The next morning, I go to see Dr. Akimoto as usual.[np]
;;午前中、いつものように秋元氏のところを訪ねた。[np]

*page4|
[nm t="京介"]“I'm very sorry about last time.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“どうも、前回はすみませんでした”[np]

*page5|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7056]“Don't worry about it.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7056]“いいんだよ”[np]

*page6|
Akimoto smiles kindly.[np]
;;秋元は優しく笑う。[np]

*page7|
[nm t="京介"]“I got agitated, and I don't exactly remember what I said...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“興奮していてなにを口走ったか忘れてしまったんですが……”[np]

*page8|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7057]“I see. Like I said, it's no big deal.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7057]“そうなんだ。別にたいしたことじゃなかったよ”[np]

*page9|
Though he says that, I can't help but notice Dr. Akimoto seems a little different today.[np]
;;と言いつつ、今日の秋元氏は、いつもと様子が違った。[np]
;;With と言いつつ, if it confirms or is neutral to the previous statement, it's while, if it goes against, it's though. Just a little English for you.

*page10|
There were several thick file folders laying on his desk, and a laptop with a glowing LCD sat on his lap.[np]
;;机の上に分厚いファイルをいくつも重ね、膝の上ではノートパソコンの液晶画面が光っていた。[np]

*page11|
More prominently, though, his eyes were strained like he was a little nervous.[np]
;;なにより、目元がやや緊張したようにこわばっていた。[np]

*page12|
[nm t="京介"]“Let's put my issues aside for today...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“今日は、ちょっと僕のことは置いといて……”[np]

*page13|
Trying not to let Dr. Akimoto's aura concern me, I say,[np]
;;かまわず、おれは切り出した。[np]

*page14|
[nm t="京介"]“I'd like to consult you about my sister.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“妹のことでご相談があるんですが”[np]

*page15|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7058]“Kanon-san?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7058]“花音さんの?”[np]

*page16|
Dr. Akimoto likely knows about Kanon's current situation.[np]
;;秋元氏も現在の花音の状況は知っているだろう。[np]

*page17|
[nm t="京介"]“You don't mind, do you? She's got a lot on her shoulders these days.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“かまいませんかね? 実は、けっこう複雑な悩みをかかえているようで”[np]

*page18|
Akimoto blinks a few times, murmurs, and nods.[np]
;;秋元は瞬きを数回繰り返し、ふむ、とうなずいた。[np]

*page19|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7059]“Very well.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7059]“いいよ”[np]

*page20|
He closes his laptop.[np]
;;ノートパソコンを閉じた。[np]

*page21|
[nm t="京介"]“First, though, I'd like you to promise not to talk to anyone about this.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“その前に、このことはぜったい口外しないと約束してください”[np]

*page22|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7060]“That's in the job description.”[np]
;;lit. "it's that kind of job"
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7060]“そういう仕事だよ”[np]

*page23|
I figured...[np]
;;だろうな……。[np]

*page24|
I tell him as much as I know about Kanon's upbringing, her figure skating talent, her relationship with her mother, and how having Gonzou as a father has been for her.[np]
;;おれは花音の生い立ち、フィギュアスケートの才能、郁子さんとの兼ね合い、父としての権三についても、知っている限り詳しく話した。[np]

*page25|
Dr. Akimoto nodded a few times, taking notes every now and then.[np]
;;秋元氏は何度もうなずき、ときおりメモを取っていた。[np]

*page26|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7061]“I see. She's quite troubled.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7061]“なるほど、苦労があるようだね”[np]

*page27|
[nm t="京介"]“I think she's starved of affection.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“愛情に飢えているんだと思うんです”[np]

*page28|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7062]“If even you think that, then she must have quite the problem indeed.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7062]“京介くんから見てそう思えるんなら、どうも重症のようだ”[np]

*page29|
[nm t="京介"]“I may have grown up without a father, but I at least had a great mother.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“僕は片親になったとはいえ、母ができた人でしたから”[np]

*page30|
He nodded deeply.[np]
;;また、深くうなずいた。[np]

*page31|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7063]“Uhh, how is Ikuko-san... ‘Ex-Coach Kanesaki’... acting toward Kanon-san these days?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7063]“ええと、その、郁子さん……金崎元コーチは、花音さんに現在ではどういうふうに接しているんだい?”[np]
;;why ex? oh well, I don't care - pondr

