7:50 PM

Ozaki arrives at the school with barely any time to spare. Kanamori had instructed them to meet inside Class 1-A, so it would be best if Ozaki went straight there.

Ozaki goes straight to the classroom.

Inside he finds:

Marie Moriya
Takeshi Nonomiya
Yoko Numata
Michiru Sakurada
Tomoko Okada
Yuuki Noda
Aya Souma
Masaaki Yoshikawa
Yukari Sakaki
Reiko Osumi
Hikaru Nihei
Midori Kusunoki
Shuichi Arimori

...Also inside are both Kanamori and the Nurse.
The kids seem to be talking to each other, introducing themselves. Kanamori approaches Ozaki.

"Oh, just in time! It's 8:00, just as we planned. Do you think any other students will be coming?"
>> No. 9142 edit
File 13083791693.png - (65.07KB , 347x480 , ozaki_defa2.png )

>> No. 9143 edit
File 135676064558.png - (298.81KB , 640x480 , kyou_02bn.png )
"Alright! I believe everyone has already introduced themselves. Welcome to the Mystery-Solving Club! Tonight we shall do our best to solve the school's Eight Mysteries!"

Michiru stands up.

"Sensei. I know not everyone may believe me... but I believe I have a sixth sense. If there's anything I can do to help, please tell me!"
>> No. 9144 edit
File 135676071425.png - (52.25KB , 640x480 , kyou_03n.png )
Suddenly the other students become interested in what Michiru has to say.

"...I believe I can talk to the Youkai. What does everyone think? Should I try contacting them?"
>> No. 9145 edit
File 13083791693.png - (65.07KB , 347x480 , ozaki_defa2.png )
After hearing other people's responses I add my thoughts.

"Although we are trying to provide realistic answers to these mysteries there shouldn't be any harm in trying. Give it your best shot."
>> No. 9146 edit
File 135676137244.png - (161.19KB , 500x480 , mic_def3.png )


The rest of the students agree with Ozaki's opinion.

"...Right. Well, here I go..."

Michiru closes her eyes and whispers a few words under her breath. The whole room focuses intently on her.

"...Are any Youkai here tonight? Please, come out and show yourselves!"

Everyone waits...
>> No. 9147 edit
File 13567616083.png - (269.74KB , 640x480 , kyou_06na.png )


"What?!" Michiru breaks out of her trance.

"You thought just closing your eyes and saying a few words would do something? I was expecting something better than this."

"See, I knew you wouldn't believe me! And you interrupted it! So now it won't work!"

"...You were relying on someone to interrupt you anyway. That way you could just blame the failure on them."

It seems these two are getting into an argument. Will Ozaki intervene, or let it progress?

"Devil's Proof..."

I intervene

"When it comes down to it, not just this discussion but everything to do with the supernatural breaks down to one without evidence. When a claim has no evidence to prove itself, the adjacent claim follows suit. Youkai exist; Youkai do not exist."

I stand up

"Although this club is stationed around the whole idea of this devil's proof I do not want to see an ugly displace of emotions. Both sides have presented their claims whether direct or not. With the devil's proof one would say both are equal.
However the supernatural side has the hardest time, as it can only be proven by showing something impossible by humans means. However at the same time it is in the clear without any evidence due to the devil's proof. This was an excellent example."

"Anyway, this introduction is being apply directly to the main purpose of the club. When solving mysteries you must have an open mind. With these Eight Mysteries of the school you will have to keep an open mind for both sides to come to a perfect conclusion."

"Spoken like a true science teacher, Ozaki! If the club members can't respect different points of view, then this won't be very productive at all. So why don't we do a little team-building activity?"

...A classic example of good teaching practices, the Nurse seems to know what she's doing. She suggests that the larger group is divided into three groups.

"You see, the less people in a group, the stronger the bonds become. And competition among the groups would give them motivation to do well, strengthening their bonds further."

Kanamori interrupts. "The only problem is who would go with who. Should we let them choose, or should we decide for them? Ozaki?"
>> No. 9150 edit
File 130854339985.png - (65.08KB , 347x480 , ozaki_defa1.png )
I say we split the students up and I suggest the teams as such:

Marie Moriya
Michiru Sakurada
Tomoko Okada
Souma Aya

Takeshi Nonomiya
Yoko Numata
Masaaki Yoshikawa
Nihei Hikaru

Osumi Reiko
Sakaki Yukari
Yuuki Noda
Kusunoki Midori
Arimori Shuichi

"Seems either way one group will have an extra. Not much we can do about that."
>> No. 9151 edit
File 135676011696.png - (173.71KB , 640x480 , kyou_01nk.png )
"That seems fine to me..."

