A young girl named Lucy sat at the window, taking in her view of the world outside that was outside her cage, the orphanage. It was nice to have some people around, but she hated this place. The adults never seemed to care about her or her needs, and the other children didn't, either.
So what point was there in trying? Lucky for her, she had two good things going for her. She had finally managed to make a friend in the orphanage. A nice girl named Hanako, who decided to become her best friend had randomly appeared in order to save her from the bullies. She even stopped the bullies from picking on her, which made them madder.
All these children didn't have a home anymore, and so they lived with her. They hated themselves for being so unfortunate, and as a result, they took their frustrations out on others, like Lucy. Lucy just happened to be slightly different, and as such was picked on.
"Lucy's world will be filled with tragedy. Her dearest friend will be killed, and her best friend will betray her. As a result, her world will drift farther and farther into darkness. Then she will meet a boy who will change her life forever. But, because of one little lie, she will murder her friend's father and sister.
The cycle of darkness and despair will continue on. Eventually, she will meet an unfitting end. But, is there a way to end it all?"
"That's what this shard contains, Rika." The girl finished, handing a gold shard to a dark-haired girl, who studied it.
To tell the truth, these girls didn't seem that old. They only looked to be around ten or eleven. The girl who held the shard in her hands was a most unusual child. Her blue hair fell in her face as she watched the unfortunate girl pet her puppy, unaware of the tragic fate in store for it.
She could relate with Lucy. Her name was Rika Furude. She'd seen her share of sorrow, gore, and death. She wished she could end all the violence that was in her world, but each time she even tried, it never worked out. It was thanks to the girl next to her that she could keep on living. Her ultimate goal was to find a way to break through the endless hell she went through.
But, she found it to be a foolish goal, because the constant disappointments wore away at her spirits and crushed her hope. However, the last few worlds made her wings thump against the interiors of her cage. She knew she must break free.
The lavender-haired girl with black horns sighed. "Rika, I think we might have more time in this world if we go to it."
Hanyuu was a goddess, with long flowing lavender hair, and lavender eyes. She also had horns like Lucy, only they were black. "Hauu...Satoko, Rena, Mion, Shion, and Satoshi will all be with you. Me too." For a long time, she had been invisible to everyone else, save for Rika. Rika could see her and speak to her.
"Then, what are we waiting for?" Rika insisted, picking up the shard and closing her eyes.
Hanyuu nodded, and then there was a bright flash, and the two were gone.
Lucy frowned as she got out of bed. Another day of bitter humilation awaits me. Why even bother getting up?
She summoned a poker face, and went downstairs, noticing that the kids were already staring at her and made her way over to where her best friend Hanako was waiting for her. "Where's the goon squad?" She asked, referring to a certain idiotic blue-haired boy and his friends.
Hanako shrugged. "Who knows? Maybe they've found someone else to pick on." The brunette remarked hopefully.
Lucy smiled falsely. "I hope so..."
Then, as she continued to eat, she saw Tomo approach her.
"Morning, freak." He smirked slightly.
"Hey, thanks for the cereal you poured in my bag last night. It goes well with the backpack. It's all part of a balanced breakfast." Lucy said sarcastically.
"Don't get uppity with us." He warned.
She noticed the dark-haired boy look her way, and he approached again.
"Do you have anything better to do than to pick on innocent girls who can't fight back?" Train growled softly.
Tomo ran again, humiliated twice.
"Are you all right?" He asked.
Lucy nodded mutely.
"My name is Train. What's yours?"
"I'm Lucy." She said.
The blond girl approached as well. "I'm Eve."
"How long are you staying?" Lucy asked.
"Not very long. We'll be leaving soon." Train replied, folding his arms behind his head.
Lucy felt her heart jump down her throat. The first person to stand up for her was leaving?
Later on, Lucy looked around for Hanako, but couldn't find her. That girl had a bad habit of disappearing when she was most needed. She went outside to where her puppy was, and was surprised to see a group of children talking to the orphanage director.
New guests? Oh, great. Just what I need. More kids to pick on me.
