Part 43: The DJ's Swansong - EndNo Music.
Oh, you've just missed him, Justin. He went home a few minutes ago.
Lucy is noticeably more comfortable with Justin now than what she was back in case three.
He's got a cheek, that lad, leaving before his boss!
This is a Japanese cultural thing; workers are not expected to leave work before their boss does, the idea being that the boss will only leave when there is no further work to be done. In England, there is generally no stigma attached to leaving work before your boss does.
Don't blow your top, Justin.
Ah, you're here too, are you, Al?
Probably under the desk again.
Of course I am. This is my office, after all.
What happened to going home ill?
Your home, more like.
You mean a Jekyll-and-Hyde moment? With the Prof's dark side?
If that's how you want to describe it.
I hadn't realised you could change so easily.
It's been a long time, Justin. In fact...Yes, our paths haven't crossed since Radmond Castle, have they?
I couldn't forget that if I wanted to.
You two worked together?
Except it still isn't solved, is it?
I really don't know what you mean.
Fine. If you don't want to discuss it, let's forget it. Leave us alone.
Heh heh heh. As you wish. You know how to find me if you need me again.
I'd be glad to show up for my old partner any time. Any time at all.
Ee, Prof, are you alright?
Yes. Thank you, Lucy. I'm fine.
Did you hear him? 'Any time' he said.
Did you hear that, Al?
Yes, I heard.
That's a strange topic to suddenly bring up, given the current circumstances.
This is...my problem, Justin.
What, you think you can manage him on your own?
I'm supposing Justin is still referring to Alfiendi here?
In additional to people not realising that Lucy has an accent, and thinking that the game was badly translated, I've also seen quite a few people that have supposedly played this game refer to Alfendi as Professor Layton's brother.
Well, if that's how you feel, I'll keep my nose out of it.
Right, I'm off. I wish you all the best, Al. I just hope things don't turn against you.
You needn't concern yourself with it at the moment, Lucy.
But it's bothering me. It's all so intriguing.
You'll find out some time, whether you want to or not.
Hint post coming tomorrow.
