Hi guys. The first week of no Reika I spent thinking about the Suiran/Zuiran thing, and went with Zui’ran in the end.

The second week of no Reika was because I was in Melbourne on a business trip.

The third week of no Reika was because Vampyr was out.

But I’m back now. Wew~


Kaburagi was walking on clouds.

Ever since he gave Wakaba-chan those reference books and exercise books, the two of them would discuss difficult questions with each other.

“We’re competing to see how who can get further in the exercise books.”

Hmph.

Who was it that called it “cynical and unromantic”?

“That girl hates to lose, after all,” he said between smug sips of his tea.

“You are working hard together,” I praised.

See? Look at where my perfect advice got you.

By solving the exercise book together, the two of you have even more to talk about.

As expected of me.

“We talk on the phone or message each other about questions that we can’t solve.”

“You have her mail address!?” I asked in shock.

When did that happen!?

“Yeah. There was an accident during the summer, so I’ve had it since then.”

“I see…”

Don’t tell me he did the same thing to her as me, assaulting her with messages every five minutes if she didn’t reply?

That was horrid.

And scary too.

“…Sending too many messages may bother her, so please show some moderation.”

“I know. Even I know restraint,” he declared rather proudly.

I didn’t have much confidence in his idea of restraint though.

“Truly, now? Women despise men who will not give up, you know?”

“Yeah.”

“If she does not reply to your email, you must not pester her, you know?”

“You’re the one who won’t give up! What kind of guy do you think I am!?”

A stalker-in-the-making?

Kaburagi huffed and turned away unhappily, so I decided to leave it at that for today.

This wasn’t over.

I took a sip from my hibiscus tea. The faint tang was delicious.

“…We’ll be going to the library, yeah?” he asked, seemingly over his bout of unhappiness.

“Yes, you did mention something like that.”

“I was thinking of asking her out for a meal this time…”

I think last time he mentioned bringing her out to a French restaurant in Aoyama, didn’t he?

“Please try not to bring her to anywhere too unapproachable.”

“Unapproachable? Like, how unapproachable is unapproachable even?”

“Hmmm. Well, having dinner at a French restaurant certainly qualifies. If you are going for Italian, then go for somewhere informal like a café or a regular restaurant, not one of the expensive ones. I suppose if I had to add to that, go for a restaurant that is well lit.”

“That’s hard. Do I have to follow all those restrictions?”

Exactly what is hard about that?

What kind of restaurants do you usually go to, exactly?

“Last time I went with her to a restaurant, she didn’t seem to mind that much.”

“Eh!? When was this!?”

“During the summer.”

Again!?

“Was it dinner?”

“No, it was lunch that time. We stopped by after coming back from the hospital.”

“I see…”

Right. Back then he was taking her to the hospital every day.

“Where did you take her, incidentally?”

The restaurant that he named was an all-organic hidden French restaurant. That place, huh?

“Yurie liked it.”

“So Yurie-sama liked it…”

Hmm~

“So did you suddenly invite her too, that time?”

“Huh? Yeah. It was just about lunchtime so I suggested getting some food before taking her home. That restaurant allows last minute reservations after all.”

Suddenly his expression looked a bit awkward.

“But it’s not like she was wearing anything weird, alright!? And she said the food was good! And also it might have been French but it was a relatively casual place, okay!” he argued.

I guess he remembered what I said just now.

It sounded like excuses, actually. Also he was being loud.

How was he going to take responsibility if we were overheard?

Shhh!

“Casual, huh…?”

Well, I suppose it would be fine for lunch…

That place wasn’t too fancy after all, and if Wakaba-chan knew she was meeting with Kaburagi then her clothing couldn’t have been too bad either.

“I suppose that is fine then… But I had no idea you were so fond of French. You wanted to bring her to Aoyama for French food as well.”

“Ah, it’s not like I really like it or anything, but Yurie liked it,” he said without an ounce of shame.

This idiot…

“Kaburagi-sama…”

“Huh?”

I slide to the side so that I was right in front of him now.

“Kaburagi-sama, please stop making all of your decisions based on Yurie-sama.”

“Hah?” he replied blankly.

