(mountain road)
(Yuki: It's getting dark...)
(Yuki: What time is it now?)
Yuki: *pant*... *pant*...
(Yuki: It was 30 minutes on the bus from the station. And then we walked on this mountain road a long time.)
(Yuki: But, Chiba-san hasn't slowed his pace.)
(Yuki: Instead, his walking speed has increased. It's all I can do to keep up.)
(Yuki: Still...)
(Yuki: Is there really a house here?)
(Yuki: The address Takato-san sent should be around here.)
(Yuki: But the road is just getting worse and it's not even paved anymore.)
(Yuki: Are we on the wrong road?)
(Yuki: ...)
Yuki: U, um, Chiba-san?
Chiba: ...
Yuki: Chiba-san...
(Yuki: It's kind of amazing.)
(Yuki: He's excited, or rather, I can even feel the tingle of tension over here.)
(Yuki: He must be... afraid.)
(Yuki: There's no one on the mountain and it's getting dark, just that would be creepy.)
(Yuki: We're going to see the ghosts that Chiba-san has been afraid of all this time.)
(Yuki: Of course he's scared.)
(Yuki: ...Even I'm a little scared.)
(Yuki: What will we do if it becomes night like this, without finding the house...?)
(Yuki: Sleep outdoors on the mountain? Or go back to the bus stop?)
Yuki: ...
(Yuki: How is getting discouraged going to help?)
(Yuki: It's okay. We'll definitely find it. It will work out somehow.)
(Yuki: I'm sure this is something that will help Chiba-san.)
(Yuki: The one who's really uneasy is Chiba-san. Not me.)
(Yuki: I have to get more of a grip...)
*bird screech*
Yuki: Uwah!!
Chiba: W, what is it, Asahina...!?
Yuki: S, sorry!!
Yuki: I didn't mean to startle you! Rather, I was startled, I mean!!
Yuki: I just kind of freaked out at the bird call...
Chiba: Bird...
Yuki: Haha. It's kind of stupid getting all jumpy over a bird.
Yuki: I kind of get a little freaked out thinking there's no one else on this mountain.
Yuki: I thought I would be the one okay with this sort of thing...
Yuki: Sorry...
Chiba: No...
Chiba: Don't worry about it.
Yuki: Oh...
(Yuki: Chiba-san is smiling...)
Chiba: What is it?
Yuki: No. It's nothing.
(Yuki: This is the first time I've seen Chiba-san smile since he injured Joker-san...)
Chiba: Still, it's gotten really dark.
Yuki: Yeah.
Chiba: ...Asahina, are you okay?
Yuki: Excuse me...?
Chiba: You're out of breath.
Yuki: Oh...
Yuki: I haven't exercised enough.
Chiba: No...
(Yuki: ...Oh.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san has slowed his pace.)
(Yuki: It's kind of...)
(Yuki: Like Chiba-san has gone back to normal a little bit.)
(Yuki: He's not that... empty shell-like Chiba-san.)
(Yuki: ...I'm glad.)
(Yuki: It wasn't wrong to come all this way.)
(Yuki: Was it?)
Chiba: Hey.
Yuki: What?
Chiba: Why did you come with me?
Yuki: ...Because I was really worried about you.
Chiba: Worried, huh...
Chiba: That's right. Of course you'd feel that way.
Chiba: I'm causing everyone trouble.
Chiba: Even Joker-sama...
Yuki: ...It's okay, Chiba-san.
Yuki: It's okay. I'm sure it'll work out somehow.
Yuki: Well, there's someone who saw the ghost only you could see, and made a sculpture, right?
Yuki: Before, we never even thought we'd find a clue like that.
Yuki: That's why I think it's kind of going in a good direction.
Yuki: Probably.
Chiba: ...Yeah.
Chiba: Asahina, you're nice.
Yuki: Really? I'm normal.
Yuki: A friend in need is a friend indeed, right?
Yuki: You helped me when I was in trouble.
Chiba: ...I see. That's the kind of person you are.
Chiba: ...
Chiba: Asahina.
Yuki: Yes.
Chiba: I have a request.
Yuki: What is it?
Chiba: I want to do something about myself. I want to conquer this weakness.
Chiba: I don't want to lose.
Chiba: I don't want to give up.
Chiba: I don't want to stay weak.
Chiba: So please stay with me a little longer.
Yuki: Of course. I'll go with you wherever.
Yuki: Chiba-san, I want to see it.
Yuki: Just how strong you can become.
Chiba: Asahina...
Yuki: I know you're strong.
Yuki: Things may be a little tough now, but I think you're a person who can absolutely do something about it.
Yuki: You're not the kind of person who would lose at this point.
Chiba: ...Yeah.
Chiba: Yes. You're right.
Chiba: I won't lose. I'll absolutely conquer this fear.
Chiba: There's no way I can lose at this point...!
Yuki: Yeah.
(Yuki: I'll believe that.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san is strong. Chiba-san won't lose.)
(Yuki: Even if Chiba-san wavers, I'll believe that.)
(Yuki: As much as I can.)
(Yuki: In Chiba-san...)
Chiba: ...*gasp* Asahina!
Chiba: Look over there! A light. Is it over there?
Yuki: A light? Where? I don't see...
Chiba: Look, there. It's a window of a house.
Yuki: A house...?
(Yuki: I don't see anything but trees, much less a house.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san...?)
Chiba: Let's go, this way!
Yuki: Chiba-san!?

