“People leave.” It’s hard to force the words out. This isn’t a secret he wants to give up, even if Joshua will figure it out anyway, if he doesn’t already know.
His mother left, so long ago. His friend did, and took everyone else with him. Shiki hasn’t betrayed him, Beat and Rhyme and Eri haven’t, but Neku can think of a thousand reasons why it’s still coming, why it has to be coming, when he can’t understand what he did to make it happen the first time.