Notice it already…

“Buying presents that Yurie-sama would like, taking her to restaurants that Yurie-sama would like, with cuisine that Yurie-sama would like. Everything you have done has been with Yurie-sama as a basis, with the assumption that if Yurie-sama would like it, Takamichi-san would as well.

“But the girl you like is supposed to be Takamichi-san, is it not? Then should you not be thinking about what kind of presents would make her happy, and what kind of food she might want to try?”

“That’s…”

“Yurie-sama might indeed be fine about being suddenly taken to a fancy French dinner, and certainly her clothing would not be out of place. I can understand why you might not have thought too deeply about it because of that.

“But Takamichi-san is not Yurie-sama. An expensive French restaurant is not somewhere that a normal high school girl often goes to,” I said, before looking at him straight in the eyes. “Who are you really looking at?”

Kaburagi’s eyes went wide.

…I mean, I didn’t entirely blame him.

Yurie-sama had been by his side since he could remember, and given his long crush on her it was natural that she had left a deep impression on him.

It didn’t help that he kept every other girl at arms length, either…

Still, it was just weird that he was using somebody else as the basis for his decisions with Wakaba-chan.

I was starting to feel sorry for her.

I looked back at Kaburagi, still silent and hanging his head.

Oh, was that too much of a shock?

Was he feeling depressed now?

Oh dear, maybe I went too far…

What now?

And wow, Kaburagi was surprisingly sensitive to these things.

“Ah, ummm… But at least you meant well, right? Mmn, I could tell.”

“…”

“Oh! I know! That maple syrup was a great choice, right?” I said hastily. “And that teddybear was a good idea too. I approve.”

His only response to my consolation was to mutter something quietly.

“Pardon? What was that?”

“…The maple syrup was Shuusuke’s idea, and the teddybear… was something that I picked because Yurie liked them…”

“Uwaahh…”

Far from consoling him, I just rubbed salt in the wound…

Oh geez, his head was hanging even lower now~

I know!

At times like this, what he really needed was somebody who understood him better than anyone else!

Now where was that best friend of his…?

Eh!? He wasn’t here today!?

Useless!

I looked straight ahead as I sipped my hibiscus tea, trying not to look at the boy sitting with me.

After a long while, Kaburagi finally raised his head.

“…Got it.”

Hm? What did he get?

“I need some time to think. Let’s talk again tomorrow,” he said before standing up.

Ah, was he going home now?

But…

“My apologies, but tomorrow I already have plans and cannot come to the salon.”

Sorry… But I’m already going to Mao-chan’s birthday party, you know~

Wah! Come on, don’t blame me with your eyes like that~

What if I bring you some sweets from the party? Would you like that?

Eh? You don’t want them?

Okay then.

“Reika-oneesama! Welcome!”

“Gokigen’yoh, Mao-chan. Happy birthday.”

She was wearing a white dress.

With Yuuri-kun in his little bowtie next to her, the two of them looked like a tiny bride and groom!

“You look adorable in that dress, Mao-chan. You just need a bouquet and you would be the spitting image of a bride.”

So I handed over a bouquet.

Mao-chan met Yuuri-kun’s eyes, looking both happy and shy.

Mmmn, it’s spring.

Since the primary school section finished classes before the high school section did, the party had already begun.

By now all the kids in the Petit Pivoine were familiar with me, and they came in turns to say hello to me.

So cute~

So soothing~

Haah~

Today was stressful since I was worried Kaburagi would summon me.

But he didn’t say anything in particular, and from what I saw he seemed normal, so I supposed that I was safe for now.

I took a seat next to Mao-chan and handed over her present.

“Reika-oneesama, did you come straight from school?” she asked.

“Yes. Please do excuse me for coming in my uniform,” I smiled.

“No, I’m just really happy that you came,” she told me.

For her birthday, I got Mao-chan a Swarovski pendant.

Girls loved sparkly things.

Wakaba-chan’s little sister was a good example of that.

So was the time when Imari-sama bought Mao-chan that glass hair ornament, so I hoped she’d like my present too.

“Wah, it’s so cute! Thank you so much! Can I wear it now?”

“Please do.”

I’m so glad that she liked it!

Putting it on, she turned to Yuuri-kun and asked,

“How do I look?”

“It really suits you, Mao,” he smiled in return.

