He tries to express his emotions to her, but she is fearful of the relationship. Meanwhile, things threaten to get very complicated when Shotaro Kawai starts to talk of marriage, arranging a meeting between his parents and Hijiri Suenaga’s – all the time while Akira Kuroiwa’s love for his teacher continues to grow...and one of his female classmates starts to fall for him!
