#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Jennifer  #$  (initial social rank:  "beggar")
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

The poor, unlucky girl whose parents died aboard an airship. She was taken in by
Gregory Wilson, who rescued her from the downed craft.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Brown  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

A dog that Jennifer found aboard the airship. She also met him previously near
the Rose Garden Orphanage, but he was a puppy then.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Wendy  #$ (The lonely Princess)
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

A girl who exchanged letters with Jennifer after she was taken in by Gregory.

When Jennifer found Brown, Wendy had to, for the first time, "share" Jennifer;
a fact which quickly instilled her with jealously. Using her placement in the
nearby orphanage as the "Princess of the Red Rose" of the Aristocrat Club, she
ordered that the dog be slaughtered (as seen in March).

Wendy is also the "Joshua" that appears to Jennifer throughout the game; the
same boy who, at the beginning of April, so easily announced that disobedience
will result in death. She did those things to her as punishment for her interest
in Brown.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Diana  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

The strong-willed Princess, ranked Duchess; the highest social placement in the
Aristocracy under the Princess of the Red Rose.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Eleanor  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

The cold Princess, ranked Baroness. She carries around an often-empty birdcage.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Meg (Margaret)  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

The wise-looking Princess, ranked Countess. In September, she wrote a love
letter to Diana, which went ill-received.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Amanda  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

The small-hearted Princess. Prior to Jennifer's arrival, Amanda held the lowest
social ranking: Miserable. Initially thankful to Jennifer for lessening the
ill treatment she receives, Amanda expressed remorse for following the Aristo-
crat Club's orders at the end of April. However, as time goes on and Jennifer
succeeds Amanda's ranking, a newfound hatred grows within her. By the time
October arrives, Amanda's taken to bludgeoning a doll in Jennifer's likeness.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Other Princes and Princesses  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

   [Olivia]
The tearful Princess. She's very young, and as her title suggests, is easily
brought to tears over the slightest of things. Something she says when she
cries is "Oh, daddy, don't go!!"


   [Clara]
The frightened princess. A certain scene in November suggests that Mr. Hoffman
engaged in sexual activities with her against her will.


   [Susan]
The impetuous Princess.


   [Nicholas]
The sloppy Prince. He and Xavier often play with makeshift swords.


   [Xavier]
The gluttonous Prince. He and Nicholas often play with makeshift swords.


   [Thomas]
The mischievous Prince. He has an obsession with trains that is rumored to be
connected to his birth in some manner.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Mr. Hoffman  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

The Headmaster of the Rose Garden Orphanage. He didn't much mind caring for the
orphanage, and rather took a liking to the children; Clara especially.
But with Jennifer's arrival, he finally found a child whom he utterly abhorred
and eventually fled the place.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Gregory M. Wilson  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

A man who farmed peas and carrots for a living, as indicated in his journal.
Gregory had a son, Joshua, who died for an unstated reason. Joshua's death
greatly disturbed Gregory, making him emotionally instable and consequently
deranged. When he rescued Jennifer from the crashed airship, said derangement
led him to treat her like his deceased son, and even to call her by his name.


Gregory is in fact Stray Dog, who Wendy tells the Aristocrat Club will come
and eat any disobedient children. They believed her, but lost faith after the
incident with her and Jennifer in November. Then in December, when Wendy
appeared, they went to laugh at her... But she came with Stray Dog and, just as
she said, all the naughty children were gobbled up.

Two possibilities exist for what happened next. Wendy gave Jennifer the gun
that Gregory had (the "dangerous thing" she referred to in June that had to be
taken away for Gregory's "own sake"). Depending on what the player chooses,
Jennifer can either kill Gregory herself, or hand him the gun when he apologizes
and let him commit suicide. In the latter case, he seems to reach a realization
before pulling the trigger, but it will forever remain with him alone.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Martha Carol  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

The Queen of Cleaning, as dubbed by the Aristocrat Club. She is later beaten
severely by two Horrible Imps for being suspected as a witch.

She had written letters to the police, pleading that something be done about
Gregory Wilson's behavior; Martha had seen Wendy training him like a dog.
Obviously skeptical, the police ignored her until her fifth letter, at which
point they replied, stating that, due to Gregory having a son like the one
she described, insufficient information was present to pursue further
investigation of the matter.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Sir Peter the Rabbit  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

A rabbit that Wendy acquired not long after Jennifer met Brown. Jennifer remarks
in January that she wondered if Wendy really cared for it at all.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Sir Joshua the Bear  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

A teddy bear who sits beside the doll with the red dress in the Aristocrat Club.
It was Jennifer's when she lived with Gregory, but she traded it to Wendy for
her rose broach in June.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Joshua Wilson  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Gregory's child, who died for (an) unknown reason(s). He very much liked
airships, airplanes and the like, as evidenced by the toys in his room.



Regarding Joshua's death, I'd like to offer the following speculation...

In the lavatory in Gregory's house, there's a calendar which, at the bottom,
reads, "BRITISH AIRSHIP WORKS". If we assume that this calendar is related to
the airship of Rule of Rose's focus and bear in mind the fanfare with which
said airship was celebrated with, the presence of free hand-out items, such as
calendars, is certainly not surprising. However, one possibility for how Gregory
came about the calendar that is particularly noteworthy, not for its likelihood
but for its impact on the story, is that he may have worked aboard the airship.

One might say that this contradicts him being a pea/carrot farmer. Before I can
respond to that notion, I need to bring up something else. Since no later than
the 10th of November, 1928, Jennifer had lived in Gregory's home (this fact is
evidenced by the date of Wendy's earliest letter to Jennifer). It was in June of
1929 (note the year) that Gregory wrote in his journal about "Joshua". Clearly
then, the "Joshua" of whom he spoke was in fact Jennifer. Thusly, the frequent
occurrence of "Joshua" taking ill could be one of two things: (A) Jennifer took
ill easily at that time, or (B) Joshua was sickly and Gregory attributed that
aspect of him to Jennifer as he did Joshua's identity itself.

So, if we assume that Joshua was indeed very ill, perhaps nearing death, and
also keep in mind the aforementioned fact that Joshua loved airships... It's
certainly a possibility that Gregory wanted to let Joshua fly aboard an airship
to make his final days as happy as they could be. But, as he would not have been
able to afford such, he opted to attain a job on the craft and take Joshua along
with him that way.

Of course, it could just be that Joshua died of illness. However, if the former
speculation is what really happened, it would more easily allow for Gregory to
find and rescue Jennifer than if he hadn't been on the airship.

$# "Chapter Title" scenes  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

At the beginning of each chapter when its name is given to the player, an
animation plays featuring drawings that resemble those of children.

