[Innocent 22 Translation by Kewl0210]
Marthe: Please rest fore a while at our Brie Comte Robert villa,
my beloved Jean-Baptist.
Title: n°22 Jet Black Tunnel
Marthe: Thomas, where is Charles?
Thomas: The young master said he was going to interview the criminals in the gaol.
He's gone to the Conciergerie and will not be back until afternoon.
Marthe: ......He's off acting on his own again...
Marthe: Very well then.
That should be arriving from Reims soon. ["That" in italics]
today, I would like you to say a blessing before our meal in your brother's place.
Siblings must support one another...
Charles: Nothing's changed about a single cloud or tree.
Charles: The city
and the people are all just as they always are----
Despite the fact that tomorrow, a human
is going to be ripped limb from limb and go from being alive to death in a terribly gruesome way...
Charles: What is this strange apprehension I feel.....?
It's like I am wandering into a dark hole alone...
Charles: ...The execution is just a day away now.
I must hurry to the Conciergerie and find out for myself whether the criminal was Monsieur Damiens or not...
Someone: No, no!!
Unless the stakes are pounded one third of the way into the ground, they'll be knocked over by the boisterous crowd. Redo it!!!
Charles: That voice----...
Guy: Tomorrow, people will be descending on this plaza from all of Paris- no, all of France to see a once-in-a-lifetime spectacle.
What happens here tomorrow will be talked about for many centuries to come------...
Guy: We are building a stage of history!
So everyone must carry out their duties with the utmost care, down to the last stake!!!
Text: To my dear Charles-Henri, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Charles: Uncle Nicolas...
Charles: Charles: Uncle Nicolas!!!
Nicolas: You're as thin as always.
Still not eating your meat, are you?
Box: Little Brother of the "Third Generation", Baptist
Executioner directly controlled by the Palace of Versailles Administration of Justice
"Prevote de L'Hotel"
Executioner of Reims
Charles: What brings you to Paris, Uncle?
Thomas: My Brother isn't in any condition to do so, so I came to help you.
I was ordered to come by Mother.
Normally, I would politely decline, but for my cute little nephew
I would go to the ends of the earth.
Nicolas: ...Charles, we always eventually wake up from nightmares.
This terrible execution will be over soon as well...
Charles: We must hurry......
Uncle Nicolas, you must come with me to the Conciergerie...!!!
I must meet with the criminal before the execution takes place!!!
Nicolas: Please don't say things like that, Charles...
You must take back those words right away...!!
He is currently being dealt every form of pain known to man...
Nicolas: After two months of this torture, his heart will have collapsed----
His flesh will already be starting to smell rotten---------...
He has now......
Nicolas: become something other than human-----!!!!
Guy: Do not step over!
Guy: Any further and you will be in the domain of us torturers...
There is no place for executioners here!
