Criminale! 3 – Tempesta
CV: Morikawa Toshiyuki
Thank you dwokita for your commission!
6AM. At a safe-house in the city of Naples. Nineteen hours have passed.
Where am I?
I see. That’s right.
Yes. I remember.
I fell asleep right after I collapsed.
I had one of those attacks when I was weakened by the gas.
My body couldn’t take it anymore.
I’m sorry. I lost control of myself again.
Sorry… I held your hand without realising it.
Did you keep holding my hand while I was asleep?
I was having a nightmare?
I see. I must have looked so pathetic.
Were you able to get some sleep?
Don’t lie. You’ve got dark circles under your eyes.
You were watching me all night?
Even though carrying me to the bed alone must have been difficult enough…
You could have left me alone. Wouldn’t it have been better for you if I just died?
Don’t you hate me? I’ve only done terrible things to you.
You could have used that gun to kill me while I was sleeping.
Don’t get angry. I know you’re not that kind of person.
I had a bad dream. It was a dream about when my family was murdered.
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve had that dream.
It always starts with a happy scene.
My father, mother and younger sister are there.
Everyone is smiling happily.
I know what happens after that. But my voice doesn’t reach them.
No matter how much I cry or shout, it doesn’t reach them.
The door gets kicked open and the sound of gunshots echoes throughout the room.
My parents had collapsed to the floor, covered in blood.
At that moment, I had gone to the kitchen to get some milk.
I quickly hid underneath the sink.
I knew I had to help them. But my body wouldn’t move.
I was scared. Several men were in front of my younger sister.
I could hear what they were saying.
She’s still a child. She doesn’t have anything to do with this.
She saw our faces.
We’ll all be dead in a hundred years anyway. It’s only a matter of time.
The gunshots sounded strangely distant.
That was the first time I’d seen someone die.
I had no choice but to look at that scene until someone rescued me.
I couldn’t leave. I was alone, staring at the pool of blood.
That scene… My parents’ bodies… My sister’s face… Her last words…
I can’t stop myself from seeing and hearing them.
Even though it’s been so many years… They’re still as clear as ever.
I’ll never forgive that man. I won’t stop until I kill him with my own hands.
There’s no need to worry. I’m just feeling a little unwell.
It’s more important that I kill him.
It gets worse as time passes by.
At this rate, it won’t be long…
Damn it… I’m so close…
When I’ve finally come this far…
Why are you holding onto me?
There’s no need for you to worry.
Just get away from me. It’s difficult to breathe because of the poison.
I might have another attack.
I could actually destroy you this time. Do you understand?
Why won’t you let go of me?
Please don’t be kind to me.
I’ll end up wanting to depend on you.
Whenever I had an attack and lost control of myself, I felt as if I wanted to go insane.
But I couldn’t even do that. I had no choice but to keep on suffering in a reality where I couldn’t go insane.
I’m afraid that everything would fall apart if I were to depend on you, even if it was only for a moment. So please let go of me.
I’m sorry. There’s no need for you to feel sorry for me with that expression on your face.
I’m nothing more than a murderer after all. I’m not someone you should be concerned about.
You think I’m kind? That’s ridiculous.
Why would you even say that?
The reason I took you away from the sewer… That was…
You’re right. If I was only thinking about revenge, then I wouldn’t have worried about you.
You didn’t breathe in too much of the poison, did you?
Although I said I was only living for the sake of revenge, it seems that I’m not a cruel person.
You don’t have to thank me. It’s not necessary for you to apologise either.
Please don’t say anything kind to me. It’ll just confuse me if you do.
Don’t be like that!
You’re the one who’s kind.
I feel strangely relaxed when I’m talking to you.
I might just be saying this to make myself feel better, but someone worrying about me is enough to make me think that I can be saved.
I’m breathing more normally too. I think I’ll be able to move a little now.
But I don’t think I’ve got much more time left before the poison takes effect completely.
Hey. Can you do one thing for me?
I want to kill him, no matter what it takes.
It seems that I won’t last much longer though.
I won’t get another chance if I let this one slip away.
No matter how dangerous it is, I want to take this last chance.
But that means I’ll have to take you with me.
As long as we can’t take these off, you won’t be free.
I could become unable to move because of what’s happening to my body.
I’m more likely to have an attack because I’m finding it difficult to breathe.
Will you still come with me?
