Sunako wakes up from a horrible dream and is preoccupied when the four guys tell her that since their bathroom's broken, they'll use hers. She then complains that she won't go to school, and Takano tells her to quit her whining and get ready or he'll cut her more. She
As school fans questions on Sunako's relationship with the four, a beautiful girl, nicknamed Naie-chan) shows up and goes looking for Oda (one of the four guys whose rich family are masters of ikebana, a Japanese-style of flower arranging.) Naie-chan tells her how lucky she is to be living with Oda (who has hidden somewhere). Sunako offers a switch, for which Takano immediately and firmly (and darkly) objects. As Naie-chan and Takano quarrel, Sunako marvels on how perfect match the two were (What is up with the society and its obsession for good looks?)
Later on, Tanako drags the roped Sunako, and when they come across a mirror, she purposely kicks it to piece. She thinks, "I've lived happily because I have never looked at myself in the mirror for the past 2 years."
After dinner, Sunako, who has eaten separately, cleans up . When she's finished she walks to the bathroom, already naked, for a shower, only to find Tanako himself showering. She screams in astonishment. The other guys rush to the room, and she covers herself up. She ponders over the fact that it was her fist time seeing a guy naked and how his body is more beautiful than hers. (awkward...)
A blushing Tanako ends up with a fever, and the guys hand all the responsibilities of taking care of him to her. (Okay, so not only have you turned the kind landlady's niece into a cook and a dishwasher, she's now a caretaker?) He's more demanding than ever; he wants a strawberries, hot choco, ice cream, yogurt, and popsicles, as well his room cleaned and laundry done. Infuriated, she is astonished when he suddenly starts to apologize about the shower scene. Not knowing what to do, she flees.
She bumps into Naie, ( more formally spelled as Noi, so I'll go with that starting now.) She picnics with her and there she confesses that to Noi that merely the oh-too-radiant looks of his causes her to shake and her nose to bleed. Noi guesses that she likes Tanako. She immediately denies it, and so Noi encourages here to clean up and make him feel the way she does. Sunako comments on how radiant people like her always talk so easily, adding that she shouldn't associate her with her other "species." Noi grimly informs her that as someone who has never tried, she doesn't have the right to talk about her like that. She continues arguing, asking her what the heck is so good about looks? As long as anyone works hard, that person can always look good. Again, Sunako thinks that only radiant people can say such things.
Sunako comes back inside the house, handing Tanako his soup. Unable to do it himself, she is forced to help him change, and she does so awkwardly.
Distracted, Sunako does a horrible job at cooking, and the three guys complain. Oda asks if Noi came by, and they start to talk about how she worked hard for her looks (she was ugly back in middle school).
Flustered, she walks up to Tanako's room and changes his fever patch. As she looks at his "radiance," she grabs a pair of scissors to plunge into him. Thankfully, the other guys stop her just in time.
.........End of Chapter..........
Thoughts: The chapter was good, though the last scene I didn't enjoy much. It makes Sunako looks like a freaky murderer. One thing that will really get annoying, though, if it continues on, is Sunako's resistance on morphing from a caterpillar into a butterfly (or an ugly duckling to a swan).
But we're only three chapters on, so who knows?
