There was no question about it. Mayu was going to die.
Warnings: Um, none yet?
Notes: Just an excuse to get away with not writing anything with any sort of plot. Again.
Mayu shivered in abject terror, her mouth opening and closing but no sound emerged. Her life was over. She just hoped it wouldn't be too painful.
"I'm so sorry!" Eliza continued to babble. "I didn't know that cupboard was only for cooking ingredients. I'm so sorry!"
Mayu swayed abruptly and Eliza jumped forward catching her arm and leading her to a chair. Mayu stared blankly at the wall of the workshop. She no longer noticed the blonde's apologies or the gathering crowd of curious inventors. All she could do was hope there would be enough left of her for her mother to properly bury.
"Hey!" Eliza tried to grin encouragingly. "It can't be that bad, right? I mean maybe the ingredients of the cake will change the effects of Ishtar's Tears. I'm sure everything will be fine!"
The young cook watched her life flash before her eyes, twice. So short a time she'd had on this world, and she'd been so proud of her newest creation! So stupidly proud. Of course she'd wanted to share it, and who better to share with than the one person she knew would truthfully give an opinion on it? "Lord Nox..."
Mercifully, consciousness fled as Mayu fainted.
Ishtar's Tears- the in game description makes it sound like a powerful lust potion.
