OOC: This is gonna be pre-KS, set around the time Emi and Rin would have come to the school. Also, I’m an idiot who only just now realized the problem with doing this ask meme for Rin.
Rin was lying on the bed of her new dorm, exhausted from the hustle and bustle of her parents coming in and out to get her situated. The whole ordeal could have been done hours ago she thought, since she didn’t see much of a point to most of the things they’d filled the room with, but she hadn’t objected when they were initially packing up the car because she’d gotten distracted by a passing butterfly. It was getting pretty late at night and her first day of classes at Yamaku was tomorrow, but just before she drifted to sleep she was suddenly jolted up by an interrupting memory.
Her mother had told her to meet her roommate so someone could help her dress and undress.
Emi was pacing around her new dorm room nervously, unsure of what to do with herself. She’d originally planned to make a dash for the boy’s dorm to meet her soul mate, but she’d lost track of time and looking at the numbers on her wrist she realized there was no way she’d make it in time. Did this mean she’d missed her opportunity? Or would the boy be the one to take the initiative and come to her door? The thought of that burned her up a little, she always took charge of pretty much anything she was involved in.
"Wait, what am I doing?! He’s not going to know which room I’m in, I have to at least get out of here!"
Emi swung her door open at just the second that Rin had managed to open hers, and the two girls locked eyes the instant Emi’s numbers hit zero.
Rin was the first to speak, noticeably less stunned by this first meeting than Emi was.
"Hello. I’m Rin. I need you to help me out of my clothes."
"Eeeehhhhh???" Was the only noise Emi could manage. Not only was her soul mate apparently a girl, but she was making such a direct sexual advance within the first second of meeting! Even though we’re soul mates, should we really be doing… those sorts of things so soon? She thought to herself.
"You seem confused. Clothes are really tricky for me, you see," Rin said, waving her tiny arms in front of her uselessly. "So my mother used to help me get dressed and undressed but now my mother is not here. So I need you to help me out of my clothes so I can go to sleep tonight."
Emi relaxed a little; the request was still strange, but at least it made a lot more sense than what she’d originally thought. But something still seemed amiss; this strange girl was acting like this was just your average first meeting with any random stranger! Well, not any random stranger, you wouldn’t ask any random stranger to help you get dressed and undressed every day, but a stranger who happened to live across the hall from you.
It took a few seconds for Emi to realize that Rin had no arms, which of course meant no numbers to let her know when she was supposed to meet her soul mate.
Rin tilted her head to the side as she looked at the flustered girl across the hall. Why wasn’t she saying anything? Rin thought she’d explained pretty well her predicament and needs, but maybe not. Or maybe this girl was just stupid or something. Either way, she wasn’t responding, and Rin needed to get to bed soon, undressed or otherwise. ”I would really rather not go to sleep in my clothes.”
"Oh, uh, yeah. Right, I’ll ah, I’ll help you with that," Emi finally replied. If this girl didn’t realize she’d just met her soul mate, how was this going to work? She decided to just show Rin her wrist and hope she could put it together. "But, ah, first, look at this!" With that she bounded up to Rin and put her wrist right in her face.
Rin examined Emi’s arm for a while, paying less attention to the numbers on it and more attention simply to the fact that it existed at all. ”Yes, you have arms that will be very good for helping me in the mornings and evenings. Your application has been accepted and you can start work as soon as possible, preferably now if you can.”
"No, Rin, I’m not showing you my arm, I’m showing you my wrist!"
Rin looked puzzled, not entirely sure what difference it made. The wrist was a part of the arm and just as necessary to get Rin undressed as the rest of the limb, didn’t this girl realize she’d have noticed it in her preliminary examination? After a moment Rin simply shrugged and said, “The wrist is good too. You’ll need that to help me get undressed.”
Emi wondered if this girl was being intentionally difficult. ”The numbers! Look at the numbers on my wrist!”
Rin let out an exasperated sigh, and took note of the line of zeroes on Emi’s wrist before saying, “How very nice that you have met your soul mate. Perhaps I should ask him for help instead? You seem to be fairly occupied pointing out pointless things to people.”
Emi wanted to strangle this girl, which was an odd way to feel within the first minute or so of meeting your soul mate. ”No, you don’t understand! These numbers just hit zero now!”
Rin looked down the hall both ways, noticing there was no one else here that could be Emi’s soul mate. Rin wasn’t sure how that was supposed to work, she’d never bothered to find out since she didn’t have any numbers to begin with. ”Well, it would appear as though you have just missed him, unless he is hiding in your bedroom in which case I will just let you get to that and go to sleep fully clothed.”
Talking to this girl was giving Emi a headache! Emi rubbed her temples with her fingers, her face contorting to make her frustration quite clear, though perhaps not to this dunderhead of a soul mate. ”Rin. The numbers hit zero. At the exact. Second. I. Saw. You. I don’t know how else to make it any more clear that you. Are. My. Soul mate!”
Finally the light bulb turned on in Rin’s head as well, and she wondered why this girl couldn’t have just said that in the first place. ”Well in that case I have no idea why you are taking so long to help me get undressed.”

"cool lol" tHEYRE ACTUALLY TESTING TO FIND OUT IF WE’RE LIVING INSIDE A COMPUTER SIMULATION AND YOUR RESPONSE TO THAT IS
They’ve done the tests, and have evidence that our universe may actually be a simulation: http://www.nature.com/news/simulations-back-up-theory-that-universe-is-a-hologram-1.14328
It’s less that we may be living within a computer simulation, but more like the foundations of our universe ( the laws of physics) are written on a lower dimensional plane, and the observable universe that we see is a projection (simulation) up onto a higher dimension.
are you telling me that
we’re in someones fucking sims game
I knew it.
