Keiichi has a nightmare about Belldandy. He wakes up to discover the ground inside the temple covered with snow; however, the ground outside is snow-free. Skuld identifies the problem as a bug and creates a bug-catching machine, setting everything back to normal. She notes that the bugs form when Belldandy and Keiichi are too close. The Almighty notifies Belldandy that she will be recalled in three days. When the couple travels to school, they do so separately, prompting rumors that they have split up. Once Belldandy tries to get closer to Keiichi, explosions cause chaos and Belldandy flees. Megumi suggests that Keiichi buy a ring for Belldandy, and so he works part-time jobs to earn money to pay for one. Urd and Skuld identify a cherry tree near the temple as the source of the bugs, but on informing Belldandy, Belldandy becomes upset.