*time passes, evening*
Chiba: It's here.
Yuki: ...It really is.
*knock knock*
Chiba: Someone, is there anyone there!?
*knock knock*

(small mountain house)
??: Did you need something?
Chiba: Oh...
Yuki: Um...
Yuki: Sorry to show up so suddenly. We're not suspicious. Um...
Chiba: ...Gramps? [note!]He's not related to Chiba, he's just addressing him as an old man.
Yuki: Huh?
??: Hm? Aren't you the Chibas' boy?
??: It's been a long time.
Yuki: Chiba-san... do you know him?
Chiba: Yeah.
Chiba: He's the old man who lived nearby when I was little...
??: I'm surprised you remember me. You've really grown up.
??: You were such a little runt.
??: Don't just stand in the entrance, come in.
??: Your friend too.
Yuki: Yes.
Yuki: Excuse me.
Chiba: ...
Yuki: Wow... is this a studio?
??: That's right. It's my workshop.
Yuki: There's all sorts of tools...
(Yuki: It's kind of...)
(Yuki: It's kind of weird.)
(Yuki: What is this?)
(Yuki: It's bright, and there really shouldn't be anything scary.)
(Yuki: I wonder why...?)
(Yuki: It's like there's a chill down my spine, or the back of my neck is prickling...)
(Yuki: I have kind of a bad feeling...)
(Yuki: But, anyway, we have to finish what we came here for.)
Yuki: Um... Are you Nosu-san the sculptor?
Nosu Kiichi: Yes, indeed.
Yuki: We're looking for the person who makes ghost sculptures.
Yuki: Like little white dolls, about 15cm tall...
Nosu: You mean this?
Yuki: Oh! Right! This! Chiba-san, after all, it is this person...
Yuki: Ch... Chiba-san...?
(Yuki: Wh... what's the matter? He looks so stern...)
(Yuki: Is it because he's scared of the ghost?)
(Yuki: No...)
Chiba: ...You made this ghost?
Nosu: This sculpture isn't a ghost.
Nosu: Oh, come to think of it, back then you were scared of this.
Yuki: It's not a ghost...?
Yuki: Then what is this a sculpture of?
Nosu: This? Well, it's...
Nosu: A soul.
Yuki: A soul...?
Nosu: Right. It's the shape of a human soul.
Nosu: It's a human's real shape.
Nosu: Once the body disappears, everyone becomes this.
Nosu: Me... and of course, you.
Nosu: You know, don't you?
Yuki: ...
(Yuki: I kind of...)
(Yuki: I kind of have a really creepy feeling...)
(Yuki: I want to hurry and get out of here.)
(Yuki: This old man is scary.)
(Yuki: Why?)
(Yuki: He's a little weird, but he's not saying stuff that's all that scary. He doesn't look like a bad person.)
(Yuki: But...)
Yuki: Ch, Chiba-san...
Yuki: Um, why don't we go back for today?
Yuki: Well, it's late and we met the person who made the ghosts...
Yuki: ...!
Chiba: Wait a little longer.
Yuki: Chiba-san...
Chiba: Asahina, sorry.
Chiba: But, I'm sure it's now or never.
Yuki: ...But.
Yuki: But, Chiba-san, you're shaking...
Chiba: Yeah...
Chiba: But, I can't. If I run now, the same thing will keep happening.
Chiba: I'll definitely protect you.
Chiba: No matter what happens, I won't let you be hurt.
Chiba: So...
Chiba: Just a little longer...
Chiba: Give me strength, Asahina.
Yuki: ...Alright.
Nosu: What is it? Both of you look so stern.
Chiba: ...Who are you?
Nosu: What are you saying? I'm your neighbor, Old Man Nosu.
Chiba: Are you really going to claim that?
Nosu: Yeah, that's right, coward Hayato-kun.
Nosu: You really are a coward. Crying that you're afraid of the dark. Crying that you're afraid of the wind.
Nosu: Like this.
Nosu: You were scared of the little ones I made, thinking they were ghosts.
Nosu: You're scared even now, aren't you? Coward Hayato-kun.
Chiba: ...I'm not scared.
Chiba: I'm not a kid anymore.
Nosu: Ahaha.
Nosu: You're shaking so much, don't overdo it.
Nosu: After all, you stayed a coward.
Chiba: No.
Nosu: You were scared then too.

