Strawberry On the Shortcake

S.O.S




Strawberry On the Shortcake cũng là tựa gốc của bộ phim. Nó có nghĩa là quả dâu tây trên mẫu bánh kem – món ăn mà 2 nhân vật nữ chính rất thích, nhưng nếu bạn tinh í, ‎bạn sẽ nhận ra rằng ghép các chữ cái đầu của tựa phim lại với nhau, bạn sẽ có được thông điệp của các nhà làm phim gửi gắm: S.O.S. Vậy tại sao lại là S.O.S?
Bộ phim ,mang 1 không khí u uất, quái lạ. Không có những bộ quần áo thời trang, đắt tiền, không có những cảnh quay lăng mạn, ngọai cảnh hút hồn người, nhưng bộ phim vẫn sẽ níu chân bạn, bắt mắt bạn dán chặt vào màn h́nh mà không thể rời ra. Bộ phim can đảm phơi bày hết thế giới t́nh cảm muôn màu muôn vẻ, những thay đổi trong tâm sinh lí của tuổi mới lớn, t́nh yêu, và cả t́nh dục. Nếu bạn đă từng say mê Dawson’ creek, tôi cảm đoan bạn không thể bỏ qua câu chuyện về 4 người bạn Manato (Hideaki Takizawa), Tetsuya (Kubozuka Yosuke), Yui và Sawamura.
Nhạc phim của Strawberry On the Shortcake là bài hát S.O.S nổi tiếng của ABBA. Tôi xin không bật mí về cốt truyện và diễn biến của bộ phim. Các bạn hăy t́m xem và cảm nhận nó bằng cách riêng của các bạn nhé.

Opening Song: Chiquitita bởi ABBA
Lyric:

Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love's a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Ending Song: S.O.S. bởi ABBA
Lyric:

Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find
I tried to reach for you, but you have closed your mind
Whatever happened to our love?
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

You seem so far away though you are standing near
You made me feel alive, but something died I fear
I really tried to make it out
I wish I understood
What happened to our love, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
And the love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

eien no kataomoi

~ everlasting unrequited love ~

Irie Manato stares at the books lined up on the shelves in front of his eyes. Slowly, he reaches out for a math guide book & ruffles through the pages. Warily looking about, he sees the owner with a customer "Thank you very much." Staring back at the book in his hands & thinks "Do it! Do it!" Swallowing, he slowly unzips his bag "Don't be afraid of such a little thing like this!" Plucking up his courage, he starts to slip in the book into his bag when the owner calls out "Hey!" Startled, Manato drops the book onto the floor. Turning around, he sees the owner telling some kids reading "Don't read here! If you want to buy it first!" In a panic, Manato dashes out of the book store.....

Running & panting, Manato finally stops over a bridge, looking out into the water. Breathing heavily, Manato turns back & slides to his heels, sitting down leaning against the rails "I'm useless..." Suddenly a voice calls out "Hey!" Manato looks up through his fogged up glasses & sees a girl dressed in a red coat running towards him. Wiping his glasses with his fingers, he points to himself when she reaches him "You're calling me?" She smiles "Yes." Looking a little wary, Manato gets to his feet "What?" "You forgot something." "Eh?" Unzipping her coat, she takes the math book out & gives it to him "Here." Manato stares at it "Ah, that's not mine....." but she smiles mysteriously "I know. You were about to steal it, weren't you? But then you failed." Manato looks at her "You....." "I saw you. So I stole it for you instead." "For me...." "Aren't I something? Here." Cheerfully, she puts it into Manato's bag. Manato gives her a strange look & she frowns "Ah, now you're thinking that here's a cute girl but kind of strange." Manato, tilts his head, unable to reply & she smiles "I'm kidding! Actually I bought that book, look, I even have the receipt." Giving him the receipt, she adds "I only wanted to see your look of shock." Manato finally asks "Why did you do that?" "I feel the same way." "The same?" "I'm bored." "I'm not really...." "Feeling fed up, just wondering if there was anything interesting to do...the suspense of being a pickpocket, heart pounding...." Manato stares at her in silence & then glances at his watch "It's time for tutor class." Picking up his bag, he starts to walk away when she calls out "Hey, what color do you think the next car that comes by will be?" Manato turns back "I'm sorry but...." The girl ignores him "I think it's red. What about you?" Manato grunts & she pouts "Say something." Manato frowns "Probably gray." She smiles "Great, let's start the game." & walks to the side pavement. Manato mumbles "I'm going..." Looking out along the street, she says "Whoever's right has to jump out onto the road." "Eh?" "If it's red, I'll jump. If it's gray, you jump." Manato laughs "Don't be silly." & turns to leave. She watches him with a smile & then gets ready, red sandals on her feet. A red car passes by Manato, suddenly screeching to a halt. Manato freezes. Behind him a red sandal goes flying into the air, landing on the road. Manato mutters to himself in shock "No way! There's something wrong with her, I don't know anything! It's got nothing to do with me!" Without turning back to look, he starts running off, scared. However, conscience calling to him, Manato stops & slowly starts to turn around......

Manato, alone, walking among the sea of students heading for school.....

it's suppose to be the 21st century now

why I say 'suppose' is that

the way I was at that time

I felt no sense of reality

I didn't know what was real or what wasn't

that's why I will never forget you

because you were the one that saved me

I changed after I met you...

Manato in class, stares out the window & looks at the school gates. No one is there......

look at me,

I was a coward & all alone

the way I was back then....

In the school track & field grounds, Sawamura Haruka works out, practicing her sprints. Queuing up for lunch, Mizuno Taeko says "I thought you quit." Haruka replies "I did, but if I don't work out I don't feel good. & I can't sleep either." "So you're the healthy living type." "I am not." "Hey, there's a get together this weekend, come out once in a while....." "I pass." Suddenly Manato dashes in between them "Ah, sorry." In a rush he picks up the different kinds of breads & sandwiches "Where's the toasted bread? It's sold out! I'm going to be in trouble." Looking & seeing one in Haruka's hands, Manato asks "Can I have that?" Hesitating, Haruka finally nods "ok." Taeko however stops her "Stop it, you're being really thick skinned!" but Haruka tells her "It's ok." giving it to him. Manato gratefully takes it "Thank you." Shoving his way to the top of the queue, he pays the lady "Excuse me." "Yes, thank you." Taeko stares at Manato with a pout "What a pain." while Haruka looks on, not saying anything....

Armed with goodies, Manato hurries back to a club room where four of his classmates are waiting for him "You're back! What took you so long?!" Manato quickly apologizes "I'm sorry, there were a lot of people..." One of the guys whacks him on the head with rolled up paper "Don't make excuses!" The guys sit down & grab at the breads "I'm hungry! Where's my egg sandwich? I'll swap with you..." Manato looks on, gingerly says "Uhm, it's 2,462 yen." The others react indignantly "What?! It's your treat!" Manato looks surprised "Eh?" One of them gets to his feet & glares at him "Say that again?!" Afraid, Manato backs down "Of course it's a treat, I just wanted to tell you how much it was...." "Trying to scare us?" Manato sheepishly smiles, nodding, scared......

In the counselor's room, Mariko, the English teacher, sits across the table from Manato, looking at his records "Recently your grades have dropped drastically, especially in science & math....& chemistry....." Manato however, pays more attention to Mariko's lingerie peeping out from under her vest. Mariko looks at him & Manato quickly removes his attention from her chest & looks down at the floor. Mariko tells him "If you don't try harder, you'll have to change your applications." Manato says dejectedly "Does it make any sense to try?" Eh?" "What I'm saying is, there's no more lifetime employment anymore, grades don't really matter too much either. Rather than....." Mariko interrupts "Irie-kun." "Yes?" "That's enough. Study harder." Obediently, Manato nods "I will." Mariko gets to her feet, keeping the documents. Manato looks surprised "We're done?" It's Mariko's turn to look surprised "Eh?" Manato smiles & shakes his head, taking his bag & leaves "Bye." "Bye." Left alone, Mariko gives a heavy sigh & looks sadly through the blinds, out the window.....

