Translated by Onimal House (ping@ricochet.net)

   Steve Long, Lee Ling-Ling, Mama
A DATE!?

   Yakumo
Don't act so surprise.
It is no big deal!
Is that right, Pai!

   Pai
umm!

   Mama
Could it be you.....
not just checking in the hotel for rest, but to sleep over....

   Yakumo
What do you mean!!

   Mama
Never mind!  But don't forget to wear protection....

[rice cooker smash!]

   Yakumo
What are you talking about!!

   Long
This is great....

   Yakumo
Huh?

   Long
Haven't eat anything good lately--
That is right!  We can go to French restaurant for French cousin...
Otherwise, Tempura is fine, too....

   Ling-Ling
I don't want that!!  
I want to go to the race track for some betting!!

   Long  
Who say we are going to the race track?

   Ling-Ling
I want to go, so what?

   Pai
ummm, taste so good....

   Yakumo
Hey....  Nobody say you are coming with us....!!
Don't suspect anymore!!
I say it is a date with Pai!

   Pai
Yakumo--
What is a date?

   Yakumo
Please spare me....

   Haan Hazrat
A date?

   Ayanokouji Pai
That is right, just two of them.

   Haan
After worry and thinking for other people, he doesn't know what he is 
thinking about for himself!
and he had not made contracts with those monsters, yet.
Could that guy....

   Yakumo
Shinjuku had changed!
It changed so much in such a short time.
Do you remember?
We met for the first time here!
To be honest, I was so surprised.
You were so dirty that time.

   Pai
"giggling"
<"Yakumo!">
<"I finally found you!  Yakumo!">

   Yakumo
After meeting you, so many things had happened....
No only was I dead once....
and leaving my good friends behind....
and met Miss Huang....
If it is possible, I really would like to go back to Hong Kong one more 
time....

   Pai
Then....
Next time we go to Hong Kong together!

   Yakumo
ummm....
Ah....  All right.....
Next time!

   Haan
Yakumo that fool had already made up his mind!
There is only one way to save the world!!
That is not to find the third Sanjiyan!!

   Long
What!!
You say not to find the Sanjiyan!

   Haan
This way, After a few months, both Kaiyanwang and Benares will be 
finished!

   Ling-Ling
But, if Benares is dead....

   Haan
Just like you thought....
Yakumo will be forever....
trapped inside the sup-space!!
Today's date....
is the last one this life time!
That fool!!

   Yakumo
sigh--
All right!  Where else shall we go?
Today is the last chance to be with Pai.
Ummm, Let's have some fun....
Huh?
Where did Pai go?
<"And not even finish her cake....">
Excuse me, this girl who was just sitting here, Do you know where did 
she go....?

   Waitress
Huh?

   Customer A
Hey!
You look!

   Customer B
On my god!

   Yakumo
What?
What is she thinking about!!
That foolish girl!!


Book 21, Story 8(#144) - Nervous Date - Part II

Translated by Onimal House (ping@ricochet.net)

   Construction Worker A
How did she...

   Construction Worker B
What....Why....

   Yakumo
Excuse me, can you lower that crane, that girl is....

   Security Guard
It is too dangerous!  Don't get close!
Police will be over soon.....
Don't get near....

   Yakumo
No, she and me....

   Security Guard
Hey!  Move back!  Move Back!!

   Onlooker A
What is this, why don't they lower the crane?

   Onlooker B
Where she stands, if the crane moves she will fall down!

   Onlooker C
Suicide?  This is interesting, let's call the TV station.

   Yakumo
Hmmm....
[This is great....]
[Have to do something before it get any worse....]
[Did Benares send that guy to watch over me?]
[Great....]
[Benares...]
[probably doesn't want to create a big commotion...]
[If I don't take care of this thing fast....]
That is right...
After I call out 'Coo-Yun' on the surface of the moon, I can't use the 
spell control ball Connery left me.
I can't call out any flying monster, either.....
Damn!
Because of the power of 'Coo-Yun', The Sanjiyan's spell-destroy scroll 
probably also had disappeared.
As long as it is about Pai....
I like to take care of it for her myself!
COME ON OUT!  'SHOU-RIN'!!

   Pai
[Yakumo....]

   Yakumo
Pai!!
Pai!!

   Pai
Yakumo!!

   Yakumo
Actually climb up to such a high place!!
What are you thinking?
This is not a mountain in Tibet!
Don't cause trouble for other people!!
All the people below are troubled because of you!!

   Pai
Eh?

   Yakumo
Sigh....
Forget it!
Hurry up and come with me before anyone else gets up here!

   Pai
No.

   Yakumo
Eh?
What are you really thinking about?

   Pai
Then what are you thinking about yourself?

   Yakumo
Eh?

   Pai
Why don't you think of a way to find the third Sanjiyan?
There is still half a year till Kaiyanwang dies
If you don't find the third Sanjiyan before then....
You will be trapped in the sub-space!!
With only yourself all alone?
Yakumo....
If that happen...
We will all be Benares's hostages, 
Pai can't beat him, too!

