第百十九季 葉月の四

Season 119, 4th of the Leaf Month (August)

竹林で怪火

Mysterious Fire in the Bamboo Forest

あわや山火事と言うところ、二人の少女により鎮火

Sudden bushfire put out by two girls.

0月0日19時頃、永遠亭付近の竹林から火の手が上がった。

At the X month, X day, around 19 hours, flames rose from the Bamboo Forest in the vicinities of Eientei.

幸いにも周囲10米程度まで広がったところ食い止められ鎮火した。

Fortunately, it only spread to a 10 meter circumference before being checked off and extinguished.

この火事による被害者は無い。

There were no victims from this fire.

消火活動はその場所に居り合わせた二人の少女と数匹の兎たちによって行われた。

The firefight was carried out by the joint efforts of two girls and several rabbits that were at the scene.

詳しい出火原因判っておらず、放火の可能性もあると調査している。

Without further knowledge about the fire's cause, and considering the possibility of arson, I'm conducting an investigation.

消火活動を行った藤原妹紅と蓬莱山輝夜(共に人間)は、出火の原因と消火活動するのに至った経緯をこう述べていた。

Fujiwara no Mokou and Kaguya Houraisan (both human), who carried out the extinguishing, spoke about the circumstances of the fire's cause and the firefight.

「出火の原因? そ、そうねぇそれは判らないけど、偶然居り合わせたから消火しただけよ。大惨事にならなくて良かった」(妹紅)

"The fire's cause? Well... yeah, well, I don't know about that, but I was there by coincidence so I helped to put it out. Thankfully, it didn't become a tragedy." (Mokou)

「この近くに私の家があるの。そこまで火が広まったら困るじゃないの。それに誰だって目の前で火が出ていたら消火するでしょう?」(輝夜)

"My house is nearby here. If the fire were to spread there, it would be a problem. In these circumstances, wouldn't anyone put out a fire that starts up in front of one's own eyes?" (Kaguya)

二人とも火災現場に偶然居り合わせただけで、出火原因に関しては判らないと言う。

Which is to say that they were together at the fire's scene by coincidence, and don't know about its cause.

付近には火が出そうな物も無く、原因は放火か自然発火現象の二通りが考えられている。

With nothing in the vicinity that would cause the fire naturally, I can only think of it being either arson or spontaneous combustion.

この辺には永遠亭の他には余り人が住んでなく滅多に人が通ることもない、発見遅れれば大惨事になっていた。

Almost nobody lives around here besides the Eientei residents, and people seldom pass through this place. Had the sighting been any later, it would have become a great tragedy.

「た、煙草のポイ捨てかしら? 最近の若いもんは非常識なもんでねぇ。平気で信じられないことをしたりするのよ」(妹紅)

"Co-could it have been some tobacco litterings? Youngsters these days ain't got no common sense. They recklessly do the most unbelievable things." (Mokou)

「焼き鳥のポイすてかもしれないわね。この辺は焼き鳥のメッカだからね」(輝夜)

"It could have been a discarded yakitori. Since this place is a Mecca for yakitori." (Kaguya)

焼き鳥のメッカと聞いて、鴉天狗である私はこの場を早く立ち去りたい気分だったので深く追求するのをやめた。

Being myself a crow tengu, at hearing the words "Mecca for yakitori", I found myself wanting to quickly take my leave from this place. Therefore, I refrained from a more detailed investigation.

後日冷静に考えてみると、焼き鳥で山火事になるとは考えられない上、火災現場付近で言う鳥と言うのは兎だと理解した。

Later, when thinking it over calmly, I realized that, besides the fact that a yakitori couldn't possibly have caused a bushfire, the birds that were said to be in the area of the fire scene were actually rabbits.

恐らく火の付いた兎の事を指していたのでは無いか。そういう事にしよう。

Perhaps this all points to the rabbits being the ones who started the fire? Let's consider it that way.

火災はいつ何処で発生するのか判らない。

I don't know when and where this fire started.

まず自分の身の回りで燃えそうな物がないか再度点検することをお勧めする。

More importantly, I recommend to always check twice for flammable objects around you.

Interview

Mokou

変な記事。焼き鳥って言われたあたりから新聞っぽくなくなってるじゃないんの。

What a weird article. From the point in which it starts about yakitori, it really doesn't look like something fit for a newspaper, right?

Aya

それは反省しています。

I'm doing a reflection on this.

Mokou

修行が足りないわね。それに今日は何?この事件はもう解決しているはずじゃないの?

Your discipline is lacking, isn't it? And what is it today? Wasn't this incident already settled?

