Good afternoon, dear Featherine.

I am deeply happy to announce that our promisse is fulfilled.... Our board is complete. This Game Board, as well as a new moon, is going to introduce a new circle inside your mind: The circle of mystery knowledge.

The game level is medium. We didn't want to prepare nothing too easy. We want to defy you, encourage your logical reasoning. This will be a lesson for you. Your first step to become a better player and, soon, a good Game Master.

However, before we start, I honorably present you your choices. Choose your destiny, choose your piece:

All of a sudden, three souls emerge from the cold and polished meta-room floor, vis-a-vis to Featherinne.

Ushiromiya Family Piece:
Ushiromiya Kyrie

Guests Pieces:
Terumasa Nanjo
Furudo Erika (if you don't choose her, she won't appear in this game board)

Did you already choose your piece? Yes? Perfect.

The selected soul becomes a little white chess piece and the others two vanish away, shattered by the cruel destiny of friendzone rejection.

Now, please, choose your Piece's appendices:

Do you want Detective Authority? Yes or No?
Will you follow any Inquisition Rules? Yes or No? If "Yes", choose between "Knox Decalogue" or "Van Dine Icosalogue" (And, before you ask: No, we aren't going to say if your Inquisition Rule will be applied)

Did you finish it? Yes? Great. Now, Witch of Theatergoing, tell us your choices. We'll love hear it!

Also, while you tell us, let it be know that Purple Declaration is going to value into our Game Board. Let me explain its rules:
1. Purple Declaration can be only used by Pieces.
2. Purple Declaration has same power of Red Truth.
3. Only the Culprit and Accomplices can lie using Purple Declaration.
4. Those who aren't Culprit or Accomplice will only tell the truth.
5. Your Piece can use Blue Truth inside Game Board. However, those who are targets of your Piece's Blue Truth are goint to answer using Purple Declaration, since it has same power as Red Truth.

Oh, God! I almost forget: Your aim inside this Game Board.
1. Unmask the culprit.
2. Deny all magic with logical reasoning. Obviously, you need to deny it following reasoning methods of investigation.

Simple, isn't it?

Good afternoon, Featherine Augustus Aurora.

My name is G. K. Chesterton. May you recognize me as a writer or an ex-inquisitor. They both correct.

Mister Eriko gave to you good choices to your detective. However, there is something missing. Probably you WANT Detective’s Authority. But if you refuse, I can guarantee another benefit, which is perhaps more useful.

It is “magic”. Your detective will be allowed to use a few summons in the Gameboard.

This will seem a paradox. You’re trying to deny the magic, but using the same. But as you know, the magic of your detective is a camouflage for his actions. Your advantage over the Detective’s Authority will be able to do things that an orthodox detective would be unable to do.
For example, you would be allowed to cast one of my assistants or Mister Eriko’s assistants. You could summon Gaap to be transported from one part of the island to another. You could ask my old friend, Flambeau, to unlock a door or take an item from a person or a locked room.
Summoning spellcasting, if accepted, will be explained in more detail. Of course, summoning spellcasting requires a detective without Detective’s Authority.
If you're wondering why a man like me to be offering magic, it is because I believe it is very useful. But if your interest is to live a purely logical detective and unable to perform magic, is your right. And your advantage, obviously, will not be fooled by fantastic scenes.

There is other purpose, too. My protected, the Inquisitor Dlanor A. Knox, is learning to deal with less “orthodox” concepts to solve mysteries. In particular, do not think the Knox’s Decalogue or the Van Dine’s laws are good enough to be considered orthodox.

However, this story meets Chesterton’s Principles of Mystery. I can tell you about them later, if you don’t know what is it.

Well, that is it. Too many choices, Miss Aurora. Choose wisely.

How interesting. Very well, allow me to accept your challenge in this game board. I, Featherine Augustus Aurora will do my best to cut the magic from the fabric of reality.

Now then, allow me to respond to your questions. Let's start from the begining, i choose Furudo Erika as my glorious piece on this gameboard, her intellect will be most useful to my plans.

Now then, as for the detective's authority, i will decline that power, and so, i am choosing to use magic as my ally. Please don't misunderstand me, i belive that my piece will do just fine without the detective's authority, she will use other methods to corner the witch.

And last, but not least, i choose the Knox decalogue as my inquisition rules. Why you ask? Because there are just ten rules. Ten certain rules that leaves no room of opposition to the defiers of mystery. And so, i made my choices.

Mister Eriko, Mister Chesterton, i pray that this experience teach us many things and i also pray that the three of us can have a little fun while we learn. With that said, i would love to hear your rules, my friend Chesterton.

"Very well, Featherine. I'm glad you accepted our challenge. But before we start, let me give you something very special."

From Eriko's camera, three colorful spheres of light emerge and go at you, surrounding your body like satellites.

"Those are my famous Devil Token I used on my previous game against Chess-kun. Right now, you cannot use them. I'll explain better in the course of our Chessboard."

Eriko gets up from his sit and raises his arms.

"It's now start our game, Featherine!

Sounds... Strage sounds..... No..... More like voices...... It seems very distant voices........ Hng... Where?

Smells... Salt....... Why my bodie is........ cold?

"Hey!...... Hey!......"

This voice.... Who? Who is it?

"Girl! Girl! Are you 'kay!?"

A girl's voice...... My eyes... I need!!

You slowy open your eyes, but you don't see a girl. You see a boy very close to your face. Behind him, you can see a dark sky, annoucing a dangerous storm. You can, also, see some people. But you can't see her faces too well, because your vision is blurred.

You cof. Cof, cof and cof. You tounge tastes stomach acid and salt water.

"You did it, George-aniki, you did it! You saved her life!"

"Thanks God, George-sama!"

"Uu~! George-onii-chan saved the girl! Uu~!"

"How you did it, George-onii-chan? The girl is ok?"

"*giggle* I know mouth-to-mouth breathing, Ange-chan." George says and look at you again. "What's your name? Where you from? What day is today? Can you tell me the name of your parents?"

Those are normal question, when a rescuer found someone awake in an accident.

The girl finally realised the world arround her. She was in a island, surrounded by people, probably locals. Little by little she begins to understand the questions that are being launched at her, and that her rescuer name was George.

"My name is Furudo Erika,i'm a detective...ah...my head. And....today is october 4th 1986. i don't really recall the name of my father or my mother....where am I, George-san?" After saying that, she feels an urge to vomit, and proceeds to do that in the sea. Her face is covered with bruises and stomachal liquid, she's in a bad state of health, and she feels extremealy weak.

"Furudo Erika... I see." George tries to smile, but he isn't able to do it. "Don't worry, Erika! We will lead you to our house! There is a doctor there."

"Here, George-sama." A girl is carrying some kind of blanket. "This will warm you, Erika-sama."

"Thanks, Shannon." He smiles.

"I'll help too, George-aniki! I'm strong, let me help you carrying her to the Mansion."

"Ah!, thanks, Jessica!"

Both George and Jessica carry you, covered by a blanket, as fast as they can to the Mansion.

