My parched throat ached.[np]

The smell of sweat assaulted me.[np]

My back felt the soft caress of my bed.[np]

...And my eyes opened to a familiar ceiling.[np]

I knock into something as I reach out my hand for water.[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7437]“Oww...!”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7437]“いでっ……!”[np]

The texture of Kanon's hair greeted my hand as it fumbled around.[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7438]“Ah, Nii-san, you're awake?”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7438]“あ、兄さん、起きたー?”[np]

Kanon had been sleeping seated on the floor, laying her head and arms on the bed beside me.[np]

I suddenly understood the situation.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I'm so sorry!”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“すまん!”[np]

I leaped out of bed and checked the time.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“You have to be at the short program today, right!?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“お前、今日、ショートプログラム本番だろ!?”[np]

Even so, Kanon only made a lazy, absentminded sound.[np]

@chr c=kanon_a_si_06_b
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7439]“Mm, I'll be on my way.”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Are you going to be late?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“時間はだいじょうぶか?”[np]
;Kanon's first idea was that she wants Kyousuke to stay home so yeah this needed to be switched up.

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7440]“Well, later than they want me there, but it'll work out.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7440]“集合時間には遅れてるけど、まあなんとかする”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“‘It'll work out...?’ But it's the Grand Prix Finals. Tons of really important people will be there, won't they?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんとかするって……グランドシリーズのファイナルだぞ? 外国からもいろんなお偉いさんが来てるんじゃないか?”[np]

;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7441]“のんちゃんは人気者だからみんな大目に見てくれる”[np]

I'm sure they'd have their hands full trying to lecture someone that arrogant anyway.[np]

She had gone out and bought me a water bottle and some aspirin.[np]

Warmth from a hot-water bag, which I know I didn't have here yesterday, seeps into my feet.[np]

The cold, wet towel on my forehead tells me that Kanon took care of me through the whole night.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Alright, I'll drive you there.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“とにかく、車を出す”[np]

@chr c=kanon_a_si_04_b

[nm t="京介"]“I'm fine, just get ready.”[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7443]“I'll just take a taxi.”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Shut your mouth and hurry it up!”[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7445]“Alright, I get it. Thanks.”[np]

In truth, though, I should be the one to thank her.[np]

Kanon interrupted me.[np]

@chr l=kanon_b_sic_02c_s
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7449]“Who cares? I just thought it'd be a pain to meet those bigshots. It's not my job to suck up to people outside the rink.”[np]

Ikuko-san smiled wide.[np]

@chr r=ikuko_a_06b_s
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7027]“...K-Kanon-chan, I had no idea. I'm so sorry... why didn't you tell me you were that opposed to it?”[np]

Kanon answered gravely.[np]

@dellay pos=l

Indeed, it wasn't a lie.[np]

But that wasn't the problem...[np]

Kanon and Ikuko-san vanished into the arena before I had time to explain.[np]

Shit... I just got Kanon into so much trouble.[np]

I considered my options before being swallowed by waves of repentance.[np]

At some point in the afternoon, I received word from Horibe while waiting for Tokita.[np]

[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7090]“I'm sorry, Son!”[np]
;;[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7090]“坊っちゃん、すみません!”[np]

[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7091]“So, this morning...”[np]
;;[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7091]“実は、今日の朝方……”[np]

Horibe's report boiled my blood.[np]

Saijou's babbling pushed his guards over the edge, and they beat him to death.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What the fuck were they thinking...?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“なんてことを……”[np]

We'd finally captured ‘Maou's’ accomplice.[np]

But with this, we've lost our only lead.[np]

Kanon... she'll be...[np]

[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7092]“I'm prepared to make this up to you as a man in the business.”[np]
;;[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7092]“てまえも、おとしまえはつけさせていただきます”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Then take that ‘official apology’ bullshit and shove it up your ass where it belongs!!!”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そんなもんはいらん!!!”[np]

I can't help but get angry as Kanon's face crosses my mind.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“...Sorry... look, let's just focus on what to do from here on out.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“……そんなことより、これからどうするかを考えるべきです”[np]

[nm t="堀部" s=hor_7093]“...To be quite honest, Son, I'm surprised. A little French and you're already thinking rationally again...”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I'm sorry for lashing out at you. Anyway, I'll contact you again soon.”[np]

;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_9821]“ユキは来ないそうです。もうお役に立てることはないでしょうと、言っていました”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“What we do know is that ‘Maou’ has his eyes set on Ikuko-san. I'll have men sent to protect her at the arena.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ひとまず、"魔王"が郁子さんを狙っていることはたしかだ。おれはこれから人をかき集めて会場の警護をする”[np]

