Story Edit

Night Alone Edit

During Chapter 5, the Protagonist witnesses a Hand Spirit while searching for her sister. She decided to follow it, and soon ended up in the Downtown area. She then finds a number of Hand Spirits destroying the Salts set in the four main directions of the shopping district. As soon as the Hand Spirits disappear, an army of Hungry Ghosts appear and start causing trouble in the area. They also started trying to kill the Protagonist upon seeing her. Panicking, the girl runs from them as far as possible. Soon, she hears a telephone booth ringing nearby. She tries answering it, which causes her to be teleported into the dimension of the Centipede Spirit. At first, the girl was confused, but soon she starts running away from the Centipede Spirit, who thinks the girl was responsible for what happened in the shopping district and decided to kill her. Eventually, the Protagonist is cornered at the Centipede Spirit's shrine. The girl pleaded for her life, which causes the Spirit to change its mind. It decided to spare her life in exchange for making the girl replace all the Salt that was destroyed in the shopping district. With the help of the telephone booths that teleport her between the Spirit's domain and the Downtown area, she was able to evade the Hungry Ghosts and replace all the Salt. This drove away the hostile Spirits, making the shopping district safe again. The Protagonist then went to the Centipede Spirit's shrine to report what happened, but the said Spirit was nowhere in sight. However, the girl received a Red Charm and some extra Salt as thanks for fixing the Downtown area. The girl then returned Home before resuming her search for her sister.