$#  *s in Storybooks and Item Descriptions  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

I've used * to denote something I'm adding in. In the case of storybooks, it's
a description of the pictures; in the case of item descriptions, it's anything
I might have to add that isn't included in the in-game text.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Storybook "pages"  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

I've referred to each set of two pages as a single page; this is because the
game itself displays subtitled text for every such set. When an individual
page need be specified, I've used such a descriptor as "Page 01.5".

Gregory   : Once upon a time, there was a precious little girl. Her friend,
            the Princess of the Red Rose...

Narration : ...was always at her side. Then one day, her mummy and daddy died
            suddenly, and the poor little girl was sent away to a strange house.

* - In the middle of the night, a bus drives along a tree-surrounded road.
    Jennifer sits in the back, asleep; a young boy, Joshua, sits near the front,
    closely reading a storybook titled "The Little Princess."

    A moth flies by the light-bulb on the ceiling. Joshua approaches Jennifer.

Joshua    : Jennifer. Jennifer! Play with me, Jennifer!

* - Jennifer wakes up and looks at Joshua.

Joshua    : Read the story! Please, read the story!

* - With his head bowed, he hands the book to Jennifer.

Joshua    : What happens next?

* - She takes the storybook. He opens it up to the first page for her.

Jennifer  : What's this?

* - The camera shows the back of the bus driver for a moment. The vehicle
    abruptly comes to a halt; the boy runs outside.

Jennifer  : Wait!

* - She looks out the window at the boy.

Jennifer  : Please!

* - She runs outside the bus. Joshua flees into the shadows.

Jennifer  : Where are you going?!

* - The bus closes its doors.

Jennifer  : Oh!?

* - It drives away, despite her pleas, leaving her amid the darkness.

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Jennifer looks at the book Joshua handed her. It reads:

Page 01   : Once upon a time, there was a precious little girl.
            * The little girl sits in a chair.
Page 02   : Her friend, the Princess of the Red Road, was always by her side.
            * The Princess walks with the little girl.

            too, disappeared, leaving the girl all alone.
            * An airship is seen crashing.
Page 04   : And the poor little was sent away to a strange house.
            * A man drags Jennifer into his home.

* - The rest of the book's pages are blank. Jennifer closes the storybook.

Narration : Suddenly, the girl was all alone... ...And so, the story begins.
            A mysterious, unthinkable, filthy tale. However, the young girl,
            Jennifer, had no choice but to surrender to the unsettling
            predicament... Oh, what an unlucky girl...

$#  Strange Hill  –  Fork in the road  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

            * On the paper's side is "RED CRAYON ARISTOCRATS"
<item2>   : The name "Brown" is on the dog collar.



   [After examining the Dog Collar]
* - A female child laughs sinisterly, but there's no one to be seen. The dog
    that Jennifer had heard barking before now whimpers once, though it, too,
    is not in sight.



   [Examine:  Headless Bucket Knight]
<game>    :    About Saving
            You can save your progress by talking to the Bucket Knights located

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Front Gate  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Joshua runs passed the gate and closes it.

Narration : ...Following the boy up the road, she came upon a huge, old mansion.
            For some reason, this place seems familiar to the unlucky girl...



   [Examine:  Front gate]
* - Two children with bags over their heads stand over a sack on the ground.
    One of them, Diana, mercilessly bludgeons it with a club.

    Joshua watches from the door for a moment before entering the mansion.

Narration : Children with bags over their heads are beating something with a
            stick... The unlucky girl was frightened and backed away from the
            gate...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Fence Road  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Children look over the brick fence as Jennifer runs behind the building.

    The door whips shut behind it.

    Blood lies splattered on the ground.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Hallway  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - No lights are turned on inside the house, despite the time of day. Not long
    after Jennifer enters, the door shuts behind her and the lock turns. A boy
    outside laughs.

    Further into the house, Joshua runs up to the second floor.

Narration : The unlucky girl felt the chilling gaze of many eyes upon her...
            Yet, she was all alone.

* - On the second floor, Joshua runs passed door.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$
$#  Filth Room  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - A doll is bound by rope to a pillar in the middle of the room.



   [Examine:  Doll]
<game>    : ...There's a creepy doll tied to the pillar.

   [Examine:  Photo on desk]
<game>    : It's a faded group photo taken in front of the mansion.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - Inside one of the rooms...


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Aristocrat Club  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - With candles surrounding him, Joshua sits on one of two chairs atop several
    boxes at the far end of the room.

Narration : When the unlucky girl approached the boy, he said:

Joshua    : "My, aren't you a slow poke, like always. Here, read me the rest of
            the story. You know, the book I handed you."

* - Jennifer opens the book.

Page 04   : And the little girl was sent away to a strange house. At her new
            home, the Aristocrat Club lived by the Rule of Rose. But the girl
            found herself very much alone.

* - After Jennifer closes the book...

PA System : We will now begin the funeral. All those attending, please gather
            around at this time.

* - In the Inner Court, Diana, Eleanor, Meg and one other girl stand by a mound.

Children  : Ashes to ashes... Dust to dust...
            Ashes to ashes... Dust to dust...

Joshua    : Come on, Jennifer. The funeral is about to begin.

            It's a funeral for your dear friend.

Narration : Before she realized it, the boy was gone... and the girl was left in
            confusion.

* - A dog barks and whimpers pleadingly over and over again outside.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Inner Court  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Narration : When the girl went out to the yard, she found a shovel standing
            before a grave.

* - Jennifer walks to the grave.

Narration : The unlucky girl sensed that something very dear to her was buried
            here. As if possessed, she began to dig furiously...

* - Diana scoops some water into a pitcher.

    Jennifer hits a box – a makeshift coffin – with the shovel. She tosses the
    instrument away and digs with her hands.

    Meg scoops some water into a pitcher.

    Jennifer sits for a moment, breathing heavily; she's uncovered the box.

    Eleanor scoops some water into a cup.

    Jennifer pulls up the piece of wood placed over the box and peeks inside;
    she gasps as she sees the sack from before resting within.

    The three girls, along with Amanda, approach Jennifer from behind.

Diana     : Just look at you! You're filthy!

* - The four girls pour water on Jennifer. She starts to cry.

    A gong rings in the distance, and an announcement begins over the PA System.

Woman     : Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for joining us on our flight.
            Attention all passengers: We will be taking off in a short while.
            Please take all large luggage to Section 8 of the Freight Storage
            Compartment. Thank you.

Jennifer  : No! No! Please!

* - Jennifer is bound by rope to a pillar in the center of the room, similar to
    the doll from before.

    She raises her head, emerging from unconsciousness. As her senses come to
    her, she tries to squirm out of the rope. After Jennifer pursues her futile
    efforts for a time...

Narration : When the girl awoke, she found herself in a strange room. It was a
            cold, lonely, stinky room.

