Another choice awaits Aya. After revealing real goal of Father, daughter barely got away (at least for now), but his assistant, Maria, was punished for failure. You can either leave room or help Maria. See beginning of this long, long night here.
Ignore Maria and leave.
Why we would help accomplice in Mengele-sque mad experiments?! She got what deserved. Leave her to die, I say! So Aya is back in corridor with sand bags. As only one exit is not dead end, go east. In another long hall, east and south. Next screen…
…use save point and go again south. In next room, Aya notices danger and tries to close door. Too late.
Well, shit. Aya tries to run, manages to break through door and enters familiar area – shrine. She suddenly trips.
COME BE WITH US…
I have to keep you still, don’t I?
Father jumps off altar.
I didn’t want to hurt you, Aya… It’s a shame.
No… stop, father…
But I can cover your leg with a skirt easily enough, so it should be fine.
I don’t want this… I wanted to stay with father… I love you… father… so please… stop this…!
Alfred prepares himself.
Don’t worry. Father and Aya will always be together now. So rest in peace…
Alfred raises chainsaw.
Girl screams like, well, girl. Darkness.
Undetermined amount of time later… clocks ticks.
Well, it’s about time to sleep.
Father kisses Aya on forehead and exits doll room.
…good night, Aya.
Well, this choice also is not very good.
Eugh, it seems we have to help her after all. Ah well. Search again shelfs with shady drugs.
Is there anything here…?
You will find Bandages. Use them on Maria.
A bandage… well, I can’t wrap this around your clothes. Lift your skirt a little, Maria.
After some time…
This should help stop the blood…
Mistress… thank you for caring for me…
Thanks, but no thanks. Hope you will be cut down again, giving time for Aya to escape mansion.
It’s fine, don’t worry about it!
I should be most loathsome in your eyes…
For very good reason.
Don’t say that…
It’s true… I’ve known how you feel, mistress.
But you are very kind to show me such compassion…
Maria… Maria, can you stand?
Let’s get out of here together.
I’m the same as you, Maria. I can’t live without father’s love. But if father doesn’t want us… we’ve been abandoned. We have to live without him now. Even though you and I can’t live alone… so… we’ll help each other to keep living even if father’s gone!
Maria comes to decision adn stands up.
I shall accompany you.
Aya is clearly happy.
Maria falls on knees again, catched by Aya.
Apologies, mistress… but could I have your shoulder?
You are in control now, additionally burdened by Maria. Exit room (north), east… what, we can already hear chainsaw roar? This damn assistant only slowed you down!
They run, but Maria falls on way south.
Mistress… never mind me! Escape!
No… we’re leaving together!
I can’t go any further… you must escape alone, mistress.
I can’t be…
It is fine. I shall not leave you alone. I will follow behind for sure… believe me, please…
Aya hesistates for a moment, then run. After a while, father runs after her, kicking Maria’s body out of way. We are now in familiar room with crow. South. Yes, this room again.
I fooound yooou!
She runs away… again. And trips in shrine… again.
HEEHEEHEEHEEHEE… COME BE WITH US…
This all is a little repetive. Aya screams, father boasts his love to daughter. It is exactly like before…
Finish it all.
…except knives from nowhere hits dad, preventing Aya’s death.
I… love… you… …… Aya…
Additional sharp things embeds themself in father’s body.
Daughter wails over her dad’s body. Maria limps to them and cuts down doll in one swing of knife.
Are you hurt?
Sni… sniff… Mariaaa…
Did father… die…?
I apologize, mistress. I had no other choice left to protect you…
…Okay. I guess this is for the best… (right, mom?)
Suddenly, in best horror tradition.
Girls screams. But someone else intervene in last moment.
Aya falls on knees.
Screen fades to black.
You saved us… thank you…
You mean my mom?
I said I was sorry for scaring you. I didn’t intend to get injured… believe that, at least.
I understand. Mom wanted to protect me. Thank you, mom… I want to see you again…
She wanted that, too. But I don’t think she wanted to be seen as she is now.
That’s… whatever mom looks like, I’d…
It’s all right. She’s watching you from afar. So don’t be sad. If you are, it will only make her sad.
The curse will wear off soon… so it’s almost farewell.
You’ll go away?
We’re all alive now only because of the curse…
But there is something I must do before I go. And that is set fire to this mansion.
Why would…! You can’t do that! All those memories of being happy here…
It’s not my intent to burn those. But it’s possible that someone could find traces of your father here. We can’t let the same tragedy happen again.
