#4 - Misunderstood
Feb 2, 2011(JST)
Sawako is still troubled by what Kazehaya told her in the previous episode, to just "forget" about what he had told her earlier. Sawako wonders what Kazehaya meant by that as she walks home. Meanwhile, Kento pulled Kazehaya outside to talk with him about Sawako, and how much of an outcast she was until Kazehaya started talking to her, and also tells Kazehaya that he shouldn't get to close to Sawako anymore or the other girls will get mad and Sawako will become an outcast again. Kazehaya gets mad and tells Kento that he does the things he does for a reason. Kento stands up and tells Kazehaya that Sawako would be hurt by it. As Kazehaya walks away, Kento shouts to him, asking if Kazehaya has a person he likes. When Kazehaya responds "I do!", Kento asks if he could help Kazehaya, and Kazehaya rejects the idea. Chizuru and Kazehaya meet up on the way home, and Kazehaya asks if he is really that different from Sawako, as he thought he was the closest to her. Chizuru takes what he said the wrong way and tells him that he doesn't understand her, thinking "he doesn't even know that Sawako likes him!". Chizuru also says that Kazehaya is the most different from Sawako, because of the experiences with rumors that she went through. They part ways, Chizuru wondering what is up with Kazehaya all of a sudden. The next day, Sawako tries to greet Kazehaya, but stutters, and Kazehaya almost ignores her, briefly whispering "good morning", and then runs to catch up with his friends. Ayane and Chizuru see this and pull Sawako aside to find out what happened. After Sawako explains to Ayane and Chizuru about what Kazehaya said the two days, Ayane looks upon the situation and tries to explain things to Sawako. After Sawako leaves for classroom duty, Ayane and Chiruzu find Kazehaya and Ryu in the hallway, and Ayane kicks Kazehyaya and tells him to stop avoiding Sawako. Chizuru asks Ayane what that was all about, and Ayane says "well, the girl Kazehaya likes acts like she's terrified of him.", and Chizuru goes crazy, feeling sorry for Sawako that Kazehaya likes someone. Chizuru finally realizes that the girl Kazehaya likes is Sawako, and Ayane and Chizuru argue on why it's such a problem. Chiruzu thinks back at what she said to Kazehaya the previous day and realizes that she screwed up and if she doesn't do something soon things are going to go badly. Sawako enters the classroom, and everyone starts praising her on how amazing her study sessions are. Inside, Kazehaya watches Sawako from the back of the classroom, with a dejected look on his face.
