Kurosaki's narration: "It all started when i first knew the title of this song."
Souichiro: "Do you know? Do you know this song? It's 'Daisy Bell'. It's so nostalgic. I knew Tasuku can sing... it's been a long time since i last heard. What happened? That you are singing... humming... You are singing now... so cute."
Kurosaki: "Huh? Stop joking... what are you taking about? I'm not singing! You irk with alcohol!"
Souichiro: "You often hum when your mood is good and you aren't even aware of it."
Souichiro is drunk and Kurosaki is helping him home.
Souichiro: "However, it's the first time i'm reminded of your father when i hear this song. When Takahiro-san is in good mood, he often hums this song even when he's in front of me. Even though so, he does not know the title of the song. Later, i got to know the title is called 'Daisy Bell'. Speaking of which, it's not know others. Tasuku, when you are acting as BAKA alone, you use 'Daisy' as your hand name, it's taken from the song 'Daisy Bell' right? It reminds you of your father."
Kurosaki: "That's not true. I'm not an idiot, there's not meaning to my hand name. I just use a name from a terrorist conveniently. It's not to remind me of some useless memories."
Souichiro: "You really dislike talking about your 'Baka' past. Is it such a dark history? Daisy?"
Kurosaki: "Of course! It's my shameful past."
Souichiro: "I respected what you did during that time. Not about those crimes but how you are so sure about fighting alone. You might feel the pain even till now and from now onwards, many things might happen and i'm sure you will come to think of 'Daisy' as something important some day."
Kurosaki: "Why do you have such thoughts about 'Daisy'? It's such a nuisance and i don't understand why."
Souichiro: "Really? Why is it so? It's alright for you to forget about it but there is no bid deal about it. You resembles me and that i why i mind."
Kurosaki's narration: "You often say that. In the end, it's like you mentioned. 'Daisy' has become something special to me. Since then, all the way..."
Kurosaki: "Moshi Moshi... Takeda? Have you reached? ....
... Do you know the direction to 'Oanabatake'? I'm on my way there..."
Takeda: "I've seen the map and make my way to somewhere near by....Oh! I think i will be alright. I see Teru in front. I'm going to call her.
Kurosaki: "Eh? Teru? Wait a minute! Becareful of Teru! She's now... "
Takeda calls out to Teru from behind and Teru returns him with a punch in his face and she shouts: "DIE AKIRA!!"
Kurosaki reaches but too late, Takeda has already been punched by Teru.
Kurosaki: "See... I told you! That's not Akira... apologized now."
Master: "I've explained that Teru is still concerned that Akira might attack her but that is a little over board isn't it?"
Kurosaki: "It's Riko who taught her those self defense skills."
Kurosaki hands Master Teru's mobile: "I've spoken to Teru... I'm depending on you for this. Please check this mobile using the company's strength to check if there is any device or data being hidden in the phone. Since the beginning, Akira, Mori and Chiharu have been eyeing on this mobile. Just in case they found something in the phone, they might be able to accomplish their mission. I'm concerned that Akira had his hand on the mobile once and i've afraid the might have hidden some device in it."
Master: "I can do the check, no problem. Teru-chan, is it fine?
Teru: "It's fine, i've back up the contacts and mails. I've left mails from 'Daisy' behind. Please read it if you need it for any reference."
Kurosaki: "I've told you to delete them didn't i? Delete them now!"
Master: "That is not what i meant... Is it really fine? I'll be doing a serious check and i might have to break this phone apart to the extend that this phone cannot be retrieve anymore. There are mails from Daisy in the mobile and on top of that... this is the only item Souichiro, your brother who had past away, left you with."
Teru: "It's alright if you are talking about my feelings. I think it is important to be prepared for what is going to happen. I'll tell m brother this when we go visit him. It is impossible for my brother to leave me a item that will endanger my life but i'm curious why Akira is eyeing on the mobile. I think it's important to clearly know my brother's motive and this is not the only thing my brother left me with...."
Riko and Andou came in.
Teru: "Riko-san and Manger!
Riko: "Sorry, we are late."
Kurosaki: "Since everyone is here, we can make a move already."
Master: "Go to the back of the store to ensure that it's close."
Teru: "Thank you everyone for coming today even though i gather everyone pretty last minute."
Andou: "It's alright. Let's go!"
Kurosaki's narration: "That day, we gathered because Teru said 'Let's visit Souichiro's grave together.' and we fulfilled her wish. This is what Teru said 'Mobile is not the only my brother left me with. There are many other things that cannot be replaced. For example: everyone who had gathered here, who are kind and dependable....
... for looking out for me all the time and Daisy who cannot be replaced. This is what me as Souichiro's sister has to say. There is not flattering in my words but you are the best things my brother left me with."
Teru: "Ne... Kurosaki... can you come and help me?
... It's impossible for me to make it in time all by myself. Kurosaki... can you come..." Teru stops seeing Kurosaki helping her with cooking and she smiles to herself. Kurosaki blushes seeing her smile.
Teru: "Wow! The onions seems to be cooking well. You seems to be able to cook really well."
Kurosaki: "Why did you come over suddenly? You scared me."
Teru: "Are you done with your share of cooking? Can you help me to prepare other food as well?"
Kurosaki: "Ok but are you sure you want to go with all these?" which shows a long list of menu and everyone is in charge of different dishes.
Teru: "Yup! We will go with these today! These are all my brother's favourite food!"
Kurosaki: "I can understand about curry. It's most people's favourite food. Siew Mai... it's one of your signature dish but potato salad?
