Takumi wanted to feel sympathy when he saw Ed's reaction, he really did, and deep down inside he definitely did feel it. But at this point, the stew of emotions inside him was doing the talking, not his brain. " I don't get it. You overly correct every little detail I get wrong when speaking English, and then call attention to me not being totally confident in it, but you act like a wounded puppy when you get corrected. You're the one who always says being corrected is helpful. "
Takumi sighed as he came across a stray mirror in his drawers and looked inside it embarrassed by how red and splotchy his face, and especially his eyes were. "I don't hate you, Ed, I really don't. I'm just... you just told me what I've always wondered if you even cared about me at all. You obviously don't' And Ed...I can't be your friend unless you give me something back. Friendship shouldn't just be about you. You should also be happy for me, even if you don't like my accomplishments. You came in here mad about me leaving because of you being deprived of something, and not because you'd miss being in the dorm with me.... So yeah maybe I am like all the others...I tried not to be but..." he looked away from his own reflection and back at Ed, his face rather contrite.----
