"Destine Histoire" by yoshiki☆lisa
Set in 1924 in the fictional European country of Saubure, Kujo Kazuya, an exchange student at The prestigious St. Marguerite's Academy, fatefully meets a girl named Victorique in the a garden at the top of the Library tower.
Initally, the episode starts with the preamble for the first mystery, the running of the hares, with a cult woman adressing her audience, and rabbits being killed by dogs in a ritualistic hunt.
afterwards, Kazuya is introduced as the Third son as an Imperial Japanese soldier, and has travelled far to school. he meets his friendly teacher, who suggests he visits the library tower to read up on the local legends. when he is reading, he notices a strand of gold hair which had come from above him, and he went to investigate, climbing up the many flights stairs, nearly tiring himself out, and then reaches the top, and enters the garden at the top.
Kazuya thinks first that she's a doll, and is startled when she begins to move, and further unsettled that she tells him she's been waiting for him. then, coming from the elevator in the tower, Inspector Grevil de Blois has come to Victorique with an interesting mystery: an old woman was found shot dead in her wheelchair, with a bullet would on her face as she was looking at the door, and yet no one entered or exited the room until an Arabic maid forced open the door lock with a gunshot. The "who" and the "how" of the mystery are immediately obvious, but both Victorique and Grevil don't understand the "why" just yet.
The next day, the Inspector takes the credit for solving the mystery, and invites both Victorique and Kujo to a yacht that the grateful rich girl lent him. However, Victorique discovers another clue on the yacht, an invitation to a dinner party onboard a cruise ship.
