Back in Japan, Lory stares at the globe, particularly Guam, and sighs. He thinks that he had totally forgotten that Kyouko did something way beyond his expectation, she had unexpectedly proposed to go one day ahead, and went there with Jelly. He is worried that Kyouko totally doesn’t know how to speak English. He assumes that she cannot depend on herself regarding the reservation at tonight’s hotel and that the airplane reservation cannot be changed. He thinks no, in the end, if it is Kyouko, since she has already decided, even if her English is bad, she would think of a way to reach her goal. For this overseas film shooting, Kyouko has informed her mother, whom she isn’t good with dealing with, her whereabouts. Flashback: Kyouko told Lory that she mailed to the place where her mother works. She told her mother that she is going to apply for a passport and needs her signature. Although for the Heel Sibling’s work, she already sent the envelope but actually she has fundamentally given up for there is a high chance that she’ll be ignored. End flashback. Lory couldn’t believe that Kyouko would take the initiative to make contact with her mother just to get her signature when she obviously had those pained expressions regarding that issue before. Since she is a minor, she has to have a guardian’s signature for the passport application. Lory didn’t think that Kyouko would not ask him nor the working staff. Lory thinks that it is good that she’s quite honest to the point of being foolish. And, what she said at that time, bothers [/always in his mind] him and then, right now, this side [in Guam] is what bothers him. He already precaution Jelly not to make Ren’s name appear in the hotel so nothing ought to happen. [<- probably about Ren not in the hotel alibi] Lory wasn’t able to predict that Kyouko would do this kind of thing that he felt that he cannot be at ease at all. Since there is no way that can be in constant communication, he hopes that Jelly[/Ren] to deal with whatever happens unexpectedly. Whether lucky or not, Kyouko doesn’t know Ren’s real name nor real appearance so even if they bump into each other at the hotel, there will be no big problem if Ren acts as if he totally doesn’t know her. Back at Guam, after re-surfacing for some unknown number of times, Ren finally gets out of the water. He pushes his hair back and is surprised to see Kyouko staring at him from the beach. He mentally wonders why she is here for shouldn’t she be arriving tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Kyouko wonders if she is having a dream or is this an illusion? Probably, it is..no it isn’t, for if there is truly breathing mermaid in the miraculous sea, then no matter what, it is possible, that’s right, in this beautiful sparkling sea, as if born from the light, a fairy emerges, and this isn’t impossible. Even if he is far away, that dazzling golden hair as if embedded with diamonds. Like a cicada’s wing, that glossiness, that suppleness. Recalling Corn, Kyouko thinks that if he grew up, undoubtedly, it is this kind of feeling. Kyouko is teary-eyed for he had grown up without a problem. She exclaims, “Co-” This startled Ren a bit but he maintains his poker face. Then, he quietly walks away. Kyouko goes to him and calls him Corn, it is her--.. But, Ren just gives her a look as if she is just a lowly human, don’t easily talk with him. This made Kyouko depressed that she sulks by the beach. Ren glances back and also becomes depressed upon seeing her like that. =P Kyouko thinks actually, that is right, for it is normal for him not to recognize her because unlike Corn, who maintained that kind of feeling when he’s grown up, that he can easily be recognized, that special characteristic – those beautiful green eyes wherein if the light shone on them for a second, they would become reddish brown. Those mysterious filled eyes are still quite the same. Whereas, she is poles apart whether outside or inside. She had cut her hair and dyed it brown. Regarding changing, she always thought that at worst, it is enough to just attain up to 70 percent [<- not too sure on this; maybe like she should maintain something from her old looks] and what’s more important is she is vented her anger on someone. There is a scene of Mio-Kyouko throwing her hate balls at Shou. She thinks that the current her is the her who has took the initiative to abandon the her when she was young..all of it. [Not sure why there is an imagine of Ren there ^^;] Then, she looks up to see Corn sitting in front of her and staring at her. She wonders when he.. She looks uneasy while he kept on looking at her. Then, Corn takes a stick and writes on the sand, “Could it be that you’re Kyouko-chan?” Kyouko looks up at him. She smiles and says, “..—Corn..” The next chapter will be out in Japan on November 20th.
Comment: Okay, typical of Ren, he cannot resist doing something upon seeing Kyouko sad/depressed. Apparently, snubbing her is not a good tactic for him since he cannot endure it. ^^; Apparently, he is indeed going to pretend that he’s Corn and what would this encounter bring for both of them. How much and how long can Ren pull it off as a fairy? I think he is playing it a bit safe by not talking. There is also his cellphone he left there..what if it suddenly rings. =P I think even if both wanted to do away with their past, like everything, they still retain something. Ren does seem to be still a kid inside and likes to play with nature. That explains why he came out of the water in full clothes. She likes to walk in nature and imagines all sorts of mythical creatures. Even if she’s already at that age, the power of her imagination is amazing that she immediately thought of him as Corn and not as Ren at all, or even thinking of the possibility that it is him. At least, similar to Kuu/Ren's father? Is that good or is that bad? Would this be Corn vs Ren later on? Of course, Corn isn’t exactly a first love for Kyouko but more like a friend. Hehe, if she only knew the truth that both of them did try to change ‘everything’ including appearance, she won’t feel so depressed over her makeover. ^^ It seems that no matter what disguise, Ren really attracts attention. ^-^ And, the surprising thing is Kyouko actually contacted her mother. Is this just to be with Ren as Setsuka, she finally did that because she needs the signature? It is amusing how they are unconsciously helping each other move on and do the things that they had avoided because of past incidents. I wonder if Kyouko’s mother would make an appearance soon, and how much does she know what Kyouko is currently doing. Again, Lory probably didn’t expect that Kyouko had already met Kuon-Ren before. Ah, what would be his reaction if he knew? ^^ I guess Kyouko is really putting Lory up his toes for she is way too unpredictable for him now. Scans by 红莲汉化组
