Raindrops keep falling on the car on the way to the synesthesia event, making it hard for Mia to focus. She sees a bunch of colors from the sound of the rain and finds it hard to concentrate when her parents say stuff.
They finally get there, though, and Mia takes off her coat and introduces herself to everyone.
Everyone starts talking about what type of synesthesia they have. Some people see personalities for numbers along with colors. For example, 8 is a flirt, whereas 3 is super shy… well, depending on who you ask in the group.
Mia looks over at her parents and notices their shocked faces; they're totally not sure what to make of all this.
Adam starts talking and Mia likes how confident he is.
Once the intros are done, everyone breaks off into smaller groups to chitchat. The actual work doesn't start until tomorrow, so tonight is really informal and a chance for everyone to get to know each other.
Adam and Mia go outside and talk for a little while before he asks if he can kiss her.
Mia's mom walks up and finds the lovebirds making out before announcing they need to head out for the night. Mia is mortified.
They get home and Mia can't find Mango, so she looks outside. It's chilly out there, but luckily she finds him, picks him up, and takes him inside.
She cuddles up to him to get him warm, and then she heads to bed. Mia wakes up a couple times in the night from Mango's wheezing.
When she wakes up a few hours later, she nudges Mango but he won't respond. She yells for her parents to come help, and they do.
Before Mia even knows what's happening, her mom is on the phone to the vet, who can't get in to the office since the streets are flooded.
Luckily Mia's dad has a helicopter. They make their way outside to it, climb in, and get ready to take off.
Mia sooths Mango by telling him he'll be better really soon.
Just then, Mia screams for them to stop—something is wrong. So before they go anywhere, her dad checks Mango again. And he's stopped breathing; poor Mango is dead.
