ok, I'm done now. :) Thanks for your patience.

Ok, after a week or so of editing images and *whew* translating the game script, I'm proud to present you the second storyline of Konami's Tokimeki Memorial Drama Series Vol. 3: Tabidachi No Uta. This time, it's the story of the other heroine in the game, Miharu Tatebayashi.

so as to enjoy the story to its fullest, I suggest you read the shiori part first until you get to the Skiing part, then continue on here.

For emulator configurations, refer to the Shiori thread. :)

Ok, here we go!

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story01.jpg">
<p>It was last wednesday when she phoned me. She got the wrong number actually, but somehow we start talking about ourselves. She will be graduating this year, that means she is of my age. Both of us have a similarity in that we have something we want to do before graduation. Mine is marathon, while she hasn't told me hers. She is quite fun actually, she listens to all my mumblings so far. And somehow I accepted her invitation to meet this Sunday...and somehow, I chose to meet her rather than skiing with Shiori, Yoshio, and Yumi. Sigh...I think it will be better to spend time with Shiori...well, nevermind, at least I can use this Sunday for training.

<p>Koala hair... a strange way to recognize people, but that's what she said.. Now where can I find a Koala...erm, I mean a girl with Koala hair..

"Tanakasan.." I turned to my back where the voice came...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story02.jpg">

<p>A cute girl is standing in front of me.. and her hair, it really looks like a Koala's...

"Wow, how did you find me? There are a lot of people wearing black jackets"

"etto.. I.. I just imagine the image of your voice.. fufufu"

"I see.. my name is Takahashi Ryu, Kirameki Koukou Third year"

"I'm Tatebayashi Miharu, also in Kirameki Koukou. Everybody called me Koala hair"

"Really.. wow I didn't notice you for sure in Kirameki.. it is really a nice coincidence"

"yeah.. ehehehe.. by the way, you wanted to get some training for the marathon, right? I know a good place.. shall we go?"

"But I thought you want to talk about your problem..."

"Daijoubu.. sa.. Ikou.."
<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story03.jpg">

<p>We arrived at a training center.. but wait a minute...that is... this is....

"Ijuin's???"

"Sou.. I happen to know this place and I think it is a good place for your training.
It has a good facility.. sa, let's go in"

"But.. Ijuin's...."

After a warm welcome speech from Ijuin (I would really love to skip that part though) we look around the gym. At least Ijuin does give advice on what training would be good for me.. Now we are standing in front of what is called a football training centre...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story04.jpg">

<p> "Have you played soccer before?"

"Nope.. not at all, but I think it will be good if Ijuin said so..."

"Sa.. why don't you try?"

After a few tries, I managed to pass beginner level, well the program itself is fun.. it is more like a game than a trainer.. Next we go to running gym

"hm.. Ok, I'll try this one"

"ganbarimasho!"

What the.. the setting is too fast!! Wuuuaaaaaa.. I'm running like mad now.. this machine is very fast.. I'm not going to sprint for that long!!!

"hosh hosh... that was killing"

"fufufu.. but a good training"

"Yeah, but I'm totally exhausted.. hosh hosh.."

<p>After a bit argument with Miharu, finally here we are.. in front of the swimming pool. But there is a strange guy guarding it...
<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story06.jpg">

<p>"This is Ijuin's Private Deluxe Swimming Pool. No one is allowed to enter"

"But I want to do some exercise"

"I see.. you have a nice body. Please come in"

Hah?! Nice body?! This guy is a freak! As I have predicted he followed me everywhere. I don't care...Ok, I'll start my training...

"Miharu, you don't swim?"

"No.. It is a bit embarassing wearing swimming suit"

"Wait a minute! You must do some exercise before going into the pool! It is for your own good"

Geezzz.. I did some exercise to make him happy and then start my training. And everytime I rest he will offer me towel.. scary.. eh, where is Miharu?

"She has gone to changing room"

Then minutes later I saw her in her swimsuit...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story07.gif">

<p>"Please don't look at me that way.. It's really embarassing.
I changed my mind because I see you training so hard, so I think I shouldn't have bothered with this kind of tiny thing..."

Then when I go back training Miharu was standing at the edge of the pool.

"I bring this towel specially for you, that guy always tries to give you a towel so I didn't have the chance. I have specially brought this towel for you this time."


