  7. -Hozumi Coffeehouse-

  9. [*Snap*]
  10.  
  11. Shizuku
  12. ...Ha!
  13.  
  14. Ryou
  15. Oh, did I wake ya?
  16.  
  17. Ikumi
  18. Geez, Ryou-chan, taking pictures of a sleeping girl's face is in really bad taste~
  19.  
  20. Ryou
  21. Ahaha, sorry, sorry.
  22.  
  23. Shizuku
  24. Ah, um...
  25.  
  26. Ikumi
  27. We were all just talking about Valentine's.
  28.  
  29. Shizuku
  30. That's right... I must have fallen asleep...
  31.  
  32. Ikumi
  33. Did you stay up late? Are you feeling sick? Doing okay?
  34.  
  35. Shizuku
  36. ...Yes, I'm okay.
  37.  
  38. Ryou
  39. Then, once again,
  40. Sakurako-san here would like to experience what Valentine's is all about.
  41.  
  42. Sakurako
  43. | It is because everyone has been speaking of it lately. |
  44. | I am still not sure what the event is about yet, |
  45. | but I would like to partake in more fun activities with Iroha and the others. |
  46.  
  47. Ryou
  48. And there ya go.
  49.  
  50. Shizuku
  51. That's great and everything, but why did you come to see me...?
  52.  
  53. Ryou
  54. I felt like Hozumi-chan and Sakurako-san would get along nicely.
  55.  
  56. Shizuku
  57. That's it...?
  58.  
  59. Ryou
  60. Yep, that's it.
  61.  
  62. Shizuku
  63. Huhu, I understand.
  64. It's a pleasure to meet you, Sakurako-san.
  65.  
  66. Sakurako
  67. | Nice to meet you, Shizuku. |
  68.  
  69. Ikumi
  70. So, you want to make chocolates for now?
  71.  
  72. Ryou
  73. Well, that is the basics.
  74.  
  75. Sakurako
  76. | Is that so? |
  77.  
  78. Ryou
  79. For Valentine's, it's common to give out chocolate.
  80.  
  81. Sakurako
  82. | ...Understood. |
  83.  
  84. Shizuku
  85. Well then, where are we going to make it?
  86.  
  87. Sakurako
  88. | Mikazuki Manor is in use by Iroha's group. |
  89.  
  90. Ikumi
  91. My place would be a little difficult...
  92.  
  93. Ryou
  94. Midori-san's place is a bit cramped too...
  95.  
  96. Ikumi
  97. Maybe we could rent some space at the adjuster's shop?
  98.  
  99. Ryou
  100. That's a pretty good idea, but...
  101. If Yakumo-san said she'd like to participate in making chocolates,
  102. we'd have a big problem, you know...
  103.  
  104. Ikumi
  105. That's...for sure. Those poor chocolates...
  106.  
  107. Shizuku's Father
  108. Oh, what's this, are you guys planning on making chocolates?
  109.  
  110. Shizuku
  111. ...Yeah, but we can't figure out where to make them...
  112.  
  113. Shizuku's Father
  114. In that case, feel free to use the kitchen in the house.
  115.  
  116. Shizuku
  117. Is that okay?
  118. Thank you, Otou-san...!
  119.  
  120. -Kitchen-
  121.  
  122. Ryou
  123. We're always coming to Hozumi-chan's coffeehouse, but...
  124.  
  125. Ikumi
  126. We've never been in your home before.
  127.  
  128. Shizuku
  129. It's not very big, though...
  130.  
  131. Ikumi
  132. No, this is a huge help! Thank you!
  133.  
  134. Ryou
  135. And thanks to Hozumi-chan's father.
  136.  
  137. Sakurako
  138. | Then, let's get started immediately. |
  139.  
  140. Ryou
  141. Yeah, I bought all of the ingredients,
  142. and the recipe's up in Sakurako's head.
  143.  
  144. Shizuku
  145. By the way, do all of you normally cook...?
  146.  
  147. Ikumi
  148. Kumi does, 'cause Kumi's a maid.
  149. I'm really good at drawing with ketchup.
  150.  
