File 22: "Is the Partnership Breaking Up?!"
-It's morning in the Traffic Section & just about everyone has noticed the apparent tension between Miyuki & Ken...Everyone that is except for Natsumi, who's just now picked it up after Aoi & Yoriko mentioned it. An urgent matter, Chief?
-Here's the urgent matter that the Chief briefs the section on: A series of minor accidents have been happening in their jurisdiction in the past month, mainly on one-way streets, narrow streets & school routes during restricted hours by drivers using those streets as shortcuts even though they're off limits. Patrols will be concentrating on these areas for the next 2 weeks(And Miyuki is tasked to prepare a simulation on these routes).
-Since coming back to Bokuto Natsumi hasn't really noticed anything off with Miyuki or anyone else until now-Ken actually avoided Miyuki as the meeting broke up & the looks on Miyuki's face back in the squad room & here in the conference room...What's going on with them?
-According to the people that Miyuki & Natsumi talked to on their rounds a lot more cars are using these restricted streets for shortcuts than they originally thought. Regular pedestrians are at risk because of these drivers and...Miyuki, is there anything you want to talk about? Anything at all?
If you say it's nothing then I guess it's okay...Hey, it's Yuuta, Shou, Maho & Megumi!
-You all say a lot of cars pass through here? "Natsumigiras", "Monster Natsumidon" & "Natsumikan"-The boys came up with some good ones about Natsumi, huh? :D
Meanwhile, it sounds like Maho's mother has some good snacks planned for her on their excursion tomorrow but Megumi...Don't worry, Miyuki will make a lunch for you too!
-Ken, you're giving up on Miyuki? Get it together, man!
-OK Miyuki, I won't be late...What's that? 2 box lunches? I see now...
But later at lunch...Ken's eating by himself? OK Ken, what's been going on since I've been away??? What do you mean, "You're not the man Kobayakawa loves"? Are you OK with that?
-Last season Aoi had certain times for changing clothes in the women's locker room but now he's changing clothes while the women are still there! And no one's bothered by it! Anyhow, Miyuki passes on going out with Aoi, Saori & Yoriko & so does Natsumi...Mainly to follow her & find out what's going on...
-Zapper? And Miyuki's talking to Honda & Megumi? So that's who the boxed lunches were for! Both Honda & Megumi enjoyed the lunches-Could you make them again sometime?
Miyuki-We need to talk...
-Since Ken won't ask this of you, then I will: Are you in love with Honda? What about Ken? Can't you tell me anything? I thought we were partners & I could trust you; in fact, I thought you were lonely while I was away at Assault Team training! Are you using Honda to fill that void?
You don't know anything, Natsumi!
-Next day at work...Not a word passes between them all day but Miyuki asks Saori to take her place on patrol while she works on the street simulations.
While on patrol...Saori, let's pay a visit to Oshou! Maybe he can help me with this problem...
-Chief, here's the simulation you asked for & I have a request...I want to end my partnership with Natsumi. Hmm...
...Tsujimoto, you will partner with Saga for a while to train her as your successor until you leave for the Assault Team. No discussion!
-A try to apologize to Miyuki..Maybe not. How about a call to Toukairin? You didn't have to say much, Natsumi-He could tell that something was bothering you. Cheer up, OK?
-Even at work Natsumi still has trouble deciding on what to do about all this with her, Miyuki & Ken. Hey, you in the truck-Stop! SAORI!!
