She goes through it compulsively, turning her room into a Yoshinori shrine, piecing together information about his history, his tastes, his habits- and his girlfriends. Aye, there's the rub. Yoshinori has girlfriends. Miyuki's rivals and enemies. They need to be seen off, so that she can have a clear run at her love object. But when she finally takes the plunge, Yoshinori seems to be expecting her...
