Monochrome Myst Chapter 04
You can admit all your sins here.
Lay them open before the Lord. // If you admit your own wrongdoing
your sins will be erased // and your soul shall be saved.
Now, pray to the Lord.
I killed someone.
And not just one. // I killed a lot.
I'm still killing people right now.
Chapter 04: A curious soul
It's that girl.
I heard she skilled her own parents with a "curse".
Eh? Is that true?
Who knows? But they say you're going to get it bad when you're mean to her.
I also heard a rumour that she brings a black cat with her.
I'm sure she's a witch. "A cursing black witch".
Do you have a moment,
Miss "cursing black witch"?
Late! She's too late!
Normally she would be home by now.
But she's still not back...
Maybe something happened to her?
Alfred! You're too noisy,
You aren't worried that Angie isn't back yet!?
How late is she?
If you're that worried
then just tag along with her to school like usual!!
Don't be stupid! School is a place where a lot of humans gather!
Angie got that weird rumour about her because someone like you saw me!!
Oh... You're aware that you're the reason for it.
Ah? Are you making fun of me? Hey. // UGG
Sylph Rave, do something about her!!
("Something"...She likes you, what's wrong with that?)
Besides, she's your ring...
Look!! I told you! Angie is being bothered by someone without a clue.
? // Isn't that a classmate?
Where do you have your eyes!?
Just open up here!
What do you have in mind?
I'll jump down from here and save Angie!!
Idiot! Did you forget that you're made out of ceramic?
If you jump down from here, you'll just smash in pieces.
Whatever, let me go!
Ah... well, I'm sorry.
My hand slipped when I wanted to water the plants by the window.
I don't see any plants.
Aren't you just lacking your common sense as an adult?
I can't tell her "My ring did that"...
I got someone else, who looks even more knowledgeable.
Ehm, you're Angelica's friend, right?
And we just go to the same school. We're not really friends. // By the way,
do you really live here?
It's quite the dump.
And you're living together with him...
Just what is the relationship between you two?
Well, something on the lines of relatives?
....Well, not that I care.
Ehm, it seems you two were in a heated discussion down there. Were you fighting?
Nope. // She just won't answer my question at all.
So I followed her all the way here.
Isn't that so?
Miss "cursing black witch"?
"Cursing black with"?
That's her nickname at school.
They say you'll be cursed if you're mean to her.
It's just a rumour.
Reminds me, isn't there a rumour about you too?
I think it was: "Occult Freak".
Isn't that simplifying it too much and changing the meaning!?
I don't care.
That's what rumours are anyway. Worrying about that is just stupid.
More importantly,. there is something I would like to ask you.
I told you, she won't answer me.
So will you tell me in her stead?
About the lifeless and dim
"Black Fog" that accumulates in dark places
and entraps people.
Are you in pain?
I went... to the church just now.
I want to put an end to this already.
No! If you stop, you'll
*COUGH* // *COUGH*
I already found the next one.
If that girl vanishes
nobody's going to notice.
You don't need to worry about anything.
It'll be fine.
I'll protect you.
