Chapter 5 - Walking in the Light
After accepting Takano's offered roses, Sunako has to wonder why she finds the enchanting roses so beautiful. Suddenly, Miss Landlady is back; she tells them that she'll have a dinner party, expects a lady-like nices, and leaves. Panicking, the guys take immediate action. They ambush Sunako and because she's unwilling to at least pretend she is a lady, they offer her a bribe: a gory videotape. She accepts.
Unfortunately, despite their coaching, they fail, and Sunako falls on her face after tumbling down a flight of stairs. Later on, though, Takano takes on the task of turning her into a lady again, alone. Sunako asks him why he even pays attention to her when she can never change anyways. Now pissed off, he tells her fine, adding, "A girl like you is really an ugly girl."
A few days later, the four boys realize that they have forgotten to feed Sunako, who has stayed isolated in her room. Seeing a dejected Sunako, the three guys attack Takano for not only forgetting to give her her food, but also for calling her "ugly." The demanding one defends himself, saying a girl overflowing with self pity is an ugly girl.
The three guys leave the two alone, and Sunako starts to eat. When she's finished, Takano soflty informs her that even though he doesn't know the scale of how much she liked him, whoever dumped her is not the only guy in the world; she shouldn't destroy her life just because of him.
The next day marks the day of the ball, and the guys, together with Noi, show up in outfits befitting their "radiant-ness" (as Sunako would put it). Just as when they are looking for her, Sunako shows up, beautiful, neat, and lady-like. She gracefully walks down the stairs and further impressing the guests, she properly speaks English. The guys are tearful at this "improvement", but Takano spots her starting to falter. He hands her orange juice, and the rest of the people starts to comment on how the two would make the perfect couple (all based on their looks. =_=)
Everything's looking good, until some perverted (and disgusting) old man start to assualt Noi (yes, even in the party). Sunako, following her protective instincts, kicks the guy's butt. The guys tells Takano to stop her, but he refuses, and with a smile. (=D) Along with the other guys, he becomes disappointed, however, when Miss Landlady tells them they'll have to pay rent--but half off. Ignoring their tears, Sunako blissfully (just had to put that in) and contentedly watches her gory video. (T.T)