  151. Sakurako
  152. | I have accessed the database from Nemu. |
  153.  
  154. Ryou
  155. Midori-san hasn't made many sweets,
  156. but does some simple cooking from time to time at home.
  157.  
  158. Shizuku
  159. I see.
  160.  
  161. ---
  162.  
  163. Ryou
  164. 80g of sugar... Well, this oughta be enough.
  165.  
  166. Shizuku
  167. W-wait, Ryou-san...!
  168.  
  169. Ryou
  170. Mm?
  171.  
  172. Shizuku
  173. For sweets...if you get the wrong amount, they end up bad...
  174.  
  175. Ryou
  176. Oh, is that right?
  177.  
  178. Ikumi
  179. Ryou-chan, this is 120g! You're being sloppy...! Totally!
  180.  
  181. Shizuku
  182. If you don't make the sweets according to the recipe, they're probably not going to turn out well...
  183.  
  184. Ryou
  185. Is that so?
  186. Usually when Midori-san's cooking, everything just gets thrown in.
  187.  
  188. Shizuku
  189. I'm more impressed than anything that you manage like that...
  190.  
  191. Ikumi
  192. That's just like Ryou-chan, though.
  193.  
  194. Ryou
  195. That was a good lesson. Thanks, Shizuku-chan.
  196.  
  197. Shizuku
  198. N-no...
  199.  
  200. Ikumi's Voice
  201. Wappu! The flouuurrr~
  202.  
  203. Ryou
  204. ...What happened?
  205.  
  206. Ikumi
  207. S-sorry! Some of the flour went all over the place...
  208. ...G-geez~, Kumi is so clumsyyy~
  209.  
  210. Ryou
  211. Ahh, I see.
  212. So you're testin' out a clumsy character this time, huh?
  213.  
  214. Ikumi
  215. It's not a characterrr~
  216. Kumi's huffin' puffin' mad!
  217.  
  218. Ryou
  219. Ah, there's flour under you, so don't start flailin' or you'll fall...
  220.  
  221. Ikumi
  222. Kya!?
  223.  
  224. [*Fall*]
  225.  
  226. Ryou
  227. Don't say ya weren't warned.
  228.  
  229. Ikumi
  230. Eee~n, Kumi's in pain and can't get uuup~
  231.  
  232. Shizuku
  233. ...Come on, start taking this seriously or we'll never finish.
  234. Follow Sakurako-san's example.
  235.  
  236. Ryou
  237. Huh, but isn't Sakurako-san stuck?
  238.  
  239. Shizuku
  240. Eh...?
  241.  
  242. Sakurako
  243. | ..... |
  244.  
  245. Shizuku
  246. Sakurako-san...?
  247.  
  248. Sakurako
  249. | Shizuku, there is something I don't understand. |
  250. | It is written that I am to let the dough settle, |
  251. | but is the dough not calm right now? |
  252. | What must I do to calm the dough down? |
  253.  
  254. Shizuku
  255. Ahh...um, that means to leave the dough out for a little.
  256.  
  257. Sakurako
  258. | But if the dough is panicking, is it okay to just leave it alone? |
  259.  
  260. Shizuku
  261. Umm, when it says to let it settle, it doesn't mean it like that...
  262.  
  263. Sakurako
  264. | Was the information Nemu provided me incorrect? |
  265.  
  266. Shizuku
  267. It's not like that...
  268. ...Ikumi-san, how would you explain this...?
  269.  
  270. Ikumi
  271. Ehh~! Passed to Kumiii?
  272.  
  273. [*Snap*]
  274.  
  275. Ikumi
  276. Hey, what're you doing, Ryou-chan!?
  277. Don't just take pictures, help us out~
  278.  
  279. Ryou
  280. Mm, Sakurako-san really doesn't seem to be grasping the concept here...
  281.  
  282. Sakurako
  283. | If Hinano was here, |
  284. | I might have access to chloroform. |
  285.  
  286. Ryou
  287. ...That'll do more than just calm down.
  288.  
  289. Ikumi
  290. Who taught Sakurako-chan about such a dangerous thing!?
  291.  
