After being caught in a snowstorm, Tsukasa Domyoji tells Tsukushi Makino to take off her clothes off in order to warm up. She hesitates at first but eventually listens to him. In the morning, they are able to return to his family's mansion.
Tsukushi Makino reluctantly takes off her shirt and asks Tsukasa Domyoji to look away. He tells her to take off her pants as well. She outright refuses to do so, to which Tsukasa responds "You're the one who's gonna freeze." Tsukushi then says "You're not planning to do anything, are you?" Tsukasa suddenly stands up and tosses her sweater aside, before saying "Is this any time to think about that?!" He tells her that she needs to be thinking about survival instead. Tsukushi realizes she is being "stupid" and apologizes.
Tsukasa and Tsukushi lay together underneath a thin blanket near the fire. She tells him "I never knew a person's body heat could feel so good" and calls him a "good guy." He then says he would rather be called "cool." She replies "You're not, but you are a good person" before falling asleep. Meanwhile, Sojiro Nishikado yells at Yuriko Asai and her friends to stop crying. Rui calls them "murderers." Even Sakurako Sanjo yells at them, which Akira Mimasaka finds ironic. The three guys then comfort Yuki Matsuoka.
In the morning, two Canadians walk into the cabin. Tsukushi wakes up Tsukasa before realizing her bra is showing. They get dressed and Tsukasa begins carrying her back to the house. He mentions that she has yet to thank him and admits "Truth is I thought my heart was about to stop." They arrive back at the house, much to everyone's relief. Tsukasa yells at Yuriko and her friends to return to Japan. Sojiro then wonders aloud where the two spent the night and happens to guess right, causing them to blush deeply.
A one-page color illustration accompanied the chapter when it was published in Margaret. It was later republished in volume seven of the complete edition. The picture is of Tsukushi wearing a crop top with Tsukasa and Rui, who have their backs turned away from her.
