First night: "Between Life and Death"[edit | edit source]

Koudelkahead.jpg [My hometown is a village in Wales. It was a small village named Taliesin near a riverbank.
When I was born, I was loved by everyone in the village. In a village that was not blessed by a childbirth for a long time, a long awaited child was born.

Zlato - a "treasure".
That was the name given to me.
But I couldn't fulfill the expectations given by such a name.
Between life and death. At any time, all that is left to me is to survive.
A girl that attracts death and ghosts.
This is me, Koudelka Iasant.]

Koudelka. Night one: Between Life and Death.

(Koudelka's Mother)

Koudelka...Koudelka!
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Mama!
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

Where are you?
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Mama!
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

Koudelka. There you are, Koudelka.
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Mama?
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

Now die!
[Sounds of a scuffle are heard]
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

*Sobbing* M-Mama, why!?
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

Cursed child! You!
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

No! I-...Mama, stop!
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

It was nice that you were born. It'd be nicer still if you died!
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Mama! Mama!
[Koudelka awakes with a start.
It was a dream.
The wheels of a moving cart are heard.]
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Hey, miss! What happened? Did you have a nightmare?
Koudelkahead.jpg No...It was nothing.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

You sure? Seemed like you were having a real bad dream.
Koudelkahead.jpg Honestly, it was nothing.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

...Alright then.
[The cart abruptly halts.]
Koudelkahead.jpg What's happening?
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Sorry, I can only go this far. If we keep going this way, the only thing we'll reach before nightfall is a ruined village.
Koudelkahead.jpg Ruins? That's perfect.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

You don't care? Don't you know? "They" appear there.
Koudelkahead.jpg Thieves?
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

No, far more distrubing. Ghosts.
Koudelkahead.jpg Ghosts?
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

That's what people say. That's why, don't get me wrong, you'd better avoid that too. All right?
Koudelkahead.jpg I'll go.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Eh?
Koudelkahead.jpg Thanks for the ride.
[Koudelka hops off the cart.]
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Hey! Hey, wait! ...Well, it's not any of my concern from now on.
Koudelkahead.jpg [That night I stayed in a shed in the village I arrived at.
The darkness of the night is the world where I live.

A world colored by the shadows of death is the most familiar to me.
But it's the world I hate the most.]

Elainehead.jpg ...Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg Again!
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg Go away! Go away!
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg [I see her.
She first appeared before me a few months back.
A ghost of the woman that tries to tell me something.
All I know about her

is that her name is Elaine, that's all.]

What? What do you want from me?

Elainehead.jpg Help me...
Koudelkahead.jpg Help you? I'm sorry, but there's no one here who could help you.
Elainehead.jpg Please... Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg What do you want? Do you think I can do something? You. Are. Dead. So go to heaven or hell, already!
Elainehead.jpg I can't...Save me...Only you...me...Patri...
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop it! I can't do anything! I'm not the one ghosts like you should be talking to.
Elainehead.jpg Please...
Koudelkahead.jpg Don't come near me!
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg Go away!
Elainehead.jpg Please...
Koudelkahead.jpg Go away! Why!? Why me? Even though I can't do anything.
[Elaine fades away. But Koudelka hears the sound of movement.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Who is it? I know you're there. Who are you?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Don't be mad" I'm going away already.
Koudelkahead.jpg A girl? Why are you in a place like this?
Don't be scared. I won't hurt you.
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

...Who are you, lady?*
Koudelkahead.jpg My name is Koudelka.
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Unusual name. Are you foreign?
Koudelkahead.jpg Not really. I am traveling though. From far away.
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Really? I'm Alicia.
Koudelkahead.jpg Alicia?

Say, what are you doing out here? Where's your home?

BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

My house is nearby. Here is my secret playground.
Koudelkahead.jpg Here? But this place is a...
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Actually, my mom and dad know about it.
You know, I made my dad angry and hid here, and then mom came out and said: "He's not mad anymore, you can come back".
Where are your mom and dad?
Koudelkahead.jpg Mine?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

You don't have them?
Koudelkahead.jpg I do, but they're very, very far away.
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Hmmmm ... So, what kind of people they are?
Koudelkahead.jpg My mom and dad, they were very kind. I loved them dearly, but...
[Koudelka has a flashback.]
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

If only you hadn't been born...you...
[Present day.]
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

What is it?
Koudelkahead.jpg It's nothing.
That's right. Where are your parents? Being out so late in a place like this...
Aren't they worried?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

No. Mom and dad said to "Wait here".
Koudelkahead.jpg Here?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Yeah, dad decided to go to a place far away from here, to a place that people from this village don't know.