*lights go out*
*Nosu turns ghostly*
Nosu: Right?
Yuki: Eek!
(Yuki: Wh, what is this...?)
(Yuki: It's bad... this is bad...)

CG: Chiba protects Yuki
Yuki: Ch, Chiba-san...
Chiba: It's okay.
Yuki: But, this is really bad...
Yuki: Even you, Chiba-san...
(Yuki: His hands are shaking.)
(Yuki: He's scared.)
(Yuki: Of course. With something like this...)
(Yuki: This can't be possible.)
Chiba: I'll protect you.
Chiba: I won't lose my head like before.
Chiba: I won't hurt the ones important to me.
Chiba: So...
(Yuki: Chiba-san...)
(Yuki: Chiba-san is trying to fight.)
(Yuki: Even though he's scared.)
(Yuki: Even though actually, I'm sure he wants to run so much he can't stand it.)
(Yuki: He's decided he won't lose.)
(Yuki: ...This is no good.)
(Yuki: I'm the one who's shaken.)
(Yuki: I have to get a grip. I decided to believe in him.)
(Yuki: Don't be afraid, self!)
Yuki: ...Yeah.
Yuki: It's okay. I believe in you.
(Yuki: I hope my feelings get through.)
(Yuki: If that can help Chiba-san even a little bit.)
Yuki: You're strong, Chiba-san.
Yuki: You're definitely strong.
Yuki: You'll protect me.
Yuki: You won't lose to anyone.
(Yuki: May Chiba-san's spirit not be broken.)
(Yuki: He's scared, but,)
(Yuki: I'm really scared too, but,)
Yuki: I believe in you.
Yuki: So do your best.
Yuki: Do your best... and show me that you'll win!
Chiba: Yeah...!
Nosu: What do you think you can beat, even though you're so scared?
Chiba: Myself.
Nosu: Oho...
Chiba: I finally understand it. The meaning of this fear.
Nosu: What's that?
Chiba: You're death.
end CG

Nosu: I'm death?
Chiba: That's right.
Nosu: You've been saying such awful things.
Nosu: Even though I was so nice to you.
Nosu: Even though I played with you.
Nosu: Even though you were so attached to me.
Nosu: Even though I was always your friend.
Nosu: Still.

CG: Chiba protects Yuki
Chiba: Yeah.
Chiba: I don't care if you resent me.
Chiba: You can go ahead and curse me.
Chiba: I was weak. I was hopelessly weak.
Chiba: That's why I ran away.
Chiba: But even though I ran away, the fear didn't go away. I should have forgotten, but it still didn't disappear.
Chiba: In that case,
Chiba: All I can do is fight.
Chiba: Gramps.
Chiba: I liked you.
Chiba: But I'll beat you.
Chiba: I just have to win once.
Chiba: If I defeat this fear, I'll be freed.
Chiba: Isn't that right, Asahina?
Yuki: Yes...!!
(Yuki: That's right...)
Yuki: That's absolutely right!
Yuki: Just once.
Chiba: I should believe I've won.
Chiba: By any means. Whatever I have to do.
Yuki: Yeah.
Yuki: You can't lose.
Yuki: You'll win.
Yuki: Win.
Chiba: Yeah.
Chiba: This fear...
Chiba: I'll crush it!
