This summary comes from a wonderful Japanese blog that I read… here’s the link to the original Japanese spoiler: Chapter 41. The blog owner’s posts are so fun to read with a lot of details and comments. 🙂
|Aoi doesn’t know what to say after Kaede finds the photo booth picture. Kaede pleads with Aoi not to say anything to Haru. Kaede feels that if Haru finds out, then she will close off her feelings again. Kaede also asks Aoi not to tell anyone else either until Haru has a chance to convey her feelings and move on. At school, it’s almost time for the mid-semester exams, so Kaede proposes that they have a study group at Yuudai’s house. Back at Aoi and Shuusei’s place, Aoi, thinking about Kaede’s words, isn’t her usual happy self and Shuusei seems concerned. However, they don’t talk about what’s bothering her and Shuusei goes off to take a bath. When he’s done, he sees Aoi sleeping on her side. Lying next to Aoi, Shuusei glances at her lips and neck. He wants to touch her and hold her, but the “no sexual relations under graduation” promise to her father keeps him in check. At Yuudai’s house, Aoi still seems unhappy. Suddenly, someone hugs her from behind, and it’s… Shouta, Yuudai’s younger brother. Apparently Shouta still likes Aoi (from Volume 2). While the guys are outside goofing around, the girls are discussing love. When Kaede blurts out, “Even though you guys went as far as kissing?”, regarding Haru and Shuusei’s relationship, Aoi is frozen in shock. Aoi leaves her seat, and Shouta goes to talk with her. He seems anxious about her relationship with Shuusei. Aoi ends up telling Shouta about their relationship, just as Shuusei appears. Shouta assures them that he won’t say anything but warns Shuusei that feelings could change if he doesn’t hold on to her securely. Shuusei, seeing Shouta hugging Aoi and hearing those words, gets jealous and tells Aoi to come over to him. Exhausted, Aoi is lying down, resting by herself. She wants to believe Shuusei when he told her that he and Haru are just friends, but Haru didn’t deny Kaede’s comment about the kiss. During the time when Aoi, Kaede, Yuudai, and another friend are sleeping, Haru and Shuusei are gone. So where did they go? And Shouta isn’t around either?
