Kuto awoke to the sound of birds chirping. He slowly sat up, taking in his surroundings. He was in a clearing in the middle of a dense forest. The sun was just peeking over the trees, casting a warm glow on everything. Kuto got to his feet and brushed himself off. He had no idea how he had gotten here or what he was doing here. The last thing he remembered was falling asleep in his bed at home.
He looked around again, trying to get his bearings. Suddenly, he heard someone calling his name. He turned towards the voice and saw a young woman running towards him, waving her arms frantically. As she got closer, Kuto recognized her as his neighbor from back home, Lina .
“Lina! What are you doing here? How did you find me?” Kuto asked , perplexed .
“I don’t know how I found you,” Lina replied breathlessly . “I woke up this morning and suddenly knew where you were.”
