OK, here we are finally! The last chapter!
Excitement awoke from deep within Len, making him fidget and find it impossible to sit still. He just wanted to finish the song and break the mirror. So he could finally hold the girl he now loved more than anyone else. He realised he was pacing impatiently and stopped, flopping down next to the mirror. He gazed at the girl with eager eyes, meeting her gaze happily.
"We. Have. To. Finish. Singing," he told her. She nodded, beaming. "It's nearly broken," he said, more to himself than to the girl.
"Always, always inside sound.
I hear your faint melody," he sung. He could hear music now, pouring forth through the crack. There were flutes and drums, guitars and violins. Then the sound he wanted to hear the most; the girl's singing was the loudest he had ever heard it.
Having a brainwave, Len jumped to his feet and shouted through the crack, thinking she would be able to hear him. "Hello! My name is Len Kagamine! Can you hear me?" He waited for the reply, glancing at her face. She looked stunned and then, very slowly, a grin crawled across her face. She opened her mouth and he hard it. Her reply.
"My name is Rin Kagamine. Are we going to finish our song?" He started and fell into shock. She exsisted, because she could reply. He then was estactic. He nodded.
"Someday, someday we dreamt for this;
The mirror is broken..." His heart stopped as the last line fell from his lips. Tears were falling from his eyes as he glanced up. Shards of glass were raining down on him like glitter. He got to his feet, and still crying in sheer happiness, he stared in disbelief through the frame. He went to reach out his hand, through the frame but was stopped by a hand on his shoulder.
Excitement awoke from deep within Rin, making her fidget and find it impossible to sit still. She just wanted to finish the song and break the mirror. So she could finally hold the boy she now loved more than anyone else. She realised she was pacing impatiently and stopped, flopping down next to the mirror. She gazed at the boy with eager eyes, meeting his gaze happily.
"We. Have. To. Finish. Singing," the boy mouthed. She nodded in agreement, beaming. She was still in shock that the mirror was nearly broken.
"Itsumono itsumono otono nakai.
Kikioeta kigashita kimi no utakoe," she sung. She could hear music now, pouring forth through the crack. There were flutes and drums, guitars and violins. Then the sound she wanted to hear the most; the boy's singing was the loudest she had ever heard it.
The boy looked stricken by a sudden thought and jumped to his feet. He went by the crack and shouted into it. "Hello! My name is Len Kagamine! Can you hear me?" She was stunned. She was sure she had heard his shouts. So his name was Len? She grinned and replied, aiming her shouts at the crack.
"My name is Rin Kagamine. Are we going to finish our song?" she asked, grinning all the time. He started and looked shocked. So he heard her as well. He had to be real, because he could hear her. She was estactic as he nodded.
"Itsuka wa itsuka wa yume mitakoto;
Kagami ni hibika saitteimashita..." Her heart stopped as the last line fell from her lips. Tears were falling from her eyes as she glanced up. Shards of glass were raining down on her like glitter. She got to her feet, and still crying in sheer happiness, she stared in disbelief through the frame. She was too scared to reach out her hand, but the boy went to do so. She gasped when she saw someone standing behind him and place a shadowed hand on his shoulder.
"Who are you?" Len asked, sniffing and rubbing his streaming eyes to see better. He gazed up at the stranger in wonder. It was tall and wearing a black hooded robe that covered its entire body.
"My name is not important. All that is important right now is your choice..." it spoke, its voice sounded like the rustling of dry leaves. Len was bewildered.
"What's that supposed to mean?" he demanded, feeling a bit angry now. Who was this guy and why was he here?
"You have to choose what world you belong in with her," the reply was very frank and he knew that it was right. They couldn't live on opposite sides anymore longer, they had to be together. But where did they belong? He left the random stranger and went to the mirror. The girl was watching them patiently. It seemed she knew what was happening. 'She can hear me clearly now,' he realised with a throb.
"I can't believe we are almost together... But, Rin... It's right... We have to be together here or there..." he said, feeling very surreal. She nodded and seemed to be thinking.
"If you live here, my father wouldn't be happy I found someone myself..." she replied, trying to explain her suituation. "But my brothers and sisters would miss me..."
Len thought about his family. His father wouldn't care he had gone missing and Sarah would understand if he left her a message. He always wanted a large family...
"What if your father likes me...?" he questioned her. "I want to live with you."
At his words the mirror changed shape. A green door now stood where the mirror had just been. Glancing over his shoulder, he saw that the stranger had left. He gulped and grabbed the doorknob. Turning it, he got rid of any regret he had. He opened the door and stepped through it, coming to the clearing again. He was grabbed around the waist and he smelt a sweet smell as he fell backwards. Laughing, they hugged each other tightly and kissed. After five years of longing and waiting, they were finally together. And the Watcher was finally put to rest.
