While they walk around, Mairu wonders where Tenyuu is. Mairu thinks that she always felt that after being rejected by Tenyuu, it would be quite terrifying to see him again but just thinking of seeing him, she felt quite happy. Then, Mairu overhears Maehara, standing downstairs, exclaiming about being startled and what he is doing. Mairu wonders whom he is talking with. When Maehara asks, “..could it be that you’re avoiding her?” Mairu looks surprised. Then from the corner, Tenyuu replies, “..yes.” Mairu realizes that it is Tenyuu. Maehara asks Tenyuu why, did something happened sad happened between him and Mairu. Fuyu mutters, “-that guy.. stupid.” He is about to go to them but Mairu stops him by pulling his coat. Mairu is depressed for Tenyuu doesn’t want to see her. Mairu turns around. While pulling Fuyu, she walks away. Outside, while Fuyu calls out to her to wait, Mairu kept on walking and thinking what to do. She finally stops walking when Fuyu shouts for her to stop. While breathing hard, Mairu thinks that within her heart, she obviously knew that things will turn out like this. If she hot-headedly confessed to him, he would avoid her and she would be hated by him. “Obviously, I’m very satisfied just by having him at my side. *wipes her tears with her sleeve* I’m the one who destroyed everything. For me to suddenly confess to him that everything until now has been ruined by me.” Fuyu tells her that if later on, she wants to see Tenyuu, just call him. Mairu looks at Fuyu. Fuyu continues to say, “If you want to find Tenyuu for a heart-to-heart talk, call me. ..from today on, *looks at her* I’ll replace Tenyuu in standing beside you! *Mairu looks surprised* ..that type [of words] I ABSOLUTELY- WON’T SAY IT--!! I don’t want to be Tenyuu’s replacement-! I’m me!! Stop joking around, idi-ot. *Mairu wonders what’s going on* I won’t become someone else’s replacement. I want you to say that ‘I like you because you are Fuyu!’.” Mairu is stunned as she looks at slightly flustered Fuyu. Fuyu says, “..starting here and now, I’m going to make my life’s first confession to you. Listen well. I like you, Mairu. Super- like. Please, choose me!” Back in the church, Maehara lights up his cigarette and asks Tenyuu why. Tenyuu says that perhaps Mairu would be hurt again upon seeing his face after all, up to this time now, Mairu had been hurt so many times until she arrived to this present.. “I don’t want her to experience more pain because of me.” Maehara says that it is impossible for him to keep on avoiding her. Tenyuu looks at Maehara and says, “I’ll disappear. Mairu and I will not see each other again..” Final scene: Mairu looking surprised after Fuyu asked her to choose him. Blurb: “Four more chapters to the finale!!”
Comment: Since I like Fuyu, I’m crossing my fingers that it would be Fuyu. Well, I’ll be happy if it is him but then, he is introduced late in the series, so chances seem slim. With only four chapters to go, there are only three possibilities that I can think of how this will end: 1. Mairu x Fuyu, 2. suddenly, it is Mairu x Tenyuu and 3. Mairu ends up with no one and as I mentioned before, this series could about Mairu’s failed loves and with case of third scenario, she never found the one for her. ^^; Okay, I’m not sure if the readers who were following this series since the first chapter would be happy about ending 3. ^^;; Of course, there is a possibility of ending with one of her ex-es..^^; In this chapter, Fuyu pretty much did really well that is worthy of being a ‘lead guy’. It was a pretty nice confession. ^^ As for Tenyuu, I don’t quite know what he is thinking when it is Mairu who wanted to meet him. Maybe they do need a heart-to-heart chat for him to know that Mairu wants their relationship to be back as it was before. That is more important than being sad about the rejection that she no longer feels hurt but rather happy just to be able to see him again. I guess Tenyuu is being protective of Mairu that she doesn’t want to experience being hurt again upon seeing him that he would even make himself disappear from his life. Well, since the series is ending, this won’t be dragged on and maybe Mairu can move on from here..with Tenyuu, or Fuyu, or all alone. Scans by 夜莺工作室 PS.
