Watanuki: Now, that's…!!

Girl: It's the sound of jumping off.

Watanuki: …Huh?
!!! page 03
Girl: It's the sound of the person by whom I was left here jumping off that balcony.

Watanuki: ?!

Girl: Earlier, before you came, they went out onto it.
"It's no good anymore," they said.
!!! page 04
Watanuki: …What was no good?

Girl: Being with me.

Watanuki: Being with--
That they were behaving violently?

Girl: No.

Being with me,

They became afraid.
!!! page 05
Watanuki: Afraid?
Aren't you, being hit, way more frightened?

Girl: I'm not frightened.

Even if I'm hit, that will not change.

I'm injured, but I will heal.

When time passes.

Watanuki: But it's painful until it heals,
And that time must be…

Girl: The time is fine.

Girl: Because I do not age.

Girl: That person was 62 years old.

When we met they were about 40.

At the beginning, they were pleased
That I would never change.

But since I didn't change despite decades passing,
It seems they grew frightened.
Acted violently, hit me.

If their fear had gotten better by hitting me, that might have been good.

Girl: If we could have been together.

It doesn't
Matter any more.

Even if I don't act normally.

Watanuki: What on…
Are you…

Girl: What indeed.
I feel that I was human, but--

But I've forgotten.

Since I've lived a very long time.

Watanuki: The crimson…


Girl: I wonder why it is.
The person who lives with me dies,

And, like this, a pearl is born.
!!! page 14
Watanuki: That's…

I think that's because you're sad.

Since you can't be with the person you were with for so long.

Girl: Yes.

I can still
…feel the thing called sadness.

FX: Slowly

Watanuki: Is this okay?

Girl: I promise.

It should be fine for you.

Since you too

…Are the same as me, aren't you?