* - From the PA System...

Joshua    : Good morning, Jennifer. How do you feel? Let's have a little chat,
            shall we?

            [Yes]: Hmm. Good girl.
            [No] : Hmm. So that's how you feel, is it?

            Jennifer, you know you've been a bad, bad girl. And, bad girls need
            to be punished, don't they?

            [Yes]: Hmm. You're a brave girl.
            [No] : A bad, bad girl who's not sorry, hmm?

            Anyway, I'll be the one giving the orders around here, okay?

            [Yes]: Hmm. Clever girl.
            [No] : Hmm. Silly girl. You still don't understand? Well, you will
                   before long!

            Now, I'm going to give you your first order. Every month, you need
            to find a gift and bring it to the Aristocrat Club.

            If you don't, I'll kill you.

            Is there anything about this that you don't understand?

            [Yes]: Yes?!
            [No] : No?!

            Hmm. Oh well, it's doesn't really matter what you say. You see,
            Jennifer, there are really only two kinds of people in the world:
            those who take orders, and those who give them. And from now on,
            I'll be giving the orders.

            Not fair?

            Well, dear Jennifer, nothing's fair here. You will follow my orders,
            or else, for I am the Prince, and the Prince rules!

            This is YOUR life, but you'll play by MY rules!

            Let the games begin, dear Jen-ni-fer!

* - Joshua laughs madly. He presses a button, lowering some scissors from above
    to cut the ropes binding Jennifer's hands.

Narration : And so... The rope was cut: snip-snip... and the girl joined the
            Aristocrat Club.

            Congratulations!
            Congratulations!

            shake them off, quickly move the left analog stick back and forth.
            If you keep taking damage, you'll slow down and eventually collapse,

    the door before setting foot in the room, but upon seeing Jennifer approach,
    she quickly dashes inside and shuts the door.



   [After offering the Blue Butterfly]
???       : I don't know...
Diana     : Oh, why not?
???       : What? No~!
Nicholas  : It's her first time.

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - Jennifer falls onto a red carpet, lined with dozens of candles. She looks up
    at the children of the Aristocracy.

Meg       : Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Aristocrat Club. Thank you all
            for gathering here today.

* - Diana smirks; Eleanor holds her birdcage; Amanda quivers.

    In one of two chairs at the highest point at the back of the room, sits a
    doll wearing a red dress.

    Diana walks over to Jennifer. She curtseys, then kneels down before the
    already-kneeling Jennifer. Diana places her hands at the sides of Jennifer's
    face, looking directly at her.

Diana     : You're a disgrace.

* - She shakes Jennifer back and forth.

Diana     : Nothing! Worse than nothing! You're gift is worth NOTHING!

* - She tosses Jennifer onto the floor.

    Diana sneers at Jennifer, but then smiles as an idea comes to mind.

Diana    : Aman-da!

* - Amanda walks to Diana, still quivering. Diana wraps her arm around Amanda,
    holding her close.

Diana    : There, there, there.

* - Meg starts clapping. The other children follow.

Children : A-man-da! A-man-da! A-man-da! ...

* - Amanda is handed a stick; a rat is bound to it. She positions to rod to
    shove the rat in Jennifer's face. Though initially seeming apprehensive,
    Amanda soon warms up and smiles as Jennifer becomes increasingly distraught.

    Soon, the poor girl passes out from the shock of it all.

* - Joshua sits atop one of the two highest chairs, next to the seat which the
    doll in the red dress occupied previously.

Joshua    : Well? Do you remember now what a bad girl you were? You haven't

            many, many bad things. You'll just have to remember them little by

Amanda    : I'm sorry, Jennifer, I'm sorry... I didn't want to do that. I was
            just so scared...

* - Crying, Amanda turns around, coming to her feet only to trip moments later.
    She crawls to Jennifer on her hands and knees.

Amanda    : Jennifer~~!! Jennifer~~!!

* - She grips Jennifer's leg.

Amanda    : I did what I had to do, didn't I?

* - She starts to stand up again, still holding Jennifer.

Amanda    : I had no choice. They would have hurt us both, wouldn't they?

* - Jennifer falls over as Amanda tugs on her.

Amanda    : I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. When it's my turn, don't think you have to
            hold back!

* - Amanda brings Jennifer's hand to her face, curling it into a fist.

Amanda    : Do it like it this...

* - She moves Jennifer's hand about her face as if she were punching her.

Amanda    : And this! And this! And this! Oh! And like this! And like this!!

* - Amanda continues the motion, crying all the more. As Jennifer retracts
    her hand, Amanda smiles a tad, perhaps thinking that the previous display
    lessened her sin in Jennifer's eyes.

Amanda    : We're still friends, aren't we? I know we're still friends,
            Jennifer! I trust you!

    off her back and looks to Amanda, who turns to leave.

    they walk away, passed the other corner.

    They "speak" to Mr. Hoffman, who's still bound by rope.

Hoffman   : Mm-hmm. Oh! Oh... Yes...

* - They say something rather attention-grabbing to Mr. Hoffman. He begins to
    approach Jennifer, waving a weapon around.

Hoffman   : Why you...! Little rat! Jenn-ifer! Did you make a mess again?
            This is unforgivable... You dirty, dirty girl... Fool!

* - As the light hits him, it can be seen that he's still bound by rope.
    Peculiarly, he isn't bound _to_ anything; the rope simply slows his

Amanda    : We did it! We make a great team! Hand me Peter! I'll give him to
            them for us.

Narration : The forest seemed strangely familiar. In the dense woods under the
            stars, a sacrificial ceremony was under way... Desperately fighting
            fear, the girl slowly approached the strange sight.

Children  : "Monday's pea was a sight to see."
            "Tuesday's pea almost made it free."
            "Wednesday's pea didn't think to flee."
            "Stray Dog will have his peas..."

* - Jennifer watches the scene from behind a bush. Amanda stops her from moving
    any closer.

Amanda    : Lower classes, like you and me, can't go up really close. We have
            to pray from a distance.

* - The sack containing Sir Peter is raised up by a rope.

    Shadows of the pole with a rat atop it and Eleanor's birdcage are shown, to
    represent the presence of Diana and Eleanor, respectively.

Meg       : Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Aristocrat Club. I wish to
            thank you for gathering here today.

* - Diana, Meg and Eleanor turn to Jennifer.

Diana     : Jen-ni-fer~~!

* - Jennifer comes to her feet and hesitantly approaches Diana. As she walks,
    she trips.

Meg       : May I have your attention... This is a message from the Princess of
            the Rose.

* - The doll with the red dress is again shown atop one of the two chairs.

Meg       : The message reads: "Jennifer, your efforts this month deserve
            special recognition. You managed to find Peter, and will be amply
            rewarded."

