    Twin Spica, Volume: 03
    Asumi is going through her growing pains right now.  She knew this new challenge would not be simple.  Mentally and, even with her petite frame, physcially she was prepared for almost anything the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) could throw at her.  Emotionally, however, she was light-years away from being able to even take more than a few attacks on her long suppressed past.  So when Asumi is at her lowest, a longtime friend, of the invisible sort, pays a visit. As he is grappling with his own past, she realizes that there is no way she cannot move forward.  Nothing here can keep her from taking off!
