Momo takes Sachiko to play DDR, hoping that the opportunity to dance will cheer her friend up. There, they meet someone else who knew Anshi ... and Sayaka Miki's story is just a little bit different from the other ones Sachiko has heard.

Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 01:57:22 37371
During Spring Break, the Game Center Crown becomes one of the most hopping and todo places in all of Uminari, and certainly a great place for the kids from Seishou to come and hang out. Soon, they'll all be back to school, starting the new school year and facing new challenges, but for now it's time to be care free and eat pizza and milkshakes!

Today, a sleek black car pulls up to the front, and the driver gets out quickly and goes to the back. "Here you are, Hayakawa-sama, Akatsuki-sama," he says as he allows the two girls to exit the back. And those two girls look anything but the types to be riding with such well attending staff.

The first to exit is Sachiko Hayakawa: a seven year old with cinnamon hair and blue-green eyes. She's dressed, today, in a long black dress with more petticoats and lace tha any girl has a right to, over white tights and a pair of black and pink sneakers that look slightly out of place with the rest of the outfit. The big problem, though, is that Sachiko looks about as far from 'having fun' as a seven year old can be. She's not actively crying, but she looks like she's spent the last week buried in utter misery and sorrow. Which, of course, she has.

As she gets out of the car, Sachiko just sort-of stands there, staring at the crown uncertainly. She doesn't even get out of the road, right away. This prompts the driver to grimace just a little and tap her on the back, but it has no real effect. "Akatsuki-sama," he says, voice a little whisper, "Please take care of the young mistress. I don't know what's come over her, but it would not do for there to be another ... incident."
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 02:02:20 37374
    Sayaka has only recently come to enjoy hanging out at the Crown game center after a stressful day at school. She enjoys the music, the dark lights, the general feel of the place, even if it does distract her from her homework. Oh well! Who needs school, or homework, anyway!?

    And so she's happily playing on the DDR game machine, competing against the computer and having a swell time. Looks like she's catching onto many old Kyouko habits!
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 02:09:38 37378
As she steps out of the car, Momo looks around a little before adjusting the pink hairbow in her hair. She'd chose to wear an equally frilly, but more brightly coloured outfit of pink and white for the outing and stood as a contrast of brightness to the darkness of Sachiko in both expression and clothing.

Momo listened closely to the driver before nodding at him, and taking Sachiko's hand in her own. She glanced down both ways and then started tugging Sachiko across the street at a dead-run so any car that was being driven badly wouldn't flyby and get them before they made it.

Once inside of the Center, Momo looking around quizzically for the target she'd scoped out as the next attempt in S.U.D.S.R. (Super Under Delighted Sachiko's Recovery). Sachiko liked to dance and here at the Crown Game Center they had a few dancing games that she knoew of. She bee-lined towards them, not really noticing the one she was headed for was in use until she got there.
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 02:14:55 37379
Sachiko's eyes widen when Momo grabs her by the hand and starts running. Rather than allow herself to run with, the girl just leans back--which normally would result in digging in her heels, but Momo is a smart girl: she has put Sachiko in her heelies! This means Sachiko rolls right along with Momo, crossing the street at a quick pace until they reach the crown.

At least Sachiko isn't so far out of it as to let herself trip on the curb or the doorway. She steps over both quickly, then goes right back onto her heels, allowing Momo to do all the work of getting them to the dance machines.

Meanwhile, a little white furry creature with a fox-like tail, cat-like ears, and bunny-like flop hanging from his ears, appears atop the machine. Kyubey looks down on the trio of girls curiously, but doesn't say anything right away.

Sachiko puts her toes down when they reach the machine, then watches almost absently as Sayaka dances. She doesn't say anything, but she does seem at least a little bit more interested in it than she has any other piece of scenery Momo's put in front of her.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 02:22:50 37385
    "Oooh, darnit! I'm losing, I'm losing!" Sayaka grits her teeth as she enters level 6! It's the furthest she's ever gone in this game and it's crazier than ever! Suddenly her feet are running away with her, nearly getting tangled up as she tries to keep up. The screen flashes red as she loses too many steps and finally the words 'GAME OVER!' are splashed across the screen!

