While angrily thinking that all of this is Ren’s fault, Jelly assures Kyouko that it isn’t her fault and she shouldn’t mind this. Squirrel Kyouko is unconvinced because she sounds angry. Jelly changes the topic by asking if she is always alone. Since she couldn’t say that she is with a fairy, Kyouko says, yes, she is. Then, she thinks that actually she really wants to say it. Kyouko is puzzled when Jelly says, is that so, then, that’s good. She informs Kyouko that regarding the itinerary, there is a bit of problem so it is possible that there would be a change of time regarding when she’ll pick her up. She advises Kyouko to eat something a bit since she might be hungry at this time. Kyouko says okay. Jelly apologizes and says that she’ll call her again when she’s going to pick her up. Kyouko says okay. Then, she overhears some Chinese tourists praising the quietness and beauty of the place. Kyouko notices that there are suddenly a lot more people around and it seems that business is brisk at nightfall. She decides to quickly go back and take a shower since she perspired a bit. As she leaves, she wonders where she’ll eat a bit of something. At the restaurant, the waiter notices the clock. He winds the clock to its correct time, 6:30pm. At a reserved room of a beauty parlor, Jelly is glaring at gloomy Ren. He darkly apologizes for this is the ugly black star of the never late king. As Ren sincerely apologizes with no explanation, he realizes that he had messed up because of the time of the sunset since he thought it is 530 but actually at that time, it is already 6. Jelly lets him off but asks isn’t he using his watch as a watch since it is always stopped. She says that Ren told her before that he used it as a bracelet but for him not to carry a watch and just head out with no way of knowing the time. She sighs and says forget it, he has to quickly change to Cain. Just when Ren is asking what happened and mentions her name..Jelly quickly glares that he goes to call her by her nickname. Jelly sighs and asks what he is referring to. Ren timidly says no..he thought that he would be strictly scolded if it is the normal her. She pauses and says forget it, it is inevitable and who made her to sometimes be a girl who lives for love rather than beauty. This puzzles Ren that Jelly tells him that it is nothing, they have to quickly get ready for this is an emergency situation.
Pointing at Ren, Jelly exclaims for him not to be shocked for actually, Kyouko is already in Guam. Ren just says, really? Jelly felt furious that he isn’t shock at all that Ren quickly assures her that he is actually very shocked even if he looks like that. Ren thinks that it took a moment for him to reflect on it because he was with Kyouko a while ago. While sitting down on the chair, Ren tells himself to quickly concentrate for he will be ‘Tsuruga Ren’ next. Jelly says that they’ll meet up with Kyouko then eat dinner together. She complains that it is originally at 8pm and right now, they’ll certainly late by an hour. Holding his hands together, Ren apologizes again. Then, Jelly realizes what she felt is out of place, it is his watch which he always wear on his right hand but today, he put it on his left hand. She says that she always felt it strange before because he is obviously right handed so why is he wearing his watch on the right hand. Ren glances at her and Jelly freezes. She recalls Lory telling her that even if he cannot explain to her the details but for Ren to be able to revert to his original form and stroll around outside. This is already a good development but, Ren himself might not be aware of it. Lory had asked Jelly that when she meets up with Ren later on, to please do not be too angry at him. He apologized for the trouble and asked her this favor. End flashback. Jelly drops the topic by saying that sometimes, there are people like that and it isn’t like a rare situation. Ren slightly smiles and thanks her. Meanwhile, sparkling clean Kyouko is looking at two outfits – cutie dress or ordinary shirt-pants outfit. She plans to wear the dress outside of Japan. She was wearing pants when she went through the immigration with Jelly but she didn’t imagine that she would be eating together with her. She imagines what will happen if she wears the dress. Imagination: Jelly exclaims that Kyouko changed to a dress, so cute~~! And it is totally different from a while ago, ah, could it be that she changed for Ren whom she didn’t see for a long time. She calls for Ren to look at Kyouko. Then, she asks Kyouko if she specially bought that dress for today[’s occasion]. End Imagination.
