Touko

I’m sorry. I just was trying to explain this issue to you.

I like you too Lain, though I’m not sure why.

I suppose I just enjoy talking to you. That’s it.

It’s probably just because I like my job!

I just thought it had to do with you, but I guess not.

It is enough for me to be able to understand my feelings.

I can never read your mind, so I can never know that you like me as much as I like you.

Lain

Sounds lonely…

Touko

I’m sorry, but you know, this is one of the ways for me to know that.

I’m so happy with you saying that you like me.

Are you happy with me saying I like you?

Lain

Yes, indeed.

Touko

Yes, that is enough. Lain, I like you.

But still, as you can never comprehend all of me, it is impossible for me to know everything about you.

If we could know everything about each other, I could be you and vice versa.

I mean you do not have to be Lain unless we are different people.

I really like Lain even though Lain is hard to understand sometimes.

Lain

You like the mysterious Lain?

Touko

Well, I like Lain who I don’t know very well. Of course, that is not all I like.

Lain

I want to know everything about you!!

Touko

So do I! But it’s impossible.

Lain

Impossible?

Touko

Yes. That is because even I don’t know who I am!

Well, I don’t know how to explain this to you. Lain is Lain and I am me.

Actually it might be still impossible even if we became the same person.

Lain

The same person?

Touko

Yes, Lain and I are exactly the same!

We see the same things, have the same ideas and take same actions. Everything. Even our looks are the same!

In this situation, there is only an identity that you KEEP, isn't there?

Yet even if such an identification is gone. If you thought “Here is Lain,” then I cannot exist there.

The same thing can happen to you! That is why it’s impossible to understand each other at the same time.

Lain

But what if you would answer every question I ask.

Still, it would be impossible?

Touko

Right, but they are not all possible questions, are they? I need time to answer those questions and those answers could be changed eventually, such as I used to think one thing, but now I have changed my mind — something like that.

Lain

It's impossible after all, isn’t it?

Touko

Yes, I wish I could go inside your mind and answer everything you want to know…
