That just makes me love her more. Poor Rika, she's had so much pain in her many lives. Having to live on, knowing the pain that lies ahead, and bearing all the pain she's had in the past alone. And yet she still finds a way to smile and laugh every day. I just want to see her brilliant smile every day. to see her grow up strong and healthy.
But if I can't do that, I'd want to see what she looks like with a face full of pleasure, not pain. Of course, though her body is child-like, she actually has the mind of a woman. Surely at some point she's wondered what it's like to have the body of a woman.
So perhaps, if I showed proper sympathy, being her only true friend, and the only man in her life, in a moment of weakness she would ask me to help her feel like a woman. And oh how I would help her.
