  5. Title: Chapter 8: Queen
  6.  
  7. Misaki: Yes.
  8. Misaki: It is true I was caught off my guard ability.
  9.  
  10. 58
  11.  
  12. Misaki: And I thought I was being as cautious as possible.
  13. Misaki: It's pathetic.
  14. Misaki: My shame ability is burning at my heart.
  15.  
  16. Ghost: You seem awfully calm for that.
  17.  
  18. Misaki: Do I?
  19. Misaki: I really want to tease someone to blow off some steam™
  20. SFX: Rumble rumble
  21. Misaki(imagination): Tei, tei.
  22. SFX: Poke poke poke
  23. Junko(imagination): Queen!?
  24. SFX: Squish squish
  25. Ghost: Ah ha ha...
  26.  
  27. Misaki(outside): Where am I, anyway?
  28. Ghost: You're really mad, Misaki-chan.
  29.  
  30. Ghost: You were reminded of the Clone Dolly, weren't you?
  31.  
  32. 59
  33.  
  34. Misaki: Those people sure are persistent.
  35. Misaki: They put out these Indian Poker things even after being destroyed...
  36.  
  37. Misaki: And as usual, I'm being used by some malicious people!
  38. Misaki: The technical ability might be blameless...
  39. Misaki: but this city is full of idiots who just love being up to no good!
  40. Misaki(small): Do you really get that!?
  41. Ghost: She really is mad...
  42.  
  43. Ghost: You can't allow anyone to abuse technology with a connection to you.
  44. Ghost: You really do have a strong sense of justice, Misaki-chan.
  45.  
  46. Misaki: This isn't anything as noble as justice.
  47.  
  48. 60
  49.  
  50. Misaki: There might be some circumstantial ability at work...
  51.  
  52. Misaki: but distributing cards that remake someone's mind...
  53. Misaki: is the worst kind of human experiment.
  54.  
  55. Misaki: It has to connect back to that Clone Dolly lab...
  56. Misaki: that treated people like a product.
  57.  
  58. Misaki: I won't let them continue to insult...
  59. Misaki: humanity like this.
  60. SFX: Grind
  61. Misaki: I'll dig it all up...
  62. Misaki: and crush it until nothing is left.
  63.  
  64. Misaki: This is all based on a personal "ism".
  65. Misaki: I'm not doing this for the city or anything, okay?
  66. Ghost: Right, right.
  67. Ghost(small): You're so cute.
  68.  
  69. Ghost: I see. But...
  70.  
  71. 61
  72.  
  73. Ghost: Aren't you just...
  74. Ghost: hating your own kind?
  75. SFX: Float
  76.  
  77. Ghost: Right?
  78. Misaki: ...Huh?
  79.  
  80. Ghost: I mean, you invade and toy with people's minds just like them.
  81. Ghost: You're just like...
  82. Ghost: those "idiot" researchers.
  83.  
  84. Misaki: What...are you...?
  85.  
  86. 62
  87.  
  88. Ghost: You're...
  89. SFX: Crack
  90.  
  91. SFX: Scatter
  92. Ghost: all the same.
  93.  
  94. Misaki: Me...?
  95.  
  96. Ghost: What's with that dazed ability?
  97. Ghost: You're proud of this body, aren't you?
  98. Ghost: Then don't look away☆
  99.  
  100. Misaki: Is this a hallucination power?
  101.  
  102. 63
  103.  
  104. Ghost: "When I spy deep in someone's mind and use my brainwashing ability on them, I will take responsibility for their lives."
  105. Ghost: That's the rule you've given to yourself.
  106.  
  107. Ghost: Quite a lofty goal there.
  108. Ghost: "I'll mess with your head, but I'll take care of everything for you☆", right?
  109. Misaki: I can't move!?
  110.  
  111. Ghost: Hah.
  112. Ghost: Don't make me laugh.
  113. Ghost: Who's really using people as tools here?
  114. Ghost: You screw with their heads, rob them of any privacy...
  115. Ghost: and trample on their pride, so you don't get to criticize anyone.
  116. Ghost: You and those scientists are both trash.
  117.  
  118. Misaki: Is this a psychological attack?
  119. Misaki: If I can't move while they're invading my mind...
  120. Misaki: does it mean I'm inferior?
  121.  
  122. 64
  123.  
  124. Ghost: Even the people who idolize you get used as tools.
  125. Ghost: Then again, your AIM Diffusion Field* may be...
  126. Ghost: brainwashing them into idolizing you in the first place.
  127. SFX: Twitch
  128. SFX: Squish
  129. Ghost: Hokaze would be the stereotypical example.
  130. Ghost: Her adoration of you is honestly a little disturbing.
  131.  
  132. SFX: Snap
  133. Ghost: Kyah!
  134.  
  135. Margin: *A weak field of power emitted by espers.
  136.  
  137. Ghost: Ohh, how scary☆
  138. Misaki: Drat.
  139.  
