Part 98: Episode 90: Library Clues
I havent had much of sense of time passing since the dome appeared, but its already evening.
The atmosphere in the maintenance office is tense.
The doctor said hed be waiting deep beneath the surface Does this building have a basement?
Certainly not one that appears on the official plans. But maybe
Under the medical center? But that ones blocked off with concrete
It does not seem to me that the medical center is an entirely independent building.
Missed something or forgotten something. Somewhere I forgot to look ?
Thats right! The encyclopedia from the library, in the medical center
and the chronology and the medical records. Id like to talk to Nageki again.
Youve thought of something?
Yeah, I need to go check. Sakuya--
I turned to Sakuya with a question, but I went silent as I saw his condition.
He hasnt spoken since what happened in the infirmary.
I cant blame him I know how he feels. Better to leave him alone.
I suppose Ill search for Nageki on my own. Hopefully hell appear for me again.
I know. Im worried about it, too.
Youre fading again. Where are you ?
I entered the library, hearing Nagekis voice.
Ive found out a lot about the school and about you.
I suppose you know who I am, then?
Sort of, but there are things I need to ask you. Thats why Im here.
The fire five years ago, and the dome today. How are they related?
Nageki must know something about the secrets this school holds.
You arent really here anymore, are you?
That might be so. Or it might not.
I saw, in the school records. It says you died, five years ago. In an accident in the medical center.
You stopped your ?
In other words--
At the very least, I took my life through my own will. I am almost sure of that.
So you didnt die in the accident ?
He hangs his head in silence. Looks like he cant remember everything from before he died
I need a clue. There must be a basement under the medical center, and I need to get in there
Oh, thats right the encyclopedia.
You used to go to the medical center, right? Did you switch one of the encyclopedias from there with one here?
Thats what I want to know! I guess Ill just tell him.
Look, you know how the encyclopedias here are out of order? There are two copies of volume nine, and no volume six.
The medical center has the same encyclopedias?
Yeah. There are two copies of six there, and no nine.
Yeah Anyway, one of the copies of volume six there has a library sticker on it. Someone must have taken it from here.
Mr. Kawara. Try reading this copy of volume nine.
Lookings worth a thousand spoken words, I guess.
But when I made to open the book
This isnt right.
It looks like just another book when its closed, but
Its a box ?
Its full of files. Some sort of documents ?
There all from five years ago. These must have been
What does it say? That one.
This is talking about using carrier individuals as biological weapons to fight humans ?
It has the same title as the file in the headmasters office. But I never expected anything like this
Meaning this school has been being used for biological weapons development for at least five years.
2180: New strains of Sumatera Influenza isolated.
2183: A new strain has been isolated from Fujishiro Nageki. It is lethal to humans, and has been named the Charon Virus. It has entered research at St. Pigeonations Medical Center.
Humans I met would always get very sick
Are you remembering something?
I think I was the one who brought that book here. The birds with me in the medical center often did secret things in the reference room.
I wanted to tell someone. Tell someone important what was happening in the center--
What was it? My family ? It must have been my family
Why didnt I notice? Did I need your help to see ?
He paces nervously in circles, rambling on to himself.
If youve realized something, it would help me to know what it is
