Thinking of Friends

Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
............


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(It's been a while since we got stranded on that beach––)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(After finding the perfect cave for shelter, we began our survival life.)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(My task is to be on the lookout for passing ships from the hill.)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(Right now, the others are out exploring, gathering food, and cooking...)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
............


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(Come to think of it, it's been a long time since I've spent time by myself like this.)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(I don't dislike the quiet. And I'm fine being alone. But...it feels strange to not be able to hear everyone's voices.)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(Karen and Mahiru were always with me in our room and there was always someone in the dorm...)


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I hope everyone is okay...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Doesn't look like anything's changed.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Yeah.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Here, it's for you. Can you drink coconut juice?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...I think so...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
This is the leftover from when Fumi made bubble tea for Nonomiya.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Thank you.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Doesn't look like any ships pass by here.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I've been watching forever but nothing passes by.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I see.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Yeah.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
............


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
............


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Are you worried about everyone else's safety?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...How did you know?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Because I feel the same way.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Worried?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Yeah. As leader of the Edels, of course I am.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
You have Hanayagi from Seisho Music Academy with you so you might feel a bit calmer, but...


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
No, you're mistaken.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
...I see. I apologize.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...You're talking a lot today.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Hm...


Akira (icon).png Akira:
...You're right.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...?


Akira (icon).png Akira:
There are always noisy people around, so I was just wondering what you were thinking.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I'm no different from you. I'm worried about everyone and want to get back on stage as soon as possible.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I see... That's true.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
I'll leave you to it. Tell me if you see anything.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Okay... Thanks for the coconut juice.


Akira (icon).png Akira:
Even though you aren't moving around, it's hot here. Make sure to stay hydrated.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
*Gulp* ...It's warm.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...But delicious. Thank you.

Giant Aerial Monitoring Kite Fort

Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
............


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
(No changes today either. No ships, no nothing.)


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hikari!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hey, I have this great idea! It might be a revolutionary lookout!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Revolutionary lookout...?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
That's right! If we tie a gigantic kite around me, I can monitor from the sky and we wouldn't miss ships that are far away! Perfect, isn't it?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I don't think I'm following you.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hm, how about a ninja holding onto a kite in period dramas?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
And I'll be monitoring in the sky with the kite and you'll be controlling the kite and me, also known as, Kitefin!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I think I can kind of understand now. But where's the kite?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
We don't have one yet! But I think we can make one with the boat's sail and other materials on the island, so let's go make it together!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
If I leave my position, I'll get scolded...


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Don't worry, I already told Fumi and Akira about it! They agreed as long as we can show results! And Fumi also volunteered to be on the lookout in the meantime!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Okay. I guess it's fine then.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Tadah! It's done! A giant aerial monitoring kite fort!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
It's my first time seeing such a big kite.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yeah, it needs to be this big for it to carry me.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
That's true. If it's this big, it should be able to carry a person.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Now, first let's check the stability of the skeleton to make sure this gigantic kite can fly! I'll try putting my feet on it to check. Hup!


:
*crack*!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Oh no, it broke!!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Let's start over.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Tadah! It's finished! Instead of tree branches, we used wood from the boat for the skeleton. Giant Aerial Monitoring Kite Fort Mark II!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Be careful and check the stability first.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
All right... Ngh! It doesn't budge even with my pushing and pulling! Doesn't look like it'll break so easily!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Shall we fly it?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yeah! Help me put on the kite!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Okay, looks like there's a nice breeze here! Let's go over the steps!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
With the kite attached to my body, I'll run with all my might to a head wind!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Then the kite on my back will catch the wind pressure and fly up into the sky!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Yeah.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
And like that, once the kite catches the wind pressure, Stage Girl Lalafin Nonomiya will transform into Kitefin!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
But then Kitefin will fall so, Hikari, you have to tug on the rope that acts as the kite string to keep the wind pressure up!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Leave it to me.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Okay! I'm gonna start running! I'll jump on 3!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I got it.


:
*dash*!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
1, 2, 3!


:
*swish*


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Oh!? It's floating!?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Ah... My balance—!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Hm, that failed...


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
It wasn't very stable.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
It upsets the balance... The kite itself floated, so maybe if I can stabilize my core it could work...


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
If you want to stabilize the core, instead of grabbing onto the kite directly, how about attaching it to a carriage of some sort? Like a hot air balloon.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Oh! Nice idea, Hikari!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
In that case, we could use the big wooden box inside the sailboat! If we attach the kite to the box... I think it would work!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
But the wooden box looks heavy. If the running start is hard, I'm worried if the kite will actually fly.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
I see, you're right... Hmm. Oh! I have a great idea!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...You're still not giving up.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Kaoruko! The success of this plan depends on you!


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Huh? Why did you call me out here all of a sudden...? What is this? A hot air balloon?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Let me explain it briefly!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Tadah! This is the gigantic kite and the wooden box for riding. Giant Aerial Monitoring Kite Fort Ω! And Pilder Kaoruko!


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Why am I the...? Wait a minute, what even is a pilder? Is that what you call people who fly kites?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
You are the acceleration assistant device! You're going to hold on to Giant Kite Ω together with me and fly away into the sky!


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
I don't get it. I won't ask anymore.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
So I just have to carry the wooden box attached to the kite and run with you so the box will float together with the kite, right?


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yeah! And the moment it floats, I'll hop into the box!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
I got it.


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Now the three of us will work together to become one! We'll burn as one and fly off!


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
It's fine to be passionate, but once this is over, I'm going back right away.


:
*swoosh*


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
What a strong wind... Now might be our chance...!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
This is the best wind! Everyone, get ready!


:
*stampede*


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Velocity is okay! Lift at 120%! Course and visibility is good! Everyone, on "1, 2, Lalafin", all right?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
1...


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
2...


:
Lalafin!


Lalafin (icon).png Lalafin:
Yay! We did it! I'm flying!


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
She's actually flying...!


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
Whew. She must have a good view that high up.


Kaoruko (icon).png Kaoruko:
By the way, how are you going to get her down later?


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
We...didn't talk about that.

Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
Clear the food... Household chores have been surprisingly helpful. Thanks, Mahiru...

Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
It's difficult just to survive, but we're working together and managing somehow.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
And all kinds of experience helps with the stage. When I think of it like that, I can do my best with this stranded desert island life.


Hikari (icon).png Hikari:
...I want to get back onto the stage soon.
