- "I recently celebrated my 100th installment. Whew! 100! I've been at this for 4-1/2 years, so I guess it's to be expected... but when you see the number written, it's kind of amazing! I've been able to continue so long because of all your support. It's not likely I'll reach 200 installments... but I'll keep drawing as long as I can!"

Junpei Oribe protects an unconscious Tsukushi Makino from some bullies. Once she wakes up, he lies and tells her that he ran away instead of fighting. He leaves briefly and finds Tsukushi missing when he returns. Meanwhile, Sojiro Nishikado, Akira Mimasaka, and Rui Hanazawa search for Tsukasa Domyoji at his house. They finally find Tsukasa, who has no idea about Tsukushi receiving a red card. A messenger comes to the house with a lock of hair and an order for Tsukasa to go alone to the old gym behind the school. There Tsukushi is tied up. Junpei reveals himself to be the ringleader of the kidnappers. He tells her that he wants revenge on Tsukasa for hurting his friend.
Tsukasa comes to save Tsukushi, despite her being so sure that he would not. He tells her to look away, before the guys start beating him up. Junpei asks him "You want to hit back?" Tsukasa makes a fist, but stops himself. Junpei goes to hit him with a chair. Tsukushi throws herself in front of Tsukasa, leading Junpei to leave with his accomplices. Tsukasa passes out after telling Tsukushi "This was the only way to protect you." Later, Tsukushi wakes up in the hospital from a nightmare of Tsukasa dying. When she goes to his room, the F4 play a trick on her by pretending Tsukasa is actually dead. After the other guys leave, Tsukushi cries and confesses to Tsukasa about how scared she was of him dying.
Junpei enters Tsukasa's hospital room. Tsukushi is scared that he has come to "finish him off," but he actually wants to apologize. She informs him that it is "too late," though she thinks to herself that she may forgive him someday. Sometime later, Akira and Sojiro put pressure on Tsukushi regarding Tsukasa's feelings for her. In order to get away, she tells them "Tsukasa's sort of like a dog." After getting released from the hospital, Tsukushi tells herself "Maybe I can't run away from [Tsukasa] anymore." She returns to school in the morning. There Tsukasa invites her to his birthday party. Tsukushi worries about what present to give him. Yuki Matsuoka suggests something homemade, leading Tsukushi to bake cookies.
Sojiro, Akira, and Rui greet Tsukushi when arrives at the party. They immediately take her to Tsubaki Domyoji to get a new dress. Tsukushi asks them "Is there something I should know about this party?" The F4 say "Tsukasa's mother is really scary." Tsubaki then tells her "If she finds out that Tsukasa has invited a girl..." and Akira interjects "She'll look at you as his fiancée." Tsukushi tries to leave after hearing this. Sojiro eventually convinces her to stay for Tsukasa's sake. She walks up to Tsukasa and wishes him a happy birthday. He tries to take her to meet his mother. Tsukushi resists which ends in her falling onto the buffet. His mother notices and orders her to leave, but Tsukasa tells her "This girl is precious to me."
