Esmeraude attacks a local cram school, altering the behaviour of the students there. When Ami investigates, she is subjected to a series of hallucinations by Esmeraude's Droid.

Summary

Esmeraude's in the bath, talking to herself about how beautiful she is, when Saffir appears. He wants her to get busy and finish her mission, not waste time in a bath. She just brushes him off, as she's already located another negative energy point. Esmeraude appears over the city (in a bathrobe and her hair in a towel) and places another figurine at a cram school, leaves the usual droid to watch it, and infects the class with Dark Power.

The next morning at school, everyone is looking at the exam results. Ami's #1 again! Usagi's glad for her, but behind them some other girls are saying it's strange Ami is always at the head of the class. Usagi tells Ami to ignore them, it's just envy. Ami says it's OK, as she is used to this kind of behavior about her good grades. Usagi is used to it about her bad grades.

Suddenly Umino and several other boys appear (all affected by Dark Power), and holding a sheet of paper he claims he found a cheat sheet in Ami's desk! The others start in, saying it's odd someone who hangs around with Usagi could do so well. Usagi and Naru stand up for Ami, but the others won't listen, and wonder why they are taking Ami's side. Not even a direct appeal from Naru affects Umino. Mako arrives and when they make the mistake of telling her to get out of their way they go flying for their trouble. Ami asks Mako to stop fighting. She doesn't care what the others are saying, and she's more upset over the fact she missed a question on the exam.

Ami, Usagi, and Mako are walking home. Mako fumes over what everyone was saying about Ami, and wonders at their strange behavior. Chibi-Usa catches up with them, and asks if the rumor that Ami is cheating is true!