* - Amanda reacts to the "rewarded" bit.

Meg       : Thus concludes the message from the Princess.

Diana     : Splendid work, Jennifer.

* - The social rank chart is shown; the camera steadily lowers.

Diana     : You are no longer a wretched peon. Amanda, on the other hand, has
            been de-mo-ted.

* - Jennifer is now placed at "Irritating," above Amanda at "Miserable".

Diana     : Aman-da~~!

* - Amanda appears terribly frightened.

    Diana hands Jennifer the rat-tipped pole. Thinking that she's to be the
    one it's used on, Jennifer raises her hands, but Diana places it in
    Jennifer's grip for her.

Diana     : It's time, Jennifer.

* - The children begin chanting and clapping.

Children  : Jen-ni-fer! Jen-ni-fer! Jen-ni-fer!

* - Terrified, Amanda backs up, but she trips over some rope.

    Jennifer tries to reach the pole to Amanda, but hesitates and pulls it back.
    Diana kicks Jennifer forward, forcing her to shove it into Amanda.

    As the pole is pushed into her face, Amanda promptly loses consciousness.

    Jennifer retracts the pole. As she gains an unfortunate glance at the rat's
    worm-ridden flesh, she too passes out.

    closes her empty birdcage's door. Red feathers litter the ground.

    Brown barks as Jennifer draws near the bed. A rope, gripping the figure
    beneath the sheets, reaches up to the ceiling and connects to two pulleys.

    A female child laughs and locks the door. The pulleys spin and lift the
    figure out from the bed; it's the mermaid, who peculiarly has feet
    protruding from her fin.

    is that of an actual fish, bound to the doll portion by rope; the fish's
    head has been severed.

    Jennifer picks up the mermaid doll. Mr. Hoffman enters the room, speaking
    to Diana.

Hoffman   : What in blazes...!? Just WHO did this!? Who made this mess!?

    looks to Jennifer, perhaps suspecting her as the cause of the mess, but
    nonetheless leaves.

    placing her head on Diana's chest as tears begin to fall.

    Diana affectionately strokes Meg's hair.

Meg       : How could she? How could she do that to me? What did I ever do
            to her? I can't get along with girls like her...

Meg       : It's into the onion bag for her...

 Monday, June 2. Clear Skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.

Weeding again. Tomorrow, I'm thinking of taking my son Joshua with me out to
the fields.


 Wednesday, June 4. Clear Skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.


 Thursday, June 5. Rain in the afternoon.
Weeded the field again. Joshua isn't feeling well, so I worked in the fields
alone, as always.


 Friday, June 6. Clear Skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.


 Saturday, June 7. Rainy.
Weeding again. Tomorrow morning, I'll go into town to sell peas, so tonight I
must make preparations. It is a busy day indeed.


 Sunday, June 8. Clear Skies.
I went to market and sold peas and carrots. I had hoped to be able to feed
Joshua something nutritious, but sales were not good, so I was not able to
buy much.


 Monday, June 9. Clear Skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.


 Tuesday, June 10. Clear skies.
Joshua has been misbehaving. He went and ate sweets out of the cupboard without
permission.


 Wednesday, June 10. Cloudy.
Weeding the fields again. It was cold today. I'll have to give Joshua a blanket
so he won't be cold.


 Wednesday, June 12. Cloudy.
Joshua is under the weather. He had a slight fever, so I fed him some hot pea
soup.


 Friday, June 13. Clear skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.


 Saturday, June 14. Cloudy.
Planted peas in the ground.


 Sunday, June 15. Rainy.
I spent the day in my room drawing a picture book for Joshua. I'm sure he'll
enjoy this one.

Today, I cleaned out the barn. Joshua told me he liked my latest story.
Nothing pleases me more than to see my son happy.


 Tuesday, June 17. Cloudy.
Barn cleaning again. I've been neglecting the fields, so they're in a bit of a
mess. I must drive the insects and mice away.


 Wednesday, June 18. Clear skies.
I did weeding today. The weather was beautiful. A great day to work the fields.


 Thursday, June 19. Clear skies.
More weeding. I wanted to take Joshua out with me to the fields, but his coughs
were getting worse, so I had him stay in bed.


 Friday, June 20. Clear skies.
Today, I weeded the fields.


 Saturday, June 21. Clear skies.
Planted peas in the ground.


 Sunday, June 22. Cloudy.
I thought of a good idea for a story. I'm going to take a day off from the
fields and concentrate on refining it.


 Monday, June 23. Clear skies.
I did weeding today. Joshua told me he liked my latest story. There's nothing
I like more than seeing his beaming, happy face.

Weeding again. It feels great to work the fields on such a fine day.


 Wednesday, June 25. Clear skies.
Today, I weeded the fields. Work went well.

            England's largest luxury airship, which just set out on its virgin
            flight -- a flight celebrated across the country with great fanfare
            -- was reported today to have gone off course and is currently
            missing. It is speculated that the vessel diverted from its course
            to avoid a low pressure system approaching from the south, but its
            whereabouts are still unknown.

            Due to the heavy thunder and rain that have blanketed the area since
            yesterday, the search for the airship has faced many difficulties.

I HATE HER I HATE HER I HATE HER 
Oh my! I've got to sew the rags...



   [Sunday, October 6]
After all that time I spent sewing it!
Basil, Fanny, George, Hector, Ida, Leo, Paul!
Why must they always bother me so?
Oh, woe is me!



   [Sunday, October 12]
Oh, why can't they all just go to hell!
Basil, have a nap on the railroad tracks!
Fanny, take a dive off the roof!
George, I'll hang you upside down!
Hector, get run over by a carriage!
Ida, I have some fancy poison jam for you!
Leo, walk across an open manhole.
Paul, get smothered under a great rug!
And lastly, that girl!
The Aristocrats will have their way with her!
Oh, how very delightful life is!



   [Sunday, October 19]
That wretched girl will do my dirty work.
I'll work her to the bone!
Oh, I feel wonderful today!


   [Page after October 19]
I'm so worried...
I don't know what's going to happen...



   [Remaining pages]
* (I'm not particularly sure what's going on in parts of this, but I'm going to
  make my best attempt at being accurate.)

  Drawings of Amanda are on the pages. Over time, she grows wings and tries to
  fly into the sky, but reaches so high up that all the air disappears and she
  suffocates. As she impacts the ground, her body breaks apart.

  The following pages depict swirling lines and the absence of Amanda's corpse.

    As the real Jennifer approaches the lift, it ascends.

    Suddenly, the power shuts off, leaving the entire airship in darkness.

Nicholas  : That Xavier... He said he found a good stick and then ran off.
            Since then, it's been dark in here. Blimey, what on Earth did he do?

