(If u r on kitchen princess site, i'm Akane.
!!!!!!!!!!!!! CHapter 45 !!!!!!
Najika is preparing for the Confectionary Competition with Akane's help. Her opinion, that is.
So when Najika goes to the kitchen to go prepare more, Seiya comes up and says ,"What, Najika's in a good mood today. Of course, that idiot Student Council President's feelings aren't that deep."
Akane hears this and objects. She says ," Najika, she has always wished for the happiness of others. But, this was the first time she had her own wish." and there's a picture of Najika saying " I want to be together with Daichi forever."
"For someone like you who does not understand others' feelings, could never win any competition."
Seiya is surprised. Later Najika comes back in after Akane leaves. Seiya says to Najika " Shouldn't you rest for a bit? In times like this you shouldn't try too hard."
Najika says, "But... There's not much time left before the competition, so there's no time to rest. This is my dream."
Then seiya recalls Akane saying " the first time she had her own wish."
Then seiya hugs Najika.
" Work hard for the Competition."
Najika :" Yeah."
THen she thinks, " That's right... Right now I have to focus on the Competition. Because I can already no longer be by Daichi's side."
Now it's Daichi! He puts his bag down on a table and looks at a picture of Sora. Then he hears knocking on the door. It's his dad. he says ," Daichi, could you come here for a moment?"
Daichi :" What is it?"
Dad : "We.."
Daichi : "What are..."
Dad:" That is....when there's time we should eat together."
Now, there's a table with one chair on either side so two chairs. There's water and a pan of paella in the middle. Daichi is quite surprised. His dad says ," This is... Sorry, I've only prepared this. Because I only know how to make this."
Dad : " Today's dinner is prepared by Father."
Daichi is surprised. "Dad made this?! I thought you didn't ever enter the kitchen?"
"Because daichi likes rice, I made spanish rice, Paella."
"This is Spanish cooking, and you have to use this kind of flat pan for it. You can use vegetables, Meat or fish as long as its all put into the pan with the rice, oil and some other ingredients and cook it then it's fine. When all these flavours are put together, it tastes very nice. Paella, isn't it just like life? It's made of all the good and bad things you've gone through till now...and paella for only one person doesn't taste good, so this is a dish that must be made many times... and shared with the family." Daichi's dad offers him a plate. Daichi takes a spoonful and says it's good. Then his dad says.
"From the time your mom died, we haven't eaten like this. Unknowingly, I started to feel sad, and the school, even more so became my aim in life. I think I must have hurt you deeply. I'm very sorry. From today onwards, are you willing to share paella with your father?"
'Because it's my family, it's harder to open my mouth to talk.' daichi thinks.
"Me too, I didn't realise father's pain, I feel so ignorant..."
"next time, let us be with mother, the three of us, eating paella together."
'Whether its troubles or happiness, let us share it.'
'It's only a family like this.'
"Hey, dad. This paella, did Najika teach you how to make it? When I eat it, I know, because it tastes like Najika made it."
"Of course,you noticed."
Flashback saying 'That is..Director, I have a request. Could you make a dish for Daichi? I think that eating as a family is the greatest happiness. That's why I hope that Daichi can be happy."
"She really thinks of you from the heart." Then Daichi gets up. The director looks at him. "Daichi?"
"I have to see Najika!"
"See najika.. don't you know? She has already left the Campus. She's already left for Paris."
"Ah, Hagio sensei? Yeah I'm leaving now. I will definitely work hard."
Hagio-sensei :" I'm sure you can win. No matter where you are, I will always cheer for you."
Najika :"Yeah, byebye."
Hagio sensei puts down the phone. "Work hard, Najika. -----!" Then she suddenly starts coughing, the breathing deeply. Then Kenta comes in (I hope I didn't get his name wrong) "Hagio sensei? Are you still using the phone -----?" then his face looks shocked. "SENSEI!" Hagio sensei is lying on the floor unconscious.
Then it goes back to the Airport. "Then you must be careful. Because you're my friend, so you must have faith."
"Thank you, Akane."
Seiya :"We must win this competition especially!"
Najika :" Yeah... yeah!"
Then she thinks,' Goodbye.... Daichi.' and the plane takes off.
CCHAAAAPTER 46! 2 chapters left!!!
This should tell u daichi is the flan prince!
Najika: Wow, you can see the Eiffel Tower from here.
Thinking: Dad, Mom. I've come to Paris. The place where you wanted to go to... Tomorrow is the day of the competition. Please watch over me. Dad, Mom.
Seiya: Najika, Have you prepared for tomorrow?
