Benio explains that when Kobeni was younger, Hakuya protected her when she fell down a cliff, leading Kobeni to feel guilty that she couldn’t remember it.
Episode 4: She’s Just a Pervert
The morning after learning about Hakuya, Kobeni ends up with a fever due to her weak body. As Benio informs Mashiro and Hakuya about what she told Kobeni, she blames herself for Kobeni’s accident back then, as she had Kobeni take her place alongside Hakuya so she could go and play. The next morning, Kobeni opts to stay at home alone whilst the others go to school, though Mashiro comes back to help her as soon as school ends, where Kobeni shows her the scar she received back then. The next morning, as Kobeni starts feeling a bit better, Hakuya suddenly rushes out of the house when he notices Kobeni struggling to face him properly. Kobeni catches up to him and states that, even though she doesn’t remember anything, she owes him her thanks, becoming awed by his smile. Later that night, Mashiro and Hakuya receive a letter from their family, saying they will be sending someone to check up on them.

Kobeni learns about a member of the Mitsumine family coming over, along with the fact that Mashiro is nine years old. Whilst shopping for supplies for her guest, Kobeni comes across a young woman who had gotten lost on her way somewhere and helps her out. This woman turns out to be Mashiro and Hakuya’s mother, Shirayuki, who casually lets slip that their family isn’t human. This causes Kobeni to have another fever as she remembers more things about her past, where Hakuya was allegedly a dog. Shirayuki later tells Kobeni that her constant fevers are the result of Hakuya giving her half of his inhuman power to save her life. Before taking her leave, Shirayuki gives Kobeni her thanks for treating Hakuya well, mentioning how he picked up his habit of stroking her head from her.

Kobeni’s mother, Akane, who had always known the Mitsumines weren’t human, tells Kobeni that she is no less thankful to them for saving her life.

As Kobeni turns her attention towards Valentine’s Day, she ponders whether she should marry Hakuya or not.

She finally gets the opportunity after her friend, Mayura Momouchi, comes over.
Episode 7: That’s One Thing, This is Another

After Mashiro and Hakuya confirm this isn’t the case, Konoha tells Hakuya that, as a male of the same species, he should marry her, which Kobeni overhears.
Episode 9: How Humiliating, I’m So Embarrassed
As Mashiro informs Konoha about Kobeni and Hakuya’s engagement, Hakuya chases after Kobeni, assuring her that he is already engaged to her. When Niko overhears this and asks if they are dating, Hakuya denies it as he wanted to respect Kobeni’s wishes about keeping the engagement a secret. Hearing about this from Niko, Konoha believes she is still in with a chance. As Kobeni asks Konoha to keep her engagement a secret, Konoha suggests that if she is against it, she should just break it off. Kobeni cries upon hearing this, and the conversation is soon interrupted by Benio. Later that night, Kobeni assures Hakuya that she isn’t against their engagement, which Mashiro interprets as a love confession, encouraging Hakuya to get Kobeni something spectacular for White Day.

Benio seems to grow colder towards Hakuya, who seems a bit downhearted when Kobeni denies confessing. Meanwhile, Kobeni clears up the misunderstandings surrounding the engagement with Konoha, who attempts to stave off Niko’s interest in Kobeni by giving her a plain article to write about. Later, Mashiro explains to Kobeni that Konoha’s interest in marrying Hakuya was only because they are the same species, revealing that Kobeni is also similar to them due to having half of Hakuya’s power. The next day, Kobeni decides to buy her and Hakuya matching handkerchieves, also buying some for Benio and Mashiro.

The next morning, after Hakuya and Mashiro receive another letter from their clan, Kobeni discovers they have disappeared, along with their belongings.
Episode 12: Do You Understand? I Understand
As Kobeni worries about Hakuya and Mashiro, the only clue she has being a text saying they had gone back to the mountains, Mayura encourages her to go to the mountains herself to learn the true story. Taking refuge from the snow, Kobeni is eventually found by Hakuya and Mashiro, who had only returned home to harvest some edible plants that only grow on their mountain. Kobeni comes down with another fever as a snowstorm picks up, with Hakuya heading off to look for help whilst Mashiro uses an opportunity to look for firewood. Delirious from her fever and worried about people leaving her, Kobeni heads off on her own in search for them, with Hakuya managing to save her from falling off a cliff. After Hakuya agrees to be more open with Kobeni, everyone returns home to their everyday lives.
