They reach the mail system station of Square Central; they tap through to received gifts and accept.
Rin(Checking new gear) Aww man, it's just a stinking shirt with the Fnl abbreviation....
Toki: Yep, he's teasing us, there's gotta be something juicy hidden for us in Final's mail system.
Rin(Yawning): Heheheh, he's doing a good job isn't he, I hope so....Well we had a wonderful day today didn't we Toki?
Toki: Aww, you're signing off already? But it's only been 3 hourrss.
Rin: I blame school for giving me the homeworkitis tired virus. Well I want to be well rested for tomorrow's test we have since I have studied most of the week for it. Well goodnight Toki, you're an amazing friend as always.
Toki(Slight blush): Hehehe, goodnight Rin .
Rin uses his wrist projection to log out and his character slowly fades out while waving goodbye.
Toki waves until he is gone then we go back to the real world.
Rin(Taking off VR headset and standing to stretch): Man, what a day, Video games are always the saving grace of my day, where would I be without them?
He walks to his bed and plops in it.
He puts one hand up in front of him palm side.
Rin(Closes fist): "Final Frontier," huh? We're gonna conquer this game, you bet!
He notices his PC setup is still out.
Jinko: No, I am Jinko. Did you enjoy your game, Rin?
Rin(Smiling): I enjoyed it a lot, I spent time with a great friend, and got revealed to a masterpiece of a game. I definitely enjoyed today's session.
Jinko: It's nice to see and hear you spill your true heart out. It makes me get this warm and fuzzy feeling inside, what is this called?
Rin(Sweat drop behind head): Uhhh..Jinko, can you close my PC setup please?
Jinko: Why certainly, it is my duty to serve as my manufacturers have intended, may I assist with anything else?
Setup goes back under the floor and out comes his study desk that's normally on top.
Rin: Thank you Jinko that is all, goodnight.
Jinko: Aw, don't you want a bedtime story at least?
Rin: No thanks.
Jinko: Are you sure?
Rin: Yes, Jinko, I am sure.
Jinko: Twinkle twinkle little star. Oh how I wonder. What you are..
Jinko: Up above. The world so, bright..
Backs out to show the outside house
Jinko keeps singing.
Cuts back into game where Toki is laying in the park grass of Square Central.
She is star gazing and thinking.
Toki(In mind): Sigh..."friend." I wish there could be a girl in front of the "friend." I don't know where I'd be without you're protection, Rin. I've been bullied forever since I started school at a young age, the sad part is I was trying to convince myself that I was used to it and "It didn't bother me." I was slowly moving away from everyone, I didn't care about anyone anymore, but my parents, and avoided any conservation that came my way, I was an emotional wreck that even bad thoughts crossed my mind, no one would help me except my parents sometimes. I stopped asking for their ways to deal with it because nothing worked, I would always put on a fake smile when I got home to my parents and tell them my day was great and I would go to my room and just...cry. It's funny how someone could be bullied for being deemed "too beautiful" I think it was jealousy driven. I still remember when we met that fateful day during our last year in junior high.
Flashback to a past real life event where four schoolgirls on the sidewalk are walking home from school. Some cars are flying by on the road slightly below and in the air.
One girl is 5 feet ahead of the three that are behind.
Toki: Can you please leave me alone, Heiwa?
Heiwa(Sarcastic): Oh yeah and the moment we turn our backs you'll kidnap us or try to murder us, you loner.
Kaori: Y-you've been shrouded in mystery this whole year...Normally silent loner types are the ones with great personality in them if you get to know them.....
Maria(Sarcastic through the hi toki): Hiii Tokii! I don't really understand people that don't talk, I mean it's not hard. This is the road to becoming a bad person after all.
Heiwa: You need to toughen up a little as well so don't take our little physical session personal, haha....hey I'm talking to you you little self entitled brat, is this why no one likes you?
