Chapter 24: Souta Shibuya Speaks with Yukina
Akane’s voice echoes into the air.
Akane: “Yeah…...huh? Really?”
Akane is speaking with someone.
Someone I can’t see.
Akane: “What? REALLY?! That’s terrible!”
Akane holds her hands over her mouth in surprise.
What? Akane: “Souta! Yukina is saying that Touru got abducted!”
The words that came out of Akane’s mouth went beyond all of my wildest expectations.
So to summarize what Akane said...
Lately, Yukina has taken up the hobby of floating around the city.
…….so that’s what she was up to…
And because no one could see Yukina, she went to areas normal high school girls wouldn’t go to like the red light district and dark alleyways.
And it happened yesterday.
During the night, there was an incident where several drunks got violent and destroyed the interior of a restaurant.
I knew about that incident because it came up on the news.
I thought the police came immediately and settled the situation.
Because the people who were rampaging were also spouting indecipherable nonsense, the TV Newscaster suspected drugs to be involved.
I remember my sister saying how scary that was while we were eating breakfast.
But the problem came after this.
Apparently, Yukina was there at the scene of the crime.
And Touru as well.
Why was he there……..? I suspected that it was because of the [work] he was doing lately.
But still, that’s a really dangerous situation to get caught up in.
While Yukina was making sure the person she recognized was okay, it was apparent that Touru was secretly following someone.
Becoming curious, Yukina followed after him.
As a Ghost, it was easy to trail Touru.
No one would recognize her.
But Touru was recognized by the people he was following.
And after he was caught, he was taken away by a group of very suspicious people……..this is all according to Yukina.
Souta: “........Akane, what do you think about that story?” I tried to imply with my voice that it was absurd beyond believing.
It would be the plot of a B-Rated movie.
Akane: “I don’t know……..Touru is the heir to the [True Sun Church], and he’s been investigating a suspicious [cult group], so it’s possible……”
Her brows furrow as she thinks more deeply.
Huh? What? There’s no way that story could be factual, right? We were just at Touru’s house a second ago, right? If he was abducted, how would the Sister be so calm when we came? Akane: “There’s a good chance that Sister didn’t know about the abduction too.”
Souta: “Even still……”
I take out my phone and type [Where are you right now?] in a Line message.
He hasn’t read any of my previous messages.
Is it because he was abducted?
Wait, wait, wait…...there’s no way……...right?
Souta: “Besides, if he was abducted yesterday, why didn’t Yukina tell us sooner? Isn’t that strange? Her timing of telling us right now wouldn’t make sense.”
Akane: “Yukina, why did you wait to tell us? ……...oh, uh huh…..I see……”
Yukina is apparently responding to my doubts, but I can’t hear her.
Ugh, this is such a pain.
Akane: “She said that she was following after the group to see where they took Touru. So she knows where Touru is being held right now.”
Souta: “Ah, thーthat makes sense……”
If you’re a ghost, no one would realize that you’re there.
You would be the perfect ace detective or spy.
Souta: “Okay, let’s go to the police.”
I’ve been getting involved with the police so much, I’ve gotten used to communicating with them.
Akane: “Wait, wait, Souta.”
And Akane stops me.
Souta: “Why? Akane, we’ll have to tell the police, right?” Akane: “And what are we going to tell them? That a friendly ghost came by and told us all the details?”
If I told them that my dead girlfriend’s ghost told me that my friend was abducted, they would just label me as crazy.
Souta: “BーBut then….what are we going to do?
As I said this, I felt something uneasy inside my chest.
Am I panicking?
Am I starting to believe that Touru was abducted too? While I was hesitating…
The atmosphere changed.
She chuckled quietly to herself.
I was wondering what was so funny.
Akane: “We already know the location, you know? Then all we need to do is <go rescue him ourselves>, right?”
“ “ WHAT?! ” ”
Both Akane and I yell out in surprise at Akane’s words.
………...wait, why is Akane also shocked?
Akane: “What are you saying, Yukina?!”
Akane (Yukina): “Sochan is strong so we have nothing to worry about.”
Akane: “It’s too dangerous!”
Akane (Yukina): “It’ll be fine～ We’ll be fine～”
Akane just continued speaking to herself.
……….from a bystander’s point of view, she looks like she completely lost it.
Souta: “Hey, Akane…” Akane (Yukina): “Oh, so that’s how it is, Sochan. Instead of speaking with your ex-girlfriend, you prefer your present girlfriend～?”
I immediately take a step back after hearing those words.
Akane: “Hey, Yukina. I don’t think that’s fair to Souta…..”
Akane (Yukina): “Sorry sorry. Sochan, I’ll guide you so let’s go help Touru, okay?”
Souta: “Wait, but….” Akane (Yukina): “Alriーght, it’s deciーdedー!!
And still speaking like Yukina, Akane began tugging at my hand.
The way she’s being so forceful is……...just like Yukina.
She always goes in head first without looking left or right.
She’s the complete opposite to my personality.
That’s what I liked about her so much.
Akane: “Souta, let’s at least check out where Yukina is talking about, and if Touru is really held there, let’s go to the police. Is that okay?”
Akane lets out a deep sigh and makes the suggestion.
She’s the logical and pragmatic type.
The same as me.
That was what helped me overcome some deepest concerns.
I nodded to Akane’s proposal.
With that, Akane, Yukina’s ghost, and I, the most peculiar and odd trio, went to go save my friend from peril.
