In one of the days, Kozue asked her father to retrieve her ball that was in the roof. He accepted her humble request and climbed the roof. During this task, he fell to his death. Kozue never told her mother about the accident nor did she share with her her emotions of guilt and remorse. When Makie discovered her husband's dead body, she told Kozue that he went missing and so the two begin their search for the deceased in the mountains daily, each hiding their secrets.
After several days of the two's disappearance, a neibghour came to visit. The only thing that remained from them was the black stain from the Tattooed Curse.
Kozue remained at her mother's side as they succumbed to the Manor of Sleep. The two searched aimlessly for their loved one. Once the feeling of remorse started tearing Kozue little by little she deserted her mother unable to contain her grief.
Kozue haunts the Manor of Sleep and puts the blame of her father's death upon everyone she encounters. This indicates that she did not want to feel responsible for her father's demise. After the completion of the Mother and Daughter side quest, Kozue leaves a scrap of paper containing her confession.
