No. The less time I spend with women, the better. You understand, surely, that a person is constantly being affected by his surroundings. Everything makes an impact: whether the sun is shining, whether the train is late, et cetera. If I were to visit with a woman every single day, her weaknesses would fault me. Instead of dealing justice with a traitor, I’d start to wonder how things look from his point of view.

That’s not how this business works. That’s why there are no women in this business. See? 

When the time comes, I’ll acquire a woman and child in the traditional way. But I haven’t come to that time yet. Not quite yet… 

I didn’t imagine you were someone so weak and susceptible that the very presence of another could change how you think and act. It isn’t as if when you stop to look at a beautiful painting you’ll become a piece of art Aozaki. If you couldn’t stay strong, what does that say about you?

Or do you not enjoy women? Is that why you don’t want to be around them? I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful time trying to produce a child without being around the woman…

But… someone of proper material feels a little difficult to come by.

What you have is an addiction. A bad one. Yes, Shiki, congratulations, you’ve discovered that food is made of ingredients. But the human body is better at ingesting some ingredients than it is with others. Coffee beans are one of those. In the long run, you’ll be drained and malnourished, and then you’ll come crying to me to finish your workload. 

Or die. 

They will not do any of those things. Where did you read any of that? and I’d die before asking for your help with work. I’m not going to be malnourished from drinking coffee, it isn’t as if coffee stops me from eating or drinking anything else.

Your tea isn’t special.

How well can you possibly function when the only thing keeping you standing is a little drink? You’d rather drink something that dries out your intestines and actually leaves you thirsty than something proven to increase your health? 

it doesn’t leave me thirsty, and if I need to I just drink more coffee. It’s water, tea is water too. One is leaves and one is beans, but if I have coffee I can almost stand people in the morning.

Not necessarily, but as you pointed out, you are young. If you arranged a marriage now, the odds are that your wife would grow to love you. Your children would have a much more loyal connection to you. Your strength as a family would be more durable if you married now.

Or you could continue to climb through the ranks of the Awakusu-kai, as I have. However, I’m not as young as I once was. When I choose to start a family, my wife may resent me. But my family will be well cared-for and secure, which is more than I can say for the average Japanese family. 

I think at this point I’m fairly secure, secure enough to start a family and have them well cared for… Do you wish that you had started a family sooner? The longer you wait the more likely it is that you’re going to be leaving your children without a father earlier than necessary…

I’m not sure how happy I’d be having a woman living in my house who didn’t at least like me either, but that doesn’t mean I want to quickly marry. Don’t you want to court a woman?

I wouldn’t worry about it yet, Shiki. You’ve got a full career to look after first, and it’s easy to arrange something here and there in our line of work. If you’re interested, though, I know a reliable matchmaker. 

Worry about what? matchmaking? I…. aozaki I’m not having any problems in that area… ah… why do you think I’m concerned about that? Do you think I should be?…

I’m glad you finally realized that. Maybe now you can come and enjoy tea with me, as nature intended. 

As nature intended? They’re both equally natural, Aozaki. Coffee however keeps me standing some days.