Najika: Yes, I'm looking over the recipe now. Mizuno, you're probably using those amazing candy flowers aren't you?
Seiya: Yeah, I'll show the whole world my skill. What about you?
Najika: I want to make a rainbow cake. This represents my dream. That is to make the consumers filled with the 7 colours of the rainbow.
Seiya: This is just like an invention made by you (translation sounds a bit weird, so you can also think of it as: This is so much like you)
Najika: Ah.. But I'm so nervous!!I won't be able to sleep tonight. If I was an adult, I could at least drink wine to help.
Seiya: (winks) Then I'll give you some cocktail.
Najika: What?! No, we can't drink alcohol!
Seiya: Idiot ~ I'm making a cocktail without any alcohol in it. This is what the bartender of my family's restaurant taught me.
(After it is made)
Seiya: this is a cocktail which suits you.
Najika: I feel like I've become an adult. What is it called?
Seiya: "Grey Maiden."
Seiya: In the beginning she was covered in grey dust. She was never invited to the palace ball.But, one day a prince will see her... And let her become a real princess.
Najika: Ha...Honestly, I'm nothing like a princess in a palace.
Seiya: Then... You are the Kitchen Princess.
Najika (thinking): Kitchen... Princess...
Seiya: Is there a chance... that I can be your prince? The feelings I have for you are real.
Najika (thinking): If it was Mizuno, who shares the same dreams and aims as me, it would naturally be compatible. *Thinks of Daichi* But....
Najika: Uh..I'm sorry...I still.. I still like Daichi. Even though I've already been rejected.
Seiya: You really won't forget about him?
Najika: Before Daichi finds his true happiness, I have to watch over him..
(thinking) Even though I can no longer be by his side...
Najika: Because he is the person I like.
(thinking) Only these feelings will never change.
Seiya: Of course, I... lost again.
Najika: I'm sorry.
Seiya: (looks at Najika) Don't make that face!
Seiya: You are my greatest partner.
(Thinking) Thank you, Mizuno.
*Phone starts ringing*
Seiya: Eh? You brought your handphone.
Najika: No. This is only used for emergencies...What happened? *picks up* Hi.
Fuuta (on the other side): Najika?!
Najika: Fuuta? What happened?
Fuuta: What should I do... What should I do... I don't know what I should do.
Najika: Wait... Are you crying? Calm down a bit, Fuuta.
Fuuta: Help! Najika, help! Hagio-sensei is going to die.
Najika (thinking): Eh?
Najika: What... Fuuta... What happened to Hagio-sensei?
Fuuta: Sensei fainted, and the ambulance already took her away... The doctor said her heart wasn't good. If they don't operate soon, her life will be in danger. and they said it would be a very complicated operation. The doctor said... They don't know if they can save her...
(thinking) How can this be? Because... When I called her, she was fine...
(flashback) No matter where you are. Najika, I'll cheer for you.
Najika: I have to... I.. have to go to where Hagio-sensei is...
Seiya: Go back... But tomorrow is the competition! It's the day your dreams come true!
Najika: But...Hagio-sensei isn't well. If I can be at her side... I'll regret it for the rest of my life!
Akane: A person like you who can't understand others feelings could never win any competition.
Seiya: I'll help you prepare your ticket. You can return to the airport now.
Najika: Yeah.. Yeah.
(thinking) I'm begging you..God. Don't take away someone who is important to me again...
Najika (Thinking) Sensei, you have to be alright. Hagio-sensei!
*pulls back the curtain, revealing Hagio-sensei, eyes closed.*
Nurse: Oh my, are you here to visit her?
Najika: That is.. is Sensei...
Nurse:She's just taken some anesthetic. She just needs some rest. The operation was a success. Although she has to stay in the hospital for another three weeks, there's no problem.
Najika(Thinking): No problem.
Najika:...Sensei... That's great....
(thinking) I can see Sensei's smile again....
*Notices all the rest of the orphans in one corner sleeping*
Nurse: Everyone's tired from crying so much...Eh? Wasn't there.. another boy who was taking care... Where did he run off to?
*Najika now outdoors walking down a path*
Najika (thinking): Someone who was taking care of Sensei..Who could it be?
Najika: This is...
Najika: This is where I met my Flan Prince.
*Flashback* When you eat something good, you smile.
Najika(thinking): That sentence.. was always the strength that was supporting me. It's etched into my memories. A memory which I won't forget...*rainbow appears*
Najika: A rainbow...
*A boy with black hair is standing at one end*
Najika (thinking): I always wanted to see him. The person who gave me the light of existence..*Flashback*Daichi is giving her flan.
