WindS-B - Chapter 2: Tailwind of Progress - Part 5
After roughly 20 minutes, the door to the hallway opens...
"Yo~! Sorry we're late." Koji came in holding a box, and accompanied by Chrono.
"More like you're late, you made me tag along. Get a driver's licence already." Chrono commented.
"Hahaha...Maren likes to drive, so I let her."
Everyone in the party turned towards the door, Maren walked up to Koji.
"I'm back, Maren."
"Welcome back." She greeted her husband, taking his coat.
The two kept looking at eachother.
Chrono sighed, moving away from them as he gave his tie some slack. "Really, 10 years and still acting newlyweds..."
"Hehe~" Koji scratched the back of his head as he heard that.
Elly looked at the two men that came in, (That person is Fuu-chan's father...looks like an average person. But to act like that with Admiral Harlaown.)
She then looked at Fuuko, who was staring at her father, with an expression she couldn't quite decipher.
Koji noticed and smiled at Fuuko, who adverted her look.
Elly had an impression since she saw Fuuko's reactions at the Academy, but this would confirm it...
She's in bad terms with her father...or something like that. But the father doesn't seem to be bothered by it...so it may be one-sided.
After greeting everyone, Koji walked up to Fuuko and Elly. "You must by Ellyja, right?"
"Ah, Y-yes!" She stood straight, "Ellyja Halvern, nice to meet you sir!" She bowed.
"Minawa Koji, nice to meet you."
"Eh? Koji...? TSAB Enforcer Assistant and Saint Church Knight...that Koji?" She asked.
"Oh? You heard about me?"
"Hmm? What?" She looked at her partner.
"Y-your father is the Demon Knight of Swords?!" She turned to Fuuko shaking all over.
"Yeah...I thought you knew already. After all, there aren't that many people named Minawa here in Mid-Childa."
"Hahah...you heard of that too, it's a bit embarrassing." Koji scratched his cheek.
"All that managed to upset that knight would be beaten to a pulp until they apologized and begged for forgiveness."
"That's basically it." Fuuko sighs. "Well, it's mostly the other sides' fault, insulting Mother is a serious offense."
"Mhm, quite right." Koji nods.
Elly sweatdrops, (These two are really father and daughter...)
With the introductons over, Koji turns to his daughter and kneels over, "So, how's academy for you?"
Fuuko looks away, "Fine, I guess..."
"It's fun, I see, I see." He nodded, patting her head.
Elly just watched Fuuko blushing while being passively reluctant and her father reading her like and open book.
"It's good to know that everything's fine." Koji turns to Maren, who hands over the box he came in with, and presents it to Fuuko. "Here."
"Hmm?" She looked at the simple box. "What's this?"
"Although it's a little late...Happy Birthday."
"...T-Thanks." She nodded, taking the box.
"Open it when you get back, ok?"
"What's inside?" She raised an eyebrow as she checked the box.
"That's a secret~" He smiled.
"...It better not be some flashy new clothes." Fuuko glared at her dad.
"Oh, don't worry, that's not it." He paused, "Those are at home for you to try them on the next day off~"
Silent, Fuuko frowned then sighed. It's something she's used to...it can't be helped.
"Then...next issue." Fuuko glared once more.
"Yes?" He smiled as usual.
"The first day of Academy, you went through my bag and switched my training equipment..."
"Ah, yes...and how were they?"
"That's besides the point! You went through a girl's personal belongings!"
Koji waved his finger, "Correction, I went through my cute daugther's personal belongings~"
"That makes it sound even worse!" She raises her voice a level.
"Ah, but Papa knows. Fuuko is the most graceful when wearing tight or legless clothes."
"W-well, that's true but--" Before she can finish, Koji interrupts her.
"I even have some pictures and movies to prove~" He pulled out his device from under his shirt,
"Argh! Stop embarrassing me!" Fuuko grabbed her father by the collar of his uniform and shook him.
