"Good work today." Your coworkers greet you on your way out of your work.Once again, it was another work day completed. "Good work, I'll see you all tomorrow." Today was different. Usually, you took the evening shift for the restaurant you worked at. However, today, you absolutely had no leave by 5 PM. It was her death anniversary after all. You had to visit her grave.Getting out of the restaurant, you go into your car. Thankfully, her grave wasn't too far from where you worked, and by extension, from where you lived. It took a twenty minute drive to arrive at the grave of your wife."Yo! Mari." You greet your wife as you clean her gravestone. "It's been awhile huh? Well, not really. I was here two weeks ago too huh?" Talking to her like that made you feel at ease. It put your heart at peace.Once you clean her gravestone, you lay the flowers and chocolates you bought for her on her grave. It's been quite some time since you lost her, but still, you just felt like you didn't want to forget her. That seeing another woman would make the time you spent with Mari invalid and a lie.Sure, your friends and your parents have tried to set you up with different women, but none of them made your heart race quite like Mari. "By the way, I came up with a new recipe today... I think it's pretty good but I don't really have anyone to test it on. I wish you were still here."
>>1358964To some people, a man in his late twenties talking to a grave must've been a pretty weird sight. However, you didn't mind as you stayed and spend time with Mari just talking about whatever came to your mind for a good two hours.When your stomach starts to grumble, that was when you decided to go home. "Ah, sorry Mari. I think I'll have to leave for tonight. I'll come by again soon."Packing up and cleaning up any mess you made at her gravestone, you head back to the parking lot and you drive back to your apartment.The apartment building you lived in was your typical apartment building. It was five stories high and each floor had multiple apartment rooms. It wasn't fancy or flashy, but it wasn't dilapitated either. It was completely mediocre.As you park your car and head inside you saw the for sale sign at the front of the apartment building now has a sold sticker over it. "They finally sold it huh..."Continuing on, you head to your apartment at the top of the building, on the fifth floor. Everything was normal, everything was the same as always. Except for one thing. In the middle of the narrow hallway was a young, teenaged girl. She was sitting on the floor on the floor of the narrow hallway with her head buried in between her knees. "Hmm... I haven't seen her before... Is she the daughter of the new tenant?" [ ] Introduce yourself.[ ] She didn't seem like she was in the mood for introductions.[ ] Write-in
>She didn't seem like she was in the mood for introductions
This shit just stopped before it started.
Introduce. Curious as to where this will go
'I guess I should introduce myself. After all she is a new neighbour.' It was only normal for neighbours to introduce themselves. It was only natural. However, as you walk closer to the girl, you soon realize that she probably wasn't in the mood for introductions. Bending down to take a closer look, you saw that her eyes was closed, and you heard her steady and deep breathing. What really gave it away however was some drool dripping out of the corner of her mouth. 'Ah... She is asleep...' You didn't want to wake her since she seemed quite tired, so you ultimately decide to save your introduction for another time.Slowly, you stand up, trying your best not to make a single noise. Then, you walk past the sleeping girl to get in front of your apartment's front door. Before you enter your apartment, you take another quick glance at her.As you stand there, right in front of your apartment, you couldn't help but smile to yourself. 'Ah... This is probably the most exciting thing to happen to me in a while...' It spoke volumes as to how uneventful your life has become ever since your wife passed away. Finding what looked like a high schooler in the hallway of your apartment building was the most exciting thing you can remember for the past few months.Finally, you decide to go inside your apartment. You unlock your front door and the moment you open it, you heard it. You heard what sounded like a sniffing sound. 'What the hell is that?' You thought to yourself. After your initial surprise, you look over the source of the sound, to find the sleeping girl sniffing the air. Then, she stands up, like a mummy being woken from it's slumber. She turns her head towards you as she kept sniffing the air. She looked like a dog following a scent trail. You stand there, frozen with curiosity as to what exactly she was doing. You couldn't help but watch as she slowly walk towards your apartment.
>>1359731"Hi I'm [Name here] How are you doing? and what are you doing?"
