Chapter VI 6 - The Man Who Turned To Stone

130)
1: Journalist
2: Pharmacist
3: Banker
4: Real Estate Manager
5: Lawyer...
6: 5 Men gathered in a single building by Alma...

131)
1: While their occupations differ, they all share a love for the occult.
2: And tonight, Alma is hosting a playful evening of "100 Tales."
3: She had a certain reason for this, however...
4: Which four out of the five men did not notice...

132)
1: "100 Tales" is a Japanese game where a group of people take turns telling creepy stories until they reach the 100th,
2: where it is said that a real creature of the night will appear.
3: This instance of the game had reached its climax. Everyone was quite tired, but the candles that kept getting put out one by one was so unnerving it had managed to keep up the atmosphere...

133)
1: ...the end...
2: Seriously, the curses of cats are truly things to be feared...
3(2b): I see...that was really a ghastly story...
4: There goes the 98th...
5: Next, it's your turn.
6: Haah...
7: Well, now that you mention it...
8: It really embarrasses me to say this, but I'm all out of stories...

134)
1: Would someone mind telling one in my place?
2: The truth is, I already went through all the stories I had prepared too...
3: I guess...
4: even for occult-lovers like us, getting to 100 with only 6 people proved too difficult a task.
5: We're so close, though...
6: Only two left...
7: Mmmm...

135)
1: Alright then, I'll go...
2: This was a special story I saved for the end. It's based on reality...
3: I was 26 at the time...
4: It was my dream to become a lawyer...

136)
1(2b): Since I came from a poor family who couldn't afford to send me much allowance, I had to work during the day to save up for my education fees...all my other free time was spent studying for the bar exam.

137)
1: Then, one day...
2: Yo!
3: So we meet again...
4: I really hate this guy...
5: That was the genuine thought that ran through my mind at that moment.

138)
1(2b): What's that? You live around here?
2: His name was Ooba Toshio...a struggling scriptwriter...
3: When did you move here?
4: He was a friend of mine in college, but by this point I had already cut my ties with him.
5: He was so lazy, and was so conceited, and thought he was so cool...he really got on my nerves...
6: He was the kind of guy who seemed determined to leave some sort of wound in my heart every time we met.
7(2b): Ohh! That looks like a nice apartment.

139)
1(2b): Anything good in here? I'm so thirsty...
2: Oh! Beer!
3: Shameless as always...
4: Puhaaaaah!
5(2b): He really made it seem like a coincidence...but it's clear that he came here for a certain reason...
6: What could it be...?
7(2b): Is he in debt? Then he's got the wrong house.
8: Hmmm...
9: You really are something.
10: How many times will you have to fail to understand?
11: You just got out of college, and you still want to take exams...?
12: Those guts are about the only good quality you've got.
13: Is that all you came here to say...?

140)
1: What, you trying to start a fight?
2: You think *I* am?!
3: I'm not like you!
4(3b): This time for sure...I absolutely have to pass this exam! Not only for myself...but for my parents, who have allowed me this selfishness for so long...
5: I don't have the time to listen to your sarcasm...
6: How petty...
7(2b): So what about your parents? You really want to make it big that badly?
8: Sometimes you just gotta cut loose and go with the flow.
9(2b): Alcohol, women...it'll change your worldview.
10: Would you mind leaving...?
11(2b): Sheesh...so it won't help no matter what I say, eh?

141)
1: Of all things, however, I can't believe you'd have the gall to make me sound like some good-for-nothing...
2: If you think I've just been mulling around on the edge of the movie biz this whole time, you're in for a big surprise!
3: When the times comes, I know how to make ends meet!
4(2b): Check this out! The script I'm working on right now might be bought by a sponsor!
5: This is his deposit money!
6: So you didn't come to ask for money...
7: This is what I'm talkin' about!
8: Who you trying to kid, man?!
9: Hey, how about it? Let's go hit up the town with this money tonight!
10: We'll go ALLLL out...
11: The exam was drawing ever closer, and I needed cash.
12(2b): With my salary from being a lathe operator, however, I was just barely able to survive. I was the one who was in debt.

142)
1(3b): Even if I ask you like this? We need to watch out for each other when we're in trouble, right? I promise I'll pay it right back when the exam's finished!
2: No way...
3: If you want money to go play around with me, then I'll think about it...
4: But I refuse to take part in building your road to success...
5: I thought we were friends...
6(2b): I'm shocked...when I met you back there,
7: you were clearly making an unpleasant face. I didn't expect to hear that line from you...
8: Makes me wanna puke...

143)
1: But it's true that I do owe you something.
2: Here!
3: You can pay me back without interest once you hit it big.
4: So you better work hard and pass that exam, alright?
5: Heheheh...
6: Oobaaaa!

146)
1: He's dead...
2: It's all over...
3: Over...
4: I'm finished!

