In a letter from alternative timeline Takamiya, it says that Naruse will be absent for a week starting May 24th. Takamiya assumes this is because it has been 49 days since his mother's death.
Naruse is seen entering the classroom soaking wet because he forgot his umbrella. Takamiya brings a bath towel because alternative timeline Takamiya only brought a handkerchief. Naruse asks if he could walk home with Takamiya. According to the letter, since soccer is on hiatus due to upcoming tests, the six of them walk home together. However, in the present timeline, all of them but Naruse and Takamiya, have other plans and choose to let them walk by themselves. Despite it not following the letter, Takamiya still agrees. On the walk home, they stop by a coupke of view points. While at the top, Naruse asks Takamiya to close her eyes. Naruse gives her a hair clip and takes a picture.
