First Star (chapter 10)
After Hoshika left the Time room she followed Seira to a room, Seira said, " This is my room" Seira's room was normal (according to her, she is a rich girl) I said, " Umm Seira the clothes..." Seira said, " Oh yeah! Here!" And gave me some clothes from her cupboard she said, " I know your and my size are the same!"
Hoshika said, "No... this is a bit loose around the stomach, did you gain weight Seira?" Seira had a tick mark she said, "Well I am sorry for being fat!" Hoshika said, "Hey! Don't get mad..." Seira calmed down she said "I am sorry! I got a bit frustrated since nowadays I cannot stop eating sweets" Hoshika smiled (a smile like Hoshika, you know a confident smile) and said, "It's okay!" And they sat on the bed
Seira was a but quiet, Hoshika asked, " Seira, is something wrong?" Seira said, "Hoshika... why don't everyone like you? I mean you are more beautiful than me, you have a better figure than me, you are more stronger than me it's just your grades that need to be improved, then why don't people like you??" Hoshika said, "It's my personality you know... I maybe acting good with you but I am that way with only you, Jim and Sakura, I am not good with socializing"
Seira nodded understanding, Hoshika perked up as if she remembered something, she said, "Seira, if Jim is a prince then are you a princess?" Seira laughed and said, "Me? A princess?" Hoshika nodded, Seira said, "Come on Hoshika! Obviously I am not a princess! Do I look like one to you?" Hoshika nodded again and Seira sweat dropped and said, "Anyways I am not a princess, I am an orphan" Hoshika said, "Then how did you end up here with Jim?"
Seira said, " The orphanage in which I stayed was in a bad condition most of us were being transferred to another orphanage but I wanted to stay in that orphanage, everyone over there were really kind so I begged the director to let me say but he said, 'I don't want a burden' "
Hoshika said, "That's terrible! He really said that to you?!" Seira said, "He did, but there are definitely people with worse hearts , and after that, he said, 'You should be happy that you even have a shelter there're children with much harsher living conditions than you"' even though I didn't want to believe it somewhere in my mind I knew that it is true"
Hoshika said, "Seira..." Seira laughed a bit and said, "Don't make that face! You do want to know what happened further right!" Hoshika said, "I do! But are you sure you can tell me?" Seira said "What? Are you not my best friend?" Hoshika smiled and said, "Continue"
Seira said, "Speaking to the director I decided I would transfer, the new orphanage was much bigger than the previous one but all the sisters there were really mean they were nothing like the sisters at my previous church I was so lonely the other kids were bullying me but sisters did nothing"
Hoshika hugged Seira but when she realized what she was doing she quickly pulled back flustered, she said, "C-continue" Seira chuckled and said, "After one day when they hit me hard I decided to run away. Hoshika said, "Run away?!" Seira nodded, she said, "After many weeks of wandering here and there my body finally gave up..."
She said, "But I was saved... by... Jim!" Hoshika said, " Jim?!" Seira said, "Yup" Hoshika said, " Yes, Jim is kind but helping a total stranger isn't like him" Seira said, "I also have no idea why he saved me, I still don't but he did and I really owe him for that. He gave me food and offered me to stay here in the palace, it was an unbelievable offer who wouldn't take it?"
Hoshika said, "I won't" Seira sighed and said, "That's because you were born in a place no less than royalty unlike me..." Hoshika realized Seira was right.
