"What's what?"Tomoyo asked.
"There, in that alley," Kinji said still pointing.
I slowly toward it, I had a bad feeling about it. After I got a closer look, it took me awhile to realize I was screaming.
"Dude, what did you find? Kinji asked in concern.
"AAAHHHH!" Tomoyo screamed.
"Oh my God!" Kinji yelled.
We saw a man brutally murdered. He had bite marks all over his face and body. The bites look like an animal attacked him.
"We gotta call the police," Tomoyo said with a scared look.
"Already on it," Kinji said.
What is happening? First, I lose my memory and now this. What's going on here.
The police finally got here. The whole crime was taped and everything. Coming out of a police car, two people walked toward us. A young man and a small girl.
The man had short spiky white hair. He was wearing a white suit, a blue waistcoat, black shoes, gray trenchcoat, black belt with a sliver buckle and black gloves. His eyes were oddly shut.
The little girl had long, cream white hair with curls. She was wearing a smart, sleeveless black and white double breasted dress with pink stockings and black shoes with gold buckles. She also had a black bow tied around her head.
"I'll check out the body," the little girl said.
"Okay, I'll talk to the witnesses," the young man responded.
The girl skipped off to the body while the man came to us.
"Hello there, I'm Tengan Kazuichi," the man said "I'm the detective of this case."
"Hello sir," Kinji said.
"I apologize for asking, but I need to know everything of when you three saw the body," Tengan said.
"Oh, we were leaving school and Kinji noticed something in the alley," Tomoyo said.
"Shoushun went to in to get a closer look then screamed," Kinji added.
"It's true," I said.
"It seems to three are just mere witnesses," Tengan said, "but you can never not sure."
The little girl came back.
"Brother, I noticed something about the corpse," the little girl said.
"What's that," Tengan asked.
"The man's left hand was missing, couldn't find it anywhere," the little girl answered.
"Just like the last two bodies," Tengan said.
"The last two?" I asked.
"Yes, all three victims had their left hands missing," the little girl answered.
"Wait, how old are you?" Kinji asked.
"She's eleven, and my little sister," Tengan said.
"Maka Kazuichi, Miss Junior Detective," The little girl said.
"Thank you for your information, we must go now," Tengan said, "come along sis."
"Alright bro," Maka said.
"Well that was creepy," Tomoyo said.
"I guess," Kinji said, "looks like we'll have to reschedule the arcade then."
"Sorry," I said to Tomoyo.
"It's fine, see y'all tomorrow," Tomoyo said.
Tengan and Maka are riding in a police car.
"They had their left hands missing," Tengan said to himself.
"What was that?" Maka asked.
"Nothing, just thinking," Tengan said.
We got back to Kinji's apartment. The moment we came in, the news was show the crime scene.
"The third victim was college student, Teruki Kutoba. His body was covered in bites, possibly dog bites. And just like the last two victims, his left hand was nowhere to found. There were witnesses, but we were unable to get a hold on them," an announcer said.
"Another victim, this is becoming serious," a man sitting on the couch said.
"Oh, hey dad," Kinji said.
"Oh, Kinji. I didn't hear you come in," the man said, "and who's this?"
"This is Shoushun Tsurugi, he's going to be staying here until otherwise," Kinji said.
"Hello, I'm not taking advantage of your place," I kindly said.
"I don't mind, just don't leave a mess," Kinji's father said.
"Thank you so much," I said.
"As for you, Kinji, you're already helping people," Kinji's father said, "soon you will become a doctor to even save people."
"Right, I need to get to studying," Kinji said.
"Okay," Kinji's father said.
"I didn't know you're also going to be a doctor," I said.
"Well, it's a back up plan," Kinji said, "I'm really working on this."
He handed me manga pages. The story is about a young man learns the secret about the island he lives in, and he has special powers. Along the way, he has six men who all fall in love with him. This looks really good. The artwork is amazing, the script is well written, and the plot twist are quite unexpecting.
"Did you make this?" I asked.
"Yeah, I'm going to be a manga author," Kinji answered.
"This is amazing, and so original," I said.
"Thanks," Kinji said, "it's a yaoi harem. It's meant for a female audience, but I see you seem to like it too."
"Does your dad know?" I asked.
"Not exactly, I keep this to myself," Kinji answered.
"Have you tried getting this published?" I asked.
"It's been published," Kinji said, "I got my editor, and I make big money off of it."
"Well good for you," I complimented.
"Thanks a lot," Kinji said.
After Tomoyo talked about the Worry Not Game, I wanted to try it.
"Do you wanna try the Worry Not Game?" I asked.
"Yeah sure, just to see what the fuss is about," Kinji answered, "we'll get our Breakers tomorrow."
"Okay," I said.
Kinji knew a guy that works a local toy store. The store was called "Toy Fu-May". We came in seeing a guy sweeping in front of the register. He had black hair with the ends dyed gold, into a sharp quiff and was wearing blue long sleeve shirt, dark green pants, white shoes, and a pink apron with the toy store's logo.
