Come to the Carnival
<i>Memoria... Both Akia and Itsuke would find themselves standing in their original spots from before. They would find themselves back in the places they were when the man's game had begun. To Setsuna it would appear as though the balloons had been popped and that she had won the game. The man didn't even attempt to hide his disappointment as he spoke.</i> &quot;It seems like you won. Tsk, didn't expect another happy ending.&quot; <i>He'd then address Akia and Itsuke directly.</i> &quot;Careful there or I might just let those attacks become lethal to those you aim them at. I can amplify memories too, like layering them on top of each other. I wonder what would happen if someone were to take such attacks multiple time over. Bit unfortunate that I can't just aim the memories of your own attacks back at you but that's fine. We have plenty of time to keep playing these games and there's nothing either or you can do to stop me. Unless I'm forgetting something that is.&quot;
Come to the Carnival
<i>The darts of course would appear to Setsuna as if they had simply missed. As if the balloons had suddenly increased in speed to try and dodge her darts. The man would hold up the pill bottle, being devoid of a label. The pills inside suddenly looked gold in color.</i> &quot;The prize is these two specially carved golden nuggets of happiness. They're both made from 100% real gold and said to bring their owner good luck. Seems you missed those first two shots but you still should have...uh...a few more darts right?&quot; <i>The menu Woz would find would present questionable options in regards for &quot;American&quot; food: HamaBarger Frie SteamedDog Girlled Cheese The people working there as well almost seemed to be somewhat unaware as they spoke in exaggerated English but with clearly empty, cold expressions.</i>
Come to the Carnival
&quot;I don't actually remember my stand's name but it has the ability to manipulate the memories it has stored and the memories of everyone within its influence. Regardless of what you believe you were doing you won't remember it for long. That is the power of my stand. In a sense it is immortality though in truth anyone who works for the boss is actually much stronger than I am. Well, not that you'll ever figure out why. You won't even remember why even if you do find out.&quot; <i>While the pills effect wouldn't have completely kicked given it was spit out, Akia would no doubt at least feel a partial influence as her own stand's power began to waiver slightly. Memoria... Itsuki would find his sword grazing his enemies arm as he didn't even attempt to move out of the way. Memoria... Suddenly, Itsuki would find himself in his previous position before moving, as if nothing had happened at all.</i> &quot;Oh yeah...you're here. I forgot all about you honestly. Don't bother even trying to do anything. Someone with such a simple stand can't even hope to hurt me. When it comes to the physical world my stand has no weakness. Now, how should I try to kill you both next? Oh...&quot; <i>The man would turn to face Setsuna who had just appeared. Memoria... He'd suddenly, appear in front of the girl with several darts in his hand.</i> &quot;Hello there, miss. We're currently having a special contest where we randomly select people to enter a special game. The rules are simple, just throw these darts and try to pop the balloons. No need to be concerned, we have this area cleared for a reason.&quot; <i>Setsuna would no longer be able to see Akia or Itsuki as they are. Instead, she'd see moving balloons in front of her. The man would try to hand her 6 darts and prompt her to try and pop the balloons in front of her. Woz would see the options for food sprawled out before him. One tent was serving fried noddles and BBQ, another would be serving Takoyaki, and finally there's be stall simply serving what they called &quot;American Food&quot;.</i>
Come to the Carnival
<i>The man would seemingly be unable to do anything back in retaliation. Memoria... His skull would be pressed by the stand as he could do nothing but helplessly try to summon his own stand. A humanoid figure would appear behind him. It was oddly infant in nature being much smaller than an average humanoid stand and with weak arms the could barely manage anything. The only unique feature of it would be the many question marks covering its body and a gas mask that seemed fused with its face. It's weak arms would attempt to try and pry Akia's stand's arms off but to no avail. The man's head would be crushed leaving nothing but a bloody mess behind. He was for all intent and purpose dead. Memoria... Akia would suddenly feel a hand being shoved onto her mouth, trying to force a pill into her mouth. The hand would quickly pull away as soon as she became aware as the man was now a couple feet behind her.</i> &quot;That was a brutal death. So, I'll offer you one just as brutal. That pill is one that contains the stand virus in a refined state. To normal people it has about a 90% chance to grant them a stand and a 10% chance to kill them outright but when a stand user takes the pill they instantly become ill and unable to move for around an hour.