Part 1: Prison

Chapter 3

Giulio Visit 4

I wonder why I see him around everyday these days.  Then again, well, I’m the one seeking him out.  Same goes for today.

Something about him concerns me…  Probably because it feels like he’s hiding something under that obedient attitude of his?

Either way, I’m pretty sure whatever it is, it’s not hostile.  How to check this gut feeling for sure, though…

Mm.  Maybe the infamous Mr. “Giulio the Knife” just lives listening to a different tune from everyone else?

Gian: …Hey.  Which street was it at again?  I’ve tried but I really can’t remember where we met before.

Giulio: Is … that so…

Giulio replies, but it doesn’t sound like it bothers him.

Gian: What was I like at the time?  How old?

Giulio gives my face a loooooooong look.  What?

Giulio: If I recall…

A rustle and Giulio’s hand is out, pointing at my left collarbone.

Giulio: This tattoo…

This time, he gives a looooooong look at my tattoo.

And then, a small smile.

Giulio: …I believe this tattoo was still new.  You had only recently entered the family.
Gian: I-Is that right?  Then that’d be about when I was 16.  No wonder I don’t remember.
Giulio: …This … is the same as well.

And then, his finger lowers towards the center of my chest and points at my gold ring pendent.  It’s a memento from my murdered mom.

Gian: Oh, yeah.  I’ve had this since I was a little tyke.
Giulio: Yes, that is true… …Oh.

He hooks the gold ring around his finger and brings it up lightly when Giulio’s eyes move towards my hand.

A loooooong look … at my … right hand?

Gian: Th-There’s nothing here…

I unconsciously open up my right hand and show him my palm.

There’s several pale lines, scars, probably from some knife.  I really was a mischievous brat back then…

Giulio grins … or maybe it’s just my imagination.

Giulio: Oh.  …Dirt.

He pulls out a handkerchief from his pocket and wipes off my dirty fingers.

Gian: Just how many handkerchiefs you got on you?  That’s some high quality stuff.

This one’s not the one he’d used to wipe off my drool during my nap last time.  The color’s different.

Giulio: Mm…

Aah, right.  He was born pretty high up the social ladder.  Probably got a good education and all that.

Gian: Thanks.
Giulio: …It was … nothing.

…Yep, as I thought, his pace’s definitely a mystery, but it doesn’t look like he’s someone I can’t handle.  These are my thoughts as I look into Giulio’s face.

…Now then, who to talk to next.

    [Mm. Maybe the infamous Mr. “Giulio the Knife” just lives listening to a different tune from everyone else?] <– Wasn't his nickname 'Giulio the Knifer'?

      I think I used “Knife.” Was it the manga that used “Knifer?” I’m still playing with that nickname, to be honest. The literal translation is “knife-wielder” but that can’t really be used. I’m playing with “Slasher” or “Butcher,” but… “Knifer” may be possible, but it’s also a bit weird. Sounds kinda pansy-ish to be honest ^^; (Now watch ME being the one using Knifer. Oh well. I can make fun of myself??!)
