Yu starts to fall down. Haruto grabs the rope ladder and swings towards Yu’s direction to catch her. Takumi and others tensely watch as the two falls at the corner of the cushion. Flustered Meiko and Kaji calls out to the two. Yu wakes up and says that she is fine.
Then, she notices Haruto beside her. As Yu sits up, unconscious Haruto isn’t moving. Meiko says that if he hit his head, it is better not to move him. Yu nervously says, no..it’s a lie..quickly wake up..Kurosaki-kun.. Meiko looks surprised over Yu’s reaction. Yu is already on the verge of tears when Haruto sits up and says that she’s noisy to death.
Then, he scratches his head. Yu and Takumi look surprised. The others are relieved. Attempting to hug him, Kaji exclaims that it’s great that he’s still alive.. Stopping Kaji from going near him, Haruto asks if Yu isn’t hurt. In relief, Yu steadies herself on the floor.
While Meiko asks if she is alright, Yu says yes. Meiko tearfully hugs Yu and says that it’s great that she isn’t injured. Haruto sighs as he watches the two girls. Teary-eyed Kaji asks if Haruto wants to go to the clinic. The fangirls are raving that how cool Haruto was for he would go and save someone that no ordinary person could do.
They also want to be saved that way once and they’re so envious of that girl. Takumi is in deep thought when his fangirls ask what it is. He snaps out of it and says that he was startled that he couldn’t move. Takumi is surprised when they say that he isn’t suitable for that kind of dangerous thing and he shouldn’t do it.
Takumi casually says that’s right and he’s going back to the classroom. After Takumi left, Haruto climbs up the rope ladder and tells Kaji that they are going to re-do it for a little bit.
Aghast Kaji asks, right now, when he just fell down.. Haruto darkly orders him to climb up. Putting a positive spin to it, Kaji exclaims that it is to toughen up the weak. He calls out to the others to come and help. Aghast Meiko comments that he is ‘immortal’.
Yu comments that Kaji’s way of thinking is too optimistic. Meiko giggles. Yu asks her if they can go out and talk. At the balcony, Meiko asks Yu why she is wearing the mascot outfit again. Yu says that it is because she was asked to publicize. Meiko comments that Yu is clumsy at strange areas, and it is the same with romance..
Yu prostrate down to her and apologizes for always hiding it from her. Meiko says that she knows and no matter what, please remove that mascot head first. After doing as told, Yu says that she’s telling the truth, and even right now, she also..doesn’t really understand..like he saved her just now..but..it is always because he is a devil so she hates him..
Yu confides that she was always bullied during junior high and considering that kind of guy, she obviously should hate him very much..but, when Meiko went to the dorm, she felt unhappy if Haruto kissed Meiko when she obviously said that she’ll support her.
Yu admits that she is really awful but.. Meiko says that it is the same with her. Before, she isn’t good in talking with guys and after falling in love, she thought that she couldn’t do anything except look at him. But thanks to Yu, she was able to have a lot of memories with Haruto and the others.
Meiko admits that she has not yet sorted out her feelings that are somewhat complicated but she still thanks Yu. She sighs and says that if she also has willpower just like Yu’s, she’ll just blindly rush to climb up that kind of rope.. She is surprised to see Yu crying ala waterfalls. Meiko admits that she cannot immediately support her..
Yu shakes her head sideways and says that she’s very happy that Meiko still wants to be her friend.. This made Meiko teary-eyed as she wipes Yu’s tears with her handkerchief. Meiko says but of course, and geez, she is obviously so brave towards guys. Yu tells her that hurts.
Soon, there is an announcement that after school dismissal, everyone are to leave immediately.. Haruto and Kaji go back to their class to find Yu and Meiko still there. Kaji says that everyone go home together. Meiko suggests that they [Kaji and Meiko] leave first. Surprised by that, Kaji apologizes to tell Meiko that he already has a girlfriend.
Surprised Meiko exclaims that isn’t what she meant. Yu calls out to Meiko but Meiko bids her goodbye. Yu blushes and greets her back. Yu felt that there is some nervousness compared before when she talked honestly with Meiko..
After putting his coat on, Haruto holds Yu’s head and asks if she is really not injured. She backs away and says that she wasn’t. Haruto is puzzled but just dismissed it by saying that it is almost curfew time. She asks if he’s in[jured]..
After saying no, he heads out of the room. Going after him, Yu says wait, just now, thanks..but for him, that is acting strong.. Walking downstairs, Haruto says that she’s the one who is acting strong since she let herself move out [the ladder] that way, so she’ll definitely fall, stupid..stupid dog. Yu retorts back that the one who calls someone stupid is stupid. Haruto darkly glares at her and says, ha?
Then, he continues to walk downstairs. Aghast Yu thinks that it became like that again..enough already. She calls out to him says that she wants to thank him because thanks to him, she got to talk with Meiko [<- telling her not to run away since it isn’t like her]. She smiles and says, so today, she is really grateful.
