This wasn't a trip for the wealthy. If it was, Sarah never would have been able to come. In fact, she Sarah treasured the opportunity that had been bestowed upon her because most other high schoolers wouldn't get an opportunity like this until college. However, Sarah wasn't just any high school student, she had been able to enroll into college classes because, unfortunately, her school didn't have the higher level calculus courses that she needed. This enabled her to be a part-time university student, even though she still didn't have a high school diploma.

In any case, she had decided to apply for a week-long trip to Japan for a type of student-exchange program. And it was to her luck that she had been accepted!

And now she walking in a group with other college students. The strawberry blonde wallflower followed closely behind the group. Despite the long plane-ride to Japan, Sarah still had yet to meet anyone. There wasn't much to talk to the college students about and they all seemed to have friends of their own...

How could she dream of interjecting herself?

The girl walked dressed casually like a japanese high school student. A short skirt, knee-high socks, a sports jacket and collared shirt. She fit right in, and like many other teenage girls, her eyes were glued to her cell phone. However, Sarah wasn't texting anyone. She was studying.

If I'm at a zoo, I may as well learn the japanese words for all the animals I see...

She nodded.

Kangaru... is Kangaroo... What? Those are almost exactly the same!" Sarah exclaimed. But which came first...?

Sarah pondered, her hand to her chin.

Kangaroos are from Australia, right? Hmm..

I. MUY (B)UENO

Japan. He couldn't believe he was finally here.

When the university had presented him with the chance to be a part of this student exchange program, many months ago, Sigmund had immediately applied for a spot. Having spent an entire day writing a reference letter as to why he felt he deserved to go, the young man had waited an unbearable couple of days before he'd gotten a response: an affirmative and amazing yes. He had cheered in joy so loudly at the news from his home in Belfry Point that some students claimed to have heard him as far as downtown Tower City and the Mithril Forest.

On the budget of a barista, he would have never been able to afford a trip to Japan on his own. But, as it was, this program he had become a part of was covering the expenses for travel and shelter. They covered meals, as well. But, after looking at the somewhat subpar options they had in mind (cheap sushi buffets, no thank you), Sigmund busted his tail at the Café Chatton to earn enough money for authentic cuisine and maybe a souvenir or two. In addition, he had managed to rack in enough tips from work to arrange a trip to the Zony Corporation headquarters. From what he'd heard, the first floor lobby had a museum area of sorts that guests could visit. Choosing between the Studio Ghibli museum and that was rather hard, but he had to go with the one that he one day planned to be a part of.

Today, they were visiting the Ueno Park Zoo as a group. The plane ride the day previous was rather uneventful. Sigmund had played his Vita and read a book about another incomprehensible Lovecraftian entity while some of the other students did their best not to have to utilize their barf bags. The girls that had sat next to him were clearly best friends, as they'd talked to each other practically the whole trip, gabbing about boys they liked and girls they didn't. After hearing some gossip about a girl he knew, he placed his headphones on out of respect and taken a nap. Sigmund didn't know much people at the university still, despite him being a resident of Tower City for months at this point, and no one he knew seemed to be on this trip either. But the few people he did know, well... he definitely didn't want to taint his image of them with a dumb rumor that may or may not have been true.

So he slept. And, when he awoke, he was in the glorious Land of the Rising Sun.

He hadn't slept much in the hotel the day prior due to his excitement. But that absolutely did not deprive him of his customary buoyant energy today. The Ueno Zoological Gardens was, perhaps, one of the loveliest zoo's he had ever been to! And he'd visited the one in San Diego and Los Angeles. Reading the brochure as he trailed along closely behind his group, his happiness shone through his hazel eyes like jewels framed with dirty blonde hair. The 'Gorilla Woods' and 'Tiger Forest' sounded exciting but the pagoda here:

The five-storied pagoda and the tea ceremony house give the zoo a Japanese touch. The pagoda was built in 1631, rebuilt after destruction by fire. In 1958 the owner, Kan'ei-ji temple, gave the pagoda to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, who assigned its management to Ueno Zoo. The tea ceremony house was built to entertain shoguns in the 17th century, and it still stands as a historic structure in the zoo ground.

