"What are these kurses and what do we have to do?" Azuki asked, tilting her head. "If people want to play this game, then it can't be all that bad, right?"

"Not at all~!" Tsutomu smiled, but with his nature, who knew if he was being sarcastic or genuine. "You'll have fun~ Most people do enjoy it, don't they?"

"W-What?!" Ethan gasped, feeling himself getting more and more squished underneath. Anything, he'd endure anything than to be a lead role. All that responsibility and expectations, he could already feel the weight building in his chest. "Pass! Pass it to anyone else! Anyone but me!"

Azuki tilted her head and gave Ethan a peculiar look. This person would be the main character? She didn't expect that sort of personality from someone who would lead everyone.

She stepped towards him and crouched down so she could be more to his level. She could understand what it was like not wanting to be in a lead role. She didn't want to be treasurer in the student council at first since it would be too much work and responsibility, but if she didn't sign up, she wouldn't have had so much fun with all her friends.

She gave him a friendly smile. "Playing a lead roll is kinda scary, especially when you don't know anyone, but it'll be fun, trust me!" She encouraged, her eyes sparkling as she started to go off topic. "You'll be just like the lead in a manga!!! Fighting enemies with your nakama and saving the day, wouldn't that be the coolest thing ever?!?! YOU CAN EVEN GET YOUR OWN THEME SONG AND HAREM IF YOU WANTED!!!!!"


Ethan lost Azuki after her first sentence, but it wasn't because she started going off into her own world. It was because she was just so... so beautiful. Her eyes as blue as the ocean and her long, flowing, blond hair that was like the morning sun.

He blushed and looked away. He couldn't look at her. He wasn't worthy. Dirt like him? Why would a girl like her would ever want to talk to a failure like him? Was she secretly mocking him? Did she pity him? His head was filling with pessimistic thoughts but his eyes wandered back to her. He couldn't stop looking at her. He couldn't speak. He was absolutely mesmerized by her beauty.

Lettie explained the rules to them now that Ethan was here.

"Hnn, I see." Ruku nodded his head, soaking the information up.

"Also, if you guys from the other world start feeling strange or sickly soon... don't worry about that!" Lettie smiled, letting out vague information as usual.

"Wait, what do you mean by that―"

"Let's leave this joint!" Lily suddenly yelled out, stomping her short legs onto the ground."I wanna find my Haku-chan!" She got all up into Tsutomu's face. "You've been here awhile, right? Heard of Haku-chan? Haku Kiiro? Blonde, amber eyes, small pony-tail, delicious body."

"Delicious!?" Mai shot a weirded out look at Lily.

"Yeah, I licked him once in his sleep when I sedated him, ehe." Lily blushed and hid her face in her hands.

"Someone, call the police." Ruku wanted to get as far away as possible from Lily.

"But, you've been chosen, Ethan!" Lettie sulked. "Fine! Until you accept your role, every vital piece of information and the lounge is locked!" Lettie cried out as everyone was suddenly pushed out of the lounge and into the main entrance room.

"Lettie!" Nura called out, but she didn't answer. "Ugh, fine be that way." Nura popped on over to Tsutomu. "You've been playing this game for awhile, right? And you know your way around here, so could you show us around? I would ask... him." He looked back to the blushing Ethan and felt slightly irritated. "But he's kinda..."

"You could have asked me, I did grow up here..." Mai mumbled, feeling a bit hurt that she was tossed to the side like that.

"Uwahh~ You licked him in his sleep? We have a dangerous one over here!" Tsutomu looked scared and flustered, but his tone of voice didn't fit his actions at all. It was like he wasn't affected by what she said at all. "But you had to sedate him to do that? That's a pretty dirty trick right there! But wouldn't it be more fun to do it when he's conscious?"

"Mmm~ Haku Kiiro. Sorry! Doesn't ring a bell, not a lot of people come talk to me anyway. I'm a bit of an outcast, kinda saddening, right?" He gave a hurt expression but again, his voice didn't match up to being genuinely hurt at all. They were just slight changes to fit the mood, but over all, he could still be talking about the weather if no one was listening carefully.


Ethan was frozen. He was glad that Lettie was finally off of him, but now he felt even worse. He wasn't burdened with the potential to do good or bad, now he was just bad. He was holding them down because he couldn't say yes. He still couldn't say yes. He was being a burden and he could already hear it in his head: they would say it behind his back at first. And then slowly, the more he messed up... the more he would be confronted with his failures. It was inevitable. Him failing was inevitable.

He needed to run. Right now. Every moment with these people was a moment more he would be faced with this burden. He was about to take off when he heard her voice again.


