Kaname: What are you doing, Imouto-chan?
Kaname: The sun had set down, so isn’t it dangerous for you to be alone in this kind of place?
Kaname: Are you crying?
Ema: I-I’m fine.
Kaname: …My precious little sister said that with such swollen eyes, obviously I can’t just say ‘ah, okay’ and accept it so easily.
Ema: ….Uhm, Kaname-san, why are you here…?
Kaname: Rintarou-san contacted our house, saying that you ran away. Right now, everyone is looking for you.
Kaname: Yeah. …We’ve heard about the circumstances.
Ema: (Is that so… everyone had learned about it.)
Kaname: Hey. You’re still not in the mood to return home?
Kaname: I see. Well, I guess…. It’s not surprising that you become confused. I understand that feeling of wanting to cry when finding out that you’re actually all alone.
Ema: K-Kaname-san can’t possibly understand. What I feel right now…!
Kaname: You’re right. I can’t possibly 100% understand. But, I can at least imagine it.
Kaname: What you believed up until now suddenly gone… where should your heart be, you feel like you’re lost.
Kaname: I’m a monk after all.
Kaname: I’ve seen people who were suffering and mourning over something. That’s why right now, I’m able to understand your feelings somehow.
Ema: Is that… so.
Kaname: However――this is a problem that only you can overcome. I can’t help you with it.
Kaname: Whether you’ll accept yourself as Rintarou-san’s adoptive daughter or not, it is for you to decide.
Ema: …D-Don’t say that! If…if I accept it, I…!
Ema: (I’ll really become all alone… even if it’s just my hunch….)
Kaname: …I’m sorry.
Kaname: If you don’t like it, then tell me.
Ema: (Kaname-san’s arms are shyly embracing me….)
Kaname: I said it earlier, but this is your problem. I can’t take it over for you.
Kaname: I can at least support you, who are trying to overcome it. That’s it, if you need me.
Kaname: It’s alright if you don’t force yourself to smile or cry your eyes out. But, you shouldn’t avert your eyes from the problem in front of you. You have to overcome it.
Ema: (Kaname-san’s quiet yet powerful voice, gently penetrates into my heart….)
Ema: (There’s no hint of his usual lighthearted and flirtatious side at all….)
Ema: At times like this, I thought Kaname-san would say something much nicer….
Kaname: Hm, is that so?
Ema: Yes…. But, somehow it opens my eyes.
Kaname: Open your eyes?
Ema: I regret running away without even trying to listen to Papa’s circumstances. Even though I should’ve listened to what he had to say….
Ema: I will… listen to Papa’s explanation. If he hid such an important thing from me up until now, there should be a deep meaning to it….
Ema: Now isn’t too late…is it?
Kaname: Not at all. Rintarou-san should be waiting for you to say that.
Kaname: It’s alright. I’ll be by your side. Until you’re able to overcome it, I’ll keep on supporting you.
Kaname: ――Do your best.
Ema: Thank you very much…Kaname-san.
Ema: (Being in Kaname-san’s arms fill me with strength…. Somehow he seems very reliable…..)
Kaname: …How strange that you’re not running away.
Kaname: I seemed to have gotten carried away.
Kaname: Can I comfort you, my dear sister? With a kiss, maybe?
Ema: Wha-….! How did this turn out to that?!
Kaname: Because it’s the right atmosphere for it, I guess.
Ema: What kind of atmosphere are you talking about! Geez! Please let me go!
Kaname: Eeeh. Even though it felt so right just now~.
Ema: (Kaname-san is a frivolous person after all….)
Ema: (But, I can’t run away forever…. I have to thank Kaname-san for cheering me up.)
Ema: (Let’s meet with Papa. Meet him, and listen to his explanation properly…!)
