There it was. The Embryo was within my reach but I hadn't gotten it. Easter has it and there's nothing I can do to get it.
"All we have to do is give it to Gozen," The Director muttered. "But it still might not be ours."
"Why not?" I asked coldly. It's so close. I thought. My key to freedom.
"It'd be better to make a wish now," He continued ignoring me.
"Then Gozen will get mad," I told him. Maybe I can grab it. The Director smiled evilly.
"Not if I make a certain wish," He paused. "A wish that'll allow me to get the Embryo again." I narrowed my eyes.
"What do you mean?" I asked.
"Oh you'll see," He laughed and my blood turned cold. "What if the Guardians were never formed?" Now my blood froze. No. I thought. I'd have never met Amu and then Utau would still be trapped with Easter.
"Don't you dare," I growled.
"There will be no more distractions," The Director continued. "No more Hinamori A-"
"You couldn't do this nyan!" Yoru exclaimed. "You'll ruin everything nyan!"
"Maybe for you," He turned away and I lunged to grab the Embryo, but he avoided me somehow.
"Don't you dare wish that," I said angrily.
"Too bad," The Director said cruelly. "I wish the Guardians were never formed."
"No," I whispered. The Embryo began to shine brightly. The light engulfed everything.
My memories began to fade away; I cringed as they were replaced. The Embryo didn't reverse time but replaced every single moment that happened. It would be like nothing happened.
"I won't forget her!" I cried straining against the Embryo's power. Then my last memory of Amu flashed through my mind.
Amu's dress sparkled in the moonlight. I guess tonight was some sort of dance and she was clearly upset by something.
"Nothing's wrong," She sniffed. I smirked at her.
"Don't lie to me," I told her. She shook her head defiantly.
"I'm not lying," Amu lied again. I walked up to her and stroked her hair.
"Why are you so upset?" I asked again.
"It's nothing," She repeated. But I saw through her act.
"Why are you close to crying?" Amu shook her head again.
"It's just," She paused. "T-Tadase-kun d-doesn't…" She began to cry.
"Calm down," I murmured sitting down next to her. "It doesn't matter."
"Yes it does!" Amu cried. I felt tempted to tell her how much I love her, that I care for her so much.
"I'll take you home," I said instead. She just nodded.
End of Flashback
Why didn't I tell her I love her? I wondered sadly. At least she would've known…My thoughts trailed off as Amu faded away. Amu…
