Part 33: Episode 31: Discovery (Ending No. 9)
This is the last day I have infirmary duty, as well.
The infirmary is quiet and peaceful as always. The orderly rows of medicine, the neatly-made bed--
Something stinks in here. Its coming from the bed behind the curtains
At the foot of the bed sits a washbasin, its liquid pink, with a stack of scissors coated in blood and feathers in the bottom.
The blood on the bed is still wet
The students who disappeared after going to the infirmary. Yuuya. That mysterious smile the doctor gave when I asked him
I I have to get out of here I have to tell someone !
I need to report it. To the police? Anyway, I need to get away. I need to get out before he--
Youre early today, Miss Lourde.
D-doctor this blood
Oh, forgive me. I just finished dismembering another student, and hadnt cleaned up yet. Please, pay it no mind!
He didnt even try to deny it! He he
I tried to turn the door handle so that I could escape, but
The doors locked !?
Going home so soon?
It wont open
You really have been cutting people up and using them for your experiements ?
Do you really need to ask that?
After all, youve even helped me!
Helped you ? I I would never !
Dont tell me youve forgotten already? Just at the start of this semester you helped me destroy a little evidence.
Then Yuuya? What did you do to Yuuya!?
Oh? I thought youd figured that out already.
Hes in here, Miss Lourde. In here.
The doctor reaches over and lightly strokes my stomach.
It looks like a roast chicken? Or maybe a turkey? Im not sure what people eat on Christmas.
Its still warm! He must have had it delievered in a hurry.
That You cant be No no !
How did he taste? I was worried he might be a little tough I did so regret not having a better bird to send you. It simply wouldnt do to have you throw him out.
That that was Yuuya ?
Aah! Aaaah Thats a beautiful face, Miss Lourde. I have longed so dearly to see that face.
No I just had to come for infirmary duties
Was that really it? You knew I planned to kill you, and yet you came anyway.
...Are you sure you didnt have feelings for me, perhaps?
I want to say it, but my tongue is like lead in my mouth.
Maybe its true. Maybe, somewhere deep inside, I love the doctor
I am afraid that I have room for only one love in my life, and that is research--but it would be cruel to ignore your earnestness. And so I put much thought into how I might reward you.
Just cutting you up would be a terrible pity And I think I want to keep you by my side. Forever.
Hes going to kill me. I know hes going to kill me. So why cant I move?
Why cant I pull my eyes from his?
From the neck down, I shall cut you up and study you thoroughly. Dont worry, you wont go to waste. I will make sure to examine your insides most intimately.
Suddenly, he has a cleaver in his left wing.
You have chased after deaths allure most diligently. I suppose youre too afraid to speak, now ?
