I rushed to Tsubaki's house first thing in the morning the next day.[np]

The train was empty, typical of a weekend morning.[np]

Tsubaki immediately presented her brother to me as she answered the door.[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_01_s r=tubaki_a_si_00_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7043]“Hey, Onii-chan!”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7043]“お兄ちゃん、こんにちはー!”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Hi...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“お……”[np]

I was taken aback somewhat.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Hey, you look pretty good.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おう、元気いいなー”[np]

...Given the fact that he was taken hostage and trapped in an abandoned hospital for a week.[np]

@chr r=tubaki_a_si_04_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1739]“Right? And here we were worrying about him.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1739]“でしょ? わたしも心配してたんだけどね”[np]

Tsubaki recovered her smile.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Were you cold?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“寒くなかったか?”[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_01b_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7044]“Mh-mh. It was dark, but the room was warm.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7044]“んーん。真っ暗だったけど、お部屋はあったかかったよー”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What about food?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ご飯は?”[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_06_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7045]“I had a lot of bread. There were even snacks.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7045]“パンがたくさんあったよ。お菓子もあったよー”[np]

...That's pretty luxurious for a hostage.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Do you remember anything about the kidna-... I mean, who were you staying with?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“犯人……いやその、広明くんは、どんな人についていったんだ?”[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_00_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7046]“Mr. Horse~.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7046]“お馬さんだったよー”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Horse?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“馬?”[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7047]“Yup. He said he was a relative of my dad. Told me to be a good boy and just wait there for a little while.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7047]“うんっ。お父さんの親戚の人だって言ってた。ちょっとおうちに帰れなくなるけど、いい子にして待ってなさいって言われた”[np]

...A man with a horse mask, I'm guessing.[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_06_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7048]“I thought he was scary in the car, but he's a good person. He gave me candy and toys and stuff.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7048]“最初、車に乗ったときは、怖い人かと思ったけど、お菓子くれたり、玩具くれたりして、いい人だったよー”[np]

Well, the kidnapper got Hiroaki on his side pretty easily.[np]

@chr l=hiroaki_a_01b_s
[nm t="広明" s=hir_7049]“Sis, were you lonely?”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7049]“お姉ちゃん、寂しかったでしょー?”[np]
;;Well, centralization between nii-chan/nee-chan and bro/sis has been shot to hell. Kanon says it too much to adapt as Bro every time (despite the fact that my little sister calls me nothing but Bro), but I'll be damned if I won't occasionally use Sis/Bro. Plus, it's been varied across the other scripts. Just noting for measure. - pondr

Hiroaki flashed a mischievous smile.[np]

@chr r=tubaki_b_si_16_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1740]“Gosh, this kid is... c'mon...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1740]“もうっ、この子は……ほんとに……”[np]

Tsubaki looked like she was going to cry.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“All's well that ends well, I guess.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんにしても、よかったな”[np]

@chr r=tubaki_c_si_04_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1741]“It's finally over. I can start writing in my diary again.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1741]“一件落着だね。今日からようやく日記を再開できるよ”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What, you haven't been writing in it lately?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんだよ、最近は書いてなかったのか”[np]

@chr r=tubaki_c_si_04b_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1742]“Yeah, apparently I've been so upset lately I couldn't even continue writing in my diary. Period.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1742]“うんっ、日記も書けなくなるほど動揺していたみたいでした○”[np]

Tsubaki made a refreshing smile.[np]

Their family will be facing a move after this, but the situation was finally under control.[np]

That is, until this girl appeared...[np]

@chr c=tubaki_b_si_01_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1743]“Oh, Haru-chan, what's up?”[np]

@chr r=haru_c_se_01_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7684]“I heard Hiroaki-kun's back.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7684]“広明くんが帰ってきたと聞いたんで”[np]

Tsubaki turned her head aside and looked at me.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Yeah, Usami was right beside me when I received the phone call from you yesterday.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ああ、昨日電話もらったときに、宇佐美もすぐ横にいたんだよ”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1744]“What? That late? What were you two doing...?”[np]