Kyouko viciously throws away the dress and shouts overruled, that’s an extremely dangerous action and very scary for it will expose everything. She is going to hide her feelings for Ren forever in her heart. She mustn’t allow herself to keep on thinking like this or else, her end won’t simply be just going to hell. While wearing the pants, she thinks that for her not to be able to comply with the vow she made and it is just last month. It turns out that she’s already walking the abnormal path and she doesn’t want to become a more shameless person. Pants is enough!! She looks at the mirror and says look, it’s quite cute. She becomes gloomy for it is simply too ordinary. She decides to let it be. She looks at the mirror again. She blushes and thinks that to be able to see Ren is already enough. Later on, a car parks at the parking area. Jelly goes out of the car and tells Ren to wait for a while since his appearance as Cain is quite eye-catching and it would be troublesome if the hotel security got attracted to him. Jelly call on the cellphone Kyouko that they’ve arrived and she learns that Kyouko is already heading down. Ren looks at his watch and thinks that right now it is alright for he is still not Cain Hell. It has been a long time since he meets up with Kyouko as ‘Tsuruga Ren’ and it is too pitiful that in a while, his inner being would switch into Cain. He holds his watch and thinks, “—Rick.. I know that I’ve snatched away your and her future so I don’t have the right to say these words. Whether or not I can request something from you..” Kyouko meets up with Jelly who leads her to Ren. Blushing and surprised, Kyouko bows and exclaims that it has been a long, long time. Jelly exclaims that ‘been a long time’ is fine so why would she change it awkwardly that way. Flustered Kyouko says that it felt like they haven’t seen each other for a year and she’s too nervous. Ren smiles and says, “..it is truly been a long time, Mogami-san.” Narration: “—Rick, please even if how many times I’ve reincarnated and reborn into this world, absolutely do not forgive me.” Next chapter will be out in Japan on June 20th.
Comment: As expected, Kuon used the flagpole for his disappearing act. Since he mentioned that he is also startled, I guess he wasn’t that sure he could pull it off? ^^; That would have been ‘the end’ if something bad happens =P Oh..fairy Corn’s true identity would have been found out = he got sent to the hospital after it caused a ruckus. For him to switch hands, where he wears the watch, I guess he is going to move on. It is one thing to forgive himself but it seems to be a different thing to be forgiven by Rick since he plans to carry that burden of ruining two people’s lives in the afterlife. I’m not too sure if his reincarnated selves would be too happy about that though. ^^; Because it is like asking to place some curse on them = do not forgive/grudge. Before, I’m assuming that he is asking Kyouko about forgiving Shou is more on if she has forgiven Shou so that she can move on and love someone else. Now, I wonder if it also has something to do with Rick. If Kyouko couldn’t forgive Shou for that, what more for Rick and Tina to forgive what Kuon did..or, unintentionally did. For Kyouko, it is more like a temporary ruining of her life but for the other two, it is permanent. So, maybe that is why Kuon believes that Rick should never forgive him for what he did/caused to happen. And, he’ll just make it up to him in the next-nth life. Even if it would be nice if like Tina or there is some evidence that Rick would forgive him later on, but thinking of it make me wonder how many chapters that would take. ^^; And, it turns out that the new reason as to why Kyouko is intent on hiding her feelings for Ren after confessing it to Lory is because of that vow with Shou about not falling in love with Ren. Shou really knows her well on how she’ll act afterwards so he made her promise that. From Gin, a blog reader here, it seems that can be resolved if Ren confesses who he really is because ‘Tsuruga Ren’ doesn’t exist. When Kyouko mentions that it has been a long time she has seen Ren, it seems like Cain doesn’t count nor do Ren-lookalike Corn. ^^; It confused me for a while as to why she is saying that it has been a long time. For those who love to count, if it is around a month, I assume, for Kyouko, how long has it been for us in the real world since ‘Tsuruga Ren’ last appeared? =P Judging from Kyouko’s reaction now, meeting Ren again is greater than recalling whatever kiss that had happened earlier. Hm..maybe later on when she has calmed down a bit? Ren is too busy thinking about Rick so he might have not thought of the kiss he just stole. If there is no time skip or whatever, we ought to have Ren x Kyouko scenes in the next chapter. Would something happen during dinner? Love Confession? Truth Confession? Maybe while Jelly isn’t around? Am I expecting too much? ^^; Anyway, it turns out that Lory’s request is just to let Ren off for strolling around without the means to contact him. For Ren to walk around as Kuon does seem to be good since he is starting to accept/forgive himself and thanks to Kyouko, there is a breakthrough and again, based on his reactions, it seems that he is ready to move on with his life again which makes me wonder and expect that there would be some development in his relationship with Kyouko.
