    Summary

    Chihaya and Arata take their positions, and start shuffling their cards. All noise starts to die down.

    One by one, the two start to take and flip their cards. Chihaya’s eye catches a glimpse of furious, burning red, and locks on to chihaya, the 17th poem, on her side. She knows Arata’s noticed, too. Beyond his smile, his eyes are burning to take it. The card that started it all.

    A smile forms on her lips.

    It seems the god of karuta had plans for their game today.

    ***

    Arata will propose to Chihaya, but only if he wins against her in their next game, which happens to be an exhibition match held after the Tokyo Regionals. Chihaya is coming to realize that she wants more of Arata as she comes to yearn for his presence more and more uncontrollably. Their feelings will meet on the tatami as they play a karuta game to be remembered for life.

    Summary

    She starts up the stairs to Taichi's room, and for a brief moment, nerves bubble up in her stomach. Her mind wanders—memories of Taichi telling her not to charge into guys' rooms. And then other occasions, where he's invited her up to his room twice as many times as he's scolded her for it.

    He's sick, so it's not like I'm going up there to—

    It's silly. She's just here to make sure he's okay. Nebulous anxiety shouldn't make her pause in front of his door. She doesn't know why she's scared.

    So—in the same way that she handles all of her fears—Chihaya shoves open the door and plows headfirst into Taichi's bedroom.

    --

    Taichi takes a sick day. Chihaya comes over to check on him.

    Summary

    “That’s not really something you teach someone,” Taichi finally managed to get out. 

    “Sure it is. It’s like karuta: no one starts good. You have to practice, and you only get better with people more advanced than you.” 

    Oh god. Only she would compare making out to karuta.

    Summary

    Her hand rests against her pillow. Always out of reach… is she, though? She's right here—smiling, laughing, eyes falling shut next to him like they're little kids.

    Looking at him, for one last second, like they're not kids anymore at all.

    --

    Taichi and Chihaya, and there's only one bed.

    Summary

    He had no choice but to close the book and put it away after a statement he'd just heard. Throwing it on the floor rather carelessly, he sat up straight in his corner of the couch and, resting his chin on his palm, he fixed his gaze on the girl seated by his desk on the other side of the room.

    She really was being impossible today.

    Summary

    From: sudo.a@softbnk.jp

    Ayase. Here are the exact terms of my victory:
    1. You must date Mashima for 6 months, starting today.
    2. Whenever either of you are in my vicinity, you must act like a couple.
    3. Your social media presence must also reflect this.
    4. I should not hear from anyone that you’re not dating or that you didn’t seem like you were dating.
    5. Your arrangement with Mashima must be exclusive.
    6. If you break any of the above terms, I am within my rights to take whatever punishment I see fit on either of you.

    “Ayase-sensei!” The boy whispers. He looks gleeful at their discovery, as if he’d finally got his hands on a particular treat, forbidden by his parents.
