-THE STORY (Yes, it has a story)
After the events of "Slaughterhouse", the Rodcap moves to the reappeared Lost Light.
Suddenly, a red, giant planet appears.
Megatron: "What is that, in the name of...?"
Ratchet: "Wait a moment. It can´t be. It´s the Earth!"
Ravage: "Don´t be stupid! Galvatron and the others are in the Earth! This planet can´t be human´s home!"
Nautica: "Unless... The quantic motors... have duplicated the Earth"
Skids: "Oh, jeez. Don´t tell me we have destroyed the universe or something. It wouldn´t be more annoying."
Swerve: "Maybe we are dead, maybe we are a step until Primus´s home! But the bad point is we are with ejem, you knowww..." (Looking to Ravage and Megatron with a sarcastic face)
Ravage: "Another joking "ejem" and I will turn you my food you little maggot"
Megatron: "Calm down, calm down. Where are Chromedome and Rewind? Are they safe?"
Blaster: "They are outside. They are making contact with me. Yes, yes... Ajam. They are ok, but a bit nervous. Logical"
Megatron: "Any ideas why Earth is red instead of blue?"
Blaster: "This liquid... It´s like blood, but, I don´t know, the scanner is crazy. The analysis set its composition is different from blood. More like the primordial liquid... Oh my God"
They look a the rest of the Eva 01 floating in space.
Ratchet: "It´s fossilized. What the heck is that?"
Blaster: "We have life signals! Two! And Humans! What are the orders?"
Megatron (serious): "Let´s rescue them"
At the beach, Shinji looks the giant Rei with a palid, scared face. He doesn´t believe yet what he had done. Asuka is sit next to him. Shinji
doesn´t dare to look her, not after what happened. Not after she almost dead in the battle. And he´s sure she hates him.
Suddenly, a light, and a giant robor appears. Shinji looks at the machine, an enormous robot with no face and two wheels in their shoulders. He is with a littler robot with a red face.
Chromedome: "Don´t worry, you two. We are going to rescue you"
Shinji: "I am not worth for it. Please, take Asuka"
Rewind: (Look at Shinji, at his face) "Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?"
Chromedome: "With it or not, you two are coming with us"
Shinji: "No, no. PLEASE, DON´T TAKE ME WITH YOU! I DESERVE THIS!"
Chromedome take the two boys. Shinji tries to resist, but it´s not useful. The ship takes off. Shinji looks at the Earth at the last time. He whisper: "Bye, Misato, everyone. Sorry"
They arrive to the Lost Light. Ratchet stays with Asuka and Shinji at the nursing. He declares that is a miracle she has survived with these wounds. She and Shinji don´t speak a word.
Later, Asuka sleeps. Shinji goes to the oil reservoir.
Asuka gets up, and start walking in the ship. She hears a conversation between two robots.
They talk about the strange red planet, the giant being, and the boy who went to the oil reservoir.
"Oh no" she says.
At the oil reservoir, Asuka watches how Shinji start fall in the liquid. Asuka achieves to stop him and she throws to the ground.
Asuka: "What the hell you were doing, you idiot?"
Shinji: (Look at her with the palid face again. Asuka stays petrified) "You said that. Remember? You said that I would hurt you, I would make you pain, because I never loved myself. I never loved myself. AND IT´S FUCKING TRUE! (Says angry) I NEVER LOVED MYSELF, BECAUSE I ONLY HURT PEOPLE!! Like... you. Let me end this, Asuka. Please. Let me die. LET ME DIE!!
DON´T LET ME LIVE MORE! (screams louder and louder)
DON´T LET ME LIVE WITH THIS PAIN!!
Please (stars crying and look at Asuka) I beg on you. Please. Asuka, help me".
Asuka stays quiet. Her arms approach to Shinji´s neck. He closes his eyes. Asuka hugs him with love.
Shinji: "Why, Asuka?"
Asuka: "Don´t ask. You can´t love yourself if anyone loves you. I hate myself too. So let´s learn to love ourselves together, ok?"
Shinji hugs Asuka.
Hours after, Chromedome and Rewind come to the pair. Shinji sleeps over Asuka´s legs, and she look with a maternal face to Shinji. Then, she looks at the two robots.
Asuka: "You are..."
Chromedome: "The two that rescued you. This is Rewind, and I am Chromedome. Nice to meet you... oh." (Looks at Shinji)
Rewind: "Are you ok? The others were a bit scary with the screams. Seriously, nobody want to come here and see what was going on!"
Asuka laughs softly.
Chromedome: "We went to see if you were ok, and to tell you we land in a planet. Its atmosphere it´s full of oxygen, so you can come with us and see the stars. If you want. Maybe you prefer see the planet..."
Rewind: "Oh, Chromedome, don´t be so importunate. They are tired, surely they want to stay in their room, or something else."
Asuka: "Oh, don´t worry. I want to see the stars. Wait, I will wake up Shinji"
Later, at the Lost Light roof, the four watches the beautiful and nightly sky.
Chromedome and Rewind embrace together. Shinji and Asuka look at each other, and embrace too.
Maybe they can learn to love theirselves together.
I hope so.
