A few days after their trip to Canada, Tsukushi Makino and Yuki Matsuoka visit the shrine together. Tsukushi is talking about the night of the blizzard, vowing to forget it. Yuki reminds her that Tsukasa Domyoji saved her life. Tsukushi concedes this point, but is still embarrassed about having to take off her sweater. Yuki quickly covers Tsukushi's mouth as two of her friends walk up. After seeing how nice Yuki's friends were, Tsukushi decides to pray to make friends at Eitoku Academy.
An old woman approaches Tsukushi, saying "Allow me to read your fortune for the year." she tries to refuse, but the woman starts talking. She claims "That boy so close to you, stay with him and you'll meet catastrophe!" Tsukushi thinks of Tsukasa. Yuki calls the woman a "fake," but Tsukushi says "It's not like there's no truth to it." Later, Yuki mentions that their middle school classmates are having a get-together. She brings up Shingo Oribe, leading Tsukushi to remember when he confessed his feelings to her.
The next day, Tsukushi's mother reminds her not to "get bitten by any bad bugs." At the reunion, she is greeted warmly by her old friends. She sits next to Shingo who smiles shyly. Coincidentally, Tsukasa, Akira Mimasaka, and Sojiro Nishikado are at a nearby table. A classmate mentions Shingo's crush on Tsukushi, who then feels someone staring at her. Tsukasa knocks out Shingo by dislocating his neck. He kicks the table, sending everyone fleeing. Tsukushi slaps Tsukasa, remembering the woman's words.
The chapter was originally published in Margaret with a two-page color illustration. It features Tsukushi holding up a poster of Tsukasa with posters of the other F4 guys in the background. The image was included in the complete edition's volume seven.
