"i won’t let my brother’s life, and this village, perish like some afterthought."
あまえっこ by nomade
You don’t realize how precious something was until you’ve lost it. Like foolish living beings that humans are, I believed that he’d always be there when I turned around.
Perhaps I only wanted to believe in his smile, the ‘it’s okay’s he whispered to me. I blocked out all the sad smiles he gave me, the little droop of his shoulders as I disappointed him again and again, the tear-filled eyes that refused to let the tears drop.
Yes. I would have continued to live, oblivious to his pains, if he had not left me. ☁
