Miki x Yuu Quotes Manga Version

() = thoughts

Volume 1

===

Miki: You know, Yuu, you're a lot like marmalade.
Yuu: Huh?
Miki: Even though you've got lots of bitter bits inside you, all people see is the sweetness on the surface. Marmalade Boy! Perfect, isn't it?
Yuu: Hmm...I see. Well then, Miki, you're this...always spicy and sour. A mustard girl!

--------

Yuu: That was pretty cruel of them. This time, they went too far. They lied to you. That's not right. You have every right to be mad. But, our parents...they were concerned that you didn't really mean it when you gave them your okay. All of this was just their way of making sure you didn't hate them for it. So...can you forgive them?
Miki: (Oh Yuu. I'm so used to you being a jerk...that when you're kind and gentle with me...I don't know what to think.

--------

Yuu: You know, Arimi and I used to go out. It was only for three months, but we did pretty much everything.
Miki: EVERYTHING??!
Yuu: Yeah. You know...Christmas, New Year's, Valentine's Day, Birthdays...all the things that couples do together.
Miki: Oh...you mean THOSE things.
Yuu: ...what, were you thinking of something else?
Miki: No I wasn't!
Yuu: Miki, you pervert!
Miki: I wasn't really!!
Yuu: Well, should I tell you how far we went?
Miki: I don't want to know!
Yuu: We did nothing.
Miki: ...liar...
Yuu: No, really. My first kiss was you, Miki. You were awake, weren't you?
Miki: You knew...?
Yuu: Not at first, no. But I felt your body move while I was doing it.
Miki: Why...why did you do that?
Yuu: ...Well...the devil made me do it.
Miki: .....
Yuu: Yikes! I'm kidding! It's because I like you, Miki.
Miki: Stop teasing me! You're always making fun of me...and you're never serious when we talk!
Yuu: But, Miki...
Miki: I don't care! I'm going home!
Yuu: I made her mad again.

--------

Volume 2

===

Miki: You took your shower already? It's so early.
Yuu: Yeah. What's the matter? Did you want to take one with me?
Miki: Idiot! (He didn't even mention what happened. I wonder if...he even cares.)

--------

Miki: Here's a ticket! Come down to the booth and get a bowl. On me!
Yuu: Uh well...
Miki: You don't like oden?
Yuu: No, it's not that. It's just...I've already received so many tickets from other girls.
Miki: ALL those from girls?
Yuu: Of course. It'd be weird if a guy gave one to me.
Miki: ...how SWEET! You won't be needing THIS then. I'm sure you'll be full by the time you get around to our booth!
Yuu: Er...no. I'll take it.
Miki: You don't have to force yourself! I don't want the ticket going to waste.
Yuu: I'll really go. Miki! Give it to me! I swear I'll go.
Miki: If you waste it...I'm not going to be happy.
Yuu: Thank you.
Miki: (I can't resist his smile. I think...I'm falling...in love with Yuu.

--------

Yuu: Are you going to sit there all night?
Miki: YUU?! What are you doing here? What about dinner?
Yuu: I've been following you since you ran off. You were just too thick-headed to notice.
Miki: ....
Yuu: What's the matter? You still haven't gotten over the divorce?
Miki: No...it's not that. I've come to terms with that now. It's just...I know it's just paperwork. But technically, Chiyako is now my mom. When I think that my real mom isn't officially my mom anymore...I get a bit depressed.
Yuu: Hmmm
Miki: (That was all Yuu said on the matter. He just sat there silently. Sat there beside me...just the two of us.)
Miki: Mmmm! So good. I love their teriyaki chicken burgers.
Yuu: Well, it's okay...if you like crap! If it weren't for you, I'd be eating four-star Italian cuisine right now. Instead, I'm stuck eating fast food with you.
Miki: (It's no use talking like that now. I know that inside you really do care.)

--------

Volume 3

===

Miki: Yuu...
Yuu: Hm?
Miki: You know I suck at cooking, right? So why don't we go out to eat? Would you like that better?
Yuu: It's okay. It's not like it's so bad that I can't eat your cooking.
Miki: Eh? But...
Yuu: Besides, you look so cute when you're cooking your heart out...
Miki: (Damn. Why does he say stuff like that? Does he know my...true feelings?)

