History

After Redcurrant finished consuming the life essence of another man, she decides to take a walk in a beautiful garden.

She refused to believe she was in love with him, yet was unwilling to leave his side, slowly sapping his life away.

Plot

Redcurrant watches over Joel as he falls to illness. Listening to his regrets, she blames herself for leading him toward an early death. Chise decides to create a fairy salve so that Joel may see Redcurrant before he dies.

Redcurrant is finally able to voice her guilt, but Joel, instead of anger, thanks her for loving him and decides to offer what little of his life was left to her. Redcurrant cannot process why he would be so kind to her. All these years, she had taken his life, given nothing in return. She was the root of his early life, and the death he fears, but Joel reassures her that now that he knows he is not alone, he is no longer frightened of death.

Once a figment of his imagination, Joel's purpose for living becomes a reality. A bittersweet end, Redcurrant is finally able to accept that she loves Joel, just before he dies. After his death, Redcurrant decides she will care for his garden until the world turns to dust.
