- "True, when I saw him kiss Shigeru, and when I saw them together at the villa, it was a shock. I think I was jealous. But when he looks at me with those clear eyes... I don't know what to do. I just down't know. I'm scared. When he comes for me, I want to want to run."

Chapter 119 (
Tsukushi Makino begins working at Tsukasa Domyoji's house as a maid. Still unsure of her feelings, Tsukushi worries about Tsukasa's expectations. For instance, he asks her to come to his room at midnight.
Tama escorts Tsukushi Makino her to her bedroom, where she notices a phone and call button. Tama tells her that she will have to "rush" to Tsukasa Domyoji whenever her calls. Tsukushi requests to not be his "personal maid" but Tama refuses her, saying "I am the law here." Now by herself, Tsukushi becomes worried about what Tsukasa may try in the future. She then attempts to go asleep though to no avail. Tsukushi instead thinks of Tsukasa, saying "When he comes for me, I want to run."
The following morning, Tsukushi joins the other maids in cleaning the entryway. Tama dismisses Tsukasa's usual wake-up call and forces Tsukushi to go wake him up. She nervously enters the room and approaches Tsukasa. Tsukushi is wondering if she was feeling "too self-conscious" when he suddenly hugs her. She breaks free of his hold and jumps up and down on him. Later, as they are heading out the front door, Tsukasa informs her that it was an accident though she remains annoyed.
On her way to school, Tsukushi runs into Sojiro Nishikado and Rui Hanazawa. They realize she was coming from Tsukasa's house, forcing her to admit everything. Sojiro promises not to tell anyone, though the whole school quickly learns the news. At the end of the day, Tsukasa picks up Tsukushi from her classroom. Sojiro and Akira Mimasaka on the way, who bet on whether Tsukasa and Tsukushi "do it tonight." In the car, Tsukasa tells her "I'm going to press the call button at midnight, so come to my room."
