Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I miss you.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: ...I miss you too

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I don't know what I have to do to fix this. But I hate feeling like I've lost my best friend. I don't want to have to choose between you and Takashi, but if you tell me that's what I have to do, I would choose you.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: what am I supposed to say?

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't want to make you choose. I don't want to make you unhappy

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: but I can't understand your feelings

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I can't understand why you want to date a guy who thinks it's ok to do the stuff he does

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: he's going to hurt you

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: He already has. By taking you. And I am not forgiving him for that. But how can I blame him for something that is, fundamentally, the fault of the darkness he was born with? So I don't forgive him, and I won't forgive him until that's gone. But I value his intellect. I value his caring, and his kindness. Those parts of him *are* there. They just ... he guards them close because he's worried they will be used against him, like some sort of weakness. How can I turn my back on him? He needs help. And being his girlfriend doesn't mean I'm going to just pretend like everything's okay. It's more like ... like a promise of what could be, if we can fix him. Like Usagi's ring from Mamo-kun.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: do you want to date him, or do you want to date the guy you think he could be if you got the evil out of him?

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: 'cause those are two really different things

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: The second one, of course.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: does he know that?

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I think so? I don't know. I'm not very good at expressing myself about these things. But he knows that what he did isn't okay, and that saying sorry doesn't fix it. He says he's willing to do whatever it takes to make this work; I don't think he would say that if he thought it was working righ tnow.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: sorry, ami-chan

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: but I doubt that's true

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I know. And I'm not asking you to trust him, right now. I just ... don't want you to hate me because I do.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't hate you!

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I just

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I can't support this

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: it's a bad idea

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: and it's going to get ugly

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: it already has.

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: Maybe you don't hate me, but I feel like you do. Or maybe I just hate myself for hurting you. I don't know. But I don't feel good about anything, anymore.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't hate you, ami-chan

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I miss you.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I'm sorry

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: Don't be! It's not your fault. I'm the one that screwed everything up. Or he is. But not you. You didn't do anything wrong. *I'm* sorry. I just don't know what to do to fix it.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't know either

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: I guess I'll just ... keep doing what I'm doing until one of us figures it out, then. :( Just ... know that I miss you. And that I love you like the sister I always wanted. I'll talk to you later, I hope.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: please be careful

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: It's okay, he won't let our relationship progress until I've fixed what's wrong between you and I. So don't worry. There's no danger.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: when you say there's no danger, that's why I worry

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: How can there be danger if we're not even seeing each other

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: ...

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: I don't know what you want me to say

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: That makes two of us. Look, let's just ... stop. I feel like we're making things worse. If you figure out what you need me to do, I'll be here. If I get any genius ideas, or decide dusting him is better than hurting, I'll let you know.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: i'm sorry

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino:  :| We've been over that. You don't need to be sorry. You're the one who's doing the right thing. I'm the idiot who fell in love with an asshole.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: but you're asking me to tell you how to fix it.

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: >.< Why do I suck so bad at this? I don't ... I don't want you to fix Takashi. I just want to make /us/ okay again. Me, and you. I miss your cookies and your hugs. I miss going shopping with you and Usagi-chan. I miss you telling me how wonderful Nephrite is. I miss helping you with your homework, and I miss sharing tea and borrowing your teeshirts. And I know you don't know how to make that happen, and that's not your fault. But that doesn't make it hurt less. So please don't be sorry. Just ... just ... I don't know.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: can you give me some time?

Ami Mizuno texts Makoto Kino: As much as you need.

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: ok

Makoto Kino texts Ami Mizuno: see you at school