* - As Jennifer climbs up the ladder in the Upper Deck that leads to the topmost
    of the airship's exterior... she finds herself in, of all things, a field.

    Between two trees that form a shape quite like the vertical part of the
    airship that was on its exterior, Amanda is bludgeoning something.

    As Amanda notices Jennifer's presence, she turns to her, smiling gleefully.
    Yet she quickly acts surprised and tries to hide her club behind her back.

    With few other options to change how the scene comes across, she curtseys.
    She then approaches Jennifer.

Amanda    : Oh, it's nothing. I'm fine, really. I'm not upset at all.

* - Amanda gently takes Jennifer's hand, but Jennifer pulls it back.

Amanda    : Oh, Jennifer... You know what? I've got something special...

* - She reaches down to a rock and takes something that had been pushed almost
    under it.

    It's Sir Joshua the bear. Along with ripped fur, his left eye now dangles
    from its socket.

Amanda    : Look! Isn't he cute? Here, it's yours!

* - She hands it to Jennifer.

Amanda    : Give it as a gift, and you'll be Ms. Popular again!

* - Amanda giggles. She returns to the thing in the alcove between the trees
    and begins beating it again.

    This time, however, Jennifer can see it; a doll in Jennifer's own likeness.

    And then, likely with images in her mind of being treated as is the doll,
    Jennifer passes out.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$

* - Jennifer awakens below the ladder leading to the airship's top exterior.
    Joshua (the boy) takes Joshua (the bear) from beside Jennifer.

Joshua    : You're finally here, Jennifer!

            ...Do you want the doll back? Sorry, but I'm rather fond of it.
            Too bad it's missing its tail.

            Well then, take care...

* - He laughs and runs off.

    been left on the middle of the floor.



   [Examine:  Joshua the Bear]
<game>    : You find a beat-up teddy bear that's missing its tail.

* - Susan walks out of the Aristocrat Club's room; she walks down the hall,
    paying little notice to Jennifer. That is, until she sees Joshua the Bear.
    Surprised, she dashes back into the Aristocrat's room.

    Jennifer makes her way to the door and places Joshua the bear inside.

    As Jennifer hesitantly enters the door, two children pull her inside.

Diana     : Come here, Jennifer. Let's have a little talk.

* - Jennifer approaches the end of the room, where all the other children have
    gathered.

    Amanda whispers to Diana.

Amanda    : She's the one who stole it.

* - Diana walks to a chair in front of Jennifer and stands atop it.

Meg       : Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Aristocrat Club.
            A word from the Princess:

            Jennifer has brought a wonderful gift to the Aristocrat Club.

* - The doll with the red dress is bound to her chair by rope.

Diana     : Now, you can have your very own red crayon.

* - Diana rubs Jennifer's head.

    The other children begin to stand up and clap.

Children  : Hats off to you. Hats off to you. Hats off to you.

* - Their congratulations done, the children quickly take leave of the room.

    Dozens of Horrible Imps suddenly appear.

Imps      : A bright red crayon, just for you! Lots and lots of them.

* - In vain, Jennifer struggles to flee, but they bind her limbs with rope
    and pull her into the darkness.

Hoffman   : Hello, boys and girls. How are we today?

            Wastepaper should go in the rubbish, and washing should go into the
            Filth Room. It's time to spring clean our home!

* - Within the Filth Room, Jennifer is bound to the central pillar by rope.
    A wad of several red crayons have been shoved in her mouth, and her clothes
    are covered in red drawings.

Hoffman   : Everyone, bring your brushes and dustpans, and gather around.
            Do I make myself clear, children?

* - Jennifer regains consciousness. She spits the crayons out.

    She calls for Brown, who’s sleeping behind her. Eventually, he awakes and
    loosens the ropes, allowing Jennifer to undo them completely.

Narration : The unlucky girl realized that this was the old mansion...
            Unfortunately for her, despite the beautiful sunset, this day was
            the unluckiest of days. Only the girl's silent companion saw her

Peculiarly, on the second floor of the foyer, a table has been pushed up against
the railing. On it, a chair is holding a ladder in place; said ladder extends
over the railing. The camera does not allow the rest of the ladder to be seen.

   [Nicholas  -  1F, Hallway]
Narration : The sloppy Prince glanced away from the girl as if tiring of an
            old toy. No matter how kindly she smiled, she was all alone.
            What a poor, unlucky girl.


   [Xavier  -  1F, Hallway]
Narration : The sloppy Prince glanced away from the girl as if served cold soup
            for supper. No matter how hard she cried, she was all alone.
            What a poor, unlucky girl.



   [Olivia  -  1F, Kitchen]
* - Olivia is trying to reach a pan on the counter. She begins to cry when she
    is unable to take hold of it.

Narration : Even though the girl tried to comfort her, the tearful Princess
            cried even more. In the end, the girl was all alone.
            What a fragile, unlucky girl.



   [Diana  -  2F, Dormitory]
Narration : No matter what the unlucky girl said to her, the strong-willed
            Princess would only gaze lethargically. Asleep or awake, the
            girl was alone.
            What a sad, unlucky girl.



   [Eleanor  -  2F, Balcony]
Narration : No matter what the unlucky girl said to her, the cold Princess
            simply stared up into the sky... The poor, unlucky girl realized
            that she was all alone.


   [Meg & Susan  -  2F, Library]
* - Meg and Susan are cleaning and sorting some of the books. As Jennifer
    approaches them, however, Meg motions for Susan to come.

Meg       : Look, look.

* - They both start to examine a book, quietly speaking to each other about it.

Narration : The two Princesses didn't let the unlucky girl join their
            conversation. Wherever she went, she was all alone.
            What a lonely, unlucky girl.



   [Clara  -  2F, Sick Bay]
Narration : The frightened Princess would not face the unlucky girl for some
            reason. Today, the day after, and on, she was all alone.
            What an unhappy, unlucky girl.

* - As Jennifer goes to leave the room, Hoffman opens the door.

Hoffman   : Clara!

* - She seems to be forcing herself not to cry as she slowly walks to Hoffman.
    She pauses at the door, but Hoffman takes her shoulder and leads her inside.
    He shuts and locks the door.

    When Jennifer peeks in through the keyhole...

    In a surprisingly soft and non-cantankerous tone, Hoffman says to Clara,
    who's kneeling on the ground in front of him and wiping the floor,

Hoffman   : Look, there's some dust over here. Give it a wipe.


 
   [Thomas  -  2F, Play Area]
* - The Prince is playing with a toy train.

Narration : The arrival station of the mischievous Prince's train did not have
            the girl's name on it. Left behind, she was all alone.
            What an unfortunate girl.



   [Martha  -  2F, 2nd Floor Lavatory]
* - Martha is cleaning one of the toilets. As Jennifer approaches her...

