—As the tower collapsed, as Reid’s flash washed over him, Subaru Natsuki’s life burned out.

His final moments completely evaporated.

There were a lot of questions Subaru had, like how had he kept his foothold in the crumbling tower, or how had he resisted that all-consuming shadow, or what did he intend to do next, but he set all that aside.
