Each parent will have a different way of showing affection to their children, but in general, every action must come from love, otherwise it will become a tragedy that the child is fortunate to grow up. The city never stops haunting.
If a person suddenly dies in resentment, the place where that person leaves will form a land filled with resentment. It is also a place that attracts lost souls, those who cannot reincarnate, and those who are still alive but unlucky enough. The reward for going astray is the tortured spirit to the point of exhaustion, and at the time of death the soul also becomes the nourishment that expands the land of resentment.
At this time, it takes people who possess special abilities, often called “No One” to be able to purify resentment and save suffering souls. Wuji cannot see, cannot speak, and cannot express emotions. Because they condense the power of “words” into “carvings” and use it to purify lost souls….
At the beginning of the game, a tired man trudges down the mountain road with a suitcase behind. At the end of the street, he took out a string of fireworks, wrapped it around his body, and started to light it. The sound of firecrackers resounded in a corner of the forest. A couple who were dating in the rain were surprised to see fireworks in the sky, but before they could understand what was happening, dozens of arms were dragged into the dark.
The main character is a female Wu Jia who witnessed the scene, so she immediately rushed over, and was also dragged into the land of resentment. In the dark space, she approached the small monster. This is probably the owner of this place, reaching out to comfort it to remove resentment, but was taken to another dimension.
The place looked like an abandoned hospital, where she was attacked by a monstrous humanoid creature, so she had to run away. After cutting off the monster’s tail, Wu Jia picked up a little girl’s red dress, bow and shoes, accompanied by a smudged birth certificate, only the gender of the child could be seen. “male”.
She noticed something strange so she immediately used her power to create a seal and successfully heard the voice of a woman saying that she liked girls, but unfortunately gave birth to a boy. The little monster appeared again and said something that only the Void could understand. She reached out to touch it, the monster’s eyes opened, continuing to lead her on the journey of its life.
On the old train carriage, an aunt was sharing half an orange with a child, but the boy’s mother was annoyed, scolding her son for not knowing the rules when he saw that the boy was about to accept the orange. That boy is a little monster, he said that since he was young, his mother raised him very strictly, not to laugh, not to be picky, not to speak his mind.
However, no matter how hard people try, no matter how much people praise him, he still never touches the image of a “good child” in his mother’s lap. As he got older, the boy began to enjoy playing video games with his friends. But when his friends kept talking about his future dreams, he just kept quiet and replied, maybe he wants to be a child who listens to adults to be recognized by his mother.
In fact, the boy also has a dream, wants to become a hero like in the game, wearing armor, holding a sword, and being praised by everyone. But the psychological barrier about the mother in his heart was too great to scare him. Maybe it was only when it rained that the boy could secretly reveal himself. But a child who understands things always has to suffer, he grows up, because of his ignorance, he has been mentally abused by his mother many times.
Even asking for money to buy books to study was thought by her mother as taking money to play games. Because his friends were afraid of his fierce mother, no one dared to play with him anymore. At school, the boy also became the subject of bullying, forced to steal money. When my mother found out, she not only did not comfort her but also beat her son for daring to steal. Teachers at the school blamed him for being too cowardly, too troublesome, and did not dare to stand up and fight back.
Those harsh words became demons, eating away at the poor child’s heart and body. Growing up, that child became an ordinary salaryman like everyone else, but still as weak as before. On the day of his father’s death, the young man was scolded by his boss for a leave of absence, and when he returned home, his relatives pointed out that he was unfilial. When it was time to say goodbye to his father for the last time, he still did not feel any intimacy.
At work, the boy got his first friend, Mr. Heo. Although Mr. Heo often asked the boy to do this and that, having a colleague to share the work with, going out to drink after work made the boy very happy. However, every time the two go out, heo only talks about himself, often pretends to be condescending, and often uses the name “best friend” to order and borrow money.
It can be seen that Mr. Heo doesn’t really want to make friends, he is just enjoying the feeling of superiority when placing himself next to a shy person. Things continued like that until one day, the mother called the boy, saying she wanted to arrange for him to marry a stupid girl. Because he wanted to please his mother and prepare to get married, the young man came to ask for money from Mr. Heo to buy a bride price.
