Well, I've checked the apartment. I couldn't find any sort of bugs or cameras anywhere. For some reason, whatever cameras that may have been installed have been removed. Still hasn't stopped Poe from hanging up curtains all over her walls. I'm tempted to do the same.
Anyway, Poe came up to me on Friday, asking to watch the tapes with me, and of course I agreed, since I'd been considering asking her myself, since she's kind of involved in this too, now. Isn't that great? We've got our own little psychotic home video movie night. A shame we don't have any popcorn or milk duds lying around.
But yeah. We watched the remaining two tapes. Here's the transcript for the first.
Another hidden camera in another apartment. This one's not our apartment though. Pretty sure it's not even the same apartment building, and judging by the fact that her hair's still purple in this tape as opposed to pink, I don't think it's even in NYC. Nee-chan storms into the room, slamming the door behind her. Ulysses hears the noise and enters the room. I guess that this either takes place before his death, or that his injuries, however lethal they looked, weren't fatal.
U: Whoa, whoa, Nee-chan. Settle down. What's going on?
Nee-chan ignores him, and starts furiously pacing around the apartment.
N: I'll kill her! I'm going to kill the bitch! [She picks up a lamp and throws it at the wall, shattering it, then grabs the couch and flips it over.] Kill, kill, kill, rip out her fucking throat!
The conversation that follows is kind of hard to make out, since it's mostly Nee-chan screaming angry obscenities and Ulysses trying to calm her down. She continues around the apartment, apparently trying to cause as much damage as she can. Finally, Ulysses manages to restrain her, haul her into her room, and lock the door behind her, letting out a sigh of relief and muttering something that the microphone doesn't pick up.
There's a segment of tape missing where I don't know what happens, and it picks up in the bathroom (I'm definitely checking for bugs again) with Nee-chan standing at the sink, staring into the mirror.
N: Don't look at me like that. I see how you're looking at me. Think you're so much better than me. Well you're not. I'm better than you, you...stupid....you're stupid! [Silence] Yeah, you would say that, wouldn't you? Always acting like you know better than me. But you don't, so don't tell me how to live my life. I'm doing fine on my own. [Silence. When she speaks again, she's more agitated.] Shut up! I said I don't need you, so just...just go away! Leave me alone! [Silence again. She covers her ears.] No! No, no! You're lying, I know you're lying, just quit lying! I can see what you're doing, and you're just jealous. I know that you don't like me anymore, so stop trying to make me think that he doesn't like me either! It's not working! [More silence. She turns away from the mirror, wrapping her arms tighter around her head.] Shut up! I told you, just shut up!
At this, she turns around and starts screaming at the mirror, pounding on it with her fists. Her hands start bleeding as the mirror cracks and breaks, but she just keeps pounding at it, sobbing and crying. The tape cuts off suddenly during this. Not sure why. Probably just cropped the rest for some reason or another.
End Tape #4
We watched Tape #5 shortly after that. I'll put up the transcript and explain what exactly's been going on this weekend later tonight.
