"You guessed it, Kyoya. We're going on a field trip."
"Haruhi won't be joining us...as her presence might harm our credibility."
Grouchy riser gives them a death stare.
"Oh, c'mon. You can't just lie here in bed all morning."
"For your information, I was up until 5 a.m."
"If you...feel like wasting...time...suit yourselves."
"Well, if that's what you want."
"Let's dress him to the nines and head to the Expo!"
The Host Club excited among the commoners.
"Mass pro-duc-tion! Mass pro-duc-tion!"
His effect on small children.
No wallet, no phone....but yes, it's Haruhi.
"How much money do you have on you, Haruhi?"
"Haruhi, how do I order?"
The third Ootori son is clueless in the ways of commoners.
Kyoya's "superior" attitude is chilling.
"Be sure to get a receipt. Tamaki will pay you back ten-fold."
A disgruntled Kyoya is "off his game."
"It benefits me nothing to keep up appearances in a place like this."
...though her thoughts are somewhat different.
Keen observation makes Kyoya seem psychic.
Haruhi learns about "The Ootori Legacy" and Kyoya's place in it.
The third son is serious, obedient and thoroughly frustrated...
...yet determined to bring merit to his family.
Seeing how it is, she shares her concern; but the "Cool" host avers...
"Oh no, Haruhi. I can think of nothing more fun."
"Why, Madam, you have an astonishing eye."
Artwork from the Shoin Komatsu collection.
"With all due respect, these are fake."
"For your sake, I hope you have a certificate."
...and Haruhi begins to suspect Kyoya may possess an altruistic side, after all.
A grateful...and wealthy...mall patron."
"Her husband is the CEO of a major electronics company."
"That ring...is unmistakable."
"Big surprise. Kyoya-senpai is Kyoya-senpai after all."
"Is melon the preferred flavor among snack makers?"
Learning about one another.
Meanwhile, on the rooftop plaza...
...the boys enjoy simple pleasures.
Calling for the Host Club Rangers.
Host Black...in other words...Kyoya.
Disturbed and fascinated, simultaneously.
Everyone reunites, but Haruhi is exhausted.
"I know you want me to believe that [your motives are selfish]..."
"...but there's no way you could have seen her ring."
"Acting like an egoist...when you're not...seems disconsonant."
"That's an intriguing notion, in its own way."
