{A lady’s voice}
“Did you say something, Haru-kun?”

{Haru}
“Hmmm? No. I didn’t.”

{???}
(crawling towards the bushes)
“Huh?! A girl?”

{A lady’s voice}
“I could’ve sworn I heard a man’s voice just now.”

{Haru}
“It’s must be just your imagination, Nika.
You know that no one can enter this realm except for you and us, your faes.”

{Nika}
“Right… I must be tired from all this last-minute intensive practice.
I probably should head home and go in the shower.”

{Haru}
“Alright. You deserved a rest anyway. I’ll take a nap as well…
So same time tomorrow?”

(Nika nods)

{???}
(frantically tries to get up)
“W-Wait! Don’t leave me!
Excuse me, W-Where are we? I’m lost and uh-“

{Nika}
“I’ll see you tomorrow! Thanks, Haru-kun!”

{???}
“I said, wait!”

(places his hand on her shoulders)

{???}
(swiftly walks back)
“W-What the heck?! M-My hand?! I-It just went right through her?!”

(Nika hums as she disappears from the garden)

{???}
(thinking to himself)
“W-Wait? Where did she go?! I-Is she…
No. It can’t be… There’s no such thing as ghost violinist… Isn’t there?”

{???}
(quickly look back towards the garden)
“Then… Am I… dead?”

{???}
(frantically pinches himself)
“N-No, it can’t be. I can feel that I’m alive and solid.
I still have a pulse and feel pain but…
Why can’t she see me? She definitely heard my voice no?”

{???}
“Now that I think about it, ghosts must not really be aware that they’re dead… Do they?”

{???}
“Am I really…?”