*Daichi turns around*
Najika (thinking): Daichi....
Join my Hunger Games group!

Kitchen Princess - Final Chapter - Najika and the Creme Brulee
Daichi : Najika, why are you in Hokkaido..
Najika: I heard that Hagio-sensei fainted of illness, so I rushed back.
Daichi, you... you came to take care if Hagio-sensei.
Najika:.....I....Have something I'd like to ask you one more time.That time.. when I was younger... when I was drowning, the boy who saved me, was you, Daichi, wasn't it?
Najika : Daichi, you are my flan prince, aren't you?
Daichi: That's right.
That day, I saw a girl crying.And because I noticed it, I followed her. When I gave her the flan, her smile, even now I can still remember it clearly.
Najika (thinking): I was always, always looking, whenever I was met with difficulties, my motivation to try harder, was meeting my Flan Prince. After I found him, I would thank him. And I have
finally, found him
*begins to cry*
Daichi :Najika. I had lost my memories of going to Hokkaido. You've probably already heard that from Dad. Sora, the reason he lied to you and said that he was the Flan Prince, was also because he wanted to avoid those memories from returning to me.I was always being protected by Sora. So, I couldn't forget about Sora. I always felt that I couldn't be the only one with Najika, living happily together.
*Najika stops crying*
Daichi: And what you taught Dad to make, Paella, I already ate it with him. It was really delicious. It made me regret that I never treated Dad nicely. When Sora was still around, I also regret not being able to be with him without fighting. I... almost lost something important again.I already don't want to lose anything important to me anymore. Even life is reliant on the decisions made on my own.
This is what you taught me.
I... Like Najika.
(By this point, Najika is crying.)
I want to be together with Najika.
(Daichi bends down so that his head is own the same level as Najika's. He wipes away her tears and then hugs her.)
Najika (Thinking): Daichi. I definitely will never let go, this time I will definitely be happy. Allow the two of us to be happy together.
In the hospital
Najika: Hagio-sensei! Can you sit up?
Hagio-sensei: Yes, I'm fine now.
More importantly, I must apologise to you. I caused you to miss the competition.
Najika: No, there will be another competition next time, and Hagio-sensei recovered too. This is great.
Fuuta (rushing in): Najika, on TV, come watch the TV!
TV: Seiya Mizuno, in the International Junior Chef Confectionery Competition held in Paris, is the Japanese person who one first place.
On screen is Seiya in the middle holding this trophy, and some other people in chef clothes clapping.
Daichi, Najika and Fuuta are staring at the TV.
Fuuta: Is that Najika's friend? Amazing!
(thinking): Congratulations, Mizuno..
Interviewer : The dessert you made is just too amazing. So then, this dessert, could you tell us what it is called?
Seiya : It's called...
(It's a rainbow cake with all the flowers at the side and it looks really good.By the way Najika means Rainbow, according to the Wikipedia.)
Najika (thinking): This is... my dessert cake, with Mizuno's candy flowers.
It's just like a rainbow.
Seiya: This is a friend I respect. And also, a future first-class chef's name. This is something that the two of us made. That's why the best in the world is not just me, but Seiya Mizuno and Najika Kazami. Two people.
Two people are the best in the world...
Seiya: But.. The next competition will definitely be properly judged. But I will be the one winning! Are you watching, Najika?
Daichi: That's just like him!
Najika is smiling : Yeah.
(thinking) Thank you, Mizuno. But, being able to win first, was all due to your own strength.
Interviewer: So, the final question, what was the first dish that you made?
When I was young, I was always making flan. My parents were really proud. So they always gave it to customers at out restaurant.
Najika (thinking): giving flan out to customers. *!*
Najika: So that's how it is... Mizuno's flan. Daichi's family received it.
That's why the Prince's flan tasted just like Mizuno's.
That day, when I met Daichi, I also met Mizuno.
One small dessert. Could actually make me meet so many people. This is just like
Najika: Daichi. I want to keep my end of the bargain.
At Lavender House.
Najika is holding up a carton of milk and is obviously making something while Daichi is sitting at a table, watching her.
Najika (thinking): That time, Dad and Mom died leaving me alone, with no hope. But, I met Daichi, and in my dark world, he painted a rainbow.
A seven-coloured rainbow.
Mizuno, Akane, Sora-senpai, Director, Fujita-san, everyone at Lavender House, Dad, Mom, and then there is... Daichi... (Two pages featuring pictures of all the characters)
When I was sad, when I was in pain, everyone's smile encouraged me. Because everyone's words made me stronger, because everyone's warmth made me brave...(two pages featuring alot of memories from the previous volumes of KP, including the flan Prince kissing her forehead and Najika's smile.)
