The news of M-24's getaway is relayed to Dr. Crombel by Yuri. Crombel is intrigued upon hearing that M-24 has surpassed the strength of the agents on guard in the facility where he was imprisoned, thinking of it as an indication that M-24's abilities are getting similar to that of original nobles. Yuri informs him that agents have already been sent on M-24's pursuit and Dr. Crombel orders him to keep all this a secret from the Union.
Meanwhile, Tao, Takeo and M-21 are engaged in their usual job as Ye Ran Special Security when the janitor greets the trio for always being bright and cheerful which brings happiness to others looking at them. He comments that it's nice for them to stay together as friends. When he leaves, the trio discuss how long they'll be able to live like this peacefully. Suddenly they hear the children approaching them, telling that they're off to go shopping for an exceptional meal for the day. Yuna and Suyi have decided to cook since they normally don't get that chance because of Seira 's extraordinary culinary skills. As they ask whether they would prefer anything, Tao and Takeo settles to spicy food. Yuna asks M-21 what he would like to which he replies that he's okay with anything she cooks. With the menu settled, the children walk away.
On the evening, M-24 is shown staggering down a dark alley where two lab agents confront him. They have come to get the research material back to the lab but M-24 puts up a fight. His moves are surpassed at first but he manages to impale both of them along a wall and escapes.
