Due to this situation, Fumiya and Hanabi start worrying about their friends. One evening, the practice gets canceled due to heavy rainfall.

However, they soon spot a lone figure in a rain jacket when someone was walking around the track. Initially, they think it’s Minami and rushes towards the track before discovering that it’s Aoi. Meanwhile, from another part of the school, Minami watches Aoi.
