She starts to wonder if she’s actually scared. She snaps out of it and thinks that if at this time, it is Elena.. Chihiro closes her eyes and hugs him. She thinks, “No. I don’t want to lose to Elena. *kisses Sho* I don’t want to lose.” While she is hugging him tight, she notices that Sho is starting to grope for her chest. This made her shout no, in the end, it is still.. “I’m sorry. I went overboard! I’m sorry!” She closes her eyes and braces herself over what would happen. Nothing is happening so she opens her eyes and sees Sho pulling himself up. This is a shock to her. She quickly sits up and tries to call his name. Sho makes her sit up to him and looks at her. He asks, “So, what do you want to ask?” This surprises her. He repeats that there is something that she wants to ask. She tries to deny it but Sho says that it is obvious that with just one look that she is very strange today. Chihiro glumly becomes quiet for it is about Elena. Sho tells her to just say what she wants to ask because for her to be this uneasy would also start to make him uneasy. Realizing this, she apologizes to him. Thinking that he’s concerned about her, she clenches her fist. Holding up her hand, she exclaims, “Okay. Then, I’m going to ask. What did you and Elena talk about today? And also, how did the two of you get acquainted with each other and why did you two break up? After breaking up, did you always have no contact with each other? Or, do you still keep in touch through LINE [/internet messaging and call app].” After saying that she’s asking too many questions at once, Sho tells her that he knew Elena through his sister for she is basically her sister’s friend. He came to know her when she came to hang out at their house. Chihiro realizes that’s the reason why she’s older. Scratching his head, Sho says that about the break up, he ought to say that he was the one dumped by Elena because at that time, he’s quite childish. “When we broke up, we didn’t keep in touch nor did I know how to contact her. After a long time, we met again today, and I’m also truly shocked by this. So, I also didn’t contact her through LINE before. We didn’t get to chat much today because Souta came midway and we didn’t get into the personal topic.” Chihiro thinks is that so, good job Souta, so in the end, she’ll buy him that pie.
Bending his head to the side, Sho asks her if she can accept that. She smiles and says yes. But, she is thinking that actually, there is something that she really wants to ask, did he had H[/sex] with Elena but she felt that asking this can be quite intimidating to him. She apologizes to him for asking too much. Then, she starts thinking that she doesn’t want Sho to consider her as a serious girl and like that, he was quite frank and open that she went ahead and ask without any embarrassment. “I actually still have all sorts of things that I want to ask.. all sorts of.. in short, that thing a while ago, it seems that he’s very used to it.. all sorts of.. In..in the end, together with Elena.. he did the lewd stuff.. no, it’s all sorts.. *surprised* Ah, I’m recklessly thinking again!” Sho pinches her cheek and says, “I pinch. Hey, don’t be preoccupied. I pinch. I pinch.” While he pinches both her cheeks, Chihiro asks what he is doing.. Sho laughs and says that in the end, octopus mouth is quite fun. She tells him to stop that. And, he kisses her. Then, he turns around from and says for today, it is up to here, he’ll restrain himself first. He covers his face and groans. He says that just now, he thought that she inviting him because she has that kind of intention and in the end, it’s quite reckless that it make him embarrassed. He peeks on her and she blushes at blushing Sho. She thinks that he’s so cute and can’t she think that way. While they snuggle, Chihiro hopes that she’s the only one whom he has shown that kind of expression. Sho’s cellphone rings. Sho looks surprised. Chihiro asks if he isn’t going to answer it. He says that it is a message from Elena. He tells her that Elena said that she asked his friend in order to know his email. Sho shows the message to Chihiro. Elena’s message is indeed that she got the email address from Sho’s friend and it’s really great that she was able to meet him today, thank you ^_^ Elena ♡♡. Chihiro lets out a smile and says, it’s true. Chihiro thinks that it is rare for Sho not to conceal it and tell her about it. She thinks that she should also pay attention in order for him not to sense her uneasiness. She tells herself that it isn’t Sho’s fault and she obviously knows that, but how come she felt quite uneasy.