The villagers all hate me.
They're all mean to me, even though I didn't do anything.
They're mean to mom and dad too.
Always making Mom cry. That's why we're gonna leave and go to a new place.
That's why I've been waiting all this time. Because they promised they'll surely come for me.
But... But they still haven't come.
And then here...
I was in flames...

Koudelkahead.jpg Alicia?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

It was hot - so hot...
I heard mom and dad outside. They were both crying.
I wanted to go to them. But...I couldn't move.
And then flames were gone. And I waited.
But... Mom and dad didn't come.
And a long time since then, many people not from this village came here.
But when they saw me, they went away.

Koudelka, Don't go away. Don't go away. Don't go away!

Koudelkahead.jpg This child...
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Why does everyone leave me!?
Koudelkahead.jpg She's not human!
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

I can't stand it anymore! Nooooo!

Second night: "The Other Me"[edit | edit source]

Koudelkahead.jpg She's not human!
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Nooooo!
[The sound of flames is heard]
Koudelkahead.jpg [A ghost.
This child is a real ghost.
But, when I noticed, it was already too late.
The growing flames, as if they were alive, burning the shed around me.]

Gotta get outside! No, the flames! I'll die if I stay here.
Die...
That's right, I can die here. And go to the place where Mom and Dad are.

[Koudelka has a flashback.
Villagers talk over one another.]
BlankCrowdHead.jpg

(Villagers)

It can't be true. She foretold her father's death. This girl...

It was not a prophecy. This girl, this girl attracts death!

Death-bringer!

This is horrifying! The child is cursed!

A devil-child!

We need to kill her! Right now!

Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

I-I don't understand. A devil? Why? Why me!?
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Koudelka's Mother)

Koudelka. My...Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Mama! I... why me!?
BlankCrowdHead.jpg

(Villagers)

It is the decision of the elders. We have to expel Koudelka from the tribe.

Expel her! Go away!

Never show yourself before us again!

Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

W-why can't we all be together?
I don't need these powers. I don't want these powers.
Why? Why? Don't cast me out!
[Present day.]
Koudelkahead.jpg [9 years have passed since then.
It's been so long.
I've lived all that time. And that's not been a good thing at all.
I'm so tired.]
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

Help!
Koudelkahead.jpg This voice... Whose is it?
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

This girl doesn't know anything!
Koudelkahead.jpg Is this...
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

-doesn't know anything!
Koudelkahead.jpg The memories of that girl?
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

Please! Someone! My child!
BlankCrowdHead.jpg

(Villagers)

The child is cursed! We cannot let her get out!
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

Alicia! Alicia!
Koudelkahead.jpg This girl-
BlankFemaleHead.jpg

(Alicia's Mother)

Help!
Koudelkahead.jpg She had powers others don't have.
The villagers were scared and persecuted her.
That's why they were going to run away.
But, they couldn't.
The villagers burned the shed where Alicia hid herself.
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

No!
Koudelkahead.jpg No! I can't do anything! I can only watch. I can't do anything. *Cries*
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Don't leave me alone!
[Flashback]
Koudelkahead.jpg

(Child Koudelka)

Don't leave me alone!
[Present day.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Papa...Mama...
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Please everyone, don't cast me away!
[The voice of child Koudelka briefly merges with Alicia]
BlankGirlKoudelkaHead.jpg

(Alicia/Child Koudelka)

Don't leave me alone!
Koudelkahead.jpg It's me.
This girl is me!

[I didn't think. I embraced that girl without thinking. I didn't even care that my body was burning.]

BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg That's right. You wanted to live, right? With everyone?
You didn't want all these powers, right?
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Don't go away! I don't want to be alone!
Koudelkahead.jpg You're not alone! You are not alone!
BlankGirlHead.jpg

(Alicia)

Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg I'll always be with you! Dear God! Please, save this girl! I pray to you for the first time. God!
[Mystical sounds are heard before fading. The sound of flames also fades, leaving silence.]
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka...Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg M-mama?
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka.
Koudelkahead.jpg Elaine!? Am I still alive?
B-but I was in flames - And my body isn't burning anymore!
Alicia?
Elainehead.jpg She's no longer here. You saved her.
Koudelkahead.jpg I did?
Elainehead.jpg ...saved her...With your power...
Koudelkahead.jpg I did? I've saved Alicia? Did you know I could? Is that why you've appeared before me?
Elainehead.jpg No-one else, but you...
Koudelkahead.jpg And you are suffering like that too? No one else, but me?
Elainehead.jpg No-one else, but you...
Koudelkahead.jpg [The sunrise came.
Elaine's shade disappeared in the morning light.
And, around me, the shed was burnt down.
As if it was so for ages. Tarnished by the years.]
[The sound of approaching cartwheels is heard]
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Hey, Miss! So you are safe.
Koudelkahead.jpg Why're you here?
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

I was worried, is all.
Koudelkahead.jpg Thank you. But I'm all right. I did see a cute ghost though.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

C-cute? So ghosts really are here?
Koudelkahead.jpg I wonder...could you do me a favor? There's a place I want to go to.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Wait, yesterday you said to just go as far as I was.
Koudelkahead.jpg I've just remembered something. Had a change of plans.
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Hm, well whatever. Get on.
Koudelkahead.jpg Thank you!
BlankMaleHead.jpg

(Cart Driver)

Where are we going?
Koudelkahead.jpg To Wales.

[Wales. To the Nemeton monastery.
The place where Elaine awaits.
My goal.
I don't know exactly what is waiting for me there, but I have no doubts anymore.
Mama, I'm sorry, I won't join you justyet.
There's a person waiting for me.
Because now I know that my powers can save people.

Third night: "The Prison of the Soul"[edit | edit source]

Edwardhead.jpg [At that time, the door to death appeared before me.
In some monastery in an unknown land, I was attacked by a monster.
What a mess.
I took the words of some criminal seriously and found myself in a place like this.
For a man like me, it may be an orderly death.
Although, in that moment, before my eyes appeared-]

An angel? I don't expect you to take me to heaven, but can you at pray for me at least?

Koudelkahead.jpg Too bad. What? Pray for you?
Edwardhead.jpg [Having said this, the woman healed my wounds with a strange power.
To judge her by her face, she's like an angel.
But inside, far, far from that.
A bitch that isn't likely to be friendly, I thought.

The people I met at the monastery, is the bitch that saved me, and the other is the obnoxious priest.
We acted together only because we had the same goal.
And there was another that we couldn't allow to join us.

His name is Alias, he said-]

Aliashead.jpg Please, Father James! It wasn't me. Help!
Jameshead.jpg As if we can trust you! A criminal!
Edwardhead.jpg I believe this guy. Thieves can be exceedingly honest, you know? Just gotta be careful.
Jameshead.jpg We can't rely on that. Edward, you are one of these criminals-
Edwardhead.jpg Yeah. Criminals understand other criminals feelings.
Aliashead.jpg D-do you forgive me? Thank you!
Edwardhead.jpg Just gotta be careful.
[Edward shoot Alias]
Koudelkahead.jpg You!
Jameshead.jpg Why did y-!?
Edwardhead.jpg If our lives cease being threatened, then it’s a victory for God and all his glory, right?
But if we go on letting him attack us, then the filthy godless pagans win.
Which you would like to bet on?
Koudelkahead.jpg Would you go to hell?
Edwardhead.jpg Good idea. That's my plan. Having no money an' all.
Jameshead.jpg What a terrifying man...
Edwardhead.jpg Say whatever you like, it's pointless.
Jameshead.jpg “Do all men kill the things they do not love.”
Edwardhead.jpg “Hate any man the things he would not kill.”
Jameshead.jpg Shakespeare? You're smarter than you look...
Edwardhead.jpg You can say what you like.

