Her thoughts are interrupted by girls asking who that handsome guy is. That uniform should be from some ‘intergrated junior high to high school[?]’ elite school so not only he is handsome, he’s intelligent, too. One of the girls wants to marry that kind of person. The other girl says that he definitely came to meet with his girlfriend. Mairu looks out and is surprised that it is Fuyu. At the gate, Mairu goes to him and asks why he came. Is he waiting for someone, and would he want her to help him call that person? She is puzzled when Fuyu says that he is waiting for her. Fuyu says that he came to confirm her condition so let him see her face. While Mairu is puzzled, Fuyu imagines Mairu as a mushroom head. Sparkling Fuyu lets her go and says, what..in the end, she’s only a mushroom.. He stretches and says okay, it’s alright, yes, totally wrong though actually he knew it early on. He says that he is okay now, he’s going home, bye-bye. Mairu seems to want to call out to him when Fuyu suddenly turns to look at her. He tells her, “Your eyes below had super amazing black circles, Maimai-chan. Is it about Tenyuu again? I’ll only listen to you for a while, okay?” Mairu is moved into tears. She exclaims that she’ll leave it up to him. Fuyu complains that if he knew early on, he wouldn’t have come. At a café, Mairu is made to treat Fuyu to a sundae, pie and cake. While Mairu thinks that it is all desserts, Fuyu tells her that it conforms to Tenyuu’s way of handling things, very honest and serious like a good kid. “Speaking of that, since Tenyuu already decided that, then isn’t it good to just let them deal with it themselves? After all, it is the conclusion that he came up with after thinking about it.” Mairu thinks that is right, since Tenyuu wants to do that, there’s no need for her to be this distressed but in the end, she feels uneasy, but no, after all, there’s no problem with the person himself, no, but.. Seeing her dark mood, Fuyu says that she is still at a loss. “Maimai-chan, what do you think of Tenyuu’s decision?” After looking surprised, Mairu recalls him telling her that he’ll take responsibility. Mairu sadly says that she doesn’t want to see Tenyuu get hurt. After a pause, Fuyu quickly devours all the food. Wiping his mouth, Fuyu says he knows already, and he’ll go think of something. As Fuyu leaves to say that he’s full, Mairu is shock that he has finished eating all that. She turns to look but Fuyu has already left. While walking, Fuyu grumbles over Mairu only knowing about Tenyuu, Tenyuu, Tenyuu, Tenyuu. Flustered and frowing, Fuyu thinks what, and it is rare for him to go see her, stupid mushroom. While paying, Mairu is surprised that the bill is 4700 yen. She wonders what method would Fuyu think of and how to do it. 5 days before Tenyuu and Momo start going steady again.
Comment: This chapter makes me think of people who are so fixated with the person whom they lopsidedly like that they did not notice a potential partner right in front of them. =P And, apparently, Fuyu seems to be in some sort of denial that he has fallen for Mairu. It seems that it is because she is a ‘mushroom’, or perhaps, unconsciously, it is because she only thinks of Tenyuu. Nevertheless, Fuyu decides to reluctantly give her hand. Of course, I think he already got his payment when Mairu treat him with those desserts =P As for Tenyuu, I guess he isn’t that sure how to feel about Momo’s proposal but for divorcing because of him, I guess that is enough for him to give Momo a second chance. As a friend or someone in love with Tenyuu, it is understandable that Mairu feels uneasy about it. Maybe aside from her love for him being nipped from the bud, Tenyuu might get hurt badly if Momo leaves him up in the air again like before. So, Fuyu would probably help her in easing those worries. Hm..now that I think of it, maybe aside from ‘looking good’/points to win Mairu for what he’s doing for her, it also helps that Fuyu is somewhat hastening the Tenyuu issue with Mairu so that she can move on. It is for his advantage yet, risky if Mairu ends up with Tenyuu because of whatever help he’ll do. Scans by 夜莺工作室
