Hizumi makes his final plea, begging Ayumu to accept the fate that has
been forced upon them. By killing Hizumi and taking out Kiyotaka before
his own natural demise, Ayumu can remove all the supernatural pieces on
the board. After all he's been through, Ayumu certainly intends to meet
his brother, but will he face Kiyotaka in the name of defiant hope - or
broken surrender? That may depend on Kiyotaka, as he reveals his last
cruel twist of the plot in the final volume of Spiral.