  292. Sakurako
  293. | I saw it in a drama. |
  294.  
  295. Ryou
  296. If you mixed chloroform in with the sweets,
  297. we'd be all over the papers.
  298.  
  299. Sakurako
  300. | Then, what am I supposed to do...? |
  301.  
  302. Ryou
  303. When humans want to calm down, we take deep breaths.
  304.  
  305. Sakurako
  306. | .....! |
  307. | ...Nemu would drink coffee when she was settling down... |
  308.  
  309. Ryou
  310. Your face says "I get it now," but that's not it at all.
  311.  
  312. Ikumi
  313. Is this how it usually goes when you help Yachiyo-san with cooking?
  314.  
  315. Sakurako
  316. | No, any time I was about to make a mistake, Yachiyo would tell me. |
  317.  
  318. Ryou
  319. So you can do what you're told, but you can't handle following a recipe...
  320.  
  321. Shizuku
  322. Th-then... Let's split up the roles!
  323.  
  324. ---
  325.  
  326. Ikumi
  327. Finished~♪
  328.  
  329. Ryou
  330. All thanks to Hozumi-chan's direction.
  331.  
  332. Sakurako
  333. | Yes, unlike Ryou, I am capable of making accurate measurements. |
  334.  
  335. Ryou
  336. And Midori-san got to be in charge of covering Sakurako-san's weak points.
  337.  
  338. Kumi
  339. And Kumi got to put on the cutesy finishing touches♪
  340.  
  341. Shizuku
  342. ...Making sweets is harder than I thought...
  343.  
  344. Sakurako
  345. | But Shizuku, you were having fun. |
  346.  
  347. Shizuku
  348. Eh...?
  349.  
  350. Sakurako
  351. | You were smiling the entire time we were working. |
  352.  
  353. Shizuku
  354. .....
  355. (That's right...I was having fun.)
  356. (I didn't notice because I was so busy. That it's very...)
  357. ...Yeah, it was fun.
  358.  
  359. Ikumi
  360. Yeah, Kumi also had lots of fun!
  361.  
  362. Ryou
  363. Making sweets isn't so bad after all.
  364. By the way, who is everyone giving their chocolate to?
  365.  
  366. Sakurako
  367. | ...I must give it to someone? |
  368.  
  369. Ryou
  370. That's because it's Valentine's.
  371.  
  372. Sakurako
  373. | ...Because it's Valentine's, you give it? |
  374.  
  375. Shizuku
  376. Eh?
  377.  
  378. Ryou
  379. Mm... What are you asking?
  380.  
  381. Sakurako
  382. | I do not understand. |
  383. | Why do you give chocolates on Valentine's Day? |
  384.  
  385.  
  386. =====2=====
  387.  
  388. Shizuku
  389. Why do we give chocolates on Valentine's Day...?
  390. If you ask me, I'm not sure I can give an answer...
  391.  
  392. Sakurako
  393. | I searched for the origin, but there are multiple theories. |
  394.  
  395. Ryou
  396. Well, to tell you the truth, it's all a marketing strategy.
  397. There's events like this all around the world.
  398.  
  399. Ikumi
  400. Ryou-chan has no romance at all!
  401.  
  402. Ryou
  403. Then what are your thoughts, Makino-chan?
  404.  
  405. Ikumi
  406. Kumi thinks that Valentine's is for giving kyun kyuns to everyone that you love
  407. by telling them through sweet chocolates!
  408.  
  409. Sakurako
  410. | Sweet... I do not know what that tastes like. |
  411.  
  412. Ikumi
  413. Oh right, Sakurako-chan can't eat food.
  414.  
  415. Sakurako
  416. | Yes. |
  417.  
  418. Ikumi
  419. Mmm~ let's see, I would describe sweet as a
  420. fluffy, happy, melt-in-your-mouth kind of taste!
  421.  
  422. Sakurako
  423. | Happy taste... |
  424.  
  425. Ikumi
  426. And then, Kumi takes that sweet chocolate
  427. and packs it tightly with my kyu~n kyun feelings~
  428.  
