Bringing viewers the 11th stand-alone episode in a collection of Keigo Higashino's best mystery short stories. Minekazu and his wife Chizuru have come to Akiyo's "Nakao Women's Clinic." In addition to administering fertility treatments, Akiyo also offers adoptions of orphans to couples who are still unable to have children. On this day, the Negishis have come to see a child Akiyo arranged for them. Chizuru is obviously overjoyed, but Minekazu finds himself pondering the implications of a "special talk" Akiyo mentioned. When Minekazu married Chizuru, he was adopted into the Negishi family by her father Yoshimasa and was put in charge of Negishi Corporation. Having achieved success by taking down others without a care for appearances, it's not unusual that Minekazu would be suspicious of Akiyo's words. Even Yoshimasa made sure Minekazu knew he needed to make sure Akiyo wouldn't cause any future trouble. But then, Minekazu is summoned by Akiyo to an establishment he used to visit frequently. There, she goes over 5 conditions for the adoption: They must love the child. They must be financially well-off. There cannot be any family discord. Both would-be parents must be in good health. And neither of them can have a criminal record... Minekazu offers Akiyo a special gift and a check, both of which she refuses. She then tells him that she looked him up, and his personal history is strikingly similar to hers. Listening to her, Minekazu begins to realize that her "special talk" may actually be her feelings towards him...
