All’s Well That Ends Well

My consciousness, blasted away by the explosion…

bg127

giandaivanu4-5-2b Gian: Gh…!

bg00

Body hurts…  D’the explosion do me in…?  …’m I dead…?  …It hurts…  So heavy…

My body’s…  No … something on top of me’s…

giandaivanu4-2-2 Gian: …U-Ungh…

bg127

I groan, and the weight above me … shifts and moves.

And…

…someone’s hand touches my shoulder.  …Someone’s gently rocking me, trying to get me up…

Giulio: …Gian…  Signor Gian…

Giulio:…

…I’m hurting all over…  ‘f I remember right, the Yankee’d turned tail … and then there was a … bomb … grenades…?!

giandaivanu4-6-2 Gian: A-A-Agh…!  Gh!

Giulio: Signor Gian…

Giulio’s calling me.  I thrash with arms and legs spiking with pain at every attempted movement, twist my neck around, and try to get up.

giandaivanu4-5-2b Gian: U-Ugha…!  …Giulio … you’re…

Giulio: Gian…

bg19

…I collapse to the ground, and, gazing upwards, I blink open my eyes.  And what I see there…

bg00

Giulio: …Gian…

giandaivanu4-3-2 Gian: Giulio … you’re…

…What’s…?  There’s something … so warm, so cold … droplets of something falling onto my face…

…Are you crying, Giulio…?

giandaivanu4-2-2 Gian: What … ‘re you crying for … Giulio…?

If Luck < 80, go to Giulio Bad End 02.  Otherwise, proceed to Normal Ending.

…What’s wrong…?  …Why’re you crying…?  …’s it from pain…?  …Wait, are you hurt…?!

giandaivanu2-7-2b Gian: Hey, Giulio…?

At the edge of my vision, something flickers…  The remains of the truck and sedan’re still burning, their embers flickering…

The reflected light illuminates…

giulioscene42

Giulio: I am so glad…  Gian … you are not hurt…

I can see Giulio’s shadow stretching its hand towards me.  The hand braces my shoulder, sits me up…  The gentle, soft, powerful hand…

Gian: I-I’m fine…!  You think something like that’d get the best of me?!  Don’t you underestimate the Lucky Dog!

Gian: More importantly, Giulio, how’re you…?!

Giulio was draped over me…  He’d blocked me.  …Could he be…?

giulioscene43

Giulio: Are you all right, Gian…?

Gian: I told you, I’m fine…!  Are you…?  There was that explosion…  We scraped by?

Giulio: Yes…  Look, here…

Gian: Huh…?

…Belatedly, I finally realize.  Our bodies’re stuck in some kind of a shallow hole.  Why’s there a ditch – or rather, a trench – here?

Giulio: I did not think when I leapt … but there was a bunker here.

Gian: H-Huh…?

My eyes throb…

bg00     giulioscene43

Gian: Seriously…?  I’m … and you’re…

Giulio: …Yes.  Ha … haha…  …As I thought, you are amazing, Lucky Dog…

His voice – direct, warm, earnest, always with a whiff of tears.  No matter how many times I repeat the same question, he’d probably answer me with the same voice every time…

Gian: …Amazing…

I glance around from inside the ditch…  In the darkness, the remnants of the cars are burning, the dark red tongues of flame glimmer, throwing light over the countless hideous bodies…

But … we’re living!  I’m living!  He’s living!  We’re alive!!

Gian: Giulio … thanks…

Giulio: …?  What … is the matter…?

Gian: …For coming to save me.  For choosing me … over the grandpa…

giulioscene44

Giulio: I…

Giulio’s eyes waver for just an instant … before refocusing on me with a small, tiny smile.

giulioscene43

Giulio: I … am no good without someone … to give me orders.  So, I … I chose … who could give me those orders.

Gian: Hm?

Giulio: …Signor … Gia…  Gian…!

bg00

Like a supple whip coiling me in, he catches me in a strong embrace…

bg127

giandaivanu3-3-4 Gian: Giulio…!

I can’t feel the pain in my body anymore.  Giulio’s arms practically bury me as they squeeze me tight….

…For a while, we stay like that.

giuliodaivan4-1-2c Giulio: …Gian…  It hurts a little.
giandaivanu2-5-2d Gian: Haha … guess even someone like me can hurt you sometimes.
giuliodaivan5-6-3 Giulio: Yes … it hurts … a little.

We chuckle, our faces buried in each other’s necks.  And, in that position, I … look up at the stupidly bright night sky, lit by the moon and all those stars…

bg00     bg19

giandaivanu3-13-1b Gian: Thank you, God Almighty!

And, for now, I just leave it at a thank you.

“Don’t worry about me!”

giandaivanu3-2-1b Gian: Huh.  …Huh…?  Huh?!
giuliodaivan2-1-1 Giulio: …?

transition184     bg0

Wait.  Don’t tell me…?!  God really exists?!  I’m hearing God’s voice?!  My good fortune’s really, truly a blessing granted me by God?!

bg127

And then I calm down again.  Giulio’s eyes’re staring away…  That’s where the voice’d come from.

aless06 Alessandro: Helloooo!  Can someone take this off, please?  …Shit, damn crazy Yankee…  I’m gonna fucking sock him a good one—
giandaivanu3-11-1 Gian: Ah…!!  Old man…!!

Giulio and I leap up at the same time, Giulio supporting me as I stagger in the sand pit.

We dash over to the wheelchair parked in the blackness and find our Boss, bound to it.  Giulio quickly undoes the rope with deft hands.

giuliodaivan2-9-2 Giulio: Capo … del Salto, you are safe…!
aless02 Alessandro: Yeah.  Even like this I’m tons sprightlier than you two.  …I’m sorry for causing so much trouble for you all…
giandaivanu3-7-1b Gian: …Pops…

The Boss’s hands rest on our shoulders.

    I just can’t help but love Capo del Salto. He’s like a father figure to Gian in a way.
