“Well, girl, you may have bad luck, but you’re on the lucky side of bad luck. Araragi-kun here didn’t just meet his; he was attacked. And attacked by a vampire. Is there anything more embarrassing for modern man?”

“You’re much better off than he was.”

“Is that some sort of Zen?”
“Shinto. Shugendo, specifically,” Oshino said. “You need to understand, girl. You didn’t wind up like this because of something else. You just changed your point of view.”
She was always like that.
Almost exactly what the doctors said, as they threw in the towel.
“My point of view? What are you trying to say?”
“I’m saying, you need to stop acting like a victim, girl,” Oshino snarled, sudden heat behind his words.
