EMI: "Hey! Good morning!"
HISAO: "Nice to see you back on your feet. Feeling better now?"
NARRATOR: "She looks fine to me, but I still feel compelled to ask."
EMI: "Thanks! And yeah, I do. It was just a cold, nothing serious."
NARRATOR: "Emi laughs confidently, as if to emphasize her condition. I wonder for a moment what would count as serious in Emi's book. She seems to be eager to put the topic aside, though."
HISAO: "Where are you going?"
EMI: "Off to Rin's room to see if she's awake yet."
HISAO: "Oh? She skipped the morning class?"
NARRATOR: "A sheepish smile emerges on Emi's face and she gets slightly flustered."
EMI: "Err... not exactly. It seems that she caught the cold that I had."
HISAO: "Sorry to hear that. Well, she was out in the rain on Sunday with us, after all. I saw her on Monday and she was feeling a bit under the weather back then too."
EMI: "Yeah. Anyway, I'll ask the nurse for some cold medication to give her if she doesn't get better soon."
NARRATOR: "She leaves for the girls' dorm. I want to go with her to wish Rin well. I want to tell her that I'm better now too, but it doesn't feel appropriate. An unspecified feeling diverts my thoughts away. Somehow I just can't summon the resolve to go in there. Is this what Iwanako went through when she tried to tell me what she felt?"
