Smargs won't Sing Oneshot : Smargs Don't Sing

en
+ posted by natural-log as translation on May 7, 2013 07:49 | Go to Smargs won't Sing

NOTE: As I know, the title should be "Smargs Don't Sing", makes less sense otherwise.

smarg pg 01 ============================================
Smargs Don't Sing


smarg pg 02 ============================================
>last Panel
Let me hear...

[that request of yours]...


smarg pg 03 ============================================
>Panel 1+2+3
However, if you break the contract...

Kukuku... surely you can imagine what will happen?


>Panel 4+last
Contract formed.

This three years "term"... // make sure you abide to it...!


smarg pg 04 ============================================
>Panel 1
Smarg, // creatures with high intelligence.

They possess great powers that human can't hope to match.


>Panel 2
However, by forming a contract, // and following "the term" provided by the smarg,

the smarg will listen to one request.


smarg pg 05 ============================================
>Panel 2
Chloe-chan, two whiskey please!

Here too!

>panel 3
Mister, does this place provide rooms?

Welcome! Yes, we do. // This is unusual, the village usually doesn't get visitors at this season.


>Panel 4
Aah, well... // Kinda got a promise, you see.


>Last Panel
Heeh, a promise?

More importantly, please give me something warm, I'm freezing here.

Right, just a moment. // Heey, Chloe!


smarg pg 06 ============================================
>Panel 1
Chloe!


>Panel 2
Bring this to table number 3.


>Panel 3
Say, what's the recommended menu here?


>Panel 5
Sir customer, the recommended menu is beef stew. // Chloe, table number 3, you should hurry.


>Panel 6
You were wondering why she didn't answer you, right?

That girl can't speak. // Please don't think badly of her.


>Panel 7
She's a good and diligent girl.

Unlike her older sister.

Older sister?


smarg pg 07 ============================================
>Panel 2
Where's Chloe...?


>Panel 4
There she is...!

She just had to rain on the party...!


>Panel 5
Ilia...!


>Panel 6
Chloe...!


>Last Panel
Didn't I tell you to bring me liquor...!?

Why are you serving other people!?


smarg pg 08 ============================================
>Panel 1
I keep telling you that I come first!!


>Panel 2
That's just mean...


>Panel 3
Stop it, Ilia!

I told you not to come out if you're just going to interrupt the store business!!


>Panel 4
This girl's my little sister, you know?

Obviously, a little sister must always listen... // to her older sister...!


>Last Panel
Whoa...!


smarg pg 09 ============================================
>Panel 3
Siiiir!!?


>Panel 4
No need to fuss over it, this is nothing.


>Panel 5
Are you okay?


>Last Panel
No, are YOU okay!!?


smarg pg 10 ============================================
>Panel 1
...You just had to get in the way, like an idiot.

I didn't mean to hit you, you know?


>Panel 2
What the heck are you saying, Ilia!!

You're at fault here!!

How about an apology!?


>Panel 3
Wh...

What the heck...


>Panel 4
It's not my fault!

Wah.

You guys are ganging up on me to make me the bad person here...!!


>Panel 5
Stop, Ilia!!


>Last Panel
...Excuse me... we are closing for the day.

Everything is on the house, so don't worry... // We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience.


smarg pg 11 ============================================
>Panel 1
Now, we need to treat your wound. // Chloe, help me.

I'm telling you, I'm fine.

How can you be fine!?


>Panel 2
Geez...

That idiot Ilia...

I feel sorry for Chloe-chan and the master.


>Panel 3
...Why must she be left alive...!


>Panel 4
It'd be better if she hadn't come to this village...!


>Last Panel
Tomorrow is...

...exactly three years...


smarg pg 12 ============================================
>Panel 1
The day of the promise...


>Panel 2
It's alright, // I'm still following the "term"...


>panel 5
Haa (text)

Haa (text)

Haa (text)

...No need to panic, // I keep telling you I'm fine.


>Last Panel
That much won't hurt me, // look.

There's no wound or anything, right?


smarg pg 13 ============================================
>Panel 1
He was only drenched in red wine, there's no blood, // or any wounds.


