#17. Sword of Hundreds, Sword of Thousands 
box 1: I need to save them! Sakurako...
2: Catch her! Hurry!!
box 3: When I start working, I smoke more than usual. I don't really like smoking, but I do it to keep myself from getting hungry. It also keeps me from getting tired. When I finish working, though, all my instincts come rushing back, and I eat a ton. Just writing this has made me hungry again...
2: Let me go!
4: Let me out of here!!
5: Little girl...
1: Fine. You may go.
3: I want you all to follow her. That's an order.
4: Just tell me one thing before you leave, little girl...
5: Who are you?
6: That's my stone, but I've never seen it glow like that before.
7: That stone protects the members of our clan and kills humans...
8: How are you able to alter it?
1: I don't know
3: But I'm not the only one who's been able to alter it.
4: The old woman who gave Sou his stone also kept the stone as an amulet because it had belonged to the man she loved... Your suzerain.
5: All I know is that she and I feel the same way.
6: And we aren't alone.
7: Issei and Sou's father... We all just want to be close to the ones we love. And we keep praying for their safety.
1: Are you saying that your feelings
2: are what altered the stone?
3: I'm no one special. Just a normal human.
4: That's all I can think of.
5: I'm going now.
6: Thank you, elder!
7: Little girl...
2: a sword.
3: An old legend states...
4: that there exist human warriors who are allies of our clan, and transform the stones into blades using their powerful emotions, in place of fangs...
5: She and Sou may be able to teach us the way...
7: going to leave the rest to them.
SIGN: Takayama Building
1: Issei! Sou?!
2: She's awake! Hold her down!
3: What are you doing here...
4: Sakurako! Don't move!
5: You're with her, aren't you? I think I remember seeing your face before.
6: Come to save her, huh?
1: This dog hunt really paid off.
2: First we caught a bitch, then used her to bait in two more males. What a haul!
3: Now that you're all here,
4: I only hope that one of you can tell us where the stone is.
SFX: BLAM BLAM
5: Don't dodge them too well, or they might hit your girlfriend.
SFX: BLAM (x3)
3: Stop it!
4: He has nothing to do with this! He doesn't know anything!
5: Stop it!
6: Why do you want the stone so badly?
7: I know that you're all just small fries.
8: Someone set this big hunt up and wrangled in the police as well as the government, all in order to get a single stone. Who would do something like that?
1: Enough with the questions.
2: Otherwise you really might meet the person you're talking about... as a corpse.
SFX: HOWWWL (x2)
SFX: HOWWWWL (5)
1: Please release those three.
1: Shoot her!
2: There are wolves outside...
3: She must be with them! She must have brought them here!
5: Hurry up and kill her!! We need to make an example of her, or else they'll come inside!!
6: Kill her!!
7: Run... Sou, Sakurako, Issei...
4: You little...
SFX: HOWWWWL (x3)
SFX: BLAM (x2)
1: Sou! Call the other wolves!
2: They're waiting for you to give them a signal! Order them to kill all these people!
SFX: HOWWWWL (x3)
4: You can't do that!
5: Stop, Sou!
SFX: HOWWWWWL (x3)
1: He's telling us not to come inside.
2: Are you sure?
3: It's an order. Obey it.
4: This is an order
5: from our new suzerain.
SFX: HOWWWWL (x3)
1: The elder has passed away, Sakurako.
2: Please. You must come with us.
3: Now that we have lost the elder, you're all we have left.
1: You're going, aren't you?
2: I understand. I knew this day would eventually come.
3: Ever since we found that stone.... Ever since we met Sakurako...
1: Will I ever see you again?
2: I'll come to visit you.
5: protect you!
1: No matter how far apart we are,
2: I'll protect you.
3: But I don't have fangs,
4: so please give me strength.
5: Please give me a sword,
6: strong enough to defeat any set of fangs.
