(Friendly reminder that our main male lead has actually gone through hell quite a few times over the course of the series.
Another friendly reminder he’s 12-14 for these events.)
"Is that a threat? I know she would if someone did something to her. I trust Yakumo. You’re not going to do anything to her, are you??"
Now they were being kind of… suspicious. What were they talking about? “Do you know if something’s going to happen to her? Is that it? You’re not making any sense… whatever. I’ll protect her with my life either way, you can count on that!”
I don’t think that man is a certified paramedic
"But I already know that. Yakumo’s still the strongest person I’ve ever met. A lot of times she’ll say she’s okay when she isn’t because she doesn’t wanna worry everyone and she knows we’ll actually stop to take care of her if something’s wrong. But she promised she’d stop doing that, ‘cause it ends up making me worried about her a lot. So I don’t really get why you’re telling me this, you’re still kind of confusing…"
"Huh? I don’t know where you’re getting all this weird stuff from… Yakumo doesn’t tell me when she isn’t fine all the time, but she promised she’d try to stop lying and saying she was if she wasn’t. So I don’t think it’s really a problem anymore, she promised. We don’t go back on our word in our group. Still…" Well, Mushra still didn’t think she had been lying lately, or at the very least he hadn’t caught her doing so recently… He was starting to worry, with the grey-face’s insistence, that maybe she was doing it more often than he realized. He trusted her, but not always her health.
"I really don’t see what’s so hard about being blunt here, because you’re still not making any sense. Everyone’s got needs and problems, that’s part of life, right? But Yakumo’s honest unless it’s about her health and stuff, so I don’t think there’s anything going on…”
"Girls aren’t another species. Humans are. No big deal. But you’re being really confusing…"