Wow. I think maybe even a primary schooler had better skills in romance than Kaburagi…

When Mao-chan’s mother came over to thank me for the present, she encouraged me to try some of the cooking, so I began to help myself.

Most of what was presented to day was cooked by her mother.

As expected of her~

Mmm, this chicken in boiled tomatoes was really good!

“I actually wanted Akimi-san to come too, but since we only just met I wasn’t sure if she would be happy to get an invitation,” Mao-chan told me.

“Ah, I see.”

Mao-chan had taken a liking to Akimi-san ever she came over that time during the spring holidays.

“I’m really excited. She’s going to teach me how to bake bread next time! Haruto-niisama loves bread, and they talked for ages the other day about which bakeries were good.”

“I see…”

“Akimi-san said that she loves freshly-baked raisin bread. Haruto-niisama went and bought some to try afterwards, and he said that it was delicious too.”

“My…”

“He said that Akimi-san really liked sweet things. Should we go together sometime? Me, and you, and Akimi-san, and Haruto-niisama, and Yuuri!”

“Mao-chan…”

“Yes?”

“…Could it be that you are trying to pair Akimi-san with Ichinokura-sama?”

“Uhuhu.”

I knew it.

She had seemed rather forceful in insisting that Akimi-san go home with them that day.

“Ichinokura-san is already officially dating somebody, is he not?”

That beautiful model of a girlfriend.

“Apparently they haven’t been meeting much, recently.”

“Truly!?”

“Yes. So now is my chance…” she smirked.

Oh my god!

When did my pure little Mao-chan learn to smile so evilly like this?

“If I could choose, I would have actually preferred you to marry him, but…”

“Ehh!?”

“I gave up on that, though. After all, you already have somebody as dreamy as Imari-sama, and at school you have the Emperor and Yukino-kun’s oniisama as well, right? Haruto-niisama would have just too many rivals.”

Hmm?

Um, I think I just heard some names that I couldn’t ignore…

“Ummm, Mao-chan, are you perhaps having a terrible misunderstanding about something?”

“Don’t worry! Instead, you’ll help me with Akimi-san, won’t you? Won’t you, Reika-oneesama?”

Ugh!

How could anybody refuse those adorable puppy eyes of yours?

When she grows up, Mao-chan is going to have all the men wrapped around her finger, isn’t she…

Good luck, Yuuri-kun!

  1. Hopefully, Bakaburagi learns his lesson and never doubts his new deity again. Oh man, he really needs all the help he can get~ But with his new interactions with Reika, rumors will definitely be spreading. Reika is probably going to graduate as chief of the FAV, huh.

    Our poor girl~ T-T

    Is Foodie-niisan making a comeback?? Don’t fall for it, Akimi! You deserve someone at least above that level!

    Thanks so much for the update. Glad to see you’re back! We’ve missed you~

  4. Lol, I was 99% sure that big blank space in the middle of the chapter had some comments from Estelion-oniisama on Kaburagi refusing sweets.

    Like

  5. for someone who has never been in a romantic relationship, Reika sure does give some good solid real-world advice. Thankfully she made Kaburagi realize BEFORE he broke Wakaba’s heart, that he wasn’t treating Wakaba as Wakaba, but as a sort of Yurie substitute. I’m looking forward to seeing what this revelation will do for Kaburagi’s character growth. =)

    on another note, when is Enjou coming back??? i’m missing my doses of EnjouxReika moments! TT_TT lol

    This was one of my favourite sections when I was reading the raws. It’s such a pivotal and raw emotional moment for Kaburagi, and Reika not only gives it to him straight, but doesn’t joke about it even in her head afterward.

    She’s always silly, but this time she truly lives up to her role as a romance guru. And Kaburagi’s sincere reflection reminds me why, despite all his faults, I can’t find it in myself to hate him.

    And Mao is such a devious little girl. That Imari Reika Ship. I’m awaiting the moment the Great Onii-sama strangles and throws Imari overboard and watch him drown. Hahahahaha 😂😂😂

    Although it was mean of Haruto to bring them out to eat so much and saying he loves women who can eat and yet his girlfriend is a super slim model who only ate a tiny salad. That had been an awkward moment. Akimi x Haruto? Hehehe

  11. You know.. baka manages to make you feel angry and sad for him at the same time, he’s like a clueless idiot that you can’t help feeling sorry for and yet you want to step on him at the same time…. so confusion!