"You there! What are you doing in my private pool?!"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story08.jpg">

<p>It was Ijuin...uh-oh..and it looks like _he_ is very angry

"Ijuinkun, he just want to practice for the marathon"

"Sotoi! Who told you to let them in?"

"Ijuinsama.. I'm sorry"

"But, I just want to train for a while, what's wrong with that? Nobody uses this pool anyway. Is there anything you want to hide?"

"It is none of your business" I can see _his_ face turn bright red.

"Now get out of here and I don't want to see you in the pool again! Sotoi, escort them out!"

"Hai, Ijuinsama. I'm sorry, but you had better go out"

"Ok.. ja, miharu"

What's wrong with him? We just merely use the pool, it is not that we did anything bad..
I just can't understand him..

"By the way Miharu, let's call it a day. Anyway, we still haven't talked about your problem. It is the reason why we meet today, right?"

"Ah.. It is alright, don't worry"

"But you have helped a lot with my training, now it is my time to help you"

"a.. hai.. there is a cafe over there, shall we go?"

"Sure"
<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story09.jpg">

<p>"So what is your problem? Is it about love?"

"Un.. yeah...actually I.. I..."

"Here is your order, please enjoy it" The waitress came and put our orders on the table

"So, where were we? Yeah.. about your problem"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story10.jpg">

<p>There is a silence.. it looks like she was going to say something before the waitress came but now she looks hesitant...

"I.. I.. liked someone. But I don't have the courage to tell him..."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story11.gif">

<p>Her face turned red.. so that was the problem...she doesn't have the courage to tell the one she loves... Well, I too don't have the courage to tell Shiori...I wonder why there are people like us, we can't tell the ones we love that we love them...

"I'm sure you will be able to do it, Tatebayashi-san. I'll give you my support. You have given me your support on the marathon, now I'll give you my support to summon your courage. I'm sure you will able to do it"

My mind is filled with her problem when I go back home...both of us have things that we want to accomplish before graduation...
How silly we are.. just a little problem.. what is so difficult of saying those words.. yet we can't.. Koi no Nayami ka (Love anguish)...

Whew.. I'm tired.. this training with Nozomi. Now I'll have to rush back to Shiori.. It's not good to always let her wait for me.. it has...BUMP!

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story12.jpg">

<p>"A.. gomennasai.."

"a.. iya daijobuyo.. a Tatebayashisan"

"Takahashi-kun.. fufufu.. what a coincidence.."

"hahaha.. yeah.. sorry, I got to rush back working on the album"

"You are in the comittee? With.. Fujisaki-san?"

"a.. do you know her?"

"iya.. I don't really know her.. so.. you spend the time together with her alone... two of you.."

"e? nani?"

"A.. iya.. ano.. etto.. nothing. Ano, is it alright if we.. go home.. together today? ano.. if it is alright with you.. ano.."

"Ok.. that's fine with me.. but you'll have to wait 'till I finish.. is that alright?"

"SURE! I'll wait for you at the front gate.. ja ne.. see you"

And.. why the heck did I say Ok to Tatebayashisan.. I should have spent my time with Shiori.. I don't know why, but something about her makes me want to know her more. And I have to let Shiori walks home alone today for that...Sigh...hmm...where is Miharu? Oh no, don't tell me she has gone home...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story13.jpg">

<p>"Takahashi-kun.. shall we go home?"

So then we walk home together. We talked a lot.. about school, upcoming graduation, my training, her class. I just found out that she is in the same class as Mikihara Megumi, Shiori's best friend. About her hair having 'Koala-shaped'... She is very fun to be with...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story14.gif">

<p>"A.. a seal print machine. Ne, Takahashi-kun, shall we take a picture?"

"Sure, why not" I smiled "etto.. 100 yen ka.. hai" I inserted the coin...

"Can I choose the frame? etto.. how about this one?"

Eh...? I was kinda surprised.. that frame.. is a love frame that I wanted to take with Shiori (though she rejected...sigh).. well anything..

"Sure."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story15.jpg">

<p>"Hai.. half of it is yours.. fufufu, thanks Takahashi-kun"

Today I have a bit time before the album work starts...so I decided to pay Miharu a visit.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story16.jpg">

<p>Ah...Takahashi-kun, this is the first time you come to my class...ureshii :love:"

"A.. Tatebayashisan.. etto, is it alright if I call you Miharu?"