[Many things have happened since then, and so we gradually uncovered the mystery of this monastery.
And one woman, the one that guided Koudelka...
The turning point was when we met her ghost.
It was the time the goals of the three people became one. And as for James-]

Jameshead.jpg *Despairing* Elaine! Elaine! Why? Why!?
Edwardhead.jpg [Elaine was the wife of the owner of this monastery, Patrick Heyworth.
She was killed by thieves, and is not in the world of the living any longer.
I don't know what she was to him. But I understand only this: when she died, everything he cherished was gone.]
Koudelkahead.jpg James...
Jameshead.jpg Please...Leave me alone for a while.
Edwardhead.jpg Koudelka, let's go.
Koudelkahead.jpg Alright.
[The pair wait outside while James grieves.]
Edwardhead.jpg What's he doing in there?
Koudelkahead.jpg He's praying for Elaine...and for Patrick.
Edwardhead.jpg It's not like it's his grave.
Koudelkahead.jpg It doesn't matter. They're here. The dead. Everyone.
Edwardhead.jpg Oh really?
But I don't understand: why pray for him? You heard it: to resurrect Elaine, Patrick sacrificed dozens of people.
People who had nothing to do with all this.
Koudelkahead.jpg Patrick understood that he won't be forgiven.
But he couldn't stop.
He believed it was all for Elaine.
Elaine wanted to save him. Maybe that's why she called me?
Edwardhead.jpg You're too kind! I think-
Koudelkahead.jpg Yes, you.
Edwardhead.jpg Me?
Koudelkahead.jpg Yes. I thought you were a barbarian when you killed without hesitation.
But then you cited Shakespeare and Byron.
I thought you wanted treasure.
But you don't look at these things.
Who are you? What are you doing here?
Edwardhead.jpg

I'm searching. What for is a secret. But, more importantly, I like it here. It's close to the world I desire.

Koudelkahead.jpg The world you desire?
Edwardhead.jpg As a kid, I had dreams. To explore the wild west, unknown jungles.
Glorious adventures!
That's why I left home and wandered this land. But I got to know only one thing:
the land of adventures is not anywhere in this country anymore. However, somehow, only here is different.
Koudelkahead.jpg How?
Edwardhead.jpg There's adventure here! Thrills! What makes a man!
In the world I lived in before, I couldn't have a taste of that. Comparing to that boring place, its' pretty good here.
Koudelkahead.jpg *Laughs mockingly*
Edwardhead.jpg What's so funny?
Koudelkahead.jpg *Stops laughing*
The world you desired? Here?
But it suits you. For you, who thinks nothing of a human life. You want some advice on how to stay here forever? Die!
[Koudelka continues to mock and admonish Edward in the background.]
Edwardhead.jpg [This voice that mocks me, I feel such sadness in it.
It made me think she knows everything about this world, looks at it everyday and has come to know its many griefs and sorrows.]
Koudelkahead.jpg -do yourself a favour; just die!
Edwardhead.jpg Wait!
Koudelkahead.jpg What?
Edwardhead.jpg Come closer. Something's here.
Koudelkahead.jpg What is it?
Edwardhead.jpg You feel it too?
Koudelkahead.jpg This feeling...what-
[Monster growls are heard.
Alias' voice periodically switches between normal and monsterous]
AliasHeadDead.jpg *Growling* Whhhaa...Yooouu!
Edwardhead.jpg You! It can't be!
AliasHeadDead.jpg I-I don't understand! Am I alive!?
My body hurts! It doesn't move! M-my body...
Why?
AAAAArgh! My hand!
......I remember!
You...me?
Koudelkahead.jpg His body's falling apart!
AliasHeadDead.jpg Yes! It was you!
Edwardhead.jpg I thought you gave up, but you became a monster!
Koudelkahead.jpg No, he's-
[Koudelka begins to experience a psychic vision
Edward shoots at Alias]
AliasHeadDead.jpg Argh! Shit! Shit!
Edwardhead.jpg I thought you gave up, but you're just a monster!
Koudelkahead.jpg *Mumbling*
Edwardhead.jpg Koudelka?
Koudelkaheadaliaspossesed.jpg *Speaking with Alias' human voice* It's dark. Where am I? Cold...Someone-
[Edward tries to drag Koudelka away.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Leave me and run!
Edwardhead.jpg At that time I understood.
The glorious adventure that I imagined in my heart, a shining romance.
When it becomes a reality, a bigger thing emerged to grasp my heart.
It wasn't a dream or a hope.
Fear.
Yes, fear.

