--...Qu'est-ce que signifie 'apprivoiser'?...Creer des liens?"

--Bien sur, dit le renard. Tu n'es encore pour moi qu'un petit garcon tout semblable a cent mille petits garcons. Et je n'ai pas besion de toi. Et tu n'as pas besion de moi non plus. Je ne suis pour toi qu'un renard semblable a cent mille renards. Mais, si tu m'apprivoises, nous aurons besion l'un de l'autre. Tu seras pour moi unique au monde. Je serai pour toi unique au monde...

~~Antoine de Saint-Exupery, conversation between le petit prince and le renard in Le Petit Prince

Kenshin: It's no use. I can't find it. The answer--how to atone for the crimes I committed as a hitokiri. I can't find it!

(Oibore looks at him for a long moment.)

Oibore: Is that so. Even with your weak, confused heart, you won't let go of what you're holding so tight in your hand . . .

(Kenshin looks down at the sword.)

Oibore: You lose what's most precious to you . . . exhaust yourself body and soul. But if you have something you can't bring yourself to throw away, whatever anyone says, that's your only truth.

Kenshin Thinking: There's one thing I can do. Protect the happinesses of the people I see before me. If one sword can still catch people's eyes, than it's enough to protect. People are suffering all around me. Whatever the reason, I can't let them be.

(Oibore picks up the little bottle and puts the stopper back in.)


Oibore: I guess we've thought enough about the past. Now . . . and from now on . . . the people who never stopped believing in you are waiting for your return!

(Kenshin seizes the hilt of the sword and pulls it free of the sheath, breaking the chains that held it.)

~from Rurouni Kenshin
