Call (CALL (コール) , Kōru?) is the seventy-first chapter of The Promised Neverland.

Synopsis

Emma and Lucas answer the mysterious phone ringing

Plot

As where the last chapter left off, a mysterious phone rings behind the duo, awaiting to be answered. Emma is the one to pick it up, but holds it so both of them can hear whoever is calling. Once answered, it's revealed to be William Minerva. Minerva begins his call with an apology, stating that the elevator is in fact a way to get to the human world, but no longer works. The elevator was blocked by someone, likely a person Minerva worked close with, and was betrayed by them. 

As he goes on, Minerva mentions that the Goldy Pond they know (the one above ground) was a settlement for those who did escape, and wasn't a hunting ground at all. As Emma questions why, Minerva answers for her, telling them through the recording that he wanted to atone and make himself feel better for what his family did: he is an ascendant of the Ratri clan, the same ones who made the promise. He was the 35th head at the time, and couldn't stand the injustice of human children in the demon world were facing while humans in the real world lived their lives normally. As a result, he began giving messages throughout the years as William Minerva, hoping some children would recognize them as morse and escape the farms, eventually escaping to the settlement. However, since the person who betrayed him most likely knows of the settlement, he doubts it's in use as of now. The same person has his own clan after him, and most likely is dead by now. 

However, he leads some hope by telling Emma and Lucas that there is more than one way to get to the human world. Rather than taking the elevator at Goldy Pond, the escapees can also use another path. The one specifically mentioned being Grace Field House, as well as other Premium Farms. Minerva claims that if anyone wants to escape, he'll send supporters to help retrieve the cattle children. If not, he offers that they find a way to change the promise, even going as far as saying it would be okay to restart the demon-human wars. A third option is suggested, however, being to find the Seven Walls. As a final note, he congratulates the escapees for finding him, and expresses how he wanted to hear their voices and know someone got there at the very least. Before he can leave, in a hurry for his own reasons, he explains everything is in Marvine's bed. 

Finally hanging up, Emma and Lucas celebrate, knowing Minerva's intent was to atone for what his family did and give a better future to those suffering from the demon world. Apart from finding out his original intent, they grow happier with the fact that there is more than one way to get out of the demon world that doesn't rely on the elevator. Lucas now accepts the fact that he can blow up Goldy Pond without regret, finding what he needed without any stones left unturned.

At last, the duo deal with Marvine's bed, a secret code word only escapees like Lucas and Emma can understand. Thanks to the books Minerva left, they both know Marvine, the lemur that traveled with Ugo in Minerva's fictional books, slept in a drawer. With a full desk in front of them, the two begin their search