Manato heads down to the shoe lockers, muttering "I wonder....for a teacher to wear lingerie like that....." As he takes out his shoes to change, Saeki Tetsuya comes by to do the same thing "Hi." Manato nods politely "You came for class today?" Saeki replies "Yes, I was resting in the school infirmary." "Are you alright?" Manato asks, using polite Japanese. Saeki looks at him "You don't have to use polite Japanese with me. We're classmates after all, Orie-kun." Manato replies "I'm Irie." still being extremely polite. Saeki looks amused "I'm been held back two years already." Manato asks "What's wrong with you?" Saeki puts his hand on his chest "Here." Manato looks shocked "Your heart?" Saeki saunters up & whispers into Manato's ear "Lovesickness." Coolly walking back to his locker, he takes out a stack of love letters left for him by other girls. Manato looks shocked & envious "Wow." Saeki says "Bye bye..." & leaves. Manato talks to himself "Lovesickness...what a prig...." As he bends down to put his shoes back into the locker, Manato spots a letter inside. Taking out the blue envelope, he sees it addressed to 'Irie Manato-sama'. Manato stares at it in shock "You're kidding...." looking around warily.....

Sitting on the ledge of a water fountain, Manato stares at his watch 6.08pm. Slowly, he pulls out the letter from his pocket & opening it, stares at the words inside "I'll be waiting for you at the fountain in front of the station at 5pm". Suddenly, someone in a red coat comes running by & in a flash, snatches the letter out from his hands. It's the same girl he met before. She looks at it "What's this? A love letter? "I'll be waiting for you at the fountain in front of the station at 5pm." Manato quickly gets to his feet "Give it back!" but she spins away "But it's past 6 already." "Give it back!" Manato grabs it back from her. She smiles "So you've been stood up!" Manato sits back down "No." "No?" "You need someone to stand you up, but I don't have anyone." "You don't? Did you write that yourself then?" "What I mean is, it's just someone making fun of me. It's just another prank." "So you're being bullied in school?" Manato nods "Yeah." "What do you mean 'yeah', isn't it tough on you?" "As long as I playact...." "Playact?" "I'm just playacting a kid who's being bullied. Although they're the one's bullying me, the script depends on me." She nods "Hmmm..." Manato looks at her "Do you understand?" She shakes her head "No I don't. Come on, let's play another game." "You'll just break the rules again." "I did not break any rules. This jumped in my place that's all." She kicks off a sandal towards Manato. Manato gets to his feet as she hops over towards him, steadying herself holding his shoulders as she puts the sandal back on. Manato asks "It doesn't matter but just who are you anyway?" "What do you mean who I am?" "No, just that it's such a coincidence meeting you again." "If meetings are coincidences, then not meeting are also coincidences." Manato nods "Hmmmm..." She asks "Do you understand?" Manato shakes his head "No I don't." As he walks off, she says "Are you going home already?" "Yeah, I've got to study." "What we talked about just now...." "Eh?" "If that script has already been written by you, how does it end?" "I haven't thought about it yet." She puts her hands on his shoulders & half whispers into his ear "Then do it." Manato looks at her "Do it?" "There are a lot of kids who are bullied end up killing themselves." "I didn't say I wanted to kill myself." "That's why I'm saying to do it to those guys." "I'll think about it." Manao walks off as she stares at him, smiling mysteriously.....

Coming home & opening the gate, Manato flinches & falls to the ground when the neighbor's dog scares him. Haruka comes out "Come on, let's go." Taking the leash, she brings the dog out for a run. Scrambling to his feet, Manato starts to say "Thanks for the toasted bread today....." but Haruka ignores him, walking down the flight of stairs. However at the bottom, she turns back & stares at Manato going into his house.....

Turning on the light in his room, tossing his bag onto the bed, Manato slides to the floor, leaning against the bed. Slowly, he takes the letter out from his pocket. Squishing it, he tosses it into the trashcan but misses. Picking it up & unfolding it, he spreads it out on his desk & looks at it. Opening a drawer, he puts the note in & closes it....

Mariko shuts the blinds & turns around, looking at Manato. She unbuttons her jacket "You're interested, aren't you." Manato, sitting at the table, looks surprised "Eh? What in?" Taking off her jacket, Mariko says "Don't play dumb", going over & sits on the table in front of him. Shocked, Manato mutters "Sensei, what are you doing?" Taking his hand, Mariko puts it on her breast. Manato looks away uneasily, muttering "This isn't good." Mariko asks "How is it?" "How what?" "How does it feel?" "Soft." "What are you going to do?" "Do?" Mariko sits on his lap "What you're going to do next?" "Do next?" "Go on..." "No...ah, well...." Mariko lifts his chin & moves to kiss him.....

Manato wakes up with a start, sitting upright in bed, breathing heavily. Feeling odd, he looks under the covers & grimaces.....

(-= Cj =- oops, a wet dream, haha!)

Manato sits on the floor, glumly staring at the dryer, watching the laundry tumbling dry. His father suddenly walks in, startling Manato "Morning, you're really early this morning." A little embarrassed, Manato asks "You're working on a Sunday Dad?" Shaving, he replies "Yes. Could you bring in the newspaper?" Manato nods....

Muttering "It's cold....." & shivering, Manato goes outside to take the newspaper. Haruka's dog next door barks at him, startling Manato & he grumbles "Shut up!"

At the breakfast table, Irie reads the papers "Another high school kid killing someone...sudden rage? They just don't think....." Manato, chewing on some toast, mutters "They don't feel any sense of reality, that's all." Shocked, his father stares at him "You...." Quickly, Manato replies "Don't look at me like that! I'm talking about them, not me." "Of course! By the way, what we talked about before...." "What about?" "I meant...." "You getting married again?" "Yes." "Well, I don't have anything to say. I'm just another person that's all." "How can you say that? We're going to live together under the same roof. We have to get along...." "Sure. I'll just think of her has the housekeeper...." Irie gets to his feet & Manato hurriedly adds "I'm just kidding! It's a joke!" Irie lets him off & leaves for work "I'm going." Left alone, Manato nonchalantly takes another bite of his toast......

At her apartment, Mariko corrects a test paper. Saeki asks "How many marks did I get?" "96." "No way!" "Two careless mistakes." "Can't you give them to me?" "Nope." Saeki retorts "Stingy." lighting up a cigarette. Mariko looks at him "Hey, don't smoke." Saeki merely replies "I'm 20 already." Mariko gives in, getting to her feet "Then quit messing around & graduate." "I would like to if I could." "Because you're not feeling well?" "Yes, that's it." "You haven't attended enough days at school?" "Yes." Mariko reaches out to tap him on the head "Idiot." However Saeki catches her hand "I'm smart aren't I?" Pushing her down, he moves to kiss her. Just then the doorbell rings & Mariko quickly pushes him away. Saeki grumbles "Ouch! That's mean!" Mariko answers the door "I'm coming!" Hearing some voices saying "Hello!", Mariko opens the door to see Haruka & Taeko waiting outside. Taeko says "Haruko said to come over to visit." Haruko quickly adds "That's a lie! It was you!" Mariko hastily replies "I see, uhm, could you give me a minute? The place is a mess." Quickly, she shoves Saeki's shoes out of sight with her feet. Taeko assures her "It's ok with us...." but Mariko insists "Please wait as second..." closing the door. Saeki asks "Who is it?" Hurrying inside, Mariko grabs him "Shhhh! It's Sawamura & Mizuno!" "What are they doing here?" "There's no time for that!" "I'm your student too, there's nothing to be flustered about." Putting signs of having someone in her apartment out of sight, Mariko replies "Even then, we'll be asking for trouble!" "I don't mind." "But I do!" Hurrying to the veranda, she looks out in a panic. Saeki smiles "It's the second floor." Looking around, Mariko stares at the closet "Ah!" Saeki looks at her, eyes widening "What do you mean 'ah'?!"

