Just Give Up on Her
The class is finally starting to prepare for the school festival, and everyone is wondering where Sawako is, in which Chizuru and Ayane say that she had somewhere else to be. Ryu finds Kazehaya outside as soon as he is done with baseball practice, and asks Kazehaya how his confession went. Kazehaya tells Ryu he was rejected, and that the rejection hurt a lot more than he thought it would, though he is unaware that Kurumi overheard the conversation, and she runs off to find Sawako. After confronting Sawako, Kurumi snaps at Sawako and tells her that she is hurting Kazehaya, and that since Kurumi actually told Kazehaya how she felt for him, that they were not on the same level. That night, Kazehaya and Pin run into each other, and Pin starts yelling at Kazehaya for rejecting Sawako. Kazehaya explains that he was rejected, and Pin tells Kazehaya to just give up on Sawako, and walks off, leaving Kazehaya to think for himself. The next day people are talking about the "battlefield" between Kazehaya, Sawako, and Kento, and after Sawako hears people talking about it, she says it was all a misunderstanding and that the meaning of "like" is different, not realizing Kazehaya is standing right there. Ayane and Chizuru take Kento away, as he had said very loudly that Kazehaya liked Sawako in front of everyone. Ayane gets mad at Kento, and starts yelling at him, when Kurumi interrupts. Kento asks Kurumi what she did after she learned about what happened between Kazehaya and Sawako, and Ayane and Chizuru start questioning her. They find out that Kurumi stopped Sawako from giving Kazehaya the Valentine's Day Chocolate and told her off. Kento also finds out that Kurumi likes Kazehaya, and asks her if it would make it easier for her if he went out with Sawako. Kurumi slaps Kento across the face and tells him not to get ahead of himself. Kurumi also says that she didn't think she would lose to such a weak girl, and runs off. After Kento finally gets everything straight through his head, Ayane and Chizuru leave him. Sawako goes in the library, telling herself that she really didn't tell Kazehaya how she was feeling, or anything like that, and that she really wasn't doing anything up to this point.
