Title: Connecting With You

Everyone has a code of their own since the day they were born.

Only 2% of the entire human population has their own name specially chosen by the System.
These selected people are called β€˜Epithet’.

And that also applies to the girl coded 10402, a broken girl who disconnected herself from every attachment from anyone else in her life.

That is, until she received a message on her AL.

Recently added a short story called Planet Rock:

Responding to the universal cry for affection, I went over and sat down next to him, placing my arm around his shoulders. As I sat there holding his hands in my other hand, trying to comfort him from unknown pains, I thought about what I just witnessed. It was now quite clear I had my arm around not one person, but two. And they did not like each other.
