Asako-san lived in a limbo most of her life, dreaming of ways of might and could. Always hopeful for a promise made to her.
It's hard not to fault Asako-san for hoping and for dreaming. It's what makes her go on. It's what makes her—her.
I still love you Asako-chan. Even if I weren't the man you wanted or needed. Jinta needs you as I need you. Like lungs needed air to fill it up, my heart is full. I may not trust you, but I still love you.
