Track 1: ?? : Situazione anormale
Like I said, that ain’t it…!!!
For me to not kill them because they’re a hostage, just what kind of stupid shit are you spewing?!!
This isn’t what we discussed, this isn’t a matter of me going through with it.
The basis for negotiation? Who cares about that?
Pathetic, so both of you are like this.
Though, as a normal human, you’re mistaken if you think you could win against me.
Yo, I’ve made you wait.
You were tied up round and round with rope, imprisoned, and place on your side the whole time, right? Have you not gone numb?
I’ll get you out right away.
ーーFor the sake of killing you.
I won’t allow anyone to interfere, you’re my prey.
It’s too early for you to be frightened, I don’t intend to kill you here and now. Let’s enjoy this together, the negotiation deadline with Amphisbaena has been extended for another 48 hours.
If that amount of time elapses, you’ll be considered useless to the family, and once that happens, there’s no meaning in keeping you around.
And there’s no meaning in performing a useless job is there?
In other words, I’ll grab you and escape, and gnaw on you until that time comes. It’s great, I can have you all to myself and torture you to death.
Betraying the organization is an easy thing.
Hey, stop standing around, come this way.
Forget about the arms, I’ve already removed the restraints on your feet, so you can move right?
Being a normal person is not an issue, I’m not expecting you to pull any crazy stunts. All you have to do is to follow behind me quietly.
I’ll finish off the guys who come rushing because of the sound of gunshots systematically.
Take a look, first off, we have one.
Oh, they’re coming out one after another, they’re coming short of the mark so they’re hopeless. Just who do they think I am?
It doesn’t matter if we’re on top of a container ship, or whether there are obstacles.
Okay, with this, those guys that were interfering with us are gone.
We’re getting out of here, let’s run until we succeed.
You people are in the way, step aside if you don’t want to die, there’s no way people like you can evade me.
Heh, this is pathetic, coming out all at once was pointless.
Like I thought, things were prepared hastily. Tch. Another nuisance.
Okay, that works.
What’s with that stupid look?
Shocked? But why?
Oh, were you surprised that I hit them with a wire shot? I mean, at this distance, it’s impossible to get a normal snipe at them, but I’m a different story; this much is a piece of cake.
Now then, how about you come over here?
It’s a small submarine, so it can just about fit 2 people.
Oi, we’re jumping, if you don’t want to get shot down, quietly follow after me.
Track 2: 00 : Giochiamo
Coast of the Mediterranean Sea, 10 p.m.
As expected, it’s cramped, but it’s unavoidable since it’s a submarine designed to seat one person in the first place.
In any case, we should try to stay as far as possible from the organization’s ship.
Hey, stop struggling. We’re in the middle of the sea so be quiet, there ain’t a place for you to escape to either way.
Good grief, you’re a pain to handle. Besides, if you’re engulfed by the ocean in a situation where your arms are tied, you’re fully aware of what’ll happen no? Do you want to drown to death?
As if I’d let you do that, I’ll be the one to kill you.
Hehe, you’ve finally calmed down.
What? Oh, are you curious as to who I am?
……I’m your father’s ghost.
You’re looking as though you don’t understand, but unfortunately, this ain’t a joke. I live to take revenge on Father.
Huh? What is it now?
Even if you have little relation to your father, you’re the boss of Amphisbaena, you can’t shake off the fact that you’re Father’s daughter you know?
And that is the sole reason for killing you.
You’re making an expression like it’s overly ridiculous, life is filled with irrationals things you know, it’s not just limited to me.
Go ahead and resent me, since I’m the man who’ll kill you.
We’re finally alone. It’s a bit tight, but how about we play around a little?
Outside is the ocean, there’s no place for you to escape and your cries for help won’t reach anyone.
Oh? When I look at it this way, you’ve got quite the cute face.
Look this way.
I’m glad that I was the one to kill you.
You’re quite the amazing fella, even though you look docile, you won’t give up. Your will is unexpectedly strong eh.
How nice, please entertain me more.
What? Are you trying to escape? Where do you plan on escaping to?
