Title: Life 7 Psychic Prime Minister
Riyon: But old man,
just because there's a Prime Minister with psychic powers doesn't mean everything's just gonna be really easy.
Kasuga: It's true that I may have read the mind of the person whose hands I touched today.
Riyon: Just because you can read what bad things people're thinkin' about you isn't gonna solve all your problems.
And sometimes there's stuff you're better off not knowing.
Riyon: What I'm sayin' is, even with your psychic powers, your frame of minds is what's most important.
But anyhow, you're possessed by way more evil spirits than any normal person, old man.
Kasuga: Possessed by evil spirits?
You're being attacked by black souls.
Riyon: Oh yeah, I guess you wouldn't know what I mean.
Even I didn't know when I was alive.
I'll send you an image,
so close your eyes and concentrate.
Kasuga: My eyes...?
Now breathe deeply and concentrate.
Large rectangle: Astral (Spiritual) World [I wrote this as "Spiritual World" before, but I didn't notice there was a "Realm of Spirits" kind of thing. Which means "spirits" more specifically. So I'm gonna be using a broader mythological term for the overall world, Astral World.]
Circles: Realm of God
Realm of Spirits
Realm of the Dead
Box: Dark World
Riyon: Where you are in now old man, is Earth. And connected above that is the Realm of the Dead.
Circles: Realm of the Dead
Riyon: There, everybody still lives like they do on Earth. It's a place to study on how to polish your soul.
I still kinda had a ways to go, so I went down to Earth to train as a Guardian Spirit.
But where it gets complicated is below that, the Dark World.
Box: Dark World
Riyon: I've never seen it either, but
it's a place where souls that are entrenched with evil squirm.
But it's said that within their subconscious, there's a desire to climb higher.
They look for gaps in human beings and sneak in in an attempt to escape.
Riyon: Your Guardian Spirit before me got taken in by them and disappeared, as well.
Because your gaps are so huge, old man...
Kasuga: So you're saying that if humans have larger gaps, evil can get in more easily.
Riyon: That's why there's good and evil, ya know?
That's exactly right.
Kasuga: This girl's worlds
are not mistaken...
Should I believe her?
Or shouldn't I...?
Kasuga: By the way, you look very young.
Why is that?
Is it because you died young?
Riyon: My story's not important...
Kasuga: But if it's piqued my interest,
it's natural that I'd want to know, isn't it?
Kasuga: Am I not able touch you...?
If I can, I should be able to find out without you having to tell me...
Riyon: People on Earth can't touch souls.
it'd be mean of me to not answer when you've asked me, so I'll tell you.
died at age 18...
I would've liked to live longer,
but there's nothing I can do.
Kasuga: I'm sorry...
Riyon: Don't worry about it.
That was destiny.
And even if my body is gone, my soul is still here.
If what I'm seeing and hearing after coming back from the verge of death is true,
Kasuga: then this girl
is a gift from god...
The abilities I nearly lost my life to get,
Kasuga: boom or bust,
I'll try using them.
For the sake of this country----
People: Good morning Prime Minister!
Are you feeling well today?
Minister Sakai made an inappropriate comment, is there any possibility of him being dismissed?
Kasuga: I feel fit as a fiddle.
People: What's gotten into the Prime Minister today?
He seemed awfully cheerful.
Maybe something happened...?
He had a completely different expression.
Box: Cabinet Prime Minister
Remaining Life Span 498 Days
Narration: This was the beginning
of Riyon and the Prime Minister's upheaval----
Bottom: Hito Hitori Futari (1) (End)
