Track 03. 揺れる思い [Jolted Feelings] ;

Continuing from track 2 in Part 1 of the post.

... As Natsuki's about to slap Haruka, Haruka stopped the blow and they decided to continue their fight somewhere else because people were watching. Meanwhile, Akiho and Fuyuka were at the rooftop enjoying each other's company as they were able to understand each other's plights. Akiho pointed out that Fuyuka has to clear things up with Natsuki but Fuyuka replied she's a little scared ... Suddenly they were interrupted by voices in the background. It seemed like Natsuki and Haruka decided to take their 'fight' at the rooftop and their fangirls were following them. Both Fuyuka and Natsuki noticed each other. Natsuki's pissed that it's true that Fuyuka's with Akiho and yelled at her for pestering Fuyuka and told her to leave Fuyuka alone regardless of whatever plan she's up to with She-Panther [Haruka]. Fuyuka tried to explain but Akiho stopped her and stood in front of her. Akiho told Natsuki that it had nothing to do with Haruka ... it's only that she had fallen in love with Fuyuka.

Everyone went, 'EHHHHHH!???!'. 'You like Fuyuka ...? Don't you already have this fella!?', demanded Natsuki, shaking the frozen Haruka lol. Akiho calmly explained that it's true but from the start it's been Haruka who's been closing after her. She added that Fuyuka and Haruka's different, Fuyuka's more like a girl, more matured, understanding, has boobs lol, gentle and mild, to say that she changed her feelings, it's not unexpected. Natsuki had no choice but to agree while Haruka was whinning out for Akiho lol. Besides, Akiho said that she heard that both Fuyuka and Natsuki had not 'consummate' their relationship yet so it's not of Natsuki's business that she's courting Fuyuka. Taunting Natsuki, Akiho added that if she likes someone she will make her hers quickly, just like this ... making her purpose clear of kissing Fuyuka. Just then, Reiko-sensei and Ayano-sensei were alerted by the noises the fangirls made, found out that Haruka and Natsuki were in a 'fight' at the rooftop and went to stop them.

Natsuki lunged forward and slapped Akiho, declaring that Fuyuka's hers and she would never give Fuyuka to Akiho. Haruka's pissed that Natsuki slapped her Akiho as Natsuki pulled Fuyuka towards her ... then Fuyuka punched Natsuki lol. Fuyuka yelled out that Akiho's fault but all because of Natsuki's wishy-washy attitude that she couldn't figure out what's Natsuki's feelings and had to ask for Akiho's advices. Understanding the situation, Reiko-sensei and Ayano-sensei sent the watching fangirls away and closed the door. Akiho told Fuyuka not to get so worked up and explained she had did the earlier action on purpose, but then the truth's out, Natsuki IS in love with Fuyuka. Akiho continued to question why Natsuki kept her distance from Fuyuka if so. Natsuki explained that she used to fall in love with one of the screaming fangirls of hers, the girl also replied that she likes her so Natsuki thought that they could go out seriously together.

But just when the girl knew that Natsuki's serious, she became afraid and avoided Natsuki all together. From then, Natsuki realized that people's 'like' has different levels. After that, meeting Fuyuka, from the start Natsuki thought that Fuyuka's cute and wanted to tease her. As time pass, as they hung out together more, the 'like' became more ... But Natsuki knew that Fuyuka had only began healing from a previous 'scare' and if she were to be passionate in her actions, she feared she might be hated by Fuyuka and was confused. Fuyuka's touched by Natsuki's words and thought to herself that the more each other like each other, the more insecured they become and fear to touch each other. They were harbouring the same feelings but both afraid to move a step. Akiho grasped that everything's fine now and told Haruka to leave them. Haruka's still confused about everything lol and asked Akiho what's all about.

Akiho explained that the Big Bad Wolf fell seriously in love with Little Red Riding Hood and thus couldn't bare to 'eat' her up ... something like that lol. Haruka still don't get it lol. Akiho then apologized to Haruka about scaring her that she likes Fuyuka, Haruka agreed about the scare. Akiho added that but then she trusted Haruka to be understanding about it and assured the only one she likes is Haruka. Haruka's delighted about it and replied that she did trusted Akiho earlier and that's why she's fine lol. Akiho teased Haruka that it doesn't seem so from Haruka's 'stoned' and whinny expressions earlier lol.

Track 04. 不安 [Insecurity] ;

Picking up from the rooftop, Fuyuka apologized to Natsuki and confessed she's afraid too and only merely waited for Natsuki to take action. So then, Fuyuka affirmed to Natsuki she likes her ... and it's the 'carnal desire' kind of 'like' she declared LOL. Fuyuka continued that isn't that desire expected? ... because of 'like', she would want to know everything of Natsuki and to touch her everything ... to the extent of wanting to be one with her and grasping tightly to her side, never letting go. Natsuki smiled and replied that she wanted too. Kissing Fuyuka, Natsuki too confessed she likes Fuyuka just like wanting to be one with her. With their feelings sorted out, they giggled and Fuyuka once again invited Natsuki to her home on Saturday and she's alone at home too. Natsuki happily agreed to go and Fuyuka breathed a sigh of relief that their 'like' were the same.

Fuyuka learnt that although there were many different levels of 'like', one should not be wishy-washy, merely wait and be afraid to make the first step but be able to pick the courage and convey the feelings to the other party. Fuyuka teased Natsuki about looking forward to a 'fun-filling' scene this Saturday and left Natsuki going 'EHHHH!??' probably confused cos she's supposed to be the lead!? LOL. Natsuki even used the more feminine/neutral 'watashi' instead of her boyish 'boku' here lol.

The manga ended more funny, an extract from the first bed scene between Fuyuka and Natsuki on Saturday, Fuyuka surprisingly is the lead [in Yaoi terms, Seme lol] and Natsuki's the bottom, [Uke! lol] held against the bed. Fuyuka was like in 'heh heh heh' mode assuring Natsuki that it's alright because she did some reading and research about it and Natsuki went 'EHHHH!??!', confused lol.

Hope you enjoyed this Drama CD as much as I do, hopefully, more of such Drama CDs in future XD. Cya.