There’s only you and me here, and outside this submarine is the ocean. You have no choice but to obediently allow yourself to become my plaything. Right?
Do you still feel like running away? You really don’t give up, do you?
Please stop with this pointless resistance, because I’ll please you as well.
Come on, turn this way.
Are you angry?
That expression’s good, it’s hella inviting.
So there’s a malfunction, as expected, at this depth, it’s impossible to ignore.
Tch. Ain’t that great, you should be grateful to this junk because it’ll be a pain if I sink to the bottom of the sea together with you.
Haa…it can’t helped, we’ll surface at the closest shore.
We have plenty of time, the real fun starts now.
Track 3: 02 : Non fuggire
The shore of Palamós, Catalonia, Spain 12 a.m.
Tch. Jeez, we’re not in luck, where exactly is this place?
Hmph, Palamós huh. We’ve traveled quite the distance from Silica’s open seas it seems, the closest safe house from here is…
Hey, wait…!!! Who said you could go off on your own?!!
I thought it’d make it hard for you to get out of the submarine, that’s why I removed the ropes.
Did your knees give out on you?
That was a warning shot so it won’t hit you. I won’t let you have an easy death, like I said, this is revenge.
If I felt like carrying it out, I would’ve done so on the container ship, and right now, the muzzle’s pointed at the back of your head. At this distance, it only takes one shot.
If I felt like it, you’ll be gone from this world in a single moment.
Listen, don’t you dare think of running away from me. For people like us who are a part of the mafia, treachery is the greatest sin, no one in the traitor’s family will be spared.
And I’ve betrayed my organization, so I’ve prepared myself for the consequences.
I have no choice but to murder all the pursuers no? That’s it means to leave the organization.
Your old man, Father, betrayed me, and so he should receive punishment for that, that’s how the Mafia works.
Even if the said person kicked the bucket, retribution will be brought down upon you for Father’s betrayal. So I’m simply making use of my own privileges.
That’s right, as per the Mafia pledge.
You have the right to oppose me. If you want to do it, then try. I don’t mind, it’s the habit of prey, that way it’ll be more fun.
Come on, stand up. How long do you intend to remain fallen on your backside?
We’re heading towards Barcelona. From here, out of the safe houses I have, the closest is located there.
And I’ll slowly deal with you accordingly.
If you try anything strange, I’ll give you a non-lethal shot this time. If you don’t want to be placed in pain then quietly obey my orders.
Yes, that’s right, I happened to pick this up, it’s a pain to have you scampering about after all.
Let’s cut you loose, with this, you won’t be able to separate from me until you descend into hell.
Now then, we need to find some transportation.
Perfect, there’s plenty of small boats with lax security aren’t there? Speaking of which, this place’s a tourist site but there are also fishing boats here eh.
That area seems easy to enter.
Well then, let’s go, for the sake of being killed by me.
Track 4: 03 : Oblio
Tch. Looks like we’ve been found by our pursuers. And is that a pleasure craft over there?
Take over, it’s faster that way, things are looking to be interesting.
Whoa, it’s shaking quite a lot. But well, this much is nothing to me.
Idiots, where exactly are you trying to shoot? You won’t be able to hit me with the returning fire.
Hey hey, does the organization not have any decent snipers? Even if it’s impossible for me to acknowledge them, I never thought I’d be able to finish off our pursuers this easily, they seriously took light of me.
There’s one more, no, two more. I guess I’ll finish them both off all in one go.
Oi, duck down behind me for a bit. Don’t do anything unnecessary, got it?
Sticking their heads out carelessly like that, do they have a death wish?
Pathetic, with this, it’s over.
Hey, you can pop your head out now, I’ve finished off everyone.
Next up, let’s help ourselves to their boats, that way it’ll be faster when the waves are low.
Oh? They’re pretty nice boats, so they even use black market patrol boats.
Even though they’re of the same organization, they’re a useless bunch. At this rate, rather than being pursuers, they’re pretty much delivering me a new vehicle. Are they volunteers or what?
First off, after creating some distance, we’ll start traveling by land. Regardless of how much of a small fry they are, it’s annoying to deal with them one by one, so let’s quickly make way to the safe house.
Though to you, it means that you’re a step closer to death.
Don’t worry, I’ll escort you with care like a princess until we reach the safe houseーーfor the sake of killing you under the best circumstances.
Okay, from here on out, we’re traveling by land.
Car eh. I would’ve preferred a motorbike but…
Could our pursuers come by? Though there’s no way things could be that convenient.
Hehe, what great timing for them to appear.
One, two, and it’s over. Seriously, what did these guys come here for? Are they actually offering means of transportation to me?
Come, let’s help ourselves to their car. Come on, take a seat on the passenger side.
Hmm? For you stare at me like that, is something the matter?
Who am I?
Even from an untrained eye, I don’t seem like an average Mafia member huh.
Well, that is true. I told you did I not? I’m your old man’s, Father’s ghost, someone he was supposed to erase, and someone who shouldn’t exist in this world; I’m a failed creation.
And that’s why the vast majority of ordinary humans pose no threat to me.
My state is the result of Amphisbaena’s planned attempt to create a perfect agent, I’m a being brought to life by Project Macchina.
What? Are you shocked that your own father was the project planner?
Don’t misunderstand, I don’t particularly angry about the fact that I was selected for Project Macchina. Of course, the training I was put through at the institution was no easy task, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to call it hell.
But if you consider how I’d become the strongest man if I could endure the training, I didn’t think poorly of it.
Besides, I was talented. Out of all the other trainees, I was given the guarantee of becoming the best Macchina.
And yet, your father me marked me as a failure.
Because of that, I was thrown out of the institution and lost my place to be.
And then, I was welcomed in by my current organization. I’ve fought with those from Amphisbaena, but it was pointless. The men of those who viewed me as trash who could not kill me no matter how many times they tried.
In other words, they all got fended off by this failure.
Father’s, your subordinates, I taught them that they’re scum below me. I intended to beat them to death, but to kick the bucket first is…
Father, your old man, just how cowardly of man is he?!!
Speaking of cowardice, my organization is the same. Even though you were kidnapped under the understanding that it’s okay to kill you, they brought up the desire to use you as a bargaining chip.
Betrayal is a grave sin, that’s the rules of the Mafia.
The organization broke its promise with me, in other words, I was betrayed once again. And that’s why, I dragged you out and crushed the organization.
Hmm? What? There’s no place for doubt is there?
Huh? You want to hear stories of Father?
Oh, so it was about that. You don’t know the face of your father right? Even though you had little contact, I guess he was a classless man even to his own daughter.
Not just his face, you didn’t know of his identity did you?
What an amazing blunder. Your father was a world-famous bigshot Mafia boss, you know? And yet, to think that his daughter would live the life of an ordinary civilian.
Memories of Father?
I only saw him when he came to terminate Macchina.
Face…? There are probably aspects that resemble yours since you’re parent and child. His hair was your eye color.
I guess so.
Strange, I can’t remember. It’s oddly hazy, even though his face was one I believed I could never forget, I can’t remember.
Hatred, despite being this clear about my hatred for Father, is this how childhood memories are?
What is it? …Isn’t it strange for the memories to be fuzzy?
I remember the crucial part so it doesn’t matter, your old man, Father is my enemy.
It’s annoying to go about it in detail.
That’s enough, just shut up! In any case, Father denied my entire being, there’s no mistaking that.
Looks like I’ve spoken too much.
But even so, it’s been forgotten. Despite going through harsh training that could continue to affect me as an adult, has it gone and passed?
I keep calling it hell, but it’s not an exaggeration.
Besides, I received my name from a man who returned from the depths of hell. Saying that it’s fitting since we’re living in hell, the Macchina trainees were given such names.
Wait, the one who said that was the boss of the organization.
What the HELL are you doing all of a sudden?!! It’s dangerous for you to ram into me in the middle of the road you know!?
The car in front of us?
I see, there’s a scope aimed at us. Can you drive?
You can’t, eh.
