“Why are you all so sad? I’m not dead, you know!” a familiar voice spoke. Mallow opened his eyes; a tiny star with a face floated above the doll.
“Don’t be sad now,” the star said as he flew around and gently touched each of their hands. “I’ll always be your friend, and I’ll watch over all of you forever. I promise.”
The star circled around them one last time before flying away after the Star Pieces. Despite what he had said, Mallow was certain he saw tears streaking down the star’s face as he flew away.
Just like with the Chapter 6 illustration, I originally intended to do a big battle scene featuring everyone, but I just couldn't get it right, so I tried this instead. I like it, and consider it something of a representation of how we never see Mallow or Geno again. Truth be told the ending gets to me every time, and it's largely for this reason (that and the music).
