[118]
Researcher- Welcome home, Oscar-sama.

Researcher2- Welcome home.

[119]
Oscar- Welcome home...?
It seems you've gotten thoroughly used to life in the Flying City.

Pastha- Oscar-sama, what is the condition of the Sanctuary?

Pastha- Was there some danger...?

Oscar- Oh...

Oscar- I went to a bit of a trouble spot.

*flutter*

Oscar- It has already been settled.

[120]
Oscar- The Sanctuary is quiet.
But the outside world is clearly losing it's balance.
Coming back to this new world, I realize the danger.

Oscar- All the Guardians probably feel that unease.

Oscar- Oh, Pastha, my luggage is being sent later. Sorry, but please arrange for it to be sent
to my residence.

Pastha- I understand.

[121]
Oscar- I got hold of a cask of fine wine on the main planet.
I intend to party with the ladies tonight, after so long...

Ange- Um... I've come to take my leave of Pastha-san.

Oscar- Missy!?

Oscar- It's already past time for cultivation, isn't it?

Ange- There are things on the continent I'm concerned about a bit, and I've been doing various
research, so...

Oscar- *cough*

Pastha- Well then, I'll prepare a carriage for you right away.

Ange- Oh, no thank you.

[122]
Ange- Today I intend to walk home.

Oscar- From here to the special dormitory?
That's pretty far, isn't it?

Ange- Huh? Not really.

Oscar- And it's already getting dark, right?

Researcher- Yes.

Ange- It's fine. There's nothing dangerous in the Flying City.

Oscar- That's true, but when it gets dark, you can't see where you're stepping.

Oscar- You're the one who trips on clear paths, aren't you, missy?

*typical*

Ange- Oscar-sama!

[123]
Oscar- Alright, I'll escort you.

Ange- Oh, but...

Oscar- Do you think I can allow a woman to go home alone?

Ange- *Woman...?*

Ange- Oscar-sama calling me a "woman" is more dangerous, isn't it...?
*ufufu*

Oscar- Hey now, missy.
*That's a suspicious expression.*

Ange- I'm kidding. I trust you, Oscar-sama.

Ange- Pastha-san, goodbye.
*bow*

[124]
Ange- Uwaa, the sky is such a pretty color!

Ange- The truth is, I wanted to see this as I went home.

Ange- It's strange. This place is floating in the sky above the planet.
Actually, I didn't really realize it until recently. It's no different than a normal town.

Oscar- Randy must be dragging you around everywhere.

Ange- What do you mean dragging around.

Ange- He's been showing me various places.

*Imaginary Picture
Randy- Fight!
Ange- Th... that's all I've got!*

Ange- Even though I've been living here all this time, there are a lot places I don't know
about and it's fun.

[125]
Ange- I've come to love the Flying City.
And this planet with the continents, and the new world.

Oscar- I see.

Ange- Oscar-sama.

Ange- What's happening on the main planet?

Ange- Everyone is going back to the Sanctuary more often.

[126]
Ange- Is something dangerous going on?

Did she hear my conversation with Pastha?

Oscar- It's not anything dangerous.

Oscar- As the Queen Alternation approaches, it seems the balance of the cosmos is crumbling a little.
It's surfacing recently.
Suppressing that is among our duties.
It's probably because the cosmos is impatiently waiting for the birth of new Queen.

[127]
The election of the next Queen is hope.

Ange- I wonder if I can become the Queen that everyone hopes for?

Oscar- Well, that depends on you, missy.

*pat*

Ange- Kya!

Oscar- But eventually the time will come that you have to choose a path.
Be prepared for that.

[128]
Oscar- Well, missy. I'll be happy if I can show up in your dreams even a little.

Ange- That's impossible!
*bluntly*

Ange- Oscar-sama, from here on you're going to be busy with "grown-up socializing", aren't you.

Ange- But please don't drink too much.
Good night.
*Thank you.*

Oscar- The mood's kind of been ruined.
Tonight, I guess I'll go drink at Olivie's place.