    I had been in such a great mood since giving Wakaba those reference books, who would’ve thought that something so simple could reap such amazing results, truly Kisshouins advice is not to be underestimated! so far she is living up to her Love Guru status that those guys kept raving about… aah Wakaba, soon you will be mine! I wanted to spoil her so badly… I dreamed of fine restaurants with her by my side, impressed with high-quality food in classy and beautiful surroundings, what is wrong with such things Kisshouin!

    Kisshouin was looking rather smug, well… I guess she deserves that, it was great advice! aaah the longer I get to talk with Wakaba the more my heart yearns for a romantic adventure! She would look amazing in one of those dresses Yurie wears! I would have her holding my arm as I escort her to high-class places! gah! I want to do that now! but… Kisshouin always puts a “cease and desist” order on such things. I really wanted to sulk.

    “We’re competing to see how who can get further in the exercise books.”

    There’s that smug look again, yes yes, thanks for the advice again you were right.
    But then I’m not hating that look because I’m feeling the same way! hah… life is so good right now!

    “That girl hates to lose, after all,”

    Wakaba had such a competitive gleam in her beautiful eyes, I got chills, I was so excited, I wanted her to look at me only… Oh! feeling like I’m walking on air, so much time spent together, can this last forever?
    I suddenly had an urge to read love poems, I can’t stop grinning.

    “You are working hard together,”

    You can stop looking smug now Kisshouin, now I need to move forward from here, random thoughts entered my head making my heart flutter, haha so good! I was imagining dancing under a full moon, classical music playing while holding her in my arms, this is what will happen when you are mine Wakaba, look forward to it!

    “We talk on the phone or message each other about questions that we can’t solve.”

    Hah! I helped her solve a problem, then pretended that I needed help! a little deceit never hurt anyone! hearing her voice was like a gentle whisper in my ear! I can’t get enough! more more!!

    “You have her mail address!?”

    Why do you look so shocked? not everyone is like you! tsk getting your email and phone number was like pulling a tooth! seriously whats your problem!

    “Yeah. There was an accident during the summer, so I’ve had it since then.”

    “I see…”

    Hey… why do you have such a horrified look on your face… it doesn’t look attractive you know… seriously stop that! why is it turning to disgust! you!!

    “…Sending too many messages may bother her, so please show some moderation.”

    “I know. Even I know restraint,” I declared rather proudly.

    “Truly, now? Women despise men who will not give up, you know?”

    I get it…

    “Yeah.”

    “If she does not reply to your email, you must not pester her, you know?”

    I get it already!! shut up!!

    “You’re the one who won’t give up! What kind of guy do you think I am!?”

    She didn’t look convinced at all, what the heck is her problem! first, she wants my blood, is overly critical and now shes nagging me about something I know already! calm down! I’m not some crazy stalker! Tch… I was in a good mood now that’s ruined, thanks Kisshouin!

    I could hear her sipping that tea, I was feeling sour… why does she have to put a dampener on my feelings! but… I only need to think of Wakaba again and I feel light and fluffy haha! fluffy! what an absurd word but so true!! I’ll be spending more time with her later.

    “…We’ll be going to the library, yeah?” I spoke my thoughts out loud not really expecting an answer.

    “Yes, you did mention something like that.”

    “I was thinking of asking her out for a meal this time…”

    “Please try not to bring her to anywhere too unapproachable.”

    What the hell does that mean? Those places are meant to be entered you know that right Kisshouin? its a place of business, if you want to avoid it then it defeats the purpose!

    “Unapproachable? Like, how unapproachable is unapproachable even?”

    I really don’t understand how Kisshouins mind works, it’s unfathomable…

    “Hmmm. Well, having dinner at a French restaurant certainly qualifies. If you are going for Italian, then go for somewhere informal like a café or a regular restaurant, not one of the expensive ones. I suppose if I had to add to that, go for a restaurant that is well lit.”

    Informal? not expensive? why not! that’s impossible! I don’t even know what kinds of places that would be? Yurie had no problems with going there, why are you being such a stickler for details, its just food Kisshouin!