Fourth Night: "That Which We Protect"[edit | edit source]

Edwardhead.jpg You awake?
Koudelkahead.jpg Hm? W-where are we?
Edwardhead.jpg Just what it looks like; an execution chamber. No place for a sleeping beauty to wake up.
Koudelkahead.jpg An execution chamber? The monster!? Where is it?
Edwardhead.jpg Don't shout! It'll find us.
It's still here. And just what is it? My gun's no use. It's unlike any monster we've met before.
Koudelkahead.jpg You know the history of this place, right? Before it became a monastery?
Edwardhead.jpg It was a prison, right?
Koudelkahead.jpg Yeah. Where many people were executed.
Not just them, but also the people Patrick killed. They've become spirits and are wandering here.
Edwardhead.jpg What do you mean?
Koudelkahead.jpg You still don't get it? That monster is gathering the spirits. Within the voice of the monster, I could hear their cries of sorrow. I couldn't bear it.
Edwardhead.jpg So it's a bundle of grief and rage, right?
Koudelkahead.jpg ...I wonder how James is doing?
Edwardhead.jpg He's under God's protection. But now's not the time to worry about others. We're just waiting to be killed if we stay here. We need to do something.
Koudelkahead.jpg It'll end the same way, anyway, if we stay in this monastery, soon or later...
Edwardhead.jpg So what? That's no joke. If we stay here, we'll die for sure! Aren't you afraid?
Koudelkahead.jpg Afraid? What scares me most is this world. And regular people.
Edwardhead.jpg What do you mean? You live as you like. You have powers people don't have. I don't understand - I'm envious of such a life.
Koudelkahead.jpg If you want this power, I'll give it to you any time!
Because of this "power" this world is hell for me! Everyone, who came to know about this power, started to hate me.
Even my own mom and dad.
Many times I thought about just ending it to go where mom and dad are.
...But I knew. Even if I committed suicide, I'll still end up just wandering this world. There is no salvation for me! *Starts to cry*
Edwardhead.jpg Koudelka...
[At that time, I understood finally why she is sorrowful. She has not only just seen the world of the dead. She couldn't stop seeing it. Even if the soul is in this world, it has no place to stay. For her, the power was only a burden.]
Koudelka...
Koudelkahead.jpg Don't touch me!
[Koudelka begins to experience another psychic vision
Alias can be heard coming towards them.]
Edwardhead.jpg What? It can't be!
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop this!
Edwardhead.jpg It's here!
Koudelkahead.jpg Leave without me!
Edwardhead.jpg Let's run. Together!
AliasHeadDead.jpg There you are!
Edwardhead.jpg You're late, monster.
Koudelkahead.jpg Go! Leave me!
Edwardhead.jpg I'm not the sorta guy who leaves a girl behind!
Koudelkahead.jpg Idiot! It's no time to play cool. You'll die for real!
[Edward shoots monster Alias until he runs out of bullet.
Alias slams Edward into the wall and begins choking him.] can be heard coming towards them.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop this!
Edwardhead.jpg *Choking* R-run, quick!
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop!
[Mystical sounds are heard.]
Edwardhead.jpg What's-? A light? Where...from?
AliasHeadDead.jpg Uh? Aaah...
Edwardhead.jpg [The underground room, where even the dimmest light didn't exist, was filled with a blinding light.
When I was losing consciousness I saw a monster, out of power, and her form, giving a thoughtful prayer.]
Koudelkahead.jpg I'm sorry. This is all I can do.
Aliashead.jpg My body...is falling apart. But, this light...so soft...
[Alias vanishes, and the mystical sounds fade.]
Edwardhead.jpg ...Do monsters go to heaven when they're purified?
[Edward faints.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Edward! Edward!
Edwardhead.jpg ...Am I on the other side? Because I'm looking at an angel.
Koudelkahead.jpg Why didn't you run?
Edwardhead.jpg I wanted to show you my good side. Anyhow, did you do that?
Koudelkahead.jpg I don't know. I just prayed without thinking.
Edwardhead.jpg Huh? A real angel. That's a handy thing to have. Too early to die yet.

[If the world is a gamble, my life before was full of losses. But now its different. This gamble is real; ahuge gamble. I'll make sure I win. I finally found what I really want to protect.]

