After a romantic dinner date at The Diving Pelican in Windenburg, Akito asks Ayaka if she would like to be his girlfriend. Ayaka really likes Akito, and they’ve had a great time together. But is she ready for an exclusive relationship? Looking into each other’s eyes and holding hands, Ayaka knows that the answer is yes.
Ayaka Arashiro gets a call from Akito Ishikawa, asking if she wants to go out on a date. They spend the day getting to know each other at San Myshuno’s city park, and learn they have a lot of complimentary interests. Ayaka loves to dance, and she’s probably danced to many of Akito’s hit mixes when he was a club DJ.
Ayaka dances the night away at Club Slate, where DJ headliner Kenji Hatanaka is performing. After Kenji finishes his set, Ayaka thanks him for the amazing music. Kenji seems pretty flirty, which he must have channelled into his music, because Ayaka is also feeling it too.
Ayaka Arashiro visits the large gym in Oasis Springs and encounters a handsome looking guy. Akito Ishikawa is on his way to the weight lifting machines when he stops to say hello. Ayaka can tell he does a lot of working out. After a pleasant chat, they exchange phone numbers.

Ayaka hears that the Romance Festival is in town, and travels there with Salim Benali. While Salim reviews some of the festival-goers’ paintings for his critic column, Ayaka checks a guide book to learn more about the festival and the Fashion District. It’s a beautiful part of the city.
The neighbours arrive to welcome the housemates to the Arts Quarter. Genji Fujita and Salim Benali live in the other apartments on their floor, while Khaled Assaoui lives in Hakim House on the other side of the district. Khaled brings along a fruitcake as a welcome gift.
After moving in, the new housemates of 930 Medina Studios take a moment to admire their new apartment. Samir can tell that it has been recently redecorated, Ayaka loves the open layout and Justin really likes the modern furnishings and decor.
