Keisuke watches the snowy scenery amazed and yells for Kyou to come. He tells him that since his head still hurts he should be quiet. Keisuke asks him if he can still go to the park since Kyou is not. Kyou says he can and Keisuke runs off, leaving Kyou looking for the blackboard. He then wonders if Nina has seen it yet. Meanwhile, Nina is trying to call Miyake but she keeps being sent to his voicemail so she begins to dress quickly as she wants to apologize to him. She rushes to Miyake when she suddenly bumps into him on the stairs. Miyake is surprised to see her there, but Nina immediately starts apologizing for yesterday, and Miyake interrupts her by saying “Good morning“ with a big smile.
She continues saying she was planning to go to his house right now and she called his cell phone but he didn’t answer. He says he forgot it at home and Nina looks relieved. He then says that he came to speak to her in person and she looks nervous, asking him what about. He changes the subject saying “Let`s redo Christmas!” He says there wasn’t that feeling yesterday so if it is convenient for Nina to redo it. Nina agrees and says she has to dress more properly, but Miyake stops her saying that the way she looks now is fine because it’s better to have clothes that she can easily move in.
At the club, the members are asking Yuiko if Kyou's fever has gotten better. They begin to tease her asking if she went home with him. She's stunned by all the teasing and quietly says that she’s sick of those things and it would have been better if she ditched today as well. Then she tells them to go practice, when her ex suddenly shows up behind her saying, “If you were lonely last night you should have called me.” The baseball club members were surprised to see Kumegawa. Yuiko irritatingly asks him what he came for. He says he was around the neighborhood so he decided to come visit them. Then as she tries to chase him off, he tells her that since she’s sullen nothing has changed. Yuiko is confused at first, however, he clears it up by saying that it seems she’s still the number two (to Kyou, meaning he considers Nina his number one). She raises her arm to slap him but he manages to stop her. He then asks her, “If I become serious, will you take me back?” She is left shocked whereas Kumegawa takes off. Behind her, the members are talking about him (Kumegawa). They’re surprised he still doesn't play ball since he’s already a university student and wonder if something is wrong with him.
The scene changes to the playground where Nina is praising Miyake’s strike, but he says it’s still nothing like Chris’s. She asks him if he’ll play in the tournament but he declines with a laugh. Then he silently says that he practiced after she came (last night) and when she asks him what he just said he replies with a forced smile, “I didn’t say anything.” They both continue to play all sorts of games. They end with basketball where Miyake shows some good moves and Nina comments on how good at basketball he is after all. She then challenges him and claims that she`ll take the ball from him and he asks her if she’s really capable of that.
She tries hard but finally drops on the floor saying she thought he’d go a bit easier on her. Miyake asks if they should call it a day and she yells for him to wait a little because she’s all dried up. Miyake suddenly exclaims like he forgot something and pulls out a gift. He places a hair pin on her hair and she happily asks him what is it (since she didn't see it) and he tells her it’s a Christmas present. She says she wants to see it so they should go to someplace with mirrors next and he, looking at her smiling, says yes, although somehow looking like he’ll cry. She then notices a chance, grabs the ball and scores and happily jumps asking if he saw that. She then asks him if he can come to her place because she also has a present for him. Out of the nowhere, Miyake hugs her and says, “Uehara, let’s break up.” Nina is taken aback. He continues saying that he’s fine as long as she is laughing, therefore she should go to the person that makes her laugh, implying Kyou. She’s confused and tries to explain about Kyou, but he interrupts her saying that even though he was with her, no matter how much fun they had, and even though he was said it was fine, it took her just a second to go to his (Kyo) side, and that just broke his heart. (And mine). The chapter ends with Miyake parting while leaving Nina alone on the playground.
Translator’s Comment: WOW!! What to say...very touching. Actually, I like how it turned out… Now, maybe Nina will decide to win Miyake over. Or maybe she’ll go to Kyo which would be boring. Well, at least it's exciting to wait for next chapter because it already became pretty boring.
Minchi's notes: NOOOOOOOOOOOO MIYAKEEEEEE *tears and more tears*
