Pain

READ MORE

“Now! This is it! Now is the time to choose! Die and be free of pain or live and fight your sorrow! Now is the time to shape your stories! Your fate is in your hands!”

The physical pain has always been easier to manage. You can push yourself to get stronger and generally know where the limit is before you are permanently damaging something.

I know what I want and I know what I want to fight for. So why is it so hard to stamp out this indecisiveness? Why is there no sign that something has gone wrong? Is this really the farthest you can push? You’re really just going to sit here and watch, upon this mental plateau?

“People who are unable to abandon anything will fail to bring about any change. If it’s required to overcome monsters, one must toss aside their humanity. Those who can do so are victorious.”

“He’s a real monster. No matter what power you use to suppress him, no matter what cage you put him in, he will never submit to anyone.”

“I can believe in my own abilities or the choices of companions I trust. But no one ever knows how it will turn out. So choose for yourself whichever decision you’ll regret least.

“I’m strong. Stronger than all of you. I can do it.”

“I won’t give up. I’ll never give up again. If I died, I won’t be able to remember you. So I’ll win, no matter what!

“But I’m sure he met someone and that someone changed him.”

“You’re dreaming now.. aren’t you?”

“I feel like I’m always searching for something, for someone.”

“Her name.. what was it?”

“Wherever you are in the world, I’ll search for you.”

“Don’t you remember me?”

“Who are you? What is your name? Why did I come here?”

“In exchange for returning to this world, you must leave behind what is most important to you.”