  140. Misaki(thought): I can't let her rattle me!
  141. Misaki: If you keep mocking that girl...
  142. Misaki: you will regret it.
  143.  
  144. Ghost: Hee hee.
  145. Ghost: You get mad for others...
  146. Ghost: but you tough it out when it's about you.
  147.  
  148. Ghost: You have such a lovely power...
  149. Ghost: so you...
  150. Ghost: hold back...
  151. SFX: Poke
  152. Misaki: What is with her?
  153. Ghost: too much☆
  154.  
  155. 65
  156.  
  157. Ghost: Why do you always...
  158. Ghost: sacrifice yourself...
  159. Ghost: and choose the happiness of others?
  160.  
  161. Ghost: You keep doing good deeds in secret.
  162. Ghost: That's just who Shokuhou Misaki is.
  163.  
  164. Ghost: Do you feel a need to play the hero...
  165. Ghost: because you know manipulating others is wrong?
  166. Ghost: Hmm, that may play a role, but...
  167.  
  168. Ghost: Oh, I know.
  169. Ghost: Ha ha!
  170. Ghost: You really are pure!
  171. Ghost: Could it be...
  172.  
  173. 66
  174.  
  175. Ghost: You're making yourself more virtuous...
  176. Ghost: in the hopes of making a single miracle happen?
  177.  
  178. Ghost: For that person...
  179. Ghost: who can never again...
  180. Ghost: remember you?
  181.  
  182. 67
  183.  
  184. SFX: Creak
  185. Ghost: It's like a form of prayer, isn't it?
  186. SFX: Brush
  187. Ghost: But~
  188.  
  189. Ghost: If you want "him"...
  190. Ghost: you should use your power❤
  191.  
  192. Ghost: You could take him by force if you tried, couldn't you?
  193. Ghost: So why not do it?
  194. Ghost: Wait too long and SHE will get there first☆
  195.  
  196. SFX: Grin
  197.  
  198. Ghost: You're scared, aren't you?
  199.  
  200. Ghost: What if you do everything you can and it isn't enough?
  201. Ghost: The thought absolutely terrifies you.
  202. Ghost: So you instead cling to some fleeting miracle.
  203. Ghost: Isn't that right?
  204.  
  205. Ghost: You're so weak☆
  206.  
  207. 68
  208.  
  209. Ghost: Miracles are such fleeting things.
  210. Ghost: They're called miracles because they don't come true.
  211. Ghost: Cruel, isn't it?
  212.  
  213. SFX: Struggle
  214. Misaki: But THAT'S WHY...
  215. Misaki: I will keep making small miracles happen.
  216.  
  217. SFX: Struggle
  218. Misaki: That's my small way of fighting back.
  219.  
  220. Misaki: A girl who helps people is a good girl, right?
  221.  
  222. Misaki: And a good girl will wait.
  223. Misaki: While improving herself day by day.
  224. Misaki: Until...
  225.  
  226. 69
  227.  
  228. Misaki: I'm worthy of a miracle...
  229. Misaki: and I can get him to look my way.
  230.  
  231. Misaki: Has your comprehension ability caught up now?
  232. Ghost: Tch.
  233.  
  234. SFX: Struggle
  235. Misaki: Kh.
  236. Ghost: Again, that's not good enough.
  237. Ghost: Just selfishly use your power. Simple, isn't it?
  238.  
  239. Ghost: Deep down...
  240. Ghost: you are the same as those selfish scientists.
  241.  
  242. Senya: No.
  243.  
  244. 70-71
  245.  
  246. Senya: Misaki-chan is...
  247. Senya: farrrrrrrr kinder than anyone else.
  248. SFX: Bright
  249.  
  250. Misaki: You...
  251. Senya: She's sometimes scary, though.
  252. Senya(edge): Hee hee
  253.  
  254. Senya: Mhh, I can...
  255. Senya: finally move.
  256. Senya(outside): I'm exhausted.
  257.  
  258. Senya: I was trying to possess her since she was at the school...
  259. Senya: so what is this?
  260. Senya: It's like she has a powerful resistance to being controlled.
  261. Senya(outside): It's hard to move...
  262.  
  263. Senya: Misaki-chan just isn't honest with herself.
  264. Senya(small): Really...
  265.  
  266. Senya: Anyway...
  267. Senya: What was that dream?
  268. Senya(edge): It was too dark to see much...
  269. Senya: A bad Misaki-chan was trying to...
  270. Senya: do something bad to a good Misaki-chan.
  271.  
  272. 72
  273.  
  274. Senya: The bad Misaki-chan...
  275. Senya: was whispering bad things in her ear.
  276. Senya: Wait?
  277.  
  278. Senya: I think I heard something like that recently.
  279. Senya: Something that whispers bad things in people's ears.
  280. Senya: An evil spirit?
  281.  
  282. Senya: I don't like scary stories.
  283. SFX: Tremble
