Still at the beach, Kyouko tearfully tells Corn that she vaguely felt that gods would only listen attentively to the wishes of rich people and her wish cannot be transmitted to the side of the gods if she didn’t give a lot of money so in the end, it’s great that she gave a ten thousand yen. There is a scene of Kyouko reluctantly giving her ten thousand yen bill into the donation box of the shrine during hatsumode [first shrine visit] with the Daruma couple. Kyouko cries over how great it is that Corn has already become an outstanding adult. Ren sweatdrops thinking that it turns out that Kyouko has always been worried about Corn since THAT TIME. [<- when Reino mentioned about Corn and Ren comforted her] He thinks that even if at that time it seems that Kyouko is already ‘alright’ but in the end, it’s great that he didn’t ignore her and left because of his fear that he’ll expose his identity. Kyouko tearfully says that she has been worried about him since he always listens to her heartaches but he never told her of his heartaches so she always thought that it would be good if she had listened to his heartaches. After wiping her tears, Kyouko looks at Corn and asks if he already can fly far away. She looks surprised at Corn who is midway trying to pat her head. While Kyouko is puzzled over what he is trying to do, Ren is stunned for it is dangerous to touch her. This will make Kyouko think that ‘ah, this is how Tsuruga-senpai touch her and it is a bit the same’ and it would give her a feeling of déjà vu. He wonders if he is thinking too much but no, wait..she can absolutely see it because before, she seems to have seen through his bone structure kind of thing. She has that kind of skill so he thought of running away from her. Right now, it is like, she is under shock of this ‘reunion with Corn’ and happily into fairy tales that she possibly has not noticed it yet. But, it is only a matter of time before she can press on this recognizing 3D face system and he’ll be seen through. Ren holds a stick and writes on the sand. He apologizes for actually he wanted to use magic to borrow a voice. He explains that resistance to coming to this world is weak if he’s young so he can use his own power to talk but he can no longer do it when he became older. So, he has to lend the voice of someone from this world to speak. Kyouko says is that so, coming to this world definitely has a lot of suppression for it is like humans cannot just go into the water and breathe without equipment so with the help of gills [<- I think it is a typo for it is written as fins] then, one can breathe in the water. Thinking that she catches on quick, Ren gives her a thumbs up. Kyouko exclaims she knows and she felt that it is boring that he would always write so she’ll help him by offering her voice. Kyouko thinks that she would have complex feelings if she can hear her voice on Corn but to see this magic, she is so excited. Ren thinks that Kyouko has a huge expectation on him even if he has no way of doing any special amazing thing.
Corn holds out his hand and touches his lower eye. He closes his hand to a fist. Kyouko closes her eyes. Corn touches her head, then her forehead. Then, Kyouko opens her eyes when Corn snaps his fingers. Kyouko wonders if it is over. Corn snaps his fingers again. Kyouko asks if it is over. Corn nods. Kyouko is furious for she didn’t feel a thing for she thought she should feel her body becoming light, or the magic surging through her body for a moment. Corn calls out, “Thank you, Kyouko-chan.” Kyouko is stunned that she turns to look at Corn. She asks how come he isn’t using her voice. Corn says that it is easier if it is a same gender voice. Puzzled Kyouko exclaims that obviously the owner of that voice isn’t around then why that voice. Corn says that it is because it is in her mind, the strongest distinct existence and generally, it is the last guy she met, the one whom she repeatedly recalls [/pondering over]. While Kyouko looks at him with huge open eyes, Ren wonders why there is no reaction for he was expecting her to say ‘I have not been repeatedly recalling’ and [he?] prepared a different reason. He realizes something and wonders could it be that she is indeed repeatedly recalling Ren. Kyouko hits her palm with a fist and exclaims okay, she’s ready. Right now, she is thinking of some other guy -> Yashiro asking about her work schedule for the month. Kyouko tells Corn to use that guy’s voice. After a pause, Corn says that this voice is okay. Going crazy, Kyouko shouts that it is okay for him but not for her, change the voice, use some other guy’s voice, anyone would do. Slightly irked, Corn asks if she hates this voice. Kyouko exclaims no, it isn’t hate but perplexed for THAT guy is her most respected senpai. She tells him that for her who is aspiring to be an actress, he is simply the industry’s heavenly person. She thinks that if she closed her eyes and she can imagine it. She freaks out over imagining Ren calling her, ‘Kyouko-chan’. Ugh, such destructive power that it causes her face to distort. She mentally tries to endure and straighten up her face. While Ren is sweatdropping, Kyouko tells him that she’s very perplexed for it is like Tsuruga-senpai is talking to her. She says that it is because she isn’t used to it and she’s too concerned that her nerves[and muscles] are weak so doesn’t he think she’s quite pitiful like this. Kyouko pleads Corn. Corn says that seeing her like that, he also wants to change his voice but in the human world, he can only use magic once a day. At a bar, Kyouko buys a coconut drink called ‘engrossed[/lost] in Guam’ and paid ten US dollars for it. While carrying out the drink, she recalls Corn telling her that an adult fairy is suppressed so he can only use magic once and he also cannot use his wings to fly..being an adult is quite inconvenient. Kyouko thinks that she really wanted to see him fly in the sky which he wasn’t able to do before but then it is impossible for people would see him and it will cause a ruckus. She decides to get use to the ‘voice’ for even if it is Tsuruga-senpai’s voice, Corn is also not Tsuruga-senpai because Corn isn’t human. She feels like a pervert that her heart beats very fast just because he called out ‘Kyouko-chan’.
