No Game No Life Volume 3

A Half of the Gamer Siblings Seems to Have Disappeared

At what age do humans become sensitive to their surroundings?

To her, the [Oldest memory] she had was when she was less than a year old.

Although she had already forgotten the first sentence that she had mumbled out.

It was her mother's pale expression after hearing her talk that became her first memory.

Soon afterwards, she was sent to a [White facility].
Surrounded by four walls of utter whiteness, there was a pale-skinned and abnormal girl.

Aside from her, there were also other children, but she didn't really integrate into the scenery.

That was when she was three years old.
The "new father" of the girl brought that person that was seven years older than her to meet her.

When the adults were having mutual-fawning talks, the young boy occasionally smiled.

But that smile did not come from his heart and it could be used to respond to anyone else.
In other words— a smile that contained nothingness and expressionless.

Facing against the boy who was smiling nonchalantly, a mouth was opened before saying out:
