School, the next morning.[np]

Two people in my class seemed somehow different today.[np]

@chr c=yuki_b_se_01_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7224]“Kyousuke-kun, I want to introduce you to someone. This is my little sister, Mizuha.”[np]

[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7084]“Wait, Nee-san!”[np]

@chr l=yuki_b_se_04b_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7225]“Oh, calm down. There's no way to keep juicy bits of information like that from spreading around, it just happens.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7225]“いいのよ、こういうことは黙っていても広まるものよ”[np]

Tokita pulled Shiratori over to my desk.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Wait, seriously? You two are sisters?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“姉妹?”[np]

I feign surprise.[np]

@chr l=yuki_b_se_01b_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7226]“Isn't it shocking?”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7226]“意外?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, actually... you two do kinda look alike...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そう言われると、少し、目鼻立ちが似ているような気もするが?”[np]

[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7227]“Keep in mind that we have different mothers, though. Right, Mizuha?”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7227]“母親が違うのよ。ねえ、水羽?”[np]

@chr r=mizuha_a_se_06_s
Shiratori nodded uncomfortably.[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_10_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7228]“I'm the daughter of a mistress who lived in the Shiratori household. We were eventually thrown out and left to fend for ourselves.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7228]“私はね、白鳥家に居座っていた愛人の娘なの。捨てられて母子ともども、家を出て行く羽目になったんだけどね”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Alright, just hold it right there. It's too early to start the soap opera stuff.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おいおい、昼ドラにはまだ早い時間だぞ?”[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_01_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7229]“If this were a soap opera, it would have much better directing.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7229]“昼ドラなら、もっともったいつけた演出が入るはずよ”[np]

She makes a casual, uninterested comeback, as if to show off her cheerfulness this morning.[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_04_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7230]“Our parents were at each other's throats day and night, rain or shine, but we played together every day.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7230]“両親は終始ごたごたしてたけど、私と水羽は毎日遊んでたわ”[np]

@chr r=mizuha_b_se_03_s
[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7085]“Azai-kun doesn't need to know our life story, you know...”[np]

@chr r=mizuha_b_se_03b_s
[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7086]“...Yeah.”[np]
;;[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7086]“……ええ”[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_04b_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7232]“Well, I think it's time you learned to like him.”[np]

[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7087]“...What?”[np]

;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7233]“彼も、きっといろいろ事情がある人よ”[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_01b_s
‘Right?’ she says, briefly glancing at me.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“The only difference is, Shiratori, unlike your big-mouthed sister, I have no intention of spouting my past.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おれは時田みたいに、自分のことをぽんぽん語るつもりはないがな”[np]
;;I have this inkling that TLC will crush this line. I don't really care. I'll redo it if it pisses you off. - pondr

[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7234]“Kyousuke-kun, be nice to Mizuha.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7234]“京介くん、水羽をよろしくね”[np]
;;And while I realize this is just a yoroshiku, I think 25 matches this well! - pondr

[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7088]“Huh?”[np]
;;[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7088]“は?”[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_03b_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7235]“We had a good heart-to-heart last night, and for some reason, Mizuha seems to dislike you.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7235]“昨日、ひと晩いっしょだったんだけどね。なにかとあなたのことが気に入らないみたい”[np]

@chr r=mizuha_b_se_06_s
[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7089]“Nee-san, stop.”[np]
;;[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7089]“姉さん、やめてよ”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, calling a ceasefire sounds good to me. I don't exactly enjoy being hated by people.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“おれはかまわんよ。おれだって、いつまでも嫌われてるってのは、気分のいいものじゃない”[np]
;;that's fine with me is in response to Mizuha getting along with Kyousuke, dropping her grudge, whatever.
;;I took that comment to mean "in response to Mizuha asking Yuki to stop" - pondr
;;nyet. That is his response to the idea that Yuki puts forward about Mizuha and Kyousuke making peace.
;;k bro. WHAT IDEA? WHAT LINE? YUKI DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT! the last couple statements are, "yoroshiku" and "she doesn't like you bro" - pondr
;;lines 21, 23, and 26 are all designed to bring the conversation in that direction, that's what this entire conversation is about. What did you think it was about.

@chr r=mizuha_b_se_03_s
[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7090]“......”[np]

[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7091]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7091]“…………”[np]

Something seemed to be holding her back, as Shiratori didn't move a muscle.[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_03_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7237]“Oh, quit being so stubborn!”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7237]“困ったものね”[np]
;;I think you went overboard for a sort of throwaway ‘oh what are we going to do with you' lighthearted conversation ender.