    “That’s hard. Do I have to follow all those restrictions?”

    Whats with that look Kisshouin? It’s like you think I haven’t got a brain or something, I’m top of our year you fool! you barely make it into the top 30! tch… just why do I have to put up with that from you!

    What would a spoiled brat like you know about informal anyway? I bet you’ve never been in anything less than a 5-star restaurant in your life! Don’t go giving advice about something you know nothing about! tch…
    Besides, I’ve already taken her out hah! take that Kisshouin!

    “Last time I went with her to a restaurant, she didn’t seem to mind that much.”

    “Eh!? When was this!?”

    “During the summer.”

    “Was it dinner?”

    “No, it was lunch that time. We stopped by after coming back from the hospital.”

    “I see…”

    “Where did you take her, incidentally?”

    Obviously to a place that was good Kisshouin, it Yuries approval so of course it would be wonderful, I remembered Yuries eyes happy expression when we went there, Wakaba was also pleased! I have some skills you know Kisshouin, I’m not useless!

    “Yurie liked it.”

    I don’t just use you as a gauge for how things should be Kisshouin! I have eyes myself you know!

    “So Yurie-sama liked it…”

    What is with that look Kisshouin? why do you look concerned? you sure like to show what you’re thinking don’t you…

    “So did you suddenly invite her too, that time?”

    “Huh? Yeah. It was just about lunchtime so I suggested getting some food before taking her home. That restaurant allows last minute reservations after all.”

    It was alright … wasn’t it? I know it was sudden but Yurie never had a problem with that sort of thing… I’m sure Wakaba wouldn’t mind it either, I didn’t make her feel weird did I?… why do I feel uncomfortable?

    “But it’s not like she was wearing anything weird, alright!? And she said the food was good! And also it might have been French but it was a relatively casual place, okay!”

    Kisshouin looks annoyed… can’t she be happy for me just once dammit! fuck! why do I feel so damned defensive all of a sudden!

    “Casual, huh…?”

    “I suppose that is fine then… But I had no idea you were so fond of French. You wanted to bring her to Aoyama for French food as well.”

    “Ah, it’s not like I really like it or anything, but Yurie liked it,”

    Again! goddammit! why do you look so fucking disappointed! what the hell! gah, I’m so annoyed…

    “Kaburagi-sama…”

    “Huh?”

    “Kaburagi-sama, please stop making all of your decisions based on Yurie-sama.”

    Why the fuck not! and why do I feel like I’m being cornered! the image of the Goddess Kali sprang to mind when she sat directly in front of me staring into my soul her eyes unblinking… she was serious right now…

    “Hah?” he replied blankly.

    “Buying presents that Yurie-sama would like, taking her to restaurants that Yurie-sama would like, with cuisine that Yurie-sama would like. Everything you have done has been with Yurie-sama as a basis, with the assumption that if Yurie-sama would like it, Takamichi-san would as well.”

    Whats wrong with that! Wakaba is a girl too, if Yurie liked it then so would she! but the more I thought about it, my discomfort grew…

    “But the girl you like is supposed to be Takamichi-san, is it not? Then should you not be thinking about what kind of presents would make her happy, and what kind of food she might want to try?”

    …. I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach.. w…wait… t..thats not it… that wasn’t my intent!! I didn’t… Yurie was… that… aarrghh!! for some reason I wanted to find a room lock the door and roll on the ground repeatedly, just where did that imagery come from?

    “That’s…”

    “Yurie-sama might indeed be fine about being suddenly taken to a fancy French dinner, and certainly her clothing would not be out of place. I can understand why you might not have thought too deeply about it because of that.”

    My balls got kicked now… j… just wait… Kisshouin… too much… I did think, that’s all I did, constantly thinking about her, to the point my brain bled! I’m here looking for your advice because of it…

    “But Takamichi-san is not Yurie-sama. An expensive French restaurant is not somewhere that a normal high school girl often goes to,” She said, before looking at me straight in the eyes. “Who are you really looking at?”

