Poppy recounts her VERY busy weekend to Erdene. It's hard to believe it all happened in one weekend! Erdene asks about Tora contacting her, but like the good friend she is, doesn't push it when Poppy doesn't have the energy to talk about it.
They look at Erdene's new makeup stash, while Poppy thinks about Gil being away for two days. SUS. Turns out Poppy has been feeling the susness too, and that was one of her motivations for looking for a part time job. She noticed it had to do with the notebook, and we wonder whether Poppy will figure out the notebook thing before Tora has the chance to tell her about it.
Poppy contemplates about what great friends Erdene and Jacob are, and notes, very relatably, that she has a hard time talking about difficult topics, and has also gotten into a cycle of conforming to people's expectations of her.
However, this self-perception is now changing, due to the presence of a very special someone who is currently walking into the office. A certain someone who is trying to now convince himself that he only has a "schoolboy crush." The audactity! The denial!
Quincy and Erdene head into a meeting, and Poppy, wanting to generously share her bento box, looks around for Tora, only to be pulled into a storage closet (storage closet!) by Tora, who, denial notwithstanding, admits that he misses her!
