With Shin’s house undergoing renovations and their current apartment being too small, Shin decides to live with Minato. His family has approved of this arrangement and hands Minato a letter from his mother. Shin assures Minato that he has spoken about him since they began dating, including the time Minato saved him from drowning. He also informs Minato that the renovation will be completed this summer. Shin is happy that Minato agreed, but Minato suggests he stays in the room next door instead. Shin wakes up early to cook breakfast the following day and requests the spare key before leaving. Later, Shin cooks dinner and asks for the spare key again. At night, he knocks on Minato’s door, claiming he’ll have nightmares if he sleeps alone. However, Minato refuses to give in to Shin’s pace. The following day, Shin prepares breakfast once more and asks why Minato hasn’t been looking at him as much. Minato struggles to express that it’s because he loves Shin deeply. Shin overhears Shuu talking to Asuka at the cram school and asks if they are dating. Shuu says they talk and hang out, considering it a relationship, but Shin acknowledges that it varies for different people.

While passing by the laundromat, Shin sees Minato setting up the tree outside for Tanabata and Minato offers him paper to hang his wish. Surprisingly, Shin’s wish is for Minato to confess his love and give him the spare key. Minato refuses to display it outside and pockets the paper. Asuka joins them after hearing the commotion and Minato offers him paper too. Asuka writes that he wants to achieve an A grade on his mock exam, Minato is impressed by his specific wish, but secretly it’s because Shuu agreed to go on a date with him if he gets that grade. Arriving home, Minato informs Shin that Shin doesn’t need to prepare breakfast tomorrow since he has to attend the neighborhood meeting. Instead, Minato plans to prepare dinner and cook his favorite dish, hamburgers. This greatly makes Shin happy and excited for tomorrow while in the other room, Minato looks fondly at the paper with Shin’s wishes. The next day, Minato goes shopping to prepare dinner with Shin while Shin hurries home from cram school. On his way, he notices two elderly people struggling with a heavy box of vegetables and kindly helps them before continuing. Minato opens the door and is greeted by Shin, but he’s taken aback to find his grandparents standing there as well. Minato’s grandparents express their gratitude to Shin for helping them with the box of vegetables and praise him as Minato’s close friend. They visited to discuss something important with Minato. They reveal that Minato’s current apartment will be demolished, and they have decided to rebuild it with a new building. As a result, they have prepared a place for Minato to stay, and Shin is also invited to live there, which he happily and quickly agrees to. While washing the dishes, Shin asks Minato if he’s allowed to stay with him in the new place. Minato replies that there’s no other option and reassures Shin that it’s only for the summer anyway.

Later, the two visit the house where Minato reveals that it used to belong to his grandparents. Shin excitedly exclaims that it’s perfect for their cohabitation, but Minato corrects him, stating that Shin will only be a lodger. Minato shows Shin his room, while Minato’s room is right next to it, and they both have a beautiful view of the garden. Before they proceed further, Minato presents Shin with a set of rules now that they’re living together. The condition is that Shin will only stay until his house renovation is complete. The first rule is to divide the house chores, the second is to notify each other if they are going to be late, and lastly, they will have separate bedrooms. Shin objects to the third rule, arguing that he’s not a kid anymore, but Minato remains firm and tells him to start cleaning. Despite sulking, Shin becomes interested when Minato mentions a reward for him, and he enthusiastically helps Minato clean the house. Meanwhile, Asuka receives the results of his mock exam. Back at the house, the pair have finished cleaning and are taking a rest on the veranda, overlooking the garden. Shin places his hand on top of Minato’s at first then Minato switches their hands with his on top gripping Shin’s tighter, and they share a warm moment. Suddenly, Shin playfully pushes Minato to the floor, asking for his reward. Minato teases him with the spare key in his hand, which Shin wanted so badly. He quickly takes it from Minato’s hand, feeling overjoyed and unable to put his happiness into words at that moment. Filled with happiness, the two share a cute moment under the hot summer. Shin requests Minato to come inside the house, and he will try the spare key, playfully pretending to say, “I’m back home.”

 

Despite Minato still having a long way to go, we can observe positive changes in how he shows affection towards Shin. He cherished Shin’s wishes and even gave him the spare key, displaying progress. The small yet meaningful moment of holding his hand when they were overlooking the garden shows Minato is willing to reciprocate Shin’s love. We know he’s smitten with Shin, he can’t even look at him because he loves him so much, how about now that he’s living with him? And will Asuka get that date he wanted with Shuu?
