June 6 (continued)

(dorm cafeteria)
Yuki: After all, Dora-chan's curry is delicious.
(Yuki: But it's an obstacle that there's nothing but curry.)
Joker: Hey, Yuki-kun. First, congratulations on your first round win.
Yuki: Yes, thank you!
Joker: I'm glad you won. Honestly, I thought the combo of you and Hayato might be eliminated in the first round.
Joker: After all, was that your luck too?
Yuki: Maybe. I don't feel that I got through it with my own strength.
Joker: Does it matter? Luck is one of your strengths too.
Joker: But well, you'll be fine if you leave the second round to Hayato.
Joker: Hayato is stupidly strong.
Yuki: Is he that strong even from your point of view?
Joker: He's strong. In hand-to-hand combat, he hardly ever loses, right?
Yuki: But you beat him, didn't you, Joker-san?
Joker: Oh... that. Did you hear about it from Hayato?
Yuki: Yes. That's why he really respects you, he said.
Joker: Hmm, I see. So Hayato said that...
Yuki: Joker-san?
Joker: Well, there's many factors to a match.
Joker: You ended up beating me just by luck, and I have lots of ways to beat Hayato.
Yuki: How did you beat him? Or rather, what kind of contest was it?
Yuki: I asked Chiba-san but he wouldn't tell me.
Joker: You want to know?
Yuki: I want to know!!
Joker: Hmm.
Joker: Then I'm not telling you.
Yuki: Wha!? Don't say that, please tell me.
Joker: Nope.
Joker: Why should I have to tell you something like that? There's nothing in it for me.
Yuki: Well, that's true, but...
Joker: If you want to know, then entertain me. If you do a good job, then I'll tell you.
Yuki: Entertain you... how?
Joker: Figure that out yourself.
Yuki: Ugh. Joker-san, you're so mean...
Joker: By the way, where is Hayato? He's not with you?
Yuki: He's still practicing in the martial arts hall. I was watching, but I got hungry during.
Joker: That's because Hayato is diligent.
Joker: He's captain, and it seems he's fired up to win nationals this year.
Yuki: Fired up...
(Yuki: He is right, but...)
(Yuki: Only Joker-san would say that about Chiba-san being so serious.)
(Yuki: Hm? Still...)
Yuki: Come to think of it, why is Chiba-san, a second year, the captain? Because he's in Durak?
Joker: It has nothing to do with Durak.
Yuki: But, isn't a third year normally the captain?
Joker: Says the first year student council president?
Yuki: Well, that's true...
Joker: Well, the reason is simple. Because everyone chose Hayato to be the captain.
Yuki: I see. Because Chiba-san is strong.
Joker: Right, right. Hayato is keeping the current kendo club together.
Yuki: Really?
Joker: Yep. Last year, our kendo club undisputably got stronger.
Joker: They came in second in the team division in the inter-high. And they also won other national competitions.
Joker: But, that was because they had strong sempais who graduated last year.
Yuki: Sempais... they were third years last year?
Joker: Right.
Joker: In the team competition, it was four of the usual third years, and the first year, Hayato.
Yuki: Even though he was a first year, he represented them in the team competition!? That's amazing!!
Joker: That's right.
Joker: But, this year, the situation is different.
Joker: The third year members that were representing them are all gone, and all the remaining members apart from Hayato are pretty iffy.
Joker: In the present kendo club, everyone except Hayato only started kendo when they entered the school.
Joker: Well, at best, they did it in a middle school club.
Yuki: I see.
Joker: Most are athletic students, so it's not like they're totally weak.
Joker: But right now it's questionable whether they'll be able to squeak in to the national competition or not.
Joker: It's really impossible for them to win nationals.
Yuki: But Chiba-san is strong, isn't he?
Joker: Yeah.
Joker: That's why the sempais who graduated made Hayato, who was still a first year, captain.
Joker: And all the current members of the kendo club accept Hayato.
Joker: You could even say they look up to him.
Joker: That's why there's no one who complains that Hayato is the captain, even though he's a second year or whatever.
Yuki: You mean that everyone recognizes his strength.
Joker: That and his seriousness.
Yuki: I understand. It's also the first time I've seen someone so serious about kendo.
Joker: Right, right. Since he does it that seriously, it's ridiculous to be envious.
Joker: Or rather, it seem the present kendo club members all have a fair bit of trust in Hayato.
Joker: And Hayato feels that too.
Joker: Everyone has a lot of expectations of him and it's unexpectedly strengthened his sense of responsibility.
Joker: He can't leave that sort of thing alone.
Yuki: So that's it...
Joker: What? Is it that surprising?
Yuki: Yes... I thought Chiba-san was more the type who goes his own way.
Yuki: I didn't know he cared like that about the kendo club.
Joker: That's what makes Hayato a very good captain.
Yuki: I see.
(Yuki: That's true, even on Sunday...)

kendo club member: Captain, good job today.
kendo club member: See you, Ace. Take care of the captain.