I could force you to come along with me like I did before.
But I want to respect your feelings from now on.
Will you come with me?
You’ll do it? You can say no if you don’t want to come.
You must be scared.
I’m sorry. Thank you.
I’m going to tell you what we’ll do next then.
Yes. I’ve got a plan.
I’m not going to use you as bait again.
Since our bodies weren’t in the sewer, they must be desperately looking for us.
We caused that disturbance at the Carnevale. The police must be on the lookout.
If things go wrong, Amphisbaena wouldn’t be able to ignore it either.
We can’t draw too much attention to ourselves.
What do you think they’d do to stop us in that situation?
This is it. A train ticket.
It leaves for Rome at 8:20 this evening. I bought it before we met, just in case.
No, it’s not for us to escape. It’s going to lure them to us.
One of their main jobs is transporting contraband items.
This train is personally owned by them.
I know that much. How long do you think I’ve been following his movements?
He has never made an appearance before, but it’s different this time.
People who buy tickets for this train are marked just in case.
Normal passengers will usually be ignored though.
I’m sure they know that I’ve booked these tickets.
It’s convenient for them. They can just kill us in a train we can’t escape from.
I’m sure that plenty of his subordinates will be on that train.
He will definitely be watching from somewhere.
He’s a cautious person. He wouldn’t even believe a report from his subordinates unless he saw our bodies.
I’m going to destroy him when he least expects it.
Will you follow the plan?
But the train won’t be leaving for a while.
Can I ask for one more thing?
There’s one last place I’d like to go.
It’s around 30 kilometres away from Naples.
We can get there quickly if we take a motorcycle.
I want to visit my family’s graves.
I’m going to say goodbye to them.
9AM. A country town in the province of Caserta.  Twenty two hours have passed.
This town hasn’t changed at all. It’s so quiet.
Yes. I suppose you could call this my hometown.
I left this town when I was still a child, so I don’t really remember it.
But these cobblestones feel somewhat nostalgic.
There’s a cemetery at the top of this hill.
I want you to go there with me.
Ah… I’m sorry.
Do I look that pale?
To tell the truth, this is the first time I’ve been to their graves.
Are you surprised?
I suppose you would be.
I thought about going many times. I just couldn’t bring myself to come here though.
I walked up this hill once before, but I didn’t make it to the cemetery.
I struggled to accept the reality that my family was dead. That was when I had an attack.
I stopped visiting this town after that.
The attacks that make me turn violent are a defence mechanism which helps me escape from the reality I can’t accept.
Even now, I’m scared about whether I can face this.
Hmm? Why’d you hold my hand all of a sudden?
You’ll take me there?
I might end up turning on you if I have an attack.
You don’t mind that?
Of course it’s not okay!
This is unbelievable…
The poison is spreading throughout my body, but it somehow feels lighter.
I feel as if I’ll be able to walk to the top of the hill.
Got it. Will you hold onto me so that I don’t run away?
You’re right. As long as we have the handcuffs on, I can’t escape from you.
That makes me feel strangely relieved right now.
Yes, I’m fine. Let’s go.
Hmm? There’s a florist over there.
Can we go in?
Yes. I haven’t seen them for a long time.
I want to bring them some flowers.
This shop is bigger than I thought it’d be.
It’s difficult to choose when there are this many flowers.
Excuse me. I’d like a bouquet of flowers.
I’m not really sure what kind of bouquet I want…
Hey… What kind of flowers do you like?
This one? Alright then.
Please use this as the main flower in the bouquet. I’ll leave the rest of the bouquet up to you. It doesn’t have to be a big one.
That’s good enough.
Could you also wrap one of these up?
Thank you. I’m just not used to shops like this one, so I don’t know what to do.
Is it really that strange for me to be at a florist?
You don’t have to be so honest. I’m well aware that I look out of place in a lovely shop like this one.
You fit right in here though.
Yes. You look just like a flower.
You’re cute and smell sweet.
I think you’d make a beautiful bouquet if you were wrapped up.
What’s the matter? Why are you blushing?
I meant it as a compliment. Did it bother you?
I’m glad it didn’t…
Ah. Is it done?
It’s a beautiful bouquet. How much will it be?
Alright. There you go.
Please keep the change.
We’re ready now. All we have to do is go to the cemetery.
Before we go… I want you to have this.
