Upon reaching the front gate of the family mansion, he lifelessly push open the gate. Upon entering into the mansion itself, he was first seen by his father, who began by asking where he had been and why he was so late. Naoko didn't answer. He just walked up the circular stairs in the lobby and headed for his room. Seeing this, his father started shouting at him, demanding answers and asking where Evie was. He entered his room and locked the door, not wanting to speak to anyone right now, not even his father. If only his sister was here, he'd have someone to confide in. However, for now, he was on his own.
Now that his mind was more clear, Naoko thought back to what Hina said earlier and his behaviour. He then realized the truth of Hina's words, and how he was just hurting Evie right now. He decided to apologize when Evie got back. Nodding to himself, he lay down on his bed, wondering what he should say.
