Her parents were in animated conversation as Isuzu came in. "...I just can't believe it. It just doesn't seem real to me."
Her father nodded. "Yes, such a terrible accident."
Isuzu looked scared. "Somebody died?"
Her mother smiled. "Oh, it's nobody you know, Isuzu-chan. It's the cat's mother."
"Oh, you've never met him. He's the most cursed of all of the possessed Sohmas. They say he has evil luck and can never be happy." She paused. "At least not as happy as we are."
Once again, Isuzu couldn't help thinking there was something wrong with her parents' smiles.
