 雪の博麗神社。
 間欠泉は止まる事は無かったが、幽霊や怨霊と言った地底の霊が湧いてく
る事は無くなった。
 地底の住人は思った以上に今を楽しみ、平和に満足していた様である。

A snowy Hakurei Shrine.
The geyser itself didn't stop, but the ghosts and vengeful spirits from the underground had stopped appearing.
The denizens of the underworld seemed surprisingly satisfied with their situation.

 地上の妖怪が危惧したような企みも野望もとうに失われ、地上を攻め入ろ
うとする者は愚かな動物に僅か見られただけだった。
 これからは地底都市も恐れる事はない。霊夢達も比較的自由に行き来出来
る様になった。その代わり、地底の妖怪もちょくちょく地上に顔を出す様に
なったのだが。

Any ambitions or plots that the above ground youkai had feared had long since vanished, and in general, the only people who tried to come above ground from below were foolish animals.
There was no longer anything to fear from the underground city. Reimu and company were able to go to and fro relatively freely. In return, though, some of the underground youkai also began to appear above ground from time to time.

  霊夢 「でさ、何か釈然としないんだけど」

Reimu "Well, I'm not really satisfied that I know what happened."

  魔理沙「鴉が熱すぎて間欠泉が止まらない。
      猫が困って地上に怨霊でサインを送っていた、って事だろ?」

Marisa "The crow was too hot, so the geyser couldn't stop. So the cat sent the evil spirits up here as a sign something was wrong, right?"

  霊夢 「鴉が熱すぎる理由は神様を飲み込んだからでしょ?
      色々と判ってきたんだけど……
      でも、誰かが何らかの目的で鴉に力を与えたんじゃなくて?
      力を与えた理由がさっぱり判らないの」

Reimu "The crow was too hot because she swallowed up some god, right? I know some of the details ... but, didn't someone give her that power to try to fulfill some sort of purpose? I just can't understand what that is."

  魔理沙「そこんとこ、どうなんだ?」

Marisa "Hey, you over there, what do you think?"

  空  「うにゅ?」

Utsuho "Unyu?"

 神社の茶の間には何食わぬ顔で空とお燐がいた。彼女達はすっかり神社に
馴染み、間欠泉で茹でたというゆで卵を頬張っていた。

Utsuho and Orin sat in the shrine's tea room, a pair of innocent looks on their faces. The two were quite familiar with the shrine, and were stuffing their faces with eggs boiled in water from the geyser.

  魔理沙「温泉卵ならいくらでもあるから食べても構わんが、
      そろそろ何が起こったのかをだなぁ」

Marisa "Eat as many of the eggs as you want, there are always more, but why not tell us what happened?"

  空  「うーん。何度も言ってるけど、私が灼熱地獄跡で遊んでいたら
      地上から神様が降りてきてね。
      『この辺の地獄鴉で一番強い者を捜してるの』って言ってきた
      んでそれなら私ですって即答したわ。
      そしたら『なら、貴方に力を与えます』って貰っちゃった」

Utsuho "Well. I know I've said this before, but I was playing in the former Hell of Blazing Fires, when suddenly a god came down from above ground. It said it was looking for the strongest hell raven in the area, and I said right away that was me. Then it said it would give me power, and I got it."

  霊夢 「おかしな話ねぇ。
      地上の神様がそんな事する意味が全く判らないんだけど。
      旧地獄の底にいる鴉に力を与えて誰が何の得をするの?」

Reimu "But, that's so strange. I just can't understand why a god from above ground would bother doing that. Who would stand to gain anything from making some crow in what used to be hell powerful?"

  空  「私が得したわ。強い力を貰って」

Utsuho "Well, I did! I got power."

  お燐 「もぐもぐ。
      灼熱地獄跡も昔はあそこまで熱くなかったのさぁ。
      地底が地獄から切り離された時から、徐々に冷え込んで
      いってね。
      特にさとり様が上に地霊殿で蓋してからは暗く寂しくなった
      もんさ。
      でも、おくうがおかしくなってから急激に火力が増したのよ。
      間欠泉の制御もままならない位にね。
      もぐもぐ」

Orin "Nom nom. The Hell of Blazing Fires didn't even used to be that hot back in the day. It's slowly been getting colder even since the underground was cut off from Hell. It's gotten really dark and lonely ever since Miss Satori sealed it off with the Palace of the Earth Spirits. But, when Okuu turned weird, the fires suddenly roared into life again. So hot, that geyser was uncontrollable. Nom nom."

  霊夢 「……灼熱地獄が再燃する事で誰かが得をするのかな?
      もう一度、その力を与えた神様について思い出して欲しいの。
      どんな風貌だったのか、何か目的を話していなかったかとか」

Reimu "... I wonder who would benefit from the Hell of Blazing Fire being rekindled? Could you try remembering the god that gave you power again? What did they look like? Did they talk about what they were trying to do?"

  空  「うーん。
      もうあんまり覚えてないねー」

Utsuho "Uh-uh. I can't remember much more."

  お燐 「鳥頭よねぇ。
      無駄よ無駄、さとり様の眼を持ってしても判らなかったよ。
      もうすっかり心から抜け落ちてるってさぁ」

Orin "You birdbrain. It's no use, even Miss Satori couldn't see anything with her third eye. It's probably fallen out of your heart already."

  魔理沙「所詮、鳥の頭だな」

Marisa "Well, she does have a bird's brain."

  空  「確か山から来た神様だとは言っていたけど……二人組で」

Utsuho: "I'm pretty sure they said they came down from a mountain ... both of them."

  霊夢 「二人組?
      あんた、そんな重要なことを今初めて口にしたでしょ?」

Reimu: "Both of them? Hey, that's the first time you've said that, and that's pretty important."

  お燐 「そんな事より温泉造ろうよ。
      間欠泉の周りにさ、温泉入ってくいっと……溜らないねぇ」

Orin: "Anyway, let's get in the bath already.

  魔理沙「お前は猫なのにお風呂が好きなのか?」

Marisa: "You're a cat, but you like taking baths?"

 霊夢と魔理沙はうすうす感じていた。
 その神様とはあの山の上にいる二人の神様なのではないかと。

Reimu and Marisa had their suspicions.
It was probably those two gods from on top of the mountain.

 鴉に聞いても拉致があかないので、こうなったら自ら確かめに出かけるし
か無いと思った。冬の山は厳しいが、地底の灼熱に比べれば楽なもんである。

They tried asking the crow more, but she had nothing left to say, so they thought they'd just have to go see for themselves. The top of a mountain is no place to be in winter, but compared to the fires of the underground it wasn't so bad.

 地獄の鴉に強大な力を与えた理由と、
 これから何が起ころうとしているのかを。

 Why did they give the crow that power,  And what would happen now?
