Meanwhile at RINOM, the RINOM's president, Noritake Kaoruko, says that Ruri had make a great fashion design. Then, Kaoruko says to Ruri to erase some lace and ribbons at the design. While erasing, she thinks that she wanted to add the lace all over the design. Then Ren, Ruri's friend appeared. He said he was free and Ruri replied that they will meet this evening.
That evening, Ruri shows her design of Goth Loli to all of her friends, and they said that the design is cute. While Ruri is walking, she bumps into Chocola. Her design is all on the floor, and Chocola helps Ruri to take the designs. Ruri looks at Chocola and says that she is beautiful. Chocola says thanks, and Ruri says that she wanted to make a lots of designs, and invited her to come to her shop, Lapis Lazuli. At her shop, Ruri makes an extra fashion design, and everyone was impressed. Ruri says she wanted to open her shop due two month, but Ren says no, because they can't being so hurried. But Ruri changes the topic that if Ren is always get angry, he will get old. Ren blushed. Then Ren said, what's the name of the shop, and Ruri replied that she will use her name 'Ruri' that spelled in English, Lapis Lazuli.
Back at RINOM, Ruri says that she wanted to stop working at RINOM, and Kaoruko surprised. Then Ren appeared. He also said that he wanted to stop working there. Ruri explains why they wanted to stop working, that she wanted to open a new shop for her, and Ren just helping her. Kaoruka sighed, and she said she understands. But in one condition:- They need to finish they work that they had now. They thanked her very much.
At morning, she will work at RINOM while at night, she will work at Lapis Lazuli for the opening. She sighed and hoped if her body can be into two. When working at RINOM, Kaoruko ask Ruri if she can draw back the design she had drawed. And Kaoruko ask one more, Ruri's design, One Piece is really demanding, so she need to copy 10 more designs. Ruri says she can't, but Kaoruko says that design was really popular. The costumers really like that design. But Ruri was in a tired mood and feels sad, so she agree.
After one month, at Lapis Lazuli, Ruri ask for forgiveness because it's been a while, she didn't came to Lapis Lazuli. Then Ren and her friends ask, "What are we going to do with this designs that wanted to display?" "Is it okay if the chandelier put here?" "Please look up these design." Ruri gets so dizzy that she ask everyone to stop it, and Ren says, "Even if you say like that, we still have one month left for our shop to display! You've heard it, display!" Then Ren said, "Ruri... your face looks so pale. That's why I said, think first before..." Then Ruri shouted. She said she had her own method, and they wouldn't understand. Then everyone feels like they wanted to go back to their houses. But Ren said that she don't have to force them, and Ruri makes a mad face and think, "Force? What force? I don't force you to help me!"
That night, Ruri forgot to take back her design, and then she found out that Ren was there, wanted to go back. Then when she found out her design was now torn into pieces, and she misunderstood that Ren was the one who had torn it. But he make a innocent and serious face, and said that he didn't do it at all. Then Ruri said that Ren was the one torn the design, and then Ren says he wanted to stop woking at Lapis Lazuli, and so the others. Ruri got mad and said she don't care at all. The next day Chocola came. Then she found Ruri was laying on the floor, and she bought her some pillows and blankets to take some rest. Then Ruri gets up, but Chocola said that she need a rest because she was still ill and her face looks pale. Then it's Chocola turn to invite her to her shop, and Ruri asks is Chocola had a shop, and Chocola replied it is, then at Chocolat Noir she said that Ruri needs to wait for a while. Then Chocola appeared with an ice-cream-liked chocolate named Parfait, and Ruri ate it and she feels happy and surprised that Chocola had a nice shop. Then Chocola remind her that she had a friend that waits her. Then Chocola said that she had taken her life, it is her ego. Then Cacao appeared, saying that it's good to have costumer. Than, another costumer came. The costumer may be Kaoruko, or maybe it's unknown. Then Ruri goes where Ren and her friends location is. She ask them to go back to Lapis Lazuli, but Ren said no, but Ruri begged them. Then they apologized her, and they get back to Lapis Lazuli.
