59.1

Setsuna:                              Good evening, everyone.

Setsuna:                              We are the alumni of the former Houjou High School Light Music Club.

59.2

Setsuna:                              There were three members… Myself, Haruki, who is currently present, and one more, who is making her own way overseas.

Setsuna:                              We may be short by one person, but we decided to get back together today, for the first time in three years.

59.3

Setsuna:                              So, please listen…

61.1

Narration:                          Kazusa has gone, leaving the two of us.

                                             The piano that used to guide us is no longer here.

61.2

Narration:                          The meaning may have been slightly different for me and Setsuna, but we’ve both been lonely and sad.

                                             I doubt we’ll ever completely get over that desolate feeling.

62.1

Narration:                          Nevertheless, the two of us will keep going together.

62.2

Narration:                          This time…

                                             Yes, this time.

Setsuna:                              Haruki…

Setsuna:                              ku—

FX:                                        Mmph

64.6

FX:                                        Bang

FX:                                        Gasp

64.7

Setsuna:                              H-hey, Haruki-kun, listen…

Narration:                          Before we went onstage, I promised her…

Haruki:                                Please, Setsuna, don’t say anything.

65.1

Setsuna:                              After the concert is over, I want you to take me by force.

65.2

Setsuna:                              I know that singing will make me remember what happened back then…

Setsuna:                              But, kissing isn’t what I want…

FX:                                        Mph

Setsuna:                              Don’t put it off like this…

Setsuna:                              And, when I remember, I might start to hate you.

65.3

Setsuna:                              Just come to me already.

65.4

Setsuna:                              No matter how much I resist, don’t listen to me. Promise you’ll take me… Please.

66.1

Setsuna:                              You’ve been my first for everything, Haruki-kun.

66.2

Setsuna:                              My first kiss…

Setsuna:                              My first real love…

Setsuna:                              The first one who ever touched me…

66.3

FX:                                        Mph

Setsuna:                              But…

Setsuna:                              Mm!

66.4

Setsuna:                              You’ve been so cruel to me… So now you have to take me in your arms!

66.5

Setsuna:                              Tighter, tighter… strong enough for the past three years…

Setsuna:                              Hold me!

Make love to me!

67.1

Haruki:                                Setsuna!

Narration:                          Setsuna has been dragging what happened three years ago behind her this whole time.

67.2

Narration:                          Even as I felt anger and sadness over having the past brought up in the middle of our most intimate moment, I continued to look for redemption, put all of my apologies and atonement into this act between us as a man and a woman, and gave them to her.

67.3

Setsuna:                              …Now you know.

Haruki:                                Know what?

 

Page 68

68.1

Setsuna:                              The real me.

68.2

Setsuna:                              Moody…

Setsuna:                              Spiteful…

Setsuna:                              Dirty…

Setsuna:                              My personality is a hopeless failure.

68.3

Setsuna:                              Please… don’t hate me.

Sesuna:                               I know it’s a lot to ask… But please, accept me as I am.

Haruki:                                Setsuna…

69.1

Setsuna:                              I’m sorry…

FX:                                        Rustle

Narration:                          All of that is my fault, so it’s my responsibility to take it on.

FX:                                        Plip

69.2

Haruki:                                You may not believe me…

Narration:                          I’m going to tell her.

Haruki:                                The Setsuna here in my arms…

69.3

Haruki:                                is the one I love most in the world.

69.4

Setsuna:                              Ah…

FX:                                        Drip

FX:                                        Snff

69.5

Setsuna:                              Uwaaah!

70.1

Narration:                          After that, we made love with everything we had.

                                             To warm our hearts and bodies, which had gone cold and numb over three years…

70.2

Narration:                          Three days passed, but of course, that wasn’t enough to remove the chill entirely.

                                             We promised that we would see each other once a week, and we finally went home.

70.3

Narration:                          As expected, her father told her off and forbade her from spending the night anywhere else…

                                             and seeing her sulking over it was adorable.

70.4

Narration:                          Time flew by, and on February 28th

                                             at Setsuna’s birthday party, two weeks late, I gave her the present that I hadn’t been able to give her three years before.

70.5

Narration:                          This is our final chapter.

70.6

Narration:                          As a conclusion to these three tempestuous years, it seems entirely too quiet…

                                             But that is exactly why…

                                             it’s a perfect ending for us.

70.7

Narration:                          The season of “White Album” is over…

                                             And spring, our season… Spring, for just the two of us… is beginning.

Haruki:                                I just got to the station.

Haruki:                                The snow is really piling up in Paris, so I was worried that I might not make it before the end of the day.

Setsuna:                              Same here! My arrival at the airport was delayed by three hours…

71.3

Setsuna:                              Sorry. I should be here in an hour or so…

                                             I’ll call you back once I’m at the station.

Haruki:                                Be careful.

Message:                            Sender: Aki Hamada

Subject: 12/25 task overview

Body: Hello, this is Hamada.

72.3

Narration:                          After I graduated college, I became a full-time employee at Kaiou…

                                             assigned to the Kaiou Graph editorial department.

                                             My days are as busy as Mari-san’s now.

72.4

Message:                            Sorry this is so last-minute, but it’s about tomorrow’s interview. I’ve sent you the details in an email attachment, so please look those over carefully. This is just an outline…

Narration:                          Today is December 24th. Starting tomorrow, I have a two-day vacation.

Haruki:                                I have plans to spend tomorrow with Setsuna…

72.5

Haruki:                                If you could just think for two seconds… No, that’s probably too much to ask.

Narration:                          Setsuna and I will attend Christmas Mass together, and then…

 

Page 73

73.1

Narration:                          as a replacement for that cheap thing, which doesn’t deserve its place on her left ring finger…

                                             as a Christmas present… I’m going to give her a once-in-a-lifetime gift.

73.2

Message:                            The camera staff is local, and they’ll meet with you the day of. All you have to handle is the interview.

Kazusa:                               Haruki…?!

73.3

Haruki:                                Huh?

Haruki:                                What, you’re already here, Setsu—

73.4

FX:                                        Whoosh

Message:                            Don’t worry about a language barrier—the subject of the interview speaks Japanese.

 

Page 74

74.1

Message:                            In fact, you’re interviewing a Japanese pianist—Kazusa Touma. She was a classmate of yours, right?

Haruki:                                Kazusa…?

76.2

Narration:                          The woman standing there had the same long, black hair as ever…

                                             but, somehow, she had managed to become even more beautiful.

76.3

FX:                                        Phew

Kazusa:                               …Well, this is a coincidence.

 

Page 77

77.1

Narration:                          I have no idea what kind of face I must be making right now.

                                             My head is racing, but my feet won’t budge.

77.2

Narration:                          I had been so sure that “White Album” was over—but, suddenly, I heard it again…