No. I don’t just want you to hold it for me. It’s for you to keep.
I won’t be satisfied unless I give you something.
It doesn’t make up for what you’ve been through, but I want you to forgive me.
I only bought one so it wouldn’t be too much to carry.
It shouldn’t get in your way, seeing as it’s a small flower.
You can throw it away when I’m not looking if you don’t want it.
I see. That’s fine if you want to keep it.
Shall we go? My family is waiting.
 Caserta is a province in Southern Italy. Its capital is also called Caserta and is famous for the Royal Palace of Caserta.
11AM. A cemetery at the top of a small hill. Twenty four hours have passed.
Father… Everyone… I’m sorry I took so long to come here.
I’m sorry I couldn’t save you back then.
I’ve said what I want to say.
Now I’ve done everything I need.
I’m thankful to you too.
Thank you for praying for my family.
I’m sure that they’re all happy.
Yes. There’s no need to worry. It doesn’t seem like I’m going to have an attack.
It’s been a long time since I last felt like this.
I’ve never felt this way in the years that I’ve been alone.
I feel as if I’ve finally been able to face things.
Don’t worry. It just hurts a little.
Come on. Let’s go back to Naples.
I’m sorry you had to come with me.
But the sun was shining just a few moments ago…
It looks as if it’s going to start pouring down. Let’s find somewhere to shelter from the rain.
It’s a good thing this shed was close by. I hope the rain stops soon.
We got pretty wet out there.
Are you alright?
It doesn’t seem like it…
Come this way. You’ll get cold if you stay near the door.
Your body feels cold.
The both of us will catch a cold if we stay like this.
The poison might also spread faster if I’m weakened.
I don’t know how much longer I’m going to survive.
That’s an unlucky thing to say?
Don’t worry. I’ll force myself to keep going until I get my revenge.
What about after that?
I haven’t really thought about it.
If I survive… Hmm…
Well… The old me probably had no reason to live.
Or maybe I had been driven mad from the pressure of the reality I had been left with.
But if I’m allowed to make a wish for the future…
I want to stay by your side.
I thought that depending on someone else would make me unable to confront things, so I never let my guard down.
Things are different now. I feel as if I’m truly satisfied when we touch.
My heart feels as if it’s being cleansed when I sense your warmth.
I think about how wonderful it would be if I could spend more time with you.
Hmm? Are you cold?
You can hold onto me more tightly.
That should warm you up, even if it’s only a little.
Are you still cold? If only we had something to dry ourselves with.
Your hair is wet and your cheeks feel cold.
Your eyes and lips are wet too.
I’m sorry… But may I kiss you?
I feel really calm. It’s strange for me to feel this way.
Tell me if you don’t like this.
I’ve done a lot of terrible things to you.
I don’t want to do anything else that makes you unhappy.
But I want to touch you.
I want to feel you close by.
Will you let me do that?
Don’t be so nervous.
You’ll make me nervous too.
I won’t do anything that frightens you again.
There’s no way I could do that.
I promise that I’ll take good care of you.
No… I can’t stop my feelings from coming out.
Your skin looks beautiful.
I might leave lots of marks on your skin, but I want you to forgive me.
Even though those marks will eventually disappear, just for now…
You don’t mind?
If you say things like that, then I really won’t hold back.
You dummy. You should be a little more cautious around me.
Do your ears tickle?
Hey… If you move around that much…
I told you so. Your hair got caught on the chains.
Stay still. If you pull it the wrong way, your hair will get pulled out.
I’ll take it off for you.
Is this it?
Come to think of it, the chains got caught on one of the festival decorations before.
Do you remember when I untangled them?
You were pretty nervous back then.
Did you think I was going to bite you?
Just like this…
Your reactions are completely different from before.
Alright. Got it.
Your hair is fine too.
You look really beautiful.
You don’t mind, do you?
I want to kiss your hair and ears over and over again.
The blush on your neck looks beautiful too. I can feel your warmth when I touch you.
Does it tickle?
Then how about this?
There’s a clear mark there.
Look, right here. You can see it too, can’t you?
Don’t look away.
It’s proof of my feelings for you.
I’m going to disappear soon.
I don’t want to have any regrets though.
I want to remember everything about you and this day.
I’d like you to remember it too.
That’s why I want you to feel me even more.
With your whole body…
I shouldn’t touch you here?
I can’t stop when you say it in that kind of voice.
