"Why do I feel so bad? I know I should have expected something like this after what she said. Besides, I was on my way home from a date with Rui. Just because Tsukasa was with Sakurako, I've got no right to feel like this. But... Sakurako looked so smug!"
Tsukushi Makino stands in a daze after watching Tsukasa Domyoji and Sakurako Sanjo walk off. She realizes "I've got no right to feel like this," but cannot help being irritated by Sakurako's "smug" look. Tsukushi then yells at a guy, whom has been trying to pick her up all the while. Another woman shows up and scratches the guy's car with her heel, saying "Can't you take a hint?!" He then hurriedly drives off as the woman flips him off and yells "Get lost!" Tsukushi is stunned speechless.
Noticing Tsukushi's pallor, the woman invites her to her home which is nearby. She reminds Tsukushi of Shizuka Todo, though she also feels she has "seen her someplace before." They arrive at her home which Tsukushi instantly recognizes. She then realizes that the woman is Tsukasa's older sister, Tsubaki Domyoji. Tsubaki drags Tsukushi inside, despite her protests. She manages to hide, before Tsukasa and Sakurako walk in. When Tsubaki notices her missing, she assumes that Tsukushi has gone home.
Hiding behind a pot, Tsukushi thinks "I've got to get out of here fast!" However, she cannot find the way out and only gets lost in the maze-like house. After Sakurako leaves, Tsubaki comments on her being his girlfriend. He denies this and she says "How disappointing I was just thinking that you've actually made some progress." Tsukasa walks off and enters the room Tsukushi is in. She tries to explain herself, but makes a mistake when she mentions that she just left Rui Hanazawa'shouse.
The chapter was accompanied by a color illustration of Tsukushi in its original release. She is shown wearing a green dress and holding a thin veil. The image was not republished again until the complete edition was released in 2005.
The Rainbow Bridge mentioned in this chapter had just been completed earlier in 1993.
