After a few minutes Hikari wakes up and looks next to her. "You're up! Are you alright? You just passed out...." She had a few questions about how he had gotten the bear to leave, but first she had to make sure he was alright. The questions could wait. He'd been so nice to her to save her twice, even though they didn't even know each other's names. He could've just left her, but he'd decided to help her both of those times. People rarely did things like that for her. It was usually her doing it for them, but this time it was the other way around....

Ryouta is shocked to see how much energy the girl has after just waking up. He has to practically drag himself into a sitting position his muscles are so sore, but he does manage to smile at the girl. Ordinarily he is so terrified of being around people that he cannot even look them in the eye, never mind talk to them, but for some reason this girl makes him feel calm and relaxed. He gives a small nod and replies, "Y-yes....I'm alright....A-are you...o-okay...?" His voice is so weak and stammering that it makes him feel self-conscious; his cheeks turn a light shade of pink and he has to look away.

"Yeah, I'm alright. A bit tired, but alright." Hikari was a bit worried about how weak his voice sounded and the fact that he seemed to have had to drag himself to sit up, but he seemed ok besides that. At least he was unharmed. Nobody had really worried about if she was ok or not before- whenever she helped someone, they just said thanks and walked off. To her it seemed a bit selfish of them not to care, but she wasn't mad at them. She understood if they were happy to be safe and unharmed and forgot some things. But this boy was different. He cared about her, and it felt good to know someone cared about her.

When the girl announces that she is okay, Ryouta smiles softly and nods. He was glad that she was unharmed. While still trying to hide his blushing face from her he looks over at her, just to make sure. He could sense that her pulse was quite weak but not dangerously so; was she just naturally frail and weak, he wondered? But that would be rude to ask, he thought. He had no idea how to communicate with people. All of his life he had been bullied: By his parents, his older siblings, the kids at school...he never had a peaceful moment around humans. And yet, with this girl, who was so nice and kind to him, he was quite comfortable. For the first time his life he wished that he had some form of social skills so he could communicate with this girl. "What's a normal way to start a conversation?" And then he realized...attempting to mask his shyness and ineptitude, and failing miserably Ryouta asks, "U-um.....w-would it be o-okay if I asked for your n-n-name....?"

The boy obviously didn't have very good social skills, but she was fine with that. She found that she could have a decent conversation with just about anyone. "My name's Hikari. May I ask what yours is?" It was actually quite rude of her not to have asked before. Maybe they could learn a little bit about each other as they talked- they were still resting anyways, so why not? Hikari hoped that they could become good friends; having a friend who cared about her like he did would be nice.

Ryouta smiles when the girl introduces herself. "Hikari...a warm light....I like that name...." He blushes deeply when he realizes that he just said that out loud and has to look away for a bit. He almost didn't notice that she had asked for his name, but once he does he responds in that same meek voice, "R-Ryouta....th-that's my n-name...." He could not even remember the last time he had had to introduce himself to anyone, not since he was forced to introduce himself in front of the class at school. He had no friends, and his family hated him, so he rarely ever spoke. It was nice, chatting with this girl while they rested. "Maybe...I've finally found a friend?" He thinks to himself.

Hikari blushes a bit at his comment on her name, but quickly recomposes herself. "Ryouta, eh? That's a nice name." Hikari smiles. It was nice to just sit down and talk with someone every once in a while. He didn't seem to talk very much; she wondered how many friends he had. 'What am I thinking? That's a very rude question!' she thought, and pushed that curiosity away. However, she did know that he had at least one friend: her.
Posted 8/17/15
Ryouta is still smiling, but his eyes narrow a bit at her comment. "I...I don't really like my name..." He mutters. However, he shakes his head; he is actually talking with someone who seems like a genuinely nice human being and he does not want to ruin it with his negativity. This girl...she was a bit strange. Very nice and gentle, he could tell that by the way she interacted with that poor bunny, but also very strange. If any other person had seen what he had done to that bear, they would have called him a "devil" or a "monster" and run away from him. But not Hikari, she'd stayed with him. "A-are you lost....? Your p-parents must be worried about you....?" He asks. What was a little girl even doing alone in the woods, he wondered?

