|the Sports Festival went on for another 4 chapters... it was pretty good though. there was a lot of silly stuff like a relay race where people had to put on a random cosplay outfit.. Hotaru was in an eggplant costume and had to "spit" out the baton to the next person..|
Mikan is mostly focused on the event and ignoring Koizumi and Natsume.. during one of the events, where each racer had to complete the race with another person based on the condition they are given.. the person who got the condition "The person who I love" was wearing a mask and turned out to be Natsume taking over for someone else, and he grabbed Mikan. Mikan noticed the earring and recognized the warmth of Natsume's hand...
Ruka has been keeping an eye on Natsume and is suspicious of Koizumi who is all over him.. while at the same time he also gets further in his own relationship with Mikan.. Koizumi then comes and says something about how his relationship with her won't last.. Later, Koizumi is trying to make friends with Hotaru.. omg no way don't do this, Hotaru is the one person Mikan absolutely CANT lose.. Ruka is spying on them and sees Koizumi trying to use her mysterious alice, and he jumps in and interrupts them... Hotaru is now very suspicious of Koizumi as well.
During the cheerleading contest, where Mikan and others had bee costumes on and were flying aroun... Koizumi does something and Mikan suddenly loses the ability to fly, and an older student who tries to save her isn't able to use his alice somehow.. someone else manages to stop her just before she hits the ground, but she's now fainted and the rest of the event is put on hold. Persona suddenly comes in out of nowhere to bring up the theory that Mikan did this to herself with her nullification alice.