&quot; <i>He'd be reading off his notebook while holding a bottle with 2 more pill inside in his other hand.</i> &quot;Not being able to move? Better spit out that pill before it dissolves in your mouth.&quot; <i>The pill will have already began dissolving inside Akia's mouth as whatever chemical was inside began spilling out. Meanwhile... Setsuna would be at the entrance to the carnival. Three paths laid before them. The one to the left seemed to lead to a couple tents where shows were being performed. It seemed that a musical performance occurring in the third tent had just gone into intermission. The middle path seemed to lead to a variety of concession stands. The right path would finally lead to where all the rides were, including a roller coaster, a ferris wheel, and a random-looking thrill ride. The right path was oddly less crowded than the others.</i>
Come to the Carnival
<i>Memoria... Akia would find herself back on the ground. She'd be able to feel as her memories once again became hazy. There would be an uncertainty as to what had just happened. Akia upon taking the path would notice that the que for the roller coaster seemed to almost be empty. A man sat on a bench nearby. He had long and messy hair that was blue in coloration and wore a cheap coat of a similar color to his hair. He also had on his belt what looked to be a notebook. He'd pull the notebook up and seem to write something inside before retuning it to where it once was.</i> &quot;Well, that was fun. I'll keep that recorded so I can get a little closer to learning your capabilities. Not that you'd be aware of what just happened. So, what should we do next?&quot; <i>The man would only be interrupted by the arrival of Itsuki which actually seemed to dour his mood a bit. The lightning would singe his hand, causing the knife to fly out of it and for him to exclaim with a bit of pain.</i> &quot;Ow- what was that for? Didn't I tell you to stay out of this? I don't want to have to kill anyone aside from my target. That'd be too much to remember!&quot;
Come to the Carnival
<i>The only point in the carnival that would be high enough for Akia to reach in time with he grappling hook would the top of the thrill ride from before. It was currently active but it looked though a section of the very top of it still seemed to remain completely still while the rest of it was spinning. Itsuki would find that he would have no trouble moving freely at the moment, as if anything that had impeded him before was simply gone now. Even the crowds seemed smaller, possibly due to the show that had started. Over near the attractions he'd find what looked to be a girl in a strange daze and a man staring at her from a bench and holding a knife in his hand. It seemed as though everyone else was staying away from the area for one reason or another and that they perhaps didn't even notice the man or the girl there. Of course, he'd be able to recognize the man as the one he saw earlier in the tent.</i>
Come to the Carnival
<i>The cart is about to reach the peak of the tracks when it would stop momentarily. Despite this the voice would continue speaking.</i> &quot;Who am I? Uh...Hmmmm...I don't have a name to give as I forgot what it was. You shouldn't even bother trying to tell me anything. I have a horrible memory and can only retain details like my employers name. Oh, I guess I can tell you about that. I'm an assassin who works for the mafia. I've been hired to kill you, miss. But of course, the roller coaster is about to get to the best part.&quot; <i>The boy from before would suddenly be gone and a hand quickly seemed to pull away from Akia's seat belt before disappearing into the seat behind her. Her seat belt would come undone as the cart began to descend. She wouldn't even have a moment to react as she could feel her body beginning to lift out of the cart. Itsuki would begin to see a flickering image appear on the stage. It would be a man with long, unkempt hair with an unnatural dark shade of blue to it. He wore a rather cheap looking coat of a similar color to his own hair and had what looked to be a notebook attached to his belt. He'd seem to pull up the notebook and look it over.</i> &quot;Let's see...Yeah, you're not my target. Doesn't even seem to mention you here. Whatever, less to remember for me. Seems you already have a...what's it called....a thing? Guess you don't need one of these pills they gave me then. Hey, kid. Try not to get in my way. I've got to...I have to...uh...who am I killing...Right, the girl by the coaster...I think that's right? Wait...Your stand talks? Itsuki...Wait! Itsuki!&quot; <i>Suddenly, the image of the man disappears from the tent. Itsuki would begin feeling their head clear as they suddenly recalled how they ended up here. They had first tried to enter the comedy tent but had stalled for some reason at the entrance. In the amount of time they remained frozen the show started in the third tent but they for some reason had wandered into the first tent, where they were now.</i>
Come to the Carnival
