Fireworks in April is the 3rd chapter of Taamo's Taiyou no Ie.
Hiro decides the curfew time for Mao: Curfew at 7, T.V off by 11, Lights out by 12. This is the first curfew that Mao needs to follow. The other rules are to eat breakfast and dinner together as much as possible, leave together in the morning, and pray at the shrine. This chapter also has the first appearance of Wakaba, the green turtle.
The scene changes, and Mao is at school, talking to her friend Chihiro (who she calls "Chi-chan") and Oda . Afterwards, Mao updates her novel and gets a reply from a fan named Radical suggesting that one of the main characters (Kaoru portraying Motomiya Mao) might have feelings for another (Takashi who portrays Nakamura Hiro).
Oda tells Mao about a social gathering and invites her to come, and Mao is happy since her curfew is at 7, so she will be back at the house by that time. However, the fireworks from last year didn't work, so Mao came back at 5 looking dissapointed.
Therefore, Hiro took Mao out and lighted his fireworks left over from last year. Mao's curfew is at 7 as well as Hiro's so they went back home together holding hands. Mao feels that holding hands with Hiro is weird. She also wonders if it is ok, if it was natural, to hold hands walking in the dark with a childhood friend.
Characters in Order of AppearanceEdit
Mao [thoughts about Hiro]: It's a bit creepy seeing Hiro do the house chores. I wonder if this is what they call motherly?
Hiro: It's the green turtle, Wakaba.
Hiro: How rude. He's part of the family. Poor thing, treating you like a cockroach. Right, Wakaba?
Mao [thoughts]: I'm sorry. Actually... regarding my new mom... I really don't know anything about her.
House of the Sun cellphone novel entry: I ended up living together with my childhood friend, Takashi. Together with the dog-shaped Croquette, we live under the same roof... But, I wonder if me being here is a burden on him?
Radical [message to Kuukai(Mao)]: The new update was very lovely!! I was able to understand Kaoru's feelings. The feeling that Kaoru has towards Takashi, wouldn't that be considered love? It's getting very interesting!
Mao [thoughts]: Having someone to wait for you... telling you to come home by a certain time... It's my... first time, you know?
