What it means to Affirm
——The sword of lightning I threw away disappeared into the empty sky.
“————That was stupid……Nanaki……”
I know that. But still Nanaki……I do not want to kill Envy. After all those tears were suppose to have the meaning of separating from my family. Why must I be separated from my family again, why must I have these kind of emotions a second time. Even if it is not through actually blood, you are definitely Nanaki’s sister.
you are family
yes it can
If I can only choose one, my sister or my master, if I can only choose onhe. Then what does it mean to enforce my pride. This is suffering. Again, it is going to become this kind of world again. I should have resolved myself, I should have affirmed it already. But despite that Nanaki is still lost.
but now you have seen it
“End it……this way……one curse will end……”
the correct path
Is this the world that Nanaki affirmed? Is this Nanaki’s pride?
the path only nanaki can take
——No. That’s not it.
Nanaki is special
That’s right, can Nanaki be proud of this kind of result? Can Nanaki really accept this kind of thing? No, this is not fitting for Nanaki who is Mother’s daughter. There is no way it is okay for there to be a daughter that yields to this. This isn’t it, the world I seeked for is not something like this.
never give up
Remember the words from that day.
word for word
‘Become a person that can affirm the world.’
become strong enough
Will I break my promise with Mother again? No I won’t.
Aren’t you one of the strong, Nanaki? Aren’t you stronger than everyone else? What have you obtained that strength for? Remember, Nanaki’s basis. What is my pride, what does it mean to enforce that? Can the weakness of giving up because it can’t be helped in this situation be called strength? No.
Why is that it has to be one, Master or sister, that is because Nanaki is weak. I was told to be strong, I vowed to become strong, despite that Nanaki still ran. Hating difficulty, hating pain, I have been chasing a convenient dream. That’s right, it is not so simple.
and open your own path
——How long will you be spoilt, wake up already.
to the world
Can Mother rest peacefully with this state of affairs? No, there is no way Mother won’t be worried about Nanaki having this kind of weakness. The pride I received from Mother, the strength, wasn’t everything I received for this day?
you can love
Aren’t you one of the strong, Nanaki.
Aren’t you a special human, Nanaki!!
you wish for
Then prove it!!
Be it the curse be it the prophecy——I will accept the entire world!!
don’t give in
What it means to affirm, is not something like that!!
if you are strong
“——I, Nanaki!! does not wish for a world without Envy!!”
if you have pride
To be strong, to be proud, is something like this!!
then crush fate
No matter how much suffering awaits, no matter how many curses I have to bear, Nanaki will keep being proud of herself. Isn’t that being one of the strong? Isn’t that what it means to be proud? It was for that that I obtained this strength. It is for that I have learnt this pride.
anything that stands in your way
Don’t run from suffering. Don’t run from difficulty. If you are strong, prove it. Accept it all and overcome it all. That is Nanaki. That is Mother’s daughter, Nanaki. Escape is not permitted.
is not needed
What prophecy, what curse. Isn’t it fine, bring it all on. I will accept it, I will receive it. There is no meaning in advancing down a path without pride, there is no way I can reach Mother’s greatness that way. And also, do not forget the strength to make that one step.
After all——The world is beautiful.
To see the world, I must not forget my pride. I must not forget my strength. I will prove it now, that Nanaki is a special human. I will affirm it now, this world.
if you are strong
“Envy, let us meet again. If I can meet the you that I love again, I will cross swords with you any number of times.”
“……haha. ……that stupidity doesn’t seem like it would be cured even by death.”
“I just realised, but I think stupidity isn’t something to be thrown away like that.”
you can do waht you want
After all, I could meet you again.
the world is harsh
“Even if Silver and the rest lose, they will come again and again. Me included.”
“I will accept it.”
“Things is important to Nanaki might be targeted.”
“I will protect it.”
the world is cruel
Thanks to you I now know what is true strength.
“You have intention of breaking the curse?”
“I will shoulder it. All of it. Because Nanaki is strong.”
“Yes, I am stupid. That’s why please hug me. I heard stupid kids are cute.”
(T/N: ^not a typo)
Today, Nanaki became strong. So it should be fine to be praised.
there are things
I leaped into that tattered body.
in this beautiful world
Ah, Mother. I think what Mother said really is correct. If I didn’t become strong, I wouldn’t be able to protect this warmth. Now it seems I don’t doubt those words. This world might really be beautiful. After all——
there are those you love
——it is this warm.
I’m tired out.
At some point the sky’s colour had become navy blue. Ah, Moon-sama is beautiful today too. Good evening, I’m Nanaki. I’m sorry for being selfish, but shall we talk a little? What does Moon-sama think of the sun? Nanaki thinks it is very beautiful. I think people cannot live without its radiance.
Moon-sama was hidden by clouds.
I think it’s sulking because we keep praising the sun only. Let’s apologise tomorrow night.
yes, remember to do so
A lot happened today, Friend.
There was no reply from Friend. He is currently recovering the energy he lost by blocking that one strike for Nanaki. Thank you for saving me. Rest at ease, Nanaki’s precious friend.
I see, that means tonight will be the first night I’m alone in a very long while.
That is lonely. Nanaki is no good at being alone. It makes me remember the time when Mother disappeared. Nanaki thinks that is definitely not weakness. After all, if I don’t think about it, I will forget it. About when Mother was in this world.
Ah, I really hate being alone.
but you are not
The estate is right there. Tomorrow let’s apologise to a lot of people. To master, to head butler Ridolf, to Shiel-sama. Because I think it is happiness to have people to apologise to. Because that means I am not alone.
you have a new family~
——that’s no good, master.
to wait for Nanaki
“I have returned, my master.”
“Is it over?”
“No, the same day will likely come again. But I——“
dont want to leave
Even so, I want to stay by your side. Because I vowed to walk with you that day.
“Hurry up and sleep. Tomorrow is going to be tough.”
i need you to work hard tomorrow
Master interrupted Nanaki’s words and returned to the estate.
A kind master
Thank you very much, good master. For promising a tomorrow. I shall repay this debt. Since master wishes it, Nanaki will stay by his sideunreservedly.
until he fulfills his desire
Mother, I think today I will see a dream of everyone.
Of my master and head butler Ridolf, of Envy, Silver, Salia and Raicou. And a dream of Friend who was injured for Nanaki. I think that is definitely a dream of happiness. I shall report to Mother again on another day.
Good night, Mother.
No! Envy shall not be killed off! Envy is Hecate’s second fav character in this series! Envy 4eva!
(1st is ofc Nanaki~)
srsly though, if she really got killed off, I would be very depressed
