  26. Kyougoku: This will make up for the losses from the jailbreak trial and help regain the trust we lost with this latest incident.

  28.  
  29. Kyougoku: I've never heard of this company before...
  30. Kyougoku: but I should still accept this offer.
  31.  
  32. Man: Now, to change the subject a little.
  33.  
  34. Man: I hear you hold a very special esper.
  35.  
  36. Man: One who is officially thought to be dead.
  37.  
  38. Kyougoku: Oh? I have no idea what you mean.

  41. 03
  42.  
  43. Man: Shundan Kimi.
  44. Man: We had heard rumors, but you hid her well.
  45.  
  46. Man: It has been years since her esper development stopped...
  47. Man: so resuming that as before may not lead to any real improvements.
  48.  
  49. Man: But we can draw out her full potential with our mechanization technology.
  50.  
  51. Man: How about it?
  52. Man: Will you hand Shundan Kimi over to us?
  53.  
  54. 04
  55.  
  56. Man: And not just her.
  57. Man: If you will offer us every high-level esper you receive...
  58.  
  59. Man: we will increase the loan...
  60. Man: fivefold...no, tenfold.
  61.  
  62. Kyougoku: This is what Aohoshi-kun was talking about.
  63.  
  64. 05
  65.  
  66. Suzu: They had nowhere to go after escaping the lab, so I took them in.
  67.  
  68. Kyougoku: And that is when you learned Shirakinu Honoka had passed away...
  69.  
  70. Kyougoku: and that people were after Shundan Kimi's power?
  71. Suzu: Yes.
  72.  
  73. Kyougoku: And as an employee of the 1st juvenile hall...
  74. Kyougoku: you realized you could fake her identity to shelter her there.
  75.  
  76. 06
  77.  
  78. Suzu: Yes. But I knew that disguise would not last forever...
  79.  
  80. Suzu: and there were rumors of human trafficking of the prisoners there.
  81.  
  82. Suzu: So I came up with a plan to keep her safe using the 2nd hall's creation and jailbreak trial.
  83.  
  84. Kyougoku: I see.
  85.  
  86. Kyougoku: I fail to see how you benefitted from that crazy plan.
  87. Kyougoku: Why go that far?
  88.  
  89. 07
  90.  
  91. Suzu: When orphanage asked us about our dreams...
  92. Suzu: I said I wanted to live with those kids...
  93. Suzu: once I could actually support them.
  94.  
  95. Suzu: When I left, I promised to write them once a week.
  96.  
  97. Suzu: But I only ever wrote two letters.
  98.  
  99. 08
  100.  
  101. Suzu: My life changed so much and I learned to enjoy my youth.
  102. Suzu: So I thought about them less and less.
  103.  
  104. Suzu: It didn't even bother me...
  105. Suzu: until they found me again...
  106. Suzu: and I learned Honoka had died.
  107.  
  108. Suzu: I wasn't thinking about them at all.
  109.  
  110. Suzu: I'm such a joke.
  111.  
  112. 09
  113.  
  114. Kyougoku: There was nothing you could have done even if you knew what was happening back then.
  115. Kyougoku: No one will blame you for enjoying happiness once you had found it.
  116.  
  117. Kyougoku: But was it really only guilt...
  118. Kyougoku: that led you to support their plan?
  119.  
  120. Kyougoku: If you ask me...
  121. Kyougoku: it looked a lot like you wanted to get arrested from the beginning.
  122.  
  123. Suzu: I ran away from it for so, so long, but maybe...
  124.  
  125. 10
  126.  
  127. Suzu: I wanted...
  128. Suzu: No, we wanted...
