Plot Summary

Himeko makes a move on Taichi
Himeko makes a move on Taichi

Three weeks have passed since the incident with Iori, and she has recovered and returned to school, and no incidents have occured. Taichi finds Himeko by herself in the clubroom working on their computer, and they start chatting. However, Himeko inexplicably stands up and begins to strip in front of Taichi and crawls across the table, landing on him and knocking him to the ground. They are interrupted by the arrival of Aoki and Yui, who are shocked by what happened, and Yui, who also seemed to behave without thinking, breaks the table in half. Iori arrives, and both girls snap out of it, with Himeko leaving for home, and Yui crying in Iori's arms.

Later that evening, Taichi found himself running outside from his home after hearing a voice and wanting to meet Iori. He was stopped by his sister when he came to his senses, and received a call from Iori, who, after speaking for a few seconds, also seemed to have been reacting unconsciously. they then talk to each other about the confession, and both felt their feelings for each other had not changed, despite not being able to talk about it to each other for 3 weeks.

The next day at school, Taichi gets pulled aside by Himeko, with Iori presient who tells him that Aoki and Yui are in police custody, but they don't know what for. Fujishima tells them that she knows what happened, and would tell them for two or three hours spending time with Iori. Taichi gets an impulse from a voice to attack Fujishima for touching Iori, but gets stopped by Himeko, and Iori agrees to stay with Fujishima. Fujishima tells them that she was joking, and was going to tell them anyways, but wanted to put some humor into the situation.

Earlier that morning, Yui had beaten up some boys who were picking on some girls at the train station. however, she used too much force, and the police wanted to have a few words with her. Aoki saw and also fought against the police for taking her away. however, Fujishima told them that most likely, they would be let off with a warning. Himeko seems to enjoy this connection and calls it useful while Fujishima says it comes at a price, but she is willing to give a discount, the two of them chuckling miscevously.

Taichi, Himeko and Iori then tell each other that they all are hearing voices whenever they seem to lose control. Heartseed, controlling Mr Go, enters the room and tells them that the voices they hear cause them to act based on their deepest desires, and then also apologises to Iori for throwing her body off the bridge. he then says that this might help them to find their true selves. Himeko asks of hiding in their rooms is against the rules, to which heartseed says that it would still be interesting.

The next day, Aoki returns to school, and is told about Heartseed, and they talk about the instances where the voices cause them to lose control. Taichi mentions Himeko's move on him, and she punches him for mentioning it, calling him out on his delicacy being that of a rock, mentioning her when she disgraced herself. Iori asks what happened, and Himeko tells her what happened then, and that her desires were unleashed after she had come across some dirty pictures.

Himeko decides that unlike switching bodies, which they can keep between themselves, the desires can and have already affected people outside their circle. She then suggests that the best thing to do is either to surpress their emotions, or do whatever they want to prevent stress buildup. Aoki suggests that they work together to help each other, and Himeko, looking surprised, agress. She stays behind after they leave to class, saying that she was going to work on their paper, but then sits on the floor, sounding worried if she had "pulled it off."

Taichi and Iori call each other again in the evening, and Iori tells him it's best to keep status quo and keep their distances while their desires are out of control, to prevent anything dangerous from happening. Iori also admits that she is a bit excited for the release of her true desires, so that it can help her find the real her. Taichi reassures her, and they hang up. Iori then solemnly tells herself she can't screw up this time.
