|096 Letter to Ikuko |

Place: Shinari Mountain / Pylon #4
Required: Return to reality
Congratulations on your graduation from high school.
I know I haven't been much of a mother to you, and I can only apologise.
As you may know, I moved to Tokyo right after you were born, and was barely able to squeeze out a living for myself. The best I could do at the time was to take Ryuko with me.
But that's really no excuse, is it?
The other day, I was going through some old boxes and came across a torn picture of the two of you together when you were little girls. I'm sure you were always on Ryuko's mind. I've enclosed the remaining half of the photograph with this letter.
Now more then ever, I sincerely regret separating you from your twin sister.
I'm really worried about her. She's still missing, and nobody's heard from her at all.
Should she show up at your door, please let me know right away.