  429. Sakurako
  430. | Kyun kyun tightly...? | ¹
  431.  
  432. Ryou
  433. Makino-chan, you're starting to confuse Sakurako-san.
  434.  
  435. Ikumi
  436. Awawa, umm... Anyway, so Kumi uh!
  437. All of Kumi's friends are always so nice to me at the maid cafe,
  438. and there's all of the masters that are always supporting me, too...
  439. That kind of thing, yeah?
  440. To give all of those heartfelt thanks
  441. we have a day to put those feelings into chocolate and give them.
  442. That's what Kumi thinks of Valentine's Day!
  443.  
  444. Sakurako
  445. | ...It is a day to give chocolate to those most precious to you...? |
  446.  
  447. Ikumi
  448. Right♪
  449.  
  450. Shizuku
  451. .....
  452.  
  453. Ryou
  454. Huh, something the matter, Hozumi-chan?
  455. Maybe...you wanted to tell Sakurako-san that,
  456. but you weren't quite sure?
  457.  
  458. Shizuku
  459. Yeah, I just... Never really thought about it.
  460. Giving thanks to those most precious to you...
  461.  
  462. Ryou
  463. But, that's right... It's normally a bit embarrassing,
  464. but if I got a reason like this, it should be easier to express my gratitude, huh.
  465.  
  466. Ikumi
  467. That's right!
  468.  
  469. Shizuku
  470. I'm also... Starting to understand a little...
  471.  
  472. Sakurako
  473. | ...In other words, Valentine's is |
  474. | a marketing strategy to give your gratitude along with chocolate. |
  475.  
  476. Ryou
  477. It's alright if you forget about the marketing strategy part, okay?
  478.  
  479. Ikumi
  480. I know! Why don't we all exchange chocolates this year?
  481.  
  482. Ryou
  483. Sounds good. Let's invite Hinano-san and Mariko-chan, too.
  484.  
  485. Ikumi
  486. Yeah! I'll send a message to everyone!
  487. Ah, but...I'll be a little busy with work on Valentine's Day...
  488. Would it be okay if we moved the date a little?
  489.  
  490. Ryou
  491. Doesn't bother me one bit.
  492.  
  493. Ikumi
  494. Thanks!
  495. You know, there are more important things than just giving chocolates.
  496.  
  497. -Shizuku's Room-
  498.  
  499. Shizuku
  500. (Today was fun...)
  501. (And we've made plans to exchange chocolates.)
  502. But what should I do...
  503.  
  504. -Flashback-
  505.  
  506. Ikumi
  507. You know, there are more important things than just giving chocolates.
  508.  
  509. Shizuku
  510. More important things...?
  511.  
  512. Ikumi
  513. Like, giving them in a motivational outfit!
  514.  
  515. -End Flashback-
  516.  
  517. Shizuku
  518. Even though you said motivational clothes...
  519. .....I'm worried.
  520.  
  521. -Streets-
  522.  
  523. Shizuku
  524. (I wonder...if these clothes are good enough.)
  525. (...What was the feeling? "Motivated"...)
  526. (I suppose everyone would be embarrassed if we were in our uniforms...)
  527.  
  528. Ikumi
  529. [[Notice for Valentine's Party] This time, we're going to have a party to exchange chocolates and give our thanks♪]
  530. [Meeting place: The maid cafe that Kumi works at! What to bring: Your chocolate and your gratitude for everyone! And don't forget to dress in your best motivational clothes! I'll be waiting♪]
  531.  
  532. -Maid Cafe-
  533.  
  534. Hinano
  535. I saw your message,
  536. and here's some chocolate I made for the occasion...
  537.  
  538. Ayaka's Voice
  539. Me toooo!
  540.  
  541. Hinano
  542. ...The heck is this? Are you starting a cosplay convention?
  543. ...I guess I'm the one stuck playing the tsukkomi bit here...
  544. Could I ask each of you one by one
  545. what was meant by "motivational clothes?"
  546.  
  547. Ryou
  548. Whenever I'm out and about looking for a scoop
  549. or making the newspaper, I always wear this outfit.
