From this point on, no more dates are given for the scenes.
It's frustrating, but the game typically doesn't keep track of days after the end of the Bell One. And since pretty much all of Arata's route takes place after that... well, we're locked into a dateless limbo.

several days later

Yuki: Arata-san! Let's eat lunch!
Arata: Okay, okay.
student 1: Oh, it's the Ace.
student 2: Hey. It's the star who won the Bell One!
Yuki: Oh, thanks.
student 1: Thanks for preventing the school closing!
Yuki: You're welcome...
Arata: What is it, Yuki? Shouldn't you be happier?
Yuki: I am happy.
Yuki: I mean, of course I'm happy that the school isn't closing.
Arata: That's right.
student 3: Hey, it's him.
student 4: Yeah. The guy who abandoned being the Ace's partner in the middle of the Bell One, isn't he?
Yuki: ...
student 3: And he was missing in the all-important final round.
student 5: Minase from the swim club. It seems he's always irresponsible.
(Yuki: Again... We can hear it.)
Maro: Kuu.
Arata: Yuki. Maro says you look scary.
Yuki: But, they...
Arata: Leave it, leave it.
Yuki: But they don't know anything.
Yuki: If we told them, everyone would understand.
Yuki: That it couldn't be helped because your grandma collapsed.
Arata: Mmm. That may be true.
Arata: But my grandma is fine now.
Arata: I don't want to make such a big deal out of it.
Yuki: I understand.
Yuki: Since you said that before too...
Arata: Then, no more talk about this.
Arata: Arata is already done eating. Why don't you eat too? Your katsudon is getting cold.
Yuki: Uwah!! That's right! I made sure to get hot food!
Arata: Amazing. You always get a big portion, but today it's especially piled up.
Yuki: The lunch lady kept it a secret from Sonoda-san and gave me a lot.
Yuki: As usual, you don't have very much, Arata-san.
Yuki: Although you always have yogurt and tofu.
Yuki: I can't believe that's enough.
Arata: Calorie control is also important for diving.
Arata: Speaking of which, I have practice, so I'll be going now.
Arata: Yuki, you enjoy your lunch.
Yuki: Right...
Yuki: ...*sigh*
(Yuki: I wonder why. Arata-san said to let it go.)
(Yuki: Even though he fulfilled his responsibility as my partner.)
(Yuki: The third round couldn't be helped, but he was with me the whole time in the first and second rounds.)
(Yuki: He helped me with my nervousness and encouraged me.)
(Yuki: So what's with this now?)
(Yuki: I'm the hero who protected BL School. Arata-san is the irresponsible guy who bailed at the last moment.)
(Yuki: That's really messed up.)
(Yuki: Arata-san should be angrier since it's about him.)
Yuki: Arata-san...
Yuki: I wanted to talk to him more today...
??: Yuki.
Yagami: What's up? You look bummed.
Yuki: Oh, it's Tomo and Yagami.
Yagami: What's with the 'oh'?
Yagami: You're making a stupid face.
Tomo: What's the matter? You're not with Arata-san today?
Yuki: Arata-san...
Yuki: *siiiigh*...
Yagami: W, what?
Tomo: Did something happen?
Yuki: Yes... well, kind of.
Yuki: When I was doing the Bell One, it was tough, but we met and talked every day, right?
Yuki: But now, not at all.
Tomo: Not at all...?
Yuki: Well, since we're in different years, we can't really meet during class or breaks, right?
Tomo: I guess not...
Yuki: Even after school, I have student council, and Arata-san has his club.
Yuki: We don't really have the same interests, and we don't go out together on days off.
Yuki: It's kind of like Arata-san has become really distant.
Yuki: I mean, it's boring or something.
Yagami: What's that supposed to be? Are you lonely?
Yuki: I'm lonely.
Yagami: Urgh. Don't just admit it.
Yuki: Buuut.
Yuki: Besides, somehow everyone around is acting weird.
Yuki: They're talking like I won the Bell One by myself.
Yuki: There's even guys who are badmouthing Arata-san.
Yuki: It's kind of...
Tomo: ...
Yagami: Ace-sama is displeased?
Yuki: Not displeased, more like gloomy.
Yuki: *siiiigh* I wonder whyyy.