Putting on the kettle to boil, Mariko says "I'll make some tea." Haruka replies "It's not necessary." However Taeko says "I'll like milk in mine please." Haruka looks at her in surprise "Milk?" "Yes, I want my bust to get bigger so I'm drinking loads of milk in my tea everyday!" "You're kidding!" The closet door slides open as Saeki's listening to the conversation. Taeko says "Sensei, you smoke?" Mariko looks at the ashtray nervously "Eh? Ah, sometimes when I'm in a bad mood, I'll just smoke one." Quickly coming up with an excuse. Inside the closet, Saeki grins. Taeko says "So you get into bad moods too. Do you have a boyfriend?" Opening up the doors to the veranda, Mariko replies evasively "I guess I'm not destined to have one." Taeko laughs "You're kidding! But all the guys in school have crushes on you, dreaming of having sex with you." Mariko gives an embarrassed laugh "No such thing!" Haruka adds "Are you being too idealistic?" "Right, or maybe the age gap too wide?" Mariko quickly replies "Eh? No, no such thing, someone younger than I am....." "Ah, you prefer the gentlemen with graying hair?" Mariko nods "Yes, yes....someone older...." Taeko asks "Ah, could I use the bathroom?" "Yes sure, it's over there." Mariko says to Haruko "The tea will be ready soon." Uneasily, Haruko tells her "Actually I wanted to come alone." "Did you have something you wanted to talk about?" "Well, yeah...." Suddenly Taeko comes back & interrupts "Hey, there's someone strange outside." Haruka & Mariko get up to look & Saeki finally slides the closet door open again, sighing.....

Peeping outside, Taeko sees someone wearing a hooded jacket taking a lacy bra from the washing machine "Ah!" Haruka asks "What is it?" Taeko shouts "It's a lingerie thief!" "What?!" Mariko tries to stop her "It's dangerous! We'll call the police instead!" However, Taeko hurriedly assures her "It's ok, I'll be careful." Haruka quickly puts on her shoes & goes after her "Taeko!" Mariko calls out "Sawamura-san!" but Haruka runs off after Taeko.....

The thief runs off down the side of the waterway with Taeko & Haruka hot on his tails. Taeko finally gives up, panting "I can't run anymore!" However, still fit from running, Haruka continues chasing the guy. Under a bridge, the thief finally trips & falls. Having caught up with him, Haruka says "Return it!" However, the guy doesn't reply, scrambling to his feet to escape. However, Haruka grabs him & he tumbles to the ground. Haruka stares in shock "Irie-kun?" Lying on the ground, Manato doesn't say anything. Taeko finally catches up with them "Did you get him?" At the sound of her voice, Manato gets up & quickly runs off. Taeko yells "He's running away again! Hey, doesn't that look like Irie?" Haruka shakes her head & starts walking away but Taeko is convinced "No way! It's him! That's sick!"

Ending up at the bridge, Manato stares at the water below. Slowly, he steps onto the rails & stands up. Spreading his arms wide, he closes his eyes & leans over.....

The cars go by, bringing Manato back to the present, leaning over the rail, staring at the water. Suddenly he hears a voice "So you're thinking of killing yourself?" Turning around, he sees the girl in the red coat walking up to him "So the ending of the script is that the kid who's bullied ends up killing himself? How boring." Manato steps back onto the ground "It's not that simple." She stares at him & spots the bra sticking out of Manato's pocket & pulls it out "What's this?" Manato quickly tries to grab it back "Ah, no...." but she flings it about out of his reach "Ah, so you like to dress up as a girl?" Manato replies "No way...." "Then just relieving stress from school? If that's the case I might understand." "I stole it. That's despicable, isn't it." "That's the worst." Shoving it back into his pocket, she says "It's bad to steal. Just tell me, I'll lend you mine instead." Manato looks at her in surprise "Eh?" "I don't think it's that bad to have an interest in lingerie." "Why not?" "It just means that you've got a rich imagination, that's all." Manato smiles "You're weird." "Compared to who?" "Ah, well, I mean...." "Thinking about it, everyone's weird, living everyday in total boredom." Looking sad all of a sudden, she stares out over the water. Manato looks at her "You don't want to live anymore?" She smiles "I don't know." Manato doesn't answer, just silently stands side by side next to her, staring out towards the water.....

Coming into school & taking his shoes out of the locker, a note falls to the ground. Manato picks it up & opens it, reading the words "I'm sorry." Giving a sigh, Manato mutters "Enough already....." As he enters the classrooms, his classmates pounce on him, pushing him onto the ground, tugging his jacket off.......

In the music room, Saeki plays a tune on the piano. Listening, Mariko asks "You wrote that tune?" Saeki gives her a glance & continues playing. Mariko adds "It's beautiful." Saeki stops "Even an English teacher can tell?" "Ah, talking that way, & here I was praising you." "That's not praise, just words. Which part & what's nice about it? Which phrase? & is that a personal feeling? Or what?" Nonchalantly, Saeki walks up to her & puts his hands on her hips. Pondering, Mariko replies "Let's see....." Saeki asks "If someone says you're beautiful, where does he mean? Your eyes? Your lips? Or the way you speak? You'd ask all of this wouldn't you?" Mariko smiles back "Not really. I'd be happy if someone said I was beautiful." Saeki frowns playfully "You're naive." "& you're thinking that I'm an idiot." "That's what I like about you." Saeki puts his hand on her chin & turns her face towards his own. The chime sounds & Mariko quickly says "Ah, it's time." Saeki pouts "You're evading the subject..." Mariko smiles "So what are you going to do? You're not coming to class again?" "Ah well, sometimes I guess I should attend class & listen to horrible English." "Look who's talking, you don't speak it any better having lived overseas." Saeki sarcastically adds in an exaggerated tone "This is a pen", following after her......

Mariko walks into the class to find everyone talking loudly "What's going on? Class is about to start." Everyone starts moving back to their seats & Saeki enters the classroom by the back door to see a bunch of guys huddling at the back. Mariko, noticing, approaches "Stop messing around & get back to your seats." They scramble back to their seats & Mariko, noticing someone in a girl's uniform, looks on in surprised. That person turns around & it's Manato, hair tied up & make-up horrendously drawn on his face. The whole class bursts out laughing, & a chuckle escapes Saeki. The boys snigger "Sorry sensei, we were just having fun." One of them by Manato gives him a kick "Hey Irie!" Looking at Mariko, Manato asks "Do I like pretty?" Everyone cracks up & one of them calls out "What an idiot!" Mariko orders "Keep it quiet!" Mariko tells him "Go & get changed!" but Manato plays along with the guys, pouts "Don't want to, this is my uniform!" Mariko gives in "Then just go get that make-up off & come back." Manato grins "ok." & waves daintily to the class. Saeki smiles, Haruka turns back looking troubled as Mariko says "Let's start the class. Saeki-kun, take your seat." Saeki mimics Manato "ok."

Manato stares at himself in the mirror "I look kinda cute." Taking off his glasses, he starts to wash off the make-up. Suddenly, he looks back up at the mirror, staring at his reflection, pain in his eyes......

At a club, Haruka looks at everyone dancing, feeling out of place. A couple of guys come up to her "Haruka, let's dance." "I don't know how to..." "It's ok, you'll learn." However, Haruka moves away "I wonder where Taeko is..." & runs off looking for her. Going up a flight of stairs into a different part of the club, she finds couples kissing. Taeko, in the arms of another guy, looks up "What's wrong?" "I'm going to leave." The guy gets up "Why? What are you saying?" Haruka walks off but Taeko tells him "Forget it, she's just being a goody two shoes....."

At the Irie house, Manato & his father are in the living room with a guest. Irie says "Until the junior high school reunion last year, how many years had it been?" Mizawa replies "About 20." Manato asks "What happened then?" Irie asks "What do you mean?" "Were you aware of each other in junior high?" Mizawa smiles "No, we hardly ever spoke." Irie however admits "I was, very much, that's why I couldn't speak to her." "Stop kidding!" "I'm serious!" Manato smiles "Dad's really taken with you. I understand cause you're really beautiful." Irie adds "She is." Embarrassed, Mizawa tells them "Stop it already, the both of you." Manato politely gets to his feet "I've got to go upstairs." Irie looks at his son "It's still early." Mizawa however, says "It's ok. You've got to study haven't you? It must be hard." Manato nods "Then, please take your time." Manato closes the glass door & starts upstairs. Irie grumbles "What's the matter with him." "It's ok, it'll take time for him to get used to the idea." "He just shy but I'm sure he's happy inside." "I hope so." "Ah, I'll show you the kitchen, I wonder if it's ok." "It's alright." "Ah, the dining table you picked, I've ordered it." "Great." Halfway up the stairs, Manato looks at them, feeling very much a stranger in his own home......

