Thanks to soula81's recommendation I started to watch this drama and now I'm complete addicted to it. I'll try to post recap as soon as the ep is out. Enjoy!
Ep 3 starts with Chiharu making breakfast for Haruko and even though she said she won't oversleep again they are still late for work. At work, Chiharu's co-worker told her that she's getting married to a customer she helped at the travel agency. Chiharu is happy for her but still thinking about the conditions for marriage.
Haruko's shop got an order for the opening ceremony of Grand Hills which was originally her design project. She decided to take the flowers to them.
Chiharu's colleague decided that they will go to a mixer (group dating).
Haruko brought the flowers to Grand Hills and met her boss. He promised he'll try to get her back to headquarter as soon as possible.
At home Haruko stared at her letter of resignation.
At the mixer, Chiharu just quietly eats her food so her colleagues try to lighten up the mood by suggesting that they play some games but Chiharu doesn't know any of them which darkens the mood even more.
Chiharu decided to leave the party and went to another bar and met her ex whom she saw at the travel agency the other day.
Haruko warned Chiharu not to get involved with married man especially when that's her ex but Chiharu assures her it's ok. Still Chiharu is impatiently waiting for her ex to call.
Chiharu went to the gallery that she got ticket for from Haruko and saw Kudo there. Kudo's kouhai introduced him to an artist guy who has this stuck up attitude and seems to look down on Kudo. Chiharu saw the whole thing and went after Kudo
Chiharu asked about Kudo's painting and said when he decided to draw again she'll be his #1 fan. But in the end she didn't manage to cheer him up.
Chiharu was going to visit her home but got a call from her younger sister who talked about her arranged marriage and asked why she threw away such opportunity.
Chiharu got a call from Keisuke (her ex) while waiting for Haruko in front of the house. Haruko came home and found Chiharu sleeping in front of the door.
Chiharu met up with her ex who apologized for contacting her everyday. Keisuke said it's tough being alone and held her hand. They went to a hotel room (a really nice one with great view!) . Keisuke was about to kiss her but she found an excuse to go to the bathroom because she's too nervous. She overheard Keisuke talking to his fiancee. Chiharu came out and said let's go back. Keisuke asked if she heard him. Chiharu said that they never fought when they were dating so it's good that he can fight with his fiancee. Chiharu told him to go back and Keisuke apologized and thanked her (so typical) . Chiharu said to herself she's an idiot after he left.
Chiharu met Kudo at the park and they apologized to each other about the other day.
Seems like there will be something going on with Haruko and the professor of the part-timer girl. He came to the shop to buy flowers for his mother's birthday but she can't see it. Haruko told him it's feeling that matters. Haruko teared up her resignation letter.
Haruko gave the house key to Chiharu who is super happy.
End of ep 3
Seems like the episode always ends with Chiharu and Haruko scene. They have such great friendship! Looking forward to ep 4! I'm rooting for Chiharu x Kudo. Maybe there'll be something going for Haruko and the professor as well?
