Hanasakeru Seishounen Episode 11 – Shape of Love (アイのカタチ)
Prologue continuation: How Kathleen and Mahaty got their groove on..
Episode 11 continues the 2nd part of the prologue story. Mahaty was still stuck at Fred’s apartment. The hired assassins somehow found out where he was staying and decides to stomp the apartment. Mahaty escaped with Kathleen leaving Jabeel behind to fight against the goons. However, Mahaty was spotted but managed to evade and stop his pursuers from going any further. Kathleen and Mahaty then spend sometime getting to know each other while holding up at the club where Kathleen works. They even got on intimate terms which led to Mahaty proposing marriage to Kathleen. Way to go Mahaty. This surprises his royal entourage because Mahaty is actually engaged to someone else. Jabeel gave Kathleen the low down on the situation and the consequences that might arise should Mahaty has his way. This alarmed Kathleen. Not wanting to cause trouble, it is better for her to avoid seeing Mahaty again. But it pains her as she realized she has fallen in love with the Prince.
However, Kathleen did manage to see her Prince one last time before he returns to Raginei. Mahaty gave Kathleen a ring that belonged to his mother with the promise to come back for her and that he’ll convince the King about his wishes. He tells Fred to take care of Kathleen while he’s gone. What he didn’t know was that Kathleen is carrying his child. Kathleen revealed this to a surprised Fred but Fred being an all round nice gentleman, offers to be the child’s foster father. Kathleen also knew that it would be the last time she will see Mahaty. And that’s how Fred gets to marry Kathleen. He obviously loved Kathleen very much and considered the three of them (Kathleen & child) as his own real family. Fred doesn’t regret it at all.
Back to the present, a concerned Kajika question why Fred never said anything about having a weak heart. Li Ren had caught Fred murmuring the name Mahaty whilst he was half conscious. Li Ren was curious about it and started to mentally piece together the bits and pieces of Burnsworth mysterious connection with Raginei. Li Ren tries to comfort a distressed Kajika when she finally blurted out what has been really bugging her thoughts. She told Li Ren that she suspected her grandmother was unfaithful to Fred and that she might not be Fred’s grandchild. Kajika seems to be very perceptive as a child, relating the things that her Grandmother told her when she visited her at the Island. Since then, her suspicions has been upsetting her. Fred eventually tells Kajika the truth but Kajika tells Fred that he’s her one and only beloved grandfather and that she loves him very much, surprising Fred.
Later, Fred had a personal chat with Li Ren, acknowledging Li Ren’s perception of things and how he must be a really sad child (lol). Poor Li Ren being told that he isn’t as strong as he appears to be…in other words, Fred saw through the facade that Li Ren puts on. But one reassuring action Fred did though is to put his trust in Li Ren to take care of Kajika. I guess that’s one big cookie in favour of Li Ren then. So now, we know that Kajika is related to Raginei’s royal family and her dad is actually an heir to the throne. But of course, at present Kajika is unaware of all this business. Li Ren might just be curious enough to pursue more information relating to the matter. It leaves the future situations interesting. Rumaty is back next episode and so’s Eugene. Let’s see how the story develops from there.