Soon, it is the night festival. A committee member calls out as to who hasn’t gotten the flower for the exchange, to go to their respective classroom’s committee member. Standing with the others in the school grounds where there is a bonfire, Chihiro thinks that everyone are giving the flower to the person they like. Looking at her own flower, she wonders what she should do for even if she wanted to give it to Sho, but she felt like apologizing to him [/doing wrong to him] since she’ll be giving it to him with this kind of feeling that she has now. She wonders if she’s thinking too much. Someone calls her name and puts the flower on her left ear. She turns around and sees Sho. Sho smiles and says that it really suits her and she’s very cute. He closes his eyes and leans towards her. This surprises Chihiro that Sho says, “Flower. Mine?” This made Chihiro recall it. Sho asks her to stick to him. She asks where. Then, she puts it on his right ear. He winks and asks if it suits him. This made Chihiro giggle and says it will do. Sho takes out his cellphone so that they can take a selfie picture together but they were interrupted by a phone call. Sho takes off the flower and answers it. Chihiro can hear that it is a girl’s voice and she wonders if it is Elena. After Sho hangs up, he apologizes and says that they continue with the picture taking. She asks him who called. Sho says that it is his sister. Thinking that he’s lying and is it for real, Chihiro asks if isn’t Elena. Then, Chihiro is shock over what she just said. Sho asks if she is still concerned about that and didn’t she say yesterday that she accepts it. “Didn’t I tell you that if you’re uneasy, tell me about it?” Chihiro couldn’t say anything so Sho tells her to say something. Sho frowns and asks if she doesn’t trust him that much. Sho suggests that they go home separately since if they are together, he felt like it would just cause some unnecessary dispute. This surprises Chihiro. She calls out to him but he already left. Chihiro thinks that she couldn’t say it for if she said it, it will definitely be willful and she’ll be hated by him. [<- ah, I think the willful is more like asking Sho not to have anything to do with Elena.] Felt like crying, she knows that it isn’t Sho’s fault, but her’s *cries* since she just kept on thinking about Elena. Soon, glum Chihiro walks out of the train station. She wipes her tears and looks up. She sees the Patisserie Satie and remembers to buy a pie for Souta. She is surprised when someone calls out to her. It is Nanjou who asks if she’s going home right now and it is quite rare for them to meet in this kind of place. When Chihiro turns to face him, Nanjou sees her crying face that he asks her what happened. Blurb: “Nanjou finally moving-!?”
Comment: Anyone who thinks that it isn’t a coincidence, but Nanjou is kind of stalking her, raise your hand. Nanjou doesn’t seem to love her or anything so I’m curious what is he planning/thinking. Is it because she is the fish that got away or he just wants to break up couples? ^^; Well, whatever the reason, Sho might also start to realize why Chihiro feels uneasy even if nothing is happening between him and Elena, and he is being honest with her about everything. Like, how does he feel if Nanjou starts to hang around too close around Chihiro even if she obviously has no feelings for him. Well, in this world, it always look bad if it is a girl for she’ll be like flirty but for a guy, it is called being popular. ^^; As for Elena, she obviously can get in contact with Sho so why did she leave her number to Chihiro. Is it to confuse Chihiro and make her think that ‘I just want to be your friend’ to lower her guard? Aside from jealousy and curious over what else did Sho did with Elena when they were going steady, I think the uneasiness Chihiro is feeling is also somewhat like a gut feel that something is wrong or bad is going to happen..maybe like a woman’s instinct. In such case, should Chihiro immediately nip it from the bud since Elena seems to be out to get Sho back but then, she doesn’t have concrete proof yet. Earlier, Elena has all sorts of excuses like, ah, it is a habit to sit beside him. Since Chihiro is a nice girl, she doesn’t want to doubt Elena’s intention. Sho might indeed think of her as some jealous dominating girlfriend that he couldn’t even be ‘friends’ with an ex-girlfriend. I’m assuming that based on his actions with Elena, he pretty much let down his guard and doesn’t think anything bad as to why Elena seems very happy to see him, clingy on him and eager to keep in touch with him. So how much is okay? Maybe for now, it is okay but would it be too late later on? It is basically how paranoid should one be with one’s lover’s ex who suddenly wanted to get in touch with one’s lover. Aside from this, it doesn’t help that Sho is Chihiro’s first boyfriend so there is a tendency to be overly curious/bothered over how far did he went with Elena. If Chihiro had a boyfriend before or experience, maybe it won’t bother her too much nor would she be that curious. It is understandable that Chihiro doesn’t want to ask too much either since she doesn’t want to be too intruding, I guess. Not sure if it is a Japanese thing or something. There might be those who do not want to be asked such questions like that as if ‘do you really have to know EVERYTHING?’ But, since Sho seems to be open and truthful, I think he would least answer her regarding the sex thing. Anyway, it would probably be better for Chihiro to talk things out with Sho because either way, it will cause a rift between them even if she didn’t tell him her uneasiness. Also, how uneasy it made her feel over what Elena is doing earlier. Nevertheless, even if he was kind of clueless over Elena, I do comment Sho for being honest and willing to talk to Chihiro about it even urge her to do so. He is also quite understanding that Chihiro isn’t ready to go that far and has not did any comparison of her with Elena whatsoever. I think Chihiro also has to overcome her inferiority complex with Elena and accept the fact that Sho won’t be doing some things for the first time with her and possibly, sex. Of course, it isn’t confirmed if he did it or not. The lovey-dovey moments here are nice and too bad they got interrupted twice by Sho’s phone. From the looks of things, it won’t just be his phone that is going to interrupt them. Scans by 深雪汉化组
