-Morning patrol for Miyuki & Natsumi finds Natsumi on Cloud 9 after getting another postcard from Toukairin. You know Miyuki, it's been a long while since you & Ken have been on a date...Why not ask him out?
-A stop at the Zapper shop for a visit with Daimaru & company (Megumi's helping Sena with washing the windows while Honda is working on a part for a racing car). So Honda was also into racing as well as being a mechanic after his wife passed away? With Megumi now school-aged he decided to settle down & that led him here to Zapper. BTW, what do you think about the work on these parts, Miyuki?
-Megumi's a really good girl, isn't she? She's become good friends with Maho, Yuuta & Shou (Who come by invite her to come play with them) but she may be a bit lonely when her dad Honda goes to help out some friends at an upcoming race. No worries, Honda-Between Miyuki, Natsumi & Sena Megumi will be just fine so do your best at the race!
-Hi, Ken! Daimaru & Sena say hi & want you to stop by a bit more often. Also, don't you think it's about time you asked Miyuki out again? Uh-oh, what's this..."Dating Hot-Spots"? Woo hoo! Also suggestions from Yoriko, Aoi, the Chief & even from Saori (Even though no one's paying any attention to what she's saying) give Ken food for thought.
-"Your uncle from Detroit sent you a New Year's Card"? Ken, you can do better than that! BTW, you're treating Yoriko, Aoi & Saori to lunch for them coming up with the suggestions for a date with Miyuki!
-More research by Ken after work & by the time he gets home...A plan for the perfect date!
-Next day at work...He finally did it! Ken asked Miyuki out on a date tomorrow on their day off & she said "Okay"! BANZAI!!!
-Have a good time, Miyuki! Natsumi, if you're going to be bored most of the day why not give Toukairin a call?
Meanwhile, Ken's ready as well but an emergency call from Sena might change things a bit...
-Ken shows up late at the train station but with good reason: Daimaru & Sena had planned to take Megumi to an amusement park but Daimaru's back went out so Sena has to stay home to take care of him. They asked Ken to take Megumi to the park for them so he brought her with him to meet Miyuki (Who understands & is glad to see Megumi as well).
-Let's see...4 pictures, a note, a postcard & one bored Natsumi back at the apartment. You might as well call him, you know...It would beat just sitting around here all day, wouldn't it?
Meanwhile, the "Ken & Miyuki Date Surveillance Team" (Aoi, Yoriko & Saori) are staked out at one of the places on his schedule but I think they'll be waiting for a LONG while...
-There sure are a lot of families here at this amusement park, aren't there? First, the spinning cups followed by a ride in the observation tower, a try at a game by Ken & a water ride before a break for ice cream. Megumi seems to be really enjoying herself & that's good to see. Come to think of it, the three of them (Ken, Miyuki & Megumi) do look like a family together, don't they?
-After buying a balloon for Megumi Ken spots..A purse snatcher! He doesn't get very far though thanks to Ken but in the confusion Megumi is separated from Miyuki so she & Ken split up to find Megumi.
-By early evening, no success but wait-There she is, sitting on a park bench! Megumi did just what her dad said to do if she got lost-"Stay in one place & I'll come find you". It's OK Megumi...Shall we go home now?
-Back at Zapper again...It was fun today wasn't it, Ken (Plus Megumi finally warmed up to you)? Also, Natsumi drops by after returning from Toyama Prefecture & her visit with Toukairin bearing a souvenir (A bottle of sake from Toyama). How about a drink to end the day, everyone (Except for Megumi of course-She's sound asleep
...Oh yeah, our "Date Surveillance Team"-They're still at the Cafe de Bokuto waiting for Ken & Miyuki to show up! Isn't it time you all went home?
Next time-File 9, "Women at War! Return of the Arch-Rival!!"
