<Karuno is sleeping>

Karuno
---…I don't like sleep
Probably because I don't have decent memories---…
---…e-eto…?
The sound of waves
Where could this be ---…? (…Why do I always think this---…)

Pg 117

Karuno
Where am I
---… Where is this?
Right
Why is this always a mystery---…

Pg 118

Karuno
---… a-ah
Again
A child is crying

Young Karuno
Fa---…ather, Mother…

Karuno
Crying
---… calling out

Young Karuno
Oneechan

Karuno
Right, I know this---…
How many times
How many times have I seen this

<A boy, obviously young Karuno, walks through a damaged house while he himself seems injured>

Pg 119

Karuno
This place
You could I know it very well ---…this dream

Young Karuno
Oneechan…

Karuno
As I think of it…it doesn't change
No matter how much I search, no one is here…
There was a lot of fighting

Pg 120

Karuno
My Oneechan got violent
It didn't effect me, being on a large bike
I was getting some things to cause mischief
Two days previously
I fell into the pool when we fired water guns
I got angry about it at that moment, though---…
…What?

<Young Karuno sees some bat-winged demons ahead of him>

Pg 121

Karuno
That is---…
Don't…
Don't go, stop…!!
Don't listen to their voices---…!!
Stop…!! That thing wasn't there
You couldn't see that thing!! ---…!!

Pg 122

<One of the demons holds the upper half of a body and two legs>

Karuno
Oneecha…

Pg 123

<Karuno wakes up when the couch he was sleeping on splits in two>

Karuno
…Wha?

Monica
Wh…what…!!

Pg 124

Monica
---…!

Karuno
…Ah---…

<A tear falls down Karuno's cheek>

Monica
The sofa is…

Karuno
I do things in my sleep
Although, I didn't intend on sleeping
About how long have I been out?

Monica
…About an hour. Um…
Are…are you…okay?

Karuno
…It happens all the time. It's nice when I don't attack my surroundings when I sleep

Pg 125

<As he cleans up the mess of fluff>

Karuno
I feel like I had the same dream…
I can never remember it once I wake up…
Why
(Monica) Who are---…you?
---…I don't know
I don't even know my name---…

Pg 126

Karuno
I can remember---…

<Flashback to shortly after when his dream takes place>
<Young Karuno, bleeding, is sitting in a cave as village people come in>

Man A
It's him---… over there
I think that's the young master of the villa where that stuff happened

Man B
Why doesn't anyone shelter him?

Man A
He gets violent when someone touches him

Man B
…Even if he is a bad kid, we should do something

Man A
It's seriously like he is possessed by a demon…

Man B
But he is a child. Can't we pin him down with our strength as adults?
Now…come here

Pg 127

Young Karuno
(Demon) ---…Come

Man
---…Stop it. Isn't that boy terrified

Young Karuno
Don't touch me

Man
He is fighting with too much strength---…

Young Karuno
I---…

Pg 128

<From a cliff overlooking the cave, a man (Haiman) casts a spell and lighting hits Karuno>

Men
Wha…
What!? Lighting!?
That was frightening---…

Young Karuno

Knight
One strike, well done, Haiman-dono
A-ah, but shouldn't it be necessary to kill all those around the boy?

Pg 129
Pg 130

Haiman
Not really…
We came here to find an interesting person

<Elsewhere at some building, Karuno is held in a cell. He's bloody and has spear-like objects sticking out from his side>

Man A
Haiman-dono? Perhaps the hope of the Holy Knights

Man B
I had a chance to see and speak to him while subjugating some demons
Since the boy can't be kept with the Holy Knights, we'll give him up for adoption at a good place
He sure is a skitish boy
But, is he alive like that…

Man A
He was handled while in an excited state, so it was necessary to take care of him or dispose of him

Pg 131

Young Karuno
Where is this
This is
This is…

Pg 132

Man
Well…? This boy ate what rank of demon did you say…?

