Chapter 121 (
Tsukasa Domyoji comes to Tsukushi Makino's room to show her Saturn through a telescope. He then gives her a necklace, before kissing her. Meanwhile, Akira Mimasaka and Sojiro Nishikado decide to head to Tsukasa's house.
Sojiro Nishikado and Akira Mimasaka role-play a dialogue they imagine Tsukushi Makino and Tsukasa Domyoji are having at the moment. Rui Hanazawa is obviously uncomfortable, asking the guys "Doesn't it embarrass you to talk like that?" Akira voices his hopes that Tsukasa will have the "brains and the words to do this." Finding his adamance odd, Sojiro asks Akira if has broken up with his girlfriend, which he sadly confirms. Then Akira decides that they should go over to Tsukasa's house to "egg them on."
Tsukushi starts panicking and decides to run. She gets dressed and opens her bedroom door to find Tsukasa saying "You're late." Tsukushi points out the late hour, to which he responds "We can't do it unless it's late." He then walks pass her and sets up a telescope on the balcony. Realizing he only wanted to look at the stars, Tsukushi feels like a "fool." It takes Tsukasa an hour to find the object that he wants to show Tsukushi. Finally, he calls over Tsukushi and she is amazed to see the planet, Saturn.
Back inside, Tsukasa gives her a necklace shaped like Saturn. Tsukasa informs her that he had it "special-ordered" for her, though Tsukushi feels that it is "too expensive." He places it around her neck as she says "I'm happy, but there's no reason for me to accept it." Tsukasa then hugs her from behind, saying "What's wrong with my giving the girl I love a present?" Her heart beating fast, Tsukushi asks him to let her go. Tsukasa instead turns her around and kisses her. Tsukushi finds herself unable to move.
