The physically powerful Noela accidentally breaks all of Kirio Drugstore's knives. She's scolded by Reiji, and together they go to the tool shop to do some shopping. However, for some reason it's dark and quiet inside the tool shop. Reiji experimentally calls out in a loud voice, and a blue-haired and bespectacled Paula finally lazily responds. Apparently she fell asleep on the floor because she's so busy. Reiji decides he'll try to do something to help Paula, who is overwhelmed with requests from the Red Cat Brigade and other townsfolk.
