Naoya, Saki and Nagisa are separated from each other during the fireworks festival. Naoya searches for the two girls and first encounters Nagisa.

Things are going well between them when finally, Saki appears. Nagisa then withdraws—keeping a promise she herself made to Saki—leaving the other two alone with each other. Naoya and Saki try to enjoy the fireworks together, but Saki starts worrying about what the other two were doing together before she found them…
