Chapter 7 (
Oto Edogawa reveals to Haruto Kaguragi that she is engaged to be married. He acts rudely towards her and wanders around in a daze. Later, Kaito Taira tells him Oto's fiance is Tenma Hase, which causes Haruto to become ill.
Oto Edogawa informs Haruto Kaguragi that she is engaged and asks him to not expel her from Eitoku. Before he can stop himself, Haruto insults her by calling her life "pathetic". Oto tells him that her life has "nothing to do with [him]" and leaves. Tama then kicks him out of the Domyojis yard, telling him to come back when he has apologized. Haruto struggles with his thoughts, until he ends up at Sugimaru Eibi's house. Sugimaru updates Haruto on their rival school, Momonozono Academy, and its star pupil, Tenma Hase. When Sugimaru asks about his day, Haruto feels a strange "pain in [his] chest" and goes home.
Airi Maya asks Kaito Taira over to her home. She tells Kaito that he was taking "forever" to learn about the girl. Airi has figured out Oto's identity on her own, shocking Kaito. She questions why Oto is still at Eitoku since she is "just a commoner", surmising that Haruto is "protecting her". Kaito tries to protest that the situation is "complicated", but Airi cuts him off. She then tells him about the guy she saw Oto with and that she has learned his identity too. After she reveals the guy's name, Kaito rushes over to Haruto's home to inform him.
Haruto has developed a fever by the time Kaito enters his room. His heart thumps loudly as Kaito tells him about Oto's fiance. When he reveals that Oto is dating Tenma Hase, Haruto throws up and remains sick for three days. He says to Kaito that "[he] must've caught some peasant virus" from spending the other day with Oto. Haruto then goes about his heart hurting and entrusting Eitoku to Kaito. Kaito finally gets his attention and says, "I think this disease of yours is called love". Haruto stares back at him in shock.
