Ikki knew of this. After the heroine had read it, Toma rushes in with an angered face. At first, he starts talking about how it was dangerous to go outside and how she kept "running away" from him. He moves in closer to her and notices her injuries. Toma tells her that since she did not know how his hurt heart felt, he would stop caring if she gets hurt too. Then he says, "If I take all of you by force, you'll no longer see anything but me. Or will you break instead?" The Heroine replies that she knows that he wouldn't do that. So, Toma asks, "If I can't protect you, should I break you? I believe that I'll still love you, so..." Seeing that the Heroine got afraid, he apologizes but says that he doesn't plan to let her hand go. As he closes into her face, the diary that the Heroine was holding the whole time falls down to the floor where Toma notices it. He asks her what it was and the Heroine replies that it was her diary. After he reads her diary and understands what she had felt, he apologies and tells her he loves her. Because she got injured in the last episode Toma takes her to the hospital, where Ikki and his fanclub apologizes to her. Toma leaves and the next scene was at the hospital where everything was dark.
