embers gather on Emma.

I shout in Japanese, which is different from this world’s language.


Immediately after, My father Leonard says

“OOONEE” while standing up and saluting.

“TTWOO” My mother, Melsa says while standing up and saluting.

“TTHREEE” My older brother, George says while standing up and saluting.

“DAAAA” Me and my younger brother say and push up our fists.

It’s not a roll-call anymore, but from long ago in the Tanaka family, it’s an established custom used to confirm the number of people when we go on a trip.

After we became adults, we don’t go on trips.
Instead, sometimes when we get drunk, someone will start it and make everyone laugh.

It’s super embarrassing when it’s seen by someone outside the family.

Basically, our body moves on its own before we can think about it.
…only if you are a Tanaka family member.

If it were the usual, we would no doubt be laughing about it, but right now everyone is looking blankly… It can’t be helped since they did it reflexively.
Although William particularly didn’t have to do it, he can’t escape from the automatic ‘DAAAA’.

“Gather in Emma’s shed in 20 minutes”

When I spoke in Japanese again, the three nodded with their eyes widen.

I turned around and return to my room.
I have already made preparations, but those stares from the servants hurt.
Let’s quickly run before Martha scold me.

“Huhhh Young lady! You shouldn’t run on the corridor!”


In the end, I was scolded…


Later William told me that it’s fine to just say it normally in Japanese, but that ‘DAAAA’ ritual is proof of the Tanaka family.

Being cautious, I needed to know for sure that it is our Tanaka family before we communicate.

It’s not that I never thought about it…
