"So I was thinking of a thing I could do."
"A thing /you/ could do?"
Machi Ono is sitting alone in the basement of the Gullwing Cafe, as she is wont to do. There are some papers on a table that she's swept to one side, and a mirror nobody knows she borrowed without asking stood in front of her.
"Yeah, yeah. Watch this."
Machi feels her eyes blur for a moment, and she blinks them shut and open. She feels a little more laid-back, and her eyes have changed from their usual green to a stunning red. She makes an appreciative coo.
"Hehe, cool, huh? I figured out how to do it a couple hours ago. I figured... well, you know a lot of people kinda don't know which of us is talking, sometimes? Well I figured we could do this!"
Her eyes change from one colour to another with every eyeblink.
"I think we look pretty cool with red eyes," Machi says.
"Yeah, but the classic green can't be beat," the Spider says.
"Let's give it a try," Machi says, her eyes settling back to green. "Maybe it'll help people. We won't have to explain ourselves all the time."
"Yeah, it was getting a little tiresome."
Machi thinks a little, and slowly reaches her arms around... yeah, she's hugging herself. "Etsu, Kimi and Jun could always tell us apart."
"Yeah, I know."
"I miss them."
The two look at the discarded papers in the corner of the table one last time; discarded printouts on what her parents have been doing ever since she disappeared. The prognosis is grim.
"...guess really all we've got is one another, now."
