There’s no need to slow down time at the start of this new cycle, as you need the clock to strike 10 a.m. You can use the Song of Double Time to speed things up, if you like. When the hour approaches, head to the north end of East Clock Town, and enter the Mayor’s Official Residence after it opens at 10 a.m. Inside the Mayor’s Residence, enter the door on the right side of the reception desk to visit a cozy lounge. Speak with the woman in yellow here, whose name is Madame Aroma, and agree to help find her missing son, Kafei. Madame Aroma then hands you Kafei’s Mask. However, it’s possible that you’ve already obtained this mask by speaking with Madame Aroma earlier in the adventure. You’ve been given Kafei’s Mask and recruited to locate a missing person! Wear this to inquire about the missing Kafei.
Put on Kafei’s Mask, and begin questioning the townsfolk. You’ll learn that Kafei is having some sort of relationship problems with Anju, the girl who works at the Stock Pot Inn. Additionally, Kafei has been seen around the Laundry Pool. Question the locals until the clock nears 2:00 p.m., then enter the Stock Pot Inn, located in East Clock Town. Anju takes up her post behind the front desk just before 2 p.m. Talk to her while wearing Kafei’s Mask, and you’ll learn that she waits every day for the postman to deliver news from him. Remain in the lobby until the postman arrives. He delivers a letter to Anju at the front desk at 2:10 p.m.
Wait until the letter is delivered, then speak with Anju again while still wearing Kafei’s Mask. She tells you that she’s just received a clue that can help you find Kafei, and she asks that you return to the inn at 11:30 p.m. and meet her in the kitchen. It’s a date! There’s nothing urgent to do until your meeting with Anju. Leave the inn, and locate the nearby Deku Flower. Put on the Deku Mask, and then play the Song of Double Time to advance to 11 p.m. on the Night of the First Day. Afterward, dive into the Deku Flower to glide onto the Stock Pot Inn’s straw roof. Cross the roof, and go through the door to enter the Stock Pot Inn’s second floor. (The inn’s front door is locked this late at night, so that’s why you’re using this entrance.) Go downstairs to the kitchen, which is located at the end of the first floor’s hall. Wait in the kitchen for Anju to arrive; she shows up just before midnight. Speak with Anju, and she’ll tell you that she has received a letter from Kafei. Tell Anju that you’ll help her, and she’ll give you a letter to mail to Kafei in return. Deliver it for Anju by taking it to a mailbox. Exit the inn, and find a mailbox. (There’s one to the south near the Town Shooting Gallery.) Inspect the mailbox, and mail the letter that Anju gave you. Now you just need to wait for the postman to deliver it. That won’t happen until tomorrow, so play the Song of Double Time and skip ahead to the Dawn of the Second Day. The next part can be tricky, so it’s recommended that you save your game.
The good people of Clock Town have hinted that Kafei has been seen around the Laundry Pool. Go to the Laundry Pool, which is found in Clock Town’s southwest corner, and cross the little bridge to reach a door to the north. The door is locked tightly—could Kafei be hiding in there? Backtrack across the bridge, and hide behind the big tree near the pool. The postman arrives around 3 p.m. and rings the bell near the Laundry Pool’s bridge to signal a special delivery. To speed things up, use the Song of Double Time. Advance to 2 p.m. so you can watch the postman arrive. After the postman rings the bell near the bridge, a masked child emerges from the locked door across the pool. You can’t let the masked child see you, so remain hidden behind the big tree until the child moves onto the bridge to meet the postman.
When the masked child nears the bridge, leap directly into the pool, and swim straight over to the north door from which the masked child emerged. You can’t use the bridge to cross the pool, or the child will see you and flee. Hurry and enter the door before the child returns and locks you out. You did it! Once you’re through the door, head upstairs and wait for the masked child to return. Talk to the child when he arrives and agree to keep his secret. He’ll say that he trusts you and takes off his mask to reveal that he is, in fact, Kafei. Kafei appears to be a child, not an adult with whom a grown woman like Anju would have fallen in love.
He explains that a strange masked imp turned him into a child. It must have been the Skull Kid! However, Kafei’s youthful appearance is not the reason for his shame. Instead, Kafei explains that a prancing man with a grinning face stole a precious wedding mask from him. Could he mean the evil thief that you’ve encountered in North Clock Town and Ikana Canyon?