<Some time later, the five-year-old Karuno is cleaned up and shackled hand and foot>

Haiman
---… Your family has been decided
The old and distinguished Guino family
We've invested in your strange abilities
However, while one could say that you are a person on the edge, because you have a good ability
Make sure no one can deny that and put it to practical use
We will ask the Guino family to take care of you for the moment

Pg 133

Haiman
Only study your materials, and the family will care for you
Don't you have any appreciation for this---…?

<Karuno is taken to a village made of caves in a hill>

Man
Around here it's simplistic carvings into harden layers
How many centuries previously did the Islam believers drive us away, making us live in hiding
We migrated here a hundred years ago
From now on, you will live here---…

Young Karuno
---…Even now
I am suddenly taken to this place
I remember them saying this was my home

Pg 134

Young Karuno
My memories start from here
Bad smells float around
Dark, bright---…chants muttered in low voices
I don't know this home
---…
The pool?

Roselette
Eh?
That's the first thing I've heard from your mouth. What?
What did you just say?

Man A
P.K. (polykinesis)!? We will try to verify that power in this boy while he is here.

Man B
Also, this boy seems to have a violent temper. We couldn't lay a hand on him without him going crazy.

Pg 135

Man A
What is that about!? I've heard of people having more special talent than that

Man B
--- That is, this one's power seems to easily show itself
It's because that he himself does it unconsciouslessly, the intensity lacks a stopping point, one could say
Essentially, his power of PK is suppressed and warped. It's reasonable that it may not be an innate ability
Even with various testing, it's still not understood
Well, we pray nothing differing the glasses of the Holy Knights' palace
But with those eyes, he doesn't want to see

Young Karuno
What are they talking about
…That's about me
What do they have so much to talk about
This is wrong
How is this my home

Pg 136

Young Karuno
My home is---…
---…?
My…home…?

<Rose places a hand on Karuno's shoulder>

Roselette
Say, your legs…aren't they cold?
Welcome. I'll make you something warm to drink

Man
---…Roselette-sama! Please be careful handling that child again and again

Roselette
It's okay! I've heard about some of those events
Uwah---…such long hair
I can't believe this cute boy would…

<And the 'kawaii' boy slaps her smiling face>

Pg 137

Men
!!
Ro…

Roselette

Don't strike a lady's face, you rude boy

<She says as she knocks him on the head>

Man
Stop, don't provoke him…

Roselette
What's that, don't say stupid things

Young Karuno
---…!!

<He sure doesn't look happy at being pounded…which won't be for the first time in his life>

Roselette
Karuno---…!

Pg 138

Roselette
Children are supposed to say "I'm sorry," and you'll certainly get used to it
Remember that!
Everyone else as well, if you say one word about it. By not provoking a boy like this, it'd be impossible to raise him
I don't know how much of a pest he is, but I can also have a temper like hot iron

Man
…We know that---…

Roselette
Isn't that right? Looks like you'll have a hard time as my brother

Pg 139

Young Karuno
… …

Roselette
…n?

Young Karuno
YOU STUPID BITCH
This isn't my home---
D…don't touch me so easily
Since, I'll kill you---!!

Pg 140

<Young Karuno runs away>

Man
Wa…--- Wait

Roselette
Don't go after him!
…Since he'll come looking for me later

Man
Is that so…
…That's why we didn't want him touched
How much of this year have our words been turned around. Hasn't she become a strong girl

Man B
Roselette

Man
Let's give up

Roselette
…That year, he wasn't alone and he couldn't cry---…
Although he had a bit of a lonely spirit…

Pg 141

Roselette
Was it about three years until I caught him smiling---…?

<The flashback ends>

<Roselette wakes from her dream, tears running down her cheeks>

Roselette
---…Ah, this isn't good
Not good
The smell of meat---…?
…Again, that idiot…

Pg 142

<Rose goes into the other room where Karuno is gesturing Monica for second>

Karuno
---…A storm is coming

Roselette
….from behind you?

Pg 143

Announcer
An official announcement of a Signal 3. Current wind velocities are 30 knots per hour
A large typhoon is approaching. By midnight it could reach a Signal 8

Pg 144
Pg 145
Pg 146

Karuno
--- The storm. Won't it be bigger than the Signal 3?

