Shoujo Grand Summoning - Chapter 739
Her eyes that could tell stories opened up like the beautiful stars in the sky . She slowly opened her eyes, making the heart-warming scene of a family sleeping together ripple ever so slightly .
It's clear that she wasn't sleepy from the star .
She looked at Wu Yan, then, she looked at Asuna . Her expression turned a bit weird .
She heard them talking .
She freed herself from Wu Yan and Asuna's hugs and she got up from the bed . She reached out, seemingly to caress both her parents face but she stopped herself out of fear . Her cute and bubbly face was marred by melancholy and sadness . . .
Yui couldn't muster up the courage to touch their faces . She slowly lowred her hands and a few seconds later, after whispering something no one could hear, she floated into the air .
Like a fairy, her lithe body lingered around the room . She floated to the side of the bed and she landed without making a sound . It's like she's afraid she might wake her parents up . . .
"Papa . . . Mama . . . "
Yui's eyes wavered . Her eyes dimmed the moment she looked at the two players sleeping on the bed . Her eyes started turning moisty, shocking Yui .
She rubbed her eyes and she turned around, but, not before giving Wu Yan and Asuna one last look . Then, she walked out of the room without hesitation . . .
She's afraid . She's very afraid that if she looked at them one more time, she will sapped of her strength to hold her tears back . . .
With tiny movements, she opened the door to the living room . She didn't flick on the lights, she just walked over to the window . Pushing it open, she stepped onto the balcony . . .
The forest at night is a very silent forest . One couldn't hear a wisp of sound coming from the forest . Not far away, the pearly waters of the lake shined as bright as they didi n the past . They reflected light like a gem in the forest . When the wind ruffled the waters, it turned into a scene that could capture the hearts of anyone who gazed upon it .
The sky is also flashing with light . The difference between the lake and the sky is the intensity of the light .
This place is truly one of the few places where one could get an unhindered view of the night sky . Excluding places like frosty mountains, stormy areas, and areas where weather clouded the sky, this floor allowed players to enjoy the night sky . This is something all 6000+ players who are still alive can vouch for .
Compared to the real world, the stars in SAO gathered into a beautiful milky way that stretched to infinity and beyond . This scene lit up places where light weren't available . The pedestrians would also be distracted by the night sky whenever they jogged here . Only monsters can bring the players back from being mesmerized .
That's how beautiful it is here .
A clear moon hung in the sky, a rare view even for this place . The moonlight shone upon the forest, the cabin, and of course, Yui who was taking it all in . . .
Yui's eyes turned misty under the moon's influence . She reached her hands out as if to grab the moon . She could only let out a line of confusion and doubt . . .
"Sh-should I . . . "
At this moment, a pair of arms grabbed Yui from behind . She was hoisted up by the owner of those arms .
Yui gasped in shock . The warm arms enveloped her in a similarly warm embrace . This sensation was all too familiar for her . She should know because she would spend a few minutes everyday indulging herself in this sensation .
Without the prior approval of the house owner, nobody could enter as they pleased . This meant that the one who hugged her was . . .
She confirmed the identity of the person hugging her . Wu Yan woke up after she came here .
Yui started panicking, she looked at Wu Yan with an anxious look .
"Papa . . . you . . . "
"You're not being a very good girl, Yui . . . "
He hugged her and he rubbed her head at the same time .
"A child shouldn't be up so late . . . "
"I-I . . . "
Yui couldn't vocalize her thoughts .
Wu Yan said nothing . He continued hugging Yui while looking at the night sky . Yui also shifted her gaze towards the night sky .
The moonlight lit up everything . Even while the moon slowly ebbed towards the other edge of the horizon, the fading starlight and moonlight signaled the passage of time . . .
Wu Yan and Yui stayed silently like this . Yui wasn't sure how she should explain herself . Wu Yan waited for her to speak her mind, time moved on until . . .
Yui lowered her head and she murmured with a puzzled and meek voice .
"Why . . . "
Wu Yan turned his attention back towards Yui . He asked her in a tone that sounded like he already read her mind .
"I should be the one asking that, right? . . . "
Yui turned mum, making the air turn deathly still once more .
Wu Yan sighed and he said something that startled Yui .
"Yui . . . "
Wu Yan continued .
"You got your memories back, huh? . . . "
Yui lowered her head further . Her bangs covered her face so he couldn't see her expression .
Wu Yan didn't pursue her . He beamed at her, silently waiting for her answer . Yui also correctly guessed that Wu Yan was looking at her . She clenched down on Wu Yan's shirt .
"I, I remember everything . . . "
She looked at Wu Yan with a crestfallen face . She saw Wu Yan's warm and all-encompassing smile, that was all it took to bring the light back into her eyes . She mustered her courage and she started telling her story .
"Actually, I am not a human . . . "
Her words would be enough to shock anyone, maybe even to the extent of throwing her away out of surprise . What shocked Yui the most is how Wu Yan reacted with immense composure . His smile remained amiable and peaceful .
Yui thought Wu Yan didn't believed her so she reiterated once more .
"I'm not lying, it's true!"
Wu Yan tightened his hug and he looked at the night sky with his deep-red eyes . . .
"Yeap, I already know about that . . . "
Yui's body shook .
