In Her Eyes

You met Cherry through the roleplay community, where you take on roles of different characters you've created and create collaborative stories with strangers on the Internet. Though the two of you have never met, you and her develop a close bond like which you've never experienced before. Though you have never touched, you are connected. This bond of yours will stay with you for the rest of your life. Jump into the world of roleplay and anime from the early 2000's as you learn about the world of a person you've never met.
