Yusaku: Alright, thanks for letting me know, sweetie. Miwako, we need to talk in private.
The CW (ended 2008)
Miwako: What do you think I am? Stupid? I know that, and I won;t stop her. But one, she's not ready, and two that's now why I grounded her. She's grounded because she stole form the Regime and because she sneaked out when she knew that she wasn't supposed to.
Yusaku: (Sighs) She snuck into the regime to help that kid. I don't see the crime in that, besides they're both going to have to work together, eventually. Just unground her, this is whole punishment is getting ridiculous.
Miwako: Yeah, she helped him take a jet so that he could invade another military base! I'm sorry Yusaku, but she needs to learn better. I may take a few weeks off, but she's staying grounded. I have to get to work, I'll see you tonight. (leaves)
Kirin: (Opens the door) How long are you going to stay in bed? It's already two in the afternoon
Kazuma: (Groans) Just a few more minutes.
Kirin: Get out of bed, besides you've missed over two week of school.
Kazuma: Yeah... right... (Slowly sits up)
Kirin: I assumed you'd call once you reached Domino City.
Kazuma: I was going to, but stuff happened. T.L.O.D. attacked and I got involved in the middle of it. (Stares out the window) So, what are Kirito and Masami doing?
Kirin: Unlike you, they're both at school.
Kazuma: I get it aunt Kirin, I'm a little behind!
Kirin: At least help me out with the garden. The vegetables need watering.
Kazuma: Yeah... (Stays silent for a moment and remembers what Yusaku told him) Aunt Kirin... have you ever noticed anything strange about me, while I was growing up?
Kirin: Huh? What do you mean?
Kazuma: (Stays silent) It's nothing, forget I said anything.
Miharu: You know you gotta tell mom that it was you and not Yume, you know?
Minako: I know! Geez, you gotta shove my guilt down my throat all the time?! I feel terrible about it!
Miharu: Just saying, anyways, lets get home before mom gets home.
Yume: (looks at watch) They should be home soon. (sighs and gets up) I need to get some air. (walks outside) She knows that she can't hide me from this forever, I haveto be the Eternal Duelist whether she likes it or not.
Miharu: Should we go look for h-
Minako: She's back.
Miharu: Huh, how do you know?
Minako: I sensed her in her room just now.
Miharu: It's freaky how you do that.
Minako: Whatever, mom is gonna be home soon and since I'm grounded, I better stay in my room. I'll see you at dinner. (Walks off to her room)
Miwako: (thought) Minako's grounding will be over after tonight, maybe I will cut down Yume's... (walks in) Hi Miharu, are your sisters in they're rooms like they're supposed to be?
Minako: I-I was the one who was eavesdropping on the T.L.O.D. and found out they were going to steal energy resources from the company, it wasn't Yume. She only took the blame for it so I wouldn't get in trouble.
