"Hikari II tires of eating bugs and meat, and wants to ingest more life energy, so it suggests that Shohei should kill Orin so that it can eat his soul." said Ronnette.
"Hikari temporarily gets amnesia and Orin convinces her that he's her boyfriend." said Crystal.
"Shohei comes into Orin's office to kill him, but it backfires, leading to a chase and the Sharks' end at the pier as Orin and Sango confess their love for each other." said Chiffon.
"That was part one of the finale, and let's get cracking in part 2!" the trio said in unison.
THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT
At the pier, Shohei was watching as the Sharks have died. As their souls begin to rise out of the water, he pulls out a sack. As each soul rises out of the water one by one, they come after Shohei, who grabs each one and puts them in the sack one at a time. As the sun sets, Shohei then runs back to the flower shop, and good timing too, because Mr. Gardenia was going to sleep.
"Pant... pant... Here you go."
"Don't just stand there and pant; feed me!" Hikari II demanded.
Shohei dumps the souls into Hikari II's mouth.
"Mmm... Piranha's soul is too sour! Unagi's is bitter, but not bad. Sango's tastes peachy! And Orin... his soul tastes like surf and turf. Nicely done!"
Shohei then runs off and exits the flower shop.
"What have I done? I'm a murderer!" Shohei thought to himself frantically. "I got to go talk to Hikari to get it off my chest."
Shohei makes it to Hikari's mansion and rings the doorbell. She answers.
"Who is it?"
"Hikari, it's me!"
"Shohei! I missed you after my amnesia occured! Come in!"
Shohei comes in, takes off his shoes, heads to Hikari's room upstairs, and comes inside.
"Shohei, when I realized where I was last night, I was scared, confused, angry! I can't believe Orin tricked me! That callous monster! I have to tell you this secret: I wished that he and his gang were dead."
"This is going to be hard for me to say, but... I think your wish came true."
"It did? Oh my God!"
"Yes. Orin and the Sharks were chasing after this kid, and the kid jumped out of the way, but the Sharks plummeted into the sea. Piranha and Unagi got eaten by a huge shark..."
"The irony! And what about Orin and Sango?"
"Caught in the undertow; couldn't escape, and they kissed as they drowned."
"Oh my God, that's awful! I didn't wish for them to die that way! Oh Shohei!"
Hikari hugs Shohei.
Shohei blushes and asks, "So, did you get all your memories back?"
"Do you want to come over to my house for dinner? My mom is making my favourite."
Meanwhile at the flower shop, Mr. Gardenia was sound asleep when...
Mr. Gardenia wakes up and says, "What the?"
Mr. Gardenia goes down stairs and sees the plant, which is now 2 meters tall.
"Did that plant just..? No. No, that's just silly. Plants can't talk!"
"Except me." the plant spoke.
"WHAA?! What do you want? And how did you get so big so fast?" asked Gardenia.
"I want to eat souls! Yours might sustain me for... how old are you?"
"What are you implying?"
"Your soul might hold me over for quite a while with your girth!"
"HOW... dare you! I resent that!"
Just then, a robber breaks in.
"All right, don't move!" the robber shouted as he aims his gun at Mr. Gardenia. "This is a stick-up!"
"What do you want?!!"
"I'm here for all the money you have! Where's the money?!"
"You're not getting any! It's mine!"
"You have 5 seconds before I shoot you in the heart, old man! 5... 4... 3... 2..."
"It's... it's inside the plant!"
"What?" said Hikari II.
"Thank you, sir! Heheheheh..." the robber chuckled.
The robber comes over to the plant and knocks on it.
"Hey hey, what am I, a door?!" Hikari II sasses.
"Did that plant just say something? Where's my money, you overgrown vegetable?" said the robber.
"Maybe it's in my stomach! Hop in!"
Before the robber could escape, Hikari II devours him, and the gun fires off as the robber screams in pain.
Mr. Gardenia was completely horrified. He says, "Dear Lord, what has Kazama bred?"
Meanwhile in Shohei's bedroom, he and Hikari were sitting on the bed.
"Wow, I forgot how good your mama's cooking was." said Hikari.
"Well, the previous times you came to my house for dinner was years after the day my dad started travelling abroad on business."
"Oh yeah, I remember those days. Well, I must be going. See you tomorrow, Shohei."
Hikari kisses Shohei on the cheek and leaves.
"G'night!" Shohei said.
Later that night, Shohei was sound asleep. He dreams that he's at the flower shop, sweeping as usual, when the ghosts of the Sharks appear.
