He touches her clothes with shaking hands. "What did you do to her?"
"She came to me last night." The dragon god looks down at him. The Renasir. The Harbinger. The girl has disappeared along with the consciousness. The dark core is lying on the floor. This scene reminds him of what happened thousands of years ago. One woman nearly destroyed the world and left the broken god. Another woman saved the world and left the same god broken with sorrow. "She told me to give you this message."
The Dark looks up with grief in his eyes.
"I wanted to save the world where I met Kyo for my selfish reasons." The dragon god utters the words mournfully. "This world where I met the man I loved. There are so many memories. Kyo is a part of you. Your innocence. Your beautiful part. Kyo and you are one being. I have also loved you. All of you. The God who nearly killed me, but didn't kill me in the end. The boy who taught me how to love. The fool who gave away his heart to the woman he loved. The boy who wanted me to become the Renasir to save my life. It took me so long to realize that I have been in love with all sides of you. I wanted to save this world where you exist. I am only returning what belongs to you."
The dark god makes no movement to take the core. He is afraid of feeling the pain that will come. The boy inside him is breaking. The dragon god puts the dark core in his hand. "Take it. Don't waste her sacrifice."
The Dark God absorbs the core. He finds himself standing in front of Kyo. Kyo laughs at him mockingly. "You are afraid to know what I feel. You said that you pity her, but you knew that you loved her. After thousands of years, she freed you from your hell. She gave the warmth you needed. Her entire life revolved around you. She saved you from your pain. Because a woman broke your trust once, you didn't want to admit that she loved you. You closed the door, but I became the window."
Kyo comes closer. "When you and I become one, you will feel the love that I felt and you will feel the pain that I feel. It's too late now. She's already gone. You couldn't even tell her that you loved her too. This name that she gave you once...it will be gone too. There will be nothing left of her."
The core unites them together. The name disappears as they merge. The Dark God feels it all. All the memories. Emotions. Pain. He begins to understand the meaning of her words. The look in her eyes. The goodbye that she said last night. His heart feels like it ripping apart.
A peal of soft laughter. He hears her fleeting voice in the corner of his heart before it is gone forever.
'Never forget. The woman who loved you more than her existence... her name is Ari. Takayama Ari.'
The 11 gods wake up. They find the dark god and the dragon god. The sinister consciousness from the dark ehr is gone. The cursed sea is no longer cursed. It starts to dissipate into the world. The broken realms begin to join together. There is a lot of work and little time to ask questions. The 13 gods work together in harmony again. The world is fixed. It cannot become the old world. It cannot remain broken either. It becomes something new. Something better.
Standing on the same spot where he met the renasir for the first time, the chosen one rereads the letter that she left him. The letter was delivered to him by the mirins after the gods woke up and the world began to change.
The harbinger you are looking for died the same night your mother died. That night, the harbinger died and I replaced her soul in her body.
You have been waiting for revenge for more than 3 years. You were driven by hate and anger. I have heard of the cruel things that the previous harbinger did. You have also killed and tortured countless innocent cursed children.
Do you think that your mother was right in killing the cursed children?
That day, you could have made me your slave using that love potion. I don't hate you. You have the conscience. You stopped at the last moment. You know the difference between the right and the wrong. That's why I want you to stop. The world will change now. You no longer have to carry the weight of being the chosen one. The gods will take responsibility. Help the gods in the new world. You will find many paths to change the world. I hope that you take the right one.
Wishing you happiness,
The girl you fell in love at first sight. ]
Aren smiles dismally when he finished reading the letter. The girl he fell in love at first sight. She is a cruel one. She didn't even give him the chance to make her love him back.
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
