That was the only time I ever regretted using my power.
You... I really really,
I wasn't, stupid.
Rinnosuke... I'm sorry.
I said such a horrible thing.
I was lying, so,
I really like you, you know, so don't die!!
There was nothing to forgive.
That's my reply for yesterday.
But from the start,
I've been hiding everything for my own selfish reasons...
Over such a trivial quarrel,
Thank you, I love you.
Please forgive me...!
...Don't look at me, idiot.
---Do your best.... Keine---
I was just... thinking about the past.
That it'd be best if that night never happened.
The next day, the boy opened his eyes, and didn't remember anything. Everyone else was the same.
Ever since I started using my power,
When one gets even an inkling of what was concealed, they'd remember it all again.
You always used to say...
That if you give up from the start, then nothing will ever begin...
How cute, my little girl's going on a trip, huh.
Although you're the one who looks more like a kid.
Let's go inside.
You look depressed, what's up?
Hold on there.
If he... ends up hating me,
When I was a kid, through my own disobedience, a close childhood friend of mine suffered a horrible wound.
Is for you to forgive yourself.
You finally said it.
I remembered everything.
Because I've always loved you.
Your face is all wet.
No, you die.
Let's say I was that childhood friend.
It'd make me really like you.
You'd then hate me.
All that's left,
Never before, never after.
Just that once, I regretted it.
That's nothing to cry about...
He's already forgiven you.
I've been looking over Keine ever since she was thiiiiiiiiis small.
I'm sure that guy,
She was so much trouble, geez.
If you forgive yourself but the victim doesn't forgive you, then you'll never be pardoned. The reverse is the exact same.
...No, that's my reply for that time.
And all that stuff happened. What would I think of you then?
...Sorry... I wanted to vent a little.
It doesn't last forever, you know.
I'm more scared of that than anything.
As I looked at him, going through countless days with high fevers and nightmares, I thought with all my might...
