Nidome no Koi wa Usotsuki (JAPANESE)

This time I'm sharing a Japanese RAW, not a scanlation. I got these raws as a freebie in a manga I bought recently. I found it very interesting because the entire 40-page chapter was printed on a pamphlet folded down to the size of a playing card! Each image (page) was originally about the size of a US quarter! That is why some of the pages look pixelated or fuzzy; it's a side effect of the enlargement process. 
As for the story, it's not extremely original. The main girl is a 28-year-old office worker, who has been in love with the same guy for 10 years, he was originally her high-school classmate and is now her coworker. At the company cafeteria, there are 'Ikemen Garcon' (pretty-boy waiters, who look like they should be working at  Butler Cafe) working there. One of these charming waiters, his true personality is actually quite cheeky. He somehow guesses her situation of being in love with the same man for 10 years and calls her a "washed out woman". He turns out to be the younger brother of the man she's in love with! Shortly after, she receives an invitation to the wedding of the man she loves with another woman. Since that man told her many years ago that he likes strong women, she hides her sadness from him. But the one who sees her smoking on the rooftop and comforts her when she's crying is the younger brother! And later on he announces to everyone in the company that the two of them are dating!? The girl seems to go along with this to keep the guy she originally loves from finding out the truth. 
Anyways, I didn't read this very thoroughly or look up any words I don't know, so the summary is just based on what I understood from skimming. This seems to be a promotional first chapter or prologue for the rest of the manga. If you're interested, I hope you'll check it out!
