Just came back from an exam and I'm pretty much like a zombie (barely slept, it was hell and I was scared to death before seding those answers *shivers*) so I hope that when I wake up again (a few hours, hpefully), I'll see the light with this chapter.
More updates soon. Depending on a couple of things, I'd be free tomorrow (PLEASE LET ME BE FREEEEEE), so yay!, more time to spend here.
Goodnigh-- eh, cya.
EDIT: Once Again, fromthedephs has provided us a little summary! Thank you very much =) *HUGS*! If you have more info people, fell free to share :D!
EDIT2: SECOND PART ADDED. THNAAAKS!
PS: Tha 5 hours nap were like da best thing in my life. Not that it matter now but whatever! Happy Minchi is Hppay! :D
Ok, I will try to provide a limited summary again (with the hopes that someone better will come by later!)
4th page. Kou chose Narumi. They share a pain that only they can understand. That's why he made that choice. "That means I've lost..."
5th page. After the night festival, Kou hasn't tried to talk to me at all. The way he acts like nothing really happened makes me depressed.
6-7: Over the next two pages, Kou is talking to some classmate about Narumi, like "oh is that her calling?" and "didn't you say she wasn't your girlfriend before?"
Then Futaba freaks out and yells that she's going to the canteen because she's hungry for some bread roll. In her thoughts she's like "I don't want to have to listen to this!" and Yuuri volunteers to go with her while Futaba yells that she's leaving first.
8: Futaba is muttering in her mind about Kou and Touma shows up, "Yoshioka-san." "Oh, Kikuchi-kun, you're eating rolls today too?" Touma responds with something and his friend gets the idea to get things rolling by nudging him into Futaba as he teases her "You sure do eat a lot, huh?!"
11: Touma: "Is there something wrong with that?" and I think Futaba tries to brush it off, then Touma continues "Whenever my sisters are around other people they only eat tiny portions, then come home and eat their fill. The way you always eat however much you want is much more refreshing/straightforward than girls who only eat a little." Futaba: "Oh, haha, thanks!"
10: Yuuri is on to the friend, so she tells Futaba they have to go.
11: I *think* Touma is saying "it looks like that girl hates me" (rt. Yuuri) and his friend is like "Oh sorry, that might be kind of my fault."
11-13: Girl talk. Sorry, maybe I can come back to this.
14: The teacher announces the student reps have to go to a meeting today. Futaba is worried about it since Kou still hasn't talked to her. She goes up to him and says "hey, we have a meeting to get to"
15: "I'll go first then" and she leaves wondering like "what was that?"
16: Futaba is fretting about what just happened with Kou. Touma: "Yoshioka-san, are you the only class rep meeting today?" Yoshioka: "Oh, Kikuchi-kun. Nah, I hope he gets here soon." Phone message from Kou: Sorry, I went home already.
17: Futaba: Did that just happen... he's really trying to avoid me! Did he have to go see Narumi-san? He really is just doing whatever he wants! What are you doing?! Idiot!"
18: Touma: "Yoshioka-san! Good work today." Futaba: "You too, Kikuchi-kun" Touma: "So Mabuchi didn't come in the end" I can't tell what Futaba says, sorry. Mabuchi is conflicted about his good fortune (that Kou is failing) and Futaba's obvious sadness.
19: Yuuri: Kikuchi-kun again! And Kou isn't there? Touma's friend: "Hey, can I talk to you for a minute? Is there something wrong? Touma... he...."
20: "That stuff that happened earlier was all my doing. I'm the one who pushed him. So Touma didn't do anything wrong. That guy Touma is a really good guy. He's honest. He's gentle. He's better than other guys and he's my good friend."
21: "So I hope you don't treat him too harshly. Because that would be wrong. He's a real~~ly good person"
I think Shuuko is saying something like wow, that friend went to that much effort, Kikuchi must be a really good person. Aya: "My Kou is a good person too!" and then more I don't get.
23: Two male classmates are talking about how Kou isn't at school and then they gossip about him and Narumi. Futaba: If Kou really did do something like that, why would I want to be straightforward and talk to him?
24: Futaba: He really just does whatever he wants!
24-27: Tanaka-sensei calls Futaba over and asks her if he can drive her home and she do him a favor. Can she put up these groceries at his house? She asks him "your house?" and he's like "Oh, no, my old house where Kou lives now." I think he says that Kou is sick maybe so he would feel better if he knew Kou had stuff to eat and he gives Futaba the key. She's like "Is it really ok for me to have this?" Haha.
Okay this part gets harder because my language skills are limited. I'm sure I'm missing a lot of nuance so everyone pray for someone else to do this!
28: Futaba is thinking that Kou is probably asleep so she'll just do everything quietly and he'll stay in bed and get to keep avoiding her, difficult person that he is.
29: Futaba comments on all of the healthy things Tanaka-sensei got for Kou. She notices the flowers and thinks she probably needs to put them in a vase. She wonders what to do and thinks it's probably okay to look for a vase in the other room. WAH!
30: Futaba: Is that Kou? That scared me to death. A sick person shouldn't be sleeping on the floor like that. I guess I should nudge him awake... "Kou?"
32: When I see this person, a person this big, a seventeen year old boy, in this room, crying in his sleep...
33: I can't help it, I still love him. It's just... time doesn't stop slowly flowing away. And you can't just forget this kind of sorrow.
35: Yoshioka is like sorry to intrude on you... then she explains about Tanaka-sensei asking her to come over. "Why won't you talk to me? You already don't want to talk to me anymore?"
36: "I also thought it would be really embarrassing to talk to you!" Kou: "I don't want to get you sick"
37: Futaba: "Then it's okay now, right? Let me help you get up to your room to sleep" Kou: "I'm not a little kid. I can go by myself" Futaba: A kid would be way cuter than you!
38: Futaba: "Kou, have you been eating enough? If you don't eat enough, you won't get any better. Sensei gave you lots of medicine and fruit (tn: or something). Should I make you a hot compress? If there's anything you want let me know and I'll do it!" Kou: "Then could you be quiet! My head really hurts." Futaba: "Sorry!" Kou: "yesterday..."
39: Kou: "because of me you had to go the meting alone. Sorry. I was already feeling sick then. Even sending the text message was exhausting."
40: Futaba: So that's the story behind that seemingly careless text message. It's also not that he didn't talk to me because he wanted to ignore me. What.... idiot...
41: Futaba: Well I'm an idiot too. If i'm still this attached and infatuated with a boy who already completely rejected me as his girlfriend. Kou: "You can go home now. I'm just going to sleep in my room. Thanks for bringing everything over."
42: Futaba: In the end, how do you come to gradually accept this kind of failure in love? Kou: Hateful.
43: Futaba: Sure enough, I still can't accept it. Even though Kou's sorrow still hasn't abated. But Narumi-san's existence... could it be that God connected them to gradually ease Kou's pain?
Just thinking that kind of thing won't help Kou take a step forward. If you're at a standstill, you can't move forward.
44: Futaba: You can't keep staying with Narumi anymore, Kou.
45: Futaba: I really want to see that smiling Kou that I saw during summer vacation again.
