Well, this is taking an unexpected turn… but that was to be expected really. :grin:

I admit I read ahead a bit until the next break point because I didn’t wand to stop there. This is the point that would have probably hooked me into reading faster until I finished the book if there was no schedule.

I find it interesting how the protagonist intentionally dumbs herself down in order to win his affection. Seems a bit old-fashioned and sexist from my perspective :upside_down_face:

This bit cracked me up:

たとえ強姦されたとしても、彼がするならそれはさぞかし礼儀正しい強姦なのだろうと判っていた。

I was confused about the bit at the end. The fact Ken had been there had been irritating her all night, so when he went to the toilet she ‘spiked’ his drink with pushpins that had been holding up a calendar up to that point…? And that causes Youji to hit her?

That’s how I understood it.

I’m really interested to see how far she is going to take this, she seems to get more and more childlike around him :sweat_smile:
