as hell freezes over.
Sticky sweet living rooms
At least I no longer
pray in the bottom of swimming pools.
At least I no longer
toy with the idea
of racing trains on the track.
The year is melting away,
and I keep

Rei: Warming the entire body to the core ameliorates blood flow, stimulates perspiration, and helps recovering from fatigue. Not to mention, it helps improving the operating of the circulatory system! Rin: Swimming is a sports that taxes a lot on circulatory organs, too. Care is crucial. Makoto: Rei and Rin, you both sure know a lot! Haruka: (bubbling) Makoto: Haru, isn’t it chilly to stay in the cold water bath like that? Come over here. Haruka: I’m fine. I like cold water. Makoto: You should come this side later to properly warm yourself, okay? Hey, Haru, are you listening? Rin: That Haru… There’s no point coming to a bath-house if you’re just going to stay in the cold water… Makoto: Well, that’s what you’d expect from Haru. But really, it’s nice how you can actually stretch your legs here. There’s no room for that at home… Nagisa: (splashes water) Yup, yup! A big bath is fun, right! Plus we reserved it, so we can swim around all we want! (swims arounds) Rin: Ah! …Nagisa… Rei: Hey, Nagisa-kun, stop this! Nagisa: Ah! Hehe, sorry… Rin: You little… Don’t splash around with your feet right in front of people’s face, you damn–! Nagisa: Aah, it hurts it hurts it hurts, Rin-chan, don’t grab my head– Rin: Shut up! Take your bath quietly, okay?! Nagisa: I don’t want to! Rei: Hey, you two! Don’t fight in such a place! And you’re splashing water on my face too! Makoto: Ah geez, just soak normally… Nagisa: Hufufufu… Ma-ko-chan! (splashes him) Makoto: Ah! Geez… Nagisa! Rei: Ah, even Makoto-senpai now?! Everyone, calm down– Haruka: [evil demon lord aura] Rei: [faint shriek] Haruka: Use the water quietly. Makoto: …Sorry. Nagisa: Yeees. Rin: This is just bathwater, though– Makoto: Aah, now now Rin!
Nagisa: Aah… I’m all warmed up… Rei: Although, this… Isn’t this water a bit too hot? Rin: What’s up, Rei? Are you not good with hot baths? Careful not to get light-headed. Rei: I won’t! Nagisa: You’re not hot, Rin-chan? Rin: The dorm’s bath is rather hot so I got used to it. Plus, captain Mikoshiba… Ah, no, forget it… Rei: Oh my, Rin-san. Your face seems somewhat flushed… Shouldn’t you get out already? Rin: Aren’t you confident! Nagisa: Heheh, then, how about a contest? Of who can stay in the longest! Rin: Okay, sure! I’ll take you on! Nagisa: That’s our Rin-chan! Rin: You guys are competing too, right? Makoto, Rei. Makoto: Eh, me too? Rei: Very well! I accept this challenge! Nagisa: What about you, Haru-chan? Haruka: (bubbling) Nagisa: Haru-chan doesn’t want to leave the cold water bath, huh. Makoto: Hey, Haru, are you sure you’ll be okay? Haruka: (still bubbling) I’m fine. Rin: Makoto, just forget about Haru. Nagisa: Then, start! Ah, and the loser has to treat the others to fruit milk, okay. Rin: Although there’s no way I’ll lose. I’ll show you the endurance I built in the dorm’s bath! Rei: The fight is on! I shall remain until the very end! Makoto: Eeh, but I want to get out already… Nagisa: Come on Mako-chan, if you’re not in up to at least your shoulders, you’ll be disqualified! Makoto: Huh… That’s strict… Haruka: (blubbling) [thinking] Ah… What a noisy bunch.
The Waverly Hills Sanatorium, located in Kentucky, is often described as being one of the “most haunted” hospitals in eastern United States, having being featured on programmes such as Scariest Places on Earth, Ghost Hunters, and Most Paranormal. In the early 1900′s, the hospital was for tuberculosis patients who were unable to leave due to contagion. While incarcerated, so to speak, at Waverly, patients were subjected to experimental treatments which were often deemed as horrific as the disease itself. For example, some patient’s lungs were exposed to ultraviolet light in an attempt to stop bacteria spreading. Other experiments were much more barbaric - balloons were implanted into the lungs and then expanded, ribs and muscles were removed to allow the lungs to expand, and unsurprisingly, many patients didn’t survive this so-called treatment. Very few patients left via the front door but via the “body chute” which was a tunnel leading from the hospital to the railroad tracks at the bottom of the hill. The bodies were transported through this tunnel out of view of other patients. It’s often claimed that over 9,000 patients died while incarcerated at Waverly, however this estimate is often disputed.
