<<Volume III: Epilogue



Prologue: Amidst a Sea of Red・B
-Blooming Prairie・B-


A song was echoing.

The world was red.

Red flowers in spectacular bloom filled every patch of earth as far as the eye could see.

Overhead, the brilliant sky stretched on without a cloud to be seen.


The field seemed to be deserted.

Yet the song flowed across the world of red and blue.

It was slow at times, fast at others, but always soft.

With notes of both cheer and grief, it continued.


The song ended on a beautiful high note.

“Encore!”

From somewhere on the field came a voice.

“Give me two or three more. If not…”

The voice trailed off. The voice that had been singing finally spoke.

“If not?”

“Then stand me up.”

The first voice replied.

“Hah hah hah! All right. Then here’s one more—”


A song filled the red fields once again.

And when the song ended, the first voice spoke again.

“What’re you going to do now?”

The other voice replied,

“The same as usual. Let’s go somewhere.”

“Yeah. Let’s.”

The first voice cheerfully agreed.

Then it said,


“Could you stand me back up now, Kino?”
