Main Thread http://www.seacats.net/gameboard/res/6952.html

I open this new thread to extend the story of my kakera. The detectives have been split at this point. Because there was no unanimous decision as to how Natsuhi should act, the detectives shall have to split themselves apart, each experiencing a different kakera (which may have different turnouts).

This kakera is that of the detectives who chose to have Natsuhi say nothing. As such, I forbid intervention from any detective who voted for Natsuhi admitting the truth. (I will be continuing that kakera in the first thread)

Therefore, the detectives participating in this kakera will be Ouro and Ozaki

The rules remain the same, let us begin...

Natsuhi remained silent as Gohda silently accepted his fate. However, just as everyone seemed to be crowing in on Gohda, a voice rang out. Everyone in the room spun around to see who had spoken.

"Now now, let's be a little bit more professional about this. It seems we're jumping to conclusions." It was Eva, she was wearing the typical calm, taunting look on her face. "Namely, was it really Gohda who prepared today's lunch? There are a few reason why I think not: 1) Gohda is a professional. He should not have made such an obvious mistake. 2) Gohda did not show up during lunch to describe the dish to us. No matter how busy he was he would still have come out to discuss the meal with us had he been the one to prepare it. 3) The meal was not as exceptional as what I am used to from Gohda. Indeed, I believe this was the least good meal Gohda would have ever made"

Gohda remained completely silent, not even looking at Eva as everyone else had.

"Think about it this way. Why would Gohda not object to being blamed? It could only be to protect the honor of someone else. Who would he do this for? Surely nobody other than the lady he felt so indebted to.... You, Natsuhi!" Eva exclaimed as she closed her fan and pointed it at Natsuhi. "It was you who put the bay leaf in today's lunch! Accident or not it still happened and you are still to blame for today's regrettable events! But I think it wasn't an accident. I think you planned to make it look like an accident! You killed father because it would be convenient for you to have money enough to pay off all of your husband's debts! I'll prove this was no accident and I'll have you both thrown in prison for this!"

The world froze at that moment. The surroundings suddenly cracked as if brittle fragments of glass. They suddenly shattered into a million pieces that all dissipated to speckles of light before hitting the ground. The world reformed itself in a spiral of chaotic violet.

The detectives find themselves in the meta world. They sit in seats around a table. In front of them sits the opponent EVA.

"Shall we begin this battle?" Eva asks as she tauntingly points. "Argue your way out if you can, I'll force you into a corner and prove this could not be the fault of any save for you!"

The victory condition for the detectives is to find a way out. Mitigate as best you can the theories that would make Natsuhi the culprit. That is to say, either prove it is possible Kinzo could have died from some other cause or prove someone besides Natsuhi could have prepared the lunch.

Simple. When Natsuhi went to change out of her clothing, she left the dish alone for at least 30 minutes. Anyone in the mansion could have tampered with the dish during that time.

The way Natsuhi prepared the dish was the way it was served to everyone.

Even if someone tampered with the dish, I have three questions:

Don't care. That red just now stated Natsuhi was the one who made the dish. In other words, Kinzo didn't die from the food in the first place!

Genji went out to get Kinzo a drink after giving the dinner to Kinzo. During that time Kinzo was killed by none other then Kanon and or Shannon, who strangled Kinzo in his very own room.

Nope, I could care less about them. Although if they were personalities then they could always have just died leaving Yasu to commit the crime. In that case the theory above would work.

Regardless, here is a less specific theory.
Someone besides Genji and Kinzo was in the studying during that time.

I'll try coming from another angle.
So Kinzo was served the food just the way Natsuhi served it, but was that how he ate it?
Genji is lying. Kinzo requested that an extra ingredient be added to the dish after he tasted it and found it disgusting, which he then choked on.
>> No. 7023 edit
Yasu has not been on the island during the duration of this kakera

As for your second blue... Who? How? Why?

Kinzo added pepper to the food, which caused the coughing fit
Genji added pepper to the food, which caused the coughing fit

Neither Kinzo nor Genji added anything to the lunch dish.
Pepper was not added to the lunch dish.

Genji simple lied about what happened and killed Kinzo himself. Kinzo and Genji had known each other for a long time, however there was something that was never told. Finally decided to tell Genji, Kinzo told him a secret that he had been hiding.
After learning said secret Genji lost his ever-clam composure and killed Kinzo in a fit or rage. Do to this he had no chance to prepare for a better alibi. However, he realized that he could easily lay the blame on Natsuhi since she was the one who made the dish Kinzo was about to eat.

Have Natsuhi pick up the piece of glass and show it to everyone.

"Notice how there is a shard of glass, but nothing broken in sight? What is missing from this scene? I'll tell you. The glass that Genji was about to supposedly pour a drink into. The glass is no where to be seen. In other words, why? If the glass fell and broke while Kinzo was having a fit, surely it would be left in the mess with all the other objects. So why is it missing?

The answer: that was the murder weapon. Kinzo's drink was poisoned!
In fear of the poison being discovered the culprit or accomplice cleaned up the evidence. However they missed a single tiny fragment, giving themselves away."

At that instant the world began to regain its color. The frozen pieces once again moved. Natsuhi found herself back in the study, face to face with Eva once again.

"Well now, let's hear this theory madame murderess. And don't even think about trying to blame Gohda. If you cannot find a satisfactory answer I'll call the police over right away and have you arrested." Eva taunted.

No matter what numerical system you use, it is always based on either 5s or 10s (in which case the five would be half of the base power). You can find this in any sort of numerals, from Roman to Arabic. The reason why numbers are always based on powers of five or ten is because of a person's digits. You have five fingers on each hand.

A loud sound fills the room. Before Natsuhi even has time to react, she is overcome with a sharp, searing pain in the back of her torso. Being so close to the truth, it is tragic that Natsuhi can only fall to the ground. She cannot even muster the strength to turn around to see who her assailant is. It is not but the greatest irony that she can only confirm the innocence of a single person, Eva who was in front of her the entire time.

As it turns out, CYOA stories have good ends and bad ends...