Many minutes were taken and finally you all arrive.

"Nanjo-sensei! Nanjo-sensei!" George screams. You can't see too well, but you deduce you are in Main Entrance. "We need Nanjo-sensei now!"

Some minutes later, many other people arrive. You can't see them, but there is a lot.

"What happened!?" a woman says. "Is everything okay with Ange!?"

"And Maria? Where is her!?" other woman says.

"They are all alright, Kyrie-sama, Rosa-sama." Shannon says. "We found a girl at the beach."

"Yes! She seems an wreck!"

"What!?" a man says, horrified. "Genji told to us in the Parlor that a cruise sank on the ocean! Maybe she--"

The man's sentence stopped abruptly by an old man's voice. He was at the bottom of a staircase.

"I am here, everyone! Wha--" The, he saw you. "Hurry! Bring her to Parlor! Hurry! Hurry!"

You faint. Probably you couldn't handle anymore. You were powerless.


....... Hng..... Where am...? ............... Oh, I remmember now.....
.... The cruise..... The furious sea........ And those guys....... But my bodie is warm.... Very warm...... Ugh..... And I'm not feeling dizzy.......

"Again, what's her name?" You hear the old man's voice again.

"She said her name is Furudo Erika." George says.

"She is probably from that sank Cruise. Poor of her... Not even remmember her parents names."

"Well..... Probably her parents weren't at the Cruise. Let's think positive!"

"Look! She is waking!" you hear another woman's voice.

You open your eyes. You are now felling better. Much better.

"We're lucky for have many medicines. You give a shock to us, little lady!" The old man giggles. "I am Nanjo. Terumasa Nanjo, the doctor."

"I am George, Ushiromiya George. Those other girls that were with us at the beach are my cousins Jessica, Ange, Maria and one of our servants, Shannon."

"Nice to meet you, Erika-chan. I am Ushiromiya Natsuhi. And Jessica is my daughter. We tried to comunicate to the telephonist, trying to find your home, but it this storm destroyed our communication with external world.

Unfortunatly, we're captive in this island during all the weekend."

"Ah...nice to meet you, everyone. I'm Furudo Erika. Though I am an uninvited guest, i pray that you can all help me in this confused time."

Erika tries to get up, and she is helped by the many people, she bows and then she begins to explain her tragic situation.

"I was in a cruise with my parents, Ichihara Sakura and Tanaka Tomitake, we were in our family vacation, enjoying the japanese sea. I...really don't remember what happened...but I was tossed at the sea, and then carried by the waves...I was very lucky to meet you all in this island"

She realises the amount of people surrounding her, listening to her every word, she liked that. She was before anything else, a detective, and so, she adored to speak to a silent croud, explaining facts. She bowed once again and continued.

"Ushiromiya Natsuhi-san, i appreciate your kindness in trying to contact someone on the phone, but as you said, this is quite a storm. I don't know if i have any documents, but if you need any information from me, i will try to the best of my abilities to remember anything. And I hope to be an well-manered uninvited guest in this weekend, without getting in the way of the family duty."

She bowed once again.

"I understand, Erika-chan." Natsuhi smiles, don't letting none looking through her sad thoughts about her parents. "You helped us a lot remmembering your parents name. We can try to contact some of your relatives when this weekend over.

Now, please, follow me to your room. On second floor, we have a VIP Room waiting for you, Erika-chan. There have some clothes and it's a very comfy and cozy room."

"I'll go with you, Natsuhi-san." Nanjo says. "I'll carry some medicine for you."

You and Nanjo follow Natsuhi until VIP Room. You can see it's a very beatiful room.

"We arrived, Erika-chan." Natsuhi says.

You take a good look at the room: There is a bed, fireplace, chairs and table, a dressing table, a wardrobe, a clock hanged on the wall and another door.

"Oh, that door is to a private bathroom." Natsuhi says. "There is some clothes in the wardrobe. Here is the key."

Natsuhi handles to you VIP Room's key and Nanjo put your medicines on the table.

"We will leave for now. Please, fell yourself in home." Natsuhi and Nanjo levaes, closing the door.

You look at the clock: It's now 17:45.
_________________________________________________________________

Suddenly, everything gets black and white and the time stops. Featherine, Chesterson and Eriko appears inside VIP Room.

"Before we continue our game, Chesterson needs to talk about something." Eriko says.

A pause for an explanation, Miss Featherine.

Inside the desk drawer of the VIP room, you will have a spellbook. This spellbook contains various summons. With this, you can use the magic of your piece. Keep your spellbook with you always!

In the pages of the spellbook, there are spells ready for casting. You have the following beings which you may summon.

Belial: He worked on Heaven's armed military organization, similar to SSVD and Eiserne Jungfrau. For unknow reason, he was banned from Heaven. He knows a lot of war and gameboar tatics. He's one of most powerful demons and is only summom by High-level Witches. If you want to win gameboards and wars, Bel-kun is your kind of demon.

Ronove: He is a butler demon. Due to this, Witches always summom him to eat his cookies and drink his tea. He utilizes barriers for both offense and defense, generating strong ones to both deflect attacks and launch enemies backwards. He can also use a special barrier that returns damage back to the attacker. He share a sort of link with Ronoue Genji.

Gaap: She is a funny demon. She draws power from the Abyss to summon holes that can lead anywhere, although there are limits. Oh!... She likes to give nicknames to everyone.

Father Brown: Father Brown is a short, stumpy Catholic priest, "formerly of Cobhole in Essex, and now working in Heavenly Court," with shapeless clothes and a large umbrella, and uncanny insight into human evil. He cannot give to you the answer, but can give you some tips.

Flambeau: He is a reformed criminal. Father Brown foiled his attempted crimes in several other stories. As a notorious and elusive criminal, Flambeau is a worry for law-enforcers. He is exposed by Father Brown early on, and perhaps as a result becomes a detective himself. Despite this, he has an unusual ease in pilfering objects and to unlock any kind of locks.

Napoleon: Napoleon is a skilled fighter. Erika can help fight supernatural enemies.

Moreover, we hide in the island several scrolls. If you feel you have some free time, look them up. They can contain more characters to help you.

In this gameboard, you are entitled to three summons, although that has more options. For each solution of the mystery good or good RP of your piece, you will be added one more summoning.

Any questions?

"And let me complete your sentence, Chess-kun: The drawer of dressing table, besides keep that book, you can use as 'chest' for your items.

Inside the drawer, there is a key that can lock and unlock it. There is only one in all Rokkenjima. With this, all your item are safe.

Any questions? If you don't, please, move your piece."

Erika entered her room and quickly made herself comfortable. She opened the curtains but left the windows untouched. After doing that, she did the same with the bathroom. And then, she noticed the drawer, wich she opened. There, she found an old book with some funny writings and a key. She took the key and locked the drawer. She changed her clothes and then she placed the key in the insides of her bra.