>>1359731Slowly, she walks closer and closer to you. Step by step, she closes the distance separating you from her. However, when she got close enough, you notice that her eyes were still closed. 'Eh? Is she sleep walking?' Then, just mere moments after you realize that she was still asleep, you realize one more thing."W-Wait! Watch out! You are about to trip on that car-" Unfortunately it was too late. By the time you realized she was still fast asleep, she has already tripped on carpet between your apartment and the apartment she was sleeping in front of. "pet..." The girl falls face first onto the carpet. She remains motionless for a few seconds. It was long enough to get you a bit worried. "Umm... Are you okay?" You call out to her.She responds almost immediately. "Yes. I'm okay."You breathe a sigh of relief. "Ah, thank goodness. You are sure you aren't hurt anywhere right?""Y-Yeah... I'm sure." She answers you, her face still hidden as she is still lying face down into the carpet. Finally, she picks herself up from the floor. Standing up in front of you, she starts to dust herself off. Her face was still quite red. However, you weren't sure whether it was from the fall or from her just being embarrassed. When she finishes dusting herself off, she calls out to you. "What did you think of it?""Hmm? What do you mean? You give her a look of confusion."Y-You know... My introduction. I tried to go for more of a comedic impact with falling down like that." She looks up to you, her eyes filled with both embarrassment and hope. Embarrassed that her first impression with her neighbor seemed to have gone awry. Hope because she really wished you would buy her lie of practicing that introduction. "I-It took a while to practice that, I hope you liked it!"[ ] Write-in
>>1359765In a posh voice you say the following "Well the execution was rather flawed but the concept itself was brilliant!" All the while you twirl an imaginary mustache
>>1359774Should've gotten here sooner, but this
Seeing as how she was embarrassed enough, you decide to play along with her. "Well..." You tell her. "The execution was rather flawed but the concept itself was brilliant! It really did make a great impact!" You give her a thumbs up.She gives you a look of confusion. "R-Really?" It was like she never expected that excuse to work."Mhmm." You nod towards her."Then... Thank goodness..." You hear her sigh in relief. Then, after she tries to bluff her way through her blunder, she gives you a smile. "By the way, I'm Holly. I'm going to be moving next door.""Holly?" You would've never guessed she was a foreigner just from looking at her. "Yep." The girl smiles at you. "How about you?""Ah, where are my manners." You smile as you stick out your hand for a handshake. "I'm Kobayashi Jin, but you can call me Jin.""Eh... So you're Jin huh..." Holly says with curiosity as she stares at your right hand waiting for her handshake.. "Nice to meet you Jin!" Then, to your surprise, she completely ignores your handshake and instead gives you a hug."Umm..." It's been awhile since you've had someone embrace you like that. It was definitely something that caught you off-guard. "Holly... What are you doing exactly?""Me?" She says in a confused tone. For her, she probably isn't doing anything wrong. "Yeah... Why are you hugging me?""Oh, I'm doing this instead of the handshake. I don't really like handshakes too much so, I hope this is okay."Whether it was okay or not, it was too late now. You now had a high schooler firmly embracing you out in the open. 'Crap... If any of the other apartment tenants sees this what am I going to do? How am I going to explain having such a young girl cling onto me...' There was no mistake about it. They'll definitely think you are compensating her. Although it was pretty nice, you also had your reputation to worry about. "I don't mind it, but I think this is too much for our first meeting." You gently push her away."Eh... Really?" She tilts her head in confusion. Foreigners really are quite bold after all. Holly is no different. Then, you hear what sounded like a stomach grumbling.
>>1360098You look for the source of the grumbling but it was quite obvious where it was coming from. Holly has become silent, putting her arms over her stomach as if she is trying to hide the noise. After her stomach grumbles again the second time, you finally call out to her. "Holly... By any chance... When was the last time you had a meal?""A meal? Oh... I had breakfast..." She whispers in an embarrassed tone."You haven't eaten lunch or dinner yet?"She shakes her head. "The landlord isn't here yet so I haven't been able to pick up the keys to my apartment. There are also the moving guys coming so I can't leave the apartment building..." That was when you realized why she woke up after you opened your door. She must've smelled the lingering smell of food inside your house. "I see." You tell Holly.[ ] "Then... Since you can't leave the building, do you want to have dinner with me?" Invite her over. You are a chef so you had complete confidence in your cooking.[ ] "Then... Since you can't go too far from the building, I can tell you something nice. There's a convenience store near this place."

