Eternal Melody Chapter 776

Chapter 775 Like A Dream Part 3

After the two hugged, Huan made her sit on the right and Mamoru on the left.

“Mom, Mom, why is Dad here?” Huan wondered

“Your dad came to wish me a happy birthday.”

“Is Dad going to come back? But what about Yuhi-san?” Huan asked.

It was just an innocent question, and yet her gaze darkened, that’s right, this situation is very strange. Huan’s question is harmless, but he must be confused too. He probably believes that Ru stayed away because she was together with Yuhi. Now that Ru is suddenly here, he must wonder what will happen.

“Mom, you can’t be angry at Yuhi-san. He truly didn’t want to leave you. He cried a lot!”

Ah, is this boy truly her son? He is so kind and considerate.

Huan turned to Mamoru. “I’m sorry, Dad! But Mom is happy with Yuhi-san, you can’t snatch her away. You can take me if you want, but not Mom.”

“Relax, I won’t be taking anybody away. I know how much Yuhi loves your mom and how much she loves him back. I only came to visit.”

Sumire frowned at Mamoru’s reply, her aside. Did it never occur for Ru to take Huan with him? She supposed it would be difficult with his situation, but she saw just now how happy he was seeing Huan. Is it okay for them to be apart from one another?

‘I would hate not being able to have Huan, but it’s the least I can do for Ru.’

“Then Dad, will you visit a lot? Mom is very lonely here. Sometimes she looks at your pictures and cries.”

Uh, hold on a minute- why is her son exposing all her secrets?

“Yeah, I will try, and I want to spend some time with you as well.”

Huan’s eyes brightened, but then he suddenly looked back at her. “Dad, I will talk to you another day. You came here for Mom, so spend time with her.” Huan ran up to her and waved his little arms, and she chuckled.

Sumire picks him up, hugs him, and kisses his cheeks. “Thank you so much. Then, can you stay here and watch your siblings for me?”


Oh, he is so cute. Sometimes she finds it hard to believe that he is her son. But there is no doubt that he is hers. After all, look how much Huan resembles Ru, and Ru has never been with any other woman.

Sumire tugged on Ru’s hand. “Do you want to eat? I know eating when it’s near midnight isn’t healthy, but I’m sure you haven’t had dinner yet.”

Mamoru’s eyes sparkled, and she heard his stomach growl and laugh.

“Alright, let’s go.” Sumire leads Mamoru out of the room, and they walk down the stairs until they reach the kitchen.

“Ki, don’t you think it’s too dark in this place?” Mamoru asked.

“Yuhi-san and I didn’t get a chance to decorate properly after we moved in since we were busy.”

“But these dark walls make the place even darker,” Mamoru said, concerned. “If you don’t have time, I can help you paint the walls.”

At those words, Sumire turned to him. “Were you serious about coming to visit? What if you get caught?”

“Toh actually advised me the other day to quit as soon as possible since the media is trying to stir up some trouble.” For more chapters, please visit

Sumire sighs. “Oh those pictures.”

“It’s not what you are thinking, Ki.” Mamoru panicked. “I don’t have that type of relationship with her. I only went with her to the hotel because I was following her, and she caught me.”

Hearing his explanation only led to her sighing again. Ru’s stealth skills have never been the best. This is why she always made sure they stuck together on missions. He is strong and intelligent, but even he has his flaws.

“But, if you do that, what about your mission?”

“It’s fine. I was almost done anyway. I’d gathered enough information. Moreover, I am worried about you, Ki.”

Sumire couldn’t miss the concern in his tone. Even now, he hasn’t changed. She would never have guessed that Mamoru was going through an inner turmoil or battle.


Calm down, Mamoru, no matter how cute she looks.

‘Do not kiss her.’

But he almost did it earlier when he shared his scarf with her. He wanted nothing more than to kiss her and hug her tightly. A deep sigh escapes his lips. What on earth is he thinking? Coming here was already overboard, but now he has such thoughts. However, after having that talk, he could no longer stay away.

Toh is right, he is acting like a fool. Even if he can no longer date Sumire, at the very least, he should meet with her and remain by her side. Before they dated, they were always together anyway, and while they cannot return to those days. At the very least, he wants to be here for her when Yuhi isn’t around.

After a few minutes, Sumire prepares some potato chip fried rice and instant ramen salad.

Mamoru laughed, this part of her hadn’t changed.

Sumire pouted. “We have to eat healthily.”

The girl suddenly caressed his cheeks. “Ru, you’ve lost a lot of weight. I know you haven’t been eating properly. If you stay for breakfast, I will make you something more filling in the morning.”

Stay overnight? Mamoru felt his heartbeat skip at Sumire’s suggestion. No, no, no. How could he possibly stay here overnight? What if he loses control? Does she have any idea how badly he is restraining himself already? He is about to refuse when Sumire speaks up.

“I think Huan would like it if he fell asleep with both of us.”

Staying over aside, do they have to share the same bed? Sure the kid will be in between them. But this suggestion is too careless. Then again, she was the same before they dated too, she would randomly fall asleep by his side, and whenever she invited him over, he would end up sleeping beside her.

“Err, I don’t mind. But, are you okay with that?” Mamoru awkwardly averted his gaze.

“Y-y-yes. I-I know you won’t do anything.” Sumire stammered equally as embarrassed.

“R-Right, of– of course not.”

Mamoru immediately regretted those words when he heard her sigh in relief. This is why nobody ever took him as a threat for Sumire’s love? Toh mentioned it, too, that he was being too safe.

‘There is nothing wrong with being affectionate with the girl you love.’

Being affectionate when they are dating is fine. But they aren’t dating now. How could he possibly make a move on her now?