"<Good> Now i have almost everything i need. *giggle* Soon a crime will occur and i will be the detective that will unmask the true culprit. Thesse pathetic fools will behold my intellectual might soon enough. Now...the phone."

Erika rwached for the phone, and tried to talk to the servant Kumasawa.

"Well...so much for trying usual methods, I think I will do something a little more bold."

Erika hang up the phone and proceed to leave the room, she locks the room and put the key in her bra, once again.

"Now, she muttered to herself, the first idiot who cross my path will help me, who will be I wonder..."

And then, she begins to walk freely in the mansion.

You don't walk for much. In fact, you don't even go out from 2nd floor.

"Hey, Erika!" it's Jessica. You see her getting out her room. "Mom said that you are alright now. And, look! Our rooms are on the same floor! *giggle*

Oh... I almost forgot: My name is Jessica."

She smiles and stands her hand to greet you, when you saw... In her hand...

A silver ring.

"Ah... This ring?" suddenly, Jessica's face becomes sad. "It's a long story, but I will try to shorten for you:

My father, Krauss, is the first son of Kinzo, my grandfather. Gramps has 4 children: Krauss, Eva-oba-san, Rudolf-oji-san and Rosa-oba-san.

Since my father is the elder, he was the one fated to inherit Headship. But when I was born, Gramps decided to skip his children's generation and made me his successor.
This rings, the Successor's Ring, is identical to Head's Ring: But mine is made of silver, while his is made of gold.

When I complete 21 years, I can be officialy Ushiromiya's Head. While this doesn't happen, Gramps is going to be the Head. If he dies and I'm not turned to 21 yet, my father will be a temporary Head."

Jessica sighs, showing that she doesn't like this subject. "I am sorry, Erika, did I bother you with my booooring story?"

"But Kumasawa... I think she is in Servant's Room. I can lead you there if you wish."

It is clear Jessica feels something wrong with Erika, who wants to speak with Kumasawa having appeared almost drowned in the beach and not knowing almost no one on the island, but she has no objections.

"Yes, Erika-sama." Shannon stands up and catch a school case in one of drawers.

While Shannon was searching for the pen, you notice that above the drawers there is a portrait of a young lady with silver hair.

"Found it!" Shannon says with a smile in her face. "Inside there is a pen, pencil, pencil sharpner, eraser and a school scissor (without that dangerous tip).

Do you need anything else, Erika-sama?"

Erika leaves the room and goes to her room. When she finally get there she took the key from her bra and then she opened the door. When she was finally inside, she locked the door and she begun her work.

Erika took fragments of duct tape and then she wrote her name "Furudo Erika" and another name "Featherine Aurora" on the fragments. She put those seals in all of her windows, including the one in the bathroom. When she was done, she unlocked the drawer, placed the duct tape and the pen inside, and took the grimoire from there.

"Nice to meet you, Belial-chan. I am your master now, and we have a lot of work to do. I will now ask you a few things, and you will confirm or deny them in red, according to the question. Let's start, my devilish furniture.

1: How many humans are there in Rokkenjima?
2: My seals will be equal to thee red truth?
3: Can you provide me a map of the mansion and the guesthouse?
4: For how long can you accompany me?
5: Is there someone who's already dead at this point of the game? like Ushiromiya Kinzo for example.

"I can't respond questions #1 and #5, since it's beyond my permission in this Gameboard, Erika-sama. Now, about other questions:

#3: I can't provide this to you. I have to ask to some not-fantasy piece;
#4: The time is unknow. I can be with you until the end or just five mintues. This will depend from Game Masters.
#6: You follow Knox Decalogue, right? 'Knox no 2: It is forbidden for supernatural agencies to be employed as a detective technique.' Because of that, you can't hear like a dog, see in the night like a cat, climb the walls like a spider, etc, etc, etc. If you want to climb until 3rd floor, use a ladder, for example.

Now... About question #2...."

Belial points at the tapes on the window: It is taking off by itself. Imediatly, a golden butterfly appear and catch one of the tapes. Belial analyzes it.

"It seems this duct tape is out of its validity. It's complety useless."

"YOU USELESS PIECE! AHHHHHHHH! HOW HUMILIATING! I CAN'T EVEN USE MY ABILITIES! SUCH DISGRACE TO THE MYSTERY GENRE! AHHHHHHHHH! I WOULD KILL THEM ALL IF I WASN'T THE DETECTIVE. Can you ask a non-fantasy piece for the maps?! Can you?! I need those maps...i must know this territory! At any rate, Belial! I want you to stay with me as longa as you can! it would be particularly useful if you coulde be with me in the dinner, in that way, i can confirm with the red the nunber of people in the dining hall. Ahhh! Such disgrace, such disgrace!"
She throws a chair in her bed, and begin to walk in rage. She is thinking....and she comes to an conclusion.

"Belial! I will walk in this filthy mansion now! Come with me! Who knows, we might find ourselfs a map."

Erika, still in rage, locks her drawer, leaves the room, lock the door, hide the keys in her bra, and proceeds on her walk. She begins to walk on the direction of Kinzo's study.

"Let me correct myself since Eriko-sama is useless and wrote something wrong: YOU have to ask for a non-fantasy piece for a map. Also, it isn't a good strategy to go to Head's room. You need a map, right?"

But you can't hear him, because your trantum prevented you from hear any word of your Demon.

"..... I'll be with you, fear not, Erika-sama." Belial becames a ghost and both get out from VIP Room. But before you leave, you take a look at the clock: It's 18:15.

Luck for you, none heard your screams. You and Belial took a little of time to find Kinzo's room, but you finally find it. The door is obviously closed.

You are on the bottom of staircase to Kinzo's room. You are in a slipt: On your right side, the corridor to your room and other room before yours and another after yours.

"Yes, there is! Wait a minute, please." you hear a woman voice and after this a chain sound. "Ora, it's you, Erika? Please, come in."

You come into the room. You take a look at it: A normal room. Two beds, one table with chairs, a dresser and an another to the private bathroom. Sit on the chair, you see another man eating some snacks.

"I am Ushiromiya Eva and this is my husband, Hideyoshi." Eva says, smiling.

For a moment, you could see Natsuhi's smile and eyes shine like a newborn sun. An explendid teacher's smile, ready to teach her kidengarden children.

"Oh, boy..." Belial facepalms. "I know that smile."

"Please, Erika-chan! Come in, come in!" Natsuhi open her door like a anti-terrorism squad.

You come in, already regrating your decision. You look all around her bedroom: Bed, dressing table, table and chairs, wardrobe, door to a private bathroom, telephone and a clock on the wall. It's now 18:20.

"Take a seat, please." She says while calling for someone trought her telephone. "Gohda-san? Yes, it's Natsuhi. Please, prepare for me and Erika-chan some snacks and our best tea. Me and her will have a long and pleasent talk. *giggle*"

She hangs up the telephone and sits vis-a-vis to you on the table. Some minutes later, Gohda knocks on the door.

"Ah! Finally! I thought he would never arrive!" She opens the door, takes the snacks and close the door, thanking Gohda. "Let's see what Gohda prepared to us."

