Ep 22: Confession
EPISODE 21: CONFESSION
It was morning in the Rangers Guild. Erasa woke up that morning feeling content with the events that took place the previous day. It was the first day of the weekend, Ayes’ day. In Novation lore, unexpected secrets always came to light on Ayes’ day because Ayes was the magnifier of Alpha’s light.
Erasa was happy but there was a little thing that troubled her mind.
“Shin used the inverse solidification technique to avoid Armageddon’s strike. That technique was also used by the Shin from my childhood” Erasa thought as she recalled Shin evading the Black Squad’s arrows.
“I can’t remember Shin’s face clearly but he does resemble Ayenhayze” Erasa thought.
“Could it be that…?!” No, it’s just a coincidence after all, I saw Shin die” Erasa thought as she tried to hold back tears.
Meanwhile, in the Ayenhayze residence…
“OOOOWWW! IT HURTS!!!” Reis screamed in pain.
He had rolled off his bed and now it felt as though all his bones were broken. If you should know, that was as a result of his fight with Darak which ended in a deadly stalemate. Deadly because after the fight both boys could feel nothing but pain. Aurora’s healing powers closed their wounds but the pain was much deeper than just superficial wounds. Shin woke up.
“You disturbed my sleep you idiot!” Shin yelled angrily.
“I’m sorry but I couldn’t help it. All I can feel now is pain. I swear I’ll never fight Darak again” Reis promised painfully.
“Oh don’t worry I’m sure Darak feels the same way by now”.
In the Kira residence, “OUCH! Gently Aurora, do it gently” Darak grunted in pain.
“Well next time you consider a fight to the limits, think of the aftermath!” Aurora yelled as she stomped on Darak’s back.
“YEEEOUUUUCH! HEY AURORA! YOU DID THAT ON PURPOSE!!!” Darak roared angrily.
“Oh, did I? I’m sorry mighty Darag-Arӧkna, Vung-jya spirit of FLAME!” Aurora roared as she stomped on his back again.
“I swear Aurora, if you weren’t a girl, I’d have beaten you up right now!” Darak threatened.
“Perhaps I should get Aurora to massage you instead. Her super strength will…”
“Please don’t Aurora! I take that back” Darak pleaded.
“How are the mighty fallen” Aurora sighed.
Back in the Ayenhayze residence. CRRRAAACCCKKKK! CRRRK! CRRKKK! CRAAAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKK!!!
“EEEEEOOOOOOOOWWWWWW!!!” Reis screamed in pain for that was the sound of his spine straightening itself out.
“If you didn’t want to fight you should have said so” Kyla said as she walked on Reis’ back.
“I wanted to baaaaouch! You know Darak. He’s so stubborn plus the look he gave me as Darag-Arӧkna said ‘You have no choice Reis. Choose liberty or death and they both mean a fight to the limits” Reis complained.
Tears were flowing down his face.
“I’m actually shocked because your wounds heal very quickly however the pain you’re feeling now lasted since last night” Kyla said.
“I’ve honestly never felt anything this painful” Reis said.
“Well yeah but thanks to you and Darak, I now have a custom Ranger uniform” Shin said and Kyla laughed.
“Yeah, yippee for you. I’m the one suffering the consequences” Reis complained.
Master Jin entered the room.
“Kyla! Shin! You two defied my orders yesterday!” Master Jin scolded them.
“Don’t scold them Master. If Shin wasn’t there I’d be dead and Darak would have remained possessed if not for Kyla’s presence” Reis defended his siblings.
“I guess you’re right. I saw the Dragonlord after the incident and he asked me not to reprimand you because according to him your actions are beginning to unravel the mysteries surrounding the Tragic Legend” Master Jin sighed.
“The old man’s proving to be useful after all!” Shin laughed joyfully.
“He also told me you’d probably say what you just said. Show some respect and maturity for crying out loud!” Master Jin scolded.
“Jeez, I really hate that old man” Shin complained.
“I guess it’s useless trying to teach a rock how to move without being thrown” Master Jin said.
“Hey watch it Jin!” Shin yelled.
“When will you start showing the proper respect?!” Master Jin yelled.
(Hey! You guys are dragging the story. It’s time to move on!)
“See? You guys have made the author angry” Reis said.
“Shin, head to the pharmacy and get some painkillers for Reis” Master Jin instructed.
“Let the Gs do the talking” Shin said with a cunning smile.
“Jeez, I have to bribe my own son to run errands for the sake of his own brother” Master Jin said as he gave Shin an amount of Novatian Gs.
