“Kouta! Wake up, man! You’ve been passed out since the plane took off!”
Someone shook me, trying to get me to wake up.
My head felt heavy like lead, as I opened my eyes, who did I see but my best friend Yasuhiro’s face.
“yaaaawn, mornin’. Did you… call me Kouta?”
“Hey man, you feeling alright? It’s the start of our school trip today, get yourself together.”
“Our… school trip?”
As I glanced around me I noticed my classmates in their seats having friendly discussions while an in-flight announcement played.
Yasuhiro started opening the brochure for our school trip and asked where we should explore.
“What should we do during our free time? There’s so many sightseeing spots it’s kinda troubling”
“It’s all the same to me. Why don’t you take the chance to confess to her? Tell Fukuhara you like her you know?”
“Wai… How do you know about that! I haven’t told anyone! Are you some sorta psychic!?”
Huh? I wonder, how did I know Yasuhiro liked her.
I don’t have any recollection of Yasuhiro telling me directly, I feel like I’m forgetting something important here.
I frantically tried to remember, at the point that I got a sharp headache I felt a deep haze come over me.
“Hey Kouta, hasn’t that older foreign chick across the aisle been checking you out for a while now?”
In the seat where Yasuhiro was pointing, sure enough, there was a foreign girl with her gaze fixed on me.
Long silver-colored hair, with her body clad in knightly armor, surely she’s some sorta cosplayer huh.
“When I grow up I’d like to get to know that lady over some alcohol. Are you involved with her, Kouta?”
“Naw, I have no idea who she is. But… I feel like I’ve met her somewhere before”
“That deja vu thing huh? Try putting the moves on her eh, whatcha got to lose.”
Yasuhiro gave my back a shove. As I looked across at the foreign girl I saw her bashfully stiffen up.
“…I’ve finally found you, let’s go back together.”
“I’m Schenna Urablatt. I’ve been waiting to bring you back.”
This girl calling herself Schenna pulled me by the hand into her chest.
All of a sudden a bunch of turbulence hit the plane and I started seeing smoke and flames pour up from under my feet.
The path of the flames cut me off from Yasuhiro who was still on the other side of the aisle.
“You shouldn’t die here. We’ll be going back to the other world with that guy.”
“What are you even saying! We’re not together.”
As I called out to my best friend in intense grief, the flames picked up even more, wrapping themselves around the entire plane.
“I’ll be waiting for you on the other side. You… are Schenna.” As Yasuhiro kept speaking, his voice transformed into the gentle voice of a woman. As his voice cut off, everything came back to me.
Kouta was wrapped up in light and absorbed into Schenna’s body as his consciousness cleared up and returned to normal.
Reflected in my eyes were the figures of Kishana and Luthors. It was at this point I first realized that Schenna had managed to survive from the throes of death.
