Sorry To Make You Wait
As Raku and the gang go through the secret pathway to save Marika, Raku hears the staff hurry to get ready for Marika's ceremony that has been moved an hour early causing Raku and the gang to panic. Raku decides to go directly to the ceremony to stop it from happening.
Raku arriving to the ceremony causes a ruckus among the guests. Marika tries reaching out to Raku but is stopped by her mother through an earpiece communicator in Marika's ear. Through the earpiece, Marika's mother threatens Marika to persuade Raku to leave the ceremony.
Despite Marika's unwillingness to do so, Marika asks Raku why he attended her ceremony and states she is has chosen to marry the man and no longer loves him. She then tells him to leave and no longer meddle with her. Rake says he understands but says that if what she states was true, she should say it with a happier face. Rake tells her that he knows that he can't feel the same way about her but deeply cares about her as a friend to save her.
In awe and joy, Marika takes the earpiece from her ear, smashes it, and arranges her hair to its normal arrangement with her marigold flower pin. Marika then starts tearing up and asks Raku to take her away from the ceremony.
Rake answers back "Of course...!" with Tsugumi and Chitoge by his side, ready to fight back the security guards. To Raku, Tsugumi, and Chitoge's surprise, half the crowd of security guards all collapse due to the sickening but nicely presented food Kosaki gave them earlier. As the rest of the security guards get ready to fight, Raku and the gang call out to Marika, promising to take her back.
Chapter Notes Edit
- The collapse of the security guards from Kosaki's cooking is not the first time it has happened. In middle school, Kosaki gives Ruri her Valentine Chocolates to her but ends up collapsing from eating it.