<i>The kid would quickly pull Akia over to the ride, his depressed look from before suddenly replaced with excitement. It wouldn't take long for the staff member to allow them to go on the ride. Memoria... It was like a blur... Memories fading in and out... Akia would find herself on the ride now. The cart she and the kid were in would be climbing up a section of the track before a drop.</i> ???: &quot;Memoria...Memoria...Memoria... Fate is a strange thing, is it not?&quot; <i>The voice speaking to her would sound close but there was nobody in the cart other than her and the boy and the voice sounded too old to possibly belong to a child. Not to mention that his mouth didn't seem to move either.</i> ____________________________________________________________________________ <i>The seats would soon fill up as it seemed as though everyone in the carnival had been waiting for a chance to see the band play. As soon as the last seat was filled the band would introduce themselves before their performance was about to begin. They did a traditional countdown but upon reaching 1... Memoria... Itsuki would now find themselves in what seemed to be a different place. They were still sitting in a tent but nobody else was there now. The tent's walls were dusty and old, garbage seemed to be strewn about the floor, and flies were swarming around certain areas of the tent. Itsuki would suddenly hear a voice coming from the stage.</i> ???: &quot;Are you still aware? I don't have a good memory but I'm only supposed to be targeting those with the potential right now, I think? Did I just slip up or perhaps do you have secrets left to unveil?&quot;
Come to the Carnival
<i>Still, the boy didn't seem to react at all but he'd look up to Akia with a hopeful glance.</i> &quot;Really? Will you ride the ride with me then?&quot; <i>The boy would wait to see if she was going to go and que up for the ride as well. It was clear though that he wasn't trying to raise his hopes up too high. As time passed for Itsuki, the band would seem to finish setting up. Nobody seemed to notice him as other staff and crew members came in to make sure everything was in order. Before they knew it the tent would begin opening up to the public as people began to slowly enter one by one.</i>
Come to the Carnival
<i>The kid just continues looking down, not wanting to make eye contact with Akia or anyone. They answer her hesitantly as if he wasn't quite sure what to say.</i> &quot;I-I'm not sure where my parents are. I wanted to ride the roller coaster but I was turned away and told that I couldn't ride without an adult.&quot; <i>He'd point to the roller coaster's entrance, still devoid of a line and with a bored looking employee standing at the entrance.</i> <i>Itsuki would find that the entrance to the first tent was unguarded and that inside there seemed to be a few band members preparing to perform. Based on their look they seemed to be from America. Most likely a group that was hired by the Carnival to fly all the way out. There would be a guitarist sitting in the stands and tuning his guitar, a drummer that was on stage trying to make sure everything was in place, and a keyboard player that was simply sitting at his keyboard with a drowsy look.</i>

<i>It would be a few days before Akia heard from Koji once more. If he was still in town then he clearly had hid himself away where no one could easily find him. The next time she'd receive a message from him it would be in the form of a text message. The message wouldn't contain anything besides information that was prevalent to their goal. It would simply direct her that a trustworthy informant would be waiting at the carnival but would only give them a clue as to the location of The Mad World if she met with them directly. There wouldn't be much other than that, aside from directions as to where the informant was waiting. At the local carnival that had just come to town. They would be waiting by the ferris wheel near the back of the park. There was also one final warning left at the end of the message: &quot;The Mafia knows who you are now. Be careful of suspicious individuals. There's no doubt they're already watching you.&quot; The carnival entrance would be unsurprisingly full of people. It wasn't necessarily packed full but there would be a moderately sized crowd near the entrance and throughout the park.</i>
A Tiny, Little Cemetery
<i>The cemetery Akia would find herself in was one that seemed to be somewhat far away from any public areas in Tokyo. It almost seemed to be forgotten to some degree as the gate that held its entrance was obviously rusted and old just from looking at it. This place was actually well know for being haunted according to rumors, especially with some odd incidents coming to service. There was talk of ghosts being spotted of distant relatives and voices being heard in the night. There was even recent reports of the ground itself attempting to swallow people whole as some form of the dead lashing out against the living. Regardless, Akia and anyone who followed her would find themselves walking around a set of many graves, all bundled together. The area itself also seemed to contain some overgrown trees that seemed to surround the whole cemetery with a small forest, keeping anyone from seeing what was happening inside without entering themselves.</i>
