Flashback: Kyouko is talking on the phone. She told Yayoi that the place where she is staying had contacted her today and said that even if they are both busy, but she [Kyouko] also wants to greet her before the day she arrives..
After Yayoi said something, Kyouko instinctively bowed in apology for causing them so much trouble for running away from home. Unfortunately, Kyouko is sitting in front of the table so she ended up hitting her forehead on it. Hearing the loud thud, Yayoi asked what that was. Kyouko said that it is nothing and compared to that, she has time on the 22th of this month so if Yayoi approves of it, then let her go back to apologize to her..
Yayoi said that even if she is happy about that but that is no good. Kyouko becomes gloomy for she thought that Yayoi won’t let her in their house again. Yayoi explained that the one who should apologize should be them for definitely, their son got her involved and furthermore, ran away with her.
Even if they don’t ask in detail, they can come up with that conclusion so even if they were to kneel down to her in acknowledgement of this mistake, Kyouko also doesn’t have to feel guilty. Yayoi said that no matter how she asked that son of hers, he would give a half-hearted reply of ‘not seeing Kyouko anymore and I don’t know where she is’.
Yayoi found that so irresponsible that if she didn’t give that stinky brat a good spanking on the butt then she won’t feel at ease. Kyouko smirked for she really wanted to see that scene with her own eyes wherein Yayoi is giving Shou a good spanking with a futon tataki.
Yayoi is shouting for Shou to prostrate down 100 times and do it quickly but Shou refuses. Kyouko found it amusing to see Shou’s objecting expression. Yayoi admitted to Kyouko that honestly, if they can meet with Kyouko this month, she wants to bring Kyouko back.
Yayoi assumed that it is possible that even if Kyouko wanted to come back but because of many misgivings, she won’t.. Kyouko mentally admitted that when Shou abandoned her, it was like that.. Yayoi said but Saena had asked them to give it up and let Kyouko do what she likes. This surprises Kyouko. Yayoi told Kyouko that Saena said that ‘Kyouko seems to have a dream that she wants to come true and it seems that staying in Tokyo is more convenient.’
Kyouko asked if that is..today..? Yayoi said yes, probably an hour before. Yayoi also said that she heard from Sanae that they saw each other and talked about a lot.. Kyouko admitted that it is so. Yayoi exclaimed for she is currently doing something so they’ll talk again on the 22nd when they will come over to see her. She apologized for being in a bit of a rush.
Kyouko apologized for disturbing her when she’s busy. Kyouko thought that tonight, she merely wanted to ask them when they are free but in the end, she didn’t think that.. Yayoi laughed and said that it is alright. It has been a long time since she heard Kyouko’s voice that is full of energy that it makes her feel very at ease.
Next time, they’ll slowly chat while having some tea for there are so many things that she wants to ask of her. That is to ask in detail about what is Kyouko’s ‘goal that she wants to fulfill’. This made Kyouko gloomy that she wonders if by simply telling Yayoi about her goal would cause her to have a fatal encounter..
She imagines furious Saena asking what she is doing for she is absolutely not allowed to talk of the situation in detail and if she wants to say it, first quit those ‘doesn’t seem like work’ jobs. After hanging up the phone, Kyouko thought about what Yayoi said about wanting to bring her back.
She thought that if it was last year, no matter how much she hated Shou, it is very hard to imagine that she can convince Yayoi to let her continue to stay in Tokyo. It is also hard to imagine that she’ll regard her ‘revenge’ as totally different from her budding feelings for drama. After all, it isn’t really pure that she wants to depend on her acting skill to bewilder Ren.
Recalling Yayoi saying that Shou is irresponsible for saying that he doesn’t know where Kyouko is, Kyouko thinks that even if she doesn’t know since when he has been saying that but could it be that he is always protecting her in some way. Protecting her ‘very difficult to find’ future that is ‘able to put into use’ [her ability?]..
Flashback 2: While playing a console game, young Shou said that even if Kyouko is always a parrot and totally do not have a egoistic stand but after she grows up, didn’t she think of something she wants to do or perhaps what she wants to become.
Kyouko said that she has a dream. Shou asked what is it but Kyouko is hesitant to tell him since she is embarrassed. He insisted that she tell him since she knows about his dream. Kyouko continued to protest so Shou claimed that he felt a bit hurt so they’ll sever ties and don’t talk to him again. This made Kyouko frantic that she admitted that her dream is to become Shou’s bride.
To Kyouko’s shock, Shou scowled and said that he really hates girls who say that kind of boring things. Wants to be the wife of a famous musician in the future = want to have a ‘three meals without worry and can freely have an afternoon nap’ leisurely celebrity life when she is just in grade 5. Shou angrily shouted that she’s really awful for depending on him to support her. End flashback 1 and 2.
We are brought back into the present time with Kyouko’s vicious kick on Shou’s shin. Kyouko thinks that thinking over it, she felt that starting from that time, his attitude gradually become ‘cold/indifferent’ and ‘hurtful’. “You really hate it, right. Hate a person who lost one’s egoistic individuality and having an empty heart.”
