Chapter 3 (Kaidan to Odorō, Soshite Anata wa Kaidan de Odoru)
The police arrive at school to investigate Miyoko's attack. They find that she fell over an outside stairwell and landed on a shovel embedded in the ground. While alive, she has since fallen unconscious. Tomohiro's aunt, Yuka Miyajima, serves as head investigator on the case and asks him for information about Miyoko. She speculates that the person responsible for the attack is somehow linked to the origins of the "curse of Ohone-sama". Tomohiro, Tooru, and Hiroyuki decide they have to find the culprit themselves in order to prevent the truth of the curse from getting out.
