Downstairs, three people - the closest to the origin of the scream - converge on a single spot. Ryouga rushes through the dark corridors, frantically searching for the screamer. Mikage coolly hops through the corridors and rooms. Ayano also runs out of the room she had been searching, rushing towards the source. Together they meet at a large wooden door. Ryouga, sweat beating his forehead, looks to Ayano. "You heard the scream too, huh?" Ayano replies with a short nod.
Mikage slowly cracks the door open. The door opens to darkness, a single light emanating from the room's centre. Slowly, Ayano, Ryouga and Mikage step into the room, and stumble towards the candle resting down on the floor. When they reach the edge of the candle's light, they each see something. Water dripping from the ceiling. Their gazes turn upwards as they follow the slow dripping of the water that falls from above them.
First, the three of them see a black shoe. Their gazes slowly draw upwards as the follow the body that hangs above them. Ayano gasps in fear and shock as she sees the victim's face. Mikage's face pales as he sees the noose tied tight around their neck. It is Ryouga who stays calm and leaves the room, returning minutes later with a wooden chair. Standing atop the chair, he gently lowers the body to the ground, feeling for a pulse in the wrist. He slowly nods his head as the results materialize in his brain.
She is dead.
A girl with light brown hair and a grey hoodie. A girl named Miel.
