Kanazawa asks Hino to come with them shopping for food and souvenirs, leaving Tsuchiura, Hihara, Yunoki and Tsukimori at home. Kanazawa left a note saying that they can pre-heat the food for lunch. Unfortunately, Tsukimori burnt the food thus having Tsuchiura make lunch. After the dinner, Tsukimori fell asleep. When he woke up, he heard Hino playing and he made a duet with her. Upon returning to school, Tsukimori is chased by school newspaper reporter Nami Amou. He stumbles upon Hino who just finished practicing her violin and covers her mouth when Amou's voice is heard just outside and after she passes, he releases his cover over her mouth prompting her to leave. While walking away, Hino comments on how she felt Tsukimori's cold hand before and this time it was hot with a burning feeling, realizing what's happened she runs back to the practice room to discover Tsukimori leaning against the wall almost unconscious. As she is about to call for a doctor Tsukimori stops her and losing complete conscious his head falls on her shoulder.
