The Last Part

As the villagers realize that the town is doomed by the oncoming forest fire, Dr. Ozaki sees the outcome as a defeat. Despite all his efforts, in the end the village will be destroyed.

Tomio finds Sunako praying inside the burning church. She attempts to flee, but he catches her, and stakes her by the hands to the wall. Weeping, she begs for mercy. He is enjoying this, and declares that he won't let her off quickly or painlessly. Out of nowhere, Seishin arrives and proceeds to hack Tomio to death with a cleaver.

Sunako is ready to stay and let the fire cleanse her sins from the world. Seishin explains that as exiles from the human world, such sins and punishments do not apply. They can only walk the endless wasteland of despair. The image of Abel, the younger brother of Cain, was simply a representation of the part of himself which fit in with and was loved by the world that he used to live in. That part of him died to despair, forcing Cain from that world to wander the wasteland.

Tomio finds Sunako

Epilogue. Several months later

In Tokyo, at the publishing company for Seishin, his editor Tsubara has a discussion with a reporter. Seishin's latest book has just been released - titled Shiki. The reporter is following up on the fire in the village where Seishin lived. Stories of the dead bodies found in the rubble have become an urban legend. The village survivors don't talk about it, and some suicides have taken place. Seishin provided the manuscript, and then disappeared. Tsubara has no way to reach him. Staring out the office window, he sees a girl staring at him from the street -- Sunako. She wanders off, meeting up with Seishin down the street, and they disappear into the crowd.