In that case, anything is fine, just cling to that area. Once the car stops, get out and hide behind that tree.
Huh? Which tree? That tree to the left obviously!!!
Good work, there are two more cars this time. Afterwards…
There we go.
What unskilled men, all those extra bullets won’t hit anything idiot.
Heh, though, I guess that’s how it is. With this, I’ve dealt with our pursuers, so let’s make haste.
But even so, I never imagined that I’d be saved by you, it seems like I’ve allowed things to get to my head.
I give you my thanks, now let’s go.
Track 5: 10 : Pagliacco
Mataró, Spain 8:00 a.m. 10 hours have elapsed
Would you like a light meal?
It’s pointless to try and escape so remain quiet and not call for help. I’ll handcuff you unto the handles.
Were you a good girl?
Take this as your reward.
Why are you looking surprised? It’s just an expresso plus some food. Take it.
Why are you thanking me? You weird woman, you gonna be killed by me, you know?
Eh? I’m strange as well? Is it that odd for me to give food to someone who I’ll kill? I told you that I had no plans of killing you right away did I not?
I don’t want you to be a burden so I’m giving you a meal to eat. You’ll be killed by these hands of mine after all.
To me, you’re the finest prey, so it’s only natural to put on airs.
That’s right, you’re my specialty dish.
I’ll re-adjust the handcuffs, now hurry up and eat. We’ll head out once you finish eating.
What is it this time? Do I look carefree?
It’s true that this place is only a slight distance away from Barcelona, but I’m not enough of an idiot as to bring mice into the safe house; I ought to exterminate them on-route.
What do I plan to do after having had betrayed the organization? I never thought you’d ask that.
Rather than worrying about me, how about you worry about yourself? Or have you finally given up?
If that’s the case, you’re an obedient one.
It’s not a bad idea for there to be an air of tension when your life’s about to end. Once you get used to it, you can easily survive in any hell; like Macchina facility.
But well, when it comes to what happens after I kill, you can take your time and think about it after I do so.
Huh? You want to hear about my Macchina days?
I mean, you’re getting murdered because of that, so I’ll go ahead and tell you.
That place was a facility that gathered kids because kids are pure and easily influenced after all, and I was nurtured to be a sniper.
Did you know? Snipers are treated as elites in the armed forces, and the same applies to Amphisbaena.
I was genuinely happy to be considered the best and the strongest. As a sniper, I was often told off in the short term but in exchange, I had talent.
And that’s why, there wasn’t any reason for me to be treated as a failure. Where the hell would you find a sniper more skilled than me!?
But one day, I was suddenly told that training was canceled and I was thrown out of the institution under the notion that I was a failed project.
Before I knew it, I became affiliated with my current organization.
I was carrying around a sniper rifle as long as my arms.
Yes, that’s right, it’s as you’ve said, I only know of the Mafia world.
Hmm? Don’t look at me with such sad eyes. I’m not particularly bitter about the fact that I was raised to be one of Amphisbaena’s covert operative, nor about being under the control of my current organization.
What I’m pissed about is the fact that I was arbitrarily branded as a failure, despite me being a first-class sniper.
I mean, that’s what it is I guess.
What is it? You’re coming up to me so optimistically, do you wish to be kissed again?
I get it, I get it, so stop being so angry.
I’m not exactly trying to hide it, you’re not just cute, you’re a good woman. And that’s why I’m going to take a great deal of time to kill you.
So let’s enjoy ourselves before that. Right?
What is it now? Could you not read the mood a little? The events that happened when I was young aren’t a big deal.
Haa…I get it. Jeez, why are you so fixated on that?
I guess so, you’re right, I only have a vague image. But it’s not strange for you to not remember minute details from when you were a child right?
Though, it’s certainly odd that there’s nothing.
The only clear memories I have were from after I joined my current organization.
What’s with that? This isn’t some cheap novel you know? Even I know of incidents where memories were planted.
It was an issue that occurred in America, but it was relayed all the way over to Europe.
Hmm, are you wanting to say that I was one of the children who had memories implanted in them?
