Kyoko's father said ,
"Maybe Saori doesn't go to school because she doesn`t need to go to school. If kids feel they don't need to attend school, they don't attend school, like I used to do. I studied by myself, taught myself all the subjects, math, English, Japanese, painting, how to run, etc.. And I was No.1 compared with students of the same grade. I proceeded much better than them in all areas of learning. For me, school is not worth attending. So, maybe, Saori is like me."
He was optimistic about Saori's absence at school.
" Mom, my teacher told me that I might not have advanced to the third year," said Saori. Her teacher was a young woman, who taught students English.
" Why? "
" My absences were too much, so teachers took me to the advancement meeting. But, actually, I got many awards and I'm not a delinquent. So I passed the meeting," said Saori with smiling.
Though Kyoko was surprised to hear Saori, as Saori safely advanced to the third year, Kyoko forgot the story about Saori's absence in school without keeping it into even a part of her memory.
