Disclaimer: I don't—and never will—own Detective Conan, no matter how many characters from the series I claim in various blogcrews. Aoyama Gosho is the lucky dude who does.
Notes: Written for leni_ba's prompt, "any. any. Letting their child make their own mistakes.", with schweinsty's "Mothers and Fathers" meta theme.
Summary: Mary's thoughts on her son's death.
[Ficlet #9: A Mother’s Lament]She was right, she was absolutely right! She should've never let her son join the FBI! Screw letting your children make their own mistakes! She should've never let him chase after the people who've killed her husband!
All alone within the white walls of her hotel room, the normally stoic Mary finally allowed herself to cry.