I'll make him the best dessert in the world.
She is holding out a plate with creme brulee in a souffle cup (sorry, don't know what it's called) and on the plate is also the Seika Academy spoon.
Najika : Creme Brulee is made using Egg yolk and fresh butter. It's a type of flan.
Daichi takes a bite.
Najika: I've already kept my promise.
... No... it's not that good yet. (smile)
Daichi: To me, the desserts that Najika make, no matter when, will be the best in the world.
Daichi kisses her forehead, they both blush. Then they kiss. xD
And outsided the window, there is a rainbow.
Najika (thinking): From now onwards, I won't waste my tears. Because I want to turn the warmth that everyone gave me into the form of a dessert, to be eaten all over the world. I hope that after everyone eats the desserts that I make, they will be energised, that they will believe in tomorrow, and will continue to have the will to live.
And then, everyone can smile, and say those magical words I want to hear.
*A hand, probably Daichi's, putting the Seika Academy spoon down*
Daichi : I'm full.
It was delicious.
There's a picture of Najika smiling, and then on the next page, a picture of flan with the Seika Academy spoon.
Kitchen Princess Special - Akane and the Black Sesame Pudding
In December there's Christmas. Daichi holding Najika's hand, presumably on a date.
In February there's Valentine's Day. Najika giving a heart-shaped cake to Daichi.
In March there's White Day.Daichi giving a necklace to Najika.
In terms of events, there are many related to love <3
(Note: White day is a day in Japan when guys give gifts to girls. Valentine's day is meant for girls giving gifts to guys.)
In April, I, who have nothing to do with love...
Akane: Having a boyfriend or a girlfriend is so great... You're smiling just by looking at the mail Najika sent you.
Daichi: I only took it out because you wanted to see it.
Mail: Try your best. (^o^)
Najika is currently participating in the Junior confectionery Chef Workshop that Kishi-san recommended. Right now, it seems hard to contact her, of course the competition between chefs is really great.
Akane: How amazing.
And also there's
the person who won first in the International Junior Chef Confectionery Competition, Seiya Mizuno.Because he won first, he could stay behind in Paris, and receive mentorship from a famous pastry chef.
Both of them are taking a closer step to acheiving their dreams...
Akane (to Daichi): Bye bye.
(Thinking) I'm the only one walking far, far behind... It's a bit lonely...
-------: Ah! Akane?
Akane: Seiya? What is it? Long time no see. How are you?
Seiya: Oh, not too bad. That aside, listen up! Petit Michelin Gourmet Food wants to write an article about me!
Akane: Eh? Isn't it that famous magazine? Amazing! Yes! I wanna see, I wanna see, I will definitely go over and take a look!
Seiya: That's right, I will be returning to Japan soon, for a while. I want to invite you for a meal then.
Akane: Eh? Why?
Seiya: Because, on the day of the competition, didn't you call me? And talked to me fiercly, like you always do. Because of that, I was able to calm down. So I won first place. That's why I want to return the favour.
Akane: If.... If that's the case, then I'll allow you to invite me.
Seiya: Alright, I'll be awaiting the day. Bye bye.
Akane (Thinking): This way, that guy will come back to Japan. I have to work hard! Becaus eI also want to be the best in the world some day.
Manager: Akane, recently you've been very energised.
Akane: Yes! I'm full of motivation! Please help me to find a bit more work, manager.
Manager: You're finally motivated. Before this, you were even saying something like "I don't like that" or "That is so annoying". It was beyond me.
Akane (Thinking): When that guy returns, (Akane resisting a lot of delicious looking cakes) if I don't improve by then, (Make-up is being applied to Akane's face) I'll be looked down upon, and I don't want that to happen. (Akane is stretching)
A few days later
Akane: What? Appear on a TV programme?
Manager: Yes. It's really great. It will allow you to become a model for young ladies. Joining the "knowledge department" programme*!
Akane: Isn't that the really famous talk show?
Manager: Also, the programme would also like to ask you abnout your diet, so they hope you can introduce come of your own desserts.
Akane: *Pause* My own... desserts?
(I have no idea about what the talk show was called because I couldn't really read the words... I kind of guessed whta they meant.)
Akane: I-I can't do this! I don't know how to cook at all!
Manager: But it's already been decided. If you can't do this, they'll use someone else. That's right. Akane, don't you have a friend who can cook? Why not just ask her to teach you how to make some healthy desserts!
