After Shinichirō listens to Noe talk to herself at the beach, he goes home but is unable to sleep due to her words. The following day is the festival, and despite not getting any sleep, Shinichirō does the dance perfectly with all the others. Hiromi tries to tell Noe to leave her and Shinichirō alone, though she still comes to watch Shinichirō dance on stage. Afterwards, Shinichirō blows off Hiromi to go search for Noe so that he can tell her that he finished his picture book. When he finds her at school up in the tree where they first met, Shinichirō watches from afar as she jumps off into the snow below.