--------

Yuu: You bought too much stuff. It's breaking my back.
Miki: You think two bags are heavy? You're so weak.
Yuu: It's not that I'm weak...this really weighs a ton. Why don't you try holding it? Then you'll see.
Miki: That's a lie. You're just a wimp.
Yuu: Don't underestimate me. I can pick you up with one arm!
Miki: Yeah right...wh...what are you doing? Let me go!
Yuu: Shut up! Or I'll drop you. See. I picked you up, right?
Miki: .....

--------

Miki: You used to work at a clothing store? Why did you quit over the winter break?
Yuu: Because our parents went on their honeymoon, and you said you didn't have any tennis club activities during winter break...if I was working, I wouldn't get home until very late at night. It'd be too dangerous for you to be home alone.
Miki: (He quit for me?) Th-thank you.
Yuu: Oh well. What's the use...
Miki: (What's the use? You're always like that. You act like you're mean. But you're really not. That's one of the things I like about you.)
Yuu: That's it. Let's go buy some cake and then go home.
Miki: Okay! (This winter break, I'll have Yuu's smiling face all to myself. I'm so happy I could even thank my weird parents right now!)

--------

Miki: The candle light is so pretty. Isn't it?
Yuu: Yeah.
Miki: (Hey, he actually gave me a straight answer! Like a normal guy...Eh...What's this? Why? Is he looking at me or is he looking at the candles?)

--------

Yuu: Stop.
Ginta: ARGH!
Yuu: Don't try to hook up with Miki right in front of the house. What'll the neighbors think? It's a good thing I came back from the bookstore when I did. Think about the time and place next time! See ya.
Ginta: Ah...that jerk- It was perfect timing...DAMN YOU!
Miki: (Ugh..need oxygen...)
Yuu: Screaming again? He just doesn't learn, does he?
Miki: Need to breathe...
Yuu: Oh, sorry sorry.
Miki: Wait, Yuu!
Yuu: What?
Miki: Well...never mind. It's nothing. (Why did he stop us? Is he jealous?) Don't walk away like that. Idiot...

--------

Yuu: Miki!
Miki: Hey, what's up with you coming into my room without asking...
Yuu: Don't be sucha  crybaby. We have to catch Akizuki. She's at the Tokyo Station!
Miki: Eh?
Yuu: She's probably going to run away with Namura.
Miki: I-I can't go...
Yuu: Why?!
Miki: Because Meiko said she doesn't need me...
Yuu: Wasn't she just saying it wasn't like that?
Miki: No, that's not it. She only said that because she doesn't want to hurt my feelings. Meiko doesn't need me at all.
Yuu: Dummy! You've been best friends with her since middle school, right? she wouldn't be friends with you for this long if she didn't need you! Have a little faith! You don't want this to be the end, do you?!
Miki: No-oo..
Yuu: C'mon. I told you to stop being a crybaby.
Miki: Yuu, you'll come with me...
Yuu: Don't worry, I'll go. Let's hurry, kay?
Miki: Okay...!

--------

Volume 4

===

Yuu: You were racing Satoshi in the men's course? Why did you do that?
Miki: Well, um...(HUH?! Nurse's office. Alone with Yuu. This situation is...!! Oh god. I just remembered! Idiot, don't blush. Yuu is going to notice.)
Yuu: Oh yeah. Now I remember.
Miki: What do you mean?
Yuu: Don't pretend like you don't know. Again. Should I do it again?
Miki: Yuu, Yuu! Yuu! You got to be kidding me...
Yuu: Don't be so shy.
Miki: Ahhh, get off the bed! (What is he...thinking?)

--------

Miwa: She is so naive. You were right about teasing her...it's fun.
Yuu: Hmm.
Miwa: What's wrong? Does it bug you when I tease her too?
Yuu: ...not really...QUIT SMILING LIKE THAT!
Miki: (GRR...I promised...that I would save Yuu from him. I'M NOT GOING TO LOSE!!!)

--------

Yuu: Hey, are you done?
Miki: Wait!! My buttons...
Yuu: Should I button it for you?
Miki: Idiot.

--------

Miki: Um, Yuu?
Yuu: Huh?
Miki: Um...so...
Yuu: What? You have to go to the bathroom?
Miki: No!! Hand!! You've been holding my hand!
Yuu: Oh. What, you don't like it?
Miki: Huh? No, it's not that, but...
Yuu: Then it's okay. Right? Aren't you hungry? Let's go get something to eat!
Miki: (Since when did I...like him this much? I really really like Yuu. So much...)

