Shion had arrived to the Irie Clinic to visit Satoshi Hôjô, the boy who had gone missing. The boy who had given it all for his little sister. The boy who, although he didn't know it, won her heart right from the start. The boy who she loved, even if he couldn't hear her feelings.

She had arrived to visit him, as she did almost every week since she moved back to Hinamizawa. The green-haired beauty had tried for a long time to talk to him like he could listen, but eventually she had to accept that it wasn't working, so she tried a different approach. Stories. Fairy tales, to be exact.

For this occasion, Shion had selected a story she stole- ehm, borrowed- from Rika, a lvoely fairy tale she adored as a child: Sleeping Beauty. Whether he liked it or not, it was beyond her, but it would have to do. There were only so many fairy tales available in Hinamizawa.

"And with the kiss, the princess regained her consciousness. She awoke from her long sleep and with a smile, kissed the charming prince who had defeated the evil queen and saved her life" she rose her head from the page and snorted. "You know how the thing goes then. Blah blah happily ever after blah."
