English teacher Uemura Natsumi, who lived in the US until high school, is in charge of a class of first year students at the private Meiryo Gakuen Senior High School. Kashiwagi Shuji is Natsumi’s colleague and a biology teacher in charge of a class of second year students. Natsumi and Shuji were schoolmates in high school and university, and have planned to hold their wedding ceremony three months later. Their marriage has been blessed by their colleagues and students, and they are in bliss. On the morning of the start of the new school term, Shuji awakens and realises that a young female stranger is sleeping naked next to him. Learning that he had just met this girl at a bar last night, and was intimate with her when drunk, Shuji panics. Although reluctant to leave a girl he is not familiar with alone in his house, Shuji hands his house key to her and hurriedly rushes out as he is about to be late for school. He desperately suppresses the feelings of guilt and regret that he feels toward Natsumi and goes to school pretending like nothing happened. The vice principal and teachers in charge of the other second year classes are in the staff room busily preparing for the new school term. Natsumi is also in a meeting with the rest of the first year form teachers. When Shuji takes attendance, he learns that two students, Saeki Hikari and Sonoda Nozomi, have not arrived at school yet. Then at that moment, a female student enters the classroom late. It is Hikari. Shuji instructs the students to move to the gym where the opening ceremony will be held. Hikari, who has remained in the classroom all the way, suddenly calls out to Shuji and shows him something in her hand. It is Shuji’s house key! Realising that the girl he had been with until this morning is Hikari, Shuji is lost for words and can only stare at her dazedly …
