M&C! describes the title story of the How Can I Say Goodbye? short manga collection:
Kao has been in love with Shuhei for quite some time. She's confessed her feelings to him many times before, and has been rejected sternly every time. Shuhei does it to all the girls. Every girl that confesses to him must come prepared to be rejected, as he is always faithful to his girlfriend. But one day, Shuhei and his girlfriend split up, and Kao finds him in a sorry state. Even though she's not his girlfriend, Kao wants to make Shuhei smile again. Can she do it?
