SynopsisHaving been near Kazuomi's workplace hoping to see him, Rena wants to get her feelings out in the open but fails. As Kazuomi walks Rena to the train station, he comes to realize his feelings for her.
As Kazuomi and Rena are walking together to the station, Kazuomi repeats his question of what Rena was doing in the area and Rena tells him she was on her way back from cram school. However, in reality she was wandering around Kazuomi's workplace hoping to see him but is too ashamed to tell the truth. Judging that it is better not to probe deeper into it, Kazuomi tells Rena he is relieved to see that she is all right as he was afraid she had gotten into some sort of dating trouble which is also why he asked Arata to come there.
Unfortunately for Kazuomi, this makes Rena quite furious for him thinking she would do something like that. While she is giving him an earful Rena gets the feeling she must tell Kazuomi she is in love with him, but as she struggles to say the words Kazuomi manages to make her even angrier by asking if she feels sick. As Rena berates him for depending on Arata instead of acting on his own, Kazuomi tells her he thought it was the best course of action and acted without thinking more about it as he would not have been able to forgive himself if something were to happen to her. Rena relents at Kazuomi's show of concern, and Kazuomi bursts out laughing and tells Rena it is fun to be with her since they had not seen each other after the summer vacation began.
In the evening Kazuomi reflects on what happened during the day, how he felt when he saw Zen Kamioka put his arm around Rena when she was stumbling because of her heat stroke and how he felt he wanted to hold her hand as they walked to the station together. Kazuomi remembers the questions Arata asked him to help him figure out if he likes a girl, and having realized the truth of his feelings he messages Arata telling him he likes Rena and asking what he should do.
