Chapter 5 ……The Altered Game Machine ……
Kyoko didn’t want Saori to have it, but Shuichi bought it for her and they kept it secret from Kyoko. Soon Saori played it with her friends and Kyoko came to notice it.
One day Saori showed her Game B Kyoko saying,
“I don’t have to go over there, to the fourth building, any more.
I can pass San’s story down to you with this Game machine.”
“Oh, how come?'' asked Kyoko.
“San installed something, a device in it.
He did it for Aita’s game as well. San has also the same Game machine but he also uses the cellular phone, too, to communicate with me. He altered our game machine.''
“No!” Saori rejected Kyoko strongly.
“San said to me, ‘Don’t tell your mother how to do it, absolutely.’ If I taught you how to do it, he would not come here any more.”
Kyoko was bewildered by her story. Whatever the way of reunion might be, she didn’t want to lose the relationship with him again.
“Aita and his friends told me that if I told you how to do it, they would also leave me, would break off our friendship. If they leave, I’ll lose friends and get lonely, so I won’t tell you how.”
Afraid of losing him, Kyoko gave up seeing and touching the Altered Game B, making sure.
