Hajimete Datte Ba! Chapter 06
Sixth Step: I'm ready whenever!
It's been a while!
Summer slack, I guess...
You? No way!
At this time?
Are you sure?
What time are you done today?
it might get a bit late.
You can go home without me.
Aw, I broke such a sweat today again.
How about a shower?
I'll pass. // I'm hurrying home.
Lend me a powder sheet.
Let's go eat some crepe at the station.
Coming too, Kana?
Nah, she got her boyfriend to go home with.
Ah, right. (Sorry)
No, well... // Hey...
I wonder if Takagi is still practicing.
I'll take a peek.
Don't go on the grounds.
with the training.
Damn spectators. // Don't you dare to make a ruckus.
Uwa, it's their manager.
I met her before when coming from the pool...
We were hanging out with just the 2nd-years,
but we're going to karaoke now. Are you coming too, Takagi-kun?
Eh, well, I'm...
Ah, don't mind me. They invited you, so go along.
I'll call you later.
When does the training end?
It doesn't end!
What's up with that manager! // Why is she so strict!?
Mhm-- // She suddenly got so strict after we dropped out of the Koushien.
Seems she decided the training's menu with the coach...
Training got extended in the morning and evenings, so we can't walk to school together.
Were you waiting for mejust to tell me that?
It's just // that until now, we have always been together.
don't get to see you, I get lonely...
Same for me.
it feels like having an animal attached to me....
Should I match my way to and from school with yours?
Nah, it's okay. That would be too much.
You better use that time to study.
Well, I got a break once a week, // so we can see each other then.
Eh---- // just once a week?
I'm only complaining... // When did I become so hateful...
I got it! // It's not enough.
On our next break...
wanna come to my room?
Nobody will be around the house at day.
So finally that, huh!!
Wait, wait, I gotta prepare. // Eh, I don't know what to do.
I... I'll try to lead you.
Hey, when it comes down to it and I can't do it after all, // you would be disappointed, right?
I would. (without doubt)
So can we try out for a bit // if I can handle it or not?
A- Are you fine...?
I... I touched them directly...!
They're so... soft...!!
Th- They got harder...!
Does it hurt...?
Or does it feel good...?
She's so damn cute...
S- Seems I can handle more than I thought. // Let's leave the rest for later.
Don't stop me now! // You're leaving me half-dead~~
Even if you say so...
it might not be so scary as I thought...
Being touched by you...
felt really good....
That's good to hear!
But let me tell you, the actual stuff isn't anything like this! // Be prepared.
If you're scaring me so... // we might better put it off...
Aww // That was just a joke!!
I'll be gentle...
Ehehe. Let me think about it.
Next sunday then!
Let's face the tournament next year without slacking off!!
Now to your info,
We'll do a mock game later to decide on the new regulars, so no break for you.
Please be sure to be in top form. Those who do bad will get extra workout. // And don't forget to take care of yourself after every practice.
Though the training time increases, it doesn't mean you can neglect your studies.
I'm always there for any questions or advices.
Hasn't she.. gotten really strict after the Koushien?
I heard she got possessed by the Koushien Demon.
from now on,
our baseball club
forbids any love relationships.
S- So scary.... // She got a heart of steel... She's a dictator.
Even if she's capable and all...
I agree with her.
Baseball is our life after all.
And I'm an upright man!!
Hey, Takagi, what are we going to do? // I got a girlfriend too...
Even if you ask me...
No way... Love is banned.... // You mean we're breaking up?
No, I won't go that far... // But we might not meet so often in public anymore...
I don't want that.
I'm going to complain to the manager!
Eh? Hey, wait.
I'm dating Takagi-kun.
Let me guess, you're // in love with him, right.
That's why you set up that strict rule.
In love with Takagi-kun?
Not in a lifetime.
I'm only thinking about next year's koushien!
For that purpose even love will have to stand back!!
Even I got someone I love,
but I won't confess to him until graduation!!
My life for baseball!!
What are they talking about?
I'm in awe...!!
And then I became friends with her // and told her that I would help her out.
You kidding me....!!
Ah, but it's not like love is banned completely. // You just gotta prioritize baseball.
What's she, my guardian...?
But we better keep it low anyway.
Now that the break is gone...
When will I get to...
Oh c'mon, // I'm ready whenever!
No need for haste!
Sixth Step: Over.
