Summary: Yukito/Misuzu. The beginning and the end of their last incarnation.

He stroked her faded hair. "No," he said. "For you, I don't think it's strange at all."
Her eyes were bright and blue, still the same. "When you go," she said quietly. "Take me with you."
He kissed her forehead. "I won't leave you," he whispered.
