The town was filled with trash floating in the air – paper flyers mostly displaying announcements of the dictator to ‘clean up’ the world’s population. It was kind of windy and chilly when they walked and split up to search for Vesia.
Yasome went with Makov, while the rest followed Maggie.
“There seems to be a glimmering light on the farther end of the town…” Yasome noticed. “Let’s go check it out.”
“Right!” Makov said with enthusiasm, and at the same time, fear.
As soon as they got there, unexpected lasers fired at them. Some cut buildings in half and cracked the ground up.
Makov then noticed a poor girl lying on the ground.
The clock was nearing 12 midnight. Everyone in the Carsagia household seems to be preparing for someone’s big day.
“Quickly! Prepare Johann’s emergency medicine!”
“Are his clothes ready?”
“Affirmative. They’re the larger set we bought yesterday.”
“The cake! Over here!”
“Where are the candles? The matches?”
As the second hand quickly approached the number twelve, the whole family waited, as Johann, a 12-year-old boy, sits in the middle of their dinner table, ready to blow his birthday cake.

Sulat dito, sulat doon. Ganyan ginagawa ko since 2006, nung malapit na ako magtapos ng high school.
Bata pa lang noon ang kapatid ko na si Hana. Napansin ko rin nang dumaan ang mga panahon na nagsusulat ako ng mga kwento na nahihilig din siya sa pagbabasa.
"Ate Yuki!" sabi niya. "Ang gaganda naman ng mga love stories mo!"
"Salamat!" tugon ko.
Love stories lang?

“So…you call yourself Makov the Pursuer?” Yasome asked their new team member. “Who or what are you exactly pursuing?”
“…it’s a long story.” Makov mumbled while the group was in their small boat headed for the next island near the capital.
“It’s fine, we’d like to hear it.” Yasome encouraged Makov to share his experience.

After some time, Yasome’s group has gotten enough rest and headed for the journey ahead. They were only a few mountains and valleys away from the capital. To get to the main island, they had to ride a small boat near the shore, but what surprised them was an ambush, lead by another Weizan.

Anita just received her first part-time job after graduation from high school – to be the babysitter of a little boy whose parents have just passed away and only left under a grandfather who’s busy at work.
“The boy’s name is Stanley. Right now, he’s at school, but all you have to do for now is to pick him up using the bicycle his father used to ride on,” said the grandfather.
“Sure!” Anita eagerly said. “I bet he’s a really good kid.”
“He is...a very special little boy.”
Anita wondered what that meant, but eventually didn’t give any meaning to it.