Well, Sigmund absolutely positively had to go-- oof!

He immediately started to apologize in Japanese when he realized he had bumped into a short girl. "Gomenasai, gomenasai! Honto ni gomen ne!" He said with an obvious American accent, quickly scooping up the brochure he had dropped and then proceeding to bow. Hoping he had done everything right in regards to customs, he kept his bow... then abashedly peeked upwards at the girl standing before him. A slight blush covered his cheeks almost instantly, although he certainly didn't recognize it. Whoever she was-- he couldn't really tell with the Japanese school outfit-- she was really cute. He shared a stare with her for a moment, muttering words beneath his breath he probably didn't even know he was saying. "Tsukiatte kudasai..." Then blinked, shaking his head and straightening in posture once more. Brochure in hand, not even caring that his group was walking further and further away, he embarrassedly smiled. "I mean... sorry. Are you alright?"

He'd switched to English upon the realization that she seemed more American than he thought she was at first glance. With any luck, she didn't know enough Japanese to understand the last phrase he'd muttered. With any luck, she didn't even hear it!

Sigmund simply wouldn't bear the embarrassment...

Huh? Sarah was suddenly pumped by the shoulder which caused her to lose her balance just enough to send her phone flying forward and crashing onto the cement just some feet in front of her. It was a hard crash, and Sarah ran so promptly to her phone to pick it up. She held it tightly in her palm to see a curved line going straight through the center. The phone was no longer on either. She pressed the power button on the left side of the phone. Nothing happened. It was gone. Her phone was gone and it wasn't coming back.

This was a depressing moment for the wallflower book nerd. Perhaps the most depressing moment she'd had in over a year, though it was far from the most traumatic experience.

In any case, Sarah stood in her treks. She looked down at her phone, and then gazed upward at the young blond boy who stood bowing in front of her. He was speaking japanese, a language that was still very foreign to Sarah. She was a math nerd, not a language nerd, unfortunately, despite how nice it would have been to have a grasp of a second language. So she stood there, shocked and unknowing of what to say. Obviously she recognized the boy, they were traveling in the same group. The only thing she didn't know was his name, even though she'd likely heard it before.

"I'm... fine," Sarah answered sheepishly. She wasn't sure how to respond to a classmate who had just rammed into her and broken her phone. As she gazed down at it, she realized her ability to keep in contact with the outside world was now all completely eliminated. The girl released a hearty sigh, clearly expressing some level of depression. This was going to make life difficult, Sarah wasn't exactly the type who garner the courage to ask a compete stranger to use their phone. Nor was she the type who could tell Sigmund that she had broken her phone in the first place.

Sigmund was an oblivious fool a majority of the time. But he'd have to be downright stupid not to notice that the girl with the strawberry blonde hair was disappointed. It wasn't until he followed her gaze that he realized exactly what he had done. His heart sunk at the realization. And, of course, he instantly felt awful about it. "Your phone... is it broken?" Sigmund muttered, taking a step closer and leaning down to examine it with his eyes. "I'm so freakin' sorry." He lamented, running a single hand through his dirty blonde hair as he frowned.

If he hadn't let his excitement get the better of him, if he'd been paying attention, he wouldn't have bumped into her and made her lose her balance. He almost would have preferred the embarrassment of his previous Japanese statement (which had clearly gone under the radar) over this shame he felt now. But, determined to make it right, he shook the thought out of his head and sighed. The solution would cut into his funds for his personal trip to the Zony Headquarters, but he didn't care about that at this point. The only thing that mattered to him was not spoiling some innocent girl's trip just because he'd been careless. He was certainly raised better than that.

"Hey, I know I'm just the idiot who bumped into you and accidentally broke your phone... but how about we tag along with each other through the duration of this zoo visit? I can let you use my phone if you need it and we can go get it fixed somewhere afterwards. You won't have to spend a dime. Or, uh... a yen. Or whatever." He abashedly smiled, leaning slightly forward and trying to make eye contact with her. Clearly, she was rather shy and soft-spoken. He had been, too, once upon a time.

