Cover page: “Finally, Tsubaki got her mother’s approval on her future prospect. Afterwards, at the cultural festival, Kyouta and Hananoi--!?” While Tsubaki is busy fixing the hair of a customer for the photo shoot, Kyouta sees Hiro holding the bracelet. Looking at Hiro, Kyouta recognizes him as the hairstylist in the magazine which featured Tsubaki. He wonders why that guy is here at their school’s cultural festival. “Speaking of that, the thing in the guy’s hand is--” Hiro smiles and asks Kyouta what it is. Kyouta turns around and says that it is nothing. While Kyouta is walking away, Hiro remembers Tsubaki telling her that during the end term of the second year, her boyfriend got severely injured and until now, he is rehabilitating at home. Hiro asks, “Could it be that you are Hibino’s boyfriend?” Kyouta turns around that Hiro perks up that he guessed it right. Hiro tells him that he heard it from Tsubaki but he isn’t quite like how he imagined him to be. Pointing at the bracelet, Kyouta asks Hiro why he has that. Hiro says that it fell at THAT PLACE. “Hibino was at my PLACE, frequently helping me WASH [my] HAIR. And it always gets entangled on the hair. Such a hindrance so she removed it and in the end, she forgot to take it again..” Kyouta smoothly says that [what happened was] Tsubaki, she..during work at the beauty parlor, while practicing to wash hair, she took it off then.. just forgot about getting it back. This made Hiro laugh and say that Kyouta totally got it right and it is really boring because it is rare for him to add details to the story to make the explanation interesting. Kyouta admits that he wavered a bit [<- it might be Hiro who said this] but he [Kyouta] really knows what kind of person Tsubaki is. Kyouta thanks Hiro for specially bringing that thing back, and he’ll give it back to Tsubaki. Hiro smiles and just when he is going to give it to Kyouta, he takes it back. To Kyouta’s surprise, Hiro says that he won’t give it to an EX-boyfriend for aren’t they currently separated or one would say, not going steady so there is no reason for him to give it to Kyouta. Kyouta looks dark, angry and speechless over this. Kyouta is surprised when Hiro says that from what Kyouta said just now, it looks like he really understands Tsubaki but is it really like that. Hiro tells him that depending on that thing, Tsubaki cannot overcome being separated and during the times he doesn’t know, Tsubaki has already changed. “Actually, it is through my hand that she has already changed. Making her think that no matter how many disappointments and feeling useless but if it is an important thing, she would absolutely not let it go.”


Kyouta admits that what Hiro said is true, he doesn’t know much but what of it. “It is quite troublesome to force someone to accept one’s words based on experience. If it is like what you’ve said, Tsubaki had really changed, then it would make me eagerly anticipate it. Also-- *putting his crutch in front of Hiro* Depending only on a piece of bracelet that you’re manipulating someone’s feeling, that kind of senseless action, unlike you, I won’t do such a thing. *takes away the crutch* If you don’t want to give it to me, then forget it. Later on, please give it back to Tsubaki..it’s almost time, anyway.” Hiro replies, “..senseless action.. huh.. you said it so stylishly. Then, what if this cannot be seen anymore, then it is also not such a big deal, right?” To Kyouta’s surprise, from the roof, Hiro drops it below the ground where there is a tree. Hiro smiles and says, “Aren’t you going to look for it? Just now, with such strong convictions, you’ve argued a lot with me. If you look for it, then it’s quite humiliating. Haha.” There is an announcement that the ‘open for public’ festival is about to end, thank you for your patronage. Hiro prepares to leave and says that today, Tsubaki worked very hard so how about he reward her with a ‘joyride’ [drive around in the car]. Hiro leaves and Kyouta holds the railing, tightly grasping it. Inside, Tsubaki quickly declines Hiro’s offer for a joyride because afterwards, there is a night festival. Hiro glumly says is that so. She says that compared to THAT, her braclet, thank you for safekeeping. Hiro tells her that it isn’t with him anymore. Freaking out, Tsubaki asks if he lost it. Hiro says that a while ago, he met with her boyfriend and he gave it to him. Hiro notices that Tsubaki perks up that Tsubaki-kun came. Tsubaki wonders out loud why he didn’t go to their classroom. She thinks that it is because she removed the bracelet so Kyouta is angry with her. Hiro asks who Tsubaki-kun is. Tsubaki tells him that his name is Tsubaki Kyouta. Hiro says so he’s called Tsubaki, it is easy to get it all mixed up but beyond his expectation, Kyouta is very handsome. “He looks very frivolous but unexpectedly, he is very sincere and frank, right?” Tsubaki blushes and says that he really knows it. Hiro says that if Kyouta isn’t like that, then Tsubaki wouldn’t have gone steady with him. Tsubaki sweatdrops and says is that so. Hiro adds that Kyouta is also very intelligent and has high self-confidence. “Too stylish so it put me in a bit of bad mood. *slightly embarrassed* I, an Ojisan [/uncle], had done such a childish thing..”
Tsubaki goes ‘huh’ since she didn’t hear the last part. Hiro changes the topic by saying that it is almost time for him to go. This surprises Tsubaki. She bows and thanks him for today. “Mama approved for me to become a hairstylist is Hananoi-san’s contribution and.. the biggest reason for me to be separated from him is my inability to decide on my future prospect. *smiles* So..like this, I can finally go back to his side..!” After a pause, Hiro says is that so. Tsubaki asks Hiro if Kyouta said anything about where he will go afterwards. Hiro laughs and says that he probably already went home. Tsubaki is shock and mutters, is that so. She thinks that Kyouta is furious. Holding up his car keys, Hiro offers her a joyride again [to cheer her up] but once again, Tsubaki immediately declines and says that she is going home now. At home, Tsubaki holds her cellphone. She thinks that even if she had a chance before to already get her cellphone from her mother, but if she got it and yet, wasn’t able to contact Kyouta, she would have been very lonely so it is only now that she got it from her mother. She opens the flip, and thinks that from today on, she doesn’t have to have that kind of thinking. Tsubaki starts to type the title and message. Then, to her shock, she ends up erasing the whole message when she only wanted to erase one character. She calms herself and resumes typing. At school, the bonfire is burning. Some students plan to re-group at the karaoke bar. At the back of the building, Kyouta is on his knees looking for the bracelet. He is using his cellphone as a flashlight. He angrily curses that he cannot find it. “Speaking of that, how can I find such a small thing and it is totally dark now. That darn hair stylist~~” Then, his hand touches something. It is some leftover noodles. He sighs and thinks that if he cannot find it, Tsubaki will be really sad. He looks up to the sky and sees the crescent moon. He wonders why he came there today. Then, he sees something shining on top of the tree. It is the bracelet that is caught on a tree branch. Kyouta stands up on a hollow block and tries to reach and get it. But, he accidentally put the crutch’s end down on the ground, instead of the hollow block that he lost his balance and falls down. Lying flat on his back, Kyouta remembers Hiro saying that he said some things with convictions and if he looked for it, it’s humiliating. Holding the bracelet, Kyouta slightly sits up and mutters that having a relationship with that girl, and things have reached up to this stage, acting cool is also quite useless. Then, he notices that his cellphone is ringing. He reads the message and smiles. Then, back at Tsubaki, she throws her book away and rushes to her ringing cellphone. It is a message from Kyouta saying, “Sure. Let’s meet. I still have a week before the cast is removed. How about we meet after that? *Tsubaki is surprised that there is a message below after a lot of space.* I think that you should know that upon meeting.. do you remember?” Tsubaki thinks that he meant the bracelet. She smiles and happily falls down on her bed while hugging her cellphone. Next chapter September 5th.
