[Ash clenches his hands as he hears the news] That little.. [He let himself call the anon several names in his head. He called himself a few too. Idiot, why weren’t you there for her?!]
[He looks into the young girl’s eyes and smiles] Marona, that anon was wrong. You’ll always have your old friends and you’ll always have the new ones you made. [he kneels down so that he is now at eye level] You’ll always have your parents with you. They’ll always be watching over you. They’ll always be with you in here. [he points at her heart]
[he pats the girls head and lets his hand linger there] You’ll always have me Marona. I’ll never leave you.
She notices he seemed upset. “It’s okay, Ash…..”
Marona sniffs at his words, repeating to herself, “In my heart…? O-Of course! You’re right Ash, they’re always with me, and so are you!”
Marona hugs him again, giggling. “Everything’s just fine now, because you’re here again! Forever and ever, right?”
