Sugar*Soldier [Chapter 41]

At Togetsukyou bridge, the couple watches the night view of Kyoto. Makoto says that everyone went to Yasaka shrine. Iriya says that even if there seems to be some lights activity [<- festival?] but it is only on December 3. She says is that so. She is glad that right now it is June for her eyes are clearly swollen so right now, it is probably far from good but thankfully, it is quite dark that he won’t be able to see them clearly. She’s quite embarrassed by it. She finds the wind blowing quite comfortable that she hopes the swelling would decrease. Then, Iriya asks her what is the reason that she has been avoiding him lately. While Makoto looks aghast, he says that just now she contacted him, could it be about this issue? While sweating profusely, Makoto nervously tells him that her sister, she careless saw that..her sister and Shouki in an intimate scene. There is chibi Shouki shouting for her to please don’t recall that, how embarrassing. Chibi Rika asks if he is a girl.
Makoto continues to say that she couldn’t stop herself from thinking..of them [her and Iriya] in the future, suddenly becoming boy-girlfriend felt more real and then, she suddenly felt very afraid.. After a pause, Iriya bends down on the floor and says..what..because of that..it really frightened him to death. Makoto kept on apologizing for it. This made Iriya smile and mutters..no..it isn’t ‘that thing’ huh. Makoto is puzzled but Iriya says that it is okay, because he absolutely won’t do anything that will make her scared. Stretching his arms, Iriya felt relaxed over this. He tells her that they go back to the inn for it is starting to get cold. Makoto grabs his arm and says, wait, about that, even if from the start she is very afraid but it isn’t the same with Iriya. “It is okay if it is Iriya-kun.. *blush* As long as it is only you, Iriya-kun.” Iriya touches her face. Thinking that he’s going to kiss her, she closes her eyes. Iriya whispers to her if she can open her mouth a bit. Surprised Makoto is then given a deep kiss. Then, he gives her another one.
Makoto thinks that except for Iriya’s voice and her own heartbeat, she didn’t hear anything else. “I like Iriya-kun. I like Iriya-kun the most. Obviously in my heart, I already thought of this, a hundred and thousand times.” After the kiss, Iriya asks if she is okay. Blushing Makoto says yes, she thought that she’ll be eaten. This made Iriya speechless that he mutters that she is already beyond saving. Makoto asks if she said something strange again. He says that being naturally stupid can be very scary yet it gives a moe feeling. While Makoto is still puzzled, Iriya says that they go back. Makoto thinks that compared today, tomorrow, and so forth, it seems like there is no boundary towards forever. From today on, she will like him even more. Back at the inn, they find Uki beating up Aida. Uki says that she felt that he is acting a bit strange at the corridor so she forced him to confess and she already ruthlessly gave him a lesson. Iriya thinks that Uki did a beautiful job.
Uki angrily says this guy said that currently at the male’s bath, they are spreading this ‘let’s show off up to what extent one can do things with a girl’ topic so he wanted to be a bit cool. Nanami darkly kept muttering that he’s awful. Beaten up Aida cannot hardly pronounce ‘I’m sorry’ correctly. Uki angrily asks Makoto how she wants to deal with this. Makoto says that it is alright, it doesn’t matter. Uki tries to protest but sparkling Makoto says that it doesn’t matter for her..right now, she feels that she can forgive all living things on earth.. Bunny asks if she’s Bodhisattva. Uki says is that so. She asks Iriya what he did to her. Iriya lamely says nothing (except a kiss). Uki says that since it is like that, what they are going to do with tomorrow’s group activity. While Nanami is still furious about what happened, Uki tells them that no matter how she thinks of it, it cannot be pleasant anymore. Then, Iriya suggests something to her. The next day, Uki happily declares that both groups will be strolling together. Most of them aren’t quite happy over this that they angrily and darkly wonder why it became like this.
They stare at Makoto who thinks that she couldn’t quite endure their stare but today, she doesn’t care about them...she feels like a Bodhisattva. Iriya turns around to Makoto. He winks and flashes a v-sign to her. Walking towards him, Makoto thinks that honestly, in the end, she is very happy to be able to stroll around together with everyone. She thanks Uki and Iriya for it. Then, Uki and Yusa are quarrelling over Uki eating his dango. Then, Nanami is really happy eating her 4th matcha parfait but Uki already gave up. They walk to some other shrine. While Yusa complains about the girls taking too long in shopping, Nanami is telling them where to buy soap which is highly recommended by her grandmother. Uki ask where they are going to next. Nanami says that even if it is okay to go back to the inn but they still have plenty of extra time. Makoto says that they had discarded the itinerary so what are they going to report. Yusa grumbles what’s the problem when they’ll just copy the travel guidebook word-for-word. Iriya says that’s ‘dirty’ [<- cheating].
Someone suggests that they go to Nijo castle since it is nearby and they’ll just ride a public transport. When the traffic signal turn green, they cross the street. As Iriya is telling them that they check the schedule of the public transport, he passes by a long haired woman. After some distance, Iriya looks back at the woman. The woman also stops walking. She slightly turns around towards him before she walks ahead again. Iriya runs back and starts looking around for her. Iriya thinks that even if he only saw her for a moment but it felt like she and that person is totally similar. He remembers his mother asking him if he knew that they say if a rabbit is all alone, it will die but if it is a person, what would happen to him[/her]? Makoto calls out to Iriya and asks him what it is. After a pause, Iriya says that it is nothing, nothing at all. He apologizes and says that they go back. Iriya nervously tells himself that it is absolutely impossible, and he was just mistaken about it.
Comment: Well, Makoto finally told Iriya the reason. It seems that Iriya is thinking of something else as the reason. Hm..the same with his ex-s who got tired of him being too nice? Anyway, they moved up a higher level with a deep kiss..obviously a French kiss but then, that seems to be the limit that Makoto can tolerate for now. ^^; Yay, Uki did beat that guy up for what he did. That is actually really rare for a girl to beat up a guy in a shoujo but then, it is the girl’s friend. ^^; Of course, the lead girl is the forgiving type. And it seems that the new arc would be about Iriya’s mother? Hehe, she does kind of look like Rika ^^;; Scans by allwink
