When she told this crazy idea to her friends , Ririka and Ichiyo they told her to do go out with him. Tsuge was handsome, he had a good job and definitely he was a very suitable partner. While Saya decided what to do, she had to take care of planning another event due of Valentine's Day.

Saying that, she starts to have hope in her love again until he asks her if she had a boyfriend, to which she replied that she had and that he was Tsuge.
All her work team went for a trip near a lake. When they arrived there Tsuge seems to be cold with her. Why was he acting like that? he was the one that told her about her "rehabilitation". She began to despair and even to became jealous of her companions that approached to him. One of them, Rumi, asked Tsuge to bring her hat which she "accidentally" dropped into the lake. Tsuge accepts to go by boat along with her for it. Saya, mad and jealous, followed them by boat to. When Tsuge got distracted, Rumi kissed him making Saya furious and she fell into the water, losing consciousness. When she woke up, Tsuge was by her side and to clear her doubts, he kissed her.
After all the team returned from the trip, Saya and Tsuge had their first date and began to go out formally as a couple.
