April brings Sawako into her second year of high school, and she is happy that she gets to be in the same class as Kazehaya, Ayane and Chizu again. Things have become strained between Sawako and Kazehaya ever since the Valentine's Day incident. In class, a new classmate, Miura Kento takes his seat next to Sawako. He is flamboyant and very open with her, which stirs up jealousy on Kazehaya's part. Kazehaya decides to wait for Sawako to finish tending the flowerbeds. He watches her work from the classroom window. Then, he encounters Ayane who offers to help him in his pursue of love (for Sawako, although it isn't explicitly stated). However, he tells her that he would prefer to tell the person themselves about his feelings for them, instead of involving a third party. Ayane notes that Kazehaya is the type of person who does not like others interfering with his affairs. Sawako finds Kazehaya waiting for her, and he asks her if he was too conceited to consider himself as her closest male friend (due to Kento's previous display of closeness towards her). She panics, not knowing how to reply and Kazehaya notices this. He apologizes for troubling her, and leaves. Kento sees Kazehaya leaving the classroom, and notices Sawako still inside at a loss for words. He makes the connection between them, calling the two 'an interesting combination'.