Shin sniffed the money.
“Something’s not right…the density of the smell…hey Jin! You’re down by one G!” Shin yelled.
“You’re one greedy kid” Master Jin sighed and added an extra Novatian G.
“Stay here and rest. I’ll be back really soon” Shin said as he left the house.
He took the route that went past Kamikaze Restaurant. He was lost in thought as he walked past the restaurant.
“I know I’ve heard the name of The Nameless ‘Truthful’ Drakengaӓrd before but I can’t remember where” he thought. All I know about him is that he is the Silver Drakengaӓrd but it’s almost as though I’ve actually met him before and Reihel does sound familiar to me now that I think of it” Shin thought as he stared at the sky.
Suddenly he bumped into someone carrying a basket and the basket fell to the ground spilling its contents.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I’m really sorry. Let me help you with that” Shin apologized without looking at the person.
“Shin?” the person called.
Shin raised his eyes to look at the person’s face. It was Erasa.
“Oh hi Erasa. I didn’t see you” Shin said nervously.
“Oh no! The spices have spilt on the ground. Mom’s going to kill me! These were presents for Old Lady Kamikaze” Erasa said worriedly.
“It’s my fault. I’m sorry Erasa. Is there any way I can help you?” Shin asked.
“Not unless you could take me to the Village Of Shades and back in a jiffy” Erasa said.
“The Village Of Shades? I think I know that place. It’s past Novatio” Shin said.
“Yes, and it’s really far” Erasa agreed.
“B-but I think I can take you there with my psychic abilities” Shin offered.
“Won’t that be dangerous for you? I think it would be stretching your abilities beyond your limits” Erasa didn’t agree with the idea.
“Nope, that’s nothing. I can do it. That’s if…you will believe in me” Shin said nervously.
“I guess I could ask Dr Gensai to lend me some spices” Erasa sighed.
“Is that a yes?” Shin asked.
Erasa nodded with a smile.
“Here, take my hand. My teleportation spell will not work on you unless we are bonded by touch” Shin said.
Erasa seemed nervous but she took Shin’s hand.
“Okay, now shut your eyes for a moment” Shin instructed.
Erasa obeyed. Shin shut his eyes and let his psyche travel over Novatio till he identified the Village Of Shades and then, he activated his technique and then, they were gone from the Guild.
For a moment, Erasa felt lighter than air and after a few seconds, she felt the ground beneath her feet.
“You can open your eyes now” she heard Shin say and she obeyed. When she opened her eyes, she found out that they were at the entrance to the Village Of Shades.
“Shin you really did it!” Erasa exclaimed in joy as she hugged Shin impulsively.
Shin was surprised for a while and then he began to blush shyly. Erasa realized her mistake and left him.
“Uh-um…sorry about that. I’m just excited” Erasa said nervously.
“Don’t worry about it. Let’s just find your spices and get outta here” Shin said as they walked into the village.
This is the village we were supposed to rescue but then we got captured by the Maelstrom bandits and I was nearly killed” Erasa said sadly.
Shin felt very angry after hearing this but he attempted to suppress his anger. His anger was mostly directed at the Maelstrom bandits.
Soon, they were at Dr Gensai’s base. Erasa knocked on the door three times. I’m coming!” she heard Justin’s voive and in a few seconds, the door was opened.
“Erasa! What a surprise!” Justin exclaimed in joy.
“Hi Justin. Is your granddad at home?” Erasa asked.
“No, he’s not around. He’s with the Maelstrom bandits. They are helping us rebuild the village” Justin said.
“Hmmph! At least they’re finally thinking of others” Shin scoffed.
“It looks like your boyfriend has a thing against the Maelstrom bandits” Justin teased.
“He’s not my boyfriend Justin. We’re just friends” Erasa said.
“You’re damn right I have something against them! They stole my life!” Shin roared angrily.
Erasa stared at Shin in surprise, then she began to get suspicious.
“What do you mean by that Shin?” Erasa asked.
“Nothing” Shin said.
“It can’t mean…”
“I said forget about it!” Shin said angrily and walked away.
“Justin, could you please get these spices for me? I’ll be back for them soon. Right now I’ve got to find out what’s bothering Shin” Erasa said as she took the path Shin had taken.
Meanwhile Shin was running angrily. He didn’t want to recall his past but it was as though unforeseen forces were trying to force him to recall his past and reveal his true identity to Erasa. As he was running, he bumped into a boy as old as himself who was carrying a log of wood and they both fell to the ground. The boy pushed the log of wood off his body.