The Nurse chimes in. "Although, if I were to make one change, I would switch Aya and Yukari."

Kanamori continues. "Very well. You can take Marie's team, Ozaki will take Takeshi's team, and I'll take the last team."

All of the students get into their assigned teams. Kanamori then explains what is next:

"We'll section off our teams into the three classrooms on this floor. After an hour, we will regroup, and the team with the best explanation for one of the Eight mysteries gets a prize."
>> No. 9152 edit
File 135691157384.png - (298.91KB , 1109x480 , ozakis_room.png )

The students all agree to Kanamori's plan.

Thus, the two other teams leave, and Ozaki remains in this room with Hikaru, Takeshi, Yoko, and Masaaki.

The first thing the team needs to pick is one of the Eight Mysteries to solve. What will they decide upon?
>> No. 9153 edit

Masaaki: "I don't really know much about the mysteries here. I came here to learn more."

Takeshi: "I suggest the mystery of Uuu-san. I wrote about it in a news article, and it seemed interesting."

Yoko: "I'll go with Takeshi's idea."

Hikaru: "Uuu-san? That's a dumb mystery. The mystery of the music room's youkai is much more interesting! Haven't you heard about it?"
>> No. 9155 edit

Hikaru explains. "Supposedly anyone who enters the music room at night and stays too long, might hear the sounds of clicking castanets. And when they turn to look where they came from, they see a cloaked figure of a youkai, growing an growing, until they realize -- the youkai wasn't growing -- they are shrinking! And the sounds of castanets were merely the chattering of their teeth... their rabbit teeth! How do you think we got so many rabbits in our rabbit pen?! All of the misbehaving students ended up there!"
>> No. 9157 edit

"Female students reported hearing cries of "uuu" in the bathroom. So people began to think it was a youkai, who was dubbed 'Uuu-san'. Later, Goldbar-sensei confessed to killing Maria in that very bathroom, and that Uuu-san had taken his own life. Ever since, I think all the girls were afraid to use that bathroom, fearing Uuu-san, or any other spirits in there..."

Yoko nods her head.

"I see I see. Let me ask both of you then what you believe the truth of these events are. You both seems to have thought about it more than normal so we can pick which we will investigate based on your theories. If we have enough time we may be able to investigate more than one."

Hikaru: "I have no idea what would be happening to the students who go missing... But the simplest solution is that the rabbits are normal rabbits, reproducing at a normal rate. You know rabbits have a high libido, right?"

Takeshi: "As for Uuu-san, any female could be imitating the "uuu" sound. But that would also mean it was a human who killed Kinjo, not a youkai... I don't know who would want to kill such a nice teacher, even if he had a bad reputation. It's weird thinking about it, as I never would've thought he was that kind of guy..."

"Well then. With these theories it would leave the rabbit mystery solved while the uuu mystery asking even more questions.

For now let's head to the music room and we can take a look around. We can wait in the room to see if anything happens while we continue to talk about the uuu mystery.

Everyone agrees, and the team heads to the music room.

Masaaki restarts the conversation: "...So, what would a human have to gain from killing Goldbar-sensei? I could understand if it was Maria's ghost taking revenge, but a human?"

I walk around the room looking are various instruments.

"Money, revenge, fear, love, hate, or beneficence. If it was a human who killed Goldbar I can see many possibilities open before me. The question is figuring out which one it would be...

Actually, Takeshi you said you investigated this mystery right? Did you also investigate Goldbar's history by any chance?
>> No. 9164 edit
File 135691639064.png - (165.81KB , 500x480 , non_def4a.png )
There are all kinds of instruments here. Drums, violins, tubas, trumpets, flutes, cellos, pianos, tamborines, acoustic guitars... and castanets.

"Ah, well if you read my article I did mention something about his history... Immediately after the Uuu-san incident, other kids came out to protest against him. ...It might be an invasion of privacy to tell you the details, as the kids are in the other groups, and I would feel bad talking about them."

Hikaru interjects. "Did anyone tell you about the things he did to the rabbits?"