"Then..." You tell Holly. "Do you want to join me for dinner? You can't leave the building so but it should be fine if you just go to my apartment right?"Immediately, Holly's eyes widen with excitement and surprise. "Is it... Is it okay?""Of course. I may not look like it but I'm a chef you know. Plus, think of this as me welcoming a new neighbor." You give her a smile."Then! I'll take you up on your offer!" Holly says with a smile. After she accepts, she follows you inside your apartment. "Sorry, it is a bit messy. I haven't had the chance to clean.""You don't have a wife?" Holly asks you out of curiosity. "Or girlfriend I guess.""Hmm... I used to." You tell her. "But she passed away."She immediately becomes silent. Then, she bows to you in apology. "Ah, sorry Jin. I didn't mean to.""Don't worry about it." You smile at her. "Anyway, come in, you can rest in the living room for now. I'll call you when dinner is done.""Okay~" Holly playfully gives you a salute and a smile before happily following you to your living room.>cont.
>>1361040It's been awhile since you've cooked for someone you personally know. It's been even longer since you've shared dinner with someone else.When you get to the kitchen, you were in your element. You've cooked for as long as you can remember. Moving in the kitchen was as natural as breathing to you. "Hmm... Let's see... What can I make for her?"You think about it for a bit. The best dish to make a growing young lady. "Ah, I guess that'll do."As you continue to cook, Holly eventually finds her way into the kitchen. "I got bored waiting there... I want to watch you cook instead.""Sure, take a seat." You were quite proud of your skills and you weren't afraid to show off once in a while.As she watches you cook, you talk about any thing that came into your mind with Holly. "So Holly, you just moved here right? Where were you originally from?""Me? I am from a small town further up north." Holly answers you as she rocks back and forth on one of your chairs at your dining table. "Really?" You were surprised. You really did think that she was a foreigner. From the way she acted, and her name. "So you aren't a foreigner then?""Foreigner?" Holly suddenly gets a look of nervousness in her eyes. She even masks her nervousness with a laugh. "Why would you think that?""Well, your name for one. But I guess your parents could've just given you a foreign sounding name..." Then, you continue to your next point. "But you did act weird, giving me a hug instead of a handshake. That stuck out to me as something a foreigner would do.""Really? I thought it was pretty normal..." Her eyes nervously shift from left to right. It wasn't long until Holly finally cracks however. "A-Alright... Maybe, I do have a little bit of foreign blood in me..." You found it weird that Holly was being so secretive about it. You found it weird that she was trying to hide it. "I see. That's pretty cool! There's no need to hide it you know." Seeing as how she was nervous, you try and ease Holly a bit. "So, is it your mom or dad who is from a foreign country?""My mom." Holly whispers to you, her voice still had a tone of hesitation in it."Where is she from?""Hmm... Before I answer that, can I ask you a personal question first Jin?" "Sure." You tell Holly."S-Succubi... What do you think of them?"[ ] Write-in
>>1361070Aren't those a fairy tale?
>>1361070Succubi are for Gaijins, Holly.
>>1361070"I've never really thought much about them before." This is lie. When you were much younger you were into weeb shit like that.
>>1361197this then asked why she wished to know what our opinion was about succubi
Succubi. Are. For. Gaijaboos. Holly.
>>1361197This quest is too anime to not be in japan.Her nervousness about being part foreigner doesn't make that much sense anywhere else either.How can a nip be a weeb

>>1362178FILTHY GAIJIN THOUGHTS GET OUTWRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Are you going to kill her off in the second thread like QuestMM did?
"Succubi?" You look at Holly with a confused look. "Yeah." You didn't really know much about them. Most of what you knew about them were from what you've read on net back when you were younger. "Aren't those a fairty tale?" "Not at all!" Holly snaps at you. Then, she digs through her pocket. Then, she takes out what looked like a pink wallet with a cat keychain hanging off it. From her wallet, she takes out what looked like an ID. "See!" She then holds up the ID as if she was trying to show you something on it.The ID looked similar to a license. It had a picture of her in a middle school uniform. She looked much younger in the picture. Then, on the other side of the picture was a bunch of information like her full name, her height, her weight, etc.The first odd thing you noticed however was the title of the title of the ID she was showing you at the top.'M.G. card - Monster Girl Immigration Act? What is that?' You thought to yourself.Then, right beside the information that had "Sex: F" was an entry that said. "Type: Succubi/Succubus">cont.
