Hatsu*haru Vol. 9 (manga)
Relationship woes are plaguing Aoba High...! After confessing his love to Shimura, Taka must now suffer the waiting game: Will she accept his feelings, or was their "relationship" just another headline for her paper? Also trapped by fear, Kagura begins to worry that she has placed her heart in the hands of the wrong boy. Amidst all this, Kai struggles to read Riko, wishing he could be as affectionate with her as he was with other girls. Will these couples work things out themselves, or will divine intervention be required?
