Inspired by… never giving up.

Entry 1

It wasn't easy. I could still remember how that morning started…

"Nii-san, I'm going now!" I yelled behind my back.

"Ah – Mirei, chotto -!"

"No time!"

Onii-san… He gained custody of me after oto-san's negligence and ka-san's death… but with every single time he tried to be concerned abut me all I did was…

Just brush him away…

And now I'm stuck here… I watch as souls of my friends fade bit by bit… Ka-san always told me that life was precious – never give up.

Yes.

Even under these circumstances, I will not give up. I won't.

I was late that morning for the field trip, so I was rushing like a wild tiger was chasing me. I was lucky – Kinomoto sensei was still going for the final calling.

"Final calling – Izumi Mirei!"

"Sensei!"

Yeah… I could still remember the laughter of my classmates at my usual tardiness. Like they said – if Mirei was here, you could bet your life that everyone else had arrived. Then again… that was most likely the last laughter they gave out for a long while later on…

I don't remember a single thing while we were taken hostage… I could just hear the clattering of something like tin cans and then there was gas and… I blacked out…

When I woke up, I found myself in a room with the rest of my female classmates and… I soon found out that Keiko, Chi and Rin were missing… and so was Kinomoto sensei…and, of course, the male students…

And I could see Omasu crying… I got shakily to my feet and walked towards her.

"Daijoubu, Omasu-chan?" I asked. I had no idea what was going on – I had no idea where I was, who brought us here, why they did…

"Mi-Mi-Mirei!" she cried out and then held on to me. The next thing I knew, I could hear the door creaking…

Omasu knocked me out.

I'll try to continue as soon as possible! Please just tell me what you think!
