"Ugh, " he rubbed his temple. He suddenly had a splitting headache.

"H-hello?" he said into the mic, but it wasn't working.

What the fuck is going on?

"Nín hǎo, Koris, " he heard a soft, familiar voice say behind him.

He gasped when he turned around.

"Fátima, " he said in disbelief.

His sister.

It was impossible, but there she stood, wearing purple and black – her favourite colours.

Immediately he stepped on the podium and started towards her, but he had to pause briefly. The pain searing through his head was almost blinding.

"The pain will go away soon, " she assured him in Mandarin.

"What's going on?" he asked. Although he loved seeing his sister, the surreal situation had completely disoriented him. "Did I pass out?"

Fátima gave the "eh, kind of" gesture with her hand.

"Did I, oh, God, " he shook his head feverishly. "Am I dead?"

His sister gave him a sad smile followed by a slow nod.

Lord Young paced back and forward a few times as he tried to process what was going on, but in the end he just fell to his knees sobbing.

"Why?" he asked through the tears. "What about everything I was going to do a-and, oh, God, Me-Melody?"

He felt a soft hand on his shoulder.

"A cruel twist of fate has brought you here, " she said softly. "I do not think it was your time, Koris, please know that, but we cannot change what has happened."

"H-h

ambitions.

"I was so close, " he said more to himself then to his sister. "So close to making a real difference."

"The universe is a cruel place, " she said honestly, "and when you are ready, we will leave it and rest in peace for all eternity."

"I don't feel ready."

"Nobody ever is, but take your time."

"If I wait long enough, will the Jhard rise?"

"This version of the Jhard, yes."

"I'm going to wait for that. I've never seen a sunrise with my own eyes."

He plopped himself down like a child at the edge of the courtyard and stared in the direction that the Jhard would rise from hours from now. Fátima sat down next to him.

The siblings talked for hours, Fátima even managing to make her brother laugh. To his own surprise, Koris was beginning to feel at peace. And, after watching the blazing Jhard appear in the sky, he followed his sister into the light as his mind got consumed by nothingness.
