While the girls enjoy telling horror stories, the girls become spooked with the lights going out.
In the beginning, we see a lady finding a little fox girl, which is Yuzu abandoned in the snow. After taking the girl to the temple, she takes care of it. Of course, the fox girl acts like an animal. She growls and causes trouble such as spreading raked leaves with her tail. Eventually, the lady names her. More on this later.
During the night, Kiri told a story about a lonely girl who wants to make friends. She wonders if she is the reason she can’t make any friends. Eventually, she decides to erase herself so she can become some else. She believes that this can make people like her. Of course, it ends up having the opposite effect of scaring people. Shortly after, Ookami went into the room on ask why they are still up. The funny thing is the girl from the story actually shows up and manages to blow out all the lights.
After the girls become terrified with the light gone, the girls eventually split up to bring back the lights. Satsuki comes into the room to find out what happen. Shortly after, the girls split up to turn the lights back on. The funny thing is that their partner is not the actual person they think they are with. In reality, it’s an imposter that tried to be overly romantic as you will see soon.
While Yuzu is with Satusuki goes to light up the room, she saw a full moon. She brings up the mystery of time and thinks that there is a secret hiding somewhere tonight. In addition, she also mentions that she was adopted and raised by a human. When they attempt to walk down the dark hallway, Satsuki becomes scared.
Suddenly, the light went out and Satsuki falls on Yuzu. Then Natsume comes over and wonders why Satsuki is on top of Yuzu. It’s obvious that something is fishy. Maybe this is not the actual Satsuki, but an imposter. Of course, Yuzu doesn’t notice this until later. This also means that the Natsume that Ren is with is also an imposter. It becomes obvious since Natsume wouldn’t think to try to kiss Ren yet. When Ren becomes angry at Natsume for trying to kiss her, Natsume knows nothing about it.
The same thing happens to Satsuki when a fake Kiri tries to kiss her. Thankfully, she punched the imposter before that happened. This is not so surprising since there were two Sakuras before. Sadly, Satsuki accidentally reveals her weakness and the imposter escapes. Even the second try, Kiri let it go. Of course, they noticed that Yuzu is missing. It’s obvious where she went.
While fake Satsuki takes Yuzu to somewhere, she asks why Yuzu decide to follow her despite being an imposter. It’s obvious that Yuzu can’t resist since the imposter looks like Satsuki. It’s clear that Yuzu will eventually realize that the imposter is the girl from the story Kiri told earlier.
With that, Yuzu share about her memories when she is a child being raised by Bikuni. It seems that child Yuzu is clumsy while she worked at the temple. Yohei bullies Yuzu due to the lack of skill she has. It’s understandable why she is annoyed at him since his words are very discouraging, especially when she trips and dumps all the wood on the floor.
It’s obvious that she wants to prove her worth since she doesn’t want Bikuni to kick her out. After overhearing a conversation between a man and Bikuni possibly kicking Yuzu out, she becomes upset. Everyone starts to notice, especially when Yuzu becomes sad after accidentally tipping over a statue.
From the looks of it, Yuzu doesn’t have much confidence in herself and thinks she is useless. She thinks flowers are more useful than her. Thankfully, Bikuni assures Yuzu that she isn’t useless, but rather precious to her. Bikuni only thought about transferring Yuzu because Yohei is bullying her. In the end, she keeps raising Yuzu. She plans to send her to Konohanatei when she is ready to further increase her potential by working with others.
It’s obvious why she gives the answer she did to the ghost girl. She likes everyone because of the things she learned and the memories she made. After all, if she doesn’t end up at the Konohanatei, she wouldn’t have met other girls, especially Satsuki and created memories with them. With that, the ghost girl finally finds her resolve as she departs to the other world. She now knows how it’s like to have friends. Either way, I have to admit it’s nice to learn about the bringing up of Yuzu. After all, if Bikuni never found Yuzu in the snow and decide to raise her, things would be very different. ¶