>>1362797Finally, you realize is. "Ah... You must be one of those demi-humans they were talking about in the news..."Holly suddenly gets a proud look on her face. "That's right! I am!"You try and remember the last demi-human you saw on TV. "So... You're like that demi-human idol Ai then right?""Ai?" One of Holly's eyebrows raises for a bit while trying to remember who you were talking about. "Oh, that idol. Kind of, but not exactly. I'm a proud succubus, but she is just a half-wolf.""I see..." Although you've heard of demi-humans or monster girls before, this is the first time you've actually seen one. "So you're a succubus huh..." You scan Holly from head to toe."Mhmm!" She says proudly. She was definitely different from the succubus you know. Although Holly was fit, she didn't have very much curves. Her chest was quite flat. Her hips was nothing to write home about. In fact, she looked just like a normal girl. "I'm pretty sexy aren't I?" She looks at you trying her best to give you a seductive smile.After you quickly examine her, you let out a sigh. "Hmm, I would say you are quite youthful." "Youthful...?" It took her a bit of time to realize what you had just said. "Ah! That's just another way of calling me childish isn't it? You don't believe that I"m a succubus do you?""Sorry." You apologize to her. "It's just you are so different from the image of a succubus in my mind."Holly looked a bit angry, but she knew she couldn't convince you unless she proves to you that she was a succubus otherwise. "Hmm... Then, do you want to take a bet?" Holly's lips curl into a mischievous, cat-like smile. "I'll prove to you that I really do have a succubus' seductive powers. What do you say Jin?"[ ] Write-in

>>1362800Nah. We have food to eat.
>>1362800>"haha, sure Holly, whatever you say, go ahead">ruffle her hair>get back to cooking
Seeing her so ready to defend her seductiveness, you couldn't help but smile a bit. "Sure Holly." You had to try your hardest to keep your laughter inside. "Whatever you say, go ahead." When she saw you just dismissing her like that, Holly jumps out of the dining room chair and walks over to you with angry footsteps. "Ah! You aren't taking me seriously! You don't believe me do you?""I kind of do... It's just you know... It's hard to believe, since you look so..." Once again you try your best to describe her apperance but only one word came to your mind. "You look so... Young?" When she pouts starts to pout, you couldn't help yourself. You put your hand on her hair and you start to ruffle her hair, messing it up a bit. Unfortunately, the moment you touch her head, you felt it. 'Eh... What is this feeling... Why am I... Why does Holly look so...' You felt your heart racing in your chest. It's been awhile but you felt the familiar feeling of blood rushing to your cheeks as if your blushing. 'Why does Holly look so erotic...'>cont.
>>1363793She didn't look different from before. In fact, with her pouting face, she looked more childish than ever. However, at that moment, at the time, you felt it. Although you haven't felt that feeling in a long time, you still definitely remember it from when Mari was alive. 'A-Am I actually turned on by this girl?!'You start to panic. You didn't know what to do. Through instincts you immediately pull back your hand from Holly's head. Then, you try your best to calm yourself down as best as possible. 'Y-You can't... She is too young for you... You can't do this!' You take deep breaths over and over again to try and calm yourself down.>Can you guys roll a 1d20?

You take deep breaths. In your head, you count them down one by one. "9... 10..."Thankfully, your deep breathing helped a lot to calm yourself down. After you took your hand off Holly's head, and once your count reaches 10 deep breaths, you were able to calm down without too much incident afterward.'Thank god...' Once your heart calms down and the feeling of being excited has passed, you look towards Holly again."Are you okay Jin?" She had a look of worry on her face."Yeah, I'm okay." You felt relief, as those indecent thoughts, those indecent impulses seemed to have left your body completely. "Thanks for worrying about me." "Thank goodness..." Holly breathes a sigh of relief. "I probably should've told you about making skin contact with me." She lets out a small laugh. "My dad told me to try and avoid skin contact with men as much as possible since it gets them excited."The image of Holly refusing your handshake and instead opting for an embrace, where any skin is covered by clothing, pops into your head. "That... That probably would've been nice to know yes..." "Sorry." Holly tells you. "It kinda just slipped my mind." Then, her cheeks starts to blush. "Plus... It felt kinda nice you know... You patting my head like that.">cont.