Despite being obsessed with the fact that I was considered a failure, it is suspicious that I can’t remember anything concrete about it.
The training days at the institution were harsh, so isn’t strange for memories to be lost due to stress.
The possibility that the boss of my current organization took advantage of my psychological state as a child? But for what reason would they implant memories into me?
Certainly, I would become an excellent piece in warring against Amphisbaena.
But have you not seen too many movies?
Tch, it’s completely your speculation, you have no proof whatsoever; if you have any, show it to me now.
Your father abandoned me, that’s the undeniable truth.
Otherwise, how else would you explain these emotions…!?
Hah? You’re the same? Is that how you see me right now?
You’ve gone too far in mocking me.
Enough, just shut up. I have nothing besides vengeance, that was my sole reason for living. So you’re gonna deny EVERYTHING, over your stupid guess?!!
It is true that I have nothing, but this heart is burning with hatred. Hatred to me, is the only certainty.
And then to say that it might’ve been all a lie, as if I’d believe it that easily.
We won’t make it in time, brace yourself!!!
Track 6: 11 : Pensieri pigri
Mataró, Spain 9:00 a.m. 11 hours have elapsed
Hey, set this up, I’ll give you the instructions so follow what I say. Don’t say you can’t, if I don’t concentrate on driving, we’re both gonna be gone from this world.
I’m leaving it to you okay?
This area seems convenient. Oi, get out through that door and jump into that building in front of your eyes.
Okay, we’ll climb all the way to the building’s roof.
You’re quite capable eh. The rifle has been assembled without any issues, we’ll deal with those we can see around us.
As a side partner, you’re great.
It’s the roof, we’ll leave through the exit.
Look, the lot who overwhelmed us, have arrived at the bottom of the building. We ought to reduce them, don’t we?
You, get behind me and don’t look up.
Tch. Two escaped from below me, but it’s impossible for them to dodge at this distance. If they discover our current location, we’ll jump onto the adjacent building so come with me.
Huh? You’re frightened by a jump of this distance? Then would you prefer to get shot here?
I guess it can’t be helped then, cling onto me for dear life, I won’t be responsible if you fall.
Okay, let’s go.
The top of that water tank is nice. I’ll lift you up so grasp onto the ladder, the water tank will become your shield so make sure to hide properly.
Tch. Reinforcements eh.
Oi, get off the ladder immediately, we’ll jump onto a different building.
Even if those men are a useless bunch, they’ll have sight of us from the buildings all the same so it’s better if we no longer remain on the rooftops. We’ll hide inside, and handle them there.
Hmm? What’s wrong? You need me to princess carry you again? But the distance is shorter than last time?
My behavior is strange…?
I’ve certainly been displaying superhuman feats in front of you, but sniping is a delicate job. A tired mental state will reduce my ability to concentrate, even in a situation like this, I’d miss my shots.
Hah? What we spoke of earlier?
Are you an idiot!? Stop worrying about me.
I ain’t shaken and in the first place, the thing about my memories being fake is just your speculation.
More importantly, let’s move first, this isn’t the time to be talking.
I guess I have no choice but to forcibly drag along this annoying princess.
Come on, let’s go.
We’ll enter inside the building, so let’s hurry.
Jeez, there’s no end to them. One shot, one kill, even though that should be expected with me, I’m in this sorry state.
Fuck! I’m undeniably a Macchina covert operative, those memories aren’t lies, Amphisbaena’s Father is my enemy.
Ngh? It’s nothing, so stop worrying about me.
As expected, if I calm down, I should be able to concentrate, since that’s why my accuracy has fallen. There’s no other reason besides that.
I’m not a failure……
Don’t worry, you won’t die unless you get hit by bad luck; the organization wishes to take you back alive.
Ah that’s right, it’s as you’ve said, bringing you along in a gunfight would be a disadvantage, I won’t deny that. However, escaping with you is my will, it upsets me to see that expression of yours.
You really have changed, you’ve been placed into dangerous situations because of me, and been forced into a predicament all the way to my own flat, do you realize that?