--------

Miki: Do you want to be an architect?
Yuu: Well, I am interested. But I haven't decided for sure. I'm thinking of studying it in college.
Miki: We never talked about that before.
Yuu: Really?
Miki: Really. You could have told me you liked it this much...
Yuu: There's no point if you aren't interested in it. It'd just be boring, right?
Miki: I want to hear it, if you like it.
Yuu: Who cares? It has nothing to do with you.
Miki: Well that's...true, but...
Yuu: Ah...sorry, I said too much...
(Arimi: Yuu doesn't open up to people. But you are different.)
Miki: (Not really, Arimi. Yuu puts up a wall with me, too. I want him to tell me more.)

--------

Yuu: You're still mad about what happened.
Miki: No, not really!
Yuu: Then why do you avoid me?
Miki: I'm not avoiding you. Maybe you are being a little self-absorbed? (Wow, maybe I'm going too far...)
Yuu: I see. Fine then.
Miki: Wait, Yuu. I'm sorry. Don't get mad! It...it was because I was really sad. I thought it was better this way. That's why I...
Yuu: Sorry. I know you were worried about me. I didn't explain anything and just kept it a secret...I was going to keep it a secret from you...and not worry anybody. But as you got further away from me, I realized that this was the wrong thing to do. For sure. So, I'll tell you everything.

--------

Ginta: You can't come? Do you have to be with him?! Please come. It's a very important game. I want you to be watching.
Miki: Sorry, Ginta. I'm sorry... (I'm worried about Yuu. He looked like an abandoned puppy. I need to be near him...)

--------

Volume 5

===

Miki: Yuu...let's go home now.
Yuu: I'm going to stay a little longer.
Miki: You've already been here for an hour.
Yuu: Why don't you go ahead and go home.
Miki: The wind is starting to pick up. Let's go home.
Yuu: Yeah, I guess it's a little cold.
Miki: It sure is.
Yuu: Can you warm me up?
Miki: What...hey...Yuu...
Yuu: I always thought it was him. How could I have been so wrong? Damn it...!

--------

Yuu: After a while, you get used to it. It becomes so easy. I've become an unemotional stone. But you were different. When we first met, you started crying.
Miki: That was...just...
Yuu: Unlike me, you are always pure and passionate. You have no problem telling the whole world what you're feeling. That's why...I love you.
Miki: ...Really?
Yuu: I told you before. I kissed you because I love you. But you didn't believe me.
Miki: I-I-I love you too!
Yuu: Idiot. Don't you say things like that when you don't even mean them.
Miki: Wha--? I am totally serious.
Yuu: If you were in the same situation with Suou, would you say the same thing? Like the time you two were flirting in front of the house. Don't you love him?
Miki: No! It's true that I really like him...but only as a friend! I found out that Meiko was going out with Na-chan. That really bummed me out. I didn't like the idea that Meiko liked Na-chan more than me. So I realized...that I felt the same about Ginta. I didn't want to lose him because he's an important friend to me. But you're different. The one that...I truly love...is only Yuu.
Yuu: Your lips...they are turning blue. I'm sorry. I shouldn't keep you out here in the cold. We've been outside too long.
(Kiss on the beach...)

--------

Miki: Yuu...is it okay if your eggs are scrambled? I tried to make them sunny side up, but they fell apart.
Yuu: ...You don't seem like you were ever sick. It's amazing.
Miki: It's because I'm athletic. My body heals quickly.
Yuu: You're so rugged. Since I'm so delicate, unlike you, I still have a little fever.
Miki: Sure. Sorry to be tough and strong..

--------

Yuu: Wow...they look so warm.
Miki: Nice color, aren't they?
Yuu: Yeah, I like them. thank you. This is for you.
Miki: Aw...so cute...! A gold bracelet! Hmm..it's hard to put it on.
Yuu: Here, let me try. I'll put it on for you.
Miki: Thank you! I'll wear it everyday.
Yuu: Cool.
Miki: How beautiful...! It's so beautiful! It really is a white Christmas.
(Miki hugs Yuu)
Miki: I love you, Yuu. So much.
Yuu: Yeah. Me too.
Miki: (I have confidence that...my feelings will never change and I will always love you.)