Shou asks what is she is suddenly doing.. Kyouko said suddenly doing..that is her line. Taking advantage when one is down and out, not only once but even twice..thus, she won’t be Kyouko if she didn’t give him a kick. She is even so nice to come and visit him to make him feel at ease so at least, he should be thankful.
Shou shouts as if he’ll thank her, big idiot and quickly get off his foot for doesn’t she knows how many times expensive his shoe compared to her dirty sneakers. Kyouko calls him fake young master and tells him to shut up for he is getting in such a bad mood over this kind of shoe when basically, he has no right to become a young master..no, at that time, he basically cannot be called a human so it is right for him to receive a scolding.
Kyouko informs him that his mother seems to be coming to Tokyo on the 22nd. She had talked with Yayoi yesterday and met to talk WITH THAT PERSON. This shocks Shou for that is a huge development and where did that gloomy her at that time get that energy and power from.
Kyouko says that she got Saena and Yayoi’s understanding so she won’t go back to Kyoto until she fulfills her ambition (dream). Kyouko think that if it weren’t for Shou’s continuing lies, there won’t be a her who can say this words.
Recalling Shou telling her not to think too much and just carry out the future she decided on, Kyouko thinks that even if from the start there is a high possibility that it is simply a prank.But actually, perhaps, there is a a high possibility that she want to give a thumbs up and praise him like ‘not bad’ but in the end, she still couldn’t do it upon seeing his face.
Continuing to dig into his shoe, Kyouko thinks that for a young girl’s lips, there’s no deadlines [/to get justice] nor accidents or perhaps any other way of saying it. Shou shouts for her to stop that. She shouts for the fake young master to shut up for it costs around 80,000 at most whereas a young girl’s lips are more expensive. Shou shouts that is a long time ago and do not to lump him together with a junior high for his shoes is 5 times more [expensive]!!
Upon realizing that it cost 400,000, Kyouko immediately retreats for that amount is greater than her own lips. Looking at his shoe, Shou complains that it is now deformed and drooping. A person like her who basically couldn’t become a lead character cannot buy and get her hands on such things.
This made Kyouko scowl. She says that she basically doesn’t want something like a stupid shoe that is stupidly expensive that the stupid him would like. Putting his shoe back on, Shou tells him to quit with the stupid for that is just the barking of a losing dog. Kyouko tells him that from here, afterwards, she’ll fly even higher and her plan has already been decided from here on. It is alright for him to be there leisurely ridiculing her for she’ll immediately surpass him.
Upon seeing her confident smile, Shou also smiles back and says if she can do it then go ahead and show him that she can. Before she can even carry out that next plan, he has already flown in a much higher stage level. To Shou’s irritation, Kyouko ignores his speech by not listening to him and has started to say her thanks to Shouko for obliging her request and bids her goodbye. As Kyouko leaves, Shou gives Kyouko the middle finger and calls her losing dog to remember this. Shouko tells Shou to stop it for that isn’t something one must do to a girl.
Looking at him, Kyouko thinks those are the lines usually used by a losing dog and he’s really an idiotic young master. While Shouko urges Shou to eat the food she brought before it gets cold, she laments over how troublesome Shou becomes as if he is an elementary kid when he’s with Kyouko. They cannot let his fans see that..
Recalling Kyouko’s declaration of not returning to Kyoto until her ambition is fulfilled, Shou smiles. While walking, Kyouko types up a message. Somewhere else, a female interviewer is asking about Chiori’s goal (dream) whether it is something personal or regarding work. Chiori says yes, there are lots but first of all, she wants to consider whatever role she takes up to become a part of her soul, an actress that would train and admire it.
Chiori mentally laments that she failed to get that result with ‘Yumika’. The interviewer raves that is amazing and no wonder she is upcoming eccentric actress for saying things differently. So, if she were to integrate what Chiori said about the ‘Love Me section’, a Love Me member is the one who’ll carry things out to completion with love. It is the so-called, professionalism.
Irked Amamiya thinks that it is totally not that and is she even properly listening to what she said but then, it is too annoying to clarify it so she’ll leave it be. Kyouko has arrived and apologizes for being late.
The interviewer says that she came early so she decided to interview Chiori first. She introduces herself as Ishikawa. While Ishikawa takes a picture of the two Love Me members, Makino and Sudo watch them and said that it seems that a staff member of ‘Are you serious’ introduced Chiori to her [Ishikawa].
It is for some magazine which features strange goods, interesting activities and everything that is strange. The two thinks that Chiori is eccentric and also a Love Me member. It is the same with Kyouko. After a pause, the two find it strange for they don’t feel like they are envious of the two. After the interview, Ishikawa thanks the two Love Me members and apologizes for they must be busy.
