New song, this time it's a sweet little piano tune with backing strings. The Westminster chimes pattern is featured in it. It's called, oddly enough, "Kindred Spirits".

Heheh, we're sorry. It looks like you were more surprised than we expected.

Two girls... wearing uniforms I didn't recognize. No, one looked more like a "woman" than a girl...

Er, what exactly am I answering for?
Imagine me doing that look at the camera that they do on Parks and Rec once again, then cutting away to the bit in Community where they make fun of that television format.

:trex: - I don't mind having the inner monologue guide our interpretation of what's happening, but it does work a little better when the character's thoughts are more complicated than just "Why?"

:utah: - "I, the editor, could ask you the very same question!" is what more people need to think when they write stories. I'm just saying!

One was a bit of an uncouth girl in a white sailor uniform who looked about my age. Her hair was light brown, though it didn't look dyed.

As I'm typing this, I'm chewing on a fish candy that's been flavored with ammonium chloride and liquorice extract right now. I can't judge on strange in this instance, given that most people I know don't actually like that sort of thing. So who knows if I'd enjoy the lotus root candy. Maybe.

The other one wore a typical sailor uniform, with hair long and as black as her clothes. She looked even more grown-up than a third-year upperclassman.

Wh-what's going on? They've suddenly gone quiet. It was only one piece, so I couldn't have split it anyway... No, that's not it.

Why are they suddenly staring at me? They were just laughing a second ago...

:utah: - Are we sure that candy doesn't have any hallucinogens in it?

Finally, some names for these two. I tell you what, "Girl in [color] sailor uniform" is a lot to type out every single time one of them says something.

That's why I've been using copy-and-paste. Anyway, it's still a hassle.

In the tiny space between the bench and the fence...? No, the space isn't wide enough for anyone to stand there.

The picture has changed slightly and now the two girls appear a little bit translucent. So GEE I WONDER WHY.

Door slam, fade to black.

:trex: - Well, gee, let me remember that the next time someone offers me a Japanese candy!

:utah: - Like, zoinks, Scoob!

:drom: - My glasses! I can't see without my glasses!

We've been going at it for a while This first part is starting to get really long, so, OK gang, let's split up.