Haruka comes home muttering a tired "I'm home." Shocked to see her younger brother sitting on the stairs waiting for her, she asks "Satoru? What are you doing there?" "I'm hungry." Putting some spaghetti to boil on the stove, Haruka asks "Where's Mom?" Satoru, cleaning up the bottle of alcohol & glasses from the table, replies "She's gone to bed. She was drinking earlier." "Where's Dad?" "He's gone out again." "Did they fight again?" Satoru nods "Uhm." "I'm sorry, leaving you alone." "I'm fine. I'm used to it already." "I'll be done really quick, sorry." "It's ok." Tears start falling down her face as Haruka says again "I'm sorry....."

In his room, Manato stares at the note in his hands "I'm sorry." Pulling out his drawer, he takes out the previous letter & stares at them. The door suddenly opens & Manato hurriedly hides the letters away "You could knock." His father tells him "I'm going to send her back to the hotel." "Oh." "She'll be moving in the day after tomorrow." Irie puts his hand tentatively on Manato's shoulder "Please get along with her." Manato replies a tad irritably "I know." "Then I'm going." Manato looks at the opened door & gets up, slamming it shut. The phone rings & he picks it up "This is Irie..." Not getting an answer, he adds "If you're looking for my father he's gone out....." Manato give the phone a strange look & then hears someone say "Hello?" "Who's speaking?" "It wasn't me." "Eh?" "The one who told everyone about sensei's lingerie...." Manato turns & going to the window, draws the curtains open. Haruka in her room, looks back at him "I told Taeko to keep it a secret but she thought it would be fun." "It's ok, it's the truth in any case. & no one made a police report either." "I know." "Know what?" "The reason you stole the lingerie." "The reason? I didn't really have any reason....." "It's your mother, isn't it." "Eh?" "Because your mother left, you're wondering.....that's why it's not something perverted...." Manato chuckles. Haruka asks "Why do you laugh?" "Because it's funny. Why would I be interested in someone who's run off with another man?" "You're lying." "It's the truth." "You're the same as always, Sawamura." "The same as always?" "Really serious." "I am not! I went clubbing tonight." "You're kidding!" "No, it's the truth. I even had a drink." "Eh?" "It's been a long time since we drew the curtains back & talked like this." "Yeah, I guess so." "Yes, we used to get along really well when we were kids, we'd talk like this all the time." "Things changed after my mother left. After that Dad didn't talk with the neighbors anymore." "My home isn't any better." "No way, but you guys are...." "No. I think my Dad's having an affair. My parents might even get divorced." "Oh...." "If that happens I was thinking that we wouldn't get a chance to talk like this any more. I'm sure we'll move." "I see." "I wonder why." "Eh?" "They love each other & get married. & then slowly stop loving each other...." "Don't think about it too much." "Eh?" "It's bad for your skin." Haruka smiles "I guess you're right. I'm glad. You're the real Irie-kun right now." Manato looks surprised "Hm?" Haruka looks at him "You're not wearing those glasses." Manato is stunned into silence. Haruka adds "I know about it. There's nothing wrong with your eyes, is there...." Manato stares at her & then suddenly draws the curtains shut. Manato says "I'm hanging up." Haruka quickly answers "Wait! The shoe lockers....." However, Manato tells her "Bye." & hangs up abruptly on her. Haruka mutters "The letters....."

Outside, Haruka's dog barks seeing someone in a red coat walk up the stairs to the Irie home "Shhhhh! Anything interesting happening? You look kind of bored too." Curiously, she stares up into the house.....

Sitting alone on the roof top of the school, Saeki sees the guys from his class bullying Manato "Irie-kun, we've got a favor to ask. Could you lend us some money?" Manato looks back at the guys around him "Money? I already give you my tutor fees every month." "Just a little...." "Even if you say that, I know. I don't have the money you want. I could steal it from home but my father is really sharp. He's the type that knows immediately if I've stolen from his wallet in the middle of the night. I guess that must be the reason Mom left." "What are you muttering about?!" "What I'm saying is that if I do any more than that, it'll be a risk. If my father finds out, he'll come looking for answers. If that happens I'll have to tell him about you. Then my father would most likely come to school. You guys would be suspended from school, or worse, expelled." "Are you trying to threaten us instead?" "I'm just thinking about you. You don't want something like that to happen just before graduation, do you?" The boys exchange looks, not answering. Manato nods "I'm glad you understand" & saunters off. However, the guys pull him back & twist his arm behind him "Who do you think you are?!" Manato grimaces in pain "Ouch! You're getting violent!" "We just want some money, lend it to us or you know what's going to happen to you." Manato nods "ok, if you give me an IOU in return...." "Quit fooling around!" Saeki gets to his feet, watching them beat up on Manato. A knife falls out of Manato's pocket as the guys snigger "You're trying to scare us?! Who're you trying to fool?!" Suddenly, Manato turns around, the knife in his hands. The guys stop laughing as Manato gets to his feet.....

At the other corner of the roof above them, Saeki scribbles "KNIFE" onto the score sheet with him......

Manato stares at the knife in his hands "I got this by mail order." He starts walking towards the guys who are beginning to panic "Hey, he's gone crazy!" Manato smiles "It just arrived yesterday." The four guys take to their heels & scramble off. However, one of them trips & falls to the ground. He looks up at Manato who smiles, approaching slowly "What a suspense!" Frightened, the guy tells him "Stop kidding around!" Manato stares at him, as if in a trance "Kidding? Who's kidding about what?" Manato reaches out & holds the knife against his face. Trembling, the guy pleads "Stop it! Please stop! Please stop!" Inside him, Manato hears a voice telling him "Do it!"" Slowly, Manato raises his hand, about to plunge it into the guy "Do it!" About to bring his hand down, someone suddenly reaches out from behind & grabs his wrist. Saeki coolly says "That's enough." & then with a smile, tells the scared classmate "Don't tell anyone about this. & tell the others to keep their mouths shut too." Scrambling to his feet, the guy takes flight....

Slowly, Saeki takes the knife from Manato's hand. Manato slumps to the ground, leaning heavily against the rail. Folding the knife back, Saeki tells him "Alright, take a deep breath." Manato looks at him "Eh?" "Like this...." Saeki lifts his arms & takes a deep breath. Manato closes his eyes & breaths deeply. Saeki says "One more time....." This time, Manato follows Saeki's actions, lifting his arms & taking a deep breath. Saeki finally asks "Feeling calmer?" Manato nods politely "Ah, yes." Saeki waves the knife "I'm keeping this." & Manato politely replies "Please, go ahead." Saeki smiles "Stop speaking polite Japanese. We're classmates, Irie-kun." With a cool smile, Saeki gets to his feet "Well then, bye." Manato watches Saeki saunter off. Alone & a troubled look on his face, Manato reaches up & takes off his glasses.....

As Haruka comes out of class, Taeko comes running out after her "Will you go out with me?" "Sorry, I've got something to discuss with sensei." "Are you still mad about what happened?" "No." With a smile, Haruka walks off.....

Quietly, the door slides open. Mariko, listening to an English tape with headphones on, doesn't hear. Suddenly, she finds a knife by her face & she jumps in shock. Looking up, she sees Saeki "Idiot! Don't scare me like that!" Saeki pouts "But I wanted to give you a scare." Mariko looks at the knife "What's with that? It's dangerous." "I bought it by mail order." "What for?" "To kill you & then myself." "Why do we have to die?" "Because we're living in sin." Mariko's expression changes & Saeki adds "It's a joke, I'm sorry." "If you want to apologize, then graduate from high school." "If you're willing to forget about him. There's nothing you can do thinking about a person who's dead." Looking out the window through the blinds, Mariko replies "In my heart he's still alive." "Don't you feel lonely that way?" "Sometimes." "Then I won't graduate." "Saeki-kun!" "Cause I don't want you to feel lonely even sometimes. That's why I'll always be with you. I'll stay in school forever." Saeki puts his arms around her. Mariko says "I'll become an old lady." "It's fine." "& I may never love you." Saeki nods, not saying anything. Mariko asks "Won't you feel lonely then?" Saeki quips "Not as long as you recharge my batteries in a while...." hugging her. Suddenly, Mariko sees someone & pushes him away "Sawamura-san?" Haruka, quickly replies "I'm sorry, I knocked but...." Hurriedly, Haruka slides the door shut with a bang & leaves. Mariko sighs "She saw us..." Saeki grins unaffectedly "She saw us....she won't say anything." "That's not the problem. I'm sure she wants to discuss something, she must have something she's troubled over." "If that's the case, I know." "What?" "Sex!"

