It's so lonely here. I've been here so long, someone, anyone…
no one. No one ever comes. I've been here so long. It's so dark,
so dark here, and the pain, it hurts, why won't it stop?
Mother, please, help me. Make the pain go away, make it stop,
please. Mother? She's gone, though. She went away so long ago,
just before I got here… why? I… can't remember… it hurts to
remember. It… hurts… What is that? Why do I… is that the sun?
Mother, I remember when you used to read me stories at night.
You would tell me about the great deeds of my father and of
my grandmother, and her mother before her. You made me proud
to be who I was. Our family was special, you said. I was destined
for great things. So long ago, who was I? I was beautiful, wasn't
I? Mother… she told me I was. I would wake up and she would
hug me and stroke my hair and tell me I was beautiful. I was
so happy all the time… no, not all the time. Why was I unhappy?
Her only daughter, I was her jewel. Her… jewel? Why does that…
sound… is that a sunset?
It's so cold here, someone make it warm. But nobody ever makes
it warm, not for so long. My brother, he used to… he used to
sit with me while I read my books, he would sit with me. On
the cold nights, in our huge blanket, he would try to stay awake.
He said someone had to watch out for me, so that I would always
be safe. Why wouldn't I have been safe? He always fell asleep
before I finished the story. I would read about heroes and dragons
and lost adventurers. I remember the story of the machine… no,
that wasn't a story, was it? The story? It feels… so… is that
I can't see anything, it's so dark in here. Make the darkness
go away I'm frightened, uncle… My uncle, he used to play with
me and teach me about the world, the sun, the flowers, the trees.
He showed me so much, so much. I loved to fly kites, and play
with uncle's pets. It was so much fun, I would run through the
fields outside the house and pick the flowers. They were so
beautiful, and everything was so bright and colorful. But I
always had to stay inside, after… after what? Why couldn't I
go outside? It sounds… like… The ocean?
It's so quiet here… I keep calling, but nobody answers. Why
don't they answer? Professor, he would always play music for
me. I used to dance at parties, in beautiful gowns. I remember
how nervous I was the first time I tried to dance. Professor
tried to show me, but I couldn't get it right, I kept falling
and stepping on his toes. But then my brother… he would dance
with me. He was a good dancer, it was as if he could float on
air. He showed me how to dance, and I danced with him at the
ball. I was… I was happy then. Happy… I remember… that… Night?
It's so empty, so empty here, I'm frightened. Why can't anyone
be here, why do I have to do this by myself? It's been so long,
I don't want to fight it anymore… don't make me fight. Sensei,
I used to watch him train my brother, why do I remember now?
Sensei was so strong and wise, he could make so many things.
They used to fight, but why did we need to fight? It was so
peaceful, wasn't it? Why did my brother… they used to… is that
I remember, we would all watch the days end, up in the highest
tower, we would watch the world at dusk. The yellow sun had
set in the red skies over the green grass and blue ocean, until
it became the black night… and then the stars… and the white
moon? I remember it, the colors… but why… the colors?
Someone's crying… so much pain. Is it me? No, no it's not it's
someone else. I can see… I have to help… him. He's… he's dying.
Someone help him, please, I don't know how I… the jewel? The
story? I have to… to fight, to protect… Janus? Are you crying?
Don't cry, please, I'll save you! I have to save you… Janus.
Here, here, I'll help you. I can save you, the jewel, it can
save you! Please work!
You're okay… but you're not… how? You're not Janus. Where's
Janus? Where's mother, and uncle Gaspar and Professor Balthasar
and Sensei Melchior?! Why aren't they here anymore? I miss them.
Please, help me, I'm so lonely. Please find me… help me.