>Panel 2
It's all good you're okay, but... // it sure is strange that you don't even have a bruise.

What did I tell you?


>Panel 3
...Still, we are really sorry for this.

Ilia is just like Chloe, // I'm looking after these two sisters.


>Panel 4
Looking after?

Yeah, // they're originally from another village.


>Last Panel
Three years ago, these girls' hometown was destroyed by a smarg.

There were only two survivors, Ilia and Chloe. // They managed to escape all the way here.


smarg pg 14 ============================================
>Panel 1
Chloe has been a great help to me, // but Ilia has always been like that... Many people don't think well of her.

But, this is the first time she actually got physical with a customer...


>Panel 2
But, that's no excuse,

I'm terribly sorry.


>Panel 5
Chloe.


>Panel 6
I'm thinking...

of having Ilia leave this place.


>Panel 7
I understand what you are trying to say.


>Last Panel
You've always been covering for her.

But, I've already made my decision.


smarg pg 15 ============================================
>Panel 1
I'm planning to talk this over tomorrow.


>Panel 3
Onee-chan, welcome back!


>Panel 4
I'm home, Chloe!


>Panel 5
You must be tired from your work, // the food is ready.

Nice, nice, that's my little sister!


>Panel 6
Hm, hm, la, la.

Hm, la, la♪


>Panel 7
You sure look peppy, Chloe.

I feel cheered up too just listening to your singing.
Just listening to you cheers me up.

>Last Panel
Onee-chan, are you feeling okay?

Weeell, not really... // Hm! The soup's tasty!


smarg pg 16 ============================================
>Panel 1
Onee-chan, are you forcing yourself?


>Panel 2
Shouldn't you cut back on your work a bit?

What are you talking about, it's for our living...


>Panel 3
Now then, I'm going to sleep. // Thanks for the food.

Ah... wait, // you haven't eaten your bread!


>Panel 4
I'm good. // You should eat it.

But...!


>Panel 5
...You should eat a lot, so you can grow up quickly. // Then, you can help me... right?


>Panel 6
Right!


>Panel 7
I have to help Onee-chan.

When I've grown big, for sure...!


>Last Panel
Onee-chan, you have a bad fever... // It's because you keep forcing yourself...!

...This much is nothing for me...


smarg pg 17 ============================================
>Panel 1
What do I do... I can't buy medicine with just my earnings...


>Panel 2
How come I can't do anything at a time like this...

...Hey.


>Panel 3
Yes?

Sing a song for me.

A song?


>Panel 4
You used to sing when you were small. // But, I don't hear you sing too often lately.

I just sing whatever in my mind...


>Panel 5
It's fine, so please... // Sing for me.


>Panel 6
Hearing you singing... // will make me feel all better...


>Last Panel
...Then, // I'll sing a lullaby.

Even at a time like this, Onee-chan is still thinking of me...


smarg pg 18 ============================================
>Panel 1
When can I be of help to her?

I want to help, Onee-chan.


>Panel 4
Look, over there...! // There are somebody lying!


>Panel 5
We heard voices, thank goodness we came here...

They're kids!

Could they be from the village that was attacked by a smarg...


>Panel 6
...M...My little sister...

What happened?


>Panel 7
She...

became unable to talk...!


>last panel
It's okay, you can relax now. // We'll get you to doctor.

I'm going to carry you, okay?


smarg pg 19 ============================================
>Panel 1
...Even now...

You're still useless...!


>Panel 2
Always pulling my leg...!

You...


>Panel 3
If only you'd just disappear...!!


>Panel 4
....I have...

To be useful...


>Panel 5
From now on, I have to protect... // Onee-chan...


smarg pg 20 ============================================
>Panel 1
This is...


>Panel 2
Wow, everything is sparkling clean. // Good morning, mister!

Aah... Good morning.


>Panel 3
Do you always clean the place like this?

No...


>Panel 7
...Wake up,

Chloe.


>Last Panel
Enough with the cleaning!


smarg pg 21 ============================================
>Panel 1
I completely understand what you're trying to say. // You want me to let Ilia stay here, right?


>Panel 2
But, I can't allow that!