Haruka hurries down the stairs & stops by the window, muttering to herself "How come I keep seeing those kinds of things......"

At the bridge, Manato stares out unseeingly over the water. Suddenly, he hears someone call out "Were you waiting?" Manato slowly turns around & looks across the road. The girl in the red coat smiles "Were you waiting for me?" Crossing the road, she asks "Are you feeling sentimental today too?" Manato turns back & looks over the water, not replying. Reaching him, she asks "Did you still lingerie again?" Manato quietly replies "No." "You didn't? Then anything interesting happen?" "I don't know if it's interesting or not." "What is it? Tell me." "I bought a knife by mail order." "A knife?" "I don't know what I bought it for. When I realized it, it was in my pocket." "& then?" "On the roof top of the school, in front of those guys, the knife fell out." "Those guys....the guys who were bullying you?" "Yes." "Did you do it? No way! I was only talking about it jokingly. You didn't really....what happened after that?" "I was stopped." "You mean you didn't do it? How boring."

Quietly, Manato says "I told you before didn't I? That I had written a script & am merely playacting another 'me'." She nods "Uhm." Manato takes his glasses off & looks at them "These glasses....they're actually not powered." Taking & looking at them, she says "It is!" & returns it to him. Manato takes it & puts them back on "I can't remember when but I started wearing these, & looking through a filter." "I see...you're surprisingly profound...." Manato turns around & slides to his heels "No matter what I do or what happens to me, even if there's no place for me at home or at school, as long as I'm playacting, it's not the real me." "It's difficult but somehow, I kind of understand." "But today, I realized something...." "What's that?" "That the guy I was playacting had completely taken over the real me." She gets down to her heels & looks at him "So the fake you has taken the real you away?" Manato nods "Yes." "That's scary." All of a sudden, Manato starts crying. Looking at him, she asks "& who's that crying? The real you? or the fake you? Who's tears are those?" Manato replies, still crying "I don't know....." Suddenly, she gets to her feet "Let's play a game." Blinking back tears, Manato looks at her "Eh?" "The next car that comes by, what color do you think it will be?" "That again?" "Doesn't matter, what color?" "Whatever color's fine." "In that case, whatever that comes along, you jump." Manato looks at her as she asks "Can you do it? You're a guy aren't you?" Manato nods & finally gets to his feet. A truck approaches & she says "It's coming." Nervously, Manato mutters "It's huge!" "You can do it with one step."

Manato stares at it & plucking up his courage, closing his eyes, he steps out onto the road. The truck sounds its horn urgently & at the last moment, she reaches out for his hand & pulls Manato back. Manato falls to the ground & she takes of his glasses, throwing them onto the road. The truck rushes by & crushes the glasses into pieces. Manato stares at them, not saying a word. She says "He's dead." Manato looks up at her & she tells him "The fake you is dead." Getting to his feet, he stares at her, getting a smile back "You're weird." "Compared to who?" Manato finally smiles. "Hey, by the way, I still don't know your name." Looking out over the water, she replies "It's Yui." "Yui?" "I'm Manato. Irie Manato." Turning back to look at him, Yui smiles "I know." Manato looks at her in surprise "Eh?"

Movers bring in furniture into the Irie house "Where do we put this?" Irie replies "In the room furthest inside. Be careful." In the living room, Mizawa smiles as she unpacks.....

In Manato's room, Yui goes through Manato's CDs, flipping through his books. Her mother walk in "You can't just walk into other people's room & mess around with his things." Yui replies "What's wrong with that?" "Enough of that, go change & get to school." "Alright." "Get along with him ok?" Yui pauses at the doorway "We're getting along pretty well already."

In class, Mariko is teaching English. Taeko whispers to Haruka "Is that really Irie-kun? He does look pretty cute!" Haruka stares at Manato beside her, not wearing his glasses, resting his chin on his hand......

it's not to much to say that

ever since that time,

I changed for you, is it.....

Manato stares out the window at the school gates. Suddenly, he sees Yui in her red coat walk in. With a smile, he stands up & walks to the window......

that's why I'll never ever forget you.....

Mariko looks up "Irie-kun?" Everyone turns to look at Manato sliding the window open. A gust of wind enters, ruffling the pages of his text book left on the table. Manato stares at Yui as she spots him, smiling & waving to him from below......

& when I was crazily & madly in love,

with my beloved younger sister.....

ichigo no kissu

~ strawberry kiss ~

In class, the teacher is reading aloud when he passes Yui & notices her slumped over dozing at her desk. Annoyed, he prods her on the shoulders "Irie! Irie!" Yui reluctantly sits upright mumbling "Yes." "Just transferred to this school & nodding off asleep already?!" Yui pouts "But...." "But what?" "It's so boring!" The whole class bursts out laughing & thankfully, the bell chimes. The teacher clears his throat & announces "Alright! That's all for today!" When the class monitor calls out "Stand up!" the class get to their feet but Yui, in a rush, adds "Bow!" Bending over in a quick bow, she dashes out of class, ignoring the teacher yelling at her "Oi! Irie!" Running out into the corridor Yui happily goes up the stairs......



In the class above, Taeko asks Manato "Irie, who's that girl?" Manato feigns ignorance "Who?" Haruka adds "That transfer student, haven't you seen her?" Manato replies "No." Suddenly Yui appears "The transfer student is here!" Haruka looks a little curious at her appearance but not noticing, Yui cheerfully runs up to Manato "Let's have lunch together?" Manato nods. Taeko looks at Manato & bluntly says "She's your girlfriend?!" Manato starts to reply but Yui interrupts "We're living together." Shocked, Haruka stares at them "What?!" Yui turns to Manato "Right Manato?" Manato hesitatingly nods "Well, yes...."



Haruka waits at the bottom of the stairs by the shoe lockers. When Manato passes by & changes his shoes, Haruka nonchalantly walks up "You've taken off your glasses." "They broke." "You look better without them." "You think so?" "I feel kind of strange without them, I'm still not used to it." "If you change your hairstyle you'll look even better, you'll definitely become popular with the girls." "I wonder." "You'll get a lot of love letters for sure." "Love letters....." "I never thought that your father would remarry." "To tell you the truth, I didn't either. When mom left he was devastated." "Are you alright?" "I'm no longer a kid." "That's true. Well then, I'm off. Bye bye." "Bye bye." Haruka takes a step & then turns around "Ah, your sister Yui-chan....she's really cute." Manato replies "I wonder....." Haruka smiles & then turns to leave.....



Standing outside by the school gates, Manato looks at his watch, muttering "She's taking a long time." As students leave for the day, Manato paces by the gates, waiting.....


thinking back, I was always like this,

I was always waiting for you...


Upstairs in the music room, Yui is on all fours, searching through all the desks & the floor muttering worridly "Where's my key?" Suddenly she remembers "Ah! Manato has the house key too! What an idiot I am!" Getting up, she turns around & sees Saeki standing behind her. With a grin, he holds out a key attached to a pink bell key chain "Here!" Saeki tosses it & Yui, catching it, looks back at him. Saeki grins & gives her a sign of victory, getting a sweet smile from Yui.....





but I will never ever forget you...

even then, I was happy....

Downstairs by the school gates, Manato stares up into the school building, waiting......



Manato & Yui walk up the flight of stairs into their home. Walking ahead, Manato finds the door locked "I wonder if they're gone shopping..." & starts to get his key out. From her coat pocket, Yui takes out her key "Wait! Let me open it?" "Alright." Yui unlocks the door "This is officially the first time I'm 'coming home'. When I open the door & say 'I'm back', you have to say 'welcome home', ok?" Manato replies "I usually say 'I'm back' too....." but seeing Yui's pleading look on her face, gives in "Alright." Yui enters & turns on the light, calling out "I'm back!" Manato, coming in behind her, says a little awkwardly "Welcome home." Yui turns back to look at him & Manato quickly says "Did it sound strange? I'll do it again." However Yui merely smiles "Come help me unpack." Manato nods "Uhm." & locking up, follows her upstairs.....



