■ Suzu’s Dream

Yoru, Tomosu

I hear the sound of a record. A sign that I’m a little closer to the classroom I’m heading to.

What’s today’s song?… Aah, this is “Black Hair.”

A song she once told me she liked.

Soon we’ll have time alone together, the sound is drawing closer and closer.

Heavy breath. Flushed cheeks. This heartbeat is not simply due to the running.

I don’t even want to take the time outside the door to catch my breath, so I open it like I’m running through a finish line…

Sorry to keep you waiting, older sister.

I reach my hands out toward her silhouette as the light shines behind her…

■ Character

Sayoko (voiced by Hisako Tojo)

Yoru, Tomosu

A beautiful woman with black hair who appears in Suzu’s dreams as her “older sister.” In those dreams, Suzu often sees her playing the koto by the window, and while she is the spitting image of Yuuka, her expressions and tone are kinder and warmer. She seems to be in a classroom in Kagurahara Girls Academy, but Suzu does not recognize her uniform. What is the connection between Sayoko and Suzu…?
