Episode 2: Is it really over?

After spending time together at the fireworks celebration, Kazuma and Ren treated each other as close friends again. In fact, they started having lunch together again. However, because Ren has become successful in his career, he’s swamped. Even so, he still made time to have lunch with Kazuma, which made him touched by this simple gesture.

While on his way home, Kazuma ran into his and Ren’s old classmate, Hide. They agreed to have dinner together and catch up. Hide mentioned that all the people in their class wondered why Kazuma and Ren suddenly went their separate ways and studied overseas in different countries that summer a decade ago. He said that they heard “weird rumors” but did not explicitly explain what those rumors were. Kazuma, seemingly lost in thoughts, said that Ren and him are both doing well and they were working in the same place. After catching up, Kazuma bid goodbye to his old friend promising to keep in touch. After leaving, however, Hide cried, saying he absolutely can’t say something to Kazuma.

The next day, Kazuma told Ren that he met Hide last night. Ren was surprised that they met and that they also talked about him. When Kazuma said that they should meet Hide together, Ren flatly said that he doesn’t want to meet Hide and that he shouldn’t either. Kazuma asked if they fought but Ren only said that he doesn’t want to see him and refused to say the real reason why.

Kazuma’s thoughts came back to that summer a decade ago. It was when he was hospitalized and was unconscious for a whole month, not knowing what truly happened. Despite being reunited with Ren, they never really talked about that incident. Kazuma once again remembered that time when they were young and Hide told Kazuma that he will be meeting with his girlfriend to have sex. Since the topic of dating came up, young Ren asked young Kazuma if he also wants to date a girlfriend. Kazuma hesitated but said yes and listed down activities that he will do with a hypothetical lover, which the two of them already do.

The next few days, Kazuma was tasked to pick Ren up after an award event so he could attend a celebratory meal with the company. But as he was picking Ren up, he saw Ren’s old high school friend, Yagami, from France being very close to him. Yagami joked that they had a relationship together, which made Kazuma look quite uncomfortable. But on the way out of the building, Ren made it clear that Yagami was only someone he went to school with in France and that there was nothing more. But Kazuma seemingly had enough and asked him about what really happened in everything: the summer of 10 years ago, why he changed his last name, and what was it about Hide? Ren didn’t answer.

The two of them attended the celebration as promised, but Kazuma was still in deep thought about their earlier confrontation. He thought about when they were kids and they were studying together at Ren’s house. When Ren stepped out for a bit, Kazuma saw a message on Ren’s phone saying a person would want to meet him at a love hotel, which surprised Kazuma.

The next day, because he knew where they would meet, Kazuma waited for Ren and the person he was going to meet at that love hotel. Kazuma threatened the person Ren met that he would call the police because he was meeting a minor, which made the person leave. But Ren insisted that he was there on his own accord and that he only wanted to experience sex. Ren asked Kazuma why was he being so hard-headed, was it because the person Ren wanted to have sex with was a man? As Ren was leaving, Kazuma took his hand and said if all Ren wanted to experience was sex, he should do it with him.

Back in the present day, Kazuma had to deal with a very drunk Ren. He sent him home and gave him water to help him sober up, but they stumbled and suddenly they are in an intimate position. Ren told him that he should stop being so nice or else he will be misunderstood, and Kazuma said he doesn’t care about that. Ren stood up and asked him to go home. But Kazuma hugged him and told him they should go to bed.

Things are definitely getting heated, especially with the preview showing us that the two will become more intimate. But will Kazuma ever get the answers he has been seeking? Will Ren tell him or will they just continue as friends and sweep the past under the rug? Let’s find out in the next episode this coming Friday!