(Yuki: Everyone was smiling as they saw Chiba-san off.)
(Yuki: Everyone in the kendo club seemed to get along and it was a nice mood.)
(Yuki: Maybe that's because Chiba-san is a captain everyone trusts.)
(Yuki: That's... kind of nice.)

Dora-chan: Yuki-kun, Joker-kun. Perfect timing.
Yuki: Dora-chan.
Yuki: Huh? What's that you have?
Yuki: A plastic bag?
Dora-chan: Here you go. Yuki-kun, a present. I am giving it to you.
Yuki: Ah, thanks...
Yuki: Uwah!! W, what!? What is this!? Bugs!?
Yuki: They're shaped like black almonds and they're rustling!!
Yuki: N, n, no way, are these... roa...[note!]Yuki is about to say 'roaches' here. :3
Dora-chan: Yes. It is fireflies.
Yuki: Huh? Fireflies?
Dora-chan: Japanese people love these. Everyone likes them so much they go out and catch them.
Yuki: Huh? Catch?
Joker: Oh, firefly catching, huh. That really is an amazing event.
Dora-chan: Yes. It is even very hard for ninjas in training.
Dora-chan: I heard they grab fireflies hidden in the darkness, relying just on the faint light.
Yuki: Huh? Huh?
(Yuki: That's completely wrong though, I think...)
Joker: Right, right. Dora-chan, you really are an expert on Japan. You know a lot.
(Yuki: ...Joker-san...)
Joker: But, as for me, speaking of fireflies reminds me of Hayato.
Yuki: Chiba-san?
Joker: Yeah. Hayato.
Dora-chan: Do samurai do that training too?
Joker: Of course they do. Only samurais who've accomplished it acquire secret arts as the fruit of studying even by the light of fireflies reflected on snow.
Dora-chan: Secret arts! Amazing!!!!
(Yuki: ...Aaaaaaah...)
Joker: It's common knowledge among the Japanese. Isn't it, Yuki-kun?
Yuki: Huh!? Wait a minute, please don't put it on me.
Joker: Come to think of it, Hayato should be coming back right about now.
Joker: I know! I have a good idea.
Joker: You ambush Hayato on his way back to the school.
Yuki: Ambush?
Joker: Right. Hide yourself and when Hayato gets close, release the fireflies.
Joker: Gently.
Joker: I'm sure it will be an interesting scene.
Dora-chan: He will use his secret arts!!!! I want to see it too!!!
Joker: Mm, Hayato is still in training, so I think secret arts are little beyond him.
Dora-chan: ...Really...?
Yuki: Never mind the secret arts, I'm sure it will be beautiful with this many fireflies all glowing at once.
Yuki: Come to think of it, I've never seen fireflies glowing in real life.
Joker: Then it's even better.
Joker: It will be the perfect surprise for Hayato.
Joker: I guarantee it.
Joker: I'm sure you'll be able to see something interesting.
Yuki: Yes! I'll try it!
Joker: Yeah, yeah.
Joker: Go for it.

(school path)
Yuki: Oh, they glowed.
Yuki: It's so pretty. The fireflies glowing like this.
Yuki: I've seen them on TV, but the real thing is much nicer.
(Yuki: I wonder if it will make Chiba-san happy to see this.)
Yuki: I hope it makes him happy.
school cat: Meow.
Yuki: Oh, a cat.
Yuki: You're so cute. Come here, come here.
school cat: Meow.
Yuki: I guess I don't have anything as cat food... Kuya-san always walks around with cat food...
school cat: Meow♪
Yuki: Uwah!? Wait, don't! The fireflies aren't toys!
school cat: Meow! Meow!
Yuki: Oh, shoot! He took it!! Give back the bag!
school cat: Meooow!
Yuki: Ah!
Yuki: Ah... they escaped...
??: Uwaaaaaaah!!
Yuki: Huh!? What?

CG: Chiba with fireflies
Chiba: Ee, eeek...
Yuki: Chiba-san!?
(Yuki: Why is he so startled...?)
Chiba: S, s, sp, sp, spirits...
Chiba: Uwaaaaah!! Get away! Get away from me!!
(Yuki: No way... is he mistaking the fireflies for spirits?)
Chiba: Get awaaaaay!!
Yuki: ...No way...
(Yuki: No way, right? Chiba-san is...)
Chiba: S... sto... stop...! Get away... get away...
Yuki: Oh!
(Yuki: Come to think of it...)