Usami walked up to Hiroaki as Tsubaki interrogated me.[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7050]“Hiya lady with the messy hair.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7050]“髪の毛ボーボーのお姉ちゃん、こんちはー”[np]
;;borrowing a touch from the FSN anime dub, where onii-san is tl'd as mister (rather effectively if it wasn't a hint that Ilya was actually Shirou's sister... oops spoil, hope no one reading this hasn't played FSN yet). - pondr

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7685]“Hiya. Are you doin' alright?”[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7051]“Everybody's been asking that. I'm fine!”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7051]“みんなに聞かれるよー。だいじょうぶだよー”[np]

@chr r=haru_c_se_04_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7686]“Really? You can tell me anything, you know that, right?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7686]“ホントかー? わたしにはなんでも言うんだぞー?”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_b_si_03b_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1745]“Haru-chan, I'm sorry about yesterday.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1745]“ハルちゃん、きのうはごめんね”[np]

@chr r=haru_c_se_03_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7687]“Hmm?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7687]“ん?”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_b_si_03_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1746]“I can't help but think that I was really mean.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1746]“ひどいこと言っちゃったような気がして”[np]

@chr r=haru_c_se_01_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7688]“Don't worry about it, I'm sorry too. I never realized what I was doing was hurting you.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7688]“気にしてない。わたしこそ、お前を知らず知らず傷つけていたようで、申し訳なく思ってる”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_14b_s
Upon hearing this, Tsubaki sighed in relief.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_00_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1747]“Well, since you're here, want to come in? We're moving soon, so it's quite messy, but the living room is still good enough to entertain.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1747]“せっかくだし、上がってく? 引越しが近いから、散らかってるけど、居間はまだ手をつけてないから”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7689]“Right, and we still have to call the police.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7689]“そうだな、警察にも連絡しないといけないしな”[np]

Right after she mentioned it...[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_13c_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1748]“P-police?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1748]“けい、さつ?”[np]


Tsubaki's face turned green.[np]
@bgm storage=bgm_27
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1749]“What do you mean, call the police?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1749]“警察って、どういうこと?”[np]

@chr c=hiroaki_a_03_s r=haru_c_se_19_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7690]“I meant just what I said... we have to report to the police about this.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7690]“どういうことって……一連の事件を警察に通報するんだ”[np]

That's the reason Usami came by today.[np]

I have to think of a way to prevent Tsubaki from doing so...[np]

But the following turn of events caught me by surprise.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_12_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1750]“What are you saying?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1750]“なに言ってるの?”[np]

Tsubaki's lips quivered.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_03_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1751]“I will not call the police.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1751]“そんなことしないよ”[np]

@chr r=haru_b2_se_15b_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7691]“...What did you say?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7691]“……なんだって?”[np]

Usami frowned.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_13b_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1752]“It's not right, Haru-chan!”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1752]“おかしいよ、ハルちゃん”[np]

@chr r=haru_b2_se_16_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7692]“Not right? Me?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7692]“おかしい? わたしが?”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1753]“A smart person like you should understand, right?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1753]“ハルちゃんみたいに頭のいい人ならわかるでしょう?”[np]

@chr r=haru_b2_se_15b_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7693]“So you still don't want to call the police?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7693]“まだ、警察を頼る気はないのか?”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_c_si_21b_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1754]“O-of course, how could you say such a thing?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1754]“あ、当たり前だよ、なんて恐ろしいこと言うの?”[np]

Tsubaki's face read, ‘Unbelievable’.[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7694]“Why...?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7694]“なぜだ……?”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_c_si_22_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1755]“I-isn't it obvious? Calling the police will only irritate the kidnapper. What do you think would happen then?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1755]“だ、だって、そうじゃない? 警察に連絡したら、犯人が怒るよ? そしたら、どうなると思う?”[np]

@chr r=haru_b2_se_15_s
Usami's eyes met mine for a brief moment.[np]

...Tsubaki's afraid of a possible second or third kidnapping.[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1756]“You already angered the kidnapper once when you swapped out the ransom. You're going to get someone killed if you keep saying stuff like that!”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1756]“ハルちゃんは、身代金をすりかえて、一度犯人を怒らせたのに、また、そんなこと言われても困るよっ!”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7695]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7695]“…………”[np]

