“CHOCO-BOCO-LINA~! WELCOME~! GET YOUR TIME-TRAVELING PRODUCTS HERE AT CHOCOL—” Before the silver-haired male could embarrass himself any further, he slapped a hand over his mouth, glaring heatedly at the overly-excited-looking gray-faced being.
“I’d say, I would win.”
“Though, I am not entirely sure as to what the pairing 213 is — I thought it was just a substantial number — my mun practically starts sobbing any time she sees anything 213-related. I kid you not.

Not so. *stands with him* You’ve just resolved not to run away, correct? So don’t leave now. *takes a deep breath* I can’t… answer something like that so swiftly, I’m afraid— I loved them both very deeply, and I still do.
Hmm, I see… well, as I have stated before—even more so when I was a female—take as much time as you need for your heart to heal. *pats his shoulder* I can wait. I am rather quite patient.

O—oh… I… I see… i—it’s understandable. You’ve loved them for so, so long.
…Yes. And I’ve hurt them both countless times. I don’t want to do the same to you. I am tired of living with guilt, of being afraid to touch those I care for for fear of contaminating their purity with tainted hands.
I don’t expect that I shall ever fully forgive myself. How I have been forgiven by them is something I will never understand. *sighs* I don’t… you don’t deserve this. Neither did they.
Kain, I honestly doubt you could ever hurt me.