    "Dammit! I lost! Great music though......!" it's then that she chances to glance up, and spies Kyubey of all creatures sitting casually atop the game machine. "Kyubey! What are you doing up there?" she frowns softly, but makes no move to attack him or the like. It's true that he was dishonest, or at least didnt tell her the whole truth when she made the wish, but she knew that wishes came with a price afterall.

    Then the two girls come towards the game and she steps aside with a smile, "Heh, go ahead! I need to find some more change!" still, she keeps a wary eye on Kyubey, wondering if he's targetting one of these two girls.
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 02:28:58 37387
Kyubey tilts its head at Sayaka, offering no emotional response whatsoever. "Hello, Sayaka Miki," it says in its typically cheerful tone of voice. "I'm here in case Sachiko Hayakawa decides to make a contract with me and become a Magical Girl!"

Sachiko glances at Momo briefly, then looks up to Sayaka. "You know the Kyubey?" she asks confusedly, then blinks again before looking up at Kyubey. "Hello, Kyubey," she says to him, then looks at the dance machine curiously. Toeing out of her heelies, she steps up onto the edge in just her tights and peers at the display. "How do you play?" she asks, looking to Sayaka. "Will you teach me?"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 02:34:08 37391
Momo stepped back from the game as Sachiko stepped up, watching her friend. She figured Sayaka would have to get up with her in order to teach her about it. Like any seven year old, it briefly bothered Momo that she'd planned to teach her friend about it but she was well-mannered and let an older girl take the wheel.

Kyubey though... Kyubey earned a wrathful glare from Momo. She hadn't forgotten his intrusion on more than one day with Sachiko. He was a menace to fun everywhere, almost as bad as Barney the Purple Dinosaur.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 02:39:10 37394
    Sayaka narrows her eyes at Kyubey. "It's been a while..But I dont regret the wish I made, even now.." She's not sure if Kyubey already knows that Madoka can 'cure' witches, or if he simply has decided she's not yet a global threat, given the limits to her power. Either way she decides not to bring it up.

    Then he says something that is almost expected. Aha, so it's one of these girls that Kyubey is after, just as she thought. But which one? As Sachiko steps up, she smiles and nods, stepping onto the empty panel next to her. "Sure! I can show you a couple of steps! Your first time, huh? It's a great game, gives you a good workout, and some snazzy songs to sing to!"

    She's vaguely aware of the sad aura surrounding this girl. She just seems sad somehow, and perhaps that's why Kyubey is here, to tempt her with a wish!

    "Oh, are you Sachiko Hawakawa-chan..? That name sounds kinda familiar, hmm.." There was someone else with that same last name, but at the moment, Sayaka cant quite remember who!? She stores that piece of info away for now, along with Kyubey, and decides to teach the girl some moves first. Glancing over her shoulder, she smiles apologetically to Momo.

    "Sorry! I'll just show her a few moves, then you can step in and continue my game if you like! I'm a bit beat afterall!" fumbling in her purse, Sayaka manages to find enough change and slips it in the coin slot, lighting up the player two control. "Alright! First, you gotta follow everything on the screen! See those four arrows on your foot pad? They're the same four directions on the screen! Just mimic the directions with your feet..Like this!"

    And as the first four arrows fall - down down right right, she mimics the directions on the pad - down down right right! "Got it?"
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 02:43:13 37395
Sachiko pulls a little purse off of her hip and pulls out a roll of coins--a full roll, all ready to go. These she offers to Sayaka, but the girl has her own, so she puts the roll away again and turns to watch as the game starts. "I've never played any video games before," Sachiko notes quietly. "An-chi said we didn't need video games to have fun." Probably because t hey didn't have the money for them.

Sachiko has to bend over to see the pad at her feet--her many-layered skirts make it hard to see them--but she does observe the four directional arrows curiously. Then she looks up at the game, back down at the pads, then up at the game again. As the arrows start to fall, she hops back with both feet on the down arrow. Hop. Hop. Then she hops to the right arrow. Hop. Hop. "Got it," she says, as the next arrows fall: left left, up up. Hop. Hop. Hop. Hop.
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 02:46:44 37399
Settling down on a waiting chair for the game, Momo watches Sachiko with a smile. This seems like progress is being made in S.U.D.S.R, and even though it might be a little bit it added good wood to the fire of Momo's hope that soon Sachiko would be back to normal.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 02:50:53 37401
    Sayaka smiles at the girls. They're both so young and kinda fragile looking to her eyes. Why would Kyubey be so cruel as to go after such young children? As if tempting girls her own age wasn't bad enough?? She nods at Sachiko and chuckles, "Me neither! I guess my friend Kyou-chan got me into them! But it's a good stress reliever, especially after a long day of school!"

    And then she mentions An...An..Anshi Hayakawa!? Aha, that was her name! "Anshi-san? Oh, is..Was she your..? Oh.." She swallows, "I'm so sorry. She was a good person. Didn't know her that well, but we did fight side by side against..." Sayaka shakes her head. She just met her, the girl must still be devastated. No point getting into that right now. Maybe that's why she's so sad. Maybe that's what Kyubey wants to tempt her with.

    Glancing back at the screen, she nods and smiles, "Yes, that's right! you're a fast learner! I'm Sayaka Miki by the way, nice to meet you both!" glancing over at Momo, she steps aside, "Do you want to continue? I could do with a break and a glass of water.."
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 02:57:34 37404
Sachiko continues following the steps with little hops. The beginner song is so simple she doesn't even really have to use both legs; she just hops from light to light, staring up at the screen with rapt attention. She doesn't even seem to really be paying attention to the world around her.

Not, that is, until Sayaka mentions having fought with Anshi. Sachiko's face turns decidedly sadder at the mention of fighting, but she doesn't say anything for a few more hops of the arrows.

She doesn't stay silent forever, though. "Walpurgy-not," she finishes for Sayaka. "You fought with her at Walpurgy-not. That's where Sky Jack-onee-san said she died. He said she sacrificed herself to make sure the Walpurgy-not was defeated, and then fell in the ocean and died."

Sachiko misses a hop. Her sad face turns angry briefly, but it fades almost immediately. She misses another hop, and gets angry again, then slams her fist on the screen. "Stop messing up!" she shrieks at it.'
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 03:04:11 37407
Momo reached out to grasp at Sachiko's fist, making a tutting sound like a brooding hen with her chick. "You'll break it, Sachiko. Don't hit it, it just does what it's made to do.". She stepped up as Sayaka stepped aside, bracing her feet apart.

After a moment though she turns around and smiles softly at Sayaka. "I'm Momo Akatsuki. Sachiko is my bestest friend ever. You knew Sachiko's Anya-neesama? Did you know my onee-sama too? Mei Akatsuki!". She figured if she could get her sister as the topic, or something else, she'd be able to lead it away from things that were upsetting Sachiko.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 03:07:34 37409
    Sayaka arches a brow as she notices Sachiko's face growing sadder at the mention of Anshi. And when she explains what Sky Jack told her about Anshi's death..Wow, is that the story they're telling everyone? But it certainly is better than the reality.

    Still, if she were to tell her what REALLY happened, this girl might be even more broken hearted...But she has a RIGHT to know! But perhaps, Sayaka will wait to tell her the truth another time, when she has had time to recover.

    Sayaka glances thoughtfully at Kyubey during all of this, attempting to speak to him telepathically, not wanting to upset Sachiko further. <You think she'll make a wish with you to bring her sister back..Dont you?> Well, she's pretty sure that would be the girl's greatest desire but..Would it be worth the sacrifice?

    "I'm sorry, Sachiko-chan, I should not have brought it up. You came here to enjoy your game so perhaps we should talk about that later..."

    Finally, Momo steps up and introduces herself. Sayaka smiles and nods, stepping off the dance floor to let her take her place. "Nice to meet you, Momo-chan!" she arches a brow at the mention of her sister, but draws a blank, "No sorry, I dont think I've seen her around before. I go to Infinity, she's probably a different school.."

    As for her question about Sachi's sister, she just nods slowly, hesitant to say anymore on that topic for now. "I guess as a Puella Magi, you can ask me anything you want, however, about Kyubey, about us.." she shrugs, ~About Anshi~ she wants to say but..
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 03:14:05 37410
Kyubey just stares back at Sayaka. "It's not up to me whether she will make a wish, and I cannot advise her on what to wish for," it says to her openly. "You know the rules, Sayaka Miki. All I am doing is offering her a contract."

