Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc

by FPzero

Part 111: Trial 4, Part 10

A voice... I could hear a voice...

???: ...wa...


???: ...

???: ...wake up...

: ...Huh?

The voice dragged me from deep slumber into hazy half-consciousness. My eyelids were like lead.

: Kyoko...?
: Yes, it's me.
: Huh...? Kyoko?
: I said yes...
: So Kyoko's here... Wait, what!?

In a flash I was wide awake.

: Wh-What are you doing here!?

: I'm here to wake you up.
: Oh, I see... Wait, but my door--!
: It was unlocked. You're unbelievably careless.
: It was unlocked!? Are you serious!?

: Always. And you don't have to overreact like that every time you're surprised.
: Wh-What time is it...?
: 3 o'clock. In the morning, of course.

It's 3 a.m.!? Why was Kyoko waking me up at this hour...?

: I-It's so late... What happened...?
: I have a [favor] I need to ask...

> favor

: What's your favor...?
: Remember what Sakura said at the end of her note? I'm not going to just lay down and die. I *will* fight you... I want to find out what she meant by that.
: Okay, do you plan to do that?

THen Kyoko put her lips next to my ear and whispered...

: The data center on the 4th floor.
: ...What?
: I'll meet you there. *leaves*

Without another word, she was gone...

: What the...?

Her words reverberated through my half-dazed head. The data center...? But I thought it was locked...

I made my way into the after-hours school, and headed for the data center on the 4th floor.

Eventually, I wound up at the data center. But when I arrived...

: Kyoko's...not here. That's weird. She said she'd meet me. Is she maybe inside already...?

I put my hand to the door, and with a certain amount of force...

*Rattle rattle*

...It didn't open. I tried again, but...

*Rattle rattle*

: It must be locked.

What was it Kyoko said...? The data center on the 4th floor...

: Oh-ho! What are you doing up, mister!?
: Gah!
: Breaking into a locked room is incredibly prohibited, don'tcha know?
: Oh, well, I just...
: You're trying to tell me you didn't actually bust in yet, right? But...

: ...I can see that, ya dolt! Don't waste my time telling me crap I can see for myself!
: It looked like you might break in any second, so I just thought I'd give you a friendly reminder. Or...are you gonna try and tell me you were sleepwalking or something...?
: N-No, nothing like that...
: It's 3 o'clock in the morning, for cryin' out loud! Even *I* get tired, ya know!? Stop being weird and go back to bed!

Music cuts out.

???: ...What's wrong now?

: Why are you out here making a racket?
: K-Kyoko!?
: Ngggrrrhhh! Now you, too!?
: Whatever! The two of you, just get back to bed! I'm positively exhausted from the class trial!

: ...Sure, you got it. Come on, Makoto. Let's head back.
: What...?
: Didn't you hear me? We're leaving.
: I have no idea what's going on anymore...
: Don't worry about it. Let's just go.
: O-Okay...
: Yeah! YEAH! Go on, get outta here! Shoo! Shoo!

So we left and went back to our rooms...

And then...

: So. Goodbye.
: H-Hold on!
: ...
: Listen, what was all that about just now?

She woke me up, made me go to the data center--which just so happened to be locked...! And then she shows up late, and we leave without checking a single thing! What was the point of all that?

: ...Don't worry about it.

I figured that would be the end of our conversation, just like always, but...

: Well then...goodnight.
: S-Sure...

And then *that* was over.

But as I turned to leave...

(BG Music)

: Mukuro Ikusaba.
: What...?

Kyoko was right next to me once again, whispering into my ear...

: Mukuro Ikusaba... The sixteenth student, lying hidden somewhere in this school... The one they call the Ultimate Despair...

: Watch out for her.