>Panel 3
After all, Ilia can only become a burden! // For both of us!

I won't change my mind...


>Panel 5
You should go back to your room and rest for a bit...


>Panel 7
Chloe...


>Last Panel
Even when her sister is like that...

....Uwaa~...


smarg pg 22 ============================================
>Panel 1
It's morning and you already look like an eyesore. // What are you kissing the floor for?

>Panel 3
Could this be your hobby or something?


>Panel 4
Ilia... Listen you!

Chloe was cleaning the shop all night, // and now she's even begging like this so that I won't chase you out, you know that!?


>Panel 5
She did everything for you...!!


>Panel 6
Don't you feel anything at all!!?


>Last Panel
...Chloe.


smarg pg 23 ============================================
>Panel 1
Do you want me to thank you or something?


>Panel 4
...Cheeky kid.


>Panel 5
It's still dirty here, Chloe.

You can't even clean properly, really...


>Panel 6
You're as useless as ever!


>Panel 7
Ilia!!


smarg pg 24 ============================================
>Panel 1
Get out!!

I won't allow you to stay here any longer!!


>Panel 2
Never come back here!!


>Panel 3
Hey now... I did say it, right? // That Chloe is my little sister...


>Panel 4
It's her fault she's doing all that without my permission.

You...


>Panel 5
....! Chloe!


>Last Panel
You too, you need to stop covering for her! // Why would you go so far!!

What's wrong, master?

Whoa, Chloe-chan is bleeding!


smarg pg 25 ============================================
>Panel 2
How could she hurt Chloe-chan...!

What kind of a girl is she!?

You should just go away like he said!


>Panel 3
Not just from the shop, from this village too!

Everybody hates you!

It's better if you're not here!


>Last Panel
Fufu... // Fufufu...


smarg pg 26 ============================================
>Panel 1
Sure... That's fine. // I'll leave.

That has always been my intention.


>Panel 2
...After all...


>Panel 3
Today... this village will be no more.


>Panel 4
It was quite fun to live here. // I get to do whatever I want.

But since everyone will die anyway, // being hated by you doesn't really matter.


>Last Panel
...What are you trying to say...?

Ilia.


smarg pg 27 ============================================
>Panel 1
You guys are really stupid...

Why only two children survived a smarg attack... // Have you ever think about it?


>Panel 2
I asked... the smarg for a favor.


>Panel 3
You can kill my little sister!!

Just spare me!!


>Panel 4
And then we formed a contract. // If I follow the term, it will let me stay alive.

This is the proof...


>Last Panel
A smarg seal...!


smarg pg 28 ============================================
>Panel 1
Right... The proof that I've a contract with a smarg. // If I break the term of the contract, the smarg will know from this seal and will come to kill me right away.

But as long as I abide to the term, I will never be killed.


>Panel 2
The term of the contract is...

"To never lose the urge to kill Chloe for three years."


>Panel 3
Normally, you probably wouldn't be able to keep hating your own sister.

But, I could pull this off without any trouble...


>Panel 4
Since before our village was attacked... // I had gotten tired of my "good older sister" role.


>Panel 5
Everyday was suffering...!


>Last Panel
It's alright! This much is nothing!


smarg pg 29 ============================================
>Panel 1
I had been enduring it!!


>Panel 2
You should eat this, Chloe!


>Panel 3
Useless...

Suck at singing!


>Panel 4
Hearing you singing makes me feel all better!


>Panel 5
I have always...

hated you!!


>Panel 6
But... this is the end for you too.


>Panel 7
H-hey!

Isn't that....!


smarg pg 30 ============================================
>Panel 1
Thi-this is bad, it's the smarg that destroyed that village!!

We'll get dragged into this...! // Run!!


>Panel 2
It's no use running.

Back then, everyone tried to run as well...


>Panel 3
But only Chloe and I survived. // You know that, don't you?


>Panel 5
Why do we...

Have to die for someone like you!!


>Last Panel
Th...

That's right!!


smarg pg 31 ============================================
>Panel 1
Why don't YOU die!

Waaah, I'm scared!

Why is this happening...

Murderer!!

Devil!


