By request: Kurosaki kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai [Chapter 22]
Talk: Request by AhnDaniA, and Claudia.]
At a hotel, the receptionist stutters that high school students..cannot.. While being grabbed by Haruto, aghast Yuu says that they won't..then.. Haruto casually says that they are college students. The receptionist says that because the heavy rain isn't stopping all, and they are located in front of the station, they only have one room left, a double room [room for two with one bed]. While others are envious of the two and if only they came earlier, Yuu tells Haruto that she's going back. As Haruto is paying 12,000 for the room, he tells Yuu that they don't know when the trains will run again so does she want to sleep outdoors. Yuu sneezes and thinks that it turns out that he wants to scare her to death. Then, the receptionist tells her that the elevator is at that side. Yuu is surprised for Haruto is quickly walking away. In front of the room, Yuu thinks that they cannot stay together in a room like this. Yuu waves at Haruto and tells him that she'll sleep at the lounge, byebye.
Haruto glares at her and asks if she's an idiot, quickly get in and take a bath. He grabs her arm and pulls her inside the room. Yuu recalls about wanting to do something like a date so that she can properly confirm her feelings but then, in the end, is this way of thinking too naive? Haruto holds her chin up and asks if she wants to take a bath with him and anyway, this isn't the first time. Yuu angrily exclaims how is that possible. In the bathroom, blushing Yuu thinks that he's too awful, that black demon! Then, she sneezes. Looking at the mirror, she thinks that indeed, if she keeps this up, she'll definitely catch a cold so in short, she must first warm herself up. At the dorm, Takumi's phone is ringing. Takumi answers it and tells Haruto that it's already late and it is already way past the curfew. Haruto asks him to help him pass an application for staying out of the dorm because he cannot go back today.
After looking surprised, Takumi asks if Yuu is with him and what would happen if the school found out about this. Haruto says that is why he called him. After looking out the window and sees that it's raining, Takumi says okay but then, his feelings is quite complex for Yuu is obviously his girlfriend. Haruto tells him that they are no longer going steady. After looking surprised again, Takumi laughs and says that it turns out that he already knew. Haruto says that he knew just by looking at them for they are acting very strange at the villa. Takumi realizes that he had been seen through. Haruto says that didn't he told him before, that girl would only listen to him. Unhappy to hear that, Takumi says that it is possible that afterwards, he won't be able to say that. Haruto says that ever since from the start, Takumi likes to compete against him. And, speaking of that when they were young, he cried out loud when Michel [the dog] became close with him [Haruto] first. This made Takumi embarrassed.
Then, he asks about Yuu since he couldn't hear her voice. Haruto says that she's taking a bath. Haruto is surprised when Takumi immediately says that he'll help them in passing the application, good night. Haruto wonders what Takumi is angry about. Takumi throws his cellphone on the bed and says, geez~~obviously Yuu is only being treated as a game, that all, but then, how come he [Takumi] would be so jittery. Yuu has finished taking a bath and wore the yukata provided by the hotel. She is glad for the change of clothes. She tells herself not to be afraid for this is an emergency stay out of the dorm and she doesn't want to stay outdoors. She goes out of the bathroom and wonders where Haruto is. Then, she blushes over the bed. Also wearing a yukata, Haruto says that she's a hindrance [on his way]. Yuu backs away and asks where she went. He tells her that he went to the roof's outdoor bath. He also bought some food [sandwiches, onigiri and bottled drinks] at the first floor for them to eat.
While her stomach is growling, Yuu nervously asks if he is prepared to make her kneel down if she wants to eat. Haruto says that her stomach is noisy to death, just quickly eat. Yuu offers to pay half of the hotel expense but he says that wasn't she short on funds. Yuu says that even if she is..she doesn't want him to spend this much money.. Haruto says that it's nothing, and occasionally, there is some remaining [money for] living expenses. Yuu thinks is that so. Nevertheless, Yuu offers to pay again.. but Haruto stands up from the chair and sits on the bed. He says that there's no need, and with this, the favor during the sports festival is clear. Yuu says okay. Yuu thinks that actually, she doesn't feel that he'll give her problems and on contrary, she made him go with her to the aquarium. She gloomily thinks that it is her fault that things became like this and they shouldn't have gone [to the aquarium]. Haruto tells her to sit down and eat for there's no rule about that. [← she seems to be sitting on the floor] Yuu tells her that it is fine for her to eat here. That is because the sofa is near the bed and she also cannot sit on the bed [where Haruto is sitting].