Fifth Night: "Opposing the Lord, for a Moment..."[edit | edit source]

Jameshead.jpg The Émigré document: a forbidden document on the methods for immortality and resurrection.

Someone stole it from Vatican, and my goal was to return it.
But when I learnt who took it, one more goal appeared for me.
To meet once again with the past that I have abandoned. That I had to abandon.
The owner of the monastery, Patrick, my best friend. And his wife, Elaine, the woman I loved.

Elainehead.jpg Please, James. Do not grieve my death. What that man has done to return me, was a mistake.
Death is the will of the God. Please don't be sad.
Please, somehow, destroy my body.
Jameshead.jpg [I promised to grant her wish. If that is what her wish is. But...]
[The sound of bullets ricocheting on thick metal is heard.
Koudelka shrieks.]
Koudelkahead.jpg That's dangerous! What if you hit me?
Edwardhead.jpg What else can I do? Ah, it'sNo use! Even using the gun, it won't budge.
Koudelkahead.jpg What else can we do? If we can't pass here, we can't do anything.
Edwardhead.jpg Don't think my punches would do much either.
Koudelkahead.jpg Have we got something that can blow it open?
Edwardhead.jpg Well, we don't have explosives handy. Looks like there's nothing we can do.
Koudelkahead.jpg To have came so far, with the temple just on the other side!
Jameshead.jpg There are explosives. There were chemicals in the laboratory. If I use those, I can synthesize something.
Koudelkahead.jpg You can make explosives?
Jameshead.jpg I know how.
Koudelkahead.jpg But...
Edwardhead.jpg I get it. I get it. We can do nothing but trust you now.
[James begins to walk away.]
Jameshead.jpg Wait here. I'll make it right away.
Koudelkahead.jpg Okay, I'll help. I don't want you to do this alone-
Jameshead.jpg No! I can do it alone!
Koudelkahead.jpg James...
[James slams a door shut.]
Edwardhead.jpg Whatever. We'll just wait here then.
Koudelkahead.jpg Yes, but...
[The sound of someone flipping pages through a book is heard.]
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Hm...Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho! For lunch? Dried? Really, the curiosity of humans have no limits!
They keep inventing interesting things. But they still have a way to go. Compared to things I made, this is just child's play.
Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho!
[James opens a door.]
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Who is it? Who is so tactless to interfere with my studies?
Jameshead.jpg It's me.
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg You? What is it, forgot something?
Jameshead.jpg I want to ask you something, Roger Bacon.
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Mmmm? Ask? A Bishop like you? What could you possibly ask a senile old fool, who was forsaken by the Lord so long ago?
Jameshead.jpg What if, just what if... Just maybe a secret method exists...is it possible to return the soul to the resurrected body?
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg A soul... soul? Ho-ho-ho-ho-ho! So, that means you-
Jameshead.jpg I want to resurrect Elaine once more.
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Some pretty horrifying things you're saying. I wouldn't expect that from a priest.
Jameshead.jpg I am asking you! Please answer!
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Hmm... I have not tried that. I have only tried the technique for immortality.
I've never thought to go that far.