She asks if she can take another picture of them after the shooting so that they’ll be in their drama outfits. Later on, Chiori thanks Kyouko for accompanying her during the interview even if she feels that it isn’t an advantageous interview.
Kyouko says that it isn’t really a bad thing since it is related to ‘Are you Serious’. Chiori tells her that she had tactly refused it and her excuse is, she is still a newbie in Love Me section but in the end, the other party got more interested that she even got Kyouko involved in it.
Kyouko tries to be optimistic by saying that it would be profitable if the publicity bring up some effect on their drama which is still in episode 2. Chiori darkly says that she doesn’t think so and it will only suffer losses. Kyouko mentally admits that it is so, so she also wasn’t able to refuse. That is because she doesn’t want ‘Love Me section’ to become famous and because she feels that kind of thing won’t reach that person’s eyes.
There is a scene of furious Saena telling her not to ever mention that Love Me section type of thing. Chiori comments about hearing for the first time about Kyouko’s goal. Embarrassed Kyouko says that she doesn’t want to say such an arrogant declaration in front of her.
Chiori says that if actresses who think that they are famous, she might sneer at them but if it is Kyouko, she feels that she can do it. Flashback to Kyouko saying that her ambition is doing well whatever role given to her and to become the most amazing and strongest top quality actress that will represent Japan.
Kyouko says that even if she doesn’t know about the future right now but she is actually feeling very confident in this next audition that she is preparing to participate in. As Kyouko and Chiori join the cast, Kyouko thinks of Ren. She feels that compared to anyone, she understands ‘Momiya’s feelings and she can perform it well.
All the more she feels that she doesn’t want to give that role to anyone else but-- During lunch break with Hiou, Kanae gets a message that seem to displease her. Hiou asks what it is. Kanae stares at him and calls his name. This made Hiou blush and asks what it is.
Kanae says that there is something she wants to specially ask of him.. She shows him a message from Kyouko asking Kanae’s help to ask Hiou to ask his grandfather to teach her fighting skills in order to increase the gap from the others [in the audition]. During Box’R shooting, Kyouko thinks but she already won’t think of unnecessary things.
Right now, being in this kind of situation, she won’t waste the reality of standing here right now. “I will thoroughly carry out the ambition that I’ve decided on.” After the shooting, the director asks if everyone is already here. Sudo says that Kyouko and Chiori aren’t here yet and it is because that person from the magazine are taking their pictures.
Inside, Chiori calls out to Kyouko in the dressing room and asks if she is already ready. Kyouko apologizes and says that she’s ready. Chiori asks if she is on the phone. Kyouko says that she is only checking her mail. Upon seeing Kyouko’s expression, Chiori smiles and asks if something good happened. Kyouko smiles back and says it seems so. Kanae emailed her that it is okay with Hiou’s gramps.
Comment: Just as Brittany guessed, the one whom Kyouko is on the phone with is Shou’s parent. From their talk, Yayoi seems like Kyouko being overly apologetic and everything. Did Kyouko get it from her? I can almost imagine her keep on bowing like Kyouko does when they meet. Maybe they’ll bump into each other’s heads while bowing simultaneously. ^^;
I wonder if the spanking will really happen. It will be amusing if fans saw that. =P Actually, depending on the body build of Shou’s father, maybe he can pin Shou down while his mother does the spanking. =P Nevertheless, we have to acknowledge the fact that Shou did help Kyouko out a lot from behind the scenes. She was able to pursue her budding interest for acting to the point of being in this position right now.
It might not be related to her revenge on Shou but it is related to Ren. Ah, the evident shift of interior motive. In that childhood scene, even if Shou has a point but I think he totally missed Kyouko’s main point. She wants to be his bride because she loves him and it isn’t about wanting to be a parasite from all his hard work as a celebrity.
It is quite ironic that he would say that when later on, he was the one leeching on her until he became famous. So, now he likes her because aside from all that, she now has an ambition for herself? So, Kyouko is venting some grudge on that kick and stomping of his expensive shoe. I guess telling him about his mother can be said as a warning? =P If only Shou knew where did Kyouko get the energy to pull herself together from the time he last met her =P
Anyway, it seems like a ‘new start’ of challenging each other again on who will be on top. Will Kyouko finally succeed? It has been a year and a few months since the last time she declared that. Nevertheless, Shou is quite pleased with what happened. I guess he’s okay with that as long as a certain self-declared rival isn’t mentioned =P
As for the interview, it might have a reverse effect on what they’ll expect. I’m somewhat confused though as to why they accepted it even if they really think that it isn’t quite advantageous to them. Is it some positive thinking that it will help them because whether good or bad publicity, it is still publicity?
Regarding her role, Kyouko was thinking of Ren then mentioning that she can understand Momoji’s feelings. I’m sure she is thinking of using her ‘unrequited’ love for Ren in acting out the role ^^ Ambition is there, preparation is there, so it is time to become an acclaimed actress in the whole country and make Shou eat his heart out ^^ Scans by 红莲汉化组
