Sumire tries to serve them. However, as soon as Kanna sees Sumire’s face, she starts to talk about wanting to change the person in charge. Even after that, she stubbornly refuses to have contact with Sumire. Sumire agonises about her face being the reason. Then she recalls that Kanna share the same first and names as her best friend in high school. However, the Kanna in the photo which Sumire still carries about with her, has no resemblance to the Kanna now. Could Kanna have had plastic surgery … …?!