“Hey! Why don’t you watch where you’re going?!” he yelled.
“I should watch where I’m going? Why don’t you watch where you’re going!” Shin yelled angrily.
“Do you want to fight?!” the boy challenged.
“Ha! I bet you wouldn’t even be a challenge!” Shin mocked.
“That’s enough Two! You don’t need to fight a stranger!” a firm feminine voice commanded.
Shin opened his eyes in shock and turned to face the speaker. When she saw his face, she dropped the things she was carrying in shock and stared at him. Erasa saw them from a distance and walked towards them.
“Zero…is that…you?” the girl asked in shock.
Erasa was close enough to hear her words. At the mention of the name Zero, it was as if a bolt of lightning had passed through her heart.
Shin frowned. He still hadn’t noticed Erasa.
“You’ve probably mistaken me for someone else” Shin said as he walked past One and kept moving.
Two also stared in surprise and then he took a stone and hurled it at Shin but the stone passed right through Shin.
“Hmmph! There is only one person I know of in all the world that can use a technique like that and that’s Zero the Phantom Thief!” Two declared.
“The Zero you knew was only half a phantom but thanks to you, he is now a true phantom. He no longer exists” Shin said as he suddenly began to fade.
“Zero wait!” One called but he was already gone.
Erasa stood away from them. She was dumbfounded and in tears.
Shin reappeared at Dr Gensai’s house. Justin was awaiting anxiously for Erasa with her basket filled with spices.
“Where’s Erasa?” Shin asked.
“She went after you” Justin said.
“I guess I’ll just wait for her” Shin said moodily.
“What’s your name?” Justin asked.
“I’m Shin” Shin said.
“Are you always moody?” Justin asked.
“No, I’m usually a fun guy but lately…I’ve been having a bit of a hard time” Shin said.
“Do you know you resemble Reis?” Justin asked innocently.
“I do? Well I’ve never noticed and no one’s ever told me that before” Shin said with a sheepish grin.
As the two boys kept talking, Justin noticed Erasa approaching.
“Oh Erasa, there you are” he said.
Shin turned to look at Erasa and noticed the tears flowing down her face.
“Erasa, are you crying?” Shin asked.
Erasa shook her head.
“No, I’ve just got something in my eye” she lied.
“Both eyes? C’mon Erasa, tell me what’s wrong?” Shin asked kindly.
“It’s nothing really” Erasa said.
“Here are your spices Erasa” Justin said as he handed the basket to her.
“Thanks Justin. We have to leave now. Tell your granddad I passed by. Thanks again” Erasa said in an attempt to force a smile.
“Justin, why don’t you consider becoming a dragon ranger. I can tell you’ll be a great one” Shin said with a thumbs up.
Justin and Erasa stared at him in surprise.
“Maybe when I’m a little older” Justin said.
“Goodbye” Shin said as he held Erasa’s hand.
His touch made Erasa nervous and confused.
When they reappeared in the Rangers’ Guild, Erasa thanked Shin.
“You don’t need to thank me. It’s my fault that you spilt the spices” Shin said.
Erasa remained silent.
“I’m sorry for being a jerk earlier on. It’s just that I don’t like to talk about my past” he said.
“Shin, if there was something important in your past concerning me…you’d tell me right?” Erasa said with pleading eyes.
Shin sighed and remained silent.
“I thought so” Erasa said sadly.
“Erasa, after delivering your spices, could you wait for me at your house. There’s something important I need to tell you” Shin said.
Erasa nodded with a smile and left. Shin walked on till he reached the turn that led to the hospital and then he continued along that path. Shin walked in and bought the painkillers. Then he headed back to the Ayenhayze residence.
“What took you so long?” I feel like I’ve been ran over by a Kaerran-Bull!” Reis complained.
Shin gave the tablets to Kyla.
“He’s supposed to take two now and two at night” Shin said.
“Get him some water Shin” Kyla ordered.
“Okay, just wait a sec” Shin said as he left for the kitchen.
He was back a moment later with cup of water. Reis drank the water and swallowed the pills, then he drank some more water.
“How do you feel?” Kyla asked.
“Like I’m about to throw up!” Reis exclaimed as he rushed to the bathroom.
In the Senshiiro residence, Erasa told Ethan and Effuien of her suspicions.
“Erasa, I need to ask you a question. What do you really feel for Shin?” Ethan asked.
