Japanese Cryptic: The Shriek


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

After taking a shower, I submerged my body in the bathtub to get relief from the stress that had accumulated in my body since the morning. Just after a few moments in the bathtub, I heard a loud shriek that filled up the whole bathroom.

I looked around the bathroom to find the source of the voice. No one was there.

Could it be an intruder? I wrapped a towel around my waist and started looking around the house for anything suspicious. Nothing...no signs of any intruder!

I returned to the bathroom to investigate it once more.
Don't tell me the intruder is hiding inside this? I looked at the lid of the bathtub.
I removed the lid...still nothing!

So, it was just my imagination, I guess.

Tomorrow is a day off. I think I will spend some more time in the bathtub.

Japanese Cryptic: The Creepy Mirror


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


A certain middle-school had a huge mirror on the landing of the staircase.
It was rumored that anyone who stood in front of that mirror at 4:44 ended up dead.

One day, 3 girls of the arts-club were all alone in the art room after school, finishing up their art works. As the clock approached 4:44, they jokingly decided to pay the mirror a visit.

Though, they didn't look in the mirror when they reached there. They decided that the loser of the rock-paper-scissor game would have to test the urban legend.

So, the loser girl went there and stood in front of the mirror exactly at 4:44.

...Nothing happened.

The 3 of them laughed at the rumor and decided to return to the arts-club room.

...It was now 7:00

The girls decided to head to their homes. The girl, who had tested the rumor, wanted to remain for a little more time to finish up her work. 

"You two go ahead. I'll stay here for a little longer."

So, she stayed there alone, trying to finish her work.

After finishing the work, she headed out of the art room, and towards the mirror.

The clock was pointing to 7:16

She looked in the mirror.

Then...

A pair of hands came out of the mirror and pulled her inside.

The Japanese people sure love their mirrors.

Japanese Cryptic: Unexplored Paradise


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

I am a freelance writer. To get inspiration for my next article, I've come to a certain place in Africa.
The theme of my next article is "Unexplored Paradise".

The native people, using their broken Japanese, invited me to their village that was deep in the mountains.

When I reached the village, I was greeted by a lot of skinny natives.
They looked very happy. Could it be that it was rare for them to meet a Japanese, or are they this cheerful always? I don't know, but I was kinda embarrassed.

After meeting with the village elder, I was led to a small hut.

Inside the hut, they had prepared a bathtub for me.

I seriously needed this after such a long journey. I'm honestly grateful to these people.

One native told me using his broken Japanese, "You take a bath, we have a grand feast."

Wow! They have a party for me after the bath. That's nice!

I jumped into the bathtub that had medicinal-leaves floating on the water.

Japanese Cryptic: The Ghost With Knife


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story



He has the special ability to see ghosts.

Battlefields and murder-sites--He can see ghosts for sure at such locations.

He says that the ghosts have bloodshot eyes and are quite resentful towards humans.

Today, he went to a building for his work. Normally, he works from his company's office, but today he was on a business trip.

He sensed something odd as soon as he entered the building. He realized that the building had been the site of a murder incident.

He became melancholic by realizing that. The ability to see ghosts is not as exciting as it is portrayed.

He completed his work quickly and headed out the room to avoid encountering the ghost.

His attempt turned into a failure when he encountered the ghost of a man standing in the corridor.
The man's eyes were wide open, and he was holding a knife in his hand. His mouth and the knife, both were dyed red with blood.

This was the creepiest encounter till now.

He didn't want to get involved with the ghost, so he pushed it aside.

He got suprised that he could touch this ghost.

The ghost raised the knife over his head.

Japanese Cryptic: Chitchatting Through The Window


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story


Old woman: "You still there?"

I: "Yes, I haven't gone anywhere."

Old woman: "Eh...? Sorry, I couldn't hear you."

She was standing on the other side of the window, outside the house. I was inside the house, and that could be the reason why she wasn't able to hear me properly.

I: "It has started raining~"

I hurried to the veranda and quickly secured the laundry that I had put earlier to dry.

After that, I decided to warn my neighbors, who live in apartment 603, about the rain.

Japanese Urban Legend: Kuchisake Onna


Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Urban Legend


Kuchisake-onna-manga-portrait
Am I beautiful?

"Hey! Which one of us do you think is the prettiest?"

It was the evening of a snowy day.
Three girls with face-masks and a boy carrying a school bag on his back were inside a dimly-lit tunnel.

"Who, I wonder?"

"I am!"

"No, I'm prettier!"

The boy remembered about a certain rumor that was the talk of the town those days. The dread had already taken over him, as could be seen from his face that grew paler with every passing moment.
He was still thinking of the best possible answer...

Japanese Cryptic: The Sofa



Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)

 

Cryptic Story

 

My senpai, O-san, had a friend called S(pseudonym), who, out of Jealousy, turned into my senpai's stalker.

However, S went missing after some time.

We were quite relieved but not sure if it was another of S's tricks.

One day, a sofa arrived at O-san's house.

O-san had certainly ordered a sofa, and the arrived sofa was also very similar to the one ordered. However...

"What the hell is this? The color is all wrong. The sofa looks old too."

"You should call the manufacturer."

The manufacturer came to senpai's house and apologized for the mistake.

"I'm deeply sorry. I was told by your friend to deliver this sofa to you."

"It must be S!! Tch...harassing me in such a way!! "

"Leaving that aside, deliver me the sofa I ordered."

"Understood."

I was getting creepy vibes from the sofa, so I asked the manufacturer what they were going to do with that.

"Umm...what would you do to this old sofa."

"Ah...it's quite old, so it can't be recycled. Most likely, we'll put it in an incinerator."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This sounds similar to a certain Edogawa Rampo's story.
