N sees R sitting alone and wonders if he's crying. She's convinced that he's crying after recalling that he had already broken up with A. She wanted to use the hose to spray water on R so that others can't tell that he's crying.
R insist that he isn't crying.
H is think about R and A's break up and on the other hand she's thinking about hugging K.
H came to find K naturally. She decides not to tell K about anything so that it will not cause him unnecessary worries. She sees a pin on K's hair. *he looks so so so cute with the pin!!!* K's classmate lend him the pin as his hair is too long. H pretends to be angry about it as she enjoys making K's a little bit of trouble. She turns around and K is missing!
H wonders is she went overboard. K pushes H against the wall and said: "Hatori-chan, you loose."
K: "You should let me win once in a while."
H: "When did i ever win?"
K: "I'm not telling you."
H thinks to herself: When i'm with K, he seems to always allow me to be myself and making me willful. SOrry R, i'm very happy now."
R out from the bathroom and he received a call from A.
He picks up the phone.... *i wonder what happen*
It's going to be Christmas soon.
H in the toilet is wonder what she should do for Christmas with he first boyfriend and she heard some conversations outside talking. They are talking about R and A. A is absent from school again and they are putting the blame on R.
H urged them to stop talking bad about R when they don't even know him well enough. The girls starts to say that H is to blame as well.
News starts to spread in the school and everyone thinks that R is the bad guy. H is really pissed off and she swears to stop all these rumors.
H feels sad seeing R being bullied by their schoolmates. H dislike herself for not being able to do anything for R and she's always able to be by R's side when anything happens but not now.
N joins R when she sees him squatting at one corner listening to music. She asked if it's really ok for him to just let others bad mouth about him. He said he's fine with that as he thinks that he's really the worst for what he had done. R warns N not to hang around with him if not she might also be targeted however N decides to hang out with him.
They spend their time at the arcade center.
R starts to talk to N about the phone call from A. It's actually from A's parents. They scolded R for hurting their daughter. R thinks that it's natural for them to be mad at him. R then took out a letter to show N. The letter is from A. Seems like her parents confiscated her phone and she apologized on behalf of her parents for scolding R.
In the letter A wrote: Like how R told H that you will always stand by H. I will always stand by R. Now i too hope for H to be happy. I'm sure K will be mad if he sees this letter.
R thinks that it's best for A if she had nothing to do with him. Now, she is still only thinking about him.
R thinks that since junior high school onwards, he's not responsible enough.
N thinks that he's silly to think this way. She tells R to lift up his head and listen carefully.
N: "One has to be defeated before tasting success. It is not totally redundant to go out with a useless guy....
... reassured. A is able to find a better guy next time, life is long.
R: "N is like a granny."
N: "Are you trying to pick up a fight?"
R: "Thank You Nakajima."
R: "You seems to have saved me by calling me BAKA."
N blushed a little and she wonder if her mother nature causes her to care for R and wonders what's with R's smile just now.
R thanks N for keeping him company. N is having flashes for R's smile when he said thank you.
Someone shouted "Kyouko!"
It's R, he pulled N back quickly and a car drove past. It's still red light when she wanted to cross the road.
Kyouko is N's name which she uses in junior high school. She uncomfortable with people calling her by that name now.
R: "Be careful on your way home, Kyouko-chan." (he's doing it on purpose.)
H, on the train and she's thinking about R. She wonders how is he doing and if he's feeling miserable alone.
K calls H when she's thinking about R. K tells H that he's alighting at the next station. H blames herself for thinking about R when she's with K. K asked H if she's worried about R since just now.
K: "Hatori-chan, if you are so worried about Terasaka, why don't you stay by his side?"
K: "You can come back to me anytime. What's your reply?"
H rushes out of the train to hug K and replied with a loud yes.
K: "This is bad, you've alighted."
H: "I love K the most!"
K kisses H.
H thinks to herself "Wait for me R, tomorrow onwards i will be by your side!"
On the other hand, N keeps telling herself, no it can't be, no it can't be.