“I haven’t really thought of it” Erasa said.
“Then what difference does it make whether he’s Zero or not” Effuien said.
“It does make a difference” Erasa said.
“Maybe Shin doesn’t want to tell you the truth because he doesn’t think it’s important. After all, you’re in love with Reis aren’t you?” Ethan said.
“That confuses me as well. I’ve always thought I loved Reis but maybe what I really feel for him is a deep sense of gratitude. I feel different when I’m around Shin. He makes me feel uneasy” Erasa said.
“Really? I heard you really gave him a hard time roughly two years ago” Ethan said curiously.
“I was really stupid. Shin was only being nice to me. I get the feeling that he really likes me” Erasa said.
“And you? Do you like him?” Ethan asked.
“I don’t know. Sometimes, when I’m with him, I feel my heart racing but at other times, I’m just afraid to be near him” Erasa confessed.
“Could that be because you actually feel something special for him?” Effuien asked.
Erasa recalled Shin’s kindness towards her. He was always ready to help her and the last thing he ever tried to do was hurt her feelings. It was then that it dawned on her that it was because Shin respected her feelings for Reis that he didn’t want to tell her the truth.
“I think it’s possible that you’re actually in love with Shin” Effuien said and everyone knew how good Effuien was at reading people’s feelings.
“Do you think so?” Erasa asked nervously.
“I think you’re afraid to show your true feelings for him because he reminds you of Zero and you possibly feel like you’ve betrayed Zero” Effuien said.
“But you won’t know until you talk with him and by talk I mean…really talk” Ethan agreed.
Shin meanwhile lay on his bed feeling miserable.
“I met them today. One and Two. I’m glad they’re fine but…I still can’t forgive them. It’s still too soon” he thought.
Reis was fast asleep.
“And Erasa’s beginning to suspect. If I tell her the truth, I’ll probably win her love, but is a love that is based only on past experiences really love?” Shin wondered.
Meanwhile in the Senshiiro residence, Erasa was staring at the daggers Shin had given her.
“I really wish that Shin Ayenhayze is really you Shin because that would mean that…I never lost you. But it would also mean that I’ve been a fool for not noticing you for this long. It’s been three years since I first met you Shin Ayenhayze. Back then, you always looked so out of place and confused. I actually fell in love with that nervous, out of place Shin Ayenhayze but I couldn’t reveal my feelings because like Effuien said, I felt like I’d be betraying Zero” Erasa thought to herself.
It was almost 3:00pm and Shin had still not arrived. Erasa was beginning to get nervous.
“Did Shin change his mind?” she wondered.
“Maybe he thought about it and decided not to tell me the truth” Erasa said as despair began to fill her heart.
In the Ayenhayze residence, Shin was putting on his ranger uniform. He had made up his mind.
“Regardless of the outcome, this is for the best” he said as he took out Erasa’s ring and placed it in his pocket...then he walked out of the Ayenhayze residence.
Back in the Senshiiro residence, Erasa was sad and in distress. All she could do was stare at Shin’s Twin Daggers and weep.
“He’s not coming” she said and then she realized how hurt she was.
“Why am I so concerned? Am I in love with Shin?” Erasa wondered.
Suddenly, she heard a knock on her bedroom door.
“Come in” she said.
Effuien entered the room.
“He’s here Erasa and he’s looking for you” Effuien said.
“Who’s here?” Erasa asked.
“Who else? Shin Ayenhayze of course” Effuien said.
In a flash, Erasa was out of her room. She slid down the staircase and rushed to the door. She took in a deep breath and opened it. Outside stood Shin in ranger uniform.
“Why are you in Ranger uniform Shin?” she asked.
Shin looked at her carefully.
“You were crying again weren’t you?” he asked.
“No, I was not” Erasa lied.
“Lemme guess. Though you were inside, something still managed to get into both your eyes right?” Shin joked and Erasa burst into laughter.
“Something like that” she said.
“Okay, change into Ranger uniform. I’m waiting for you” Shin said.
Erasa didn’t argue with him. Shin waited patiently for her and soon she came down the stairs in ranger uniform.
“Let’s go” Shin said and the two of them walked away.
“For a moment I thought you were not coming” Erasa said.
“The last thing I’d ever want to do is hurt your feelings” Shin said earnestly.
Erasa felt the truth in his words and she began to realize that she actually loved him more than she had thought.
“Where are we going this time?” Erasa asked.
“Just wait and you will see” Shin said.