"Hahaha~" Koji laughed as Fuuko shook him, "Ellyja, would you like to see some pictures of Fuuko when she was little?"
"EH? Can I?!" Elly stepped closer.
"You too?!" Fuuko glared at her partner.
The party continued for a couple of hours, with games, karaoke...and Hayate's mischiefs.
Doing as told, Fuuko saved the box for when she and Elly returned to the Academy.
The two girls return to their room in the Academy's dorm, tired but satisfied.
To Fuuko, that day went by too fast, she was happy to see her mother and friends but she wanted to spend more time with them.
Such thoughts though, were only going through her heart, in her mind, she scolded herself for being too attached and being pampered by them.
She's a grown girl now, she can't have such thoughts when less than hour has passed since she saw them....so she thought.
Fuuko goes over to her desk and sets the box she got from her father. (...birthday present?)
Even though she always received many gifts on her birthday, this year she was in the Academy, a proper party could not be thrown.
But it was promissed that once she graduates and passes the TSAB Mage Rank exam, the party will be bigger than ever.
(Bigger than ever...huh?) she thought, undoing the red ribbon on her hair.
Having changed to her pajamas, she grabs her hair and ties it all together with the same ribbon.
Elly, already readying herself to go to bed, noticed Fuuko was still staring at the box.
"Umm...why don't you open it?"
"Eh?" Fuuko snapped out of her train of thought. "Oh...yeah, I guess."
Guessing is pointless since opening the box will solve the mistery, Fuuko undid the ribbon wrapped around the box and...opened it.
"..........!!" Fuuko's eyes were wide open.
"...i...i" Her body shook.
"i?" Elly blinked.
"Inarizushi~~" All the tension in her melted away as she saw her favorite food.
"Eh? What?" Confused, Elly looked at her roommate.
"Food from Earth~ My favorite~" She showed the box's contents to Elly.
Elly blinked, inside were several pouch-shaped things that were apparently deep-fried.
The food did look interesting, but on Elly's list, Fuuko's unexpected behavior beat the food by far...
Ecstatic, Fuuko contemplated the many inarizushi inside the box, she was so overjoyed with it that it took a while to realize.
Mid-Childa doesn't have Inarizushi...and this aroma was undoubtable proof that it was made by Koji's mother, her grandmother.
Koji had gone all the way to Earth and get Inarizushi made by his mother just for a belated birthday present...
Her eyes shimmered...how can she be mad at him if he keeps doing stuff like this?
The mixed feelings squeezed her heart...there was only one way to make it go away, to forget it for now.
So, she picked up a single inarizushi from the box and closed it.
"Eh? You're going to eat it now?"
"Got a problem with it?" Fuuko glared at Elly.
"N-No, not really..." Elly backed off, (Is she going to be alright? We ate a lot at the party...)
"Ah-mu" Fuuko bit the small pouch and the flavor inside quickly spreads. "Mmmm~~" She shivers.
Though watching Fuuko's new reaction was fun, Elly was tired, and it was getting late...
"Well, I'm going to sleeee...!!" Elly's eyes widened as she saw something Fuuko isn't supposed to have: long, ponty and furry ears, and a thick furry tail?!
"What's wrong?" Fuuko looked at Elly over her shoulder, before taking another bite on the half-eaten inarizushi in her hand.
"Y-y-y-y-you, you're a familiar?!" She pointed at her tail.
"Uhh?" She followed her pointing finger, "...GEH!?"
"T-that's...transformation magic...right?" Elly tried to remain calm.
With her free hand, Fuuko scratched the back of her, "If you saw it, it can't be helped..."
She ate the rest of the inarizushi, took a handkerchief to clean her hand, folded it and set it on her desk.
"......" Elly stayed silent, staring at Fuuko's new appendage.
Pulling the chair from her desk, she turned it towards Elly and sat on it, tail resting on her lap...she stroke it as if it was somekind of pet.
