Cover page: “Actually, there are a lot of things that I want to tell you.” Soon, everyone is talking about the Christmas party on the 24th, their last day of classes for the year. A couple of classmates ask Sawako if she is coming. She asks if she can come. They then urge her to come. Sawako feels high about it because she has been asked to tell a Christmas ghost story. Ayane scolds her as to what this is about and why it became like this. Sawako just happily says that this is ‘the two of us spending Christmas together’. Ayane shouts at her that isn’t ‘the two of us’ but, ‘being together with everyone’. Ayane can’t help but feel helpless for Sawako is saying that she already said ‘be with everyone’. While Chizuru is still in a daze, Ayane asks Sawako if this is really alright. Sawako says yes, she did wanted to spend it with Shouta, and besides, it would be more fun if she spends it together with everyone especially Chizuru and Ayane. Chizuru tells Sawako that last year she wasn’t able to go. Ayane looks at Shouta direction and mentally asks him what’s going on. Shouta remembers when Sawako wanted to join the Christmas party last year. Kent goes to Shouta and asks him why he isn’t spending Christmas alone with Sawako and something about there’s no need to support Soichi who is very excited over the party. Shouta says that it isn’t so. Just before Shouta leaves, Kent asks if it is for Sawako. Blushing Shouta exclaims that he is annoying. Kent laughs and says that is love, and it isn’t easy for them to go steady so should it be better if they spend it with only the two of them. Surprised Shouta exclaims that that no [/can’t be] is no. When Soichi and friends call out to Shouta to look at something [for the party?], Shouta quickly leaves. Kent laughs and says what..it’s because of Shouta [himself/the problem is Shouta].


Then, Kent notices Ayane going out at the door. Pin had just opened the door so both are surprised. Looking at the notice on the blackboard about the Christmas party, Pin says that they are going karaoke for the party but sorry, he can’t sing. Ayane tells him that no one is inviting him to go. Pin starts shouting if she knows that day that is. Ayane says that it is Christmas. Pin shouts that he doesn’t have time to be with them brats, for he will go out with a beautiful nurse. Ayane is surprised when Pin asks her if she is going to the class party. To her irritation, Pin laughs when she said ah. Pin tells her that she must have felt lonely which she denies for she didn’t even say if she is going or not. To Ayane’s surprise, Pin suggests that she go with a person like Kent. Just when Ayane asks why, Kent tells Pin to let Ayane be because right now, he[Kent] is very serious. Putting his arm around Kent, Pin asks if they are currently at a ‘tie breaker’. Kent tells him to quit joking around. Ayane starts to shout that the two are a hindrance, get out of the way for she wants to go out the room. Then, Pin asks her why she is too hot-tempered. Ayane just shouts that they are awful and can just go to hell. Kent suddenly sits on the floor and laments about going to the same place as Pin..which is hell. Pin just giggle that he’ll view it as an honor. At the girls’ toilet, Ayane is putting on her lipstick and asks what Kent meant by ‘very serious’, serious about what, it must be idle talk. Then, she remembers what Kent said before that it isn’t like that about being a good guy. [/something like he isn’t doing this things for her because he is a good guy]
Just as Ayane came out of the toilet, Kent calls out to her and asks her what she plans for Christmas. Looking a bit uncomfortable, Ayane says that she doesn’t have any plans and she doesn’t have a boyfriend though she will go to the class party together with Sawako and Chizuru. She asks, “What about you?” Kent says, “Let’s spend Christmas together. The two of us. *blush a bit* ..With only the two of us?” Ayane looks at him in surprise. She somewhat backs away and becomes totally speechless. Then, Kent’s fangirls came and ask Kent about spending Christmas together at some other place, and Ayane can come with them for it will be truly fun. To Kent’s surprise, Ayane says that she won’t go, she’ll go with the class party. Before leaving, she tells Kent to have fun. While she walks away, Kent remembers crying Ayane [during the school trip]. He mutters that Ayane still doesn’t want to open up. Just when fangirls start to talk again what they will do on Christmas, Kent tells them that he won’t be going with them for this year, he is going to join his class’ party. The fangirls lament over this. Then, Chizuru and Sawako are startled when Ryu asks Chizuru if she is going to the Christmas party, for he is going. Chizuru exclaims that she is going, and it isn’t like she’ll skip it because of him. Then, Ryu covers his face in embarrassment[/laughing] as he says that he isn’t asking about that. This made Chizuru also blush. Ryu says okay, they will both go. After Ryu leaves, blushing Sawako looks at blushing Chizuru. Then, Chizuru starts freaking out over it. Sawako can only say that she likes other people’s love stories. Chizuru exclaims that this isn’t a love story, and compared to others, she should think first of herself. She mentions to Sawako that something is troubling Shouta. It is something like he doesn’t want her to say though there is really no rule about it. She points out to Sawako to look at Shouta there, who is spacing out, and snubbing hyper Soichi. Then, Sawako starts to realize that there is some truth to it for Shouta does seem to space out and would always look somewhere else while talking.
Soon, they go shopping for Christmas gifts. Ayane bought a small bag of rock salt to shock people. =P and Chizuru tells her to give that no enemies. [Note: Salt is usually thrown to drive away evil spirits in Japan] While holding some shower gel, Sawako calls herself stupid for those times when Shouta is doing that, it isn’t because they have a ‘falling out’. Ayane asks if Sawako is giving that for Shouta. Sawako says that she had already prepared something else. While Chizuru is sadly looking at some sock/wristband [probably for Ryu], Ayane tells Sawako that Shouta could be thinking about spending Christmas with only the two of them or with the class, just like Andou and Yui who would spend it together but will drop by the party. At home, Sawako had finished the gloves that she will give for Shouta. She wears it on and wonders if it is okay. She starts to wonder what is troubling Shouta and too bad Chizuru doesn’t know the concrete details. She starts to wonder if it okay for her to just ask him about it, and she wants to help him with it. The next day[?], after school dismissal, Sawako calls out to Shouta to follow her where there are few people around. Then, near the ‘no entry’ sign by the stairs, Sawako struggles to say something. Then, she blushes and looks up to him. Shouta suddenly looks away and looks a bit flustered. Facing down, Shouta sits down the stairs and asks what it is. He is surprised when she says that there is something that she wants to say. He looks up to her and sees her sitting near him. Looking straight at him, she touches his arm and asks him if there is something troubling him. Then, to her surprise, Shouta holds her hand and got them off him. With a kind sad smile, Shouta says that there is none. Then, Shouta turns to stand up. Embarrassed, Sawako says is that so. Then, she thinks that she is just thinking too much.

  2. ^^ ... by the way, i did have a question about something... isn't "going steady" the same as dating/ being boyfriend & girlfriend? Am I missing something here?

    1. In a way, yes, heyayanami. I chose 'going steady' because at times when people say dating, there is no 'exclusive commitment' and they are not really 'boyfriend and girlfriend'. It is more like dating to get to know each other which can be more than one date. Here, when they say 'going steady', it is 'exclusive' and they are already boyfriend and girlfriend.

      In short, that is the term I can think of which explains it without it being confusing or ambiguous. ^^