"Ethan...san?" She tilted her head. The name wasn't Japanese, he probably wasn't Japanese, would he still mind he honorifics? She'll ask later.

"You should join our group!!! Maybe if you get closer with the people you'll be working with, you might find it easier to open up to be main character!" Azuki suggested.


Ethan started to sweat like crazy. Why was this girl still talking to him, even though he messed up? No, more importantly, she gave him a choice. He didn't have to be in their group. Yes, this was it. This was the perfect opportunity. He could run now. Run as far away from everyone as possible.

He opened his mouth to make an excuse. Any would do, but nothing would come out. Nothing would come out because when he looked at her, his brain became fuzzy. The way her hair fell when she crooked her neck to the side or the way her eyes fell on his with curiosity. Everything about her just amazed him and he couldn't even make a sound when he's face to face with that.

So, he just ran. Bolted straight out of there like the damn coward he is.


Azuki watched him run. She was a little hurt and shuffled her feet. "Was it something I said...?"

"Ehhh~ There's not much around here. But if you're planning to make yourself at home~~~ Sure! Why not, I have time to blow." He scooted over to Mai and brought their shoulders together. "How about we both do it? The more the merrier, right?"

"It's called being in love!" Lily protested. "Haven't you ever felt that!? I just want him to be mine! If any other girl happen to even touch him, yet alone exchange lips with him, I would skewer her." She warned every girl there, not knowing what Haku had done to Azuki already.

"Crazy in love..." Nura mumbled, almost bursting out into song and singing Beyonce's hit single.

"Are you okay―" Ruku reached out for Ethan upon seeing how pale and nervous he looked. "Why does everyone keep cutting me off today?" He watched as Ethan ran. He ran really fast, and that made him surprised. "He's kinda... not strong looking, so why does he...?"

"Sylvians are born naturally strong. Adept to doing labour work." Mai said as she played with her pigtails. She blushed at the sudden contact with Tsutomu. It was weird. Were people from the other world always so touchy-feely? But then again, she did grab Ruku's hand without much thought. But that was because that was Ruku. And she seen Ruku naked before.... With that thought, all embarrassment she felt with the opposite sex was flushed down the toilet. She had seen a ding-a-ling, why would she get so worked up by simple shoulder touch.

"Sure, do you know your way to the nearest town? I'm a bit rusty, but I think I can pick it up from there." She smiled.

"We need to look for Ethan." Nura said. He wasn't too fond of Ethan for some reason, but his strong sense of justice wouldn't allow him to leave a poor, clearly troubled boy alone.

"Maybe being here could jog Ruku's memory..." Mai added.

"Jog?"

"I kinda have amnesia...I have no idea how I got onto the floating island up there." Ruku shrugged his shoulders.

"Woah, that's rough buddy." Nura patted Ruku on the back.

"Awh, poor baby!" Lily said with sympathy in her voice and eyes. "It'll be okay!" She nuzzled his chest with her cheeks, which made him kind of uncomfortable.

"Ah!" Mai had a sudden occurrence and looked to both Lily and Azuki. "I need to tell you something very important... When we get into town, please cover at least your hair or your eyes."

"Haa?" Nura was starting to think Lily wasn't the only weird one.

"Don't judge me! Judge the other Sylvians! I've been away from them so long that I forgotten about their weird values! I see everyone for who they are and as equals..." Mai defended herself, remembering all those snuck up Sylvians thinking they were all superior and better than anyone else.

"I don't understand? Why do they need to hide their hair or eyes? Why just them?" Ruku's curiosity was pouring out again.

"You'll see..." Mai sighed. "Let's just get going, Tsutomu, please show the way the way."

"Of course I do! I have a girlfriend, remember~?" Tsutomu reminded. "But skewer? Uwahhhh~ you're one scary girl, Lily-chan!" He laughed but in his mind, skewering wouldn't be enough. No, not even a hammer to the head would be enough to relieve him of his anger if a certain someone kissed his precious Hotaru. A certain someone whose name is Momo.

"How am I going to cover my hair though?" Azuki asked. She was already trying to cover her hair with her hands, but even she knew that wouldn't obviously work. Her hair wasn't short like it was 3 years ago, it was long now and past her shoulders. She looked at the rubble around. Nothing was fitting that wouldn't be too obvious.

"D-Do I have to put dirt in my hair...?" Azuki quivered. She hoped the answer would be no. Dirt was icky.


"Ok~!" Tsutomu smiled. "We'll take the long route, how about that? We might find Ethan-kun along the way!" Tsutomu suggested as he took the lead and started walking.