"It's not exactly a secret, but people tend to fear someone that doesn't fit 'Human' or 'Familiar' category."
"So...it's not transformation magic?" She asks again.
"It's similar, but at the same time, different...I was born with these." She pointed at the ears on top of her head and patted her tail.
"Then, you got them from either-"
Fuuko interrupts, "Mother, she's a fox, dad is human."
"Demi-human, halfbreed...there's many words to what I am..." She explains with a solemn face.
"Mother belongs to a race of foxes that have the natural ability to change into human form...they mostly live hiding and avoid human contact unless necessary."
Elly nodded, a sign for Fuuko to continue.
"Their normal lifespan is about 10 times that of a human...with some exceptions."
"Te-ten!? Then, Fuu-chan's mother is..."
Fuuko thinks, "Hmm...about 270 I think, oh, after the 200th year an aditional tail grows every 100 years they live. So Mother has two tails, while I have one."
"Then how old are you?" Elly asks.
"I'm the age I appear, for now...soon my growth will slow down and eventually even people younger than me will outgrow me."
"Inevitable, well...I'm a halfbreed, so maybe my lifespan is half of a fullbreed."
"...sad." Elly finished her previous sentence.
"Watching every one grow older and while you stay the same..." Elly's expression saddened as she imagined it.
"Yes...eventually my dad...and everyone in today's party will grow old and die...and only me and Mother will stay behind."
"Even though they love eachother so much?"
"It can't be helped, humans don't live that long...and if I'm a half, I'll eventually grow older than Mother and..."
"Don't say it!!!" Elly jumped from bed and hugged Fuuko.
"....What are you doing?" Surprised, she looked at her partner.
"Don't say such sad things..."
"I'm only stating the truth."
"Still..." She hugged her tigher. (I don't like so see Fuu-chan like this...cold and realistic...like she's a compeletely different person.)
"Awa! S-Sorry!" Elly let her go.
"*wheeze*....Trying to kill me or something?" She glared.
"Sorry, got a little caught up." She apologizes.
"Anyway..." Fuuko stroke her tail to straighten the ruffled fur. "I told you this, so you know what it means?"
"If I squeal, I'm done for?" She playfully sticked out her tongue.
"...there's that too."
"R-REALLY?!" She panicked.
"It's a joke..."
Elly sighed in relief "...it's really a joke, right?"
"It is...now answer."
"Hmm...it means Fuu-chan trusts me?" She smiled wholeheartedly.
Looking away, Fuuko blushes ".............y-yeah."
"It'll be ok! I'll protect Fuu-chan's secret! Eh-hem!" Elly sticked her chest out with pride.
"I hope you realize how serious this is..." Fuuko interrupted her 'moment of glory'.
"Eh?" Elly blinked.
"I'm a rare, if not unique lifeform...if this leaks, some shady scientists would love to get their hands on me." She stated seriously.
Seeing that face, Elly swallows hard.
"Don't worry." Fuuko smirked. "I rarely use this form here in Mid-Childa, and even if someone tries to capture me, I won't go without a fight."
"Mhm!" Elly nods. "And I'll protect you too!" She said all fired up.
"Heh...before you say that, you should train harder." Fuuko grins, "And as soon as the training fields are adjusted, we'll go back to the usual schedule."
"U-uuuuu~" and her mood quickly switches over to gloomy.
"But until then, rest. It's pretty late so--" Fuuko was preparing to climb to her bed when Elly interruped.
"What?" Half way on the ladder, she looked down on Elly.
"You're not chaging?" She pointed at her tail.
"Ah, it's been a while so I'll sleep like this and change in the morning."
"Then..." Making some space, Elly patted on the empty space, "Let's sleep together~"
"Haaa?" Fuuko's expression turned into a surprised one, with a hint of red on her cheeks.
"Just this once...please?"
"M-muu..." Fuuko's eye twitched, then looked away, "J-just this once...got it?"
