- —Viz description
Haruto Kaguragi runs from the resort's bath after accidentally seeing a naked girl there. In the lobby, Airi Maya forces him to escort Oto Edogawa home. He is obviously nervous but evades her questions, deciding to keep what happened a secret from Oto. The next day, the girl, a popular model named Megumi Nishidome, visits Eitoku Academy to return Haruto's wallet. Haruto is not happy to see her again and tries to get her to leave. Oto sees the two of them talking. Haruto attempts to explain the situation, but she tells him that "it has nothing to do with [her]." Haruto is devastated. Oto then runs into Airi and tells her that she was "mistaken" about Haruto being in love with her.
After Oto's comment, Haruto wanders around dejectedly as Megumi follows him. She encourages him to clear the air with Oto. However, Haruto does not have the strength right now to face her. Megumi offers to help him practice speaking his feelings. He reluctantly says "I like you" and then promptly leaves. Megumi blushes, developing a crush on him. After an argument with her mother, Oto coincidentally meets Tenma Hase who cheers her up. Later, for their monthly meeting, they decide on a more casual date to an aquarium. There they run into Megumi, who asks if she can keep thinking about Haruto. Oto tells her to "do whatever [she] wants." Afterwards, she asks Tenma to go out with for real.
Megumi visits Haruto at his house later that night. She attempts to cheer him up by cooking him a meal. However, her cooking is horrible and makes Haruto gag, though it does help him come a realization. He decides to confess his feelings to Oto and rushes to her work as Megumi follows. When he gets to there, he overhears Oto talking with Tenma about dating for real. In shock, he runs home and throws away everything in his treasure vault. A few days later, Megumi transfers to Eitoku to pursue Haruto who does not appear to care. Haruto leaves school early. He ends up picking a fight with three thugs who beat him up in an alley. Megumi finds him and pleads with him to "stop hurting [him]self."
Airi later informs Oto that it is "just a matter of time" before Haruto and Megumi start dating. She is upset that Oto is dating Tenma instead of Haruto, though she takes the news relatively well. That night, Tenma invites Oto on a date to an amusement park. It will be their first date outside of their usual monthly meetings. At school, Megumi approaches Oto to ask again if it is okay for her to pursue Haruto. Oto tells her that she has "nothing to with him." Megumi then resolves to ask Haruto out on a date. That weekend, Oto and Tenma ride a roller-coaster at the amusement park. She feels sick afterwards and lies down on a bench. Oto looks over and sees Haruto on the bench directly across from her.