(Yuki: I'm kind of nervous.)
Yuki: Even though I'm going to the pool, I don't really have any business.
Yuki: But...

Yagami: So stupid! If you're gonna go on and on worrying like that, go and see Arata, dumbass!
Yagami: If you have something you wanna say, go say it clearly! That's what a man does!

(behind the school building)
Yuki: That's right...
Yuki: But Yagami's right!
Yuki: If I don't like not seeing him, I should just go see him!!
(Yuki: Although, after all, I don't really have a reason.)
Yuki: I wonder if Arata-san's already at the pool?
(Yuki: If he is, what should I say to him?)
Yuki: Peeking in from the back, if anyone saw me, that would be kind of lame...
??: Huh? What is it?
Yuki: Uwaa!!
Yuki: A, Arata-san? What are you doing here?
Arata: I was running on the track.
Yuki: Running? Why by yourself...?
Arata: Hyahaha. Ace-kun, what are you doing?
Yuki: Oh, this, well...
Arata: What, what? Hide and seek?
Yuki: No...
Arata: Arata will hide with you too.
Yuki: Wah!?
Yuki: Arata-san... aren't you a little close...?
Arata: But it's hide and seek, isn't it? So, who are we hiding from?
Yuki: I told you...
swim club member 1: Seriously!?
Arata: ...*gasp*
(Yuki: That startled me, what was that? That loud voice just now.)
swim club member 2: You guys haven't heard yet?
(Yuki: Oh, they're from the swim club.)
(Yuki: I wonder if they're taking a break? It looks kind of like they got together to talk.)
swim club member 3: No way, Minase?
(Yuki: About Arata-san? What are they saying?)
(Yuki: Are they talking about the final round again?)
(Yuki: Then I have to go and tell them they're wrong.)
Yuki: Arata-san.
Arata: ...
(Yuki: Arata-san? He's grabbing my arm...)
(Yuki: It's kind of like he's stopping me...)
swim club member 2: Seriously, seriously. I heard it all at the joint training camp before.
(Yuki: The joint training camp? That's what Arata-san said was happening after the final round of the Bell One...)
(Yuki: Was that the one with swim clubs from other schools?)
(Yuki: Arata-san was visiting his sick grandma so he ended up not going.)
swim club member 2: That guy said he went to the same middle school as Minase.
swim club member 2: But he said that Minase was well-known for liking guys.
swim club member 1: Seriously?
swim club member 3: Liking guys... like that? Him?
swim club member 2: And that he caused problems in the swim club when he was in middle school.
swim club member 3: What problems? Relationship troubles? Jealousy issues?
swim club member 1: Whoa. A love triangle with all guys!?
swim club member 2: Who knows?
swim club member 1: What do you mean 'who knows?'
swim club member 3: Didn't you say you heard it all?
swim club member 2: Well, asking about details of stuff like that, no, it was a bit much for me.
swim club member 2: He kinda didn't want to.
swim club member 1: Hey, hey, hey, no way, was he a victim too?
(Yuki: Wha... A victim...?)
swim club member 2: Are we going to be targeted too?
swim club member 1: Uwagh. I change naked in front of him every day.
swim club member 3: Well, we all do, don't we? When we change, how about we all hide our fronts?
swim club member 1: Uwah, I'm gonna use a bath towel.
swim club member 1: Otherwise, he'll check out my privates.
swim club member 3: Someone like you doesn't have anything worth checking out.
swim club member 2: I'm pretty confident myself.
swim club member 3: You're an idiot.
swim club member 1: Ah, but I'm so glad Minase didn't attend the joint training camp.
swim club member 1: We woulda been in the same room.
swim club member 2: You were saved!
swim club member 1: Yeah, that would have been... creepy.
(Yuki: What's with them? That...)
Yuki: ...Arata-san.
Arata: ...What, Yuki?