Her phone slipped into her purse as she wasn't going to spend her time complaining about what had just happened. She didn't expect anything from a stranger, even if he was an acquiantance from school. She still didn't know him, so it felt a bit weird to rely upon him for anything. Sarah was perhaps one of the most conservative students around. She always wore long sleeves, and for one reason or another wore corrective glasses that she barely needed in the first place. In any case, the wallflower's first instinct was to deny the help that Sigmund had offered to her, but after a moment of silence she would give her uncertain answer.

"I guess," she muttered weakly.

The girl shrugged her shoulders and slipped her phone into her pocketbook. she wasn't sure what need she'd have for an escort, but now that she had no useful electronics to distract herself with she realized it may have been the best way to ease the boredom.

She certainly didn't seem all that receptive to Sigmund's attempt to rectify the accident. The blonde barista could tell she was the epitome of meek and mild, and she probably thought she was inconveniencing him. Either that, or she was so fuming mad that she didn't even want to deal with him any longer than she had to. Regardless, Sigmund knew the entirety of the blame was on him and he definitely felt mighty dumb about it. A part of him honestly might have preferred she lashed out at him, and had been somewhat expecting it. But she hadn't. And, because of that, the young man suddenly found himself admiring her kindness and feeling twice as ashamed for his mistake because of it.

He did, of course, sense the hesitation in her words. Although it was selfish in a sense, helping her get her phone fixed as soon as their trip to the zoo was over would definitely ease his guilt. But he also didn't want her to feel like he was imposing anything on her. The way he saw it, anything after this point was entirely in her hands and he would continue giving her the option to stick with it and let him fix her phone or call it a day whenever. With that in mind, he nodded and gave her an apologetic smile.

"Okay, good." He muttered, lightly clapping his hands once as he started to slowly walk backwards in an attempt to continue to lead her on down the zoo's path. Looking over his shoulder to ensure he didn't run into another person, he took note that the coast was clear and their group was far ahead of them. So he continued to face the girl with the short strawberry blonde hair as he matched any step she took forward with one backward. "My name's Sigmund, by the way. I don't think we've met before." The young man certainly would have remembered her if they had, he knew that much. "Are you new to the university?"

He seemed nice enough, however Sarah just couldn't be certain. Sarah wasn't made at him. That simply wasn't her nature to be mad at another person for an extended period of time. She could hold grudges, but even those took some time to form. She typically didn't get close enough to someone to warrant a higher level of animosity. In fact, she didn't know anyone very well at all. Well, no one except her father, and he always seemed to keep himself busy with work. It was okay though, she never had a desperate urge to know anyone either. Perhaps many people would consider her to be antisocial. She was. She couldn't understand why anyone would want to talk to her in the first place.

As Sigmund resumed his walk, Sarah continued on behind him, letting him take the lead. It seemed they had fallen behind their group. Again, Sarah didn't particularly care about that either. They knew where to meet up again. They were college students and they had freedom. The fact that they had been in a group in the first place was silly.

The one thing that did bother Sarah, however, was how empty her hands felt without a cell phone to gaze at while she explored. Her hands felt bare. She felt naked. But she would have to fight every instinct and urge she had to turn tail and run back to the hotel for her computer because she was in Japan and she wanted to make the most of her experience. Had she been in Tower City, however, the decision would have been so much easier.

Without much ado, Sarah's attention was stolen again by Sigmund who asked her a question regarding her status at the university. It was complicated and she couldn't decide if she wanted to take the time to explain it to him or not that she wasn't like the other students. Technically, she was still a high schooler, she just also dabbled in university classes because she had accelerated in math and science. Graduating early wasn't an option because she needed the credits. Furthermore, her father didn't want her to miss out on the high school experience. Well, she had shown him by missing a week of high school for a trip to Japan. As for Sigmund's question...

"I guess," she answered briskly. She paused for a few silent seconds. "And... I'm Sarah."

Her name was Sarah.