Martha    : Filthy wretch.

Narration : The unlucky girl spoke to the cleaning Queen. ...Yet, her reply was
            the same as always.

Martha    : Dirty wretch.

Narration : Everyday and all the time, she was all alone.
            What a woeful, unlucky girl.



   [Amanda  -  2F, Sewing Room]
Narration : The behavior of the small-hearted Princess concentrating on her
            chores seemed forced and unnatural. The unlucky girl became sad...
            And then, she was alone again. What a hapless, unlucky girl.

   <author's note>
After talking to a child (no matter which one), a new crumpled paper is thrown
at Jennifer by the other children (although they don't appear on-screen).

Nicholas & Xavier, and Meg & Susan are grouped together.



   [Message displayed prior to reading the papers]
...Jennifer picked up a crumpled piece of paper that was thrown at her.
...It reads:



   [Papers]
[01]      : "LIAR!"
[02]      : "POOR MR. JOSHUA!"

* - Jennifer walks up to one last piece of paper lying on the floor. As she
    takes it, an announcement begins over the PA system.

Hoffman   : Boys and girls, cleaning time is over. Wastepaper should go in the
            rubbish bin, and washing should go into the Filth Room. Are the
            rooms all spic-and-span? Are all the halls sparkling clean?

            It's almost time for bed Diana, Eleanor, Xavier, Meg, Susan,
            Nicholas, Thomas, Clara, Olivia...

* - Amanda doesn't seem terribly surprised by the exclusion of her name.

Hoffman   : Be thankful for this wondrous day, and let us pray for an even
            better day tomorrow.

            Get ready for bed, and may you have a good night's rest.

* - Nightfall quickly arrives. As Jennifer unfolds the crumpled paper, more
    notes start to fall.

Papers    : ANNOUNCEMENT FROM ARISTOCRATS
            THIS MONTH'S GIFT:
            FILTHY JENNIFER

* - When Jennifer looks up from the announcement, she sees that the walls have
    been lined with copies of the note; hundreds upon hundreds litter the walls
    as even more fall from above.

* - Hundreds of Horrible Imps peer out from the windows on all sides of the
    court, and on all levels of the building.

    Within the court, Wendy has appeared. She strokes Brown.

Wendy     : So this is your new friend, huh? It's so filthy, but adorable.

            Oh, yes. Jennifer, there will be an Aristocrat Club meeting after
            this. Today will be the most wonderful day. I hope you enjoy it.

* - On top of a crate in the court, the "The Funeral" storybook rests.

            must sacrifice your friend.
Page 04   : Who wants to be buried alive?
Page 05   : So the girl did what she had to, and buried her best friend.

            had all vanished. ...And even her dearest friend is nowhere to
            be found.

Narration : ...This time, the girl was certain it was her friend, calling for
            help from above.

* - At the third floor, Jennifer examines a beaten-up dog doll...

Narration : It's... not the girl's dear friend.
            "What happened to him? Was he...?"
            Because of the frightening images in her head, the poor girl was a
            nervous wreck.

            "Something terrible has happened to him..."
            Because of the frightening images in her head, the poor girl was a
            nervous wreck.

#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#$#

* - A Horrible Imp ties a rope around Brown's neck. It pulls Brown along as two
    other Imps sweep up the bloody mess.

    Jennifer enters the room. She sees a dismembered doll in the likeness of a
    dog lying on the ground. She falls to her knees.

    A girl laughs. Jennifer looks up at the Aristocrats.

    The girl, seated in the place of the doll with the red dress and herself
    wearing a dress of the same color, steps down off her chair. She blocks her
    face from view with a newspaper-bouquet of roses.

    The girl lowers the flowers, revealing her identity:  Wendy.

    While Jennifer stares up from the ground in shock, Amanda scuttles over and
    whispers in her ear.

Amanda    : Your friend is in the bag. It's too late now.

* - Gasping, Jennifer looks over at the blood-soaked sack in the corner.

    Wendy smirks.

    With a rapidly growing mix of sadness and anger, Jennifer clenches her
    hand into a fist. She stands up.

    Suddenly, she's reverted from the form of an adult and become a child.

Jennifer  : My friend... Give me back my friend!

* - She slaps Wendy; the Princess falls.

    Jennifer continues to beat Wendy.

Jennifer  : Liar! Go away! Just go away!!

* - She moves over Wendy, looking at her directly.

Jennifer  : I'll never forgive you; not ever!

* - The other children watch the scene in utter silence.

Jennifer  : And as for the rest of you, how could you believe all those lies?!
            "Aristocrats"?! You're just the opposite!!

            I hate you! And I hate you! And you!!

            And I hate myself the very most, for playing YOUR stupid games and
            not having the strength to stand up to you!

            It's all just hideous!

* - She rips the broach from her chest and tosses it away.

    Crying, Wendy stands up and runs away; what an unsightly Princess.

    Joshua the Bear looks on from its throne.

Eleanor   : Please lead us.

Diana     : We are yours to command, Princess.

Amanda    : Princess, go ahead! Guide us! We need you! We don't know what to do!

* - Susan looks out the window.

Susan     : Look! Look, it's Wendy. It's Wendy.

* - The children scream outside; a dog barks.

    All goes quiet.

    Suddenly, the front door creaks open; Joshua stand beside Gregory, who
    kneels on the ground as if a dog.

    Joshua lets go of Gregory's leash. He points to Jennifer.

Joshua    : Go...

* - Gregory starts to crawl across the ground.

Gregory   : Once upon a time... there was a precious little girl.

    Joshua, standing in the door behind her.

Joshua    : Because you wouldn't love me... Because you were so stubborn...
            I brought you here.

* - Joshua removes his wig; it's actually Wendy.

Wendy     : Because you fell in love with Brown... Because you didn’t realize
            it was me... I brought Stray Dog here...

            But, I... I... 

* - Wendy holds out a pistol.

Wendy     : Please, stop him with this... Only you and your beloved dog can
            stop him...

            I'm sorry...

* - Gregory slowly pulls Wendy back into the house. After a moment, he exits.

    struggles to keep from slipping away, but in the end... what can be done?

    Brown barks over and over. Darkness covers the entire screen.

Text      : ...And, that is how the girl wound up all alone again.

* - Joshua laughs madly in the background.

Text      : ...She couldn't keep her promise, nor could she save anyone.

            What a pitiful, unlucky girl.

Gregory   : I'm sorry, Joshua...

Gregory   : Oh! Hmm... Yes.

* - He smiles and closes his eyes.

    ...And then pulls the trigger.

    Jennifer stands still for a moment. Brown beckons her to come; as she
    follows him, a bright light engulfs them both.

    This leads to January.

    Next to her on the bed is a storybook.

