When Misaki becomes sick due to stress and fatigue, Takumi notices and advices Misaki to loosen up, but she rejects his advice. At work, three male students from her school, whom she routinely ridicules as the "Idiot Trio", discover Misaki in her uniform. The three start to harass Misaki, but Takumi intervenes.

At Maid Latte the next day, the maids are cosplaying characters from the anime “Maid Witches” and Misaki is acting a little nervous around Takumi. Hinata arrives and the jealous tension between him and Takumi escalates to a point that Takumi decides to leave. Hinata asks Misaki to “cast a spell” on him so that he can find the cherry tree. After her shift, Aoi asks Misaki to explain her relationship with Takumi. She ponders her answer while taking out the trash and finds Takumi waiting for her - also wanting to know the same answer. To hide her embarrassment, Misaki throws a punch at Takumi, but he blocks it and tells her that he'll make his feelings clear instead. He does so by pulling her into an embrace and murmuring a 'no-lying' spell in her ear, demanding she answer his question truthfully. She answers somewhat off topic, but stops resisting his hug. Meanwhile, Hinata finds the cherry tree and convinces himself that his meeting with Misaki was fated.|

|Hinata reminiscences about his past and, despite being popular with the girls in middle school, he continues to think about Misaki. Sakura invites Misaki and Shizuko to Yumesaki's Culture Festival where UxMishi are playing a concert, assuring Misaki that Kuuga has changed for the better. Takumi also gets invited after “begging” Misaki to let him come. At Maid Latte, the café hosts a Fortune Telling Day. As the fortune teller, Erika tells Hinata and Takumi that their relationship with Misaki is “flat as a paper balloon” and “incompatible like fire and water” respectively. Takumi waits for Misaki to finish her shift and appears depressed about the fortune, provoking Misaki to emotionally ask if he's going to give up on her over of a fortune - and causing her to blush. Hinata overhears and is annoyed. The next day, Hinata helps Misaki clean the school and ends up getting them both wet. With her clothes wet and revealing, Takumi covers her with his shirt and accompanies her to get changed. Hinata cries after he realizes what his friends from middle school were warning him about — that Misaki may already be in love with someone else. Later, at the Yumesaki Festival, Misaki and Takumi get separated from Sakura and Shizuko in the crowd of UxMishi fans. With no way of reuniting with them, Takumi suggests they enjoy the festival together instead.|

|After getting away from the crowd, Takumi and Misaki join a contest for couples. After initially being reluctant, Takumi's teasing fires Misaki up and they complete the contest and win special tickets to the post-festival fireworks. After the UxMishi concert, Misaki tries to find Sakura and Shizuko, but finds Kuuga instead. Misaki gets some reassurance that Kuuga is serious about Sakura, whilst Kuuga wonders why Misaki isn't dating Takumi yet and accuses her of being cruel to him. After the festival, Misaki and Takumi get dressed up in Romeo and Juliet costumes as part of their prize, and go to an empty classroom to get a better view of the fireworks. With Kuuga's words in her thoughts, Misaki confesses to Takumi that she doesn't understand her feelings for him, but wants to be with him. He hugs her, tells her he loves her, and they kiss during the fireworks. Later, they walk around the festival hand in hand. In the epilogue, as everyone continues with their daily lives, it is revealed that Suzuna knows her sister likes a boy, Aoi is living with Satsuki again and Hinata is still vowing to win Misaki’s heart.|

|After getting her maid uniform torn, Misaki asks Suzuna to fix it while she receives Suzuna's prizes delivered by Shizuko and Sakura. Much to her shock, her mother and Suzuna try on her fixed maid uniform before finally getting it back on her. While getting a stone to use for making Tsukemono, Hinata and Takumi arrive at the Ayuzawa residence to give them some vegetables delivered by Hinata's grandfather. After having dinner, Misaki asks Takumi if he's still taking care of the kitten he adopted and he replies that he is, but hasn't given it a name yet. Misaki suggests that he should name the kitten "Licht" after the tea tin box delivered to Suzuna. Takumi thinks it's a great name since "Licht" is German and Dutch for "Light".|
