Oh, yes I understand what you mean….It’s a very cozy time of year isn’t it? I’d like it more if I didn’t feel so cold all the time…But it’s the cold that makes it cozy, right? …Don’t worry about that, though. I’d feel bad if you helped out.
….I don’t know if everyone’s left, but it has been much quieter. Maybe they’re busy?
Exactly. It is a vicious circle of being cozy and it is tough to break out of it. But we will triumph in the end! I think. .. oh, but as your brother I naturally always want to help you out.
Maybe. As long as they are fine and come back it’s all good, though, I suppose.
I’ve been really sluggish…Since it’s started getting colder, but other than that I am just fine. I’m trying to make extra money for Christmas presents.
…It’s hard to get out of bed when it’s cold, isn’t it? Staying in bed is much, much cosier and warm, I think.
Ahh, I see. Though when this time of the year comes I get more sluggish automatically.. with all that comfortableness and stuff. Oh? I wish I could properly help you out with that.
Indeed..! It saves energy to stay. But I figured I should get out, I was afraid everybody suddenly left.
Right, it has been very quiet lately….I’m glad that you’re back though, Big Brother.
I bet you were sleeping a lot, weren’t you?
It’s good to be back and to see you so soon. How are you doing, Chiaki?
… yes, indeed. A little too much, I assume. I made myself a little too comfortable since it got colder, though I also used the time the play some games.
No, no…It’s still the very beginning of December, we have 23 days yet until Christmas.
There’s still plenty of time for cookies and to decorate.
Phew! I wasn’t very sure, when I think about it I should have noticed, though, but it’s been very quiet lately and I haven’t seen many people around so..
Neat! That’s a relief.
Okay everyone stop what you’re doing, sit down.. .
Four Persona Games
Big brother! Merry (not quite yet) Christmas.
Little sister! Is it not yet? I have no idea, I don’t even know what day we have.
Then there is still time to make cookies and all that, right.. .?
I woke up. Merry Christmas!
Mhmmmmmm~ Okay! And and— Ibuki’s hugs will help you a lot being successful in the things you can’t do!
[ Not as worried as earlier, she puffs her bright red cheeks and nods energetically, beaming with pride at the wordless positive feedback she got from his face. She takes a big chunk of her ration and gulps it down all at once, chewing loudly and making a big HMMMMM pleased sound. ]
It’s not bad indeed! Ibuki didn’t mix the salt with sugar!
[ Chikao nods and blushes himself, slowly eats his share of the pancakes. For a moment, she looks like Kirby to him the way she gulps it all down. Amazing how she does not even choke. Well, that’s for the best. The gamer makes a few noises of approval himself while eating ]
Mhh.. thankfully. They’re very tasty, thank you.
[ Time flew by rather quickly and he finishes his plate, and pats his stomach in satisfaction. Soon after yawns, and closes his eyes for a few seconds. A nap sounds about right. ]
Well, you’re saying the next episodes… right now Ibuki didn’t get much out of it. Are you gonna let Ibuki make the decisions then? That does sound fun… hope she won’t do the wrong ones.
[ Whether they’re wrong or not, she just loves that kind of games where the fate of characters is up to you through choices and paths… like SIM dating games, indeed. ]
Sure. Since not much is happening in this, I wanted you to get a feel of the concept and of how you have to handle it. There are four more episodes.
[ He, too, enjoys these games a lot, especially seeing how different the endings can be is very appealing to Chikao. That’s why he spent lots of time with this one, or many others that offer different endings. Too bad not many games offer this system ]
