Title: A Maiden's Meal Has Somehow Become a Banquet for "X"
>Somehow, Uruka has managed to happen across both Nariyuki and Kirisu-Sensei as they were going home from checking out the apartment near Ichinose station. Uruka, suspecting nothing about them, invites them over for some ramen at a nearby place that she eats out a lot after swimming practice.

>Uruka thinks to herself again about the events that transpired just a earlier, and decides that it was just the heat of the ramen and the moment. But she still can't help but wonder...
