Best friend if Calysta didn't know any better was this Cat the person she was staying with? It was like Katsura was hinting at it. She looked confused and asked. "Are you on about your toy cat?" She was fourteen it was no way she thought it was real right? "If you are I'm sorry, but you can't stay with a toy all your life, don't you want friends you can talk with?" Didn't know what emotion to use? This girl was a lot like Calysta in some way but took not wishing to feel any pain to the next level.
They would leave, walking towards the car, allowing her into the front or back but before she would take off she asked a question. "Katsura, I what you to be honest with me. What do you think about your father? How he acts towards people do you what to be like him?" She would say as the car took off towards the restaurant.
Katsura's lack of maturity finally seemed to show, there was a second long different facial expression. That of shock inadvertently Katsura's subconscious had confirmed that it was her cat toy she referred to. This also manifested as a sudden strutter.
"Umm, I don't. I do ehm have, I have humans friends too. Ugh I mean of course all my friends are humans" Katsura slowly realized that she had been digging herself deeper. In a mediocre attempt of damage control, Katsura kept her mouth shut until they reached Calysta's car. Katsura sat in the back seat, curiously she decided that not only should Nyao sit on the left seat away from Calysta's sight but that Nyao had to wear a safety belt too. Katsura herself sat on the right.
When Calysta asked about Katsura's dad, Katsura briefly broke the eye contact by turning to Nyao, apparently Katsura needed her toy's permission or advice before answering questions about her dad. Nyao nodded but this was most likely not noticed by Calysta. Katsura turned to the eyes in the rear view mirror. Even with Nyao's support, it still took Katsura almost a minute to invent an answer.
"My dad is... Okay I guess. Sure he has his problems but... I do love him very much. I don't want to be like him when I grow up and I doubt anybody else would. Still, everyone deserves a chance. Even... If... Oh what to eat? Well, I'm not picky. What would you like to eat?"
She would blink, why did she have a problem saying, human friends? Did this young girl only have toys or animals as her friends? It took too much time, she can get thinking about a question but something like this should take less time, it was like she was trying to think of the right thing that could be said. "I see, well my father is someone who works hard, he spent most of his time working it was rare when I got to see him. I told myself when I left I would never be like him, but at the same time, I did. Sometimes, without us knowing it, we try so hard not to be like our fathers or other family members. But we change because of them, no longer wishing to open up and trust anyone, because you're scared they might hurt you."
She would keep driving and speak again. "Not sure, most of the time I stay in and make my own meal, it's rare when I go out for something to eat, so I will let you pick." She would have a smile looking into the mirror.
The words Calysta said about parents hit Katsura hard, it took her a long time to come up with a reply. "You change to live up to expectations. If parents want quiet, you stop talking. If they want solitude, you disappear. If they don't want to cook, you become a chef. That's how families work." Nyao who knew where Katsura came from found Katsura's rant depressing. Behind Katsura's mastering of domestic skills like cooking and cleaning was a desperate attempt to please and submit. Nyao was thankful that Katsura turned down Liliana's offer to become a servant rather than returning to this downward spiral. "Hnm" Meanwhile as Calysta was driving she made it clear that Katsura was deciding where to eat. That gave Katsura an idea of how to escape this situation. If Katsura could lure Calysta to the Shibuya central station, she could exploit the fact that only a digi-device grants access to the special digimon platform. Surely there were no way Calysta could follow Katsura into the digital world? At least that was what Katsura counted on.
"I think there are some nice restaurants near the station" Katsura said cheerfully, hoping that Calysta would take her bait.
"Well families work like that if you what to write it down in a book, but I think it's more to it." She would say with a smile. The Station many children have gone missing around that area, with it being noted that was the last place people have seen them. "Near the station, I don't think I recall anything good there, but if that is where you like to go okay." She would say turning the car to go that way. After five minutes, it didn't take long, as she would stop parking, with her exiting out telling Katsura. She didn't really see anything that was really any good around this place, but who knows it had to be something. "Okay, where did you wish to go? But I'm still not really sure it's anything that good here." She was packed right next to the station.
Katsura returned Calysta's smile on the assumption she had to copy her. Katsura was quiet during most of the car travel except for occasionally sharing looks with Nyao. Katsura wasn't that perfect in keeping up the masquerade but it didn't matter anyway since it was in character for the weird girl persona she was adapting.
Once arrived and asked where to go next, Katsura looked around for a specific wall near the platforms. Once that wall was identified, Katsura spoke up. "I think it is around there" Katsura said as she pointed directly on the seemingly unimportant wall. First step in Katsura's improvised plan was now completed.
Was Katsura leading Calysta into a trap or something? It couldn't be, she is a fourteen-year-old girl, who doesn't look like she can harm anyone, with Calysta, being an adult knowing martial arts. "Okay, but I don't remember anything being there, are you sure this is the right way?" She must have the wrong place, but Calysta was going to check it first just in case.
"I did say you could pick." Calysta would follow the young child, to where ever she was going right now. She had to pick this place for a reason. But what was the reason behind it?
The answer was yes, apart from domestic skills Katsura also knew how to manipulate people to get what she wants. Should Calysta be analyzing Katsura the way for example a teacher can do those 3 aspects respectively tells a story about Katsura. Katsura bowed confirmative at both Calysta's responses, the second time as they were near the wall, Katsura used this distraction to press a button on her digidevice inside her pocket. Katsura pretended to be on her way away. Then she made a run for it without warning, she didn't just run back or forth. No, she run right into the wall to the side. Then the most strangest thing happen. Katsura carrying Nyao ran through the wall as if it didn't exist. Apparently, Calysta was dealing with a wizard who has just ditched her in favor of Platform 9 3/4. We might need to move the thread soon
