Ren’s Version
Ichijo Ren takes an interest in Aizawa Rina who seems curt and sullen at a university club’s welcome party and starts talking to her. Rina is beautiful but not the straightforward type. He never thought that they would get more deeply involved but a chance encounter at a job search site brings them closer together. Even though Ren feels that they are more than friends, he becomes a working adult without being able to take the first step forward. Now that he is working for a trading company, Ren enjoys life more than ever and before he realises it, he and Rina have drifted apart. Then one day, he hears that she is getting married. When he attends her wedding ceremony, he is somehow able to get over her. Taking the cue from the unofficial announcement of his posting to Singapore, Ren decides to marry his girlfriend Asai Mizuki. Life in Singapore is peaceful but Mizuki is quite bothered about him talking about Rina a lot. Ren believes he is already over his feelings for her. While he is back in Japan temporarily, he sees Naoya walking closely with a woman who is not Rina. Wondering whether Rina is happy and concerned about her as a “friend”, he decides to call her after some hesitation.