Aya

ちょっと思うところがありまして... そういえばもう一人の方は?

I just had some thoughts about it... Speaking of which, the other person..?

Mokou

輝夜?うーん、ちょっと忙しいから行きたくない、って言うと思うから呼ばない。

Kaguya? Hmmm, I thought that she would say that she's too busy and doesn't want to come, so I didn't call her.

Aya

それはまた随分と自分の勝手です。

This is assuming too much on your own.

Mokou

でも私は暇よ。

But I'm free.

Aya

まあどちらでも良いです。それでは本題ですが、この火災って本当のところ何が原困だったんですか?

Well, either of you is fine. So, the main question is: Regarding this fire, what was its true cause?

Mokou

煙草のポイ捨て。

Tobacco litterings.

Aya

貴方達以外に人居なかったんですよね。それで火災すぐに鎮火した。

There weren't any other people besides you two, right? And yet the fire was quickly put out.

Mokou

何が言たいの?

What are you trying to say?

Aya

冷静に考えてみれば、誰がどう考えても貴方達が火災を起こした犯人です。状況からはそうとうしか考えられない。

If you think calmly about that, anyone would reach the conclusion that you were the ones who started the fire. Given the circumstances, it's the only thing one can conclude.

Mokou

火のついた煙草をポイっと捨てる。

What started the fire were some tobacco litterings.

Aya

あそこに何か隠さないといけない物でもあったのでしょうか?

Could have been something in there that you needed to hide?

Mokou

ふふ。余り詮索すると大変な目に遭うかもしれないわよ。何てったって、この辺は焼き鳥メッカだからね。

Hu hu. If you go around inquiring too much, something awful might just happen. Because this place is a... how was it, a Mecca for yakitori, right?

Aya

焼き鳥!そ、そうそれ思い出したんですが、この辺が焼き鳥のメッカだっていう理由は...

Yakitori! Th-that's it, I remembered. The reason that this place is called a Mecca for yakitori...

Mokou

今日のラッキーアイテム白レバーかぁ。

Is today's lucky food foie gras?

Aya

...この辺で良く火の鳥を見かけるからじゃ...

...it's because a bird of fire is often seen around here...

Mokou

肝の食べ過ぎには少し気を付けないいとけないか。

But don't you have to avoid eating too much liver?

Aya

そして火の鳥の事を、輝夜さんは焼き鳥と...

And about this bird of fire and yakitori, Miss Kaguya was...

Mokou

硬い肝はマズいんだよなぁ。

Hard liver tastes so bad...

Aya

...皆まで言いましょうか?

...should I spell it all out?

Mokou

おっと。今日はこの辺で急用が出来そうかな?。

Oops. Wonder if we'll have an emergency around here today?

Aya

急用って突然出来る物なんですか!

An emergency, like one happening all of a sudden!?

Mokou

突然出来る物でしょう?何がおかしいの。

Aren't they always something sudden? What's wrong with that?

Aya

むっ間違えた。ってそうじゃなくて、さっきからまともに人を聞いてくれないじゃないですか。

I messed up. I mean... that's not it! Could you listen seriously to what people are saying from the beginning?

Mokou

あの時火災はおきていなかった。竹林には一切の火の気はなく、貴方は何も見ていない。この日は平和での何も無かった。それで良いでしょう。

Back at that time, there wasn't any fire. There's not a single trace of fire in the bamboo forest, you haven't seen anything. That was a peaceful, uneventful day. And that's about it.

Aya

事実を歪めることは許しませんよ?第一、新聞はもう出ています。

I won't accept such distortion of the truth. And foremost, the news edition has already come out.

Mokou

新聞には誤報はつきもの。愛をこめて欠番にするなり、間違いを間違いと認めずにほっかむりしていれば事件は風化するのではなくて?

Wrong reports simply happen in newspapers. If you do your best to cancel that edition and keep the mistakes under wraps, this incident will simply wane away, right?

Aya

そんなこと絶対にやりません。

I will never do such a thing.

Mokou

本当に融通の利かない天狗ねぇ。頭が固すぎて少し火にくべてみた方が良いんじゃないか?それとも肝まで硬くなってるかね?

Truly such an inflexible tengu... Since your head is so hard, should we put it to roast a little? Or maybe you are hard all the way to the liver?

Aya

私を脅そうとするなんて、一体貴方はどういう人間ですか。

Just what kind of human are you, threatening me like that?

Mokou

最低でもお前よりは永く生きているよ。大先輩だ。どう、試してみる?

One that has at the least lived more than you. Your great senior. So, wanna try it? Making crow yakitori with the firebird's flame?
