#17. Smoke in the Sky
1: Mika, now I'd like to tell you all I know about the sudden orders to send you to America.
2: Apparently the Secretary of the Department of Energy in Germany has come to our country seeking entry as a refugee. Japan, however, has no power to grant him energy, and so he went to the USA as his second choice!
1: Nothing related to this innocent can be revealed to the public. Only we know about it.
2: If someone in Germany was to find out about this, and it affected our relationship, it could have an affect on the hundreds of thousands of oil we purchase from them every year.
3: In the first class area of Flight 747, the plane you're going to board, you should run into the secretary...
4: This envelope contains his photograph. His name is Marsey Edrof.
5: Your job is to get him into the US safely. You'll be his bodyguard...
6: He has two of his own guards with him, but there is a possibility that he's being chased by agents from his home country, or even assassins, so you must be very careful!
8: A bodyguard, huh? Sounds good, but one small mistake and I'll end up nothing more than a dead body.
1: So this is the secretary of the Department of Enregy... Marsey Edrof?
2: Sheesh... I should be asking him to guard me! Either way, I'd hate to have to die for a guy like this...
1: Is he really on board...?
2: Ah... there he is! That's him!
3: Excuse me...
4: Marsey Edrof, I presume?
1: Wh-who are you?!
2: Don't move!
3: Just who are you, miss?
4: Make any funny moves, and we'll skewer your heart right here!
5: My, now isn't this a warm welcome? Makes me wonder why Japan even needed to send their own bodyguard...
1: You mean you're... Miss Mika Hino?!
2: Go ahead and check if you like. Here's my passport.
3: You won't be able to trust me otherwise, will you?
4: Please excuse us. We're sorry for suspecting you, but we're all risking our lives mission, so please don't take it personally.
5: Ah, right. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Marsey Edrof, as you guessed.
6: I did know that a secret organization in Japan was planning to send a bodyguard to protected me, but I never expected that you would be riding on the same plane...
7: You really surprised me. Especially when you suddenly named me.
1: I'm very sorry, but as I said, this is a matter of life and death.
2: Allow me to introduce my allies.
3: I've been Mr. Edrof's bodyguard since he worked at the Department of Energy. The name's Rocky.
4: Please forgive me.
5: I'm his secretary, Shakhlin.
6: Nice to meet you...
7: I'm surprised, though. Japan must really not think highly of us...
8: They thought one female bodyguard was all we needed, after all... I can't even find the words!
9: If they had sent too many, though, they only would have stood out. As long as she's an expert bodyguard, we should only need one.
10: Wow, Rocky... you're already smitten?
11: You really are quick at making passes...
12: D-don't be ridiculous!
13: Just for the record, I'm not here because I want to be.
14: So if you want me off this mission, then feel free to let me know.
15: Hey! That's enough! No more fighting, you three...
1: I'm sorry, sir, but passengers aren't allowed in the galley.*
2: Just need some water...
*: *Galley = The section of the airplane where food is prepared.
3: That scream came from economy!
1: Be quiet! Stop moving around!
3: The captain! Get the captain out here!
4: This is a hijack!!
1: A-a hijack?!
2: Ahhh! He's armed!
1: Everyone stay still!
2: It's a hijacker! Hey, let go of the stewardess! She's innocent!
1: I said get the captain out here! Didn't you hear me?!
2: Hurry it up! And if you tell him anything funny, this girl's dead meat!
4: Just so you know, this gun isn't a toy!
5: H-how did he get in on board?!
6: It must be a fake!
7: You think this is a fake?! Watch this!
3: Still wanna call this a fake?!
6: Gunshots! Looks like this is something serious... something's happening in economy!
7: It must be a hijacking! The captain's running out!
8: A hijacking?!
9: I'll go and see.
1: OK, me too.
3: It really is a hijacking!
4: Seems that way. He just aimed his pistol at the captain...
5: L-let that stewardess go right now!
6: What is it you want? I'll give it to you.
7: But first, let the stewardess go. I'll be your hostage instead.
8: Hah! You think you can act like a saint and get away with it?!
1: You think I wanna take you as a hostage?! Don't make me laugh!
2: This whole airplane is my hostage, dammit!
3: Kehahahaha... that's right. All 350 people on board... all 11 staff members... I'm taking them all hostage! And there's nothing you can do about it, captain!
4: How did he bring that pistol on board?
1: Look closely at that gun... it's made out of hardened plastic.
2: It works the same as a normal pistol, just as long as too many shots aren't made in succession...
3: But they still would have stopped him at the gate for that...
4: He must have taken it apart...
5: and then assembled it in the bathroom once he got on board.
6: I see... hardened plastic, huh? I have heard of those type of guns...
7: Now, for my first demand!
8: I want you to turn this plane toward Germany at once!
1: Germany? Rocky... that's where you're from, isn't it?
