I jumped, scared. This ball of fluff----she was talking to me? With a shaky breath, I smiled uneasily at her. "Hey, now...I'm not gonna make fun of ya, or anything."
She blinked, and looked up at me, her eyes shining a bright red. "Y-you won't?" "Nope."
The girl's name was Mary Kozakura.
And she was like a puffball, ever so innocent.
"___! There you are!" Mary looked down at me, smiling sweetly. She was holding a tray, with various yummy-looking food treats on there.
"I-I made these for you, actually..." She was blushing. Wow, she's actually blushing!
"Thank you, Mary." I went to grab a small treat, when suddenly, Mary accidentally slipped on her own two feet, making the treats and tray fall and break in a quick, rumbling earthquake.
We were quiet for a moment, Mary covered in sweets, me looking at her from the couch, gaping.
"I'm so sorry, ___! I didn't mean to do that!" Mary began to stand back up, but fell
I first met him when I was working part-time as a newspaper delivery girl. I was just a sixteen year old girl, and I needed a couple of cash for my savings. We coincidentally met while working. He was such a kind and carefree guy, so it was fun working with him. We met up a lot of times after that. We'd think that we would never see each other again after one would leave a job, but then, we would suddenly meet each other while looking for another job.
We became friends and co-workers.
In the end, he took me to meet with his other friends called the 'Mekakushi-dan'. It was just supposed to be a friendly visit. Supposed. Suddenly, a blonde guy by the name of Kano Shuuya came up to me and started explaining stuff about their group. The others looked exasperated as he explained, but unknowingly, I just listened to him. And then their leader, Kido Tsubomi, came up to us, saying that I'd have to join their gang since the idiot just carelessly told me about
There was nothing much to do in the house except surf the internet, so I thought of going to a place where nature was plenty―the park. With my earphones plugged in my ears, I began to walk around the greenery. There was a playground at the side, so I decided to check it out. No one was sitting on the swings, and, being the sixteen year old I was, bounded my way towards the playground equipment. I claimed one of the swings as I browsed in my phone.
There was a kid standing beside me, I noticed. I didn't mind him though, since there were a lot of kids in the playground. They were all pretty noisy as they played, but I had my earphones on, so the noise wasn't much of a problem. The kid beside me was.
The brat had rudely pulled my earphones away, disturbing me as I minded my own business. I showed a bewildered look, about to scold him.
"―was talking to you!" I heard him suddenly shout. I backed away a bit.
I raised an eyebrow at him, tilting my head
I would wake up late, eat, and then bathe. After that, I would surf the internet to my heart's content. A typical routine for a sixteen year old girl. Of course, since it was spring break, I could do that. I was a bit of a lazy-ass, so I didn't want to go out of the house unless necessary. But then, something terrible happened. Well, my mouse was pretty old, and it was to be expected, but I nearly cried when I found out it wasn't working anymore.
My parents refused to leave the house at that time, so I was forced to go out and buy a brand new mouse myself. I couldn't wait for another day since I could be really impatient. Besides, I couldn't survive without the internet for that long. I went to a nearby mall and into the department store, and bought a new mouse.
That's when I met him.
He looked so frail and scared, as if he was a lost child looking for his parents in the middle of the mall. Although it was seriously we
