Keita impatiently asks what she wanted to say. She tearfully says that if he wants, would he want to live together with her. Keita scornfully smiles and says that after doing that kind of thing, she even had the face to say that. He tells her that is a kind of thing that she shouldn’t even be thinking of since she was the one who left the house and abandoned both him and his father. Right now, his father is very happy so please, don’t come and bother them and don’t appear in front of them again. Keita says that he is finished talking so he’s leaving. His mother can only watch him leave. In front of their house, Himari is thanking Ryou for bring her home and they’ll see each other at school tomorrow. Her mother comes out and asks if Himari is home since she heard someone talking outside. She sees Ryou who greets her back. With sparkling eyes, Keiko quickly asks if he is Ryou. She starts talking about how Himari always like him and thanks for liking Himari and she was really moved by today’s cultural festival. Ryou can only say ha..yes. Himari tries to explain things but Keiko apologizes for it being sudden because it hasn’t been a long time since such girly topic is being discussed so she couldn’t help smile over it. Then, she starts talking about the love letter and apron Himari made for him. Snapping out of it, Keiko apologizes for talking at the door and she invites him inside. Ryou declines since it is very late but Keiko insists and that she has a lot of things she wants to ask. Ryou relents and agrees to stay for a while. Inside Himari’s room, the two are feeling awkward. Himari apologizes to him for her mother forced him in and this would make the misunderstanding deeper. Ryou laughs and says that it is alright, he doesn’t mind. Keiko is tense over what to do even if it seems that Keita isn’t home yet but what if he sees this kind of situation. Seeing her uneasiness, Ryou sadly says ya, compared to him, she ought to feel more awkward than him. Then he starts to look around and says that this is the first time for him to be in her room and it turns out to be this kind of feeling. This surprises Himari that she waves her hands and tensely tells him not to look attentively. Ryou laughs and says that she finally back to the usual Himari. This surprises her, and then, she smiles. And, Keita arrives and thinks that today is truly the most awful day. And, he sees a pair of rubber shoes by the door. Holding a tray of drink, Keiko greets him home and informs him that Ryou just brought Himari home and she asked him to come in the house. Keita looks surprised.
Comment: Yes, Keita..the most awful day isn’t over yet. I wonder how he will react to that. Make him step up his act like say, taking up his mother’s offer? That is either to get Himari back or give up if he misunderstands things between her and Ryou. It also depends on his reason for his plans to move out. It seems that because of how excited Keiko is about the love girlie stuff, both Himari and Ryou were unable to forcefully refute it and burst her bubble. It seems that they don’t have the heart to do it. So, the misunderstanding does become deeper until someone clarifies things to her. Actually, Himari couldn’t do it either with Ryou’s friends. ^^; Well, it is probably to ‘save Ryou’s face’ with his friends or if she tells the truth, they might ask why, etc. Ryou’s friends also don’t believe Ryou’s protests not to tease and say things like that. In a way, I think it boils down to they believe what the two are doing rather than what they are saying because they are assuming that the two are just being shy about it. ^^;; Himari obviously wasn’t too aware of the possible consequences if she lets Ryou walk her home right in front of her doorstep. Hehe, it is for this cliffhanger, I guess. At least, I give her credit in decisively turning Ryou down earlier. Scans by all★wink汉化组
