Sakura mentions one of her realisations to Mikoshiba - that he is always the one approached by the girls, never the other way around. This hurts Mikoshiba's pride, and he becomes defensive. Determined to show Sakura his 'awesome conversational skills', Mikoshiba walks up to a group of girls and attempts to flirt with them. However, Sakura soon receives a text message. It is from Mikoshiba (whose contact name is Mikorin). The subject is 'I'm sorry' and the message reads 'Please save me'. Sakura wonders what happened to his pride.
Sakura asks Hori if he had ever thought Kashima was a boy. He replies with a yes, reminiscing about the first time they met. As it turns out, their first meeting was during Kashima's first year and Hori's second year, during the college induction ceremony. Hori had approached Kashima intending to recruit her for the drama club. However, being too focused on her handsome face, he had failed to notice that she was wearing a skirt. Therefore, Hori had went about his school life without realising that Kashima was in fact a girl. The truth only occurred to him when he saw Kashima walk into the girls' bathroom. Sakura mentions how strange that situation must have been.
Seo and two other girls (presumably Sakura's friends) are discussing something when Sakura walks into the classroom. As Seo explains, they are talking about 'guys who are into you giving you stuff'. One girl excitedly mentions that someone had given her an eraser. However, another girl counters that the boy was only returning the eraser after she had left it behind during a test - "That doesn't count!" The girls continue sharing stories about items they had received. Eventually, Sakura is asked whether she had ever been given anything. Referring to Nozaki, or rather Yumeno Sakiko, Sakura replies - "His autograph." Seo condescendingly tells her to give up.
Sakura comes across a page in 'Let's Fall in Love' where Mamiko, clutching an item, says - "This is something that Suzuki-kun gave to me... I'll keep it on me at all times." This leads her to assume that Nozaki must think girls who keep what they've been given are cute. Therefore, Sakura begins to carry her Yumeno Sakiko autograph everywhere - holding it above her head during P.E. lessons and waving it around in the cafeteria, among other things. Confused, Mikoshiba asks Nozaki what her intentions may be. Nozaki waves it off as 'some sort of new health fad.'