*page32|
[nm t="京介"]“How is she acting...?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“どういうふう……?”[np]

*page33|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7064]“Is she taking her rage out on her? Is she being kind to her?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7064]“つらく当たっている? それとも優しい?”[np]

*page34|
[nm t="京介"]“She's kind... well, I guess it would be more accurate to say she's spoiling her. Kanon talks about how Ikuko-san's always bending over backwards for her every whim. I'd imagine it's always been that way between them.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“優しい……というより甘やかしていますね。いつも、へこへこしていると、花音は言っていました。きっと、いままでずっとそうだったのではないでしょうか”[np]

*page35|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7065]“Kanon-san started skating by being taught by her mother, correct?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7065]“花音さんは、お母さんの教えに従ってスケートを始めたんだよね?”[np]

*page36|
[nm t="京介"]“So it seems. I've only read books about it, but it seems Ikuko-san's coaching level isn't very high, and there were several occasions where she was nearly replaced by another coach.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“だそうです。僕も本で読んだ程度なんですが、郁子さんのコーチングはレベルの高いものではなかったらしく、これまで何度かコーチが代替わりしそうになったようなんです”[np]

*page37|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7066]“Yet she wasn't replaced until just recently. Why is that?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7066]“でも、最近までコーチは変わらなかった。それはどうして?”[np]

*page38|
[nm t="京介"]“Kanon's strong opposition to it... supposedly. But looking at their relationship, that's hard to believe.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“花音の強い希望で……ということらしいですが、あの親子を見ているとにわかには信じがたいですね”[np]

*page39|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7067]“You think Kanesaki is lying, don't you?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7067]“金崎さんが嘘をついていると君は思っているわけだね”[np]

*page40|
He tilts his head, pondering.[np]
;;考えるように首をかしげた。[np]

*page41|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7068]“Has Kanon-san ever tried to switch coaches on her own?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7068]“逆に、花音さんが、コーチを変えてくれるよう周りに働きかけたことはないの?”[np]

*page42|
[nm t="京介"]“Uh...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“それは……”[np]

*page43|
I tried to come up with something, but I couldn't put my thoughts into words.[np]
;;言葉を探したが、思い当たらなかった。[np]

*page44|
[nm t="京介"]“No, I don't think so... or if it did happen, it was covered up...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ない、ようですね……実際あっても、もみ消されたのか……”[np]

*page45|
Then again... I suppose that's unlikely.[np]
;;いや、それはないか……。[np]

*page46|
The All-Japan Figure Skating Union has been a little short with Ikuko-san recently, after all.[np]
;;日本のフィギュアスケート連合は、郁子さんに否定的だったわけだしな。[np]
;;45 seemed too vague, so the ‘after all' in this line just left me thinking "After all, what?" Added a little extra to help out.

*page47|
[nm t="京介"]“I guess what we're left with is that Kanon kept quiet about it and accepted her mother's lies...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“となると、花音は、黙って、郁子さんの嘘を受け入れたということでしょうか……”[np]

*page48|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7069]“Oh?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7069]“おや?”[np]

*page49|
Akimoto suddenly looked at the clock.[np]
;;不意に、秋元が時計を見た。[np]

*page50|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7070]“Kyousuke-kun, I believe our hour is over.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7070]“京介くん、もう一時間だよ?”[np]

*page51|
[nm t="京介"]“Huh? Already?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“え? もう?”[np]

*page52|
That was quick.[np]
;;あっという間だった。[np]

*page53|
[nm t="京介"]“Do you mind if we extend it?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“よろしければ延長していただきたいんですが?”[np]

*page54|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7071]“What?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7071]“なに?”[np]

*page55|
His usual, phony smile reverted back to a genuine expression for just a moment.[np]
;;いつも作ったような笑顔を見せる秋元が、その瞬間だけは素にもどっていた。[np]

*page56|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7072]“I'd love to, but I have an engagement with an acquaintance...”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7072]“といっても、午後から知人と約束があってね”[np]
;;the reason I added the stutter etc was because I wanted it to be clear that akimoto's caught off-guard and telling the truth, but in retrospect, it only made it look like he was lying T.T good catch. - pondr