    My eyes went wide with shock as realization sunk in… critical hit Kisshouin… I … I couldn’t salvage any pride in myself after what I had done to Wakaba. Yurie is not Wakaba… and Wakaba is not Yurie… FOOL!!! WHAT A DAMN FOOL YOU ARE!! THIS IS WHY YOU GET NOWHERE!!!, I hung my head in shame, all kinds of curses cast upon my stupid self… just what was I thinking… what other clueless things had I done without realizing?… just what am I doing? Kisshouin… so … so brutal…

    “Ah, umm… But at least you meant well, right? Mmn, I could tell.”

    “…”

    Kisshouin… you stabbed my heart and now you are trying to put a band-aid on it?

    “Oh! I know! That maple syrup was a great choice, right?” I said hastily. “And that teddybear was a good idea too. I approve.”

    Stabbing me again Kisshouin… so fucking heartless…

    “Pardon? What was that?”

    “…The maple syrup was Shuusuke’s idea, and the teddybear… was something that I picked because Yurie liked them…”

    “Uwaahh…”

    I heard her sipping tea… you sure take things easy don’t you Kisshouin… I’m bleeding here… the blood you want is splattered all over the place because of your words… go ahead! take my blood, smear it all over your damn contract!…

    But… thank you, had I kept going forward this way like I had before, then it would’ve been disastrous, thank you Kisshouin.. although I won’t admit that fuck you! Don’t think I won’t forget how cruelly you forced me to see the light!… I… arrrghhh! I was wrong Kisshouin!… and you are right… tch…

    “…Got it.”

    “I need some time to think. Let’s talk again tomorrow,” I said before standing up, Wakaba… I will only think of you from now on, no comparisons to other people, and Yurie, as much as I loved you, I must let go of what I knew from you, and leave it in the past, I will keep moving forward towards my goal, I’m more determined than ever!

    Who are you kidding fool!.. I have no confidence at all! what are you spouting idiot!! someone call an ambulance, my fake self-confidence just disappeared!
    “My apologies, but tomorrow I already have plans and cannot come to the salon.”

    I gave her a blank look, my heart in tatters, just what the fuck was I so damned happy about earlier, and now my one source of getting myself out of the shit up and abandons me… fuck… Don’t bribe me with sweets Kisshouin I don’t want any! choke on them for abandoning me! … ok don’t choke… just… can’t you see I’m in pain here! take responsibility dammit! wheres Shuuske… Ill find Shuuske… that bastard can help pull me out of this hell…

    Enjou Pov

    I had seen Kisshouin and Masaya happily talking to each other when they first sat down together, he looked really pleased, ahh, I’ll leave him in your capable hands Kisshouin, I disappeared for a time then came back to the salon, only to see an incredible sight… my god what happened?

    Masaya had been sickeningly happy all morning and was eager to share his romantic encounter with Wakaba, which was because of a reference book that she recommended… Well done Kisshouin, you really reined in that fools impulsive desires to swamp Wakaba with finery and such… as expected, you are on another level Kisshouin, bravo! but what is this scene… Masaya looks like he got beaten up, and the culprit is none other than Kisshouin herself…

    I was incredibly curious but warning signs were blaring in my mind to stay away… “Do not enter!”… I backed away making a hasty retreat, whatever you did Kisshouin, I better not be used as a comfort tool from your fall out!

  13. Wow. I think maybe even a primary schooler had better skills in romance than Kaburagi…

    Reika-sama That’s Harsh but 90% true HAHAHA!

    When she grows up, Mao-chan is going to have all the men wrapped around her finger, isn’t she…

    That’s also true…

    Good luck, Yuuri-kun!

  14. Watching Reika and Kaburagi bounce off of each other is a lot of fun. I like that they’re actually on good enough terms that Reika is no longer afraid of him and that Kaburagi trusts her enough to take her advice. Like character growth and stuff.

    It’s nice seeing Reika become more comfortable inside her own skin as the chapters progress. Whether she seems to recognize it or not, she’s an equal to Enjou and Kaburagi and probably is well enough idolized by the children, who look up to her as role model.

  15. Thank you for the chapter!
    More Bakaburagi being unreasonable… At least it looks like he’s learning! Also, what’s Vampyr? A computer game?

