->Koharu in an apron… Huff, huff…
->Mari-san, I think we should get married!
->I want to make Chiaki a huge star! I will master the way of the house-husband!
->I will make Kazusa happy! I swear it!
Title: Setsuna-san’s lovingly-made lunchbox
Setsuna: Here’s your lunch, Haruki-kun!
Haruki: Thank you, Setsuna.
Haruki: They tease me for it at the office…
Like, “Aww, look how much your wifey loves you!”…
Rice: Mwah mwah mwah
Haruki: But it’s really nice to have every day, especially with all the sides in there!
Setsuna: There’s plenty of love in it, too.
Setsuna: Maybe it’s also filled with a message that says, “Haruki-kun belongs to me!”
Setsuna: Just kidding. [heart]
Title: Shopping date with Setsuna
Setsuna: I haven’t gone on a shopping date with you in a while, Haruki-kun!
Haruki: Wait, Setsuna-san… Isn’t this the shopping district?
Setsuna: I’ve been waiting a long time for the chance to show you the magic of the shopping district, Haruki-kun.
Setsuna: All right. First, we’re getting some of those super delicious croquettes on special sale!
Setsuna: …? What is it?
Haruki: Oh, um…
Haruki: I was just thinking about how happy I am when I’m doing things with you, Setsuna…
Setsuna: Oh, you…! Haruki-kun!
Setsuna: …I’m… very happy, too. [heart]
Title: Young wife Koharu-san
Koharu: You’re early today.
Koharu: Welcome home, Senpa—
Koharu: …I mean, H-Haruki-san…
Koharu: I slipped up again. [heart]
Title: Studying with Koharu-san
Narration: After graduating from college, Koharu started working in the office of a certain restaurant chain.
Narration: With her youthful beauty and shrewd skill, she is a formidable new talent…
Koharu: Oh, yes, Haruki-san, there was something that confused me a little at work…
Haruki: Ah… If you have this data, you can probably…
Koharu: …! That makes sense.
FX: Chk chk
Koharu: Nothing… This is just taking me back a little…
Haruki: Oh, yeah, I can see why… I taught you a ton of stuff when you were studying for entrance exams.
Koharu: …Of course, at night, that was sometimes derailed by a different kind of studying…
Koharu: …Would you mind staying here and helping me with my nighttime studying, too?
Koharu: …Senpai? [heart]
Title: Returning home with Mari-san
Mari: Phew… When was the last time I came back to Japan…?
FX: Skch skch
Haruki: I know what you mean, Mari-san. Well, since work has settled down a little…
Haruki: Why don’t you take it easy while we’re here in Japan?
I’ll start by handling the return documents…
Mari: …Hey, Haruki, you wrote the wrong name there.
Haruki: Huh? I don’t think so…
Haruki: See? “Mari Kazaoka”…
Mari: That should be “Mari Kitahara,” shouldn’t it?
Mari: For crying out loud…
Mari: Pull it together, husband of mine!
Title: Mari-san and family
Mari: I’m fine with taking a break, but I’m not thrilled about visiting my folks…
Haruki: You said you got a call from your father?
Mari: He was like, “Well, at least bring your husband here!”
Mari: So I said, “If you want, I don’t even need to be there!”
Mari: Isn’t this normally how they’d get about grandkids?
That would’ve been so convenient…
FX: Grumble grumble
Mari: …Hey, Haruki.
Mari: There’s actually a nice hot spring close to where my family lives…
Mari: …The water is famous for helping people conceive.
Mari: I was thinking, maybe it’s time…
Haruki: Mari-san?! My reasoning can’t handle this!
Title: Scandal with famous actress Chiaki-san
FX: Click click
Reporter: Akira Senouchi-san! Could we have a word regarding your rumored lover?
Chiaki: Hmm… My lover?
Reporter: Please don’t dodge the question! There are photos proving it!
Chiaki: No, I mean…
Chiaki: I do have a husband.
Chiaki: And we’re just wild about each other!
Title: Chiaki-san loves her husband to the moon and back
Haruki: …Hey, Chiaki.
Are you sure you should be home this early?
I thought you were filming for that big series.
FX: Caw caw
Chiaki: Oh, it’s fiiine, Haruki.
Chiaki: They say I’m the least sociable woman in the whole cast!
Haruki: That’s not a good thing!
Chiaki: Well, if anyone has any complaints, I can just shut ‘em up with my performances.
Since I’m a star, and all!
FX: Tsk tsk
Chiaki: Heheheh! My man is the most important thing to me. [heart]
Haruki: …And this is what you want, big star?
Chiaki: It’s exactly what I want!
Chiaki: Hubby first, art second!
Title: What Kazusa wants
Narration: It’s almost our first wedding anniversary.
Kazusa’s requested a necklace.
Haruki: Hmm… You know, I was thinking about it during our trip this year…
Haruki: But we haven’t gone on a honeymoon yet, have we?
Kazusa: …The honeymoon can wait.
Kazusa: Before that, I want a present that I can wear.
Kazusa: Something that says, “I belong to you.” …Y’know?
Title: You belong to me
Narration: Now that we’ve been married for a while… Kazusa doesn’t ask for jewelry as much.
Narration: Maybe she’s decided to stop fixating on that kind of thing…
Kazusa: …I haven’t stopped.
Kazusa: You know, this shirt…
Kazusa: It’s yours.
It smells like you. [heart]
Kazusa: Yes… This makes me feel like I’ve claimed Haruki as my own…
Kazusa: And just so you know, I’ll be doing more of this from now on. [heart]
Artist: Yuuki Azuma
Title: My Dream, My Sweet
Io: …Welcome home, Takeya. Would you like to have dinner? Or a bath? Or… m-me?
Takeya: You, of course, Io. [heart]
Io: Y’know, I tried this out because you were so desperate for it, but the apron-only thing is a lot more embarrassing than I imagined it…
Takeya: I like you when you’re embarrassed, Io…
Let’s take this to the bedroom… No, right here, in the front hall—
Takeya: …And that’s when you woke me up, Haruki. Can you understand my despair…?
Haruki: No, it’s your fault for falling asleep during a lecture… Okay, okay, fine, I’m sorry! Let go of my arm! Don’t die on me!
Takeya: Give me this! Just give me this much!
Takeya: Let me enjoy Io as my naked, apron-clad wife in my dreams!
Haruki: Hey, Takeya, feel like screaming that a little louder…? She’ll break it off with you real quick.
Takeya: Yep, that actually happened. When I saw you, my wife [heart], I suddenly remembered.
Io: You are… the biggest idiot I know. Just for the record…
Takeya: You’re not gonna do it, right? I know that! I know, I know, I aggravated you a little back then… Guess the apron thing isn’t happening, huh?
Io: …Yeah, no. Not today.
Takeya: Hm? Yeah, I know you’re… not…
Takeya: Wait, “today”?
Narration: Whether or not my dream came true… is between me and Io.

How did he do it…?

Hm? What do I mean by that? Wellll, of course, I mean…
Chiaki: Shoulder rubs!
Chiaki: My sweet hubby gives the best shoulder rubs. [heart]

These stories take place after marriage, so happy endings abound! All of you had better stay happy forever, or else!!!
(*Happy ending fanatic)
Azuma-san, thank you for your contribution! Man, Takeya x Io is so great… (Nrrrgh… I wanted to draw them, too…)
Kaminoperari-san got huffy at me because he wanted to draw the scene with Takeya and Io… But I wanted to draw them too, so too bad! Takeya sure is popular… lol
I think stealing this story out from under him is perfectly in keeping with the spirit of WA2, so it’s perfect. (^^)