"Don't be stupid." Nura scolded and took his jacket off without any second thoughts. "Use this." He walked off right away so she wouldn't have to see the pink tint in his cheeks.

"Oohh." Mai saw through Nura's feelings right away.

"?" And the curious Ruku didn't.

"What about me?" Lily protested. "I want a jacket too, onii-sama~"

Everyone pretty much ignored Lily and continued walking. "Yup, that's fine, it'll help me soak in the layout of the area." Mai followed closely behind Tsutomu.

"Thank you Nura-san!" Azuki smiled as she took his jacket. She fumbled with the material. Now what. She tried to wrap her hair around and use his jacket as an African head wrap, but she just didn't have enough skills to do so. So, she just gave up and put his jacket over her head and used it half to cover her hair and half to shield herself from the sun.

Tsutomu saw it too. He lifted an eyebrow. He was enjoying this, soaking up new information from people. New information that could or could not be useful. Who knew?

"Hmm~ How about we all have some bonding time~?" Tsutomu brought up, trying to strike a conversation. "How about this? Let's talk about the things we like! We might find some common ground with each other, you know?"

Nura was feeling slightly annoyed with the honorific '-san' they've known each other for roughly 3 years... He knew she also referred to her best friend as 'Hatsu-san', but he couldn't help it, he wanted to be special to her. Sometimes he even felt jealous of a dead woman because he knew he could never amount to her or overtake her place in Azuki's heart.

Mai didn't know what to expect from Tsutomu. She barely knew him. Sure, she barely knew everyone too, but Tsutomu felt way out of everyone's league. He seemed as if he experienced something the others haven't. She could sense something similar between Azuki and Nura. They looked perfectly normal, but the way they walked, the way their body moved... was different than her's. Mai was strong alright, but she didn't train any special technique. She just punched or kicked using her raw strength.

"Um, I like the sun!" Mai finally answered. Down on Sylvia's ground, the sky was blocked by thick red clouds. There was never any light, which explained why many residents were pale. It also explained why Mai was so tanned, since she got a bit too much sun up there.

"HAKU-CHAN OF COURSE!!!" Lily shouted out with glee.

"Cute things." Nura answered almost as instantly as Lily.

Ruku couldn't answer. He didn't know what he liked. He woefully looked to the rugged ground and kicked some dirt.

((Nura you don't need to take Hatsu's place, you have your own special place reserved in Azuki's heart. Right in the 2nd more traumatizing experience she ever had--))
((Blond hair like the morning sun Kimmie writes as Ethan never saw the morning sun. Uses jacket to shield Azuki from the sun Kimmie writes as there is barely any sun. Falls to the floor and cries))

"Anime and manga!!!" Azuki shot her hand up like she was in class.

"Uwah, all different answers? That's no good, we can't bond like this! Oh, I can't move on before I state what I like, huh? Obviously, I love my girlfriend, but besides that~ I like learning new things!" Tsutomu gave an answer that sounded like something a 3rd grader would say.

"Mmm, anime and manga though. I used to have a friend who was really into those kinds of things too."


Azuki's ears perked. "Do you mean..."

"Momo(-san)(-kun)?"

Azuki rushed over to Tsutomu's side and grabbed his hands. "FATE!!!" Her eyes glowed. "We were fated to be friends!!!!"

"Well we got one social link established!" Tsutomu laughed, allowing Azuki to spazz over him. "Come on! Anything else anyone wants to ask or share~? Not like we have anything else to do~"

You never know, maybe some really bright light was shining down on Azuki's head. Maybe it was the sunset? Maybe it was Nura--


"You knew Momo-chan too?" Nura blinked. The world really was a small place. It was probably unlikely that they both knew other people though. "He was sooo cute, much cuter than this thing over here." He smirked as he poked Azuki in the cheek.

"I like using an ax!" Lily smiled, swinging her hand around and pretending she was wielding an ax. "It's easy to cut human skin, so smooth and silky~~"

"How is she not in prison...?" Ruku stared at her with terror.

"I don't know..." She was responding to Tsutomu. "I have no idea how much in common our worlds have with each other." Mai said, actually not knowing what anime or manga was.

"We would know if we find Ethan and get Lettie to unlock all the information for us!" Nura said, trying to get everyone on focus.

"Tsutomu..." Ruku then said. "Where do you sleep in such a a wasteland like this?" He looked around, there was nothing but dry ground and dirt stretching far into the distance. "Also, what races are you?" He asked. He forgot every ethnicity there was, maybe he would be refreshed if everyone said what they were.

