Tsukasa Domyoji glares at Junpei Oribe, who has just entered the room. Tsukushi Makino stands protectively in front of Tsukasa. Junpei assures them "I'm not here to do anything," but laughs when they suggest if he came to apologize. He launches into a story about his friend whom Tsukasa beat in middle school. Tsukasa asks "How's he doing now?" Junpei confirms he survived, leading Tsukasa to "Are you satisfied now?" He responds "I felt better after seeing you get beat up like that."
Tsukushi tells Junpei to leave, saying "Don't you ever do this again!" He apologizes to her, bowing to show his sincerity. Tsukushi, however, says "It's too late to be sorry." After Junpei leaves, she thinks to herself "I won't forgive you yet" but believes that she will be able to laugh with him again someday. Sakurako Sanjo and Kazuya Aoike enter the hospital. As the two are fighting, Junpei passes by and says hello. Though Kazuya calls him a "snake in the grass," Sakurako comments on how handsome he is.
Later, the F3 visit Tsukasa and Tsukushi at the hospital. They show her a photo of her attackers, whom have been shaven and beaten up. Sojiro Nishikado and Akira Mimasaka comment about Tsukasa letting himself get beat up, attributing it to love. Tsukushi avoids the subject, but Sojiro, Akira, and even Rui Hanazawa begin listing Tsukasa's good qualities. She starts to feel cornered and says "Tsukasa's sort of like a dog," allowing her to run away. The guys burst into laughter, except Tsukasa who collapses in shock.
