Alice was running as fast as she could. She couldn't afford to stop for a breath, even if her lungs felt like they were about to burst. She needed to get to Teto, before it was too late. She tripped as she continued runing, but moved her hand in front of her to break her fall, keeping her from falling to the ground all the way, and imiediatly continued to run. She was now climbing the final flight of stairs of the unfinished skyscraper. She saw Teto glance up at her, with a scared expression. Alice stood just for a moment to catch her breath, then ran over to the chimeria, and untied her. She grabbed her arm and pulled her away from the black hole. Alice was about to ask if she was ok, but then Teto shouted in an alarmed voice, "Alice, K-Kaito's behind you!!!" Alice blinked twice before she was able to acknowledge what Teto said. She looked out of the corner of her eye at Kaito. "I know, I figured he'd follow me. Teto, listen to this saying very carefully. The blood keeps flowing until the blood stops." Teto raised an eyebrow. "Until the blood stops, it'll never stop flowing?!" She seemed beyond confused, but now wasn't the time to explain things. "You know what you have to let me do. It has to happen. This is the only way I can get Lily destroyed and Kaito back to the way he used to be. I once went to a certain temple, and they said I had a gift. Yes, I've never told you this, but I'm a slayer. And every slayer for each generation has the same gift. And that gift is death. Please understand what I have to do." Teto couldn't beleive what she was hearing. Tears started to form in the chimeria's eyes. "Alice... no." "Teto, I have to." "NO!!" Alice lowered her eyebrows, she looked frustrated. She grabbed Teto by the shoulders, and squeezed hard, hard enough that it started to hurt Teto a little. "Listen, run back to Shanna and help her. She's probably fighting Lily right now. Soon, everything will stop. Lily will be destroyed and Kaito will be back to normal. Tell her that. Now go!" She let go of Teto, and Teto quickly wiped away her tears on her detached sleeve. "Fine, but please don't die!!!" Teto secretly menuvored around Kaito before running back towards Shanna's castle. Kaito actually saw her, but payed no mind to her. He smirked and walked over to Alice. "So, here you are. You saved you're friend, little one." Alice ignored him and grabbed his shoulders tightly to the point where his arms were pinned to his side. She ignored the gun in his hand, that he was trying to move toward her stomach. "Kaito, listen to me. There's not much time, so listen. I know this isn't how you want to be, and I know what I'm going to do won't do any better, but it'll return you back to the way you were. You'll remember how much fun we had together. How many times we made each other laugh. The first time you kissed me. You'll remember it all. You'll even remember me telling you this, but Kaito, please, once I do what I have to, tell Shanna. Tell her exactly what I did in order to save you and everyone in this planet because if I don't jump into that thing, it'll just get bigger until this entire world is gone." Kaito grunted and lowered his eyebrows, he looked angry. Without saying a word, he lifted up his pistol, and pushed it hard against Alice's stomach. Unexpectadly, before he pulled the trigger, Alice leaned up and kissed him for a few seconds. She pulled away and looked at him seriously "Please, understand why I did this." Kaito gritted his teeth, and fired the gun. Alice was shot in the stomach and fell to her knees imiediatly. She groaned, but looked back at the black hole. She couldn't let this stop her, not now! She weakly got up, and limped run as fast as she could. Kaito fired the gun again, but just barley missed her head. Alice tried to run faster, she ran towards the end of the metal platform that her and Kaito were standing on and then jumped into the black whole. Just then, Kaito came to his senses, and dropped the gun. "ALICE DON'T!!!" He screamed, but it was too late. She fell through the black hole, and it turned out not to be an ordinary one, it had a diffrent affect on slayers. All Kaito saw was blood flying out of the hole, he felt like he was gonna puke. "No...." Tears formed in the vocaloid's eyes. "Alice....." He slowly climbed down the unfinished skyscraper, and found Alice's body lieing on the ground, in a pool of blood. That was indeed not a normal black hole. Kaito looked around, to see that the black hole was no more. He walked over to Alice, and murmured her name once more. "Alice...."
