FX: Slam

Kid: Kobato-chan's gone!

Girl: She's gone with the scary man
Who came to Yomogi Kindergarten before!

Kid: Kobato-chan said to tell you she was leaving for a bit, Kiyokazu-sensei!

I tried to stop her, but Kobato-chan smiled and left!
!!! page 03
Fujimoto: That idiot!

Kobato: Hello, Okiura-san.
Thank you for coming all this way to see me.

Okiura: Well, going to meet a cute girl is fun, so it's no trouble.
It's actually still time for me to be in bed, so I'm kind of sleepy--sorry.
!!! page 04
Kobato: I'm sorry.
It would have been better for me to go to your house or your workplace, I guess.

Okiura: No, that's--Miyata…
The guy with the appendix that time that you saved is called Miyata.

He stopped you, didn't he?

Kobato: Yes.
I told him that it was fine even if it was far away.

Okiura: Because he doesn't know if there's anything at the city office.

Miyata FX: Sudden!

Okiura: He chose a place that's not a locked room, but somewhere with people passing by.
He's worried about you.

FX: Sideways glance

Kobato: Is that so?

Okiura: It is so.
!!! page 05
Okiura: Because I'm a yakuza.

Kobato: I have a request for you, Mr. Okiura Yakuza-san.

Okiura: You really are funny, Kobato-chan.

What is it?
!!! page 06
Kobato: Please don't destroy Yomogi Kindergarten.

Okiura: I can't do that.
!!! page 07
Kobato: Why is that?

Okiura: Because they have to pay back the debt.

Kobato: If it's paid, will you not destroy it?

Okiura: Yeah, that's about right.

But the school has no money, right?
Even if Kiyokazu-chan does his best at part-time jobs, the amount is impossible.

On the other hand--

Okiura: Will you do something, Kobato-chan?

FX: Slam

Blondie: Kiyokazu?!

FX: Whirling

Blondie: What's with the hurry?

FX: Footstep

FX: Footsteps

Fujimoto: You haven't seen her, have you?!

Blondie: "Her"?

FX: Grab

Fujimoto: Her!

She's silly and foolish, and her drawings are terrible.
Well, she sings nice, but--!

But she has no common sense and no idea about bodily harm or anything!
!!! page 10
Blondie: Calm down a bit.

Do I know this person?

Fujimoto: You met her, didn't you!

Blondie: Do you mean Hanato Kobato-chan?

Fujimoto: Yes!

Blondie: Oh,
That girl.

You upset her, and she ran?

Fujimoto: NO!
!!! page 11
Fujimoto: That idiot.
She's sticking her neck into Okiura's business!

Blondie: That Okiura who's Sayaka-san's former husband?

Fujimoto: …Yeah.

Blondie: When did you lose sight of her?

FX: Adjusting

Fujimoto: The kids said they just saw her go somewhere with one of the yakuza from Okiura's place…
!!! page 12
Blondie: You don't know their destination?

FX: Beep beep

Fujimoto: …No.

Blondie: Places they're likely to go…
If you know, don't ask me.

Fujimoto: …

Blondie: Kobato-chan is cute enough to stand out.
At this time of day one of the students might have seen her before they went to campus.

Fujimoto: Why…

Blondie: What?
!!! page 13
Fujimoto: You--
Did you meet her again after that?

Blondie: Sadly, it was just the once.

Fujimoto: Then why!?

Blondie: I'm searching because you're making that face, Kiyokazu.

She's important to you, right?

Fujimoto: I…!

FX: Swiftly

Blondie: Searching for Kobato-chan comes first right now.