  550. When you talk about clothes for being motivated, this is the one for Midori-san.
  551.  
  552. Hinano
  553. Well, I guess I get what you mean.
  554.  
  555. Ikumi
  556. Kumi's always been a maid, after all,
  557. so to convey my kyun kyun feelings,
  558. I thought I should wear a kyuun kyun outfit♪
  559.  
  560. Hinano
  561. ...You...chose this place so you could wear that, didn't you?
  562.  
  563. Ikumi
  564. Ehehe.
  565.  
  566. Sakurako
  567. | I thought that my combat form or my swimsuit would satisfy the conditions, |
  568. | but Iroha and Ui stopped me. |
  569. | Nemu and Touka told me |
  570. | that this would be appropriate because a student's purpose is to study. |
  571. | So, I am wearing this. |
  572.  
  573. Hinano
  574. I'm really grateful that you were stopped, Sakurako...
  575.  
  576. Shizuku
  577. Motivational clothes...
  578. I thought I would dress up for once...
  579. But this is worrying me.
  580.  
  581. Hinano
  582. You're okay, Shizuku, you didn't do anything wrong.
  583. The problem is YOU! Ayaka!
  584.  
  585. Ayaka
  586. EEHHH!?
  587.  
  588. Hinano
  589. What's with the "eehh!?" That's my line!
  590. Did you honestly come all the way here in that getup!?
  591.  
  592. Ayaka
  593. Nahh, I was wondering if I was going to make it,
  594. so I thought I'd go and use a little bit of Shizuku-chan's magic,
  595. but when I got to Shizuku-chan's, it seemed that we had already passed each other.
  596.  
  597. Shizuku
  598. Because you keep trying to use people for your convenience...
  599.  
  600. Hinano
  601. So what you're telling me is you walked outside in those clothes...
  602.  
  603. Ayaka
  604. And then I saw Sakurako-chan
  605. and thought "oh right, she's a member of our party today,"
  606. so I asked her to come with me! Right, Sakurako-chan!?
  607.  
  608. Sakurako
  609. | Yes, I had heard about Ayaka from everyone, |
  610. | but when we started walking together, we got a lot of attention. |
  611.  
  612. Hinano
  613. Of course you would!
  614. ...So, why are you wearing that outfit?
  615.  
  616. Ayaka
  617. Mm? Because it's a motivational outfit?
  618. And that means!
  619. The outfit that gets the most laughs!
  620.  
  621. Hinano
  622. No it's not!
  623.  
  624. Ayaka
  625. IT'S NOOOT!?
  626.  
  627. Ryou
  628. But, isn't this fine?
  629. Seeing everyone's own idea of motivation, Midori-san thinks this is more interesting.
  630.  
  631. Ikumi
  632. Uh-huh♪
  633. Besides, Hinano-san also came in really cute clothes.
  634.  
  635. Shizuku
  636. Yeah, it looks good on you.
  637.  
  638. Sakurako
  639. | You should always dress this way. |
  640.  
  641. Ryou
  642. Definitely, it looks great on you, Hinano-san.
  643.  
  644. Hinano
  645. When you compliment me honestly like that,
  646. you make me think I'm the one going crazy and losing touch...
  647.  
  648. =====3=====
  649.  
  650. Ikumi
  651. And now it's the highly anticipated chocolate exchange time~!
  652. Please give some brief words to everyone along with your chocolate♪
  653. First will be Sakurako-chan!
  654.  
  655. Sakurako
  656. | On Valentine's, I gave everyone at Mikazuki Manor |
  657. | the chocolates I made which left them overjoyed. |
  658. | When I expressed my gratitude, I found myself becoming happy as well, |
  659. | so thank you for teaching me. |
  660. | It would be a long story if I started now, |
  661. | so I will tell it later when I think about it. |
  662.  
  663. Hinano
  664. Then, next is the chocolates from me.
  665.  
  666. Ayaka
  667. Uwa! This is high level!
  668.  
  669. Hinano
  670. Huhun, since making sweets is all about chemical reactions,
  671. it's my specialty.
