Criminale! F 5 – Nero
CV: Hirakawa Daisuke
1PM. Inside an airplane.
Ah, thank you. Could you bring her a blanket too?
That’s no good. It gets quite cold inside airplanes. Our trip would be ruined if you caught a cold, wouldn’t it?
Of course I’m happy. Going on a trip with you is like a dream.
I’m not exaggerating. Things have finally calmed down at Amphisbaena and I’m able to have some proper time off.
The conclave didn’t seem like it would go smoothly, but thanks to you, it all worked out.
We’re lovers now. I don’t want to be away from you during my time off, not even for a second. I want to stay by your side.
I want us to be alone soon. Kissing your cheeks and ears isn’t enough.
Did that tickle? You’re cute.
It’s quite noisy, but it’s nothing for us to be concerned about.
It certainly is strange.
Yes. It’s a hijack.
Don’t worry. I’ll protect you no matter what, so just stay calm.
Anyway… Those guys don’t seem to be terrorists.
It looks like they’ve got a specific aim. Perhaps it’s the hold?
In that case, I don’t think they’ll do anything to the plane or kill the passengers.
Still… They’re being pretty thorough. They’re checking all the passengers’ belongings and giving them a body search.
This can’t be… They’re looking for a specific person.
A mafia organisation which has control of the world. They hijacked the plane the daughter of the organisation’s leader is on.
It can’t be a simple coincidence.
And… Those guns they’re carrying are the same as the ones Chiave uses. Members of the mafia often use those guns.
That grip… The decoration on it… There’s no doubt it belongs to a family.
So that’s how it is…
I’m going to get rid of them. They should be here to check us out soon.
At that time…
The other passengers?
This isn’t the time to be worried about them. You’re the one they’re looking for. So…
Yes, I’m fine. Wait a minute though.
There should be more of them around. They’re probably looking at the other classes. It’s noisy behind us.
They’ve got a lot of stuff with them. Guns and explosives. Parachutes too. They’re also carrying derringers to commit suicide with.
Were they sure you were on this flight?
It’s only a matter of time before they find you. We can’t stay stuck in this metal cage forever. We’re getting out of here now.
We can do it. With these parachutes.
Come with me!
2PM. Inside an airplane. An hour has passed since the plane was hijacked.
We haven’t got much time. We need to get out right now.
That’s just what I’d expect from Father’s daughter. You know quite a lot of things.
Of course, this emergency door won’t open right now. It probably has about 12 tons of pressure against it.
But there is something we can do.
Come in front of me. Turn to face forward, with your back towards me.
All we need is for the plane to be at a lower altitude. That isn’t difficult to do. If you’re a terrorist, you see.
Don’t move. You, that flight attendant over there. Raise your hands and turn this way.
Tell the pilot to gradually lower the altitude. Get him to slow down too.
Don’t take too long. She’ll be dead if you don’t do as I say.
I’m sorry. I don’t like pointing my gun at you, but just bear with it for a little while.
You’re not going to do anything, even when one of your passengers has been taken hostage? This airline’s promise to give all of its passengers a comfortable flight must be weaker than pizza dough.
Or do you want to see blood splashed all over her body?
Well… There are plenty more hostages, you see.
As you wish, I’m going to shoot this young lady in the head…
They’re finally gone…
Sorry about doing this. You’re everything to me. I’d do anything to get you out of here safely. Even if it meant sacrificing everyone here.
It seems like the plane has slowed down. The altitude is dropping too. I suppose we’ve come quite far down. At this distance, it won’t be much different from skydiving.
Come on, let’s go.
Why are you angry? You pushed me away suddenly too… It’s dangerous for us to be apart, isn’t it? There are still more enemies over there. You understand, don’t you? This is our only chance to escape. You’re a good girl, so come over here.
Come on, there’s nothing to be afraid of. I’m your boyfriend, you see. Trust me.
The other passengers? I suppose they’ll be fine. I can’t be sure about it though.
A concussion? This kind of grenade is small but has a lot of destructive power. We’ve got to be careful.
There’s a stun grenade too. So they didn’t use this because they thought someone from Amphisbaena was with you?
Ah… This one doesn’t have any destructive power. It’s a smoke grenade or a knockout grenade. But people who’ve had training, like me and my younger brother, aren’t too affected by smoke grenades.
They’re being more careful than I thought they would. Let’s hurry.
The parachute… Right, this one is for two people.
The safety device is fine too.
You come this way too, Miss.
They’ve seen us! We don’t have much time.
We’re going to jump out with the parachute. Alright, come this way!
