truth or dareIt was Aimi's 16th birthday, Mei was sleeping over as her present, since she could not afford a material one. Aimi loved it more than any other gift, just to spend time with her best friend. "Let's play truth or dare." Aimi suggested. Mei was on the ground, sitting cross legged, facing the bed; Aimi was laying on her bed, looking at the ceiling.Mei laughed quietly, "Every time I play that with my sisters, it just turns into 'truth or truth'.""Well?" Aimi looked down at her, "That is fine with me." She looked back up at the ceiling, "Let's just tell each other things we never said before." Mei's face fell. Mei looked down at her hands as she played with her fingers. "I'll go first. Um
" She looked up and tapped her feet on the foot board of her bed. "You were my first real friend."Mei smiled slightly, "Me too
" She said quietly.Aimi
Aimi and MeiMei and Aimi were 16 and they were out at the park sitting on the swings talking. They had become best friends over the years. Aimi got up off the swing. "What's wrong?" Mei asked.Aimi sighed and sat sideways on the swing this time, she looked troubled, "You have told me everything about you
" Mei got nervous. She had recently told Aimi about her abuse at a sleep over, just them. They were playing truth or dare, and Mei felt like it was the right time. Aimi was shocked to hear that, but their friendship never wavered, even when Mei showed Aimi her scars. Whenever Aimi brought it up, she felt that she had made the wrong move, but Aimi always proved her wrong. Aimi was a great friend. Aimi smiled, "Calm down." She could tell when Mei was nervous. "Believe me when I say it does not change anything.""Then why bring it up?" Mei mumb
are you ok?" Mei's 'father' said one night. He stopped her as she tried to go to her room right after dinner. "We have not talked in a while."She did not look at him, "I don't want to talk to you." She mumbled.This came to a complete shock to him, "Why?!" She mumbled something he could not understand, but before he could ask her to repeat herself, she walked around him. "Wait-wait Mei. Did I do something wrong?" He asked as he followed her down the hall. "If I did, please tell me." Her throat got tight as emotions overcame her. She got into her room and locked herself in. She put her hand over her mouth and choked out a quiet sob.'You did nothing wrong daddy.' Mei thought, trying to figure out how to breathe through her closed throat. 'It is me

kazuki and airi late at night' You ask me a lot if I'm sad that I don't talk...' Airi asked Kazuki one night Kazuki slept over Airi's house. Whenever he did sleep over and never really did much sleeping, mostly talking in his bed."Yeah?" He said quietly. It was the middle of the night, he did not want to wake anyone.'But I never asked you that. Are you I sad can't talk?' Kazuki sat up (they were laying down) and looked down at his love questionably. Airi did not sit up. He looked a bit sad."Why would you ask that? You know I think you're perfect. I would never change anything about you." He said with all of his heart.'But wasn't learning sign language so troublesome? Didn't you ever just want to give up?'"No. Never. The only times I ever got frustrated was when I thought I was making this more difficult for you because I couldn't fully understand you all the time. I never wanted to ask you what a word was when you use one that I did not know because I felt like I wa
Aya and KatsuKatsu was watching Yasu one day at work, sitting with his legs dangling out of the cloud. Aya came and sat down next to him. "Hey." Katsu said, stilling watching Yasu. Aya laid down on her side, head in Katsu's lap.She watched her niece for a while, then spoke up, "What is living like?" He looked down at her with wide eyes."Why do you ask me?""
When I asked daddy
I don't think he was telling me the whole truth." She turned on her back and looked up at her slightly nervous brother. "Ever since I was eight I wanted to live. I'm 27 now. I asked God if I could live
live with you and mommy. He said, 'Of course you are allowed Aya, but you are never allowed to return here if you choose that path. You have to be absolutely certain you want to do this, for it is not something you can ever take back.'" She sighed and grabbed Katsu's hand. &
kazuki and katsu...One night when Katsu was watching Yasu, there was a knock on the door. "Yes?" Katsu called quietly. Kazuki opened the nursery door and poked his head in. "Why are you knocking? This is your house." Katsu asked, looking down at his sketch book. He continued drawing as Kazuki wondered into the room. He closed the door and walked slowly over to the crib. The one year old Yasu was sleeping soundly."I just wanted to make sure you were not sleeping." Kazuki mumbled, still looking down at Yasu."If I was sleeping, I would not be watching her very well, would I? Why are you up? It's midnight."Kazuki leaned on the crib, "Something is on my mind.""What's that?""
Our kiss." That caught Katsu off guard. His hand slipped and he drew an unintentional long line down the page."Tsk." Katsu clicked his tongue and flipped his pencil
