The Feast of Horror - Part 2 is the 4th chapter of the Skip Beat! manga series.
After watching many impressive performances, Kyoko goes onstage for her audition with a knife and radish. What talent will she do?
Kyoko remembers telling her Darumaya boss and his wife that she's aiming to be a star and is going to the LME audition. She had to ask her Darumaya boss for a special favor, if she could use his knife for the talent she's going to do. Back in the audition, things seem to proceed smoothly as each girl presents her talent, like dancing, playing an instrument, etc.
The raven-haired woman, Kanae Kotonami, is able to memorize a book with just looking at it and then read it from memory starting from where the judges tell her to.
Kyoko finally gets to show her "talent" while holding her boss's knife and a radish. The other people in the audition laugh hysterically and Sawara die from horror. Suddenly, Kyoko is making a rose out of the radish, and amazing the judges.
Kyoko finish cutting the radish in a very long, very thin layer, which makes it look like a nice flower, an art known as katsuramuki. Kyoko apologizes and calls it like a "cabbage". Even though it's not really a rose, all the judges are really impressed, including Nakazawa and Matsushima. Kyoko has made a huge impact on the president, again.
Next part of the audition consists in the girls answering a phone call and the judges will meter their reactions. Kanae Kotonami is very sure of herself, especially after crossing words with Kyoko earlier.
When Kanae's turn comes, she is very fast in reacting with a really sweet face, with a little bit of tears and saying a simple "I'm so happy!" All the judges are really impressed at her speed and quality, and so is Kyoko.
When Kyoko's turn arrives, she listens to the phone, the other end starts telling her how sorry he is, how he misses her, and how he wants to go back with her. Kyoko remembers Sho and very powerful and horrific waves of energy start emanating from her...
But suddenly, she offers a very cute and happy smile. "Get back together? I'm so happy! I was hoping you'd say that and come back one day...."
The LME president and the other judges were impressed at her reply, until...
Kyoko throw the phone down and scream at it. Her demons also came out. She remembered what Sho did to her and says "Did you think I really meant that?! You jerk! If 'sorry' were enough, there'd be no need for HELL!!"
Kyoko suddenly realizes what she just did and goes down to pick up the pieces left from the broken phone then she apologizes.
But unfortunately, the LME President, Lory Takarada stares at Kyoko and is having a really dark cloud hovering over his no-longer-happy face!
Characters in Order of Appearance
- There's a common expression in Asia: If sorry were enough, then there'd be no need for the police. Kyoko distorts this phrase by replacing "the police" with "hell."
