Japanese Cryptic: The yellow parka

Translated from Japanese by Shishou(師匠)


Cryptic Story

On a certain day, I went to the apartment of my friend, who lived on the opposite side of a shopping district.

That apartment has a common toilet on the first floor. My friend's room is in the innermost portion of the first floor.

We drank together until the next morning; therefore,  I went to the toilet immediately after that.

While doing my business in the toilet, I saw a guy wearing a yellow parka who was shouting "GOOD MORNING!!" and was looking around restlessly. I replied, "Good Morning" and returned to the room without giving it much thought.

After a few minutes, my friend went and came back from the toilet. He said, "There was a guy who greeted me. I too greeted him back."

After that, my friend, who was lying down shouted, "Hey! You gotta see this. Come here fast!"
He showed me a news channel on TV. The headline read as "Random Attacks in Broad Daylight!"
According to the testimony of an old woman: "It was a guy wearing a yellow parka."

When the guy got arrested he told his motive: "I stabbed only those who didn't greet me back."

  1. Hmm, the culprit in the yellow parka is already caught. So, who is the random guy in the toilet greeting the two of them? Hahaha. I'm sorry if I could not guess right ^^

    1. The parka guy is the attacker. He got caught after the incident in the apartment.

  2. Still, there's something else to question with this story. Why was the yellow parka man looking around restlessly when saying "good morning", and why so loudly? Unless he's just mentally unhinged, but that's not a fun horror answer.

    1. Maybe he was trying to find someone to greet.

      He said that loudly because he wants the other people to hear his greeting clearly.
