Y/N travelled to Hanamura with their parents when they were eight. She made two good friends there
[You can request the next map!]
You hid behind your mom as you walked around in Hanamura. It was… busy. Not too busy, but still enough to make you uncomfortable.
“Don’t worry, honey… After this we can visit the Arcade!” your dad promised and you quietly nodded.
Your stomach rumbled as your mother let you sit down at a table in the small restaurant. You wanted to be somewhere quiet. All the noise was giving you a headache.
At least you got to go to an arcade next.
It took quite a long time before you actually got your food – you grew impatient quite quick. But then again, there were so many people in here so of course it’d take long. To take your mind of your growling stomach, you decided to look outside – at the cars. One got your attention, though. A black car with black tinted windows, and an official looking flag as ornament.
Only ten minutes later you finally got food.
The arcade was less busy than you expected – honestly. “See anything you want to play?” your dad asked as he knelt down next to you and you nodded, pointing at one Claw crane.
Your mom nodded as your parents followed you to the machine.
Once your father inserted a coin, you started playing. Of course you failed.
“You are doing it wrong” a younger boy next to you said. You frowned and your dad did too.
“Genji!” a female voice yelled. The woman yelled something else you couldn’t understand.
The woman ran towards the younger boy, another boy who seemed to be the same age as you followed closely.
“I’m so sorry… He likes to wander off” the mother excused herself and her son, “He just wants to help because he won once and now thinks he’ll win it forever”.
The older brother crossed his arms, clearly annoyed by his brother’s antics.
“Oh, don’t worry. We don’t mind” your dad brushed it off. Your mom smiled, “Perhaps he could try and help, if you don’t mind?”. The other woman shook her head, “Erm… As long as they’re having fun”.
The woman seemed reluctant at first, but decided to agree anyway.
It has been a while but you still remember what happened. The youngest brother showed you some great and not so great tips on how to play certain games. It took a while for the other brother to loosen up but eventually he also tried to help.
Perhaps you should visit Hanamura again…
