Clannad: After Story
Tomoya: You’re alright, Nagisa! Hang in there, okay! You’re gonna make it! [Nagisa is groaning in pain.] Nagisa…
Nagisa: Don’t worry about me. I’m fine. I have to look out for Shio…After this is over, the three of us are gonna live together…Right here in our home… [Sanae, Akio, and Yagi arrive.]
Sanae: Alright, we were able to get Yagi.
Akio: Damn it! All the cars are stuck on the road! What the hell! Why now?!
Yagi: [At Akio] Listen, I need you to boil some water for me. As much as you can.
Akio: Alright! [Runs into the kitchen.]
Yagi: Okazaki, you do whatever you can to encourage your wife.
Tomoya: Alright. It’s alright to hold her hand, isn’t it?
Yagi: Of course. Just hold on and don’t let go.
Tomoya: Nagisa, I’m right here with you, okay? Don’t give up, Nagisa! I know you can do it! It’s gonna be fine! You gonna have Ushio and we’re gonna start our new life together!
Yagi: [At Nagisa] Just calm down now. It’ll be alright. Okay, now [Exhales a breath] breathe out. That’s right, good. Now [Exhales again] just relax. Relax. You’re doing fine. Let’s have a look.
Tomoya: [Narrating] Nagisa lost consciousness over and over again; waking up and passing out because of the pain. It was cruel to watch. I wanted to cover my eyes and hide. It stretched on and on with no end in sight. I lost track of time. It felt like an eternity. I was so close to passing out myself. After a while, I felt like my heart couldn’t take it anymore. I felt like I had run out of hope. [Hours pass and Nagisa successfully gives birth to Ushio. Tomoya takes the baby while Sanae, Akio, and Yagi look at Nagisa in worry.] Nagisa? Nagisa? Nagisa? [Tomoya grabs her hand.] Nagisa! [Nagisa opens her eyes.]
Nagisa: [Weakly] Tomoya?
Tomoya: She’s here! Nagisa! She’s…She’s right here! [Nagisa looks at Ushio.] You can hear her, right? That’s our baby. That’s our baby crying. Here, look. [Tomoya shows Nagisa Ushio.] I got to hold her before anyone else. See?
Nagisa: Oh, yeah…She turned out so cute…
Tomoya: This is our little baby, Nagisa. It’s our little Ushio.
Nagisa: Hey there, Shio…
Tomoya: It’s a girl! She’s as healthy as can be!
Nagisa: Yeah…I’m so glad we could have her here at home with you Tomoya…I’m sorry I had to make Shio work so hard for it, but at least we’re all together…
Tomoya: You did a great job. I mean it.
Nagisa: Hey…I’m sorry, but I’m starting to feel a little tired…Could you let me rest…Just for a second…?
Akio: Damn it! The doctor still isn’t here?!
Sanae: We still can’t use the car?
Tomoya: Nagisa…Wait, Nagisa, not yet…Come on, let’s talk, just…just for a little bit, okay? You don’t have to say anything. Just listen. [Nagisa doesn’t respond.] Come on, you have to look at our baby…She looks like a cute little monkey, doesn’t she? See? She’s so tiny…Here, I’m gonna call her name, okay? Ushio. Hey, it’s Daddy. Ushio? This is Mommy, see? Look at her, see? [Ushio gestures negatively.] She’s ignoring me…Guess she doesn’t understand yet…[Nagisa slightly responds by looking at Tomoya.] I bet she’ll grow up before we know it. She’ll be starting school. We’ll have to go clothes shopping with her. We’ll have open house and school festivals to go to. We’ll do it all as a family. Even though…Even though I used to make fun of that stuff when I was growing up…[Nagisa doesn’t respond.] Nagisa? [Her hand loses its grip on Tomoya’s and drops on the futon. Tomoya gasps.] Nagisa! [He picks up her hand and places it on Ushio’s cheek.] Here, it’s Ushio’s cheek! Come on…Hey…[Her hand drops onto the futon again. Tomoya then narrates while having flashbacks of him and Nagisa.] Nagisa…You told me you’d always be by my side…You said we’d always be together…You promised me that, remember?…Over and over again…We both promised…That was my only dream…Nothing good ever happened to me until I met you…I thought I had a crappy life…But even someone useless like me finally found something to live for…Right, Nagisa? R-Right? Nagisa…[Aloud while embracing Nagisa.]
