Recapturing from the previous chapter, Chika was sent home via Touko-sensei's bike. A while later, Touko dropped Chika in front of her house, Chika thanked Touko-sensei for sending her home. Touko happily replied that there's no need for Chika to act so formal with her even though they just met for a day lol. Touko then teased Chika by asking if it's Chika's first time on a bike with another person and that means ... she's Chika's first person isn't it? [LoL, Nice play of words here.] Chika didn't get it at first but when she got it lol, she hollered at Touko-sensei for teasing her.
In her mind, Chika was thinking that her first love is Haruna and she wanted to give all her first times to only Haruna. But she added, she couldn't imagine Haruna riding a motorcycle lol. Touko merely smiled and left. Chika thought about the many incidents that day, riding a motorcycle, been carried like a princess by Touko-sensei ... and Haruna's compliment that she's cute in her summer uniform. She began thinking how she's going to face Haruna the next day, regretting a little for accepting Touko's offer.
- Haruna's Flashback - Haruna's calling out to her senpai [senior] to wait for her. Facing the senpai, Haruna questioned how the senpai felt about her, is it merely an innocent kouhai [junior]? But Haruna's feelings for her senpai's ... before Haruna could continue, the senpai in her dream asked if Haruna wanted to hear her answer and the answer's ...
Haruna started crying out in her sleep and saw Akiho's worried face in front of her and realized she's having a bad dream. Akiho asked if Haruna's alright, Haruna just thanked Akiho and left at that. After Akiho left the room, Haruna cried to herself as she haven't been getting this dream after meeting Chika.
The next day, Akiho met up with the poor Chika who had been suffering from the glares of Touko's fangirls that morning lol. Akiho noticed Chika's more intimate reference to Touko and teased her. Chika then asked about Haruna who was not around, Akiho replied that Haruna had slight headache and would be coming to school later and adviced the worried Chika to probably check out Haruna at lunch time. During homeroom, it was announced that they would be having a cultural ceremony next month and the first year classes would be paired with the second year classes to put up a performance.
Chika and Akiho were delighted because they would paired with Haruna's class. Chiori asked for a volunteer in the class as committee member for the event, noone wanted to do it lol. Touko-sensei tried to get Chika to do it by whispering in her ear that she's the advisor for the selected committee member. Chika was weeping how disconcerting it felt while Akiho was pissed at Touko for teasing Chika.
In a moment of anger, Akiho volunteered to be the committee member and walked to the front. Touko smiled and revealed herself to be the advisor for the selected committee member, earning many protests from the fangirls lol. During lunch time, Chika went to Haruna's classroom to look for her but she wasn't around and was informed by Miyu that Haruna's always went to somewhere else during lunch. Chika happily went to their secret garden to look for Haruna when she saw the figure in a distance and wanted to call out to her.
She noticed that Haruna's crying and so didn't talked to her. As the girls were changing classes, Chika thought to herself that she couldn't forget the lonely expression Haruna's face and that expression was back again. Chika then daydreamed that probably Haruna felt hurt that she's chummy with Touko-sensei and regretted for not talking to Haruna ealier. Chika then decided to explain to Haruna after school then.
After school when Chika went to look for Haruna, Miyu told Chika that she went home after lunch break. Miyu expressed her thanks to Chika for changing Haruna to a more friendly and happy person as compared to last year when they were in the theatre club. Chika was really surprised that Haruna was in a club and felt that she knew nothing much of Haruna at all.
Meanwhile, Akiho and Touko were together for the duties of the cultural ceremony committee member and advisor respectively. Touko with a smile told Akiho that she's also the acting advisor for the library club lol. While walking, Touko teasingly asked Akiho not to display such apparent dislike for her lol. Akiho told Touko that she's not like Chika and wouldn't easily trust such a sly person like Touko.
Touko grinned and praised Akiho for being smart enough to make that judgement. Akiho's pissed that Touko actually admitted and demanded the reason why she's creating trouble for Chika and if it's Touko's sick pleasure to see people suffer. Touko didn't answer Akiho's questions and questioned back Akiho's feelings towards Chika. With that, Touko left, leaving Akiho startled and confused.
The next day, Chika didn't sleep as she was heavy with worries. Just then, Akiho greeted Chika along with Haruna who apologized to Chika for making her worry and with a smile thanked her. Chika was delighted at Haruna's smile and thought to herself happily that it's the usual Haruna! Akiho took in the scene with a envious/sheepish smile and tried to change the subject by telling them that they had decided what performance for their collaboration with the second years.
Chika noticed that Haruna's bag looked heavy, Haruna replied that she's having PE and arts classes so there's more stuff. Chika taking in consideration of Haruna's weak condition, offered to take her bag. When Chika placed her hand on Haruna's, Haruna slapped Chika's hand away while yelling, 'No!'. Both Akiho and Chika were stunned by Haruna's display. Haruna apologized, worked up an excuse of surprise for her behaviour and left.
Staring at Haruna's retreating back, Chika thought to herself that she could chase and chase after Haruna's back but couldn't help but wonder how long is the distance between her and Haruna. - END of Chapter 7 -
Aw man, that was a heavy chapter, Touko revealed herself to be the 'evil villian' her but ... is she really the 'evil' one? How would Chika react to the brush off her first love gave to her? Await Chapter 8 XD.
Sorry for the long [almost a month] wait for Chapter 7 ... lol, I was simply procrastinating again ... sighh. Feeling fucking pissed these few days cos I just realized a few days ago after amazon.com shipped my order that vPOST closed the USA address I placed as my shipping address. I have like totally no idea! Even after I submited my invoice to vPOSTUSA, it's like they didn't even check what I sent to them or didn't bothered to help check that I had placed the old/unusable address.
Maybe, maybe, I could had changed the shipping address on time ... cos it took two days for amazon to process that shipping stuff. Oh well, I emailed them asking what I should do or maybe at least please process my order before they closed their address lol, because I would really really really love to get my stuff before Christmas. Besides, I worry for the Burst Angel Box Set which was at 50% discount!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
Oh well, you can say it's my own mistake that I didn't read the big important thingy for members on their site or what but ... what's done, was done, all I could do is weep, pout and wish for a miracle. It seemed like amazon.com issue a full refund for undeliverable packages ... I reckon that's some kind of consolation in some way, I just want the DVDs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
