To my dearest sisters, Mikako and Yukariko


I’m sorry for leaving the mansion without you, please forgive me. I can’t living there anymore, no matter how many times I tried to insist you leave with me. You wouldn’t listen so that’s why I have no choice but to leave you behind, I know it’s hard for a 9 year old girl to survive alone on the streets but I’ll try my best to live happily. So take care of Yukariko for me. Until we meet again. 


From your sister

Mikako: You’re right. She may be spoil, childish and a little selfish but she’s still my sister. *Sobbing*

Kurumi: Mika…

Mikako: To be honest, I wanted to leave too. Every time I turned her down is because I’m not ready to survive alone yet. I just need more time but I never thought she would leave us like that. *Crying* 

Kurumi: *Hugs Mikako* Don’t cry…

Mikako: *Crying* 

Kurumi: Why don’t you find your sister.

Mikako: But how? Tokyo is huge, I don’t even know where she is now.

Kurumi; Hang out fliers around the city. 

Mikako: I don’t think she’ll like that, I bet  she’ll definitely won’t show herself up in the city.

Kurumi: So what’s the next plan?

Mikako: I’ll look for her at the playground. She might be playing with the other kids.

Kurumi: Good idea! 

Mikako: I’ll look for her now! Bye! *Runs downstairs* 

Kurumi: Good luck! 

Mikako: “Yuuko, wait for me. I definitely find you then I’ll make everything up to you and we’ll definitely leave that mansion.”
