Absent Tears (出ない涙, Denai Namida) is the 13th chapter of the Kiseijuu manga series, written and illustrated by Hitoshi Iwaaki.
Taking the ferry to the hospital where his father is located, Shinichi meets a young girl named Makiko, where he gets into an altercation with an adult. At the hospital, the police are discussing what happened to Kazuyuki. They don't believe a monster killed his wife and injured him, but that she was trying to get his life insurance money. Unable to stay at the hospital, Shinichi stays at a hotel owned by Makiko's family.
