And with the spiral complete, a strange thing happened… Just as time had sped up when we were on the outskirts, in the center of the spiral it stood still. So the curse was over the same moment that it began, the endless frozen moment that I spent in Shuichi’s arms. And it will be the same moment when it ends again… When the next Kurôzu-cho is built where the ruins of the old once lay. When the eternal spiral awakes once more.
I felt a tremendous distance between me and everything real.
