Woman: Be warned!
Woman: If anything moves in the area, I will immediately shoot it!!
Text: Start from the color pages!
Man: And what'll you do then?
Man: It would be Kujou Otoya.
Woman: That's fine by me.
Woman: The corpse of the grandson of the host country's prime minister...
Woman: would make an excellent example.
Woman: Prime Minister Kujou's grandson...
Woman: Kujou Otoya. Where is he!?
Haruka: I-I'm alone...!
Haruka: He told me to hide here...
Haruka(thought): Don't come out, Otoya-san.
Haruka(thought): You'll be killed!!
Haruka: and left!!
SFX: Nod nod
Man: What should we do?
Woman: We had a partial success.
Woman: Let's take her with us and search the nearby area.
Woman: We can use her...
Woman: as bait to draw out Kujou Otoya.
Man: If that rich boy has the guts, that is.
Man: Let's go.
SFX: Slide slide
Otoya: Think! There has to be a way...
Otoya: I WILL save her...
Otoya: I will not let any more sorrow come to you...
SFX: Pull tight
Otoya: I won't let them hurt you!!
J: Now this was unexpected.
J: I never thought the princess would end up protecting the knight.
J: People change.
J: Even if to you she will always be a the little sister you must protect...
J: she has her own will.
J: Now how will...
J: Kujou Otoya respond?
Fujimaru: That's obvious.
Fujimaru: He will try to save Haruka even if it costs him his life.
Fujimaru: He will keep his promise to look after her.
J: Do you trust him or control him?
J: It's hard to tell.
J: At any rate, we just need to...
J: add this into the path for our plan...
J: and continue as normal afterwards.
Fujimaru: Continue as normal?
Fujimaru: Haruka and Otoya have been dragged into this now, so...
Fujimaru: ...I understand.
Fujimaru: Are you...
Fujimaru: okay with this?
J: I guess.
J: It's your problem, I don't really care.
J: I don't think it's the best idea though.
J: Not now.
J: But do you really have a choice?
Fujimaru: No, I don't.
Fujimaru: I'm prepared.
Fujimaru: We will modify the plan!
Michael: There's some motion on the elevator side.
SFX: Beep beep
Kusunoki: Listen up, everyone.
Kusunoki: As I told you, there is an elevator beyond that door.
Kusunoki: Do not hurry and do not panic.
Kusunoki: Please escape to the surface as calmly as possible!
Kusunoki: Be careful!
Kusunoki: I pray you make it safely.
Kusunoki: This is Kusunoki.
Kusunoki: I will be sending an encrypted transmission using random number table 4.
Kusunoki: I have finished guiding the five guests in the elevator to the escape route.
Kusunoki: I am going to head to the Prestige Floor of the party hall to meet up with Investigator Minami and...
Michael: Falcon has given us 3 hours.
Michael: The 200 hostages on the Prestige Floor need to make it to the elevator before then.
J: A three hour time limit, hm?
J: Let's say two hours.
SFX: Beep beep
J: Let's get started.
Woman: Let's search over there.
Otoya: From the way she moves her body, the woman is definitely the more skilled of the two.
Otoya: I'll take her out first...
Otoya: and then use this arrow to take out the man!!
Otoya: If I don't pull this off in one go...
Otoya: Haruka-chan is in danger.
Otoya: I need to aim for their vitals!!
Man: Don't move!
Man: If you do, I will kill this girl!!
Man: Put down your weapon, put your hands on your head, and come out!
Man: Hiding will get you nowhere, Kujou Otoya!
SFX: Step out
Otoya: Do not...
Otoya: lay a hand on her!
Man: Don't try anything, rich boy. Heh heh heh...
Haruka: I'm sorry... This is all my fault...
Otoya: No, it isn't.
Otoya: You were the one that protected me.
SFX: Slide down
Man: Heh heh heh... Oh, are you two in that kind of relationship?
Man: Hmm? So someone as cute as you is fucking the prime minister's grandson.
Otoya: Don't touch her!!
Man: I don't think you understand your position h-
Hibiki: You two really aren't making this easy.
Haruka: Eh...? H-Hibiki-san...?
Haruka: My brother's girlfriend!?
Hibiki: They're fine,
SFX: Sigh of relief
Fujimaru: Good job, Hibiki.
Otoya: I see...
Otoya: Mizusawa Hibiki was hiding within the enemy team...
Otoya: and she was going to have them miss us.
Otoya: So that's it, Fujimaru.
Otoya: That's why you told us to trust you!
