Episode SummaryEdit

Episode StoryEdit

Since spraining his ankle, Misaki feels smothered by Usagi. Misaki wants to help his friend Sumi at the college festival but Usagi forbids it. This leads to a confrontation between Usagi and Misaki. Usagi tells Misaki that Sumi is after him, which Misaki doesn't believe, and Misaki says some harsh things. After their confrontation, things between Misaki and Usagi are very strained. Misaki helps out at the festival and afterwards goes back to Sumi's as it is already quite late. After Misaki has fallen asleep, Sumi calls Usagi and tells him Misaki is there. Usagi turns up and receives a confession of love from Sumi. Sumi says this is why he got close to Misaki, and then twists Misaki's words to sound as if Misaki doesn't like Usagi. Misaki suddenly bursts into the room, having heard everything, and pulls Usagi away from Sumi while stating that Usagi is his. Usagi tells Sumi he doesn't love him, and he and Misaki leave. Back at their flat Usagi tells Misaki that he loves him and he is never going to let him go.
