...It's hard to watch her and not vomit.
You feel horrible for thinking that, but it's true. As you watch her laying there you remember what she had once said to you. Words about killing her... and not holding back when you do so.
Still, if holding back means just splitting her head open without any other care in the world, then it'd be impossible. Nobody could be that heartless, right? Not wanting to answer that question, you bend down and look Eliza in the eyes. She's still crying, but she also seems to be smiling faintly.
She lifts up her left hand and holds her pinky out. The finger has started to decompose rapidly, and a bit of the bone is showing through. Seeing this, you decide to go ahead and grab the pinky with your own, and shake it.
Just saying something seems to take a huge amount of effort for her. The tears have apparently run out, and now all she can do is lay there almost motionless, still twitching every few seconds. Her eyes seem to be begging for something, and you think you know what it is.
"Hikari." You look over at the small girl and smile. "...Or, Theta. You should leave now."
She's too shaken to reply at first, but she manages to nod her head and hover off into the distance. You continue to watch her until she completely disappears from sight, and it's then that you feel that you can finish things. Raising the wand, you watch as it takes on a hammer shape once more. The hammer hangs over your head, and you tense up for a moment, until finally...
Splat. With a soul-crushing sound Eliza's brain is scattered on the pavement.
...Your knees give way, and it becomes your turn to cry. Not just for the person whose life you just ended, or for having to do that horrible deed. It's because of just how twisted and unfamiliar everything has become. The tears cloud your vision, and for a while the only thing you can see are a few lights that make up the mansion's windows. When your vision clears, the body has been mostly dissolved. There's still blood, though.
You just sit there for another minute, holding the wand-hammer in one hand and your head with another. A warm hand pats your shoulder, and you look up to see Hika- no, Theta. The twisted form that's been forced on Hikari.
"...Is she gone?"
"...She's probably happy now."
Having said that, Hikari also sniffles and starts to cry. You pat her head, unable to say a word. The only thing you can do for now is sit and mourn.
She swallows hard, choking down the sobbing. It took a few minutes, but the corpse is completely gone, and only the blood from the incident remains. You stand to your feet and feel Hikari tug your skirt.
"...You need to go inside and get cleaned up." She sniffs once more, and you nod. "There's a magic that lets you be invisible, but it takes a lot out of you... So, I'll take you in."
She grabs your hand, and the end of her wand sparkles. Your fingertips become translucent, and the effect spreads up your arms and over the rest of your body. Nodding towards your companion, you brush a hand past your ghost familiar and walk towards the doors of the mansion.
The magic doesn't make you into a ghost, though. Peeking through the door shows no immediate life, so you slip through and bring Hikari with you. She pulls the door shut and continues to follow you as you walk to your bedroom, where she walks you into the room and waves one hand in farewell.
"...I'll see you tomorrow." She looks exhausted, but she still manages a smile. "Don't give up, okay? You need to make Big Ma- um, make Yukari pay."
You smile and nod, then ruffle her hair before shutting the door. The first thing you do is remove the bloody skirt and find a bag to put it in. After that the rest comes off easily enough, and you've soon gotten down to nothing but the panties you're wearing. At this point, you honestly don't think you could stay up to spend time with Mary. Maybe she'd understand in the morning.
