"The door was locked? I don't know how that could have happened," Seems she takes a moment to think about that herself. "...Oh, I think I forgot the key in there last night. You see I never returned to my room and went to sleep in the guesthouse last night."

"Yeah that is the case," Battler responds to your question. George also gives a nod. "She came by later in the night and asked to sleep there. We played cards for a bit before doing that."

Jessica confirms what you say, "Yes, I had forgotten it. After everything that happened I didn't really pay attention to what I was doing."

"...So, we can take this to mean that anyone could have gotten into Jessica's room that night and murdered Krauss. Reinon, how late were you awake last night? Did you see anyone pass by the servant's room door, leaving the guesthouse?"

After getting her attention she promptly responds, "I was up until around midnight. I couldn't sleep right away so I think I actually fell asleep... around half past. After you returned I didn't see anyone leave or enter the guesthouse. I did see Jessica enter before you however, I believe that was around 10:30."

Natsuhi: "I was in bed at that time. I couldn't sleep very well, so I ordered a drink from Sanon, who I heard in the hallway at that time. After that I went to sleep.

Eva and Hideyoshi: "I had already went to my room at that time. I fell asleep shortly after." Hideyoshi tells you he did the same as Eva.

Rudolf and Kyrie: "I had also already headed off for some rest. My wife was with me." Kyrie confirms this.

Rosa: I went to sleep around the same time as the rest. Around 11pm I called the servant room for some medicine but they didn't pick up. No response from the guesthouse servant room either, so I went to the mansion's servant room to find some myself. I returned with some and went to sleep shortly after.

Gohda: "Oh yes, I believe I was in the servant room at the time. I saw you shortly after actually. I was heading off to bed then."

Genji: "I was cleaning on the second floor at that time. I went to sleep before midnight."

Sanon: "I stayed in the servant room the majority of the night. Krauss ordered a drink around 11pm, when I went to deliver it Natsuhi ordered as well. After delivering her drink, I noticed Krauss had finished and left his cup out in the hall to be picked up. On the way back I dropped it and didn't return to the servant room until I had cleaned it up, around 11:30 "

Asune: "I think... I was in the servant room then. I never really checked the time. Either way I went to sleep soon after that."

Reinon: "Besides what I already mentioned, it was not an eventful night. Battler came down a bit later and got some milk for Ange. He took a look at the phone and found that one of the wires was cut! In fact... it was right after you left we noticed it..."

Battler: "I was in the guesthouse the whole night... You saw me there after all. You know, when we bumped into each other on the staircase."

George, Ange, and Jessica: George informs you that the three of them never really left the guestroom after Jessica returned.

"...Genji. You were cleaning the second floor? I checked my watch when I ran into you on the staircase. It was 10:47. And at that time you told me that Krauss had already gone to sleep. Precisely when did he go to sleep, and how did you know?"

"I dropped on my way downstairs, in front of the closet. It was a rather ornate cup, so it took longer to clean up than expected. I know it was 11:30 because I checked the time upon returning to the servant room. Genji can confirm this as he was in the room when I returned." Genji does so.

"So you would have known if anyone had tried to go between Krauss's Room and Jessica's room. I'm assuming you didn't see anyone, so this means that either Krauss left between the time Sanon went to get Natsuhi a drink, or he left at some point after 11:30. Everyone claims they went to sleep, so could you all please tell me which rooms you were staying in?"

"Got it. Krauss had a stab wound in his back, so I don't think the missing gun was used to commit the crime. I believe we should be okay as long as we don't wander off too far from each other. It seems he was probably attacked later that night after midnight, when everyone else was asleep. Does anyone else have anything they would like to add?"

“Ah I remember something,” Asune squeaks out. Naturally everyone’s attention is drawn to this. Without having to be prompt she continues, “Around 11:25 I clearly saw the light in Jessica’s room flash!”

Kyrie responds first, “Are you sure of that?”

“Yes, I remember because I thought Jessica was going to sleep, because after flashing a few times it went out. I checked my watch thinking that it was rather late, so I’m sure it was at 11:25!” she concludes.

Eva slowly slinks her way into the conversation, “In other words… you had left your post around the time of the murder, not to mention lied about your alibi.” Nobody had picked up on that, but once it is mentioned murmur fills the room.

“What? No, I didn’t mean-“Asune tries to say before Rosa interrupts.

“Now that that I think about it… I saw Asune leaving the mansion around 11pm,” Rosa states.

“Well? If that isn’t suspicious then I don’t know what is!” Eva jeers to the room. Nobody wants to confirm it out loud, but you can tell they don’t exactly deny it.

“B-but wait… I didn’t,” Asune uttered quietly, clearly getting flustered.

“Cut it out,” suddenly breaks from the back of the room. You see Battler come forwards, “She was going to see me, and I can vouch for her alibi.”