--------

Miki: So, Ginta was denying it. But it seems like he's interested in Arimi.
Yuu: Hmmm.
Miki: I think he's starting to like her.
Yuu: Are you sad?
Miki: It's weird, but no. It's probably because you're with me. I don't think I'll feel lonely even if Meiko gets a new boyfriend.
Yuu: Haha, you calculating girl.
Miki: I know. (Since Yuu opened up his heart to me, he is very gentle. He's very sweet and loves to hug me. Of course, I don't mind. Yuu's warmth is so...comfortable.) Hey! (As usual, he teases me a lot).

--------

Miki: Can I go with you on your vacation?
Yuu: What?
Miki: Please, I'll go wherever you want to go. We could eat at nice places...and have fun together. <3 it'll="" be="">
Yuu: I'm sure it'll be fun but...don't you realize that...if you go on a vacation together...
Miki: (Ha...I didn't mean it--I didn't mean it that way...what should I do? I just said something really embarrassing. I meant like last yaer's family trip.)
Yuu: Do you really want to come with me?
Miki: I-I want to go.
Yuu: Okay! I'll take you.

--------

Miki: Ta-da! What do you think?
Yuu: What is that?
Miki: I'm going to work at an ice cream shop! And this is the uniform! Cute uniform, isn't it?
Yuu: Not bad. But isn't the skirt too short?
Miki: Really? It's not as shot as my tennis uniform...so I didn't think so.
Yuu: It looks good.
Miki: You mean it?
(Yuu points to area between his legs)
Yuu: Sit down.
(Miki sits apprehensively..)
Yuu: I got you now.
Miki: Oh! Yuu!

Volume 6

===

Yuu: Miki? Are you in here?
Miki: What?
Yuu: Sorry, I didn't know you were asleep.
Miki: I was just taking a nap.
Yuu: Tired? Are you over-extending yourself? You're even missing your favorite show!
Miki; Actually...I kind of fainted at work today.
Yuu: What?!
Miki: I'm okay now. It wasn't that big of a deal. They cut my schedule back one day a week to make my life easier. I just want to save money for our trip. I can handle it.
Yuu: That's why you started the part-time job? I told you I wanted to pay for it. I earned more than enough from the tv commercial...
Miki: No, it's okay. I'm going to pay for part of it, too. I always wanted to get a part-time job anyway. It's kind of fun.
Yuu: If you enjoy it, that's good...but don't overdo it, okay?
Miki: Okay. Thanks.
Yuu: Ginta is also worried about you. He was acting a little strange today.
((Miki hugs Yuu in the middle of the hallway))
Miki: Just a little while...
Yuu: ...Our parents might see..
Miki: (He is so warm. The bracelet is gone but...this is all I need. Yuu is always here for me. This is good enough.)

--------

Miki: (Yuu and Meiko went on a date behind my back. It must be some kind of mistake! There must be an explanation. Besides, Meiko loves Nachan. But...what is going on with Yuu?! Does Yuu like Meiko more than me now? No way! But why didn't they tell me anything about this?!)
Yuu: Miki, it's me!
Miki: Yuu...you scared me. When did you come home?
Yuu: Just now. I need to talk to you...before our parents come home!
Miki: Need...to talk? (Is it about you and Meiko...?)
Yuu: What did you do with the bracelet?
Miki: What?
Yuu: The bracelet! The one I gave you.
Miki: Oh...the bracelet...To tell the truth...I lost it at work. I looked for it so hard, but I couldn't find it. It's gone. I am so sorry.
Yuu: It's not gone. Kei Tsuchiya has it.
Miki: You're kidding!
Yuu: No. He showed it to me just now.
Miki: But he said he didn't know anything about it!
Yuu: He said you asked him to throw it away...because you don't like it.
Miki: Liar! That's a lie! I never told him that!
Yuu: Calm down! I don't believe him.
Miki: I don't get it. How could he say that...
Yuu: Don't you get it? He has a crush on you!
Miki: No way! He's a year younger than me.
Yuu: Being younger doesn't automatically exclude him as a potential boyfriend. I guarantee he doesn't think so! You are totally clueless! You must have been flirting with him! Just like you did with Ginta! You have to be more careful so you don't attract weirdos!
Miki: How can you...talk to me like that?!
Yuu: Get the bracelet back! See you.
Miki: WAIT! You can't just leave after saying whatever you want to say! I have something to say too!
Yuu: What?
Miki: Why did you have a date without telling me?
Yuu: Um, it wasn't a date. Let me explain. (How did she find out?)
Miki: Meiko is my best friend! Of all the girls, why Meiko? I can't believe it!
Yuu: Hey, wait a sec. Did you really think Meiko and I are fooling around? You're crazy! This is ridiculous.
Miki: Don't call me crazy! Don't be sneaky if you don't want to be misunderstood.
Yuu: There is no point in talking...to you!
Miki: YOU ARE SUCH A JERK! I am not going on a trip with you!
Yuu: FINE! I won't take you!
Miki: (This...is not fair! He doesn't have to get so upset! What did I do? Yuu is such a jerk!)