"Hey, Hamato," Kinji said.
"Oh, hey Kinji," the worker said. He let out a big yawn.
"This sleepy head is Hamato Ozu," Kinji said to me, "He goes to our school, but in a different class."
"Nice to meet you," Hamato said.
"You too," I said.
"So, you guys came to buy Breakers?" Hamato asked.
"Yeah, how did you know?" I asked.
"There have been people buying them all over Tokyo," Hamato answered.
"How much are they?" Kinji asked.
"A hundred yen," Hamato answered.
"Great," Kinji said.
"Hope you guys feel lucky," Hamato said.
"Why's that?" I asked.
"There's a Breaker deep in there made of metal," Hamato said, "only one."
"We'll on look out," Kinji said.
Kinji paid for the Breakers and we said our goodbyes to Hamato.
It's late at night and Kinji is getting the computer ready for the Worry Not Game. The two of us open our boxes that held our Breakers.
"Sweet, I got orange, my favorite color " Kinji said, "and you?"
I opened my box to feel something metal. I then realized I had the metal Breaker in my hand.
"Woah dude, you got lucky," Kinji said.
"Lucky me," I said.
There was a piece of paper, on it was the rules for the Worry Not Game.
1. Have your computer on the game site and wait until 12:00, midnight.
2. Close your eyes and think of your worst fear.
3. Once you have your worst fear on your mind, put the Breaker on your left wrist.
If you're playing with a friend, do not tell them your worst fear.
All of a sudden, the computer screens changes from white to purple. The screen shows in golden words, "Think of your greatest fear." I closed my eyes. In my mind, I saw myself surrounded by a circle of people. They start asking me questions.
"Remember that one time?"
"We used to do that, remember?"
"Don't you know me?"
No, I don't remember that. I can't remember anything.
"How could you not remember?"
"We're best friends, how could you not?"
I just don't know. Stop asking me! Why can't I remember anything!?
Then I heard a small click. I opened my eyes and saw my Breaker on my wrist.
"Well, that's it," Kinji said, "we'll see what happens later."
"Okay, goodnight," I said.
"Goodnight,"Kinji said before going to sleep.
So my worst fear is my amnesia.
Another day, still nothing came up.
"Come on, Shoushun," Kinji said.
"Okay," I said.
Regular class was going on. All of a sudden, I keep getting this annoying headache.
"Tsurugi, is everything alright?" Mr. Akamatsu asked.
I tried to tell him I'm okay, but I instead grunt in more pain.
"Shoushun, are you okay?" Kinji asked shaking my arm.
"Mr. Tsurg-" Mr. Akamatsu tried until he stopped talking.
Not only that, but he stopped in place like time had stopped. The lighting was also in a shade of purple, and the sun was blue.
"Shoushun, what just happened?"Kinji asked.
Kinji and I are the only ones still moving.
"What happened," I asked.
"Shoushun look," Kinji said.
He pointed out the window showing a bird in the air, only it's not moving. It's just floating there.
"Has time stopped?" Kinji asked.
"I don't know," I answered.
We then left the classroom to look around. Everything was frozen in place. We then heard something coming.
"Do you hear that?" Kinji asked.
"Yeah," I answered.
Coming from the end of the hallway was a big floating white ball with black vertical stripes. It stopped moving forward and turned to us.
"What the hell is that?" Kinji asked.
"I don't know," I answered.
The black and white ball then grew big red lips, with creepy looking teeth and a long dark blue tongue. It then came faster.
"Run!" I yelled.
We then started running, only to see four more of those monsters.
"Get to roof!" Kinji yelled.
We ran out the door in sweat.
"Find something to block the door!" Kinji yelled.
I look everywhere, but there was nothing to use.
"Dammit, so this it," Kinji said.
The balled monsters brokebroke down the door. It can't be the end, not like this. Then I heard a voice.
"Are you afraid?"
"No," I said out loud.
"Do you wish to know the truth?"
"Yes," I said.
"Then show us your bravery, and release it."
That's right, I have this journey. I can't let it end now. Then my Breaker started glowing blue. I have to take it off. Then, a simple word popped into my mind.
"Per... so... NA!" I yelled, as I ripped off my Breaker.
An explosion of aura came out of me. Next thing I knew, a large being was right in front of me. This being was covered Greek golden armor and a big red cape. It held a long spear in its arm and a circular golden shield in the other. And then the voice came back to me.
"This is the power of the Persona."
"I am Achilles, and I shall lead us to victory."
"Go!" I yelled.
Achilles then charged at the monsters. He impaled three of them with his spear. After that, he summoned a ball of glowing light and fired it at the remaining to monsters.
"Incredible," Kinji said.
Achilles then disappeared. I picked up my Breaker and put it back on. I don't know what the hell just happened, but I know it be a problem.
