The rain was slowly beginning clear, as was Miharu's mind. Perhaps the man was right. Perhaps forgiveness is something that was needed, if not for Riku's sake then for her own. As she came to the realization, she did everything in her power to deny it at the same time. She wasn't going to give in that easily. She had a brother to protect.

Get out of here, alright? Find somewhere safe to hide! I'll take care of this!

The memory rushed back in a split second. That fateful night that she had nearly been killed by another of the same monsters that took Riku's life, but Masato was the one who stood in the way and saved her. Once again, she was helpless to do anything and with Masato still missing, she knew there was only one choice left, as much as she hated to admit it.

With heavy eyes, she lifted them up and looked upon Harubo for a long while before simply saying, "I can't be helpless anymore."
