Hasumi,

Truthfully, you hurt me. Is that what you wanted all along? You must have held such a deep hatred for me as well.
I acknowledge that it's what I deserved, but it still hurt all the same.

I trusted you, wholeheartedly. It was so hard to trust anyone else after everything that happened. With you and Hibiki... I tried to be understanding... I tried to understand when I had no understanding, when I was so, so foolishly blind. I laugh when I reminisce now. At least I don't have to relive that over and over again.
