I teased you so much. Admittedly, it was cruel of me. I didn't know how else to break the tension though. I truly apologize for not being the same old person you so desperately wanted me to be. Perhaps, I should have told you about the hell that was my life but, I suppose, the right moment to tell you never came. I tried but I always hesitated when I saw that look on your face. If I close my eyes, I can easily picture your look of disgust and your eyes searching for something that's no longer there. You're not very good at hiding how you feel.

Look after Ritsu for me, okay?