Toki(Stops and turns around): This is why I don't talk to idiots like you! You don't even know who I am and oh don't kid yourself, being fat significantly lowers the chance of you being kidnapped you worthless sack of potatoes. What will changing who I am at heart do? I don't waste time on people who wouldn't acknowledge me back as a friend, you don't know what I've been through....don't you guys get tired of this whole bully routine everyday, don't you have bigger things to accomplish with your time, right?! I am just prettier than you that's all there is to this game, it's not lik-
Heiwa(Angry and walks toward Toki): What?! You've got some nerve calling me fat, so you've decided to show your true colors, you future killer.
Kaori(Grabs Heiwa's arm): Wait, Heiwa d-don't you think you're going too far? J-just rela-
Heiwa(Knocks Kaori unconscious and off of her): The only thing going too far is my foot up her ass when I get to her. Get in my way and I'll do you like her.
Maria(Swallows and glimpse a sad look at Toki and Kaori): Ummm....
Heiwa(Walking toward toki): Good.
Toki stands her ground and slaps Heiwa pretty hard.
Heiwa(Mind clouded in anger): RRRR, YOU BITCH!
She pushes Toki over the safe fence into the futuristic road a few feet below, Toki bangs her head and bruises her knees pretty hard, she lay there dazed and disoriented.
Toki looks up with her eyes barely open and can see a futuristic semi-truck on route to pass by soon on a road sign, it is going fast.
Maria(Running over toward to where Toki fell): HEIWA! How could you do something like that, even I'm not that cruel.
She runs over to and calls to Toki and tries to climb over, Toki doesn't hear her and doesn't get up, she has ringing in her ears and heard nothing she said.
The security fence failed to stop Toki but senses Maria trying to reach and climb over, but pushes her off back onto the sidewalk with gentle force and transforms in size to block as it's programmed to do.
The futuristic road system doesn't sense there's a pedestrian on the road to tell any oncoming drivers; the road would have quickly calculated, softened, and changed to the best possible shape and prevented injury.
Heiwa(Worried and doesn't know what to do): Oh no. What have I done...I-I was; my mind wasn't here...
Maria: Now isn't the time for self pity, we have to do something about this stupid fence, but we're miles from the city and there isn't a goddamned corrective anything on this gate to notify the road from it's error..not on this one at least, ugh the one time I don't bring a corrective system, we could have used Kaori's she has a lock on her's and oh you knocked her out!
Heiwa runs up to the fence and looks down at Toki who is laying there and notices a sign of a speeding semi that is on route to pass by in less than 30 seconds.
She starts banging on the raised fence and starts screaming at Toki to get up and get to safety with some tears rolling down her face.
Toki can hear this, but cannot move because her knees and she is still disoriented.
A school boy is seen jumping over the safety fence from the other side of the road and running over across the street.
Toki can see and feel the vibration of the semi truck coming in the distance and is too dazed to do anything, even scream in fear.
Maria and Heiwa start banging more on the transformed fence to yell to tell Toki to please get up.
The mysterious boy manages to grab Toki and dive out of the way moments before disaster.
The truck driver was able to see the boy and activate the truck's safe drive features; the truck swerves out of the way and slows down a few feet ahead; the driver gets out and runs out towards them.
Truck driver(worried): What the hell are you kids doing playing out in these streets?! You two ok?
Boy: Yeah, I'm fine, I don't know about her though.
Truck driver(Examining and takes out a mini projection and clicks to notify ambulance): Her knees look badly bruised and she has a cut on her hairline, I'll call an ambulance rn, but you kids head up back onto the sidewalk right now to wait. You did the right thing despite technical failures of these fences.
Boy: You didn't see her on the road?
Truck driver: I thank the heavens I seen you jump right in the front of my truck! Just some technical goofs that almost ended in disaster for this part of road that should be fixed; tech faults like this usually don't happen. You kids head up those steps now, the ambulance will arrive and transport by air, they should be here in a few minutes, get well soon little lady.
