Tsubaki obediently nodded.[np]

Since Tsubaki seemed so eager to come today, I think I'll ask her to help more often.[np]

Then again, I think she'd probably just agree to anything I asked of her.[np]

After our late lunch, something was bugging me.[np]
;;Late: It's at least 2:00. She came over "in the afternoon" and spent two hours working. Add to that travel time and the fact that she probably didn't come over right at 12:00 and you have yourself a late lunch. 

@chr c=tubaki_a_sic_04_b

;;[nm t="椿姫" s=tub_2349]“おいしかったね、楽しかったねっ”[np]

Tsubaki had been looking delightedly at a baby in the seat behind me the whole time.[np]

The thing that's bothering me is the change in my frame of mind...[np]

...It'd be an entirely different situation if she just expected me to pay as the man in this relationship, but she's more than happy to go Dutch.[np]
;;I guess that's what he means... - pondr
;;the implication is supposed to be like ‘if she were blah blah blah, then like, the selfishness would probably prevent him from feeling that it would be ‘alright' to pay for it, which means he wouldn't have to be confronted with what is apparently a change in his attitude. Coming to that conclusion based on the present English would have been a miracle, huh.

It kinda makes me wonder what would happen if I decided to pick up her check.[np]

‘Then I'd be out 600 yen. Big whoop...’ I was surprised with myself for thinking along these lines.[np]

;;[nm t="京介"]“……もしもし……うん……”[np]

I immediately covered my mouth with my hand to muffle my conversation.[np]

As I talked, I used my gaze and my hand to direct Tsubaki.[np]

To stop her from hearing the call, I intentionally pulled away from her.[np]

And I'm even going to Tsubaki's house soon.[np]

Is it okay to spend time on things like this?[np]

I might be going out with her right now, but what can I stand to gain from such a relationship?[np]

From an economic perspective, spending money on having fun is a cost with no benefit.[np]

Even so, I'll be joining that family for dinner again tonight.[np]

I guess I could just think of it as a way to dispel stress.[np]

Back in the days when I wandered with Mom.[np]

That scar was from a box cutter, after a bunch of heartless demons cornered me on the streets.[np]
;;I'd change this line. Just follow the same template that he was bullied by a bunch of heartless demons and it's a scar from a box cutter from that time. I think the current phrasing not only makes demon kind of stand out as awkward since it's not in a good position to act as a natural word for well, a bastard or whatever, but also, ‘interested in bullying children' just sounds kind of stupid. Like what, is it your hobby?

[nm t="京介"]“Can you keep this a secret from your sister?”[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7156]“Why~?”[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7157]“Okay, got it~.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7157]“わかったー”[np]

It was natural for an underprivileged kid like me to be bullied. At the time, I didn't feel any anger, or any sadness.[np]

It's not even a big scar. If Tsubaki found out about it, she'd start worrying over nothing.[np]

[nm t="広明" s=hir_7158]“Your back is so wide, Onii-chan~.”[np]
;;[nm t="広明" s=hir_7158]“お兄ちゃんの背中、おっきいねー”[np]

Tsubaki always seems to be thinking of me.[np]

After my quiet answer, she scurried off to the kitchen, leaving only her footsteps to break the tranquility of the evening.[np]

I've been taking things really leisurely, recently...[np]

And I don't know why, but my head hasn't hurt at all in the past two days.[np]

;;Not sure if I like making him say something that blunt and strong though. The original is just the start of a sentence that we have no idea what he has was going to say. In fact, trying to come up with specifics on to what he meant is kind of against the point, since it's ‘meaningless and nonsensical sleeptalk' after all. He started mumbling but never actually ended up saying anything concrete, his following sentence is just an explanation for what he meant, or what was on his mind. The ‘no' there is probably unnecessary. The いや there is more like an "oh". Like "Oh, I was just thinking" or something like that.
