She wasn’t the only one that didn’t get any sleep. Neither did Daisuke but his problem was the way he ruined his confession.
About to play it off, he was surprised by her cheerful greeting. Asking if she hates her, she denies it… only to be interrupted by Kazuki. However, before she left, Hinako told Daisuke that she loves him too, words that made him fall to his knees…

But while walking away, Hinako stopped in her tracks, terrified by his reaction to her secret. She wonders if he’ll still love her, knowing that she had already given birth.
Yuzu arrives and silently told herself to bear the other girl’s secret. It would be unfair and overly cruel to reveal it. However, she also noted that if Daisuke and Hinako were to love each other, it could only have a tragic ending.

As for Daisuke, Kazuki glued herself to his arm and persisted in her attempts to win him over. When he turned her down, saying that he’s still in mourning, she blew up on him.

And of course, her psycho, selfish side reveals itself. That put Daisuke in a desperate situation, not knowing what to do with such an unreasonable person. That led Yuzu and begging for her help.

Though agreeing to divert Kazuki’s attention, Yuzu poked at Daisuke’s weak spot, his not-so-secret feelings for Hinako.
But everything changed when Daisuke revealed the confession he made… and the response he got. “I love you.”
At the same time, Hinako finally gathered the resolve to tell Daisuke her secret. She began making her way toward them.
Yuzu started losing her sanity, realizing that Daisuke might truly love Hinako… and that if a relationship were to form, it might not be so tragic as she initially thought.
Throwing everything aside, she blurted out Hinako’s secret, asking Daisuke if he’ll still love her knowing that she gave birth.

Trying to stop Yuzu from continue, Daisuke looked up… only to see Aikawa standing nearby.
Yuzu actually had the good intentions to not reveal Hinako’s secret… but she finally lost it when talking to Daisuke. Once she heard that the two loved each other, she just couldn’t let the friend she loved since childhood go… and that will definitely spell dire consequences, ruining not only the friendly relationship she has with Daisuke but also putting Hinako in danger. Crazy Kazuki is still around and she’ll definitely use such information to her advantage.
After reading the chapter, I enjoyed it… but I can’t say that it’s as touching as previous chapters. In fact, I felt as though it got a lot more predictable. Hinako walking in on their conversation was just too obvious and I’m worried that my predictions for the remainder of the series… will be a textbook drama/romance ending.
What does that mean? Well, Yuzu will feel sorry once she realized what she’d done. At the same time, she gives up her chance to be with Daisuke since she betrayed him as well. Hinako’s secret is not a secret anymore… As for Kazuki, she’ll go insane over such information and take it upon herself to rid Daisuke of such a girl. She’ll probably try to kill Hinako… only to have Daisuke and Yuzu stop her. That way, Daisuke and Hinako could have their fairytale ending. Yuzu is forgiven and Kazuki would be behind bars, where she belongs. The end.
Will it happen like that? I’m hoping not but my instincts beg to differ. Regardless, there’s only four or five chapters left to prove me wrong.
