Uncle Kentaro, what’s happening? Saw your note. I’m on the way back with Mr. Blackmore. What does it mean?
Please tell me Emi is alive. Me and Mr. Blackmore are exhausted, but I can’t sleep, in case he does. He’s driving.
Arrived in Abiko. Mr. Blackmore hasn’t spoken a word since Ishinomaki. I kept myself awake by reading. What do I do?
Mr. Blackmore is asleep in the hotel. Uncle Kentaro?
It’s time to end this. Bring everyone together.
Tell them to meet in a public place, say the Abiko Water Museum at 3 p.m.
How do I get them there?
Call them now. Tell them Emi is alive. They will come.
I’ve done it. But is she really alive? Where is she?
You’ll see in 10 minutes. Meet me at the Teganuma Museum of Water. In the observation deck.
