Azan wins the war and now Maki has a chance to talk to that slave he liked the look of.
"Was I threatening to do something unsafe?"
"I'm not interested in hurting you."
"Can you back up a few steps? I think you lost me further back than you think you did."
"Do you want to fuck me?"
"I have no opinion about your sex life. Why?"
"I don't want to do anything to you that you don't want."
"Because you're a person?"
"You're a person and I'm not going to rape you."
"...If I were a person why would you maim me?"
"Because you were an enemy soldier. And because I failed you."
"...Sorry, back up, do you think it's okay to maim all enemy soldiers in full generality?"
"It's a ritual disarming."
...He can't afford to punch Maki. He can't afford to have any emotions that would lead to punching Maki.
"...I don't think Sesat has that concept."
"...Am I allowed to have an explanation?"
"You raised a weapon against our country."
He goes cold.
"Is that why you think I deserve this?"
"Do you think anyone who fought for Azan deserves this? If you could bring back the ones who died, would you do this to them too?"
"I don't think anyone deserves it."
"Then why did you do it?"
"...I don't know."
"Who would know?"
