"I...I forgot. I'm sorry...I got so used to being able to..."

He chuckles softly and lets go of her.

"Y-yeah... I'm sorry..." she apologized and hugged her sketchbook even more tightly. The girl felt her eyes getting wet again, so she quickly turned her back on Taizai. While trying to cover her face as best as she could, Nayumi made her way back to the beanbag she was sitting on and placed the sketchbook on her knees before grabbing the pencil with her left hand. She didn't know why, but for some reason her right one barely even worked at the moment. It was probably something inside clogging up the mechanism, or a worn out nerve cable that wasn't transmitting the signals from her brain properly. It didn't bother her too much - one of the few benefits of having a mechanical body was that it could never be permanently damaged.

During her imprisonment, the girl had learned how to be ambidextrous, so writing and drawing with her left hand wasn't really a problem. She was only hoping that Taizai wouldn't question her about the sudden change of hands.

He notices her using a different hand than when she writes the notes in class.

"I didn't know you drew with your opposite hand...that's pretty interesting. Mind if I see what you are doing?"

"I, um... I tend to switch hands. I'm ambidextrous" Nayumi admitted, hoping her friend would leave it at that. Even though he was the only one who knew about her body, she didn't really want to worry him with the fact that one of her hands was practically broken unless it was absolutely necessary. Mind if I see what you are doing?, the boy asked her. "Huh? Um, sure, but it's... not much. I just started a few minutes ago..."

"Oh you just started? I'll wait then. Being ambidextrous is pretty cool I imagine."

He crouches down beside her and smiles.

"We are friends still right Nayumi?"

"Um... I g-guess so..." the girl whispered quietly as she continued to make seemingly random lines across the sheet of paper. The fact that Taizai never really loved her, despite the pain his confession brought her, was hurting her even more. Nayumi desperately tried to stay calm, for his sake. After all, what was she supposed to say? She was the one who wanted to remain just friends with him, so it would have seemed really selfish and hypocritical if she showed how much he had hurt her. But with every line she drew on the piece of paper, she felt that she was losing more and more control. It was only a matter of time before she burst into tears right in front of him.

"Well...that's good right? I enjoy your friendship, like I said."

He continues smiling as he watches her draw.

"Y-yeah... It's good..." Nayumi whispered and continued to draw. Suddenly, a few wet drops fell down on the sheet of paper, quickly followed by a few more. The girl stopped drawing when she realized they were falling from her own eyes. She quickly wiped her eyes with her sleeve, hoping Taizai hadn't noticed anything, then turned over the page of her sketchbook to hide the wet spots on it. "T-that's not good... I'll have t-to start again.."

"Why wasn't it good? I thought it was...but it is your art, do what you'd like."

He hasn't noticed any of her tears because he is so focused on not making any mistakes with her.

"It's... I j-just..." Nayumi stuttered, trying to come up with a decent explanation as to why she had to scrap her old drawing, but ultimately failed to do so. She dried up her eyes with her right sleeve again, desperately trying to calm herself down, but to no avail. She pressed the pencil against the paper again and continued to draw. "It just wasn't good enough..."

He noticed her wipe her eyes and looks worried.

"Nayumi...are you okay?"

"Y-yeah... I'm fine..." she lied and dried her eyes up again. She didn't want to cry at all, but her tears just wouldn't stop. Nayumi absolutely hated it when that happened, but there was little she could do other than try to hide it and hope it goes away soon.

"Why are you crying Nayumi? Did I do something wrong?"

He wants to place his hand on her shoulder but knows she wouldn't like it. He decides to do it any way in an attempt to calm her down.

Nayumi closed her eyes and sighed when Taizai finally noticed that she was crying. The girl was hoping she could avoid that, but unfortunately, it was inevitable. She lowered her head and covered her eyes with her palms. "It's not that..."

"What is it Nayumi? You can tell me."

He continues holding her shoulder slightly and starts rubbing it softly for comfort.

The girl kept sobbing quietly, still hiding her face from him. Really... what was it? Why was she crying like that? After all, Nayumi told him she couldn't be in a relationship, and Taizai told her he didn't love her, so everything was supposed to fall into place, right? Well... That would have been true, if it wasn't for one small detail. It was something that she realized shortly after his love confession, when she was all alone in her dorm room. And it was the real reason why the revelation that his love wasn't real hurt her so much. Nayumi moved her hands away and looked at him, her eyes still wet. "I love you" she whispered quietly.

He looks at her with shock on his face.

She what? She...loves me? Me?! After what I did?

"W-Well...I...I...wow."

That was all he could say. Hearing someone say that for the first time took him by surprise.

That's it? Wow? Jesus...Taizai...idiot!

Nayumi immediately averted her eyes as soon as she revealed her feelings. "I'm sorry" she apologized quickly and wiped her eyes again. "I shouldn't have said that..." The girl knew that she would only needlessly complicate things if she said something like that, but she felt this irresistible urge to tell Taizai what she really felt towards him.

He quickly hugs her and speaks softly to calm her down hopefully.

"Is that how you really feel?"

"Nayumi...I didn't say I would never love you. I just was unsure if I did. Give me some time to think Nayumi and I will give you the proper response. I promise. Don't be sorry Nayumi. It's okay."

He kisses her cheek softly and wipes her tears away.

"No..." she shook her head. "When I told you I can't be in a relationship... I meant it" Nayumi spoke quietly and closed her eyes. "You have no idea how much it hurts, but... There's no other way..."

"So...no matter how much we love each other...we can't be together?"

He lets go of the hug and looks into her eyes.

Nayumi looked back at him, with sorrow and regret in her eyes. "That's right... I'm so sorry... If only I was still human, I could have--" the girl cut herself off and looked away. She knew that continuing this train of thought would have brought her nothing but even more pain. After all, as much as she liked to fantasize about being normal, her humanity was forcibly taken away from her, and there was nothing she could do about it.

"But Nayumi...I don't care if you are a human, cyborg, whatever...as long as we love each other that's all that should matter right?"

He smiles hoping that she would say what he wanted to hear.
