Stray Love Hearts Summary: Room #9

Well, I certainly took my sweet time putting this up
Been enjoying summer break baby ~
That and my ol’ man ran off with the scanner
Just now was able to steal it back :3
Because what’s a summary without pictures?
Anyway, on to the summary!

Like the Halloween theme. Too bad it’s summer as of this post ^^:

Not my picture. Obtained from zerochan.net

The chapter starts with Hiyoki proudly sporting St. Nazareth’s summer uniform.  Not only are her clothes different, but there’s something else going on: she’s alone with Kuga (excuse me for one moment: YESSSSSS~~~!!!!!!)

We go into the past to learn that Hiyoki’s parents sent her money after hearing she lost her stuff when coming to St. Nazareth (Took mom and dad 3 volumes to fork some cash over? Damn, that’s frugal)

(Now that I think about it, I wonder if mom and dad know about her rooming with those of the opposite sex? >_> hmmm).

With that money she was able to buy a new uniform. Hiyoki has her eyes on other necessities as well: a toothbrush (no comment), notebooks, clothing, etc. Kuga overhears her and offers to be her shopping guide (since Hiyoki being new and all, probably hasn’t been able to hit the shopping mall)

(I’m still in shock about a school having its own shopping mall)

Thus we have the present situation now: Hiyoki + Kuga >:3

Emmmm Kuga in normal clothes <3

Hiyoki is a little surprised Kuga offered to show her around. She’s also surprised at seeing Kuga in normal everyday clothing (<3).  Kuga tells Hiyoki if there is anything she wants to stop at, just let him know. Hiyoki mentions how crazy it is to have a mall here. She’s been so busy with stuff that she never had the time to check around the campus.  Kuga then asks if Hiyoki is still going to room with Yamashina because…

FLASHBACK ~

Remember at the end of Room #8 where Kitoo is about to take Hiyoki into his love cave? Well, Kousetsu stops them, saying Kitoo has received an international call from his family. Kitoo mentions his cell phone battery died so that’s probably why his family called the dorm. Hiyoki notices Kitoo is making a funny face while saying this.

Anyway, Kousetsu says the next person Hiyoki is supposed to stay with is Asukai. Get lost Kitoo.

Kitoo: D,: (I friggin hate you all!)

Oh Kitoo, you big flirt. Now go away. You get Room #16 & #17 for some quality Hiyoki time. It's Kuga x Hiyoki time now ~

Kitoo leaves to go talk with his folks. Kousetsu talks about how “fast” Kitoo works *wink wink* Hiyoki asks if the order of who she stays with is important to which Kousetsu just smiles and says he just prefers it that way (okay, you sound super suspicious Kousetsu  =_=)

However, Asukai isn’t around so Hiyoki is going to stay in Kousetsu’s closest (that’s going to be an interesting tale to tell the cops. Sir, why do you have an underage girl who has no relations to you living in your closest? Kousetsu: O_O; oh shit). Kousetsu teases Hiyoki a bit before asking if she remembers why she’s going from room to room like she is now.

Oh Kousetsu, you're just accentuating the fact you might be a pedo - hitting on an underage girl. Lol, that reminds me of this youtube video my friend sent me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo3Tpw-zLkM

And in case you all happened to forget, Hiyoki explains her whole situation with her heart…again (she’s told us this 7 times before, not including this event (she skipped her explanation in Room #8) – but don’t think this will be the last ~ ) xD

We shift back to Kuga and Hiyoki in the present. They notice Yamashina hiding around a corner, a rope in his hand. Upon seeing them, he puts a finger to his lips to shush them. Be very very quiet, I’m hunting wabbits (lame joke to Elmer Fude). But Yamashina isn’t after a rabbit, he’s after a guy…Gai! (*shot for using two lame jokes in a row*)

This is how women in the old days used to catch men. Ask your grandma. She'll reminisce about the good ol' days - heck, she probably used a bear trap on grandpa xD

Gai has some reports he needs to hand in and Yamashina is making sure Gai does his school work (because we’ve all seen how passionate Yamashina is about learning – Rooms 5 & 6). Gai looks to Hiyoki and Kuga for help but they look the other way.