Usami fell silent, as if trying to restrain herself.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_c_si_22b_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1757]“I-I'm sorry. I know you're worried about me, but we can't call the police. It's out of the question.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1757]“ご、ごめんね、心配してくれてるのはわかるんだよ、だけど、警察には連絡しないよ、ぜったい”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7696]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7696]“…………”[np]

Usami gazed into Tsubaki with the eyes of a beast.[np]

@chr r=haru_b2_se_15b_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7697]“So you fear this man and his retaliation so much that you're afraid to even hate him? Don't you realize that you're letting him walk all over you?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7697]“犯罪者の報復を恐れるがあまり、犯罪者を憎もうともしないのは、あまりにも弱腰というものじゃないか?”[np]
;;I feel like the line just got boofed. It doesn't sound better, but it matches the very epic voice file better and is puts the emphasis on more accurate parts, I think... the last line didn't emphasize that the cowardly act is fearing even one's own feelings. - pondr
;;sorry but the old sentence was just too funky

Usami squeezed the sentence out of her mouth.[np]

@chr l=tubaki_c_si_22_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1758]“Haru-chan, you couldn't possibly understand. Nothing like this has ever happened to your family, has it?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1758]“ハルちゃんにはわからないよ、ハルちゃんの家族がこんなことになったわけじゃないでしょ?”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1759]“My heart nearly stopping every time the phone rang, wondering whether Hiroaki would come back or not whenever the wind blew and rattled the windows, not being able to sleep throughout the whole night...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1759]“家の電話が鳴るだけで心臓が飛び跳ねるくらい驚いて、風で窓が鳴っただけで、広明が帰ってきたんじゃないかって、夜中に目が覚めるんだよ?”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1760]“I never want to go through that again.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1760]“そんなのはもういやだよ”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7698]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7698]“…………”[np]

@chr l=tubaki_a_si_03_s
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1761]“I'm sorry, but that's all I have to say.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1761]“ごめんね、そういうわけだから”[np]

Tsubaki closed her eyes in anguish.[np]

What an unexpected development.[np]

There couldn't be a better outcome, for me at least.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well then, Usami...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“というわけだ、宇佐美”[np]

@chr r=haru_b_se_15_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_7699]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7699]“…………”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What? You want to say something?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんだ? なにか言いたそうだな?”[np]

In the end, Usami didn't help one bit.[np]

I'm sure she's not quite ready to just let this drop, but regardless, she no longer has any right to stick her nose into Tsubaki's family affairs.[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_7700]“I'm glad Hiroaki-kun returned safely. I'll be leaving now.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_7700]“広明くんが無事で本当によかった。帰ります”[np]

She turned away after she finished.[np]

Hiroaki grabbed Tsubaki's sleeves.[np]

She wore a tight expression.[np]

Looking back on the horror and misfortune of the past few days, I'd be more surprised if she was acting like a normal schoolgirl...[np]
;;It's normal to be abnormal

As if trying to suppress her shivering, she crossed her arms and hugged herself.[np]

We're all done here.[np]

Both the kidnapping and the change in Tsubaki's attitude were developing in a way that benefited me.[np]

I must have the luck of the devil or something.[np]
;;The next line is nothing but a cutesy devil reference, and it JUST SO HAPPENS that (WIN) we English speakers can combine the concept of luck with a cutesy devil idiom ;) Thus, just scrapped 133 and put the idiom into 132. - pondr

Is little miss goody two-shoes Tsubaki actually asking a man out late at night?[np]

...I get the gist that this girl is interested in me.[np]

Honestly, it was kind of...[np]
;;I've been crusading around trying to make sweet decision options. This one was kinda tougher than a lot of the others. - pondr
;;this is better, imo

;This chick's annoying.

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_04_b

[nm t="京介"]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“…………”[np]

Wow... she didn't even think twice about it.[np]

Talk about zero cautiousness.[np]

I should really have a nice chat with her tonight.[np]
;;or give her a dicking.

