"Maybe they're really good at it?

...Let me propose another theory: It looks like the person who left these tracks had a bad limp, as though they were badly hurt and couldn't walk any further. It may not be unreasonable to suggest they used a rope to swing themselves across the power lines, which ultimately damaged the poles, blew up the transformer, and cut power to the houses here."

BGM: Kako

Off in the forest directly across from where the footprints end you can see some snow from the road has fallen into the shade and in a straight line as if making a trail. Stepping between the trees you can see some of the branches have snapped and lay along the ground. Finally reaching the end of the steep trail you are right at the edge of the cliff face, directly in front and slightly below being the Yamada's house.

To the side is the pile of wood and below your feet is a small gap between the house and ledge. On top of the roof is much more interest however, as there is very clearly a patch of flattened snow as if someone had laid there. From that spot the patch continues on the roof to the front of the house, where you can no longer see it.

In the start of the snow trail are a few leafs and branches, as well as one large sharp branch that has broken in a way to reveal the soft white innards of the tree. That being said, those innards are resembling something much more human, as the tip of said branch is very clearly stained in dried blood, or so you assume with your experience.

"Of course not," he says while shrugging.

You jump onto the roof with ease and investigate closer. The trail shows someone must have crawled on the roof after landing in the spot with leaves. It goes to the front of the house directly in line with where the body was found.

The red on the stick does prove to be blood after all, albeit mostly dry.

Lee calls out, "Well I think this makes a bit more sense, since it does look like he fell down here at least. I'm going to head back to the inn now, if you need me I'll be in my room."

The two of you make it to the inn and as you approach you hear a conversation inside the lobby.

"-it was down outside of the village so I'm bringing some of my tools," Ichiro says and exits the building not noticing you as they hurry off. Entering the building, Masato is there to greet you like usual.

"What was that about?" Lee asks.

"Last night a tree blew into the power lines heading outside of the village. They didn't snap but it seemed to cause a power outage through the village last night. Ichiro is just going to help them out."

Lee absentmindedly seems to acknowledges this but heads off to his room somewhat uninterested. Once he is gone Masato adds, "There was also a call from the police, there is another storm on the way, but luckily the men already dispatched should make it here in a few hours or so."

You rush after Isao and see him enter the estate moments before you do as well.

"Sir!" you hear him yell. Looking to where he is rushing over you see the old husband to Saeko leaning against the wall blood spread out behind him and a phone hanging down by his side. Isao quickly starts trying to stop the bleeding.

As you stand over the scene you see that the blood had been dripping from one of the rooms around the corner. You hear a repeated bumping sound over and over again.

It looks like he is unconscious and has multiple stab wounds in his chest.

You turn around the corner and see a figure at the back of the room. -it holds something- The figure turns its head to face you. -something sharp- Multiple stab marks in the ground. -like a weapon- You stand still taking in the sight. -your leg aches- It takes a step towards you. -breathing heavy- Bloodshot eyes come closer -metal shines in the light-.

Lee is trying to get your attention. "Can pass the meat?" he says while pointing to the wooden slab over by your left, which has a knife and various uncooked slices of meat on it.

You reach out to grab the meat...


Suddenly the plate lifts up, by Yuuichi`s doing it seems. He passes it over to Lee.

You hear a thud and suddenly fall backwards.

A dark hall. Candle light. Shrine of Metal. Rokkenjima. Knife... Knife... Knife.

"Oi get it together!" Iaso is yelling at you as Shizuka is running off in the distance, the knife is planted firmly in the mat beside you as you recover from your pstd moment. You have a small gash on your arm but it isn't life threatening. You are however drenched in a deep sweat.

You try to stand up and impale your hand with the knife. You are bleeding now.

In a recoil, and perhaps thanks to adrenaline you forget the knife and rush after the girl who has now run into the forest.

You can see a clear trail where she ran through he snow, but suddenly it comes up to multiple deer tracks, as well as others. You can see her, but there are two tracks leading towards her, the high and the low trail. As you ponder it starts to snow heavily.

You climb up and continue the chase, eventually catching up as she is on the low plains. In the distance you see a large ravine that she is about to come up to. Along the side of the ledge you are following there is a tall tree that looks like it could shove over with a kick and block the path. However there is also a part off the cliff you are on that you might be able to jump to where she is as well. The snow makes it hard to see.

You kick the tree and it doesn't budge, you then tumble down the ledge and into the lower path as you hear her go further in. You pick yourself up finding it hard to see at all with the storm raging now.

The wind screams as it sends shards of ice pelting into your defenseless face.

A thick crunch each time your legs enter the snow. Branches hit your face and you race around, barely able to open your eyes let alone see anything but white.