>>1363968"I'm glad you enjoyed it... But that kind of excitement... It's too dangerous for my heart." You take one last deep breath to completely calm yourself down. You could only imagine what it was like for her father when he first discovered that aspect of Holly."Eh... But it's the first time I've had my head patted in a while! Even my dad won't make skin contact with me..." Holly starts to sound disappointed. "But Jin, you were surprisingly resistant to it.""Was I?" You were surprised. You didn't think you were resistant to it at all."Mhmm! Out of the people who I have accidentally made skin contact with... You are one of the only two people that kept their composure!" Holly gives you a thumbs up as if she was praising you. "Good job Jin!"However, her statement just raised more questions than it answered. "I'm one of the better ones? Do I even want to know what the other ones tried to do to you?""Ah, it's fine. I'm ready for when I mess up and accidentally make skin contact. I always carry self-defense weapons on me!" Her smile reaches from ear to ear as she imitates motions like she is taking off one strap of her backpack and swinging it in front of her. "I always keep them here!" When she tries to reach into the air to try and unzip her phantom backpack, that was when she realized it. "Wait... I don't have them right now! That's right! They are with the movers right now!" Holly gasps in shock."She is... She is pretty clumsy..." You sigh to yourself.>cont.
>>1363999"Anyway, that's not important. You didn't even seem affected by skin contact with me!" Holly's eyes start to sparkle in excitement. "Maybe... Maybe you are immune to me Jin! That would be amazing if you were immune to me!""Really?""Mhmm! Of course! That means you'll view me just as a normal girl!" She takes a deep breath as she sighs out excitedly. "I can have a normal relationship with you... Maybe you can even be a big brother to me!" Holly looked quite excited and happy that it was hard to tell her the truth. However, you were soon given the opportunity to do so. "You were alright when I touched you right Jin?"[ ] Write-in

"Well... Not entirely..." You try and tell her. "It was a pretty weird experience but thankfully I was able to overcome it." You take a deep breath. "R-Really?" Holly starts to look a bit guilty."Yeah, so it would probably be wise not to tempt fate. If you want a normal relationship though, then I don't mind it." You didn't know what it was with Holly, but somehow she had the kind of feeling about her that made you want to protect her. "If you want a big brother kind of figure, then I don't mind.""Really?!" This time, her eyes widen with excitement. "You don't mind?""Nope.""Then... It's a deal! I'll be your cute little sister, and you can be my reliable older brother!""Sounds good." With that decided you go back to cooking some food for her."That means I can come over everyday for dinner right? It'll probably get lonely eating by myself." Holly tilts her head left and right with happiness.You take a deep breath. You didn't know whether or not you were making the right decision. However, she was right. It does get lonely eating alone. "Sure, I'll cook for you anytime.""Yay~" Holly yells out loud in celebration.>cont.
>>1364724As you cook, Holly just watches you. While you cooked, the two of you talked to each other like you would talk to Mari.Whatever came to her mind, or your mind, the two of you would talk about. You would ask her what your hobbies were, and she would ask you what you did for fun. You asked her what types of food she likes, and she asks you what it felt like when you touched her.Although you only met her today, Holly was incredibly easy to talk to and time flew by as the two of you conversed. Before you knew it, you finished cooking and your conversations continue on through dinner."So you said you were going to debut tomorrow right? Debut as a high schooler?""Ah, yes, I am!""Then... Are you nervous? I mean, you are moving to a new school right?"Holly thinks about it for a bit. Then, she gave the answer you thought she would give. "I think as long as I smile and be friendly, I'll be okay.""I see." You couldn't help but smile at her answer. "Anyway, I wish you luck! You only have a half day tomorrow right?""Mhmm. I'm only there until after the entrance ceremony, after that I think we are free to go wherever.""I see, then if you want and you have time, you can stop by the family restaurant I work in. It's Benny's by the train station. It'll be my treat tomorrow.""Really? You would treat me?""Of course. It's only natural for me to congratulate you right? I mean as an older brother.""I'll definitely be there!" She looks at you with a determined look.>cont.

Then I'll meet you at my apartment!"Holly looked happy and excited as she hangs up the phone. "I have to go Jin. The landlord is here with the movers.""Finally able to get into your apartment huh?""Mhmm. Anyway, thanks for the meal!" Holly waves goodbye to you."Good luck again tomorrow! And welcome to the neighbourhood!""Thanks! I'll see you tomorrow!" As Holly leaves, your house becomes quiet again. The same silence that has kept you company since Mari died returns. However, you start to feel a new feeling.'Hmm... What should I cook for Holly tomorrow?' You start to look forward to the next day.>Chapter End.