“To see you? That late at night?” Kyrie asks with a perked eyebrow.

Battler scratches the back of his head as he responds with a grin, “Yeah, I had lent her a book you see. I had told her I really wanted to back before the end of the night. So there is nothing wrong, she was just following my request. Besides, Krauss was found in Jessica’s room, if anything that would strengthen her alibi.”

“Battler…” Asune sighs out as she calms down from being suspected. It appears that the tension has been resolved for now.

Following this Jessica decides to talk to everyone, “It’s rather uncomfortable here, shall we move to the parlor?” Everyone agrees and carefully moves to the parlor, guns raised.

Without any issue the group gathers into the parlor and fixes up the room just as you remember last time. As for everyone, well it seems that the change of scenery is the only thing different.

"Hmm... Jessica's light also flashed and went out when we discovered the body. There's probably something important about that. Perhaps it was a signal for someone. And it must be remotely activated, because no one else was in the room when it happened for us. Is there anything particularly wrong with your lamp, Jessica? Could we go take a closer look at it?"

Nobody seems too keen on leaving the parlor.

Anyway, Asune... From where did you see the light flash? Where were you at 11:25 PM last night? Please mark it on this map."

"Well you know, um," Look like Asune continues to get flustered. Eventually someone else speaks up taking your inquires into consideration.

“Hmm, I can’t get it out of my head,” Rosa adds. She turns in the direction of Asune, “I don't want to suspect you, but I clearly remember you running with your hands to your side… without a book.”

“Oi,” Battler jumps up getting ready to guard against this yet again, “I said I can vouch for her, remember? Besides it was, ugh… just a pocket book. Yeah! You can fit that in your clothing easily.”

“…I think the fact you two left at all is suspicious on its own, “Kyrie explains, “In fact is both you and Asune lied about your alibis. You are still hiding something, aren’t you?”

Battler looks shocked that everyone is turning on him, he begins to sweat, “Not you too Kyrie… come on why would I murder Krauss it makes no sense, why would either of us?”

Despite Battler’s attempts at drawing suspicion away from this it seems everyone can’t beat it out of their heads. Even if they don’t believe it, it can’t exactly be denied… can it?

“I… uhh… well,” Battler crunches up his face in frustration. Suddenly…

Battler reaches out and grabs Asune by the waist and pulls her in close. He grabs her hand and yells out, “WHAT IS SO WRONG WITH TWO LOVERS MEETING EACH OTHER AT NIGHT, HUH? WELL?” The room becomes silent. Either the family members shut their mouths or drop them open.

“With a servant?” Eva eventually exclaims and in turn breaking the silence.

“…Unbelievable, “Natsuhi mutters as she holds her forehead.

After the initial aftermath Rudolf steps out of the group and walks over to Battler. The two of them wordlessly exchange a series of glares at each other. Eventually Rudolf slowly raises his hand… and places it on Battler’s shoulder.

“That is right… as a man you must protect the ones you love,” Rudolf quietly whispers. Battler looks up at him surprised, as if something more than that has passed between them.
“…Dad,” he manages to say.

Immediately following this, laugher bursts into the room. Jessica is sitting down holding her stomach rolling over herself.

“H-hey what-,” Battler begins to say, quite agitated that she would laugh at something like this. However it quickly becomes apparent that she is not laughing. While it may have started out like that, it grew into a gut wrenching sob. Tears flow from her face. It’s understandable, her father was killed, and the night before all this responsible was pushed onto her. You suppose this happy moment of youth, so drastically different finally broke the dam.

Those innocent cries quickly change however. Slowly but surely Jessica beings to cough; so much in fact you can tell it surely isn’t healthy. “What’s wrong Jessica?” George says as he quickly rushes over to her. She continues to make gestures to her throat, and it seems the family members get the idea.

“She is having an asthma attack, where is her inhaler?” Reinon bursts out, quickly realizing that Jessica doesn’t have it on her. Jessica shakes her head and tries to communicate and a soft whisper managers to escape through the coughing.
George seems to have gotten the idea of the message, “She said it’s in her room, hurry!” George and Battler quickly lift her up and put her arms around both of their shoulders. They make it to the door, with Asune following Battler, before noticing that nobody else has moved.

“What are you all doing? We need to get her help, now!” exclaims Battler.

“Think about it,” Eva states, “If the culprit has a gun moving together just makes us a larger target. It only takes one bullet to kill someone you know.”

While Battler yells about this being about Jessica’s life, you take the time to realize she makes a point. In these types of situations sticking together in one large group seems like the preferable idea, however even if you walk around together it’s no guaranty for safety. Like she says, it only takes one shot...

With Eva and a few of the other adults opposed to leaving the room, it is quickly decided that, after a quick jab to the side Rudolf will go with them; taking one of the rifles for protection. Asune refuses to leave Battler’s side and decides to come as well. As Jessica coughs her lungs out Battler, Rudolf, George, Jessica, and Asune are about to step out of the parlor.

