I hate delays, so I am shamed by this one. Had to re-script and re-do this one. (Colorizing after a brief rest). I’m sorry that Hitomi just kind of got thrown into the characer equation, I know at least one person told me it might totally screw up the character dynamics if I age Goro and Aki a couple of decades in solitude, maybe even moreso if I throw a daughter into the equation.

Of course, that’s kind of what I’m going for: nobody’s getting out of Chapter 20 unscathed. Sarin got put in a very desperate place, Mori’s lost all her color, Kili’s got one more emotional wound now that she’s been attacked by her own patient, and now this.  (And it’s not over yet!)
