Next Chapter → 050


Mikan is puzzled and shy after being kissed on the cheek by Ruka. This does not go unnoticed by Hotaru, Natsume, and everyone else. Mikan avoids Ruka, who is teased by Tsubasa. When he sees Natsume, Ruka tries to explain hmself, but Natsume prevents him, pinching his nose. Like Ruka, Mikan is constantly teased for the kiss by her friends. When the music starts again, Ruka, remembering that Natsume didn't dance with Mikan back at the Last Dance from the Alice Festival, suggests that the two dance, surprising them, especially Mikan. Mikan initially doesn't want to due to her complicated relationship with Natsume, but Natsume decides to go along. He takes Mikan's hand and asks if she wants to dance with him, which softens her reluctance and agrees to dance with him.

The dance starts off as quiet, Mikan and Natsume don't utter a word to each other. Mikan feels somewhat weird, but realizes that this is the closest she has gotten to Natsume and for some reason she can't even hear the music as she dances with Natsume. Remembering her smiling when she danced with Ruka at the last dance, Natsume points this out to Mikan and asks her to smile a little, calling her an ugly girl. Mikan retaliates by calling him an awful fox, causing everyone to look at them for making a scene. Mikan and Natsume then call each other names as they dance, which brightens the mood between them. Mikan starts laughing when she realizes that her uneasiness was erased from her agruing with Natsume. Natsume, with a soft gaze in his eyes, asks Mikan what she's laughing at and she says she won't tell him. A couple then accidently bumps into them, causing them to fall on the ground with Mikan on top of Natsume. When their friends come to see if their okay, they see what appears to be Mikan and Natsume kissing. Mikan and Natsume are just as shocked themselves over the incident. Natsume, however, is also angry that he fell down in public and orders Mikan to get off of him, which she immediately complies. Mikan is about to have a panic attack at the fact that her lips likely touched Natsume's and is unsure if it was actually a kiss. Now more angry after finding his lip cut from Mikan, he says outload that Mikan is not only bad at dancing but kissing, which shocks her and everyone else.
