VLR OST: [Portentousness]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

You betrayed me, Sigma...



I... What other choice did I have?

You liar!
You're a coward!
You don't care about anybody but yourself!
All you wanted was to get out of here!
You're horrible! I hate you!

Wait a minute. Just listen to me for a second...
Whatever I did, Dio and Phi were going to get 9 BP.
The door would have been opened whether I had 9 points or not.

So?! All that means is that you picked "betray" because you didn't wanna get left behind!

No, that's not it. How could we know if they would go get help once they escaped?
I can trust Phi. But Dio is different.
I didn't know what Dio might do to Phi after they went through the door. What if he turned out to be Zero Sr.?
So I figured that if they were going to escape anyway, I should go with them and make sure they--

Is that it? Is that your excuse?!
Liar! Liar!
You're just like Dio!
You're a coward!




I was stupid to trust you.

Clover, I...


[Music fades out]

I heard a clang, and turned--

Gonna have plenty of time to watch soaps on the outside, so I didn't feel like I needed to stick around to see how this little drama played out.

VLR OST: [Strain]



All right lady and gentleman. Shall we?



Why so serious?
This really isn't the time for hesitation.
You both crossed a line you weren't supposed to cross.

But you didn't have a choice, did you? You had to survive!
Isn't that the way an animal thinks, though? Don't get me wrong, I see the logic, but it's kind of... animal logic.
Still, you made your bed. Now you gotta lie in it.

The losers, the weak? Throw 'em away!
That's how nature works, my friends--that's life at its most pure!
You get me?
Now c'mon, hurry up and--

The number nine door has been opened.
It will remain open for 9 seconds.

Anyway, I'm out. Peace!

Wait! Goddamnit, Dio!

Tenmyouji leapt forward. Dio faked left, then dashed right, slipping around Tenmyouji and through the door--

The number nine door is closing.


Shut up!
Just do it!

I looked at her, slightly confused.

But before I could respond, her hand closed around my arm like a vise, and she hauled me bodily through the open door.

[Music fades out]

The number nine door has closed.
This ends the Nonary Game.
Thank you for your participation.

Open up! Open this goddamn door!

Tenmyouji's voice was muffled by the thick steel, but I could still hear his desperation and anger.
I tried to ignore it.
