    Summary

    Six remembers the past.

    Mori doesn't, because by the time she realizes her weird victorian-setting dreams are reincarnation induced there was already a fine system of decision making in the family to keep private things private. Most people probably don't think the way Six does, but when one of your dads can see the future based on intent to act, cautious decision making is an important life skill.

    Also, most people probably don't remember their past lives, but Six was just special like that.
