Suna no onna

Sorry? What do you mean?
I asked your meaning.
I'm sorry.
That's not enough!
I've got a job!
Time's important to me!

But you do understand,
don't you?

Understand? How could I?
This life's really too hard
for a woman alone.

What's it got to do with me?
The winds will blow soon -
danger of sandstorms, too.

I'm your prisoner?
I'm sorry.
Don't joke! I'm not a tramp!
I have my job!
I'm a registered citizen!

What if someone starts a search?
Illegal confinement's a crime!
If I'm too slow,
my house will be buried in the sand.

Let it!
Why involve me?
The house behind would be
in trouble.

So let it get buried!
How can you?
Why must you stay in this place?
