Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit
Mao [thoughts about Hiro]: Even if you say that you are sorry. The feeling on my hand... and on my shoulder... still remains from... where you touched them.
Hiro: Shall we have lunch? What do you want to eat?
Mao: I want gyuudon.
Hiro: Why do you like historical movies so much?
Mao: Dad likes them, so we watched one together. I thought we could have a talk, but we became so engrossed in the middle of the movie that it never happened.
Oda [to Mao]: You always kept your head down with that same expression. Ever since freshmen year, whenever I tried talking to you, you never smiled. Although I once saw you make a different expression. I won't say when. I don't have any plans to cheer you on with that guy, but I can at least make you feel better. When all you do is worry, imagine that everything is the way you want them to be. And then just go with the flow.
Mao [thoughts]: The way I want... things to be? I don't want any pity. I don't want any guilt. I want to properly confront Hiro. And I want to talk things through with my father. Without running away.
Mao [thoughts]: I'll make my wish come true. I want to let Hiro know my true feelings. I can't stay like this. I don't want to lie about my feelings.
