I've got a few questions about this chapter.
1) I know that Rae was older than 10 years old, but exactly how old was she when she was sent to live in Japan?
2) Why did the psychiatrist say that she was "pleased" to know that of all of the women that Rae mentioned, the best one was the one that Rae lived with in Japan? (You probably didn't realize how that line could be interpreted, but in my opinion it sounds like a weird thing to say.)
Hi Anonymous! Thank you for your review! :) I appreciate the questions!
1) Great question! Rae was 14 years old when she was sent to Japan. However, soon after being sent there she turned 15 years old. So, freshman year she was 14, sophomore year she and Hiroto were 15, junior year they were 17 and lastly at the end of Accordance, their senior year they were 18 years old. It's also important to note that they were together for three years and added the later part of her arrival freshman year as a "year" being the school/academic year. That's why they said they had been together "four" years :) I hope this made sense lol.
2) Thanks for this question! I am not sure how you interpreted it (I'm curious to know) but by Gupta saying she was "pleased" she was expressing that she was glad that Minako was the mother figure Rae needed most. When all of the other women in her life abandoned her, she expressed happiness that Minako loved and took care of Rae.
Thank you again! I love your questions! Please ask more in the future! <3

Rae is opening up and dealing with the pain. I love that Rae is opening up and allowing the memories to come forth thus allowing the mental and emotional wounds to scab over. Rae you are much stronger that you think. Rae already realizes that with all the things that she went through in Japan she was still happier and loved more than she has ever been loved.
DarkandLovely keep doing what you are doing sweetie. I am so proud of you!!!
