We Meet the Neighbors
(We Meet Our Fellow Prisoners)

About an hour after dinner, when I've calmed down a little bit about the password incident, there's a knock on the door. It's the neighbors from the house behind ours. And, it just happens, that one of them is the shaggy haired boy that I saw outside the hospital window. Great, that's one mystery of this place solved...sort of. There's a guy with light brown hair and glasses standing next to him. Shag head looks like he wishes he were anywhere else but here right now. Glad to see that I'm not the only one.
Seeing him up close, he's actually kind of cute. Not enough that I'd get a crush on him-stuff like that should stay in books, and stuff where they belong-but still pretty cute.
"Hello, my name is Shuuji. We live in the house behind yours and decided to welcome you to the country." the brown haired guy said with a smile.
"Oh, thank you. That was very thoughtful of you. Would you please both come in?" my mom says, returning his smile. And just like that, my mom lets complete strangers into the house. I’m trying to sneak away, but she catches me and waves me over. Oh boy, this is about to get worse.
“This is my daughter, Bethany. Bethany, do you have any idea where your brother is?” she says.
“I think he’s outside. I’ll go find him.” I say. I know exactly where he’s at, but I’ll take my time. I do not, want to be embarrassed in front of the neighbors because of my mom.
Trevor’s not outside, he’s in his room. But mom doesn’t know that and dads at work, perfect excuse for me to get out of here.
Then, Trevor decides to come out and see what’s going on.
“Oh there he is, never mind.” mom says. Way to go little bro. Trevor walks up to shag-head and with a big, goofy, childish grin on his face, says “Hi, my name is Trevor. What’s yours?” Just like mom and dad taught him to do when he meets someone new. Mom is beaming at him, I’m using the face palm again and shaking my head. This. Is. Japan. Not America! I don’t know much about this place, but I’m pretty sure that’s considered weird here too!
Hey, people can think whatever they want about me, but I can just see Trevor getting picked on whenever he does that kind of stuff. I really wish I could get out of here. It’s not that I don’t want to meet the neighbors, I just don’t want my MOM to meet them. Not after we just got here. Hey, I had to get my weirdness from somewhere, and dad’s probably the most normal person in this house! (Not counting the neighbors)
Unbelievably, shag-head smiles back at him and says,
“I’m Yoshimori.” I swear I’ve seen this guy before, I’ve heard his name before too…but where? Where could I have heard of this guy? Why does everyone in this country look and sound so dang familiar?!