Yamashina: “A wise choice, Hiyoki-san.”

Yamashina apologizes for not walking Hiyoki back after the tea party thing at A Dorm’s place (which resulted in a …steamy situation for Hiyoki^^). Hiyoki shakes off his apology by thanking him for taking care of her.

Yamashina gives her a ball point pen, to jot down “memories” with. He also tells Hiyoki that pen has 12 secret functions. What are they? Well, they’re a secret.

Hiyoki: =_=;

Yamashina then notices something: Hiyoki and Kuga….alone…no Ren…

Gai: “YOU’RE ON A DATE!? LUCKY DOG!”

Hiyoki’s heart gets super worked up upon hearing this. She tells the two it’s not like that. Though Kuga has his poker face on, I know he just died a little upon hearing that. *pats Kuga on the shoulder in sympathy*

Yamashina tells Hiyoki to hang with him next time.

OMG Is he asking her out!?

Yeah…for study date =_=; because he saved the best subject for last baby (whatever that is, maybe chemistry. Lol, how’s this for a pickup line: Hey good-looking, how about you and me go back to my place to work on our…chemistry ~ <3 *punch*)

Yamashina says it’s time for him and Gai to get to studying, to which Gai stays F that! I’m off to buy cake.

And Yamashina replies F that, we’re studying (you’re the one in the net bitch hahahaha)

So Yamashina proceeds to drag Gai off into the horizon with Hiyoki and Kuga waving them off. Hiyoki says they should bring back some cake for poor Gai.

Until then, please stay alive” xD oh Hiyoki that was awesome

Kuga says they should concentrate on Hiyoki first. He’ll help her out. He pats her shoulder to get her moving (to which Hiyoki’s face turns bright red at ~ <3)

So what kind of clothes is Kuga going to recommend?

Kuga is into gothic Lolita. That's friggin hilarious (be even funnier if he dressed up like one haha)

^^; Stuff Hiyoki doesn’t want to be seen in.

But when he smiles at her, saying she looks great, she feels pressured to buy them haha. Hiyoki resolves to steel herself against Kuga’s charm.

While shopping, she over hears some girls talking about her and Kuga. They make fun of her wearing her uniform instead of trendy clothes then proceed to Kuga. They say he’s hot (damn straight :3) but he’s with S Dorm. And S Dorm = scary. Then they talk about S Dorm breaking into A Dorm (Room #8).

Hiyoki shakes the negative feelings in her away. Today she’s going to have fun. She can worry tomorrow.

So she and Kuga go off to look at stuff. They pass the cake shop Gai was talking about. And who do you think is inside?

No, not Cain (though good guess)

It’s Ren.

Why does every disguise involves glasses? At least he wasn't wearing glasses to make himself more plain and unattractive...

Turns out he works in the cake shop

And he’s not happy about seeing Kuga and Hiyoki together.

Love how he presses his face against the cake shop window to stare at the two as they walk off. Ren tries to follow but his boss holds him back: you’re in the middle of a job foo!

Ren: Noes! D:

Cain: Miss me my butterflies? ^3^ Cain is here ~

The scene shifts to Cain (because I’m telling you, there will never be a chapter without Cain being in it in some form). He’s going book shopping with everyone’s favorite peeper, Uryuu. Cain says he’s going to read outside while Uryuu goes to look for his book. While reading, he glances up to see Hiyoki walking by along with Kuga. He watches them leave with a “…huh…” (like, wow never thought I’d see that pairing get some attention (screw you Cain))

Back to Hiyoki and Kuga. As they are shopping around, Hiyoki is mystified by Kuga. She thought when they first met he was a scary mofo but here he is shopping for girl stuff with her. Could he be with her for another reason?

Why Hiyoki, do you mean as in a Hiyoki x Kuga reason? 8D

Hiyoki shakes the thought out of her head before her heart has the chance to go crazy. She distracts herself by going to try on some clothes.

She leaves her shopping bag on the counter.