@chr c=haru_b_se_15b_s
[nm t="ハル" s=har_9823]“Hmm...”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_9823]“ふむ……”[np]

Usami shook her head uncertainly.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“I know. The arena already has a sanctioned security force. If we try to take matters into our own hands, the two groups might just get in each other's ways.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“わかってる。会場にはきちんとした警備員もいる。おれたちが動いても、かえって邪魔になるかもしれない”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_9824]“We're walking on pins and needles, now.”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_9824]“いてもたってもいられないご様子ですね”[np]

;;[nm t="京介"]“"魔王"は花音を敗退させたいわけだろう? だとしたら実力行使に及ぶかもしれん”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_9825]“You mean he might directly injure Kanon?”[np]
;;[nm t="ハル" s=har_9825]“花音に怪我を負わせるような?”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“We can't eliminate the possibility, can we?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ありえないとは言い切れないだろう?”[np]

[nm t="ハル" s=har_9826]“I suppose we can't. Still, there's something I want to try on my own.”[np]

Even though the sun still hadn't set, a profuse number of people had gathered in the seating area of the arena.[np]

I used my position as Kanon's brother to make my way into a special staff-only passage.[np]

I needed to call Ikuko-san out of her meeting.[np]

Come to think of it, Ikuko-san isn't Kanon's official coach.[np]

That would normally just make her a standard guest, but perhaps she's being allowed in as staff due to her role in supporting Kanon up until now.[np]

Who knows? Maybe she even used some sort of connection with the tournament directors.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“It's nothing to worry about. Are you busy at the moment?”[np]

@chr c=ikuko_a_06_b
[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7029]“Not particularly. Kanon-chan's in a bad mood right now, being a little snappish to everyone. It's unbecoming after coming in late to an international competition...”[np]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7029]“いいのよ。いま花音ちゃんも機嫌が悪くてね。とりつく島もない状態なのよ。自分が遅刻したのにねえ”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Hah... well, I'm sorry to hear that.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“はあ……お疲れ様です”[np]
;;was this an attempt at using the Japanese to change the line by editing and blowing it or is it a coincidence that the change just happens to look like a translation error? お疲れ様です is a word you use on someone after they just did some kind of work or something.(IE, she had her handful with Kanon so he says this to her)
;;it was a coincidence. changed so that you needn't worry about people thinking it's a mistl. - pondr

First thing out of her mouth is a complaint...?[np]

[nm t="京介"]“So, uh... anything strange going on?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ええと……なにか、変わったことは?”[np]

@chr c=ikuko_a_08_b

A jeer leaked out.[np]

;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7033]“ああ、ごめんなさいね。京介くんには関係のないことね”[np]

Her face relaxed, but a harshness lingered for a moment in her eyes.[np]

As if to plead, ‘You make sure to go give him an earful for me too, Kyousuke-kun.’[np]

One would usually jump to this conclusion.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“No, no, definitely not...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“いいえ、まさか……”[np]

If I make one little mistake with my word choice, she may advertise the problem to everyone around her.[np]

[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7036]“It's a little odd, though. That man would go to any lengths for Kanon-chan. If it was for me, he wouldn't lift a finger... at least, that's the way I see it.”[np]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7036]“でも変よねえ、あの人は花音ちゃんのためなら動くでしょうけど、私のためになにかするようなことはないと思うんだけれど……”[np]

Kanon will be crushed if Ikuko-san is killed.[np]

Anyone could tell this mother and her daughter aren't getting along well, but she's still her mother.[np]

[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7037]“Maybe the bodyguards have been called here for me.”[np]
;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7037]“ひょっとして、私のボディーガードでもしてくれているのかしら?”[np]

This is bad. I probably should have just let sleeping dogs lie.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, I'm sure it's nothing. I wouldn't worry about it.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“まあ、あまり気にされなくてもいいのでは?”[np]

A man with a camera on his shoulder.[np]

An armband bearing the message ‘Camera Allowed’ swung loosely from his jacket sleeve.[np]

[nm t="記者" s=ki0_7000]“Hello there! You're coach Kanesaki Ikuko, right?”[np]
;;[nm t="記者" s=ki0_7000]“どうも、金崎郁子コーチですよね?”[np]

He's probably a reporter from a magazine.[np]

The man bowed his head and shot Ikuko-san a flattering glance.[np]

[nm t="記者" s=ki0_7001]“Would you mind talking for a bit?”[np]

