Watch the Scene
Everyone else could see how worried I was.
Vayne, help me out here.
Wha? Huh? What?
What are you staring off into space for?
S-sorry. I was just thinking about Jess
She hasnt come today, either. Maybe shes still not feeling well
Mph, so Vayne is old enough to think of women?
Thats not what I meant!
Oh my, theres more to you than I thought.
Oh hoh! Vayne thinks of Jess that way
I said, thats not it!
Well, all jokes aside, have you heard anything about Jess condition?
Im worried too, but she wont tell me anything
I know its not something you should blab about, but can you tell us, too?
Um well I guess Ill never figure it out alone. Will you help me?
Leave it to us!
I told them what she told me, that thanks to an illness when she was younger she doesnt have long to live. I still feel bad about telling them, but I just couldnt handle it alone any more and she sure didnt want to talk about it.
Why would you keep that a secret from us!?
Everyone here is worried about Jess.
Yeah. Were not strangers.
Well, well think of some sort of punishment to give you later.
First, about Jess.
Wha Punish ?
What can we do to save Jess ?
Im sure shes tried various methods to save herself by now.
Thats true, hmm
We could simply put her out of her misery
Want me to do it to you first?
It was just a joke. See? Hahaha.
The biggest problem, though, is that she just doesnt seem to get how sad itll make me er, us if she were to die.
Shes completely apathetic towards herself
Well Its harder when she isnt aware of it herself.
Yeah I dont know how to tell her that
Why hesitate? Its so simple.
Red Soup, Bomb Ice, and a Veggielicious. Bring em and the problems solved.
What do you plan to use that for?
Red for blood, cold body and a smell Just bring them and youll find out.
Youre not thinking of anything weird again, are you ?
You dont have to trust me. But, do you have a better plan?
Er Okay fine
If Id known what Flay was going to do I would never have brought him that stuff.
So What are you going to do with these?
Heh heh heh, oh, that First things, first.
so then say that and then Got it?
Isnt that in bad taste?
It sounds effective
Well, lets try it out.
Good luck, Vayne.
Um What was that conversation about?
Heh heh heh, youll see soon enough. Now, I give you an important mission.
Huh? What am I Wha-h-hey Ahhh!
Im amazed Jess will talk to any of us after this.
Vayne! Hes cold ? But no, why !?
Why why ?
We didnt make it in time
We told him so many times to stop with the dangerous experiments
A good man was lost
Boohoohoo Vaynes in the same situation as me now
No, this isnt I dont want Vayne!
Jess Are you crying?
Because Cause Vayne
Are you sad?
Of course IHuh?
Especially since Flay just cant stop being Flay.
Uhm Sorry Jess.
Nah hahaha! A splendidly carried out plot!
I tried to stop him
Sure it was a drastic measure, but I can see it was quite effective.
So in other words, it was all Flays fault.
Wha, thi, ev Ehhh
Looking quite confused there? I understand how you feel.
But you see, Jess, the feelings you had should make you realize
Vayne, you stupid!
M-my ear Wait, Jess!
Aww! I didnt get to finish my well thought out explanation
I knew it. We went too far this time!
Poor Jess Flay, youre mean.
You cold-blooded brute.
You shouldnt be talking. I mean, you guys were willing to do this, too.
Wh-wh-what should we do? Jess just
Dont just stand there! Hurry up and go after her!
Who else!? Go!
Okay. Jess, wait!
She was up on the roof. I ran up after her, wishing Id had the guts to just bring this up instead of relying on Flays crazy plans.
Um Are you mad?
I know you are Sorry.
I dont care. I dont know you.
I said Im sorry. I really am.
I thought you really died
Im sorry. But, I wanted you to realize.
If youre gone, how I Well, not just me, but how everyone would feel.
When Im gone? But I

So like, I want to say Umm, er, I dont know how to say it. Im sorry.
Hehe Vayne, all youre doing is apologizing.
Oh, am I? Sorry
Youre right Haha.
Still, in spite of Flay she had gotten the message.
I should be the one apologizing to you.
No, its okay. Really
But Im going to make everyone sad. Because Im not going to
Im so stupid. Why was I so slow I thought nothing of it until now.
Well I might not be able to do it right now
But Ill do my best to find a cure for you.
Not just me. I know everyone else will help.
