Later on, Himari is shock that Keita is actually there. She scolds him as to why he is there when she told him not to come and he’s causing a ruckus outside the store. Keita says that it isn’t like he wanted to go on his own, but rather, her mother asked him to check on her. Also, they will have a barbecue today so buy some meat on the way home. Himari is furious over his attitude, but then, he protected her. Ryou sadly glances at Himari who is looking at leaving Keita. A waitress asks Himari if that handsome guy who helped her is her boyfriend. While Ryou and club members are eating at the restaurant, Himari says no, but a friend she knew since elementary. The waitress asks if she used to live nearby. Himari says yes, they’ve moved before. This made Himari recall the house where they lived while her father is still living. It pains her to recall of the past but today, she wants to pass by and see her old house. After buying the meat, she turns to the corner and wonders if it is the same as before after four years. To her dismay, the house is going to be demolished. During their family barbecue, Shigeru tells Himari that she isn’t eating, doesn’t she like barbecue. Himari says that she likes it. He asks how come she looks glum, is it about work and don’t force herself. Shaking her head, Himari assures him that it is fine. He tells her that if something happens, she should definitely tell them about it. Then, Keiko tells Shigeru that the meat is burning. He asks for another drink to which Keiko says okay but Keita says that he drinks too much. Himari looks at them and thinks that this is obviously a rare barbecue and yet, she kept on thinking of her old house. Keita quietly watches her. Later on, Himari decides to check the old house again before it is demolished. Upon arriving, she sees that the house is currently being torn down. She is teary-eyed for it is the house where she lived with her father. To her surprise, Keita is behind her and says that it turns out that this is what’s going on with her.
Comment: So, harassment is solved with the help of the two guys. Ryou got her away and Keita threatens the guys. Apparently, she isn’t going to resign just yet, and that is good. The next issue is her old house being demolished. It is indeed sad to see the house one used to really cherished being demolished. As usual, Himari keeps up her pretense of being happy. I guess Shigeru didn’t pursue it further to give her space and it is up to Keita to ‘investigate’ the real reason. Well, it seems the pattern of this series is first part resolve the cliffhanger/problem of last chapter then the second part is new problem. =P Scans by all★wink汉化组
