[Pouring Rain]

Hans

Huff…

ConneR

You alright?

Hans

Huff... Puff... The mask is so tight... Can barely... breathe...

ConneR

Already getting tired? Guess I overestimated your abilities.

Hans

W-We've already walked several kilometers... C-Can't we rest?

ConneR

Alright. It'll be good to get out of the rain. Based on the direction of the wind, the virus levels should be lower over there. Perhaps we can find a place where we can take off our masks for a while.

ConneR

Water. Take it. Looks like you're about to pass out.

Hans

Thanks... Where are we? So many toppled statues. Feels so eerie...

ConneR

They may be ruined but these pieces far surpass what humans are capable of. Take a look at this seat and the colorful remains of those murals. Don't they look familiar?

Hans

Red seats? ... Ah! They look like the seats in the Node 08 theater...

ConneR

The depth and height of this place, and the pattern of upward spiraling circles. Should be an opera house from one of ancient civilization's prosperous periods. So, there should a lot of sheet music lying around...
[Footsteps]

Hans

Wow! What's this!?

ConneR

Frightened by a mouse, are we? It's just a white mask. Could've been worn by a performer long ago... Have you heard of the classic opera "The Phantom of the Opera"?

Hans

N-No.

ConneR

*sigh*... I should know not to hope that you'd be so cultured...

Hans

I... I'd like to know. Could you tell a little bit about it?

ConneR

Well done. I should applaud your progress... Basically, there's a musical genius who happens to be particularly ugly. So, he lives in the depths of the opera house for many years, hiding from the glaring eyes of society. Yet, he hides in the opera house, disguised as a phantom, so everyone calls him just that, "The Phantom".

Hans

Poor fellow...

ConneR

One day, the phantom discovered a young woman who was gifted with a marvelous voice. So much so that he began to admire her. Slowly, his feelings for the woman consumed him, causing him to harm the innocent, even slaying her lover, thereby turning him into a true ghastly ghost.

Hans

Harming others, for love...

ConneR

Indeed. Ironic, isn't it? Humans are weak and brutal... because of love. Yet, unable to control themselves, they walk blindly towards annihilation...

Hans

Annihilation!? So, what happens to the phantom?

ConneR

Ha. Didn't think you'd be so moved by the phantom... But I've said my part. I'll leave the rest up to you.

Hans

Huh? You only told me half of the story... You're very stubborn, Mr. Neumann...

ConneR

Stubborn? I don't believe that word fits me.

Hans

Haha... Well, I think the phantom's lonely... He must really want someone to understand him...

ConneR

If that's how you wish to interpret it. Blast... I forgot to tell you about the mask. Each time the phantom appeared, he would wear a mask. That one you've got right there.

Hans

So... he wore a mask to hide himself...

ConneR

Mr. Turner, what's on your mind?

Hans

 N-Nothing. It's just that a girl with a mask sometimes appears in my dreams... Just feels like a strange coincidence...

ConneR

Oh? Perhaps it's not merely a coincidence. Even you said, maybe it's not a dream after all...
[Footsteps]

Hans

.... Who's there!!
[Covers Hans mouth]

Hans

…!?

ConneR

Shhh, quiet. It appears some rats have followed us.
