Aku no Hana Chapter 43
Chapter 43: That's your spirit
Earlier I said I don't know why it turned out like this,
but it's not like I'm completely clueless.
When I was human, I avoided contact with other people.
People are arrogant.
In my case, the arrogant shame was a predator. A tiger.
It ruined me, agonized my family and hurt my friend.
In the end my outer appearance changed according to my heartstrings.
Aw, I'm hungry.
Let's go buy some bread.
Huh? Where's Kasuga?
Taking a dump?
Let's go ahead! // If we don't hurry, the cornet will sell out.
No way. For real---
Ah, right, did you hear
You mean that, right? // Snapping at Kouji-kun.
I heard she covered for Kasuga---
Eh, Kasuga? That Kasuga!? // That dim-wit? Why?
No clue. // Anyway, she just snapped.
And told Kouji-kun "You're boring"!
What's up with her?
Who knows. Maybe it didn't go well with Kouji-kun.
Eh, they broke up?
I don't know, but Hiroki said it was a topic.
Eh, then Kouji-kun
is free now!
You twisted girl.
Shall we go?
Eh, for real? Did you hear us?
Uwa, so gloomy.
So disgusting. Scary.
What's going on, Kasuga?
What's your relationship with Tokiwa?
You were at their hideout, right? // Why?
Only chosen people are allowed inside there.
Ah, we were just worried about you!
Is everything alright with Kouji-kun?
I already made up
Ah, okay! Good!
We were worried!
Okay, we're going.
Let's hang out together next time.
Why didn't you pick up your phone
Eh, // ah.
I... I was a bit distracted..
Your eyes are even more apathetic than usual.
How's... the novel going..
That's what I called you for. // It's not going all too well.
It's like when I write it down... // it doesn't turn out as good as I thought...
I'm really sick of my lack of writing skill.
Well, I guess I have no talent.
That's not true!
You'll be fine, really!!
Ah, // Kasuga-kun, say...
My boyfriend, // Kouji
wants to properly apologize to you...
If possible, you could come to the cafe we work at...
He's really sorry about it.
Ah, but if you don't want to
then you don't need to come. // I just passed on the message.
You don't really need to mind it, you know?
I also believe I caused some troubles. // Besides
if I just continue to ran away, // nothing is going to change.
What's up, Aya-chan?
You had a shift today?
Ah, hello. // No, I came as a costumer today.
Ah, sorry for taking off the other day.
Ah, it's fine.
Take your time.
Ehm, a hot white coffee and...
a hot chocolate. Is that all?
Thank you for your order!
Sorry for making you came here. And thanks.
Sorry, Aya. // My break is soon, so wait a bit.
Ah, just order whatever you want.
It's on me.
Then I'll take a brown sugar latte.
Ah, same for me...
Thanks for your order!
Just wait a bit.
I'm a costumer right now...
You want to work today then?
Ahaha // Sorry, Master.
As about before...
I feel bad too for causing troubles...
Nah, that's not true.
Actually, I'm grateful to you, Kasuga-kun.
If not for you,
I would have gotten hated by Aya, not knowing why...
But thanks to it I noticed.
That I was a real idiot..
And that I didn't consider Aya's feelings at all...
That's for sure! // You're always influence by your surroundings.
Always smiling, getting carried away... // and thinking anything goes.
I'll change now.
Actually, I realized how much I love you, Aya.
Any normal couple would have broken up now.
There you go again.
Ahaha // Sorry, really.
Fuh. // I thought about quitting
that job though.
do you think I'm stupid?
You're completely different from last week.
make sure to write the novel to the end.
If you like, I can read what you have so far // and give advice... though it's insolent of me.
But if I can by of any help...
No, it's fine.
It's not at a state to be read.
I want to work hard on my own for now.
Okay. Good luck...
I'm going this way.
It's nothing. Sorry.
