Objection

Waiting on the chair since 6 am was Akemi. She arrived an hour early every day, that shows how serious she was about her work, and arriving late, showing how immature and irresponsible she was.Bookmark here

-IT´S SHOW TIME!! [IT'S SHOW TIME!!] (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Could you stop opening the door so hard? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Which? But if I don't, it won't be exciting. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Ryu, we just got to work, what's so exciting about it? Besides, we're late. (Souta)Bookmark here

-You guys are running late. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-I'm sorry, I was waiting for this idiot to wake up. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Very well, we've wasted too much time, let's continue our investigations. But first, Ryu, please don't hide any information, I believe you know how important it is for us to know what you're hiding. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Don't worry, it was never my intention to hide anything, I just thought that time was not ideal to say that, but right now the information will be much more efficient. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-What information is this? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Pay attention to the fat one called Yamato. It was incredibly strange even for me to meet a boss of such a big company in a common mall. What the hell was he doing there, right when Maki was there? in any case this meeting hindered the investigation in one day, because of that meeting I found almost nothing. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

At the center location, Maki-chan and her butler were waiting for Ryusaki beside an ice cream parlor.Bookmark here

-Hey! Maki-chan!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Tsk, he really came. YOU ARE LATE!! (Maki)Bookmark here

-Forgive me your highness, a worm like me making you waste your time waiting for him. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-It doesn't matter, get up soon and get out of that humiliating position. (Maki)Bookmark here

-Mr Ryusaki, we're going to the studio now to do a commercial. That's why I think we'd better hurry. (bedroom)Bookmark here

-OK!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Arriving at the studio, Maki goes to the dressing room to change.Bookmark here

-Hey what's he doing? (extra 1)Bookmark here

-He's a pervert. (extra 2)Bookmark here

Ryusaki was leaning against the door trying to hear Maki-chan changing.Bookmark here

-He knows she's only 14, right? (extra 3)Bookmark here

-Someone call the police! (extra 4)Bookmark here

A man approaches Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-Hey you!! (?)Bookmark here

Damn they found me. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-You really have some very peculiar tastes. (?)Bookmark here

The man starts doing what Ryusaki was doing.Bookmark here

-Who are you? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Damn it! The other pervert joined him. (extra 2)Bookmark here

-My name is Daniel. I work as an event manager and stylist at Maki-chan. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-So you're the one who makes her wear those inappropriate clothes? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

The two begin to stare at each other with serious faces, as if they are going to go into battle.Bookmark here

-Yes It's really me. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-I understand. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki raises his right hand and places it on top of Daniel's shoulder.Bookmark here

-THANK YOU DANIEL, YOU REALLY ARE A GOOD PERSON!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Daniel starts to cry.Bookmark here

-I was right, you really have good young taste. (Daniel)Bookmark here

It seemed that a bond stronger than friendship had been created between the two.Bookmark here

-Hey... what are the two worms doing!!? (Maki)Bookmark here

They look up towards the door that had been opened without them noticing and see Maki-chan making a scary face. After that she closes the door with everything causing her to hit them both, leaving them on the ground in a lot of pain.Bookmark here

-Hunf, worms. (Maki)Bookmark here

-Hahahaha she was really mad. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Yes, what a scene... (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Wonderful! (Ryusaki and Daniel)Bookmark here

Halfway through the trip in Akemi's car, Souta feels a shiver down his spine.Bookmark here

-What was it? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-I had a bad feeling about something. It is as if two forces have come together and are about to destroy the harmony of the world. (Souta)Bookmark here

-What exactly are you talking about? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-I don't know, but whatever happened isn't a good thing. (Souta)Bookmark here

In the middle of recording the commercial.Bookmark here

-So these are the student clothes that Maki-chan will wear for the next commercial? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes. Hehehehe. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Amazing, can't wait. Hehehehe. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hey you two!! Stop talking in the middle of the recording, you are distracting me. (Maki)Bookmark here

Ahhhhhhhh, Maki-chan dressed in strawberry is extremely mad at us. So cute... (Ryusaki and Daniel)Bookmark here

