Warnings: Features/analyses death and bereavement.

Sayu and her mother wept bitter tears over the death of Light. Kira truly had destroyed their family. Sayu kidnapped and tortured. Father killed and now Light also.

The one saving grace was that he was killed fighting Kira and all the evil he stood for. The memory of Light would always be pure and unblemished. But still, he was gone and that left a huge void in their lives. In a shallow world of reputation and good looks and academic achievement the love the Yagami's had for one another had been the only thing that felt true. And now that had been torn apart and thrown to the uncaring wind.

After spending some time together, they both separated into their own rooms to deal with their sadness alone. Away from one another they could sob as hard as they wanted and be as fully miserable as they needed. Alone they could be completely true to themselves.

Sayu looked around her room. Her clothes were all packed for University. Scattered all over the floor were her books of celtic mythology. She had never been as tidy as Light. She slumped on her bed. It seemed so pointless now. Going to get an education, all this studying, what for? She had only done it to impress Light. Almost everything she did, everything she achieved, was simply to make her brother proud. But now...now she had no brother. Now she was an only child. An only child in a single parent family.

Sayu sobbed for a long time; unrestrained and heavily. Her eyes were sore and her face ached. Her lungs were exhausted from the deep melancholy breaths. But finally, at some point, Sayu fell asleep.

And in her sleep she dreamed.

In her dream all was a hazy yellow hue. Yellow was Sayu's colour; bright, cheerful but not too ostentatious. There she sat, a younger version of her real self, next to a golden sea on fine yellow sand. The sun shone down, warming her head, and a pleasant breeze lifted the edges of her skirt and hair. Next to her sat Light. He looked beautiful, even more than usual. His eyes were lit up, their coffee tones, the honey streaks in his hair and the soft bronze tan of his skin all highlighted from the golden light that encompassed them both in a warm embrace.

Light.

She hugged him tightly. She breathed in his scent, a mixture of his cologne, the washing powder mum used on his stuffy, crisp suit, the underlying scent underneath that was just Light. God she loved him.

Light let out his soft, somewhat sardonic chuckle. She never heard him laugh outright, had he been unhappy, or just reserved, as she had always assumed?

He pulled her away and pointed to the ground. Maths papers lay about them.

That's right, they were meant to be studying! She laughed at her stupidity and grinned at him.

As they began to look down at the sheets of complicated patterns and numbers, a great gust of wind blew them all away and tossed up all the sand. Sayu whimpered and put her arm around her eyes. She could feel the warmth of her bother nearby and took comfort in it. In the next moment there were terrible sounds of harsh caws and the fluttering of feathers and beating of wings all about her. A few times the wings actually hit her.

She opened her eyes tentatively then gaped. All around them were hundreds of crows. They were jet black and shaggy with obsidian eyes watching her and Light with an eerie intensity.

Sayu shifted closer to Light. She had the feeling that the crows would not hurt her, but she still didn't like them. She looked up at Light expecting him to comfort her, but he was looking to his left. Following his gaze she saw in the distance a tall hooded figure.

Light's eyes filled with tears and he smiled before getting up and starting to run to the figure. Sayu cried out. No! She did not want her brother to leave her! She did not want to lose him to the hooded figure!

Light stopped and turned back to her. He grasped both her hands into his and kissed them. Sayu knew what this meant. He was saying goodbye! But before she could even begin to argue he had turned his back to her and ran off.

The crows all flew up into the air, making her cry out once again and fall to the sun was blocked out by the black feathers and the sea drowned out by the angry caws. She waved her arms about, and in a brief gap among the birds she saw Light and the figure even further into the distance getting onto a boat. No!

Desperately she scrambled to her feet and ran to them, doing her best to bat away the angry birds. She stumbled on the sand many times. She never had the grace her brother did. She needed him.

By the time she had arrived at the dock, they had already set sail. They were travelling into a distant fog. Summoning her nerve, Sayu leapt into one of the boats left behind and followed after them.
