Aoi quickly backs away and covers his right eye. Mego thinks that it is a clearly-seen wound that has already changed color and appears to have been burned. Recalling seeing Aoi’s shoulder scar, she thinks that at that time, isn’t it also the same mark. “Is it a burn injury?” She remembers how he reacted when she saw that scar on his shoulder. After he and other delinquents look surprised over this, the leader asks if they have seen that. “What’s up with that scar? Did you see it? Disgusting. He ought to be a freak [/monster]..” Mego calls out to him when she notices Aoi clenching his fist. Aoi looks flustered and sad over it. This made Mego quickly bite the leader’s arm. The leader asks what she is doing. Teary-eyed, Mego shouts for him to apologize, regarding what he just told Aoi a while ago, quickly apologize to him!!
She thinks that she finally understood why Aoi has that kind of mood [/aura], wherein no one can go near him, when she met him. “The reason why he kept himself afar and must maintained a distance from others. He is obviously very kind, yet this is the reason why that eye reflect loneliness and grief [/heart-broken].” The leader tries to shake Mego off. He shouts for her to let go, she’s a hindrance. The angry leader hits Mego and shouts if she didn’t him say to let him go. Aoi sees Mego falling on the floor. Just when the leader is saying that Mego is a stupid girl, Aoi grabs his shoulder and says, “Bastard..!!” The leader looks aghast and scared. And, Aoi punches him hard. Aoi quickly bends down to Mego and asks if she is alright. Then, he suddenly recalls the leader calling him freak and his mother shouting for him not to go near her. Trembling Aoi hesitates to hold Mego’s hand. Mego has wake up and sees Aoi looking away.
Then, she sees him as a young boy..a crying boy. She holds up her hand but the boy is walking away. She tells the boy to wait, where he is going all by himself. “Do not go, Aoi-kun.” Aoi is surprised when Mego holds his hand. She tells him, “I’m always very afraid.. (At that moment, when I chanced upon seeing your lonely side-view face. [<- in spring]) It is as if one day you will go to a faraway place. I’m really very afraid. *recalling Aoi’s reaction when he was called a freak* (At that time, Aoi-kun’s face has shown a sad expression that has been branded on my heart. Until now, he is actually all alone in bearing many ‘difficult to endure’ pain.) I’m sorry. Obviously, I’m always by your side and yet, I didn’t notice your pain [/suffering]. *crying* But do not leave me.”
Holding surprised Aoi, Mego kisses him on the lips and just below his scarred right eye. Holding his hand tight, she thinks, “I’m sorry. Obviously, I know that I must not touch you but I cannot release my hold on this hand. I’ll cause you to have an attack again. Aoi-kun, I’m sorry for making you feel pain but if I let go of this hand right now, I feel that Aoi’s heart will go further away from me. And, he also won’t return to my side again.” Crying Mego tells surprised Aoi, “I’m sorry for touching you for a long time when I obviously know that it is painful to you. But actually, I have no way of letting go of this hand. I’m really sorry that you have such a willful girlfriend. BUT BECAUSE I LIKE YOU, AOI-KUN SO I DO NOT WANT TO LOSE YOU..!!” Mego hugs him tight. And, a chain breaks. Narration: “This is like the black magic casted on the prince has been broken by the princess’ true love kiss.” Mego faints so Aoi holds her to stop her from falling backwards. Looking at his hand, Aoi mutters, “Even if we touched, there is no attack..?” Narration: “The love distance of 30 centimeter radius has now become zero.”
Comment: That’s a major development. ^^ Apparently, the mangaka isn’t going to drag things anymore by letting Mego make the move since Aoi is hesitant and not ready for any confession about his past. Mego pretty much accepted everything about him even his past and real looks, even if he hasn’t told her about what had happened. And, not only with words, she expressed them beautifully with kisses. I knew she’s going to do it on the eye ^^ I guess it is also a girlfriend’s instinct that makes her think that he would get scared and leave her in fear if she knew his past and saw him like that. Obviously, they both have the same kind of fear of losing each other, yet, won’t easily let go of each other. Anyway, since that is cured, though I’m not sure if temporary or permanently, but if it is permanently, I guess they will have lots of lovey-dovey later on. From the blurb for the next chapter of ‘Aoi’s scar being healed by Mego’s kiss, the two will finally--’ Hehe, does that mean..*wink wink* =P Scans by 夜莺工作室
