You walked slowly down the empty streets of Paris in the morning. Everything seemed cold and bleak – lonely. You were on a mission to kill a powerful demon in the area.
You pretended not to notice the dark shadow lurking a little behind you, following you all around. You knew the real reason behind it already. You hadn't been leaving your room at all ever since your return from Nibelheim two months ago. Yet when you did, you suddenly insisted on going on a mission. Ayame was worried.
You never told anyone, but you have always imagined that this day would arrive. The day when everyone you love would leave your side. The day when you have no one to depend on or protect anymore.
When you spotted the enemy, you took out a hairband from the inner pocket of your coat and tied your hair in a ponytail in remembrance of your fiancee and sister – which made you wonder if they can still see it.
Then, you pulled Shishioh out and charged towards the demon. With the first slash you chopped off its arm. The second cut severed one of its legs. But neither of the injuries were fatal. It wasn't enough to kill the monster yet. All it did was just to slow it down.
Furious, the demon threw its head back and bellowed loudly, the sound ringing repeatedly in your eardrums. You cringed and that created an opening. The demon grabbed you by your head and easily lifted you off the ground. Surprisingly, it didn't hurt much at all and you could still keep your cool.
Without wavering your gaze, you pulled out a gun. The gun Noriyuki used, and blasted two shots into the demon's mouth.
Shrieking, the demon exploded from inside out and disappeared from view.
"You did a good job," Ayame praised. "It was splendid, just like how you always complete your missions."
Just like how the three of you did, yourself, Kagura and Noriyuki.
Instead of feeling proud like how you would have in the past, your heart ached a little - and you trudged all the way back from the airport to your apartment. You were still living in the same place, even though Ayame asked you to move over to the new building. There was an open space, and you have already proved that you could control the Seshouseki properly without losing your mind.
But you refused the offer. You did not want to leave this place which contained so much of your precious memories with Kagura and Noriyuki. They didn't have graves - the room was the lone thing that they left you with. Proof that they really existed.
Alone, walking through the deep snow, you felt like crying but you held back. There was no need to.
You kicked open the door to your room and hung your coat up on the rack. Sighing, you removed your boots and brushed the snow out of your hair, jumping straight onto your bed.
This was our home now, and it always felt good to be home.
Subconsciously, you glanced towards your right – at the empty bed that was still occupied up till two months ago. You got to your feet slowly and moved over to the other side of the room, deciding to sleep in Kagura's bed instead.
"Thank you," you whispered while hugging Kagura's pillow tightly to your chest. After your father died, you had been the one taking care of Kagura alone, then there was Noriyuki helping out in the house whenever he drops by.
But they are gone now, you told yourself sternly. Don't think about a girl and a man that isn't even here anymore.
You can't help it. You can't help but remember about them. They were another reason for you to obliterate Shinra Corporation. Kagura was like a younger sister to you and Noriyuki was the only man you ever loved.
They were your family.
"What would you have me do right now, mother?"
The first thing I did after I destroyed your intended targets in Malaysia was returning home and knelt down in front of your slumbering presence; Awaiting orders as usual.
I am your blade, I am your knight and I am your adopted child; Isayama Kagura, product of the forced polymerization of your Kagura and Byakuei.
"Come sleep with me tonight, kid." you commanded.
"Not as a knight, not as a monster, but as a child." You turn over to me, looking at me with sad, wishful eyes. "As my daughter."
You then sat up to embrace me suddenly, whispering something in my ear that I wished to hear all this time.
"You are the only family I have left..."
"Alright mother," I reply into your ear as my eyes stare blankly into the distance. "I promised Tsuchimiya Kagura that I would keep you happy after all."
You then bury your face onto my shoulders and weep with thankfulness. I look over at the mirror, at my reflection; Tsuchimiya Kagura's face.
She nods with a smile.
"I would be leaving Yomi's happiness in your hands from now on."
