40 years after the kishin was reborn
on the outskirts of Akioma village
It was a warm day, and _____ and I were in Aki River playing.
I was having a good time, but I couldn't help but wonder, " Do I have to be somewhere else right now?"
But that thought left my mind entirely when Dajaku, the village "bully" came up.
" Hey, stupid! your house is on fire!" He said with a smirk.
" Yeah right, Dajaku," I said with a frown.
" Like you would ever tell the truth ".
He stomped angrily.
" Fine! " He yelled "Don't believe me! But when you go back home, don't come crying to me! ".
He stomped off, with the most rotten look I had ever seen.
I acted confident, but on the inside, I wondered: " Is he telling the truth? ".
It wasn't ten minutes till my friend, Niju, ran up.
" ______! Your house is on fire! " She said with fear in her eyes.
" Come on, you too? You can't be serious? " I said sadly, but was coming to think it was true.