2: Yeah, but why would he...
3: Demand #2!
4: Marsey Edrof, the Secretary from the Department of Energy, should be on board this plane!
5: I want you to bring him to me!
7: Marsey Edrof...
8: It... can't be!
9: This is terrible!
1: Mr. Edrof!
2: Wh-what?! The hijacker asked for me?!
3: Yes. And he asked them to fly the plane to Germany...
4: Goddammit... this is no mere hijacking...
5: They're... they're after me!
6: So, is it safe to assume that this is an assassin who plans to capture you and turn you in?
7: I suspect so... he's probably a dog that they sent out to prevent me from getting in to the US!
8: Shit... I didn't expect them to get on board like this...
1: But it seems like he doesn't know what you look like, sir...
2: The fact that he's naming you and asking them to bring you out to him is proof of that...
3: But this is a small plane!
4: He'll find me in no time!
5: I want my demands answered at once!
6: I am currently flying the plane to Germany.
7: But unfortunately, I didn't find the name "Marsey Edrof" on the passenger list.
8: Then he must be using a fake name!
9: Fine! Give me the intercom mic!
1: Listen up, passengers!
2: Marsey Edrof is on board this plane!
3: He needs to come out and show himself to me this instant! I'll say it again!
4: His name is Marsey Edrof!
5: Get out here! Now!!
1: C'mon! Show yourself! I know you got on this plane using a fake name!
2: Marsey Edrof! Come on doooown!
3: W-we'll be fine, sir! Just stay here...
5: I don't think he's on board. No one is coming forth...
6: Shuddap! I know he's here!
7: Alright, fine. If he doesn't want to come out, then I'll just have to do this...
1: Watch this, you shitheads!
2: This isn't my fault! It's Edward's! You got that?!
3: Aaahh! He's pushing the stewardess into the bathroom!
4: How could he...
5: Get in there!
1: You hear me?! No matter what happens in here, it isn't my fault! It's Marsey Edrof's fault!
3: Ah! Ahh! Aaahh!
4: He... he's a monster!
6: Is Marsey Edrof really aboard? Where is he?!
7: Get out here!
8: If you're here, and you'd better show yourself, you coward!
9: That poor girl!
10: You coward!
11: Sir... you have to wait this out. It... it's nothing...
1: Wait. Marsey Edrof's right here.
2: Wh-where is he?!
3: Over there!
5: Sh-she betrayed us!
1: Where? Where's Marsey Edrof?!
2: Over there!
3: He's sitting in first class!
1: I don't believe it... Hino Mika... she betrayed us!
2: Some bodyguard she is! What a joke!
3: It... it's all over. We were so close... but now we're ruined, all because of one assassin!
4: We were so close to America, too...
5: Where is he?
6: Don't you see him? Right over there.
7: That tall man in the black suit...
8: Black suit! B-but that's me!
9: /Sh-she's making him target me instead of Mr. Edrof...
10: B-but... I-I...
1: Don't panic, Rocky. You've been my bodyguard for years.
2: Act like you're me, then wait for the right chance and kill him!
3: He's right, Rocky. Just be careful...
5: Get over here! What are you waiting for?!
6: Heheheh... so you're Edrof!
7: Th-that's right. Marsey Edrof!
8: Are you sure he'll be OK?
9: Shh! Just be quiet, Shakhlin!
1: Don't you fuck with me!
2: You think I was born yesterday?!
3: You think they'd sent me onto this plane without even letting me know what the target looks like?!
5: That's the man! The man in the sunglasses!
6: Bring him out! Right now!
7: H-he knows your face, sir...
1: Yeah! You're the guy! Get over here!
2: We sure went to a lot of trouble to find you, Edrof...
3: Take off the sunglasses!
1: Th-they did it!
2: Shakhlin! Get back! This is dangerous!
4: I'm gonna fuckin' kill you all!!
4: Where are you hiding?!
1: Uaahh! He blew the window open!
1: This is a serious emergency!
2: A window on the right side has been punctured!
1: We're going down! The difference between the inner and outer air pressure needs to be minimized! We're heading straight down!
2: Our landing gear is down!
3: Bring out the wheels and maximize air resistance!!
1: Control Tower! This is #207!
2: We have a serious emergency! We're heading straight down to prevent air pressure increasing due to a punctured window!
1: We're 30,000 to 10,000 feet high!
2: #207! SOS!
3: Put on your oxygen masks!This is bad!!
4: I hope the passengers get theirs on properly!
5: I can't see anything! The fog's thick below us!
1: I can't breathe!
3: Stretch your neck out and breathe slowly!
4: What's going to happen to this plane?!
1: W-we're gonna die! We're all gonna die in here!
2: What are those asshole pilots doing?!
3: Shut up! Who do you think caused this? This is all your fault!!
4: Yeah! You're the one who blew out the window with your gun, you jackass!