"O-oh... I, well..." The truth was, Hikari had always been alone. She'd been born weak, and when she was 5, the age where she had enough intelligence to do quite a few things, she'd been abandoned in this meadow. To this day she still wondered how she'd managed to survive- it hadn't been easy, she knew that for sure. Sometimes she ventured into the city but she usually stayed in here. "I-I'm alone... I live in this meadow and I don't have parents...." Hikari always wondered why she hadn't been abandoned as a baby but instead at an age where she had a chance of survival. 'I guess some people are a bit forgiving', she thought.

Ryouta's eyes widen in shock when he hears Hikari say this. He felt so stupid and insensitive for bringing up such a sad topic and asking that rude question. He wants to change the subject right away, but he has no idea how he could. Would it just be like dismissing everything she said as unimportant, or that he didn't care? His heart was pounding furiously in his chest, which was tightening by the moment. "Stupid! Stupid! Stupid!" He thinks to himself, fearful that he had upset Hikari. Before he even realizes it, a steady stream of tears is rolling down his cheeks. "I-I'm sorry....." he whispers.

"N-no! It's fine, really! Please don't cry...." He hadn't hurt her feelings or anything, so she didn't want him to be upset. She'd just met him too! She felt like an idiot now. He couldn't have possibly known her past, plus she was used to being asked this sort of question. "Don't worry about it, you didn't make me upset or anything...." She couldn't stand to see him crying like this, especially when he hadn't done anything.
Posted 8/17/15
Ryouta tries to stop the tears from flowing, sniffling a bit. He hated how weak he was, how even the tiniest thing could upset him this much. People were always telling him how weak he was. "Act more like a boy!" "You cry too much!" He had heard that all his life. He nods and wipes the tears away with the back of his hand, trying to steady his breathing. "S-sorry....I c-cry too easily...." He mumbles. "U-um...." he searches for the right words, but he has nothing. "Y-you live here....? But I'm...I'm always here.....h-how come I've never seen you before....?"

"Well, I usually hide most of the time, because there's all of the other bigger animals that could hurt me...." Now that she thought about it, maybe she was so weak because she didn't eat any meat? She couldn't bring herself to kill any of the animals so she'd been living off of berries for the past 10 years. But now wasn't the time to think about that. She'd have plenty of time to think about her life later. "I was probably either hiding or asleep when you were here... I hide from any sounds of heavier footsteps because they're either animals or hunters." She hated hunters. They killed all those poor, innocent animals for their own gain, plus if they found her they'd probably take her with them, and she didn't want to see what would happen then. Rarely did she ever interact with anyone else, and it was usually only to save a person who wandered into the wrong part of the meadow at the wrong time.

Ryouta listens to Hikari's explanation and nods. "Th-that makes sense..." He says, not sure what else to say. He wanted to ask her why she had to live in the forest rather than with her family, but he was so scared of upsetting her that he dared not ask another rude question. Then again, if given the choice, he would love to live in this beautiful forest, far away from the noise of the city. But how was she able to survive out here for so long? What did she eat? Where did she hide when it rained or snowed? So many questions, but he did not want to ask any of them. But there is one question that he wanted to ask her, and hopefully it would not upset her too much. He looks her in the eye and asks, "D-do....do you hear them, too?"

"Hear what?" As soon as she said it, she regretted it. 'Stupid! That was so insensitive!' she thought, hoping that she hadn't upsetted or offended him. He'd already started crying once, she didn't want to hurt his feelings in any way again. "I mean, um, I need to know what you're talking about so that I can answer properly...." 'Idiot! You're just making it worse!', she thought, mentally scolding herself again. She decided to shut up and let Ryouta explain.
