pg81

p1

n1: "The great miller", Osbourne soar into the sky with the help of a machine that was created from wood and paper.

Title: The Hero in the Sky

p2

n1: With that, he landed by the side of the princess that was confined in the castle....

pg82

p1

n1: Aberteifi Village, Wales, England-

p2

n1: Roy Abbott always tell me about this hometown legend, with a glass of beer in one hand.

p3

n1: When he tells about it, I always listen to him in this manner.

b1: Well? What happened to the two of them?

p4

b1: Who knows, I forgot about it.

p5

n1: Roy's my best friend and he's also a war hero.

n2: During the Falklands War in 1982, he was the first person to land a parachute on the island of South Georgia.

p6

n1: Roy has been awarded a medal as "the fearless jumper" from her majesty the queen herself.

However, he returned to this village because his head was injured...

pg83

p1

n1: Oh yea, he's also Maybelle's fiance. She's my sister.

b1: Hey, Roy!!

p2

b1: I heard that you're going to fly again this year?

b2: You're gonna injure yourself again.

p3

b1: Yea I will...

b2: just like Osbourne.

p4

b1: Haha, this is why Maybelle's going to leave you.

b2: There's a rumor that Maybelle's going to marry the son of the village chief of the neighboring village soon.

p5

b1: Th-...that's not true!! Sis isn't...

p6

b1: Buddy, let's go.

p7

b1: So this is how the number one prodigy of the village, who went to university, and is the nation's hero acts...

b2: He's so childish./He has turned into a mere child.

n1: The people in this village think that Roy has gone crazy because of his head injury, but I refuse to believe so. It's not true!!

pg84

p2

b1: Roy, is this thing safe?...

It's gonna be a problem if someone got injured from this machine during the festival.

p3

b1: Don't worry village chief, I will prove that Osbourne's legend is true.

p4

b1: The ratchet's ready!

b2: The preparation's done!!

p5

b1: ....Well? So where's the medieval weapons specialist that you've invited?

p6

b1: He's arriving soon.

b2: If he sees it, he will understand that this is the real thing.

p7

b2: All that's left is to fly...

pg85

p2

b1: ...Osbourne, the miller fell in love with the princess at first sight.

b2: But the king wished to let his daughter marry the prince of the neighboring country.

b3: Hence, he confined the princess within this castle.

p3

b1: And what's that set up?

b2: This is one of the attractions of this village's yearly summer festival.

p4

b1: It's an reenactment of the legend of Osbourne, the man that flew into the sky.

b2: A girl that is chosen as the princess will stand on top of the castle. As for the role of Osbourne, all male that is over twenty years old is qualified.

b3: Those men will soar into the sky to reach the princess, like Osbourne and take the saffron bread from her.

b4: Hahaha

p5

b1: I see, so this is a test of courage... an initiation huh?

pg86

p1

b1: The summer festival is also known as the harvest festival... Back then it was held as an offer to the ancient Celtic sun god, Lug... In Ireland, Lug is known as Lugh. In Welsh, he's known as Lleu Llaw Gyffes.

p2

b1: Ah...I see!! I just heard about it. You're the "princess in the castle" this year, Maybelle-san.

p3

b1: Roy often write about you in the letters that he sent to me. Please invite me to your wedding.

p5

b1: Eh...Maybelle-san?

p6

b1: Sergeant Major Keaton!!

p7

b1: You look good, Lieutenant Roy Abbott!!

n1: Roy said that Mr. Keaton is his hero. Roy told me that "Mr. Keaton is a member of the SAS air troupe that was stuck in the rank of sergeant major, despite the fact that he has the potential to become one of the most magnificent commander."

pg87

p1

b1: This is my best friend, Buddy. He's Maybelle's younger brother.

n1: The war is a rigged game. Most of the time, the commander survives... It seems that the position that was in the highest risk of dying is the sergeant major.

p3

b1: Well then, Keaton, please show it to people in the village, that this machine can send a person flying into the air.

p5

b1: An ancient weapon, it works like a catapult.

p6

b1: Mr. Keaton, can this machine really make a person fly?

The rope is made from paper.

p7

b1: It will fly...

p8

b1: See!! It won't fail like last year.