;;[nm t="郁子" s=yuu_7039]“ええ、かまいませんよ。私でいいんですか?”[np]

She put on a steady smile, as if changing into another person.[np]

The man told her his name and the magazine he worked for.[np]

It was hardly a publisher worth noting.[np]

They're known for publishing racy books about celebrity scandals and yakuza.[np]

[nm t="記者" s=ki0_7002]“In fact, we were looking to invite you to write a book.”[np]

;;note this means raised her as an athlete not daughter(it doesn't really matter it just kind of caught my attention)
;;not quite the same, but closer. - pondr

The reporter smiled with glaring teeth.[np]

Ikuko-san's attitude was resolute, but she couldn't hide the nervous smile pulling at the corners of her mouth.[np]

...I had better leave this place.[np]

I just can't bring myself to like this woman.[np]

Time flows on, and the arena is still.[np]

A number of skilled foreign skaters came out on the ice and were bathed in applause.[np]

Eight P.M. rolled around.[np]

The last group of competitors took to the ice for a warm-up.[np]

The arena thundered loudly with applause as they skated into the rink.[np]

It seemed the audience went crazy every time Kanon stuck a dynamic jump.[np]

I was on edge.[np]

‘Maou's’ trap aside, I was worried about Kanon's health.[np]

She hardly slept for taking care of me.[np]

Can she perform up to snuff when not at the top of her game?[np]

As I pondered this, I took a call from Usami.[np]

Time simply passed by, and the growing sense of impatience within me seemed too crushing to endure.[np]

The situation turned out for the best, contrary to my earlier expectations.[np]

Nothing had come to pass.[np]

If I had to report something, it'd be that Kanon dished out another fantastic score.[np]

I almost collapsed from relief upon seeing Kanon standing safely at the arena's entrance. You'd have thought that my fever came back with a vengeance or something.[np]

No harm had come to Ikuko-san either.[np]

There was no problem at all.[np]

Kanon watched the interview with me, and commented on her television self.[np]

Judging by the video alone, Kanon seems like a mature adult woman.[np]

After Kanon, Seta Makiko came up to speak. Her petite, charming frame suited televised interviews nicely.[np]
;;line before sounded like Kanon was small and charming. I reckon Japanese wasn't used as in "from Japan" but "like something from Japan", but since I wasn't sure, I figured I'd avoid stating the obvious by dropping it after moving Seta to the front of the line. - pondr

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7488]“Hmm, I just can't figure out why she'd say that, though. Maybe because Non-chan wasn't happy and was ignoring her, she needed Non-chan's attention.”[np]

Kanon's face suddenly took on a ghostly pallor.[np]

It was a face of anger, a face of despair; a face that overwhelmed me entirely.[np]

The girl before me is a girl who lives for skating.[np]

Kanon always corners herself into that role, it seems.[np]

[nm t="京介"]“So the truth is, you don't like skating...?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“好きじゃないのか、本当はスケートが……?”[np]

@chr r=kanon_a_si_02_b
Kanon's eyes are filled with hatred.[np]

@chr r=kanon_c_si_02b_b
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7501]“It's not a matter of whether I like it or not. I have to.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7501]“好きとか嫌いとかじゃなくて、やるしかないの”[np]

She stares at me without any movement whatsoever.[np]

@chr r=kanon_c_si_02_b
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7502]“This conversation's over.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7502]“この話はおしまい”[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7503]“Tomorrow's the free skate.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7503]“明日はフリー”[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7504]“And I'll win.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7504]“ただ、勝つ”[np]
;"I'll just win.’

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7505]“That's all.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7505]“それだけ”[np]

She lays her words on me syllable-by-syllable, trying desperately to suppress her pain.[np]

@chr r=kanon_a_si_05_b
[nm t="花音" s=kan_7506]“Oh, and Nii-san... please don't talk about silly things like this ever again.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7506]“兄さん、もう、よけいなこといわないでね”[np]

She continued in a soft-hearted whisper.[np]

[nm t="花音" s=kan_7507]“[ font italic="true" ]You're[ resetfont ] the wrong one here, Nii-san, not Non-chan.”[np]
;;[nm t="花音" s=kan_7507]“兄さんが悪い。のんちゃんは悪くない”[np]

Although her ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ may not have been playing, Kanon was no longer in my room, but upon the ice.[np]

She's only my sister in name.[np]

This moment has forced me to take a good, hard look at the girl I've ignored until now.[np]

I felt that she was pitiful.[np]

Me, of all people, feeling pity――[np]

And the chronic headache which had plagued me for so long left, as if it had never even been there.[np]
