Chapter 8


- Does the defense have anything to add? (judge)Bookmark here

Ryusaki is playing with his pencil without answering the question.Bookmark here

-I think we have nothing more to ask, Your Honor. (Souta)Bookmark here

This guy is a kid. He got sulky and now doesn't want to talk anymore. How old are you Ryu to act like that?Bookmark here

-Now I will dismiss Miss Lourdes and call the second witness of today. You may come in. (judge)Bookmark here

The second witness who entered was Saiko's stylist Blair.Bookmark here

-Very well, before we start with the questions, I would like to ask your proximity to the victim in question. (judge)Bookmark here

-Saiko and I were nothing more than two souls. Next? I can't say for sure, but we talk to each other a lot about our lives. (Blair)Bookmark here

After saying that, Blair looks around the courtroom as if looking for something, until her eyes find Ryusaki, then he smiles and waves at him.-Ughh. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Very well, Mr. Hiroshi, I think you would like to start by asking the questions. (judge)Bookmark here

-If the two little boys don't mind. (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Whatever for us, in any case I doubt you would leave us... (Souta)Bookmark here

-Very well then! (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

Hey, wait until I finish talking.Bookmark here

-Cough cough. Mr Blair, you told us they told secrets to each other, correct? So by any chance Miss Saiko said something personal about her to you that no one else knows? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Actually... yes she did. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Excellent. Now could you detail what was said? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-She said someone called her to meet her. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Could you tell us who this person was? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Secret. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Where would she meet this person? (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Secret. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Sir, if you know something you should tell us. (judge)Bookmark here

-Now your honor, but I believe that a lady always has some secrets that cannot be told even after death. (Blair)Bookmark here

-DON'T PLAY WITH ME BASTARD!! (?)Bookmark here

-Who said that? (judge)Bookmark here

The man who was screaming in the middle of the court was Saiko's father beside his wife who was in bed crying.Bookmark here

-Well, uncle, how are you? (Blair)Bookmark here


-I'm sorry sir, but I know that if Saiko were here, she would ask me not to say anything. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Don't f*** me... why?... (Saiko's father)Bookmark here

Her father started crying at that point.Bookmark here

-I know this is very sad sir. But don't worry I have a wife and daughter too, they are with you in the middle of the court and I can completely understand your pain. That's why I'm going to make this bastard who killed your daughter go to jail. You don't need proof for this young man's words, I already know that Mr. Souta Watanabe is the culprit behind this. He said she needed to meet someone, that someone was Souta and the place she would go was in the alley where he killed her. There is no doubt behind this. I, Hiroshi Ideki, discovered the truth behind it all. (Hiroshi)Bookmark here

-Ohhhhh, this is my husband. What a proud man. Aren't you proud of your father too? (Hiroshi's wife)Bookmark here

-Damn, mom, why did I have to come here too? (Hiroshi's daughter)Bookmark here

-Damn, that way I'll be convicted. Ryu! There's nothing we can do? We know that the person Saiko was going to meet was not me but her lover, besides the place they went was on the beach, is there no way we can make him admit it? (Souta)Bookmark here

-I think that's impossible. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Why? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Imagine what would happen if people knew that Saiko was seeing someone married. Everyone would offend her for doing this and some would even hate her. That's why he won't say anything, so his friend won't suffer even after she's dead. Besides, if that happened her lover's life would also end, which must be the last thing Saiko would want, so he's respecting those feelings and not saying anything. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Damn it! (Souta)Bookmark here

-But it doesn't matter, whether he spoke or not, it wouldn't do any good. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Why? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Because they would probably call Mr. Kurosaki here to investigate the situation and he would probably say it was a lie. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Are you sure he wouldn't help us? (Souta)Bookmark here

-I couldn't tell if he would help or not before, but after what I did to him, it's almost certain he wouldn't help us. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

True, Ryu spilled the entire bowl of ramen on top of him in the middle of the restaurant. If we think about it at this point, I don't think he would help us at all.Bookmark here

-But I think there's still something I can do. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Is there anything you can do that can turn this situation in our favor? (Souta)Bookmark here

-It's just a bet, but it's the only thing I can think of right now, so I'll risk everything I have on it. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here look so cool. I just don't tell you this because it would probably go to your head too much, but Ryu, you're the man.-I wish the defense could ask some questions now for the witness. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Granted, you may proceed. (judge)Bookmark here

-So... everything you said was the truth? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-I didn't say anything I hadn't seen. (Blair)Bookmark here

Ryusaki started asking questions very quickly.Bookmark here

-So, you're not lying? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Not. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Under no circumstances? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Only the truth? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes. (Blair)Bookmark here

-With nothing else? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes. (Blair)Bookmark here

-Who's lying says what? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-What? (Blair)Bookmark here

-That's it, he said “what”. Your Honor, the witness is lying. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here that was your big bet? I really don't regret not telling you that Ryu.Bookmark here

-Denied. Ahhhhhhhh. I would really like the defense prosecution to stop joking around during the trial. Questions for the second witness are over. (judge)Bookmark here

-Hmm, looks like I can go home. Ryu, if you have time, why don't you come visit me sometime. I can even comfort you for having lost your friend to jail. (Blair)Bookmark here
