Asuna takes the audiovisual bidirectional communication probe to give Yuuki the experience of attending school for a day. Yuuki requests Asuna to take her to her old house to see it one last time, since the house will be demolished soon. Yuuki says that her mother does not understand what her feelings are, which Asuna can relate with her own mother as well. Although Yuuki denies that she is as strong as Asuna, Yuuki says that she is honest with her feelings. Following Yuuki's advice, Asuna goes home and convinces Kyouko to log in to ALO so she could express how she feels. At the log cabin while it is snowing, Kyouko is reminded of when her parents were proud of her and how they wished to protect their home for Kyouko to always return back to. Asuna then reveals that life is not about just doing things for oneself, and the happiness of others could make one happy as well. The next morning, Kyouko tells Asuna that she has to prove herself if she says that she is strong enough to live a selfless life.
