My restoration magic isn't working...
I am a human.
It's said you should never enter the scarlet mansion that sits on the edge of the lake.
You, you think so?
Yeah, I do.
The other day, I went to Reimu's place for the first time in a long while. She even has a grandchild now, you know?
I've finished my new spell to keep that rat out.
Without beginning or end,
the ring stretches into the infinite.
Koakuma is the only one who hasn't accepted Patchouli-sama's death.
just a little bit lonesome.
I learned a new spell.
I'll have Meiling try it out with me.
Meiling isn't coming back to life...
If only Patchouli were here, she could have saved Meiling.
If only I were stronger...
But in that reality I found the answer.
Is something the matter?
...You really don't change, do you?
It makes me wonder which of us is really the youkai?
A mortal human.
Because time magic...
Without beginning or end...
...the ring stretches into the infinite.
But that won't do.
Can you really call that living?
I'm sure your time will repeat into eternity.
"If you were immortal, we could be together forever."
I say that...
...and yet my time runs out first.
What a laugh!
...you're joking, right?
whimsical self, right?
Because a white haired devil lives inside.
The white devil repeats the same days like the turning hands of a clock.
I suppose she's either heading home to Makai or going to see Patchy right about now.
Onee-sama. I will become a mage.
You think so?
Perhaps it's true if you say so, Onee-sama.
Time manipulation magic is the greatest taboo.
...takes the user's time...
...and binds it.
You are a clock.
I said, "Stay with me as long as you live."
Perhaps ignorance is bliss.
Reality is cruel, isn't it?
A life that is reset every day like the turning hands of a clock.
According to the letter,
Don't you have anything to say?
Patche was a dear friend of mine.
There is no need for farewells.
Two sugars, right?
Milady became interested in reading novels she'd never read before.
The little mistress sank into grimoires that I think are above her level.
That black and white rat.
This should cut back on the book theft.
But, Marisa... ages ago...
Will you knock that off already?
You're disgracing Patchy just to satisfy yourself.
The next day.
Koakuma disappeared leaving behind a letter.
To think that Patche has died...
Just leave it in the usual spot.
No, I think I'll take four.
I will become a greater mage than Patchouli and bring Meiling back!
Mages need sugar to use their head as much as they do.
I think you're plenty strong as a mage, Flan.
But, you know.
As I put all I had into my studies, I came to understand something.
Little mistress, how many sugars?
It's embarrassing to me as a fellow devil.
'Cause she's so strong.
Four is fine.
You haven't aged a day, have you?
Has she not noticed it herself?
Well, it doesn't really bother me.
But... there is one thing.
Our employment contract with Koakuma ended the moment Patchy died.
You'll stay with me as long as you live, won't you?
I guess because I stop time, it must flow just a bit differently for me than a normal human.
As she says it, her voice sounds a bit...
You can't bring back the dead.
I found a way to go see Meiling.
Do you know why?
With unchanging days and unending days...
...the hands of your clock continue to turn in place.
This is just your usual...