Tokita shrugged.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“But hey, I'm happy for you, Shiratori.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“でも、良かったじゃないか”[np]
;;The previous line of conversation is over(which is why I think it works better with padding at the beginning)

I thought I might as well speak to her if she wouldn't speak to me.[np]
;;And because it's over, dragging it along to this line probably isn't optimal but eh, not that big of a deal

[nm t="京介"]“You finally found someone on your side, right? Someone to stick up for you.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“やっと、お前の味方ができたな?”[np]

@chr r=mizuha_a_se_06b_s
[nm t="水羽" s=miz_7092]“...Hmph.”[np]

Shiratori left for her seat.[np]
;;Grunt doesn't sound like a very moe way to describe a tsundere's hmph!

[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7238]“I'm sorry, Kyousuke... her foundation, her core, is a sweet girl.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7238]“ごめんね。根はいい子なんだけどね”[np]
;;I'd love to do something with "heart", but everything I think of ends up with either "meat" or "petals", both are just TOO sexual in the context of an eroge. And this is fine. - pondr

[nm t="京介"]“I'm more concerned with the fruit than the core.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“根より実のほうが問題だ”[np]

@chr l=yuki_b_se_01_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7239]“When she's alone with me, she's like a juicy apple.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7239]“私の前では、おいしそうな果実がなるんだけどね”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I'd eat that.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ぜひ食いたいもんだ”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Who knows?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“さあな”[np]

Tokita smiles lightly.[np]

@chr l=yuki_a_se_07b_s
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7241]“She's no good with men... well, she's no good with anyone. So like I said, be nice to her.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_7241]“あの子、男を……いえ、人を知らないから。かわいがってあげてね”[np]

Sure. I'll be nice to Satan himself if it means avenging Wagner.[np]

I gave a hearty laugh from my stomach.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“One.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“1、だ”[np]

I know the statistics here.[np]

When choosing a number between one and four, the majority of Japanese people, being reserved and modest, would pick 3.[np]

The next most popular number is two.[np]

The number one is strongly associated with being the best. As such, it has a sort of proud or overconfident impression to it, making it difficult to pick for most.[np]

On the other hand, four is too menial, and it conjures up images of death in Japanese culture. People avoid it subconsciously.[np]

Tokita will have played it safe, and doubtlessly chose three.[np]

I thought back on a newspaper article I once read.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Basically, the incident involved the school expansion project. When various organizations made bids for the project, the Director made a few under-the-table deals with a particular contractor. He took money in exchange for favorable consideration.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“要するに、この学園の、どっかの施設を拡張するんだろ? そのときに、理事長が特定の業者から金受け取ったって話だろ?”[np]

@mface name=eiichi_a_se_05b_b
[nm t="栄一" s=eii_7654]“Then shouldn't they just cuff Shiratori's dad and go for some afternoon doughnuts?”[np]
;;[nm t="栄一" s=eii_7654]“だったら、とっとと白鳥の親父をムショにぶち込めって話じゃないすか?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, y'know, bribes are generally only against the law if a government official is involved. It would've been a bribe if they had paid off the city's Public Works Deparment, but Mr. Shiratori isn't a civil servant or anything.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“まあ、なんつーの、収賄ってよー、基本、公務員にしか適用されないんだわ。今回の件なら、市の土木課かどっかの職員か? 白鳥の親父さんは、別に、公務員じゃねえだろ?”[np]

[nm t="栄一" s=eii_7655]“Uhm? Oh, yeah, I guess not. He owns a construction company, right?”[np]
;;[nm t="栄一" s=eii_7655]“え? あ、うん。建設会社の社長だろ?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Therein lies my point. Old man Shiratori can take as much money as he wants from the contractors, and the police can't do anything about it. Well, until the point it becomes fraud, I guess.”[np]

;;[nm t="栄一" s=eii_7656]“じゃあ、なんで事件になってんだよ?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Getting legal heat for accepting bribes in his situation can only mean he was in bed with some city official. He was breaking the law, and then trying to cover it up by getting his story straight with this unknown guy in City Hall.”[np]

;;[nm t="京介"]“ほら、詐欺を立証すんのはむずいっていうだろ? 同じようにさ、理事長もたしかに金はもらってたわけだな。でも、市の職員なんて知らねえってばっくれられたら、その嘘を見破るのに手間がかかると思わねえか?”[np]

The news channel was reporting on our school.[np]


The police really did arrest the vice-principal...[np]

Apparently he was the middleman between the contractors and the school.[np]

The incredible thing is that despite the vice-principal's open confession, the Director continues to deny all allegations.[np]

Then again, despite media hype, there's still no strong evidence linking the Director to City Hall.[np]

But he did take money, no doubt about it... so I guess it's natural for him to be treated with suspicion.[np]