Azuki pouted as Nura poked her in the cheek. She couldn't deny it, Momo had a cute and fun personality. She remembered the times her, Cedric and Momo had together in The Organization and felt a little sad. She missed him.

"Momo-kun being cute? Ehhh~ I don't see it, maybe we have a different sense of what we think is cute. After all, I think Azuki-chan is cute."

"Huh...?" Azuki didn't expect that at all. "R...Really?"

"Yup! Really cute!"

Azuki's face turned bright red. She didn't know where to look, she couldn't look at his face anymore. She was embarrassed but at the same time, flattered. She was happy. Not a lot of people went up to her and complimented her like this. Compared to her sister, she didn't think she was all that attractive at all. But to hear someone so openly call her cute... she was happy. So, so very happy.

"T-Thank you...!" She smiled timidly. She couldn't help but brim with happiness right now.


"Ax, huh?" Tsutomu replied to Lily. "I like using hammers! Too bad I couldn't bring it when I died, I really liked that hammer too..." Tsutomu frowned.

"A house?" Tsutomu replied, not finding it odd that he was actually living comfortably in a post-apocalyptic world. "I find things here and there during my strolls and built it myself!"

In response to Ruku's question, he was about to answer 'human', but that wasn't correct. No, he wasn't human. No ever called him human. Instead, most people would call him... "A monster. More specifically, I'm full Japanese, but I can get by speaking other languages if you give me time to learn!"


Azuki was still internally fangirling over being called cute to answer.

"The only thing cute about, megane here is her boobs." Nura covered his mouth upon realizing what he just said. That was so perverted. He wouldn't normally say things like that with other people around, but maybe in private with Azuki since they were close enough to joke about things like that, but... He glanced to her giant breasts and suddenly felt shameless. Just kill me... sobs

"I think Azuki has a cute personality." Mai laughed. "You're really easy to talk to! Not many people have the ability to just draw people in like that."

"I agree, I guess?" Ruku furrowed his eyebrows, wanting to compliment people too, but didn't know how to, er remember how.

"Hold on, amnesia boy, no need to think so hard, your brain will explode!" Mai teased, sticking her tongue out playfully. "I'm pretty sure we get weapons later... I remember my brothers always carried the most bizarre weapons when they played the game."

"You built your own house!?" Nura exclaimed. He couldn't help but imagine a small shack at best, but a house? An actual house!???

"Japanese?" Ruku stared intently at Tsutomu. "Like when you told me that Japanese pronunciation of Esruk?" He then asked Mai.

"SHUSH! I told you not to speak her name." Mai scolded very loudly. "And yes, that. Does it ring a bell?"

"I'm not sure... But I can tell that you guys have Japanese names." He pointed to Nura, Tsutomu and Azuki. "But Lettie spoke she-who-must-not-be-named... why can't we?"

"You're too curious for your own good..." Mai sweatdropped.

"Can you guys speak Japanese to me?" Ruku suddenly inquired

"Sure...?" Nura shrugged. "Four-eye's boobs are actually like D-cup, can you believe that?" He suddenly spoke in a foreign language to Mai.

"...Really?" Ruku responded in the exact same language then walked over to Azuki and poked her chest. "Aaa! Amazing! They're really big!"

Mai's and Nura's mouths gaped open in surprised but for different reasons. "YOU CAN SPEAK JAPANESE!?" "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?"

"I guess so... I must have been bilingual or multilingual before I lost my memories... It just came back to me when he started speaking Japanese." Ruku nodded in awe. "Oh. I was just seeing if it really was D-cup." He answered simply to Nura.

Azuki snapped out of her own world after hearing Nura talk about her chest. She would have said something along the lines of 'Cute? Boobs can be cute? There can be boobs that aren't cute?' but the group continued to talk without her.

"Ehh~ I hope so! I feel much better with a weapon in my hand after all!" Tsutomu smiled. He turned to Nura and tilted his head, not understanding why he had such a response to what he just said. "If you don't believe me, we can all stay there for the night! I only have one bed and another spare for guests, so two of you have to make due with the ground~ Sorry!"

Azuki's face quickly turned red for a whole different reason once Ruku touched her chest. She immediately guarded her chest and wailed out in embarrassment. "I-I am a D-cup!!! PLEASE BELIEVE ME IT ISN'T FUN!!!! You can barely find bras in Japan for my size a-and you can't lie on your stomach because it hurts and clothing doesn't fit because the waist is fine but my chest is too big..." She started to cry.

"I-I can't believe someone just touched me like that, how can I get married now?!" She cried loudly.


