Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 38: [continued]

VLR OST: [Consternation]

This was Quark's!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Correct. It has 9 BP, too. There's no mistake.

What is Quark's bracelet doing here?
Wait, no, hold on...
If Quark's bracelet is here, then... that means...

Not Quark...

Just because his bracelet's off doesn't mean Quark's dead!


In fact, this could be good news. A ray of hope!

Ray of hope...?

If Quark still had his bracelet on, then he would have ended up like Tenmyouji and Clover.
But he's not wearing it.

You mean the bracelet came off before the doors closed?


That's impossible.
Zero Jr. told us that they only come off when your heart stops, or when you escape.

Maybe he got out, then.

Right, he's got 9 BP...
Wait, so you're saying he escaped, then came back and left his bracelet here?
No, that's impossible too.
Zero Jr. said the number nine door only opens once.
Even if he was able to get outside, he couldn't come back in.

Why do you have to be so pessimistic?!
Have you actually seen Quark dead? Huh?
You need to think positive, Sigma.



[Music cuts out]


Quark is definitely alive!
He has to be... He has to be... I refuse to believe he isn't.
I can't let an innocent kid like that get killed...

VLR OST: [Anxiousness]

Examining their bodies.
Tenmyouji first.



What kind of clues...?

To who might have killed them.
Finding Quark's bracelet tells us something.
If the killer saw it, that would make for an obvious motive.

The killer handcuffed them to the sink to prevent that.

Right. That's my guess at least.


What's wrong?

I can't find anything.


I should have found something.

He sprayed our wrists with luminol.

...And now you can't find it.


Do you think the killer took it?

I don't know.

Give me a minute.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

See her thigh? Doesn't it look like there's something written there?

Yeah, it does...

I'm sorry... I'll have to move your leg a little bit.

It says "0 1 6".

What does that mean?

Hang on... I feel like I've seen that somewhere...


0 1 6... 0 1 6...
I know I've seen it somewhere...


It's no use... I can't remember.

Don't get my hopes up like that.

She must have written them after she got hit with the Soporil.
There would have been a few minutes before she went all the way under when she could have done something.
I think she probably used those last minutes to tell the rest of us who killed her.

Maybe, but the only people who could have done it are K and Dio.
Assuming it wasn't one of us, I mean...


I mean, I'm not saying he did it, just...

I can't keep up anymore...
Everything here is a goddamn mystery!

Who killed her?

But when would she have done it? And we don't have a good explanation for why she would have wrapped the knife in the handkerchief.

So who could've killed her?

But now we'll never know for sure...

Who killed everyone?!
Was it Zero? Zero Sr.?!
And who the hell is Zero Sr.?!
What the hell does he want?!
Why does this game even exist, and why did they kidnap us and bring us here?!
While we're at it, where is this? When is this?!

I feel like my head's about to explode!

A clue! A hint! C'mon, you've gotta have something!



Listen in: [English/Japanese]


Okay, but... how is that important?

So they could... test for blood?

What would they need to do in order to do that?

They just need to spray the bottle at whatever they want to test.

That's it?

No, wait, you're right...
Luminol reacts with organic compounds and glows, but the glow is really faint...


And that would mean...?

That would mean...

VLR OST: [Strain]

Onward to the only heretofore generally accessible room in this goddamn facility with a functioning lightswitch.

And answers! Onward to breaks in the case!