*page57|
[nm t="京介"]“I swear, it'll only be a minute. I'll pay for the extra time, of course.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“どうか、もう少しだけ。延長した分の診察料はもちろん払いますから”[np]

*page58|
Akimoto stares into me.[np]
;;秋元はおれを見据えた。[np]

*page59|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7073]“I'm surprised. For you to say something like that...”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7073]“いや、驚いたな。君がそんなことを言い出すなんて”[np]

*page60|
[nm t="京介"]“......”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“…………”[np]

*page61|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7074]“Alright. If you want to talk, let's talk. And you don't have to pay.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7074]“いいよ。僕でよければつき合おう。ちなみにお金はけっこうだ”[np]

*page62|
[nm t="京介"]“Thank you. I really appreciate it.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“ありがとうございます”[np]

*page63|
I bow my head.[np]
;;頭を下げた。[np]

*page64|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7075]“Well then, I'll cut to the chase and give you my thoughts. But take it with a grain of salt, you hear? To give a proper medical opinion, I'd need more data, analysis, and time.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7075]“では、僕の見解を述べよう。ただ、話半分に聞いてくれよ? 正確を期すには大量のデータと、分析にあたっての時間が必要だからね”[np]

*page65|
He takes a glance at the numerous folders scattered about his desk.[np]
;;机の上の大量のファイルをちらと見た。[np]

*page66|
It looks like Dr. Akimoto had planned an important talk about me today.[np]
;;秋元氏は、今日、おれに重要な話をするつもりだったのかもしれない。[np]

*page67|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7076]“Your sister is a very kind girl.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7076]“君の妹は、とても優しい女の子だ”[np]

*page68|
He declares this with a serious look.[np]
;;真顔で言い切った。[np]

*page69|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7077]“She can't force herself to like her mother, but she wants to meet her expectations anyway.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7077]“母親を決して好きにはなれないのだけれど、期待にこたえたいとは思っている”[np]

*page70|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7078]“Skating isn't something she likes or dislikes; it's just something she does out of obligation.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7078]“スケートは、彼女のなかで、好きでも嫌いでもなく、当然続けるべき義務だ”[np]

*page71|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7079]“If she wins, her mother will be happy. On one hand, this makes her think, ‘Then I'll work harder,’ and on the other, ‘Why do I have to let myself be used by this show-off?’”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7079]“勝ち続けることで、母親が満足する。ならばもっとがんばろうと思う反面、なぜこんな見栄っ張りで自分を利用しようとする人間に協力しなければならないのかと悩んでいる”[np]

*page72|
He must have spoken too much at once, as he takes a few breaths afterwards.[np]
;;一気にしゃべって疲れたのか、腹式呼吸を繰り返した。[np]

*page73|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7080]“I can say with some degree of certainty that her act in front of the television cameras stems from her mother's influence.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7080]“花音さんが、テレビで見せたような態度を取ってしまうのは、まず母親の影響といえる”[np]

*page74|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7081]“It just goes to show that parents can ruin their children by spoiling them too much. The world makes such a fuss about child abuse, but the other side of poor parenting is much more common and equally harmful to the maturing psyche.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7081]“たとえばよく世間で虐待が騒がれるだろう? しかし、甘やかすことで子供を駄目にする親もいる。むしろそのほうがずっと多い”[np]

*page75|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7082]“People pamper others because they don't want to be hated.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7082]“人を甘やかすのは、自分が嫌われたくないという媚に起因する”[np]

*page76|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7083]“Kanesaki-san is also a former figure skater. She's spent her life worrying about how people see her. Even after retiring, she must still be trying desperately to keep up appearances.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7083]“金崎さんは、元フィギュアスケート選手でもある。人の目を意識した人生を送ってきたのだろう。引退後も周囲に働きかけて自分をよく見せようと必死だったようだ”[np]

*page77|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7084]“Imagine how a child will turn out when she grows up watching her only parent act like that. Surely you see my point, Kyousuke-kun?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7084]“そんな親の後姿を見て育った子供はどうなるか。もうわかるだろう?”[np]

