Tsubaki seemed to have sensed that my voice was somehow different at the moment.[np]

*page376|

I stood there speechless for a moment.[np]

*page380|
Meaningless words. Words that could neither comfort another nor satisfy myself.[np]

I'm getting dizzy again.[np]

*page384|
A nauseating storm is brewing in my head. I don't know why, but my headache is attacking me with its usual ferocity, as if following some predefined pattern.[np]
;;吐き気すら覚える頭痛は、どういうわけか、決まったパターンにしたがって襲いかかってくる。[np]

*page385|
When I feel pity or sympathy, my heart cries out like this.[np]

*page386|
[nm t="京介"]“I'll get to work...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“仕事をしよう……”[np]

*page387|
Mumbling to myself, with unsteady feet, I locked myself in the study.[np]
