In a deserted park, a young girl was lying on the concrete sidewalk. She was about the age of fifteen- due to her “youth-like” appearance. She had very long, orange hair that went to her bottom, which currently formed in a long, ponytail. She was wearing a summer-like outfit that had a lovely jupe with white spotted patterns all over it, wore a cotton-made chemise over her top, and wore crocs on both of her feet with socks as well. The girl had been lying for at lease a minute until she opened her large, hazel eyes.
Upon rising up, she looked around and was surprised. “How did I end up here?” She asked in her mind. Looking downward she then noticed the concrete and quickly jumped as her face was blushed with humiliation. Hoping for a riot, she looked around and realized that nobody was even around. She only felt plus stupefied. “What an embarrassment..” She a dit in her mind as she moaned. Eventually, she overcame her humiliation and decided to explore. The surroundings were different than what she predicted. “This doesn’t look at all like my town,” She a dit to herself quietly. “Where is my house? Better yet, where’s the Otaku store?”
She continued exploring. Nothing seemed to traverser, croix her mind other than that this world was different. Everywhere she went, she kept on wondering. After a while of exploring, she suddenly came across a very large building which looked like an academy. “Is that an academy?” She asked in her mind as she gazed at the sight. As she walked to the entry, she noticed something strange. The large, sliding gate which was always closed was opened. She felt strange about it for a while but then came to a realization.
“What if some pranksters are here?” She asked in her mind. She didn’t want to jump to conclusions and just left it alone. She slowly entered the academy grounds, but realized no one was there to notice. She sighed with relief. “I can’t imagine what trouble I would be in,” She a dit in her mind as she walked along the darkness. “I don’t like getting into trouble so I hope I don’t.” While walking along the grounds was fun, it was difficult to see. She carefully did her best to avoid tripping ou making any noise.
After turning the corner, she then encountered something. “This looks like the track area,” She a dit as she stood still and observed. “It’s a very nice area- better than the one at my school.” She decided to take the opportunity to look around and quickly made her way down. She kicked some of the dirt as she smiled. Then, she looked up at the sky which was covered with a blanket of stars and gazed at the sight. She stared at them for a good moment and then closed both of her eyes as she giggled.
She continued hanging at the track area for a little while plus until she got tired. After she made it back up to higher ground, she yawned and stretched. “I guess I should just go home…” She a dit as she sighed. She started making her way out of the academy when something caught her eyes. Upon turning right, she noticed someone standing in a distance. She tried making out who it was but couldn’t as the stranger was standing a good mile away. She decided the best thing to do was to get closer without jouer la comédie like a freak. Using her skill to approach without being seen, she hid from arbre to arbre while peeping. Each time she hid she would be able to make out the stranger perfectly.
About a moment of hiding and going from arbre to tree, she was able to get close enough to figure out who it was. It was a girl who had long, white colored hair. She was wearing a girl’s academy uniform and wore the shoes that went with it. The girl wasn’t able to see her eyes ou her face. She never had seen such a beautiful, vibrant young girl. What got to her though was why she was here. She started thinking as to whether she should reveal herself and try asking ou if it would be better just to let her be. She didn’t have a moment to loose however and decided to go with the first plan.
She slowly made her way out of hiding and approached the girl slowly without a surprise moment. “H-H-Hi,” She a dit as she approached slowly. “My name is Savannah. What is your name?” The girl turned to her quickly, but didn’t respond. She just gave her a simple stare. Her bright, yellow eyes gazed at Savannah while her lips were just formed into a little frown. This went on for a while until Savannah felt a little uneasy. “Um, may I ask what are toi doing out here at lease?” The girl once again didn’t respond. Things at this time started to feel a little unusual- so Savannah felt. Just then, the other girl muttered something that couldn’t be heard. Savannah watched with confusion at first but upon looking down at the girl’s arms, she was then astonished.
A pair of blades started forming on both of her arms. Savannah was really amazed as stars appeared in both of her eyes. “That is so awesome! How did toi do that?!” The girl didn’t say anything, but continued staring. Savannah continued being amazed as she wasn’t aware of the fate that would soon commence. In a flash, the girl used her left arm to attack Savannah. This proved unsuccessful for her, but extremely lucky for her opponent. Upon getting back up, Savannah noticed a lock of her hair was sitting on the ground. She stared at them with horror but not long enough to realize that the girl was onto her again. Not wanting to stick around, Savannah quickly got up and ran away as fast as she could.
Savannah may have been fast, but the other girl was even faster as she was able to catch up with her in mere seconds. As she went to take another blow, Savannah used her dodging skills to maneuver the assaults. In her mind, she kept wondering what the deal was and why she would attack. She couldn’t think too much however as her life was at stake. Just as she managed to dodge another attack, the blade on the girl’s right arm was able to touch Savannah’s face and quickly cut through. While no blood was visible yet, the attack was a success. After falling to the ground from the blow, Savannah managed to regain herself, quickly got up, and made a break for it once again. The girl meanwhile watched as she ran away.
