 Eventually Ginta became famous for his illustrated manual, 'Meeting Girls at School Without Fear...of Injury'.

 You know how beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder? Well, apparently so are UFOs and other bright lights in the sky...

 Mieko was glad she could comfort Miki. That's what friends were for. Well, they were also there to tell someone she was a bit color-blind, but that would have to wait --
