The Labyrinth of Reunion is the 6th chapter of the Skip Beat! manga series.
Three days have passed. Kyoko is working at a gas station. Kyoko knows that Daruyama's boss is not too happy with her decisions even though he hasn't said a thing.
Kyoko has been covering for another girl working in the gas station.
Kyoko has been thinking about the audition, about what Ren told her and about all the things she thinks she can't do right now. While Kyoko tends a bruised ankle
with her co-worker, they see a new commercial on TV with Sho. Her co-worker is very happy, though Kyoko, trying to hide her grudges.
The girls are called outside, where a mini-van is parking for service. Kyoko sees the letters on its side and can't believe it, the van was from Sho's agency.
And from it, the man himself steps out to stretch a little. Kyoko would very much like to send him flying with a good hit, but instead attempts to hide herself, since she hasn't
exactly become what she promised him she would. Her co-worker meanwhile is happily asking Sho for an autograph which he is glad to give. The girl talks about the TV CM they just saw and says her co-worker (Kyoko) loved it! Kyoko attempts to stop her from going further and can't believe she said such a lie, when her cap falls right in front of him!
But to her utter surprise, Sho just smiles and says that a handshake would be ok, and does so. Sho then happily turns back, to get into the minivan.
Kyoko stops him and asks him if he doesn't recognize her. He smiles a little slyly with a "tsk" and says that he is sorry, but he doesn't remember every single one of his fans' faces.
Poor Kyoko is left behind, wondering that even though she cut and dyed her hair he coudn't even recognize her. In the van, Sho's manager wonders where she has seen that face before, while Sho thinks that it's kind of a reminiscent of Kyoko, who he remembers as a cute, nice, long dark haired girl surrounded by flowers.
Back to Kyoko, her fury has awakened her evil spirits. When she is in home, she prepares to get drunk as she thinks how mortifying
it is to have been thinking all days about him in one way or the other while he just forgot her like that.
Kyoko thinks that she is lost in a labyrinth because she doesn't know how to get away from the problems and stress Sho causes in her. However the boss visits her and gives her a couple of words of advice, after which Kyoko is back to determining to enter the showbiz world!
