“Steal the Italians’ gold, you said?! That’s disgusting, Ushiromiya! And you call yourself a soldier of the Empire?!”
“Father, I do love and respect you very much… But your feelings are a bit… um…”
“Why?! Why did you save me back then? Why didn’t you just let me die?! Because of that horrible accident… I was forced to live in a body like this! I never wanted to live in a body like this!! A body that isn’t even capable of love!! What’s the point of living like this? This isn’t a human’s life! It’s like being furniture! …. That’s right, I’m furniture. Furniture! Why didn’t you just let me die back then?! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh—!!!”
“Behold the sweetfish river running
through my beloved hometown.
You who seek the Golden Land, follow its path downstream in search of the key.
As you travel down it, you will see a village.
In that village, look for the shore the two will tell you of.
There sleeps the key to the Golden Land.
The one who obtains the key must then travel to the Golden Land in accordance with these rules.
-On the first twilight, offer the six chosen by the key as sacrifices.
-On the second twilight, those who remain shall tear apart the two who are close.
-On the third twilight, those who remain shall praise my noble name.
-On the fourth twilight, gouge the head and kill.
-On the fifth twilight, gouge the chest and kill.
-On the sixth twilight, gouge the stomach and kill.
-On the seventh twilight, gouge the knee and kill.
-On the eighth twilight, gouge the leg and kill.
-On the ninth twilight, the witch shall revive, and none shall be left alive.
-On the tenth twilight, the journey shall end, and you shall reach the capital where the gold dwells.
The witch will praise the wise, and should bestow four treasures.
-One shall be, all the gold from the Golden Land.
-One shall be, the resurrection of the souls of all the dead.
-One shall be, even the resurrection of the lost love.
-One shall be, to put the witch to sleep for all time.
Sleep peacefully, my most beloved witch, Beatrice.” Umineko no Naku Koro ni - Witch’s Epitaph.