I can’t listen to that request. Remember this. I’ll do anything to keep you alive, even if you end up hating me. I told you, didn’t I? As long as I protect you, it doesn’t matter if the whole world turns against me. So…
I’m going to throw this bomb.
Five. Four. Three. Two. One!
7PM. Gracia, Barcelona. In a maze of streets. Six hours have passed.
You can’t pick us up from these coordinates?! You know this is their territory, right?
It doesn’t matter about me, but she’s here too! That’s why…
Yes. I am calm.
It wasn’t exactly a conspicuous escape. The enemy should know where we landed.
Yes, of course. I want to leave this country before they come after us.
Get to France by ourselves?!
Do you know how far away from the border we are?!
I’ll contact you again later!
Miss! You’re awake now, aren’t you?
Are you okay? Does it hurt anywhere?
Thank goodness. You lost consciousness when we jumped out of the plane.
I’m really sorry I forced you to do it.
Hmm? The plane? You mean the one we were on?
I heard it had an emergency landing at a nearby airport. Anyway, what about you? Are you really okay?
You don’t look so good.
Well… I don’t really know whether the passengers were safe.
Huh? Well… It doesn’t matter, does it?
As long as you’re safe, Amphisbaena isn’t concerned about what happens to anyone else.
Ah… Those handcuffs. I found them in the hijackers’ belongings. They probably planned to capture you and take you with them.
I just want to protect you.
We haven’t been chained together like this since that other time. It’s unfortunate that the chains are long though.
Hey! Don’t struggle! It’d be no good if your beautiful wrists got bruised.
I can’t do that. I really don’t want to do anything that’d mean losing you.
That’s what the handcuffs are for.
What’s the matter? You’re trembling.
I see. You were scared.
I want to help you calm down now, but we’ve got to leave here right away. I’m sorry.
Can you stand?
Miss… Are you hurt somewhere after all?!
I was worried that you couldn’t move…
Yes. We’re going to France.
I wanted the others to pick us up here, but we can’t do anything to draw attention to ourselves.
We’ll have to travel a long way, but I’ll definitely get you to France.
Let’s hurry now.
10:30PM. The Gothic Quarter,  Barcelona. A room in an old hotel. Nine hours have passed.
I’m sorry we have to stay somewhere like this. As long as we pay, they don’t really mind who we are. If we were going to stay in a hotel, then I thought we would stay somewhere nice that’d be right for you… But this place is pretty dusty, isn’t it? The bed is hard and the room is draughty… And of course there are cobwebs… I can’t believe they manage to have guests in a place like this.
Well, I stay at places like this because of my work… But it’s not the right place for a date.
It’s alright. I’ll hold you while you’re sleeping. Then you’ll be able to sleep a little, won’t you?
Hey! Why are you running away? You don’t have to be shy.
It really is hard. I don’t want to make you sit here…
Right! Come and sit here.
That’s right. Inbetween my legs.
I think this will be a little better. I’ll be able to put my arms around you.
Are you embarrassed? You haven’t changed at all. You’re cute and beautiful.
So… It makes me want to lock you away.
Got you. Lean on me. You should rest while you can.
Ah, right… Are you hungry?
I bought these bocadillos  on the way here. Do you want some?
I see… I suppose you wouldn’t feel hungry in this kind of situation.
What we’re going to do now? Now that you mention it, I haven’t given you a proper explanation.
Yes. On our way to France, we’ll try to travel as secretly as possible. We need to get to the border, no matter what. Once we get to the border, we can meet our allies too.
What those men were trying to do? I’m not completely sure yet, but what I can say for now is that there are some people trying to take control of society’s underworld away from Amphisbaena.
They’re going to use you to give themselves the upper hand. They wouldn’t be targeting you otherwise.
I can’t forgive them. I should have killed all those guys on the plane after all.
Hey. You think so too, don’t you?
Everyone who makes you scared should just die.
Don’t look so scared. I’ll protect you, no matter what happens.
For now, just relax and fall asleep in my arms.
The handcuffs? You want me to take them off?
It’s safer to have them on. If I’m beside you, I can be your shield if something happens.
This is like what happened that other time, isn’t it?
I’m feeling a little moved that I’m connected to you like this again.
I was happy then, but I’m even happier now. It’s because we’re real lovers now, you see.
My heart and body are both connected to you.
Your gentle warmth… Your beautiful skin… It all belongs to me.
Your ears are your weak spot, aren’t they? Even though I only kissed them slightly.
I won’t let anyone else have you. I’m the only one who can touch you from now on, aren’t I?
Why? Do you hate me or something like that?
