Kyo draws a line in the water with a stick. The line disappears instantly. No matter how many times he does it, the line in the water will keep disappearing. The Dark God sees this and says, "What are you doing?"
Kyo doesn't raise his head or look at him. "I am drawing a line. It always disappears."
The Dark God becomes quiet. He has never seen his other-self interacting with him like this. He wonders how simple this part of him is.
"I keep trying to grow up." He hears him say. "I want to understand her, but I always hit a wall. The name that she gave me is binding me to my current state. I wonder if I will no longer be innocent if I understand her better."
The Dark God shares his memories. Though the memories, he has seen how she talks to Kyo. He is an adult, but he doesn't know either why she is upset.
Was she upset for him? After hearing about his past, was she crying for him? Was it something else? If he asks her, she won't tell him.
Kyo stops drawing lines in the water and walks away from the Dark God. The Dark God follows him. They see the back of the woman dressed in white. She is sitting at the end of the cliff and humming a strange tune.
"Amara?" The Dark God calls her name. She stops humming and turns around. It's not Amara. She holds out her hand. Kyo runs to her and takes that hand. The Dark God hears her laugh. She points at a flying house.
"See." She leans on Kyo. "That is our house. We will run away from this place. We will go to a world where we will find happiness together."
The house flies to the edge of the cliff. Kresi climbs up the stairs. She looks back. Kyo is gone. The Dark God finds himself standing where Kyo was standing a moment ago. She smiles at him warmly. He takes a step, but the house moves away. He realizes that he can't move anymore. She opens the door and walks inside. The house flies away from him. He can only watch.
He yells at his harbinger, "Come back."
He hears crying sounds behind him. Kyo is looking at the flying house. "Stop her before it is too late. I don't want the world where she doesn't exist."
In the garden, the Dark God opens his eyes. Kresi is not beside him. A foreboding feeling grips his chest. He looks around and realizes that she is somewhere too far away. He hears Mogrok's distressed screams.
"Master, where did you go?"
The woman is too weak to get up. There is barely any flesh on her body. Her hair is completely white. The previous Renasir is barely hanging by a thread. In the last 3 years, she has lost nearly all of her powers to the new renasir. She is still alive, waiting for the new renasir to come and take the last heritance from her.
She lived for more than 2000 years. In her long life, she had to kill countless innocent ones who were corrupted by ehr or born as the cursed children. Somewhere in her long life, she wished to die. She waited and waited and waited for the new renasir. When the next renasir didn't appear, she made a decision and sought the dragon god. She bought the forbidden spell. She killed the harbinger and put the dark core in that forbidden body. She hoped that the soul would be chosen as the renasir.
She wanted to finish it. The long tragedy. The cursed children. The unstable world. The death of innocent harbingers. She wanted to end it for once and all.
But, the soul failed to be chosen as the next renasir. When she realized what she had done, she wanted to kill the child. She wanted to erase her existence. She gave her the name. Kresira. The daughter she wanted to erase.
She couldn't erase her. She left her on the street of the beggar city after stabbing her heart. She knew that the child would hate her. She wanted that child's hate. The child was the harbinger. She was the renasir. They were each other's tragedy.
After years, she found out that the same child was chosen as the next renasir.
That child. She must hate her. Is that why that child doesn't come to her to leave her to get tormented between death and life?
Hours pass. She can see the rising sun through the window. She hears a noise. Her vision is already blurry. She senses the girl. Her death. "You are here."
"Sorry for coming uninvited." Kresi comes closer to the dying woman. The Mirins hasn't noticed that she is here. The Dragon God is good with stealth. "I have come to take the inheritance."
"You... that child... " Mayaeira Mirin realizes that the child. Her child. Kresira Mirin. The daughter she created is not the same. "You are not the same soul."
"She died and I replaced her in this body." Kresi doesn't feel any pity for the woman. "Let's finish this. I don't have much time."
Mayaeira shows a tired smile and raises her hand. Kresi takes that bony hand. There is silence. The golden orbs float out of the woman's body and drift into the girl's body. Mayaeira feels her life force weakening. The final piece of the puzzle is transferred to Kresi's body. After 2 thousand years, the woman finds peace in her death.
The dragon god emerges out of the shadows. "He is awake and trying to open the gate to the higher realm. It won't be long before he breaks the gate and comes here."
Kresi places a letter on the table. "There are a few things left."
'You are more powerful now.' I hear it giggle. 'You already know about the future when you become the renasir. I know that you will never hurt the dark god. You will slowly succumb to me.'
I don't have the time to talk to a frantic consciousness in my head. Like the heart of the dark god, she is also trapped in my body. She has been using Amara's memories and feelings to manipulate me. She also tries to lure me with power and the chance to rule the world alone. If I hadn't heard of Deia's visions, I might have given it some considerations.
'I can give you anything that you want. Kyo will remain as Kyo. The Dark God will disappear. Just Give in to me. You like magic. You want more power. Isn't that why you became a full-fledged Renasir?'
She's quite loud in my head. I am getting a headache.
The gate to the realm where the 11 gods are asleep is made of white stone. There are countless runes.
'Yes, you should free them. Then, give into me. I will erase all the gods.'
I put my hands on the gate and inject the ehr of the renasir. With a loud snapping sound, all the runes are torn apart. I am the key to this door.
"It's done." I look at the dragon god behind me. "The 11 gods will wake up now."
"He is almost here." The dragon god looks up at the sky. "Do you want to see him?"
"No, I have already said my goodbyes." The gate is opening. The sunlight is pouring into the realm. I can sense the Dark God arriving. I might be a coward. I don't want to leave a bad memory for Kyo. I don't want him to see me disappear. I am selfish like that. I am making this last decision on his behalf. I am leaving my Kyo. my dark god. But, I am not sad. The dragon god is here. Mogrok is here. I hope that he can forgive me for doing this.
I close my eyes and say the word. The word that the previous renasir hid in the name of this body. The meaning of the rune that I was taught a long time ago.
