wait, his headphones where instantly there the moment he woke up.
Is this... a present?
What is it?
Aw, it's cute.
We're getting our wires crossed here Hitomi.
Ok, now I'm happy too.
Hey Sensei- I got you a present too!
No it wasn't Hitomi - we just got him another silver bracelet.
No prob pal!
Yeah, scolded with boiling water I bet.
Since I don't often show Hitomi's inner dialogue in my LP here is what SHE thinks of the situation. Without me uselessly(?) commentating.
Ah yes. Witty word play is my specialty. << No it isn't.
Wordplay is the best kind of -play... Or wait, was it 'foreplay'?
When you think about it, married life with an otome LI must be damned stressful. These guys will and can at any time dump you for someone else who starts stalking them and buying them presents.
I don't mean Ryu and Miki, but in general. Miki can go the hell away.
She hasn't reached the level of Jerkia, but I'm gonna agree with Hitomi and think that this whole get back together thing's really shady. Also lol at yaoi hands. I'm going to pretend her real reason why she's talking to sensei is that she wants to become a man and for whatever reason Ryu-sensei is the only person she thinks that she can talk to.
That actually makes me kind of sad. NO PITYING THE MIKI (unless you're the Miki of Ohtori Academy, where I do genuinely feel pity for. I mean, your sister gets around and you can't stop seeing how your sister used to be and wish that it would be like old times again.)
Help I am trapped between laughing at this visual pun and groaning at this visual pun.
I'm hungry now :(
Two things came to mind when reading these latest updates:
How thoughtful of Ryotaro to take of his headphones when passing out drunk.
With regards to Miki, we're kinda going on snugglebear's word only. I mean, for all we know his idea that she left Ryotaro because of a richer man is just something he made up to justify her breaking up with his son. But much more importantly, what is with his argument. He said he saw her new boyfriend, and that he couldn't compare to Ryotaro. So obviously, she must have chosen him for his money, since that and looks are all that matters.
Onii-chan is probably comping at the bit to 'talk' to Hitomi and Ryotaro. Those two are gunna get one hell of a Hannibal Lecter.
This is all true. I'm just playing it like Hitomi believes everything he said. We will see how much of it is accurate.
I think dear Hitomi thinks everyone always tells her the truth. She's such a sweet girl, but really, really naïve, especially about people's motives.
One last crazy food event before end game.
Uh... are these made with the spirit of cybering? Cause that's weird.
Do not know if want.
Is you pensive sensei? I bet he is pensive.
But then what will you do?
A delinquent teacher maybe?
All these dream events have taught me is this: If you have a difficult man he WILL CHANGE FOR YOU! Because that's healthy? Right?
Oh! And I'm not sure Sugar Bear was saying that the guy Miki left Sensei for was ugly. Just different. Like pressed shirt, cropped hair different. Being as that he IS so different it would be extra hurtful to Ryutaro.
A couple of small updates:
He is under my sexy sexy Hitomi spell! On a side note: I am almost at Perfect Hitomi.
I gots me a rad Sensei sticker. Which I would not put on my own real life phone... nope. I wouldn't do that. >> Yes I would.
The day after New Years, Hitomi decides to sweep the front step.
Yep, whatchu up to?
Yeah? It's pretty early for that. You're not hung over?
But he can't! That is his life's mission! And more importantly: Where will I buy vegetables!?
What will happen when school opens again?
Let me help! Helpful Hitomi GO!
Then you don't know me very well!
Yesss, perfect excuse to wrap yourself around him instead. MAXIMUM HITOMI COMFORT GO!
Please don't be drowned in a glass of Japanesse Whiskey.
Oh good. You're not dead.
PLEASE DON'T CLOSE!! I LOVE YOUR STORE AND YOUR VEGETABLES AND WALMART IS STUPID AND I HATE IT.
Plus Sensei is here to open the store for you!
And don't die.
Or kill anyone who runs the supermarket across the street, as tempting as it is.
But Sugar Bear, please open the store again in a few days!
Don't you want to care for your customers anymore?
It's tragic, really. The plight of mom and pop businesses always gets me.
Way to break the melancholy. Just let me sit here and weep for another min.
Sensei - Is your dad going to be ok??
OK! So what should I do? I'm in Helpful Hitomi mode and ready to be like super helpful! Tasks - Give me them.
What? But I wanna help!
So... Basically what you're saying is that I'm useless here.
Well, that's nice but I really do want to be helpful. I may.... even get myself into trouble in true otome heroine style if you don't get me something useful to do.
Time to get assaulted by a shampoo salesman!
I CAN DO IT!
ME ME ME! PICK ME! I CAN DO IT!
I CAN DO IT! I AM A CAPABLE HUMAN BEING WHO CAN DO THINGS WITHOUT GETTING MYSELF INTO LIFE THREATENING DANGER!
You are adorable Hitomi.
Me. I did.
But I - I - I didn't really didn't think this through, did I?
That is likely, yes.
That is also likely.
Be right back boss!
Yeah, this isn't going well.