We’re lovers, aren’t we? Why are you looking at me like that?
You really do hate me, don’t you?
If you don’t hate me…
Then look at me properly!
Why are you looking away? Being reflected in your eyes is the only thing that makes me happy. So look at me…
Thank you. When you look at me, that’s enough to make me happy.
Hmm? Your lips are trembling. They look paler than usual too. Your beautiful pink lips…
I’m going to warm them up for you.
You don’t have to worry.
I’m going to protect you from everything. That’s why you should be chained to me like this.
Look. When we put our chained hands together like this and entwine our fingers… With our bodies so close together that there’s no space between us… You can sleep calmly, can’t you?
We’ll be travelling a long way tomorrow, so rest while you can. Good night.
 The Gothic Quarter is the centre of the old city of Barcelona.
 A bocadillo is a sandwich made from Spanish bread. Fillings include omelette, cold meats and cheese.
12:30PM. The Gothic Quarter, Barcelona. La Rambla.  Twenty-three hours have passed.
The weather is great, isn’t it? I think it’s a perfect day for a date.
It seems like there are a lot of tourist attractions around here. I’d want us to take our time here if we didn’t have enemies following us…
Yes, I’m really happy. Because I can walk around Barcelona with you.
Of course, it’s unforgivable that our holiday together was ruined. But no matter what happens, I’m happy being with you like this.
You don’t look happy. I suppose that I can’t make you happy after all.
But you’ve been acting strange since what happened yesterday… Am I that unreliable?
That’s alright then.
Whether it’s somewhere I know or somewhere I’ve never been, everywhere looks brilliant when you’re beside me.
You’re looking away… Are you embarrassed?
Seeing as we’re here, shall we have a look around somewhere?
Those guys don’t seem to have caught up to us yet.
Look, there’s a cathedral over there. Didn’t you say you were interested in things like that?
Hey. Why don’t we walk past it?
What’s the matter?
Oh? Of course I’m planning on taking you somewhere safe.
But we can go there after we pass by the cathedral.
Come on, let’s go.
I had a feeling it would be crowded. I suppose that’s what you’d expect from a tourist spot. I’ve heard it’s famous for a statue of the Black Madonna …
You haven’t said anything all this time. Do you feel bored when you’re with me?
Hmm… So this is a building in the Gothic style?
I don’t know as much about art as my brother does, but the height and use of light in the Gothic style, which has existed since the 12th century, is a realisation of the people’s desire to reach the kingdom of God. That’s what I’ve heard.
Although there’s no way that the humans who were expelled from paradise could reach the kingdom of God… It’s foolish.
I always felt that way before I met you. No one can become beautiful. Especially not me.
No. I’ve seen many places and people during my missions, but they were all ugly things.
When I met you and got to know you, I was able to understand that such a beautiful and pure person existed.
When you smiled at me, you really were like an angel. I’d always been in love with you. So I…
No. Look at me right now.
I don’t mean it in a strange way. We’re being followed. There’s one man. Let’s lose him in this crowd.
 La Rambla is a pedestrian street in central Barcelona, which separates The Gothic Quarter and another neighbourhood called El Raval.
 A Black Madonna is a statue or painting of the Virgin Mary where she is depicted with dark skin.
1:30PM. The Gothic Quarter, Barcelona. Jaume I.  Twenty-four hours have passed.
This should be far enough… Sorry for making you rush.
Are you alright? You’ll be able to rest soon.
Yes. There’s no sign of the guy who was following us. I think he was the same as those guys who attacked us on the plane. I’m sure he knew that I’d noticed him. He didn’t attack us back then because you were his target…
I’m going to contact my allies again. Then I’ll make sure that you can at least…
Are they going to have a shoot-out in front of the station?! If you get hit… Have they decided that kidnapping you would be too difficult, so they’re going to kill you instead?!
Damn it! Let’s turn into that corner, Miss! If we run into the alleyways…
No way! It’s a dead end!
Thanks for what you did on the plane. I remember the design on the grip of that gun.
Yes, because it was a terrible design.
Are your allies safe?
I see. So the plane landed.
I suppose I should’ve blown up the whole plane.
You must be joking. I won’t let you have her. Even if I’m at a disadvantage.
Miss. Things are going to be a little rough, but make sure you follow me.
Get down when I give you the sign. Close your eyes and cover your ears.
A stun grenade.
Yes. I stole it from those guys on the plane. It’ll act as a distraction.
Will three of you be enough?
It’s too soon for you to be resting!
If you’re stumbling… Then you’re no match for my fists!
That’s two now. The last one…
Ah… The guy who was following us earlier.
