Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
Ryo doesn’t believe in ghosts, never has and never will, but they haunt him nonetheless. His ghosts aren’t ethereal phantoms, the souls of the departed, they’re memories and regrets and the ‘What If’s that plague anyone who’s lost a loved one in tragic circumstances.
What if his parents had taken a different flight? What if they hadn’t picked up the wrong package at customs? What if he’d gone to the airport to meet them? Would he be dead too, or would all three of them still be alive?
Sometimes he wishes ghosts were real. He misses his parents so much.
