My Review:

Ninako Kinoshita has fallen in love with Ren Ichinose and has confessed to him one day at the subway station.  He thanks her and politely tells her he already has a girlfriend.  She asks him to act like they are still friends so it won't be so awkward between them.

Then summer vacation is over and everyone is back at school. When Ninako first sees Ren it is a little tense between them but they are both trying.

Then Ninako runs into Ando a friend of Ren's since middle school.  He remembers her from the subway station confessing her love to Ren and then he starts teasing her.  She gets angry and this continues until she sees Ren with his girlfriend.  Ando understands and he grabs and runs away with her and tries to comfort her.

Ren warns Ando to not play with Ninako because she's not like the other girls so in retalization Ando warns Ren he is stringing Ninako along.  Ninako thinks Ren hates her when he suddenly pretends he doesn't see her and takes off.  She starts crying so Ando tries to comfort her and kisses on her the forehead.  Ninako freaks out and runs away smack into Ren.  Ando comes looking for her so Ren runs away with Ninako and hides with her in a room and holds her very close which makes her confused?