“Last chance, I’d feel safer with one other man, any volunteers?” Rudolf asks with a half look back into the room.

Everyone agrees to stay put and after getting the key for Jessica's room you leave the parlor with the others. You hear the sound of the door locking behind you.

The six of you quickly head up to the second floor of the mansion and enter Jessica's room with ease. Inside Krauss's corpse is as dead as ever.

Asune lets out a scream and closes her eyes. In the meantime the others look for Jessica's inhaler while jessica sits on one of the chairs surrounding the table.

The room looks just as you left it.

You remember that you don't actually know.

Battler eventually finds the inhaler while you were distracted and gives it to Jessica. After a few moments she seems to calm down, she has as cold sweat though and looks pretty weak from the ordeal.

"How are you feeling," asks George.

"...I'll live," Jessica manages to say, "Just give me a moment."

"No problem, don't push yourself," Battler says with a sigh of relief.

George, Battler, and Asune are around Jessica at the moment. Rudolf is looking out of the window.

You take a closer look at the lamp. It seems fairly normal, the bulb has been broken as you remember. You find flipping the switch on and off doesn't produce any light. It is plugged into the wall, additionally you find no evidence of tampering, hidden switches, or anything of the sort.

The group gets ready to leave the room, making sure Jessica is fine. Seems like she can walk at this point without help so everyone heads out.

BGM: Satsui

Halfway down the staircase you can hear loud arguing, however it is cut short when a gunshot rings out. Then another. Screams and yelling piece the halls. The sounds of glass shattering.

"What is going on!?" Asune screams. Suddenly the door to the parlor slams open. Gohda falls back into the hall, blood pouring from his face. He doesn't move. You cannot see inside the parlor from here, nor can you hear anything anymore.

The sudden extreme turn of events appears to be too much for anyone. Rudolf however gains enough reason to raise his gun and point in the direction of the parlor.

"Who is there?" Rudolf yells in the direction of the parlor.

Suddenly, from a direction you least expected, the glass beside the main doors shattered and you hear something fly by your head. Rudolf turns his gun prepared to shoot as well.

You quickly duck and cover. Slowly crawling down the steps.

Battler covers Asune with his body as protection and Rudolf lets out a powerful scream as he unleashes his own hell upon the unknown assailant.

You mind clouds, you continue to crawl but something doesn't seem right. You turn around, Rudolf has been hit and is on one knee continuing to return fire.

Battler and Asune haven't moved, yet both remained undamaged. From where you are you can't see George, however you can see Jessica as she coughs up blood and slumps down to the ground.

You continue to crawl trying to get around to the back of the stairs, however you quickly realize that this is a fruitless attempt as you cough up blood as well. Looking at your chest you can tell its already too late for you. You know this feeling, this terrible feeling. Looks like this round has come to an end...

You slowly slip away into the darkness.

BGM: SCHIZOPHRENIA
Little droplets of fluid. Splashes, inconsistent. It played without remorse.

The man came out of his trance. Thinking, not on the present matter. No, this problem would work itself out without issue. The creature was being studied yes, but more importantly, it was being tested.

A crunch, and then a snap. Dancing in the rain...

This process was long, he knew that. He was good at being patient, how long had it been now? ...About 56 days. Shorter this time, much shorter. It was to be expected, he knew what he had been thinking at the time.

Halting of movement, playing stopped.

The man looked up, the small doll he had tossed to its doom had been played with. He let out a small grim smile. The same as last time eh? No, not the result... but the time intrigued him. Repeating... some how it knew exactly how to recreate it.

It threw down its now determined trash and it sunk into the ground. Only the ting strand of blue hair left from the doll.

The man opened his bag once more, perhaps for the last time.

~~~~~

You return to that void of a place, the sinking sensation engulfing your whole body. This time it is quick and clean, a snap on your other arm. It is gone.

In the distance the creature smiles in its own way.

"...try...secret...rule..." it spurts out.

That's right, the secret rules to this gameboard. Before you pass on you can make a single blue trying to guess one of them. Who knows, maybe you'll hit the nail on the head...

"Each mystery can be solved with clues that can be found within the iteration in which the mystery takes place. That is, while it may be helpful for later players to look for answers to mysteries from the previous round, it is not necessary.

The culprit is the same person across all games.

The creature sways back and forth and its mouth unhinges to regurgitate the truth.

The culprit is the same person for each iteration.

You are once again engulfed and quickly loose sense of yourself.

The sound of the stormy breeze once again brushes against your cheek. You are back on the boat, its almost a sight for sore eyes at this point.

You muscular structure and outward appearance quickly goes about another change. Your hair tinges blue and you shrink in stature. You might have lost something down below as well...

Quickly you take another appearance and begin your third attempt.