Sachiko kicks the machine after a moment and steps back onto the side, glaring at it. She's breathing heavily, angrily. This is possibly more emotion than Momo has seen out of the girl since Miss White took her heart's egg. After a moment, Sachiko takes a deep breath, then closes her eyes, and her whole frame seems to sink a bit as she ereturns to the previous, depressed state she was in.

"I don't know what a Puella Magi is," she says as her turn times out. Reaching into her purse again, she pulls out the coins and offers them to Momo. "Kyubey says he will let me wish for anything I want," she says quietly.

"But Momo-chan says I should make my wish come true on my own," Sachiko continues. "And Sky Jack-onii-san says that if I make a wish I won't get what I want. But the Kyubey says I will get exactly what I wish for. I don't know what to do or who to believe anymore. But I don't want to make Momo-chan unhappy," she says, looking at her friend.

Then she turns to look at Sayaka. "Did An-chi make a wish? Do you know what she wished for?"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 03:23:15 37412
Taking the coins gently in her hand, Momo watches her friend compose herself with a small frown. She didn't compose herself to happiness or anything, Momo noted.

With a little sigh, Momo unrolled the coins and placed some of them into the machine as Sachiko spoke to Sayaka. She figured she'd try and figure out how to dance again while Sachiko discussed things. It'd been a long time since she came here with Mei last.

The game flicked across and Momo moved sloppily with it, still managing to get pretty close for someone just now coming back to the game after a length of time.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 03:33:13 37416
    Sayaka stares long and hard at Kyubey, and nods finally. "....Yes, I know. I just want to make sure she knows what she's getting herself into, should she choose to make that wish."

    Looking back at Sachiko as she kicks the machine, Sayaka frowns a bit, although she understands her frustration. "I like to play here when I'm feeling stressed too. It really helps to cheer me up.."

    But it seems too late for that. She smiles as she sees Momo continuing the game, "But I understand. You have a good friend to support and help you there, but..Not all wishes can be granted by yourself. Sometimes a wish can grant something impossible. A miracle.."

    With another sigh, Sayaka shakes her head slowly. "I'm sorry, I don't know what Anshi-san wished for. I dont think anyone but Kyubey knows the answer to that. however, I can tell you what I wished for and how that turned out."

    Well actually, Sayaka was only recently gaining her memory back one day at a time, but she had eaten enough memorybeans to understand the true nature of Puella, of Walpurgisnacht, and the sad ending of Anshi, as well as her own wish and the results of that.

    "I once had a massive crush on a young and talented boy, a boy I knew since I was a little kid, younger than the both of you, even." Sayaka briefly closes her eyes as she tries to remember everything that happened. Fortunately the memory is still fresh as if it had happened yesterday. "I never racked up the courage to tell him how I felt, but I gently encouraged him in his music. He's an extremely talented violinist who relies heavily on his hands to play."

    "But one day, there was an..Accident. No, not just an accident. We were attacked by a youma at a violin performance. He was badly injured trying to protect me, and he lost the use of his hands.." She frowns sadly at the memory, "I stayed at his side in the hospital for many days and weeks and months, but his condition never improved, not even the surgery. Nothing worked and it seemed like his dreams would be lost forever.."

    Again, Sayaka looks back to Kyubey, and smiles, "That's when I made my wish with Kyubey. The doctors told him to give up hoping, that only a 'miracle' could heal his hands. And so that's what I wished for. A miracle to heal him...And Kyubey granted me that miracle. Kyousuke-kun is now a famous and successful violinist. He is happy and living his dream, and I'm just glad I was able to help him. Even though he never knew the truth, even though he fell in love with another girl, still I found a way to move on...And I never regretted my wish, even though I now understand the price of that wish.."
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 03:46:38 37419
Sachiko watches Momo play the game, and for the first time she's able to see a little of the grace her friend has. This isn't a side of Momo she's seen before, and it's not one she's ever really thought about. But Sayaka's story isn't lost on the little girl; she manages to listen even as she watches.

