"But... but how can you help me? I mean... you nearly killed Takeda. You nearly hurt my friends." She then glared up at him. "Why should I trust you?"
"That's just it. I'm only one person. By myself I nearly killed them all. Tell me, exactly how do you think they'll hold up against the entire Arashi force? Can you really live with the fact you didn't do anything? Together we can stop the Arashi and both walk away happy. You'll have your friends, and I won't have any competition."
Takai smiled as he moved closer to Asuka.
"Isn't that what you want? Your friends acceptance and praise. Isn't that what your uncle wanted?"
