In Tawashi there lies a forest off it's western side Know as the west District Hasaguma Forest which has paths that run though it may they be cement or just dirt paths that are used by joggers, bikers or just a family looking for a picnic spot. However rumors in Tawashi tell of a tree deep in the woods with shoes on most of it's branch's and anyone who finds the tree is somehow put into a trance to put their own shoes on the tree. But thats just a rumor isn't it?

Moka was taking her morning Jog in the Hasaguma forest when she felt like taking a path that looked a little worst for wear then the other ones. "Hm? Lets see where this one leads." Moka said to herself as she ran down the path in her track outfit that consisted of normal blue track shirt and pants. White pantyhose with blue and white normal running shoes as she always leaves Ryou and Ayumu home when she jogs. Soon after running for a bit Moka found herself in a clearing that wasn't too big just about the size of a small house. However as Moka was looking at the flowers in the clearing she noticed a big tree about 100 years old in the center of the clearing with some strange things hanging down from the branch's hidden mostly by the leaves so she got closer to see what is was. But once Moka got within 20 meters of the tree she started to feel a bit strange as her mind all of a sudden went blank as she walked closer to the tree. Close enough to see that on the branch's was nothing other then about 250 pairs of shoes like normal sneakers to some pairs of boots all hanging from their laces like a Christmas decoration. However Moka was under the trees control and couldn't notice as she first untied her right sneaker and removed it showing her hosed foot as she soon untied and removed left shoe. And she tied the laces of the two sneakers together and threw them up to tree where they landed on a branch as Moka just started to walk off until she got to the trail where she regained control and started to run but soon noticed her shoes were gone but had no idea where they were so she had no choice but try to walk home without tearing her white hose and wondering who or what took her shoes.
[12:42 PM. Same day]
Next Naizuma and her sister Tamako Yoshida where taking a walk in Hasaguma forest to enjoy the nice summer day. Naizuma has an outfit consisting of a pink hoodie, like pink plaid skirt, white knee high loose socks and black and white normal sneakers while her sister Tamako wore A blue tee shirt, black medium length skirt, white sheer pantyhose and Black and White plain sneakers. "So sis I'm guessing your looking forward to the new magic course's coming right?" Naizuma said to her sister Tamako as they walked down one of the dirt paths while Tamako's feet slipped slightly out of her shoes with each step as she said. "I guess But I just worry that it will make more trouble then good. I mean some people will abuse their magic to commit crimes or get revenge on a bully the hard way." " I think Miyuki is thinking ahead about that." Naizuma said with a reassuring smile as she and Tamako accidentally didn't see where they were going and head down the same path Moka did earlier that same day. Soon they found themselves in the clearing with the shoe tree. "Huh this is interesting." Naizuma said noticing where they are as she and Tamako stopped walking. "Yeah though where are we Naizuma as this looks nowhere near the picnic area we were going to meet mom at." "Heck if I know sis Though whats up with that tree?" Naizuma said looking a the shoe tree as she and Tamako walked to get a better look as they could barely make out the shoes thanks to the leaves. But when they got 20 meters they both were put into the same trance like state that Moka was put into before. But instead of both of them coming at the same time Naizuma walked up to the tree first as Tamako just watched from behind. Once she was close to the trunk Naizuma started to untie her left sneaker and removed it from her socked foot soon untying and removing the right sneaker from her other socked foot. As Naizuma soon tired the laces of the two shoes together and threw them up into the tree landing on the same branch as Moka's running shoes as Naizuma walked about 10 meets from the trunk and watched as Tamako walked up to about 250 centimeters from the tree. where she stopped and slipped her shoes off easily from her smooth and thin pantyhose without untying them as she soon did to tie the shoes together and they soon landed on another branch next to a pair of well worn 2005 track shoes. Soon both Naizuma and Tamako walked away from the tree and back ont he path where they were taken out of the trance like state and they soon noticed their shoes were gone. "What the hell!? wheres our shoes?!" Tamako said while Naizuma didn't really pay any mind to it as she is used to walking around shoeless thanks to her time with Tanaka. "aw come on sis it isn't that bad." "Yes it is Naizuma! What if someone see's us! were part of the student council after all and this could discredit us!!" Naizuma just rolled her eyes at the statement as she was never one to really give a care for her part in the student council. As they both walked down the path they came there on while Tamako just fussed about her hose possibility being ruined. Leaving the shoe tree with 2 new pairs of shoes and maybe more in the future? Well we just have to wait and see.