Teru: "Yup! Souichiro will be very happen when there's potato salad for dinner. For tonight, we will replace rice with potato salad."
Kurosaki recalls having lunch with Souichiro: "He dislike it right? He's been giving it to me whenever there's potato salad in his lunch box."
Teru: "Kurosaki, you like potato salad don't you? That is why my brother is letting you have them."
Kurosaki: "I see.... I've been wondering for a long time... it's delicious when there's ham in it."
Teru: "You like that too?" and she talks about how Kurosaki likes his food to be is similar to Souichiro.
Teru: "Kurosaki has many similarities as my brother. I'm not just basing it on food."
Kurosaki: "There are many other people who loves potato salad...."
Teru: "It's strange to be talking to Kurosaki about my brother. It's enjoyable."
Kurosaki: "It is."
Teru: "Thank You Kurosaki... and... "
... Kurosaki.. can you hum the song which you have been humming just now?"
Kurosaki: "Are you stupid? I didn't sing any song! I will lodge a complain about you for spoiling my image!"
Teru: "I know the song which you sang. 'Daisy Bell' isn't it? I'm not familiar with this song at first. It's after hearing my brother humming this song that i think that it's such a cute song. I used to hear it often... 6months before my brother died he used to sing this song very often." and Teru goes on and on about the song and his brother.
Teru recalls a conversation with Souichiro.
Teru: "Speaking of which, i've asked my brother why does he sings only this song?"
Souichiro: " This song is taught to me by someone very important to me. This song give me strength to fight till the end."
Teru: "I though what he said was weird. It does not sound like some song which boost one fighting spirit. It's such a cute song."
Kurosaki's thoughts "Someone important... taught me..."
Teru: "Could it be Kurosaki who taught my brother this song? Is there any connection with the name 'Daisy'? Not that there's any relation between the two, i'm just saying what comes to my mind...
... there are times when my brother hums. This is where the both of you resembles. Is there any other areas where the both of you are alike?"
Kurosaki stood up with his face looking down and makes his move.
Teru: "Kurosaki... What happened? Is it...i..."
Kurosaki: "There's nothing. I going to take a look at the hot pot."
Teru: "Are you angry Kurosaki? I'm sorry that i've said things i shouldn't."
Kurosaki: "It's not that. Don't take it to heart."
Kurosaki's narration: "The past has been coming back and forth and it's scary. 'Daisy'... even if it contains kindness, it's still scary. The sins, the past, the kindness... i've been running way from it. Souichiro.... it seems like i've been running away from the ideal that i might be reminded of you. I've wondered if these are your words of hatred towards me. "'Daisy' will remind you of your sins. You must remember your sins and not to forget about them.....
... However, Souichiro.... i never could run away from the memories about you."
Teru: "I'm sorry, Kurosaki. I'm happy to be able to talk to Kurosaki about my brother and i got carried away talking about weird stuff. You must be troubled because i've been saying that you resembles my brother. Please don't be bother my me for thinking that way. That song might not have brought back good memories for Kurosaki... I'm sorry.... Kurosaki's feeling..." and Kurosaki stretches out his hand to pat Teru's head.
Kurosaki: "Don't be bothered by it. You've done nothing wrong. I'm not angry in any way. Really. Don't laugh at me. I just felt like crying after hearing what you said."
Kurosaki: "That song, was often hummed by my father and i too, hummed this same song in front of Souichiro. That was the time when i knew the title of the some is 'Daisy Bell' and knew it had relation with 'Daisy'. I felt detestable then, to dirty my father's important thing with my sins. I hated my hand name 'Daisy' very much. However, you asked if there's any relation with the kind-hearted Daisy just now. You've asked the same question and i felt really happy about it and i was shocked that Souichiro hums this song often too even though he teased me about this song. I don't wish to hear him sing now as he sucks at singing."
Teru calls Kurosaki but he still continues: "Why is he not around anymore? There are many things i wish to tell him and things i wish to do together with him and things i wish to complain to him about...."
Teru: "I beg of you Kurosaki... don't force yourself..."
Kurosaki's narration: "I've changed hasn't i? Souichiro. I can't run away. From the past, the sins, the kindness and the happiness....
.... I believe you've showed me the hard truth. Entrusting me with what's important to you. They are all fulfilled as you had wish.
Riko and Andou came home.
Riko: "We are here and we are coming in.."
Andou: "Is it alright? We didn't even press the bell." and they were shocked to see Kurosaki and Teru hugging!!!!
Teru: "It's alright Kurosaki. I happy that you are crying because of my brother. Thank You Kurosaki."
Kurosaki's narration: "Can i think that you were praising me? I will think of the same way towards your sister. Can i beileve you when you said we are both alike? I hope to become like you. Is there anyone who can tell me that it's not the end when i'm feeling hopeless? I am really grateful that you've save me. It's priceless."
I've churned this chapter out. finally.
I need to say that i'm a working adult with many other commitments like family, bf, friends, shopping, watching dramas and animes, newly start up blog shop, hobbies, studying jlpt-n1... etc...
You can ask me when i will post new chapter summary of a particular manga you've been following however, when i replied with the date, i will most probably keep to it. I don't like to be threaten or told what to do. I hope you understand that i'm doing this for free out of my own leisure time and i can any time stop posting any summaries if i'm unhappy about it.
In fact i almost didn't want to publish this chapter of DD as i'm not very happy with some of the comments... whatever.... i'm hitting the sack. I NEED to work tomorrow.