Roselette
3 is just the beginning. We will know when the typhoon gets closer
With that warning, all the boats in the bay will stop. The schools in Hong Kong will close as well.

Pg 147

Roselette
---…Well, with this just as the beginning, it will be a terrible storm
It's normal here in Hong Kong to get many typhoons
There are Signals 1 through 10
Everyday in the summer, there is a check since it would be terrible to be caught unaware
How long are you going to be a screw up

Karuno
I know nothing about that

Pg 148

Karuno
Your weather forecast wasn't off mark

Roselette
Well, just as expected
…when the storm clears up, you can go home

Monica
Really?

Pg 149

Monica:
You people…who are you?

Roselette
…Magicians

Monica
I don't understand…

Roselette
---…That's fine

Karuno
I'd agree, but I don't understand either

Roselette
That's not acceptable from you

Karuno
…What? I can't connect with the nature of this world

Roselette
You don't have the ability

Karuno
---…That right?

Pg 150

Roselette
---…Spirits, the time is coming near
"Regis"
That is your true name
---…Don't look for your friends
Since there isn't anyone left from your time

Pg 151

Karuno
---…What is this

Roselette
---…You don't know anything. You haven't done anything to understand yourself
A human that doesn't do anything
About talent, it is ten years too early to talk about it
Say, Karuno
Long ago, could you really not see anything?

Pg 152

<The roof blows off due to the wind>

Pg 153

Karuno
The roof…
Didn't they say it was the beginning, a Signal 3
Then why did the roof blow off

Roselette
…Because locally it is now about an 8

Pg 154

Roselette
What I want to know
…Could you really not see anything---…?

Pg 155

<Karuno thinks back to his vague memories, about the bat-like wings>

Karuno
I can't see it
That thing
I didn't see it---…
Really---…?
The dream I can't remember---…
The pool…
The smell of sulfur
The odor of decay
Whispers
Whispers of something
That voice
Whispers
I mustn't listen

Pg 156

Karuno
(Monica) Who---are you?
(Haiman) ---…You have to decide, like an ordinary person, how to live your life
---…I…I
(Haiman) Since certainly unnatural things will gather around you
Haiman---…!!
I---…!!

Pg 157

Roselette
---…
Somehow---…Enough, you were in a deep sleep
I don't think it is unreasonable, since you say you don't have memory
Primarily, even if you don't want to speak truthfully about why you don't want to stop being a magician
However, it's probably because you can't run away
---…Of course, it's the same as me not growing old
I cut my hair and nails that grew everyday, but
Within my body, it functions in time measurements like regular time periods

Pg 158

Roselette
---…In the end, over time this hair and these nails stopped growing
I have always wondered
Why does this only happen to me
I've separated from friends and relatives, after joining the Guino family, I've always wondered
Even now, I don't know
Nobody could explain it
---…Can't help it
Never changing, stranger than everyone, I'm that type of girl

Pg 159

Roselette
But, Karuno
Despite that, I'm self confident
---…
Probably
You are, now
It made me sad to think I'd spend eternity in this form, to one day be the only person in this world

Pg 160

Roselette
However, there's certainly more than that
I say to myself, it doesn't matter
---…Isn't that right?
I have self-confidence
Karuno, you were the only one to always speak down to me---…

Karuno
---…
Stupid woman

Roselette
---…Long ago
This also happened

Pg 161

Roselette
(Roselette) ---…I can't stand it. It's not pleasing to have a reputation
(Roselette) Since your body has gotten so big, you should grasp onto your studies
(Karuno) What with that
(Roselette) …What, want me to look bad because you are a screw up?
(Karuno) Alright, alright…

Pg 162

Roselette
(Roselette) Will it always be like that…?
(Roselette) ---…Losing to your calmness
(Roselette) ---Always unyielding
(Roselette) The eternal woman
(Roselette) ---…I sometimes think we are truly like a little brother and big sister

Pg 163

Roselette
(Roselette) Although a screw up, he is my supreme man
Go fight, since you certainly
Won't lost to anyone
In the case you truly can't see
He is a person of my level. There's nothing you can do to an eccentric, heartlessly holding onto life

Pg 164

Roselette
However you live, don't question the most special thing
---…You are human first

Pg 165

Roselette
Well? Can you see it?

