In one world, Nagachika Hideyoshi waits and waits and
for his best friend to tell the truth. Hide wants so desperately to be wrong, despite the mounting evidence before him, so he puts his hands over his eyes and waits.
He knows the truth, has known it for ages, has known it even before he went to the CCG, but he dares not say it out loud.
It's only real if Kaneki admits to it, so Hide doesn't dare push his best friend.
In another world, Hide still doesn't push Kaneki for the truth. Instead, he pushes Touka.
