Original: 53ミニッツの青い海 ／ Blue Sea of 53 Minutes (Track 02, from 卯酉東海道 ～ Retrospective 53 Minutes)
Everything hurts. Every muscle in your body is screaming at you, begging you to stop, to give up, to just collapse and sleep forever. But you don't. You fight back, your intentions to see Reimu this one last time giving you the strength to retaliate. As usual, your spiritual being triumphs over your physical one, but this has led to your downfall on more than one occasion, and you know this. Despite it all, you keep walking.
But this dream hasn't given up on its efforts in trying to stop you, as once again, Death extends her lovely hand to you from above, as you look into her eyes, which have softened into a warm, deep pink glow instead of the sharp scarlet blaze which had encompassed it earlier. Her smile is friendly, graceful, and inviting, and you notice your hand subconsciously drifting upwards to grasp her outstretched one; you can feel yourself losing your grip, as your soul begins to slip away from your being. But you notice the strange third pair of eyes behind hers; in fact, the multiple pairs, staring out of the abyss at you. You realise what's happening, and instead grab your weapons and plow your way through the deadly duo, matching the onslaught of ghostly pale butterflies and reality shattering spells with your own magic power, backed by the fragments of Reimu's own power that you've been collecting on your journey. You pray that it's enough.
Now you've reached your limit. You're teetering on the edge of oblivion, and it still stings where your soul has been tugged at and pulled and yanked by Yuyuko's ability; one she swore she'd never use again. But you've realised how desperate everyone's become; they all knew what would happen, every single one of them. You're practically hauling yourself across the ground, the unkind terrain scraping your shins and knees as you give in and fall heavily to the floor.
But that soft, white glow catches your eyes - you look up, expecting to see that ghost girl or the border witch standing in front of you, preparing to finish you off. What you do see stuns you. It's a girl in white; white dress, white sleeves, white ribbon tied to her dark hair. You let out a gasp, and she turns around with a confused, oddly normal facial expression."Oh, you made it", she remarks nonchalantly, "I was wondering when you'd get here."
