=== ASA CHUN! - CH 04 - The Carrot and the Stick ===

pg 127

TN: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrot_and_stick

pg 128

[] For as long as I could remember, we've always been together.
[] Yukinari's warm hand.
TN: maybe he's talking about how they always held hand. and it literally says "warm palm"

[] I loved it.

pg 129

(Nice and warm~)

SFX: rumble

"" ...... // Mom?
"" Just leave the towel there.

SFX: screech

"" Hotaru-chan...!

pg 130

SFX: grin grin

"" Mind if I join ya in tbe bath?

"" ......
"" A-aaah!!

pg 131

"" Aaaaaah!!

SFX: splash

"" Oh goodness, Hotaru... you

"" You shouldn't be crying like a little kid, right?

"" ... Little kid!? // This... 180cm yukinari is a little kid!?
TN: that's about 5'10"

[] Okabe Yuknari (Freshman) // Height: 181cm

[] I'm Aizawa Hotaru (Sophomore). His childhood best friend.

"" Control yourself, Hotaru.

pg 132

[] Due to an accident to Yukinari-kun's head
(I'm so // hungry...)
SFX: rumble~
[] His mind has become that of a 5 year old child......

[] This all started // 1 year ago.
<> 2-eleven
TN: an obvious spoof on 7-eleven stores

"" Hotaru-san...
"" What is... this?

<> Grilled Pudding // Caramel Flavor

pg 133

"" The morning horoscope on TV said that this is the Taurus' lucky item today. // Yukari, you're a Taurus, right?
(It's you're fortune. // I'm giving it to you.)
<> Yuknari // Before the Accident
SFX: stare
"" ......

SFX: uhm
"" The Taurus was ranked last on today's list so...

"" You already know that I don't like sweets...
"" So giving me it at this point in time is unlucky! // And beacuse we stopped by the convenience store, we're almost late!

pg 134

"" Where's the "I'm sorry"?

"" Sorry Yukinari.

"" Fine! I forgive you.
"" Hotaru-san, you eat the pudding for lunch please.
"" Okay.

"" Okay so, let's run.
[] Yukinari was strict. // But he was just as kind.

"" I loved Yukinari that way.

pg 135

[] Yukinari has hated dogs since he was bitten when he was little.

pg 136

"" ......
"" Thank you.
"" ...... Cu-

"" Cute!

[] Oh yeah!
"" Hey Yukinari // Wanna hold hands and walk like we used to?

<> Childhood
[] I want to // comfort Yukinari.
TN: or give him peace of mind. or have him relax.

pg 137

SFX: smack

"" Please don't touch me in such a friendly way.

"" ......So- // Sorry.

pg 138

[] And... I failed again. // We're not kids anymore. I have to be more careful with what I do.

"" That Yukinari guy, some girl took him up to the roof.
"" He's probably being confessed to right about now.

"" Are you walking home with Yukinari again today? // You two sure are close, huh?
"" Sure...
[] Confession?

"" I've wanted to tell him how I fell so many times.
"" But I could never do it.
"" I'm afraid of destroying the relationship we have now.

pg 139

[] I'm such an idiot...
[] I have no guarantee that Yukinari isn't going to be taken by someone else......

"" ... Hotaru-san?
[] Huh? Where's the girl?
"" Why are you sitting? Are you okay? // Not feeling well?
"" No that's it...

" I guess I'm lacking sleep. Let me sleep for just 5 minutes.
"" ......

[] Yukinari...
[] Whenever he felt overwhelmed he would fall asleep.

pg 140

[] I wonder... if he'll reject my confession?

[] If he said he liked me // I wonder... how he would do it?

<> A
"" Since a while ago
"" I've always liked you Hotaru-san

<> B
"" ... Sorry
"" Hotaru-san, I don't think of you in that way.
"" I'm not sure how I can face you now. Let's go to school separately tomorrow.

pg 141

[] No no no. A is impossible. It's going to be 100% B.
SFX: Ahh!
"" That's because I always make Yukinari angry.

[] Ahh... // I love this angry sleeping face of his too.

[] And we used to take baths together often too.
[] That was crazy... the old me.

[] I like you
[] I love you
[] I love you

[] I love you...

pg 142

"" ......
"" ...Huh?

SFX: surprised

[] ......Shoot!
[] Was I... talking out loud?
"" Hotaru-san...

pg 143

"" Are you saying you like me?
SFX: heartbeat, thud thud

[] "Please don't touch me in such a friendly way."
[] What should I do... he's going to reject me.

[] I won't be able to be by his side anymore.

"" ......I...

pg 144

"" No! That's not it! I wasn't talking about you. Please don't mind me!

"" ......

"" After all this time there's no way

"" that I'd like you......

<> !!

pg 145

"" Hotaru-san...!!

pg 146

[] Because Yukinari covered me when I fell down the stairs // He hit his head was hit pretty hit.

(I wanna go home.)

