A woman named Kana moved to a new apartment and invited her friends over for pizza. She explains that the place just opened up and the rent was lower than expected. Her friend, Eriko, drunkenly says it's probably one of those "too good to be true" moments. Suddenly, they hear something like scratching coming from next door. Deciding it's probably best for them to leave, Kana walks her friends out. However, she freezes when she sees fingers and an eye peeking out of the neighbors' door's mail slot only to instantly shut. Suddenly, her friend calls out, breaking Kana's thoughts. As she walks to the car, Kana looks back toward the neighbor's door, wondering who that was. As she walks back to her apartment, the neighbors' door opens a bit, revealing a light from inside. Wondering if she should introduce herself, but deciding it's probably not the best time, she continues walking. Suddenly, the light goes out, leaving nothing but darkness. She hears the scratching sound from earlier and calls out who is there and what do they want. The moonlight shines on the apartment and Kana can see women clawing against the apartment room's walls and floors, making wheezing sounds and pleading to be let out. Suddenly, she hears the scratching come from above. And when she looks up, she seems a pair of feet dangle in front of her before their owner, a dark-haired, pale-skinned girl with orange eyes drops from the ceiling. "Looks like we have another new friend," she says. The story ends with Kana joining the clawing neighbors and the hanging girl, and the voice of a real estate agent answering a call for a new tenant asking to live in the new room that just opened up...

But then the girl points to the side and the man is astonished to see a woman in a white dress and holding an umbrella. The girl asks what would she like to read next, but the man tells her she's told enough and says his thanks. The girl watches as the couple leaves and says, "Oh, I see.
