Finding Airi

*Finding Airi*

Yuuna: *Walking down the street* The streets sure are empty today... Then again, it is perfect weather for the beach... And it is a holiday... *Stops* Hm?

Little girl: .... *Hides in an alley*

Yuuna: ... *Goes over* ... Hello there.

Little girl: !!!! *Jumps in surprise*

Yuuna: Oh my! I didn’t mean to alert you little one. *Eyes widen* You look horrible... Did something happen? *Holds out a hand*

Little girl: Xon’h houyt pe! (Don’t touch me!)

Yuuna: !?!?!?! That’s..... *Clears her throat* I’p jokkc wok alekhinv cou htah. (I’m sorry for alerting you like that.)

Little girl: ....? Cou unxekjhanx pe? (You understand me?)

Yuuna: Cej. Leh pe telm cou. I rnof fto ho vo ho. (Yes. Let me help you. I know who to go to.)

Little girl: .... *Nods*

*At the police station*

Policeman: Hello there...

Little girl: *Hides behind Yuuna*

Policeman: Hm? Who is this?

Yuuna: I don’t know. However, she does not speak Japanese, so I will act as an translator.

Policeman: What do you mean?

Policewoman: Isn’t it obvious? This young lady found this child on the streets. Look at the state the poor girl is in.

Yuuna: You are quite right.

*The two are lead into a room, after a while, a doctor comes in*

Doctor: Hm... *Goes towards the little girl*

Little girl: !!!! *Hides*

Doctor: Oh my...

Yuuna: Let me help. *Goes over to the little girl* Ih ij alkivth, te ij a xoyhok, te ij onlc teke ho yteyr couk tealht. (It is alright, he is a doctor, he is only here to check your health.)

Little girl: .... *Shakes her head* I xon’h fanh tip ho houyt pe... (I don’t want him to touch me...)

Yuuna: *Nods and turns to the doctor* She doesn’t want you touching her, I’m sorry but, could you wait a moment?

Doctor: Maybe if we talked with you as a translator it’ll be better. I need to check her health.

Yuuna: .... I’ll ask. *Turns to the little girl* Iw cou halr ho tip fiht pe aj a hkanjlahok, fill cou keyonjixek? (If you talk to him with me as a translator, will you reconsider?)

Little girl: *Shakes head*

Yuuna: *Sighs and turns to the doctor* I’m afraid she’s too scared at the moment, is it possible for you to tell me what to look for and I tell you what I find?

Doctor: I’m afraid not. However, I think the first thing we should do is make her more comfortable and less scared.

Little girl: *Stomache growls*

Doctor: *Chuckles* First step, we get her some food. We can prepare some toast and jam to give her. Once she gets some food in her belly, she might be more willing to let me give her a check up since she’ll feel better.

Yuuna: I see.

*Toast is put in front of the Little girl*

Little girl: .... *Nibbles the toast, before eating it whole heartedly*

Yuuna: *Smiles* Ij ih voox? (Is it good?)

Little girl: *Nods*

Yuuna: Ftah ij couk nape? (What is your name?)

Little girl: .... I xon’h kepepzek... (I don’t remember...)

Yuuna: ... I jee.... Htah ij unwokhunahe. (I see... That is unfortunate.)

Little girl: *Nods* .... *Points to the toast* I loge ftah ij on htij... Ih hajhej voox! (I love what is on this... It tastes good!)

Yuuna: I zeliege htah ij Pear Jam. Ih ij quihe momulak lahelc. (I believe that is pear jam. It is quite popular lately.)

Little girl: Pear.... Jam...?

Yuuna: *Nods*

Little girl: ..... Ftah ij couk nape? (What is your name?)

Yuuna: Yuuna Nishimura.

Little girl: ..... Yan cou telm pe ytooje a nef nape? (Can you help me choose a new name?)

Yuuna: Cou juke cou fanh a nef nape? (You sure you want a new name?)

Little girl: *Nods*

Yuuna: *Gets up and walks up to the Policewoman* Excuse me, you wouldn’t happen to have a book of names would you?

Policewoman: Huh? Why?

Yuuna: That little girl doesn’t remember her’s.

Policewoman: Huh?! She has amniesia?!

Yuuna: Before you do anything, we must make her comfortable, she’s still scared. She wants a new name, so...

Policewoman: I see... I’ll go check and see if we have any books.

Avell Kro: I've only just started reading this, but I can see that this writer really knows her stuff. Her theme is painful and traumatic, and her sense of place is deep and strong.

Mary Abigail: I have always been a serious reader but reading romance has always been an outlet for me to be happy and this, makes me happy. It's entertaining with just enough drama and maybe a bit more - I do need more.

Wilbur Jasin: I liked the book. The story is great. The author really did some quite research to come up with something like this. The book needs some editing but otherwise, it's a great read. Can't wait for the second book.

Nida Bhounr: the novel was a very typical and clichéd plot boy meets girls , impregnates her and leaves her because of prior commitments then they meet up again. but nonetheless it was very nicely written. it was very typical but i liked it.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Colin Milroy: To begin, I don't think that the first review of this story was fair at all. Based on the popularity of this story, I would say the one-star review hasn't done much harm, but I still felt the need to address it. Now I will do my best to be constructive.I liked the concept of this story. I found i...
