The sound of jetwash slowly faded into the distance. As the crowd of Japanese travelers thinned, a single stranger, pulling a small, dark wheeled suitcase was revealed. He looked out towards the glass doors, where a stately man in a suite and sunglasses stood, holding a sign which, among lines of various characters, read 'Sylvan'. The boy leaned his head slightly back, placing his hand on the pair of circular glasses he wore for travel. The light glinted from the tinted lenses as he placed them on his collar.
"Badge please," the man asked in rather stoic Japanese.
Wordlessly, the boy reached into his pocket, flashing a red shaded ID card with his photo in the center. The man nodded, lifting a briefcase, and leaving. With a slight shrug, the youth strolled on, entering an awaiting black sedan along with the man. Inside there was another, who welcomed the foreigner inside. The second man nodded, and with a tip of his hat, the driver pulled out.
"So, what am I in for?" he asked casually.
"Arekusandā Kaizā Shiruvuan. Watashitachiha, Nihon ni anata o kangei shimasu. Anata wa sugu ni kichi ni hitsuyō to narudearou. Anata ga Sekutā Fifutīn-B de hitsuyō to sa rete iru yō ni, watashitachi to issho ni kite kudasai. Go taizai o o tanoshimi kudasai," the man said.
"What?" Alexander replied.
He had been totally lost by that. He knew a little Japanese, but all he caught was some scraps of things that didn't make any sense.
"What are you almost done?" he asked.
However, what he meant was 'What are you saying'?. Yeah... his Japanese wasn't the best.
"デジタルワールドへの旅を表現するすべての国際的なエージェントはセクター15-B、中央制御室に報告するように言われます。私は繰り返し、デジタルワールドへの旅を表現するす べての国際 的なエージェントはセクター15-B、中央制御室に報告するように言われます。"
"All international agents representing the trip to the Digital World are told to report to Sector 15-B, Main Control Room. I repeat, all international agents representing the trip to the Digital World are told to report to Sector 15-B, Main Control Room," the hall speaker blared.
A young boy looked up to the speakers.
"What?" he wondered aloud, "Inter... nashio...", "Ah, internazionale."
He then lifted up the small map, looking carefully at it.
"Now, where am I going?" he mumbled.
"Alexander Kaiser Sylvan. We welcome you to Japan. You will be needed at the base immediately. Please come with us, as you are needed in Sector Fifteen-B. Enjoy your stay."