Karuno
I can't see it---listen---no matter what you say, I have tried hard

Roselette
…That so

Karuno
But
It seems like…something is there
…you

Pg 166

<Speaking to Monica...>

Karuno
Despite the things that may happen, don't leave here
The food was delicious
I owe you one

Pg 167

<As she does magic...>

Roselette
Well! What's this formation?

Karuno
---…Saturn

Roselette
The effect?

Karuno
To raise magical power

Roselette
Yes, correct answer

Karuno
…I know plenty

Roselette
Since earth is earth, the feel of alternating east to west cannot be erased
The spirits here are very solid

<An image of a dragon flies in the clouds>

Pg 168

<Elsewhere, a window breaks apart from a sign crashing though>

Sherlock
!!

<Ram, in sunglasses, is speaking to a couple older men>

Ram
Sherlock, get away from the window
…It is near. It would be best for you to be saying goodbye

Man
…We leave it to you

Pg 169

Man
---…Is this an example of the consequences of foretelling?

Ram
Certainly, in a few days…

Man
…Your powers are amazing. We will be waiting
If possible, that is, I wish to give thanks for before

Ram
Whatever
Anyhow, as a person holding onto life---…
To the best of my ability, I think it can be handled in this world
…More so, please be careful returning home

Pg 170

<The men leave and it is just Sherlock and Ram in the room>

Ram
Today, there is an especially strong appearance of a spirit wind
Perhaps, we will be getting a bothersome visit here by someone we know
The Guino wind user, is she planning to control this storm?
---…In nature, there are several ways to use an awakened storm
That sorceress is doing it
Over there, she is being careless, simply showing her hand since she isn't our opponent

Pg 171

Sherlock
---…But…even though ripped apart, it was insignificant
Since it was the stomach of someone childlike

Person in the City
It seems the roof of that building over there blew off
It's really bad this year

Person in the City
No joking, the bed of the children should be pulled from the window

Person in the City
Last year, the peninsula's parking area was flooded
It's also said that nine Roll Royce cars got taken

TV
The wind velocity investigated overseas have grown strong
More than before, care is---…

Pg 172

Ram
---…If it's water, I have several ways to use it
Shall we provide opposition

<Ram forms a dragon of water to meet against Rose's dragon of wind>

Pg 173

Roselette
---…I've found you, Ram

Pg 174

<Elsewhere, Haiman is playing chess against someone>

Person
---…It's gotten rough in Hong Kong
The Guino family is fighting amongst themselves

Haiman
…Hou
The Guino family…hmmm

Pg 175
Pg 176

<As the dragons fight each other…>

Roselette
---…Go Karuno!!!
Since I've pinned down Ram's magic!
You are welcome to strike that octopus without worry!!

Pg 177

Roselette
My dragon will lead you to his location
If you can't see it, follow your intuition!

Karuno
Intuition…?

Roselette
---…Karuno…!
---…

Pg 178

Roselette
Do your best
You always were
And always…will be
A sweet boy
You probably can't hear me---…?
You…probably don't know?
…but
I hate gloominess

Pg 179

Roselette
That unknowing face
That never changing attitude
Being with you
Has made me very happy---…

<When Karuno has left on his hunt, Roselette has a coughing fit>

Monica
---…!!
Wa…
Watch out…!! What is it? Are you okay?

Roselette
…I'm fine

Pg 180

Roselette
…I'm fine. I can't…help it anymore
I've gotten weak

<Back at the Ram/Sherlock apartment>

Ram
---…The force of the wind is weakening
Reaching the mouth, there is still time so we mustn't be unprepared…
By the way, Sherlock, it was stormy the day when I met you

Sherlock
---eh, eh

Pg 181

Sherlock
You laughed at my inexperienced skills
It has been painful since

Ram
You followed walking after me
Your yelling was amusing
---…The Guino family magician
I have one memory of him
I has a closed off shell of myself, placing much weight into research
Reflecting back on it, I had forsaken the movement of the actual world and that organization---…

Pg 182

Sherlock
It's not clear to me---…
---…The desire for supernatural power
Always, I thought I was strange…
The Guino magician questioned balance. Is it also the same for him---?
Like your way---…?

