Chapter 10 of Boys Over Flowers by Yoko Kamio was first released on August 5, 1992 in Margaret No.17. The chapter also marks the beginning of the "Atami Arc". The next entry of the series followed in on August 20, 1992.
Tsukasa Domyoji kicks Rui Hanazawa out of the F4, after the latter protects Tsukushi Makino from bullies. Tsukushi catches a cold from stress and stays home from school. Tsukasa visits her at her family's apartment, much to Tsukushi's dismay.
Rui Hanazawa saves Tsukushi Makino from a crowd of bullies. Tsukasa Domyoji becomes angry at Rui for protecting her, since Tsukushi was given a red card on Tsukasa's orders. He tries to grab her from Rui's arms, which becomes a sort of tug-of-war. She eventually yells at them to both let her go. The fight only ends after Tsukasa declares that he and Rui are no longer friends. Shizuka Todo helps Tsukushi off the floor and takes her to the bathroom to freshen up.
In the bathroom, Shizuka wonders aloud if Rui likes Tsukushi, though Tsukushi readily denies it. Tsukushi is amazed by Shizuka's kindness, despite them being "worlds apart". Afterwards, Tsukushi visits the stairwell, where she meets Rui. She thanks him for saving her, but apologizes for causing the "falling out" between him and Tsukasa. He retorts that the fight had "been brewing" anyway. Tsukushi then meets up with Kazuya Aoike, who invites her to his villa in Atami during the summer. She starts to feel dizzy and passes out.
Tsukushi stays at home to recover from a high fever. Back at school, Tsukasa hears about her condition and later visits her. After hearing his family name, her parents quickly usher him in and invite him to dinner, despite Tsukushi's protests. They also insist that Tsukushi walks him to his car. Tsukasa asks her if Tsukushi will be going to Hawaii for the summer in an insulting manner, to which she yells that she is going to Atami with Kazuya. The following day, Tsukasa announces to Akira Mimasaka and Sojiro Nishikado that they are going to Atami.