Some punks come in and start harassing Kuga (because what’s a shojo without punks). He tells them to get bent which pisses the punks off. However, one of the members tells the leader not to fight because they’re in a store. He also whispers something into the leader’s ear that makes the leader change his mind about getting into a fistfight. They leave.

Hiyoki comes out because of the noise but Kuga tells her it was nothing. Hiyoki goes to grab her shopping bag when she notices it’s not where she left it. She asks one of the employees if she’s seen her stuff. The employee says that a group of boys came in but for them to walk off with the bag is strange (especially since its pink and girly).

Kuga has a “OH HELL NO” expression and turns around to find the punks. However, Hiyoki stops him.

Awwww <3

She says it’s ok, she can just re-buy everything. She continues saying she shouldn’t have left her stuff unattended.  In her head she thinks, plus I don’t want to cause trouble – because S Dorm is in danger of being demolished. Hiyoki looks up at Kuga and repeats once more with a smile, it’s ok. She then apologizes for losing the stuff he helped her pick out.

The scene changes over to those punks. They’re all happy that they got to pull one on Kuga (bastards). They fling Hiyoki’s bag amongst one another. One of the punks asks what are they going to do with the bag?

Why, wear it and be traps ~ 8D jk

The leader says to just trash it. Then they proceed to call S Dorm trash as well. As they walk by joking about S Dorm, who should they happen to pass by? Why it’s Cain! Cain hears them and he notices the pink bag they’re flinging around. He remembers Hiyoki was holding on to that bag with a smile on her face. Again he does that “….huh…” thing.

Bake damn you! I've got some stalking to do! Curse you calorific custard!

The scene jumps to Ren. He’s working hardcore to make a bunch of pastries. His logic: if he makes enough for the whole day he can get out early (and find out what’s going on with Hiyoki and Kuga). His boss is all, hey man be careful with that stuff but Ren is all, it’s cool. I’m a professional, because I’ve had so many jobs (*looks at Room #14* I seriously wonder how Ren manages to get all these jobs at his age…).

Ren says he’s going to take the trash out to vent off his man frustrations. And guess who just happens to be walking by? It’s those punks! (I guess these punks must have those new Poke-walkers and are trying to level up their Diglets or something.) Ren hears them dissing S Dorm, saying the people in S Dorm make them look like angels. Ren looks at them and instantly comes to the conclusion that they are pussies (as in weak, not that other definition that I just recently learned about).  There’s no reason to go over and teach them a lesson. That is until he sees the pink bag they are chucking around. The one Hiyoki was holding on to.

Ren: “Boss, something has made me sick to my stomach so please let me leave early.”

Boss: “You got a stomach ache?
Wait? Sick…to your stomach?

Ren: “Don’t worry, it’s not you.

Ren pulls up his sleeves. He’s about to take out some more trash.

[It’s them.]

Uh, Ren? Wrong way ^^:

Room #9 end ~

Oh snap. Ren about to put the hurt on those fools.

Will he be able to get back Hiyoki’s stuff? Will Kuga make a move on Hiyoki in the mean time? How will Cain make his daily appearance in the next chapter? And what will Hiyoki’s next room stay be like?

Find out in Room #10 ~

  1. “Took mom and dad 3 volumes to fork some cash over? Damn, that’s frugal”
    There are parents like that. My mom yelled at me for getting sick at camp and that I had to get sent home early and she couldn’t get a refund.

    “However, Asukai isn’t around so Hiyoki is going to stay in Kousetsu’s closest (that’s going to be an interesting tale to tell the cops. Sir, why do you have an underage girl who has no relations to you living in your closest? Kousetsu: O_O; oh shit).”

    “Oh Kousetsu, you’re just accentuating the fact you might be a pedo – hitting on an underage girl.”

    This reminds me of what my friend said when she was over. I showed her SLH and she said Kousetsu was a pedophile. Mostly because he looked like the Seito Kaichou from Ogawa to Yukai na Saitou tachi (that chapter isn’t out yet).

    “which resulted in a …steamy situation for Hiyoki^^”
    Does the Sebbie “Oho~!” (inside joke)

    “she’s told us this 7 times before, not including this event (she skipped her explanation in Room #8) – but don’t think this will be the last ~ “
    Hiyoki likes to describe her heart problem.