But at this time, Mr. Heo turned around and did not want to pay, and scolded the boy for being ungrateful, a friend who only knew about money and demanded to cut ties. When other colleagues saw this, they expressed sympathy and said that they knew that Heo was a bad guy from the beginning. But good words are easy to say, why not stand out at that time to dissuade. When the story was over, the new colleagues pretended to be cats and dogs and said a few words that were comforting but seemed to mock the stupid guy more.
Feeling that everything was too much for him to bear, the young man ran home, but waiting for him was only the endless nagging of his old mother to the woman who was going to be his wife. The boy had no one to confide in, he could only suppress the pain in his heart. When the wedding day came, the young man only knew how to receive the bride according to his mother’s instructions, the relatives who came to celebrate only laughed at him.
An idiot, marrying a stupid girl, and then giving birth to a stupid child is too reasonable. The wedding day was originally a happy day, but the boy was not happy. After getting married, the boy’s daily life was still boring, from a boy he became a man.
Married life is inherently without love from the beginning, so every passing day is a torture. After a while, the mother urged the couple to have children quickly, to avoid people’s objections. Although the man has no feelings for his wife, he still tries to fulfill his duty as a husband.
However, after having a princess together, the man couldn’t take care of her because of his busy work, even the day his daughter performed at school, he couldn’t attend. And that was also the last day he saw his daughter because she had unfortunately died in an accident on the way home.
The wife suffered because of the loss of her child, so she constantly blamed her husband, she hated him, she criticized harshly saying that she had tried very hard to build this family. For the sake of her family, she tries to take care of her children, ignoring the disparaging words of the world in order to be a good wife and daughter-in-law. What did she get in the end? Nothing. What about her husband? Living only in self-doubt and powerless in her own world, ignoring her family.
It can be seen that the character of the husband is typical for those who are hurt and want to hurt others. The man who faced his wife’s reproaches just kept silent and didn’t say a word. The wife was completely helpless before that attitude, so she finally decided to divorce because she could not continue to work for such a person anymore.
The man did not hold back or prevent it, it seemed that all the sufferings of life had completely engulfed his emotions. Carrying the suitcase to his daughter’s grave, he whispered that he would take his daughter to see the fireworks as promised. No one knows what the man did, we only know that he then dragged a full suitcase into the woods.
Along the way, he constantly wondered why he came to this world? And why when you feel that this world is too dark, you don’t have the courage to leave it? He has lived a life of cowardice, but now has the courage to put an end to it all. Next is the scene we see at the beginning of the game when he transforms into brilliant fireworks in the gray sky, to fulfill his promise to watch fireworks with his daughter.
Understanding all that the man had to go through, Wu Jia completely purified the resentment in that soul. Help him get out of the cycle of suffering created by himself.
The story in chapter 1 of Filthy Us or “Smeared” does not have many thrilling details. In return, the game has strongly exposed the hidden corners of a child’s personality from birth to adulthood. Because the child was born not according to the wishes of his father or mother, that child had to go through a lot of bitterness during his childhood years.
Can’t laugh, can’t cry, don’t know what to dream about. That child becomes a weak boy who only listens to his mother, but when something happens, no one is on his side. All turned that boy into a weak man when he grew up, and then the man himself wanted to use the same old method to hurt his small family.
His life is full of regrets when he has never lived up to his desires. But perhaps at the last moment, the man gathered all the courage of his life to fulfill his daughter’s dream, turning himself into fireworks. Perhaps he hoped that the glimmer of light he had lit would dispel the dark night?
But such action is never liberating, because resentment still turns him into an evil demon. It is only when he is purified by the No One that he is truly liberated. We cannot judge the man right or wrong, because we have never experienced his life. But perhaps, one of you watching this video will have more experience than the rest?
In the game there are 4 verses that I am very impressed with:
“I am like fireworks
Until it blooms
No one looks up.”
I wish those who are watching this video have the courage to open their hearts, to find their own peaceful sky. This life may not be beautiful and poetic but also because it is not perfect, every new day is a great adventure that we need to embark on to discover!!!
