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 159:- Sleepwalking
It was past one thirty and I was so tired
the comfort of the futon was beckoning.
In the mirror, I realized we had left with just tshirts and shorts on,
my feet only wearing slippers from the inn.
I looked tired but calm;
even my hair was straight and untouched,
despite my churning thoughts and the empty feeling inside.
In the deep of the night, even those feelings seemed muted,
I felt so numb and lost.
Like everything was moving in slow motion.
Alone in the dark.
For the first time,
I wanted to go back home,
back to school,
back to my family,
back into Shin's arms.
No matter what happened,
no matter how many more troubled nights there would be,
no matter how many arguments there would be,
no matter how many earthquakes, protests and deaths,
I would go through it all.
I just wanted to be back home.
I felt the aching pain
stretch through my chest,
and I watched the tears
stream down my cheeks,
silently and unrestrained.
