Corbin was always interesting to Bobie the times he’d catch glimpse of him around the area, though never enough to make him want to go outside his box of comfort. Until of course, Corbin approached him first. He doesn’t really understand why Corbin’s different. Doing new things, feeling new things- It was all something Bobie never wanted, but with Corbin, he feels himself actively seeking it out. Maybe it’s the company he’s been missing all his life, maybe it’s because no matter how tired he is when he’s with Corbin he can stay awake longer. Or maybe there’s no one reason, just a culmination of several he doesn’t yet fully understand.
Bobie was nothing to Corbin. Just another body to fill the void of nothingness with something tangible, as are most to him. Something about Bobie, though, was much different. Perhaps the apathy, or the fact he didn't particularly want anything out of Corbin besides company.
Nobody has ever cared about Corbin. The feeling is foreign and he doesn't know how to handle it. Desire that's not physical, but emotional. Just wanting to spend time with someone, just wanting to love them in such a genuine, innocent way. It's amazing. It's terrifying.
Midori loves Catherine more than anything in the whole world. She is the one he dedicated everything to, that he took vows to, and that he wanted to stay with forever. Even though he was never enough, even though she yelled and hit and grabbed because he could never amount to what she needed from him, even though he was terrified of her, he still loves her. He was the one who took everything from her. Her dreams, family, security, her life. The guilt is overwhelming and crushing, and it follows him everywhere.
Catherine never wanted much. She wanted a family, some hobbies, that perfect life she was promised she'd have. And he took everything. God, he was pathetic. Sniveling, weak, nothing like the man she thought she'd married. He was intelligent and funny and just like her. Then he was nothing. Catherine was miserable. She took it out on him, a manifestation of her frustration over the fact she'd never have anything she'd ever wanted.She thought that maybe if she had a baby it would solve everything, that a child would make him realize he needed to get over himself and his pointless woes. But that never happened. She never got pregnant. She never got anything, And then, she died.
