Fruits Basket Vol. 15 by Natsuki Takaya

Main Character: Tohru Honda
Location: Japan
Time period: Contemporary
Genre: YA Manga, Fantasy

Yuki tells Kakeru a bit about his isolated and lonely childhood, and admits that though he loves Tohru it is because he has found in her the nurturing care that he yearned for from his mother.

Meanwhile, rehearsals for the play are not going well. Tohru just cannot be mean as the stepsister. Quickly the script is rewritten to accommodate the personalities of the cast. Cinderella (Hana-chan) dresses in black and would rather run a yakiniku shop, Prince Chaming (Kyo) would rather dance with the stepsister, Tohru, and Tohru breaks character long enough to almost declare her feelings for Kyo. Momoji brings his video camera and tapes the play. Tohru asks him to take a copy to Kureno so he can see Uo-Chan as the stepmother.