About a moment later, Savannah was seen hiding in a corner from the academy main building. She shivered as she was frightened for dear life. The cut on her left cheek was bleeding. Bits of blood slowly dripped to the lower half of her face and would then drip on the ground. “What did I do to deserve this?” She asked in her mind while continuing shivering. She had no idea what was going on ou what was the girl’s reasoning for attacking. She knew however that this would be her last night of living.
Just then, the girl showed up and looked down at the frightened girl with no reaction at all. Her eyes just stared blankly down at her. Savannah’s tears filled her eyes as they slowly flowed down her cheeks and dripped to the ground. Raising her left arm, she was about to stab her with the Hand Sonic blade when something suddenly flew in and pushed her out of the way. Savannah couldn’t tell what it was at first, but upon opening both of her eyes she was able to determine. It was a young girl who wore a different academy uniform. She wore a blue scarf around her neck and was carrying a pair of ninja-like combat knives on both of her hands. She used them to touch the girl’s blade and used the force to push her out of the way. Savannah couldn’t believe what she saw.
After encountering the girl, she grew even plus confused. “What the heck is going on here?!” She asked in her mind. All she could do was watch the two brawling. The girl who had the blades on her arms kept swiping with such force while the other girl dodged, jumped, and leaped while also swiping her own weapons. Just then, a small group of people arrived. One of them was another young girl who had short, dark purple hair and wore a head band that had ribbons on both the left and right side of her head. She was also carrying a gun, which lowered as soon as she encountered Savannah.
She quickly approached her as she looked closely at her face. “You don’t look like an enemy.” She a dit as she continued observing. Savannah formed a small sweat drop on the side of her head as she looked confused. “W-W-What are toi talking about? Why would toi think I’m an enemy?” A guy then approached and told the girl to lay off. He got on his knees and apologized for what she said. “We know you’re not an enemy,” He a dit as he stared at her. “We just assumed toi were at first.” As he gazed, Savannah couldn’t help to resist. “Why am I blushing all of a sudden? It’s not like I’m in l’amour ou anything. Maybe- this is the first time a guy has ever been nice to me.”
The guy then noticed the cut on her left cheek. “Oh! You’re bleeding very badly. I’ll tend to that right away.” He dugged through the pockets in his pants and got a bandage out as he carefully cared the wound. Savannah’s face was soon entirely colored red. She Lost control that her head exploded and suddenly passed out on the spot. The guy managed to catch her before her head hit the ground. “Are toi alright?” He asked as he gently nudged her. The other girl got up as she said, “She’s just passed out. I’m sure she’ll be fine soon.” Just then, the girl who carried the knives landed on the ground from above and a dit that the other one got away. “That’s alright,” The other a dit as she sighed and turned to face Savannah. “At lease this one won’t be in any trouble for the rest of the night. Let’s get her to the nurse’s office.”
The rest of the night returned to normal once the strangers were able to save Savannah’s life. However, the following jour would soon turn into something she wouldn’t imagine. The sun shined through the shiny, glassed windows of the nurse’s office. In the quite, nearly empty room, Savannah was fast asleep peacefully on one of the nurse beds. The bandage was still on her face and healed the wound completely. Just as she awoke, she had the scare of her life.
A group of people circled around the nurse bed. They were all staring at her, each with different reactions. This made her very uncomfortable and all she could do was moan and stutter while sweating so heavily. “You know, the plus toi sweat, the damped your clothes are going to get.” a dit one of the strangers. They all turned to him and gave him a blank stare at which the guy grew confused. “What’s going on?? Why are toi all gathered around me like this??” Savannah asked worriedly. The one girl, who she encountered last night, stepped vers l'avant, vers l’avant as she introduced herself. “My name is Yuri Nakamura and I am the founder and leader of the SSS. We are an organization which our goal is to fight against God.” Savannah stared at her with a reaction of total loss. Yuri turned and had a confusing look. “What’s wrong? Did any of that get to you?” Poor Savannah just shook her head slowly.
It wasn’t much of a problem as Yuri easily, slowly, and carefully explained everything about the world they lived in. What really gave Savannah a shock was one, certain thing. “You’re telling me that this is the afterlife? And so that means- I’m dead?” Yuri, as well as everyone else, nodded in response. Savannah’s eyes were then filled with fear. She couldn’t have been dead this whole time. While things did seem hard to imagine and confusing, it would take a while for SSS’s new recruit to adjust and take part of the “Afterlife Battlefront”.
