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.

MissMadokaKaname: I was impressed and moved by this work. The characterization and dialog were strong, and really brought everyone in the story to life. Also, the setting was handled in a believable and compelling way. The story captured the complexities and pain of love, and also the harshness of living in such b...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

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...

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

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.

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...

RodRaglin: Your writing is very good, Rachel, but remember you also have to entertain the reader and in that regard it's a bit sparse in action and dialogue.Consider when revising...When starting a new story always consider your protagonist's Goal - what they want; Motivation - why they want it; and, Confli...

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...
