Warnings: that ubiquitous 2nd person thing again looming on the horizon
Suzuha was right, and you didn’t believe her. This doesn’t bring any comfort; she’s not here to stop SERN’s plans. Mayuri will die, and there is nothing you can do to stop it. You can’t even rebel or escape. FB—the leader, here, of SERN’s Rounders—has made sure of that.
All it brings is dread. Pain, grief, all the emotions that you had been holding inside, all pour out at once.
She watches you dispassionately; she, the one whom you had called assistant, she, with whom you had confided every thought and fear, she, who was far more than the emotionless robot you had thought at first.
She resembles that emotionless robot now. Beautiful. She’s a woman now, beauty fully realized, confident and in control, and completely cold. She is seeing suffering, pulled the trigger and watched a friend die, and she doesn’t even care.
“I wanted you to know that this is pointless,” she explains after a pause. “I know every move you make. I’ve traveled in time, too, Okabe. You’re a lab rat in a maze, running through again and again, but there’s no cheese.”
You’d called yourself a mad scientist, but now, watching her, you know you had been a mere child, acting at the real thing. In the presence of a master all you feel is awe and dread.
Moeka’s eyes are wide, but she follows every order without question, an aura of worship in her eyes.
Kurisu runs into the path of Moeka’s gun, but it doesn’t stop the gun the future Kurisu is holding. “You’ve made a mistake. If anything happens to me…”
You all understand what she’s talking about. The Kurisu from SERN frowns deeper and actually looks concerned, and for good reason. If anything happens to the Christina of the past…it’s not certain that convergence will allow her to be killed, but if she gets hurt, that might stick.
That’s his assistant. Using her brain to break SERN’S plans.
She’d actually listened to him about the Future Gadgets. That’s Moad Snake he just employed. “Go, Okabe!”
“Get him!” FB yells, ice thawing in the face of her fury, but you run to the Time Leap Machine, just as before.
