“Trying to shoulder the burden all by yourself? Don’t be such a stranger. Weep and ask for help. Lean on me with your runny nose. Cry when you feel like crying. Laugh when you feel like laughing. When you’re tearing up with an ugly face, I’ll give you a good cry with an uglier face. When you’re laughing so hard your stomach hurts, I’ll laugh in a louder voice.
That’s how it should be.”
I came after hearing about a corpse-eating demon. Would that be you? A rather cute demon. Did you also take that sword from a corpse? A single child stripping corpses to protect himself, is it? That’s very impressive. However, you no longer need that sword.
A sword that’s only swung in self-defense, while fearing others, should be thrown away. I shall give you my sword. If you wish to learn how to properly use it… Then come with me. From now on, you will learn to use that sword not to cut away your weaknesses and protect yourself. But to protect your very soul.
By the time you notice that you’re caught in a spiderweb, it’s already too late.
