伏查物語 | 穩定的愛你 Lasting Love
~~ = ~ = ~~
Bad has actually really liked Vol all along.
Once Bad said: I can love you more than Cha.
Bad: I mean it, I can make all your wishes come true. Do you want me to give you a purse, a watch, or any other thing you can think of?
Bad started making extravagant plans of all the wonderful things (they) could buy for Vol.
Vol thought for a while, then said: I want you to wish me good night every night before bed.
Upon hearing this response, Bad thought it was inconceivably simple and agreed immediately.
On the first evening, Bad wished Vol a good night for the first time.
The following days passed in the same manner.
One day, Bad was very busy and forgot (to say good night).
Even though Vol was disappointed, he still waited as usual.
First one time, then a second…. Bad gradually forgot their agreement.
This evening, Bad has already completely neglected the agreement.
Cha comes up to Vol, and caressing his head whispering: Good Night.
He has never forgotten, not even once.
~~ = ~ = ~~
Those who like you may make extravagant plans of the earth-bending things they can do for you,
And just to win your affections, they will really do all these things.
But those who love you will take note of even your smallest needs,
And every night when it comes to the agreed upon time,
will never forget to wish you a good night.

阿伏 Vol 常在他人面前是陽光的、溫暖的，但實際上是易受傷害的玻璃心患者，面對許多事情都有三分鐘熱度，樂觀看待卻也極易失望，時常需要仰賴Cha的陪伴，也相當依賴Cha。
小查 Cha 給人一種陰沉、冷靜甚至有些冷漠的形象，他最在乎的是Volts的情緒，雖然不善言辭，但總是會以行動讓Volts知道自己的關心，希望他能夠一直都很快樂，同時也相當依賴Volts。
阿壞 Bad 是世俗眼光與劣性的化身，他年輕、帥氣、開朗有趣，你所有能想到的俊男美女形象都會在他身上出現，但人總有一些小缺陷，而他好像總是難以理解別人在意的事物，很難同理到他人的狀況，就像世界上有許多人總在不經意時傷害他人一樣。
Introduction to characters
Vol sheds rays of sunshine and is very caring, but, on the other hand, vulnerable at times. He tends to be fickle when it comes to interest in things. He is generally optimistic but gets disappointed easily. He is highly emotionally dependent on his relationship with Cha.
Cha is gloomy, calm and rather indifferent. His main focus is Volts’ emotions. Cha is a man of remarkably few words, but a man of action and shows Volts great affection. He puts a lot of effort in making Volts happy and is also highly dependent on Volts.
Bad tends to judge things from a mundane point of view and is a man of mischief. He’s young, handsome, radiant and humorous. You can find every desirable, charismatic trait in him. But all human beings have flaws. He doesn’t seem to understand nor does he seem to relate to others. Just like many others that hurt other people’s feelings without even noticing it.
Brief dialogues from the three of them symbolize our daily lives. Cold words and harsh actions that are harmful to others can be seen every single day. By way of this short dialogue, we’re able to remind ourselves to be faced with these hurtful matters via a more optimistic point of view. In the meantime, we’re able to push ourselves to pay extra attention to people around us.
The characters Volts and Charles in The Tales of Vol, Cha and Bad are actually reflections of my personal image. The two of them symbolize the inner side and the outer appearances of me. We disguise ourselves with an image to put ourselves in a comfort zone. But, in the meantime, we’re also seeking a corner to rest and to get along with our inner self. That’s the image embedded in this tale.
