[Rem: ――STAND UP!!]

The voice crashed upon the disintegrating Subaru, beating him, crushing him.
Merciless, unhesitating, the deafening roar accelerated Natsuki Subaru’s collapse―― as if his heart was suddenly laid bare and clutched by unseen claws.

[Rem: STAND UP!!]

The blue-haired girl screamed at Subaru.
Glaring into his eyes, she shouted. Shouted. And shouted.
All the while, Natsuki Subaru only knelt there, holding a girl’s neck within his grip.

[Rem: STAND UP!!]

She roared again and again.
Repeatedly, relentlessly, mercilessly lashing at Subaru’s heart.

What did he do to deserve this scolding?

It hurt. It was painful. It stung. It was saddening. It was tearing his heart apart.
Never in his life had he had to face so many impossible choices one after another without the slightest preparation. ――But he had already stopped lamenting his predicament.
At least, he’d reached his decision. That should’ve been good enough, shouldn’t it?

[Rem: Stand up!]

His pathetic, obstinate logic and his hollow, cowering heart trembled before this fiery girl as she boldly repeated those chastising words.
He’s made his decision. Shouldn’t he get some credit for that? At least, she should try to see how hard he’s deliberated. Right? Why must she treat him like this?

[Rem: Stand up――!]

She didn’t seem to have any intention of forgiving him for the decision of his shattering heart.

[Rem: Stand up――!]

Must she keep saying that?
Why does this girl have to shout at him?
When he’s already suffering, when he’s already in pain?

[Rem: Stand up……! Stand up! Stand up! Stand up now!]

Who is this girl?
What’s he supposed to remember about this girl?

He had never talked to her. She wasn’t present in any of his memories.
Beyond her appearance, he didn’t know who she is or what she is like.
And he couldn’t find a single clue about what their relationship should be.

But then, what is this heat swelling in his chest?
And what is this fever surging from the depths of his heart?

[Rem: Stand up, Natsuki Subaru! Stand up! ――Rem’s hero!!]

His heart trembled as the tearful voice that existed nowhere within his memories cried out for her hero.
Being hit with those senseless words and her almost laughable tone, why was Subaru’s heart trembling?

The spreading of the cracks accelerated.
Natsuki Subaru was literally shedding away the shell of “Natsuki Subaru”.
But the one resting inside was now subtly different from what it was before.

――Or rather, the true transformation had only just begun.
Heeding the girl’s calls to stand, wrestling his frightened heart, he stood up.

[Rem: If you can stand, then go. Go, and save everything]

What is “everything”? What’s “everything” supposed to be?
Isn’t that way too vague? What does “everything” even mean?

[Rem: Everything is everything. All that there is. Everybody, everyone, and that includes you and your most intimate stranger!]

The hell’s that supposed to mean?
Is something like that even possible? Does this girl seriously think he can do it?
With this useless, inadequate self, he couldn’t even save himself.

Protecting the people he loves, protecting the friends he cherishes, protecting the ones he wants to hold close, protecting them and their memories:
Does she really think that one pathetic Subaru can do all that?

[Rem: You can. Because…]

Because.
Because what?

Answer me. Give me something that will help me be strong.
Please, blue-haired girl, say something that’ll make me――

[Rem: ――Because you’re Rem’s hero, Subaru-kun]

[Subaru: ――――]

Thunk. Something dropped in the depths of his chest.
Something black and grimy was made pure by what was practically this girl’s confession of love. ――No, not practically. It was a confession of love.

And this is just one more reason why he mustn’t relinquish this body to “Natsuki Subaru”.

[Subaru: ――Hha]

At the same time, he gained something else as well.
The black grime, purified by this girl’s words, began to glow and transform.
And the invincible core that Natsuki Subaru had always desired began to pulse.

[Subaru: ――――]

Pulsing. Even after losing everything and being abandoned by everything, that core was nevertheless yearning to hold onto everything without letting a single one slip from his grasp.
This unique symphony of cowardice and “Greed” blossomed into the strength to realize his wish――

――As the free-floating Genes bonded with existence.

{Come, ――Cor Leonis}

Inside Subaru’s body, the wayward seeds of “Greed” began to sprout.
And, when she saw him stand firm once more――

[Rem: ――――]

The blue-haired girl smiled, bestowing him her blessings.

Add yours

  1. So, the authority of Greed is finaly appearing. I was guessing a long while ago Subaru would use it to get past Reid.

    So now the question is, in what manner will the nigh-invincible authority of Greed get crippled, to prevent Subaru from being any worthwile combatant?

  2. So. . with Echidona’s (the witch) help, Subaru getting control of Gene of Sloth on Arc 4. Now with Rem’s help, he could control the the Gene of Greed from Arc 5?