Some sandwiches and mini chocolate mousses.

"You are going to love Gohda-san's food! It's totally perfect!" She laughs. "While you enjoy our chef's food, listen to our glorious Family history: the Ushiromiya Family Epic! Much better than 'The Lusiads', from poet Camões!"

"And much much much longer." Belial says. "I'll take a rest on her bed while you listen her 'epic novel'"

Said and done: Belial was already on her bed, with eyes closed.

"Let's start from the begging." Natsuhi said like a teacher for special kids.

"Genisis 1

1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 Now the earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. 3 And God said: 'Let there be light.' And there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. 5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day." Belial says, trying to sleep.

"Ushiromiya Family History can be divided in three Eras: Pre-Kanto Earthquake Era, Post-Kanto Earthquake Era and Neo-Post-Kanto Erthquake Era." She drinks her tea like a tiny little bird and then speaks again. "In Pre-Kanto Earthquake Era, Ushiromiya Family was a great high society Family: Influence, prestige, money, good manners... Everything that a family needed, they had. They were aim of envy and greed. Everyone wanted to be an Ushiromiya.

Now, you ask to me: 'Earthquake? When? How?' I can see you are a curious and adorable child, but if you don't remmember, Japan is situated in an area called 'Fire Circle Area'.
This designation was created in 1929, but I don't remmeber who created it. But continuing, this designation is to say that some areas in our planet are above a large amount of collision between tectonic plates. Also indicates that those areas have a lot of volcanic eruptions.
But three years before this designation being created, a horrible and devastating earthquake happened. This is the famous 1923-Kanto Earthquake.
My mother told me she was with my father at our Family Temple. She also said that almost all mirrors inside the temple broke. However, one mirror survived."

Natsuhi got up from her chair and went at her dressing table. She opened a small box and from there..... She took a mirror.

"Here." She put it on the table. "And the scariest fact: My family's temple isn't in Kanto region. That earthquake is a result of bad youkais. I can surely say this."

And then she laughs. "But what this have to do with Ushiromiya Family History? Well, nothing. Just a funny fact.

Now, continuing: When this happened, a lot of people died, including some Ushiromiya's."

She got up again, kept her mirror in its small box and caught a book.

"This book is a scrapbook with many journal news about 1923-Kanto Earthquake. Also it has many photos. If you want to look while listen Ushiromiya Family History, here it is! But be careful: There is many tragic photos.

Again, continuing: Many rich and influential families were broke, including Ushiromiya's. No money, no influence, no prestige... They were broke, over. A glorious family was together with poor and nameless people. What a tragid, right, Erika-chan!? With this Earthquake, the glorious 'Pre-Kanto Earhtquake Era over and began 'Post-Kanto Earthquake Era'

But not everthing was lost yet! The elders of that time elected our Grand Father, Ushiromiya Kinzo, as the next head! Sometime later, he married with a lovely and priceless prestigious lady named Ajimu.
But not everthing was fixed yet: Ushiromiya Family was still broke. They were very lucky to have a beatiful house to live. And the things was getting worse: II World War arrived.
And as a Ushiromiya Head, he throwed himself in front of our Great Country to defend ir against the enemies! At that time, he had three children: Krauss, my husband, Eva and Rudolf. Rosa wasn't born yet.

Many years later, he was back from the war........ With gold. Yes! Gold! You ask to me now: 'Where? When? How?'

He always says that in 1944, during the War, he met with a Western Witch named Beatrice. He made a contract with her and she gave to him 20 tons of gold. However, I don't know what is 'write' in this contract. Only Father and the Witch know about it.

Well... With all this gold, he raised Ushiromiya Family from the poverty and we were back to the destroyed high society. We were, once more, the top!
With this, 'Post-Kanto Earthquake Era' over and began the current Era: 'Neo-Post-Kanto Earthquake Era'. The most important Era.

Now, Kinzo has four children and many years later, Ajimu died. I still miss her sometimes, when I look to my marriage photos.

Our family is now what is is due to Father's effort! But he gives too much credit for the witch. Do you beleive he even made an artist made a portrait in her honor? This happened in 1984, two years late.
However, last year, 1985, he dreamt with Beatrice. He said he was furious about that portrait, saying that she wasn't like that and, in her dream, showed to him how she really looked like.
On the next day, he destroyed that portrait and made the same artist made another portrait. The portrait is hanged on the wall of Main Hall, if you want to see."

She fills her tea cup and yours with more tea. You look to Belial and envies him.

That bastard... How dare him sleep while you are suffering with all this boredoom!?

"And now, the Hierarchy: Father was created in a Family that only accepts man as Head and woman only needs to learn how to cook and have children. Also, only the first child has the right to be the Head. If the first child dies before s/he inhret the Headship, then the second child will be the head, and so on.

Here, let me simplify for you."

Natsuhi catches paper and pen and start to scribble.

"As you can see, if my husband dies before he inhret Headship, then Eva will be the Head. However, Eva is a woman and according to Father's law, she can't inhret Headship. This means that George, her son, will be the next head.
Now you ask: 'But if you and Krauss-san had a boy and not a girl?'
If that happened, then our son would be the next head. But, if Jessica marries with someone, then her husband will be the next head.

Do you unders--

Ah! I almost forgot!"

She stands up, smiling very happly. "Ushiromiya Family has an anthem! I wrote by myself! I'll sing the first time and the second one we sing together!"

She prepare her voice, and sang:


Ushiromiya, thine is our devotion,

Family of hearth and home,
Rising storm-scarr'd from the ocean,
Where the breakers foam.
Of to thee our thoughts are wending,
Family that gave us birth,
And to saga nights still sending
Dreams upon our earth,
And to saga nights still sending
Dreams upon us on our earth
Men of Ushiromiya, be your dwelling
Cottage, house or farm,
Praise the Lord Goldsmith who all compelling
Sav'd our family from harm.
The valour of a father
On the battlefield

"Now, with me!"

You, without a way out. Sing together.

"Now, only you!"

You control yourself, and sing.

Natsuhi laughs, clapping her hands. "Adorable, Erika-chan! Adorable! *giggle*"

Natsuhi sighs, happy. "That was fun, very fun. So... Do you need something else?"

"*yaaaaaawn* .... Hun.... What a perfect sleep." Belial says, doing a stretching. He gets out from Natsuhi's bed and gives to you a malicious smile. "Looking at your face, it seems Natsuhi made you sing that stupid anthem. *ahaha.wav*"

"Because when Natsuhi starts to talk about it, NOTHING can stop her. One time I tryied to shut up her mouth with magic. For my surprise: An anti-magic toxin surrounded her mouth and destroyed my seal. Her heart is so devotated to Ushiromiya Family that not even can destroy it."

"Good. Time to search. Belial, now you will se a professional detective working."

Erika searched the entire room, whithiut making a mess she:

Undid the bed, and moved the mattress, searching in the bed clothing and the bed itself. She re-arranged the bed once again, perfectly.