Since I was a child, I've always believed that Osbourne's legend is the real deal!!

pg88

p1

b1: If he becomes the first person in world's history to fly, this will be a big story.

b2: Even this village will become famous...

p2

b1: But...the person will be sent up too high.

p3

b1: Based on Lord Galway's experiment in 1900, a person that weighs 70 kg will fly over 200 meters high.

p4

b1: W-we can just loosen the grip of the rope.

p5

b1: The catapult is like a sling.

b2: This thing isn’t made to send an object flying, in fact, it’s made to throw an object to crash down a wall. If you’re going to fly with this machine...

p6

b1: You're going to crash into walls of the castle like a human missile.

p8

b1: What if we use a parachute?

b2: The flight path is like a shallow parabola, so a parachute is useless.

pg89

p1

b1: So the conclusion is drawn, it's too dangerous.

b2: As a fire captain, it would spell trouble if people get injured or die from this machine.

p2

b1: P...please wait, village chief!!

b2: There's three days left until the festival. There's room from improvement...

p3

b1: You also said the same thing last year. It can not be included into the attraction.

p4

n1: At that time, I really hated this person for ruining our great plan from the bottom of my heart.

p5

b1: Thank you for stopping Roy.

b2: It's nothing...

pg90

p1

b1: The first time I met him was when he was discharged from military service and I've just graduated from high school...

p2

b1: It seems like Roy is really foolish for wanting to fly.

b2: He started to hang out only with kids that share his dream. There was a rumor among the villagers that Roy has gone mad from his injury during the war.

p3

b1: But I love his purity.

p4

n1: He....attempted to fly last year, but it ended up in a failure.

p5

b1. Roy really believes in Osbourne's legend with all his heart. It appears that he tried to fly once with a bow-like machine.

p6

b1: Has the war made him become child-like?

p7

b1: Even when Roy was still in the army, he has displayed a childlike courage.

b2: Is he trying to conquer his fear of flying?...No, he was very enthusiastic when it comes to soaring down/flying. It's as if...

p91

p1

b1: It's as if?

p2

b1: The smell of sulfur huh?

p3

b1: Until the middle ages, our village was a hot-spring health resort. That was in the 17th century, when Osbourne was alive, a chain of iron ore was discovered and the village prospered from mining them.

p4

b1: During the 17th century, it seems that Watt and Lord Cavendish also visited this place.

b2: Heh-!! Watt* who designed the steam engine and Lord Henry Cavendish!! That's awesome.

*T/N: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watt_steam_engine

p5

b1: This valley...is known as "Osbourne's secret valley". It has been said that Lord Cavendish was the one that named it this way.

p6

b1: Mr. Keaton just now you stopped speaking halfway....I understand what you were trying to say.

p7

b1: It's as if Roy wanted to die from flying...

pg92

p1

b1: He never attempted to propose to me...

p2

b1: I will end up betraying him...

b2: if this continues...

p3

b1: Preparation's done!!

p4

b1: The ratchet's looking good!!

b2: I hope it works, Roy!!

p5

b1: GO!!

pg93

p1

b1: Good luck, Roy!!

p5

b1: Roy...

p6

b1: Roy...

p7

b1: Roy...

b2: Roy...

p9

b1: Maybelle...

b2: Maybelle...

p94

p1

b1: Ah...If you're asking about sis, she just went outside crying.

p2

b1: Ha...

b2: Hahaha

p3

b1: It's natural that she'd give up on me....

b2: Ha....haha

p8

b1: I hope Maybelle will calm down before tomorrow.

pg95

p1

b1: I've got a good idea. The first person that plays as Osbourne will become her fiance. How about it?

b2: I see. But he's from the neighboring village...well I suppose it's fine.

p4

b1: Mr. Keaton, I have a request.

p5

n1: I told Roy's secret to Mr. Keaton...

p6

n1: Roy told me that I shouldn't tell this to anyone, but-...

b1: The first person in the world that flew into the sky was Elmer from Malmesbury Abbey...

p7

b1: But he was just a jumper that jumped down from a high place.

b2: The dream that the genius Galileo had, didn't came true until it was in the hands of Kayley and Montgolfier brothers in the 17th century.

pg96

p1

b1: But, if Osbourne's legend is true...the history changes.

b2: That's the dream I have since I was a child.

p2

n1: I was 12 years old back then when I started researching from ancient documents in the village's library. I found out that a person named Osbourne really existed and it is confirmed that he really made a catapult-like machine.

n2: I told my best friend named Kevin about it. At first he was highly pessimistic about it, but before he realizes he was caught up in my enthusiasm.

p3

n1: We tried making a bow from paper and wood. We started from a small prototype model...

p4

n1: Then we started creating a larger model...At last we created a machine that can send us flying.

p5

n1: We were confident that it will work so we fought about who's going to try that machine out first.