Failure means death, that’s the rule of the Mafia.
Oh I see. Speaking of which, you’re an enemy; it’s a strange feeling.
Rather than being scolded for failure, I’m being encouraged. This is the first time it’s happened ever since I was born.
What is it?
What should we do to overcome this situation…? This is a gunfight, so we have no choice but to find the enemies and shot them first.
Out of all things, it seems like they’ve rushed into the same abandoned building.
I’m one person, so the pursuers have the advantage as long as I’m still performing poorly.
Snipers usually move in teams of more than one you see. When dealing with snipers themselves, you provoke missed shots and use that to pinpoint their location.
Because you’re an amateur, you can’t hide your presence so it’s impossible for you to conceal yourself for a long period of time.
Either way, in a drawn-out battle; it’s our loss.
It’d be nice if I could use a cheap trick and provoke a missed shot but…
Hah? Wait a minute, what did you just say? You’ll become decoy?
Oi, are you sane…?!!
You’re an unbelievable woman. That’s enough, now come this way, your post is to be beside me. Got it?
Don’t go off doing things on your own, I hadn’t pulled on the chain just now, you would’ve been shot in the head you know?
Though, thanks to that, all the pursuers came swarming out.
Of course, I’ll shot them down in one blow; that’s what you had in mind when you jumped out no?
There’s no time to be thinking of nonsense.
Track 7: 22 : Blush
Barcelona, Spain 8 p.m. 22 hours have elapsed
Anyhow, it seems like the pursuers have lost, we’ve taken down a considerable number of them after all.
You, come closer this way.
To reach my safe house, we have to mix in with the tourists and the residents and pass through the street of restaurants.
A car’s conspicuous, this way we can blend in with the passersby, plus it also happens to be mealtime.
We’ll pretend to be lovers and walk as though we’re searching for a restaurant.
That dress really suits you, what a nice find.
I look fitting too? I look good regardless of what I wear after all.
Don’t get all serious over a joke, I’ll end up getting embarrassed. Oh but the part about you being cute isn’t a joke though.
Hmm? What? Are you being shy? Your face is bright red you know?
Being shy, being angry, you’re quite the restless one.
It’s in sight.
That building over there is my safe house apartment, it’s the tallest one in the city; perfect for a sniper no?
What’s wrong? Are you scared?
Surely that’s the case, I brought you all this way so that I could kill you.
Say, do you not have thoughts of being able to escape from the current me?
Hmm? I see, you’re bound to me with handcuffs so I guess you can’t simply run away. This ain’t too bad though…
No, it’s nothing.
Come on, let’s go.
Track 8: 25 : Doccia
Barcelona, Spain 11 p.m. 25 hours have elapsed
With this, we have a peace of mind. Would you like to take a shower? It’s best you refresh yourself.
Oh go ahead first if you want to take a shower.
I’d like to take a shower but is it really okay for me to go first? It’s not like I’m particularly tired.
Sheesh, I get it, I get it, why are you such a worrywart?
If you’d prefer, how about we take one together?
You really are amusing.
I understand, in that case, I’ll take one first then.
Is it okay for me to leave your handcuffs as is?
I know, you’ll be outside the bathroom. If you’re gonna peek we should just get in together.
Ow! You hit me seriously on the back, didn’t you?
Jeez, I get it, enter as is. Stupid.
You genuinely are hopelessly good-natured; being concerned about someone like me, and then using handcuffs as an excuse to stay by my side.
Eh? What is it?
I’m strong? What’s with that all of a sudden? There’s no point in complimenting me you know?
Rather than to say I’m strong, you’re trying to say that I bluff no? Don’t be so careless okay?
That said, it doesn’t feel bad to be praised.
I was the same way when I was a child, I was a straightforward person since I was young. Despite being a Macchina, I was oddly praised for having a personality that’s surprisingly optimistic.
I could endure any training if you tell me that I’d become strong afterward.
Even after being thrown out of the institution, I refined my sniping skills so I could wholeheartedly take revenge on Father.
A person can live positively, as long as they have purpose.
