H is feeling really happy and it's showing all over her face.
K: "Why? What happened?"
H: "Nothing. I'm just feeling happy to be holding my boyfriend's hand and walking home."
K: "Isn't this something very common?"
H: "To me it isn't.:
H: "Everyone thinks that it's naturally for the boyfriend to come pick her up and to receive a ring from the boyfriend. I really envied them very much and that is why i'm feeling really happy now."
K: "H is easy to pleased. What about others?"
K: "Do you have other things you wish to do? I will make all your wish come true."
H is feeling so much bliss that she's actually a little worried.
Back at home, H's mum told H that she has a visitor and she's actually A.
A is here to have a talk with H.
A asked: "I'm wondering is R is going to break up with me. I suppose maybe, because he has come to like H. I might have said it before that we should respect one's decision. No matter how miserable i feel, if R no longer likes me, there's nothing much i can do about it...
... and that is why i will respect R's decision. How should i handle my own feelings. To handle my feelings... how wonderful can it be if one can just throw away one's feelings into the trash bin."
H: "A, are you serious about what you just said? What do you mean by throwing away your feelings? Shouldn't you protect your own feelings?"
A: "Who should protect my love for R?"
The righteous spirit in H burns up and she told A that she's going to support her no matter what happens.
In bed at night, H wonders what she should do for saying those words to A in the day.
H looks at her mobile and it's 1:30am. She wonders if K is asleep already. She wants to call him but is afraid to wake him up. In the end, she decides to call him and let the phone ring 3 times and she will hang it up.
K picks up the phone in his sleep!
H told K about A's visit in the day and that A already knows that R likes herself now. H wonders if she's really so kind to worry about them. However, she still thinks that it's best for the 2 of them (R and A) to be back together.
K: "R is serious about liking H?"
H is shock.
K: "Isn't it kind of sudden for R to have a change of heart? I think he likes H because H likes me now. He's trying to challenge me."
H now wonder if R is like what K said. If that's the case, then R does not really likes H. H thank K for enlightening her and she hangs up the phone.
Now, it's K's turn who can't sleep.
H asked N to help R. N refuses thinking that it's troublesome.
N: "Why are you doing all these? Isn't it R's decision to like you or not?"
H: "R does not like me. There's nothing of this sort."
H said that in a loud voice and R happened to be behind H.
H: "I don't think you like me. You dislike K and that is why. It must be because when i like you, i'm always around you but now i'm not around anymore and you feel lonely. You are the one who ditched me."
R: "That is right....
... you've thought alot about it."
H is feeling trouble.
She thinks to herself: "I'm feeling all the happiness alone now... but this can't be help, he's he one who ditched me. R might still like A normally now... i wanted the 2 of them to get back together is not because of A or anyone else..
... In the end, i just do not want myself to end up as the bad guy."
In class, R see two kids outside and this reminds him of himself and h when they were kids. They were one their way home when H suddenly disappears. R feels worried when he turns around and H is no longer around. The H appeared behind him and scared him.
Kid R: "I thought you are gone?"
Kid H: "You got a shock didn't you?"
A sees R and pick up her courage to go up and talk to him.
A: "What are you looking at?"
R: "Nothing much."
A: "I've received 2 movie tickets yesterday, if it's possible..."
Some one shouted H's name out loud and R turns his head towards that direction.
When he realised that A is still talking to him, he quickly turns back and apologized to her.
A: "Um... it's really nothing."
R: "I see."
H lie on her classroom desk and thinks to herself: There's really nothing i can do. How can i not like the R is used to like so much?"
R: "No matter how i think, i think i like you."
H lift her head up and sees that it's R who said that to her.
R: "I'm sorry."
H: "It's too late. Really, is it true? However i see it, it's impossible for you to like me so suddenly. How much do you rate upon 10?"
R: "It can't be done!"
H: "What then?"
R: "When you are a BAKA."
H: "What? It's all BAKA?"
R: "When you like someone you are honest like a BAKA. Let me see, what more... Everything."
H: "But you chooses A."
R: "Um, i did not want to be the bad guy. I knew how i felt then but i decide to pretend not to know about it. Bye."
H: "Rita! I like K now! Are you going to break up with A? Don't do that! I do not want R to end up alone."
R: "It's alright. I'm going to become H."
R: "I'm going to be true to myself like you. No matter what happened, i will be by your side supporting you. If anyone makes you cry, i'm going to beat the crap out of him. If you have things that you are happy about, i will be here to share your joy with you. I will fly to your side when you are being left alone. When you marry K, i will wish you happiness by playing the violin for you...
... i will work hard to become such a person. bye."
H is in tears shouting out R's name in her heart.
R sees A at the corner. She heard everything R tols H.
A: "Tell me, what do you want to tell me?"
R: "I'm sorry, A. There is someone i like. Thank you for everything up until now."
H is on her way to find K and she wonders if he's club activities had ended and she sees R sitting alone and he seems to be crying.
H is shocked but she chooses to turn away.
