Japanese Short Stories

はしれメロス / Run, Melos!

Japanese Script


English Translation

Before the sun disappeared, Melos arrived at the castle. Melos was in time. “Wait. You must not kill him. I’m back. I’m back now,” Melos tried to say, but he was very tired and couldn’t speak. Melos said once again, “Wait. I am the one who will be killed. It’s Melos.” Melos ran toward Selinuntius. Melos could finally save Selinuntius. Melos said while crying, “Slap me. I had a bad dream on the way. I gave up saving you for a while.”