"Mhm!" She nodded happily.
Though a bit reluctant, Fuuko joined Elly in her bed.
"D-do we really need to sleep facing eachother?!" She blushed.
"Yes~" Elly looks at Fuuko and giggles "Hehe~"
"W-what? It's creepy if you laugh like that..."
"It's like I got a little sister~"
"Uhm...I guess so. Uwa!" Elly pulls Fuuko closer to her. "What are you--"
"Hmm...Fuu-chan is nice and warm~" She hugs Fuuko tightly.
"Really..." Fuuko sighs, "You're older than me, but you're so spoiled."
"Hehehe~" Elly's hands start sliding down Fuuko's back.
"H-hey?! What are y---hiyaaa~!" Her eyes open widely as something is unexpectedly grabbed.
"Just as I thought...it's so warm~"
"H-h-heeey, d-don't....not there. Ugh!" The fox-girl winces.
"So soft too~"
"W-What are...you do--ngh!" Fuuko can hardly speak from the stimulation.
"Ah, this? Back when I hugged Fuu-chan, your tail got stuck between us and it felt warm so, since it's been getting colder lately, I thought this could keep me wa---"*SMASH!*
"Haa...Haaa...haa" jumping out of Elly's bed, Fuuko breathed heavily , "I...I'm not your personal bedwarmer!!" She shouted.
"Ow ow ow..." Elly rubbed her head.
"Don't go touching my tail so easily!" She said blushing furiously, (It's a really sensitive area!)
"S-sorry, I won't do it again, so come back in." Elly apologized, leaving the space for her to get in.
"Like hell I will!" She started climbing the ladder, "and I'm triplin--no, quintupling your training! Starting tomorrow!!"
"What? Noo...pwease, Fuu-chan~~~" Elly begged.
"Go to sleep! We're waking up early tomorrow!"
While Elly sniveled in her bed, Fuuko inside the bedsheets held her knees, her tail between them.
(baka..............that felt good.) She blushed, hugging her tail.
Meanwhile...Koji and Maren were at a medical office with Shamal.
"As you might have deduced, I called you here because I got the test results."
"Judging by your face, it's not good."
"I'm afraid it's worse than I expected..." Shamal opens the file and browses through it.
Koji and Maren hold hands, "So...how much time?"
"3 years...maybe 4 if we're lucky."
"I see..." Maren lowers her head.
"I think you two should tell this to Fuuko as soon as possible. Before she notices it herself."
"We'd like to...but if we do, she won't be able to focus on her career." Koji forces a smile.
"I guess you're right, that girl looks like the calm and collected type, but she's actually one that lets her emotions take over. Just like a certain boy I know."
"Hahahah...." Koji laughed, embarrassed.
"We need more time, until she's grown enough as a person, then we can talk to her." Maren comments.
"That's the only choice we have at the moment..." Shamal paused, "But she's a smart girl, it's only a matter of time until she realize something is wrong with you two."
"We just have to be careful." Koji got up from his chair, presented his hand to Maren, like a gentleman.
"Best of luck...that's all I can do." Shamal smiled.
"Thank you." Maren bows and the couple leaves.
Outside...Koji and Maren walk towards the parking lot.
"3 years, huh?" Koji repeats.
Squeezed her hand gently, "Don't apologize, it was my choice after all."
"But..." Maren looks at her husband.
"I don't regret it...never did, never will." Koji smiles at his lovely wife.
"Thank you." She returns his kindness with a smile.
Koji nods, "We'll just have to make the best of the time we have left."
"...Yes." Maren holds his hand tighter.
That's it for Chapter 2...hopefully I'll be able to post part 1 of Chapter 3 soon.
But for now...
Preview of Chapter 3
A wrecked scenery...
Reward for those who strive...
And happiness, stolen at the blink of an eye...
Trying out a style of Preview I saw recently in an anime :3