At the time of the recording break, Ryusaki and Daniel sat at the same table to eat.Bookmark here

-So you mean you're in the middle of an investigation? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Yes, we're looking for the culprit. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-But where are the other two partners you said you have? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-They're on Mr. Yamato's tail. They said there was something very suspicious about him and they wouldn't leave him. Can you believe he showed up in the middle of the mall yesterday while Maki was shopping? This was very strange and completely ended the investigation. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-That's really weird. Why was such an important person walking through an ordinary mall? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-It is not!? Really really weird. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-I hope you can solve this case soon. Whoever is behind this I will never forgive him, Maki-chan is just a child and yet he blamed it all on her. How does he manage to do this? I can't forgive him! (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Don't worry. As I said we're on Yamato's tail, so soon, we'll find evidence against him and arrest him. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-So you mean it was him? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Yes, as I said, my friends are very suspicious of him and they usually don't get their intuition wrong, it's only a matter of time before we arrest him. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Daniel's phone starts ringing.Bookmark here

-Excuse me. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-No problem. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hello? Hmmmmm, I see. Okay. I'll hang up now. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Who was? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-A friend of mine who works in a foundry house. I wanted to know how I was doing. I'm sorry, I ended up spoiling the whole vibe of your sentence. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Hahahahahaha. Don't worry about it, I don't really care about that stuff. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hey! You two are really getting along really well lately. (Maki)Bookmark here

-Ooohhh Maki-chan!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-So you discovered something? (Maki)Bookmark here

-That you look amazingly great in school uniforms. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-About the investigation, idiot!! (Maki)Bookmark here

-Ahh, actually I don't think I can find anything here. The last place the culprit would want to be was by his side, as that would make it easier to frame him. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-So you really didn't come with the intention of discovering something?! (Maki)Bookmark here

-Hahahahahahaha. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Anyway, let's go, I've finished doing what I had to do here, now I need to go somewhere else. (Maki)Bookmark here

-Ahhnnn? But are you already leaving Maki-chan? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Let's go! (Maki)Bookmark here

-Completely ignored. Ahhhhhhhhh. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Well, I have to go now. Don't worry, we're definitely going to put that fat guy behind bars. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes! I count on you! (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Ryu-worm! Will you make me wait for you one more time?? (Maki)Bookmark here

-Me pardons Maki-chan!! I'm on my way! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki says goodbye to Daniel and runs off until he reaches Maki-chan's side.Bookmark here

-So what exactly did you mean by “putting that fat guy behind bars”? (Maki)Bookmark here

-Ahhh. About that, you should just ignore the things I talk to Mr Daniel. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hmmmmmm. (Maki)Bookmark here

In Souta and Akemi's investigation, they were hiding in a bush looking at Yamato who was talking to some of his fellow businessmen.Bookmark here

-Are you sure it's good to hide inside a bush? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-What would you suggest? (Souta)Bookmark here

-That we sat at the tables drinking coffee pretending we were just enjoying the moment while we investigate. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Well maybe this really would be better than sticking yourself in the middle of all these branches. But when I thought about what Ryu would do in such a situation, that was the first idea that popped into my head. (Souta)Bookmark here

-He really doesn't hit his head well... (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Did you just realize it? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Hey look he's saying goodbye!! (Akemi)Bookmark here

-He's coming here, quickly enters the bush. (Souta)Bookmark here

Yamato goes through the bush without noticing that there were two people inside and continues walking to his car.Bookmark here

-Looks like we weren't noticed. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Yes, but that didn't do any good. The only thing he does is buy a few things in stores and chat with friends. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Don't get relaxed yet. There is a reason why Ryu has asked us to be on the lookout for him. Maybe he knows he might be under investigation, so he's pretending to act like nothing's happening. We cannot be discouraged now. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-OK!! (Souta)Bookmark here

Souta and Akemi follow in Yamato's footsteps. Meanwhile, the car that Ryu, Maki and their butler were in drives towards a huge modern house.-Wow!! Is this your Maki house? She is amazing. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes... (Maki)Bookmark here

For some reason Maki-chan who was firm and arrogant, started to get a more tense and fearful posture.Bookmark here