"Price?" she asks, curiously, turning her head to regard Sayaka. "You mean the contract to be a magical girl? That doesn't seem like a very bad price. You just gotta fight against monsters and stuff, right?"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 03:48:47 37421
Momo stopped as the game ended, turning to look at her Sachiko and Sayaka with mild confusion and distress. She wasn't really sure what it was, but she didn't want Sachiko going and making a wish. Maybe deep down she just didn't want Sachiko to have to fight against anything.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 04:03:02 37425
    Sayaka nods, all serious now, "Yes, that's right.The contract. But dont be fooled. There's so much more to becoming a Puella Magi, than simply devoting yourself to fighting witches." She smirks, "But Kyubey can be a little sneaky and never tells you the entire truth. Becoming a Puella means that a soulgem is created, the source of your power, and also a container for your soul.."

    She briefly ponders if she need explain that part further, but for now, perhaps Sayaka had better leave it at that. "You use that soulgem to transform into a magical girl and fight witches, the source of curses. In fact, you NEED to fight witches so you can possess their grief seeds, which help you to purify your soulgem.."

    And now the tricky part. "But there are other..Prices to pay too. However, maybe that's enough information overload for now. The best advice I can give you is to think carefully about your wish. Kyubey is powerful and can grant miracles. Who knows the extent of his power? However, if you do choose to make a contract, just make sure that your wish is something worth risking your life for."
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 04:12:21 37427
Sachiko's lips begin to quiver a little as tears threaten to flow. "I don't know," she whimpers quietly, eyes wide with uncertainty. "How do you know if it's worth it? An-chi," she whimpers. "I miss An-chi, but she can't come back. She can't come back unless I wish for it. But if I wish for it, everyone will be mad at me."

She looks between Sayaka and Momo, then takes a deep breath and hunches her shoulders. "I'm not a good girl. I don't deserve An-chi to come back. But I want her to. Then I won't be so sad. Isn't that worth being a magical girl? Isn't ... isn't that worth a wish?"
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 04:19:55 37429
Without hesitation Momo wraps her arms tightly around Sachiko, just hugging her friend. She closes her eyes as she does so and tries to think hopeful thoughts, hoping they spread to Sachiko through the contact.

Momo doesn't let go of Sachiko, but she does open her eyes after a moment or two. She looks at Sayaka with bright pink eyes. "Do you think such a wish would be worth all the trouble it may cause?". It was an oddly mature question for such a young girl, but Momo has things going in her life that give her a brief insight out of her child-like dome of sanctuary.
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 04:22:09 37431
    Sayaka's heart really goes out to the poor, heartbroken girl. She cant imagine how painful it must be to lose someone you love that much, to know that only a miracle could bring them back..But at what cost?

    "Sachiko-chan..." After a little thought, Sayaka moves behind her, resting a reassuring hand on her shoulder, trying to comfort her. "I don't know if I can answer that question for you. Everyone is different. But if the hope and happiness that your wish brings you, can balance out the despair that comes with being a magical girl, then I think that it's worth it. At least, it was for me!"

    She smiles cheerfully, seemingly satisfied with how her life turned out, even if it was a rocky road. She does, however, arch a brow when Sachiko claims to not be a good girl.

    "Why would you say that? I can't imagine you could have done anything bad enough to not deserve to have her come back. I suppose people might be mad at you, but ultimately, it's your decision." Glancing again at Momo, she smiles and nods. "That's true, Momo-chan. So you should think carefully if you're prepared for that. And..There is one final price to pay, that is ultimately the biggest price of all.."

    Wait, there's more?
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 04:25:02 37432
"I don't even know why it would be so much trouble," Sachiko says, though she does lean against Momo, sadly putting her arms around the taller of the two little girls. "I don't know why no one else wants An-chi back. I miss her so much, and I don't know what to do without her, but maybe she could come stay with Kimura-sama, too, and we'd be happy together."

She sniffles a little, then looks up to Sayaka. "Price? What price?" she asks.
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 04:26:05 37433
Little pink eyes stare at Sayaka as Momo focuses all her attention on the older girl. There was another price? Of course, there was always another price. Isn't that how the stories always go in the books?
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 04:47:04 37440
    Sayaka hmms, "Why does no one else want your sister back? Surely there's a reason.." Was it because she would come back as a witch? "I caution you though, that if you do make a wish, that you be as specific as possible. Wishing her back the way she was before she became a Puella Magi. If it's even possible to bring the dead back to life, I'm not sure but Mami wished to have her life saved and she did, so maybe..."

