"As you all know, Lilly's previous school was an all-girl one.

So this means... girls have confessed to her."

That's pretty likely. Lilly probably broke more hearts than any other of the main girls, thought thankfully she's also the one who possesses the best people-skills so she probably did a better job at turning others down than Shizune did.

Yep. Young, impressionable teenaged girls with no guys around. I can see them confusing admiration with love.

As I recall, Lilly had something of a crush on her English teacher as well.

It was her tutor actually. She turned those other confessions down purely for him despite knowing confessing to him was out of the question due to the age difference and teacher/student relationship.

Lilly Route, Act 4:

Lilly and Hisao are sharing confidences.

L: "When I moved to Yamaku, I did regret losing the friends I'd had at my other school."
L: "But there was one person whom I most regretted not seeing again. He was the reason I took up English as a future career."

“He?” Considering she came from an all-girls school, that can't have been a schoolmate then…

L: "I rejected the confessions I'd received until then for him. Every time I improved my English skills, his praise was my most treasured reward."
L: "It's funny, isn't it? Someone like me, able to boast about the people who have set eyes on me, liking someone so utterly unattainable as my tutor."
L: "It truly is the most ridiculous thing…"

H: "Did you…?"

She quickly shakes her head from side to side.

L: "I couldn't. Even then, I knew it was impossible."

A silence reigns over both of us.
This does seem to explain her ardent focus on her future in teaching English, but I can't help thinking of her confession to me.
She lost him without ever letting her feelings be known… did she somehow fear that would happen again, but with me?
I don't really know what to make of it. I've heard of such relationships before; taboos born of such things as puberty and youth.
The fact that she had the good judgment not to act on it, though, is heartening.


And there you have it.

Huh, I had completely forgotten that part. Thanks!
