They were startled when Keiko groans. This freaks out Himari that she tells Keita to quickly leave together with his quilt. Keita tells her that hurts, don’t push. He goes back to his side and looks at Himari. He whispers good night and goes back to sleep. This made Himari blush. She looks at her mother who turns towards her. Himari mentally apologizes to her mother. The next day, Shigeru tells Himari that he wants to go a certain place before they head home and actually, this is the real reason for the trip. While packing her clothes, Himari wonders what it is. Soon, they are at the cemetery. Himari realizes that they are going to her father’s grave. Shigeru chuckles to Himari if it is a bit unexpected. He tells her that he always wanted to come once with his new family. Shigeru bends down and says, “It has been a long time, Tomoyuki[guesswork from 智幸]. Today, all four of us came to see you. Today, I want to officially tell you that I and my son, will always protect the two people whom you always loved and protected so you can relax. I also hope you will bless our newly established family of four.” He stands up and tells Himari that it is almost time to go back to their [‘our’] home. As the parents plan to buy some souvenirs, Himari holds her cellphone tight and subconsciously think that ‘she doesn’t want their parents to know’ ‘want to be always like this with Keita’..what the heck is she doing. Keita asks Himari what she is always standing like that, lost in thought. He notices Himari’s flustered expression. Keita immediately grabs her hand and asks her just now, what is she thinking?
Comment: So, Keita manages to sneak in a lovey-dovey moment with Himari even if might be short-lived or the last one for a while, since Himari also has to consider Keita’s father aside from her mother to keep and be a ‘happy family’. In a way, it does seem that Keita’s father has been a hindrance to Keita in regards with Himari during this trip. Aside from ruining whatever he planned for the trip, the talk with Himari’s father probably made Himari decide to sacrifice her love for her parents and for them to stay as a family. I’m beginning to wonder if such relationship is really frowned on even if they aren’t really blood related. Will their family be ‘destroyed’ if their relationship is known? At most, in this series, they would have to deal with gossipy neighbors and well, in a way, it might be about Keiko being oblivious to the two’s relationship which would show that she’s a ‘bad mother’-type. But then, their parents only recently married and those two have a ‘connection’ way before. Well, I guess this is to prolong the series in a way to give Ryou a chance. Scans by all★wink汉化组
