“Thank you,” Shoki spoke as she bowed.
“No, don’t thank me yet. If you find your sister, then you can thank me,” Sora’s mother told Shoki.
“We might want to get going,” Sora told them.
“Okay then, please come back once you get your sister back,” Sora’s mother told them.
“Okay,” Shoki spoke.
“Let’s go,” Sora spoke as he grabbed Shoki’s hand.
“Okay,” Shoki replied as she closed her eyes. Sora closed his eyes, and the scenery changed. They were in an alleyway. They opened their eyes, and they Sora let go of Shoki’s hand.
“Where is this place?” Shoki asked.
“This is where his old business place was,” Sora answered, “Shoki.. Do you think you can freeze time?”
“I don’t know..” Shoki confused.
“Just concentrate like time travel. We can then move without worry,” Sora phrased as he looked at Shoki.
She blushed then stated, “Okay..” She closed her eyes, and thought about everything freezing. The alleyway turned dark.
“You did it,” Sora told Shoki.
“I did?” Shoki asked as she opened her eyes, “I did.”
“Let’s go,” Sora voiced as he opened the door, in the alleyway. Shoki stumbled over to the door.
“My body.. Feels weaker,” Shoki told Sora.
“Time-seeing might have taken energy out of you,” Sora said as he helped Shoki over to the door.
“I-I’m fine..” Shoki stammered.
“No you’re not..” Sora said as he put his hand up to her forehead, “You have a fever.. Just stay out here. I’ll bring your sister back.” Sora leaned Shoki against the outside wall, “I promise.”
“.. Okay..” Shoki said as she tried to focus. Sora ran inside, to get Kume back. Shoki tried to stay awake. The area around Shoki stayed dark. She closed her eyes, and fell asleep.
When Shoki woke up, Kume was there holding her.
“K-Kume..” Shoki whispered.
“Shoki.. You’re awake,” Kume whispered.
“You’re okay..” Shoki whispered to her.
“Everyone in there froze, and Sora-kun came and got me out of there,” Kume told Shoki.
“Oh.. That reminds me.. Shoki you can resume time,” Sora told Shoki.
“Okay,” Shoki closed her eyes, and thought about everyone moving. The color returned to everything.
“Wow.. How did that happen?” Kume asked.
“I need to explain to you both. Kume, you need to close your eyes,” Sora told Kume.
“Okay..” Kume stated as she closed her eyes.
“Ready?” Sora asked as Shoki nodded. Sora grabbed Shoki’s hand, and they closed their eyes. The scenery around them changed. They were back at the garden. Shoki and Sora opened their eyes, and let go of each other’s hand.
“You can open your eyes, Kume,” Shoki told Kume.
“Okay,” Kume articulated as she opened her eyes. She let go of me, and look around.
“Where are we? How did we get here?” Kume asked.
“We teleported to Sora’s home,” Shoki answered.
“Teleported?” Kume asked.
“My mother and I will explain,” Sora spoke as he opened the door. He went to go get his mother.
