Sawako tries to clear the rumors about Yano and Yoshida. In the meantime, the school gathers to watch a 'fight' in the girl's bathroom. Sawako is knocked down when she defends Yoshida and Yano. In the meantime, the two girls push their way through the crowd into the bathroom. They both defend Sawako, telling the girls that Sawako would never be the one who started the rumors. Kazehaya makes a public statement on how he hates ridiculous rumors, which affects particularly the girls who were bullying Sawako. With this, every one begins to talk about Sawako in a more positive way. Sawako, Yano and Yoshida are now even closer than they were before, although Kazehaya realizes that now it will be even tougher for him to be alone with Sawako.
