Fandoms: Sword Art Online (Anime & Manga)
06 Aug 2020
Suguha turns off the radio station playing in her room, and suddenly, Sakura's giggles echo into the wooden floors and paper walls. The older girl still dances without the music, twirling in dizzying circles as her melodic laughter escapes her. Suguha can't help but grin at the sight. Gliding forward in her old slippers, she takes Sakura's hands and gives her a smile more brilliant than the full, luminous moon.
"See," she begins, "you don't need to talk to tell me anything. I may not be as quiet as my brother-"
Suddenly, Suguha's grip on Sakura's wrists feels more like cuffs than comfort, and her smile freezes; stiff.
"-but you can still be silent as you like. I know he isn't with us right now, but, but-"
Sakura relaxes as she gets the message Suguha tries to convey to her, and a small grin replaces her awful facade.
"And I... I thou-ght that I h-had the stut-ter."
Or, in which a girl is reborn with knowledge of a past life she definitely shouldn't have, befriends Kazuto Kirigaya pre-SAO, yet still allows him to play the game.
