I can’t go on living like this.

Well, that’s what they told me, anyway.

They just don’t understand. Nobody understands. My life is really hard. I have to make lots of hard decisions. My ma taught me that I have to always look out for myself, ‘cause no one else will.

These people don’t understand what it's like. I need my stuff. I can’t live without it. It’s a matter of survival.

I mean, it's not like I don’t feel bad about what happened to my kid. But it’s not my fault. I never asked her to do anything my ma didn’t make me do. Besides, the only reason I asked her is because she was young and pretty and could bring home ten times the money I could. That’s just common sense economics. It's not like she said no or anything. She wanted to do it. She liked getting all dressed up and going down to the strip at night. She liked seeing the look in the eyes of them guys that paid for her time.

She was happy because I didn’t put any restrictions on her. She could come and go as she pleased, long as she brought home the money. She could go with them or bring them back home, I didn’t care. I would even drive her anywhere she wanted to go.

Plus, I needed my stuff. I’m sick, and she was taking care of me. That’s what kids are supposed to do, they're supposed to take care of their parents when they’re old and can’t care for themselves anymore. She was doing her job.

It’s not my fault. I’m not the one that cut her up like that. It was that guy. They told me they think he’s some kinda psycho that’s going around torturing and killing hookers. He looked like just another customer to me. They ought to be out trying to catch him rather than coming after me. I didn’t cut her up. I didn’t kill her. She was just doing her job, getting some money so she could take care of her ma.

They just don’t understand. My kid is dead. She’s gone. I’m sick, and she was all I had.

What am I going to do now?

This was amazing! Especially since it's coming from Hiyori's (Haleigh's) mother's POV. Great job!

Thanks! Each story in the series is from an alternate POV except one - Matsumoto's.

Also, I might write a ninth one, about Shuuhei. Originally I had him born in Rukongai, but I need to change head!canon for a retcon that has appeared in part 2 of The Chamber. >_>

I've still got two Springkink prompts left and I was tinkering with part 2 to procrastinate on them. DX

Hopefully this week the prompts, The Chamber, and some other things will be up.

Awesome! I'm glad, because I was worried people would be confused by this fic.