After Holly leaves, the only thing left was to clean up the kitchen and wash the dishes. However, before you get to cleaning up, you decide to call your boss."Hello?""Ah, hey boss, it's me Jin.""Jin! Good evening. It's rare for you to call me this late. What did you need?""Tomorrow, is it okay if I take another morning shift?""Morning shift?" Your boss was surprised at your request."Yeah, I have an appointment again in the evening so I can't work the night shift. Is that okay?""Yeah, that's okay. I'm just surprised that are taking another morning shift. Anyway, that should be fine. I'll see you tomorrow Jin.""Good night boss."
You were having a peaceful dream when you suddenly hear the sharp noise of your alarm clock. Slowly, you are pulled away from your slumber. "That's right... I took the morning shift again today."After you stretch and scratch your eyes, you sit up on your bed. Looking around, it was still dark. "Time to get ready for work." Getting out of bed, the first place you visited was the bathroom.You brush your teeth, then you get into the shower. After your shower, you head back to your bedroom to change into jeans and some sweatshirt. "Hmm, do I have a change of clothes at the restaurant? I should bring some just in case." Taking some extra clothes, you put them into your small backpack before going downstairs to cook some breakfast.It felt like a typical day for you, but at the same time it felt different. "Hmm, I wonder why..." You certainly were curious as to why today felt different.Once you finish your bacon and eggs, you take two plates from your cabinet. Cutting off a small piece of your egg and a small piece of bacon, you put them on one plate, while putting the rest on the other. Then, you take the plate with the small portion of the egg and bacon and you put it at your wife's memorial shrine in your house. "Good morning Mari! Here's your breakfast today."After lighting some incense for your wife, you go back to the dining table and you start to eat your breakfast. "Thanks for the food." It was a typical morning for you. It was your routine that you have gotten used to.However, there was one thing that was different. Out of the corner of your eye you saw someone pass by your front window. "Eh... Is that Holly? What is she doing up so early?" Looking at the clock in your living room, it wasn't even 7 AM yet. She still had at least a couple of hours before school started. What was even more suspicious about it was that she wasn't wearing a school uniform. She was wearing a baggy hooded sweatshirt, and a baseball cap with her hair in a ponytail. 'Where is she going?'>cont.
>>1374497Your curiosity eventually gets the better of you. "I should greet her good morning." Maybe, you could even tempt her with some breakfast.As quick as you could, you go to your front door and quickly call out to Holly before she leaves. "Holly! Good morning."Thankfully, Holly hears you calling out to her. "Ah, good morning Jin." When you saw how sweaty she was, you already had an idea where she has just been."Did you just go for a run?""I did." Holly nods to you with a smile. She was surprisingly energetic so early in the morning. Usually, high schoolers didn't really like mornings, or at least you did't like mornings. "A healthy body houses a healthy mind after all!""Hmm, that's good! Exercise is good for the body." You give her a thumbs up. Although you haven't really exercised very much at all for the past couple of years. You start to wonder what Holly would think if she found out."It is! You should come join me some time!""Maybe next time." You tell Holly. "For now though I have to go to work soon.""Work?" Holly starts to look deep in thought to try and remember your work. "You said you worked as a chef at a family restaurant right?""I did." You give her a smile. "You'll still be coming after your entrance ceremony right?" Thanks to you reminding her, she remembers your invitation to her yesterday. "Ah, that's right. I will be checking it out today!" She starts to look excited. In fact she starts to salivate. "I get to eat Jin's cooking again... I get to taste Jin's cooking again..." Before she gets too deep into her fantasies about eating your food, you snap her out of it."Hey Holly, have you had breakfast yet?"Just a simple question was enough to snap her out of her daze. "Breakfast? Oh, no not yet.""Really? Then, do you want to join me for breakfast?"You were certain that she was going to say yes for sure, but to your surprise, she hesitates. "Hmm... I don't know if I should get spoiled this much... I already ate your cooking yesterday for dinner, then I'll be eating it for lunch and dinner today... Maybe I should cook you breakfast?""Do you know how to cook?" You ask her in surprise. She didn't seem the cooking type to you."Of course! In fact, I'll impress you with my breakfast! What do you say Jin? Do you want to taste a cute, high school girl's cooking?"[ ] Write-in