  672. Well, you know... Thanks for everything.
  673. You guys are always helping me out,
  674. so thank you for your continued support.
  675.  
  676. Ikumi
  677. Then next is the chocolates chock-full of love and affection from Kumi to all of youuu!
  678. ...You know, I always have so much fun when I'm with everyone
  679. that I just can't help but kyun kyun and have a big smile on my face.
  680. So, thank you all for your support.
  681.  
  682. Ryou
  683. Mm? Where's the punchline?
  684.  
  685. Ikumi
  686. Geez, I was completely serious when I said that.
  687.  
  688. Ryou
  689. Ahaha, sorry, sorry.
  690. Alright then, up next is from Midori-san.
  691. Well, this is gonna sound a lot like Makino-chan here,
  692. but Midori-san's been having a lot of fun lately, too.
  693. Looking at all of my developed photos, so many of them are full of smiles,
  694. so thanks. 'Kay, you're up next, Shizuku-chan.
  695.  
  696. Shizuku
  697. Eh, ah, umm...
  698. I know I don't usually say things like this, but...
  699. I also enjoy being with all of you...
  700. I feel like I can laugh out loud naturally...
  701. When I'm with everyone... I feel like I can...
  702. like myself, even just a little...
  703. What I mean is...thank you everyone for being with me.
  704.  
  705. Ikumi
  706. Uu~ That's my line~
  707.  
  708. Ryou
  709. Eh, Makino-chan, why are you practically in tears?
  710.  
  711. Sakurako
  712. | Ryou, does this mean she is playing another character? |
  713.  
  714. Ikumi
  715. Absolutely not~!
  716. Geez, Ryou-chan is just spouting weird things!
  717. It's not that...
  718. It just...feels kind of like I've watched my own child grow up...
  719.  
  720. Ayaka
  721. Uooon, the girl on the right feels the same way~
  722.  
  723. Hinano
  724. ...They love you, Shizuku.
  725.  
  726. Shizuku
  727. Ayaka thinking I'm a child...she's out of her mind.
  728.  
  729. Ayaka
  730. Yes, now it's my tuuurn!
  731.  
  732. Hinano
  733. That was a hell of a switch...
  734.  
  735. Ayaka
  736. Um, it'll shock a bit, but there's not much chocolate... ²
  737.  
  738. Hinano
  739. .....I'm glad that one was easy to understand!
  740.  
  741. Ayaka
  742. ...Ehen! I made it with Shizuku-chan~
  743.  
  744. Ikumi
  745. Eh! Shizuku-chan, you made yours again?
  746.  
  747. Shizuku
  748. Yesterday she showed up out of nowhere and joined me because she hadn't made hers yet...
  749.  
  750. Ayaka
  751. Thanks for that, too! I had fun!
  752.  
  753. Shizuku
  754. ...Sure.
  755.  
  756. Ayaka
  757. And everyone for always laughing at my gags.
  758.  
  759. Ryou
  760. ...?
  761.  
  762. Ayaka
  763. Thank you for being friends with someone like me!
  764. And Sakurako-chan, I look forward to being friends with you!
  765.  
  766. Sakurako
  767. | Yes, I as well, Ayaka. |
  768.  
  769. Ayaka
  770. Also, Shizuku-chan,
  771. sorry for always being so noisy and meddlesome.
  772. So thank you for being friends with me through it all!
  773.  
  774. Shizuku
  775. Eh...
  776. (Sure, you're certainly a noisy one, but...)
  777. (If I didn't like it, I wouldn't still be here with you...)
  778.  
  779. Ayaka
  780. Hey, since we're all here, let's take a picture together!
  781.  
  782. Hinano
  783. Well, it's not often we get together in such chaotic fashion.
  784.  
  785. Ryou
  786. Then Midori-san will take the photo.
  787.  
  788. Ikumi
  789. Ah, you can't! Ryou-chan, you need to be in the photo with us!
  790.  
  791. Sakurako
  792. | It is not good to have so few photos of Ryou. |
  793.  
  794. Hinano
  795. And with you and Sakurako in the picture, Ayaka's insanity stands out.
  796.  
