Waaaaah! Now I can’t get married! Nooo! …Actually it wasn’t that bad. I managed to push him away just in time and then Kariya ran over to help. Yay, my hero! Only problem is I wouldn’t even have been in that mess if it wasn’t for his stupid little brother randomly falling in love with me just because I’m his brother’s girlfriend (even though I’m not because Kariya hasn’t formally asked me out), so he owes me some compensation. On a more serious note, I don’t see any future for our relationship if his brother is going to assault me at every opportunity. Just think of how awkward the family reunions would be!
Unfortunately it’s a little too late for me to back out of a Kariya end now, seeing as I’ve ditched or friend zoned all the other guys and there’s only one month left till the end of the game. What I did with Kakeru was particularly ingenious… or cruel, depending on how you want to see it. It got to the stage where Kakeru was clearly trying to confess his feelings for Yui. He asked her to meet him after school so they could talk. Kariya-sempai hadn’t (and I remind you still hasn’t) asked me out, but I’d already made up my mind to go for him so Kakeru didn’t stand a chance. But turning him down would make things uncomfortable for the rest of the game. What to do?
Why, blow off the meeting and pretend I completely forgot, that’s what. Stunned by how easily Yui “forgot” about him, Kakeru calls her up to say it didn’t matter what he was going to say that afternoon and that he hopes they’ll continue to be great friends forever. And that’s the end of that. Heh heh heh. That’s right, folks, I manipulated Kakeru into friend zoning himself. I’m such a little…. heh. Maybe being stalked by Kariya’s brother is divine punishment. ‘Cos I just told him off for shoplifting and now he’s head over heels for me. That’s not natural. Definitely a bolt from above, so don’t feel too bad for me. And don’t feel too bad for Kakeru either, because I made a backup save right before that event. Now I won’t have to start the game from scratch to get him.
Hatsukare Renai Debut Sengen covers a school term from April to July and I’m already on June 23rd, so I should be done soon. I can’t wait to see how Furyu gives me a happy ending with a guy whose brother likes to mess with his girlfriends just for the fun of it. There will be blood, oh yes there will.
