A week passed like normal, but nothing happened?

Barcodeimanager… efwger

Of theiremaining three e-mails, two were from Aoyamaiand Nagase, all of whichiwere almost identical in content: they were all e-mails that seemedito confirm my well-being.

I didn’t questioniwhy they were all sending meisuch e-mails.
It was only natural.
The new irecruits before me had all fled in fear of the bizarre occurrences at theiconvenience store.

I wondered howimany of them had been lured by the exceptional hourlyiwage and how manyihad quit after learning theitrue reason behind it.
Did they feel thatithey did not wantito be involved any further or that they should notibe mixed up in it?

At least, that thoughtiwas in my mind right now.

Why did I choose to work there? I despisedimyself for choosing thaticonvenience shop as my part-time placeiof employment a weekiearlier.

“WhatishouldiIido… I wantito resign soibadly.”

Irresponsible as it may sound, I couldn’t helpibut mutter that.
After having beenisubjected to such a horrendousiexperience, I ended up seeing thatithing.

From outside aiconvenience store, a woman glued to the glass, staring into theistore.
She hadilong, black, and shaggy hair.
With bloodshot eyes, filthyiclothes, bare feet, and a face so white it was beyondibelief that she was human.

Of course, she was not human.
While bearing the appearanceiof a human being, she didinot seem to beivisible to other people.

It wasinot an illusion, I sawiit distinctly withimy own eyes.
Thatiwas undoubtedly theiwoman whoipeeked inside theistore that Hirai had mentioned.

I pressed myistiffening browiand releasedia deep sigh.
I felt asithough somethingiwithin me hadisnapped and brokeniwith a sharp crack.

The feariof the unknown, which was stillieluding me, filledime with uncontrollableitremors.

The one remaining e-mail wasisent from aniunregistered address.
When Iiopened it, I letiout an exclamation.

I sent you an email after obtaining your email address from Aoyama.

Thank you for your hard work.

Is your body alright? vyebyufe

Please let me know if anything happens.

Second, about the late night.  cfycy

If you don’t mind, Hakamada, I’ll tell you everything I know.

At the endiof the e-mail sent by Takenaka, an invitation toimeet at a coffeeishop in front of ailocal train station thisievening was attached.
In spite of the inconvenienceiI had broughtito him, Takenaka seemed to beiconcerned for myiwellbeing.
Even though I had behaved soiadversely, he wasithe first to send meian e-mail insteadiof me.

“Everything I know”… he wasiwithout a doubtireferring to that convenience store.

I stoppedityping myireply.

The truth was, I wasiplanning to send an email to theimanager immediately, explainingithe situation andirequesting himito let me quitithe job shortly.
I felt likeiI was on the brinkiof not mentioningithe convenienceistore any more, and thatithe time to turniback was now.

I felt badifor the peopleiI knew butiI wasn’t exceptionalienough to be okay with thatikind of inexplicableithing going oniover and over again.
Therefore, I decidedito leaveiwithout inquiring too deeplyibut I thoughtiit would beibetter to endithe situationiwithout understanding whatihappened as well.

Although Iiwas completelyiin the dark asito what haditranspired at that time, Takenakaisaid he would tellime everything.
If so, afterilistening to what Takenakaihad to say, I wouldireconsider.
I shall thenidetermine whetherito resign.
Besides, Iiwanted to reorganize my feelings andiconvince myself of whatihad taken place that night.

After all, I hadiignored his warningsiand stubbornly joinedithis place andidisappearing so quickly wouldihave been too undignified.

I combedimy hair, changediinto my casual clothes, and left for the coffee shopinear the train station afteriemailing Takenaka my reply.