p6

n1: In the end we decided that we're going to let my dog, Ikaros try the machine out.

pg97

p1

b1: I've made you wait, Ikaros!!

b2: I'm so jealous!!

p3

n1: But the experiment...

p5

b1: Ee....

p6

b1: Eeek!!

p8

b1: Waaaa-

n1: I...I killed Ikaros. I must go to hell....!!

p98

p1

n1: After I've graduated, I entered the army immediately. But the war isn't hell....It was hell on earth.

b2: A lot of my comrades died, just like Ikaros. The reason I survived isn't because I'm a hero! I didn't die because I was the commander.

p2

n1: Ikaros...and my comrades that died in the war...

p3

n1: My life has nothing left except flying....

p5

b1: Mr. Keaton

b2: He's going to fly right? The legend is true right?...

p6

b1: Hmmm.

p7

b1: A machine that's made from paper and wood... I suppose that's a glider.

b2: That's wrong. Last year, Roy ended it up in failure with the glider. There's a peculiar air current on top of the castle.

pg99

p1

b1: Osbourne's a miller isn't he...

A miller..."paper and wood"

The paper bag that's used to carry flour.

b2: Wood...Add up wood and paper...

...No, burn, fire...

p3

b1: Originally, the village, is an iron ore mine....

b2: Before that it's a hot spring...If we talk about hot springs, it's going to be sulfur...

p4

b1: sulfur!!

b2: If we think about sulfur...

p6

b1: Buddy, can you go get several flour bags from the flour mill nearby!?

p7

b1: Eh?

p8

n1: 15 paper bags that are 1 meter wide, 2 meters long... These are the materials that Mr. Keaton told me to gather.

b1: *cough cough*

pg100

p1

n1: We cut open those paper bags and turn them into a large piece of paper...

n2: 5 of the paper bags are combined into one large paper bag. There are three of these large paper bags.

p3

b1: Ahem

p4

b1: Ah, village chief.

b2: I do feel bad about Roy's misfortune...

p5

b2: What are the two of you doing?

p6

b1: We borrowed this local history book from the library. There's a record about the 17th century, when Osbourne's still alive.

p7

b1: Osbourne isn't an inventor, but he's a scientist.

Just like Henry Cavendish....

p8

b1: That's right....I heard that you'll personally host the attraction at tomorrow's festival.

p9

b1: Ah...

b2: That's right....

pg101

p4

b1: Well then everyone! The summer of this year is going to end soon. It's time for Osbourne and his beautiful princess to appear.

p6

b1: Do your best, she's waiting for you!

pg102

p1

b1: The first person that's going to play as Osbourne....

p4

b1: W-what's that?

p5

b1: Before we decide on our first Osbourne...

b2: I have something to show to everyone!!

p6

b1: Mr. Keaton!!

p7

b1: He and Abbott have cleared up the mystery surrounding Osbourne's secret!!

Well then Mr. Keaton, I leave the rest to you!!

pg203

p2

b1: They are burning wood?

b2: Are they trying to make a hot air balloon? They've connected the seams of the paper bag together with resin.

p3

b1: That's impossible. If they are trying to make a human float, they need a giant balloon that has a diameter that's over 15 meters.

p5

b1: As I've thought, it's not a balloon huh?

b2: But, inside of those gas tanks...

p6

b1: Roy, it's ready!!

p7

b1: Roy!?

b2: Roy Abbott!!

pg204

p2

b1: Okay, let's go, Roy!!

b2: Go and tell the princess how this legend is going to end!!

p3

b1: Keaton.....

p6

b1: That's cheating! There isn't that kind of gas in the 17th century!!

p7

n1: Last night, this is what Mr. Keaton told the village chief: "The hint is Lord Cavendish...He saw the same thing that Osbourne saw at Osbourne's secret valley"....

pg105

p1

n1: "There are iron ores in the valley and there is sulfur in hot springs. Sulfur water...In other words, sulfuric acid! Lord Cavendish applied sulfuric acid on iron and created something"

n2: "But...Osbourne had discovered this occurrence long before him. He created a gas that is ten times lighter than air!"

p2

b1: A new fact has been discovered in the history of chemistry.

b2: Our native hero, Osbourne had been manufacturing hydrogen!

p3

b1: Furthermore, he has discovered the hot air balloon 200 years earlier than the Montgolfier brothers!!

pg106

p5

n1: Is this the conclusion of this story?

p6

n1: Well it's obvious that this kind of story must end this way....

n2: "Osbourne and the princess got married and lived happily ever after".
