  5. S T O R Y ( I N T R O D U C T I O N   O N L Y)
July 20, the first day of summer holiday. Both of your parents are in 
Bangkok (For people who don't know where is Bangkok, Bangkok is the
Capital of Thailand). Your father was transfer there in Spring, and 
your mother went to visit him in Thailand. You are happy that your
mother is not with you because she will treat you like child asking
you to study. So, this is the first day of your freedom.

Then, there is a doorbell. You start to think who it is. Could it be
newspaper delivery? Or milk delivery? Oh, right! From today onwards,
Aya-chan will start bring you dinner. Aya-chan is your childhood
friend, lived in the neighbourhood. You have been with her in 
elementary, middle and high school. She is like a little sister to you.
She worried about you living alone for the summer that she promised
to bring dinner to your house. She is a kind and really good girl.
She is pretty popular in highschool too. It seems that she received
love letters from underclassmen.

The bell rings for the second time. This time you run to the door, as
you thought it is not good to let her wait any longer. However, you
are surprised to find a beautiful girl, when you open the door. She
greet you. You asked her who she is. She remind you that she is 
Sato Yuka and a relative of yours, while scolding you that you should
at least remember your relative. She also remind you that you met
her in your great-grandfather's funeral. You don't remember her, but
start to remember a couple of your cousins. Then, you remember a girl
who suddenly push you down the slide. You were scared at that time to
go down the slide, and she is the one that push you down the slide. She
asked you not to forget such a bad thing. However, she is relief that 
you remember her. She had walked quite far from the station. And when
she got lost, she asked a handsome guy the way to this house. Then, 
she ask you whether you got empty room. You say you got. She asks you
to let her stay. Here, you got the first set of choices. Choose choice
'A', it is not really good to let her stay in your house because your
parents are not there. She says that your mother told her that she
can come any time long time ago. You say that it already been quite 
some time ago. She asks her whether you are the type of guy who lose
control and attack a girl. You quickly deny it. She says that then 
it is only and that she won't attack you, so you don't have to worry.
Then, she bend down and beg you. (A CG). You noticed her breast and
start to give in.

You lead her to her new room, and leave her luggage in the room. Choice,
you ask her why she come to the countryside. She said that the plan for
a trip suddenly got cancelled, and she wants to go to some place. Then,
she remembers what your mother said and come here. She feels glad that
your parents are not there because if they are there, she probably can
only stay for about 3 days or so. So, she is probably going to stay 
for the rest of the summer.

Then, there is the doorbell again. You go and see who it is, and saw 
that it is Aya-chan bringing dinner for you. Aya-chan realizes there 
is a nice smell. You tell her it is probably from Yuka-san, a distant
relative of yours. In addition to that, you also tell her that Yuka-san
is going to stay over for the rest of summer. Then, she say that she
doesn't need to bring food to you anymore because Yuka-san probably
can cook for you and she run away. Here is another set of choices, as
you wonder why she said and did that. Choices are not important.

You came back to the living room. She ask you about Aya-chan. After 
that, she ask you whether the dinner is ready. You told her that she
is the one who is going to be staying over, so she should be the one 
to cook. She tell you that she doesn't know how to cook. You are 
surprise. So, at the end, it is decided that you do the cooking and
cleaning up after dinner, while she do the housekeeping. You don't know
how to cook well and Aya-chan did bring you some dinner. 

And so, the hot summer begins...

  6. G E T T I N G   A L L   T H E   E N D I N G S
There is 11 endings total. 7 of them are Yuka-chan's and the other 4 is
Aya-chan. One of Yuka-san's endings is the worst ending, where she will
go back to Tokyo halfway in the game. To get that, you must have made
some very bad choices. For example, laughing at her when she is 
scared watching the show. :D 

First, I would like to point out the only really important choices in 
the game and how to answer those choices to get each endings. Of course,
you must AVOID making choices that leads you to the worst ending. 

To get the best endings, you have to have either blue shiori or red shiori 
for your save game. To get a shiori, you have to finish the game once with
good/best endings. Finishing good/best endings for Yuka-san will earn you
a blue shiori and finishing good/best endings for Aya-chan will earn you
a red shiori.