She entered the wardrobe and searched in the inside, moving Krauss's clothes, and re-arranging them later.

She looked in his drawer, searching for hidden places of all sorts.

She also looked under every spot she could. She also looked behind,under and in the top of the curtain.

Erika searched in the roof, arranging the chair as some sorte of ladder.

The shw went to the bathroom, where she removed everything from place, searching in tha bathtub, the sink, the toilet, the place where Krauss stored his medicines and bathroom stuff, the roof and the window.

She returned o the room and examined the sofas, removing the pillows and the seats, she also looked under and behind both sofas.

Erika Took the telephone and the clock and examined every part of them to see if there was some secret hiding place to store a scroll. She examined VERY carefully.

And finally, the table. She looked under,above,on the sides and in did the same with the chairs.

After doing that, she arranged everything so neatly that it seemed almost as if she didn't done any search at all.

Erika found at desk several papers who contains informations about Krauss' debts. Krauss owes a lot of money to his brothers.

More than that, beneath the desk, there is a wastebasket containing a small scroll.

The scroll summons Goat-kun. Erika needs to transcribe the scroll to her spellbook and she can use her new summon.

You do your lock&unlock routine in door's room and drawer. You transcribe "Goat Butler Enchant" to your spellbook.

When you finish it, you look at the clock: It's now 19:40. You still have 1:50 left and Jessica's room to explore.

What will you do now, Detective Erika?

[Jessica's room image: http://i44.tinypic.com/ckqv7.jpg ]

You get out from your room, doing your luck&unlock routine and goes to Jessica's room. You knock once and then try to open. For your luck, the door is unlocked.

It's like Krauss' room: Bed, desk, sofa, two tables, coffe table, wardrobe, clock alarm, door to a private bathroom and a drawer. And near to Jessica's bed, you see a straw basket with a confortable blanket in it.

Inside too, you see a cat. A beatiful white cat. That cat remmembered you about your deceased Master, The Witch of Miracles, Bernkastel.

Suddenly, the door closes and locks by itself. A white fog starts to invade Jessica's room. What is happening?

And finally... The cats open its eyes. Beatiful and penetrating eyes, but at same time, empety eyes.

The cat walks until you very slowy and bit by bit a flight of silver butterflies follow it, revealing the true form of that cat.

It is....... Henrica Le Blanche.

"Hello, my daughter."

"I see..." Henrica close her eyes for an instant and open then again. "They didn't told you about my existence.

I am Henrica Le Blanche. When my old 'I', Bernkastel, was cruely killed by The Black Witch, I was born by the remains of myself.

However, different from my old 'I', I don't have emotions and any of my powers to control miracle. I was born with one aim: Pay for the sin of my old 'I', Bernkastel. I did many horrible things in the past and now I suffer, puryfing bit by bit of my being.

But don't worry, my daughter, I am not sad for you don't know about my existence until now. It would be very terrifying for you to know the one truth about your mother."

"I'll leave for now, Henrica." Belial says. "You two need a moment alone."

"Thank you very much, Belial-sama." Henrica bows to him and the demon disappears.

Silence. Completely silence between you two. Until...

"I ask for your forgiviness, my daughter. I did a lot of horrible things with you:

Killed your parents in that cruise.
Tortured you in many ways during [END] and [DAWN].
Banished you to the void of nothing in [DAWN], when you needed my help more than never.

And the most unforgivable act of mine old 'I':

Made your deared and loved boyfriend cheated on you. I played with your heart, my daughter, making you beleive that love is nothing more than ashes and have a heart doesn't value not even a mere coin.
I made you beleive that becoming a Witch would be the answer to everything. That you would never get hurt again. I played with your wishes, your hopes...

I even played with your last name, Furudo. That tragical disaster on Hinamizawa. Many people in your town thought that your family was the 'Furude Family' and they mistreated and humiliated your family.

I am sorry for all of this, my daughter. Please, forgive me.

However, you don't need to answer me right now. You can think for how many time you want. Just try to answer until the end of this game board. This is the only thing I ask to you, even if I don't deserve to ask anything for you."

"....My old master, i do have a few things to say....and i'm not being mean or sarcastic....I really adored you. I accept your request. But I must not do it now. I must defeat the witch first, without your help or blessing. You master, the great Aurora have allowed my ressurection....and i'm very grateful. And so, I beg you to leave.

"I respect your option." Henrica approaches closer to you. "Thank you for at least think in my will. Good luck, my daughter."

Henrica kisses you on your forehead. She doesn't have emotions, but she still is a mother. Even if that kiss has no emotions, it is a kiss from a mother.

Bit by bit, the white fog disappears and Henrica becomes a cat again. Jessica's door unlocks and opens and Henrica gets away from there.

"I'm back." Belial says. Some momentos later, he closes the door. "Ready for search another scroll?"

"Always, my devilish furniture."

Erika searched the entire room, whithout making a mess. She:

Undid the bed, and moved the mattress, searching in the bed clothing and the bed itself. She re-arranged the bed once again, perfectly.

She entered the wardrobe and searched in the inside, moving Jessica's clothes, and re-arranging them later.

She looked in her drawer, searching for hidden places of all sorts.

She also looked under every spot she could. She also looked behind,under and in the top of the curtain.

Erika searched in the ceiling, arranging the chair as some sorte of ladder.

The she went to the bathroom, where she removed everything from place, searching in tha bathtub, the sink, the toilet, the place where Jessica stored her medicines and bathroom stuff, the ceiling and the window.

She returned o the room and examined the sofas, removing the pillows and the seats, she also looked under and behind both sofas.

Erika Took the telephone and the clock and examined every part of them to see if there was some secret hiding place to store a scroll. She examined VERY carefully.

And finally, the table. She looked under,above,on the sides and in did the same with the chairs.

After doing that, she arranged everything so neatly that it seemed almost as if she didn't done any search at all.

In Meta World, Eriko claps:

"Congratulations! You received two prizes!

1) You have one more Devil Token, due to your perfect RP with Erika in her recent scene with Henrica. This means you have three summoms left."

Another shine and colorful sphere surrounds Featherinne, together with that other two.

"2) When Erika examine Henrica's straw basket, she finds another scroll. It's Henrica Scroll.

What its power? The power of White&Black Cat Joker Cards.
If you don't remmember, you have to use these two cards at same time. If you don't, then both are destroyed.

White Cat Joker Card: Summons Henrica to talk with Jessica. She tries to convince Jessica to do something. But, I am warning: Jessica can do what Henrica said now or only at the end. Depends on the situation.

Black Cat Joker: Gives to you the power of Black Truth. You can use it in one - I repeat: ONLY ONE - inanimate object. For example: 'None can leave or exit trought Parlor's door.'

"As you wish, Erika-sama." Belial says, while you do your lock&unlock routine.

You both go downstairs to the Parlor, passing by the Main Hall.

"I thought Grandfather would change Beatrice's portrait again, this year." George says.

You look at them: George, Jessica, Genji, Maria and Ange. Everyone was in front of Beatrice's portrait.