[] His mind has turned into a 5 year old child's.

"" .....
"" He only has memories up to the age of 5.

"" I can't guarantee when he'll get his memories back. // Also, please have him take a temporary leave from school.

[] It's all my fault.

[] What should I do... // I've completely ruined Yukinari's life...

pg 147

"" I'm sorry. Mama has to return to Los Angeles because of work. // And Dad is going to be in paris for a while.

"" When you're discharged from the hospital, we'll have grandma look after you.

"" ...... // I wanna be with big Hotaru-chan.
"" I'll be waiting for Mama's return as usual!!

[] As I still tried to comprehend that Yukinari has turned into a 5 year old // We took him in at our house.

[] Back to the present.

"" You haven't washed your hair yet // So I'll help you dry shampoo it okay?

"" Okay!

pg 148

"" .....Cu-
"" Waa
<> Cutie!!

SFX: pant
"" This is... a bit rash of me huh?

[] But...
[] It almost seemed like we were close friends again.

[] I was just a bit happy.
SFX: grab

SFX: poke poke
TN: its not really poking, but when you touch something squishy or soft and it makes a sound.

pg 149

"" A- // Ahhhhhhhhh!!

SFX: pant

"" Ooph......

SFX: Aghhhhhh

"" Goodness Hotaru // You made Yukinari-kun cry again!!

"" Just 5 years old... // And he's this perverted and such a crybaby. Isn't he going to turn out spoiled?

pg 150

"" ......

SFX: click

[] To children, the breast have the power to give relief.
[] They may touch it if they feel insecure.

[] ... I guess he's pretty insecure from the // sudden change of environment.
[] Breasts... huh?

pg 151

"" Well now, Mama's going back to work. Be a good boy, okay!
"" Your nanny will be here at 6 o clock.

"" Have a safe trip mom!

[] ... The 16 year old Yukinari hund in there so well. // He must have been lonely, huh...

SFX: grab

"" Kyaa...

pg 152

"" Yu- // Yu-
"" Yukinari......?

"" Hotaru-chan
"" Marry me

[] Huuuuuuh!!
(Yukinari's barely even 16... // 2 more years...)

pg 153

[] ... The Yukinari that wanted to be "grown up" for my sake.
[] To put his life on the line protecting me...
[] The Yukinari who's memories are gone...

[] I wondered if he hates me now.
[] Because I had no confidence in myself // I ended up hurting Yukinari.

"" ...... // Hotaru-chan?

pg 154

"" Every night I pray to God.
"" "I need to hurry and 'grow up'" // "So I can get married with Hotaru-chan"

"" Then it really came true...
"" I was able to "grow up"

"" When I'm... with you Hotaru-chan...
"" I feel like I can do anything.

"" After all this time, there's no way I would like you Yukinari...

pg 155

"" ... I love you too
"" Let's be together forever.

<> These are My
<> True Feelings

[] My heart is a little more grown up than yours, but // I'll be waiting for you.

pg 156

"" You're like a baby // So cute...

SFX: thud

pg 167

SFX: ding dong

"" Brother, Sister
"" Thanks for the food!

"" ...... // This is the first time I've seen such an innocent smile on Yukinari-kun.
(So cuute.)
"" It's really true he's like a 5 year old...
(I thought you didn't like sweets.)

pg 170

"" Do you remember me?

SFX: puzzled

"" Are you an idiot? She said he doesn't remember any of his friends from High School.

"" Your breats are bigger than Hotaru-chan's!

pg 172

[] I wonder if // she likes Yukinari.

[] What's with this...
[] It feels so gloomy.

[] This idiot Yukinari.
[] The 16 year old Yukinari would never have done something like that.

pg 173

[] Let me be the only one you touch.
[] It hurts so much, I can't take it

[] I'm so miserable.
[] I'm the one who couldn't confess to him.

pg 174

"" I'll help out too.

"" Uhm... Hotaru-san

"" I'm sorry for having bigger boobs.
(They're my only weapons.)
SFX: saaaa...

pg 175

"" ......
"" But even this troublesome weapon // doesn't help me get the person I love.

"" The person you love?

"" ... I came here today to // keep an eye on Motohito.
"" So that you and Motohito don't get too close...

pg 176

"" Clo-...

"" I wouldn't get close to him!
"" Oh really? // I won't forgive you if you're lying. <3

[] So Natsumi-chan was this kind of person...
(She hit it right on the spot.)
"" I thought you were going out with Motohito-kun.
"" He's just a friend I've known since middle school.

"" When you're with someone for a long time, the harder and longer it takes for you to confess, huh...
"" I know that he doesn't think of me that way. // And I don't want to destory our current relationship.

"" I don't want to regret it someday. // So I'm going to do my best while he's still close to me.

[] Ah...

pg 177

[] I truly understand your feelings...
[] My heart is always saying "I love him"
[] But to say it with words, one must have complete courage...
