Once again, I got beholden with the idea that I should be the one to solve every problem of my girls. I had no idea how many times it was already that I forgot their willingness and wish to help me with what I planned for our future.
In my defense, I have this undeniable sense of responsibility to shoulder those problems they were facing. I pulled them into this complex relationship, after all.
I guess I was always blinded by that. Otoha, Hitomi, Akane, all of them. They’re not princesses on top of a tower who were just waiting for a prince to come to their rescue. They’re individuals that just like me, have their own minds and decisions. And because they’re also now connected to each other through the link with me, it’s fairly natural for them to also be worried over their well-being.
