Sukitte Ii na yo [Chapter 14]

Summarized by: Carolyne

The last chapter ended off with Mei taking the initiative to kiss Yamato. Mei wonders what she should do for Yamato to be hers alone. Because she can’t be straightforward, she can only call out to him in her head. Mei questions if he is the kind of guy that could enter another girl’s house despite having a girlfriend. Yamato was taken by surprise by the kiss and asks her why the sudden kiss. Before he could get a reply, he saw that Mei was tearing and before he could say anything, Mei, also surprised to find herself crying, apologized, said goodbye and ran away. Mei thinks that it would be best if Yamato stops modeling, however as she was the one that encouraged him, she feels that it would not be good to let him know of her feelings. Yamato, unaware of Mei’s uneasiness, is still basking in the joy of the Mei-initiated-kiss. Megumi calls out to Yamato to head to the studio together. Mei noticed that Yamato was in high spirits but Yamato replied that nothing significant happened. Some of Megumi’s fans spotted her and requested for her signature. Yamato is amazed that Megumi makes it a point to answer to the wishes of her fans. Megumi does that in response for their care towards her. Yamato henceforth changes his opinion of her and apologises for having misunderstood her previously. While Mei was on the way home, she overhears two girls talking about going to McDonald’s to try their new product. Upon seeing how close these two girls were, Mei thinks that unlike Megumi who is a hit, Mei is not as sociable and feels calmer being by herself. She believes that Yamato would surely pick the current Megumi especially since she once liked him. Seeing Mei all depressed, Mashimaro tries to console her. As she can’t stop worrying, she was unable to sleep causing her to have dark eye bags. Asami got worried seeing Mei look like that. In order to cheer Mei up, Asami gives Mei a commemorative key she and Nakanishi won during their date in Land (not sure if they meant Disneyland or just a fictional theme park). Asami tells Mei that Nakanishi has also given the same key to Yamato. Mei comments that Land seems to be a popular hangout spot for couples and wonders if it is enjoyable. Asami smiles cheekily and says that Mei is becoming cuter and acting more like a girl lately. Yamato must have also sensed this ‘danger’. However, Mei doubts that such a day will come when Yamato feels that way. Mei feels that she has not changed all this time, always getting depressed over small matters and mulling over negative thoughts whenever she’s by herself.

A customer enters the bakery where Mei’s working at. Because he’s really tall and has this punkish look, the ladies working at the bakery are afraid of him. However, Mei was looking at him with disregarding eyes. The customer approaches Mei to settle the purchase. While she was packing the bread, the key that was hanging out of Mei’s pocket caught his eye. He caught her arm suddenly and exclaimed while staring at the key. Shocked, Mei twisted his wrist in an act of self-defense causing the customer to shriek in pain. Mei apologises as he is after all a customer. He explains that he is a big fan of the theme park and is envious of Mei who has that limited edition key. Hearing that Mei has no special feelings towards the theme park, he demands that she give the key to him but Mei just brushes him away. Curious, one of the girls asks the customer what his occupation was. Disappointed that they think he’s old, he replied that he will be a first year high school student in April and not surprisingly, he will soon be Mei and the girl’s junior (i.e. same school). (His name is Takemura Kai.) When Mei’s friend asks if she and Yamato has any plans to go out during the spring break, Mei replied no because Yamato seems to be busy. After that Mei-initiated-kiss, Mei doesn’t know how to face Yamato, and is starting to feel weird after holding hands with him ever since the time they met up. Mei utters “aren’t we a little too close” but Yamato replies that he just wanted to see if a similar situation (the kiss) would happen again. Embarrassed, Mei blurts out this is why guys are idiots and that it’s disgusting how Yamato looks at her that way. She realized that what she said was too much but it was too late. Yamato, displeased by that comment, makes Mei head home by herself. Realising that it was the first time Yamato let go of her hand, Mei’s heart ached.


Mei, Asami and Aiko are reading the issue that featured Megumi’s interview. In it Megumi confesses that she is fond of someone who is prince-like and is also a model. Asami/Aiko comments that it fits Yamato’s description. Mei reaffirms that Megumi was still in love with Yamato and wonders what’s up with Yamato going to her house. Mei decides to go home and rejects Asami’s offer to walk home with her. Asami wonders if she has been a bother but Aiko feels that that is not the case. Mei must be battling herself and they won’t be able to do anything even if they were there beside her. They should wait for Mei to approach them of her own accord when she wants to talk about it with them. Concerned that Yamato is getting carried away with the recent events, Aiko approached Yamato to explicitly tell him that the 3 of them have seen that interview article and are aware of Yamato going in and out of Megumi’s apartment. She also informs him that Mei has already gone home due to the shock. Yamato declares that there is nothing going on with Megumi, but Aiko replies that the issue here isn’t what the truth is but what’s perceived by that important person. When Aiko puts Yamato in the shoes of Mei, Yamato retorted that he can’t accept such a thing happening. Aiko reminds Yamato that even though Mei looks like that, she knows very little about guys and is the kind that considers every action carefully and seriously when it comes to love. His actions this time have excessively raised the hurdle for Mei. Yamato denies that he did such a thing but Aiko yells at him to tell that to the person herself. Aiko reminds Yamato that being gentle to everyone would cause uneasiness for the girlfriend. After their conversation, Yamato hurries to clear the misunderstanding with Mei. Megumi spots Yamato leaving and reminds him that they have a shoot today. Yamato tells Megumi that he won’t be going as he has something important to settle. On his way to Mei’s house, images of Mei’s face appear continuously and he repeated says sorry in his head. He wonders what kind of face Mei has now. Apparently, Mei had been crying ever since she left school. Mei pushes Yamato away and proclaims that she is sick of love, of how she can only think of Yamato and how weak and selfish she has become. Mei finally speaks her mind regarding all that she was worried about. Yamato assures her she hasn’t changed and it is all his fault that she is feeling this way. He confesses that there was nothing going on between him and Megumi and the visits to her house were just for dinner, nothing else. After the talk with Aiko, Yamato realized and apologises for having acted rashly. Yamato reconfesses that he really likes Mei. Mei too, after much contemplation, concluded that both she and Yamato are still beginners in love.



Translator's Commentary: At least Yamato got his act together at the end. Also, a new character appeared! Will he become a new love contender? And Megumi is still in the race! What else will poor Mei have to endure? TO BE CONTINUED…