"Uu~! Beato can change her form everytime she wants! She is a powerfull witch! Uu~! If she wants to be another woman, she will!"

"You don't need to get nervous about it, Maria-sama." Genji coughs. "Beatrice-sama *cofcof* is surely a witch."

"Genji, you need to talk to Nanjo-sensei about this cough." Jessica says.

"Don't worry, Jessica-sama, I am alright."

You get closer to them a look very closely to Beatrice's portrait. What a beatiful portrait, right?

"Hello, Erika-sama." Genji says, coughing again. "Yes, Beatrice-sama is very similar to Eva-sama in her young age."

"I was shocked when I saw my mother in this portrait." George says, laughing. "But I think it's just a big coincidence."

"Kihihihi. It's obviously a big coincidence. Beatrice just thought it would get more beatiful become a witch with a new woman form." Maria says, with a creepy smile.

"I am sorry, Jessica-sama, but I can't fulfill your order. Kinzo-sama ordered to me to be everytime with you."

"You are a good butler and man, Genji-san." George says. He looks at you, ready to explain. "Since Jessica-chan was born, Genji-san was always at her side. This was an order from Grandfather, because Jessica is his successor and she needs orientation."

You try to look behind the portrait, but it didn't move. You try sometimes more, but you don't succed. It seems it's too heavy for you. You decide, then, to look around it, but nothing. You go to the windows and spent sometime trying to look in the high areas, since you are very short.

Then, you go to the carpet: It's very big. You roll it until you find the scroll.

You roll half of it and you finally made it! You can see a tip of the scroll, when...

"WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY CARPET!?" Krauss screams, surprized, confused and nervous. He walks until you and steps onto the tip of the scroll.

"Uhn...?" Krauss take a step back a look on the floor. "This... paper?"

He catches the paper and look at it. He smiles. "Ohohoho! This paper! This is from my father's book! You know, he has a weird intersting about magic and those stuff. Some days ago, he lost a book.

Do you have more of those papers?"

"....No, i haven't I just found this one. Nee, Krauss-san, i am a BIG fan of the occult, althought i am a non-beliver. This kind of literature is precious to me....Let's make a deal? You allow me to read this tiny little page in my room, and i will give it to Kinzo-san in person, during dinner, with my sincerest apology. What do you think?"

"I have a better deal: I'll copy this magic spell of something to another paper and give to you.

As long as you promisse to not torment Maria-chan anymore: My daughter told me what you did to her. I could simply get away and don't give this paper to you, but Natsuhi saw something into you that makes her like you.

So, for her, I'll allow you to have a copy of this paper, following my conditions. Alright?"

"Great. Now, please, follow me until my room."

You follow him to his room and he makes a copy of that scroll to you. "Here it is. If you excuse me, I need to do some stuffs."

He goes away, letting you alone in his room. You look at his clock on the desk: It's now 20:20.

What will you do now?

Erika leaves the room and perform her routine of unlocking and locking her room and drawer. She copies the information in the scroll to her grimoire. After she was done, Erika stored her grimoire once again."

"Now then, the last search for the day....."

Erika begun to search her own room for a scroll.

Erika searched the entire room, whithout making a mess. She:

Undid the bed, and moved the mattress, searching in the bed clothing and the bed itself. She re-arranged the bed once again, perfectly.

She entered the wardrobe and searched in the inside, moving everything that was inside.And re-arranging them later.

She looked in her drawer, searching for hidden places of all sorts.

She also looked under every spot she could. She also looked behind,under and in the top of the curtain.

Erika searched in the ceiling, arranging the chair as some sorte of ladder.

The she went to the bathroom, where she removed everything from place, searching in tha bathtub, the sink, the toilet, the place where she stored her medicines and bathroom stuff, the ceiling and the window.

She returned o the room and examined the sofas, removing the pillows and the seats, she also looked under and behind both sofas.

Erika Took the telephone and the clock and examined every part of them to see if there was some secret hiding place to store a scroll. She examined VERY carefully.

And finally, the table. She looked under,above,on the sides and in did the same with the chairs.

After doing that, she arranged everything so neatly that it seemed almost as if she didn't done any search at all.

When you search inside the drawer, you find a false bottom. Surprized, you take off this false bottom and find a beatiful doll holding a scroll.

You take the scroll and read it: "Claire Vaux Bernadus".

You copy the texto to your spellbook.

You close your eyes and sleep a good and deep sleep.

.................. .............. .... .... ....

*knock**knock*

"Erika-san." You open your eyes automaticly. "Erika-san, it's dinner time."

You recognize that voice. Natsuhi's voice. You get up from your bed and unlock the door very carefully, so Natsuhi can't notice.

"Great, you are up. Let me lead you to the dinning room." She smiles and turns around. You advantages this oportunity and lockes your door.

You see everyone going to the dinning room too and try to see the sequence of people get into there.

Kyrie, Rudolf, Rosa, Ange, Maria, Eva, Hideyoshi, George, Nanjo, Krauss, Natsuhi, You and Jessica.

Now, who is sitting where.

Sit at the tip: Nobody.
Sit at tip's right side (near to far): Krauss, Natsuhi, You, Nanjo and Rosa. At Rosa's side, there is a empty sit. You deduce that is for her disappeared husband, Fang Qi.
Sit at tip's left side (near to far): Hideyoshi, Eva, Rudolf, Kyrie, Ange, Maria, George and Jessica.

Belial is floating above the dinning table, near to the lamp. Since there is a lot of anti-magic toxin, he can't be at your side, because those eyes could burn him to death.

Some minutes later, Shannon and Kanon arrive with two food carts.

"How odd..." Hideyoshi says. "Where is Gohda-san? He always be with us in the dinner, talking about his delicous plates."

"You are right, Hideyoshi-san." Rudolf says. "And Genji-san and Kumasawa aren't here too."

"Gohda-san is at the kitchen." Natsuhi says. "Also, I ordered to Genji-san help him there. Gohda-san said he will do a lot of food for us in this meeting."

"Kumasawa-san is with Gramps." Jessica says. "It seems she will--"

"Now that everything is cleared." Krauss says, while getting up from his chair, interrupting his daughter sentece. "Let's greet, everyone, our unexpected guest, Furudo Erika."

Everyone smile to you and *clap**clap*. To them, you are a survivor: Without parents and without any contact with your relatives for two days..... And still, you are calm and smilling.

You are a really good actress, don't you? *ahaha.wav*

Erika ADORED the clapping, after all, she was the main actor in this play. Ah, it is so <good> to see these fools clapping me, it's really soothing, Erika tought.

"Everyone, i am truly grateful for this incredible reception. I, Furudo Erika, will do my best to be an good guest in my short stay here. I pray that all of us can become really close friends. And, as a sign of proof for my words, at the end of the dinner, i will tell everyone a little more about myself, since you only know my name, and nothing else. Now, i will be delighted to taste this incredible food. Thank you all very much, Ushiromiya Family. Thank you all for saving me and then help me as you all have bell helping."

