o, but yeah, my appearance had mostly stayed the same.

Why was it that this girl was crying again?

When was it that I last cried?

Ah, that was right.
It was the time my father and mother died in an accident.

Since the moment I found out was really sad, I remembered it even now.

A turning point in my life.
Including the fact that I had also left Rin-chan’s side for the first time, it felt as if the world had changed.

But…..was that the t r u e r e a s o n w h y I w a s c r y i n g ?

The moment I thought that, I knew I was waking up from my dream.

As if refusing to remember it, the scenery began to blur.

While on my way to disappearing, the crying 《Nanako -Me-》met eyes with me.

Those eyes…they were so terribly blank, as if they reflected nothing.

So strong that it could make me stop breathing, they held a violent emotion so hot that they seemed they could burn through anything.

What awaited me as I returned home was a house with no presence of anyone.

While sighing, I dragged my feet to the living room, and as if not allowing me to feel her presence, Nana was sleeping on the sofa.

「Haaa…..as I thought.」

Looking at Nana who was sleeping and her phone on the ground blinking, I once again sighed.

Based on the situation, it looked as if she had been sleeping since the night before yesterday.

She simply was asleep and so she couldn’t take the call, and because the result was so mundane that it could sneer at Touka’s worries, I once again sighed.

「Nana, it’s already morning, you know.」

As I shook her shoulders, her body twitched.
For a moment she smelled with her nose, and noticing that it was my scent, her body that stiffened up had relaxed.

So she didn’t feel like waking up at all.
With that, I sighed for the third time and sat on the sofa beside Nana, who was curled up.

My dear father had made me a courtesy car.
And because of that, it was made with functions like a VIP room, but still, being inside the car for the whole night was tiring.

And moreover, this was after weathering through the two extra days of the event, and since it was prolonged, I thought I should return home quickly because Nana might’ve been feeling lonely, and I even returned home with a car.

But I returned to this.
This girl, without any words of appreciation just sleeping deeply.
It should be fine for me to get mad, right?

Just when I was about to make a circle with my fingers, thinking of flicking her head, I saw a trace of tears on Nana’s face.

「….I see, so it was just as I thought.」

Along with the anger that had dispersed, I released my circled fingers.

I had predicted it, but life in WLO had stimulated Nana more than I had imagined.

「Right now,」 Nana shed tears.
Exactly how shocking this event was, the only one who knew was probably me.

That was a sign.
The cover on her strongly sealed memories, this was certain proof that it had loosened.

I thought the cover wouldn’t loosen immediately.
But still, it had come to the point in which all that was left was to pull the trigger.

「If I were to be honest, I think that I want her to keep forgetting it.」

Nana had forgotten it….no, it was more that the memories were sealed in, and they were limited to one thing.
The time wouldn’t even fill a day, it was a really short memory.

However, that little bit of lost memory was about the time she was broken to the point that no one could help her.

That was why, with her self-preservation instincts, she locked up those memories.

And then, thanks to losing that, Nana had grown up to be the cheerful Nana she was now.

「Fue….Rin-chan….?」

「That’s right, you sleepy head」

「You sure are early.
I thought you would arrive at night」

The time Nana woke up, she said that in such a floaty tone that I couldn’t feel a single particle of her head working.

She was shaking her head to fight away the sleepiness.
That appearance of hers was just like an animal, and because she sank into the sofa, you could tell that she was about to lose to the sleepiness, which was really cute.

「Rather, I returned late, you know?」

「Nu?」

「I’m not early, Nana just slept too much.
More than a day, you know?」

As I said that, Nana picked up her phone from the floor, and seeing the home screen, I saw her eyes widen a bit.

But it seemed it was not that much of a shock, as she once again collapsed on the sofa and used my lap as a pillow.

「Since I slept, it can’t be helped….」

「Well, that’s true, but-」

「And so, one more time….zzz.」

It seemed that she was that tired.
I brushed Nana’s hair as she slept again for the second time in an instant.

Nana was seeking sleep, so it meant that there was something where she had to sleep to recover.

I thought that it wasn’t a problem with her body, so just as I thought, there was probably something that had put a burden on her mentally.

For now, I should contact Touka regarding Nana’s safety, and then I also entrusted my body to sleepiness.

Unlike Nana, who had monster-like stamina, I was a proper indoors person.
And because I was woken by Touka so early in the morning, I was sleepy too, and then there was Naan, who was sleeping so well right in front of me, which made me even more sleepy.

There was a bit of anxiety regarding it, but as of right now, it was advancing smoothly.

While putting my expectations on the girl who had finally gotten near opening the door to her memory, I slowly entrusted my body to the invading sleepiness.