147)
1: Kukuku...
2: Haha...
3: No way!
4: I'll never let it happen...
5: There's no way I'm sacrificing my life all for the sake of that rotten piece of shit...how could I stand to let such a ridiculous thing happen?!
6: I should just think of this as training...
7: That's it...
8: Lawyer training...
9: Valuable training where I can actually experience the psychology of a criminal...
10: Fufu...

148)
top sfx: *saw saw*
1: Luckily, there shouldn't have been anyone who knew about the relationship I had with Ooba...and with the way he was, it wouldn't have been strange for him to suddenly disappear...
2: A murder case without a corpse...judging from past examples, cases in where it's hard to come up with any evidence usually end up with nonprosecution...

149)
1: So it's all a matter of how expertly I dispose of the corpse...

151)
1: Haa haa
2: Haa..
3: Strangely enough, everything went fine for me after that.
4: I passed the bar exam, finishing two years of training, and started up my own practice by the end of my third year.
5(2b): Everything went along so smoothly that it actually felt a bit creepy. Like there was some huge pitfall awaiting me somewhere...
6: At the least, though, there were no investigations made about Ooba after the event, and it appeared that his whereabouts had been left as unknown...

152)
1: Lawyer Office
2: Good morning!
3: Morning.
4: Huh?!

153)
1: Hey...what's this red stain from?
2: I dunno...
3: I didn't even notice it until now...
4: It must be mold. Ewww...
5: This isn't mold.
6: Then what is it?
7: Who knows...it's like the concrete itself is stained.
8(2b): How can that be...it's been getting bigger in the past few days.
9: Anyway, what do you say we just repaint this spot?

154)
1: Nnnnn...
2: Uuu?!
3(2b): This is so weird...we painted right over it...!!

155)
1: Yo!
2: So we meet again...
3: What a coincidence...
4(2b): I've been here for five years, but...I never thought I'd meet you again here, of all places.
5(2b): My body was smashed to bits and turned into concrete, but...I don't hate you for it...
6(2b): It's nice and cool here, it feels good. Like finally finding a nice place to rest.

156)
1: Except it's really boring.
2(2b): Shut up! Shut up!!
3(2b): Hey, hey, that's uncalled for. We're friends, aren't we...?
4: By the way, I have a favor to ask.
5: I was never able to finish my script, and it's really been bugging me.
6: It's my finest work, so I want to make it complete...
7: I can't even hold a pen now, as I'm sure you can see...
8(2b): I'll forget about the money I lent you. So in return...
9: Give me your right hand!
10: Uuuu!

157)
1: Uwaaaahhh...?!

158)
1: Ummm, excuse me, but...
2: Your right hand...
3: No! It's not like we think you actually killed someone, it's just...
4: Fufufu...does it bother you?
5: Then see for yourselves...

159)
1: Ohhh!
2: P-phew!
3: Haha...give another point to that fellow...
4: That story sounded so real.
5: Now then...
6: It looks like we're down...
7: to today's finale, Alma-san...
8: Then we'll finally be able to see if that old saying about "100 Tales" is true or not...
9: Fufufu...
10: Whether a real creature of the night will appear or not...
11: Before that, let's take a coffee break.
12: Good idea!
13: It's 5 AM on the dot...
14: Almost time for morning to come...

160)
1: Shall we begin, then?
2: I...
3(2b): The truth about myself is...I've kept it hidden until now, but I am actually a witch.
4: And...?

161)
1: The end.
2: What?!
3: Oh, come on...
4(2b): That's not even a story...you can't expect us to laugh at a joke like that this late in the game!
5: Then what do I need to do to get you to believe that I am a witch...?
6: Hahaha...well, to be honest...
7: I can't even believe that witches actually exist!
8: Haven't you seen them on TV before?
9(3b): They ride around on brooms, disappear into thin air...transform into animals...
10: Then...
11: How about this?!

162)
1: Uwaaahh?!
2: Fufufu...

164)
1: Gyaaaaaahhh!!
2: A-a monsterrrr!!
3: He
4: He he...
5: Heeeelp!
6: Uuuu...
7: Look into my eyes!

165)
1: Huh?!
2: Gyaaaahhh!
3(2b): H...help me...

166)
1: Sorry for frightening you.
2: You all just saw a hallucination due to group hypnosis.
3: I put a drug that would make it easier for you all to fall under into the coffee you just drank.
4: Is he...dead?
5: No...merely sleeping.

167)
1: Still, though...
2: Speaking about one's own crime as if it was a piece of entertainment, feeling no qualms about revealing one's evil deeds, is the pinnacle of arrogance...
3: All I really wanted was a clue...
4: His pride dug his own grave for him.
5: What do you intend to do with him?
6: Ooba-san...
7: Revenge for my son...
8: I should hate his killer enough to kill him myself, but my son is also at fault...
9: I should simply leave it up to the police and pray for a fair trail, but...
10: Just as he said, it will be hard to come up with any evidence now...

168)
1: Would you be alright with him turning himself in?
2: Well, of course...
3: But...how could we ever get him to admit to his own crime...
4: Fufu...
5: Did you forget about my hypnosis...?