Erika rises and bows to the family.

Time passes and everyone looks at Gohda's delicious food. Particularly at that dinner, the meal is better than the other years. Kanon and Shannon places food on the table.

Then, Kumasawa enters. She sweats a lot.

"I... I am pleased to announce the coming of the Ushiromiya Family's Patriarch, Ushiromiya Kinzo."

"HOW ARE YOU, YOU FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLS?", Kinzo screams happily.

Everyone in that room are surprised. No one expects the Spanish Inquisition Kinzo could came at dinner. Even Natsuhi and Krauss are speechless.

"What is the problem? You look as if you had seen a ghost!", he laughs, mocking everyone.

"N-No... father... We're just glad you're in good health", Eva tries to deny, hiding her face with the fan.

"Do not lie to me, Eva. I know everyone here wants to take my money. You bunch of useless sons!"

"...I told you...", Natsuhi says, "I told you all Father is fine..."

"SHUT UP, NATSUHI, NO ONE ASKED WHAT DID YOU SAID", Kinzo interrupts her.

"Sorry, Father..."

"WHOOOOOOOOAAAAAA!", Kinzo screams, "We have a guest! What is your name?"

Kinzo looks at Furudo Erika.

Erika quickly regained her composture, and talked to Kinzo, a creepy smile on her face.

"Pleased to meet you, Ushiromiya Kinzo-san, I'm Furudo Erika, the uninvited guest and the detective. I came here after i fell from my cruise, wich sank. I may be an uninvited guest, but please welcome me. I was very anxious to meet you in person."

Belial appears behind you, using you as a barrier, where the looks of everyone can't reach him and destroy him with their anti-magic toxin. Then, he whispers in your ear:

"With exception of Toshiro Gohda and Ronoue Genji, everyone in Rokkenjima is inside this dinning room. In other words, there is 19 people in this island."


"Hoh...? So you are welcome. But be careful, we have some snakes in this islands. And they bite."

He sits at his chair and looks to everyone.

"What you waiting for? EAT", he commands and starts to eat and drink.

"Father, about sucession...", Eva tries to start a conversation.

"No conversations at table, Eva! After the dinner, we can talk."

"But Father, this is important..."

"WHAT IS IMPORTANT, I DECIDE. EAT OR YOU WILL BE DESERTED!"

Eva starts to eat and no one tries to talk again.

Erika ate her dinner and dessert with utmost elegance, her manners were on par with Kinzo's. She was truly an lady, with an good smile, and cunning intelect. At the end of the dessert, she spoke to everyone, but looked at Kinzo.

"Now, as I promised, I would like to tell my tale, and say a few things, Ushiromiya family. Can I, Ushiromiya Kinzo-san?"

She wore an beautiful smile, but to someone with knowldge in body comunication, it would seem like an arrogant, and evil smile.

"Well then, as I said, my name is Furudo Erika. My hometown is Hinamizawa village, and i lived there with my parents until i was twelve.I can't really recall the year but, some people tried to construct something BIG in my village, and most of the town was against, with a few exceptions, my parents were those exceptions, among others. We were hunted, and i left my home, luckly, i was found by a man named Ooishi, a police officer. He took me and tried to find my parents, in vain. After a few years, he adopted me, the most powerful mind in the region. With my intellect, i solved many crimes and mysteries, helping the police. After a while, i was pretty famous. But the fame brought me more disgrace, and i begun to be hunted by criminals, and so, the police made a new family to me, the ones i told you about. Ooishi-san was worried for me, so he sent me to Tokyo, where i lived with my fake parents. But i continued to help the police, after all, i am the detective. Well, Ooishi-san recomended me a little vacation, to cool of my head, and so, i took that cruise, and you know the rest of the story."

Erika sighed.

"And that's my personal story. Ah, almost forgot to tell you all a few things."

Erika changed her tone, it became serious.

"I have red over 500 mysteries books, and solved them all, so, you can all see the extent of my abilities. I belive in rationalism and science, things i can touch and proove, and so, i don't belive in nothing coming from the occult, absolutly nothing, althought i am slightly interessed in ocuult literature. In that sense, no matter the mystery, i can solve it. NO matter the difficult of the closed room, i can solve it. NO matter how hard the trick, i can see it. And so, i welcome anyone who wants to cahllenge me to such a game, i just love to excercice my little gray cells. And, that is all, Ushiromiya family-san."

Shw bowed, and sitted in her chair. She seemed to direct that last part of the speech to someone, but to who i wonder? *giggle*
>> No. 6487 edit
"It seems you are a good and smart girl, Erika-san." Kinzo says. "Maybe a miracle saved you from that cruise. Someone in skies probably wants you to live and continue solving more mysteries and helping everyone around you. Be grateful to this, Erika-san. We never know when we will get another oportunity. Now...."

Kinzo turned to his little granddaughters, Maria and Ange. "This dessert was delicious, my kids! Do you want more?" a big smile was drawn on his face.

""Yes, we want, please!""

"Then, Kanon, go get more sweeties for my little granddaughters! Ahahahaha!"

"As you wish, Kinzo-sama." Kanon bows and go to the dinning room's door and open it. "............"

Kanon stopped. He lowers himself, catching something on the floor.

"....? What happened, Kanon-kun?" Shannon asks.

"I found a letter." Kanon looks to the letter and then goes at Kinzo's side, handing to him.

Everyone approach from Kinzo, trying to see the letter.

"Father, what is this?" Krauss asks.

"How the hell I could know, you moron? Let me open this letter first." He says severely. He opens it and throw the envelope on the middle of table. You can see that this letter has an Ushiromiya crest in red wax on it.

"Good evening and welcome to Rokkenjima, Ushiromiya Family.

I am Witch in Gold, Beatrice. I am the famous Witch of the Legend upon Rokkenjima and Witch of the Portrait. I write this letter to all of you for one motive: Ushiromiya Kinzo-sama life.

As all we know, Kinzo-sama has only three months left and soon he will die. Unfortunatly, this is a fact that we can't ignore. Because of this, I decide to break our contract and grip everything is mine by right. All that Kinzo-sama has is mine: The gold, the island, and Kinzo-sama's family. Everything.

However, since I am a fair witch, I am going to give a chance to all of you. In fact, everyone that can read have this opportunity.

Solve my epitaph written in my marble plate inside main hall. If you do this, then I will give everything back to this person, including Ushiromiya Headship.

I expect this can be an ellegant yet intelectual night.

-- Witch of the Portrait, Beatrice."


"......." Kinzo finishes to read Beatrice's letter and gets up from his chair with a tremendous wrath. "WHAT THE HELL IS THIS PIECE OF CRAP!?"

He throw the paper on the middle of the table.

"Father, wait a moment!" Eva tries to calm him down, but Kinzo slap her in her face, making her falls on the floor.

