She's sitting at the table with her eyes downcast. A half-filled glass of water sits in front of her.

I sit down across from her.
"Julie, seriously. Can you please tell me what's wrong?"

"I was a monster." Her voice is as low as her expression. " I feel so awful about what I've done, I think I'm still one."

I am Itsukuma Masami. Today was a busy day, but I did it. I got Aiko back from her mother! Her mother, though stubborn and extremely difficult to reason with, did eventually see how silly it was to take her daughter off to the mountains based on a fear that she wasn't even sure was going to come to pass. She did this mostly because she felt Asai was enough of a threat. Besides, I'm going to be the one to deal with Asai.

Now it's late, everyone is about to go to sleep for the last day tomorrow before we go confront Asai. Except Julie, for some reason she decided to stay up and mope about something or another.
I wonder if it's related to that thing that she really, really, really didn't want to tell Mom earlier.

"Julie." I use that light scolding voice that Mom sometimes uses. "You're not like that now. Please don't worry about things that happened a long time ago."
"No! You don't understand!" She snaps back, "I'm a terrible person!"

"Julie!" My voice is even more stern this time, "I don't think you're a bad person! Isn't that enough?"
"That doesn't change the things I've done or who I used to be!"

"What ARE the things you've done, Julie?" I pout, "I don't think they're as bad as you're making it seem."

"NO! They're, I-"

Her eyes meet the table again.
"I don't want to talk about it."

>"I think you SHOULD talk about it. If not with Mom then with me."
>"There is nothing you can say that will make me think less of you, Julie.
>"Then take your time."
>Say nothing.