   Yakumo
That is why I....
That is why....
I am scared, too.  I don't want to go to the sub-space, either!
I don't want to be alone by myself.....
stay in that dark space hundreds, thousands of year....
I....

   Pai
Yakumo....
I had already realized that....
If you don't come back from sub-space within half a year....
I....
will end my life immediately!

   Yakumo
What foolish non sense are you talking about....

   Pai
I don't want you to suffer the pain forever!

   Yakumo
But...But I....

   Pai
Yakumo....
Because....
We share a common life!

   Yakumo
Pai....

   Pai
So, if....
you don't plan to find the third Sanijiyan,
then there is no need to wait!
I will jump down from here....
RIGHT NOW!!

   Yakumo
How do you know my....

   Pai
Now what?  Yakumo!!  I am going to jump!!

   Yakumo
But there is no way to beat Benares....

   Pai
You look, you look....

   Yakumo
Don't fool around!  Pai!!
WA!

   Pai
Eh?

   Yakumo
No... it can't be!
I know it now!!
It is all my fault!
I definitely will think of a way to find the third Sanjiyan!!
I will come back from the sub-space no matter what!

   Pai
Really?

   Yakumo
When I said 'really', it is really 'really'!!
Hurry up and call out 'Fei-Oh'....  So heavy....

   Pai
Yea!
'FEI-OH'!  'TWAO FEEI"!
Eh?

   Yakumo
Hey!  What happen?

   Pai
Strange, no response!

   Yakumo
Don't fool around!!
No...
I can't be!
Hey!


Book 21, Story 9(#145) - Version Up

Translated by Onimal House (ping@ricochet.net)

   Wuu Guai
Mr. Long Huang, Parvati....
If we don't hurry up and help her....

   Benares
Hmmm....  
Looks like Yakumo finally makes up his mind to find the third Sanjiyan!

   Wuu Guai
I....  I am not talking about that!  Parvati is going to die soon....

   Benares
No need to worry about that!
As long as Sanjiyan encounter danger, its Wu can have infinite power!!
Ha ha ha ha!
Even in sub-space, there should be Wu with infinite power to protect its 
master?
Let's go!  We have works to do!  Wuu Guai!

   Wuu Guai
Can he really find the third Sanjiyan?

   Benares
I don't know, either!
But, as long there is Sanjiyan in sub-space, then the Wu with infinite 
power should detect Yakumo's present immediately!
They will also try their hardest to find the "exit"!
No matter what, we shall have our answer soon!
Soon....
Prepare for the ceremony!

   Wuu Guai
But....

   Benares
Let them be!

   Wuu Guai
Eh?

   Benares
You wouldn't understand....
It is useless to worry!!

   Pai
Ya... Yakumo!

   Yakumo
Err... 
My hand is already....
Why climb up to such a place!
Foolish girl!!

   Pai
I don't know, either.
When I realized, I was already up here!!

   Yakumo
What.... What are you talking about?
(Damn!!  Must be controlled by someone!!)
Let's go for it!
grab that cable!!
Hold on tight to that cable!
Then I will call out "Chin-Kuu' and let it spin silk.....
WA!
Hurry....
Hurry up....

   Pai
Umm....
I know....
I will try...  to catch...
Yea....

   Yakumo
Waa!!

   Pai
Eh?

   Yakumo
Oh no!  Here we go again....

   Pai
YAKUMO!!

   Yakumo
Huh?

   Pai
YAKUMO!!

   Yakumo
How can you be so stupid!!

   Pai
But Yakumo you....

   Yakumo
Come one out!  'Chin-Kuu'!!
Hold on to me!!
Pai!!
Errrr....
EH?
Eh?
What?

   Parvati
Look like I over did it.
That really is....
the virtue matter I created with the power of Iko.
But that virtue matter was created separately from me, and it was Pai's 
real virtue matter!
Don't get mad!  Yakumo!!
That was Pai's real feeling!

   Yakumo
But you are the one who got Pai's virtue matter on that crane in the 
first place!

   Parvati
That is also for convincing you....

   Yakumo
You are worrying about me?

   Parvati
Baka!
Who is worrying about you....
Umm....actually...I actually....

   Yakumo
By the way...

   Parvati
Eh?

   Yakumo
That virtue matter works no matter how far the distance, isn't it?

   Parvati
Eh?

   Yakumo
I really don't want to go to the sub-space alone without any contact 
with you!
But now I can go without worrying!
I....
ordering you by the name of your master!
Speak out your name!!

<'Shyr-Sy', 'Ann-Yu', 'Yih-Shyi'>

   Yakumo
I know it now!  
and you are welcome!
All right!  I have finished the contracts with the monsters.

   Haan
Finally it is time to go!  Be careful!

   Yakumo
I will!

Note:

Shyr-Sy:    stone line, turn thing into stone.
