Part 56: The Singer Angel: Episode 3 Cont.d

And now the rest of our story.

You idiot! Why didn't you tell me sooner!?
Now it's my fault!?
Okay, okay... I'm sorry.
You better be!
It's just, nobody can resist you.
I have a favor to ask you...
I want you to call me by my first name.
Are you serious?
Yes, so call me.
Le, Leila...
Hahaha! You sound so funny! Are you really nervous?
Shut up! Leave me alone...
I'm sorry.
Can I call you Lyner?
Y, yes. I'll allow it.
...You sound like an old man or something.

I'll go home to change. I'll see you at the Park Overlooking the Sea!

Really? I'm glad you think so.
I haven't been to a summer festival since I was little...
Really? This is the first time I've ever been to a festival like this.
Let's go see the fireworks. We should get there before it gets too crowded.

Yeah, it'll make a mushroom shape in the sky.
Ohh! Mushroom mushroom!
The next one is Saturn.
Really? How do they make it do that?
I guess it takes a skilled craftsman.
So, this is the first time you ever saw fireworks?
...Yes. I'm glad I got to watch the fireworks with you. I'll remember this moment forever.
Lyner, there's one thing I need to tell you.

I'm a programmed life form. I'm a virus...
I'm a virus, just like the ones we hate and destroy.
I'm sorry to tell you this. I know it's a shock.
But, I couldn't tell you before. I thought you'd leave me if I told you...
I wanted to be with you forever, Lyner. But, I realized how selfish I was being.
You want to date a normal girl and do normal things. You want to laugh and cry with her. And, sometimes even argue with her.
No! I don't want to hear it.
If you don't think you can stand to be with me anymore...
Just tell me when we say goodbye tonight. Then, I won't ever bother you again.
Please, spend at least one more day with me. I want to be completely happy, if only for a day...
Yes... of course.
...Thank you.
Let's go to those small shops over there!
Small shops?
Yes. I've never seen them before.
Alright. Let's check them out.

It's called cotton candy. It's very sweet and delicious.
Oh! I wanna try it! Can I? Can I?
It looks good! Ooh, it's sweet!
I haven't had any since I was little... but, I still think it tastes good. I like the way it melts in your mouth.
Hey, Lyner! It's dipping for goldfish!
Hello! Do you wanna try it?
Oh, Lyner! Can I try it?
Sure. You've never gone dipping for goldfish, either?
Oh yeah, you've never been to a festival before. Why don't you give it a try?
It looks so easy. I just need to catch a goldfish, right? Hahaha!
...Huh? It made a hole... Hey, this one's broken!

No, no. This game is about how many goldfish you can catch with this super thin paper...
Oh... why didn't you tell me before? That changes everything!
Let me try it again.
Sorry. It broke again.
Okay, one more try!
Leila, you tried it 28 times already and you haven't caught any fish yet...
I know, I know. Shut up, Lyner!
Brrr! It's cold and I'm soaking wet...
Are you okay?
I feel sorry for you, so have one on me.
I've never seen anyone as bad as you before. Your hand-eye coordination is awful.
You don't have to tell me that. I know that my reflexes are slow.
It was fun! But, I wish I did better.
You can practice. We do have time for that right now, right?
...Yes. I've only lived in this world for a year. I still have a lot to learn...
I had fun! A lot happened, and I'll never forget this day!
It's getting late. We should go back home.
Yeah, you're right.

I knew it all along. I knew it, and I stayed with you.
What!? How!?
Misha told me when you were captured. Misha told me everything.
My feelings haven't changed at all. I want to be with you forever.
You have to think hard about it! It's not that simple!
I did think hard about it.
It's not just one day. Forever is a long time. Are you sure you can handle it?
Why do you say that?
I don't know anything about this world.
I'm programmed with basic common sense, but I didn't know anything about festivals.
...So, you might not have fun with me...

You'll get to experience more things. It'll be really exciting for you.
You'll discover new things and will always feel excited. I envy you a little. In some ways, you're the luckiest girl in the world.
And, I'm lucky too.
You're lying! I don't know anything. I can't do anything for you.
That's not true.
Leila, you're new to this world. Everything about it makes you happier than I could ever get.
My joy comes from seeing you laugh, holding hands with you, and the joy you get when you discover new things.
I'm a lucky guy because I get to watch you enjoying your life to the fullest.
I want to show you what I like, my favorite places, and stuff like that...
I want to plan my life with you by my side. I want to see you being happy everyday.
And, I want to make you happy.
You're an idiot. You're the biggest idiot ever.

If you choose to stay with me, I can never leave you.
I'm planning to stay with you for the rest of my life.
Lyner, are you...
Are you sure about this? Am I good enough for you? I'm not even a human.
I know that.
I don't even know how long I can live.
I don't care.
I may even turn back into an evil virus...
If that happens, I'll go back and save you again and again...
As long as you need me, I'll always be there for you.
So, let's be happy together...
Thank you. It's time to go live our happy lives...

...What happened?
I think that was the end of that episode.
That was the only one that felt like a full episode so far.
The next episode will be the end of the series.
The end...?
Next time, we'll continue where we left off.
I linked the data for ELMA-DS.
You can now use ELMA-DS as Red Magic.

ELMA-DS is a strong elemental attack for Shurelia. It's pretty cool because ELMA-DS's attack animations are pretty flashy.

Is this really the end? Will Lyner and Leila find a happy ending, or will Team Mir spoil everything? Find out next time on Shurelia, The Singer Angel!
