Upon arriving at the station Yamato leaves Nagi in Mei's care and hurries to Megumi's apartment. There he meets Momo, Megumi's best friend. Megumi shut herself in her apartment because of the same reason that Mei and Nagi shunned making friends before, and won't come out even if it is Yamato knocking at her door. He and Momo says that her fears do not matter, for there are people that is behind her and are there for her. From the moment she opened the door for Momo and Yamato, she changed in a couple of days, into her true self, one who does not make shallow friendships, as that false facade actually hurts those around her. It was a challenge at first, but it took her only awhile to adjust. Kai smiles to himself upon seeing the new Megumi. Seasons pass by, and things become stable for everyone, especially Yamato and Mei. Mei has already gotten out with Yamato and her friends during the summer festival, but, on the insistence of her mother, she asks Yamato to watch the fireworks with her. Even if Mei arrives late and the fireworks over, it did not matter to Yamato, as he kissed her at the now-empty shrine.