If you really don’t like it, then say it properly.
What was that? I couldn’t hear you.
You don’t mind, do you?
I see. I wasn’t trying to tease you when I asked that question.
I really want to take good care of you.
And teasing someone is more like this…
You won’t be able to look away if I do this.
I’m not going to let you escape.
You can’t take it any longer?
You’re being stubborn as usual.
I’m surprised you can keep a straight face when you’re reacting this easily.
Your neck too…
It’s alright. I’ll make sure it doesn’t hurt.
Don’t hold back. Let me hear your voice.
This will probably be the last time.
Don’t look at me like that. I didn’t mean to make you feel sad.
The poison is slowly eating away at me. Nothing can change the truth of that.
But I feel calm because you’re with me.
Even though I’m about to kill someone I hate…
You’re right. I feel a slight sense of regret now.
I might have had a calmer life if I had spent it with you.
But that’s nothing more than a dream.
It’s nothing like reality. It’s just my imagination.
My true self won’t have anything left once I get my revenge.
Not even my life…
What? You want to live with me…
You’re the only one who’s ever said that.
It makes me happier than anything that’s ever been said to me.
I’m glad I met you.
8PM. In front of Naples Central Station. Thirty three hours have passed.
They’re here. That’s the car.
Just stay behind me. I’ll be done soon.
I’m fine. You don’t need to worry.
I just need enough strength to shoot him.
Once I do that, everything will be over.
He’s coming. Stay back!
He’s here, just as I expected.
It’s fine! I’m not going to lose control of myself.
I won’t go mad when you’re with me.
Did I get him?
He’s still alive…
He used his men as a shield…
He should be dead, but he got away with nothing more than a few scratches.
It’s meaningless if he doesn’t die. I’m not going to let him escape.
I’m okay. Hurry up! We have to follow him!
What’s the matter? You dropped something?
This is…the flower I gave you…
You had it with you?
What are you doing?
Now’s not the time to worry about that. Let’s go!
There he is! Over there!
I missed the target… I only managed to hit his legs.
But at least he won’t be able to move now.
You’re trying to escape by crawling on the ground like that?
I’m so close though…
Don’t worry. I can still stand.
I don’t have any strength left in my hands… Damn it…
Move! Just long enough for me to aim and pull the trigger…
You don’t need to support me!
I’m going to kill someone.
This is my revenge. There’s no need for you to get your hands dirty.
You’re trying to help me again, like you always do.
I’m sorry. Please support my arm like that.
I won’t miss. We’re going to pull the trigger together.
This is the end. Is there anything you want to say?
You’re begging for your life after all that’s happened?
You think I’d forgive you after you killed people who begged you for help?
That’s right. I’m going to die soon. The poison is eating away at my body.
As long as I can drag you down to hell, then that doesn’t matter at all.
Don’t move! What are you trying to find?
There’s an antidote… What are you talking about?
That bottle… Is it really the antidote?
Are you asking me to let you go in exchange for that?
How ridiculous. No matter what happens to me, my will won’t change.
Don’t change your mind. There’s no need to worry about me.
Keep holding onto my arm. No matter what happens to me…
Alright… Thank you.
Is he dead?
It’s really over now…
I did it…
I’m sorry. I don’t have the strength left to hold onto you.
But there’s one more thing I need to do.
I’m looking for something. He should have it with him.
Got it. Thank goodness.
He’s a worthless man who doesn’t even trust his subordinates.
I thought he would have it.
I’m sure this is the key to the handcuffs.
Now you’ll be free. Hurry up and show me your hand.
I can use this key to let you go.
What are you doing? Show me your hand.
Don’t worry about me.
There’s nothing left for me anyway.
You’re different though. So you should…
Thank goodness. It really was the key.
Hurry up and run away. It’ll be dangerous for you to stay here.
If you go back to Rome, my allies will find somewhere you can hide.
I’m sorry I can’t take you there.
Don’t look at me like that… There’s no need for you to feel sad.
I knew this would happen.
How strange… I feel a little lonely without the handcuffs.
The hours I spent connected to you must have made me happy.
Revenge was the only thing that kept me going, but you helped me remember happier times.
I really am grateful.
So I want you to escape…
Where am I?
Why is she crying?
Ah… I see… I ran out of strength and collapsed…
But I can still see her clearly…
It’s just like the dreams I always have.
