Ryo and Mitsuko are on the embankment. Ryo tells Mitsuko that he knows about her father's genetic engineering research, and that Mitsuko was his star assistant. He says that he also knows that Mitsuko's father committed suicide for no apparent reason last month. Ryo also says that he knows that Mitsuko is a workaholic who rarely associates with men. He adds that although Mitsuko usually wears white panties, today for some reason she chose pink ones (Mitsuko reacts with an angry look to this remark). Ryo asks Mitsuko about the thugs who pursue her. Mitsuko tell Saeba that her father was doing research into sterilization drug for animals at the request of a certain pharmaceutical company. He developed a new microbe which makes animals unable to reproduce. But it was discovered that this microbe can affects people as well as pets, and that it's communicable. That's the reason why she is being pursued by merchants of death, who want this microbe as an ultimate weapon. Mitsuko tells Ryo that her father had destroyed everything related to his work to keep them from stealing his research, including himself. So she is the only person who currently knows about the research. Ryo says that they "still have a time" and suggests to "make a baby as soon as possible". Mitsuko slaps him with her handbag for that. She adds that it was her father's wish to use Ryo's services. She orders Ryo to kill her if her enemies will capture her before she will be able to develop a vaccine.

Ryo says that he understands her, and will do as she ordered.

She warns Ryo that she will fire if he will do something "funny" to her. Mitsuko says that she trusts him as a sweeper, but not as a man. Ryo says that it's not fair, as this is the only pleasure in his life.