Takeshi shakes his head. "Huh?! You mean that's what happened to the rabbits?! I'll have to write about that next!"

Takeshi begins writing into a pocket-sized journal as Yoko closes her eyes and holds her mouth.

"Actually I was wondering if you knew anything from before he arrived at the school. After all if it was a human they could have wanted revenge and just sneaked into the school and left after Goldbar was killed.

Oh and while we are talking about it. I was meaning to ask about that rabbit case. How exactly do you know Goldbar did it Hikaru? I would ask about the actual incident however it would be best to leave out those details for now."

I indicate to Yoko with the last sentence.

Takeshi: "I don't know too much. But I know that a few years ago he got caught up in some twisted mass murder. It was all over the news... Maybe someone from back then wanted to kill him now? Did they escape prison?"

Hikaru: "...Anyway, I have no proof Goldbar-sensei used those rabbits other than my own experiences in biology class. He dissected our rabbits, and I know he took them home with him!"

I play the first few lines of Moonlight Sonata on the piano while continuing to talk.

"Oh I think I heard about that incident. I believe the culprit received capital punishment for the crime, so it's unlikely they were the ones who did it. Which leaves even more questions.

Hmm... So you witnessed him taking the rabbits home then? Or found some other evidence?"

"...I think I know why." Masaaki says.

He points to the sign above the doorway. It's blank.

"The only reason I can think a youkai wouldn't show up here... is because this isn't the music room. Wherever they put the label for 'music room' must be the music room! It's total BS in my opinion, but that's gotta be it!"
>> No. 9173 edit
File 13083791693.png - (65.07KB , 347x480 , ozaki_defa2.png )
"So the sign is missing? That's odd."

I click the castanets in my hand. I then go over to the sign and give it a wipe in case the words are simply being covered. I then check to see how one would remove the sign.

"Still, with all the music instruments in this room one would have no other option to assume this is a music room."
>> No. 9175 edit
File 135692189433.png - (166.37KB , 500x480 , non_def7.png )
The sign isn't simply wiped. It's a totally blank sign. One would remove it like taking something off a hook. It's relatively easy for anyone to do.

"That is odd. I guess our work is done here, then?"

"Looks that way. Should we regroup with the others or go investigate the uuu-san mystery?"

The sign was there this morning, but was no longer there at night.

Looking at a nearby clock, you answer your own question. It's 9:15, so there really isn't enough time to do any more investigating before everyone regroups. Thus, you decide to return to the classroom, and your students follow.

Only a few more minutes pass by, and the Nurse suddenly enters Ozaki's classroom in a hurry.

"Ah, Ozaki-san! I need you to come with me. Kanamori had gone to the bathroom earlier, and the students in his classroom are all wondering what's taking him so long to come back. But I don't have a key to unlock the door. If only my Nurse's Key was as good as a Teacher's Key...! Well, thank God you're here."

"Oh so you already tried to go get him but the door was locked? That's odd, we might as well go get him.

You kids stay here while Nurse and I go get Kanamori."

I leave with the nurse however don't go straight to the bathroom. As we walk through the hallway I start talking with her.

"Hey before we go to the bathroom lets check the staff room. Before the club started tonight he was talking about leaving something in the staff room so he may have simply decided to go get it."

There is nothing behind the door. There seems to be a dark red substance on the dimly-lit floor, trailing into... no, out of one of the stalls. The mirrors and sinks seem normal although somewhat dirty. There are also some urinals opposite the stalls.

Ozaki opens each stall one by one...

...Upon pushing the door open, Ozaki finds the corpse of Yoshihito Kanamori, lying on the cold tile floor. His face had been completely mutilated beyond recognition. Only his clothes indicated he was Kanamori.

After witnessing this, the Nurse closes her eyes and lets out a terrifying scream. The world freezes and time stops. Ozaki should know what to do here.

There are three stalls, five urinals. A dark red blood trails out of Kanamori's stall into the center of the room (his stall being the middle one). There are also three windows, positioned close to the ceiling and opposite the stalls. As previously mentioned the sinks and mirrors (three of each) are rather grimy, as is the rest of the bathroom.

In the one stall that hasn't been checked yet, on the toilet paper dispenser sits a metal key with "KANAMORI" written on it.

There are various scribblings in the stalls, but they all seem to be typical toilet humor jokes.

