"Tell me about it," Tsukiko mumbled. "I really want to let my family know I'm alright, but... I have no idea how to explain what's happened."
She held the compass carefully in both of her hands and thought about Hiroto, picturing him in her mind as vividly as she was able to. The compass pointed at the end of the hallway.
"Huh," Tsukiko said and walked to the window. "I guess he's outside? Let's go? Maybe we can figure out what to tell our parents together too."
She went downstairs and out of the main doors, looking at the compass again. Suddenly she had such a vivid mental image she almost lost her balance. She grabbed Allison's shoulder for support and frowned, startled.
"I think I just saw Hiroto," she said. "He's in the middle of a forest and I think he's anxious... Do you know if there's a forest near here? Are we even allowed to go?" She didn't care if it wasn't allowed, though. She just wanted to find Hiroto quickly - she had a bad feeling about that forest.