    “The scene shifts to Cain (because I’m telling you, there will never be a chapter without Cain being in it in some form). He’s going book shopping with everyone’s favorite peeper, Uryuu.”
    So his gay stalker is with him too. Oho~

    “I’m a professional, because I’ve had so many jobs (*looks at Room #14* I seriously wonder how Ren manages to get all these jobs at his age…).”
    Maybe he lied about his age. It’s possible.

    Thanks for the summary. I’ve seen the Russian raws, but I’ve been dying to see the summary. I’m pretty sure you liked this chapter as well.

    • O_O; wow…that’s…cold

      I remember your earlier comment about what your friend said about Kousetsu. Thanks to you two, from that moment on, Kousetsu had the added job class of “pedo” in my eyes.
      Didn’t help that in this chapter Hiyoki ended up sleeping in his closest – that only sealed the deal about his hidden pedo ways xD
      Kousetsu: D: (I friggin hate you!!!) *screamed from the back of a police car*

      “Hiyoki likes to describe her heart problem.”
      Hiyoki worries we are too busy drooling over the bishies or accusing Kousetsu of being a pedo to remember everything that happens. She only does that to show her love (and maybe because she likes showing that one scene of the heart thief touching her chest *bricked* ^^;)

      True, that is a possibility. But I figured they’d at least double check Ren’s age for that casino bit at least.
      Oh well, I’m sure with the right connections, any job is open.

      “I’m pretty sure you liked this chapter as well.”
      ;3 oh yeah
      After slaving my way through the Cain chapters (jk) I finally got me some Kuga time ^o^
      Chapter 10 will end the Kuga love but hey…at least I had it for a while haha
      (unlike the poor Gai fans…I’m sorry you guys never get a Gai x Hiyoki chapter dedication from here on out…)
      (However, if you’re an Asukai fan or Kitoo fan, rejoice!)
      *Gai fans: >:| grrr*

    • Thanks LitteStar

      Sorry, I’ve been away from my computer so I didn’t get to send that announcement out on MAL that Room #9 was ready and available
      (I just clicked POST on my blog and went to bed – then RL stuff happened that kept me away for a while)
      Thanks for covering my butt (again haha)

      I’m glad the club is doing well
      (900 members! Heck yeah!)

  2. “(Took mom and dad 3 volumes to fork some cash over? Damn, that’s frugal)

    (Now that I think about it, I wonder if mom and dad know about her rooming with those of the opposite sex? >_> hmmm).”

    Animanga parenting: it sucks.

    Shopping mall? WOw. I mean the schools in Harry Potter and Alice Gakuan, have little shopping villiages near them, but an actuall mall? Wow.

    “Kuga is into gothic Lolita. That’s friggin hilarious (be even funnier if he dressed up like one haha)”

    Based on what you’ve read how likely is that we’re going to get male crossdressing? Because there always needs to be more of it in reverse haram series (is going to reread the scenes in FY8 just for that).

    “Why does every disguise involves glasses?”

    FOR FANSERVICE…. OF COURSE!

    I love that Ren works in a cake shop randomly. All the guys in this series are kind of a hair thread away from being otomen (though that really just makes them more interesting).

    “looks at Room #14* I seriously wonder how Ren manages to get all these jobs at his age…)”
    He must be the reincarenation of Touya from CCS. ^___^

    I like how all the guys seemed to get MANSERVICE time in this chapter (although Ren, Kuga and Kain still seem to get the most screen time), and Kuga got to have an adorable shopping advanture for Hiyoki. Looking forward to hearing about the beatdown next chapter on the Punks.

    • “Animanga parenting: it sucks.”

