I work for your friend, Selinuntius.
What is it?
You must stop running.
It is impossible to save him now.
No. the sun is still in the sky.
But you must think of your own life.
My life is not important. I made a promise that I would come back.
Selinuntius said the same thing. After they took him to the killing ground, the king made fun of my Master.

But he said, Melos will come.
That is why I have to run.
He believes in me.
I may be too late, but that is not important anymore.
I am running to protect something much bigger.
Mr. Melos, I don’t understand what you are talking about.
But if you have to run, run.
Just as the sun was about to sink,

Hit me, Selinuntius. Just once, I had a bad dream.
If you don’t hit me, I won’t have the right to be your friend.

Selinuntius understood everything. He hit Melos so hard that the sound echoed everywhere.
Then, he smiled and said.
Now, it is your turn to hit me.
I too had a time I could not believe in you.
It was only once, but it was the first time in my life not to believe in you. you have to hit me, too.
believe in you あなたを信じる
Melos hit his friend’s cheek, and then they hugged each other.
Thank you, my friend.
The king was watching from behind the crowd. He came up and spoke to them.
You have taught me a lesson.
Both of you have shown me people can trust each other.
Could you be my friends?
The crowd cheered noisily. Then, a girl came up to Melos with a red cape.
with 〜を持って、 cape ケープ円形の袖なし外衣
Melos didn’t understand, so Selinuntius said.
Melos, you are not wearing any clothes.
This lovely girl doesn’t want other people to see your body.
The strong Melos’s face became red.