Yuki: Wait... so after all, Chiba-san's bad with scary stories?
Sonoda: He's beyond the level of bad with.
Sonoda: Hayato really can't handle that topic.

(Yuki: I forgot!!!!)
Yuki: ...Huh?
(Yuki: No way... he passed out...!?)
Yuki: Chiba-san! Hang in there!! These aren't spirits! They're just fireflies!!
Yuki: Chiba-saaan!! Please get a grip!!!
(Yuki: Whoa, he's seriously passed out.)
end CG

Yuki: Chiba-san! Chiba-san!!
Chiba: Ugh...
Yuki: Thank goodness! You came to!!
Chiba: Asahina? Just what is myself...?
Yuki: You passed out! You mistook fireflies for spirits...
Chiba: S, spirits!?
Yuki: Oh!
Yuki: You don't have to be scared, it's okay! There's no spirits!!
Chiba: Scared...
Chiba: N, no. Myself... is not scared...
Chiba: S, spirits... d, d, don't... scare me! I'm not such a coward...
Yuki: Ah...
Chiba: It's true!!!!
Yuki: Right...
Yuki: Um... I'm sorry. It was my fault.
Chiba: ...What does that mean?
Yuki: I brought the fireflies from before.
Yuki: I wanted to show them to you...
Chiba: Fireflies?
Yuki: Yes... The fireflies were pretty and I thought you might like them, so...
Yuki: I thought it would be nice to make you happy with something like a surprise present...
Yuki: It's true! I didn't mean to scare you!!
Chiba: Fireflies...
Yuki: Chiba-san?
Chiba: Urgh... Defeated...!
Yuki: Oh...
(Yuki: Uwah... Chiba-san is bright red.)
Chiba: I can't believe I was beaten by the likes of fireflies...
Chiba: Myself is so inexperienced...
Yuki: ...
Yuki: Th, that's not true! You were just startled, Chiba-san!
Chiba: But they were fireflies!
Chiba: Frightened by mere tiny bugs, myself even passed out...
Chiba: It's pathetic!!
Chiba: It's so weak... Embarrassing...
Yuki: Oh no...
(Yuki: Wah... He's insanely depressed...)
(Yuki: Oh, geez! Why did the fireflies end up getting released?)
Yuki: Joker-san...
(Yuki: He definitely knew this would happen!!!)
Chiba: Joker-sama?
Yuki: Oh...
Chiba: What did he do?
Yuki: Um... Joker-san told me, why don't I show you the fireflies.
Yuki: And so...
Chiba: So that was it...
Chiba: Urk...! So shameful!
Chiba: Even though Joker-sama arranged this training for me...
Yuki: Excuse me?
Chiba: Still, I betrayed his expectations and disgraced myself like this again...
Yuki: Um... Chiba-san?
Chiba: He always does this.
Chiba: He gives me training by telling myself scary stories and such.
Chiba: But myself always becomes frightened!
Chiba: No matter how ugly I show myself, he always always forgives me with a laugh.
Chiba: But he doesn't give up and tries to train me...
Yuki: Wait...

Joker: It will be the perfect surprise for Hayato.
Joker: I guarantee it.
Joker: I'm sure you'll be able to see something interesting.

(Yuki: Absolutely not! That's not training!!)
(Yuki: He even purposely called Okaken and had him tell a scary story.)
(Yuki: How is that training?)
(Yuki: But...)
Chiba: Myself can't apologize to him enough!!
(Yuki: ...I can't say it.)
(Yuki: I can't tell Chiba-san it's really not.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san who trusts Joker-san so much...)
Chiba: Damnit. Why is myself so pathetic!!?
Yuki: U, um.
Yuki: Ch, Chiba-san. You don't have to worry about it so much, it's okay.
Yuki: It's natural for anyone to be scared of ghosts and monsters.
Chiba: Ugh...
(Yuki: Oh. He's freaking out.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san really can't deal with this stuff.)
Yuki: It's okay. There's really no such thing as ghosts.
Chiba: No. There are.
Yuki: There are?
Chiba: That's right. There really are ghosts.
Yuki: No, Chiba-san... I know you're scared, but...
Chiba: Myself has seen them.
Yuki: Huh?
Yuki: You've seen a ghost...?
Chiba: Right.
Yuki: Uh...
(Yuki: No way, is Chiba-san a psychic boy!?)
(Yuki: That's surprising...)
Yuki: Um, do you see any now?
Chiba: No. Not any more.
Chiba: But, I saw them when I was a child.
Chiba: That's how I know they exist.
Yuki: They exist?
Chiba: Yes. There was one.
Yuki: ...What was it like?
Chiba: It's hard to explain.
Chiba: It wasn't that big. About this size.
Yuki: About fifteen centimeters, huh.
Chiba: It was white with big eyes.
(Yuki: What's he doing, suddenly kneeling...?)
(Yuki: Oh. He's drawing on the ground.)

