What's going on, Kumiko?

I ran away from home.

I quarelled with my brother.

I can manage on my own.

You shouldn't have done that.

I stole some money at home.

I'd like to stay here.

It troubles me.

What will I say to your family?


I'll find another way.

Where are you going, Kumiko?

Leave me alone!

A hostel?

I know a very good hostel.

I'm from Osaka.

I didn't know that.

You're leaving?

I have tickets.

I still don't know where to go.

Are you a real student?


I must earn money to

pay for my studies.

It must be hard.

You're from Osaka...

You don't know where to go...

Did you run away from home?

More or less.

It's not good.

Tell me everything.

I'm worried.

Forget my job.

Let's have a drink.

I know this place.

Ask anything you want.

All right.

But I don't have money.

I'll pay.

You're inviting me?

Two meals of the day!

Good booty?

- Promising?

- Not much.

She ran away. She has some cash.

I'll test her later.

It's not quiet here.

Come over here.

Just a slut to him.

That's all she is.

Sit down.

It's quiet here.

Something to drink...

I'll taste it.

Do you want some?

The meals are ready.

How much?

- We took a beer too.

- Thank you.

I'll keep that for you.

A young stranger and

a lady on the run...

meet near the station.

That's romantic.

It's true.


Drink. I'll help you.

Don't worry.

One more.

I can't.

I feel dizzy.



It's over. Get lost!

Wait! Kiyoshi!

He won't come back.

It's our turn.

Take everything off.

Who are you?

Robbers, isn't it obvious?

Hurry up or we'll hurt you.

Take everything off.

Give her the clogs.

Take that.

Remind yourself that

it's an accident.

I can't go back like that.

Give me my clothes back!

Don't be too demanding.

Stay with us if you want.
