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.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

farziex3: I think this novel is perfect because it had erotic, romance, and towards the end was a twist so I was just on the edge of my seat reading this book. It was honestly really amazing. I haven't found a book I actually liked to read for almost 2-3 years and this was a great book to start off. Makes ...

Dimplz: Severitus stories (Snape is Harry's Father/Guardian/Mentor) are a staple in the fandom and the quality of these stories vary wildly.. This was an absolute gem to read. The characters were excellently written and the story was very heartfelt.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Bboyjoon: A brilliant but unsettling story about 5 murders committed by a serial killer. This novel scared me a little bit and I have to commend you for being able to do that. I wanted to know if you’ve actually met a serial killer before. I mean the way you’ve described the mind of a psychopath is extreme...

Alex Reltin: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story. There isn't much more I can say about this other than amazing! Are there going to be anymore updates any time soon?I also Vote...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

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...