While going to the porch where Corn is waiting, Kyouko starts thinking that even if it is a bit perplexing, when his voice became like Tsuruga-senpai’s, isn’t it quite ‘very similar’ and even the face is quite similar. When they were talking, she couldn’t look straight or else, she’ll become restless. Unexpectedly, Tsuruga-senpai suits having golden hair and bluish-green eyes type... Sees Corn waiting, Kyouko thinks that speaking of that, he is almost the same as Ren’s height. That matching slender height, slender hand, slender feet[/legs] which made her feel that he is a ‘faraway from earth human’. To correctly say, ‘a fairy standard’ and secretly thinking about it.. She looks at Corn’s ‘body parts’ intently and realizes something. Meanwhile, Ren looks blank. He felt awful for making a minor-aged girl use her money on him. Kyouko had offered to pay for the drink since he doesn’t have any money so he should just wait there. He thinks if he knew early on that he is going to use that ‘use magic only once a day’, he could have made a leaf into money so that he could at least buy her a drink. A note mentions that what he kept at the rock = wallet and wristwatch, are now in his back pocket. He thinks that it isn’t good to do that either since Kyouko would scold him that it is like using fake money and what if the money becomes a leaf again which will trouble the store. Ren chuckles that it feels fresh, and not because he is being scolded but it is absolutely impossible for Kyouko to use that tone to say those words at him when he is acting as ‘Ren’. It feels that because she doesn’t ‘revere and respect’ him, there is no protective screen between them so the degree of closeness has increased. He finds that amazing even if he knows that she only thinks of ‘Ren’ as ‘senpai’. But then, he didn’t think that it is more serious than he anticipated since she mentioned that he is the industry’s heavenly person..what is he, a god or a Buddha. And because of that attitude, on contrary, he has no way of openly feeling happy about it. He even said ‘repeated recall’ and he fears that it is only about work [that Kyouko is recalling]. He reckons that she is thinking of him whether he forgot to eat or not. For Kyouko, ‘Ren’ is a hard to understand existence who totally isn’t connected [to her] outside of acting. Flashback: While walking, Kyouko mentioned that she’s thirsty. Corn mentioned about buying a drink. Kyouko said that she doesn’t want an ordinary juice, she wants a coconut. She described to him what a coconut is. She also mentioned about drinking it before when she was a child so she always wanted to drink it again. She asked him to accompany her. She happily says that this way, she’ll forgive him for not showing her his flying. End flashback. Ren sadly smiles and thinks that it is quite ironic that he never thought that after things have reached this stage, a time like ‘admiring Kuon’ would arrive. He looks at the side to see Kyouko looking at him. She looks surprised. She stutters as she asks why he has the same body information[/measurements] with Tsuruga-senpai. Looking serious, Ren thinks that maybe, at this time, it really has come closer, the day when he thinks that he can forgive the existence of Kuon in his heart. Next chapter will be out on December 20th in Japan.
Comment: And, what a lot of you were waiting for has arrived. Kyouko has finally realized the similarities with Ren and Corn. So, it is now up to Ren – will he still continue to lie or tell her the truth? From his ending thoughts, it seems that he will tell her the truth. I’m thinking that he will or else, I’m just overly optimistic. ^^; Ren knew that it is inevitable that she’ll notice it. It makes me wonder if that is why he used that ‘using magic to talk’ to somehow get Kyouko to talk about Ren or it is just because Kyouko wants to see something magical from him since he mentioned it after almost patting her. Or maybe, he is giving her a huge hint who he is. Maybe all the above =P Too bad Ren didn’t realize yet that how Kyouko views him as ‘Ren’ had already changed that is why she is freaking out over his mention of ‘Kyouko-chan’. Actually, if a little kiss on the cheek and being called her first name are enough to drive Kyouko crazy because of Ren..it makes me wonder what her reaction would be if he kisses her on the lips. ^^;; Apparently, Kyouko is really worried about Corn that she even donated a huge amount of money to pray for his well-being so it isn’t a surprise, like what Ren thought, the reunion had made her not realize that it was him. That is until she had somewhat calmed down. If Ren tells the truth, I think we might have a flashback on what had happened to him as Kuon. Hopefully there is no unnecessary, dragging drama over Ren keeping that identity a secret especially since the pacing of this series is very slow. I’m really hoping that by the time they return to Japan, the two are extra close..and if possible, a couple ^^ With that, I cannot wait to see Shou’s reaction or even Lory’s =P Oh yeah..does his clothes dry fast or he is walking around dripping wet? ^^; Scans by 红莲汉化组
