Haruhi chances across Arai, a former classmate and friend from her middle school days. This puts Hikaru's knickers in a twist, and sends Tamaki sulking after Haruhi introduces him as an acquaintance (forgetting he once told her never to introduce him as her senpai). Hikaru eventually apologizes to Arai for his rude behavior, but only Haruhi recognizes that it's Kaoru standing in for his twin. Concerned for his brother's emotional growth, Kaoru sets himself up a date with Haruhi, then has Hikaru substitute for him, feigning a sudden illness. Kaoru recognizes that unless Hikaru can learn for himself to be less self-centered, he'll always be ruled by his emotions. Written by
