Ai who had been playing with the ants by throwing it in an ant lion’s nest lazily fires a retort at the director. No, it might be true that she oozes that mad aura, but come on her character is far too different.
[Yeah, you’re quite insane. Could you try playing the heroine?]
I think that was a tough call since unlike me Ai doesn’t remember the script. I honestly want to refuse.
[No problem. It’s a scene with children playing. There’s no need to stick with the dialogue.]
[However, Ai’s appearance is far from Japanese. Would she fit in the Japanese setting? Wouldn’t that cause inconsistency when Sayuri plays later?]
[We can fix that with makeup, also realism and reality are two different things. Example Setsuko Hara’s face is fluffy but did she have any trouble acting as a Japanese woman?]
[No her performances were all great. I see now what you meant.]
Nori noddingly approved. No matter how much a future genius author Nori is she is indeed no match to current legends.
[Don’t go putting me in your story. Even if it’s an act, there’s no way I’m playing a role of a loser and a bullied. You want me to kill you, old bastard?]
[Ah! That’s it I wanted that rebellious spirit! Come get in front of the camera!]
Despite Ai berating him, Director Shirayama happily kneeled in front of her. Was he a masochist?
[I told you I don’t want to! Do you want me to spill your blood for you to understand?]
[Ai. If you do what I say I would bring you to a place where you can train to be strong enough to kill Diamond right away. So, bear with it for now]
I whispered in Ai’s ear, who was seriously in the verge of killing Director Shirayama.
[Really? If I found out that you’re lying, I’ll stick your head on that old man’s ass okay?]
[Of course, I’m a man of my word]
I answer confidently at Ai’s threat
[I can’t help it, I don’t feel like playing tag if I got caught and still get out in one piece]
Ai then filled the hole of the ant lion’s nest and lifted her body up…
Well Ai-chan is an enhanced human who experience a deadly game of tag in mom’s laboratory, so usual ones don’t thrill her.
[Alright, then let’s resume shooting… 5 , 4 , 3, 2, 1]
Thus the filming resumed as Director Shirayama wished. Then I moved to the shadow of the precinct while being aware of the camera.
