Everybody's dealing with the new understanding between Sawako and Kazehaya. Friends and rivals contemplate their own positions and love lives (or lack thereof) while the main couple nervously, but happily, tiptoe down their new path.
"Ulterior motives!" Hee hee heeeee. So cute. Now the lucky reader gets to watch these kiddos adjust. And it's also nice to see their friends have not been forgotten amidst all the starry-eyed romance, as the writer reminds us they all have their own interior existences to explore and share.
