Chapter 8: The Phantom Voyage
Rich person: Who is that beauty, I wonder. She must be the one they were talking about...
Rich person 2: Oh, she's with the Miki family's son...
Rich person: His mistress. No, that nouveau riche youngling is still single. She's just some oddball.
フン 綺麗な顔してもきっと生まれはいやしいわ ごらんなさい 下品なこと
Woman: Hmph. Even if she has a pretty face, it's evident she's of low birth. Look at that, what vulgarness.
Woman: Anyhow, it seems she started out as a mere actress.
Then, she used her wiles to seduce a rich patron.
Or so I heard.
Woman 2: I'm not afraid of a girl like that.
No, no. It's hardly a good plan to interfere with the whims of the Miki House's young leader.
Young master Satoshi is entranced with that girl. Wherever he goes, they're together.
They're never separated, not even for a moment.
何しろ こんな船旅にまで あの娘を連れてくるんだから 本物だ
What should we do? He went as far as to take her on this ship, it must be the real thing.
Ha! It'll be a good show. At least we won't be bored.
Tenome: Phew. So many annoying things.
Tenome: Goodness, a woman's jealousy is a frightening thing.
I don't know who you are or where you're from, but you've fallen in love with the young master, haven't you, miss?
Tenome: You detest me more than anything.
But still, you shouldn't do something like this.
Why? Listen. Just like this, I'll surely be eaten by the fish.
And once that happens, I'll come back as a ghost.
Tenome: I'll be smiling at you from the portholes.
I'll float suspended above your cabin bed, blood and seawater dripping from my drenched body.
Tenome: And then, when you're sitting in the ship's narrow bathtub,
I'll reach up my hand covered in fish scales,
grab you and drag you under the water.
Tenome: For of course, the bottom of the tub and the bottom of the ocean are connected.
Tenome: Ah, of course! I'm a fool. I'll become a mermaid, covered in blood, and I'll cling to the night sky.
Tenome: And then, I'll spot the ship you're on, and I'll pick you out from the sky.
I'll proclaim your sin in a loud voice. Behold! There is a murderer here!
You are a murderer!
I was just playing a little trick on you.
Was it a bad dream?
Don't cry, miss.
Girl: But, I really do despise you.
Mr. Satoshi is infatuated with you.
Tenome: That's not how it is. It's just that if I'm not near the young master, he sees things he'd rather not. That's all he needs me for.
Girl: What? I don't understand what you mean.
You don't like Mr. Satoshi?
Tenome: Well, that's not the case either.
Ever since I was born, no one had ever really needed me.
Now, I'm happy just being dragged along together.
Yes... That's all there is.