Haruto looks surprised and mutters, rebelling, complying, then thanking [him]..really don’t understand her. He gestures with his finger for her to come to him. While there is another ‘leave the school premises’ announcement, Yu goes to him. Haruto suddenly corners her by the window.
Flustered Yu asks what..move away.. Haruto comments that she had regained her vitality, and it is enough for her to solely becomes busy [/frantic] because of him [/his affairs]. Surprised Yu asks what he meant.. Haruto says that a while ago, she was sobbing, ‘quickly wake up, Kurosaki-kun’. This made her blush and say that he heard that.. He holds up her chin and looks at her.
Yu’s heart is beating fast as she thinks that he is going to deliberately give her a detestable kiss.. To Haruto’s surprise, Yu leans close to him and bites his ear lobe. She pushes him away. He says that she unexpectedly dare to bite him. Pointing to him, Yu says that she already won’t let him make her run around in circles again. Then, she quickly runs off. Haruto smiles and thinks that he’ll just intensify [it].
Outside the school, Yu catches her breath as she couldn’t believe that she bit his ear. She wonders what will happen if it is exposed that she likes him.. She imagines Haruto saying that since she likes him, then listen to whatever he says.
Aghast Yu mutters to Meiko that the prospects of this romance is also rather quite difficult [/bad].. At the dorm, Yu comments about Kaji’s good appetite due to his large serving of food. Sparkling Kaji says that it is because he was severely trained by Haruto. Yu thinks that Kaji looks very happy.
After taking a bath, Haruto hears Takumi’s door closing. He calls out to Takumi who just came back and says that it’s quite late, what’s up.. He is surprised to find Takumi’s door locked. Takumi apologizes for not obeying the curfew and he’ll write a reflection paper. Then, he asks if Yu wasn’t injured. Haruto says ya. Takumi says that’s great then, good night. There is a scene of the two guys in deep thought.
There’s one more week before the cultural festival. The fangirls give to Yu the design for Haruto’s costume, the expenses, etc. They urge her to definitely make the outfit well.
Looking at the book, Yu thinks that even if they gave her the basis of the costume, they’ll also make her buy all the accessories [/decorations] for her to do..this side is also quite difficult.. Meiko pats her shoulder and cheers her on. Smiling Meiko looks dark as she tells Yu that everyone are fully anticipating Haruto’s cosplay so she’s not allowed to complain [/vent her frustration]. Yu timidly says okay.
Heading out the classroom, Yu thinks that Meiko is quite forceful.. Then, Kaji, together with Haruto, calls out to Yu and asks if she is also going to buy something. He suggests that they go together since they need to buy more rope.
After Yu and Haruto look at each other, Kaji laments over Tarako leaving early today again so he’s so lonely. While walking with the two, Yu is relieved that Kaji is with them. At the streets, Kaji is puzzled for the store should be near this place. He apologizes for they must have gone the wrong way.
Yu tells him that it is fine and the handicraft store where she is going is also there.. Then, she informs Kaji that the store that Kaji is looking at on his cellphone is wrong. Haruto orders Kaji to quickly find it. Kaji apologizes for not knowing how to read maps. Yu tells Haruto, how about waiting for a while.
Then, Haruto notices Takumi passing by with the women blushing over him. As Kaji learns the right store to go, Yu turns to Haruto to tell him that perhaps, it is at that side so let us go and see-..
To her surprise, Haruto is already quickly walking away. Yu calls out to Kaji that she’ll go get Haruto back. Kaji is busy looking at his cellphone to know which way the store is. At a bookstore, Takumi is looking at a music sheet book at the music sheet section.
Then, Haruto grabs the book from him. He asks Takumi why he is avoiding him. Takumi says that he is so straightforward just like before, and ever since before, he [Haruto] can do anything. After Haruto slightly perks up over that, Takumi continues to say that no matter how hard he tries, Kuro would always..
Yu is wondering why Haruto would go to a bookstore when she sees Haruto with Takumi. Yu smiles and asks if Takumi is also going to buy something. Takumi looks slightly flustered. He grabs the book back from Haruto and seriously says that he temporarily won’t be going back to the dorm so he’ll leave it up to him, vice-dorm head. This surprises Yu.
Comment: It seems that the falling incident has triggered some inferiority complex in Takumi. I guess it is good for him not to stay at the dorm for a while to calm down and re-assess himself in some way. After all, those two are also in the dorm. Haruto might let things be but Yu might not. This time around, I think it won’t be easy to resolve just like what happened between Yu and Meiko.
At least for now, things seem to be back to the usual with Yu and Haruto’s relationship. He taunts her and she fights back. And based on that, it is unlikely for Yu to confess anytime soon since she thinks that she’ll be at the shorter end of the stick in that kind of difficult relationship. Of course, Haruto doesn’t seem to like that either since he is turned on by her ‘fighting back’ antics. ^^; Scans by Draw Club同萌绘汉化