This isn’t a nightmare though.
I was able to get my revenge.
She’s safe too.
Now I can finally take my time resting.
What’s the matter?
That bottle is…
What are you drinking?
Why are you coming over here?
What did you make me drink just now?
That bottle is the antidote…
8PM. In front of Naples Central Station. Going back to when thirty three hours had passed.
What’s the matter? You dropped something?
This is…the flower I gave you…
You had it with you?
What are you doing?
Come on! Make sure you don’t drop it this time.
Why do you look so surprised? There’s no way I’d be angry.
It’s fine. That man got shot in the leg. He can’t have gone that far.
I know these words won’t suit a bloody place like this one, but I didn’t want you to lose that flower either.
Come on, let’s follow him!
What’s that bag? Does it belong to him?
I suppose it got left behind because he was in a hurry.
No… Now’s not the time to worry about that!
You could have left me behind and run away.
You searched that bag for the antidote?
You might not have seen that bag if you hadn’t gone back for the flower.
It’s a little easier to breathe now.
It looks like that really was the antidote.
What were you going to do if it was actually poison?
You might have died because you made me swallow it from your mouth.
We’ll all be dead in a hundred years. So you decided to place your bets on the present.
You really are the most amazing woman in this world.
11AM. Naples Port Terminal. Forty-eight hours have passed.
There you are.
Yes, I’m feeling much better. It looks like the antidote worked.
It’ll take some time before I’ve completely recovered though.
That man was carrying several bottles of the antidote in case he breathed in the poisonous gas by mistake. He didn’t even trust his own subordinates. He was probably cautious about things like that.
To tell the truth, there’s something I’ve been thinking about.
I thought it wouldn’t have been so bad if my life came to an end after I killed him.
That was because I didn’t know what else to live for.
But when I saw you crying after giving me the antidote, I felt a sense of regret.
It might have been you who gave me strength at the very end.
Right now, it’s as if I’m living for you.
Hey. Do you have any regrets?
You could have gone back to your normal life if you had left me to die and thrown away the bracelet.
You would be a wonderful woman, instead of being known as Father’s secret child.
Abandoning me was never an option to begin with?
You didn’t hesitate to make that clear.
I’m really happy.
I’m sorry. There are a lot of things I’d like to tell you, but we’re going to talk business now.
My allies have contacted me. You’ll be going abroad for a while.
I killed that man, so things are a bit complicated at Amphisbaena right now.
It’s nothing to worry about. We found out that those men assassinated Father.
So everything I did was in accordance with our rules. I won’t be punished for it.
On the other hand, the family that man belonged to are the ones being criticised.
Because of that confusion, we need some more time before we can choose the new Father.
There’ll be a change to the date of the Conclave too.
It’d be no good if something happened to you during that time.
That’s why you’ll be hiding out in a different country for a while.
Don’t worry. Amphisbaena is a bigger organisation than you think.
We won’t have any trouble protecting you outside of Italy.
But it’ll be inconvenient for you.
Me? I’ll be leaving Italy too.
I think I’ll be hiding out somewhere for a while.
I killed the boss of a family, you see.
I’ve been told to go to the countryside for my own safety.
Revenge was the only thing I had. Now that I’ve achieved my revenge, there’s nothing more for me to do. I don’t have a reason to be a member of the mafia.
Hey… If I were to…
Ah. It looks like the ship is here.
That’s the ship you’ll be travelling on.
Yes. You’re going to leave right away.
It’s better to leave the country sooner rather than later.
You won’t be able to take much with you, but I hope you’ll understand.
Please be careful.
What’s the matter?
Is there something bothering you?
What could it be?
Hey… Those are…the handcuffs from before!
How come you have those? And why are you handcuffed to me?
We don’t have time for this nonsense! Give me that key!
What… Why on earth would you throw it into the sea?!
What have you done?!
Now we won’t have to be apart…?
You want me to come with you?
My goodness. That’s what kind of person you are though.
You’re right. We don’t have a choice if we’re handcuffed together.
I’ll follow you wherever you go.
Both of us are fugitives escaping to another country.
We should try to get along well with each other.
I need you too. This time I’ll be the one following you.
I’ll support you no matter where you go.
There was something I couldn’t tell you because I didn’t plan on living, but I want you to let me tell you now.
I love you.
Let’s survive together from now on.
