"She was trapped under rubble."

Akira doesn't look up, doesn't make eye contact. Keeps staring a hole in that floor there, or maybe her legs. They're sorta out of focus.

"She's fine. She's a freak too, I guess. But I..." She shakes her head. "She must have been so fucking scared. So goddamn alone. I promised I'd keep her safe and I didn't." She punches the wall, not in some blind fury, but in a calculated attempt to release a bit of emotion. Afterward, she sighed and buried her face in her palms.

"Fuck, man, she's only eight. She doesn't think she's invincible the way I did back then. Can you imagine how that must feel? How that must have been? Fuck, what if she hadn't been like me? What if she'd just been a regular person? What if she was crippled, or in a fucking coma, or..." She shook her head.

"Fuck me. I keep making promises I can't keep. To myself, to Umeko, to Sharie, fuck, to all of you. I'm not cut out for this."
