Fujimaru: Dad's funeral was held in a small hall in a "Third-i" hospital.
Title: File 43 A Dangerous Tranquility
Fujimaru: Since dad is still officially a criminal on the run, this was the only way the funeral could be held.
Fujimaru: But Haruka and I were fine with it this way.
Fujimaru: Dad had given his life fighting for our country.
Fujimaru: We knew that.
Fujimaru: Everyone at "Third-i" knew that.
Fujimaru: We felt that that was enough.
On cell: Calls: 0
Otoya: He saved us all, right?
Otoya: This is the same as when it was Miyagawa-san. I know you're busy but you could at least make an appearance,
Haruka: Dad...Thank you.
Haruka: I'll be fine...I'll be fine, dad.

News: We pray that the workers who died in the accident at the experimental fast-breeder reactor "Future" have found peace in the next world.
News: Up next is news on the American President's arrival in Japan.
News: President Adams arrived at Kansai International Airport yesterday morning and is headed to Tokyo on a bullet train this very morning.
Fujimaru: And, as usual, the terrorist attack was called an "accident".
Fujimaru: The power outage and an accident at the power plant were said to have caused the explosion at the police department. It was made into something completely unrelated to terrorism.
Fujimaru: Since you're not watching it, do you mind if I turn off the TV?
Fujimaru: If they didn't hide the truth like that, the people of this country would not be able to continue believing in the "peace" they rely on.
Haruka: ...Go ahead.
Fujimaru: I'm sure Haruka understands. Even though she hasn't heard all the details.
SFX: Knock knock
Hibiki: Are you ready?
Fujimaru: Oh, uh, just a second...Hey, Haruka.
Fujimaru: There's someone I want you to meet. I know this isn't the best time, but...
Fujimaru: Okay, come in.
Fujimaru: Her name is Mizusawa Hibiki.
Haruka: I know.
Haruka: She works at the same cafe as you, right?
Fujimaru: Um...well...how should I put it?
SFX: Fidget fidget
Haruka: Is she your girlfriend?
Fujimaru: H-how did you know!?
Haruka: I think anyone would have been able to figure it out.
Fujimaru: Nice to meet you. I'm Haruka, his sister.
Hibiki: Nice to meet you. I'm Mizusawa.
Haruka: I'm surprised I hadn't noticed.
Haruka: When did you start going out?
Haruka: I see...
Haruka: Way to go, big brother.
Haruka: She's quite beautiful.
Fujimaru: Ha ha...
Fujimaru: You're still not up to long visits, are you? We should be going.
Haruka: Yeah, thanks, big brother.
Haruka: Take care of...
Haruka: my brother for me, okay?
Hibiki: See you, Haruka-chan.
Fujimaru: What did you think of Haruka?
Hibiki: She seems like a nice girl, I guess.
Hibiki: Oh, sorry.
Hibiki: I've never had someone in this country completely trust me other than you, Fujimaru.
Fujimaru: That's fine.
Fujimaru: They'll all trust you before long.
Fujimaru: You idiot. We can't do that here.
Minami: Okay...Hibiki-chan, was it?
Minami: Come with me.
Minami: You'll be living in "Third-i" special lodging for a while for both surveillance and protection purposes.
SFX: Look down
Minami: And you'll be wearing this device that will monitor your actions.
Minami: If you try to force it off, it will sound an alarm, but if you're wearing it, we can track you if you're captured too.
Hibiki: It looks it's going to be hard...
Hibiki: to get them to trust me.
SFX: Step forward
Fujimaru: Can't I stay with her, too!?
Fujimaru: There's room in the "Third-I" special lodgings, right?
Fujimaru: Can't I live there until Haruka gets out of the hospital!?
SFX: Tears welling up
SFX: Cling to
Hibiki: Fujimaru, I love you, I love you, I love you!
Fujimaru: It's pretty dreary. But I guess that's to be expected.
Hibiki: How about we get new curtains!
Minami: H-how did things end up like this?
Fujimaru: This is great.
Fujimaru: We're right next to the hospital Haruka's in.
Sign: Satou General Hospital
Fujimaru: I'll need to bring the belongings I need over since it seems like it'll be 10 days until Haruka is released from the hospital.
Fujimaru: Oh, what about your things?
Hibiki: I don't really have any. We can just go buy a few changes of clothes and some other general things.
Hibiki: I have plenty of money.
Fujimaru: What about the stuff you left at your old place?
Hibiki: I don't need it.
Hibiki: And they might be watching that old place.
Text: I wouldn't want to pick up an assassin along with my stuff.
Fujimaru: Oh, that's right. Ha ha ha. No, you don't want that.
Minami: Um...Anyway, I'll be next door.
Minami: Use this 2DK however you like.
Minami: If anything happens the alarm will go off!
Minami: Each bedroom has a lock.
Minami: Make sure to lock the door before you go to sleep! Got that!?
Hibiki & Fujimaru: Okaaay!
Kusunoki: Huh? What are you doing here, Minami-san?
Minami: Oh, nothing.
Minami: That unnaturally sweet atmosphere made me sick.
Minami: Kusunoki, do you want to go get something to eat?
Fujimaru: Wh-what is it?
Hibiki: I had a dream.
Fujimaru: ...A dream?
Hibiki: I was in a dark room all alone without you.
Hibiki: And I was stabbed from behind.
Hibiki: I was the one who stabbed me.
Hibiki: I...killed myself.
Fujimaru: I died...all alone...
SFX: Put down
Hibiki: Stay with me...
Hibiki: Don't leave me alone.
Fujimaru: Don't worry.
Fujimaru: I'll always be with you.
Fujimaru: Are you embarrassed?
Hibiki: Is that what this feeling is?
Fujimaru: You've gotten another emotion back.
