Nina is having a good time with her friends, talking about their school`s team winning in the match. One girls yells that she will definitely go to chear the match if Kyo manages to get his team to Koshien. Other girl asks where is Koshien and if it is Hyougo prefecture is it far away. Then they ask Nina will she go together with school to cheer for them. She says she wonders if they really will be able to win, cause they have to win another two times before that. They aren`t giving that opinion a chance but change the topic asking her is she`s geting along with Miyake. She says they are, but they can`t see each other every day like they used to in middle school so she is lonelly sometimes, then she becomes embarrassed so they ask her what was she remembering when she blushed that hard and if she and Miyake finally did it, but she insists right away they didn`t, then she calms down and says that they are all right. All girls are amused by the story and one girl asks her why doesn`t she ask Miyake to come with her to Koshien cause that way there will be only them, dating each other and spending the night together. She screams that it won`t be happening and friend teases her that didn`t she just said she was lonelly.
As she left the „party“ she received a mail from Miyake saying he just finished with club so he will be waiting for her at school gate. She thinks to herself that everybody said such weird things she became so nervous even though it is only a date. She reached the gate and is waiting for him when the annoying girl comes greeting her as „Shun`s girlfriend“. She introduces herself as Nishikawa Kaori and says she is in the same basket ball club as Miyake. Then she comments how Shun is making her wait for him and asks if she should call for him. Nina says it`s fine, she can wait. Then she lifted her hand on purpose so Nina can see she has Miyake`s wrist band and says she tought Shun would fly here if he knows his girlfriend came. Nina is shocked by what she just saw and wonders if it is the same or the one she gave to Miyake. To make matter worse, Miyake comes calling her by name „ Kaori“ and asking if she has his wristband. She fakes good girl saying his girlfriend came. He greets Nina with Uemura, but she is still shocked wondering why does she have his band. Kaori waves them bye saying she`s in the way here. He apologizes to Nina for making her wait during this hot weather but she says she just came so she`s fine. She puts a fake smile and thinks how he didn`t even notice he`s back to Uemura with her. Miyake asks her what`s the matter but she is in her own world remembering her friend`s words to deepen their bond, and saying nothing bad can happen cause she already is feeling lonelly. He asks her to go eat something but she wants to try asking him after all what her friend told her. She asked him if by chance Kyo manages to go to Koshien will he come together with her and stay over night. She continues that since it is about Kyo, her father wouldn`t probably mind and wonders what is he thinking at same time cause his facial expression really changed. He shortly replies that he probably can`t cause he has clubs every day and turns around but when he looks back at her she is looking really sad saying that he`s right, cause he has club activities, but tears start to dropping down her face. Then she becomes angry saying he is really an idiot for giving the wrist band to that girl and calling her by name and runs away. Kaori appears asking if they had a fight and commenting how Nina is really short temperd but Miyake is now also mad asking her when did she take it and demanding to give him back the band. she says he doesn`t have to make such a scary face but he said not to do it again cause it is his precious thing.
Nina is upset reminiscing about their argue on the balcony when she hears Kyo came home. Kyo asks her what is she doing and she smiles congratulating him for achieving so much and says they need to win just 2 more to go to Koshien and she will come to cheeer. He of course figures out something`s wrong so he asks her if something happend and if they had a fight. She tells him it`s not a big deal, but she didn`t know it can be so frustrating not being able to see each other etc.. Then he asks her doesn`t she think it is same on the other side as well, and says that he thinks that for Miyake that feeling is nothing new to begin with, and he walks inside to room, leaving Nina surprised cause she probably figured out how she didn`t think about Miyake.
It`s the baseball game, Nina is watching but while others are nervous cause other team is catching up with score she remembers Kyo asking her doesn`t she think Miyake feels the same way. She wonders if Miyake also felt like this for a long time, as he was watching her all that time. She has an urge to see him and to apologize to him so she gets up and runs to find him, but bumps into 2 guys. When they notice she`s from Minami high they start to tease her that they should go together to watch and cheer for the team. She tells them she has to go somewhere, but they are not letting her go. Then Miyake comes to save the day, saying „ please don`t touch my girlfriend.“
Nina asks him how come he is here since he has club activity, but he answers he knew they are cheering for their team so he left early. Then looking at her he tells her to try to get a picture , and as he huggs her he continues that even though he told her they can talk about Kyo, he certainly isn`t happy to listen about some other guy. She nodds like she understands that, he continues that being touched by another man also makes him irritated. She nodds again. Finally, he says that he wants to make memmories of only two of them and not cheering for somebody. She nodds, crying in his arms. Meanwhile, Kyo was being a star of the game, and while they`re kissing he scored a point.
During the break everybody`s happy, and one guy tells Kyo that they are finally entering finals and it shouldn`t be hard to win if they play like they usually do. Kumegawa comes teasing them what`s with all that team spirit since they played so poor and not even close to how he almost on his own entered finals 3 years ago. Yuiko interrupts teasing Kumegawa that it must be vexing then for such a cool him not being able to play in Koshien. She continues that this year they will definitely go to Koshien and even she herself on the bench. While Kumegawa stares at her in shock, Kyo tells him that he will give his best, but Kumegawa turns frustrated and tells him he is really irritated by him, leaving Kyo surprised. Yuiko without looking at him calls out to Kyo telling him they should win no matter what.
Back to Nina and Miyake, he asks her if it is ok to sit there with him and not with her class, but she tells him that they can cheer from anywhere. She complains how he is calling her again by surname and he answers she is doing the same. she tells him that it`s awkward and he agrees.
The match continues from break and everybody`s cheering, well accept Kumegawa who is still mad, and Miyake tells her that next year `s summer he will call her by name without being embarrassed.
„Lot of things happend, and now, you are next to me.“
