Yamato catches a fever and skips school. Seeing that she's bashful again, Mei's friends urge her to go and see him. However, on the way to Yamato's house the next day, Mei calls Yamato only to hear Nagi's voice, telling her that he does not want to see her today. In reality Nagi wants to pamper Yamato and have him all to herself. Mei's insecurity kicks in as a result. Later, as Yamato worries about the consequences of Nagi's acts, Kakeru calls him, telling him that he has a girlfriend who works at the place where Mei works part time. Thinking that the girl is Mei because he is unaware that the bakery has now two part-time assistants, he panicked and rushed out of his bed to go and see for himself, escaping Nagi, distracted by a boy classmate of hers who came to visit, in the process. He unknowingly passes by Mei, who is hiding behind a telephone pole just outside his house. Yamato's fears are allayed upon seeing that it is not Mei who's going out with Kakeru. After seeing Kai at the bakery, he and Mei later cross paths at their usual meeting spot, as they apologize to each other and spend the rest of the day together afterwards. At the end of the closing credits, Mei is heard saying "I love you", conveniently ending the series by fulfilling the title.