>Panel 2
Ahahahahahaha!!

Yes, // that's good...


>Panel 3
Everyone should hate me.

Curse me.


>Panel 4
Because that way...


>Last Panel
I'll be the only one who has to die.


smarg pg 32 ============================================
>Panel 1
That is the true term of the contract...!


>Panel 2
Pl-please don't kill us... // Please...!


>Panel 3
Pathetic begging... // How many hundreds of times have I heard that...

...Please...!


>Panel 4
If you want to kill... then just kill me!

You... can kill me however you want!!


>Panel 5
Let this girl live...

She's my precious sister!!


>Last Panel
I beg of you...!


smarg pg 33 ============================================
>Panel 3
"Just kill me"!? // Abandoning your life so the other can live....

Just how idiotic can you get!!


>Panel 4
Very well, that sounds amusing!

You said I can kill you however I want, didn't you!?


>Last Panel
I will give you three years!!

During that period, including your sister there, // you must get hated by the people around you!!


smarg pg 34 ============================================
>Panel 1
Three years should be more than enough time to meet many humans.

However, you must become someone that every single one of them hates!!


>Panel 2
Your little sister that you want to save must hate you too. // After you've become confined in solitude,

I will kill only you.


>Panel 3
No one will mourn or feel regret for your death! // They will even be happy for your death!

And after three years, I will devour you!! // That is the term!!


>Last Panel
Now, what will you do!? // Even so, are you still going to save your sister!?
Gyahahaha.

Chloe...!!


smarg pg 35 ============================================
>Panel 1
Even if... I don't have parents.


>Panel 2
Even if I have no money.


>Panel 3
Even if I have no food.


>Panel 4
Even if everyday is harsh...!!!


>Last Panel
It's all because you were here...

That I could live strong everyday...!


smarg pg 36 ============================================
>Panel 1
....That's why...

Fine...


>Panel 2
I accept the term...!!

The three years period...
definitely weren't easy.


>Panel 3
Everyone is such kind and wonderful people.

You've to try really hard to make them angry...


>Panel 4
....And...


>Panel 5
I'm sorry for being so cruel to you everyday...

Chloe...


>Last Panel
You just won't hate me no matter what...

So I was wondering what I should do...


smarg pg 37 ============================================
>Panel 2
But...

You finally hate me now, thank goodness...


>Panel 3
Very well.


>panel 4
I will kill only you.

It is a contract after all...


>Panel 5
Bounded by contract, your flesh and blood will become my power.

I will obtain power greater than ever...!


>Panel 6
Uwaaah!!

It's coming!!


smarg pg 38 ============================================
>Panel 2
Eh...?


>Panel 3
Chloe...!?


>Panel 4
That little girl was...

It appears to me that she's trying to help you...!?


>Panel 5
Breach of contract.

It's a massacre, then?


>panel 6
Wai...


>panel 7
Let me go! // Let me go, you!

Why did you come!?

Everything will come to nothing at this rate...!


>Panel 8
No one has to die!

You can live on too, Chloe!


>Last Panel
If I die,

everything will be settled!!

Let me goooo!!


smarg pg 39 ============================================
Chloe...!


smarg pg 40 ============================================
no trans


smarg pg 41 ============================================
>Panel 1
You two... // step back a bit.

Eh...

He's... that customer...!?


>Panel 2
...I've come-

to fulfill the promise,


>Panel 3
Chloe.


>Panel 5
Great job enduring it for three years.


>Last Panel
...What are you...!?


smarg pg 42-43 ============================================
A SMARG.

I HAVE COME TO PROTECT THESE TWO.


smarg pg 44 ============================================
>Panel 1
That smarg had lost hope in this world.


>Panel 2
Because they possess great intelligence, smargs deceive each other.

Because they possess great power, smargs hurt each other.


>Panel 3
Such days have been wearing him down.


>panel 4
Tonight...

the wounds still won't heal...


>panel 5
Gh...


>Last Panel
No one is can be trusted.

There should be nothing worth believing in this world.

So, what he had thought.


smarg pg 45 ============================================
>Panel 1
But----


>Panel 4
This was the first time...

the smarg heard a lullaby.


