Recalling Keita not wanting her to go to Ryou, Himari thinks that lately, they haven’t been together like this, and right now, she wants to be like this for a while. They were startled when there is a ringing sound. It is both their cellphones. They read their respective cellphones. It is a message from their mother that they have just arrived in school and wanted to walk around with them but both of them aren’t in the classroom. Himari thinks that her mother came at this time and could this be so-called ‘fate’. Could it be that it is telling [them] that their relationship is not allowed. Soon, at the hallway, Keita meets up with their parents. Keiko apologizes for suddenly sending a text. Keiko happily asks if he knew that Himari joined the lovers’ competition. She is quite startled for that Himari who isn’t good with guy would unexpectedly join such a public activity. She laughs that Shigeru wants everyone to watch it together. Keita tries to excuse himself but Keiko asks him to accompany them since there are too many people and they’ll get lost. Then, she asks where the gym is. Keita can only look flustered over this. At the gym, a girl apologizes for making Ryou and Himari join the competition because their relationship is quite good so she thought that they are definitely going steady. Each class should have a pair joining so they, who are also committee members, would definitely agree. Ryou and Himari look at each other. Himari says that they are really not going steady so this competition. Ryou just agrees to it – joining for everyone. Himari goes along with that and wonders if it is really okay when he just confessed not long ago and she rejected him. While the host is talking, Ryou asks her if just now, she was staying at the clinic. Himari is surprised. The host tells the couples to come on stage. Ryou grabs Himari’s hand and says, ‘let’s go.’ They head out and well, Keita is scowling as he watches with the audience.
Comment: Hm..from how things look, everyone including their parents would think that those two are going steady. So, aside from it being hard to tell others about her and Keita’s relationship, they would have to deal with a possible misunderstanding of others regarding her and Ryou. Of course, there is a possibility of someone confessing the truth during the competition and this ‘secret’ won’t be dragged out anymore. It makes me wonder what Ryou’s intention is —help Himari by forcing Keita to act now, or it is for his selfish reason, or both- ..well, that is depending on what would happen next.
