The legend of this game is that primroses are blessed by the fairies and that if the players make a wish, the primroses make it true. This story is told by a young boy to the protagonist as a young girl in the primrose garden next to the church (now abandoned) that was the confessing spot of the first game, while they are playing hide and seek with the young boy's brother. In her first day at school, the main character remembers that the two boys were the Sakurai brothers.
