❛ Do you ever just feel like there’s no real reason for you to be alive ? ❜ -Kuro @ Snow Lily
just monika. / accepting.
❛ you know i’ve felt like that before . ❜
a person turned into a monster , nighttime in paris , moonlight shining on cobblestone streets . you were no smaller then , but you had felt like it , weak and alone . a monster . you had called yourself a monster at that time and placed your life in the hands of anyone who would take it . why had you been alive , then ?
cheeky as you are , you answer your own question . you had been alive then so that you can be alive now .
❛ things are different , now . i have a reason more important than any . ❜ there are children to look after . there are those you have saved and those who are waiting to be taken in and loved . your reason for being alive is to love as much and as many as you can manage . everyone was born to be loved , after all .
❛ —— kuro . ❜
you always speak softly , but even he should know there is weight behind the single call of his name . he’s not looking at you , eyes trained on another game of his you’ll have to ask him about sometime . you know he’s listening , though , so it hardly matters .
you take a seat next to him , a hand placed gently on his back over the layers of blankets he’s wrapped himself in .
( it always seems like you play the part of the older sibling , even though you’re younger by far . )
❛ even you are capable of finding a reason , you know . if not for yourself , then would you do something like that for the sake of the people who love you ? ❜
