Part 1-BETWEEN THE SNOW AND THE FLOWER
It's been a warm day since Yuki joined the agencies. Although the Social welfare agency has much recruitment to do after the assault of the nuclear plant incident, so far the blank spot had been filled for now since some of the Fratello are recruited from the neighboring and allied country ….
"Hey Yuki, do you have time? I would love to take you on a walk around the park.. " asked Petrushka who noticed her finished cleaning his rifle.
"Well, Kai's not here….and I'm done cleaning my rifle….so I do have time." Answered Yuki picking up her storybook," At least I've read the entire book given by Kai…"
As Yuki prepare for a walk, she placed her L96 AWS sniper rifle in her AMATI bag and hid it below her bunk.
"The weather here seems no difference from Japan" said Yuki; amazed to see the flower petal bloomed during the summer in Italy. She remembered back when she and Kai get the promotion to cooperate with the social welfare agency in Italy along with the other handler and cyborg.
"Yuki-san, how did you joined the agency? "Asked Petrushka
"…you see, I have this rare disease that unable me to feel pain, but also some strange disease in me that Kai didn't tell me… "replied Yuki with a soft voices.
"Ooh…I see…then if I pinch your cheek does it hurt?" replied petrushka while try to poke Yuki's face and while Yuki try to avoid the poking, both of them laughed as they continued their walk. As they walked around the park, they encountered Claes and rico planting herbs.
"watcha doing?..." asked Petrushka, trying to joke around with claes."Nothing much, just like an ordinary day…planting herbs and vegetable. Rico's here wanted to help me here, so I give her a job to do…"replied claes.
While Rico is planting the flower to the soil, Yuki stood beside her and said" Kawai! What flower is this? It's beautiful and cute!.. "Claes responded" Ooh, this is camellia…I planted it so we can make tea out of it…"
"I can't wait how it will taste like when it's finished" said Rico, while raking down the soil with small rake. Yuki then replied" me too, I can't wait for the tea time when the tea is finished."
"We all get to taste the tea when it's finished…maybe with some cookies I've baked…"Claes replied. When it's time to go, Petrushka and Yuki then said goodbye to them and continue their walking.
"Petra-san" said Yuki, holding her book in his hand" How's your Fratello?" Asked Yuki, curious in her face is seen by Petra.
Petra, who she doesn't know how to answer that question then said "It's a Brother to sister relationship….nothing more" with her hand clasped tightly and her face suddenly turn red. Yuki, realized this, give her a smile and said "you must be lucky to have a Fratello that simply by your side…"
As they walked, they encountered with Kai, Yuki's handler, sitting together with sandro at the bench discussing something."Sandro! " yell Petrushka, running toward Sandro and then hugged him. Kai, who was watching him laughed silently as Yuki slide besides him.
"How's your day Yuki?" asked Kai" Did you enjoy the view around the city?"
"Well…Petra-san showed me the surrounding park..." answered Yuki while hiding her book in his back.
Kai, who realized Yuki behavior, asked" what's that on your back?"
Yuki, handing over her book to Kai which she bought intentionally for Kai "it's for you Kai-nechan….i though you might be bored…."
With a smile on Kai's face, he pinched Yuki's blushed cheek and then said"Next time I'll treat you an Ice cream.." After replying to this, a big smile is carved in Yuki's face whiles both of them walking together toward the Agency's HQ. Inside Yuki's Heart, love seems to grow around her handler hope someday her love will be showed to her handler…if she is still alive.
While watching Yuki and Kai, Petra then said" Maybe you should also buy me an Ice cream…" toward sandro.
"You know, my paycheck still on its way, so you had to hold your stomach for that…"replied Sandro with gimmick on his face. Seeing this, Petrushka poked Sandro's Face and continue to hit him gently while sandro try to avoid Petrushka's arm.
'come on, let's go home…"replied Sandro after tired walking all day long.
"Yes sir." replied Petra who quickly followed Sandro at her back as both of them walked behind the new Fratello…..