Akane: That's right I still have Najika....
Akane: But then, I still can't contact her...
What should I do...
There's only... Even though, he might not be able to help anyone...
Phone: *R-R-R* Seiya Mizuno
Seiya: Oh, what's up?
Akane: That is...
It's so hard for me just to open my mouth to talk...
Well... How are things.. over at your side?
Seiya: I'm so busy, I can't really talk now.
This three-star restaurant, Miele Gopez*, already said that they wanted to use my dessert. Isn't that worthy of praise. So right now I obviously can't return to Japan.
Akane (Thinking): Eh?
But, But then, didn't you say you wanted to invite me...
Seiya: Isn't that great...
(*Again, not totally sure about the names of restaurants and things like that.)
Seiya: Besides that, didn't you have something to talk to me about...
Akane: THEN YOU CAN STAY THERE AND EAT YOUR BAGUETTES FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! *SLAM*
Akane's phone: R-R-R
Akane (thinking): That big liar!
I don't want to pick up!
I already knew... something like that could never happen....
Akane: Fujita-san... you can't do it, right...
Fujita-san (looks like.. something the cat dragged in): Because Najika isn't here, I'm really busy... Just fry me...
Akane (thinking): In that case, I can only rely on my own effort!
[Because she messed up the kitchen last time, her mom forbade her from using it]
Akane (thinking): Thankfully, I... have always been by Najika's side, and have seen her cook before.
I should be able to do it. I should be.... able to do it..... *Shows mysterious bubbling in a huge pot* *Shows milk overflowing from the cup* *shows Akane's various failures - burnt cookies, melted pudding..*
Manager: Akane! If it's really come down to this, then you should buy it from a store.
Manager: If you pretend you made it... It'll work!
Akane (thinking) That could be true.... This was a hard job to get, and I don't want to waste it.
Akane (thinking): I still bought it..
Guy from the set: Akane! I hope to learn more from you today.
Akane: Oh yes... from you as well.
Guy from the set: Is that the dessert you made on your own?
Akane: Ah, this is...
(thinking) Is it really okay.. doing something like this. To get what you want, telling lies, pretending not to know anything about it.
This way... It isn't right! It isn't right!! *recalling Seiya working hard, baking*
I can't do this!!
Akane: I'm sorry, I....
*tap* Hand on Akane's shoulder.
-----------: You forgot to bring it.
Seiya : The dessert which you made by yourself.
Guy from the set: Oh, it's black sesame pudding. Looks good.
Akane (Thinking): Seiya... How is this...
Akane: You.. how could you...
Seiya: I heard from Fujita-san, that you were met with some difficulties.
Akane: I wasn't talking about that! Come over here for a while.
I thought you still coiudln't return to Japan?
Seiya: That's true. That was how it should've been. But after that day, you didn't answer any of my calls, right? After that, I don't know why, I really watned to hear your voice, and I really wanted to see you.
..Wanted to see you.
Akane (thinking): At that time, when he told me he couldn't return to Japan, I was so sad that I really wanted to cry. I must have.. felt like him..
Akane: Me too... I also really wanted to see you. *starts crying*
Compared to you, I definitely wanted... to see you.. even more.... Uu.. now all my make-up is smeared.. It's all your fault...
Seiya kisses Akane
Akane: What.. that was what I wanted to say! Copycat!
Seiya: Eh? There wasn't any other choice, who askedyou... to make me think you're so cute!
Seiya: That's right. Do you know what date it is today?
Akane: Today... is it the 14th of April?
Seiya: That's right. Today is Black Day.
February has Valentine's day, March ahs White day, So April has Black Day. The prople who failed to find thei loved ones will gather together, wear black clothes, eat black noodles and comfort each other.
I was rejected by you as a friend, so I failed. So this is the young master's* Black Day.
Let's eat together, cast those matters of being rejected aside, and continue to move forward.
Akane (thinking): This guy, even though he thinks he's so great, there are timeswhen he can be very kind. He's the kind of guy that no one can predict.
Even though you should be fine already.
Akane (thinking): But, it's because he's like that,
Akane: Hm, *takes a bite of the pudding* It's delicious.
(thinking) that I love him.
Akane: I have a feeling that next year I won't have a Black Day.
Seiya: Me too.
*Both look at each other, then laugh*
Akane (thinking): That's right, for all the events that are related to love, from today onwards, I am a protagonist too.
*Seiya calls himself the Young Master.
Srry.. computer going funny can't get pics. Take a look yourself @ the website
