I’ve just read chapter 199 of Skip Beat! in Baidu.
I have to admit that I’m pissed at the change in this chapter. I’m also sad.
Why am I pissed and sad? Let me elaborate!
Ren as Cain did a reckless thing. Why did he even pat Manaka’s head? If he meant to make Setsu/Kyouko jealous, he made it. But then with that action, he also killed his chances with her.
He actually stated that he thought of the girl as scared hamster. And he said just so to both Setsu and Murasame. But the fawning girl didn’t take a hint and Murasame had to drag her away. Can had even said that she was annoying.
Meanwhile, Kyouko admitted her own feelings. She knew perfectly what she was feeling. Sure she made excuses that it was Setsu but inwardly she admitted that she expressed the feelings she could never express as herself.
Her sad blank look made me so sad. It was the same look when she saw Shou kissing another girl.😦 It made me hate Fuwa Shoutarou even more. Phew after all, he must have known Kyouko’s feelings towards him and yet he used her as his maid then discarded her when he got famous. That’s unforgivable! It made me want to punish him all over again. I did it once in the fiction I wrote. LOL.
Okay, so in Kyouko’s mind. Ren told her to not keep stepping back because she was already at the edge of the cliff. Kyouko looked at his hands and thought that those hands would only made her forced to reveal something that she had been hiding desperately. She didn’t want him to know those feelings.
She chose to jump! And the end, her box was opened with bunches of keys beside it.
Okay, it intrigued me. So, in other words, do anybody agree with me that Ren has killed his chances with her? He should do something soon. Jump along with her or what. I’m sure that outside the Heels act, she would avoid him like the plague. Well, he could be happy that he made her jealous, but… would he stay happy if she avoids him later?
Also, till when Nakamura sensei intends to make the readers wait for something to happen between these two characters? It’s 11 years already though one year hasn’t passed in the manga. But hello, it’s been dragging too far. Now, it’s once a month update, not biweekly anymore, it got us even more agitated. =.= I honestly will drop this manga if it’s not finished in 25 more chapters. It meant 2 more years. Cause, I’ve been following this manga since its first release. I’m getting tired with this.
What made me hang on there is that there is Fan Fiction. Thanks to Fan Fiction, at least I can read a happy ending. Yes, I only choose those with happy endings and less drama.
