Part 95: Episode 87: Confrontation
Isnt Yuuya with you? We never got him to answer anything
I do not know. He ran in the opposite direction.
Hmm We dont have much time left. I think the only thing to do is get him to talk to us and then confront the doctor.
Hes been helping us this whole time, but I dont know if we can still consider him our ally.
Our ally Indeed.
Youve always been separated, right?
So, you dont really know how he usually acts, or if hed be likely to do something like this, or--
Im an only child, so I dont really understand siblings, but I think I know how you feel about him, Sakuya.
Do not make me repeat myself. He and I have no connection.
I want to believe that he is not my enemy.
Looks like Sakuya isnt entirely sure what to think.
The prime suspects are the doctor who aided his family and his own half-brother If I were given the same situation, I wouldnt be as calm as he is.
We should write in the notes, and then go talk to the doctor Go find out exactly happened in the infirmary.
The music stops.
We didnt learn a lot since our last meeting in the maintenance room, but there were a few important details we could add now. I think were close to figuring out something big.
Weve figured out a lot of things, but theres still a lot that remains a mystery.
Its 6PM. We dont have much time. Can we solve this and get out alive in only four hours ?
All right, lets go, Saku--
I turned to speak to my partner, but he was nowhere to be found.
Wh-why didnt you say so earlier!?
Hes planning to confront the doctor alone!
I rushed out of the maintenance room, hoping to catch up to Sakuya before he did something stupid.
Where is the doctor?
He said he was going back to the infirmary. Maybe he forgot something there.
I was already on my way out of the room as Nanaki called out to me.
Youre going to run after him? Dont you want any tea? Well, be careful.
The music stops.
And there he was. Thankfully the doctor had not yet left.
Mr. Shirogane. You look quite fatigued. Would you care to rest for a little while?
You You are wrong, are you not, sir?
Whatever could you mean?
I wish to learn the truth.
What did you and Sakazaki do? Which of you decided to kill Lourde?
Thats not something to say without proof, Mr. Shirogane.
But then We have but little time left. Perhaps I shall explain things to you.
Of course. How could I let myself be swayed by idle rumors? The doctor could not possibly carry out such an atrocity.
Mr. Sakazaki did not kill her, either. Which raises the question Who did?
Sakazaki admitted that he was involved in the crime! He cannot possibly be--
The two of you did not kill her, but were involved ? But then Who did kill her ?
Oh, dear me This wont do. Talking to you makes me feel like Im about to fall asleep.
I suppose these are the limits of a mere mongrel.
The music stops.
What did he just say?
Could you be quiet for a moment, Mr. Shirogane? You bore me.
Wha What are you saying, sir!? I am not like Saka--
You did well. Thanks to you, Mr. Kawara has found almost everything he needs. Just one more push, and hell be done.
Thank you, Mr. Shirogane.
A glint of white steel. His left wing slowly traces an arc through the air.
I closed my eyes as I heard the sound of the knife coming towards me.
