They went to several other shops, and it was sunset by the time they were done.
“Let’s go home,” Shoki spoke as they walked home together. Once they reached home, everything was wretched.
“?! What happened?! Kume?!” Shoki exclaimed as she let go of Sora’s hand, and ran through the front door, “Kume?!”
“Shoki! Run!” Kume exclaimed. There was a gun fire. It was from in front of Shoki. The bullet came toward Shoki, and hit her. The bullet hit her left eye, and went through her head.
“Shoki!?” Kume exclaimed as she ran over to Shoki. She put her hand over her eye, and green streams came out. “Please live.. Please live..”
“Kume..” Shoki whispered.
“Kume! Shoki!” Sora spoke as he ran up to them.
“Sora..” a voice voiced.
“Kuraga..” Sora sighed.
“You’re too late, she is going to die,” Kuraga told him.
“No!” Sora voiced as he grabbed Kume and Shoki’s hand.
“You’re not going to teleport!” Kuraga exclaimed as he pointed the gun at Shoki, “Teleport and I’ll make it impossible for her to live!”
“.. No.. Shoki..” Sora whispered. Shoki closed her eyes. “No, don’t!” The area around them turned gray, and Kuraga stopped moving.
“Gah!” Shoki exclaimed.
“Shoki!” Sora exclaimed as they teleported away. The color returned and Sora asked, “Kume.. Will she live?”
“I’ve stopped the blood from leaking from her.. We need to get her to the hospital,” Kume told Sora.
“Okay..” Sora voiced as he picked up his phone, and dialed 119, “We need the ambulance!” He told the ambulance where we were, and they soon were there.
“What happened here?” one of the doctors asked, as the load Shoki into the truck.
“Someone shot her in the eye.. I was too late to stop it..” Sora told as he looked down.
“It will be okay, you stop the bleeding so she should be alright. The only way she will die is if she has bad brain damage,” the doctor told Sora, “Come with us. It might help her.”
“Okay..” Sora told as him and Kume boarded on the truck. The both were hold Shoki’s hands.
“Shoki..” Kume whispered.
“I’m sorry..” Sora whispered.
They, soon, were at the hospital, and the ambulance showed them to a room. Sora and Kume had to wait outside, while Shoki was looked at. Kume, also, phoned Takara-san and told her about what happened. Takara-san told the other girls, and they all rushed to the hospital.
“We got here as fast as we could!” Takara-san told Kume once they arrived.
“They still wouldn’t let us in the room..” Kume whispered.
“..” Sora sighed as he looked down.
“.. Did you try and heal her?” Rita-san asked.
“H-How do you know about that?” Kume asked.
“Shoki and I told them..” Sora told her.
“.. I healed her to the best of my abilities.. All I could do was close the wound..” Kume confessed. A doctor, then, came out.
“She is alive..but she can’t feel emotions anymore..” the doctor told them.
“What!” they exclaimed.
“The bullet hit a part of her brain, and that part happened to be the emotional center..” the doctor told them.
“.. No..” Sora whispered to himself.
“You can see her if you want to,” the doctor told as he opened the door the rest of the way. The all went in, and Sora and Kume went to her side.
Shoki was awake and looking at them with her one eye, “Kume.. Sora..”
“.. I’m sorry..” Sora whispered.
“What are you sorry for?” Shoki asked.
“.. I let you go ahead, and now you’re hurt..” Sora confessed as he held onto her hand.
“It’s no use.. I can’t feel sympathy.. Or love.. All I feel is emptiness..” Shoki told them, “I can remember all the emotions, but I can’t feel them..”
“Shoki..” Kume whispered as she hugged her.
“.. I’m sorry, Kume..” Shoki told her.
“.. Shoki-san..” Ken-san whispered.
“I can’t feel anything I want to.. I want to feel everything I did back before I was shot.. It was so fun back then..” Shoki whispered, “Now.. I just have one attitude..”
“.. Shoki..” Kume whispered as she let go of her.
“Shoki-san is allowed out, but the three of you will be relocated..” the doctor told them, “Also Shoki-san. You need to where this.” He handed Shoki a eye patch.
“Thank you,” Shoki told as she put the eye patch on her left eye.
“We would like you to stay here for the a few nights, during the day you can go out,” the doctor told Shoki.
“Okay..” Shoki answered.
“Well all of you need to go home. Shoki-san’s sister, and the boy can stay for the night,” the doctor told them.
“Okay.. We’ll come see you tomorrow before school, I’ll also lend you one of my spare uniforms Kume-chan, Shoki-san. Sora-kun, I’ll ask my brother if I can borrow one of his spare outfits,” Takara-san told us.
“Thank you, Takara-san.. See you three tomorrow,” Shoki told them.
“Goodbye,” Ken-san told them as the three girls left.
“Goodnight, you three,” the doctor told as he turned the light off, and left the room.
“Goodnight, you two,” Shoki voiced as she closed her eye, and went to sleep.
