  1272. [424][JPN][obviously only pretending to cry.]
  1273. [424][CHN][]

  1280.  
  1281. [427][JPN][I'll be thrown in prison! Waaaaah!」]
  1282. [427][CHN][]
  1283.

  1324. [441][CHN][]
  1325.  
  1326. [442][JPN][The man stares at me suspiciously. I immediately point in the]

  1328.  
  1329. [443][JPN][opposite direction that she went.]
  1330. [443][CHN][]
  1331.  
  1332. [444][JPN][「She went that way. I think she's gone already.」]
  1333. [444][CHN][]
  1334.  
  1335. [445][JPN][「Tch... Whatever. I'll get her next time.」]
  1336. [445][CHN][]
  1337.  
  1338. [446][JPN][The man turns around and starts to leave, but suddenly looks]
  1339. [446][CHN][]
  1340.  
  1341. [447][JPN][back.]
  1342. [447][CHN][]
  1343.  
  1344. [448][JPN][「I remember. You're the Dion boy. Your parents would roll in]

  1348. [449][CHN][]
  1349.  
  1350. [450][JPN][The man spits back the words as he leaves. I sigh in relief.]
  1351. [450][CHN][]
  1352.  
  1353. [451][JPN][I better get to the bar before I'm sucked into anything else.]
  1354. [451][CHN][]
  1355.  
  1356. [452][JPN][When I step into the bar like usual, Tian, the bartender, greets]
  1357. [452][CHN][]
  1358.  
  1359. [453][JPN][me with a broad smile.]
  1360. [453][CHN][]

  1373.  
  1374. [458][JPN][He's someone that even alchemists respect.]
  1375. [458][CHN][]
  1376.  
  1377. [459][JPN][He took care of my parents too. We came here to eat a lot when I]

  1380. [460][JPN][was young.]
  1381. [460][CHN][]
