Chapter 9:

Zhu and An Unknown Girl

Train is Lost in a Loop of Track


Jon and his friend now have to find the odd one out of those eight toys in that thirty minutes. As Fuya adds an interesting rule, it makes them hardly remember the message of the toys.Bookmark here

There was one more thing I didn't mention earlier that whenever they were trying to listen to the message it sounded very differently like in a stammer way or in distortion, if you are not paying proper attention to the message then you will not be able to hear it. When a multiple of the third round is played that time if you hit the target you will be able to see the symbol on the head of the toy for thirty minute with that message, it becomes impossible to see the symbol on the head of the toy if you try to listen to the message and if you are listen the message then symbol become invisible. Let's see how they will clear this stage after going through this difficulties.

Currently thirty minutes have started. Jon is asking everyone one by one the sequence they went in, to see how much they remember. He had already asked Germon what he heard when he went to shoot. He said straight away, he doesn't remember anything. Then Jon says, "I also don't remember anything. But I saw a ray of incandescent inside the shadow symbol on the head of that toy."

"It could be a big lead, if you remember the symbol. Just in case we got some message that would be great." Germon says. Then he asks, "What did you hear, Kyora-sis? Means you were the fourth."

Kyora confidently exclaims, "Yeah! I heard and remember it."

Jon asked, "What did you hear?"
Bookmark here

Kyora replies, "I heard—I'm Sei. When someone falls. I get up but no one can see me, even though I'm here."

"Okay! Still not useful to find out the answer." Germon says.

Ashya says because she was next - round five, "Don't ask me, I didn't listen because that bitch added a new rule due to that Two toys start rumbling their voice inside of my head. So I couldn't remember it."

Germon says, "We know that, Ashya. Okay! I was next. So at the time I heard but couldn't see the symbol. The message was - "I'm Ka! I am not evident but still I'm everywhere."
Bookmark here

"Okay! After that I was, but I missed." Jon says. Here he was talking about the seventh round.
Bookmark here

In the round eight, the one who went was Kyora but she too missed the target. Next was the Ashya, this was the ninth round, where she could see the symbol and hear the message.

She really did well in that, "I heard and saw well. It says I'm Chi! If I break, you'll lose your balance and everything will sink in. The symbol was like a crack in the ground."

"An Earth Element!" Germon says after thinking about what Ashya said.
Bookmark here

"Oh! I get it too, toys representing the basic elements, right, Germon?" Jon says too.
Bookmark here

Germon gave some thought and said, "Yeah! Let's skip the part where we missed the target. Now I'll ask in my own way, is that okay with you, Jon."
Bookmark here

Jon replies, "Never mind!"
Bookmark here

Then first he himself says, "So I went to rounds two,six,ten, fourteen and eighteen. I hit all the targets but I only remember round six and fourteen. I already said the sixth one.And in the fourteenth round I heard, "I am Hi. If you touch me you will get hurt but only Mi can save you from me."

"I can even infer from this. It's the element of fire," Germon says. He continues, "Next you're Ashya, tell us about your now."
Bookmark here

"Okay! So I already gave you information about my first round which I missed due to my naivety, the fifth which was unexpected because of that bitch, and the ninth you all already know. After that I heard the message on both the remaining rounds. The first was - I'm Hika! Kura in me and I'm in Kura. The second was - I'm Kura! Hika in me and I'm in Hika."
Bookmark here

"Hika and Kura. They're like light and darkness, if I'm not mistaken." Jon says.
Bookmark here

Germon replies, "Your guess is right, Jon! They are light and dark."
Bookmark here

"You are all wonderful, guys!" Kyora says.
Bookmark here

Germon replies, "You're next, Kyora-sis."
Bookmark here

"Yeah! So I only remember the fourth, twelfth and sixteenth rounds. I already told you the fourth. On the twelfth, I was able to see the symbol and hear the message. They were - I'm Mi! And I will put down Hi for you and the symbol was like a wave flowing. And in the sixteenth round I heard, "I am Kami! I can be treacherous. If I fall on you!" she says
Bookmark here

"That symbol and the message match is the water element. And that sixteenth, I am not saying by the message, but if I match the name with the message. Then it sounded like thunder." Germon tells.
Bookmark here