The bike Sensei gave me is pretty rickety. Who can blame him though? He didn't know I'd need one.
Plus it is super cold out. This would be more fun in the Spring.
Shit! I popped a tire. And I scrapped up my arms! Phew! The vegetables are safe though.
I guess I will leave this crap bike here I guess and carry the veggies the rest of the way.
I better get going.
I'm not the best decision maker apparently. I forgot my cell, so I can't call Sensei.
What I love about Hitomi is that pig-headed determination of hers. It's really refreshing that hurt and cold as she might be, she gets the job done and THEN starts feeling everything and blubbering a bit. As far as otome protagonists go, she's refreshing.
Yeah, that would be nice just about now.
What IDEAL timing!
Awww... I'm sorry.
But... I just wanted to be helpful!
You should have given me a stocking job or something.
LET'S DO THIS!
But... I'm probably a pretty heavy load to carry all the way back to the store!
At least I'm like, half the weight I was before but...
Yeah, but that's your job right? To take care of people? Especially students... RIGHT!?
But you do! You jumped all up in my personal business.
I'm not making fun! You are always on my case about what I'm eating and if I'm ok. You must do that with others too right?
You mean... Me?
Not really... No actually.
Back to the store then...
Let's see how Sugar Bear is!
Ha! I love fired up Sensei's Dad!
I keep forgetting how gigantic he is back there!
Problem 1/2 - The Senei's Dad Store Crisis - SOLVED!
Now only - Problem 2/2 - The Miki Go Away Please and Thank You Crisis - yet to be solved.
BOTH! Which is why he is so darling - in spite of his enormous size.
Hitomi promises to continue doing her part too.
That doesn't seem helpful Hitiomi.
ALSO - a new text.
Ok people - leave your theories on how Onii-chan is going to react when he realizes Ryutaro and Hitomi are in love.
We're going to get this again. But after that Onii-chan is going to nom on Hitomi's face.
Onii-chan is a cannibal, no one will ever convince me otherwise.
So hey Ryu-Sensei - Do you like cats?
Could this cat's name be... Hitomi?
Yes, the cat's name IS Hitomi.
But then you'll only have Onii-chan. D:
Hitomi is obviously an excellent protag-chan.
I like her quite a lot. At least she has opinions about things and she doesn't put up with much guff.
Hitomi is a great protagonist.
Even if I wish she was older so there could be more creeping back on Sensei.
And here is where Miki becomes a full out otome antagonist.
One day Hitomi goes to the store to check on Sensei's Dad... Who does she meet instead?
Blaugh! Wher'd you even come from!?
Yes. Yes I am.
Yes. Yes you have.
Don't feed the beast Hitomi.
Ugh. Look at that conniving face.
Devious Miki GO! I guess...
Yeah, and you were REAL supportive back.
I don't see how that is your business.
Stop looking at me like that seriously.
But I -
Why are you getting ME involved with this? That's just fucked up really.
On the other hand this event gets Hitomi thinking...
OR, and call me crazy but, OR we could put those words away forever. Miki is playing dirty here.
She's no Yurika but she still deserves one of these:
On the plane to the school ski trip Hitomi is still worrying about what Miki said.
Probably not well.
Poor Hitomi-chan! Don't worry hun! We will get through this! RESOLVE!
I bet he thinks you're pretty cool too.
Though this begs the question, when DID he feel like a teacher? Seriously?
In this wonderful frame of mind it is time to go skiing! Cause that won't end with drama!
Hitomi is at the top of the slope. She is too nervous to go down, plus she is in a rull shitty mood.
This chapter is entitled: Our first fight.
Psh, whatever. Maybe I'm not a skier ok!?
His mouth says that. But his face says this:
Awww... he is being so sweet here. But Hitomi is in full emotional turmoil mode so here is how it goes:
I'm sorry sensei!
Hitomi proceeds to tell him that she isn't in a bad mood that he is just insensitive.
Well, you aren't really being right now but-
Oh Hitomi! Going for the jugular.
Note: One thing I like about Ryutaro is that while he may come off as "carefree" he is actually the most caring character in the game. He just proves this with action and not words.
Gah! Hitomi - Let him be understanding!
Ah love. It makes you crazy!
Then Hitomi just takes off.
To be continued...soon.
Well kind of but...
Yeah that. Exactly that.
So Hitomi sits in silence for a while, to think.
But Hitomi decides that she doesn't want to see Ryutaro right now. She doesn't know how she will act or what she will say, which is fair.
Cue Ryutaro's face -
Hitomi gives him the silent treatment...
"Hey!" he says.
Okay. I guess.
(Gah! I want to say I'm sorry so BAD!!!)
Oh trouble making Hitomi. First you almost drown, THEN you almost die trying to deliver vegetables and now this. What's next are you just going to run into traffic?
I spose so.
After all that Hitomi finally decides she has to come out with the truth about what Miki told her.
I love how it took me until this post to actually get the joke.
Normally this kind of Protag-chan behavior would annoy me, but Hitomi's awareness of her irrational attitude makes it kind of cute.