However, I remember; to pursue that path is to refuse the heavens, and turn your back to your Lord.
Jameshead.jpg Turn my back to the Lord?
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg He-he-he, and interesting experiment, isn't it?
Having traveled the world for few centuries, I saw many things. However, there are some things I do not understand.
The soul!
Neither chemistry, not occultism can return the soul to the body.
...
The Émigré document is here. Would you open the door to the God?
Jameshead.jpg I... I......Everything I believed in God for...If I turn my back to the Lord-
[Koudelka bursts into the room.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop!
Jameshead.jpg Koudelka!
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg Oooooh! A distraction!
Koudelkahead.jpg What are you trying to achieve with this? You can't be serious...
Jameshead.jpg Be silent!
Koudelkahead.jpg Do you understand what you're trying to do? Your friend was going to do the same thing. You heard Elaine's will, right?
Jameshead.jpg Her will, you say? If we destroy her body, we won't be able to bring her back. How can I allow that?
Koudelkahead.jpg She died! A long time ago.
Jameshead.jpg So what? To accept this? If you were me, could you accept this?
Killed? By criminals?
But she had committed no sins. Kinder than anyone, and full of compassion. She loved God and people.
Why did she have to die? I will oppose my Lord! By opposing him, I will-
Koudelkahead.jpg Are you serious? Your friend is making Elaine suffer, and you want to do the same thing!?
Jameshead.jpg Who can blame him? He loved Elaine, almost as much as I do, maybe more.
That is why he tried to resurrect her, by giving up all he had.
Koudelkahead.jpg And he killed a lot of people!
Jameshead.jpg They were of no consequence; they were prostitutes and lowlifes!
Of the sort who killed Elaine - worthless lot.
When they die, no one grieves!
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg As usual, human emotions cloud their brains. This hasn't changed across the centuries.
Koudelkahead.jpg To you, I'm like them too. For you, I'm a worthless human being. But Elaine spoke to me! Listen to her!
Jameshead.jpg Shut up!
[James angrily sweeps books and papers off a table]
Jameshead.jpg Someone like you...to be addressed by Elaine? A lie! You're lying!
Koudelkahead.jpg No. It's true. I-
Jameshead.jpg Shut up! Shut up! Why you...*sobs*
Koudelkahead.jpg James...
Jameshead.jpg ...I understand, there is no Elaine anymore.
More then 20 years ago I wanted to talk to Patrick and Elaine.
But with of a lowly heritage and no wealth, I had no confidence I could make her happy.
Why do you think I followed the path of God?
For her! To forget her.
...But I couldn't forget her. I prayed for her happiness, and even then-
Koudelkahead.jpg That...has nothing to do with this. You are blaming God for your own sake!
Jameshead.jpg You! Just what do you know!
Koudelkahead.jpg James, what are you-
Jameshead.jpg Elaine, wait for me. This time, I'll-
Koudelkahead.jpg Stop! James! Stop!
[The sound of loud church bells is heard.]
Jameshead.jpg [Koudelka and I touched the document at the same time.
In that instant, the surroundings warped and another world became real.
Is it her power or my thoughts causing this? I don't know.]
Koudelkahead.jpg What happened? Where are we?
Jameshead.jpg This place...
Koudelkahead.jpg Do you know it?
Jameshead.jpg Yes, I do.
[This is the place of my dearest memories. Where I spent with Patrick and Elaine.]