He couldn't say he'd heard it before... not in any of his classes, anyway. But, between his job at the Café Chatton and his dealings with the Digital World, he hardly had any classes on-campus to begin with. Spinning around so that he wasn't walking backwards anymore, the young blonde walked beside her and kept an even pace as he responded. "Nice to meet you, Sarah." He softly said, the warm smile on his face reaching his hazel eyes like a glimmer. Looking at Sarah for a moment longer, he tried to remember if he'd seen her somewhere before. But the barista resigned his endeavor after a moment. Acknowledging the lack of a group ahead of them, instead, he sighed and pulled the pamphlet for the zoo out of his pocket.

"Well... I have a funny feeling that if we try to catch up to the others, we'll just be running in circles..." Sigmund explained, opening the pamphlet to reveal the map hidden within. He'd marked on it previously-- specifically, the parts of the park that their school had assigned them to visit. The assignment was optional, of course, but going to each exhibit and translating the text there regarding the animals or zoo was easy enough. And, if it meant getting them one step closer to a better grade in Japanese, the young man reasoned it was worthy enough to bring up. "So, instead of going on that goose chase, how do you feel about completing the extra credit with me and meeting up with them later? I've already got it planned out. Should be easy enough." He brightly said, showing her the map.

The underlying truth of the matter was... well, he'd been planning on parting from the group anyway. And not just on this particular trip to the zoo, either. No hotel room was going to hold him in place when there was wonderful and exciting Japan to explore.

Should Sarah have agreed, Sigmund would happily nod and gesture towards the right turn the path was headed towards. "Our first stop, the polar bears, should be just up that way!"

She nodded briskly as he suggested they do extra credit together. Frankly, she didn't care if she got a good grade in this class. It wasn't a science class, and she knew she would major in nothing outside of math or science. Despite that, to the Polar Bears it was. Sarah followed behind Sigmund with her arms crossed and tucked beneath each other as she did so. Keeping them crossed was the only way for her to keep her mind off of the fact that she no longer had her phone. It kept her hands distracted, as leaving them dangling at her sides would have felt nothing short of awkward and out of place. She was aware that other people did it, but she wasn't certain how they did. In fact, she wasn't certain how anyone could survive a day without a phone. Unfortunately, she was about to go an entire week.

Her steps trailed Sigmund's and she found herself repetitively asking why she was following him. Each time, she would suddenly remember: "he has the phone". Why did it matter that he had a phone? Well, if she got lost she'd be able to find people, for one. But this begged the question why would she need to find someone? Why couldn't she just go to the zoo office to make a call if she was desperate? And much more silent thought would lead to Sarah coming to the conclusion that she was following Sigmund because she was curious about him.

He was among the only college students who had taken the time to talk to her. He seemed nice enough and he wanted her to follow. She had nothing better to do. This is why she was following and this is what she kept reminding herself.

It wasn't long before they arrived at the polar bear exhibit as was intended. Sarah maintained her silence through the whole trip. She wasn't the type to speak unless spoken to, but this was only because she had nothing to say. If she had a question to ask, she could usually answer it in her own mind or with her phone so what was the point? Even personal questions. These could usually be answered through social media. Furthermore, she didn't care enough about what Sigmund thought of her to worry if he minded her silence. If he wanted to speak, he could and she would answer.

She was awfully quiet. Her lack of words and her physical mannerisms all seemed to point towards a, more or less, introverted personality. But Sigmund wasn't bothered by that at all. Even if he hadn't been the cause of her phone shattering, he knew well enough to respect the silent boundaries reserved people like them put up. He was well aware that his cheeriness and excitement over being in Japan was in stark contrast to her own behavior currently, but the blonde also had years of experience being anti-social. Enough to measure a good balance between the two.

Silently, they passed a gift shop that was built to resemble a crocodile's head. A flamingo exhibit flanked them to their right afterwards, and to their left an exhibit dedicated to the various kinds of antelope and deer. Their destination, however, was directly ahead of them: a den of white ice with three observation decks. One of them was on the ground floor, behind a thick panel of glass, with a wide view of the polar bear's den. Another was at the top of a set of stairs, offering an open-air (but fenced) bird's eye view into the exhibit. And the last was below ground with a wide panel of glass capturing the perfect view of the icy water whenever the creature of the arctic decided to take a swim.