      Agreement on that statement

      Male cross dressing makes me lol :3
      I don’t know why I keep joking about Kuga cross-dressing. I think it’s because he sews and he girl shops for clothes. My mind instantly formulated the idea that he must therefore make/buy said girl clothes and wear them. My mind is strange like that xD

      “All the guys in this series are kind of a hair thread away from being otomen”

      Ho ho! If you haven’t read Room #12 yet, you’ll see some hardcore Otomen when you do (aw, I just remembered – #12 was the first summary I ever did of SLH. Memories ~)

      MANSERVICE is needed :3 ~
      4 outta 5 doctors recommend getting the appropriate amount of MANSERVICE for a happy life (and nothing provides MANSERVICE than SLH. Well, maybe Hakuouki too <3)

      Hopefully Room #10 will not disappoint :3

  3. lol fox ur really dint know that pussy ment? with me as ur BFF? i am sadded by this. we must repeat ur taining young one! cain need to kick some ass! and not look like he is drooling over porn.

    • I didn’t know pussy meant THAT!
      I remember back in the day when cartoons were screaming PUSSY and it was the clean wholesome family fun definition (that you were a pansy)
      That’s how I learned it
      Now look at it
      (stupid kids and destroying all the words in the dictionary – one word at a time. I remember when you used to be able to scream WEINER without getting …PSSFFT. Haha weiner xD)

      Anyway, stupid cartoons.
      Leading me astray

      OMFG that would have been awesome if Cain had been reading Playboy xD
      HAHAHAHA
      *rolls on the floor in a laughter fit*
      No wonder Uryuu was all, you can go outside. I’m just going to sob in this corner here because my man-love for you will go unrequited haha

  4. ♥Kuga♥ that should say it all!!!! I would totally switch with Hiyoki in a split second!!!

    I am sure in the next chapter Cain and Mr. Peeper will show up Kuga!

    • :3 Yeah ~ my Kuga fan sister, you understand the happiness this chapter brought me ~
      You and me both on the Hiyoki switch <3

      Hoho we'll see Cain but Mr. Peeper likes to hide so he may be hidden somewhere. But don't worry. He's there. Wherever Cain is, Uryuu can't be too far jk
      Maybe hiding up in a tree or something xD

  5. Is Uryuu a girl? Is ,,she” dressed as a guy?

    please reply and tell me what do you think.

    if you have read Shugo Chara, there was same (Nagihiko studied Japanese dance and because of that he must dress as a girl, also Uryuu is dancing Japanese dance… I wonder if at SLH is the same…

    • Uryuu? A trap? That would be friggin awesome 8D
      That is a possibility
      I mean, we’ve yet to see a shirtless Uryuu after all
      DUM DUM DUMMMMM
      And traps are very popular now and days :3
      We will have to keep that theory of yours in mind now ho ho

      I was just thinking of Shugo Chara
      Totally did not see Nadeshiko being a dude
      Blew my mind away
      (I’m reading the Japanese version right now – the beginning chapters – and dang he was convincing as a girl. Never crossed my mind AT ALL that she was a he!)

  6. in room #10 Cain was hearing voices WHEN THE MOON IS ON THE SKYso when moon is on the sky! also he said:”I will make her mine”, I have bad feeling about it, or my theory is right, about Hiyoki’s and Cain’s connection?
    does Cain wsant Hiyoki because Ren likes her?
    or wants he to obtain Hiyoki, fullfill his wish and then throw her away?

    • I really think Cain and Hiyoki are connected somehow too
      What I really wanna know is what’s up with Cain
      Does he see into the future or does he read minds?
      The way #10 ends it makes you go, huh? Why is he yelling “shut up!” for?

      I hope Cain isn’t that much of a bastard D8
      To only want Hiyoki just because Ren likes her
      Or to want her only to use her then chuck her like dirtied toilet paper
      Cain is an ass but he’s not a dick…or so I’ve seen so far >_>;
      But you never know…

  7. I just love your summaries! Okay, I love your comments about them the most.

    I’m also a fellow supporter of the Kuga x Hiyoki pairing. I cheer them on, amongst laughing myself silly with your accurate observations dressed up in your wit and humour.

  8. Thank you very much ^_^
    I just spit out whatever comes in my head haha

    I’m glad to meet another Kuga x Hiyoki fan
    (I’ve met so many recently! We may actually be a threat to the Cain x Hiyoki fans here soon haha!)

    Thank you for your comment ^^
