A woman who gives off a very dangerous vibe. It seems as if she is hiding some sort of bitter resentment from the people around her.

Though it was only a bit after noon, the sky was completely covered in gloomy clouds. The drops of rain colliding onto the freshly erected tombstones seemed to fragment into softer and smaller droplets. I've forgotten how many times I've seen you die. But aren't I responsible for bringing you this ill fortune?
"Was she that person's Food Soul?"
"Yeah, it's her.......like a curse, that person's life has been plagued with misfortune ever since she was summoned."
"How did that person die?"
"I heard that he was worried that she was in danger and braved the rain to find her. He had always been extremely sickly, and this time, he contracted pneumonia. In a matter of days, he simply passed on.”
"But I'm confused, is she really a Food Soul? Maybe she’s a Fallen Angel, or one of those specters after all."
"Shhhh.......can you speak more softly? If she overhears us, she'll probably come for your life."
Every time you die, it’s almost as if I can hear those mumblings afterwards. I was an enemy to some, to the extent some would call me a ghost or witch.
But it doesn't matter, I'm used to it. Even though this was another separation, it also signified that you’ll return to me once more.
The Moon Egg in my hands gently quivered as it drew the Soul Power from the tomb. This was a method of establishing contact.
"......You've reborn once more. This time, in Parisel."
As always, the "you" buried below this tombstone is no longer the one I love. As for the "new" you.......we will meet again soon.
1, 10, 100.......I've already forgotten how many times you're reborn.
From the moment we signed the contract, you've already become the most important person to me.
You're the one who taught me how to understand this feeling - love, a powerful force that I'll never give up on.
To us, not only does it last all too short, it also seemed to bring about our separation without fail.
Fortunately, I'm able to find you again, no matter what.
Walking through the crowded streets of Parisel, I saw you and your friends playing.
It has been 6 or 7 years since you last died. Now, you’re just a child, with a naive and pure expression.
I pondered, which one of your past lives do you resemble the most?
Is it the brave "you," who got eaten by Fallen Angels while protecting me?
Or is it the warm "you," who hoped I could still smile when you were on your deathbed?
But no matter which memory it is, it’s always filled with the moment of you breathing your last breath. The mere thought of it perturbed my peaceful mind.
"Lady, are you looking at me?"
".......Please don't mind me."
Though you carried on and continued to play, from time to time, I could see that you still looked back at me.
Like a ribbon, this relationship of ours has not been fractured. It is my only clue of your whereabouts.
All I have to do is to wait. Before we sign the contract once more, I'll protect you.
So, grow up more quickly. Please?
III. Locked in My Heart
When I was summoned yet again, you've already grown up. Upon witnessing this moment, you couldn’t help but feel elated. This made me remember the times we first met.
".......This time, will it be longer?"
"Ah, what do you mean by longer?"
I want to give you a smile, yet, my heart is unmoved as ever.
"Starting today, let's give it our all! Ah, come to think of it, I feel a sense of familiarity. Have we met before?"
This time, can you recall our past?
"Uh.......I'm sorry, I must have overthought it."
"It's okay, I am used to it."
"Anyway, your eyes are really pretty. It's almost as if you can see through someone."
Yes, I can forsee that eventually, you'll end up like them, buried six feet underground. You will face this inevitable future, powerless to prevent it.
“Cough, it’s better if we stopped chit-chatting. From now on, you’re gonna help me. If there’s anything unclear, you can ask the other Food Souls. I believe you’ll be familiar with all of this in no time!”
And it’s because of this that we must treasure time.
From this day onwards, it has already been one, two years… .... time silently vanished. As I wait for that day to come, I’m still trapped within my worries.
It's a gloomy rain.
In the garden, I quietly looked at the water trickle down the roof, hitting a green rock sitting beside the platform. It really did look like the tombstone from back then......
I tried hard not to think about it. But whenever I tried to recall something enjoyable, it was all a blur.
"Yo, you've been sitting there for half a day, not moving whatsoever. Is it because you like this kinda weather?"
"Oh......eh, is there something you like?"
My memories started to surge back into my mind. That's right, every single time, you've always asked me this. Every, single, time. And this, this is the beginning of everything.
Though my memories were in pieces, I could vividly remember you asking me with a smile on your face. No matter how much time has passed, this remained unchanged.
You're the person I like.......but whenever I say what's inside my heart, I fear it will bring forth death.
"I want to understand you better. Even though you don't talk much, everytime you look at me, it's almost as if you’re waiting for me to speak. Perhaps I’m wrong, but still, I want to confirm it."
"......It’s already happened."
"The 'walk towards the end' has already begun."
It wants me to look forward to it, yet I prayed for it to not come.
"Beginning......but there's always a beginning in everything. When there's a beginning, there'll definitely be an ending."
"That sort of ending, it would be better if it would never ever come."
"The ending will still come regardless! But anyways, it could possibly be an ending that you shouldn't worry about."
"Nothing for me to worry about......?"
"As long as we have a future, there'll exist a beautiful ending. Presently, we can hope that it would be a happy ending and beginning. This is like the light within darkness."
"That's right, like us now!"
Of course, you've always been optimistic and full of hope about the future.
"I'm sorry for throwing around such big words out of the blue."
No, all your words are deeply imprinted in my heart. As long as you're by my side, I'll be able to see the light that you speak of. I hope that it can continue to linger on. Or even better, never disappear.
"Woah, look at the time. I need to go out for a while, so can you forgive me for deciding to spew all those big words? Seaweed Soup, can you give me an answer after I come back?"
Without any explanation, you flashed a smile at me. As you left, it almost seemed as if you were bathed in sunlight, despite the rain.
But you never came back.
It's still the same ending after all.
That so-called happiness, I'm afraid it'll never come to my side. Everytime my eyes appeared to be able to capture that faint hope, death would follow suit.
Crying? There's no value in it.
Sadness? I'm already numb to it.
1, 10, 100, 1000.......I've already forgotten how many times you're reborn. The happy ending and that ray of light. All of these are what you spoke of, but when can I truly witness them?
V. Seaweed Soup
"Oh, oh! Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!”
In a certain restaurant, there was a head-throbbing explosion of sound. A white-haired youth and a little girl followed the sound and rushed towards the source.
"Sigh, what on Earth are you doing?! The customers thought that all the ruckus was from a Fallen Angel. Everything is on the verge of turning upside down!"
"Master Attendant, you're too noisy! Can you please be more quiet when you're cooking?"
"Oh, sorry. Rice, Ichi, come and see my newly-summoned Food Soul!"
"Food Soul? Wow! Doesn't her black apparel look kinda strange?"
The black-clothed lady slowly opened her eyelids. Her hollow eyes laid on the person who summoned her.
"We meet again.......this time, will it be longer?"
"Ah, what do you mean by longer?"
"Are you dumb? Don't forget that Food Souls have previous memories."
"They are memories not worth recalling. As long as you're here, everything is fine."
"You have a point. Come to think of it, your eyes are really......"
"Cough! Why did I say such awkward things.......Anyways, our team still needs to be stronger. Your strength is indispensable, so come and create a future together with me!"
"Hey, that's still awkward."
The white-hared youth shot a disapproving look and the two fought again.
The black-clothed lady silently looked on all of this, and began to chant what that person said.
