That burden on his chest is still there and probably will remain as long as he lives.
But at least, he has a home now.
He was born in the darkness and in a well-lit empty room, he found a companion covered in bright rays. It's too blinding. He can't help but close his eyes and once again, plunge back into the world to which he belongs.
"You asshole. Just wait and you'll see. And oh! Do you know that it's my birthday today?"
"Birthday? What's that?"
"Well, technically speaking, that's the date you were born. Apparently, it's celebrated annually. Holding a birthday celebration might be shallow for some but it holds something much more important. Nothing's more perfect than appreciating one's existence, saying 'thank you for being born' to the celebrant so that he too, may appreciate his own."
"Hey, are you really a child?"
"Of course, I just turned 9 today!"
"If that’s so… Thank you… For being born."

The quiet rage of the sea.
The hushing sound of overlapping leaves.
The way the remaining rays of the dusk kiss their flesh.
The sound of their even breathing.
Sounds romantic, right?

Everything, everything seems to retain its brilliance but something decided to exclude itself from that small band of glow.

"Do you really think that you can hide it from me?" The tone of his voice changed. Gone with his usual playful self. The Dazai Osamu sitting right across you became serious as a stone.
"H-huh? What do you mean?"
Instead of answering your question, he flashed his usual smile.

And that's when you realized that you've fallen too deep. Can you possibly escape now? No, not anymore. You can't. And even if you can, you choose not to, because that world that you've fallen into is a thousand times better than the surface.
The world is so so loud, but he's the one who listened when everybody else had plugged their ears.
The world is so so chaotic, but in him, you found peace and solace.
Now… How can you not love a man like that?
