MANE OF THE WIND #7

6)
Mane of the Wind [4]
Magic on Christmas Eve

8)
1: I heard it was a stray dog!
SFX: WEEOO
2: A stray dog attacked someone!
SFX: WEEOO
3: There it is!
4: This way!
5: Catch it!

6: Mitsumine Shrine

There is a surprising number of shrines where wolves are treated as envoys of the gods. I heard there was a shrine like that in Chichibu, Saitama Prefecture, so I went there to collect some data while I was out exercising.

7: Oh. It's pretty close.
SFX: Hmm...
8: If it's 4 hours there and back, I won't have to make it into some big trip.
9: Terrible with maps, terrible with directions, terrible with calculating distances
10: To Be Continued in Part 2

9)
SFX: WEEOO (x3)
SFX: HAA (x2)
1: Grr...

11)
SFX: HOOO...
SFX: RATTLE
SFX: AHH

12)
1: A child?
SFX: FWISH...
2: She saw me!
3: Ahh!
4: Urgh...
5: It's no use!
6: My muscles are too stiff...
7: I can't move...
8: Hazumi!

13)
box 1: I'm so stupid. All it took was a few inconsiderate jerks
box 3: to anger me enough that I transformed...
box 5: I had no choice but to leave her there and run. We'd stand out too much if we were together...
1: Sou!
box 7: Is she safe? I need to find her, fast...

14)
box 1: Or is it better for both of us
box 2: if I just never see her again?
box 3: It's no good... I'm too tired...
box 4: to think any more...

15)
SFX: THUD
SFX: RUSTLE (x2)
1: That...
2: girl...

16)
1: Clothes...
2: This is all we have, though.
3: They're all worn and moldy.
4: But
5: you'll catch a cold otherwise!
6: Are you
7: hungry?
8: There's canned food here.
SFX: CLUNK (x3)
9: Canned mackerel, canned salmon, canned fruit.
10: They're all rusted, though.

17)
1: Oh!
2: And there's canned chicken meatloaf too!
SFX: CATCH
3: Say
4: something.
5: Why did you come back?
6: Huh?
7: You saw what happened, didn't you?

18)
1: Oh! When you changed from a dog into a human?
2: That was some trick! How'd you do it?
3: Is it a secret?
4: Yeah...
5: It's OK. I won't tell anyone.
6: Isn't this house deserted? What's a kid doing in here at a time like this?
7: I
8: went out to play, but I ended up walking too far and couldn't find out how to get home. I was thinking about what I should do when you appeared.
9: So you're lost...
10: I'm Shiina Hinako. What's your name?
11: Sou.

19)
1-2: Sou.
3: Hey, Sou.
4: Leave me alone. I'm tired...
5: You can sleep, just put some clothes on. Please.
6: You're pretty, and you give me butterflies, but I wouldn't know what to do if I had to sleep beside you in the nude!
7: Ohhh geez...
8: Fine, fine...
SFX: puff (x2)
9: Blech.

20)
1: I guess it's barely wearable...
2: Why haven't you gone to the police or used a phone or something?
3: It's getting dark.
4: I'm afraid to walk around in a strange lace.
5: My dad knows where this house is, so I'm sure he'll come and find me.
6: Here we go. Matches and candles.
7: Sou, put these on top of the cans.
8: It's Christmas Eve. This'll have to be our cake...
9: and our light.
10: It lit up!
SFX: clap (x3)

21)
1: Hey,
2: Sou...
3: I had a feeling
4: that something good was going to happen this Christmas Eve.
5: Guess I was right.
6: I met such a nice guy like you in a place like this, after all.
7: What a weird kid...

22)
1: What are these?
2: Oh, those? Just some pictures I drew. I always carry a sketchbook with me.
3: What are they pictures of?
4: This is
5: you, isn't it?
6: And
7: this...

23)
SFX: FLUTTER...
SFX: FWOOSH...
SFX: rattle (x10)
1: Your dad sure is taking his sweet time.
2: You can go to sleep, Sou.
3: My dad's busy, so he may not have gotten a chance to come yet.

24)
1: He says
2: he doesn't like the pictures I draw.
3: That they're creepy. He always rips them up and throws them away.
4: He's my second dad,
5: but I still like him.
6: But maybe
7: he hates me
8: just like the way
9: he hates
10: my pictures...

25)
1-2: Heh...

26)
1: He'll come, right?
2: My dad...
3: He'll
4: come, won't he?
SFX: rattle (x6)

27)
1: What are you going to do?
2: I'm about ready to leave.
3: It's OK. I'll just keep waiting here.

28)
1: Don't tell me you ran away from home or something.
2: My dad
3: just can't remember where this house is!
4: Don't look at me that way.
5: So basically,
6: you want your dad to come and get you.
7: Where's your house?
8: Sou...
9: The least I can do is contact him.
10: Sou, give this to my dad!
11: You don't need to tell me where it is. I can find out where it is from looking at that.

