Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!

We’re in a hotel in Houston tonight, me, Suzuka, Haruna, and Yuki.  Their flight leaves at stupid o’clock tomorrow, and we need to drop them off.

I’m glad Yuki’s here.  I might cry a lot tomorrow.

But Haruna’s crying a lot tonight.  She’s really weepy for some reason.  I guess she’ll miss me.  She said that when I go to Japan to look her up, we’ll be besties and she’ll show me all the good spots.  I mean, I have family there too, but that’s a nice offer and I’m going to take her up on it.

I have lots of friends in Japan.

Suzuka is a little more reserved, as she always is, but she said the same thing applies, to look her up when I’m in Japan.  They’re actually not best friends, but they get along well enough, and both of them accepted the offer to do the idol thing.

I asked them why they agreed to do it even though it didn’t pay much.  Haruna just shrugged and said it was something to do.  Suzuka said she wanted an excuse to go to America.  So I guess it all worked out.

We took them souvenir shopping today and they loaded up.  There’s a Buc-ees on the way and they got another industrial sized bag of beaver nuggets.  And a couple other things.

I have at least two graduations to attend later this week, and…  Liz and I are going to do something fun next weekend.  We haven’t decided what, but I think both of us deserve it.  We haven’t spent a lot of time together lately anyway.  She had to do her school stuff for graduation, etc… and that’s not an issue anymore.

We’re going to bed now.  Stupid o’clock, remember?

Love you all!!! ❤️

And so closes the “idols come to visit” story arc.

Truthfully I didn’t feel like I did a very good job with it, but I guess it was good enough.  I kind of feel like I could have done more with their characters.  But, alas.  At least for now, I didn’t.
