Lucky Dog 1 translations 03 Luchino Route 13

Part 1: Prison

Chapter 3

Luchino 4 Visit



I spot Luchino down the hall and trot over for a chat.


Luchino: Are you really this free every day? Or is this your plan of attack, to pretend you’re so relaxed for the sake of wandering eyes?

gianprison05 Gian: C’mon, you know that’s not true. But, you know how everyone needs a breather every now and then.


We slump up against the wall next to each other for a smoke.

Somehow or another, I’ve been seeing Luchino’s face every day. I’ve gotten much more used to it now.

luchiprison02 Luchino: By the way, Gian, got any sisters, older or younger?
gianprison06 Gian: Huh? I don’t, but why?

Where’s he going with this?

luchiprison01 Luchino: So you don’t…. Oh right, now that you mention it, I heard you were an only child…
gianprison02 Gian: That’s right. I’m famous for being the lone survivor, right?

Already slipped your mind? You’re the one who brought up the murders last time.

luchiprison02 Luchino: I just thought that if there were a doll with blonde hair like yours, she’d be pretty hot.
gianprison05 Gian: Huh? So you were thinking of asking me to introduce you to this hypothetical sister?
luchiprison02 Luchino: Yeah. Too bad you don’t have one.

luchiprison02 Luchino: A cousin would do, too.

Speaking of which, I did hears he really loves his ladies…

gianprison04 Gian: I haven’t got any relatives, so give it up.


Luchino glares at the top of my head with loss.

gianprison05 Gian: You like blondes that much?


Luchino: I love ’em. Out of them, lassies with a hue like yours are my favorite.

gianprison01 Gian: Right…


I pick at a strand of the bird’s nest atop my head.

“That mean your dead wife had hair like this, too?” almost makes it out of my mouth before I decide against it in the end. It might trigger something again.

luchiprison05 Luchino: As for the eyes… Yes, blue or green would be best… …Argh! Jail is so restricting. Can’t get good food, tobacco, or women!
gianprison04 Gian: I’ve never heard of an unrestrictive slammer.
luchiprison06 Luchino: Then why do you like being locked up in here?
gianprison04 Gian: It’s not like I like being locked up.

To my retort, though, I mentally add, ‘But I don’t dislike it either.’

There’s plenty of restrictions that come with prison life inside the walls, but it’s not like they bother me much. There’s never been anything in my life that’s been honestly unbearable.

There’s never been anything that I honestly couldn’t stand losing from the depths of my soul.

I wonder if being Boss will change me.

At least, I know I don’t want to just roll over or screw up here. No way I want to live the rest of my life in the slammer as the loser in this dogfight.

luchiprison07 Luchino: When we return to Daivan, I can’t wait to throw a huge party, and there’ll be a line of blonde ladies to serve me…

Luchino starts monologuing his dreams to a silent audience.

gianprison01 Gian: Yeah, yeah. I get it. You like blondes.
luchiprison02 Luchino: But they’ve gotta be blonde down there, too! Otherwise it’s a no-go.
gianprison11 Gian: That was too much information.

If I become Boss, I’ll be even higher ranking than this guy. It hasn’t really sunk in yet.


…Now then, who to talk to next?
