In hopes of getting closer to Mai and celebrate her return to town, Saki plans a party at her families bakery. But did she bite off more than she can chew?

Goyan talks to Karehan

Meanwhile, Karehan reports to his master Akudaikan. Karehan regretfully informs him that someone interfered with his ploy to seize the Fountain of the Sun. Goyan interrupts him to explain that the mysterious force who stopped him was that of the legendary warriors, Pretty Cure.

As the end of the school day approaches, Saki chats with her friends, Hitomi, Yuuko, and Kenta, and they decide to give Mai a warm welcome in form of a party. Saki turns around to invite Mai- only to see that she has already left.

Saki searches for her and spots Mai enjoying the windy weather. Flappy and Choppy take this opportunity to tell them about the evil group Dark Fall that plans to use the power of The World Tree and its fountains to resurrect their ruler, Akudaikan. The corruption of the tree and the fountains would have devastating consequences to the environment and all living things. The only fountain still uncorrupted is the Fountain of Sun. Saki and Mai point out to them that they are still middle school students, but this doesn't waver their belief that Saki and Mai will save everyone as Pretty Cure.

FwPCSS02 Mix Communes

Saki uses the Mix Commune

Saki remembers her plans for the party and quickly runs home to prepare. She heads inside to have a snack first, only for Flappy to start speaking inside her pocket. Minori is confused at her sister's odd behaviour and Saki runs to her bedroom to scold Flappy. Instead of listening though, he complains that he is hungry and instructs Saki on how to take care of him with the use of the NigiNigi and ResuResu cards.

At Mai's, she stands outside to observe the sky. Her brother notices how deep in thought she is and asks her about it. She brings up meeting Saki again after having only a brief encounter with her in the past, causing Kazuya to remark that it must be fate. He reminds her that dinner is ready and heads back inside, leaving Mai to think about this new girl.

FwPCSS02 Hyper Focus

Saki and Mai discuss Mai's tendency to strongly focus and forget her surroundings

The next day, Saki, Yuuko, Hitomi, and Kenta are preparing for the party. Kenta and Saki start to bicker while Hitomi and Yuuko watch and remark on how common this situation is for the two of them.

Outside, Mai approaches the bakery and asks Saki's mother, Saori if she is home. She is brought inside to wait at the garden until the party begins, and happily starts to draw the pretty scenery surrounding her.

After a while, she notices Saki is there and to her shock, sees the table before her is now entirely decorated. She apologizes for being so absorbed in her art, and explains that she tends to focus very strongly- to the point where she forgets her surroundings. Saki calls this a good thing and admits that she struggles with focus personally, then suggests to Mai that she address her without formalities. She also requests to greet Mai the same way.

FwPCSS02 Power Jump

Bloom and Egret learn to use their overflowing power in battle

Karehan jokes about this heartwarming scene by interrupting them and introducing himself and remarking that the girls may address him as "Karecchi". He summons an Uzaina from a flower bush and quickly they transform into Cure Bloom and Cure Egret.

But, as the girls are still novices to fighting, they are thrown down by the bush monsters' vines. Karehan demands they hand over Flappy and Choppy, but the girls refuse while Saki angrily chews him out for ruining the party. At Flappy's advice they begin to focus their power into their hands, throwing the large enemy away into the air. Then focusing the energy into their legs they are able to control their amazing new strength and allow them to swiftly land and continue fighting. They then use Twin Stream Splash to defeat the Uzaina and send Karehan
FwPCSS02 Friends

on his way.

At the Party, Saki and her friends quickly finish the cake. Mai thanks them all for being so kind to her and throwing this party as other students begin to arrive. Saki goes on to point out that she ended up inviting their entire class and Kenta expresses annoyance, claiming they won't have enough food before he starts chasing her around. While watching his display Mai starts to laugh.
