Episode 6: Losing Happiness
Kazuma watches as Ren leaves for his weekend meeting, kissing him on the way out and telling him to take care along the way. After Ren’s meeting, however, he meets Kazuma’s mother as he was about to go home. The two decide to talk in a coffee shop, with Kazuma’s mother being completely intimidating towards Ren. She asks for a business card, which Ren readily gives. She notices that Ren changed his last name from the last time and found out that he is working in the same company as Kazuma. Ren explains that they only entered the company by complete chance. Kazuma’s mother asked if they have met each other privately, and Ren denies that they have met each other. However, Ren realizes that the shirt he is wearing was actually designed by Kazuma’s mother, completely revealing that he lied about seeing Kazuma in private. Kazuma’s mother looked at Ren in what can only be described as disgust and said that the shirt he is wearing doesn’t suit him, before leaving him alone at the coffee shop.
Ren’s whole world turned upside down. He broke down crying, saying sorry to Kazuma for liking him. Kazuma sent him a text message saying he is waiting at home… not knowing what Ren just experienced. Back at Kazuma’s house, he noticed that it started raining, and out of concern that Ren didn’t bring an umbrella, he got his jacket and an umbrella to wait for Ren. However, Ren didn’t go home, nor did he tell Kazuma where he went. It was raining, just like the last time they separated 10 years ago.
Kazuma tried to reach Ren, but he was not answering his calls. He goes back home in hopes of seeing Ren there, but he was still nowhere to be found. Kazuma sits and realizes Ren is gone.