<Karuno runs down the rainy streets, following the wind dragon whether he actually sees it or not>

Karuno
Intuition…intuition…
Which way?

 Pg 183

Karuno
E-eto…
Seems to be over there

<Back to Sherlock/Ram>

Ram
Have you heard of the term "gene"
Sherlock, do you know of "immunization"?

Sherlock
Ha?

Pg 184

Ram
The Guino family accepted experimentation on that pitiful, beautiful boy possibly about ten years ago
I believe he was a "recipient"…
It's rather rare to find an unconditional "recipient"
A human…nude mouse

Sherlock
---…
Nude…mouse…?

Pg 185

<Elsewhere, Haiman is talking to spirits, I think>

Spirit
He won't become…a tool
Considering the magician

Haiman
---…
It that so

Spirit
Magic is the result of constant efforts put into studying
In a sense, there is one skill to him
How much of a godsend ability is it
The true situation is without passion on can't study

Pg 186

Haiman
---…You visited the lost Roselette-dono

Spirit
Accuracy has yet been reached---…there is an issue with time
Now, all of the girl's intestines burnt to ash…will be made into a pattern

Haiman
Ernest Ram was secretly conspiring with the Chinese government before
The circumstances are that he is a traitor who breaks (Buddhist) commandments mercilessly
I am pleased you gave us Holy Knights our request

Spirit
He placed dishonor on us. We will dispel it

Haiman
I understand

Pg 187

Spirit
Roselette had a long relationship with Ram
It's true she was probably careless
Perhaps she intended to speak with him
What kind of magician as he was concentrating power as a outsider of the arts
In time, it is necessary to also be prepared---…we aren't omnipotent
Her friendship to him was rewarded with sudden murder and blood
Magic needing a female, just like a powerless girl, she couldn't resist---…

Pg 188

Spirit
He said to the girl that he set her free from her curse of eternity---…

Haiman
---…
Does that know of these things?

Spirit
Are you speaking of…Karuno? He knows
In Hong Kong, before dispatching him, he was told everything
Just like him, in loyalty…from beginning to end he was silent
Listening

Pg 189

Haiman
An understanding of oneself with oneself
Is there a distinguishing thing between himself and the other---…?
That is
It isn't that one can compare the heart to the dark areas within the heart
Truly, without memories---…

Pg 190

Haiman
---…That is a soul chimera
Already, no a normal "human" and I won't forget your ways

Pg 191
Pg 192

<Karuno is walking in the hurricane, a bit of a murderous grin on his face>

Karuno
Think about the enemy
Think about the blood and flesh
How's that? A pretty nice tune of mine…
Smile

Pg 193

Karuno
Where are you? Soon I'll find out, you vomitus bastard---…
…unstoppable

<Back to Ram's apartment where the science lecture to a confused Sherlock is taking place>

Ram
In the cells of a child, one by one there are 46 fine threads called chromosomes
Among these 46, there are about 50000 DNA pairs which become the blueprints for the child

Pg 195

Sherlock
---…Is this a science talk

Ram
---…Yes, this heredity and such is rather recent, within the last hundred years
The length of out time, I'd say it is not because of the existence of souls in child
There is much more than the flesh, many complexities intertwined
Blueprints of the soul, spiritual DNA---…

Pg 195

Ram
In summary, in our way, people strong in spirituality are those who have surprising abilities
There is a way of thinking that it isn't because everything seems to be strangely intertwined

Sherlock
Herity---…is it? But
My parents didn't have any kind of power

Ram
A child receives from the parents two sets of DNA, inheriting one set by a suitable selection
In other words, half is thrown out
This selection is a lottery
Heredity is a variety of increasingly discarded DNA
Consequently, in parents and children and in others
There is a low probability for a person to have intertwining with one's soul

Pg 196

Sherlock
---…
Hah…

Ram
There is that way of thinking
In nature, some lack something called "constitution"
In others, there exists artists that display unusual powers such as the ability to mimic
In the thirteenth century, southern Europe had a discovery of the lifetime, "Ark"---…
The secret flower of southern Asia, "Raphito"
The Holy Knight's highest priest, Levi
The Persian sword "Sherazard"
Their abilities are chance appearances of awakened DNA, trained in the same way

Pg 197

Ram
And our lovely young man, still---…

<Haiman is walking about the Holy Knights place>

Haiman
I wish an audience with His Eminence Levi!!

