Part 3 of ?
You turn back to Yi, noticing a slight blush has appeared on her face as she hears the voice. A mumbled N-No escapes her mouth before she turns her face away from him, you guess, to hide it. A warm breeze goes by as the water continues its loud, uneasy movements during a moment of silence that passes between the three of you. Then, the boy begins to speak.
She probably didn`t bother to greet you properly, either. Well, welcome to Hanabi, he says giving you a slight bow and forcing a small smile onto his face. I`m Wen, and as you may have already figured out, the girl over there is Yi. You watch him turn his gaze to the water before glancing at you again. He`s clearly staring at the moon`s reflection as if it holds the answer to how he should continue what he was saying, you think to yourself. Can I speak to you alone for a moment? he asks, breaking the silence again before grabbing a hold of one of your arms and pulling you away from Yi and more towards where the festival was. There`s something I have to know, he says, and you wonder what could be so important that he leave the girl there alone.
As he leads you a small distance from the area, you glance back at Yi, who is now seated on the edge of the sand, her hanfu nearly touching the water. Wen`s voice interrupts your focus and you realize you`ve probably missed what he just said. Quickly, you apologize to him and ask him to repeat what he just said. You`re not even from a nearby area, are you? he says and you shake your head. He continues, Your clothing is too expressive, pointing to your ears (refer to Part 1). And your shoes make a lot of noise. But I have a favor to ask. Can you protect Yi?
You glare at him, remembering the girl that you both left waiting back by the sand. Then you nod, puzzled. She`ll properly take care of your housing and clothing while you`re here. It`s just a fear-- he starts again but the sound of a clock tower cuts him short and he now seems in a hurry. But I have to go, please take care of Yi! he yells as he rushes off to the right. A few seconds pass and he`s already out of sight but you continue to wonder what that was about as you begin walking back to where Yi was.