  16. ‘A primary schooler has more skills in romance than Bakaburagi’ A summary of his character so far tbh

    I’m not gonna lie, I’m aboard the ImariReika ship, but it’s going to be like Titanic, isn’t? EnjouReika is nice too~

    1. Try the Lusitania. Plenty of fame news involved (Mao-chan’s misunderstandings), hostile forces (Imari getting stabbity stabbed), and the potential for all out war afterwards.

  17. Wah, what a bloody chapter. Both King and Queen received critical hits:

    “Oh! I know! That maple syrup was a great choice, right?” I said hastily. “And that teddybear was a good idea too. I approve.”

    Bakaragi HP = 1/999998

    “You already have somebody as dreamy as Imari-sama, and at school you have the Emperor and Yukino-kun’s oniisama as well, right?”

    Reika HP = 1/999999

    Karma?

    Thanks alot for this chapter!!
    Please tell me if there is going to be more blood in coming chapters too!!

  18. >> “You look adorable in that dress, Mao-chan. You just need a bouquet and you would be the spitting image of a bride.”
    >> So I handed over a bouquet.

    Reikaaaaaaaaaa

    >> Wakaba-chan’s little sister was a good example of that.

    Wakaba’s little sister doesn’t have much presence compared to the younger brother. Though I suppose she coined Cornet.

    >> “Yes. So now is my chance…” she smirked.
    >> Oh my god!
    >> When did my pure little Mao-chan learn to smile so evilly like this?

    Good question. We can’t even blame Reika for this.

    >> “I gave up on that, though. After all, you already have somebody as dreamy as Imari-sama, and at school you have the Emperor and Yukino-kun’s oniisama as well, right? Haruto-niisama would have just too many rivals.”

    Yup, Reika and her harem. *snickers*

    Although come to think of it, Imari might actually be willing to go out with Reika? She’s not been taking him seriously at all but, maybe?

        1. Yeah, if you pay attention you’ll notice all these hints about a twin brother who is kept locked up in a different wing of the house and treated like an animal. You see, Reika and her twin are the subject of a controlled psychology experiment to see how two children would develop in response to different upbringings.

          But then one day, he got out and is now haunting the attics and secret passages of the rather expansive Kisshouin estate. He also wears a mask.

          ~Woooo! Spooky!

    Reika : Kaburagi, this is your new romance teacher – point at Yuuri kun.
    Bakaragi : that is just a kid …
    Reika : He already has a girlfriend when you only have crush on Wakaba….
    Bakaragi : – knee down in front of Yuuri with teary eyes – teach me master !!!!

  20. Thanks. “But Takamichi-san is not Yurie-sama. An expensive French restaurant is not somewhere that a normal high school girl often goes to,” I said, before looking at him straight in the eyes. “Who are you really looking at?” – Daaamn Reika, didn’t realize how much this needed to be said until she said it, hope this fixes at least some of Bakaburagi’s hang-ups.

  21. I’m calling it NOW Enjou pushes on Kaburagi love problems onto Reika so she would feel like Kaburagi was really in love with someone else… however his plan seems to be backfiring and now he will start to panic and keep a close on them more.

    1. Enjou stopped “dumping” problems on Reika back in, what was it, middle school? After Reika first intimidated Tsuruhana and she blew up at him. The second time was really him looking for advice about Kaburagi’s suicidal phase, because he was genuinely anxious and at his wit’s end.

      This second time is entirely Reika’s fault, since she just hated Kaburagi too much to take the situation seriously. Nonetheless, Enjou has stopped expecting anything of her. He’s also stopped teasing her because this wasn’t well-received and has since stuck to unambiguous compliments and gifts that can’t be misinterpreted. So he merely comes across as insincere instead of insulting.

          1. He asked Akizawa and that other dude that crossdresses (his name escapes me at the moment).
            Kaburagi has a lot of male friends and Reika has noted in the past that he spends time talking about sports and things like that with them.

  22. Except he’s still bothering Reika every five minutes over text, isn’t he? Considerate fellow, indeed.. *facepalm*

    Rofl, Reika just shattered Bakaburagi’s soul. I feel bad for him, but this is way too hilarious!

    Mao is already becoming quite the schemer. Poor Reika just can’t get away from the schemers, and this one is way too cute so she’s even weaker.

    Thanks for the chapter :D
