Eiichi suddenly started a conversation the next morning.[np]

@chr r=yuki_a_se_07_b
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20118]“Yeah, my mom was Director Shiratori's mistress. And as you can imagine, having a mistress live openly in the same house with the family might cause a problem or two. Before long, every day had turned into an episode of some late-night TV drama.”[np]

;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20120]“……そうね”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“One would expect you to envy or resent her.”[np]

Tokita narrowed her eyes at that.[np]

@chr r=yuki_a_se_01b_b
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20124]“Of course you wouldn't. And that's not particular to you; no one would. Even if people were aware of the horrible lives we faced day in, day out, or that we had been thrown out of our very home, no one would pity me.”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Then it might have been your fault.”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“だったら、なにかお前に問題があったのかもな”[np]

@chr r=yuki_b_se_16_b
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20127]“That's right. That's not a cold response, either. It's merely human. People don't lend their hearts to those who do nothing but complain about their misfortunes.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20127]“そうでしょう。その反応はあなたが冷たいからじゃない。ごく一般的なものよ。理由もなく不幸を語る人間に、人は心を許さない”[np]

[nm t="京介"]“Well, but that doesn't stop people from trying. Plenty of people out there just beg for sympathy by talking about their rough lives...”[np]
;;[nm t="京介"]“まあよく、不幸や失敗談を話して同情を買おうとするヤツはいるが……”[np]

@chr r=yuki_b_se_16b_b
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20128]“It has the opposite effect. People generally believe that the world is just. It's unsettling to think that misery can be doled out to saints as easily as sinners. Thus, people cope with this by assuming those who have led miserable lives have done something to deserve it.”[np]
;;[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20128]“ぜんぜん逆効果よ。人間には『公正な世界の信念』というものがあるわ。誰もが理不尽な不幸なんて簡単には訪れないと思ってる。だから、理由もなく不幸に見舞われた人のことは、能力が劣っているからそんな目にあったのだと思ってしまう”[np]

...What kind of life has this woman led?[np]

I'd ask, but it doesn't look like she'd be willing to talk about it.[np]

I obviously can't be certain, but it seems Tokita is doting on Shiratori after suffering through some complicated issue in the past.[np]

@chr r=yuki_b_se_04_b
[nm t="ユキ" s=yuk_20129]“Hehe... well then, I wonder how Mizuha will fare today...?”[np]

After calling Miki-chan, Gonzou, and a few other business associates, I laid down on my bed.[np]

I thought back on the day.[np]

Most of my thoughts are obviously centered on Shiratori.[np]

...She wants me to be her boyfriend.[np]
;;"dating" is more casual to some people than all this thought he's putting in. I call "dating" what in the old days they called "going steady", but a lot of people think "dating" just means hanging out regularly. - pondr

‘To be a boyfriend...’[np]
;;To be a boyfriend... seems more appropriate. ~ Newbie

I can't say I fully understand the meaning of that phrase.[np]

Does it mean ‘to fall in love with someone, and become emotionally involved’?[np]

It may even include ‘to take the steps necessary to become a husband and father’――well, there aren't many people who think that far ahead, so I'd wager that's not part of its popular use.[np]

But either way, people date because it has some merit for them.[np]

Be it because they're aiming for their partner's assets, or to fulfill their own desires... there's something they're getting out of it.[np]

So, if I was to date Shiratori, there would have to be some merit in it for me.[np]

What is there to gain from dating Shiratori...?[np]

Naturally, it would have to be something only Shiratori could provide.[np]

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

This train of thought is incredibly out of character, and frankly, stupid.[np]

It's vain to try to explain something as intangible and abstract as emotion with logic. Of course, that doesn't stop Tokita from having a blast doing just that.[np]
