Chapter 17


The trial was moving forward. The defense had not presented any evidence to guarantee Maki-chan's innocence. Akemi was starting to break out in a cold sweat, that way, things wouldn't end well.Bookmark here

-Very well. Now we go to the last witness in the case. Mr Yamato, you may enter. (judge)Bookmark here

The last person to give a statement was the owner of the company that hired Maki-chan. He walked calmly down the hall and sat in the chair.Bookmark here

-Good morning everybody. Maki... (Yamato)Bookmark here

He nods at her, however she was already totally frustrated with all the confusion he caused and didn't show any emotions during the trial. She didn't even make her annoyed face when she saw Mr. Yamato.Bookmark here

-Very well, we will start with the defense now. If you have anything to ask, please. (judge)Bookmark here

-Thank you, Your Honor! (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Get smart with this guy. (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Yes. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Hello Miss Akemi, I knew a lot about you from my friends. I heard you started a law firm when you were 20, that's really surprising. (Yamato)Bookmark here

-Thank you very much, but I would like to focus on the interrogation. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Okeyyy! (Yamato)Bookmark here

-Do you know who released this information? To gain access to your company's data and discover corruption within it, this person has to be well trained. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Not. (Yamato)Bookmark here

-Do you know someone inside her with enough skills to do this? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-If I said I wouldn't be lying. Our company really has highly trained employees, after all they are the best. However, I don't think any of them have done anything. (Yamato)Bookmark here

Damn no matter what I ask, he just won't say anything that would compromise him or his company. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-The defense has nothing more to say. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Very well, then the other side can start asking the questions. (judge)Bookmark here

-Thanks. Mr Yamato, tell me, what are the reasons that would lead Maki-chan to commit such an act? (attorney)Bookmark here

-Well, there are countless, you know... she's just a child, no one would suspect her, mainly because she's so dear to the public. Did you know that many blamed me saying I was responsible and was using her? Do you believe that? Quite frankly. Besides, why would I do that? It just dirty the name of my dear company. This heartless person thought he was going to escape, but I know the truth. She has family problems, I bet she thought that if she gathered so much money she could win some affection from her parents, after all, children think small. (Yamato)Bookmark here

-That worm! (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-He's putting all the blame on her so he can get away with no problem. (Akemi)Bookmark here

After Yamato's speech, the crowd started to dialogue and reflect on it. Even those who didn't believe she could have done it began to lean the other way.Bookmark here

-On second thought, it's strange that she doesn't have any proof to prove her innocence... (person 1)Bookmark here

-Yes! I think that too. To think that a child would take advantage of your innocent face to do such an act. (person 2)Bookmark here

As people talked, Maki sank deeper and deeper into a lake of unhappiness. It got to the point where she believed that what people were saying was the truth. She wanted to erase his presence.Bookmark here

-Looks like the case is almost over. The defense has not presented any evidence, while the other side has some factors that lead to believe that Maki actually committed such a crime. Miss Maki-chan, would you have anything to say before the decision is made? (judge)Bookmark here

-No... I have nothing to say... because I'm really to blame. (Maki)Bookmark here

What? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-MS! WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT... (butler)Bookmark here

-DIE! (person 1)Bookmark here


Hahahahahahahaha. It's over, bye, bye Maki-chan. (Yamato)Bookmark here

Everyone in this world hates me, my parents, my fans and even those who tried to defend me must hate me for making them waste their time with me. (Maki)Bookmark here

-As the person in question ended up admitting guilt, I think there is nothing more to discuss... (judge)Bookmark here

I just want to disappear... (Maki)Bookmark here

-I declare Maki Hatsui ... (judge)Bookmark here

That way, I'll never be a hindrance to anyone again... (Maki)Bookmark here

-OBJECTIONNN!!! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here


- Calm down, calm down, your honor. They are with me. They are part of Maki-chan's defense. (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Damn it. I forgot my suit and tie again. HEY OLD MAN! PASS THE SUIT OVER HERE! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Which? But, but... (old innocent)Bookmark here

-WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO SOON! (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

The frightened old man took off his suit and tie and gave it to Ryusaki.Bookmark here

-So this is your lawyer in action?? (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Well... at least he's wearing pants... (Akemi)Bookmark here

- HOW DOES HE ENTER WITHOUT ONE?! (Yosuke)Bookmark here

-Sir... (judge)Bookmark here

-Call me Ryusaki. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-I understand. Could you tell us what you have to say? Since now you've got all the attention in the world by making such a fuss. (judge)Bookmark here

-Of course! But before that. Get that fat guy out of here. (Ryusaaki)Bookmark here

-Which? Who do you think you're talking to? (Yamato)Bookmark here

-I really wouldn't be able to say anything if he stays here, because his face makes me anxious. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-Oh you... (Yamato)Bookmark here

-Very well, we can do this. After all he was just a witness, as he has already said what he had to say there is no reason for him to remain here. (judge)Bookmark here

-Ryu... why are you... (Maki)Bookmark here

Ryu looks towards Maki and opens a huge smile.Bookmark here

-Very well let's start this party, but first I need to call a witness to help me. (Ryusaki)Bookmark here

-And who would this witness be? (judge)Bookmark here

Ryusaki ends up calling Daniel and pasting him to answer some questions.Bookmark here

-Who is he? (Akemi)Bookmark here

-Ryu said it was a friend he made when he was with Maki. He said that he was as in love with her as he was and that he would definitely help us. (Souta)Bookmark here

-I see... (Akemi)Bookmark here

That moment was of great apprehension for everyone, this was the last chance to get around the situation. It would all depend on what Ryusaki asked.Bookmark here
