Hel loved Masafumi. Now, deep in her heart, she admits to the past
tense. Not that she can't bring him back. She's sure of success there.
She's not sure, however, that she can bring him back right. She's not even sure what
He had been so perfect when she met him. He had enough money and enough
undirected madness to be readily led to serve her obsessions, to share
her obsessions even. He proved brilliant enough to take her questions
and her careful experiments and leap over the barriers of the known and
the possible. She made him. How could she not love him?
She has told herself that it was only the madness of the
transformation, the madness they never succeeded in bypassing, that led
him to attack her. She doesn't believe it. She's not sure if he simply
didn't value her or if he realized that her love for him wasn't pure,
not as Schoen's or Neu's or Tot's. She loved him, but she loved their
research and their family too.
She could bring him back tomorrow. She could bring him back next week.
His mind won't be there, however. In some ways, she'd rather not have
his mind. She's sure he could learn brilliance again, brilliance
Her hesitation is that she doesn't know what her sisters will do if
Masafumi has changed. Neu was made to serve him, an experiment of
sorts. Schoen defines herself by the man in her life. She can't
function without one. Tot.... A child needs caring parents, and
Masafumi did that well enough. Hel has to decide what she values most.
Hel touches the fluid filled column that keeps Masafumi suspended
between life and death, heaven and earth. Then she touches her own
abdomen. For a child of the Takatori line, old man Saijou would support
her research, at least for a time. He might even pay a stipend for her
sisters. He would take the child, though, and she's not sure she can do
And she can't guarantee a normal child, not when she's using her own
uterus as an experimental environment. Cells gathered after
Masafumi's...change may well produce something Saijou would not
recognize as human let alone as Takatori.
