"How about Touko-chan?"
In Yumi's brain, Yoshino-san was yelling the seventh "Stupid."
However, the words had come out of her mouth, so she couldn't do a thing.
Sachiko-sama repeated with a little startle. At that time, Yumi realized
something, and gave herself the eighth "Stupid" in her heart.
What was the point of doing to Sachiko-sama the same thing that Sachiko-sama
had once done to her? Now it would look as if Yumi was exceedingly conscious
"She is no good."
Before long, Sachiko-sama replied.
Yumi probed deeper. It was all right; Sachiko-sama didn't look like
she would spew fire for the time being.
"In July she is going to Canada on a trip with her parents."
"It is better for us not to invite her then."
A summering in Japan or a vacation overseas. No matter how much Touko-chan
admired Sachiko-sama, putting the two choices on a scale, Touko-chan
surely would choose to go overseas.
At least the situation Yoshino had scolded to Yumi on could be avoided.
Yumi gave a sigh of relief and looked at Sachiko-sama, to find a calm
face that showed no emotions.
It looked as if Sachiko-sama was in deep thoughts, and took no notice
even when Yumi was staring at her.
It would be easy to ask Sachiko-sama what she was thinking about, but
if Yumi raised the question, would she be intruding Sachiko-sama's time?
Yumi ended up sinking into deep thoughts as well.
Finally, Sachiko-sama felt Yumi's stare and turned to her. Yumi plucked
up the courage and asked.
"Onee-sama, do you feel uneasy to be just with me?"
"How can that ever be? How did you come a conclusion so wide off
Sachiko-sama's words might be tough, but she was smiling.
"To me, it is already enough if just Yumi comes."
What a killer line.
--It is already enough if just Yumi comes.
Isn't it the line to drop down on Yumi's student notebook, and take
it everywhere without leaving her body for a moment?
"To me also, if just Onee-sama comes...!"
Suppressing her urge to hop up, Yumi confessed. Hey, the two of
us are feeling the same thing! This is just joy above anything.
But why would Sachiko-sama think of inviting other people?
Nevertheless, under such a powerful line of "if just Yumi comes,"
such trivial doubts became blurred right away, and soon vanished like
"So just the two of us is all right?"
Sachik-sama asked the same question again.
Yumi replied energetically.
With just the two of them, it should be fun regardless of the venue.
At that point of time, such was believed without a doubt.
"Did you hear that?"
"I heard that."
After the Read Rose sisters returned side by side, basking in the warm
sisterhood between them, two shadows appeared from within the dense
