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 189:- Changing Tides
We had bunkered down in a bombed out bungalow
on the outskirts of the city,
a week and a half ago,
near a town hall and community centre.
Most taller buildings had been blown to shreds.
I had been relieved when the class returned to the inn early that day.
Because of the reports of "declared war" and the "launch of an aggressive offensive".
I had grabbed Misaki and Risa and told them we couldn't get separated.
If it weren't for being with them,
I might not have kept my sanity,
I would joke from time to time.
They were the only ones who still reminded me of who I was perhaps.
Or of the world we used to live in.
When missiles were launched from North Korea,
we were intending to return to Tokyo early.
But, there had been an enormous influx of travellers
all scrambling to return home or find a safer place.
We might have returned home that day, if it had happened a little later.
But at the end of the day,
when we had finally abandoned
the idea of getting on the train again,
suddenly everything stopped.
