The Worth Of A Friend (Free! Fanfic) Ch. 3“Wow!” Liz exclaimed, as she gazed at the view below her. “You really haven’t seen Japan until you’ve seen it from up here, have you?”More Like This
The day of Liz’s hike with Rin had finally arrived, only two days before her departure from Japan. She had been out with his friends once more, although she hadn’t been able to get alone with Haruka again, but he had been texting her every night since the day that she had spent with him. She had met Rin’s schoolmates, Seijuro and Aiichiro, and she had gone shopping with Kou and her mother, as well as her friend Chigusa. This view from the height of one of Japan’s smaller mountains seemed like the perfect way to end a wonderful trip. The scene was so beautiful that her eyes were welling up as she peered at the view through her camera, determined to capture the moment forever.
“Rin, can you take a picture of me here, please?” The camera’s memory was almost full of

“You can just wear what you wore to the beach,” Gou answered, peering into a drawer in which she had stashed a few bathing suits. “You don’t need to bring towels or anything. Just bring a change of clothes.”
“Okay.” She went back to her room and dug up three bathing suits from her suitcase, which she laid on the bed. She sighed as she tried to choose one. She felt silly admitting it to herself, but she wasn’t feeling very enthused about the hot spring, solely because Haruka had expressed disinterest in it. A part of her wanted to believe that he might still show up, just for her, but she knew that that was quite a silly thing to hope for – Haruka barely knew her, and he had probably already made other plans for the night. Besides, she was sure that she would have a good time without hi
The Worth Of A Friend (Free! Fanfic) Ch. 1Rin Matsouka sat in the lobby of the airport, bouncing his legs and running his hands through his red hair nervously. Each time he brought his hand down, he pulled Gou’s compact mirror from his pocket and checked it, anxiously setting the misplaced strands into place. He savoured the flavour of the gum that he was chewing, partially to prevent himself from grinding his teeth out of anxiety, and partially to ensure that his breath stayed fresh. He was wondering whether he should dash into the bathroom to check his clothes, when he saw the crowd of immigrants filing into the lobby. He stood quickly, bouncing a little on the balls of his feet, and scanning the crowd for her.More Like This
There she was. She was even more beautiful than he remembered.
The young Australian woman stepped into the lobby, and looked around tentatively. Rin noticed with some satisfaction that she had been growing her auburn hair long again – it now passed shoulder-length – and that her
The Guide to OthersOthers are beings born from a broken mind. They are connected to a person, known as the Host, from birth, but those who live on Earth may not realize they are there straight away. On Earth, no one but the Host can see their Other, but they can be captured on video or audio recordings. On Encephalon, they can be seen by everyone.More Like This
Once the Host is born, the Other will be attached to the same umbilical cord. The strange thing is, the fetus of the Other cannot be detected in any way before birth, as if it's not even there. It also does not take nourishment from the mother of the Host. Basically, it is not known if the baby will have an Other until the mother gives birth to a second child (or in some cases, multiple children) that no one knew was there.
Others actually cannot reproduce, for they are sterile. It is likely that, when a Host reproduces, the child will also have an Other. The likelihood of the child having an Other depends on history of mental illness in both of the parents' fa
