|Sakuya||Thanks for the meal.|
|Manager||Wait, you're both done already? You've barely touched your food!|
|Citron||I too am good.|
|Itaru||Thank you for the meal.|
|Masumi||I'm going to my room.|
|Manager||Wait, really? This is the director's golden curry!
I'm gonna finish it if none of you are!
|Manager||What's gotten into them?|
|Izumi||I think they're still reeling from everything Yuzo said.
I don't blame them. It was a lot to take in.
|Manager||Oh, Yuzo came by! That's good to hear.|
|Izumi||Thanks for reaching out to hi for me.|
|Manager||Don't mention it. I'm worried, though. What if he burned them
so bad they end up quitting?
|Izumi||They won't! Have some faith in them, will you?|
|Manager||Uh, yeah, you're right.|
|Izumi||(Yuzo's criticisms were harsh, but fair. I don't think
the boys will let this bring them down.)
|Izumi||(They might be in a nut right now, but I'm sure they'll pull
themselves out of it. And even if they can't, it's my job to help them through this.)

|Sakuya||Oh, hey, Tsuzuru|
|Tsuzuru||Why are you outside with your pillow and comforter? You going somewhere?|
|Sakuya||I can't sleep. I just can't get what Yuzo said out of my head.|
|Tsuzuru||You too, huh.|
|Sakuya||I was so happy just being up on stage, I didn't put any though at all
into what that actually meant. I can't go on like this.
|Tsuzuru||You're not gonna leave, are you?|
|Sakuya||I just want to sleep on the stage, to see if I can get a better feel for it.|
|Sakuya||My thoughts are a blur. I don't know what I should do.
But I can't just sleep quietly in my room.
|Tsuzuru||Yeah, I don't think that means you have to sleep on the stage!|
|Citron||I will join you!|
|Tsuzuru||You too, Citron?!|
|Citron||I too am all set.|
|Tsuzuru||You're just gonna drag your comforters from the dorm
to the theater in the middle of the night?!
|Sakuya||I know it sounds dumb, but I thought it might give me some perspective...|
|Tsuzuru||You guys are just, really...|
|Tsuzuru||Fine, I'll join you. Give me one of those comforters.|
|Tsuzuru||Hell, I'm dragging Masumi and Itaru into this, too.|
|Sakuya||Are they even up at this point?|
|Tsuzuru||Masumi was. And I'll bet you money Itaru's up and gaming.|
|- - -|
|Tsuzuru||We've come this far. Don't start whining now.|
|Sakuya||Sorry for making you do this, Itaru.|
|Itaru||I can sleep anywhere as long as I've got a game to play.|
|Citron||It is like a camping excursion! How delightful!|
|Sakuya||Did you do those back home, Citron?|
|Citron||Oh, absolutely. We would set up camp and set a watch
to ensure that the enemy would not spot us.
|Citron||Oh yes, we would sleep to the background percussion of gunfire.|
|Tsuzuru||I'm not sure that's even remotely comparable to this!|
|Citron||Ah, a thousand pardons. Good nght.|
|- - -|
|Sakuya||...You guys still up?|
|Sakuya||How did it feel for you when Yuzo said what he did?|
|Tsuzuru||It pissed me off. I was like, where does he get off?|
|Itaru||I found it pretty harsh, not gonna lie.|
|Citron||It was quite the rough love.|
|Tsuzuru||That sounds so wrong!|
|Sakuya||Yeah, it seemed mean at first, but now I think he was
right. It was tough love and a reality check.
|Sakuya||Izumi has't seemed too happy watching us rehearse lately.
She's been frowning.
|Masumi||She's been like that since the performance rehearsals started.|
|Sakuya||You noticed it too, Masumi?|
|Masumi||I know her better than anyone.|
|Sakuya||You pay the most attention to her, that's for sure!|
|Tsuzuru||So Izumi hasn't been satisfied with our acting either?|
|Sakuya||Probably not. I think this was meant to be a wake-up call for us.|
|Citron||Nothing feels better than the whipcrack of rough loving!
|Tsuzuru||Seriously, stop making it sound so dirty!|
|Tsuzuru||It's true, though. Our job isn't to argue with audience feedback. It's to learn from it.|
|Sakuya||Exactly! I want to learn more about the stage. I want to be a better actor|
|Tsuzuru||Same. I wanna prove that Yuzo guy wrong.|
|Citron||That is the spirit! I too am in.|
|Sakuya||We're in this together!|
|Sakuya||Itaru? Something wrong?|
|Itaru||Nah. I just think we should get to sleep if we don't want to be late tomorrow.|
|Sakuya||Good call. Sorry, guys. Have a good night!|
|- - -|
|Izumi||(Huh, Sakuya and Citron's door is open.)|
|Izumi||Boys? Are you asleep? I'm closing the door now.|
|Izumi||Wait, where are their pillows? Their comforters?!|
|Izumi||(Don't tell me they took Yuzo's feedback so hard that they really left?!)|
|Izumi||(I'd better check around.)|
|- - -|
|Izumi||Sakuya? Citron? Where are you?|
|Izumi||Everybody's sleeping. But why here of all places...?|
|Sakuya||Nnn...'ma do my best...|
|Izumi||I was scared they'd run away, but they came right back
to the one place I need them the most.
No clue what's going on, but this is an encouraging sight.
|Izumi||Good night, boys. We'll be back at it tomorrow,okay?|
