Ki covered her face with her hands & cried harder. "How could you ever want me as your friend again when I failed you!?" She sobbed. Ariel stared up at her, her arms still outstretched. "I lov-ve y-you..." She stammered. Ki stared into her friend's loving eyes. She didn't care what had happened. She didn't see it as Ki's fault. She only wanted her embrace, her comfort, her touch. Ki didn't know how to accept this.