Servant
Don't be rude, Haiman-sama!!
His Eminence has already gone to bed!

Haiman
I only want you to ask. I will not hinder your authority

<Back to our science lecture with Ram>

Ram
This troubling talk continues
Have you been able to follow, Sherlock?

Pg 198

Ram
For instances, take a person possessed by another spirit, by a demon
A person of spiritual ability traps demons or exorcises them
However, who separate both spirits---…?
In summary, we form the very important premise that the spirits must be divided, the demon repelled

Pg 199

Ram
---…This is a situation in which "the spirit is purified by separating it for the body"
A situation called "we, living people, have the superficial knowledge that other things cannot mix"

<Haiman enters the bedroom chambers of Levi>

Haiman
Despite it being the time for sleep,
I appreciate you accepting my request
Your Eminence, Levi

Pg 200

Levi
---…It's been a while, Haiman

<Back to Prof Ram>

Ram
Sherlock, my body and your body
Each finger, each strand of hair is made from the same material
Limited in us, children, anyone, him, throughout races of people and others there are but small differences, regardless of being composed of nearly all the same material

Pg 201

<Ram removes his sunglasses to show his eyes are covered by skin>

Ram
If you were to tear my skin off and apply it to your skin
It would most likely rot
Because your body would recognize me as "something not you"
For instances, there was a famous experiment preformed
In the body of chickens was placed a brain of a quail to make living things
This way, given a healthy birth, it'd grow up like a quail because of the controlling brain
In situations and in sleep
It's said they died ten days after birth
In the chicken bodies, there are immune cells
Nothing but one's own brain will do, or else it would be chosen as not yours thus an invader and killed

Pg 202

Ram
In summary, living things undoubtedly need their own brain
And so the origin of life is lost
…"Things that aren't you" won't be accepted within your body
You and others are thinking things
---A thing you can ascertain as yourself
That is formed from your brain and heart
In the marrow of the bone comes the thing called immunity which starts removal
A small amount of several hundred DNA strands control it

Pg 203

Sherlock

Ram
Do you understand?
…It appears
---…someone is coming to this place right now
The lesson will have to wait

Sherlock
Eh…!

Ram
---…The wind is also surrounding…
What are you planning, Roselette
---…children

Pg 204

Ram
(Ram) Everyone is made from the same things and of the same solitude
(Roselette) This is true
(Roselette) But it's not the first time it's been said
---My most beloved friend
Understood that
She was killed with this hand
More than anything, her companionship made me happy---…

Pg 205

<Back to Levi's chambers>

Haiman
---…

Levi
Subjugation…?
In Hong Kong, the devil that is said to appeared, it cannot be stopped

Haiman
I fear so, Your Eminence
It'll come out
Perhaps, the council didn't have time to look over it
I beseech you, please allow me, Haiman, under the authority of Your Eminence to subjugate it

Levi
---…

Pg 206

Levi
The elders of Macao are reported to want an incense burner
On the way, look for the devil
With your judgement, even if it means returning to the bottom of the earth
The person at fault will be left to you

Haiman
Ha!

<And Haiman leaves the room>

Levi
---…
Subjugation…huh
It was said so easily

Pg 207

<Out in the hallway>

Knight
You went to his sleeping place…! His Eminence could have told you the extent of his displeasure…

Pg 208

Knight
---…Are you pleased

Haiman
Show some reserve and don't speak of it coming out
If it's the girl, she'll make noise. His Eminence knows this
More importantly, gather five people to go to Hong Kong

Knight
---…Will the devil really appear?

