Author's Notes: spoilers
Watching Kadaj with the children of Midgar left an empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. I couldn't figure out why seeing these children clinging onto every lie he was spouting made my stomach hurt.
The little girl clinging onto Loz's leg gave a start. I watched her from the corner of my eyes. Something in Kadaj's words were ringing false to her, the one child who could read the lies.
I knew what he was doing; I knew why he was doing it, but watching these children I couldn't help but think 'they aren't much younger than he is' and wish that things could have been different.
But I would never tell Kadaj what I was thinking and I would never speak out against him.