And it doesn’t matter how ridiculous that purpose is, such as the result of false memories as an example.
Hah!? WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?!!
Regardless of whether the memories are real or fake, there’s no longer the need to be bound by a dead man? And I should just be free?
THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE YOU KNOW…!!! What do you even understand? Do you realize how many YEARS I’ve dreamt of KILLING YOUR FATHER!?
To me, revenge was my reason for living, that was THE ONLY THING that HELD ME UP!!!
And then to say it’s all a lie, that this hatred is meaningless, there’s no way I’d ACKNOWLEDGE IT THAT EASILY!!!
What? Did you not have a hobby of peeking? If you’re gonna peek then just come on in, that’s what I told you no? Now get in.
Hehe, with this, you’re soaking wet as well, now strip too. Okay?
Settle down, I’ll give you some good memories before you die. Did you forget that I brought you over to this house so I could murder you?
If I apply a bit of strength with my hands onto this thin neck, you’ll die.
And yet, you approached me defenselessly, you’d be killed if you anger me with your words, and then to worry about me constantly; you just die!!!
Hah? I ain’t crying.
Idiot, it’s the shower. If I kill you, would I be freed from my suffering?
Such a thing is……
Track 9: 26 : Bianco
I’m sorry about earlier, are you okay?
I’ve calmed down now.
Isn’t it best if you take a shower? Is your body not cold?
Whether it’s okay for you to open the fridge…? I don’t exactly mind, but there are only drinks in there.
That reminds me, on the way here, we bought some milk. If you want to drink it then drink, you were the one who bought it after all.
Hmm? Oh, I wiped dry with a towel plus I have a change of clothes, so I’m not particularly cold.
Hot milk with liqueur? For me…?
Did you purposefully warm it up for my sake?
Thank you, this is the first time I’ve received something like this from someone.
Are you not gonna drink anything?
Why are you being kind to me?
You can’t leave me alone? Just who do you think I am?
Yes, but…I guess from your perspective I seem like a child. You’re strong, umm, I really am sorry about what happened earlier. Even if you’ve lived an honest life, you’re Father’s daughter all the same; you’re undeniably connected by blood.
Bring out your arms, I’ll remove your handcuffs.
Why are you shocked? You should be genuinely happy about it, thanks to you, I came to realize just how empty I was.
It’s as you’ve said, regardless of whether the memories are real or fake, I shouldn’t be bound by a dead man. And I’ve finally understood that.
You truly are a good woman, it feels like a waste to have you by my side.
I’m going to free you now-
Shit! Get behind me and use me as a shield.
Good grief, a noisy lot came to visit late at night. I ought to entertain these uninvited guests, don’t I?
Now! Let’s get out of this flat before reinforcements come.
Track 10: 30 : Disillusione
Barcelona, Spain 4 a.m. 30 hours have elapsed
Tch, I’ve messed up, I should’ve removed your handcuffs earlier. It’s hard to run right? Are you alright?
Duck down to the right!
In preparations for their negotiations with Amphisbaena, they’ve gotten serious. They’ve brought in the organization’s specialized assassination squadron.
As expected, coming in contact with them is trouble.
But well, if I keep my mind in check, they’re no danger to me.
If you’re caught, you’ll be used as a bargaining chip against Amphisbaena. If I fail now, I’ll sink to the bottom of the ocean, and things will be bleak with Amphisbaena.
Leave things to me, you’re the one person I won’t fail to protect.
There isn’t anything to be worried about, you know of my strength right? I won’t let this become a drawn-out fight.
It seems like the streets of Barcelona are flooded with men.
If that happens, I’ll give instructions, and we’ll fight them head-on.
Yes, that’s right, I’ll bring you to where the boss is. I’ve got things to ask them as well so it’s perfect timing.
I’ll finish them off completely.
Let’s go, follow me.
Take a look, this building is the organization’s headquarters. We’ll storm in from the front.
Sorry but as long as we’ve got these handcuffs on, I’ll be dragging you along.
