I watch as you walk away.

I know you'll never love me like I love you.

You can't. You're more robot than human. And I'm….

More human.

I cough and wretch blood, my fingers curling over the hilt of the sword you stuck through me, nailing me to the tree.

"Pl… Pla…. ci…"

I cough more. Everything's fuzzy. My broken body sparks. I don't have enough energy to sob but the tears keep falling.

Placido…

I watch as you walk away.

Please

Just look back

Please…

"Forget about me, Antinomy."

Your voice cuts deeper into my flesh than your sword.

"N-No… Pla… cid…"

I watch as you walk away.

Please don't leave me

Please don't leave me

Please don't leave me!

"Bruno? Bruno!"

Bruno wakes with a start, and he gives a loud sniff. Yusei's concerned face was above his.

"Are you okay? You were crying in your sleep."

Bruno touches his face. It's wet with tears.

"S-Sorry…" he sniffs, "I don't… even remember what I dreamed about."

Yusei gives him a sympathetic smile and pats his back.

"Don't worry about it. As long as you're alright."

Bruno smiles and nods.

"Thanks Yusei."