"'WAIT A MOMENT' MY ASS, YOU RECKLESS WOMAN! HOW DARE YOU... HOW DARE YOOOOUU!!" Kinzo shouts at each one of his relatives. "MY OWN SONS AND DAUGHTERS.. TRYING TO INFECT MY BELOVED BEATORICHE'S MEMORY WITH THIS SHITTY LETTER! WHAT DO YOU ALL HAVE IN YOUR HEADS? NOTHING!?

I HAD ENOUGH OF EACH ONE OF YOU! Jessica, go call Genji in the Kitchen. I want you both in my room as fast as you can! I need a private reunion with both of you."

"Yes, Gramps!" Jessica runs away from that place as fast as she can.

"Father." Krauss says. "Let me take part of this reunion too! I beg you!"

"WHAT!? MY EARS FOLLED ME!?" Kinzo gets his own son up from the floor and throws him away.

"Dear!" Natsuhi goes until him. "Are you okay?"

"YOU STUPID FETUS!" Kinzo continuing to shout at Krauss. "DON'T YOU EVEN TRY TO THINK, AM I RIGHT!? I SAID ONLY JESSICA, MY SUCCESOR, AND GENJI, MY LOYAL BUTLER AND FRIEND! OR... DON'T YOU TELL YOU HAVE AN ARGENTIUM RING AND YOU ARE NOW JESSICA?

DON'T TEST ME, KRAUSS!"

Kinzo goes away. But, before this, he turns to you and smiles.

"Have a good stay in my island, Erika-san." and then, Kinzo finally goes away.


Meanwhile, at Kinzo's studio, a woman with fashionable clothes and golden hair is sitting on Kinzo's chair. What she was doing? Just waiting.... Just waiting.

Some moments later, a cyclone of golden butterflies appears, revealing a woman identical to her, but with an old western century clothes.

"I am here, Onee-sama." the woman, but talking like a charming girl, says. "Did I did it..... Well?"

"Yes, my sister." the other woman smiles and, holding her bengal, makes a plate of cookies appear on the table. "Here, for you. You deserve it."

"Aahh!" the girl's eyes shines. "Cookies! Cookies from Onee-sama!"

She took one of them and ate. "*munch**much* It's delicious!"

"Really!? ..... I mean... Of course it is delicious! I am Bea.... I mean... WE are Beatrice! *ahaha.wav*"

"Ahaha!" the girl laughs, happly. "...... Hun! I can't do an ahaha like you!"

"Of course you can't. You are too much cute for do this."

"Hun! ...... Can you teach me?"

"Other hour, maybe. I am feeling Kinzo's presence. We need to disappear."

"Okay, Onee-sama!"

Both disappear in a wave of golden butterflies.

"Everyone, please listen."

Erika rose from her seat with an vicious smile on her face, she started talking to the whole Ushiromiya family in the dining hall.

"It seems that things have taken quite a turn...and i cannot keep myself quiet anymore. I will reveal a few things i learned today, and sugest an different approach to this awkward situation."

Erika sighed, and then she pointed to Ushiromiya Maria.

"Early this evening, i met with Ushiromiya Maria-san. We had an argument, but she revealed a few things to me...Things that will change this conevrsation. She said to me...."She does, she does, she does! I saw her! I saw Beatrice!". By this line, and the behavior she had in that conversation, i can only assume she saw beatrice today, and that cannot be ignored, since we have a life-threat situation here. I suggest someone,any of you, to place Maria-san in a corner and question ehr about this "witch" Beatrice. She, alongside Ange-chan saw beatrice! And furthermore...she preddicted that a horrible crime will occur, following the twilights of the epitaph! Maria-san knows who the culprit is! She must be questioned!

Erika glared at Maria as tough saying "revange"

While they listen to Erika, Hideyoshi helps Eva to get up and Natsuhi do the same with Krauss. Maria and Ange's parents were shocked. Rosa hits the table with her both hands, echoing the sound in all dinning room.

"How dare you! Making an accusation against MY daughter!" Rosa's eyes faced yours, raging like a volcano. "Maria can do a lot of weird things! Magic this... Magic that.... But she never - I repeat - NEVER would be involved in thing like THIS!"

"Ro... Rosa-sama.... " Shannon says, pondering her words. "Calm down, please."

"Shut up, Shannon!" Rosa yelled at her. "This girl is saying something very serious about a child... And, on top of it, MY DAUGHTER! Why should I come down!?"

"Hey, hey, Erika-chan..." Rudolf said, with a juvenile tone. He approached at you, facing you. He smiles, covering his face with a malicious propensity. "What are you implying is very serious."

"He is right, Erika-chan." Kyrie smiles gently, but with a malicious face covered but this gentle smile. She approached at you in Rudolf's opposite side. "An accusation like this, starting from a unknown person, is dangerous. This isn't the best way of thanks."

It seems you pierced a beehive and now the bees want to sting you until you die to poison.

"Well then, Ushiromiya Family. You have here an expert investigator who helped the police solve many mysterious cases. And this detective is telling you that she heard Maria-san saying that she MET with the culprit, and furthermore, she knows the culprit's plan. All of the facts have been thrown in your faces. But, if you all refuse to listen to LOGIC, i really can't do a thing. However, know this: Maria-san KNOW who the culprit is. And she KNOWS that all of you will be murdered according to that epitaph. Now, you can all discuss from who this mysterious letetr came from, resulting in an endless discussion, beacause everyone here has an alibi, OR, you can all question the ONLY person who talked to the killer, Ushiromiya Maria!"

Your cheeks are bright red and you can't breath very well, because your neck is very tight by Rosa's hand. You feel dizzy, without air, no one is trying to help you.... This is way worse than drowning.

"THIS....." She throws you with all her force onto the table. However, you are so dizzy that you can't hold yourself on the table and hit your head on the coner, making your neck blow away and messing all dinning room with your filthy blood making your head bleed a little. You fell, finally, on the floor. "THIS.... IS WHAT I THINK!

Maria, let's go to the Guesthouse!"

"Kihihihi. Sure, Mama."

"Finally, those stupid humans left. I hate so much those humans...", the witch in golden hair and western clothes spoke, reappearing in Kinzo's Room.

"Onee-sama... do you really think is right to us kill these humans according to the epitaph?", another witch arrives at Kinzo's. She is identical to the woman in the portrait of his room, but different from the woman in the parlor's portrait.

"WHO CARES? We need to sacrifice them to be the former Beatrice again. Being only half of me is annoying."

A thunder claps and a lightning strokes the ground. A voice echoes within the room.

"If this is annoying to you, why you just don't give up and die?"

Then, the witch from parlor's portrait arives.

"Ushiromiya Eva?! Did you solved the epitaph?!", the older sister exclaims.

"Of course yes. It's pretty simple. You just have to solve it literally, sacrificing people to became Beatrice and earn the gold!", EVA respond boldly.

"What? They are OUR sacrifices!"

"Not if I could kill them first."

"Hah... a run to see who will finish the Twilights first? Fine. You will perish in agony. BEHOLD THE MIGHT OF BEATRICE SISTERS!", the older sister and the new one leaves.

"That will be fun", EVA laughs and vanishes.