Then, she wonders to herself what she is worried about. Holding the remote control, Yuu says that she has already finished eating and what television program can they watch. When she opens the TV remote control, the screen shows a couple kissing and groaning. Embarrassed Yuu wonders what's with this movie and she couldn't turn it off. She is startled when Haruto stands behind her and tells her to give it to him. Yuu drops the controller. Haruto asks her why did her face became all red like that. Then, he turns off the television. While denying that her face is red, Yuu says that it is too embarrassing that she's the only one who is rattled. Holding her chin up, Haruto tells her not to be in heat [/sexually excited], and her expression is really amazing. This made her blush even more. She leans on the table and manages to grab her octopus doll. She uses it to push him away and says how come he would always say things quite maliciously. Haruto says that what he said is only the fact, that's all. Yuu says that as a person, he is simply too awful and how come he doesn't learn to be a bit like Takumi!? Haruto throws his jacket on her.
As he climbs on the bed, he tells her to quickly bring his clothes to the clothes dryer. Just when she is telling him that there's no need to throw it on her, Haruto tells her that he'll sleep on the bed, and she'll sleep on the floor. This irks Yuu that she thinks, go to hell, black demon- At the laundry room, Yuu shoves the clothes in the machine and waits. She thinks that being with him for one day, she had confirmed once again, how can she like him → made her watch a movie alone, didn't care if she was all wet during the dolphin show, and told her to sleep on the floor, not the sofa. She laments that the other party is that black demon and he is 1000% not the same with the dream [/ideal] she longed for. When she is with Takumi, it is warm, sweet and happy. She totally cannot say those words about Haruto..
Then, she recalls him hugging her after he rescued her. She blushes really red and thinks, but when she thinks of him, no matter when, her heart hurts..this painful feeling is definitely not love.. Later on, someone taps her shoulder and asks if she is okay, the clothes have already been dried. Yuu is surprised for she had fallen asleep. Standing in front of room 707, Yuu doesn't feel like going inside so in the end, she'll go sleep at the lounge. She tells herself, no, that would be like running away. She tries to open the door but to her shock, it is locked. [← she forgot that it automatically locks and she forgot the key] While ringing the door bell, Yuu thinks that she's an idiot. It is all quiet that she wonders if she is locked outside.
Then, the door opens. Gloomy Haruto says that he's already sleeping and she's so noisy. Yuu is nervous for his mood is really bad and he already slept. As he goes back in, he scolds her to at least take the room card. Noticing that he seems to be in a daze, she thinks that he just got out of bed. Telling herself not to mind it, she tells him that she'll sleep on the sofa over here so give her the quilt. Before she can take the quilt from the bed, Haruto hugs her and falls down on the bed with her. This startles Yuu. Thinking that he's heavy, Yuu tells him to let her go. Haruto holds her down and asks, ..so cold..Michel..? This made Yuu if he's muddled from sleep. Her heart is beating fast and loud. Blushing red, she thinks that for him to touch her, so hot..don't..breathing is labored..this kind of action is too fiendish-
And, it is morning. Haruto wakes up and finds Yuu in his embrace. Looking surprised, he suddenly sits up and asks how come she is on the bed. Without looking at him, Yuu sits up and says that she'll go change her clothes. Haruto is speechless. Inside the bathroom, Yuu thinks that she thought she's dead..it is really bad and she wasn't able to sleep the whole night. Then, she sees her flustered red face on the mirror. At the dorm, Takumi happily welcomes the two back. Putting aside his shoes, Haruto apologizes. With the octopus doll on her face, Yuu apologizes for suddenly staying out of the dorm. Takumi says that it is fine and he helped them with the application. Then, he asks what's up with Yuu. Yuu says that she doesn't have make-up so please let her use this to cover her face. Yuu waves him goodbye while Takumi wonders what's with that octopus?
Then, he calls out to Haruto and gives him the application form for staying out with the reason, 'Went on a trip in search of myself'. Sparkling Haruto says that the dorm caretaker says that this kind of reason is no good. Haruto angrily asks what's up with that reason. Takumi laughs and says that he is the vice-dorm head and as warning, he is to write a three page reflection paper. But then, Yuu is fine, and he had helped conceal that she is with Haruto. “But it is also a fact that you two didn't come back. *handing over the application form to Haruto* Kuro, do you like Yuu-chan?” Holding the form, Haruto asks, ..like? Takumi says that he's asking if he has any romantic feelings towards her. Harturo replies, how can he possibly have [feelings for her]. In her room, Yuu slips down on the floor and cries. “...Sure enough, I like Kurosaki-kun..”
Comment: Nothing happened during the overnight stay but we have a bit of progress because someone is finally aware of her feelings. What will happen next will determine how the series goes. Will Yuu continue to let Haruto treat her like that because she likes him? Or even, be more submissive towards him? There is the possibility of 'start avoiding because I realized my feelings and hope s/he doesn't notice'. Given how she reacted after that 'sleeping together', avoiding him can cause a misunderstanding that he did something to her =P That would be interesting. For now, Haruto had said that he has no feelings for Yuu. So, I guess he's the 'clueless one' here. Takumi seems to be developing feelings for Yuu so that might cause a problem later on between the two. In a way, it must be like when they are kids, trying to get the affection of a dog and probably this time, a girl. Scans by Draw Club同萌绘汉化
