Yet, Kyoko felt lonely.
After her father’s death, her sister built a new house, which was a barrier-free designed. It was easy for their aged mother to live in.
Her sister persuaded Kyoko’s family to live with their mother.
As for the rightful owners of the house which had been their father’s, it was divided among their mother and the sisters under law. Their mother got one half.
The rest of other half was divided into a half between the sisters.
Though Kyoko’s sister lived in a different house, she had as much of the say over various things or incidents concerning the family as she controlled the whole family.
In spite of being a small pharmacy, she ran that company and had some employees including Kyoko, taking care of all the family, including their mother, Kyoko, and Saori.
So it was also natural that Kyoko’s sister should press them on their appearance such as clothes or hair styles or attitudes, and so on, even limiting where they went .
