bag. Kosaki immediately picks it up and claims that it was a key for a bookshelf and runs off. Raku returns to the classroom and notices that Chitoge is making a notebook to help her make friends. Chitoge becomes furious at first but willingly accepts Raku's offer to help her make the notebook. Meanwhile, Kosaki returns home and brings out the key she dropped earlier. She looks at it and regrets not telling Raku that she had a key that could unlock his locket.
