お待たせしました～ Here is the summary for Chapter 74 of Love So Life!
When Matsunaga-san arrives at the arranged meeting place with his hobo disguise on, he’s surprised to find that Takeru’s girlfriend who he’s heard so much about is actually Rio, who he knew only as Shiharu’s friend. Takeru remarks on Matsunaga-san’s heavy-duty disguise and Matsunaga-san replies (in a roundabout way) that he has to be especially careful right now, which immediately brings to mind the supposed affair with the gravure idol. Rio asks Shiharu in a whisper if she brought the chocolate with her and Shiharu says she did. Matsunaga-san asks Takeru about Mana, and Takeru says she’s sick with a cold and couldn’t come. Just then we get a peak of the twins in their squirrel(?) outfits, which are explained to be “protective wear” against the cold, so they don’t get sick like Mana. The twins are crazy happy to see Shiharu and crazy happy to be at the amusement park. They all ride on some rides for a couple pages (or a page) and then Takeru mentions the haunted house. Aoi-kun definitely doesn’t want to go, but Akane-chan definitely does. Shiharu doesn’t really want to go either, so she volunteers to wait outside with Aoi-kun. Matsunaga-san doesn’t really want to go either, but since he can’t talk Akane out of it, he goes in with her, Rio and Takeru. Almost immediately after, Akane (and possibly some of the adults too) starts screaming bloody murder and Rio and Takeru stumble out of the haunted house, petrified, and Matsunaga-san follows carrying a hysterical Akane-chan. For some reason I found it adorable when Aoi-kun asks Akane-chan if she saw a scary ghost and she was like “…YEAH…” They stop after this to have something to drink, and Matsunaga-san scolds Takeru for his bad/childish behavior encouraging Akane to go into the haunted house, when Takeru responds “You’re one to talk! You’re having a torrid affair with that gravure model right now, aren’t you?!” Matsunaga-san denies it once again, saying that he wrote a really nice/proper disclosure denying the whole thing but they wouldn’t air it. He also explains that the pictures the media is using as “proof” of their supposed relationship were taken when they were working together on that collaboration (in volume 9, I think) and who ever took them made sure to take them from specific angles to intentionally capture only the two of them in the frame. Suddenly Matsunaga-san comes to the realization that none of them had believed his public denial until hearing it from him just now. He asks Shiharu specifically if not even she had believed him and she gets really flustered and admits she hadn’t seen the news report of his denial comment first hand so she hadn’t been sure what to believe, but then blurts out that she certainly believes it now after hearing it from him directly. He smiles and just says “That’s good, then.” He doesn’t say anything further but pictures the actual situation: Miuru-chan sexually harassing him, trying to drag him into a taxi to ‘escort her home’ and the other staff not protesting just because “it’s Miuru-chan, after all.” Shortly after, Shiharu is happily munching on a Churro while rejoicing that Matsunaga-san and Miuru-chan really aren’t dating, when she catches Matsunaga-san staring at her and when he asks what’s wrong he says that because she’s eating so happily he thought the Churro must be really good, and so she offers him some without thinking. However she suddenly realizes she can’t think of an easy way to share the churro, and as she’s about to ask him what they should do, he suddenly leans over and takes a bite while she’s still holding it. Indirect kiss!!! Both Shiharu and Rio, who’d turned around at just that minute to see why Shiharu and Matsunaga-san had gotten so far behind, start blushing like crazy. Shortly after, they arrive at their destination: the ferris wheel! While Shiharu’s explaining to Aoi-kun that the scenery is really beautiful from the top, Rio leans over and whispers conspiratorially to Takeru “Are we really gonna do it?” and he flashes her a thumbs up and a daredevil grin. Just as Matsunaga-san, Shiharu and the twins are about to board the ferris wheel, Takeru suddenly shouts “What, the next car is FULL OF TOYS, you say?!!” Then he and Rio grab the twins, telling them they’ll get on the next car, and hurry Matsunaga-san and Shiharu alone into the waiting car. Before they can protest, the door is closed and the ferris wheel is moving! Next Chapter May 20th!
