"Ok ok just calm down"
"would you mind if you showed Jeremiah to his room"

Meanwhile Sakura was running along trying to decide which room when suddenly
"hello who are you" asked Kaolla appearing out of nowhere
"ahh it's Sakura" sounding surprised
"My Kaolla Su"
"ok... what do you do here?"
"I invent stuff"
"what sort of stuff"
"weapons, robots" Su stopped noticing the dumbfounded Sakura
"what" asked Su
"your" said a quivering Sakura
"your the first friend I've had that's interested in robotics" beaming from ear to ear
"really" asked a surprised Su
"do you want to see my Mecha Tama's?"
"Yes please" ..."no I can't" sounding a bit disappointed "I've gotta choose a room to sleep in"
"then can I come along"
"Now let's find me a room". They walked off together.
While Sakura and Su was looking a room for Sakura, Sakura noticed the Manager sign over Keitaro room
"hey Su who's room that's" pointing at Keitaro room
"That's Keitaro's room"
"let's have a look"
"yeah" opening the sliding door and taking it all in
"wow what a room" noticing the hole
"what's that" pointing at the hole separating Naru's and Keitaro room.
"That's the hole between Keitaro and Naru room"
why don't mummy and daddy sleep together wondered Sakura
"let's go up there"
"yeah" Sakura climbs on Su shoulders and she pushes the piece of wood from the hole pulling herself into Naru's room then she helped Su up as well.
"Wow" said Sakura looking around Naru room Sakura notices the Liddo-kun
"well I'm going to work on my mecha tama"
"ok then bye" not really paying attention to Su as she jumped through the hole. Sakura was staring at the Liddo-kun
"mama" she says tears starts showing around hers eyes
"mama" she says again fighting back the tears until finally gives in grabs the stuffed animal and starts crying.
Naru came into the room sees Sakura crying like a hidden reflex immediately she dashes to Sakura kneeling down to eye level and asks
"what's wrong sweetie"
was all she could make from Sakura sobs but that all she needed
"come here" she said with peacefulness only to mothers
Sakura gladly accepted and ran into her arms still crying as she wrapped her arms around her and comforted her
"it's alright it's alright"
"let it out" as Sakura wept about her mother.
Keitaro slides open Naru door to ask her something but sees hers holding the wreck that is Sakura and quietly slides the door back to leave Sakura and Naru alone.
After awhile she calms down and asks this question
"why don't you and daddy sleep together?" This question dumbfounded Naru as she stumbled she says
"Well um ...er ...we hmmm..." then she yells out for Keitaro
"can you help me with this question"
"what...well what's the question" asked a surprised Keitaro
"why don't you and Mummy don't sleep together?" Keitaro also dumfounded by the question
"well.. er.. we...arn't" sighing
"what" asked a confused Naru
"why don't we spend the night together as a family"
"Yah" blurted out a excited Sakura
"well um Sakura"
"why don't you go down and get your things" smiles Naru
"sure" and she runs off out of earshot she turn on Keitaro
"What mean by spending the night exactly Keitaro"
"well er ... me you and Sakura spend the night in your or my room"
"that's ok then"
"I just have 2 questions"
"what are they"
"whose room are we spending the night in and"
"what would we say if anyone heard about this"
"well I think my room its safer incase Sakura sleep walks she won't injure herself from falling through the hole and ...
I would feel more secure"
"what do you mean by secure your saying my room isn't secure!"
"no it's not that"
"it's just that I would hmmmmm"
"where do you want to sleep?"
"well um" thinking but ends up agreeing with Keitaro on sleeping in his room
"but I think we should this"
holding the Liddo-kun doll
"be put in your room as well if we do sleep together"
"well it reminds her about her parents"
"ok that would be nice"
"as for what we would say is"
"that we thought it would be best to we spent the night as a family to help forget about what she has lost." "Alright then" pausing
"do you wanna help me move my futon and Liddo-kun down to your room"
"I'll get changed"
and he left and came back in 5 minutes and help Naru get her futon and Liddo-kun down to Keitaro room.
"I got my stuff" Sakura yelled as she came in the three of them helped her to set her futon. They tucked in Sakura then Naru and Keitaro go into their separate beds they said goodnight to each other and drifted into sleep.
