Kurosaki, our school's general affairs person has returned to his usual spot, our school's backyard. A lot of things happened but generally, things has returned back to how it was before. Teru is complaining why is she still Kurosaki's subordinate while Kurosaki rebutted that she lost her chance over a game of trump back in the hotel. She only needed to win once but she's really not good with trump.
Kurosaki carried Teru down from the ladder: "Lunch break is over, thank you for your hard work. I'll see you tomorrow and don't worry about the rest of the work."
Teru's thoughts "Things like this, didn't happen previously. Things has generally returned back to how it was before but not everything. For example, the distance between us, even though it might be a little... it is different up until now and i feel safe and secured not worrying that you will disappear again....
.... Above everything all, the only thing that has changed the most is ... "DAISY" from now onwards, i can't send you such mail anymore as there is no longer a need to do so. This is the right thing to do and DAISY, i'm great today." Teru texted DAISY like usual but she did not send the message out. A friend of Teru asked her to go home together.
Scene changes to Riko and Kurosaki chatting. Riko is surprise that Kurosaki adapted very well for his return, she thought he might feel awkward about it.
Kurosaki: "She went to such extend to bring me back, i am in no position to withdraw back and i'm not confused like how i used to be. Staying by Teru, this place, i will live with my "sins". Not only Teru, i need to thank you and everyone else. Souichiro too."
Riko: "Is it really alirght? Like how it used to be? You said 'i want her' and it's for 'that' reason isn't it? Aren't you going to tell her your feelings? You like her don't you?"
Kurosaki: "Yup, i like her. I dream about her and only her when we were apart. I've came to like her even more after we reunited. She seems to be so dazzling that i can't take it anymore. I don't have plan on telling her so soon and it is not because she saved me and i feel that i'm not qualified. For the time being, i need to edit our boundary. Our relationship is not like how it was before...
... Many things have changed and she is confused too. However, it is nothing to feel worry about. Taking thing one step at a time and soon out breathing will coincides. It's a kind a happiness-worry. The feeling of wanting her hasn't changed but the feeling now is important too. It's like looking forward to spring and not getting all impatient. I'm sure 'the time' will come naturally."
Haruka and Teru had a sleep over at Rena's and Teru is sharing the hotel incident with them. Haruka fell asleep and when Rena is turning in, she saw Teru texting and asked if it's for Kurosaki. Teru said it's for DAISY, she is used to sending DAISY a text before she goes to bed and tell him about her day but she does not send the text now.
Rena: "Why don't you send the mail over? Isn't it how it used to be?"
Teru: "But now we already confirm that DAISY is Kurosaki...."
Rena: "It is not that.... it's important to you isn't it? Isn't it strange to keep all the unsent mail? You need to let him know how you feel."
Teru's thoughts "Rena is right. I need to tell him truthfully even though i might feel a little scared."
Teru: "Erm.. Kurosaki... i have something to discuss with you... it's about the mail... DAISY..."
Kurosaki: "About that..."
Teru: "Can i still text you like how it is before? With DAISY? and can you reply like how you used to?"
Kurosaki: "Nope, i'm not going to play DAISY anymore. It might be alright for you but it's tiring for me, do you understand? From now onwards...
Kurosaki turned and looked at Teru and is shocked to see her tearing.
... wait a minute! Why are you crying? Is it because of what i've said?"
Teru: "I'm not crying and i'm going home. It's not play to me. I'm not sending Kurosaki anymore mail. Let go of me."
Teru's thoughts "With Kurosaki by my side, i feel much more bliss that before however, at the same time i feel a tab lonely as well. The kind messages from DAISY and me, replying DAISY's mail.... These will be all gone and i feel very lonely about it."
Teru walks home thinking that she might have over reacted this afternoon and is shocked to see Kurosaki waiting outside her door.
Kurosaki: "Welcome home and you are kind of late today?"
Teru: "I was studying in the library and Riko is not home today... are you waiting for me? And is it about what happened this afternoon?"
Kurosaki: "It's alright, get into the house now. There is nothing to worry about. If you send me a text, i will read it... so send me a mail. Once you get in the house, send me a mail."
Teru: "Why are you telling me all these?"
Kurosaki: "Argh, this is really vexing! That is because, i didn't say that i wouldn't read just now right? It's an order and i will read it." and he walks away. (I love him why he gets angry because he's shy and when he concerned about Teru and doesn't know how to express it in front of her.)
Teru thinking to herself "Did he come here for this?"
Teru receive a mail from "DAISY" but it's content is not from DAISY.
I'm sorry for saying things so casually just now. I'm sorry and hope that you don't misunderstand me. I've not lied about a word when i was being DAISY and exchanging mails with you. When i said "playing DAISY" it is about the tone. I used to so that you will not find out who i am and i hope you understand that i feel embarrassed using that tone now. This is how i write a mail. The words i use are different and i don't use sweet words that pleases you. It's very different from the kind DAISY but...
... this is real. I will be kinder to you. If it is alright, can you send me a mail? I feel bad about making you cry. It might rain tonight, are you going to be alright? I'm worried if you might fall sick and don't study too hard, sleep earlier."
Teru's thoughts "Thank you Kurosaki. It may sound a little different but actually the warmth that i'm feeling hasn't change. Kurosaki is really DAISY."
Kurosaki's phone rings and he picks up frantically. (I love such humor from the magaka. Makes me love Kurosaki even more.)
Teru's thoughts "Kurosaki, are you looking forward to my mail? If it is so, i'm happy. DAISY, thank you. Up until now, from now onwards, thank you for being with me."
Kurosaki reads Teru's mail with his hand on his forehead (i love this scene, can anyone make a colour version of this?):
It is not DAISY, i'm Teru but Kurosaki, i'm Teru.
I'm sorry to have cause you trouble today. I've reflected on my actions and i feel lonely when i think that i can't send you anymore mails. I've very happy to receive you mail and you seems like the great person you have always been...
The next morning, Teru saw Kurosaki at the life and he close the lift door before waiting for her!
Of coursed he's teasing her.
Teru: "Why are you making fun of me early in the morning?"
Kurosaki: "Cause it's fun."
Teru: "What about being nice to me which you mentioned? You have a car and it is fine... (saying that he will not be late but she will)"
Kurosaki: "I know, i know. You should tie your muffler properly. It's cold today." and he tied it for her in the lift. (*sweet*)
Kurosaki's thoughts "The time will come eventually, naturally."
I hope you don't mind that i didn't do a detail translation like i always did. 3 chapters of non stop lovey dovey moments between Kurosaki and Teru. love. Hope you like this chappie as well. ^^
