52 Visiting Misae’s House

 The next day, Kanae woke up earlier and headed towards Misae's house. She had told the Old Man that she wouldn't be able to go to work today. It turned out that the Old Man also closed down the store these two days, so she didn't have to worry about them anymore.

When she walked out of the room, she noticed that the guards were way more than usual. It seemed even her uncle was worried about his daughter safety thus he sent more people to guard the mansion. Come to think about it, should she pay her a visit since she hadn't met with the other party for a long time? After all, her cousin hadn't gone to school for days.

Kanae glanced at the big mansion for a few seconds before retracting her gaze. There was no use going there, the guard would surely stop her even before she could get close. Besides, her relationship with her cousin was not that good, in fact, it was terrible.

Misae's house location was quite far from hers, so she took quite some time to reach the areas. This city was divided into several parts because of the clans and their territory battle. She didn't really remember the dividing line, but she knew that the mansion of Nali Family and Misae's house was in different territory.

Fortunately, there was no need for her to remember them all. Crossing the street, Kanae recalled the way to Misae's house. She went there a few times in the past, so she would not go the wrong way... hopefully.

"Excuse me; do you know the way to North Garden?"

"That way Miss."

After asking questions to the passerby that came out to clean up their belonging, she finally arrived in front of a huge house. Misae came from a well off family, so she knew that her best friend was quite wealthy.

TING TONG

She rang the bell and waited in front of the door. From the outside, it was clear that this house was well maintained. There was a small garden in front of the house, which was filled with numerous flowers. The wall of the house was painted with peach color, giving it a sense of liveliness.

"Yes, who is it?"

"This is Kanae," Kanae answered.

"Oh, little Kanae is here," there were sounds of footsteps before the door was opened. A middle age woman was standing with an apron. She looked like Misae with her blond hair and a broad smile. If only she didn't have any wrinkle, no one would be able to differentiate the two of them.

Kanae smiled. "Good morning, Madam Clara. I'm sorry for disturbing you early in the morning."

Clara was Misae's mother. She smiled happily when she heard what Kanae said. "Don't worry too much. I'm going to work early in the morning, so you're not disturbing me at all."

"That's good to hear," Kanae smiled back.

Seeing the smiling Kanae, Clara sighed. "Misae is still sleeping. You have to wait for some time before she wakes up."

She hoped that her daughter could be a little bit more diligent. Even on the usual days, it was hard for Misae to be punctual as that girl often woke up late if her mother didn't wake her up. Of course, she didn't wish for her daughter to sleep in the class as she had heard about how Kanae usually conducted herself in the school.

"Its fine Madam, I will just wait here," Kanae answered.

Clara gestured for her to take a seat. Kanae picked one of the seats in that dining room and sat down nicely. Before long, a man with a suit came out and looked towards Kanae in surprise.

"I never thought that you would come here so soon, Kanae," he said with a smile.

Kanae smiled, "Because there is no school today, I thought about dropping by. Besides, I don't have anything to do at home."

In truth, she came here early because the fight would soon start. If she came out a bit later, she needed to pay more attention to her way and she might attract unnecessary trouble after this.

"It's good that you come early," Misae's father said with a smile. "It's time for me to go to work, so I can't accompany you two."

Clara rolled her eyes. "Just go, there's no need for you to delay as you'll be late."

He shrugged and after giving Clara a few reminders, he walked away from the house. On the other hand, Clara was busy cleaning up the table and prepared some foods for Kanae.

"You can eat first."

Kanae was stunned. She looked towards the food and to be honest, she was genuinely hungry because she hadn't eaten anything.

"Thank you Madam Clara."

Clara smiled. "You're welcome, Kanae."

Kanae ate the food delightfully. After she had finished, she helped Clara in washing them and the other party was genuinely happy because Kanae wanted to help out.

Clara wiped her hand. "I need to go too. You can make yourself comfortable here."

"Thank you, Madam."

After Clara had gone to work, Kanae was left alone inside the house. She wanted to wake Misae up, but chose to against it as she looked around the house. Before today, she has only come here a few times, but that few times was enough to make her noticed that the room arrangement changed a bit. She didn't know why, but she felt that Misae's family seemed to love arranging the furniture very much.

The house of Misae was really big. It should be expected since her parents were rich and they have high positions in their job. Somehow, Kanae started to miss her own parents, but she couldn't meet with them anymore. Her eyes were still busy watching the surrounding when she heard the door opened and Misae came out, still wearing her pajamas.

"You're early, Kanae," Misae said as she rubbed her eyes to make her stayed awake.

Kanae smiled. "I have to be early to avoid those people who fight on the street at this time."

Misae nodded her head in understanding. She was still rather sleepy, but there was no way she could continue sleeping with Kanae here. Although she slept as usual, her body clock was telling her to sleep because there was no class today.

"Let me wash up first."

Because she thought that no one was in the house, she was still wearing her pajamas. It was a bit embarrassing, but she knew that Kanae would not make fun of her. After taking her time to change her clothes, she returned to the living room.

"Have you eaten anything?"

"Your mother makes me breakfast," Kanae pointed to the dining table. There was another portion made for Misae.

Misae nodded her head. "I'll eat first. After that, let's watch TV. I don't want to spend the entire day teaching you how to cook."

"Yes, chef."

Hearing how Kanae called her, her cheek color turned into red in embarrassment. Still, it didn't feel bad to be called that way.
