Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

Part 29: The Handkerchief

K and Luna aren't here...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

What should we do?

What do you mean, what should we do? All we can do is wait.
We don't want to end up missing eachother by accident.

Yeah... Guess you've got a point.

I just want to check something really quick.

Check what?

Remember? She was kneeling down, looking at something on the ground.


VLR OST: [Portentousness]

Find something?

Isn't this... blood?

Ah hah! Nice work there, Sigma!

I don't need you to pat me on the back. It makes me feel stupid or something.

The truth hurts.


Hmm... So... Blood, huh?





Stop running around!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

I noticed something.

Oh yeah? And what, pray tell, was that?

The same thing Clover and Alice noticed.

That's... arg. Can't you just tell me?

The side that's facing the wall has blood on it.
What's the first thing you think of when you hear "blood"?


This is no time to be screwing around!


The handkerchief Alice had.
There's some blood on it that we assumed belonged to the old lady.

Let's say this thing was on the floor next to the rightmost AB room.
We'll assume that the blood on the side facing the wall came from this handkerchief.
Okay, then what?

What do you think was going through her mind?

"Why is there a bloodstained handkerchief here?"
Or something along those lines.


"Did this belong to the old woman? It must have."


"But if it did... then who put it here?"
Or... wait... Maybe someone just dropped it. Or they could have thrown it here...


You want more?

You're almost there.

"How long has this handkerchief been here?"
Something like that?

Well, I imagine it wasn't here from the start...

You know, when we started.
When you and I escaped from the AB Room through the hatch on the roof.
The first thing we did after we got out and met everyone except for Clover and K was go look at the number nine door.

Yeah, I know. We looked at them from this exact angle.
I'm pretty sure there wasn't any handkerchief there then...
There wasn't...

Heh. Finally figured it out, huh?


Probably. They moved the rightmost one all the way to the left.

And who was trapped in there when the Nonary Game started?

Well, it would have been the AB Room on the right at first, so...