"Awww~" Tsutomu rubbed her back, trying to comfort her. "Don't worry, Azuki-chan! I think you look cute, Mai-chan says you have a cute personality, and you have a body to die for, so I'm sure you'll find someone out there who will marry you!" He gave Nura and amusing glance before he continued. "Besides, me and my girlfriend did all sorts of things, and we aren't married yet!"

Azuki was drying her tears. Hearing Tsutomu compliment her made her feel a lot better about herself. "You really think so...?"

"Yup! I used to know someone who was just like you a long time ago, and she ended up with a beautiful daughter!" Tsutomu reassured.

Little did they know, he was talking about Hotaru's grandmother, who was stupid, ran in heartbreak into the streets, got raped, ended up freeloading and clinging onto the memory of romance she had for only a short amount of time. It was a horrible fate but heck, he didn't care, and he ended up being her granddaughter's girlfriend, so everything ended up ok in the end.


Azuki nodded with a smile. Her mind wandered and imagined herself with her brother and a cute child. She hoped she could have a happy family like that one day.

"Ahh, look who it is!" Tsutomu pointed at Ethan in a distance, huddling himself in the middle of a trash pile.

"Woah!" Nura's interest was perked immediately when Tsutomy mentioned he did all sorts of things with his girlfriend. He inched closer to Tsutomu, a serious look on his face. "Let's have a serious discussion about that later." He told Tsutomu in a hushed voice, wanting to know what he could do for Azuki. His face was pure with intention and a dirty thought didn't cross his mind.

"Ethan." Mai appeared right in front of Ethan's face as if she teleported, but in fact she didn't. She ran there really quickly, not bothering to mask her killer intent. "What'cha doing?" It was a harmless question with such an intimidating face. It was obvious Mai was a bit annoyed, there was even a red vein popping at the side of her head.

"Don't scare him!" Ruku called out, walking in leisure as he approached the poor boy.

"If that's the case then, I'll―"

"No!" Nura grabbed onto the back of Lily's collar, making her squirm in protest. "You're much scarier." Nura had a face of death, 3 black lines running down his face.

"Ethan! Let's talk." Ruku suggested. "We've been bonding for a bit before running into you and it's going kinda... okay." He scratched the back of his head. He didn't understand what was bad or good, so had decided to stay with the neutral. "Tell us about yourself? What do you like?"

"Miss sunshine, you're especially good at pep talks." Nura gave Azuki a suggestive smirk. "How about try it on home boy here?"

"Sure!" Tsutomu smiled agreed to Nura's request. Little did he know, his brain was filled with least most innocent things.

Ethan almost screamed once Mai was in front of him. He fell to the ground and crawled backwards, hoping to get more space between the two. He was shaking and his instincts were yelling at him to run. Even though Ruku's words were more welcoming and almost persuaded him to stay, the girl in front of him was an absolute danger he had to run from.

Azuki smiled and put her hand to the air. "Don't worry, I'LL GET TO HIM!!!" She said with determination. Her eyes sparkled as she felt like she was student council president again, trying to help her little underclassmen who needed her.

"ETHAN-SAN!!!!" Azuki was running at him with full speed, but forgot she had Nura's jacket on her head, so she ended up turning around to get it. Once she did, she was too preoccupied trying to spread it out on her head again that she tripped and fell on her feet.


Ethan was mesmerized by Azuki once again. That voice just music to his ears and when Azuki lost the jacket and he momentarily got a glimpse of her golden hair against the wind, he was pretty sure she was an angel in the flesh. He snapped out of his thoughts once he saw her fall. He hoped they would be distracted by her, so he plopped up on his legs, ready to run again when he heard another voice calling after him.

"E-than-san~" Tsutomu was taking his time walking towards him. He opened his eyes just slightly and made eye contact with the boy.

"You're not going anywhere."


It was right when Ethan looked into his eyes that he felt a surge of pain all over his body. It was short, and lasted for less than a second, but it was pain. And he definitely felt it. He fell back on the ground, completely frozen in fear and looked up at Tsutomu who closed his eyes and smiled like he didn't do a thing.

"There's no reason to be afraid of us! We just want to be your friends~ I'm sure you'd love to be our friends too, isn't that right?"

"T-THAT'S RIGHT!!!!" Azuki got back up on feet and ran to him with dirt on her forehead and cheeks. "We just want to be your friends! So don't worry, we won't hurt you!" She crouched down by his side. "Do you want to be our friend too?"

Ethan knew that wouldn't be the case, but he couldn't help but feel himself be more calmer after hearing her voice. He felt himself getting lost in her all over again and couldn't say another word.