    And of course, that might explain why they wouldn't want Anshi back. But then, the only people who knew how she really died were the other Puella..Now the difficult part.

    "..Well...The more a Puella uses their powers, the more corrupted their soulgem becomes. This may eventually lead to...Well..." she bites her lip, uncertain of how much she should tell her. Sayaka had vowed never to tell another living soul outside of the Puella Magi. As it is, she had told Shinobu, who had told WPS. Fortunately, Miss White didn't consider them a threat, but...

    "Listen Sachiko-chan, I just want you to think carefully about becoming a Puella or not, and if you are serious about becoming one, just talk to me first, because over time, Puella can...Change if they lose hope, and not for the better. I think that's enough information for now, however."
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 04:57:57 37444
Kyubey watches Sayaka's indecision with a blank expression. He knows full well what she's contemplating saying, and whether she says it seems of some interest to the creatur. He watches, but he doesn't try to interfere; doesn't caution her against or for it.

Sachiko sniffles a little. Why don't they want her back? Her eyes narrow a little at that question. It's not something she's really dwelt on. It's not something she's really asked herself. Why doesn't anyone else want Anshi back? "I don't ... know," Sachiko squeaks quietly, then turns to look at Sayaka. "How do I talk to you? I don't even know how to find you," she points out quietly.

When Sayaka fails to provide the information on Anshi, Kyubey titls its head and turns to go. It walks behind the power cable dangling from the ceiling into the DDR machine, and simply vanishes, despite the cord being too narrow. He'll be back. There's so much more time, for him.
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 05:01:15 37445
Sometime along the line of conversation a camera had popped into being atop the DDR machine. It was a solid pink and it seemed to be focusing it's lens primarily on Sayaka. It didn't stir or anything, but a small brighter pink light was lit somewhere along the front, as if it was set to record what was going on before it.

Meanwhile, Momo herself was oblivious to the construct. She was just holding Sachiko still, her eyes focused on Sayaka. "You'll tell Sachiko anything else when she needs to here it, right? I don't think she needs to hear bad stuffs right now tho'...".
Sayaka Miki 2016-04-07 05:03:01 37447
    Sayaka suspects, but then..No one but the Puella know the secret..Don't they? She'll have to have a chat with Shinobu to make sure. "Well, here, I'll give you my number. If you have any questions, or need help..Anything. Just call me, and make sure you really think this through."

    Quickly, she scribbles down her cell phone number and hands the paper to Sachiko. "Yes, Momo-chan..Please take good care of her. She does seem really upset right now, and I've already given her a lot of information to absorb. But for now, I hope it'll be enough for you to be cautious. Just know this, there is always hope, even for Puella. Her name is Madoka.."

    Glancing at her watch, she realizes she is late for a meeting, "Listen, it was nice meeting you both! I'm afraid I have to get going, or I'll miss my bus. Take care, okay?" and she's off.
Sachiko Hayakawa 2016-04-07 05:06:24 37449
Sachiko reaches up to accept the piece of paper, then stares at it for a moment. Eventually, she stuffs it into her little purse, then nods her head sadly. "Okay," she says quietly, then reaches up to wipe at her eyes.

And with Sayaka leaving, the little girl doesn't seem to know what to do next. So she just looks at Momo uncertainly. "Are we gonna play more video games?" She doesn't sound entirely enthused. But then, she hasn't sounded 'enthused' about anything, the past week.
Momo Akatsuki 2016-04-07 05:10:30 37450
Momo nods and releases Sachiko to take her spot on the dance pad. "Let's dance together, okay Sachiko?". She smiled a glistening smile of hope and happiness, tinged with the barest hint of regret, despair, and a motley of other dark feelings she felt towards her friends condition.

Momo would make Miss White see Pink, when next they meet. Nobody hurts Momo's friend, and she'd seen the bitter results too much now. Here with her friend as her friend lost her way with even the question of the wish. She felt that it was driving her the wrong way.