-We're here, miss. (Butler)Bookmark here

As soon as they got out of the car, they walked to the door and went inside.Bookmark here

-Excuse!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Miss, it seems that your mother left to resolve some important matters and will not return today. (Butler)Bookmark here

-OK. (Maki)Bookmark here

Maki goes upstairs to her room leaving Ryu alone with his butler.-She really doesn't look good. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Miss... no... would you like to watch something? (Butler)Bookmark here

He turns the living room TV on to the news channel for Ryu to be distracted.Bookmark here

-WOWOOOO!!! Look at the size of this screen. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

"-It seems that the thieves known as "brilliant robbers", stole yet again another precious metal and this time it was in an absurd amount." (journalist 1)Bookmark here

“-The precious metal they stole was the central bank's gold and what scares the most is the amount stolen, nothing more than 3 tons. The police are still investigating the possible whereabouts of these bandits and the gold.” (journalist 2)Bookmark here

-Fiooo! It really is a lot of money. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki changes the channel.Bookmark here

“-Oh my love. [Oh my love]” (girl)Bookmark here

“-Shiuuuu. We'll let our mouths speak for us... [Let's let our mouths speak for us]” (boy)Bookmark here

The couple starts kissing.Bookmark here

-Blewww. Isn't there anything fun playing here on TV these days? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki looks back, it seems that the butler is no longer in the room, he has left to prepare breakfast. Ryusaki then goes upstairs to see Maki.-It's a very long corridor. Where is Maki's room? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki walked until he heard a sound coming out of one of the doors, he then put his ear to be able to hear what was happening.Bookmark here

-Don't worry mom. (Maki)Bookmark here

It was Maki-chan, looks like she was talking to her mom on the phone.Bookmark here

-No, no, no. You don't have to worry about anything! I promise I'll work this out myself, so don't be upset. Yes, I'm sorry. Yes, it's my fault, but I promise... yes, I get it, I'll stop apologizing and do something about it. Mom knows something, today I went to the ice cream parlor to taste the ice cream that we... Ahhhh, she hung up. (Maki)Bookmark here

After that Ryusaki could only hear a very low sound from Maki's room, it sounded like she was crying and muffling the sound with her pillow.It's been 30 minutes since Maki spoke to her mother. A strong storm had started. She went down to the kitchen where her butler was.Bookmark here

-Is the coffee ready yet? (Maki)Bookmark here

-Yes, as you asked. (Butler)Bookmark here

-Where's that idiot? (Maki)Bookmark here

-I also haven't found Mr Ryusaki since I started preparing the coffee. Where could he have gone? (Butler)Bookmark here

In Maki's studio, Daniel was storing some power cables that had been left there.Bookmark here

-Hey!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yes, may I help? OHHHHHH! WHO ARE YOU? HOW DID YOU GET IN HERE? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-What are you talking about? It's me, Ryu. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Uwfaaaaa, what a scare you gave me. I didn't recognize you, what happened to you? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-I was walking back here when a storm fell out of nowhere and I just... ATCHUMMMM!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hahahahaha, you really are a quirky Ryu guy. Come with me. (Daniel)Bookmark here

Daniel starts drying Ryusaki's hair with a blow dryer and hands him a towel to dry off.Bookmark here

-Thanks Daniel. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-It was nothing. But tell me, why did you come back here? I thought I went with Maki to a place. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-It seems that no one there can answer me, so I came back here to ask you something. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-And what would it be? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-How is Maki-chan's relationship with her mother? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Hmmmmm, I would say it's not very good, Maki debuted her career about 4 years ago and I never saw her mother appearing in any rehearsals or concerts. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-So it looks like your mother doesn't pay any attention to her. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yeah... I bet it's hard for her. (Daniel)Bookmark here

Ryusaki after drying off gets up and goes to a wall to support himself while he thinks.Bookmark here

-Hmmm? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

Ryusaki found something strange about the wall.Bookmark here

-What was Ryu? (Daniel)Bookmark here

-It doesn't look like the wall was weaker than I thought, is it thin? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Neither, these columns are thick as hell. (Daniel)Bookmark here

