Akira Tachibana is working at Cafe Restaurant Garden, operated by her manager, Mr. Masami Kondo. Her coworkers say Kondo is quite pathetic, because he keeps apologizing to the customers. Tachibana takes her break in the office, and finds a boy doing his schoolwork. That boy is Kondo’s son, Yuto, and Tachibana teaches him to play his recorder outside the restaurant. Tachibana meets her former Track club teammate Haruka at school, and they talk about the upcoming tournament. On her break, Tachibana finds Kondo’s shirt hanging on a chair, and remembers the first time she visited the restaurant. On a rainy day, Kondo treated her kindly, with a free cup of coffee and a magic trick. She takes Kondo’s shirt, and sniffs it with some kind of nostalgia, until Kondo comes back and sees her sniffing the shirt. Tachibana awkwardly puts it back, and sits to finish her break, blushing in front of Kondo.

It is a slow day at the cafe, so Yui asks Tachibana to name things that make her heart flutter to pass the time. While Tachibana is thinking, she sees Mr. Kondo, and quickly changes the subject. A customer forgets his cellphone so Tachibana tells Mr. Kondo, who tries to get the customer’s attention. He is unsuccessful, because the customer is riding a bike, and decides to wait for him to come back, but Tachibana runs after the customer, and is able to catch him. Walking back, Tachibana collapses in pain. Mr. Kondo takes Tachibana to a nearby clinic to get her ankle checked. Leaving early, Tachibana recalls the day’s events. Mr. Kondo calls Tachibana that night, asking if she is alright. The next day, Kondo visits to apologize to Tachibana’s mother, regarding the previous day’s incident.

As Tachibana watches from afar, she remembers when she was part of the team, and abruptly prepares to leave. The track team offers to eat at the family restaurant where Tachibana works, but she curtly declines, only to backtrack, explaining it is too far. As she leaves, it starts raining. Tachibana reminisces on how she injured her ankle doing track, and how she eventually met Mr. Kondo. The rain becomes a downpour. Mr. Kondo goes out for a smoke just as Tachibana walks up. He tries to get her to come inside, but she confesses again and walks away. Mr. Kondo stands in the doorway, shocked.

Unwittingly, she allows him to read one of her school textbooks, and he discovers doodles revealing her interest in Mr. Kondo. Kase agrees to keep her secret, but only if she goes on a date with him. Though both dates take place in identical venues, Tachibana finds her date with Kase revolting, while her date with Kondo is perfect.

When Mr. Kondo returns, Yuto suggests Tachibana surprise him, and she hides in a closet. Mr. Kondo agrees to care for the hamster, and Tachibana bursts from the closet, collapsing from the heat. Yuto tries to pour her a drink, but trips and spills it on her shirt instead. Mr. Kondo loans her one of his T-shirts, and walks to the laundromat. When it starts to rain, Tachibana and Yuto bring Mr. Kondo an umbrella, and she expresses her desire to know Mr. Kondo more. The restaurant staff goof off, talking with Mr. Kondo about the hamster, and Kondo, feeling accepted by his staff for the first time, allows this.

Recalling her experiences with Mr. Kondo, Tachibana encourages Yui not to give up on her romantic pursuit. Tachibana tells Mr. Kondo that, since they’re friends, she wants to text with him. Haruka encounters the former captain of the school’s soccer team, Yamamoto, and runs off when the conversation shifts to Tachibana.

Mr. Kondo hears one of Chihiro’s books is being made into a film, and Chihiro shows up to Kondo’s apartment unannounced.

Tachibana finds Yuto in the office during her break, and he asks her to teach him to run for his PE class, having promised his dad to keep running until he crossed the finish line. Mr. Kondo thanks Tachibana, and reveals he also made a promise to continue writing. He asks if perhaps she too made a promise that she is neglecting. As Tachibana reminisces over photos with Haruka, she looks over a guide to rehabilitation. Mr. Kondo announces his recent visits were about a new restaurant menu, and that he must return to the head office. He forgets his binder, so Tachibana leaves the restaurant to take it to him.
