a distraction from the inevitable

X: "I don't want to play this..."

Jil: "What happened to you? You used to love playing video games..."

X: "That's because I could escape. I suppose you could say the same about any other art form, books, music, art. Fantasy isn't real, beautiful, but not life. Sometimes I wish I could regress."

Jil: "Why don't you...?"

X: "Because it hurts too much to know that it won't last forever. Everything is just a distraction from the inevitable."

Jil: "Which is: ?"

X: "Death."

Jil: "Is there something wrong with being distracted...? Maybe it's a good thing. Maybe it will allow you to enjoy life again."

X: "...Maybe."
