Summary: Dee can’t help wondering if Arnon’s fate could have been changed.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
Sometimes Dee wonders if there was anything he and his friends could have done. Maybe if they’d listened more, or told someone about Arnon’s mom’s money problems, Jess, or perhaps Mother…
Could they have prevented Arnon from getting mixed up with the wrong people, kept him from getting addicted to candy laced with drugs? If they’d paid more attention, tried harder, would Arnon still be alive instead of getting gunned down in an alleyway?
Arnon had been the best of them; he didn’t deserve to die that way. Dee will never know if he could have changed his friend’s fate.
