Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 113: NGAE: ~/magenta/betray/red sigma\$ cd _

VLR OST: [Sinisterness]


Hey... Clover, can you choose "ally"?


We'll be stuck at 6 points if we both choose "betray".
But if we both cooperate, we'll get 2 points, and then we'll have 8. That means it'll be pretty easy for us to get 9 in the next round.



Listen in: [English/Japanese]


I said I want you to choose "ally".

You'll... choose "ally" too... right?

Of course.


I was preparing to enter an AB Room of my own when I heard Phi's voice at my elbow and turned.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Oh, hey Phi...
Something up?

How are you planning to vote?

I was just talking to Clover about that. We're planning to both vote "ally".

Yeah, I thought so.


Listen to me, Sigma.
Because Luna is... because Luna's not voting in this round, her vote will default to "ally".
Her opponent is Dio and me.
That means we're pretty much guaranteed to have 9 BP by the end of this round.

You and Dio are going to choose "betray"?

Luna's only got 1 BP left...
But she's not wearing her bracelet anymore.
You saw that, right?
That means it won't do anything if her BP goes negative.
Well, it's not like it can make her any deader anyway.


If you can get to 9 BP, then I'll take you with us.

Wait. You mean you're planning to escape?

Of course. If you don't come with us, you're going to be stuck here for the rest of your life.

Why? If you just wait until everyone's got 9 BP--

I can't do that.
You really think Dio's going to stick around once he's got enough points to split?


The number nine door's only going to open once.
If you pick "ally" and Clover does too, then you only have 8 points.
I promise you Dio's going to make a break for it as soon as he can.
If you want to have any chance at getting out, you need those 3 points, now.

So if I want to get out, I have to betray Clover?


Why are you telling me this?
How do I know you didn't just tell Clover the same thing?

Talk to Clover? I'd have about as much luck talking to a potato right now.
The truth is I want you to come with me.


You just know, huh?


Did you tell K?
He's got 6 points right now too, you know.

No, I haven't talked to him.
He's playing against Tenmyouji.
Tenmyouji's only got 1 point left.

So if he chooses "ally", he's going to get penalized...


[Music fades out]

It's almost time.
Remember what I said. You have to choose "betray".

She looked me in the eye until I nodded, then turned and jogged to her door.

999 OST: [Trepidation]

(If she does, then all I have to do is choose "betray", and I'm out of here...)
(No. I promised I'd choose "ally", so that's what I'm going to do.)
(...But Dio's almost certainly going to have 9 BP after this round...)
(If he gets out, I'm going to be stuck here forever.)

Nine... Eight... Seven...

(What the hell am I supposed to do?)

Three... Two... One...

What a dilemma! Will you vote to be nice, or to get the hell out of here?
