Lain

It’s because I’m weird…

Touko

Wait a second Lain. You’re not a weird kid at all. Everyone thinks they’re weird when they’re kids...

Lain

But you’re wrong.

Touko

Do you dislike being different from others?

Lain

I’m not sure.

Touko

Okay? Lain is Lain because she is different. You have a very strong imagination, and that’s a good thing. So don’t say that you're weird. I don’t think that at all.

Lain

But… the test…

Touko

I’m sorry… but you’re troubled, right? I want you to not to be troubled. In order to help you, I have to know more about you. I don’t want to make you uncomfortable.

Lain

What should I do?

Touko

Right now you don't need to do anything. Since you and I are friends, if we keep talking, I’ll slowly start to understand more and more about you. So, if I say, “I think you should come over,” it would be good for you to think, “That sounds nice, okay.”... So right now, it’d be best if you tell me all about yourself.

Lain

You won’t tell anyone?

Touko

Nope, it’ll be our secret.

Lain

Not even your friends, or your mother?

Touko

I promise. If I lie, one thousand needles!

Lain

One thousand needles?

Touko

Don’t kids your age know that? When I was a kid, whenever we made a promise, we said, “If I break the promise, I will drink 1000 needles.”

Lain

Wouldn’t that hurt?

Touko

A lot!!... Right! How many needles are in my stomach right now? Miss Iwakura?...

Lain

… five thousand?

Touko

Wrong! Yesterday, since I went to the bathroom and flushed everything out, there’s zero!

Lain

Sensei, that's gross!...
