"Whether an objective is a meal or a man or something else, we tend to think that we choose something on our own initiative. But maybe we don’t choose anything at all. Maybe we are just pretending to choose things which might have been arranged in advance. Sometimes I think that our so-called free will might be just an assumption." said Aomame.
"If so, our life would be quite dim."
"But if you could love someone from the bottom of your heart, no matter how he would be a horrible person, no matter if he wouldn’t love you, at least your life is not hell. Even if it would be slightly dim. "

"You have a point."
"But who cares? This world will come to an end in no time." said Aomame.
"And the Kingdom will appear."
"I can't wait." said Ayumi.
