"A monster is different from a person," Hiro corrected with pursed lips, wondering if he could even cut a monster. He supposed that maybe it was a situational sort of strength.
"Really?" Beaming, he clapped his hands together. "I’m glad I could do even that much. You’re a good teacher, even for someone like me who can’t fight."
"Sometimes people can be worse than monsters, so keep your guard up, okay?" He said it with the same cheery, innocent tone he would say anything — it was just a fact of life in his opinion, and it didn’t really bother him.
"Heheh, thanks. You learn quickly, even for someone like me who can barely teach. Will I see you around, then?"
Soaking in Micah’s words, Hiro took a moment to think about it. “… I suppose that’s true,” he admitted with a sad smile.
"Oh, but I think you taught me very well!" he brightened up, nodding. "It’s thanks to you that I learned anything. Ah— I do hope to see you around! Though maybe not under the circumstances that you have to save me again," he laughed, meekly scratching his cheek.
