ãWhen I woke up, Rin had already slipped out of bed and I was the only one in the futon.
ãAs I headed for the living room, sighing, I could not only smell the food, but also hear voices talking.
ãI thought it might be a phone call, but I could also hear someone other than Rin. Thinking it might be a visitor, I opened the living room door.
'Good morning. Is someone here?
'Good morning. I know you too.'
ãIt seemed that Rin-chan and her visitor were having a conversation at the table, and I was in a position to see them.
ãBlonde hair, blue eyes. A very beautiful girl with an impressive western look.
ãThere were some differences in height and other details, but there was no doubt that she looked familiar.
ãAccording to Rin, she's a girl I know, and I'm sure she's a girl I know.
'Could it be you, Toka-chan?
'Yes!ãIt's been a while, Nana-sama.
ãThe girl, Toka-chan, said so with a smile like a flower.
ãHer name is Takashou Touka. As you can see from her name, she is a relative of Rin's and a cousin of hers.
ãShe is the daughter of Rin-chan's uncle and her mother is English.
ãShe has a very Japanese appearance due to her mother's influence, but she was born and raised in Japan.
ãWe used to play together a lot since I was little, and especially since Rin-chan loved me a lot, I naturally became friends with her.
ãWe used to play together until about the middle of junior high school.
'Wow, you've grown up. You were smaller than me when I met you before.
'I'm embarrassed to say that I've only grown taller .......'
'That's not true, you look cool.'
ãI felt he was big even when he was sitting, but he was even bigger when he was standing. He's probably well over six feet tall.
ãHis arms and legs are long and he is tall. Her modesty also accentuates her beauty.
ãShe is more than a head taller than me, so it is almost as if I am looking up at her.
'You haven't changed at all, Nana-sama.
'Nana has been like that for the past ten years. It's as if time has stopped.
'I think the two of you have grown up too much. ......'
ãWe talk about trivial things. It's been a long time since we've seen each other, and even though her appearance has changed a lot, she's still the Toka I know.
'So, why are you here so early in the morning?
'I'm here to see my sister Nana. Sister Lin informed me that you're here.
'For me?ãI'm flattered, but why?
ãI can't think of any particular reason why Toka-chan would want to see me, let alone if she had business with Rin.
ãThat's what I thought I was saying, but Tooka-chan froze like a stone when she heard my words.
ãI waved my hand in front of her, but she didn't respond. I wonder what's going on all of a sudden.
'Hey, Lin ......, Nana is ......'.
'Okay, okay, I know you're in shock, so don't cry. You're lucky you haven't been forgotten.'
ãIn the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at our own web site.
'Nana ......, how long has it been since you've seen Touki?
'Since middle school, so ......6 about seven years?'
ãI thought back to the time when I couldn't even afford to hang out with anyone because of everything that had happened since my parents died in an accident.
ãThat's when I was so exhausted that I couldn't even hear Rin's words.
ãSince I couldn't even stay with Rin properly, I think I naturally lost my relationship with Toka.
'In case you didn't know, it was rumored in your hometown that you had disappeared.ãAfter you moved to your aunt's place, it was very difficult for Toki to cry out that Nana died.
'Wait, Lin, don't say that!
'Oh, you're lying.
ãTooka-chan, who clung to Rin-chan in embarrassment, completely forgot to use honorifics for the outside world and was in a panic.
ãIt's been a long time since I've felt this sensation of being a bit cool and then seeing the skin come off.
ãOriginally, she never used honorifics in front of us.
ãOn the other hand, she always spoke respectfully in other situations.
ãAnyway, she disappeared. Thinking back, I might have disappeared without saying a word to anyone except Rin-chan and her parents.
ãI went to the graduation ceremony, but ...... the only contact numbers I have on my cell phone are those of Rin-chan, my former employer, and the temp agency.
ãSo, it is possible that the theory of my disappearance itself may occur, but.
'Rin-chan, you didn't tell her anything?
'No. It was fun.'
'No, no. I don't blame you because it was my fault, but ...... I see. Sorry, Tooka. You came to check if I'm alive.'
ãI had no right to blame Rin for saying that, and I apologized to Toka-chan.
ãI'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who's a bit of a jerk.
'That's not what I meant ......, that's what I meant. Why don't we exchange contact information so that this kind of thing doesn't happen in the future?
ãI didn't register with the people at my part-time job because they were strangers, but Toka-chan is like family to me.
ãNow that I've met her again, I should at least register her contact information.
ãWith this in mind, I entrusted Toca-chan with a cell phone that had been sitting in a corner of my room for several generations.
ãAt any rate, she hasn't changed it in eight years, so it's quite a rare thing in view of the ever-evolving cell phones.
ãI guess she is used to it. After a quick exchange of contact information, she returned the device to me in a few seconds.
'Uhehe, Nana's contact information: ......'
'Light, you're drooling.'
'No way, ...... you're not drooling!
'I told you before you drooled. I know you're excited, but you need to be a little tighter.
ãI don't know why, but it brings back memories of seeing Toka-chan being berated by Rin-chan.
ãI'm not sure why, but I miss seeing Toka-chan giving Rin-chan a hard time for being a big sister. .......
ãI remembered that Toka-chan, who was the most important one, also admired Rin-chan and they seemed to be very close sisters.
'Well, we may have a lot to talk about, but for now, let's have dinner. We need to finalize our plans for today.
'I didn't invite you here for no reason, did I?
ãRin said, and sighed with a dumbfounded expression.
'Nana, I'm talking about the WLO.
'Oh, I see. Do you play ...... too, Toka-chan?'
'Of course I'm doing it, the light is a streamer too. I make him do the WLO.'
'Rin makes you do it.
ãIt's important to note that she didn't say that they were working together.
'Light is in the first group, but he doesn't have as much time as I do, so he's still in the fourth city (Fierce), right?
'No, I'm still busy with university, so I'm exploring the area around the third city (Trillia).'
'Oh, then you're close to me too.
ãI'm in the second town (Dualis), so it seems that Toka-chan is in a position to catch up with me if I run through one town.
'Light, don't you want to collaborate with Nana?
'I'd love to!
'Dualis by noon. Can you do it?'
'Yes, I can!ãI'll rent the room next door!
'Okay, fine. Just come back once before midnight.'
'Okay!ãNana, excuse me for meeting you so soon.