*page78|
I nod deeply.[np]
;;おれは深くうなずいた。[np]

*page79|
[nm t="京介"]“She probably decided never to submit to anyone... never to admit she's wrong.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“せめて自分だけは、人に頭を下げるものかと、心に決めるでしょうね”[np]

*page80|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7085]“And she knows it's wrong to be that way. She knows, but she just can't help herself. She's lost.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7085]“一方で、そういう自分が悪いことは知っている。知っているがどうにもならなくて、途方に暮れている”[np]

*page81|
[nm t="京介"]“Akimoto-san... how can I help Kanon?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“秋元さん、おれは、そんな花音にどうすれば?”[np]

*page82|
I was honestly happy.[np]
;;おれは、率直にうれしかった。[np]

*page83|
A girl whom the world had taken to calling hopelessly selfish had just been praised as kind.[np]
;;世間ではわがままでどうしようもない子供のように扱われている花音を、優しい女の子と評してくれた。[np]

*page84|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7086]“Hehe... you're a kind person too deep down, aren't you?”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7086]“ふふ……君も優しい男だね、本当は”[np]

*page85|
What's he going on about now...?[np]
;;なんだ、いきなり……。[np]

*page86|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7087]“Confront your sister. Explain that she shouldn't act selfishly.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7087]“妹と向き合うことだ。わがままはだめだと、じっくりと説いていくんだ”[np]

*page87|
[nm t="京介"]“Alright.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“はい”[np]

*page88|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7088]“Don't say, ‘Stop being selfish or people will hate you.’ She likely despises that sort of thing.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7088]“わがままをするとお前が人に嫌われるからやめろ、と言ってはいけない。彼女はそれを大嫌いな媚だと思うだろう”[np]

*page89|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7089]“Teach her that there are better ways of making people happy than being selfish.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7089]“わがままをするよりも、もっと人を喜ばせる方法があるのだと気づかせられればいい”[np]

*page90|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7090]“That should appeal to her, seeing as how she even wants to make her mother, whom she hates, happy...”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7090]“彼女は大嫌いなはずの母親ですら、喜ばせたいと望んでいるのだから……”[np]

*page91|
Dr. Akimoto bitterly looks down at his plump stomach.[np]
;;秋元氏はまた、ふくよかな腹をつらそうに上下させていた。[np]

*page92|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7091]“...Sorry for being so abstract.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7091]“すまないね……抽象的な話ばかりで”[np]

*page93|
[nm t="京介"]“No, you've been very helpful.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“いいえ。助かりました”[np]

*page94|
I express my gratitude once again.[np]
;;もう一度、礼を言った。[np]

*page95|
[nm t="京介"]“From the looks of things, you had more important things to talk about. And here I was going on and on about Kanon...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“どうも、今日は、大事なお話があったみたいなのに、花音の話ばかりしてしまって……”[np]

*page96|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7092]“Hah, this mountain of folders? Don't worry about it. They just became useless anyway.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7092]“ああ、このファイルの山かい? いいんだよ、たったいまゴミになったから”[np]

*page97|
[nm t="京介"]“Huh?”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“え?”[np]

*page98|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7093]“Oh, I just feel that this chat has been particularly useful in my treatment of your case.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7093]“いや、今日は実りのある話ができたね”[np]

*page99|
He smiles contentedly.[np]
;;満足そうに頬を緩めた。[np]

*page100|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7094]“The data I had been collecting here was misdirected, apparently.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7094]“僕はどうも見当違いのデータを集めていたようだ”[np]

*page101|
[nm t="京介"]“But... with all those documents...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“そんな……大量の資料があるのに……”[np]

*page102|
Dr. Akimoto stands up from his chair.[np]

*page103|
[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7095]“Lo and behold, there [ font italic="true" ]are[ resetfont ] more precious things to you than time and money. That's the best news I've had in a long, long time.”[np]
;;[nm t="秋元" s=aki_7095]“君には自分の時間やお金よりも大切なものがあるのだと知れた。それが、一番の収穫だな”[np]

*page259|

;;I like this line a lot. You think maou will disappear as in evade detection, but this line lets you know he actually thinks he will disappear (i.e. the personality will. yeah, maou=kyousuke in tsubaki's and kanon's routes) - pondr
