Ivy

... That person again.
[Footsteps]

Miles Durand

Hello, young lady.

Ivy

......

Miles Durand

Apologies for talking to you all of a sudden... You've been dazing off in the cemetery for the past few days. I've noticed you for some time already.

Ivy

......

Miles Durand

Haha, it's okay. Your reaction is perfectly normal... In the past, my wife had scolded me a lot about my habit of casually talking to strangers.Ah, you just so happen to be sitting on her grave today.
[Glass Bottle Clinks]

Ivy

... That's?

Miles Durand

Clairette de Die... You may have noticed it too. These days, I've been carrying it with me all the time. I don't drink it very often though. *Chuckles*

Ivy

You... don't seem to be sad?

Miles Durand

Should I be?

Ivy

Of the people I see here, most of them are sad.

Miles Durand

... Perhaps my story can answer some of your questions, young lady.
[Lights Cigarette]

Miles Durand

Lilian and I married all the way back in 648. I always call her Lily. Our days together were pretty good. We often went on vacations to other Nodes... Although we didn't have any kids, we were very happy.

Ivy

I didn't ask you about this.

Miles Durand

Haha... Well, it's just an old man's story. Won't cost you much to listen to it, right?

Ivy

......

Miles Durand

Four years ago, we went to a beach in Node 27 for vacation. All of a sudden, Lily fainted and collapsed on the ground. Afterward, her situation gradually got worse... In the end, she could only lie in bed, unable to move even a finger.

Ivy

She's sick?

Miles Durand

Of course she's sick. However, the biggest reason was that we both got old... It was odd though. Only until Lily's collapse did I truly start to notice that. I spent all my savings to try to extend her life. I searched across the whole world for treatment methods and new medicine. I even tried the latest medical system in Node 03... Yet Lily still continued to get thinner by the day.

Ivy

People inevitably get old. You can only slow down aging. It's impossible to return to your previous, younger state.

Miles Durand

Indeed... For four years, I was constantly thinking; is it time to let go? The doctors had discussed it with me many times and asked me to be prepared. However, I just couldn't make up my mind.

Ivy

Did you make up your mind in the end?

Miles Durand

No... but someone else made up my mind for me.

Ivy

Who?

Miles Durand

...... Simon Jackson, that's his name, right? That hacker.

Ivy

 !? Æsir...

Miles Durand

That night, I was dozing off while holding Lily's hand... When I woke up, utter chaos was playing out right in front of me. Doctors and nurses running around, screaming... The display showed nothing but a flat line. Alarms were blaring nonstop...

Ivy

......

Miles Durand

When I turned around, only then did I discover that Lily was... already gone.

Ivy

Do you... resent that hacker?

Miles Durand

That hacker? No. He may, and probably should be resented by other people, and he should be punished according to the law... But I don't feel anything towards him. To me, it's just a small push from god.

Ivy

I don't understand...

Miles Durand

At the funeral, every single wrinkle on Lily's face reminded me of the things I forced her to go through in the past few years. You're still young, so you probably can't understand. However, I know that Lily has already gone to the other world. A place where she no longer needs to suffer and can spend her days in peace...

Miles Durand

It was then when I finally understood. My unwillingness to let it go ended up causing her to suffer more pain... Perhaps she never wanted to be like that in the first place.

Ivy

Is that why you aren't sad?

Miles Durand

I'm sad at first, of course. However, now, that sadness has already transformed into other emotions... I realized the truth.

Miles Durand

Sometimes, you just got to... let them go.

Ivy

...... Why did you tell me all this?

Miles Durand

Haha, I like to talk to random strangers after all... When I see someone who's also concerned about something, I can't help but chime in a few words. Even though I don't know what you're concerned about...

Ivy

......

Miles Durand

All in all, I hope you can find your answer... This glass of wine, take it as a blessing from an elderly stranger that's going to leave this world soon. What do you say?
[Drinks Wine]

Ivy

...... It's sweet.

Miles Durand

Yes... This was Lily's favorite drink. She was so fond of its taste.
[Signal Lost]
