Harumi clammed up as Ruruka got closer. The other girl had a certain confidence that irked Harumi a bit. Closer again, close enough to detect a "natural" scent, so to speak. Was that cherry blossoms? Before Harumi could speak up, another girl— Tanaka, I think
, she thought— proceeded to try and push Ruruka's buttons.
And then, she was falling.
Or, it felt like falling, anyways. Damned Direct Links. Harumi landed hard on her back, and something fell on her stomach. If they'd been IRL, that would have knocked the wind out of her. She felt something touch her chest. A light squeeze.
"Hnn...Thanks for breaking my fall you two, and I apologize, Harumi."
Harumi felt embarrassed, and fought the urge to cuss the other girl out like a sailor. Ruruka certainly didn't sound sorry. Okay, stomachache or not, Rexy gets to chomp her later.
Where were they now? And who was making that racket?@Rune_Alchemist@King Cosmos
