Sitting by the futon, Nao tells her to hurry and come to him. Karin wonders if the FIRST NIGHT is finally going to happen tonight. She tells him that she’s going to take a shower first. He tells her that they’ll perspire anyway in the end so shower afterwards. Nervous Karin tries to protest but in the end, she sits in front of him when he calls out her name. Nao tells her that they are going to start. Blushing Karin says okay.. To her surprise, Nao rolls over a futon to her and tells her to carry it back to her room. He quickly moves her things into the other room. Karin is in disbelief for it is like there is totally no progress these past three months. She asks him why they are in separate rooms. He tells her that it is because their sleeping time isn’t the same. He says that she also has to change clothes so even if they are married, it would be better to have a bit of private space. Karin exclaims that without that, it is also okay because he is already her husband and he can see his wife’s everything. Nao touches her face and says ya, he plans to do that soon but he wants to slowly build up their relationship. He tells her that they unexpectedly became a married couple and living in the same house, but he still wants to start from the lovers’ stage. Holding the dividing door, he says that it would be better to slowly eliminate the barrier between them. She asks for how long is this slowly. Nao finally admits that if they don’t sleep separately, he has no way of maintaining his rationality and he hopes that she will cooperate. He hugs her and says, “Because I like Karin. Please let me cherish you more.” She happily says okay. She sees a cute jewelry box on the table and asks Nao about it. He tells her that actually, he should have given it to her three months ago. He opens the box and says that it is the wedding rings.
He tells her that it is prepared for the wedding day but at that time, he doesn’t like her so he casually made up a lie to her father so they didn’t exchange rings at that time. Holding up the box, he asks her to please exchange rings with him now. Silence. Nao starts to say that it might be too casual to do it in this kind of apartment so they just do it in some church later on. Karin grabs the box and exclaims that to wear lovers’ ring with him is like a dream. So, they put the ring on each other’s finger. Karin happily holds up the ring and says that he is a bit strange for he has no way of exchanging rings because he doesn’t like her but he was able to properly do the promise [/wedding] kiss that he even tricked her by saying that he’ll only kiss her face. Nao admits that he plans to kiss her on the face but seeing her so nervous and trembling, he couldn’t resist it for he finds her very cute. He holds her hand and says that even right now, by merely putting on a ring made her quite happy-.. They kiss. Look at each other. Then, to her surprise, he kisses her quite deeply. Then, after breaking it up, Nao says that it is as he said, it is dangerous if they don’t quickly separate rooms. At school, fangirls confront Nao and Karin to be honest as to what their relationship is. They always have this knot in their hearts upon seeing the two of them like that during summer vacation. They nervously ask if Karin is his girlfriend. The two wave their right hands and say that it isn’t like that. Looking at each other, Nao says that she is his important family member. The fangirls think that they are relatives. They apologize and quickly back off. They are happy that Nao still belongs to everyone. The couple is wearing their rings on their left hands and were holding their hands from behind. Karin mutters that they are not lovers at all. Nao mutters that they directly jump into that stage. “[We] are a married couple, that kind of important family member.” Blurb from the mangaka: “Thank you for the support. This series will temporarily go on a hiatus. After resting and recharging, I’ll be back, please wait for it.” End of Part One.
Comment: So, things are back to as it was with a bit more lovey-dovey from the couple from here on. Nice touch with the exchange of rings even if it wasn’t at the wedding itself. I actually don’t know what to think of Reika appearing here but boy, she’s really brazen. For now, they are still going to keep their relationship a secret even if I don’t see why they cannot just say about being ‘lovers’ since that is what Nao wanted them to start again from. Is it to protect Karin from the jealous fangirls? But then, isn’t it annoying if the fangirls are all over Nao? Lucky for them, the fangirls aren’t very sharp with love stuff. Anyway, since part one is over, I guess in part two, the next possible problem/s will come from outside. It is not mentioned for how long the mangaka is going to rest so for now, thank you for reading up to this point. ^-^ Scans by all★wink汉化组