There... you see her at the edge of the ravine. Now facing you now close enough she tries to say something "You... YOU!" she makes various mutterings under her breath yelling about Shiro.

You reach with with a flurry of grasp and manage to touch the tip of her hand, missing. Mid roll you quickly switch to the other hand and this time while alternating feet and grasp her hand just as she falls, and you slam into the ground, half dangling in the ravine.

She keeps flailing trying to make you let go as she floats above the seemingly bottomless ravine, and it slowly begins to pull you into it as well. You won't be able to hang on much longer.

BGM: Lamentation

You awoke three days later, having to hear what happened from Masato.

The police arrived at the scene but could do very little with the storm. Ichiro had gone out and braved the weather saying he knew the area better then anyone and found you on a ledge halfway down the ravine. He was not able to find Shizuka however.

The police were able to confirm afterwards that Saeko died from suffocation, later testing the pillow case found suggests it was most likely the murder weapon. Heihachiro died from the stab wound likely caused by the stick found on the roof of the Yamada house. Eiji the father who you never asked his name died from the stab wounds you found him with. After that however, not much was figured out. With the prime investigator and suspect missing it came to a standstill with the storm. Most of the evidence - what little there was - got covered up. The hardest part is that the only villagers who seemed to know anything hushed up about it.

After the storm had cleared and you had been evacuated out of the village they continued to search for the ravine but by the time they had found it she would have been certainly dead. The search effort for the body continued for a few weeks before being canceled, in hope some light would come in the summer.

You sat in the hospital hearing all the news trying to piece things together. Masato brought Yuuichi to talk with you and you were able to figure out why he asked you if you had a girlfriend. He heard Saeko talking about it with Shizuka when he had wandered out due to sleepwalking and hurt his feet. From the evidence you presume what he actually had heard was her talking about Shinjo, one of the men on the list. The police looked into the individuals on said list and found there had been potential arranged marriage meetings planned between Shizuka and them.

Thinking back on it you recall some of the things about the estate may have suggested abuse. The doors actively locked even within the household, the only thing of note in her room were tools and worn down toys (if you can call them that), the strict attitude between the parents and her. There were probably others but they escape you at the moment.

The Yamada's had disappeared almost as soon as they had arrived at the village, probably hiding from the company again. Koji was able to help you and Masato get away from the press with his father's connections, at least for now. After you returned it became clear that Koji had wanted to try and protect Shizuka, as he put it "seeing her in the village earlier... I could tell she was responsible", or so he said. The Fukushima couple left the house they had in that area of the village and the other villagers seemed to try and help confuse the press about who exactly was involved. The only ones unaccounted for were Isao and Lee, two people not from the village to begin with. It was almost like the whole area just up an vanished over night.

The matter of the individuals didn't concern the press at least. Now with two incidents under your belt it was no longer the murders themselves, be it Rokkenjima or Nisekawa, but the fact one man had played major roles in both that drew the attention of the press.

As you left the hospital about to get taken in by Koji's connections and say good bye to the press for a long time, you were swarmed one last time and asked a final bout of questions.

"Mr. Goldbar, who do you hold responsible for the Nisekawa Incident?"

"Have you caught wind of a new case and heading there now?"

"Are you actually the mastermind behind these crimes?"

You only have time to answer one before ducking into the car.

"I don't hold anyone responsible. And neither should you."

With a mix of confusion and outburst you duck out of sight before they can pester you any further.

The air of spring coming through the slightly opened window, you drive off prepared to move on from this incident.

BGM: Protest




"...Yeah it is finished. No problems."

A man with an eye patch holds a phone loosely by his head as he sits in a dark basement. A small light flickering in the corner.

"Necessary? ... No, I wouldn't say so. He can still be used at least."

He flips through some papers while listening whatever response from the other line.

"The old women was as they expect. It makes sense, after all due to the power being off and the pillowcase ended up where it was, the old man would have fallen by then right? So that's all she could have done. As for the old man himself, well, it was either as expected... or... someone... hid in the forest waiting for him with a broken branch. ...Hmm? How they left without a trace? Perhaps they just stayed in the forest all night. But who could have bothered to do such a thing?" he gives a sarcastic laugh.

He stands up to a table covered in various metal tools.

"Of course not. When you take off one mask nobody expects you to have yet another one already underneath. That being said, I think I will have to retire the 'Lee/Shinji' persona just to be safe."

He then walks over to the light corner, where a bloody man sits with various wounds. Arms tied down and legs to the chair. Seemingly moments away from death.

"Yeah, he is here," the eye patched man puts the phone up to the other's ear, "Wakey Wakey Isao... someone would like to have a word with you," he says with a unreadable grin.