--------

Miki: (Yuu is not here. How can we make up if he's gone? Yuu...I wonder where he is and what he is doing. I really...miss him.)
((Phone rings))
Miki: Hello?
Yuu: Hey, Miki? It's me. Do you feel better now?
Miki: (YUU! He doesn't sound upset anymore) Wha...? Why? You sound like nothing has even happened between us. How could you do this to me? You left me behind. (This is the Yuu I know.)
Yuu: I'm sorry...I was so upset, and I even yelled at you. The way I acted was so embarrassing. I just wanted to think over what I said to you.
Miki: I got my bracelet back...and Meiko told me about the 'date' to the museum. Come back soon.
Yuu: Yeah. I'm coming home tomorrow. I'm in Iwate now. It's nice here. So many wide open spaces.
Miki: Iwate? I thought you went to Kitakyushu.
Yuu: We can go to Kitakyushu together. We still have some summer left. How about going there at the end of August?
Miki: Sure! Can you...call me before getting on the bullet train tomorrow? I want to pick you up at the station.
((Train station))
Yuu: Miki!
Miki: Yuu!! Welcome back! I missed you!
Yuu: I'm here now!

--------

Yuu: Hey, how is the guy doing?
Miki: What guy?
Yuu: That weirdo who has a crush on you.
Miki: Weirdo? You should talk!
Yuu: Yep, I'm an oddball too.
Miki: (That's what I was thinking...)
Yuu: Did he go back to his parents' house?
Miki: I don't know. I haven't seen him since that day. I heard he quit his job. I wonder if I was too harsh on him.
Yuu: Ah! You broke that little boy's heart.
Miki: What...?
Parents: What did you just say?!
Yuu: Miki made a young boy cry.
Parents: She toyed with his feelings? Oh my...
Miki: You total jerk! Don't change the story!

Volume 7

===

Yuu: Hahaha! That's beautiful.
Miki: It wasn't funny at the time! It was really scary.
Yuu: Sorry...that I laughed...Don't be mad. Okay?
~Yuu kisses Miki in the hallway~
Miki: His kiss can change my mood so easily. I'm so easy...
~Miki peers out of corner of eye to see the two twins staring at her and Yuu kissing~
Yuu: What are you two doing here?
Miki: He-hey girls. Don't tell anyone about what you saw here, okay?
Twin #1: Why?
Yuu: Let's keep it our little secret, all right?
Twin #2: A secret? Why?
Miki: Because, ah, just because! Got it?
Twin #1: Amusement park! Take me to an amusement park!
Twin #2: Me too!
Twins: Yeah yeah amusement park! Yeah, amusement park!
Miki: ...they blackmailed us...

