AN: Kaori seems the type of person with no self confidence and has to depend on someone... poor girl.

Disclaimer: I don't own Akira or any characters/objects/settings associated.

Summary: Kaori's thoughts on Tetsuo. Set around the time when Tetsuo is in the hospital.




Tetsuo...what happened to you? I'm so worried about you. So are the others, Kaneda, Kai, Yamagata, but especially me. I don't know where you are or what to do...

I'm so lonely right now, I can't talk to the other girls in the dorm, they just tease me and call me for not being pretty enough or having nice clothes and hair and the fact that I hang around with boys all the time and don't care about fashions...

The Capsules. There's no way I could talk to them. They don't care much for me, they only tolerate me because of you, Tetsuo.

I wish you were here. So lonely without you...nobody to talk to at all.

Sorry, I shouldn't be placing this all on you...I'm sorry I'm not pretty like the other girls, you deserve so much better than quiet, ugly Kaori...

I hope wherever you are, you're okay. I like you, Tetsuo. I care about you, and I don't want you to be hurt. I don't want you to leave, because then I'd be alone. I can't think of a life without you, Tetsuo.

Please be okay, please come back. I'll wait for you no matter how long it takes.