"eh.." her face turned red.. did I say something wrong... "ano.. just kidding..."

"un.. it is alright.. you can call me Miharu if you want to.." eh.. really?? I just wanted to tease her and...

"a.. Takahashi-kun.. is it alright if we go home together again.. today?" She sounds a bit hesitant...

"sure. meet you at the front gate?"

Today we pass through a small bookstore. She said that she always went here during her childhood time.. After looking at the store, I realised that this is the bookstore where I always read comics during my childhood also..

"Really?" she said "I didn't know that you often went here also.. strange isn't it? We visited the same bookstore yet we don't know each other.."

I can feel that a sad tone in her voice.. but I don't know why...

"Life is strange, isn't it?"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story17.jpg">

<p>"by the way Takahashi-kun.. Do you still remember what we usually call the shopkeeper? eh.. you don't? We called her 'Irashai Auntie'.. Let's go in and you'll know...

"Shitsureishimasu"

"Irashai" the shopkeeper replied.. hahahaa.. now I remember.. she can't pronounce Iraisha correctly.. Miharu and I laughed together...

The next day:

"Ne, shall we sit there for a while?" Miharu told me.

"Sure.."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story18.gif">

<p>"Here, I got a present for you. An amulet for you"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story19.gif">

<p>"A 'Good Relationship' amulet?"

"a.. hora, this is for your marathon. So you can get a clear way to the finish. It is similar to having good relationship, ne? Look, I pasted the seal print we took last time at the back of the amulet as well" she smiled.

And thanks to that Nozomi laughed at me during the training the next morning.. I feel that I'm a bit fool myself.. but my heart is thankful for Miharu's attention...

During the afternoon when we go home together, we sit at the same place again...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story20.jpg">

<p>"Ne, can we still be friend after we graduate?"

"Sure, we can always contact each other"

"Liar! Do you still go out with your Junior High friends? Do you still phone them? Do you know how they are now?"

"....."
<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story21.gif">

<p>"See.. it will happen to us as well. You will eventually forget about me. Gomenne, I'm saying weird things"

Somehow I feel that she is afraid of losing something.. Is it because she still can't confess to the one she loves? Am I too, afraid of losing something important in my life.. before the graduation.. I MUST help her. I must help her, give her the courage to confess to her love...

She has been very quiet today...is it because of yesterday...?

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story22.gif">

<p>"Ne, Miharu. Have you got the courage now to confess to him?"

"Iya.. mada.. I don't think I can do it. I think I should just give up"

"You can't be serious! Hm.. Ok.. I think we should do it.."

"eh? nani?"

"Confession training. Now, pretend that I'm the one you are going to confess to. Then you can try to confess to me. Since I'm not the one that you like, it will be easier for you, right? Then when you have practised enough, you will have the courage to confess to him, ne shall we do it?"

"but.. but...."

"C'mon.. let's do it" I stand in front of her "Ne?"

"Un.."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story24.jpg">

<p>"Hora Miharu.. ganbatte.. Ne, just imagine that I'm the one that you like. Hai, now try to say 'I like you'.
It will be easier since I'm not him, right? Hahaha.. it is kinda fool to do this.. but that's alright, to help you summon the courage. Ja, let's start"

"Watashi.." she looks down.. I guess it is really difficult for her to get the courage.. even it is not the real confession. I can see her hand grip the hem of her skirt tightly...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story25.gif">

<p>Miharu...

"Watashi.. anata no koto.. zutto mae kara daisukidesu"
(I.. have liked you for a long time)

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story26.jpg">

<p>"Hora Miharu...! You have said it.. that's great! Now we only have to repeat this practice enough time, and you'll surely be able to tell him. If you can do it in front of me, surely you will be able to tell him, ne?"

She lifted her face.. I see tears rolling down her cheeks.. doushite...but somehow there is an expression of deep satisfaction on her face.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story27.gif">

<p>She smiled.

"Watashi.. anata no koto zutto mae kara daisukidesu"
(I.. have liked you for a long time)

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story28.jpg">

<p>Huh.. what the.. I was stunned.. watching her ran away.. before I can even realize what has happened.. what is this Miharu? what does this all mean? why...

