Cover Page: “Sou wants to sever ties?! Anna’s feelings are..?” Anna looks dumbfound when Sou just told her not to talk with him. Wide-eyed Anna stutters, “..ah..you are saying..that you want to sever ties with me?” Holding his hand on his face to slightly cover it and gesturing ‘stop/no’ with his other hand, Sou says no, it isn’t. “I’m sorry. I didn’t say it clearly. About..that.. I’m not saying about ‘severing ties’..*pause* I meant, ‘temporarily have some space’. Including the thing with Aya and the others, lately, the main reason why we are quarrelling is ‘even if I like Anna but Anna isn’t aware of [/feel like] that, right? Even if we made up, it has no meaning so temporarily, let’s have some space between us and just have a break for a while. ...afterwards, if we can go back to become ‘really good childhood friends’, then that will be good. [There is a scene of the two guys studying together and Anna doesn’t want to anymore.] You also feel that is for the good, right?” Anna looks down then looks at him again. She thinks, “‘Good’? Is that so. For the ‘good’?” Somewhat sad yet trying to smile over this, Anna mutters that what Sou said is true. Then, there is a loud running sound coming towards them. They were surprised when Beni arrives and happily glomps Sou. She exclaims that she has found him. “I have been looking for you since I want to greet you a happy birthday!! *giving him a paper bag* It’s really great that I saw you. Here, this is a gift ♥ filled with love.” Looking aghast, Sou takes it and thanks her. Beni angrily shouts at Anna for wanting to monopolize Sou again this year. Flustered Anna says that it isn’t so for Hinata also came and it is the same as last year. Still trying to smile, Anna says that she’s going ahead. As Anna goes into her house, Beni tells Sou that they go to his house for she wants to see him open the gift. While gesturing ‘no’, Sou tells Beni that he has already got the gift and he still has a job interview. Beni goes into shock about Sou going to work.
At the train station, Hinata tells Anna that there is no need to her to go with him there. Anna says that she should and her mother said that she will fetch her later on. Anna smiles and says, “Hinata, I’m really thankful that you specially came back to cheer me up.” Hinata looks at her and then reminds her that he told her that she is stupid. Sweatdropping, Anna is puzzled then says ya, he told her that many times already. Hinata says, “But, the one who is really stupid ought to be Sou.” Flashback: While they were preparing for the surprise party, Hinata looked surprised and asked Sou if he is really going to tell that to Anna. Sou said that it is true, so he is informing Hinata first about it. Hinata asked if that is okay since Anna will be hurt. Sou sadly said that it is no big deal because if things are like that right now, he’ll just make her cry again. End flashback. Hinata seems to look somewhat sad and said, “Stupid Sou..” [<- I’m not sure if this one is part of the flashback or not.] Anna looks aghast and says that it is quite surprising that Hinata would really think that Sou is stupid. Hinata tells her, “Lean your ear closer, because for example..” Holding her hand to her ear as Hinata is going to whisper it to her, Anna says, “What is it..?” To her surprise, Hinata kisses her on the cheek instead. Holding where Hinata kissed her, Anna looks surprised at Hinata. Hinata tells her, “Sou hasn’t thought that when he isn’t around, there is a possibility that I can make a move on Anna. *smiles* He’s stupid, right?” Sou boards the train and waves goodbye, leaving Anna still looking shock and blushing that she can only thinks ‘!?’. Sou goes out of the convenient store and looks up the starry sky that had a shooting star flying over. Narration: “Left behind is the me who still cannot see clearly ahead. Star/s flew over. The two stars that stir me up.”
