My Review:

I first read this story a long time ago and thought it was time I did a reread.

Eiji's story is so horrible. What's sad is that I can see that happening in real life, and unfortnutely there are a lot of parents who feel that way towards their children. Chiaki's story is also sad, but in a different way. What Chiaki puts himself through because of guilt is the worst part. It's sad that the only way Chiaki knows how to comfort Eiji is through sex (and pain for himself).

I love how by the end they both came clean about why they did the things they did. They both wanted to move on because they had each other, and they couldn't go on properly if they could hide behind their past. The end of chapter five totally made me cry!

The epilogue is an awesome ending. I love how the scars of the past are still there, they both know they probably always will be. But they're still happy together, they get through it together.