[nm t="京介"]“Well, I'll see you then...”[np]

Tsubaki's voice lingered in my ears.[np]
;;Pondr I think this flows better, thoughts? Original line: Tsubaki’s voice echoed in my ears reluctantly. - meisnewbie
;;Yeah that line was shit, good call. Though I don't think she's regretful, the whole point is she doesn't even realize it's not a good idea! So maybe the line should be more like this... thanks though, that was definitely needed! - pondr

[nm t="京介"]“How's Hiroaki doing now?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“広明くんの具合はどうだ?”[np]

It's ten at night.[np]

I brought Tsubaki to my apartment.[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1780]“No problems at all. It's like he forgot ever being kidnapped.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1780]“平気みたいだよ。まるで誘拐されたことをもう忘れてるみたい”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Seems like the kidnapper took care of Hiroaki really well.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“犯人は、広明くんを丁重に扱ってたみたいだな”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_b_si_18_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1781]“Not to mention he returned him safe and sound.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1781]“ちゃんと返してくれたしね”[np]

She smiled gently.[np]

Tsubaki doesn't seem to hate the kidnapper.[np]

I made coffee and sat down opposite Tsubaki.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Say...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“で?”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1782]“Hm?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1782]“え?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Have you calmed down a bit?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“気分、落ち着いたか?”[np]

Tsubaki had said earlier that she wanted to feel me next to her.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_00_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1783]“Yeah, a bit...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1783]“うん、少しね……”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I see...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そうか……”[np]

I wondered as I watched Tsubaki drink the coffee...[np]

What does she have to be insecure about?[np]

Hiroaki's back, it's all over.[np]

Is she nervous about the move?[np]

Well, she is leaving a home she spent her whole life in...[np]

[nm t="京介"]“How are the preparations for the move going? Isn't the deadline approaching?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“引越しの準備、進んでるか? もうすぐ期日だけど?”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_04_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1784]“We're taking care of that pretty smoothly. Everything'll probably work out fine.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1784]“ちょこちょこやってたから、たぶんだいじょうぶ”[np]

...Were they preparing for the move while Hiroaki was still being held hostage?[np]

She really has things together. I can definitely see why Tsubaki is the center of her family.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“You don't want to move, do you?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“やっぱり、嫌だよな。引越しは”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_08b_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1785]“We don't have any other choice. You tried your best to help us too.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1785]“しょうがないことだよ。浅井くんは精一杯してくれたんだし”[np]

Judging by her tone, it didn't sound like she was afraid of moving.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1786]“Speaking of which, your apartment is really huge.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1786]“それにしても、すごいおうちだね”[np]

Looks like she wants to change the topic.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Oh yes. Come to think of it, it's your first time here, isn't it?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ああ、部屋に上がるのは初めてだったな?”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_00_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1787]“How big is this place?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1787]“何畳くらいあるの?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“The same question as Usami, eh?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“宇佐美と同じ事を聞くな?”[np]

I laughed through my nose.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1788]“Haru-chan...?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1788]“ハルちゃん……?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Hm?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“あ?”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1789]“Haru-chan's been here too. Yeah, you mentioned that.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1789]“ハルちゃんも、来たことあるんだ。そっか、なんか言ってたね”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What? Is something wrong?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんだ? なにかまずいのか?”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_08_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1790]“No...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1790]“ううん……”[np]

Tsubaki shook her head. She seemed uncomfortable.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Right, you and Usami have been a bit awkward lately.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そういやお前、最近、宇佐美とちょっとギクシャクしてんな”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_13b_b
Tsubaki's eyebrows jumped.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_06_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1791]“So, you can tell?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1791]“そう、見える?”[np]
;;hell, talk about matching the voice file. - pondr

[nm t="京介"]“I can tell.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“見えるよ”[np]

Tsubaki hesitated before going on.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_06b_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1792]“Does Haru-chan like you, Azai-kun...?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1792]“ハルちゃんって、浅井くんのこと好きなのかな……”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Wh-...!?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“な……!?”[np]

Cold sweat burst from my skin.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Please don't say such disgusting things while I'm drinking coffee unless you want it all over your face. How could that possibly be true?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おぞましいことを言うな。んなわけあるかよ”[np]
;;I want it all over my face

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_06_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1793]“But... you guys are always together lately, aren't you?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1793]“でも、ここんところ、いつもいっしょにいるでしょう?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“We were trying to find Hiroaki together.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そりゃあ、二人で広明くんの行方を追っていたわけだからな”[np]