The urinals are all rather dirty. Nothing unusual about them or inside them.

I check the lock on the main door. How it functions. I also check the hinges and back sides of each door in the room.

The main door has a deadbolt lock. The hinges and back sides are fully intact, including each stall's doors.

The ceiling has nothing unusual on it. The lights flicker on and off repeatedly, telling their age.

All three toilets look incredibly filthy and are disgusting to look at. They are the old-fashioned Japanese-style squatting toilets. Despite being relatively easy to clean, the condition of the toilets show that no one has cleaned them in ages. The stall Kanamori was found in also contains a faint stench of human waste. Ultimately, nothing is found in either the bowls or the tanks aside from putrid filth.

"You see when Nurse and I entered the room neither of us touched the inside door. The reason for that being because I had opened it all the way and then it closed automatically due to the mechanics. Seeing how Kanamori was found, plus where the blood lay shows us that he didn't have a chance to leave this room either.

Now, because of all the filth in the room it is safe to say that nobody has recently entered here until tonight. Which naturally would mean the doorstop hasn't been used either.
In other words this means that the inside handle of the door could have only been touched by someone else who had entered this room before us!"

I go over to the bodies and start to investigate them again this time more thoroughly.

Aya was an athlete, a runner at that. Her muscular tone around certain muscles of the lower calf and thighs would be rather distinct. Using this I check the body with Aya's clothing to confirm.

Shuichi was a pianist. As everyone knows they use their hands to the utmost extent and develop the muscles to stretch the distances needed to play the spaced keys. Not to mention people will small hands are discouraged from even playing the piano on a level such as his so they tend to have wider hands. I check the body with Shuichi's clothing to confirm.

Reiko was a victim of harassment and bullying. She is bound to have marks on her body from this. Not to mention I witnessed her get hurt so I should know where that newest wound is excluding the one on her face since it's destroyed. The one where she fell down and his the desk. Common bullying tactics include placing thumbtacks onto chairs or inside the shoe of the victim. She will most likely have old scars there as well. I check the body with Reiko's clothing to confirm.

I have nothing on Midori. I did see her dancing for the play or something similar however that wouldn't be enough to determine just from the naked eye. I doubt the play would be so fancy for her to have pin marks from getting fitted but I check the body regardless.

Yuuki was probably the model for the WIP I studied in great detail. I check the body and confirm from my memory of the sculpture.

"Undressing little kids, and dead ones at that? I thought that Kinjo guy was bad, but this takes the cake!"

The doll-like girl giggles as Ozaki gathers his information:

-Aya's corpse does indeed have muscles of the calf and thighs distinct to a track athlete.
-Shuichi's corpse does indeed have wider hands.
-Reiko's corpse does indeed have a scar where she hit the desk.
-Midori's corpse does indeed have pin marks from getting fitted for the play.

The recent death of Kinjo made me a little cautious even hosting this club at such a late time, but that was Kanamori's idea.

"Yes, sensei! It is an ancient technique passed down throughout my family! My family comes from a long line of Shinto priests, you see! But that isn't how I got my psychic powers! In any case, the ritual itself goes as such: for four people, each of them should stand in the four corners of the room! They then, in turns, speak each syllable from the Hiragana! Upon finishing this, each person must throw salt over their shoulders five times, and if anyone accidentally throws pepper, everyone has to start over! The next step is picking up each grain of salt you just dropped! And if you dropped any pepper, you must lick it off the ground! The challenging part is the next step: each person must then clap their hands together in unison and shout 'OH DESIRE!' and simultaneously sacrifice four sheep to the youkai!

All the girls had a fun time playing with it just as I did. Looking at the way it's constructed, they reasoned that someone could tie some strings to it like a marionette puppet. Since it would be night time, no one would see the strings, and from a far enough distance even a small doll could be misinterpreted as a life-size creature. It's a very nice theory, and upon coming to that conclusion, we left the room."

Suddenly, halfway down the stairs (on the second floor), Takeshi and Yoko tumble downward, hitting both their heads on the staircase. They land on their stomachs, unconscious.

The group hadn't walked in a straight line, so it can't simply be stated as 'who was in front of who'. Rather, it had been a cluster of people...

However, going down a staircase requires at least some uniformity. Everyone confirms that they did not see either Takeshi or Yoko in front of them until the two were tumbling down the stairs. One could then conclude that the two were in the very back of the group.
