- "Ever since getting back to Tokyo, I've realized that time has been passing. It seems like time only stood still for me."
- —Amei Hanawa
Chapter 88 (
After treating her coldly at first, Haruto Kaguragi agrees with Amei Hanawa to treat her as a childhood friend. The Correct 5 later hold a welcome back party for Amei. Oto Edogawa, meanwhile, continues feeling uneasy about Amei.
Haruto Kaguragi asks Amei Hanawa to stop talking about the past. She agrees, conceding "It's not fair to Oto." In the other boat, Airi Maya tells Oto Edogawa about Haruto and Amei being "sweethearts." Kaito Taira says she should not talk about that since "Haruto only has eyes for Oto now." He then tells her "Everyone has a first crush." Seeing a new side to Kaito, Oto asks if Airi is his first crush. He confirms it, before making a surprising and unique love confession to Airi.
Amei says "It seems like time only stood still for me." Haruto, however, asserts that "nothing's changed much" and that she has "always overthought things." Amei blushes and thanks him "for remembering [her]." She then asks him to treat her "the same as everyone else," instead of his recent cold behavior. Afterwards, Kaito receives a call from Issa Narumiya who has prepared a welcoming party for Amei. Oto decides not to go, wanting to go home before dark. Nonetheless, she feels like an "outsider" as she watches the four walk away together.
At Issa's house, Sugimaru Eibi is surprised by the changes in Amei who "used to be so sickly and weak." Issa asks her if she has a boyfriend. She answers no and then says "It had nothing to do with my illness." Realizing the suggestion, Amei quickly says it was because she wanted to return to Tokyo one day. Issa then presents her with a cake and she says a few words thanking everyone. Haruto slips away within a few minutes, which Amei notices. He calls Oto, telling her he is outside. Once she comes out, he holds her and asks her to come with him to his house.
