Symposium Kisume & Yukari

Season 98 (1984), 2nd of Yayoi (March)

涸れ井戸から白骨死体が見つかる

Skeletal Remain Found from the Dead Well

しかし、その正体は!?

But, Its Identity was!?

雪解けも始まったがまだ寒さも厳しい幻想郷、人間の里に悲鳴が響き渡る。いつもの平和な幻想郷模様だったが、その日は少し様子が違った。

In Gensokyo as the snow starts to melt, but still bitterly cold, a scream echos through the human village. Although the air was peaceful in Gensokyo, it looked like something was different that day.

子供達が使っていない涸れ井戸の周りで遊んでいたところ、白骨化した遺体が見つかったのだという。当時、涸れ井戸は入れない様になっていた。

It's said that when children were playing around a dried-up well, they had found a person's skeletal remains. At that time, the well was supposed to be off limits.

何故見つかったのかというと、中から妖怪釣瓶落としが出てきて「お前の落とした死体はこれかい?」と言って、ケタケタ不気味に笑いながら白骨死体を放り投げたのだという。幻想郷の人間は全て管理されており、今のところ行方不明者は居ない。その為、誰の骨なのか全く判らなかった。

It was found because a youkai Tsurube-otoshi came out of well saying "Is this the body you have lost, eh?" with a cackling uncannily as she threw the remains to them. All of humans in Gensokyo are under control by the youkai, and there is no one missing at the moment. Which means, we had no clue who this skeleton belongs to.

さらに問題な事に、骨を無縁塚に埋葬するまでの間放置したままにしていたら、忽然と消えてしまったのだ。これでは誰の骨なのかどころか、事件があったのかどうかすら判らなくなってしまった。

Making things worse, the skeleton disappeared while it was being left alone in preparation to bury it in Muenzuka. At this rate, it won't be possible to determine if this is an incident, let alone who's remains this is.

妖怪の専門家、八雲紫氏はこう語る。

The youkai expert, Ms. Yukari Yakumo says:

「うーん、恐らくそれは地底の妖怪の仕業ね。あいつ等のパワーは人間の負のエネルギーだから、平和ボケした人間達を威かしたかったのかも知れないねぇ」

"Well, I suppose it was an act done by the youkai of the underground. Since their powers come from the negative energy of humans, maybe she wanted to scare humans who were careless about their threat."

地底の妖怪と地上は不干渉の約束を交わしている。その為、これが地底の妖怪の仕業だというのならば、事態はややこしくなるだろう。我々天狗としても地底とのいざこざは避けたいと思っている。

There is a nonintervention pact made between the youkai of the underground and the surface. Which means, if this was an attempt made by the youkai underground, the situation would be complicated. Even we tengu think that trouble with the underground should be avoided.

「でもね、肝心な骨が残っていないんじゃあ、ただの見間違いだったかも知れないわね。いや、見間違いだったのよ、間違い無く」

"Although, since we don't have the all-important skeleton, it could have been a simple misjudgment. No, it was a misjudgment, definitely."

白骨死体は白樺の見間違いという事で落ち着いた。人間の里には何の事件も起きていなかったのである。

The incident was settled as the skeletal remains were a misjudgment of a silver birch[1] There hadn't been any incidents happening at the human village.

後日、涸れ井戸は埋められていたのを確認した。それも誰の手によってなのか判らないが、何の事件も起きていなかったので問題ない。

At a later date, we have confirmed that the dried-up well was buried. The person that did this is unkown, but since there wasn't an incident in the first place it's not a problem.