A girl curiously examines a chair. She leaves the chair.
She jumps on the chair. She leans on the chair.
She sits in the chair; her friend sits beside her. They take the other's hand.
The little girl binds her friend to the chair with rope,
Then she binds herself.
The girls struggle furiously to escape. A dog observes.
The girl falls over.
The girl disappears, as do her friend's ropes.
A dog watches from the window.

* - Wendy makes a fish symbol on the ground; feathers lie about.

    As Jennifer approaches her, Wendy stands up. Wendy curtseys and kisses
    Jennifer on the cheek; Jennifer curtseys and kisses Wendy's forehead.

    Wendy goes back to the ground.



   [Approach: Gate]

            ...My son is waiting.

    Afterward, Jennifer writes on the chalkboard beneath the Bucket Knight.

Jennifer  : My dear friend...

            I'll protect you... forever and ever until I die...

* - Jennifer returns the Bucket Knight's head to its body; the Four-Leaf Clover
    key falls out of it.

    Jennifer goes to Brown and hugs him. She brings out a collar; Brown yelps
    as she places it, but he calms down.

    Next, she ties a rope around the pillar and connects it to the collar.
    Brown looks up at her.

    She curtseys, and then turns to leave. Brown chases after her, but the rope
    snaps him back.

    Smiling at Brown, Jennifer closes the shed door.

This scene plays prior to the Main Menu. Basically, if you want to see it,
simply don't touch anything after you've turned the game on; it will start
automatically.


#$#$#$#$#$#$#
$#  Scene  #$
#$#$#$#$#$#$#

Set against a blank background, roses form, petal by petal. As they complete
themselves, a park fill in the darkness; Jennifer sleeps on a bench. As she
seemingly awakens, Brown walks over to her. Though initially apprehensive,
she reaches out to pet him. Her attention is taken away from Brown, however,
as Wendy and Joshua play with each other amid numerous roses.

Jennifer smiles. She turns back to Brown, but he's disappeared.

The shadow of an airship passes overhead. The scene suddenly changes from the
vibrant park to a bleak field, in the middle of which stands the Rose Garden
Orphanage as another airship flies over it.

   [Scene shift]
Jennifer, Eleanor and Meg curtsey to Jennifer in the Aristocrat Club.


   [Scene shift]
Brown moves about a hallway. He comes to the door to a small room.

Inside, Meg kneels before Diana and offers up a rose. Diana seems to accept it,
wrapping her hands around Meg's; but as she holds Meg's hands, one of the rose's
thorns is presses into one of the latter girl's fingers.

Diana sits, unmoving, as Meg examines her finger. Yet, she smiles and tilts her
head as an idea comes to mind.

She takes Meg's hand into her own and brings it to her mouth, caressing the
pricked area with her tongue.

Eleanor stands outside the room.


   [Scene shift]
Brown finds what looks like a blood stain on the floor. He goes into the next
room, where Amanda is smearing lipstick on herself. Though the result is uneven
and overdone, Amanda appears satisfied and smirks.

Brown enters the room and sniffs a shoe, oddly lying by itself.


   [Scene shift]
Diana, Eleanor and Meg all lie by a piece of paper, coloring it.

Later, in the same room, they all hammer something in unison.


   [Scene shift]
In the woods, they continue to hammer on a large crate. Diana raises her hammer
higher, and slams it down with more force than before.


   [Scene shift]
Brown licks Jennifer to wake her up in the Filth Room.


   [Scene shift]
Elsewhere in the airship, Gregory looks at Jennifer from the shadows, sinking
back into a door as he observes.

Jennifer hands something out to Brown for him to get a whiff of its scent;
she then follows him as he tracks it, eventually locating a key.


   [Scene shift]
Jennifer hesitantly enters a lavatory, armed with a revolver. She approaches a
closed stall; she begins to push open the unlocked door, but Brown starts to
bark at something outside. Jennifer turns to him...

...And from the door, a man grabs her. As she's pulled into the darkness,
numerous Horrible Imps bind her with rope and all drag her down.


   [Scene shift]
Assorted scenes show in the following order:
* Jennifer in the forest with Diana, Eleanor and Meg.
* Diana lifting up Jennifer's head in the Aristocrat Club.
* Jennifer falling into the crate in the Inner Court.
* One of the children drawing on Jennifer with a red crayon.
* Diana holding Meg's finger in her mouth.
* Eleanor fastening a rope around her usual clothes, in which lies the Bird of
  Happiness. Blood soaks the clothes as they tighten.
* One of the children presses they're foot onto Jennifer's face as she lies
  on the ground.
* Water is poured on Jennifer.
* A rat is shoved into Jennifer's face.


   [Scene shift]
Amidst a heavy rain in the park, Jennifer hugs Brown tightly.

As the airship passes overhead, it bears fins in the likeness of a fish, and
moves its rear fin back and forth as if propelling itself through water.


   [Scene shift]
In the rose garden, bathed in sunlight, Wendy and Joshua sit on the ground.

"My name is Joshua. I will serve you, Princess."

Holding hands, they lean forward and gently lay their foreheads together.

"Just, kiss me, please."

They both smile, gazing into the other's eyes.

The background fades away again, returning the scene to darkness. All but one
rose fades away, petal by petal... and then the last is gone.

   A love suicide ~The theme of RULE of ROSE~


Say, where is my shame, when I call your name?
So please, don't set me free; I'm as heavy as can be.
I will do you harm; I will break my arm;
I'm a victim... of your charm.

I want to be dead; when I am, I lament.
I can be so mean; you can beat me.
I would like to shame you; I would like to blame you...
...just because of my love to you.


Oh, love itself is... just as innocent as roses in May.
I know nothing can... drive it away.

Oh, love itself is... just as brief as a candle in the wind.
And it's greedy... just like sin.

Alone... but sane...
I am a... love... suicide...

'Cause love itself is... just as brief as a candle in the wind.
And it's pure white... just like sin.


 [violin]


Alone... but sane...
I am a... love... suicide...

'Cause love itself is... just as innocent as roses in May.
And it's pure white... just like sin.

...If memory serves me correctly, you have finally found the precious doll.
Whether it be lost of found, your faithful companion will always be able to
track it down. With it in your possession, you need only offer it. Offer it
and be welcomed into the Aristocrats... That's your only clue.

When I came here, this suitcase was the only luggage I had. ...I lost everything
in the accident. My mother, my father, my possessions, and even my memories...



   [Pillar]
Tied to this pillar, unable to move, I was all alone. It took a while, but I
finally freed myself. I was always the slow poke... But, that won't happen
again. I'll never let myself be tied up again.

I spent so much time in this room... Who knows how many times I woke up here?
The nights were lonely and cold, but you'd always greet me in the morning.
...Only you greeted me warmly. Thank you so.

