Tonight was the night, the night where this would all end, at least for Chicago. This would be a difficult ritual, but it was worth it.

"Yuuki, what apartment should we preform the ritual in?"

"305... Where the first deaths occurred."

"Where is George"

"He'll be here... I must set everything up."

I lit four candles, at each corner of the room, next I placed the metal bowl in the middle of the room. I slowly poured Kayako's blood into it, If I had spilled even a single drop, the ritual would be impossible to perform. I wrapped the blood covered robe of Naoko around my body. I placed Kayako's journal on one side of the bowl, and the new one on the other side. In a cardboard box was the body of Toshio's beloved cat, Mar. I mixed Kayako's hair in with her blood. I opened a bottle of Sake, and placed it beside me.

George ran through the door, sitting beside Haru and I. We all sat around the bowl. Soon, I began instructing the two.

I took a sip from the sake, passing it around.

All three of us spit it out.

"The bad taste of the sake basically told us, this curse is dangerous to us all, which is why I must say this protection poem, "Su gi Juon! Su gi Juon! Arigato! Arigato" Now, we are all protected temporarily."

"Now what?"

"First I must warn both of you, No matter what you see or hear, do not speak! It could kill us all..."

"Now I must summon the Saeki family... "When someone dies in the grip or a powerful rage….
A curse is born.
The curse gathers in that place of death.
Those who encounter it will be consumed by its fury.
Those who survive will carry the curse with them…
Until it is reborn."

Suddenly, I saw Kayako, Toshio, and Takeo all surrounding the circle

"They're here, Now we can begin,..."

I grabbed the bowl from the ground, handing it to George.

"When I begin reading her journal, You must drink this all, including the hair, it may not taste well but this is the most important part of the ritual, agreed?"

"Yes"

"'Kobayashi...Kobayashi... Kobayashi... I love Kobayashi...' 'Today Kobayashi drank too much, I had to help him home' 'A girl has a crush on my Kobayashi/'... 'He's not my son, He's not my son, she betrayed me'... "

George drank from the cup. Kayako appeared behind him, wrapping her long hair around his body.

Naoko appeared, cutting her sisters arm. Kayako's blood dripped into the bowl. I dipped my pen into the blood and opened the new journal. and then began writing,

" This curse began from pain, sorrow, rage, and jealousy. This building is not meant for your haunting. Go back, return to your resting place. Leave this place at once, When someone dies in the grip or a powerful rage….
A curse is born.
The curse gathers in that place of death.
Those who encounter it will be consumed by its fury.
Those who survive will carry the curse with them…
Until it is reborn.
The curse only belongs in its' resting place
The curse is meant to stay their and consume any who encounter it.
May I wish peace onto this family"

I shut the journal closed, Dripping Kayako's blood onto it. With my fingers, I wrote 'Juon' On the journal. Then I placed the two journals, the rest of Kayako's blood, the sake, Naoko's robe, and the cup all into the same box that Mar was in.

I looked over at Haru, and gasped. Takeo had taken over his body. I looked down, and spoke

"Haru, I'm so sorry... So very sorry.. I should have protected you better, but I must do this... to save others..."

I grabbed the box, and ran out of the apartment, I began screaming 'Everyone get out! Get out! Fire!"

Everyone escaped, except for George and Haru. Now, their souls were part of this curse. I felt terrible , leaving them as sacrifices, but It was the only way I could end this.

I watched, as the building burned from the inside out.

I placed the box down, running back in. There was one thing I had forgotten, and needed. I grabbed a blade out of my pocket, darting up the stairs. Where Georges body once was, lay the body of Kayako, the woman I once knew so well.