Ryusaki knocks a little on the wall.TUC TUC.Bookmark here

-Looks like she's hollow. Are the rest of the walls like that too? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Not as far as I know. (Daniel)Bookmark here

-Well never mind. I have to go now, it's almost night. See you tomorrow Daniel. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Ohhh! Even Ryu. (Daniel)Bookmark here

Returning to Akemi's company, Ryusaki enters the room where Souta and Akemi were waiting for him.Bookmark here

-Hey Ryu! How it was? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Do you have anything to eat? I'm starving. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-DO NOT IGNORE ME LIKE THIS YOU FUDID*! (Souta) Bookmark here

-I can ask them to bring some pizza here. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-YOU ALSO, DON'T FIT HIS LIP! (Souta)Bookmark here

-Calm down, calm down Souta. I'm not planning on hiding anything. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Yeah, so why don't you tell us what you found? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Ahhhhhh, laziness. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-YOUR... (Souta)Bookmark here

-Telling you or not won't change the result. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-So you've already found out who's the culprit? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-It's probably the same one I'm suspecting. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-That's why you asked us to stay on Yamato's tail? (Souta)Bookmark here

-Yes, I needed you to keep an eye on him. So what did you find? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Nothing, the guy didn't do anything suspicious to get us to accuse him. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-I see... (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-So you're going to ask us to stay on his tail? (Souta)Bookmark here

-No, there is a more urgent matter and I will need help, I will cancel my meeting with Maki. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-MEETING??? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Relax, I bet it was just about the investigation, if it was really a date he would never cancel. But then, what was that subject you will need our help. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Miss the pizza arrived. (employee)Bookmark here

-Oops! Thanks! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Thanks. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-So bow wa I balking... [So how was I talking] (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-EAT FIRST BEFORE TRYING TO SPEAK! (Souta)Bookmark here

-Uughh. First, I need information about a case, Akemi first I need information about the "shining bandits" case and their recent theft of the gold bars. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Unfortunately I don't know anything detailed about it. But I know someone I'm with in high school who can help us. (Akemi)Bookmark here

After waiting for a while, the person finally arrives.Bookmark here

-And then? What do you want? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

Ryusaki bends down to talk to him.Bookmark here

-So we're waiting for your father, do you know if he'll be late or something? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Buaaahhahahahahahahaha! (Souta)Bookmark here

-Ryu... actually this is the person I spoke to. (Akemi)Bookmark here

Ryusaki in shock looks back and Akemi nods his head confirming that it was really him, then Ryusaki stretches his arms and lifts Yosuke up into the air.Bookmark here

-OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING??? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Amazing! You're like an Umpa-lumpa only without the clothes. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-You son of a b****! Did you call me here just to make fun of my height? You will see I will kill you all. (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Actually we really need your help with something. (Akemi)Bookmark here

Akemi explains the situation to Yosuke.Bookmark here

-I see, so you're after these guys. They really are a problem. (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Do you know where they could be? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-An advice for you is not to get involved with them. They are highly dangerous, I learned they were mercenaries before they got into this business of stealing precious ores. But since you don't look like you're going to give up, I'll give you some information. They apparently robbed a corner store for a large diamond. (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-I see, so if we go there we can find clues. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Most likely. (Yosuke)Bookmark here

Ryusaki stretches out a measuring tape and places it next to Yosuke.Bookmark here

-Hey! What do you think you are doing? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-How can so much information fit in just 70 centimeters tall?? (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-You arrogant bastard! Hey Akemi, is this really the person you said was an amazing genius who would surprise the world? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Hmmm, you can trust me, I know Ryu will impress the world with his intelligence. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Oh shit, I can't make it go down. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Just press here. (Souta)Bookmark here

Fiuuuuuuuuu PaawBookmark here

-Aiaiai tapped my finger. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Idiot, you were the one who left your finger there. (Souta)Bookmark here

-Really, your intelligence is impressive, I've never seen a person so dumb. Are you sure you didn't make a mistake? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-I... I still can't say for sure... (Akemi)Bookmark here