If I die, hold me up, and do whatever it takes to stay alive. Got it? Though, as long as the combat echelons are situated downtown, the headquarters should be short of hands.
Besides, they never imagined that I would bring you along and leave, so there’s a chance for victory.
I’m simply telling you about the worst-case scenario, so don’t make such a worried expression.
I’ve finished off those who were guarding the entrance. A group of people will ready for combat in response to the sound of gunshots so we’ll head for the back entrance.
Come on, this way.
This is the back entrance to the building, let’s get in.
Oh, the guards are gathering around the building entrance, but to turn their backs to me, how convenient.
I got rid of them so easily, this end for the group who heard the gunshots. The boss is on the first floor, let’s settle this all in one go.
With this, I’ve finished off the guards in front of the boss’ room, what’s left should be the special forces kept beside them.
When you open the door, at the same time, I’ll try to catch them off guard so try and remain in the shadow of the door as much as possible.
Well then, with this, you’re finished.
It’s been a while, Boss. You’ve gotten quite pale during the time we haven’t met, or are you pale because I’m in front of you?
Oh well, either is fine.
There’s no use in using those cheap tricks, you know of my abilities, don’t you? So it’s pointless for you to counterattack.
If I see you make any weird movements, I won’t hesitate to shot off the top of your head.
Surrendering is a smart idea, now call off the men who are pursuing me and this woman immediately.
I’m referring to the combat echelons you’re so proud of.
That said, I’ve already reduced their numbers by quite a lot.
Hehe, it’s good that you’re quick about it. Now then, how about we have a heart-to-heart talk?
Say, Boss, have you been deceiving me?
Don’t try to freight ignorance now, when you picked me up as a child, did you not use some clever tricks on me?
I told you didn’t I? This is a heart-to-heart talk.
Let me ask you again, did you not use any clever tricks on me?
I knew it, so you implanted me with false memories. And then to MOCK ME LIKE THIS?!!
Because of you, my time in life has gone to waste, if so, not even your death could make for it.
What’s this? Now you’re trying to plead for your life. Go on, say it.
I’m not a failure…?
The reason the Macchinas were eliminated was that we were covert operatives? Because we were finished works, our power had to be suppressed?!!
We should’ve never been born into this world, that’s…
Those nurtured to be covert operatives under Project Macchina, to say that about us is…
What’s that supposed to mean?
Shit, as you’ve said, us Macchina are people who shouldn’t exist in this word. After all, we are those who can only survive in the underworld.
However, after being given more care than I’ve ever had until now, I won’t live as a thorn by your side any longer!!!
Oh, just wait a second, I’ll get rid of this noise.
Are you planning to show mercy even towards this type of man? You truly are a good person, to remain steady like that, as expected you’re Father’s daughter. That person’s virtues will one day turn fatal you know?
I, I will kill the ghost that possesses me.
……For the sake of living.
What sorry state, who said I’d finish you off in one shot.
Go live a filthy life in shame.
Track 11: 48 : Filo rosso
Montjuic Hill, Barcelona, Spain 10:00 p.m. 48 hours have elapsed
As expected, people don’t visit a place like this at a time like this, though there are those who lay down on the grass over in that area during the day.
Take a look, Barcelona’s nighttime cityscape ain’t bad right?
The tallest building you see over there is La Sagrada Familia. The top of the spiral happens to be as tall as this hill.
It’s because I’ve always lived here as a child.
I can no longer live in this town, no, this country; I was a little too flashy. Plus there’s nothing binding me anymore.
For starters, I’ll escort you to Italy.
Oh right, is Amphisbaena recruiting people?
I guess so, you’re a hardworking person, aren’t you? So you won’t compel me to.
In that case, how about I be your bodyguard?
What are you laughing for? It seems like you don’t realize just how serious I am.
Heh, I won’t remove these handcuffs until you take me seriously.
These handcuffs might be immediately seized when I join Amphisbaena, but if that happens, I’ll place a new one right away and I’ll shot and destroy the key.
In other words, I have no intention of separating from you.
From now on, always.
Rather than a ghost, I’ve been taken captive by the best woman in the world.
