Sure is quiet.

You've got that right.


Want to take off'?

You can if you'd like.

I'll be fine on my own.



Well, not because I want to work.


I think you already know this,

EM? I]...

am in love with you.

I love you. Please go on a date with me.

Why are you grinning like that?

I'm not really grinning.

What is it, then? You're acting weird!

Did something happen'?

Do you want to know?

Uh, will...

Maybe I don't need to.

I'm scared to hear it!

To be honest,

at work today

Tanako-chan asked me out.


She suddenly said she loves

me and wants to go out with me.

But she knows you're married, doesn't she?

Yeah, she does.


Love? She said she loves you?


Kids these days sure are something.

So, then...

What did you say to her?

How is that a question? I said no, of course!

Of course I did! I have you, Masako-san!

- Did you now?

- Yeah! I said no to her!

That's why I'm telling you about it!

If I didn't say no, then... you know.

I wouldn't tell you.

Listen... what am I supposed

to do after hearing that?

There isn't really anything you're "supposed" to do.

Aren't you happy to hear that other

women are interested in your husband?

Not in the slightest.

I think people normally would be.

So what should I have said?

You could have just left it at "Good for you!"

Huh'? That's the right move?

"Good for you!" was the right move?

The right move? There is no right move!

You could just be happy about it!

Wait, so, let's reverse the situation...

if a young 20-something hunk

said he loves me, and I told you about it,


I would! I'd be happy to

hear people are interested in you!

- Would you now?

- I would!

Back on topic, though... nothing

is even going to come of it!

I told her I can't do anything

because I'm married.

Oh? Good, how wonderful of you.

What's with that attitude'?

How wonderful for you. As your wife,

I'm so happy that you're popular.

- Why are you saying it like that? And stop that!

- So happy. So, so happy. So happy.

- So happy. So happy.

- I don't need that many!

- Why are you doing that?

- I'm so happy.

Come on, Masako-san.

Um, this is...

What is this?

Thanks for everything.

You're quitting'?

- Yeah.

- Why'?


think that

I'm more in love with you than I thought.

Excuse me.


Resignation letter.

Hey! Hurry up or you'll be late!

Sure is quiet.

You've got that right.


Want to take off'?

You can if you'd like.

I'll be fine on my own.


You're leaving?


Good work.

Good work.


That it for today?

Yeah, it's pretty quiet.

Yeah, that's true.



A coffee, please.

You're not leaving?

Do I have to?



I guess it's fine.

How's it coming along?

[e together?

Nah, not really.

Does it have a deadline?

Monday next week, for now.

I'll get an extension if it's not ready, after all.

[HEB anything happened [HEW



Yeahhh. .. not really.

What about for you?


I see.

I'm going to head home.

Didn't you order a coffee?

I'm leaving, so you can have it.

I've got a couple of jobs.


Are you saving for something?

No, I just have time.

I work because I've got time.





Because you have time?

No, no... it's not because I have the time.

That's a terrible reason to cheat.

Okay, so why'?

Because you're. Elm love?

I guess so.

Anything up.

Since I have time.



- Sure, later.

- Bye.


Hey, wait! What about your coffee?


Check these out!


Which of these do you

think is better for a blouse?