"Shohei, you little mouse..."
"You did this... "
"You will pay... "
"What they said..."
"Oh my God..." Shohei said in fear.
"You've killed us!"
"You should be punished!"
"Be given the chair!"
"What they said!"
Shohei covers his ears and cries, "I don't want to hear this!"
As the ghost Sharks chastise Shohei, a giant Hikari II the size of a mountain eats them.
Hikari II belches and says, "I have no idea how they've escaped my gullet, but they can't hurt you anymore. Though I can't say the same for your boss!"
Mr. Gardenia's unconscious body is then placed right in front of Shohei.
"And with the soul of your beloved Hikari-chan, I might be the girl of your dreams!"
Hikari was bound in one of the plant's vines, struggling to get free.
"Help me, Shohei!"
"No, please! Don't eat her! I beg you!" Shohei cried.
Shohei wakes up to find that it's all a dream.
"A dream... all just a dream. Or is it? Hikari II will keep eating and eating until there's nothing left."
Later at the flower shop, Shohei was still sweeping, and has a look of guilt on his face.
Hikari thought to herself, "I wonder what's wrong with Shohei? I'm worried."
Mr. Gardenia comes up to Shohei and says, "Kazama, may we have a heart-to-heart chat? Meet me in the closet."
The two of them go into the closet and Mr. Gardenia closes the door.
Mr. Gardenia says in a hushed voice, "All right, Kazama, spill the beans! You said you bought this from my good friend Chang, right?"
"And this plant is...?"
"From what I can tell, a butter-wort/flytrap hybrid."
"Ah, and what does the Venus flytrap eat?"
"Really? Well, I should know, because YOUR PLANT EATS PEOPLE'S SOULS?!"
"No! I mean, yes, I mean..!"
"I've heard enough! Either you get rid of that abomination or you're fi- "
Just then, Mr. Gardenia started to wheeze as he grasps his chest.
"Oh no! You're having a heart attack!" said Shohei. "Let me try to help!"
"Can I call 911?"
"No... let me die with dignity."
And so, Mr. Gardenia died from a heart attack... with dignity. Shohei grabs his soul and quickly feeds it to Hikari II.
"Bleggh, it tastes horrible, but it'll have to do." says Hikari II as it smacks its lips. "A slight aftertaste of sake, though."
Shohei says to himself, "My God, I can't believe this is happening..."
"What's happening?" Hikari asked.
"Aah! Hikari! I have some bad news..."
Some time later, a funeral was held in Mr. Gardenia's honor.
"Heart attack, huh?" said Daisuke. "I should've known that it would happen to Old Man Gardenia sooner or later."
"Daisuke, respect your elders!" Makoto scolded. "He may have been mean to Shohei and any customers that weren't pretty girls, but he doesn't deserve that insult!"
"I was just joking, jeez!"
"Well, it's not very funny!"
"Quiet, you guys," said Natsumi. "This is a funeral, not a baseball game."
Mr. Chang had a few words to say.
"What can I say about my friend, Gardenia? Since we were small, we were good friends. Skipping stones, catching bugs, blah blah blah..."
As Mr. Chang talked about his and his late friend's childhood, Shohei was beside himself, shaking.
Shohei thought to himself, "It's all my fault... it's all my fault that he died... I had no idea that this plant wanted to eat life energy; why didn't I bone up on the knowledge of Venus flytraps before I bought it?"
"Are you okay, Shohei?" asked Hikari.
"Huh? Y-yeah! I'm just mourning the loss of our boss."
"Well, please calm down," said Natsumi. "Mr. Chang is naming heirs now."
"And now, I will read inheritances. 'To my wife, who left me, you will get my jewelry. To my son and daughter, you get my collection of music, but try not to scratch the vinyl. And since Hikari suggested this, I will give my flower shop to someone that I kind of consider family despite his flaws: I give Kazama Shohei ownership of my flower shop.' Did you hear that, boy? You're one of the youngest owners of a business as of today."
"WHAT?! Me?" Shohei said in shock right before he faints, much to the bewilderment of his friends.
"In the end, Shohei has inherited Mr. Gardenia's flower shop after his death." said Ronnette.
"The old saying 'The Meek Shall Inherit' really happens here." said Crystal.
"Maybe he'll make the flower shop more fun!" said Chiffon.
Ronnette says, "Yes, he might, Chiffon... Ahem. And soon enough, you'll find out about the plant..."