--------

Miki: Hey Yuu. What's the exact date we're leaving for Kyusyu during the winter vacation?
Yuu: Well, how about after New Year's day? It's always crazed right before New Year's eve.
Miki: Okay, sounds like a good idea. Do you think it's going to be really cold? Isn't it too cold to go on a trip in January? Should we wait until it gets a little warmer? Like until spring break?
Yuu: I don't care how cold it will be. Let's go as planned. I can't wait!
Miki: Me too! We get to celebrate the holidays together too. I'm so excited!
Yuu: Me too.
Miki: Do you think the whole family will go out for dinner this year? Or, we can throw a shindig, and party with Ginta and Meiko! Yuu...there's something I want for Christmas. Do you mind if I ask?
Yuu: No...what do you want?
Miki: A ring!
Yuu: A ring? I'm not sure if I can afford one. We'll spend a lot on our trip, you know.
Miki: You could get me a cheap one! I'll cherish it, as long as it's from you! I'll put it on my finger and never take it off! Except when I'm working...
Yuu: All right. I'll buy you a ring.
Miki: Really? I'm so happy!! I love you, Yuu!!
Yuu: Speaking of which, I didn't give you anything for your birthday back in March. Even though...you gave me presents on my birthday and on Valentine's Day. Anything else you want for a belated birthday gift?
Miki: Don't worry about it, Yuu. You were busy working on the commercial, remember? I'll be happy just to get a ring.
Yuu: Are you sure? Then I'll let you take one thing from my room.
Miki: Your room?
Yuu: Yeah, go ahead! Whatever you want!
Miki: For...real? Well, if you insist...!! What should I take? Oh, I like your alarm clock. I always liked your pen. Your watch looks cool too. Um, well...I can't decide!
Yuu: (Eisaku: Youji Matsuura is your real father. And nobody else. Did he mean...that I should stop questioning? He's right...I probably should forget the whole thing and be happy with what I have. My family loves me so much and that should be enough. It doesn't matter if my dad is biological father or not. I will try to stop...thinking about my real father. I'll stop digging in my parents' past. I have Miki and my family. I'm lucky to have them...Everything is cool.)
Miki: Yuu! Can I have this shirt? It's one of your favorites.
Yuu: Sure, go ahead!
Miki: Thanks! How should I wear it? <3 i="" can="" wear="" it="" to="" bed,="" as="">
~Yuu pushes Miki into the closet~
Miki: What?!
~Yuu enters it and closes the closet door~
Miki: What...are you doing, Yuu?
Yuu: I never knew this closet was big enough for two.
Miki: Yuu, cut it out!!
Yuu: Our parents would never find us here. No matter what we do.
Miki: Dummy! If they find us here, we're going to be in serious...
~Yuu kisses Miki~
Miki: ...T-...T-Trouble. (Inside the small closet...we kissed again and again...and he held me tight. I was the happiest girl on earth. Little did I do know that...this dream would be shattered in just a few days.

--------

Yuu: Miki...I have something to tell you.
Miki: W...? What is it?
Yuu: ...Break up with me.
Miki: But...why? You don't...like me anymore?
Yuu: It's not that.
Miki: Are you in love with someone else?
Yuu: No.
Miki: Then why?
Yuu: I'm not in love with you anymore! I can't look at you.
Miki: As your girlfriend...? The passion is gone? ...You mean, you don't hate me...but you don't love me anymore...?
Yuu: ...That's right.
Miki: N...NO!! I can't just let you go!! Think it over again! If there is anything you don't like about me, I'll change it! I will try to be whatever you want me to be!! Please, Yuu...
Yuu: Miki, there's nothing wrong with you! It's not your fault. Don't blame yourself. It's just me being selfish. I don't love you as much as I used to.
Miki: If you don't hate me...then don't say you want to break up with me! I still love you! I love you very much.
Yuu: No...I can't be your boyfriend anymore. I'm sorry. (Please don't cry...This is the only way...it's hopeless for us. You are my half-sister!)
~Some minutes pass~
Yuu: I'm going to go home now...and this is...the ring I promised you. It was a promise after all. I can't bring you on the trip though...
Miki: I can't take it!!
Yuu: But...
Miki: I can't take it...if you don't love me anymore!!
Yuu: Take it as a present...not from a boyfriend, but from a family member. I can't use it myself. If you don't want to keep it...just throw it away.
Miki: No!! Don't...don't go! Come back here Yuu!! Yuu!!

--------

Miki: (Three months have passed. Yuu passed the entrance exam for Kyoto Institute of Technology. The day he left for Kyoto was a beautiful Sunday, blessed with spring sunshine.)
Yuu: I've got to...go now.
Miki: I know...This is to...congratulate you. It was supposed to be a Christmas present, but I never gave it to you. It's a watch. I hope you like it.
Yuu: Thanks. I will treasure it always.
Miki: Bye Yuu. Don't study too hard, okay?
Yuu: Goodbye, Miki.
~Miki is alone in bedroom now~
Miki: (Even if he doesn't love me anymore...even if I can't stare straight into his eyes...all I wanted was...to be with him. I still...love him so much. Oh Yuu...Things Yuu gave me...pearl bracelet. Checkered shirt. The ring in the box I never opened.) Where should I store them? That drawer is all right. (Goodbye...Yuu.) Well, I should go now. (Yuu gave me a lot of beautiful memories...I have to get over him and say farewell to Yuu as my boyfriend. I have to keep my head up and move on...)