...I wasn't much help though.[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1794]“To tell the truth, I came here tonight to ask about that matter.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1794]“今日はね、本当は、そのことを聞きに来たの”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“...Well, it's not like I can tell you how Usami feels.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“……そのことって……おれは宇佐美の気持ちなんて知らんぞ”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_c_si_23d_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1795]“Right, but... I...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1795]“うん、でも、わたしは……”[np]

She lowered her eyes.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんだ?”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_c_si_23c_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1796]“Well, Azai-kun... I... uhm...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1796]“わたしは、浅井くんのことが……えっと……”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“…………”[np]

This is upsetting.[np]
;;my usual "pain in the ___" or headache aren't concerned enough. Kyousuke, to my knowledge, is feeling a little guilt here. - pondr

I'm not sure what sort of misconception she's arrived at, but I was only taking advantage of Tsubaki.[np]

There was no love there whatsoever.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Hey, Tsubaki.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おい、椿姫”[np]

I spoke in a deep voice.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I understand what you're trying to say.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“お前の気持ちはなんとなくわかった”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_12_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1797]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1797]“……っ”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, I should've known, what with you coming over at this hour.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“こんな時間に来るくらいだしな”[np]

Tsubaki's face froze.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“You're saying you want to be a couple, right?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“つきあいたいとか、そういう話だろ?”[np]

Tsubaki remained speechless.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, I'll think about it.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“まあ、考えておくよ”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1798]“Sorry?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1798]“え?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I don't hate you, but I don't love you, either.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“お前のことは嫌いでもないけど、とりわけ好きってわけでもないから”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1799]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1799]“…………”[np]

She was waiting for my next sentence.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Maybe you should go home for now.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ひとまず今日は帰れ”[np]

[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1800]“Mm? Ah, yeah...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1800]“え? あ、うん……”[np]

But Tsubaki didn't budge.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_08_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1801]“Uh, um... what can I do to make you accept me?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1801]“え、えっと……どうやったら、つきあってもらえるかな?”[np]

I smiled.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I couldn't tell you. But what I can tell you is that you should never enter a boy's room at this hour.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“さあな。とりあえず、こんな時間に男の部屋にほいほいとあがりたがるのは、やめろよ”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_09_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1802]“Huh? Why not?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1802]“え? どうして?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“They'll think you're easy.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“軽く見える”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_08b_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1803]“Right. Sorry.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1803]“そうなんだ。ごめんね”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I know you're not actually an easy girl. Even so, you should pay attention to how other people see you.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“実際、お前が軽い女じゃないことは知ってるがな。でも、そういう体裁みたいなのは、気にしたほうがいいぞ”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_08_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1804]“I should?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1804]“気にした方がいい?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Yeah, I hate attention. I don't want rumors to spread about me bringing girls home.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ああ、おれは、目立つのが嫌いだ。女を連れ込んでるとか噂されたくないしな”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_a_si_12_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1805]“Should I try to wear more stylish clothes too?”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1805]“服装とかもオシャレなほうがいいかな?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Certainly. It's important to keep up your outward appearance.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“まあな。見栄ってのは大事だと思う”[np]

@chr c=tubaki_c_si_04_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1806]“I'll do my best.”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1806]“がんばってみるよ”[np]

For some reason, she was encouraged.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_c_si_04b_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1807]“...Whew. I was just wondering what I would do if you told me to stop writing in my diary...”[np]
;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1807]“……よかった。日記やめろ、とか言われたらどうしようかと思った”[np]

I couldn't pinpoint exactly what it was, though.[np]

@chr c=tubaki_b_si_15b_b
[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_1809]“Good night.”[np]

I walked Tsubaki back home.[np]

She seemed nervous the entire time. She hardly spoke a word.[np]


@black rule=rule_d_b time=1500

Though there were some difficulties, at long last, the annoying events revolving around Tsubaki were finally coming to an end.[np]

From tomorrow forth, my everyday life will return again.[np]

How should I respond to Tsubaki's feelings?[np]

This question nagged the back of my mind.[np]