Sigmund neatly folded his map as they approached it, removing a small notepad and pen from his messenger bag afterwards. Leading the way towards the ground floor deck, they would find that section of the exhibit empty. Shrugging it off, however, he instead walked over to the display at the corner that told them paraphrased information of things they would want to know about 'hokkyokuguma'. "Hokkyokuguma... polar bears." The young blonde reaffirmed to himself with a nod, beginning to jot down a general translation of the text provided there.

It wasn't too long before he finished, turning back to Sarah and showing her the scribbles of hiragana and kanji on his notepad. "All done with this one." He smiled. "Wanna do the next one for us? You're probably better at it. Ooo! Let's see if we can't find the polar bear first, though." He excitedly said, gesturing her to follow as he took the stairs to the deck below ground. The atmosphere was certainly darker then, but a cool blue glow enveloped them as they entered. There was no sign of the polar bear, at first... then, without warning, the large creature swam upward from the depths and surprised them. Sigmund awed at its size and how well it swam, his eyes reflecting the deep blue water. "Wow... I couldn't swim like that to save my life."

It wasn't long before Sarah and Sigmund had made it to the polar bear exhibit. Sarah had intended to take her notes on her cell phone, so the fact that she didn't have that any longer made it difficult for her to feel like participating. It wasn't like there was a real grade for this anyway, so why go through the extra effort of having to take all the notes elsewhere anyway? She stood, arms crossed, still wondering if she should be here. Sigmund seemed nice enough but... Sarah was still skeptical as to why. She merely observed as he did his part in the little scavenger project. Sarah remained silent as if trying to meld in with the air itself.

Sarah wouldn't have been surprised if Sigmund had forgotten of her existence, but she was quickly proven wrong when Sigmund suddenly spoke. Sarah was taken off guard by his abrupt question and nearly jumped out of her skin. However, before the reluctant strawberry-blonde could answer the question that had been posed to her, Sigmund went on to suggest that they find the bear. Sarah's lip curled, but she decided to follow Sigmund down the stairs. Down there they had a much better view of the bear. While Sigmund was in awe at the creature's suddenly appearing in their view, Sarah was looking at him and wondering how someone could be so easily amused.

Sarah stared at Sigmund for much longer than she realized. And when she did realize it, she immediately gasped and turned away from him, her cheeks flushed red.

Her heart beat rapidly in her chest and she hoped he hadn't noticed her staring. What had she been thinking in the first place? She didn't know. But she switched her gaze to the polar bear that she was less interested in. Hopefully Sigmund hadn't noticed. She readjusted her glasses.

If there was anything to be thankful for on Sarah's end, it was the cool blue glow from the polar bear exhibit that hid the red flush on her cheeks. Sigmund had, in fact, briefly noticed her looking at him from the reflection of the glass. When he'd turned to her, however, she had turned away just as quickly! The young man smiled, delightfully amused by Sarah's cute attempt to play it off, even though he didn't make it too apparent. Speaking before she could acknowledge that he'd spotted her, the barista tried to play it off. "Let's head out," He casually continued, pulling out the map once more to consult their next stop. "The giraffe's next!"

Their footsteps echoed as they ascended the stairs back up onto the ground floor and into the main zoo. By the time Sigmund reached the top, he'd committed the path to the giraffes to memory and refolded the map before placing it away again. He turned to Sarah before they headed off, wondering what was going on in that mysterious mind of hers and why she'd been looking at him earlier. She may not have noticed it, but she'd been fidgeting ever since her phone had broken. A part of him wondered whether she was just uncomfortable without something to hold, or whether she was bothered by him in general and just didn't want to admit it. Regardless, he wanted to help if he could.

As they walked along, Sigmund pulled out his phone and briefly hesitated before turning to her and offering it. "I'm not sure what you were looking up on your phone earlier, Sarah... but I've got my hands full with this notepad as is. So feel free to use it. You'd be doing me a favor taking it off my hands for now, honestly." The hazel-eyed lad sincerely spoke. He certainly was glad his left pocket wasn't packed with his Digivice and his phone anymore. His right pocket held his wallet, and was out of the question. So, should she take him up on the offer and hold on to his phone, Sigmund would beam and contently sigh.