“Can’t you at least give me an idea?” Erasa asked curiously.
“It’s a place that is special to Dragon Rangers but it’s particularly special to me. When I first arrived in this guild, I couldn’t sleep anywhere but there. Fortunately, neither Master Jin nor Kyla noticed that I was sleeping outside the house” Shin said with a nostalgic smile.
“And you’re taking me there why?” Erasa asked.
“You’ve actually been there before. Probably a long time ago” Shin said.
“Really?” Erasa asked.
“Well, I want to tell you a story but the only way it will make sense is if you’re there with me” Shin said.
“Can’t you tell me where it is?” Erasa pleaded.
“No, that’s half the fun” Shin said.
“Stingy!” Erasa complained.
Erasa watched him in surprise and smiled. Then she held his hand. Shin turned to look at her but she shyly turned away. Soon they walked past the Rangers’ HQ.
“Shin? Isn’t this place out of bounds?” Erasa asked.
“The place is not restricted by humans. It has placed a barrier around itself that allows only pure-hearted people through” Shin explained.
“Then I don’t think we can enter. Is there a pure-hearted human in this world?” Erasa asked.
“Erasa, we all have our faults. There probably isn’t a faultless human being in existence” Shin said.
“Then what defines a pure hearted person?” Erasa asked.
“Reis would say the most important thing is faith in God. I believe that…but I also believe it is the desire to do what is right regardless of how many times we fall” Shin said.
“Really?” Erasa asked.
Soon, they were at the entrance to a forest.
“We have to go through here” Shin pointed through the forest.
“Shin, it’s almost dark. The Kaiser-wolves might be awake” Erasa said in a frightful voice.
“Don’t be afraid. You trust me don’t you?” Shin asked stretching his hand to Erasa.
Erasa nodded and took his hand once more. Then they walked through the forest. Erasa was scared when she heard the howls and she came close to Shin for protection. As they walked on, they became aware that the forest was becoming darker and darker.
“Shin, it’s getting dark. Let’s turn back before we get lost” Erasa said worriedly.
“Trust in me Erasa” Shin assured.
“I do Shin. I do trust you but I can’t understand why you’re bringing me to such a dark place” Erasa complained.
“It’s because where we are going, no lies can be told. I know there are a lot of things you want to ask me and I want to show you that I am willing to be totally honest with you” Shin said.
“But it’s really dark Shin” Erasa remained worried.
“Do you trust in your heart? Do you believe that I’ll protect you and never let any harm befall you?” Shin questioned Erasa.
“Stop making me feel bad. I already said I trust you” Erasa said.
“Then don’t be afraid. Your trust in me is my light and that light will outshine the darkness!” Shin declared.
Almost immediately after he had said that, the forest became very bright. Erasa stared around in awe.
“It’s suddenly bright but where is the light coming from?” Erasa asked as she tried to find the source of the light.
Shin turned to look at her and smiled. Erasa stared at him in awe for the light was coming from Shin’s eyes and his smile.
“Shin, you’re glowing. The light is coming from you” Erasa said.
“It’s because you trust in me. Besides, it’s not just me, you’re glowing yourself” Shin said.
“I am?” Erasa asked.
“Yeah, you look like an angel” Shin said with a sheepish grin.
Erasa blushed shyly and the light began to turn pink. Shin burst into laughter.
“What’s so funny?!” Erasa yelled angrily.
“Your shyness is affecting the light. See? It’s turning pink” Shin teased.
“Did you bring me here to tease me?!” Erasa said angrily.
“Don’t get so angry. I’m just joking. Fine, I’m sorry Erasa” Shin apologized.
“Don’t look so tense. I’m not really angry. I’m just teasing you” Erasa said.
Shin sighed and a presence escaped his lips as though his soul had left his body.
Erasa began to laugh.
“What’s so funny?” Shin asked.
“You’re so worried I saw your soul escaping your body” Erasa teased.
Shin began to laugh too.
“Can you explain why we can physically see each other’s emotions?” Erasa asked.
“It’s because of today” Shin said.
“I don’t understand” Erasa said.
“Alpha’s light shines through the hearts of the honest. Today is Ayes’ day and Ayes’ is the magnifier of Alpha’s light thus this phenomenon is created when honest people enter this forest. Liars and evil people only see darkness and nightmares” Shin explained.
“Why is that?” Erasa asked.
“It’s actually a manifestation of what’s in their hearts” Shin explained.
“I see” Erasa said.
