Let's forget it.

You graduate in less than a year.

lt won't affect how we get along.

But that manga really isn't mine.

That's why l didn't think it was fair

that l was the only one made to stand.

Sasaki, let's me and you stop

poking sticks in each other's wounds.

You can ignore me

and l'll ignore you. All right?

Stop there.

Let's have more emphasis

between crescendo and diminuendo.

again, from here.

Good, good. And continue.

And more forceful here.

What was that other piece in C Major

that you learned to play so well?

Let's see...

We're sorry to keep you waiting.

Ticket holder 86, please proceed

to window number one?

Your hours are midnight

to 9:
00 in the morning.

lt's security guard work,

but they've never had a single robbery.

So you don't have to worry.

Sasaki-san, how about

administrative work?

-l'm much more suited to that.

-Well, then...

-Maybe this is more suitable for you.

-Yes, please.

Manager at a Happy Mart store.

Monday to Friday.

00am to 3:00pm, 850 yen an hour.

As l wrote it in the form

you gave me,

l used to be Administrative Director

at Tanita.

There's no easy way to say this,

but it'll be 100% impossible for you

to match your former position.

-Sorry to keep you waiting...

-There you go.

Here's this month's salary.

l think it's time we bought a new one.

l guess it can wait till bonus time.

Where's Takashi?

He left this afternoon

for one of his classes.

l see.

l hope he's not getting into trouble.

Yeah , right...

Your exams are coming up soon, too.

Do your best.

l think l'd like to play piano.

l want to play piano. lt's okay, right?

No way.

Why not?

lt's just a whim.

Maybe you should learn to play

in music class at school.

No means no.

-You're back.


-l saved some food for you.