At this very moment, Shanna was still fighting with Lily, Hanyuu inside her still. "Ha,not bad Lily, I see you still have your skills...huh?" Lily made a ear shattering screech, and feel to her knees, she tryed to get up, but could only go to a kneel, she was in more pain than she was a few secounds ago. Shanna was a little confused but ignored it as she gave her usual cocky smirk. "Well, well, looks like your time is up." Shanna walked over to her. The fairy's eyes looked cold and harsh, unlike how they usually are, all cheerful and careing. Lily tried to stand up, but imiediatly fell back down to her knees. She grunted. Shanna clutched her signature weapon, the Sword of Roses in her hand, before speaking once more. "I can't let you live any longer. Good bye." Shanna raised the katana up, and Lily gasped and widened her eyes. She looked up, and the last thing she saw was the sword coming towards her, and the color red. Shanna swung the sword down onto Lily's neck, decapitating her. Lily's head fell off, and rolled to the side of Shanna's left foot, her expression of horror frozen on her face. Blood poured out of the corpse as it collapsed onto the floor, this sight sickened the fairy. "Not bad Shanna, I never thought that you would do such a gruesome act." Hanyuu said, while still inside Shanna. "Neither have I...Alice must of done something...something tragic...to weaken Lily." Shanna looked skeptical, but for some reason felt no worry at all. Teto then ran into the room, with a worried expression and tears in her eyes. She ignored Lily's corpse, and choaked as she said her dear friend's name, "Shanna..." It pained Shanna to see Teto like this, but she decided to get right to the point. "Teto? Whats wrong?" She kicked Lily's head out of the way as she moved a little closer towards Teto. "Wheres Alice?" "She... she's at the unfinished sky-scraper. Kaito followed her. She, she said she was going to do something to-" She stopped, and turned to see Kaito behind her, holding Alice. "ALICE!!!! Oh god, please say she's not dead!!!" Kaito lowered his head so the young girls wouldn't see him crying. "She..... she jumped into that black hole, Teto....." This sent Teto straight into a panic. "WHAT?!?!? Oh god, we... we need to get her to a hospital FAST!!!!" "It.... it won't do any good....... I already checked her pulse. Alice is......" He trailed off as one of his tears fell onto Alice's face. Shanna was breathless. Alice couldn't really be dead, could she? "....Dead.....?" Was all she managed as she let Hanyuu come out of her body. Shanna glowed lime green, and so did the figure of Hanyuu next to her, the glow disappeared and now Hanyuu was once again, outside of Shanna. "Tell me you ain't seriouse!!" Hanyuu yelled in disbelief. Shanna walked over to Kaito and Alice, and reached out her bloody hand to Alice's wrist, and held it for a moment. "...Hes right...Alice..." Shanna said, barley holding in tears. "No way....." Was all Hanyuu said. She hated almost everyone, but she never exactly hated Alice, she actually secretly kinda liked her...a little. "S-She...... she told me that a slayer's g-gift was death... and t-that's when she told me to come here...... GAAH!! IF I HAD KNOWN WHAT SHE WAS GOING TO DO I WOULD'VE STOPPED HER FIRST!!!" Teto shouted, upset with herself, she slapped her self in the face hard, leaving a red mark on her face. A few more of Kaito's tears fell onto Alice's body. "The last thing she did before.... jumping into that black hole was.... kiss me..... and I just stood there like an a*s hole..." Suddenly, Shanna flinched. "Huh? TETO! Did she tell you anything important, like anything you needed to remember before you left??" Everyone was startled by Shanna's sudden loud outburst, but Shanna had a naturally loud voice, so she couldn't help it, most the time anyway. Teto shifted uncomfortably in place, as all eyes were on her. "She also said, 'The blood keeps flowing until the blood stops." and 'This is the only way I can get Lily destroyed and Kaito back to the way he used to be. I once went to a certain temple, and they said I had a gift. Yes, I've never told you this, but I'm a slayer. And every slayer for each generation has the same gift. And that gift is death. Please understand what I have to do.' I should've known what she ment by that." "The blood keeps flowing until the blood stops...maybe thats a clue on how to bring her back!" Hope beaming both in her eyes and voice. "It didn't sound like it, though. She said that it was a saying or something." Shanna tilted her head to the side in disbelief. "Are you certain about that?" "I'm pretty sure she ment it as a saying. I'm just in shock that Alice is dead." Teto looked down and started fiddling with her fingers. Shanna looked over at Hanyuu, the dragon just shook her head, indicating that she was not sure. Shanna sighed. "Its thanks to her I was able to beat Lily no problem." Hanyuu huffed, not wanting to beileve that. "And it's thanks to her that I'm still alive...." Teto said, still looking down and fiddiling with her fingers. Kaito slowly spoke, " ....That all of us are alive, you mean." "Huh? What you mean? Did she tell you something?" "She said.... she said that if she didn't jump into that black-hole, this entire world wouldn't exist anymore......" Teto held back tears. What a brave thing for Alice to do... "Did she..really say that?" Shanna spoke unsurley. "From the tone in his voice Im sure she did." Hanyuu replied to Shanna for Kaito. Then, Shanna also held back tears.