They walked on talking and laughing. Erasa had totally forgotten all her fears though she hadn’t realized it yet. Soon, they arrived at a cave.
“Shin, don’t tell me…” Erasa said with a joyful smile.
“Yep, we just walked through the Forest Of Awakening and we’re now at the Cave Of Shadows” Shin said with a smile.
“Come on, let’s go in” he motioned to her to come along.
Erasa walked towards him and they entered the Cave. The light was brighter inside the cave than in the forest.
“We’re here Erasa. Are you tired?” Shin asked kindly.
“No, it was fun” Erasa said.
Shin sat down.
“This feels so nostalgic” he said with a joyous smile.
“We came here to bond with our dragon partners but the cave wasn’t as bright as it is now back then” Erasa said as she sat next to Shin
“You know, I was really distressed when I thought you weren’t coming but you’ve shown me something I never thought was possible. Thank you Shin, I really mean it” Erasa said gratefully as she leaned on Shin with her hand on Shin’s.
Shin looked at her hand in surprise and stared at her. He began to blush shyly and the light slowly turned reddish.
“You don’t need to thank me Erasa. I’m sure you’d have eventually figured it out on your own” Shin said modestly.
“I don’t think so. I’m so scared of the Kaiser wolves. I wouldn’t have dared to come here on my own and even if I did, it wouldn’t have been as fun as sharing my feelings with you” Erasa said.
“Your feelings? Erasa, I think you’re a bit confused because I know you love Reis” Shin admitted sadly.
“Reis…I had time to think about my feelings and I realized that what I felt for him was a deep feeling of gratitude but it’s different when I am with you. You helped me overcome my fears. You showed me that its truly possible to share one’s feelings with another person…” Erasa was saying.
“Erasa…it’s not my…”
“Please let me finish Shin. In the few days I’ve opened my heart to you, I’ve realized that whenever you hold my hand, I never want you to let go and whenever you smile, I feel all my sorrows disappear. Shin I want you to know that…I’m in love with you” Erasa confessed.
Shin opened his eyes in surprise and turned away.
“Don’t make fun of me Erasa, it’s not funny” Shin said sadly.
“I’m telling the truth Shin, I love you” Erasa said worriedly.
Shin turned to face her.
“Won’t you say anything?” Erasa asked anxiously.
“Do I really need to say anything? You should know by now that I’ve never stopped loving you” Shin said as he placed his hand in his pocket and withdrew his fist.
He stretched his hand towards Erasa and opened his fist. Erasa gasped in shock. In Shin’s hand was her sapphire ring. The ring she had given to Zero!
“Sh-Shin, how did y-you get that?” she asked in shock.
“You gave it to me in a cave quite like this one. I held on to it and never let go. I survived Erasa. I’m Zero, the same one you named Shin and I’ve held on to that name as well” Shin confessed.
Erasa was in tears.
“Shin?” Erasa recalled as she stared into his eyes deeply. She recalled the time Zero saved her and she fell on top of him staring into his eyes and then she saw the likeness of Zero’s eyes in Shin’s eyes.
“Shin! It is you!” she exclaimed as she hugged him tightly.
“Yes Erasa, it is me. I was saved by Draco and Alpha” Shin said, his own voice trembling.
“I thought I’d lost you but you were always with me!” Erasa cried.
“I wanted to tell you but when you returned to the Guild, you looked so happy I didn’t want to spoil your happiness with painful memories. And when I finally decided to tell you, I discovered that you were in love with Reis” Shin confessed.
“I was a fool to not notice you. All these years and I never even once spoke to you” Erasa said.
“Stop crying crazy girl” Shin joked.
“It’s been five years since you last called me that” Erasa said as she wiped her tears, then she stood up and pulled Shin’s daggers from her boots.
“You kept them with you for this long?” Shin asked with a smile on his face as he stood up.
“Yes, I never forgot that you were the first person to ever save me” Erasa said.
“And I was saved by my strong will to see you again” Shin said and they kissed.
In the Ayenhayze residence, Reis had woken up.
“How do you feel?” Kyla asked.
Reis thought for a while.
“HEY I FEEL GREAT!” he exclaimed as he leapt from the bed.
“CRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCCKKKKKKKKK!!!” Reis’ bones began to crack.
“AAAAIIIIIIIEEEEEEE!!!” he screamed in pain.
“What’s wrong?” Kyla asked.
Reis turned to face her with a regretful look on his face.
“I’m feeling worse than before. When will I get better?! YEOUCH!!!” Reis screamed.
