To Take a Stand
|I'm sorry... It's... over for me...|
Forgive me, Master...
I... too, can barely stand up...
|[All three of us, finally at our limits, collapse to the ground at the same moment.]|
You pushed yourselves as hard as you could.
But in the end you were bested.
All that effort... for nothing.
Or perhaps not. You earned a lesson in futility at least.
Swear to serve me as my minions, and I think I might just let you live to see another day.
The weak can only survive by obeying the strong.
This is the way of the world.
(He'll let us live?)
(Maybe it wouldn't be so bad to work for him...)
(Kintaro seems to at least treat his subordinates kindly.)
(As long as we do what he says, we'll live on to see another day.)
(Or better yet, maybe one day we even become his friends...)
(I guess there's only one thing to do, I will submit to--)
|Don't take this the wrong way... But you sure are quick to follow orders, aren't you?|
(I remember now. Mikado said that to me the day I became a spirit agent.)
(I used to always do whatever the people around me wanted.)
(It always felt easier... I feared the consequences of facing authority...)
(I won't live that life anymore... It ends here and now!)
I admire a person who stares down death with dignity and defiance.
So, come and get me, spirit agent!
