The story of the apocalypse
through a Japanese high school student's eyes.
The final days are counting down.
A story of what's truly important in life and how to fight for it.
[Based off the detailed accounts of high school student, Maho Itami, this story is created to replay the last years of Planet Earth.]
"Another brilliant cell phone novel from takatsu." - Subscriber
"All around, ear-piercing sirens exploded.
It was so high pitched, I couldn't tell if I screamed or not.
Then, it started.
The ground started shaking."
My second Japanese style cellphone novel project. I hope I can bring an original take to the apocalypse, or at least give readers a different experience through an authentic Japanese cellphone novel approach.
Chapter 117:- Beauty in the Broken
We left Aya at my house with my parents
and our neighbor who also had a young son,
around the same age as Aya.
My parents told us to get a change of scenery and some fresh air.
So I made Shin wait,
and went off to peer in my bedroom mirror.
I was shocked at how tired I looked,
dark eyebags and pale cheeks.
People would often compliment on my white skin,
but this was not a healthy white.
Even my hair seemed dry and was losing their brown.
Leaving it hanging over my shoulders,
emphasized how dry it looked.
I was usually worrying about my weight,
but I thought I looked too thin for once.
Was I getting old? Unhealthy?
Perhaps past few weeks had taken more of a toil on me that I thought.
I sighed and tucked my hair in a ponytail,
putting on extra make up
and picked out a bright yellow summer dress
hoping it would hide my fatigue.
No matter what, I had to be stronger.
Not just for Shin and Aya but for myself as well.
