The next day Rin doesn't come to school. Aoki notices this then he notices that Kuro and Mimi are getting texts from her. Reiji asks Rin what's wrong and she tells him she wants to go to school. He is still extremely angry at Aoki for "being alone with her". He also continues to have nightmares. Rin finds a letter in the mailbox from Aoki, and she later tells Reiji she is going outside for a while and he yells at her, thinking she is going to Aoki's house. He puts a padlock on the outside of her room to keep her from leaving. Reiji has some kind of breakdown when Rin threatens to stab him with scissors.
1x11 Everyone Getting Along (December 20, 2007)
As Kyoko channels her frustration about her failed date with Aoki into the dodgeball competition between their two classes, each of the girls attempt to mend their strained relationship with their Aoki in her own unique way. After being trapped together in the gymnasium's storage locker for hours, Rin and Aoki finally reconciled and he assures her that he'll always remain by her side. Upon being rescued, Reiji — hysterical beyond reason due to recurring nightmares about his traumatic childhood and his perceived failure to keep his promise to Aki to protect her daughter from harm — snaps and strikes Aoki in rage before dragging Rin back home. Shirai discourages Aoki from making a volatile situation even worse by reminding him of his responsibility as a teacher to take care of his students without demonstrating favouritism, while Rin is reluctantly cowed into abandoning her attempts to explain the situation to Reiji after perceiving the unmitigated anger belying his seemingly calm demeanor.
1x10 Kind to People (December 13, 2007)
After a serious, heartfelt attempt to confess her love for Aoki is completely misinterpreted by him, Rin's darker side manifests itself, and she resorts to blackmail and emotional manipulation to try to get him to either return her feelings or at least acknowledge his own for her.

Unsure and confused about what she should do, a depressed Rin finds inspiration in the words of her "romantic rival", Kyoko, and she pursues a radical new strategy: treating the object of her affection with kindness.

She mentions Rin and tells Aoki that 'some children will feel lonely'. Later on Rin tries to crossdress as a boy to try to get skin contact with Aoki. The episode ends when Aoki discovers that Rin was cross-dressing as a male in order to try to get close to him. As such, Aoki apologizes to Rin and tells Rin to punish him whatever she desires.