"Okay! I'm the last one. So I hit the target in the remaining three but I only remember two. One of them was a multiple of three. So I'll start with that, so it also says and gives symbols which are I'm Ka! I am not evident but I'm everywhere and the symbol was like a flow of three Horizontal lines. I'm Sei! When someone falls. I get up but no one can see me, even though I'm here that was the last one message - . " Jon says
Bookmark here

"I don't get the last but the first one is the air element, no doubt about it." Ashya says
Bookmark here

Germon got the last, "You're right, Ashya! If I remember the basic elements, the last one I think is Spirit and I get it too which is an odd one."
Bookmark here

Before Germon can reply, Fuya laughs and says, "Hey innocent kids! Time's up, where was your attention."
Bookmark here

Then Ashya says, "There's still five minutes left, bitch!"
Bookmark here

Fuya responds to her, "Oh! I think you forgot my nature. Between games I changed the thirty minute rule to twenty five minutes. I was screaming from here to tell you but you didn't listen to me. Now you all suffer."
Bookmark here

After that she snaps the finger and everyone starts disappearing. It seemed like an ending but then a girl appeared inside Germon's mind.
Bookmark here

"If you want to save yourself and your friend, I can help you." That girl says in germon minds.
Bookmark here

Germon was confused, so he asked, "Who are you?"
Bookmark here

"I am Zhu. I have the power to turn back time, if you want, I can send you ten minutes earlier." She introduced and offered.
Bookmark here

Germon asked, "Why would you do this?"
Bookmark here

"Don't worry, Boy. I will be in your mind because there is something only you can do. so I will tell about me later."she says
Bookmark here

Germon replies, "What do you mean? But for what purpose are you doing this and why are you doing it?"
Bookmark here

"Do you really think you have time to ask me so many questions? If you don't answer, you and your friend will disappear." she says.
Bookmark here

Germon didn't think so because there wasn't time for that, so he immediately replied, "Okay! Do it."
Bookmark here

That Zhu girl turns back the time and sends everyone back ten minutes, but the only person who knew about this was Germon.
Bookmark here

They were still discussing, but he knew the answer, so it was before Fuya had a chance to play her dirty game.
Bookmark here

He raises his hand and replies, "It is thunder. Of all the elements, it is not the basics from the fire, water, earth, air, light, darkness and spirit."
Bookmark here

Fuya is so shocked at how he saw her move. Everyone gets surprised too. Then Fuya says, "Good job, boy! Correct answer."
Bookmark here

Fuya didn't ask as she left but Jon asked, "How did you know the answer, Germon?"
Bookmark here

Germon replies, "It's a long story, I'll tell you later."
Bookmark here

Ashya insisted, "What are you hiding, spit out otherwise?"
Bookmark here

Acting strangely, Germon says, "I said I will tell you later."
Bookmark here

"Okay! But that was really amazing, Germon." Ashya praises.
Bookmark here

Kyora also praised,"Yes! Germon that was amazing. You didn't even ask me about my message, still you got the answer."
Bookmark here

"I'm the one who did all this work and you're getting compliments." Says Zhu inside the mind of the Germon.
Bookmark here

He said, "Shut up!"
Bookmark here

Ashya thought she had heard something from Germon, "Did you say anything?"
Bookmark here

Germon replies, "No!"
Bookmark here

After that he thought he would tell them about Zhu later. Everyone starts walking from there, towards the sixteenth compartment which was their sixth stage and the second checkpoint. Between the seventeenth and the sixteenth compartment, something was waiting for them. They were all trying to force the Germon to ask how he got the answers. But they were not far from the sixteenth compartment. 
Bookmark here

Then they saw a girl lying at the entrance of the compartment. Everyone went towards her, she was injured and unconscious. Ashya asks, “Who is she?”
Bookmark here

Jon replies, "We don't have time for that, Germon carries her on your back and walks in for now."
Bookmark here

"Okay, I got it." Germon says. So Germon lifts her on his back and they all get in with her.

At the same time something was going on in the East Japan Railway Company. After three days, the chairman again went to the secret room.
Bookmark here

"Today I will definitely complete this story and Find a way to save those passengers." Chairman Ryochi Sougo says.