Saeki knocks on the door of an apartment "It's me. You're home, aren't you." Not getting a response, Saeki knocks again "Mariko...Mari-chan....Asami-sensei?" On the other side of the door, Mariko remains silent, listening to Saeki speak "Today was....ah, his death anniversary's coming up soon, so that's why you're like this. I just remembered, last year around this time you were like this too. I know as soon as you start acting cold towards me. He was a good teacher. I liked him a lot too. I was in love with you at the time but I thought it wasn't possible. I didn't think that I could match up to him. Even now, I know that I'll never be able to match up to him so you don't have to worry about me. It's alright if you don't think of me as a man. It's just one sided on my part going after you so you don't have to feel guilty." Finally Mariko says "Why? Why are you being so nice?" Saeki replies "I am not nice. Rather, I think I'm very cold towards strangers. You're the exception. You're special. Try pronouncing it, special." "Don't make fun of an English teacher." "Oh, I see you've cheered up a little. I'm going home. If I don't eat & get some sleep, Mom will get worried." With that, Saeki leaves. Inside, Mariko mutters to herself "Idiot!"



Manato carries a carton into Yui's room "Where do I put this?" "Over here." "This is really something! Everything's pink!" Yui, putting on pink cover on her pillow, replies "It's my lucky color, don't you think it's romantic?" "Don't you get a headache?" "No, I love reds & pinks." "What about food?" "Well, I like eating strawberries." "Hmm, with condense milk?" "No, not that kind of strawberries." "Not that kind?" "I like the kind of strawberries on top of cakes." "Shortcake?" "Yes. Only one strawberry. & it's the first thing I eat." "The first? But if you like it don't you leave it to the last?" "Because I like it, it's the first thing I eat." Manato nods, pondering on Yui's logic. The phone rings & Manato tells Yui "I guess it's done." Yui nods "Thanks."



Going into his room, Manato picks up the receiver "This is Irie." "It's me." "Sawamura?" "Yes." Manato goes to the window & draws open the curtain. In her room looking through the window, Haruka says "I'm sorry, are you studying?" "Studying? No, helping her....ah, I was helping my new sister unpack." "I see." "As for the university entrance exam, I don't think I'll be able to make it this year. I'll probably wait another year." "You can't say such things like that." "What about you?" "I've been recommended to college by the principal." "That's great. But then again, you've always been a better student than I am." "Says who. You used to be better than me." "That was in grade school!" "You've got more hidden potential than I do." "Hidden potential.....ah, did something happen?" "Eh?" "Did you parents have another fight?" "No, ah, I can't do this?" "Hm?" "Calling you for nothing." Before Manato can answer, Yui grabs the receiver from Manato & answers "You definitely can." Making a grab for the phone, Manato misses & tumbles to the floor. Ignoring him, Yui looks out the window with a big smile "Good evening." Surprised, Haruka replies "Good evening." "You're in the same class as Manato, aren't you?" "Yes." "I'm Irie Yui, yoroshiku again." "I'm Sawamura Haruka." "Do you like my brother?" Shocked at Yui's bluntness, Sawamura doesn't answer. Annoyed, Manato grabs the receiver back from Yui "What are you saying?!" Quickly speaking into the receiver "Hello? I'm sorry..." but Haruka's hung up. Looking through the window, Manato sees Haruka drawing her curtain shut. With an irritated glare at Yui, Manato starts to say "Hey....." Hearing sounds from below, Yui ignores Manato & runs out of his room "Mom & Dad are home!" Nothing left to say, Manato puts the receiver down & gives a glance at the window.......



Later during the night, Manato stares out the window at Haruka's window & sees the light go out. Hearing a knock on his door, Manato quickly draws his curtain shut & sits back down at his desk "Yes?" The door opens & Yui peeps in "Are you studying?" "Can't you tell?" "Can you come for a second?" "No, I'm in the midst of studying." Yui puts her hands together "Please? Just for a bit." With a sigh, Manato turns around & looks at her.......



Quietly, Manato follows Yui down the stairs "What is it?" Yui puts her finger to her lips "Shhhhh!" From the foot of the stairs, they look across to their parents' bedroom with the door left ajar. From the room, sounds of their parents making love filter out. Embarrassed, Manato turns to go back upstairs "This is not a good idea!" However, Yui sits down on the last step & continues listening. Turning back to look at her, Manato tells her "There's something wrong with you!" However, Yui quietly says "I'm glad." With a puzzled look, Manato says "Eh?" Moved to tears, Yui replies "Mom's found happiness." Without a word, Manato quietly sits down on the steps, staying close to her......



At the breakfast table the following morning, Irie says "Ah! Having such a good breakfast in the morning, this is great, isn't it Manato?" Manato nods, a tad awkward. A little embarrassed, Yurie replies "I didn't make anything that special!" Yui adds smiling "I wonder, feels like it's a little more special than normal." Yui retorts "No it isn't, it's the same as always. Don't say strange things." Yui smiles "You're cute when you get serious!" "I am not serious!" "Alright, alright, you're not, you're not." Irie laughs at the banter between mother & daughter "It's getting lively around here, feels like we're a family." Yurie gets up "Isn't it time for you to go?" Irie looks at his watch "It is, gochisosama." Yui looks up "Papa, take care." Surprise appears on everyone's faces. After a pause, Irie replies "Well them, I'm off." Yurie calls out "Manato-kun?" "Yes?" "Help yourself to more food." "Ah, alright." As Yurie sees Irie off, Manato & Yui are left alone at the table. Manato gives Yui an assessing glance & Yui asks "What?" "It's nothing to you, is it." "You mean calling him 'papa'? Would it be better if I called him ojisan (uncle)?" "I'm not talking about that..." "You can call my mother 'Mom' too. Ah, then again you remember your own mother so it's hard for you to call her that." "I'm not talking about about that!" "What then?" "I couldn't look them straight in their eyes." "Why not?" "Why?" "Because of last night?" Manato nods & Yui smiles "Ah, you're thinking dirty." Manato retorts "What do you mean dirty?! You were the one that got me to listen in on them!" "I didn't ask you to listen in on them that way." "Then what did you mean?" "To share their emotion." "To share their emotion?" "To share their feeling of happiness. I think that a person's feelings are like a contagious disease." "Contagious disease?" "Feelings of joy & happiness can be spread around to other people. If mom's feelings of happiness spreads to me, then I'll become happy too." "That's why you cried?" "Yes. I cry when I'm happy." "Don't you think that's weird?" "So you don't cry when you're sad?" "I don't." "Cause you'll spread it to other people?" "Yes." Manato smiles "You're really something!" "I am not!" pouts Yui.......



At the bus stop, Yui looks at the bus schedule just like an innocent child & Manato, watching her, smiles to himself. Yui asks "What is it?" "Nothing." Yui pouts "What is it?" coming to sit by him on the rail alongside the walkway. Manato says "Well, I was just thinking about what you said earlier, I guess you're still very much like a child after all. Forget it...." "Because I don't have any idea?" "What?" "About sex." Manato nods "Well, I guess so...." Yui looks at him "So you think that I don't have that experience?" Surprised, Manato looks at her "Eh?" The bus arrives & Yui walks towards it. Shocked, Manato gets to his feet "You do?!" Turning around with a smile, Yui nods "Yes." Speechless Manato merely stands immobile. From the steps of the bus, Yui calls out "Hurry up!" Manato finally finds his voice & picking up his bag, follow her up the bus. Just as the bus is about to pull away, Yui calls out to the driver "Please wait a minute!" The door opens & Haruka comes up "Sorry!" & turns when Yui calls out "Good morning!" Sheepishly, Manato looks at Haruka "Good morning." Haruka, a little uneasy as well, smiles "Good morning." When a seat is vacated, Yui sits down & calls out "Come sit." Manato tells Haruka "Go sit." "I'm fine." Yui calls out again "The three of us can seat together." Manato says "Go ahead Sawamura." "But...." However, Manato's moved away & Haruka, hearing Yui calling out again "Come sit", goes over & takes a seat beside Yui. Yui smiling, gives Haruka a long assessing look & then at Manato......



Saeki spots Mariko approaching him. Cheerfully, Mariko greets him "Morning!" as she passes by, striding along. Saeki replies "Good morning...sure is chirpy....." muttering to himself. Watching Saeki from a distance is Haruka.......



Saeki walks into a class & interrupts Taeko & Haruka "Excuse me..." Taeko gets up from her desk "Saeki-san!" "Morning!" "Good morning, what is it?" Saeki tells her "I'm not looking for you." "Eh?" Looking at Haruka, Saeki asks "Can I talk to you for a minute?" Haruka doesn't reply......



