Just so you know, I relaize that this fic is rather disjointed. This was intentional. All spaces you see were put in by myself.
What's that noise?
Was there an accident?
I hope whoever it is is okay.
But why does it hurt so bad?
Oh… right… that car cut me off. I must have hit him. I hope he's okay.
He is not okay
I am not okay.
No, don't tell yourself that, Yukari. That's just your mind panicking. It's never as bad as it looks, never as bad as it feels.
But it feels so bad.
I can't be seeing this. My chest can't just grow a gearshift lever. I'm probably hallucinating.
I can't die. Not like this. My evoker is in my bag. It's funny… I never got around to getting rid of that thing.
If I could just reach it
NO NO NO IT HURTS IT HURTS SO MUCH
I… I'll wait. I'll get it later. It's too much trouble right now.
I can't die yet.
Death. That was Ryoji, wasn't it?
Why am I thinking of him right now? I haven't thought of Ryoji in ages. How could I forget him? He was so friendly.
In a way, he was like a brother… to him
I loved that scarf of his. I don't know why. I happened to touch it once, back during the class trip.
Where was that? I can't remember.
I was hanging my cardigan up next to his scarf, and I happened to brush it. It was so soft, just hanging there.
The Hanged Man. Chidori.
I thought that was such a beautiful name. Chidori.
She's with Junpei right now. Where are they?
They moved to Osaka, didn't they?
I'm glad she could come back. Junpei was so torn to pieces
Like You Like You Are Right Now
Calm down, Yukari. You've heard all those stories. It's never as bad as it looks. Try to be strong, Yukari
Strength, that was Koro-chan. He was such a good dog
I made that food for him once. The poor guy was sick all evening. I felt
silly, apologizing to a dog.
It's funny. I thought our dorm had a no pets rule. Did Mitsuru pull some strings? Yes, I think she did, I remember. When was that? I think it was around the time we fought the Fortune Shadow.
Why is there so much I can remember, and so much I can't? Did I hit my head?
Why are all these memories coming to me now? I haven't felt like this since that day, when I remembered everything
right before he
No no don't say it don't say that word
That wasn't your fault, Yukari, you know that.
But it wasn't fair.
Where was the Fairness?
Where was the Justice in it all?
The Justice Arcana. Ken-kun. I loved that kid. I think we all did.
He was like a little brother to all of us.
But what about Shinjiro?
Yeah. He tried to kill him.
He tried to kill Shinji. But Shinji saved him from Takaya. He saved the boy that was plotting to kill him.
That was Shinji for you. Shinji was cool. Everything about him was cool. Especially that coat. I always loved that coat.
The Hierophant Arcana. That was Shinji.
What the hell is a Hierophant anyway? I'll ask Aigis next time I see her
If there is a next time
I don't understand
Why does it hurt so much?
I don't understand
Where's the Ambulance
Shouldn't one be here by now?
That poor man in the other car
I don't hurt as much now. It still hurts, but not as much
Why is that?
Maybe I can reach my Evoker now
Good, I can move more now.
I can barely touch it
I can just touch it
OH IT HURTS IT HURTS SO FUCKING MUCH MINATO HELP ME PLEASE
Did I pass out?
Why am I crying?
It's not as bad as it looks
Minato, where are you
Don't you still love me
Oh , yeah
We found him. On the roof, in Aigis' lap.
Aigis, you wonderful miracle.
You were like Pinocchio
You got a soul
Wow. Is that sappy, or what.
It sounds like the kind of thing Fuuka would say.
Oh, Fuuka. You were one of my best friends, back then.
I wish I could see you, right now.
Is this what you hear about sometimes? Is my life flashing before me?
Where is Fuuka
She married Akihiko three years ago.
Akihiko, with his silver hair, and that bandage
I think he forgot that he had that bandage
Just left it on for a whole year.
Funny, him marrying Fuuka.
I always figured he'd wind up with Mitsuru
How could I forget about you?
It's funny. If it weren't for your family, I would have never made so many
Did you ride horses? You always wore those big black boots
like a jockey
It's the ambulance. They're here. Good. They can help that other man.
They won't have to worry about me. It's not as bad as it looks.
It hurts less now. That illusion of the gearshift in my chest is still there, though
I didn't know hallucinations could last this long
Or is this denial
Junpei was in near-constant denial
He thought he was a huge hit with the ladies
And he always wore that damn hat.
I never saw him with it off.
He was a nice boy though
So was He.
I miss you, so much.
I've missed you for so long.
Am I crying again?
I visit your grave, every year
I always leave a piece
Remember, when I gave you that piece of cake?
It was the best cake you'd ever had
That's what you told me
Why did you leave me behind?
I had a dream about you once, you know
I was standing in white space
I was nude. There's probably some kind of Freudian Implication behind that.
There was this bright light shining on me
And you know what?
You were there, Minato.
You were so beautiful
Is that were you went when you died?
Does everyone go there?
I never wanted to leave
You stood there and just motioned with your head
And you said three words
I'll never forget them
"Well? You coming?"
And I wanted to come with you
I wanted to follow you, follow you to the ends of the earth
I Love You, so much, Minato.
The pain has been lessening for a while now
There's no pain at all, now
I feel so light
It feels so wonderful
I've hurt for so long, but I've never felt happier
Just hold on, Minato
"Well? You coming?"