Miki: (This is Yuu's university. It's so beautiful and peaceful. This is where Yuu is living a new life. A life apart from mine. Apart...Cherry trees...How pretty. They must have beautiful blossoms in spring. I wonder...what the cherry trees in my neighborhood look these days. Yuu and I used to take a detour on the way home just to see the cherry blossoms. Such a sweet memory...)

Miki: I love cherry blossoms. My favorite thing about the spring is to be able to see the pretty pink flowers. Too bad they won't last too long. Hope it won't rain for a while. Hey! Do you want to go pick cherries this year?
Yuu: What?
Miki: You know, you get cherries after the blossoms. I would like to eat as many cherries as I could possibly stuff in my mouth. Or we can go pick strawberries instead. Cherry Blossoms remind me of cherries the fruit.
Yuu: A minute ago, you were making a big deal out of "beautiful pink flowers." Now you are thinking about eating? Food rather than beautiful flowers, hm?
Miki: Food? Actually, I'm getting hungry. Wanna stop at a sweets shop on the way home?
Yuu: You are such a...No wonder you've put on twenty more pounds.
Miki: How do you know that?!
Yuu: I heard you saying that in the bathroom the other day.
Miki: Did you spy on me?!
Yuu: Of course not. You said it so loud that everyone at home could hear it.

--------


Miki: Come here Yuu! It's so nice and cool in the shade.
Yuu: You don't wanna get too close to the tree.
Miki: Why not?
Yuu: A caterpillar might fall on you. THERE! On your shoulder!
Miki: ?!!
Yuu: Hahaha! I got you!
Miki: Knock it off, Yuu! You scared...

Yuu: Wha...what...?

--------

Miki: (Those sweet memories...we were so happy...can't we go back to the way it was? Do we have to give up completely on the past? How...can I...forget about you, Yuu...!)
Yuu: Miki?!
Miki: Yuu...
Yuu: What are you doing here? Did you come all the way to see me?
Miki: Ye...yes..I see you're still wearing the watch.
Yuu: Yeah.
Miki: You got a haircut...
Yuu: Yeah..You should have called me. What are the odds you would have bumped into me here?
Miki: I didn't call because I was afraid. You might tell me not to come. I missed you. I couldn't help myself...!
Yuu: Miki...
Miki: I know I have to get over you. It's been so hard. I can't help loving you. I can't live without you. I need you, Yuu. I love you!
Saho: Yuu. I'll see you in class.
Yuu: Can you...wait for me a second?
Miki: Oh! I'm sorry...I didn't know you were with a friend.
Yuu: She's...not just a friend. This is Saho Takayama. We are in the same seminar together. We have so much in common and get along so well. She's my girlfriend. Miki. I'm sorry...there's nothing I can do for you.
Miki: (Yuu...has a girlfriend.) I understand...sorry to bother you...by coming on such short notice. Takayama-san...sorry if I shocked you.
Saho: Oh no..
Miki: I'm going home...Yuu. Goodbye.
Yuu: ....

Yuu: (Miki. I'm sorry. Fuzzy thoughts like those before kept Miki from completely getting over me. Because I didn't make it clear enough, that made it difficult for her to forget. And I hurt her again...Should I have told her that I hated her? Then would she have been hurt only once? But...How could I have said such a thing? All I could do was to pretend I didn't love her anymore. I could never say I hate Miki. Even if it is a lie. Miki!)

--------


Yuu: (This is the Miki I know. The Miki...I love. She's really over it. Thank goodness. I wonder if she has a new boyfriend. Even though it was my decision to push her away, I feel sad. How stupid. This is the way it should be..Miki is doing all right. She is okay. Now it's my turn. It's my turn to forget about Miki. I have to put everything behind me. Everything.)

--------

Yuu: Do you...have a new boyfriend? S-sorry. You don't have to tell me if you don't want to.
Miki: Even now...I still...love you.
Yuu: Wha...
Miki: Knowing you are in a new relationship makes it easier for me to accept the current situation. I mean, I don't cry anymore or get depressed thinking about you. But my feelings for you haven't changed a bit. I know you don't love me anymore and this is unrequited love...and it's hard. But I'm lucky enough to have someone to care about. I just can't help loving you...
Yuu: Mik...
Miki: Don't worry. I won't get in your way. I will always be a part of this family, and I will be nothing more than your stepsister. But in my heart I will always...
Yuu: NO! That won't work. That's not the way I want it.
Miki: ...Why? I won't bother you in any way. My love for you...I will cherish my feelings toward you forever. Why don't you allow me to do at least that? Is that too much to ask?
Yuu: It's no use. Why don't you understand?
Miki: I don't want to understand! Just forget it! I am talking about my feelings. It's none of your business anyway. You fell out of love with me and dumped me your way. I treasure my feelings my way.
Yuu: Hey Miki!
Miki: Just drop it. End of discussion.
Yuu: Mi...
Miki: Check this out! How beautiful!