Haiman
It will
---…I will
Find that child

Pg 209

<Back to the bedchambers, Levi is talking with mystery woman>

Levi
Perhaps in time I'll join the situation due to my responsibility
---…I completely remember the one named Karuno
It's bothered Haiman since a long time ago

Woman
I know the beautiful boy
Sincerely, he has warped love from self-denial
There are many abnormalities compared to your magic users

Pg 210

Levi
---…Isn't he? It seems he is lacking something

Woman
---…a demon eater…is it
Limited talk of a child of so much misery
Well, perhaps if the flow of he destiny had been ended
I probably wouldn't have met you, Levi

Pg 211

Levi
Unchanging sadness in that princess

Maid
Excuse me, Your Eminence…Huh?
Weren't you talking with someone…?
…No?

Woman
---…should I try to meet him?

Maid
Huh, the wind…

Pg 212

Levi
---…Now, I thought there was nothing salvageable in me
But I don't want to grasp death

<As Karuno hunts down his prey, he thinks of the past>

Karuno
(Priests) Can you remember your true name?
(Priests) Your other name? Your class?

Pg 213

Karuno
(Priests) What does the fusion feel like?

Pg 214

Karuno
(Priests) Your soul was born with a problem in the immune system

Pg 215

Karuno
(Priests) When you were seven
(Priests) You became mentally frightened and shocked when placed in a situation you weren't prepared for
(Priests) For the first time, you came in contact with the enemy life force
(Priests) You almost became a donor to the demon, but before you were made to destroy your own body
I am myself
(Priests) Your innate ability saved you by joining with it

Pg 216

Karuno
(Priests) Your soul is yours and another's---…person and demon
I am myself
(Priests) They can't be distinguished apart
(Priests) Do you know who you are---…?
Anyone would be fine
(Priests) Right now
(Priests) Do you believe you are human---…?

Pg 217

Karuno
Anything is fine
Whatever is fine about that
Whoever I am is fine

<Karuno crashes into Ram's apartment>

Pg 218

<He pictures Roselette for a moment>

Karuno
Your calling voice
Decided my name
---…I've found you

Pg 219
Pg 220

Ram
A human can't survive with only a soul or body
Usually, while living, you don't mix with others to make sure to protect yourself
Solitude apart, like (water) drops

Pg 221

Ram
Except him. His soul doesn't have the power to exclude, so it extends into the heterogeneous
There is something at the very end, that power of rejection as well, it is uncertain if the ability to decide isn't his

Pg 222

Ram
In other words, he can fuse with anything

Sherlock
Ma…

Pg 223

<Karuno using magic rips into Sherlock, creating something like his octopus idea. Oddly, doesn't bother Ram much at all>

Pg 224
Pg 225
Pg 226

Karuno
---…A-ah
I messed up
The head should stay on…

Pg 227

Ram
…Torn to pieces
Is that what you'd call this

Karuno
You're mistaken

Pg 228

Karuno
It's something like an octopus
There's eight, right? Legs…
…Nice smell
Next time, I won't mess up
It'll be a large lump

Pg 229

Ram
Since I was born, my eyeballs…
Too much skin has covered them
Therefore I have surrounded myself with my own spirit energy to be able to see

Pg 230

<Ram practically feels the guy up, and Karuno lets him>

Ram
---…Beautiful
Truly beautiful
Red
Seemingly with spots of beast

Pg 231

Ram
Blood, flesh, and spirit filled with pleasure and sadness

<Karuno attacks Ram with magic, forcing the larger man out a section of wall that blasted away>

Pg 232

Ram
I look down on thou from high above and command
I summon thee
Water, suck out the breath of my enemy for eternity, don't sink into this bottomless world of suffering
I order thou with the all of the same power of the master that created the earth and heavens

Pg 233

Ram
I become truth, I become supreme, I become master of heaven. Wrap me in the armor of salvation with the face of the dragon
I order thou, the hidden person in water
At once, I demand thine answer to show me thine allegiance

Pg 234

Karuno
---…
Wind, I call

Ram
Return my enemy to the depths of hell for eternity
