Kyouko, who is suddenly summoned to the hotel by Tezuka, goes to the hotel with maximum nervousness...!?
Last scene: The main character becomes a chocolate girl.
The chapter opens with Kyouko arriving at the hotel, looking extremely nervous with sweat dripping down her face and the paparazzi following her. She recalls Tezuka's voice stating that he made hotel reservations and to come. Tezuka is waiting for her at the front of the hotel with a serious look. He holds out his hand and tells her to come here. As he pulls her in for a hug, the cameras flash all around them. The paparazzi start firing questions to Tezuka asking if tonight is going to be their "X" day. Tezuka glances over at them with a killer look in his eye and they back away in fear. Then, with his arm around Kyouko's shoulders, he bows to them. He says that today will be "X" day and so he is requesting that they please stop chasing Kyouko around. The paparazzi stand there, stunned. Kyouko leans against him also looking stunned. The scene changes to Akae lying on a bed with a woman in the background. He swears and the woman asks him what's wrong. Akae says that Tezuka's acting like a fool and now the paparazzi may start concentrating on Akae again. The woman tells him that she really doesn't mind. Akae thinks to himself that he may have to stop seeing her because it's such a pain when the paparazzi use him for material. He thinks that Tezuka is foolish and he had many ways he could have gotten around this. But he feels that what Tezuka did isn't such a bad thing. He gives a silent cheer to Tezuka and Kyouko.
Kyouko and Tezuka are alone in the hotel room. Kyouko, with her heart thumping, is nervous and embarrassed as she and Tezuka stand apart from each other. Kyouko's heart continues thumping loudly. When Tezuka points and says, "bath", she answers back, "Yes!?" while looking flustered. So Tezuka suggests to her, "Why don't you take a bath?" Kyouko looks back at him blankly, before replying, "a bath...?" In the bathroom, Kyouko fills up the tub with water and seems to be in a daze. Suddenly, she snaps and starts thinking like crazy... this means he's recommending that she get naked... it's impossible... Tezuka is right outside the door in the next room and she can't be naked... but it's "X" day so she's must take off her underwear... crap, today's underwear was three for 980 yen.. oh but, if she gets naked then it doesn't matter about the underwear... that's right, three underwear for 980 yen, get naked, get naked, get naked. *Some footage has been disturbed because of interference. Kyouko stares at the steamy bathwater. One hour passes, Kyouko hasn't moved and the bathwater is no longer hot. The door creaks open and Kyouko suddenly flings off all of her clothes. Tezuka, who's standing in the open doorway, asks her how long she's going to be in the bath. Kyouko throws a plastic container at Tezuka, hitting him in the face and causing him to get a bloody nose. He glares at her and starts to ask what is she doing. She then goes beserk and starts throwing all kinds of things at him. She yells at him not to look, not to come close, and to go away, domestic violence, sexual harrassment guy. Tezuka is able to fend off all the stuff thrown at him and shouts back that she needs to calm down and that since it's the last chapter, she can't just say whatever she wants this late in the story. (T/N: omg, lol). He grabs her wrist. As Kyouko struggles, he tells her that he previously got a good look of her small breasts and whatnot (in Chapter 6) and asks if she has something weird down there which he can immediately return and get a full refund if it hasn't been used within two weeks. She manages to get her foot loose and kicks him in the chest. She then does an upside-down spin and dives toward the tub. Tezuka manages to grab her legs before she lands headfirst in the tub and gets a good look at her lower parts. Kyouko wonders how to salvage this situation.
They both end up in the bathtub. Tezuka, still dressed, is gasping for breath, while Kyouko is face down in the water. Tezuka wipes water from his face and says that if she doesn't like it, she can go home. He also asks her if she understands why he won't tell her that. Kyouko blushes as she stares at the water. She replies back that she understands since they declared that it's "X" day in front of the paparazzi, she will finish the job. Tezuka looks over at her and says that's not it. He reaches over and grabs her arm as Kyouko flinches. He then reaches around with his other arm and pulls her to him, hugging her from behind. He stares at her before starting to kiss her neck. Embarrassed, Kyouko squeezes her eyes shut. Tezuka starts to kiss down her back and when he licks a drop of water from her back, she lets out a small sound. She leans forward and calls out his name as he continues to kiss her back with his hands on her breasts. Then he turns her face towards him so they can kiss. While still kissing her, he stands up and gets out of the tub, carrying her in a princess hold. They stop kissing to look at each other. Tezuka asks her if she knows about the "chocolate man". Kyouko doesn't know who that is. He's kind of suprised that she doesn't know but says that it's something he just heard somewhere. It's the name given to the person who delivers cookies to the crew and actors during filming breaks in Hollywood. Kyouko says that it's the first time she's heard of that. Tezuka wonders if it's only in Hollywood where someone like that who doesn't really matter could have a paying job. He says that it won't trouble the industry if that person exists or not, which is the same as Kyouko. Stunned, Kyouko looks sad with tears in her eyes. Tezuka closes his eyes with a small smile and then tells her that the only one who would be troubled is him. He says that her cookies would taste bad and have a distorted shape, but they would fill him up because in this industry, no, anywhere he goes, he has her. She is his chocolate girl. Because she's with him, he... Tezuka stops in mid-sentence and looks at Kyouko who's staring at him. Blushing but with a determined look, he carries her quickly to the bed. Kyouko wonders what he was going to say before he stopped, but Tezuka doesn't answer.
He tosses her onto the bed. Kyouko tries again to ask what he was going to say, but he cuts her off and tells her to be quiet. He pauses and stares at her. Kyouko appears embarrassed and upset as she looks back at him with tears rolling down her face. She tells him that somehow she feels like she's melting slowly and wonders if this is what a chocolate girl is. Chagrined, Tezuka looks down and wonders who told her to say clever things. With a serious look, he starts to pull down her towel and kiss her body. He tells her that it's okay to melt because he will eat her all up. (T/N: Kyaaaa!) Kyouko thinks that all the places he touches feel like they are melting. She is a chocolate cookie that Tezuka is eating up. It's a little awkward but she wants to be eaten more by Tezuka . She wants to show him more expressions that only a "chocolate girl" can do. She will deliver cookies only to the person she loves. Just to Tezuka.
The scene changes to a studio location. Kyouko receives a text from Tezuka telling her that tonight is nabe and to come over. Kyouko smiles softly as she reads the text. Akae pops up behind her and reads the message, commenting that it's so nice to have nabe and that she can go ahead and leave. Kyouko looks disgruntled and tells him to stop joking. She lectures him about going out at night to play again and says that she will take him home and lock the door from the outside. Akae apologizes and asks her to stop. He mentions that Tezuka seems to be working hard with a movie that's turned into drama series and a stage performance. Although, comparatively speaking, he's still clumsy at bed scenes. Akae wonders if their practice is bad. Kyouko looks back at him, embarrassed. Suddenly Tezuka appears and says that he hasn't had any "NG" with Kyouko, so what's it to you. He grabs Kyouko and holds her against him as Akae and the crew stare at him in shock and embarrassment. As they walk together, Kyouko tells him that she will definitely make it to his Osaka peformance. Tezuka says, "Okay" and then asks if kimichi nabe is fine. She replies back that it is and that she will also go to the opening day of his movie. He responds back with another okay and then asks if she wants noodles or rice with the nabe. Kyouko says that she wants rice. She tells him she's looking forward to it and he happily smiles back at her. Kyouko thinks that when she first met the actor, "Tezuka Riku", she wanted to see him on the TV, movie screen, and up close. She didn't want to miss out on any changes in his expressions, no matter how trivial. She will surely become a fan. She will fall more in love.
