Reading Week

Misora (icon).png Misora:
Hmm... What should I borrow today?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Historical fiction's always fun, but there was that fancy book I was looking at before, too... Hm?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Oh, hello! Headed to the library?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Me too. I figure I'd check out a book during the break time.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Want to go together?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
It is reading week, after all. I've been hitting the library pretty frequently.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
If we had longer break times, it would be nice to stay and do my reading there.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Whenever I'm reading in the classroom, Aruru comes and bugs me. I never get to focus.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I'm always yelling at her that it's reading week, so sit there quietly and read!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Huh? Am I a big book fan? I don't know that I'd call reading my hobby or anything.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Though one book did turn me on to it.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Until pretty recently, I never had much interest in reading.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
If I had time, I'd go running, or get more practice in.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I probably never would have gone to the library, if not for reading week.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
But once I DID go, and saw how many interesting books there were, I got hooked.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
At this rate, I'll be a regular there even after this week ends. Ahaha!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Huh? Which book was it that grabbed me?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
This one. "Don Quixote."


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I came across it on my first trip to the library and decided to give it a go. And it was so good.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I knew the title, just because it's a famous story. But I'd never actually read it, so I had no idea what it was about.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I went into it thinking I'd kill a little time over reading week, but it really pulled me in...


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Whenever I had a free minute, I found myself cracking it open to read another few pages!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Oh, but never during practice, of course. Even breaks still count as practice time!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Have you ever read Don Quixote?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
If not, you should! I really recommend it!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
From the flow of the story to the characters, it's entertaining from end to end.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I've gone back and re-read it three times already. Huh? What's so good about it? Hmmm...


Misora (icon).png Misora:
The adventure? I mean, doesn't going off on a quest with your sidekick sound fun?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I wouldn't want to be like Don Quixote myself, but I WOULD like to go on an adventure like his.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
If I ever get the chance, I'd bring... Hmm, Aruru's probably the perfect Sancho.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Plus she's always dragging me into her craziness. It's only fair I get a turn!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Although a road trip with her... She'd probably still find a way to make everything go haywire.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I'd need at least one other person there to keep her under control...


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I'd feel bad dragging the older students into it, though.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Huh? You'll take the job? It wouldn't be easy, you know.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
...Haha, thanks!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Then when Aruru and I take off on out grand adventure, I'll give you a call.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
...Ack! Break time's almost up already!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Sorry, I've got to get back to class! See you later!

Like Don Quixote

Misora (icon).png Misora:
Ah... That was so good!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I wish I could do that... I wanna go on an adventure like Don Quixote!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
What what, now? What's up?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
!?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
You wanna do what, Misora?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Don't jump out of nowhere like that, Aruru. You startled me!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Heh heh, sorry. But I at least waited til you finished reading.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Oh. You were waiting? Sorry, I didn't notice you!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
That's okay. What is it you wanna do?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Hmm? Did I say something like that?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
You sure did! You said you want to go on an adventure like Don Quixote!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
If you heard me, why are you asking!?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
An adventure, huh? That WOULD be awesome. I'd love to go on one myself!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
And now you're not even listening...


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
I've never read Don Quixote, but an adventure with you sounds super fun, Misora!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
We'd help each other through thick and thin, whatever came our way ♪


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Yes, I suppose it wouldn't be an adventure without a bit of that.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
But there's a big difference between actually adventuring and just daydreaming about it.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
You probably wouldn't make it five steps before giving up and heading home.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whaaat? No way! I'll have you know I've got TONS of perseverance!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Just, um... Just look at my daily run! I run with you every morning, no skipping days!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
True... Though it's only recently you've started being able to keep up.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Hmmm, are you sure that's right?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Yes, and you know it.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Ooh, I know! We can act it out on stage!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Act out what? "Don Quixote"?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Yeah! It's an awesome story, right? Then it'd be a shame not to perform it. Plus we get our adventure! It's two birds with one stone!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Plus, if it's on stage, we can have everybody there with us!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Performing "Don Quixote"... You know, I don't hate the idea.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Right!? Because you LOVE it!


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Now that it's settled, let's go tell Lalafin and the others!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
What? Whoa whoa, slow down a minute. Isn't this a little sudden?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Is it? Why sleep on a good idea?


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Come on, Misora! A journey of adventure beckons!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
That doesn't mean rushing in is the answer!


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Ugh, talking to you makes me feel like Sancho Panza.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Sancho who? Wait, you're not Don Quixote?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
That was my plan, if I were going on an adventure. But if I'm with you, I'm always going to be in Sancho's shoes.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
You're a natural born Don Quixote, Aruru.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whoa, really!? Hee hee, you're gonna make me blush with the compliments here ♪


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Then as my bestest friend, you're a natural Sancho! ...I'm guessing. I don't really know the story.


Misora (icon).png Misora:
First off, it wasn't a compliment. Second, telling someone they're a perfect Sancho isn't really a compliment, either.


Aruru (icon).png Aruru:
Whaaat? Why not!?

Misora (icon).png Misora:
It's still not a hundred percent, but I'm getting closer to understanding Don Quixote.

Misora (icon).png Misora:
Just a hypothetical, but what would Don Quixote's life have been like if he never read those tales of chivalry?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
I guess he never would have sold his land or called himself a knight errant, so he'd have just stayed a noble?


Misora (icon).png Misora:
Hmm, it's tough to say which is the better choice, but it's hard not to think about what could've been...