1: Oh yeah?! You all really wanna die that badly, huh?!
1: Aaahh! The dashboard!!
2: Uwahhh! The cockpit's on fire!!
3: There is a fire in the cockpit! Our dashboard has been completely destroyed!
4: We are no longer able to go on piloting this aircraft! Control tower!
6: We-we're dead meat...
1: Control tower! Control tower! This is #207! Do you read us?!
2: We are unable to land! Heavy fog is clouding our vision...
3: It's no good, sir! They aren't replying!
4: We'll have to make an emergency landing!
5: Let the passengers know!
6: Passengers, we will now begin an emergency landing!
7: Tighten your seat belts, bend forward, and hold your hands around your head!
2: [The Crocodile Precinct
2: Wh-what an awful dream!
2: I just kept falling and falling...
3: Those dreams mean bad things, right?
4: And Mika's on a plane right now...
5: D-don't tell me...
6: Don't tell me...
7: My dreams always never miss the mark!
8: I predicted an earthquake, getting bit by a dog, and losing 10,000 yen only to pick up 10 yen! It all happened!
1: Boss! Mika's airplane, it...
2: Huh? Where is everyone...
3: I can't just sit around here and wait...
4: Mika might be in danger...
5: Yes, this is the Crocodile Precinct.
6: This is the airport police. Flight #207, which left for the USA tonight, just disappeared from our radar ten minutes ago. Just before they disappeared, they reported an emergency situation...
7: Wh-what?! That's the plane Mika was on!
1: We can't see anything! 30%!
2: We're at 500 off the ground! Can't see anything below!
3: W-wait, that's...!!
1: Ahh! A palm tree! An island!
2: It's an island! We may be able to crash land on it!
3: Turn to the left! Cough, hack!
1: A beach! And there's no more fog!
2: We're going to crash land there! Everyone, protect your heads and keep your feet down!
3: Here we go!!
4: Aahh! God!!
1: This is a nightmare! Aaahhh!
3: We're on the ground! We made it!
1: We made it! We're on the ground! We're safe!
2: It's a miracle! Praise the Lord!
3: What are you saying, you idiots? The ship's on fire! We need to get out!
4: Everyone, this is your captain! Thanks to all your help, we successfully landed! Please follow the stewardesses' instructions and exit the aircraft!
5: We are in shallow waters, but the plane is still being flooded and is still on fire. Please exit at once!
6: People who cannot swim must wear life vests!
7: Please do not panic and let women and children escape first!
1: Don't push! Stay in a single file line!
2: Are you hurt, Mr. Edrof?
3: I'm fine...
4: I still can't believe this happened.
5: Pfft... I knew this wouldn't go well.
6: More importantly, where did that hijacker go? He's still going to come after me!
7: He wasn't wearing his seatbelt or his oxygen mask when the plane crash-landed, sir. I bet the shock killed him.
1: /This has turned into one hell of a trip, and it's only just begun...
2: Hey, what's this island called?
3: I dunno! It's probably some deserted island in the South Seas!
4: A deserted island! Are you kidding me?!
2: [The Crocodile Precinct
4: Rin! Wake up! Mika's plane crashed in the Pacific! They lost contact with it!
7: She's gone!
8: Boss! Rin left a note!
1: Boss, we got an emergency phone call about Rin's plane crashing last night...
2: I know something must have happened to her. I'm going to the US to find out what happened!
3: Wh-what?! She must have gotten special emergency permission to go overseas without asking me!
4: Th-that means she used my seal too...
5: But boss, think about it. Mika and Rin are like two sides of the same coin...
6: Still, they lost track of the plane in the Pacific. There's no proof that it made it all the way to the US...
7: But I'm sure Rin just couldn't bear to sit here and wait!
8: She's probably planning to help them search for the plane.
9: [New Tokyo Airport
1: This island is only about 10km around!
2: I don't see any houses or people, either...
3: So it is deserted after all!
1: How are we going to get off here, captain?!
3: Luckily, the whole plane wasn't burned up, so we can fix the radio.
4: Just please wait a bit.
5: So you'll call for help as soon as the radio is fixed?
6: Where is this island, anyway?
7: All of our compasses and radar burned up, so I can't be sure, but it's in the Pacific. I'm guessing somewhere near Hawaii...
8: Doesn't look like we'll be able to count on that captain for much.
9: They must be in an uproar back home.
10: I never thought I'd actually come to a deserted island like this!
11: This could end up being a little paradise, though!
12: We've got all the food we need!
1: Wow! Look how big this banana is!
2: There are papayas too!
3: And coconut juice!
4: Hey, if you drink that much...
5: Oh, right...
6: Think there's a bathroom around here?
8: You'll just have to get used to air drying everything!
9: Let's go, Mika-san!
10: Hey, that spot over there looks good.
2: Aaah!! Th... the hijacker!!
