Yuki has a better facial expression during dinner, Eto noticed. For the past week since they came back, he became worried about her condition. Sometimes in the middle of the night, he would wake up as he can't feel her body next to him. Only to find her sitting on the balcony or sitting in front of the dresser. Every time, Eto would see that her mouth is moving, but tried as he might, he could not hear any words. There were times when she would have bad dreams and would suddenly scream that made Eto wake up. It would take him a while to calm her until she would fall asleep.

Eto wondered if her bad dreams have something to do with her past. Yuki herself does not remember the dream as soon as she opened her eyes.

"How was your work, Eto?"

"It was the usual schedule Yuki. I had an extra meeting today with private companies, and met with Kaname Hill, do you remember him?"

Yuki paused for a moment.

"Oh, Hiro's best friend right?"

"Yes, they needed some documents under my office for their business."

After dinner, they went to take a bath together. When Eto suggested it, she was hesitant. But she gave in with his persuasion after a while. When Eto was washing her back, Yuki just sat frozen, until he said he was done. She then washed his back as well, and they entered the tub at the same time. They stayed there immerse in the tub for an hour.

Eto dried her hair, and Yuki felt relaxed.

"I would like to see you with a longer hair Yuki." Eto said out of nowhere, imagining Yuki's bubbly face with a long hair.

Yuki did not say anything, she just smiled at him on the mirror.

When they lay down on the bed, Eto covered her with the blanket, and turned towards her to face her.

"How do you feel?" he asked.

"Better, " she replied, then touched his cheek, "Eto, when can I go back to work? I feel so bored here already. I need to do something to keep my mind off… to help me relax."

Eto understood what she meant. He pondered upon it. If he allowed her to work in the office, he would be able to be with her in case of any emergency. She can just stay in the office and leave all the work to Maki, so she won't be so bored by herself. He realized that if Yuki is kept alone at the house, she might just always think about Sachiko.

"Sure, but can you please wait for a couple of days? I will be busy until Friday. On Saturday, we will have a check-up with your doctor and if she gave the go signal then you can start on Monday again. What do you think?"

Eto noticed that Yuki lost a few pounds. Therefore, he decided not to tell her about the visit of Mariko and Shoto in his office this afternoon. There is no need for her to be stressed about it.

Yuki pouted, but she nodded in the e

hunch is that it was taken off to make the insurance company expedite the monetary claim process."

"As soon as the insurance money was claimed, Sachiko Nakamura, Mariko Sato, and Yuki Nakamura changed their address to Miyazaki. However, based on the record, Yuki Nakamura was never listed as an elementary student in the same year, nor did she requested to be a transfer student. It was not until she was 10 years old that she went back to school as a 2nd grade student. Based from all the facts I have gathered so far, Yuki Nakamura, left Tokyo as Yukina Nakamura, and registered in Miyazaki as Yuki Nakamura. The reason for the slight manipulation of her name could be found within the 2-year period that no activity about her was ever recorded."

Eto clasped his hands together under his chin, his elbows on the table. This is getting complicated, he thought.

"Mr. Yasuo, thank you so much for everything that you have done for me about this. Rest assured that you will be well-compensated. However, I may have to ask to terminate your investigation now."

The investigator looked at him questioningly. Eto touched the aluminum box to catch the investigator's attention.

"This box was left to me by Yuki's grandmother, Sachiko Nakamura. I think this will tell me everything about her past that I need to know. If I need more, I will contact you again, Mr. Yasuo. It was a job well done. Thank you so much."

The investigator understood his cue. He then stood up and bowed at Eto. When he was near the door, Eto called out his name. He turned.

"I believe that you know this already Mr. Yasuo, but just in case, let me remind you that all the information about this should be kept a secret up to your grave." Eto's voice has a finality on it.

"Of course I understand, Senator Iguchi. Have a good night."