Far ahead of them, the safari exhibit inhabited the horizon. It was perhaps the largest exhibit of them all at the Ueno Zoo, encompassing a large swath of land that was home to many herbivores from the savannah. Sigmund's thoughts were filled with the animals they would see and the renowned smoothie bar that was at the edge of the exhibit. What he failed to realize at that moment, however, was that he'd given his fellow student an unlocked phone with photo albums on it. The latest of which catalogued his adventures with his Lunamon in the Digital World.

baby don't cry cause everybody's gotta die sometime

Sarah's feelings were beginning to confuse her because in all actuality, she wasn't sure how she would describe them. She certainly wasn't happy or excited, but she didn't feel mad or depressed either. It wasn't indifference. She merely followed along as Sigmund led her around with absolutely no grasp on her own thoughts. She didn't care to work on this project any more, that much was certain. She could live without seeing giraffes, but there was no reason to say that out loud. The moment her phone had crashed to the floor and she lost her progress, things had changed to some degree. She couldn't be her usual self either. She didn't feel whole without her phone... after all, she was practically an introvert who lived her entire life through electronics.

However, then Sigmund decided to offer her his. The girl squinted her eyes, perplexed by the offer. She didn't get it. Sarah sure as hell never would have trusted anybody else with her phone. Her entire life was on the device after all. It contained her writing, her interests and really every small and intimate detail about her life. Really, she told her phone more than she could see herself telling anyone. Perhaps it wasn't the same for Sigmund... maybe he was so upfront with his life that he had no secrets?

Without much thought, Sarah silently took the phone that had been offered to her. Internally, she debated whether or not she should thank him for it, because it was polite of him to offer and made her feel much more comfortable, however the debate ended with the decision that she need not thank him for it considering he'd been the one to break her phone in the first place. Also, speaking out loud in such a way would have made her feel uncomfortable. A thank you would have been socially out of place, right?

However, from the moment she unlocked the phone, she saw some odd pictures of things she'd... never seen before? Despite that, they had some kind of familiar vibe to them. Sarah was certain she recognized what she saw in some of the images, but at the same time she couldn't put her finger on where she had seen them before other than that it was some kind of familiarity. For a moment, she pondered about asking Sigmund, but ultimately decided to close the pictures because she felt it was none of her business to ask, nor to snoop any further into his images.

It didn't take a social mastermind to understand that Sarah was questioning Sigmund's act of charity. She was clearly full of inquiries and confusion, but she wasn't voicing any of them whatsoever. This concerned the young lad. He wondered if her silence, which he had initially perceived as timidness or quiet anger over her broken phone, actually went beyond that. Maybe there was something wrong with her? Maybe something had traumatized or conditioned her to be unresponsive to other people, and maybe he was pushing it by repeatedly attempting to start a dialogue with her. So it was at this point that he decided he would stop.

He sighed because he knew there was definitely more to her than met the eye. He could feel it. But it was selfish of him to be frustrated over not being able to cajole her true self out of her. Her quietude was a shell she wore that concealed the girl inside-- her likes and dislikes, her past and present, the thoughts that built up the character she really was. And, having worn one of his own for the majority of his lifetime, Sigmund knew the shell was as much a part of her as what it kept within. But only a fraction.

Regardless, he respected that silence of hers as they continued on through the zoo. His excitement and outgoingness had taken a bit of blow, and it was noticeable. But every time their eyes would meet, he would still smile. And it wasn't an imitation of a smile either. The fact of the matter was, Sarah being the enigma she was actually intrigued him. And, although he'd only caught a peek of the person she hid, the young blonde knew there was more to like about her. Something the others clearly didn't see.

At the end of the day, they grouped with their schoolmates and headed back to the hotel. His phone was returned to him, and Sigmund promised to wake up early the next day to knock on Sarah's room door. The plan? Together they would head off to Aizawa's Electronics, the closest electronics store and repair shack to their hotel, to get her phone fixed. They couldn't have known the adventure that awaited them there, however...
