Reishou backs away and apologizes for he is about to talk when half-way.. Blushing Yuulin says no, not.. Confused Yuulin thinks that although it is because she rushed head on towards this and that issue. *chibi Yuulin says about the royal younger brother issue and about the conspiracy issue.* But basically, I’m mentally prepared to hold on to ‘death is preferable to dishonor’ [Better broken jade than intact tile idiom]. I like you.” Yuulin’s heart starts beating really fast as she looks at Reishou glancing at her.

Yanagi walks with Kujou while holding her hand.

I think I realize it already. My eyes have its own function wherein it has a strong unlimited beautification filter! In my eyes, it looks like this. *somewhat flustered Kujou clinging on to Yanagi* But actually, it is definitely like this. *drooling Kujou thinks that her stomach is bursting from eating that she wants to sleep* Okay, okay, okay, okay, calm down. I already won’t dare to casually get carried away again. (<- already has a considerable serious psychological trauma.) I’m afraid that she was just in a hurry that she held my hand. Surely, it is also simply because she didn’t think too much about it.” Looking at their held hands, Kujou thinks that Yanagi is constantly holding her hand. “He obviously has someone he likes, yet he would still hold someone else’s hand, why..? *Yanagi is puzzled over the cold chill he suddenly felt* (Rather than saying not thinking too much, one should say that it is, suspicious..)...
