Every day, the words cross my mind. "If I had done this back then..." but they don't take the sincere form of regret. The words are just an excuse that come to my mind then disappear.
To get what you want, you put up with something, make an effort, learn a skill, and inspire yourself. Is that how it is with Hinazuki too? Right now... I can tell she's enduring something. Just the opposite of me, she is pretending to be indifferent. She pretends to feel nothing, but a 10 year old girl isn't that strong.
"Believing in someone." That's a weird phrase, isn't it? After all, if you truly believed in a person, you wouldn't need to say, "I believe you." It's like saying, "I believe in air." I don't mean to say that "believing in something" is like a lie. "Believing" is really a term of hope of wanting to believe. The future is always blank. Only your willpower can leave footsteps there.
