Chapter 1

Welcome to The Game of Life

I come up with a punch thinking there is someone standing above me. There isn't, instead there's this floating sentence followed by another. Must still be sleeping then.

Please Answer the following questions

Are you:
Male or Female

… I pick female

You picked female. Are you sure? You will be unable to change later.
No or Yes

I hit the Yes.

Alright. Please continue to answer.

It is sunny outside, the day is nice. What do you do?

A keyboard appears in front of me and I type in my answer


There are two dogs fighting. What do you do?

The keyboard is still there for me to type with.

"I try to separate them"

do you have experience in this?

"Yes, it's how I have a scare in my hand. Someone didn't listen to feeding instructions and fed the recently rescued dog in with others. He started a fight, and I ran in to help separate them. I tried to be quick since the person doing the feeding also had the kid he was babysitting with them. I was able to get one dog to stop and a friend that was over got kept the other one from leaping back in.

Can you cook?
Yes or No

I hit the yes, then when a box showed up I typed in "simple things."

Two of your friends are fighting. They ask for you to decide who is right.
How do you decide?

I type in, "I have no friends and my family are in another city."

Can you Swim
Yes or No

I click the yes.

You have 50 points and you can use them any way you choose.
Assign points to the following

Strength (the ability to Lift Stuff)r
Dexterity (the ability to Dodge)
Agility (the ability to Run Fast)
Constitution (the Ability to Not Die When Poked)
Intelligence (to know the tomato is a fruit)
Wisdom (to not put tomato in fruit salad)
Charisma (how people like you)

… Alright then, So Strength, dexterity, and Agility will get 6. Constitution will get 15. Intelligence and wisdom will get 7. Charisma can have the last 3 points


You're done with this

Have a nice starting day in this Game of Life

and everything around me fades out.

I wake up again and the world is fuzzy. I flail, my hand trying to find my glasses on my bedside dresser. It hit what feels like bars. Giant bars to be precise. Now I might not be the most observant of people but I don't remember this when I went to sleep.

What is going on?

Time has gone by and now I know why I woke up where I did. Though I still have no clue on the how.

I was in a crib. Let's just say that over the resulting time I have been traumatized for life and leave it at that shall we? Good.

Funnily when I admitted it to myself that I was in this situation I got a message, well it was more of a pop-up. It read thus:


With the ceasing of your self-delusion you no longer have a -3 on your intelligence

Words Floating in the Air.

I may have gone insane.

Chapter 2

Well words have started making sense. I think whoever put me here got bored of me not doing anything (not that I could but that doesn't matter). My continued thinking that has nothing to do with the +1 Int popping up. Non what so ever.

-1 Int

Hey, It's blonde fuzz. I wonder what it is doing. Usually the blonde fuzz only comes when the sun is down... Yes, I have been made to identify people by color, what of it? It's not like I can See them.


Oh, there are other blobs following it. Why are the new people picking me up? I cry at blonde, because is she really going to let some new blob just pick me up and go?

"Shshshshshshs" the one that holds me says; like I would just quiet down. I have been here as much as I remember after starting this weird thing and I don't like moving. the other blob takes me and starts rocking me back and forth. I start getting quieter to whimpering because my throat is starting to hurt.

What? You start crying and wailing at the top of your voice and see how long you keep it up.

"She doesn't usually make so much noise," blonde fuzz says and I start getting louder again because I am miffed at her letting people take me away. "It's alright", the one holding me says, "I was actually surprised by how quiet she was when we walked in." Yeah, that was before I was being kidnapped.
"Well, these are Kiku's health records, where we found her, and what we know about her allergies," Blonde is talking again. I wonder why they keep the health records and the allergies separate, "gurgle"
… right, still can't talk.

"She has allergies?" the one that used to hold me asked. "Hm. Oh, it's just mostly hay fever and walnuts."
"Walnuts?", "Yup, Peanuts don't matter at all. Though be careful about introducing her to food, we don't know if she has one and we just haven't encountered it."
"Via eavesdropping you have found out Status, Allergy: Walnuts"
Huh, guess hay fever doesn't count.

+1 INT

looking around I realized that I lost track of where we were. Currently, passing through a gate with a large and strange zigzag symbol on it. Actually, the symbol was on a lot of things: the gate, the walls, the backs of passing people...
And by the gate there was a carriage, connected with a horse and everything. I had only seen one in passing, and thinking about it now where are the cars? And why are we getting in? I thought that it was a bad idea for children to be in these things...maybe that was wagons.
"Before you leave, can I say goodbye to her?" Blonde Fuzz asks like she isn't letting me be taken away. "Sure"
She comes up and says, "I might not have done much for you, but you were a gift to the Kusa Orphanage while you were here. May you live well; goodbye Tomomi Kiku, she who was found in a patch of chrysanthemums."
I don't think she looked back

You have found the 'Once of Kusa orphanage' perk.

Game, thank you for ruining the moment.
