Part 230: Addendum XIX: Lovesickness

Addendum XIX: Lovesickness

Time for the sequel to my Christmas nightmare, Valentine’s Day!

Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)

How’s it feel to be free? You better come see me… Or I’ll just go to your place tomorrow.

Just kidding. I just wanted to see you. Can I come over tomorrow after work?

I want to talk to you in person, so are you free tomorrow? I can make the trip to meet you somewhere if you want.

I’d like to see you. Do you have any plans for tomorrow evening?

I have so much I want to talk to you about. I’d love to see you…

It’ll be part two of the celebration for your release from prison. Just me and you. There’s something I want to give you too. Is it OK if I come by your place?

I’d like to spend some time with you tomorrow. Is it OK if I stop by Leblanc?

Good night!

Come on, let’s go to bed. You’re working at the shop from tomorrow onward, right?

Music: Break it Down (Elp Version)

Don’t you have anything exciting happening? I mean, you’ve been here nearly a whole year. Y’know, when I was young, hoo boy…

Music: Sweet

Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

This is, to my knowledge, the single acknowledgment of Morgana’s in the entire game to you dating Ann. Which sucks, because I really want to rub it in that little cat face of his.

Isn’t it heavy? I filled it with love.

Um… I don’t wanna go home today.

So, can I sit next to you?

You’re going home next month, aren’t you? Does that mean this is gonna be a long-distance relationship?


I already waited this long for you to get released… so I guess long-distance is nothing.

I’ll smack you if you say I’m too heavy…

Like the Christmas dates, the Valentine’s dates will all follow the same basic formula. If you only care about some, just scroll through for those. Or again, just skip this one. That works too.

I’ll come around when the store closes. Well, good night.

Sorry to barge in like this…

Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

...Thank you for agreeing to spend this time with me.

I considered making it by hand… Would you have preferred that?

Still… I’m glad we’re able to be here together. I wanted to give my first Valentine’s Day chocolate… directly to you.

...I’ve been studying hard. I’m looking to apply to law school. My dream of becoming a police commissioner remains the same.

That’s a shame.

I know I can do it… especially with your help.

Um, can I sit next to you…?

You’re going back next month, right? What will happen… to us?

You know, there was a lot I wanted to say, but none of it matters now that we’re here together. After all that waiting, living in different places doesn’t seem like such a big deal.

I’m not asking too much… am I?

Well, if you insist… I’ll see you tomorrow. Good night.

Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

Oh, no… It’s not like I’m trying to lecture you… The reason I’m here today is…

Through my attempt to make that… I realized… my lack of talent.

I need to devote myself to learning how to do things… other than shogi.

Um… People still call me the Phony Princess. I’m quite the villain now. But to be honest, I like it better than being treated like an idol. It’s really freeing. As long as I have a board and playing pieces… I can go anywhere with shogi… So my goal is to be the best professional shogi player wherever I may be… Do you understand what I’m trying to say?


Oh… that’s troubling… I would like to sit next to you.

You’re going home next month, yes? Thinking about you leaving, I…

...I apologize for discussing such a heavy topic when we haven’t seen each other for so long… Well, I was able to wait for you until you were discharged, so living apart won’t be difficult… (on the verge of tears) I can’t seem to conceal my true emotions… from you.

Ohhh… You should’ve just told me. Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

Huh!? What do you know!?

Your stay at the reformatory isn’t something that can be pardoned by an ex-post facto report, you know.


By the way, do you know why I stopped by…?

I ordered it from overseas. There’s nothing in it that could harm you.

That’s both reassuring and suspicious!

It’s been a while since the last time we did this.

That new medicine, for that girl I told you about, has been working really well. And it’s all thanks to my little guinea pig.

What do you wanna talk about…?

I see… Can I sit next to you?

Not legally!

So, you’re leaving next month, huh? I think it’d be a bit too far for me to make a house call.

I was never really into younger guys…

Coulda fooled me!

...I won’t take no for an answer.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.

Ohhh… You should’ve just told me. Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

About you being a prisoner, and you being able to return. However, I’m shocked about this, even though I knew about it… Do you know what today is?

It has your lucky color and number.

I had to wait in a really long line to buy it, and a girl stomped on my foot on her way out… But it kind of made me… happy. I’m still telling fortunes, but I’ve cut all ties with the chairman.

I’ve been getting thanked a lot more lately. Even by the people who receive bad fortunes! Sometimes I feel like all my time is consumed with counseling other people about their relationships. But a fortune teller is allowed to be happy too, right?


...Huh? (sad pause) I’d like to sit next to you…

And I’m a little scared to know the answer… You’re going home next month, correct? Is there anything I can do for you…?

...We have to think this through. I’m here with you.

It’s that I wish this moment would last forever…

See you tomorrow!

...Sorry. Are you busy?

Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

You really do things your own way, huh…? You at least know why I came to see you today, right?

It’s a limited edition that was really expensive. I had to wait in a long line for it, you know.

You don’t seem to understand the concept of a “gift.”

...So apparently, visiting hours are only allowed for people at the fiancee level. So if you hadn’t been released, then I would’ve had to keep that gift for myself.

...Well, I guess you could say that. ...My publisher was going to reassign me to the political department. They said it was because I did such a good job contributing to the sales numbers… I’m gonna return the favor one of these days, all right?


I see… Can I sit next to you?

You’re going home next month, right? What should I do…?

Seriously… Oh, I am totally pressuring you-- Sorry about that. Well, after all that’s happened, I’m used to waiting. And… you are still in high school.

You have to remind us, huh?

I’m gonna make sure that you never forget about me…

And last up, Kawakami again.

I look forward to seeing you tomorrow, Master. ♥

Here, I’ll leave the store to you. Enjoy yourselves…

You seem weirdly cool with this! Also, on that note, I’m not really in the business of picking up high school students, but I have to assume that if I was, having their legal guardian present for my arrival would kinda kill the mood, let alone having them leave and in the process sanction our forbidden fucking tryst.

Would you prefer that I wear my maid outfit?

God no.


Oh, before I forget…

Shall I serve it to you as a reward?

I legitimately think I’m more upset by Kawakami constantly turning her servile maid thing into full-on fetish roleplay than I am by the teacher-student thing at this point. Fucking hell, I thought I rescued you from this!

...Welcome back, Master.


When I heard from Sakura-san that you turned yourself in, I cried. ...You really are a problem child. Tell me the truth, do you… regret being in a relationship with me?

Did you respond to my question with a question? You get a zero on this quiz.


That means we won’t be able to see each other at school anymore…

I’m the adult here, so… It’ll be OK. I’ll think of something. I waited all this time for you to get discharged, so there’s nothing that can deter me now.

And I’m not gonna let you be lazy about it…

And that’s Valentine’s Day! That’s it! The whole thing, nothing else!

...Why are you looking at me like that?