  797. Ayaka
  798. I'm not insane!
  799.  
  800. Ryou
  801. Haha, I get it.
  802.  
  803. Ikumi
  804. [Alriiight, everyone crowd around Kumi~]
  805.  
  806. Ryou
  807. Mm, Shizuku-chan, you're gonna be cut off like that.
  808. Get over here.
  809.  
  810. Shizuku
  811. Wa...
  812.  
  813. Ikumi
  814. [Here we go~]
  815. [Okay, cheese!]
  816.  
  817. [*Snap*]
  818.  
  819. ---
  820.  
  821. Shizuku
  822. Huh...what was I doing...
  823.  
  824. -Hospital-
  825.  
  826. Shizuku
  827. A hospital...? It's dark...what time is it?
  828. ...My smartphone.
  829.  
  830. [*Beep*]
  831.  
  832. Shizuku
  833. Ah...the wallpaper... The Valentine's photo...
  834. ....Ryou...san...
  835. [That's right, those days aren't coming back...]
  836.  
  837. ---
  838.  
  839. Woman
  840. Oh, Hozumi-san, you've gained consciousness.
  841.  
  842. Shizuku
  843. Um, I...
  844.  
  845. Woman
  846. You were brought in after collapsing in the park.
  847.  
  848. Shizuku
  849. Eh...
  850. I...collapsed...
  851. (I can't remember...)
  852. (After hearing about Ryou-san...it really shocked me...and then...)
  853. (I left the shop...)
  854.  
  855. Woman
  856. Your friend called an ambulance.
  857. She stayed by your side the whole way,
  858. but went home before you woke up...
  859. [She said "If I stay I'd just be noisy and meddlesome, and probably just make her angry."]
  860.  
  861. Shizuku
  862. ――っ!?
  863.  
  864. -Flashback-
  865.  
  866. Ayaka
  867. Also, Shizuku-chan,
  868. sorry for always being so noisy and meddlesome.
  869.  
  870. -End Flashback-
  871.  
  872. Shizuku
  873. [That's...not true.]
  874. [Sure you're noisy, often meddling, trying to use my magic for your own convenience, and always suddenly jumping to action while not keeping my pace in mind,]
  875. [but... All of your noise and liveliness moves me around at such a high speed that you never give me a chance to be worried...]
  876. [...What you do...might have even saved me.]
  877. [With Ayaka like that...with everyone being there for me, I can continue being me...]
  878. [...How do I tell you that? How do I convey that...?]
  879.  
  880. -Flashback-
  881.  
  882. Ryou
  883. But, that's right... It's normally a bit embarrassing,
  884. but if I got a reason like this, it should be easier to express my gratitude, huh.
  885.  
  886. ---
  887.  
  888. Ikumi
  889. You know, there are more important things than just giving chocolates.
  890.  
  891. Shizuku
  892. More important things...?
  893.  
  894. Ikumi
  895. Like, giving them in a motivational outfit!
  896.  
  897. -End Flashback-
  898.  
  899. Shizuku
  900. (Today isn't Valentine's Day, but...)
  901. (I'll put on those clothes and write my thoughts onto some sweet chocolate...)
  902. (Listen to me...)
  903. ...Huhu.
  904. (I told Ayaka she can't use it for convenience...)
  905. (but I wonder if my magic was meant for a time like this.)
  906. (It's lights-out time...so if I sneak out, I won't even cause a scene, right...?)
  907.  
  908. -Shizuku's Room-
  909.  
  910. Shizuku
  911. I'm going to tell you what I failed to tell you that day.
  912. ...Wait for me, Ayaka.
  913.  
  914.  
  915. ================
  916. ¹ Ikumi's original line きゅんきゅんな気持ちをぎゅっと詰め込んで~ confuses Sakurako as she repeats back "kyun kyun gyutto...?" and I can't think of a pair of words that sound alike to make this cute confusion make sense.
  917.  
  918. ² Ayaka's original line is えっと、チョコはちょこっとしか入ってないんだけど… which is more like "I only have a little chocolate..." which rhymes choco (チョコ) with chocotto(ちょこっと)
