- "Quit it already, you guys! How could you?! Quit tracking mud all over my life! Who do you think is suffering the most? It's me!! Who cares if you like me, or don't like me? That's not what matters!"
- —Tsukushi snaps
Chapter 160 (
Kiyonaga admits that he was hired by Kaede Domyoji to seduce Tsukushi Makino. He has given up the ruse because he likes Tsukushi. Amidst the F4's bickering, Tsukushi eventually snaps. She then orders Kiyonaga to follow her.
Tsukushi Makino stares at the fake Kiyonaga, thinking "What in the world is this guy saying?" The F4 stare as the information that he was hired by Kaede Domyoji sinks in. Sojiro Nishikado is the first to talk, saying "So she's trying to make sure that Tsukushi and Tsukasa wouldn't get back together again." A shadow crosses Tsukasa Domyoji's face. He announces "I'm gonna kill that bitch." Sojiro and Akira Mimasaka try to hold him back. Kiyonaga slaps Tsukasa and tells him "Let's calm down and have a talk."
Ignoring the bickering, Tsukushi demands for Kiyonaga to "tell [them] everything." He explains that men came to him with a proposal to "trick" Tsukushi. He accepted since he was curious and needed money. Akira questions why he is revealing everything since he has not "completed his mission." Kiyonaga admits that he was not planning on exposing himself yet. Tsukasa cuts in to tell him to "get lost" then. Smiling, he responds "You're still a kid, aren't you?" He then admits that he is "sick of lying" since he likes Tsukushi.
Tsukushi reflects that she feels as if a "black shadow" is constantly following her no matter where she runs. Sojiro interrupts her thoughts. Snapping, Tsukushi yells at everyone to "shut up." Still shouting, she tells them "Quit tracking mud all over my life!" When she stops, she orders Kiyonaga to follow her. Tsukasa says to her "Don't tell me you won't have me, but you'll take that guy?!" She calls him an "idiot" and continues walking. Outside, Tsukushi punches Kiyonaga and demands to be taken to Kaede.
