In the morning, Tohru confronts Kyo, who is heading out while the rai is pouring. Kyo stopped, and Tohru told him that she has something to say. He turns back and looks at her and comments that he also has something to say. Kyo said he has been hiding something and wanted to talk with her about it for a long time. He told Tohru not to laugh if she finds that he is fooling himself. Kyo asks Tohru if she loves her, and he recalls the day he talks with Momoji about Tohru.
He drops his umbrella and wonders why Tohru chose him, of all people. Kyo comments that he thought that Tohru loves her mom more than anyone. Before she gives him an answer, Kyo left, saying that it is unfair. On his way, he keeps on thinking about why he wishes to spend the time he has left by Tohru’s side. Kyo wishes things were not this way since Tohru might end up getting hurt become he is left with less time. Tohru follows Kyo while calling his name to give her a chance to tell him what she wanted to say to him.
