Naho progresses to her letter, telling that Kakeru will soon leave the football club. However, Suwa announces that Kakeru will be staying in the football club for good. Naho realizes that every moment mentioned in the letter will soon change for the future. She reads again the letter, this time is about a girl named Ueda Rio who is interested in Kakeru. The letter tells that Ueda will confess her feelings to Kakeru and later they will start dating. As the class ends early, Naho and friends play rock-paper-scissors to determine who will buy drinks and it happened Kakeru loses. As Kakeru buys their drinks, Ueda approaches him. Naho questions Kakeru if he likes Ueda and Kakeru admits that he like Ueda. Again, Ueda approaches Kakeru and after a brief talk, Ueda leaves smiling. Naho looks again to the letter that she should check the case of her eraser borrowed by Kakeru and look for the enclosed note, asking Naho if he should date Ueda. Naho replies to Kakeru's note and leaves it to his locker, but it is too late when she learns that Kakeru and Ueda are now officially dating. Emotionally devastated, Naho left her friends and goes home, drinks the orange juice given by Kakeru and apologizing to her future self, seemingly regretting due to her lack of initiative. Shifting to present timeline where they converge on a lot, reading their letters from their younger selves until they focus on Kakeru's letter. In his letter, Kakeru praises everyone except he never wrote anything about himself. They deduced that Kakeru committed suicide and started crying. Naho resolves that she will do anything to protect her friends and the future.
