Monochrome Myst Chapter 03
People's emotion are strong.
At times, the emotion of a wish from the heart, resides in lifeless things as a soul.
As long as that is born from "Good Will" it won't harm humans.
Chapter 03: Bad Will
You want this?
to heat that up?
But what if it is born from "Bad Will"?
Chapter 03: Bad Will
Are you okay, Sylph Rave?
Yeah. I was taking a nap and fell down.
What about school, Angelica?
It's already over.
Ah, // It's already this late..
You didn't get much sleep?
Mm, // Yeah.
The deadline is close..
Hot milk. I made it just now.
I think she wants you to drink it.
Ah. (I see)
Ah, yeah. It's good.
You two are hitting it off quite well.
Really? // She seems to have taken a liking to Alfred though.
That's what I named the cat.
(Just help me)
(Help me this instant)
What about her?
Does she have a name?
Mh? Speaking of, she doesn't.
Because it wasn't necessary?
Just give her one.
A name for a ring?
..Mhm, I'll think about it.
For now, // I'll have a light meal and get back to work.
What is your job?
A "non-selling" one, you see. // I can't live on that alone,
(Searching for food)
so I write small articles or columns.
Actually, I thought that was commonly known.
Didn't you come to me, knowing the rumours?
I... heard some rumours on the streets.
But I don't... have friends who would share rumours...
Aw, I need to fix this too. // I think the rain pipe was broken too.
The doorbell is broken too.
Strange. Is it broken?
This is an urgent sending.
Something's making a ruckus.
Can you fix it?
either way, I'll do it when I'm done with my work.
I think that's the editorial department...
.... He seems busy.
? The living room door is open.
I wonder if someone's here.
Might be the postman.
I'll go take a look.
Good morning, // Sensei!!
How are you today?
Morning... wait, it's already noon....
Sorry, Walter, but you can you pipe it down a bit? (My head is ringing...)
What are you saying. My loud voice is my only outstanding feature! (Hahahaha)
So, how's it going?
You done with the script?
No, // about that..
Ah, // judging by that reaction, I take it's not done yet?
...Mhm, // yeah.
I found you something nice since I knew it would be like this!!
? // Hey, Walter.
By "found", what do you...
Nice material for your script.
You're an "Occult Writer" right.
So I thought some real stuff would give you some ideas.
Huh? // Real stuff!?
It got the authentication from the shop owner!
I always get my stuff done swiftly, so I already send it over to you
so that you'll get it today.
What did you send?
You know, that thing. The rumoured // "Cursed Knife" that will make you want to kill people
once you have it in your hands!!
That brat will die.
I'm being pulled in.
How's it? Isn't it time you surrender yourself to me?
no intention to surrender yet.
What did you do to get such a wound.
To being with, I was called out by a young girl
I get my hopes up and come, but are told to treat you.
Can't you call me for something more tasteful?
What else besides treatment is there to ask of a doctor?
There are quite a few things.
Like take me out for dinner as a thanks.
What's the point in eating together with an old fart?
Don't worry. I don't have any interest in that either.
Besides, I don't get you for living in this place
that's flooded with ghosts.
...When you don't even believe in ghosts.
Of course I don't.
I'm an advocate of reality.
Okay, // I'm done here, Missy.
Please invite me to dinner next time.
Well, watch your health.
That man... ran away.
Ah, the postman.
I doubt he would remember anything if we get back to him.
....? // My editor in charge is a bit of a trouble.
He's about 30% accurate.
Or rather I should say, he's lucky.
He has not the slightest hint of supernatural senses, but he always goes and finds stuff
like "Cursed XY". (And tells me to use it for my scripts)
And 3 of 10 of his finds are actually real stuff.
Specially here at this house,
meddling with "not so good" things brings nothing but trouble.
I always tell him to stop searching though.
That's why the man, who ran away just now,
was getting involved without knowing anything. It was more the doing of the knife...
Can I // come closer now?
Ah, that, huh...
Yeah, it's fine now.
No problem. // Yeah.
I thought you might die...
just like Mom and Dad...
I won't die "yet".
---But I must say
I feel like "the bad spirits" are taking a turn for the worse lately.
This time nothing happened, so it's fine, but---
