Back at school, Takao walks into his classroom to find everyone staring at him. For a moment, he thinks it is because Saeki may have seen her gym shirt on him when his shirt was wet. But everyone is really staring at him because he went out with Saeki! The boy gang up on him and Saeki asks if it’s alright to tell everyone. Blushing, Saeki makes the announcement that they are dating. Well, that causes a real commotion! Once again, the boys gang up on Takao and Saeki ends up defending him to her girlfriends. And Nakamura is sitting alone in the corner, watching.
Takao is feeling happy and relaxed for the first time in a long time, but I’m sure that isn’t going to last. Sure enough, he sees Nakamura talking to Saeki and all his fears come flooding back. For the rest of the day, whatever they may have been talking about is driving him crazy. Saeki and Takao walk home together and Saeki asks him if he caught a cold from getting wet. He says he’s fine and Saeki says how shocked she was by the incident. Apparently, Saeki didn’t see that it was Nakamura and Takao just goes along with that.
Saeki asks if he and Nakamura are friends and panic begins to set in again as he isn’t sure how to answer. Takao asks why and Saeki tells him that Nakamura told her so. Saeki says that she’s always been a little worried about the lone Nakamura and if she’s all right. Now smiling, Saeki drops the bomb that she made friends with Nakamura that very day! She said that Nakamura is cheering their relationship on and that she is happy for them. Takao is sure if he should feel relieved or not. Saeki goes on to say that she wants to know more about him and that they should treasure their relationship. Takao smiles at her and agrees.
That night, in his room, he hugs his pillow to himself and is very happy, but he can’t stop worrying about Nakamura. He wonders if she’s really giving them her blessing and decides that she’s pretty nice after all. Is he nuts? He’d like to savor his happiness, but remembers his theft of Saeki’s uniform and wonders if he really has a right to be her boyfriend. He dispels his fears and promises to change himself into a person worthy of Saeki, calling her his angel.
The next day, the kids put their desks together for lunch and Saeki asks Takao if they can eat together. But she also invites Nakamura and this gets the class talking again. It turns into an awkward situation and Nakamura asks Takao if he’s happy with Saeki. He says he is and then Nakamura asks Saeki if she really likes Takao and she says she does. Then she asks Saeki if she’d still like Takao if he turned out to be a pervert. Saeki doesn’t understand and says that Takao isn’t like that so Nakamura says that she is just kidding, but she passes Takao a note, telling him to go to the library after school.
Takao does meet Nakamura in the library and she tells him that she made friends with Saeki just for him and will tell him what Saeki really thinks of him as well as all her “juicy little secrets”. But Takao doesn’t want this and just wants Nakamura to leave them alone. Nakamura refuses and tells him that Saeki wants to have sex with him. And of course Saeki just happens to see them through the window. The next day, Takao can’t stop thinking about what Nakamura said. And Saeki is out sick.
Takao comes to the conclusion that his angel would never say such a thing and that Nakamura must be lying in order to trick him. After school, he is confronted by Saeki’s friend, Kinoshita and she demands to know what he did to Saeki. Saeki had called her the night before in tears, but wouldn’t tell her why she was crying. Kinoshita gives Takao the handout from class and tells him to take it to Saeki. Once again, Nakamura is a witness.
Takao goes to Saeki’s house and it takes him a while to get up enough courage to finally ring the doorbell. But before he can, Nakamura shows up behind him. That scares him enough to fall down! She asks him if he came to have sex with Saeki and calls him scum. Takao tells her to stop and that he won’t allow her to insult Saeki anymore. He says that he knows she is lying about Saeki wanting sex and tells Nakamura that she’s destroying Saeki’s innocent image. Nakamura says that she isn’t lying about Saeki and also insists that in saying that she’s insulting Saeki must mean that Takao isn’t interested in “normal” sex. She calls him the “king of sickos” and tells him to take a good look at himself in the mirror and he will see “all the nasty stuff under that mask of his”.
Nakamura whispers “good luck” in his ear and ringing Saeki’s doorbell, she runs away leaving an emotionally distraught Takao behind. He haltingly explains why he is that and is asked to wait. When he looks behind him, Nakamura waves to him from her hiding place.
