Hello! Welcome to my first story!
Before I start, let me explain what co-signing generally is. Two or more people co-sign on something like a car or a house, and both people are responsible for the payments. If on person flakes out on the payments, the other has to pay in full the amount that's due. Co-signing can make things cheaper if done by responsible people. However, if that is not the case, you could end up in severe debt.
Now that that's over with, on with the show!
"Thank you for coming to see me, Hinamori-san." Kazoumi said folding his hands on his desk.
Tsumugu looked nervously around the office he was in. "W-what's this about, s-sir?"
"Tell me, Hinamori-san, about your co-signing partners."
"What? That's it, sir? W-well, we've been together since college and would do anything for each other. Why? D-did something happen to one of them?" Tsumugu became increasingly worried about what might have happened to his best friends.
"No, no Hinamori-san. Your friends are quite fine. Except... well let's just say that they're total flakes." By this point, Kazoumi had a smirk firmly planted on his face.
Tsumugu's eyes widened and his jaw dropped in shock. "W-what do you mean? Of course their not flakes! We all pay the right bills at the end of each month!"
"I'm sorry, but it seems that they haven't. And they left all the debt to you. Tell me, did you ever see any of the merchandise you signed on?"
Tsumugu was stricken by what he was taking in. "No sir. I didn't. I just wanted to help them out."
"Well I'm just going to get to the point. You are over $500,000 in debt."
"WHAT?! B-but I-I don't have that kind of m-money! What am I supposed to do?" Tsumugu was on the verge of tears.
"The CEO of Tsukiyomi Resources has offered an alternative to paying the amount."
"What is it? I'll do anything!"
"I understand you have a daughter."
Amu sat on a bench in her small backyard garden and gazed at the night-time sky. A shooting star shot across the sky in a beautiful arc. "Please let me be able to get out of here," she whispered to no one in particular. "Away from this boring life of seclusion. Nothing happens to me and I... I just wish that I could be able to get out there in the world and actually live." She sighed and walked back inside, oblivious to the dark figure watching her.
Quite short, but you got what you need to know. If you have any questions then review. If you don't have any questions then review. Either way, please review and remember, this is my first fic so don't hate, appreciate!
