The Third Night
A Vengeful Ghost
A man is carrying a child on his back. There is, however, something sinister about the boy that makes the man eager to get rid of him. The man determines to abandon the child in a forest. Despite appearing to guess his intention, the boy leads the man across the paddies to the foot of a large cedar at the edge of the wood. It is revealed that the boy is none other than the spirit of a blind monk, whom the man had murdered in that very place many years before.
