I love your hair today!! Kyouko's brows twitched as she knowingly envisioned Sho's thoughts: I am soo ripped! I should comb my hair more often!! Her demons were getting too violent to handle everyday being exposed to this torture. She had been fine and doing well without Sho in her class. She was blessed for the past two years of relatively "peaceful" if you detached the moments of unluckiness, such as running to beagle, pedo and blondie over there high school life.
But to submit her to this was nothing short of catapulting her to the 13th depth of hell with an excruciatingly painful thrashing and much pleading to no avail from her counselor to move her somewhere far, faaarr from her very bane of existence.
She had to work extra hard not to keep sharpening her pencils and not to think bloody thoughts of how easy it was to bash a certain someone. But it was really, really hard. Especially when she could just end it all in one swooping stab of her pen— "Sho-chan, how do you keep such flawless skin? Your hands are sooo soft! Don't touch Sho-chan with your dirty hands, newbie!
What gave you right?! Sho-chan is all ours! We can kill him now! Although she was just as ready to comply, there was still the thought of her "Grand Humiliation" for Sho, and she would be damned first before she blew it all and have the years of wallowing in revenge be for naught. You just need to calm down and act like a good, quiet girl. Please get in your seats! She thought she'd find reprieve from the horde of girls surrounding the ever notorious playboy of the whole high school, but unfortunately she was stuck with him for a remainder of another year.
Sho smiled at her while she glared. And she'd proven that before by socking him a good one in his freshman year. From then on, he'd begrudgingly began to respect her Can we please, please, pleeeaaassseee sit next to Sho just for this day—" "No," she really wished she could transfer all these squawking girls out of her class.
It was pity that all of them were attached—well Shoko's eyes strayed to the far corner where a gloomy, dark girl sat. He could survive a blunt rejection but he couldn't survive being fooled. In his perception, she had betrayed him after making an eternal promise, she made him look like a fool in front of everyone. He loved her more than his own life and yet she left him without any explanation. He waited for her but she didn't come.
He didn't know how to reach her because she didn't inform anyone before leaving. Did he do something wrong to make her hate him and run away? Why didn't she tell him before leaving? Not even a single text?
Was he that loathsome? Why did she do that to him? They were so happy together and were ready to be bound in an inseparable relationship then why did she leave right before their wedding day? Did she regret falling for him? Did she regret her decision to accept him? His fear became reality. He wasn't good enough for her after all. She pretended she wasn't afraid of him when she was so afraid to run away without any notice, without any care of his heartbreak.
Why didn't he get it sooner? She entered in Showbiz for Shoutaro Fuwa in the first place then how could she be with someone else? May be she realized it later that she loved Sho not him and left out of guilty.
He was deeply broken. He wanted to see her so badly but he didn't know where she was. He didn't know how to reach her.
Kanae, Lory, Maria and Yashiro all of them were confused and worried sick and wanted desperately to know about the reason of her sudden departure but they were helpless. They didn't know what happened that made her leave. They tried to ask Ren but he didn't say a word. He had closed his heart completely. He just forced himself to live because he just had to. He had no choice. He had work to do. But when Ren thought he could live without her, she came back bringing back the pain and bitter memories with her.
He shut her off. He pushed her away from him. He turned cold towards her. He wanted so badly to be with her again, to hold her in his arms again, to feel alive again but he was scared to give in again. He was scared of another betrayal. He was scared to know that she was sorry to leave him because she didn't love him anymore.
He couldn't bear it. He didn't have the heart to bear her loss. He couldn't see her with another man especially with Fuwa so he had no option but to put his heart on guard, to build up a strong wall around him so that she could never reach him, never feel how weak he was around her. He loved her so much. She meant the world to him but she didn't even think to inform him before leaving. Was he so invaluable in her life?
Why did she play with his heart like that? Was he a toy? Was her love confession an act? If it was then she really was a great actress. He loved her so much but her betrayal turned his deepest love into hatred. When she came back to Japan out of nowhere, he turned murderous. He wanted to hurt her so that she could feel the same pain that she had given him then why did he let her in when she came to visit him at midnight?
He wanted to shut the door on her face but why did he let her in? His bleeding heart that ached for her didn't let him to be so cruel.
Kyoko's heart trembled hearing his rude voice after a long time. He hadn't spoken to her ever since she returned. He just ignored her. If not then leave, don't waste my time. I need some sleep" he said rudely without caring about the harshness of his tone. She deserved this cold behavior. She asked for it herself. She had to endure the pain that she had put him through then why was his heart breaking apart?
