Yami Shibai - Japanese Ghost Stories s05e10
Titre original : Flower Reading
A man is caught in a rain shower on his way from work. He watches a young couple walk down the street, grumbling how he used to be like that. He wonders when it will stop when he sees a girl in a tie-dye shirt doing the "loves me, loves me not" game of plucking flower petals and repeating, "It'll stop, it won't stop." When she plucks the last petal, she concludes that the rain won't stop and that her fortunes are always correct. The man asks what she's doing out here, but the girl responds that she hopes his wife will be there for him. She then asks if she could read another fortune and pulls out another flower. The man tells her she should go home if her parents don't know where she is. She ignores her and starts plucking the petals off, saying, "I'll go home, I won't go home." The last petal is plucked, and she tells him she won't go home. She asks for another reading, the man doesn't think of any on the spot. Upon seeing his wedding ring, she'll say she'll just guess if his wife will come home and proceeds to pluck the feathers, saying, "She'll come, she won't come." The man finds the whole thing ridiculous, but decides to play along just for fun. The last petal is plucked on, "She'll come home." The man tells her that won't be possible. 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. You're dead, you're not dead..." When the last petal comes up as, "You're dead." the girl says, "Goodbye, mister. You won't need anymore fortunes."