You didn’t attack us earlier and now you’re keeping your distance. You haven’t got a gun, have you? That’s why you called for backup. I’m right, aren’t I?
Hmm… You’re not going to run? You’re pretty brave.
You might be planning to kill her, but there’s no use trying. Now that I’m handcuffed to her, I won’t let you kill her or take her away, even if it means sacrificing myself. Definitely not.
You just don’t get it, do you?
Miss. Let’s get away while we can. These guys won’t be able to move for a while.
That guy was still conscious… Miss!
Miss… It can’t be… Why’d this happen?
You’re alright? You don’t have to pretend now…
I won’t forgive you! How dare you…
All of you are bastards!
Anyone who hurts her… Anyone who points a gun at her… I’m going to kill them all.
Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill! Kill!
I’m going to kill them!
This is just a scratch…. It’s fine… Don’t worry.
I won’t let them die that easily. Killing them isn’t enough. I’ll hurt them and hurt them and hurt them. I’ll kill them after I make them suffer. That’ll make them scared, won’t it?
There are plenty of things in this world that are more frightening than death.
Ah… You still have the energy to glare at me. I’m impressed.
I’m strange? This kind of thing is enough to scare you? That makes me laugh. You’re a part of the mafia too…
I suppose it’s a compliment though. I can do anything for her sake. I’ll try anything. If that’s what people call strange, then I’ll happily accept that.
Ah… I’ve found something good. You shouldn’t have dropped your gun. You’re not cut out to be in the mafia. Even though a weapon should be the second most important thing after your own life when you’re in a fight…
Don’t worry. I won’t hit any of your vital spots. It wouldn’t be any fun if you were killed in one hit, would it?
I’m not going to let you escape!
Miss?! What are you doing?! He hurt you! I can’t let him live! Get out of my way!
I’m no different from before? Of course not! I won’t show any mercy to anyone who hurts you, no matter who they are!
I’m no good the way I am now? What do you mean?
I’m always doing things for your sake!
Their allies are here? We definitely won’t survive if they catch us! I definitely won’t let that happen! We’re going to escape from here, no matter what!
A taxi! That’s perfect timing.
Come on! Get in!
What are you doing? Hurry up!
Don’t make me repeat myself. I’ll blow your brains out next. If you don’t want to be killed, then drive!
 Jaume I is a station on the Barcelona metro. It was named after James I of Aragon, who ruled various parts of Spain from 1238-1276.
It doesn’t look like they’re following us.
I want to look at your injury. Sorry, but could you hold this?
Hold it in your right hand and point it forwards. Just to make sure the taxi driver doesn’t try anything.
What’s the matter? If I don’t look at your injury soon… It might not hurt right now, but it could get worse later! Forgetting about the pain when you’re worked up about something else happens a lot!
So come on!
Don’t move. It won’t do any good if the wound opens up.
Your face. Your arms. Your chest. The top half of your body seems to be alright.
I’m going to look at your legs too. It might be embarrassing, but just bear with it.
Thank goodness. It looks like you didn’t get hurt anywhere.
Your legs always look beautiful.
I’m not trying to say that the rest of your body isn’t beautiful though. Everything about you is beautiful. You have a kind personality too. It’s almost as if you’re too good for me.
They’re nothing like my legs.
I heard this from one of my allies who’s interested in Japan… In Japan, there’s a phrase that goes “skin as beautiful as porcelain”. It’s pale, smooth and delicate. Those words suit you perfectly.
Ah… There’s a slight bruise here!
I’m the one who looks at you the most! There’s no doubt about it!
See, look carefully!
I knew it! It’s no good! Even if you don’t have any external injuries, you might have got internal injuries during the trouble we had earlier!
You should really go to the hospital and be examined!
The people chasing us? I’ll do something about it! We’ll have enough time somehow!
There’s no way I can stay calm! You got hurt like this… Because of me…
I’m never strong enough… Damn it!
You’re right. They might be watching the hospital.
Hey. Take us to the station.
We’ll look for a hotel near Sants Station.
My injuries aren’t serious. They’re just scratches.
You’re worried about me in a situation like this… That’s just like you.
We’ll start travelling to France tomorrow. It’d be better if we rested somewhere today.
You’re tired, aren’t you? That’s no surprise. Get some rest now, even if it’s only a little. You can lean against my shoulder.
You used up your physical strength, but your mental fatigue might be worse.
You’ve been feeling tense all this time, you see.
You’ll recover quickly if you get a little rest. After that… Show me your smile again. If you don’t smile… I…
Hey. What’s the matter? Answer me.
