They had been wandering around the front of the house, and befriended Papi-sama, or so she said... at any rate, as she brought them into the living room... they... released a large quantity of spores from what looked like a mushroom's cap. Since I use my gills to breathe, I was relatively unaffected, but... everyone else who had inhaled the spores began to act very strangely... I believe they are all under some kind of group hypnosis that is keeping them trapped in a fantastical delusion. So I decided to wait for Beloved's return here in the pool."

Where am I...? What was I...?"

"So you say, but... it doesn't seem as though anything has changed... can we really escape from this world now or not, I wonder... if there were some sign or change to let us know... this is still a fake world created by Arbatel, after all."
"Ah... yes... I suppose so..."
"Not to mention... if Arbatel is the one who created this world, do you really believe she would deliver her own love letter with a gust of wind like that? Not to mention falling out of a window like that... would that not be simply acting... quite the performance for her own benefit..."