"It is too much for a coincidence, Ryu" Yoshio's word echoes in my mind "How do you think she found out your phone number? What is the chance that she got your phone number by accident?
Furthermore, she is also in Kirameki Koukou. I'd be very happy if a cute girl ever phoned me by accident. I'm very sure that she has known you before."

"You are obsessed by her, Ryu... Miharu, Miharu, Miharu. Everyday you are only talking about her. I know that you want to help her.. but aren't you in love with her, Ryu?"

"You are the one that she likes, Ryu. When will you realize it?"

Miharu.. really.. am I the one that.. you like.. Yoshio just might be right...but why...

"Look at this picture, Ryu" Shiori said "You are in it. It was during sports day...do you remember? "

"Yeah.. the basketball club boys ran very fast back then.. all girls were giving support to them"

"Eh.. that's right.. but there is one girl looking at other direction.."

It was Miharu...and she was giving support to...ME? When I reached home, I found a letter from Miharu...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story30.gif">


<p>
_________________
"It is not for Tanakasan, but for you. I'm sorry that I wrote a letter all of sudden, but I have something that I must tell you. I have no courage to call you through the phone, so I wrote this letter. My heart is broken. The person didn't have the same feeling towards me."

"The first time I talked to him, I tried my best to get his attention. I consulted him about my problem... Though I cheated him by doing so, but what I said that time was the truth, my real feelings towards that person. He took my problem seriously and told me to take action. I was really happy that he encouraged me....So I summoned my courage."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story31.gif">

<p>"I tried my best, but I couldn't.. I can't bear to be separated from him anymore, it is really painful. I wished he would understand my feelings. But I can't keep it any longer, so I lied once more, as if the person that I like was someone else. It is truly very painful to lie, especially when it's about love; but thanks to that we have become friends"

"It is just like a dream when we talked for the first time at school. That person has always been so far away from me these past 3 years, but slowly I got to know more about him. I couldn't tell him the truth, but I really treasure that relationship...since I'm really happy just talking to him. You had always encouraged me, I really like that kind feeling whenever I'm you. And then.. the most painful part...that kind word, one by one, seems to make us further apart. I was really happy.. but it was very painful, I closed my ears.. what have I written.. Is it for Tanaka-san? Or is it for that person? I don't understand myself. I feel like fooling myself. I can't phone you anymore, I can't talk to you at school anymore, though it is almost graduation time. I guess it is just right for me to do this. Thanks for always listening to my problem. This is really the end. Please do your best for the marathon. I'll support you from my heart. Good bye. From the troubled girl"
_________________



After reading the letter, I picked the phone...


"Ano.. hello.. it is me. I have read your letter. After that, I felt that I'm a fool myself. Ano.. I might have misunderstood about the matter.. But it's not because that person doesn't have any feeling toward you. It's just he is a fool, thickheaded, a person that can't do anything. So I hope you won't give up. I want you to come to the marathon tomorrow. I will surely run to the last. For you to summon your courage once more time, I will run to the last."

"When you have summoned your courage one more time, once more, this time it is not just training, but the real confession. I believe that person loves you just the same. I'm sorry for saying weird things. But I don't want you to give up your love confession. Please summon your courage this time, for the one that you have not been able to say for the past 3 years. I'll wait for you tomorrow. Good bye."


******

I searched for Miharu.. but it looks like she doesn't come.. It is now the time to take the position at the starting line...

"Ganbattene"

"Thanks, Shiori.. ne, we will always be good friends, just like the childhood time, right?"

"fufufu.. un"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story32.jpg">

<p>While taking my place, I searched once more among the audience..

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story33.jpg">

<p>I really want to see her.. we have been go through the last week of our highschool life together.. I really want to see her now. But it seems that she won't come...


"GANBATTE!!!"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/story34.gif">

<p>Eh...just now...! My eyes sweep through the audience once more.. that's her. I see her among the audience.. yelling at me....
<p align=center>

"GANBATTE!! GANBATTE!!"

"DAISUKIDAYO!!!!"

You can only imagine the migraines it gave me just figuring out what the heck they were saying, since I'm having great difficulty with katakana, and have to consult with my aunt for translation.
