About five weeks later, Suzu discovers she is pregnant. Learning from a book about the legend that a human being will replicate some 300 million years of biological evolution during the nine months as a fetus, makes Suzu determined to give birth to her child. However, she is not able to broach the topic to Takeshi. The job she has finally secured does not work out as she thought too.

However, her desire to raise the child on her own does not change despite her mother’s vehement opposition. Her hidden past has something to do with her stubbornness.
