While at home, Shinichirō Nakagami laments how he cannot express his feelings for Hiromi Yuasa. He notes that when he knew her before he always treasured her smile, but now she acts coldly at home, and Shinichirō regrets not being able to see her tears or any form of significant emotion. At school, Shinichirō sees a girl named Noe Isurugi, and after criticizing her for interacting with chickens, is cursed by her. Shinichirō is quickly beset by bad luck for the rest of the day, and even sees Hiromi undressing to take a bath. To atone for what he said to Noe, he crafts a chicken out of a tissue box for her. The next day he gives the box to her, but she is saddened because one of the chickens, Raigomaru, has been killed. As Shinichirō notes that she did not cry, she tells him she has given her tears away.
