His companion is Chizuru Mizuhara, who through his incomparable beauty and his beautiful behavior, manages to earn Kazuya's affection. But after reading similar experiences of other clients who had had Chizuru, Kazuya is sure that his loving personality and his warm Smile was just an act to play with your heart, and it qualifies it badly.

However, this unilateral exchange is interrupted when Kazuya discovers that the grandmother of him has suffered a collapse. They move towards the hospital and find the grandmother of Kazuya already in good condition. Baffled by the presence of Chizuru, the grandmother asks who this girl could be. In an impulse, Kazuya presents her as her a true girlfriend, which forces Chizuru to interpret the role of her. But with Kazuya still anchored to Mami, how long will this difficult client and the reluctant Rental girlfriend continue with the performance of him?
