So, here for your reading pleasure.
Excerpt from Episode VI: Return of Reality – Chapter 2 – I Am Not the One You Know
Chapter 2 – I Am Not the One You Know
December 12, 2016 – NERV HQ, Medical Wing
Rei was staring blankly at Shinji as Mari ran out of the room, barely stifling her sobs as she did. Rei had a blank look on her face, like when Shinji had first met her. She didn’t seem like herself, which worried Shinji.
“Rei?” Shinji asked.
“Was that her name?” Rei asked.
“No, that’s your name.” Shinji said. “Her name was Mari.”
“Oh… well…” Rei said. “Who are you?”
“I’m Shinji…” Shinji muttered. “I’m your friend…”
“But I don’t know you either.” Rei said. “How can we be friends?”
“I…” Shinji stammered. “You don’t remember what happened to you?”
“What happened to me?” Rei asked.
“You got hurt trying to saving to save us all…” Shinji said. “You almost died, he thought you had for a while there…”
“So… I am the third…” Rei muttered. “It wasn’t a dream…”
“What?” Shinji asked.
“Nothing of concern.” Rei replied. “Could you leave? I would like to be alone.”
“Sure, Rei…” Shinji said sullenly. “I’m glad you’re back.”
As Shinji walked out of the room, Rei’s blank look became one of concern and sorrow.
“So, I did die that day…” Rei said to herself. “But I can’t let them know that… I have too much to process. Another death… another horrific death…”
Rei shuttered at the vivid memories of her slow and painful death, flashes of her time inside the sweltering Entry Plug, the smell and feel of her flesh burning and cooking, her insides boiling, and the agonizing pain and loneliness she felt.
“No… they mustn’t know what happened…” Rei said. “No matter how much it hurts them, I need to keep my distance. Especially Mari… I should never have admitted my feelings for her when I cannot understand and interpret my feelings…”
