Yami Shibai - Japanese Ghost Stories s05e06
Titre original : Giveback-sama
A girl, Yuka, was dumped by her boyfriend, Tomo-kun. At school, she watches him with his new girlfriend and her best friend, Reiko She swore she would never forgive Reiko for stealing him. At the library, Yuka finds something that peaks her interest: a book called, "Relationship Spells The Handbook!" She reads a passage about a ghost called Giveback-sama. According to the book, "If you dial 9999 in a phone booth at 11:59 PM, a woman named Giveback-sama will answer. If you ask her, 'Give back (insert lover's name here)-kun back to me,' she will return him to you the next day. However, you must call her again at the same time the next day to thank her or something terrible will happen..." At first Yuka dismisses it as nonsense, but when she comes home later that day, she decides to give it a try. She rushes to a phone booth and at exactly 11:59 PM, dials 9999. At first nothing happens, but when she hears the money being dispensed from the change slot, she asks into the phone for Tomo-kun and takes off running, forgetting to hang up the phone. The next day at school, Yuka notices white flowers on Reiko's desk, the sign that she has died. And sure enough, one of her friends confirms that she died in a traffic accident. She remembers the ritual she did, but she tries to brush it off, calling it coincidence. Suddenly, Tomo-kun enters the classroom, his face full of grief as he obviously blames himself for not walking her home. Yuka tells him it was not his fault. That night, Yuka remembers the final warning of the Giveback-sama ritual and rushes to the phone booth with seconds to spare, only to find someone already using it. To her horror, it's Reiko. Reiko disappears as the clock strikes 12. The story ends with the sound of blood splattering and the image of the phone swaying in the booth; its interior covered in blood.