>Panel 5
Smargs don't sing.

This was the smarg's first time knowing...

>Panel 6
That there's something that could be so soothing.


smarg pg 46 ============================================
>Panel 1
...Oh, // you stop already?

...That's too bad.


>Panel 3
...What was that just now?


>Panel 4
I want to hear some more...


>Last Panel
It is a lullaby...


smarg pg 47 ============================================
>Panel 1
You sing it for the one...

you wish to protect...


>Panel 3
...Protect?


>Panel 4
Onee-chan's always pushing herself.

She would even sacrifice herself... // just to protect me...!


>Panel 5+6
...Even today...

She did it again...!!


>Last Panel
Onee-chan... she made a promise with a smarg...!

So that she can protect me... // She's going to die!


smarg pg 48 ============================================
>Panel 1
I heard everything!


>Panel 2
Just...

What should I do...!?


>Panel 3
Even though I want to protect Onee-chan...!!


>Panel 4
For the smarg...

The girl's way of thinking was something incomprehensible.


>Panel 5
Smargs make use of others to live.


>Panel 6
She can live on if she just makes use of her sister.

Thinking of protecting the older sister is just foolish.


>Last Panel
No smarg would ever do that.

However...

....Then...


smarg pg 49 ============================================
>Panel 1
Let's form a contract.


>Panel 2
If you agree with the term, // I will help you.


>Panel 3
If there were a better world,

I felt like that'd be the human world.


>Panel 4
Humans have something different than smargs.

Just like how they have this soothing thing called lullabies...


>Last Panel
Whether there's something worth believing...


smarg pg 50 ============================================
>Panel 1
I want to prove it through these sisters.



smarg pg 51 ============================================
>Panel 1
Gh...

I'm being pushed back...!?


>Panel 2
Why!? // You shouldn't have received anything from your covenanter...!

Not blood! // Or flesh!!


>Panel 3
How can you possess such power...!!


>Panel 5
If it's power,

I've already received it.


>Last Panel
...Term.

Right.


smarg pg 52-53 ============================================
>Panel 1
I will take your voice. // That's the term of the contract.

Eh...

>Panel 2
You won't be able to talk or sing. // But, you have to endure all that.

If you do, I'll come to protect you.


>Panel 3
After three years, I will fulfill the contract by coming to protect you.

Through the contract,


>Last Panel
I will gain power...

To win.


smarg pg 54 ============================================
>Panel 1
A smarg... // defeated another smarg...?


>Panel 2+3+4
That smarg, just what...

Chloe... don't tell me, you...


>Panel 6
Chloe!?


>Panel 7
It's dangerous over there! // Chloe!


smarg pg 55 ============================================
>Panel 1
I don't need any thanks.

All I did was fulfilling the contract for my own sake.


>Panel 2
Just like how that smarg over there wanted power.


>Panel 3
But...


>Panel 4
I... didn't make the contract because I want power.

So...


>Panel 5
Please let me hear it again.

Your song.


smarg pg 56 ============================================
>Panel 2
Chloe!


>Panel 3
...I think I understand now. // That smarg saved us...

Because of Chloe, right?


>Panel 4
...I'm sorry. // It must have been hard on you.

From now on, // I'll be sure to protect you properly...


>Last Panel
....No...


smarg pg 57 ============================================
>Panel 1
Onee-chan, you're the one who have always had it hard...


>Panel 2
Chloe, your voice...!


>Panel 3
...Thank you, Smarg-san.


>Panel 4
I'm finally able to say...

What I've always wanted to say so much.


>Panel 5
Stop enduring everything all by yourself...!

I can help you now...!


smarg pg 58 ============================================
>Panel 1
....Chloe...

....Right...


>Panel 3
Thank you...

You're already all grown up now...


>Panel 4
From now on, we'll work together...

to walk forward.


>Panel 6
The two of us...


smarg pg 59 ============================================
>Panel 1
You two have shown me the proof...

That there's more than despair in this world...


>Panel 2
It must be that there are things like this...

that I'm able to live on.


>Last Panel
The song of hope resounds throughout the world...

Smargs Don't Sing--------Fin
