Instead, what he witnesses is...an animated horse girl. Making a fool of herself in front of her peers. Becoming befuddled by everyday occurrences. It's a brave new world for horse-girl, and she is having difficulty adjusting. What is this feeling brewing in Papa's chest? This strange shame, interspersed with sharp pangs of unbridled rage and discomfort? Please, let this video end. No more. NO MORE.
Twenty minutes later, the ending credits roll. VA-chan asks "So, what did you think Papa? It's cute, right?" Papa looks up at his daughter, standing above him with a hopeful expression. He does his best to raise his cheeks to form a gentle smile - he cannot fail her now, not when she has worked so hard to succeed. "Yes, yes. It is cute! Very cute." She smiles, "Thanks Papa! Hopefully, it runs for a while. I'm looking forward to continuing the story!" In truth, VA-chan feels a bit hollow inside. Yes, this is work. Yes, it pays well, and has the potential to lead to greater things. It would, however, be more fulfilling if it had meaning, some deeper truth laying in wait. Alas, she knows that ultimately, there will be none.
It is late now. While the family is sleeping, Papa is sitting on the front step, smoking a cigarette. He can no longer see the face of his little daughter in his mind's eye. There are only horse girls now. His little daughter is dead. She has killed herself. He brings the Strong Zero to his lips, drinking deep.
VA-chan is dead. Papa is dead.
GOD IS DEAD.