Is that what mom wanted, too?
Boy nods again.
Okay… if that’s what mom wanted, then do it…
It’s okay, Maria. Even if this house is gone, my memories of father and mom won’t go.
Mistress… yes, that’s right…
Aya, there’s one thing I ask of you. Do not ever forget the people who were sacrificed here. None of us had any relatives. No one looked for us… no one remembered us… no one knew we existed at all. Our existence will be forgotten to the world. But we did indeed live. So I don’t want you to forget that. I want you to hold proof in your heart that we were here… that is the least you can do for us.
Yes… I’ll never forget.
Well, this is goodbye… thank you…
Boy somehow creates fires all around.
And comes closer to Aya.
May you be smiled upon.
He backs off.
Girls exit mansion. In shrine, Ogre walks to dead body of Alfred.
I have seen countless many foolish humans. But you are the most foolish of them all. A human mad with desire is more fearsome than any demon. And yet I adore such foolish humans… come to me. Come to me, and you may research to your heart’s content…
Body shakes vigorously.
In meantime, outside of mansion.
It is just the two of us now…
Well, and Snowball.
Hoho… yes, that’s right.
I don’t know… we have to find somewhere to live… but I’m sure I can’t live alone. Maria… will you come with me?
Yes, of course. You have taught me much, mistress. Now it is time for me to help you… whatever awaits us ahead, I wish to protect you all the way.
Thank you… let’s go.
Are you sure? Without watching to the end…?
…yeah. It’s fine.
They walk away. But Aya looks back and wonders:
Actually, I wonder where that guy with the black coat went? I kinda hope he’s okay… I’m sure he’ll be alright, though. He’s a really strange guy. Come on, Snowball.
Aya takes rabbit in hands.
Father, mother… goodbye…
She walks away, but notices something on ground.
Maria notices that Aya did not followed her.
Aya caughts up to her in hurry.
Hmm… nothing. Let’s go.
And she runs off screen.
The mistress is very hardy… even after that harsh experience, she walks on without shedding a tear. With the mistress beside me, I feel we can overcome anything… however… what is this uneasiness I feel? …doctor?
Screen fades away. After long, long time…
End of end.
I’ve heard about this place…
She reads from signpost: “Drevis Clinic”. Girl smiles.
Clinic…? Yeah, this must be the place. It’s out in the middle of nowhere… no one would even notice it.
She walks to door and knocks. Door opens and familiar woman stands.
(She’s so pretty… is she the doctor?)
What seems to be the problem?
Yes, well… I was born rather feeble… I’ve asked my local doctor for a checkup, but… how do I say this… my family is really poor, so the doctor’s given up on me. That’s why I came here. I heard the doctor here does checkups for free…
Yes, we don’t ask any money from our patients. So don’t worry.
Really? I honestly don’t have any, so… I can really get examined?
Th… thank you so much!
What’s your name?
I’m Jean. Jean Rooney.
Jean… that’s a wonderful name. I’m Aya Drevis. Nice to meet you, Jean!
Yes! You too! Ah… cough! Cough!
That doesn’t sound good! We should examine you right away. Come in, come in!
Both women enter house.
Was it difficult for you?
I met a kind old woman on the way here who took me part of the way on a coach. It was so nice of her!
There are some really nice people out there…
Just like you, Dr. Drevis.
Heehee… You think so?
Aya moves out of way and they enter checkup room.
Now, lie down here.
Janet do as ordered. Aya goes to shelfs with medicaments and Not A Shady Drugs.
(Boy, I’m nervous… … I hear horses… they don’t sound far off… are they in the back?)
You have very pretty eyes, you know…
Stop with these unsettling comments.
So beautiful… I can’t stop looking at them…
Aya, you seriously creep me out. Janet blushes.
N… no one’s said that to me before… thank you very much…?
Heehee… nervous, huh? It’s fine. Just relax your shoulders…
Janet closes eyes.
Doctor… um, doctor… do you think you can make me better?
Of course! Form now on, you’ll never suffer again… so take it easy. And go to sleep…
In meantime, Maria in different room sighs.
It does run in the family…
Oooh, credits! So it is The End. But… I’m not sure this is good ending… not at all.
Anyway, after returning to main screen, we now have not outline, but grayscale picture of Aya.
So… all that’s left is finishing game with all gems, huh?
See you one last time in future.
