Hinako understood Izumi-san just a bit more- Understood the wanting but not having.
Looking back, she wanted to have loved those children; the one she lost and the one gifted to another family. But even though she could regret, Hinako couldn't love, not the way a mother did. The way a mother should.
But Daisuke was the only man she had ever loved, the only man she truly trusted. Hinako already loved the children they had yet to conceive together. The children they might never be able to have.
Why, she despaired as Daisuke stroked her hair soothingly, ignoring the wetness of her tears soaking his shirt, why does my body continually betray me?
