Transcript

Dear Bridgette,

I understand your concerns about me taking up this dangerous line of work. As a member of S.T.A.R.S., I will always be in the line of fire. I figured this was as good a time as any to try and explain my actions.

Bridgette, I know I’ve talked about her before, but the memory of my little sister eats at me from the inside. I couldn’t save her from that criminal.

I know you tried to console me, telling me that there was nothing I could do being so young. But I was so paralyzed by fear and doubt that I couldn’t do anything.

My baby sister was killed right in front of my very eyes and I couldn't move an inch. I couldn’t protect her. I was so helpless. It feels like I should have died in her place and I just can’t shake that feeling.

All I can do is try to bury that feeling and protect the people that need it most, so they don’t have to go through what I did. I’m not giving up this job, and I will continue to protect who I can.

S.T.A.R.S. is the only way I can live with myself. I don't want to die in vain. I never want to hesitate when that moment comes again.

Don't worry; I’m not that little kid anymore and I’ll come back alive.

I promise. You're the most important thing in my life, and I always want to be there for you when you need me.

Love
Richard

ブリジッドへ

何故こんな危ない職につくのかという君の訴えは、当然のものだと思う。
実際S.T.A.R.S.の任務は常に危険と隣り合わせだ。
こんな機会だし、ちょっと真面目に話しておこう。

ブリジッド…
以前も話したけど、やはり妹の事件が、僕には大きいんだ。
少年時代、僕は妹を守れなかった。銃を持った犯罪者が相手だ。
君が慰めてくれたとおり、
僕にできることはなかったかもしれない。

ただその時、
僕は恐怖と躊躇に、何も抗えなかった。
妹が目の前で殺されたのに、一歩も動けなかったんだ。
守れなかったくやしさ、無力感…
妹は、自分の身代わりに死んだという気持ちだけが残された。

だからこそ、誰かを守る力になりたかった。
あのときの妹を、守れるような力に。

もう迷わない。大切なものを必ず守る。
僕にとって、自分を許せる唯一の生き方が、S.T.A.R.S.なんだ。

犬死したいわけじゃない。
大切なものを守ることに躊躇しない。
そして自分自身も必ず生き残る。

約束する。
僕が今、何よりも守りたいのは君だから。

君を愛す リチャード
