She overhears her mother telling Keita to wait as she makes dinner for him. Keita smiles and thanks her. Keiko tells him to go take a bath first. Himari thinks that Keita smiled at her mother. Deciding to go back upstairs, she overhears her mother telling Keita not to overwork himself. This surprises Himari for she didn’t know that Keita is working. She goes to the kitchen to verify this with her mother. Her mother is surprised that she didn’t know for Keita has started working at a gas station a week ago. Back in her room, while sewing, Himari feels that Keita is going far away from her and her feelings for him still won’t stop. Cannot be a family, cannot be siblings because she is always running away. She hears the door closing. She thinks that Keita is in his room. She touches the wall and looks flustered for Keita is on the other room. It is finally the day of the cultural festival. Himari puts in a package in Keita’s shoe locker. Keita is irritated when someone knees his knee from behind. It is glasses guy who asks if he didn’t know that it is cultural festival day. Keita says that it is annoying and it doesn’t matter to him. Glasses guy darkly says that he was the one who did all of his work. Keita apologizes for that. He asks Keita if he got measured or else, he won’t have an outfit. Keita says that it is okay if he doesn’t have one since it is troublesome. He is surprised to see the package in his locker. Glasses guy tells him that he turns out that he has one so quickly wear it. In class, Ryou is verifying things with Himari but she has petrified for it turns out that her outfit for Keita is incomplete for the handicraft club even made neckties and vests. She is aghast for they were telling her that they don’t have enough time but it turns out that they managed to do everything. The girls from the handicraft club flash her a v-sign. While Himari is panicking that she only made an apron for Keita, she overhears the girls squealing over how handsome Keita is. It turns out that Keita looks good even if he is only wearing an apron. Himari is relieved by that. Ryou tells her that it is time for the committee members to assemble. After Himari said that she’s going, a girl calls out to Himari and urges her to quickly look at that thing. She asks Himari if she and Ryou are going steady because they are chosen in the lovers’ election. Himari is surprised by that.
Comment: Himari still suppressing her feelings, and feels guilty over that especially in regards with her mother. Keita is indeed planning to move out. I wonder if Keita is nice to her mother because he is moving out soon. Well things are pretty much at a stable mate and hopefully due to that cliffhanger, something starts moving. I wonder who elected them for that one. It seems to be out of character if it is Ryou since he is the ‘good guy’ type unless the mangaka wants to make him look bad or because he is indirectly helping out those two = make someone jealous enough to take action or he can just watch her be taken away. There is also the possibility that it is Keita’s fangirls..if they can get Himari with Ryou, they can have Keita all to themselves. Scans by all★wink汉化组