Why was he feeling like someone had put hot iron on his chest? Kyoko clenched her hands even more tightly, her knuckles turning white. Her face was turning pale with each passing second. Her heart was beating madly. She didn't know what to say. The man before her was totally different.
He wasn't the man she fell in love with. He wasn't the man who always treasured her. He was someone she didn't know. She felt like crying. Tears were demanding to come out of her eyes but tried her best to put herself together. He had clearly told her that she meant nothing to him. No one would accept her after what she had done. She deserved his brutal treatment. She hung her head, closing her eyes, her bangs hiding her face expression.
I won't take much of your time Aren't you shameless Mogami-san? Kyoko's heart fell into her stomach. She wanted to scream and tell him how much she loved him and how deeply sorry she was to leave him behind but she couldn't let him know.
In The Forest Of Stories: Review: Skip Beat! vols by Yoshiki Nakamura
She couldn't bear his hatred. She could bear if the world hated her but she couldn't stand his hatred. She wasn't good enough for him. She was not pure for him anymore. He deserved someone better not a broken person like her so she left even if her heart desired to be with him. She left in order to save him. She left so that she didn't have to face his disgust towards her.
If he came to know what happened, he would never accept her and despise her for the rest of his life. She knew that and she couldn't bear it so she left. Ren kept his gaze at wall. He didn't look at her. He didn't want to give in to his heart's desire. His heart was screaming at him to hold her, to comfort her and to tell her how much he loved her but he didn't want to be fooled again.
He didn't want to hear that she didn't love him and came here only to apologize for hurting him and for falling in love with him mistakenly when she actually was in love with the singer. Ren clenched his jaw. He knew he was hurting her. He knew he needed to listen to her. He knew there must be a reason why she left and he needed to understand but he wasn't ready. His heart wasn't strong enough anymore to withstand another deadly shock.
Tears were already welling up in her eyes.
She was in verge of tears. She didn't know how to start conversation with him. Her shoulders started shaking. Her heart was sinking. She raised her head to look at him but his gaze was fixed at the wall of his living room.
Diamonds and Coal Chapter 2: Of Pencils and Sharpeners, a skip beat! fanfic | FanFiction
Kyoko gathered some strength to talk because that's why she was there. She wanted so desperately to see him, to talk to him. Thirty-four volumes are available in English. Each chapter peals back another layer of this universe. The slower pace also makes the reader really, really want the answers to certain questions. How did Moko get so hard? Is Sho even capable of being a decent person? It takes time to make your mark in any creative business. Neither does she fall straight into these relationships to come to mean so much to her.
She works hard to build something with the people who matter to her, and to establish connections based on more than fleeting fondness. Consequently, these relationships carry great weight throughout the story.
She never wants to love again because she expects love not only to hurt her put also to turn her back into the person she used to be. It takes a lot of time to work through. Art, Structure, and Genre Nakamura imbues her art with a glorious sense of movement; another element that helps the pacing feel organic rather than laboured. Each panel skillfully directs the reader from one moment to the next, allowing us to take in the full range of each emotion the characters experience, often from multiple perspectives within the space of a handful of pages.
She privileges reactions over settings, so her panels are uncluttered and character-focused--unless clutter is decidedly in-character, as when Lory arrives on the scene, or when the setting tells us something important about how these people relate to one another.
Nakamura renders this process organically, in such a way that the reader lives it alongside the characters. An example, presented in miniature because I'm not sure of its provenance but I really want to show you what I'm on about. Her captioning is as multi-layered as the story it tells.
On occasion, this process happens with two characters at the same time, each person's response complementing or contrasting with the other. Nakamura often ends one chapter moments before an important confrontation, only to start the next several hours later in the timeline. She gives us the answers we want via a series of flashbacks to the most important defining moments of each encounter, spread across the next thirty pages. It adds yet another level of complexity to both the story and the characterization.
And damn, is it ever tense. It features things like auras and grudge-selves, yeah, but I assumed they were metaphorical; a visual representation of what was going on inside Kyoko's mind, rather than something that existed in the physical world. And yet, psychics exist.
One character kills technology whenever he touches it bare-handed. Another is quite literally at war with himself. I'm not sure if this is standard practice with real-world manga I've mostly read unambiguous SFF to datebut I hope so because I love it. I myself love it to the ends of the earth and could probably gush about it for another six thousand words--but yeah.