In the counselor's room, Manato pushes a paper bag across the table towards Mariko. Accepting the bag & looking into it, Mariko sees her lingerie that Manato stole previously. Looking appropriately remorseful, Manato mutters "I'm sorry." Awkwardly, Mariko replies "It's not a big deal...." "Am I going to be suspended?" "Expelled." Manato nods "Oh." Mariko laughs "I'm kidding! I guess boys your age all have an interest in women, it's normal. Don't worry about me. I'm happy that you think that I'm an attractive woman. Of course I'm a little uneasy but.....what am I saying....really......" When Mariko nervously rattles on, Manato says "sensei..." "Yes?" "Can I go now?" "Yes." Manato gets up & leaves. Alone, Mariko sighs "This is tough to talk about...."



On the roof top, Saeki tells Haruka "I don't think you're the kind that will gossip but just in case...." "I haven't told anyone." "Thank you. It doesn't bother me but it bothers her....I mean sensei." "I said I wouldn't tell anyone! I hate that sort of thing." "What?" "Teachers & students having that sort of a relationship." Saeki laughs & Haruka looks at him annoyed "You think I'm old fashioned?" "No, I don't." "I think she's a good teacher but now I look down on her." "You should get your mind out of the gutter. The moment men & women are together you think of sex right away." Uneasily, Haruka looks away defensively "I do not...." "You've never been in love before, have you." "That's got nothing..." Saeki continues teasing her relentlessly "You're overly defensive, or are you afraid of doing it?" At the insinuating tone, Haruka raises her hand & smacks Saeki across the cheek. Amused, Saeki pouts "Oww...my teeth might have fallen out...." Saeki grins "I'm kidding, alright?" Upset, Haruka runs off, leaving Saeki alone up on the roof top muttering to himself "She's cute."



Running down the stairs without looking, Haruka crashes into Manato & they both go tumbling down. Manato grimaces "Ouch!" & then turning to look, sees Haruka "Sawamura?" However Haruka doesn't look at him, merely picks herself up & continues running down the stairs.......



In class, Haruka glances at Manato who's taking down notes. Reaching under her desk, Haruka pulls out blue colored writing paper.....



In the music room, Saeki plays a pensive tune on the grand piano. When he finishes, he hears someone clapping. Looking, he sees Yui smiling, clapping, watching him. With a nonchalant smile, Saeki asks "Left something behind again?" Yui shakes her head with a smile. "Then what? Do you want to join the brass band?" Yui shakes her head again & Saeki says "In the first place there wasn't enough members so the club was disbanded last year anyway." Yui asks "What's the name of that song you were playing?" "Name? There isn't one, I made it up." "I see...." "If there's nothing, could you please leave?" "I recalled something listening to your music." "Hm? Well, if you want to be here, fine. Then I'll leave." Saeki gets up from the piano & starts to leave when Yui says "A pink colored chick." With a laugh, Saeki says "A pink colored....?" "Chick. I had one when I was in kindergarten. It was really adorable & I loved it. I was in love with it. One day when I came home from school one day, the neighbor's dog had eaten it." "What a sad story." "I don't think it was sad. It's insides were all over the place, it made me sick. & then I threw it into the river nearby." "So you lost interest in your love then." "Yes." Saeki looks at her & then frowns "& my music made you think of that?" Yui nods with a smile. Saeki grimaces, amused at the same time "It made you remember that?" Yui nods again & they both end up laughing.......



Downstairs by the school gates, Manato paces "She's taking forever...." Looking at his watch, he sees the time at 4.39pm. Reaching into his pocket, he pulls out a blue colored letter 'I'll be waiting for you at 5 by the fountain.'



Manato comes running up to the fountain. Panting trying to catch his breath, he looks around & then glances at his watch, 5.12pm. Looking around & not seeing anyone, he mutters to himself "I sure am an idiot doing this!" Dropping his bag on the ground, Manato takes a seat on the ledge of the fountain. Haruka watches him from a distance & starts approaching. Taking the letter out from his pocket, Manato starts ripping it up. Suddenly noticing her, he gets up on his feet "Sawamura! What are you doing here?" Hesitatingly, Haruka stammers "Uhm.......it's me....that...." Manato asks "That what?" "The blue letters." "Eh?" Looking at the letter in his hand, Manato says "Oh, I see." Awkwardly, the both of them look at each other, neither finding any words to say......



At home, Manato soaks in the hot bath, lost in thought.....



Over at the Sawamura home, Satoru says "Mom went to bed after drinking again tonight." Breaking out of her reverie, Haruka replies "I see." "I'll bet it's because she knows that Dad's having an affair outside." "Hey..." "I'm not the one having the affair so I wished she would at least make dinner for me." "That's true." "But then again, it's alright. Your cooking's delicious too." "You think so?" "You'll make a good wife." "Thank you." "I want to marry you." Haruka laughs at her younger brother "Brothers & sisters can't get married." "Why not?" "Because we're blood related." "Hmmm....then brothers & sisters who aren't related by blood can get married." Taken aback, Haruka ponders "Eh? Well, I guess so........"



Manato lies on the floor in his room, Yui sits down next to him, fanning him with some paper "Why did you soak in the bath until you got dizzy?" With a towel covering his eyes, Manato replies "I was thinking about something." "What? Is it interesting?" "I don't know if it's interesting or not..." "What is it?" Excitedly, Yui pulls the towel away from Manato. Looking at her, he asks "Why do you keep asking?" "Well, if it's something interesting, I want you to share it with me too!" "Yeah yeah, I see..." mutters Manato, sitting up. "So what is it?" "I got another letter again in my shoe locker." "That's great!" "It's the same as before, another blue letter. You've see it too." "I see, someone playing a prank on you?" "It said to meet at 5 by the fountain again." "Did you go?" "I did." "Ah, so that's why you stood me up!" "I waited until 4.30! Where were you anyway?!" "Well, I had something to do." "Do what?" "Forget it." "Fine, I will." Manato gets up off the floor & sits at his desk. Yui asks "So was it because someone played a prank on you & you were so upset you got dizzy?" "Well, actually......it wasn't a prank." "Eh? What do you mean? Then it's a real love letter?" "I guess you could say that." Excitedly, Yui asks "Did she come? What's she like? Is she cute?" Manato nods. Yui smiles "Really? Cuter than me?" Manato looks at her "That's a matter of taste." laying his head down on the table. Yui frowns not liking his answer "Bu bu bu....never mind, so is she the same age as you?" "The same." "Which class?" "The same?" "Ah! I'll sneak in tomorrow to take a peek!" "You've seen her already." "Eh?" Manato gets up "You sat next to her on the bus this morning." Yui turns to the window & points enquiringly, getting a nod from Manato. Yui bounces up to the window, drawing open the curtain "Ah, it's just as I thought!" "Liar!" "It's the truth! She's really conscious of you." "Isn't that because you said that to her on the phone? Even I feel self conscious now." Staring at Haruka's window, Yui ponders out loud "Blue curtains, blue letters.....her lucky color must be blue." Sitting on the bed, Manato frowns "Speaking of which, her muffler is blue too." "& then?" "Then what?" Yui moves to the bed beside Manato "What did you talk about?" Hesitatingly, Manato replies "Well..." "Well what?" "I suddenly got very nervous." "I think she would be even more nervous than you." "Well, the both of us were. It was like the air around us suddenly froze." "So neither of you said a word?" "For about 30 minutes." Yui grimaces "Uwaaa....." "& then Sawamura slowly looked like she regretting the whole thing...." "Of course she would! She gave up on you!" "Then I said 'sorry'..." "You spoke to her?" "Then without realizing it..." "Without realizing it?" "I said "Let's go to go to the movies tomorrow"..." "You asked her out?" "Well, yeah...." "So what did she say?" "She said "Uhm."" "That's great!" Yui exclaims, prodding him with her elbow, causing Manato to fall of the side of the bed, banging his head on the lamp. With a sheepish grin, Manato replies "I wonder...."



Sitting on the stairs of Mariko's apartment building, Saeki smokes a cigarette, waiting. A white car pulls up & Mariko gets out, telling the guy who's sent her home "Thank you very much." The guy nods "I'll see you again." "Take care." When the car pulls away, Mariko walks up the stairs & then spots Saeki. Blocking her way, Saeki asks "Who's that guy?" "Does it matter who it is?" Saeki grabs her hand "It matters, who is he?" "Let go of me!" "Who is he?" "I said let go!" "Sorry....does it hurt?" Mariko ignores him & walks to her apartment.....



Sitting by her bed, Yui plays with the bell on her key chain. A knock on the door & Yui sleepily answers "Yes?" Manato answers "It's me, are you asleep?" "Half asleep." "Then I'll talk to you tomorrow." Manato starts to walk back to his room when he hears Yui say "I'll listen to you half awake." Manato pauses & turns back "Oh.....I was thinking....that I should cancel the date with Sawamura tomorrow. To be honest, I don't feel that sort of emotion for her." Yui opens the door & peeps out. Manato adds "Of course it's not that I don't like her. Rather it's more like I don't feel I can like her that way. It's just that since we were talking about it, & I asked her out without thinking about it." Yui laughs & Manato gets upset "Don't laugh! I'm seriously thinking about her. If I don't feel that way about her....." Suddenly Yui interrupts "By any chance you haven't got any experience?" "What?" "Gone on a date before." Manato lies through his teeth "Of course I have! I'm a senior at high school! Don't be ridiculous! Well, it's not that I've been on a lot of date but...." Yui gives in "Alright, I understand. Then if you have gone on dates, have you held hands?" "What do you mean "if I have"? Well, more or less." "Have you kissed before?" Manato stares at Yui surprised "Kiss?! Kiss...." "Not on the cheeks...." "I know!" Manato looks away & sighs dejectedly "I don't...." At the same time, Yui says "So you don't...." Quickly Manato adds "But I've been in that sort of situation...." Yui suddenly faces him "Let's practice?" "Eh?" "Practice with me?" "What are you saying..." However, Yui reaches out & holding him by his shoulders, turns him to face her "When you get close to a girl, she'll naturally close her eyes." Yui closes her eyes & then putting her hands on Manato's head "Tilt your head so your noses won't get in the way. & then gently...." Manato slowly approaches Yui. Just as his lips are about to touch hers, Yui suddenly moves away "& then the rest will happen naturally" going into her room & shutting the door. Stunned, Manato remains frozen. Yui's door opens again "Do you understand now?" Gathering his wits about him, Manato nods "Uhm." "Then goodnight." Yui shuts the door again & Manato, half puzzled & wondering at what's happened, walks into his room & shuts the door.......



Sawamura goes for her run around the school tracks. Done with practice, she sees Manato by the shoe lockers "Good morning." Manato, awkwardly replies "Good morning." The both of them start changing their shoes, Haruka saying "You changed your hairstyle." "Well, just a little." "I went by the Tokyo Theatre yesterday." "Eh? Ah, what are they showing now?" Haruka gets up & approaches Manato "One of them was....." Suddenly another student comes by "Good morning." Both Haruka & Manato self consciously turn back to changing their shoes. Haruka tentatively suggests "Are you ok with a horror movie?" Manato proceeds to nod before grimacing "Not really......"



In the music room, Saeki takes a look at the apple in his hands before biting into it. The door opens & Mariko walks in. Saeki holds out the apple in offering & Mariko shakes her head. Saeki says "So you're here to give me an excuse." "I'm not giving any excuses. It's exactly as what you saw." "What I saw was a couple together, him sending you home after a date & you sending him off with a smile." "If that's what you saw, then that's what it is." "That's a lie. It's just for appearances. That's because I believe that you won't do something like that." "I met him before at an arranged marriage meeting." "Arranged marriage? I didn't hear anything about it." "I turn down the offer immediately. However the matchmaker was really enthusiastic, saying that he was working at a good company & a nice man. So I agreed to meet with him once." "Even though you turned him down he's still coming after you?" "I called him." "Why?" "Because I was lonely. It's been three years since he died & I was thinking, it's that time of the year again....." "I know that. That's why I'm here. That's why I'm here by your side." "I'm very grateful to you. Even after his funeral, you were there by my side, not saying anything. & even after that you......" "Yes, I....?" "You let me forget my pain." "Yes. So why?" "Because the loneliness is still here. You're not the one who can make it disappear." "Because I'm a kid?" "I'm sorry." Mariko starts to leave & Saeki asks "Why are you telling me this now?" However Mariko ignores him & walks out the door. Left alone, Saeki flings the apple against the wall in anger "What do you want me to do now?!"



In class, Yui doesn't pay attention but plays with her key chain.....



At the movies, Manato & Haruka, awkwardly watching the screen, both intensely aware of the other's presence. Manato offers her some popcorn but she declines. He suddenly feels something & looks to see Haruka's hand on his. Haruka, however, doesn't look at him but stares ahead at the movie screen. After a moment's hesitation, he makes his decision & turning his hand, holds hers.......



At a cafe, Haruka ponders "I think it was the wrong choice..." Manato looks at her surprised "Eh?" "Maybe an action movie would have been better?" "It's ok, the ending was good." "I'm glad. I guess whether one likes a movie or not depends on one's tastes." Silence falls between them again. When Manato notices Haruka eat a piece of shortcake, leaving the strawberry on top untouched, he asks "You don't like strawberries?" "I like them. Why?" "You didn't eat it first." "I'm leaving it for last." "Well if you like it then shouldn't you eat it first?" "Because I like it, I leave it to the end." Manato nods. Haruka asks "What about you?" "I guess I'll probably leave it to the end too." "That makes us the same." "Yeah...." Tension easing between them.......



In the music room, Yui practices on the piano & fumbles "Ah, I can't do it! I've forgotten what I learnt in kindergarten." Saeki says "Well, you have to practice everyday." "Yes, sensei." Getting up from the piano, Yui says "You're 20 already. I found out from the other students that because you're ill, you haven't made the required school days attendance. I wondered why you felt like a grown up. Ah, if you don't make it this year too, then we'll be classmates in April." Seated at the piano, Saeki replies "I'll be graduating this year." "Is that so? That's unfortunate." Saeki, playing the pensive tune on the piano, suddenly stops, he hand trembling. Yui turns to look at him & Saeki, tears in his eyes, says "I don't want to talk about it......please........"



Walking home, Haruka says "Thanks for today." Manato replies "You don't have to thank me for anything." Haruka continues "I hate it." "Eh?" "I hate myself." "Oh. How come?" "Because I'm boring. It feels like I'm being bound by morals & ethics. I'm not even good inside." "Everyone's the same, even me." "I hate myself being like that, really hate it. & because I hate feeling like this, I want to change myself but I'm not brave enough." "I understand." "I feel uneasy with other people. When I'm with other people other than you that I've known since we were children, I'm afraid." "Afraid?" Haruka looks at him & Manato, understanding, nods "Ah." Slowly, hesitatingly, Manato positions himself in front of Haruka. Yui's words ring in his head as he reaches out for Haruka's shoulders "When you get close to a girl, she'll naturally close her eyes. Tilt your head so your noses won't get in the way..." Yui's face appears in his mind & Manato moves forward, gently giving Haruka a kiss.......



Arriving home, Manato enters the living room. Fresh out of her bath, Yui cheerfully greets him "Welcome home!" "Where's Dad?" "They went to the hospital for a checkup." "The hospital?" Grinning, Yui sits on the couch "What would you think if mom's pregnant?" "Don't talk rubbish." Yui gets up & grabs Manato, pulling him down on the couch beside her "So how was it?" "What?" "Of course I'm talking about your date!" "Oh." "Was it exciting?" "The movie? So so." "Hey!" Manato gets to his feet irritably "Don't ask!" Yui follows him out "What do you mean 'don't ask!' We're brother & sister after all!" Manato stops in his tracks & turns around, looking at Yui "Brother & sister?" Innocently, Yui nods "Yes. So, did you hold her hand? Did you kiss her?" Manato replies "I didn't." Yui pouts "What's that? How boring!" Upset, Manato raises his voice at her "Do you find that exciting?!" Stunned at Manato's reaction, Yui merely stares at him. Manato turns & starts up the stairs. Yui calls out "Wait a minute! What are you upset about? Hey!" Manato goes upstairs & pauses outside his door.....





when did I start thinking of you that way

even now I don't really know

it doesn't matter either

only that I will never ever forget you.....

even if I forget the number of times

I have tried to erase you from my heart.....


Entering his room, Manato sits on his bed, in darkness, alone with his thoughts......