Yuu: Miki...
Miki: Stay there, Yuu. Sorry, but don't come near me now. Just leave me alone...

Yuu: Miki!
Miki: I told you...to leave me alone. I've been trying so hard...not to cry...not to ruin it.

Yuu: Sorry, Miki! I'm sorry. It's a lie that I don't love you anymore. I lied to you about Saho being my girlfriend too. I still love you. I love you so much. But...no matter how much we love each other, it's not right. We shouldn't be together, Miki.
Miki: I...I don't understand. Yuu, what are you talking about?

--------

Miki: Yuu...do me a favor.
Yuu: What is it?
Miki: Remember the trip to Kyusyu you promised me last summer? Take me there. And...be my boyfriend again once more. I want to be together just like the old days. I want to make one last sweet memory with you. After that, I will try to forget you. I will stop dwelling on it.
Yuu: Okay. I'll take you there.

--------

Miki: Tomorrow we're finally going to the Huis Ten Bosch! We both should read about the place in the guide book before we go. I hear it isn't a huge place. We should decide where to go ahead of time. I just can't wait. (But...Huis Ten Bosch will be the last place for this trip- the last place we can go together as a couple. Tomorrow we will head back to Tokyo. Then everything will be over. Everything...)

Miki: No...don't take a picture of me that close! Hey! I said no!

Miki: I told you not to...Yuu...I look terrible in closeups.
Yuu: There's nothing you can do about your face now.
Miki: ...

--------


Miki: (The magic moment will soon come to an end...and we will be pulled back to reality. I wish...time would just stop forever)

Miki: I wanted to see more.
Yuu: Me too. We should probably...go back to the hotel now. Miki?
Miki: I want to be with you...just a little longer.
Yuu: Okay..let's go get some coffee somewhere.

Waitress: Excuse me. We're closing up now. Can I bring you the check?
Yuu: Sure. They're closing now.
Miki: Yeah.
Yuu: Should we go?

Yuu: Miki, good night.
Miki: Good night, Yuu.
Yuu: What's wrong?
Miki: N..no...nothing...
Yuu: Oh...I thought you lost your key or something. I know you. Ha ha.
Miki: How could you say that! I have the key in my pocket.
Yuu: Why don't you go ahead and go into your room then.
Miki: After you...

Yuu: Marry me. Of course, not right now...as soon as I graduate and get a job.
Miki: Do you know...what you are talking about? It's all wrong.
Yuu: It's not impossible! The family registry doesn't show we are biologically related. We can still legally get married.
Miki: But..we are related by blood!
Yuu: I DON'T CARE! I can't stop loving you. I've made up my mind. I'd break any rules or moral code...just to be with you! It's not going to be easy for either one of us. We can't have children and will always have a sense of guilt. We might end up living a guilt-ridden life, loathing ourselves...but I am ready for that. I will do anything to live the rest of my life with you. Can you...handle this with me? Miki?
Miki: I will go through anything with you. Forever...with you.


--------

Miki: Do you remember you told me not to fall in love with Yuu, Mom? Did you really mean that you were merely afraid of making things more complicated?
Rumi: Oh...I remember saying something like that...You know, I was just being protective of you. Yuu is so handsome and popular with the girls, I thought he was a player and a heartbreaker. I didn't want you to fall in love with him in vain. I wouldn't want to see my daughter brokenhearted. But you two ended up loving each other. That's great! But, when did it happen?
Youji: I kinda had a feeling...
Jin: I had no clue.
Miki: Then...we can...stay together as a couple.
Chiyako: Of course.
Miki: I can...keep loving Yuu!

Jin: HEY! Yuu, stay away from my daughter! How dare you...right before my eyes!

--------

Miki: Are they going to Hawaii again? Leaving their kids alone?
Yuu: Let them do whatever they want. You can come to my place in Kyoto. We can spend some quality time alone there.
Miki: Yuu...

Jin: OVER MY DEAD BODY! You'll both go to Hawaii with us. We'll never leave you alone together!
