Chapter 5: Night tales of the Mountain
Tenome: I am the Hand's eye. A lot of things have happened, and now I'm stuck in the mountains in the middle of the night sitting on a bag of rice.
If I were to tell the story, it'd be pretty long, so please don't ask why.
Although you look like you have a story too, young master.
It's okay if you don't say anything.
Tenome: I can see right through you anyway.
You were walking around in the mountains and now you must be tired.
Come sit by the fire.
THEY've already come...
Tenome: They're children who were abandoned on this mountain long ago to reduce the number of mouths to feed in their village.
That's all in the past, but it was really only a few years ago.
No, I suppose even now, if a village is poor enough they still expose children and old women.
They died starving, so if you give them even uncooked rice, they'll gladly eat it.
Don't be scared. They won't do anything bad.
Hey, you kids!
You were here earlier, right? When you get something, you ought to say thanks!
Tenome: Show the young master your performance too!
Tenome: Haha, that's right. Very good!
Tenome: Hm? Ah... This young gentleman?
That honorable young man botched his attempt to die in a lover's suicide.
Tenome: Oh, you guys, it's the ocean! You did a good job for never having seen it.
The dragon is handsomely done too.
What's wrong, young master? These brats have worked really hard at this show. At least give a little applause.
The marriage that your parents refused... you two thought you could succeed in the other world. You would elope with your beloved in a double suicide.
"Let us die in beauty" "Yes, my darling"
Tenome: Out of idle curiousity, you pressed into the heart of the mountains.
The two of you, happy together, jumped off a cliff, and that was that, but...
For better or for worse, the young master alone was left alive.
Tenome: His beloved was in a terrible state.
Finally coming to your senses after a hundred years of love, you fled.
You wandered in the mountains
Tenome: And after a long struggle, you finally made it to this performance.
So, kids, why don't you try something that better suits the young master's mood?
Tenome: What kind of shape are you making?
Don't play sick jokes!
Wakadanna: WAH! WAAAAAAHH!!!
わあ！ わあ！ わあああ！！
Tenome: Hey, wait up, young master!
That's not the real thing!
It's just the kids' practical joke.
There's nothing to be afraid of!
It was just the illusion of a woman. Even though there was nothing to fear...
I guess he was afraid of women when he was alive.
Aah, the night's already getting a little brighter.