[129]
Robot- WAIT FOR ME, ZEPHEL-SAMA.
PLEASE WALK ALONG A MORE PATH-LIKE PATH.

Zephel- That's why I told you not to come with me, didn't I?

*bang*

Zephel- *I wish I had turned him off.*

Oscar- Zephel.

*rustle*

Zephel- Wah!

Zephel- Why, if it isn't Oscar.
*You surprised me.*

Oscar- Funny meeting you here.

Zephel- *This is bad for my heart*

Oscar- What are you doing at this hour?

[130]
Zephel- I was tinkering with mecha at the Holy Palace and it ended up getting late, so I was
just going back to my residence...

Robot- WHEN ZEPHEL-SAMA IS LEFT ALONE, HE DOESN'T COME BACK TO THE MANSION FOR DAYS.

Robot- SO I WENT TO PICK HIM UP.

Oscar- I see, thank you.

Zephel- Keep your big mouth shut!

Robot- *teehee*

Zephel- Hm?

Zephel- Oscar, what are you holding?

Zephel- Is that wine!?

Oscar- I'm not giving it to you.

*snatch*

[131]
Oscar- Children should hurry home and go to bed!

Zephel- Don't treat me like a kid!

Oscar- If I let you drink wine, Luva will give me a lecture.

*long winded*
Luva- *Ah, how should I put this... Zephel is still underage, and um... alcohol is harmful for
his developing mind, you see.*

Oscar- *fuming*

Oscar- It's mental torture!

Zephel- It's ok. He won't find out.
Right now, he has his hands full with Rosalia, doesn't he?

Rosalia...

Zephel- Not that it matters to me.

[132]
Oscar- A brat is a brat after all. Are you jealous?

*snatch*

Oscar- Zephel!

Zephel- *nyah*

Zephel- It's fine. I'll just have a taste.

Oscar- A taste? Why you...

Zephel- Hey!

*whirr*

ROBOT- YES SIR! I THOUGHT SOMETHING LIKE THIS MIGHT HAPPEN!!

*gleam*

[133]
Zephel- Now, now, let's have a drink.
Right?

*pouring*

Oscar- See here, you...

Zephel- I generally don't understand her.
Even though she showed guts, going on about becoming Queen, becoming Queen.

Oscar- Do you mean Rosalia?

Zephel- Suddenly, she's so clingy, going on about Luva-sama, Luva-sama so much, it's
depressing.

[134]
Zephel- Although, she's hanging around with him, perfectly understanding Luva's good points.
She's a pretty nice person.

Zephel- So's that crybaby.

*lying back*

Zephel- Recently, she's gotten bold.
Why do girls keep changing?

Zephel- Hey, Oscar.
I don't want to make them Queens against their will.

Zephel- If they don't want to become Queen, that's fine.
I can't lend my strength to an unmotivated Queen...

[135]
Oscar- Zephel?

Robot- HE'S FALLEN ASLEEP.

Oscar- Even he has his complexities, doesn't he.

*snore*

Robot- YES...

Oscar- I can't lend my strength to an unmotivated Queen... you say?
That's right.
I feel the same way.

Oscar- Because the Queen is a special woman to whom I offer my sword and my heart.

[136]
Clavis- You're unexpectedly romantic.

Oscar- Clavis-sama!
What are you doing here...

Clavis- This place faces the rear garden of my residence.

Oscar- ... I'm sorry for disturbing you.

[137]
Oscar- Clavis-sama, were you taking a walk?

Oscar- Or is there a woman you're visiting by night?

*heh*
Clavis- Well now...

*snore*

Oscar- Clavis-sama, you were present at the previous election of the Queen.
What sort of Queen Candidate was Her Present Majesty?

[138]
Clavis- ... I've forgotten it.
The past.

That lively golden-haired girl.

Clavis-sama?

[139]
Clavis- We can't leave him like this.

*limp*

Robot- OH...

Clavis- Take that and come with me.
I can prepare a snack.

Clavis- I'm sure Julious remembers thoroughly in his own reminiscences.

[140]
Oscar- What an unpredictable person.

Oscar- Well, sometimes nights like these aren't bad either.
