A woman visits the mansion of a bibliomaniac to have her wish granted. She wants to be the most beautiful woman in the world.[1]


A man offers flowers to a woman, since he’s late for the date. She runs off to her home only to have an envious attack. She couldn’t accept how the other girls were more beautiful than her, wearing dresses more expensive than hers.

She visits the mansion of a bibliomaniac. The woman threatens to kill herself, pushing a knife against her neck. The man was sit next to a black-haired doll. He asks what’s her purpose there. She affirms that, although she tries her best, there are always women more beautiful than her, no matter how much she grooms herself.

Rumors say that the man has a mysterious book containing forbidden knowledge. She wants him to use that power to make her the most beautiful woman in the world. The man thinks that she’s beautiful enough, that soon she’ll find a man who loves her. However, she’s determined to have the perfect beauty, like the doll next to him, even if there’s no turning back. He uses a key on the doll’s chest to make a Phantom Book appear.

When she regains consciousness, everybody notices her god-like beauty. The woman is happy with all the attention, until she notices the inhuman appearance of the people around her. Looking her reflection in a window, she realizes that she also has foreign features. Desperate, she drops the Phantom Book and begs to have her face back. She doesn’t see the bibliomaniac reclaiming the Phantom Book.

Back to the mansion, he observes how the Phantom Book now has an illustration of the woman. Dalian asks why she was not satisfied after having her wish granted. Wes explains that beauty is based on the judgement of others. People can’t be happy if they depend on someone to value themselves. Wes wishes to hear Dalian’s opinion about that someday.[1]