...That's a lie, isn't it? [note!]If you choose this, you are locked into Arata's 'friendship' ending, which is the worst ending in the entire game. :x
Badmouthing you is cowardly.

(decision: Badmouthing you is cowardly.)
Yuki: That. Badmouthing you is cowardly.
Arata: Huh?
Yuki: But it is! Behind your back.
Yuki: Gossiping like that is cowardly!
Arata: Cowardly...?
Arata: Heh.
Yuki: What's so funny?
Arata: But Yuki, you don't care about what they're gossiping about?
Yuki: Oh, well...
Arata: Well?
Yuki: Well... I do care, but...
Arata: You do care.
Yuki: Yeah, well...
Yuki: B, but!
swim club member 3: Hey, that voice just now.
swim club member 2: Minase, you heard...
swim club member 1: Crap, the Ace is with him.
Yuki: Um...
Arata: Ahhh, you found out.
Yuki: Huh?
swim club member 3: Minase... seriously?
Arata: Tee hee hee hee hee. Well, who knowth?
Arata: But even li'l ol' me hath a type. [note!]Arata is speaking VERY flamboyantly in this scene, using feminine pronouns and verb endings, etc. His speech is intended to be shocking and 'stereotypically gay' to the player's ear.
swim club member 2: ...Type?
Yuki: Um, Arata-san? That's...
Arata: Beefcaketh like you guyth aren't my type.
Arata: How thoud I put it? I get all hot for cutie pretty boyth.
Arata: Don't forget it.
swim club member 3: Wha...
swim club member 2: Hey, hey, what's with that?
swim club member 1: Not funny! That's not funny, Minase.
Arata: Huuuh? It's no good?
swim club member 2: Geez, what is that? Minase, you're one of those?
Arata: Hyahahaha. That's right.
swim club member 3: Yeah, yeah, that's enough. The Ace next to him is frozen with surprise.
Yuki: Oh.
swim club member 3: We're going back now. You finish up your running too, Minase.
swim club member 3: And no more jokes.
Arata: Right, right.
swim club member 1: Ahh, can't be helped.
swim club member 2: So hey, anyway...
Yuki: Ah...
Arata: Whew.
Yuki: Um, Arata-san?
Arata: Hm, what?
Yuki: Before...
Arata: Hyahaha. After all, I guess it wasn't funny.
Yuki: Not funny...
(Yuki: Before, they said he likes guys...)
(Yuki: Was Arata-san really joking about that?)
(Yuki: Or was he worried about the swim club members?)
(Yuki: I don't know.)
(Yuki: I don't get it.)
Arata: Yuki, are you okay?
Yuki: No, I was a little surprised, I mean...
Yuki: This is the first time I've heard stuff like what the swim club members were saying.
Yuki: Something like that about someone I know personally.
Yuki: So I was kind of surprised, or rather, I didn't believe it...
Arata: I see.
Yuki: Before, what they were talking about,
Yuki: Was that true?
Arata: Who can say?
Yuki: If it's wrong, you have to deny it.
Arata: That's useless.
Yuki: Useless?
Arata: Right, useless.
Arata: It's useless to deny that kind of rumor.
Arata: Once there's a suspicion, it never really clears up.
Arata: Rumors don't last.
Yuki: Then what are you going to do?
Arata: Nothing.
Arata: I'm going to leave it alone until it dies down.
Yuki: Huh...?
Arata: It's fine like this.
Yuki: Like this...?
Arata: Even though he said to finish up, I think I'll run a little more.
Arata: See you later, Yuki.
Yuki: Arata-san?
Yuki: Oh...
(Yuki: He left.)
Yuki: I wonder if it's okay...
(Yuki: After all, I think he doesn't like that the people in his own club were talking like that.)
(Yuki: But Arata-san said to leave it alone...)
Yuki: *sigh*...
Yuki: I'll go back to the student council room.
Yuki: *sigh*...
