Chapter 144: Discussion
You came to strong on her, Rui!
What if she won't come here anymore now!
My, my. That was Rui's way to cheer her up.
I'm sure she feels a bit better now.
Ah, that was fun.
I haven't done a fast-drinking contest since elementary school.
I was quite surprised seeing Rui-san making that challenge. // I thought she was going to pick a fight with her guests.
Oh please, that was on purpose. // She tried to change my mood by heating things up a bit.
She's a good person.
Thanks to her, I had some real fun after a while again.
I think it's been a while since I saw such an expression on her...
Yuuto sure is cheeky,
but he has my thanks for making Yuki smile again.
It got quite late. You don't need to call your folks?
Eh? It's not THAT late. // Besides I'm always late because of cram school...
What time is it now--
Is it from Tooru...?
Not giving an answer, just because he doesn't accept it, won't get me anywhere...
I won't be scared or run away anymore.
I have made my resolve, so I need to face up to it.
For our both's sake...
Mm... // Mh?
Sorry to interrupt your sleep. // But I just met Mizusawa-sensei and she wants to talk to you about next month's match...
Okay... // Thanks.
You seem to be tired. // Tooru is still acting like always?
Well, we're talking it out...
But there's studying for test and cram school too. // So I can only handle Tooru at night...
You don't really need to try so hard. You'll get sick.
If he doesn't let loose, just turn off your cell.
Giving him the cold shoulder might be easier,
but I don't want to do that...
Just because he was deceived, // it doesn't change what happened between us. // But it's not like Tooru betrayed me either.
It's just... // that if I hadn't run away and talked with him one more time back then, // it might have not become so complicated...
And such I feel responsible and can't be cold. // And after all, Tooru is someone I know since childhood.
I want him to stop being trapped in the past over me
and move forward...
I understand that,
worried about you because of that...
Hey, Yellow Sports in front of the station got a sale today. // Wanna go?
Really? Yeah, let's go!
What about you, Yuki?
Sorry, I still have to drop by the faculty room...
Guess Yuki's night will be stolen again by trying to convince Tooru.
Even though she's already so sleep-derived.
Besides, Tooru is just too selfish.
He should understand that Yuki doesn't have that much free time.
What are you...
I'm waiting for Yuki. What else?
I heard you're in the same tennis club as Yuki.
That means Yuki should be here soon.
I can't let
Yuki suffer any more grief...
Yuki // already left through the back-gate.
I have to talk to you.
Do we really needed to move for that?
People will just look at us if we talk at the school gate.
What I want to talk about is Yuki.
I'll be frank.
She's pretty tired.
So stop pestering her.
I'm just calling her.
Think about her situation for a bit! // She's quite busy, yet she takes time to talk with you.
And you're bombing her every day with calls and mails... // She's totally exhausted. I can't watch it anymore.
And now you're even here to see her...
If she's that tired, she should just get back together with me... [oO He's nuts...]
Why is she so persistent?
Well, she always has been...
He's an idiot!?
No, not like that...
Yuki is set on her feelings. // She already told you.
If you love her, think of her happiness and set her free.
No matter how you think about it, her happiness
lies with me.
While it's true that you can't erase the past, we two can start anew now. // It's not like she's dating anyone right now...
No other choice...
Yeah... She's not dating anyone... // but she's in love with someone.
The one she loves is...
You're not her type.
Well, she doesn't judge by appearance, // but Yuki's type is on older and calm guy.
We had someone like you in our class, but he wasn't on her radar at all.
She said she enjoyed being with me...
The Yuki in Tooru's mind
is still the one from their middle school.
I know everything about Yuki. // I remember all her likes and dislikes even now...
That's why I believe that I'm the only one, who can // accept everything about her and make her happy.
I don't know anything about the old Yuki.
But you also
don't know anything about the Yuki that I know...
Do you have a moment? // Ah, I'll carry that.
I can mange.
Give me half.
Actually, you look pale. Are you okay?
Really..? // Anyway, what do you want...?
Ah, // it might have been meddling on my part, but...
yesterday I talked with Tooru.
When I was on my way home, he...
(Kurosawa collapse in front of Utsumi... Even if Tooru's love is pure, it's gnawing away at Kurosawa---)
