The chapter begins with Kyo looking at Yuiko with a painful expression while murmuring her name. Meanwhile, Miyake and Nina are walking, commenting on how today second semester has finally finished, and that after the new year they will be taking the exams right away. Miyake then comments on how the weather is getting cooler. Nina agrees saying her hands are freezing. Miyake takes her hand in his, to warm her up, and tells her that he can't wait for December 24th. Nina nods.
At home, Nina's dad happily remarks that tomorrow they can all be together at home for Christmas, making her nervous. Her mom interferes saying that Nina already has other plans which shocks her dad. He asks her who's she going with, and Nina replies that it's with Nochan and the guys. Dad is thinking who Nochan is and when her mom tells him it is her lady friend from school he just wishes them a nice time. Kyo's mom says that only they (parents) will attend the Christmas party tomorrow because Keisuke is going with Mayu to a party and Kyo has club activities in the morning and is then going with Yuiko somewhere. In the meantime, Nina thinking about Miyake’s words “I can’t wait.”
She’s thinking in her room- “Finally, tomorrow…“ and the scene changes to Miyake’s. While his family is packing, they ask him if he’s sure he doesn’t want to tag along. He says he decided to stay home and study (he he)and his sister teases him because she knows he’s planning to invite a girl to his house. He blushes.
Now at the baseball club, a guy comments on how there is no Yuiko today. He asks Kyo if he knows about her whereabouts to which Kyou replies, “ I don’t know.” The other guys tease him to let it slide today, because it is a special day. But he’s worried about Kyou since he seems a little odd. He then notices that Kyou is running a fever. He yells for the manager to tell the coach that Kyo has to go home.
At home, Nina is preparing dinner, just as her parents are leaving. She remembers their (Miyake’s and hers) agreement at 6 pm, Miyake said they’ll take pizza and she said she’ll make a side dish for it. At Miyake’s, he’s cleaning while nervously watching the time. Then he asks his mom if they’re leaving yet, to which his sister replies that they’re still packing. His mom notices how it’s rare for him to be cleaning, and his sister starts teasing him again that it must be a girl coming. Apparently, he phones Nina asking if it is ok to come little later, she agrees and tells him that she will come at 7pm. Meanwhile, Kyou has just arrived home, and is trying to find a medical thermometer to measure his temperature. He remembers about the mornings conversation: When one of his friends tell him to let it slide because it’s special day, then Yuiko’s words that Nina is spending Christmas at her boyfriend’s house, lastly he recalls the hug Yuiko gives him from behind and all of the times they’ve spent together. Just then, the thermometer beeps, and it turns out he has a fever of 39.7 degrees. He is shocked and begins looking for medicine. Nina suddenly hears something but doesn`t notice it’s Kyo, and looks at herself at the mirror. She then decides to head off to Miyake’s place. However, just as she’s leaving she hears a sound and goes to the balcony yelling for Keisuke. Since there is no answer, she goes across the balcony and sees Kyo lying on the floor. She yells his name, trying to ask him what happend when she notices his fever. She decides to call his mom and tries to find the phone when suddenly Kyo says, “Don’t go..” and Nina replies he got it wrong (asuming he thinks she is Yuiko). She borrows his cell phone and calls Yuiko asking her to come because he’s sick. Yuiko is first surprised by the call her and replies , “Why should I go?” Nina is surprised and tells her that Kyo is calling for her. Yuiko replies that it’s a lie because he dupmed her so there is no way he would call her now. She continues telling Nina if she’s interest in that conversation she overheard him and Yuiko the other day (when he says he was the one considering them siblings). The chapter ends with Nina being completely stunned by the situation, as Kyo calls out to Nina not to go.
