For just a few moments, the war stopped with the death of Kururugi Genbu. Both sides froze in a state of disbelief.

“A worthy foe,” was what the Britannians mumbled in hushed hallways.

“A wonderful ally,” said the resistance leaders in front of their troops.

But just as soon as they had spoken their piece, a skirmish broke out just outside of Tokyo and the country again sank into violent despair.

Suzaku mourned alone in the shrine. He had sacrificed all he had for the good of his people. Now he had nothing. But in a time when children felt forced to commit actions that were not suitable for adults, this was the only outcome that could be expected.
