Several days has passed since the victory at Sarca and the tragedy at Arteim. The capital is temporarily moved to the city of Barchen near the Tirus River on the western side of Arandel. The students are currently staying at the fortress of Barchen while the reconstruction of Arteim is ongoing.

They still remember the horrible scene they saw in Arteim, but little by little their trauma is alleviated.

At first, they tried to hold a memorial for Ren, but apparently, the kingdom of Arandel doesn't hold memorials for those who died on the battlefield. It is a strange custom, but they have no choice but to follow and to live like it never happened.

While the other students are currently undergoing a stress debriefing session under Charia, Kai and James are on the fortress' terrace while talking with each other.

"Hey, I'm worried about Karen. She hasn't eaten anything since yesterday." James said in worry.

"The trauma is still in her mind, that's why she holed up herself in Rin's room." Kai replied.

"Can we do something for her?" James asked.

"No, I think. The girls always visit Rin's room to take care of Karen. They said since three days ago, she didn't talked." Kai said in a sad tone.

James thought of something for a while. Then he looked at Kai.

"Kai, do you know the relationship between Karen and Ren?"

"I don't know. Ren is a nice person, but the two of them didn't talked that much at school, I think. Though, the three of them, including Rin are often teased for their names." Kai answered James' question.

"Come to think of it, their names really rhyme, huh?" James said while being amazed.

While they're talking, they saw Rin coming out of the door that leads to the terrace and walked near them.

"Rin, how's she?" James asked.

Rin looked at the two of them.

"She finally ate something, don't worry. She also talked to me. About Ren, that is." She said.

"What did she said?" Kai also asked.

"It's girls talk, so I won't tell any important details." She said while sticking out her tongue.

"Is that so, sorry." Kai apologized.

Rin leaned her body against the wall.

"It's okay. What's important is that, she is starting to cope with the situation." Rin said calmly.

"How about you, Rin?" James asked again.

"W-What about me?" Rin asked in surprise.

"You acted like you didn't care with what happened to Ren." James said in a serious tone.

"'re wrong." Rin replied.

"Is that so, I thought that you will be affected the most when Ren disappeared..." James continued to speak.

"W-What are you saying? I'm affected, you know?!" She said while her body trembled and her eyes looking at the floor.

"Ren is your childhood friend, right? It is just unnatural for me to think that his best friend doesn't seem to be sad about--"

Rin slapped James' cheek with her hand. As her body trembled, she looked angrily at James while tears flow from her eyes.

"Don't...say things like you know what I feel!!!"

She shouted at James before she walked away.

When she closed the door forcefully, James just looked at the door while touching his cheek that became red.

"I just said what I think is true. Right, Kai?" James asked Kai who fell silent because of Rin.

Kai, on the other hand, just placed his hand on his forehead in dismay.

Rin walked on the corridor towards her room.

"They won't understand my feelings..." She said to herself while wiping the tears on her cheeks.

When she reached the door of her room, she stopped moving as she her hand rested on the doorknob.

(Ren, you idiot!) She said on her mind.

When she opened the door, she noticed that Karen is not inside her room.

"Looks like she finally returned to her room..." She said while looking at her room.

She threw herself to her bed as she changed her clothes into a black negligee and undone the hair string that tied her hair into a ponytail. The sun's still up, but for some reason she decided to sleep early.

She hugged a body-sized pillow as she lie down on her bed. In reality, she can't sleep, because she thinks of her childhood friend.

"Ren, you stupid idiot pervert! Where did you go? We're worried because of you, you know?" Rin said while 'talking' to her pillow.

"Because of you, Karen felt depressed. How can you take responsibility for that?" She said angrily to the pillow, thinking that it's her childhood friend that she's talking to.

Of course, the pillow won't answer.

"You also didn't said 'good luck' to me before we traveled to Sarca! You're really an insensitive freak aren't you, Ren?"

She punched and kicked her pillow while still hugging it. She stopped attacking the pillow after a few minutes.

"...Most of all, you disappeared without hearing out my feelings..." She said as she hugged the pillow tighter.

"Ren, I know you're still alive, so...if we meet again, I'll be more honest with my feelings..."

She paused for a while.

"...If we meet again, I'll punch you in the face! I'll kick that part of yours as payment for your disappearance!"

Out of anger, she threw the pillow upwards.

"I'll make sure'll never leave me again." She said in a sweet voice while feeling embarrassed as she catch the pillow as it fall.

While talking to her pillow, drowsiness attacked her senses, and she closed her eyes to sleep after experiencing an emotional roller coaster because of her childhood friend.
