Third Shadow

Hey, it's a little late, but... Thanks for all the presents, everyone! I really appreciate it! Though I'm still not too sure what to do with the kimono...

It's kind of weird to be celebrating a new year when you can hardly remember what happened in the past one, but I guess that's just part of the deal when you're in Memento Eden. Does anyone know what year it is now, anyway?

New Years here seems to be kind of subdued compared to back home. From what I remember, we all had the day off from classes. Not only that, but everyone got fancy kimono and extra good food. We couldn't go home and visit our families, of course, but most people are allowed to get letters from their families for the new year.

One year, I dropped by the elementary division to deliver a present for a friend, since January 1st is her birthday. I don't remember her name, but I hope she had a good one this year, too. While I was there, we all pounded mochi and ate it up once we were done. Some people got stuck together because of that, but that's just part of the risk, haha. Too bad I don't have any of that powder with me anymore.

I'm a little worried about that invitation that two of the girls got, though... Hmm...

((OOC: 1% on general rules of Alice Academy, 2% on chapter 54/hanging out with the elementary kids on New Years))

I don't know what year it's supposed to be here, but back home I think it's 2006 now.

What's mochi, anyway?

2006, huh...

You don't know? It's this pasty stuff made out of rice. It's kind of sweet and sticky, and most people make it on New Years for some reason.

Yeah. What year is it supposed to be where you're from?

You can make sweet paste out of rice? I've never heard of stuff like that!

I don't really remember. I know we were celebrating a new year, but I can't remember what year it was actually for.

Yeah! It's really tasty. Which is good, because if nobody at any, that powder wouldn't have worked.

Oh. Any idea what year it could be?

Wait--what powder? And what's it supposed to do?

...Sometime in the 2000s? I'm not really sure.

Mochimochi powder. Don't remember where I picked it up, but it's this stuff that makes you get stuck to whoever made the mochi you ate for a couple of hours. From what I remember, it got almost all the kids there.

Oh, cool. I don't think there are many people from the 2000s here. Not like I usually ask anyway.

Whoa, really? This mochi stuff just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Really?

You don't usually add mochimochi powder. Actually, I don't think many people know of the stuff. I just thought it'd be a good prank for starting off the year.
