I only took back what was mine

from before!

That hurts!


What are you doing?!

She and the man were

in on it together.

I'm an actress.

I was fooled by an amateur.

It was like I was the one

who was murdered.

I was the one who was

fooled and murdered.

Me? I'm the tenth woman.

Say... why don't you count?

You're easy to see from up here.

Look, ladies...

there are only nine of you.

Are you leaving already?

- I'm sorry about last night.

I fell right to sleep.

Another meeting?

- It's not a meeting,

but I can't be late.

We need to talk.

I've had to work late

every day recently.

I finally finished at 3...

still I came, though I didn't

want to disturb you.

You said you wanted to talk.

I've been thinking to quit acting.

Let's talk about that when

we have more time.

You're not surprised, are you?

Look... see my face.

I just woke up.

My mind's still foggy.

I've lost confidence in myself.

I want to die.

- You always get this way.

I'm serious.

You don't believe me.

- I believe you. I do believe you.

I'll come over tonight.

I forgot, I have to work tonight.

I don't understand...

why you say such things.

You're a veteran of Western theater.

Many say you're the most talented

actress in the country.

You have a bad reputation

at the station.

Who told you that?

Does it surprise you?

I just don't believe it.

I heard you'll be fired.

- That's not right!

I suppose not.

I thought you were in a hurry?

I am. See you later.

Oh, I forgot.

Yabata's Shooting Star opens tonight.

We're video taping.

Then, you're free today.

See you.

Can we come out now?

- Sure.

I heard him leave.

Can I use the bathroom?

My... it's already nine.

He came at four, so he's been here...

for five hours.

It was very enlightening.

I learned what Kaze is like

when he's around other women.

Go ahead.

I hope you don't mind if I sit down.

Kaze-san... it's the first time I've

hidden in the wardrobe of the woman...

he was cheating on me with!

Not to be rude, but please leave.

I'm very tired.

What was the point of

setting this trap on Kaze?

Nothing in particular.

You hid us in your wardrobe.

Actresses sure do have chutzpah.

That's not so. I do it all the time.

- Liar!

Actresses are born liars.

What are you talking about!

You barge in here late at night...

then when Kaze came,

you hide in my wardrobe.

He immediately fell asleep.

When I opened the wardrobe

to send you home...

you were both snoring.

- Really?

You're thin-skinned.

You've had it in for me ever since you

stumbled on me walking with Kaze.

I was walking on the stage with Kaze...

We were just talking about work.

You were helping

with the set for the show.

When you saw us, you fell

off a ladder and dropped a chandelier.

So... is that how you broke your arm?

It's all Kaze's wife's fault.

She must be a cold-hearted woman.

Have a seat, I'll make coffee.

So long as you're here.

I can't just let you leave like this.

Have a seat.

Actually we wanted to talk to you.

- She's right.

We came here because

we thought you could help us.

I'll tell you what Kaze's wife said.

She advised me to pay him no mind.

She didn't care that he was running

around on her.

Do you think he's such a wonderful man?


- Not at all.