CG: drawing of ghost
Chiba: Like this.
(Yuki: Ugh...)
(Yuki: He saw... this?)
(Yuki: It's kind of a bad drawing, but it's a little freaky...)
Yuki: I, it's kind of cute.
Yuki: Haha. Pale, with big eyes.
Chiba: More than pale, pure white.
Yuki: Pure white.
Chiba: And it had no eyes.
Chiba: But where its eyes should be, it had two large holes, gaping and empty.
Yuki: ...
(Yuki: He's kind of scaring me...)
Yuki: Well, um... where did you see it?
Chiba: In a house... I think was.
Yuki: In a house...?
Chiba: From the shadows of pillars and from under desks, they stared at myself.
Chiba: Several glances, staring.
Yuki: There were a lot of them?
Chiba: Countless.
Chiba: Wherever I looked, they were there.
Chiba: Staring at me.
Yuki: B, but! You don't see them now, right!?
Chiba: I don't.
Yuki: Then it's the same as if they don't exist.
Yuki: It's possible they've already left you.
Yuki: Maybe that's why you don't see them anymore!!
Chiba: But I can sense their presence even now.
Yuki: Ugh.
Chiba: But still, I can't see them.
Chiba: So I can't escape.
Yuki: Chiba-san, that's...

...A joke, right?
Disturbingly realistic and scary.

(decision: Disturbingly realistic and scary.)
(Yuki: 'I can't see them, but I feel they're there.')
(Yuki: 'That's the sense I get'...)
Yuki: ...Crap.
Chiba: What is it?
Yuki: Even I've kind of gotten scared...
Yuki: Listening to your story, it's disturbingly realistic...
Chiba: ...
Yuki: ...
Chiba: ...Hey.
Yuki: Wh, what is it?
Chiba: Say something.
Yuki: Something, um...
Yuki: Um, first of all, can I erase this picture? It's bothering me being there.
Chiba: Yeah.
end CG

Yuki: Phew... I've calmed down a little.
Yuki: I see... So you've seen ghosts, Chiba-san.
Chiba: ...Asahina.
Yuki: What is it?
Chiba: Do you believe my story?
Yuki: Well...
Yuki: I don't have psychic abilities or anything, so I honestly don't really know if there are ghosts or not...
Yuki: But I think you're not the kind of person to tell lies.
Chiba: Then... Does that mean you believe what myself is saying?
Yuki: Yes.
Yuki: Joker-san believed it too, didn't he?
Chiba: No...
Chiba: I haven't told him.
Chiba: It's too pathetic, being afraid of ghosts...
Chiba: I really can't tell him this.
Yuki: I see.
Chiba: Someone so weak is not qualified to protect him.
Yuki: I think you're wrong!
Yuki: I don't think Joker-san feels that way...
Yuki: That's the feeling I get.
Chiba: ...
Yuki: What's the matter?
Chiba: You're trying to console me.
Yuki: No. It's not consoling or anything.
Chiba: ...It's fine.
Chiba: Anyway, the truth is myself is scared.
Chiba: On top of that, I was scared of fireflies, and even passed out...
Chiba: It's pathetic...
Yuki: Oh...
(Yuki: No good. He's so depressed that no matter what I say...)
(Yuki: I wish I could say something that Chiba-san could accept.)
Chiba: Let's go back.
Yuki: Right. Staying here doesn't help.
Chiba: Before that, one thing... well..
Yuki: What is it?
Chiba: ...
Yuki: ...?
Chiba: Please!
Yuki: Yes?
Chiba: Don't tell anyone what you saw today...!
Chiba: If everyone knew I had been so shameful, myself would...
Chiba: I know I have no right to ask this of you.
Chiba: But...
Yuki: I won't tell.
Chiba: ...
Yuki: I absolutely won't tell anyone.
Chiba: ...Really?
Yuki: Really. I'll keep my promise.
Chiba: Not Joker-sama either...
Yuki: I won't tell.
Yuki: This will be just our secret.
Chiba: I see...
Chiba: You'll keep it a secret?
Yuki: Yes.
Chiba: That really helps.
Yuki: Oh, no...
(Yuki: I'm a bit surprised.)
(Yuki: That Chiba-san can look this...)
Yuki: I absolutely won't tell anyone.