It's the detested rubbish bin. No one ever suspected that something precious

could keep my things safe.

My dear Jennifer,
There is nothing to fear. I am always by your side. I will never betray you.
We made an oath, remember?


 25 July From W to J
My dear Jennifer,
I'm so relieved that you are well again! Is that why I couldn't find you
yesterday morning? It's no use trying to fool me! I can see right through
your pranks.
Anyway, thanks in advance. Tee hee hee.


 24 August From W to J
Jennifer,
Thank you for introducing me to Brown. ...But, such a filthy dog is not a good
match for you and me. Just give it to Nicholas or something, and let's be
content with just the two of us.


 10 September From W to J
My stubborn Jennifer,
Is Brown that important to you? It's just a dog. A filthy animal. Please stop
sharing your wonderful smile with that thing... Please smile only at me.


 1 October From W to J
Jennifer the Heartless,
Why didn't you come? I waited and waited for you. Why can't I see you every

For, I yearned for a loyal knight to come to my rescue.

There used to be a picture here, of everyone at the orphanage. It was a picture

The night was quiet, dark, and scary. Yet, it was a mysterious time that aroused
excitement. Some nights, we'd stay awake in secret, hiding from the teacher,
and draw pictures by lamplight. It made us feel very much like adults--something
not possible during the day.



   [Mermaid Princess doll]
A mermaid doll... What a proud and pure creature. Diana yearned to become a
beautiful lady, like a mermaid, but as she grew older, she realized that she was

Amanda was fond of using the sewing machine. When she got absorbed in something,
she'd think of nothing else, especially sewing, which was always on her mind.
If we ran out of cloth or thread, she's just sew rags with an empty needle, over

was found all scattered about, Diana made fun of her, saying, "Mary and Sally
must've ate it." Poor Meg...She was bound by the shackles of foolish devotion...



   [Airship picture]
The future that people dreamt of never came and was soon forgotten. From the
blue skies of hope, it sank into the depths of oblivion. The new life born
from it was an existence devoid of hope. It slowly wriggles its large body

Dear Wendy, my visitor in the window,
Thank you so much for writing to me. The man calls me Joshua, but my name is
Jennifer. I've been in this room ever since he saved me. He's a nice person...
but he won't let me leave.


 10 December  From J to W
Thank you Wendy.
I want to fly away from this room and run with you in the fields... but the man
is so lonely, so sad. I can't just leave him alone.


 14 January  From J to W
Thank you Wendy, my kind and fair Princess.
Is there something that I can do for you?

I, Jennifer, pledge to the fair Princess Wendy:

 Everlasting
 True love

I'm here now, but I'm kind of afraid. Everything is new to me. I'm worried if

Dear Wendy,
I have great news. I found something wonderful! I look forward to every morning
now, and I hope you will too.


 13 August  From J to W
How are you, Wendy? You haven't said anything to me since I showed you the
surprise... Do you like my cute little puppy Brown? Let's take care of him
together.


 20 August  From J to W
My dear We3ndy,
This little guy is just so adorable. When I call his name, he comes bounding to
me. I know you'll like him too.


 24 September  From J to W
How are you doing, Wendy? Are you alright?
We'll always be friends, and Brown can be our friend too. I know you don't
understand, but I can't just abandon him.


 6 October  From J to W
You've got it all wrong, Wendy. This isn't how it's supposed to be.
I never expected you to react this way. All I wanted was for us to live happily
ever after together.


 31 January  From W to J
My dear Prince,
Yes, you are my Prince. A Prince and a Princess must be together, after all,
Jennifer, you are my eternal companion. Just promise to stay by my side, and
save your smiles for me. That's all I ask. We don't need a filthy dog! We can't
let anyone come between us.


 28 November  From W to J
You still have that filthy dog? I'll never forgive you. Have you forgotten your

over me.

she'd turn her wrath on me, snapping, "What are you laughing at, young lady!?"

It's a small locker, but it was just for me. My name was even on it. They made

One day, Mr. Hoffman suddenly disappeared. Clara and Miss Martha soon followed,

We never used umbrellas. On snowy days, we'd go out for snowball fights.

I learned many things at this orphanage... The alphabet... words... how to clean
and do laundry... But, the most important thing I learned... was the lesson I
received in exchange for my dear friend's life... I finally came to understand
myself. My beliefs and the will to stand up for them... I don't want to lose
those ever again.

* The chalkboard has a part of a lesson concerning democracy.

A brat, a know-it-all, an introvert, a crybaby, and an elitist... I know

be a grown-up? Will I ever become one?

The map of this country... That day we flew from England... These memories were

 20 October 1930
RE: Mr. Gregory Wilson

Dear Ma'am, Please forgive the delay in our response. In your letter, you
reported suspicious activity on the part of Mr. Gregory Wilson. After
investigating the matter, we have come to the following conclusion.

There is little to indicate that the said individual is connected to the recent
kidnappings. Mr. Wilson is father to a son who closely matches your description
in your letter. Therefore, we have determined that there is insufficient
evidence to warrant further investigation.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

Officer Dolittle,

My name is Martha Carol, and I work at the Rose Garden Orphanage. In the past
month, I have sent six letters to your attention, but have yet to receive a
response. Have my letters reached you? I ask that you please investigate this
matter at once for the safety of our children.

Yesterday, I saw them together again... Mr. Wilson and Wendy, a child at our
orphanage. I am very concerned for her safety. The two of them have been acting
quite strangely. Oh, it's terribly odd... By strangely, I mean..

Mr. Wilson walking on all fours and nodding... and Wendy appears to be scolding
him... I don't know how to explain it, except that it resembled dog training
gone wrong. Ooo... it gives me the shivers just thinking about it. Please come
investigate this matter as--

All of us loved red roses. Even the name of the orphanage was befitting of an

This is Mr. Hoffman's prized collection of fine dishes. We would sometimes sneak

Leaving your home behind... ...did you find happiness?

Mr. Hoffman loved to broadcast over the PA system... ...while we were cleaning,
while we were eating, and even after we were in bed. He always announced our

I thought it was all rather silly, anyway.

Recently, the children have been engaging in odd activities and spreading

 16 August 1930
Today, I was busy catching up on my work, when Clara came by to offer me a hand.
I guess my teaching paid off. I was grateful for her kindness. In the wee hours
of the morning, she was still working, so I gently took her to bed.

I can hardly believe it. My little Clara, bless her heart, is already 16 years
old.

She tells me she wants to stay in the orphanage and help with the daily chores.
Maybe I should seriously consider the offer. Tomorrow, I'll discuss it with
Martha.

...... At the time, it seemed so frightening... Were those scary things that
attacked me just figments of my imagination...?

This is simply inexcusable! My precious koi is gone. The children must be
