ghost: this is good isn’t it!

We should have done this from the beginning!

to open your wounds and make you writhe:
right then! in the art gallery!

p4
tista:don’t look at his eyes

until THE MOMENT arrives

I can’t look straight at him

ghost:what are you going to do? you’re doing it now? if you were to kill him in a place like that it would cause a huge commotion you know?
theres no need to make AN EXAMPLE of him either

tista:if I wait until the right opportunity my resolve will be crushed

dad: “look around you carefully tista…

ghost: its not the wrong choice

the only one who can save us is you

what?

because theres nothing else

there wasn’t anything else

p10
“im going to draw your face here

I’ve…
remembered a bit
about the past

the three of us made a promise

in the future, fulfilling our dreams

and smiling!

p13
arty: no actually lets make it even if our dreams aren’t fulfilled, whoever is smiling is the winner

suzy: what do you mean winner?
and whats with that negative prediction

arty: shut up
its cause you said I’d never become president…

suzy: but then the meaning of drawing this will be gone
so lame akkun

arty: ch....
change promise!!

suzy: that was quick

arty:in the future we’ll get together like this too

and if theres someone who isn’t smiling then we’ll help them to smile!

suzy: seems like a clever way to cheat

but that sounds good

alright
in that case, first we have to make this kid smile!

arty: woah
that’ll be a tough one

むに
*pinch*

p14
haha

ahahaha

arty

it was to hard for me

hey!!

I can’t …I cant smile

p28
do you know what the root is for the word “monk”, mademoiselle?

apparently it comes from the greek word “monakos*”
do you understand?
remaining in solitude, there is a certain thing we must be

our shame and our apperance publicly scorned
mocked as commoners
pitiful monks

I cannot endure to look at you

ウ ウ

パチン

p29
sister

チキ
*click*

deacon…

the area is crawling with the organization’s agents

please be careful

thanks

uncle pooh…

30
snow: is that girl important?

are you splitting company and letting her out of the cage?

a man in the police department remembered a girl from a case 12 years back, who had the same name and bore a strong resemblance

in this sludge pot of a city, disappearances aren’t rare so it didn’t stick in anyones mind
but in the cases of several “tistas” who had gone missing, that girl was there too

yes
poor thing

her parents killed
picked up by the organization
and turned into a murder machine

proko: stop it!

snow: in the snipers nests of most professional hitmen, any sign of emotion was generally nonexistent

but at sister militia’s, they were there
spilling out, like the scream of a heart being torn apart

31
proko?: any trace of self-worth must merely have been thrown away, among the trauma of the past and living in a despotic organization
that’s what her eyes showed

snow: you’re wrong!

of course shes regretting it isn’t she? her own existence! her whole life up until now! you haven’t showed any compassion!

proko: but that’s not true!
its not true..!!

snow: if you’re giving repentance

the people shes killed!! and the people to whom shes caused suffering are the ones you should give it to!

32
snow: the police and the courts will guarantee your protection with all their power!

surrender!!

proko: I’d just

I’d just like you to wait a little…

priest: you can’t hold a siege while bleeding like that

hurry up and come outside

if it be a car
if it be anything

my arrows are not afraid

the next time you show yourself
it will be the end for both of you

33
don’t be stupid…
I’m fine! they’re just flesh wounds!!

im sorry arty…

shut up! stop apologizing!

thank you

you were smiling
weren’t you arty
hah

huh?

while…
you drew the picture

you win…

huh…

I wont let him die

何言って *ドッ*
what are you say..*thunk*

34
…ing

ugh

tell the police you only came with me because I threatened you

tis…

*thud*

if I can protect your smile

I might be able to smile a little too…?

that’s a good girl

mademoiselle

35
the weak point of these eyes of ours is that the field of vision is extremely narrow

they are exceptional in assassination but terribly poor when it comes to defense

if you want to stay alive

*click*

you’ll have to silently disappear without a trace

if your general location is discovered you can be targeted with arced ballistics and ricochets, by your reflections in the glass and metal

even being in narrow places or under walls has no meaning!!

36
an open space…?

have you given up?

fool

37
turn to ashes

still facing the day after tomorrow

daddy

I

there are still

many

many scenes I would like to see

scenes without sadness

38
AMEN

*kablam*

theres not only one

because I know now

“I wonder what you will see with those eyes, tista…”

39
grrrrrrrr!!!

the things you tried to show me, daddy!!

im…

40

*BLAM!*

IMPOSSIBLE!!!!

41
*kablam*

I’ve wanted

to see them all this time

42

43
2 years later

-federal courthouse-

real name: Riddim Shagir, was a cleric of the holy order of the sacred heart

this material is a report on crimes related to the holy order of the sacred heart submitted by him to the FBI

it is also a report from the cooperative criminal investigation over the last two years related to the militia cases in various nations

44
whats been grasped is only the tip of the iceberg

it may suspend the operational capabilities of the organizations new york branch only momentarily

even so, this is crucial evidence

it’s a huge step for us

well then

next…the plea bargain?

I don’t want anything

I only ask

about her reduction of penalty, and treatment

45
clack clack

Akkun did you hear? they said she just regained consciousness yesterday!

it seems she got permission for a visit, so why don’t you try and go meet her?

*ringtone*

really!?
thanks suzy!

now then
Riddim Shagir’s person will be transferred to raccoon prison

you don’t have to tell her about me
because that child is always quick to blame herself, you know…

Dr. Lone

was this good enough?

46
*bam*

*thud*

that’s right
you aim for the brain stem

well done, scar

…….
what about
sister?

now, I wonder…
although her existence is neither poison nor medicine at this point…

well, that is something for the top to decide

47
but I’m sure she realizes…
that there will be no end to it after all

ガララ
*clatter*

number 328!

get out
you have a visitor

good morning, me!

its been awhile!

it’s a good thing that guy came for us quickly isn’t it…

anyway
if we’re gonna be together from now on as well

why don’t we try and get along a little better…

48
*slam*
yo!
sleepyhead!

“the defendant,
Tista Lone”

your hair’s grown a lot

uhuh…

“is given the sentence of 120 years in prison”

49
here you go!
you’re lonely by yourself right?

thank you

thank Suzy! she fixed it up real nice for you

“but”

50
its not too late

“after 1/3 of her sentence has passed, upon review of her condition and circumstances”

to start over, and for your dreams to come true…
I don’t think its too late at all

master arty will always always be on your side

フフフ
heheheh

“parole, under 24 hour surveillance will be considered”

51
yeah

first, shall I tell you…

52
may these eyes

be filled with pleasant scenes one day

goodbye teacher

good bye

53
yes yes

see you tomorrow children

gentle scenes, that come and visit quietly

TISTA---the end

BWM did a scan for this chapter.

I'm wondering if I should leave out sound effects. I mark them with asterisks and usually put the japanese text in as well but they sometimes end up in speech bubbles. I'm not good at english sound effects either so I sometimes just write what the sound is, ie. *cocks gun* but those end up in the scans as well :(
