The person who I was before… she seemed to have already withered and died.
It’s said that there were some species of plants in the world that bloomed only once in a lifetime, then would soon wither and die after that.
Perhaps, I was like that as well.

“Because I can’t sleep.”


“That’s why I keep drinking it, that medicine.”

“…Every day, these pills.”

“Yes, every day.
Without skipping even one day.”

I had nothing to hide.

I nodded calmly, and Theodore just looked back at me blankly.

The grip he had on the pill bottle seemed to be getting more and more tense, and I suddenly felt the energy of an elemental spirit permeating the air.


I widened my eyes slightly as I looked at him.
I didn’t know he’d awaken his spirit all of a sudden.

Theodore’s expression hardened at once, and his hand was then engulfed in a blue flame.
I flinched in surprise.

After a short while, there was nothing left in his hand.

That blue flame burned the bottle and the medicine inside all at once.


As he raised his head to look at me, Theodore sighed.
All I could do was look at him in shock.
…He looked angry.
What’s the point of him being angry? I blinked in a daze because I couldn’t understand.

“This medicine that I burned just now.
Don’t drink it ever again.”

“…I took two pills last night, too.”

“You’re taking two pills at a time?”

“I started getting resistant to its effects and it just wasn’t working well once a day, so I increased the dosage.”

As if he was utterly amazed, Theodore burst out laughing.
Then, he sprang up from his seat.
While he approached the bedside table, he asked.

“Where is it, in the bottom drawer of this table?”

“What are you going to do.”

“Burn it all up.”

He opened the drawer without my permission and took the bottles out.
Every bottle he touched went in flames.

In a suppressed tone, he spoke once more.

“If there’s anything left, take them all out.
I’ll burn them all.”

Nervous now, I replied.

That’s all.”

“Are you certain? You’re not lying, are you?”

“…Why on earth are you being like this?”

I rose from my seat and approached the wardrobe, only staring at him.
My patience seemed to be running out now.

Theodore met my gaze directly and strode this way.

“Why am I being like this? Do you really not know that you need to ask like this?”

“It’s just a sleeping pill.”

“It’s poison! Drinking it over a long period of time will eat away at your lifespan!”

“That’s one of its benefits, yes.”


Theodore became still in front of me.

His eyes seemed to burn with those blue flames.

Facing him, I answered calmly.

“There are some people in this world who would like to sleep forever, you see.”
