Chapter 273 - Why are you apologizing?

「Hey, Nancy .
What kind of person is Nancy’s mama?」

To Nancy, who has finished a call with her mama, Aya asked a question .

「Oh, well,
she always wore jingling accessories . 」

「Anything else?」
「Hmm, it’s hard to describe my mom . . . . . .
ah, that’s right .
Because I'll be holding a party, please attend . Then, I’ll introduce you . 」

Nancy’s mom, I mean the『Nancy・Jewelry』’s president . . . . . .
that party is going to be luxurious .

「I’d like to attend, too!!」
「Of course! Come, come . 」

Ringo bit on the unexpected thing .

Since Ringo is aspiring to be a designer,
she’ll be interested in Nancy’s mom, who is successful as a designer .

「By the way, Nancy . When is your mom coming to Japan . 」
「Tomorrow morning . 」
「That's quite sudden, huh . 」
「It seems she was quite surprised when she heard about the incident .
She cancelled all her other work and came flying over . 」

I see, although she hasn’t been kidnapped, she would’ve been depending on the situation, it’s only naturally for her to worry as her mother .

「So, Seiji, I’d like to go to the airport to meet mama tomorrow, can you come with me?」
「Ah, it’s fine . 」

I actually wanted to clear the『Tower of Sunrise』, but it can’t be helped, huh .
Since Nancy was about to be involved in the incident, I also don't want to leave her alone .

Thus, the karaoke tournament ended .

***

The next day, Saturday,
with us two, Nancy and I went to Haneda Airport .
The three people--Aya, Elena, and Hilda--are staying at home .
「Seiji, thank you for coming with me even though it’s Saturday . 」
「Don’t worry about it . 」

When we were having such a talk, a woman wearing last-boss-style jinggling accessories was approaching us from the opposite side .
That woman’s walking speed grew faster and faster with every step, finally at the speed that she was almost sprinting, she crashed against Nancy with a tackle .

「Nancy! Oh, my Nancy, it’s good that you were safe!」
「Wait, Mama! Ouch, ouch!」

Somehow or other, this person seems to be Nancy’s mom .
She’s probably so worried .

「Nancy, you aren’t injured anywhere?」
「I’m fine other than the place where mama tackled me just now . 」
「That’s good~ . 」

Nancy’s mom kept kissing Nancy on the cheeks while saying so .

「Mama, stop it! Because I’m not a child . 」

As one would expect, even Nancy is『spoiled』by her mom .

「By the way, who is that man?」
「Ah, it’s Seiji of ○○ company . 」
「Ah, that Seiji, huh . Thank you . 」

What do you mean by『that Seiji』?

Oh, well .

「First, I’ll guide you to the hotel since standing here around talking is hard . 」

I said so and was about to guide mama-san―

「No, there’s no need for that . 」
「Eh? What does that mean?」

「I’ll take Nancy right now and return to California . 」
「Eeh!!?」

I was extremely surprised at the words of Nancy’s mom,
Nancy was also surprised in the same way as me .

「Wai-, mama, why are we going home?
What about the business?」

Somehow or other, it seemed to have been a bolt from the blue even for Nancy .

「That’s probably right,
but I sent you here because I heard that Japan was a safe country .
Also, I heard that you went to an around-the-world trip behind my back some time ago!
I’ve already had enough of you going through dangers . 」

I understand the feeling, but . . . . . .

「Wait a minute!
It’s us, who brought that『kind of danger』into Japan, right!?
This time, I must explain to the director-san of ○○ company and the grandchild of the president, who suffered a terrible thing from the mafia . 」

Ooh, Nancy said something an adult would say .

「Understood .
Let’s talk about the matter of returning home afterwards . 」

Nancy’s mom understood, too . After that, we left the airport .

***

I, together with Nancy and Nancy’s mom, paid a visit to the president’s grandchild and the director .
There wasn’t any serious injury, but both of them has been hospitalized for inspection .

First, we went to the director’s sickroom .

「Director, Nancy and the president-san of the Nancy・Jewelry came to visit you . 」
「Ooh, did they especially come for me?」

Nancy’s mama said such a thing while shaking hands with the director .

『This time’s incident is a disaster, let’s overcome the difficulty together from now on . 』

When I interpreted what Nancy’s mom said to the director――

「Hm?
Maruyama-kun, didn’t they come here to apologize?」
「Probably, I think that’s the intention . 」

「It’s a strange expression for an apology . 」
「That’s, because they are Americans . 」
「Is it such a thing?」

The director doesn’t seem to understand it that much and looks strange .

『Seiji, is something wrong?』

They are anxious about the director and I talking in Japanese .

『It seems the director wants to hear the words of apology . 』
『Apology!! What do you mean!?』

Nancy’s mom is surprised this time .

『It’s a difference between Japanese and American culture .
There’s a custom in Japan that you have to apologize first in this kind of situation . 』
『Oh! It’s unbelievable . 』

Seeing that Nancy’s mom making an exaggerated surprised gesture, the director is surprised this time .

「Wait, Maruyama-kun . Did you interpret the conversation awhile ago?」
「Yes, I interpreted it .
President-san said『it’s unbelievable . 』」

「Hey! Why did you interpret it!?
Please tell the other party that I apologize for saying such a strange thing . 」

Eh?
Well, I will interpret it, but . . . . . .

『The director said he apologizes for saying such a strange thing . 』

『Eeeh!?
Why are you apologizing?!!?』

Nancy’s mom’s eyes turned round at the excessive cultural shock .