29)
1: Thanks. You're the best, Sou.
SIGN: Shiina

30)
1: Hurry up and go get her.
2: I don't know what you've been doing all night, but why didn't you even bother to check on where your own child was?
3: Wait! Hold on!
4: Where... did you find this picture?
5: This is Hinako's.
6: This is the one she was holding
7: when she was kidnapped.
8: What did you just say...
9: Do you know where Hinako is? Where did you find her?!
10: Is she safe? Is she alive?!
11: Stop it! This is just some sick joke!

31)
1: She was kidnapped a year ago...
2: We lost both our daughter and the 3 billion we payed for a ransom, and never saw either of them again...
3: I don't know where you found this, but there's no way we're going to fall for some lie like that.
4: Hold on a minute.
5: That's strange.
6: Huh?
7: Hinako said that if I showed this picture to you, then you'd know where she is.

32)
1: And your eyes are telling me
2: that you know just what this picture means.
3: Why are you acting
4: like this is all just some lie?
SFX: YANK
5: W-wait, you!
6: The picture!
7: Hinako's waiting for you.
8: If you know where she is, then go and get her!

33)
SFX: FWOOSH...
SFX: TOK

34)
1: Hinako!
2: Kidnapped?
3: But she said she just got lost.
4: That's not right.
5: She's been there for a year.
6: That picture...
7: was it a message
8: to the only person who knows where she is?
9: Sou!

36)
1: I found you..
2: Come with me,
3: Hazumi.

37)
1: Hinako!
2: Hinako! Hey, where did you go?
3: Hinako!
4: These
5: are the pictures she drew.

38)
1: It looks like
2: these pictures are telling a story.
3: Umm...
4: First we have this one.
5: A picture of a girl being kidnapped by someone...
6: Then someone
7: whispers to someone..
8: Then comes the one you had, Sou. A picture of a girl in a house alone...
9: Hmmm...

39)
1: Here's how they look when you put them in order.
2: Then someone whispers to someone, then the girl gets kidnapped.
3: Then she's taken to this old house,
4: Where she waits for many days...
5: Is this girl Hinako?
6: Did she
7: draw pictures of her own kidnapping?
8: I don't understand this one...
9: A girl sleeping under a tree?
10: Hey...
11: Sou, is this...

40)
1: Kyaah!
2: Hazumi...
3: I can't find Hinako...

41)
1: That was quick.
2: So you did know where this house was.
3: What are you two
4: Doing here?
5: I thought
6: I burned all these pictures.

42)
1: You're the one who kidnapped Hinako.
2: You were lying at your house.
3: Where have you taken her now?
4: I don't know what you're trying to do, but how could you leave your daughter in a place like this?
5: She was crying.
6: ...Stop it.
7: Stop acting
8: like Hinako's still alive.

43)
1: What...?
2: Hinako died here a year ago.
3: You probably found that out, so you're trying to blackmail me.
4: Wh...
5: What are you talking about?
6: Hinako was just here...

44)
1: She was murdered...
2: Hazumi?!
3: She isn't dead. You killed her!
4: I know what the pictures were trying to say, Sou!
5: Hinako was murdered here.
6: Then, she was buried underneath the tree on the side of the house.
7: Those pictures explain what happened
8: up to her death!
9: But how?
10: How did she know that she was going to die here?

45)
1: She knew
2: everything...
3: Hinako drew those pictures three years earlier
4: and then showed them to me...
5: She had the ability
6: to see the future. Everything she saw, she drew.
7: But she only ever saw bad things.
8: Deaths, accidents, disasters...
9: And all her predictions
10: were frighteningly accurate.
11: At first, I kidnapped her in order to conceal company funds.
12: I intended to return her after the 3 billion yen ransom mysteriously 'disappeared.'

46)
1: But...
2: then, I knew that she'd draw more pictures
3: of my fate... or perhaps even my death.
4: I'd appear... in her pictures...
5: I was
6: afraid of her!
SFX: CLINK (x3)

47)
SFX: GRAB
1: I don't believe that she's dead! Who did I see, then?!
SFX: CLENCH
2: She wanted to know
3: that her pictures were wrong! That her dad would never kill her!

48)
1: That's what she wanted to hear!
2: That's why she showed you those pictures!!
3: Sou!

49)
1: Wahh!
2: Aaauuuugh!

50)
1: H... Hieee?!
2: Sou!
3: Sou! No!
4: Don't kill my dad!

51)
1: Don't kill him!!
SFX: TOK
2: You've done enough...
3: My dad's here now.

52)
1: Ggh...
2: Urgh...
3: He remembered
4: that I waited here for him...

53)
SFX: FSSH (x3)

54)
1: I'm going to go buy some flowers.
2: Sou...

55)
1: So that's where you were.
SFX: FSSH...
2: Thank you.
3: Now
4: I can go home.

56)
1: Hinako.
2: Sou...
3: We had such a wonderful Christmas Eve.
4: With your wolf trick...
5: And your magic...
6: You gave me the first good premonition I've ever had.