Sixth Night: "In Distant Memory..."[edit | edit source]

[The sound of loud church bells is heard.]
Koudelkahead.jpg James, do you know this place?
Jameshead.jpg There's no way I could forget it. This is the university I studied at.
The university where I was with Patrick and Elaine.
Koudelkahead.jpg No way!
Jameshead.jpg Hahaha, this brings back so many memories.
Everything is just as it was then.
Koudelkahead.jpg Someone's here. They're-
Jameshead.jpg Patrick! Elaine! And me, from that time!?
Koudelkahead.jpg From that time...
Jameshead.jpg It was an enjoyable time. For me, that time was the most...Elaine!
Koudelkahead.jpg James.
Jameshead.jpg Elaine!
Patrickhead.jpg

(Younger Patrick)

-James, why?
Jameshead.jpg

(Younger James)

No reason. It is what I want, Patrick
Patrickhead.jpg

(Younger Patrick)

Really...
Elainehead.jpg

(Younger Elaine)

James!
Jameshead.jpg

(Younger James)

Elaine!
Elainehead.jpg

(Younger Elaine)

Why!?
Jameshead.jpg

(Younger James)

I'm sorry.
Elainehead.jpg

(Younger Elaine)

James!
Jameshead.jpg That's wrong! I had no choice. I wanted to turn back and embrace her right away!
Patrickhead.jpg Elaine did too.
Jameshead.jpg Patrick!? You-
Patrickhead.jpg She loved you. Even more than me.
Jameshead.jpg Me?
Patrickhead.jpg I always knew it. Your resolve.
That's why it was hard.
I hid my hatred for you...
But I loved her, that is why I felt I didn't want to lose to you!
But I ignored her feelings...
Jameshead.jpg Patrick...
Patrickhead.jpg When she was killed, I searched for a way to resurrect her.
I'm sorry.
I wanted to make Elaine happy after you abandoned her.
And, at last, I found it.
Jameshead.jpg The Émigré document.
Patrickhead.jpg Yes. But as a result, I just made her suffer more.
All I did was make her suffer. Due to my error, even the peace of the death was stolen from her.
I'm just a coward like you.
When she became a monster due to my actions, and stood before me, I was so despairing I didn't even tried to save myself.
Jameshead.jpg Stop it! What should I do? What should I do?!
Patrickhead.jpg Please, carry out her wish.
Jameshead.jpg There has to be another way!
Patrickhead.jpg It is the only way to save her! Return to her the peace I stole.
Jameshead.jpg Patrick! Patrick!
[Patrick fades away, and mystic sounds are heard.]
Koudelkahead.jpg What's happening now?
Elainehead.jpg Koudelka.
Koudelkahead.jpg You? Is this a dream?
Elainehead.jpg A dream. A reality. A memory, that remained in him.
Koudelkahead.jpg A psychic impression? So I'm in-
Elainehead.jpg In his memories.
Koudelkahead.jpg ...Why did you choose me? Was it because of my powers?
Elainehead.jpg No.
Koudelkahead.jpg Then why?
Elainehead.jpg Because you are a kind person.
Koudelkahead.jpg Me?
Elainehead.jpg I've been watching you for a while. I saw when you saved that girl in the village. Since you can't live with humans, you value and appreciate them more.
Koudelkahead.jpg I do?
Jameshead.jpg Elaine!
Elainehead.jpg Father O'Flaherty. James.
Jameshead.jpg I'm sorry! I was about to make you suffer more...
Elainehead.jpg You understand now. James, I-
[Strange sounds are heard.]
Jameshead.jpg What's happening!
Koudelkahead.jpg The space is vanishing.
Elainehead.jpg This is just a shard of memory.
It doesn't last long. But it's all right.
However happy the moment is, it will surely pass and be no more.
Farewell. James, Koudelka.
Jameshead.jpg Elaine, can't you-
Elainehead.jpg No, we can't.
Jameshead.jpg Why?
Elainehead.jpg We are a memory. Nothing more.
Jameshead.jpg No, no! We'll go together... Wait! I have so much to tell!
[Koudelka grabs James.]
Jameshead.jpg What are you doing? Let me go!
Koudelkahead.jpg Do you wish to die? If you're lured in by spirit, you can't return.
Jameshead.jpg I don't care, I can't stay in a world without Elaine. Elaine!
Elainehead.jpg Please, destroy my body!
Jameshead.jpg Elaaaaaaine!
[The dream world vanishes.
Koudelka and James are standning back in Roger's study.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Uh...
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg So, have you finished talking?
Koudelkahead.jpg Roger? We're back in the study.
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg So what will you do? Will you use the Émigré document?
Koudelkahead.jpg Roger! James has already-
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg The only one to decide will be the priest over here. So, what it is to be?
Jameshead.jpg ...Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. That is Elaine's wish.
Rogerkoudelklahead.jpg What? Oh! All right then.
Although, just a moment, I had been expecting you to say otherwise.
This too is due to human curiosity. Hohohoho!
Jameshead.jpg Koudelka.
Koudelkahead.jpg Hm?
Jameshead.jpg The Elaine that appeared before you...What was she like?
Koudelkahead.jpg She seemed sad. But had a very kind face.
Jameshead.jpg So that's how it is.
Koudelkahead.jpg Where are you going?
Jameshead.jpg The explosive. Wait here. I will do it quickly.
Koudelkahead.jpg Should I help?
Jameshead.jpg I am fine, alone. This time.
[Later.
There is the sound of a gunshot, and an explosion, leaving a distant crackle of flames.]
Jameshead.jpg Ready? There is no guarantee we come back.
Koudelkahead.jpg 100 percent. What about you, Edward?
Edwardhead.jpg I told you. I won't stop until I win the gamble.
[Church bells chime the hour.]
Koudelkahead.jpg Bells! So appropriate.
Edwardhead.jpg "I go, and it is done; the bell invites me."
Jameshead.jpg "Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell that summons thee to heaven or to hell."
Koudelkahead.jpg What?
Edwardhead.jpg Macbeth. So which do you think it is?*
Jameshead.jpg I don't care. Elaine waits over there.
Is it an end, or a beginning?
I don't know. But I do not hesitate anymore.
I love you, Elaine.
