Should a dangerous bridge be crossed at least once?
-> RTS Page for Gisèle Alain 4
Should a dangerous bridge be crossed [at least] once?
[The play on words here is from an idiom "crossing a dangerous bridge" meaning to put yourself at risk, I suppose the idea here is to try anything once, even if its risky]
Something climbed inside...
There's something on my back...
What is it?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Put your clothes back on. [down]
Stop that!! Now!!! [Lit: Put it down!! Hurry up!!!]
Sfx: Basa Basa
That's a spider...?
It's sort of cute.
What did you just say?
Huh? Well, I mean,
they always look sort of grotesque when you look at the pictures of them in the encyclopedia...
No, that's not what I was saying,
you mean you've never seen a spider?
A bug that you can find anywhere like that?
See, look, this place is covered in cobwebs.
It's because the maids would clean everyday.
Maids are amazing.
About those maids,
couldn't you get a couple of them to come here and help?
It'll be fine, don't worry.
We'll get through this somehow!
You can tell me not to worry but it still won't put me at ease [I'm still very worried.]
about being able to clean this entire place with just two people...
I'm finished with the garbage bags!
Sfx: zuruzuru [drag drag]
If you drag them they're going to tear. [written] 'cause the floor is rough.
Oh, I see.
Shall I give you a hand with carrying them out?
There we go!
Don't worry about the ones that are too big for you.
I got it.
Jeez, my muscles are going to be sore tomorrow...
Didn't I tell you not to bother with the large ones?
It's not that large...
Those sort of chairs are really heavy, you know.
... now I do. [lit: I see]
It's dangerous if your hands can't reach the sides.
The frame has glass in it, and the edges seem quite heavy too.
Just work on something lighter. [Lit: Something lighter will be fine]
Please don't over do it.
... Are you all right?
G-get out of the way, Eric.
Sfx: Yoro yoro
Just set it down. [once]
I'll be fine.
I'll be f...
Gisele, are you okay?
You didn't hurt yourself, did you?
It's because you're trying too hard and carrying too much.
There was nothing inside the drawers so I thought it'd be light...
Well, don't worry about it.
All it means is that there's a little more junk to deal with.
You're not thinking... [could it be]
more trouble than I am help? [Lit: not really all that helpful?]
Yeah, you are.
[Written] There we go.
You're overdoing it and that's why you're messing up.
Sfx: gara gara gara
Sfx: Hachoo [hekushu]
What's going on?
Oh? The fireplace?
It's really dirty.
It is, isn't it...
Guess we should clean the chimney.
No, we can't.
It's too narrow, I can't fit inside.
These sort of things
are best left to the specalists...
Sfx: Achoo [hekushu]
this is something that only I can do!
It's a pretty tough job though.
I know. [Lit: ok]
It's dark, dirty, cramped, and dangerous.
No problem! [lit: ok!]
Sfx: dosa dosa
Sfx: Cough... [keho]
Just in case you fall.
And I'll go upthere and drop a rope down so
make sure you fasten it around your waist.
I won't fall.
I hope not.
I'm gonna go up to the top then.
Be careful, okay?
Urk- [Lit: Ow-]
Sfx: Cough cough [geho geho]
SFX: Cough cough [geho geho]
Sfx: Cough Gasp [Geho Haa]
Sfx: Gasp [Haa]
Sfx: Bara Bara
Sfx: Karan Kan
It's so hot...
Sfx: gasa Gasa
Sfx: gasa gasa gasa
Are you okay?
You did it. Good job.
It's so bright...
Pretty nice view from up here.
That's where I used to live. [my parent's house.]
The huge one right in front.
... The one that looks like a castle?
Can we see your home from here?
It's over to the west,
it's a house with a brown roof.
There are too many houses with brown roofs, I can't tell which one it is.
The horizon looks amazing... [written] Though it's slanted.
It must have been tough.
Harder than I thought.
That's the noon bell on the clocktower.
Oh, I see.
I wonder if I'm able to hear it when I'm int he house...
Want to go get something to eat after your break?
Oh, but, Gisele,
the way you look now
is a little...
I don't have anything else to change into.
I had a store nearby pack these for me.
Please take your time with them.
Hey, come on, you're eating it too fast.
It's hard to eat! [written] Everything in the city is!
And, on top of that,
for some reason it's really tasty!
[written] Even though it's just a plain ham sandwich.
Well, food always tastes good after a hard day's work. [after you use your body and work, food is tasty.]
Is that so?
what were up to in that castle over there?
Language studies, math, music, chemistry, literature, history,
conversational skills, social skills, dance steps, table manners...
They were all things that I had to study. [that i was made to do]
Cold lemonade is the best!
Table manners, huh...?
Oh, so that's where that mysterious translation ability came from?
[Written] Wow-. [regular] That must've been tough...
But, you know,
I like studying.
Being inside that house was also so dreary and boring,
I had the most fun when I was reading books.
Biographies, travel records, books on history and thought...
From stories of adventure to novels about romance.
There was every kind of book you'd want in that house. [There were no books that I couldn't find at home.]
I'm having the most fun right now!
What? Being covered in soot is fun?
is unexpectedly prickly,
but it's so nice and cool.
It feels so good.
Are you okay?
I'm fine, I'm fine!
have so very many [as big/much as the mountains]
things I want to try out.
Anybody could tell that just by looking at you.
It's about time we finish the rest!
[written] Aren't you full of energy.
Just one "yes" will do!!

Chapter four: The End.
I guess it's my fault too for not noticing but...
Don't be so ambiguous.
When it comes to cleaning chimnies
you're probably supposed to start from.. the top... I guess...
all the soot falls to the bottom.
[written] These kind of things
[written] happen all the time,
[written] you know...
