Summary

Tsukasa Domyoji finds Tsukushi Makino with Amon Kunisawa at a bus stop. He asks her not to go with Amon and confesses "I don't want anyone but you." Tsukushi is struck speechless. Amon criticizes him for not thinking of her happiness. In response, he yells at Tsukushi "I will make you happy." The bus arrives and Amon gently coaxes her onto it. Tsukasa runs after it while shouting her name. He eventually gives up and sits in the middle of the street. Tsukushi comes back for him. As they are about to grasp hands, a police officer seizes Tsukushi. An irate Tsukasa has to be held back by some other officers. Tsukushi tells Tsukasa to "come and get [her]" and smiles as she says "I've made up my mind."[3]

Tsukushi is quickly let out of jail and becomes annoyed when she learns that Tsukasa caused her arrest. She softens once he sheepishly admits "I couldn't find you anywhere." Next, she visits Amon who is a little harsh at first. He surprisingly calls Kaede Domyoji's secretary and informs him that he and Tsukushi are dating, which will buy her and Tsukasa some time.[4] Returning to Tsukasa, he holds her tight and leans in to kiss her. Their growling stomachs interrupt. After eating dinner, he proposes that they go to New York which she is firmly against. He questions if he got the "wrong idea again." Tsukushi realizes that Tsukasa needs her to clearly state her feelings. She is unable to and the night ends on an awkward note.[5]

The next day at school, Tsukushi brings Tsukasa to roof. She builds her courage as they are eating lunch to ask "Will you go out with me?" Tsukushi then tells Tsukasa that she wants to keep their relationship a secret from everyone, including their friends. He is completely against it, though agrees when Tsukushi explains that she is scared of being parted from him again.[6] The following day, Tsukushi meets with Amon. He reveals that they are under close watch by the Domyojis' secret police. She later goes to school and runs into Rui Hanazawa, who invites her to Akira Mimasaka's house. There Akira and Sojiro Nishikado trap her in the summer house. She finds herself alone with a tied up Tsukasa.[7]

Sojiro meets with Yuki Matsuoka to inform her about trapping Tsukushi and Tsukasa together. She tells him that she wants Tsukushi to be happy and her family will "band together" if need be. She then says that Sojiro made her stronger. He smoothly replies, before leaving with his date. Meanwhile, Tsukushi gradually becomes comfortable being alone with Tsukasa.[8] She attempts to bring up her conversation with Amon, but ends up asking Tsukasa how he became "good at kissing." He reveals his brief past with girls, making Tsukushi jealous. Now annoyed, she brings up Amon. Tsukasa becomes angry, feeling that she is not relying on him. Moments later, members of the secret police come looking for Tsukasa.[9]
