      After this incident, strange things start happening around Midori that she can't understand. Her mother Kazuko spends all day scrubbing at a stain in the bathtub and Suzue, who is naturally in love with Kotaro as well, has her fortune told and starts behaving strangely. Also, Midori's childhood friend Rysuke was her sole emotional support, but...
