Skip Beat! [Chapter 200]

The workers are busy unloading the stuff from a truck. A man is having a hard time with a cargo but a sunglasses guy helped him out. He offers to help carry the cargo. Thinking that he is a worker, the man tells him where it has to be delivered. The man and companion wonder where that guy came from but then he has a staff ID. They are a bit bothered about the color of that man’s uniform..that bright pink. Ren and Kyouko stares as sunglasses guy passes by. Kyouko immediately recognizes it as the LOVE ME pink color. She wonders if that kind of outfit can be bought in some store. Then, she nervously thinks that body build seems very familiar. While Kyouko is wondering if it is really him [Lory] or not, she notices that Ren is looking somewhere else about the shooting ending at 12am. He mentions something about his patience running out and he would lose concentration midway. Kyouko starts to dread that it is indeed THAT GUY. Ren tells her not to mind it for he and THE CURRENT THEM totally has no relation and they are not necessarily seen so for now, it is impossible to have contact with him. Ren is thinking that Lory is worried about him because the last few days, Kyouko has seen him as Kuon and Jelly might have heard of it that he is acting strange. He thinks that his situation is dangerous if right now, he got manipulated by Kuon again and this girl isn’t around. Ren looks at Kyouko and touches her face. He tells her that there’s no need to worry, he is already alright. Kyouko smiles and says, ya. As Ren tells her that they should go, Kyouko thinks that is right, Ren is alright, but the problem now is her. Kyouko sticks out her tongue at Ren and walks away. This made Ren ask if she is still angry. During the shooting, Kyouko is thinking that she can still deceive because it was at the phone before but now, if it is directly seen, everything will be over. THAT GUY will not miss anything any second of one’s action and he can see through it all. Firmly and tightly sealed until now, which is for her a nightmare, THAT box is already totally open. And.. Imagination: Lory has told Ren about it and he saw it with his own eyes. After a tragic failure and encountering unhappiness, she never learned her lesson and unexpectedly had that kind of thinking again. Ren mutters that the other party is him. Ren confronts Kyouko if she is an idiot, sadist or pervert. Kyouko denies it. Ren says that for her that kind of thinking when she swore to him before about protecting this purity so could it be that she’s lying. And even if he doesn’t know what she is thinking but maybe protecting her purity is only limited to a guy kissing her. [<- referring to the Shou kissing incident] Ren continues to talk about these poisonous feelings and Kyouko frantically tries to deny it and she won’t think of it again from now on. Ren is saying that this is a betrayal and she is unexpectedly weak + frivolous. He is disappointed in her. This shocks Kyouko into depression. End imagination.
Chibi Kyouko continues to freak out about absolutely not letting Ren know about this, and of course, that includes Lory since he will absolutely tell Ren about it. She looks around and didn’t see Lory around. She says a little prayer of hope that Lory won’t find out, and also Ren, and if possible, don’t let this poisonous illness progress. Her thought are interrupted when Manaka is asking to go with Cain to the other studio. Kyouko wonders if Manaka is slow-witted when Cain is obviously snubbing her. Cain goes to Kyouko and says that they are going to studio F. He holds out her hand to Setsuka who smiles and says, okay. She thinks that those who have that poisonous feeling would become like Manaka. Cain freaks out when it was Manaka who hold his hand and won’t let go. Manaka starts screaming that she is his hamster so dote on her, dote on her, pat her head, and look, she made hamster ears. Kyouko is super aghast over this and totally terrified over how Manaka turned for the worst from yesterday. Even if the past her is over the top but Manaka is even more over the top than her. Holding up his hand, Cain says that this hand didn’t exist for her so stop sticking around. Manaka calls him a meanie for talking in English and not in Japanese. Cain decides not to use Japanese anymore and Manaka is asking why he is angry. Ren is surprised that Kyouko is not around anymore. Manaka is shouting over how cold Cain is when he said that she is cute like a hamster so she wanted to be a bit cuter. Murasame tries to tell her that Cain didn’t say cute. While Murasame tries to make Manaka snap out of it, Ren sees Kyouko walking away. Kyouko is thinking of how to lock up that box again for becoming crazy like that [Manaka] is what she dreads. As the locks are being locked up again, Kyouko doesn’t want this to progress or else, she’ll end up like before – having no other wish but to be at Shou-chan’s side. She is startled when Ren suddenly grabs her shoulder. Everyone is shock and Murasame shouts that those pervert siblings are at it again. Hugging Setsuka tight, Cain apologizes that it is his fault for whether it is doting on pets or being carried away, he shouldn’t be in a place where she’s not around. And, there won’t be a second time of letting some other girl touch him. “So, please, quickly be happy again..Setsuka..” Kyouko looked totally scared for he is doing this while she totally isn’t in Setsuka mode. Then, Cain whispers something to her. This somewhat calms Kyouko down and she closes her eyes. Then, she opens them to see the aghast look of the others. As the others pass by, she is surprised to see Lory watching them. Then, Lory takes off his sunglasses. Next chapter will be out in Japan on June 5th.
Comment: Hehe, so much for hiding it. Lory obviously saw through it but I don’t think he will tell Ren about it..maybe hint though or else, we’ll be in for a long stalemate. Aside from fearing of becoming totally love crazy, it seems that Kyouko also fears of letting Ren be disappointed in her. This one is a bit easier to solve once she knows that Ren would actually be happy to hear that she also likes him. Ren is actually acting kind of clingy already on her but it is on the pretense of being Cain. If she only knew how much of that is his true feelings. =P I think Kyouko would have less to fear if she knows that the person she likes, loves her mutually. The times when she thinks about ‘not wanting to be like that’ are when she sees fangirls showing love but the object of their attraction doesn’t return their feelings as with Manaka towards Cain. It was the same with her before. Anyway, things are getting really interesting so hopefully something great is coming up soon. ^^ Scans by 红莲汉.
