Kedamono Kareshi [Chapter 26]

After Ryou confessed, Himari thinks that if it was the her before, she would definitely be happy and immediately answer, ‘okay’ but right now.. Taking his hand off her, Himari tells him that she is quite startled that he confessed to her but.. She bows and apologizes for right now, she already has someone more important than him so.. Ryou says is that so and is it Keita. Himari shakes her head. Clenching his fist, Ryou says that he is at fault for it is only now he would give his answer to her confession before so he asks her not to mind this thing too much. From the window, Himari sadly looks at Ryou who walks out of the school. She decides that right now, she has a lot of things to do so she should concentrate on the cultural festival. Soon, it is 11:20pm. Himari sits on the sofa and felt quite tired. She lies down on the sofa and thinks that she is really tried after doing things that she isn’t used to. She still has to think of a way in dealing with the girls’ problem about getting Keita’s body measurements. Then, the door opens. Himari sits up and thinks that Keita has just come home at this time. She became nervous and if she stays there, they would definitely encounter each other. Keita is surprised to see flustered Himari. He looks away and starts to walk away. While he is getting something in the refrigerator, Himari thinks that the mood is very heavy which is quite difficult that she wants to run away but then, she also wants to be together with him. She calls out to him about being asked to get his body measurements by their classmates so can he let her do that and it won’t take too long. She braces herself for a negative response but to her surprise, he tells her that it is okay. Holding a measuring tape, Himari tells her that this would be over quick. She thinks that it has been a long time since they are close to each other like this.
While measuring, she glances at him and he is just casually looking away. He grumpily asks if it is over, he’s tired to death. Flustered Himari says that it is finished, thank you. After Keita left, Himari clenches her trembling fist and thinks that she obviously decided on this herself and in the end, she is quite happy just to be able to talk with him. She doesn’t know of a way to put an end to these feelings. Keita stops walking and slightly looks flustered as he looks back. During a basketball game, probably PE class, Ryou calls out to Keita and tells him to control that attitude of his a bit. Keita glares at him and turns away. This irks Ryou that he tells him that he confessed to Himari a while ago. The ball that Keita throws didn’t go in the basket. After picking up the ball, Keita asks and then, what does he want to say. To Keita’s surprise, Ryou says that he was rejected for she said that she already has someone important. Ryou asks if that person is Keita but then, they cannot go steady for Himari treasures her family and they are siblings. Ryou tells him that Keita already doesn’t have any possibilities but he does so he will seriously like Himari. This surprises Keita. Turning away, Ryou tells him that is what’s up, so if Keita can think of[/be considerate to] Himari, then he ought to change that attitude of his, and that’s all what he has to say. Keita calls out to Ryou but this time, Ryou is the one who snubs him. Keita is flustered. After school, Keita and friends are planning to go karaoke today. A girl holds on to him and says that she’s very happy that he can have fun with them lately since it is a bit hard to get along before. Keita didn’t answer. He passes by a store which rents out apartment rooms. After thinking for a while, Keita says that he has something to do so he couldn’t go with them today. Then, he enters the store.
Comment: Surprisingly, Himari rejected Ryou which is good in a way since she isn’t that fickle and well, we won’t be going around in circles with the story that has a very obvious ending. Thinking over Ryou’s intention for telling that to Keita, I guess it is basically he is a ‘good guy’. He could have just let Keita be mean to Himari and make Himari fall for him again, but he didn’t. He might also want to help the two hence making Keita aware of what’s going on. He might also not want to see Himari being hurt like that by Keita and to make Keita do something if he told Keita that he is seriously going to pursue Himari. Anyway, it worked and Keita is seriously thinking of something and currently, it seems that he is planning to move out. Scans by allwink

Word of the day:
God’s timing is perfect in everything. While you are waiting, perhaps wondering why God doesn’t seem to be acting on your behalf, remember that He’s working behind the scenes to prepare His moment of intervention at just the right time. Trust Him. He knows what time it is. ~ Our Daily Bread

  1. First he ignores her, now he wants to move out...I don't know when things will sort out between those two, but I hope It wont take too long >__< Again, thank you very much for this summary, Kat :D I can't wait to read the next one :3

    1. Ya..and his move can be misinterpreted especially since they aren't talking much.

      Thanks for reading, Nemi ^-^

  2. Uggh, I hate when stories head this direction. Wasn't she the one who turned him down? Isn't the onus on her to make the next move since he's been the one chasing her the whole time? Nope, it's still his fault, he just hasn't tried hard enough and needs to do more (sarcasm). Irritating, but typical.

    Thanks for the multiple updates Kat.

    1. I probably should have cooled off before I posted earlier, but I was having a bad morning and this chapter was the final straw. :-)

      Keita moving out doesn't actually fix any of the issues she has with their relationship. 1. They are still step siblings. 2. If it is to avoid any appearance of "misbehavior" stemming from two dating teenagers living under the same roof, well, him having his own place would make it worse wouldn't it? No matter what Keita does, it still comes down to Himari having to make a choice between him or what she assumes is her mothers "happiness". The mangaka is just running around in circles at this point. -RC

    2. Thanks for reading, RC ^-^

      Ya..he might be thinking of 2. Possible..it would make things worse.

      That's right. And, I think Keita is doing this the wrong way.

      Possible..we'll see where this goes.

  3. I am glad that Himari is not that kind of girl who will go out with someone half hearted. Shes an honest girl. That is what I like about her. I am sure that Ryou is glad that she is being honest with him, but he is not happy with the rejection and took it well. Yes, I agree that Ryou is a good guy. He shows that he cares about Himari by confronted Keita. At the end of manga is so obivious that Keita is thinking about moving out, but I hope his actions will not send a wrong sign to Himari's mother because it will definitely hurt her feelings that she may think he doesn't accept her as his step mother which will make Himari upset because she wants her mother to be happy. We will see how it goes in later chapters! btw thanks for the summary! <3 Tika

  4. Keita seems very hot-tempered, irascible, and super childish in his reactions. Which is not surprising since he's a teenager, but it doesn't make him a very good romantic candidate or person in general. He doesn't have many redeeming qualities actually, other than the fact that he's protective (overly so sometimes, so much so that he's possessive).
