Just one more reason I love her  
Tonight was one of the best demachi nights ever.

I had written the Kodama-sensei story in my irimachi letter, and planned to use "Hanagumisei in the audience" as my demachi topic.

I was the only one there for Alice-chan, and a little apprehensive about the lack of staff people, but Harada-san turned out to be there too. She told me that instead of walking the normal direction we were going to head toward Isolabella / the merry-go-round.

Dai-chan came out at the same time, and she and her club walked right behind us, and what with that and the different direction I wasn't getting off to a good start with the actual speaking to my angel. I had gotten as far as "otsukaresama deshita..."

And then she said, "I read your letter -- about Kodama Akiko-sensei."

I don't think I've talked about it on LJ, but some of you have been privy to my club-related whinings. About how stressful it is sometimes to talk with Alice-chan for a whole three minutes, when my Japanese ability tends to fluctuate around her, and I worry so much about the questions I ask and whether or not I'm being too nosy, etc...

But suffice it to say I've never really experienced Alice-chan introducing a conversation topic other than the weather, and only one other time has something I wrote in a letter come up so directly.

I was mentally floored. I managed to say "yes, I was surprised..." but I was also kind of referring to the situation at hand. I pulled myself together to comment that I wasn't really sure if Alice-chan had much experience with Kodama-sensei, but her response was "oh yes, she was the director for the Reimei shinjin kouen."

So then we just fangirled Kodama-sensei, how she's so nice and genki and enthusiastic and helpful and Alice-chan learned a lot from her. And I repeated the bit I had learned about her going to Montreal in September.

The walk was over much too soon, but after telling us to stop Harada-san asked if there was anything else I had wanted to say to Alice-chan. So I still got to talk about Hanagumisei in the audience, who was it again? And Alice-chan said, "Ayane-chan and Yuuzumi Shun-chan..."

"And Kirari-san," I added, and Harada-san teased me for the millionth time for being so knowledgeable.

Kirari had been wiping her eyes with a handkerchief when she got up from her seat, and Alice-chan said it was probably because she's pretty friendly with Ume-chan. How that happened when they're two school years apart and have never been in the same troupe is beyond me, but I find it touching nonetheless. Anyway, of course they all visited backstage after the show.

(If you want a full rundown of who was in the audience: Matobu Sei, Sakurano Ayane, Oozora Yuuhi, Mayuzuki Kou, Sakura Ichika, Mano Sugata, Hinata San, Yuuzumi Shun, Kayou Kirari, Nozomi Fuuto, Shirahana Remi, and possibly one or two others I didn't catch.)

What with today being a national holiday, Soragumi's day off this week was moved to tomorrow, meaning they've performed for seven straight days since last Thursday. Alice-chan is using her belated and much-needed yasumi to... go see two performances herself. ^^;;; I love how she enjoys going to see shows just as much as we do. :3

Oh and anyway, to end the story, I told her to have fun kangeki-ing and she walked toward the parking lot but turned around to wave from the other side of the merry-go-round and then she and Dai-chan headed for the same car.

And I walked away grinning and sniffling to myself. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

It's so awesome that she initiated conversation beyond banalities! Congrats on not hyperventilating on the spot. And thank you for reporting on Yuuhi's whereabouts. <3

Awww, how sweet~~~~~~!

Every now and then they do something like that (for me it was a certain person remembering that I lived in Saitama). It...really makes it all worth it, even more than usual...doesn't it? <3
