[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Akemi swung lightly back and forth as she softly sang, remember each word. She liked the song, it had been specially written for her. Lorraine, her lovely American manager, thought that having her start singing emotional songs would give her a good start in the music business. Apparently people here were all about [i "Emotion"] and Anime was becoming mainstream, so along with the love songs would be attempts at trying to sing anime openings. She grew up an Anime, hell Anime in Japan was like Saturday cartoons for Americans.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 A cool breeze brushed past her as she continued to just stare up at the stars, a nice silence descending. [#8B0000 [b "Papa...can I really do this?"]] She muttered to no one, suddenly feeling lonely. The decision to move was a sudden one for Akemi and she was wondering if it was the right choice. Yes, she wanted to be a famous singer but was coming to America right? Couldn't she have just become a j-pop singer liker her parents wanted? No. She didn't think so...for some reason she felt like this is where she belonged at the moment, in this dingy and dirty town. She didn't know why, but that's what her gut was telling her.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Akemi was enjoying the peaceful silence around her, at least until the sound of two bumbling fools nearby cut through it. She found herself getting irritated, getting up from the swing to see two guys stumbling around and eventually falling on the ground. At first she was simply going to take the two dudes as a sign to go home for the night, but she immediately recognized one as the guy who she'd seen at the bar, the one she was certain was Orion. Her stomach knotted as thoughts whirled through her mind. [i "Should I go say something? He looks like he's drunk, she I help? What if he's forgotten about me or is angry that I left?"] So many questions without answers. Taking a deep breath, she decided to brace her fear.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 The dark-haired girl approached the two boys, looking down as they tangled themselves on the ground. It smelled of alcohol and weed, something she didn't think Orion would get mixed up in. Maybe he was just having a fun night out, beside weed wasn't that bad. She was certainly not one for drinking or drugs...something like that could ruin her non-existent career. Tilting her head to the side in a curious manner, she spoke. [#8B0000 [b "You guys look like your having fun, though you seem to be in quite the pickle."]] She stated, thinking it was funny how they didn't seem to care who saw them acting like idiots.]]]

[center [size14 [Kavivanar What do you do when your life is pathetic? It's nothing like you want it to be, it's pitiful and in your opinion, not worth living. You hate your life and you hate yourself most of all. You think "I wish I could die. I wish I could be reborn." What if I told you that you could get exactly what you want, to be born into a new life? However...there is a catch.]]]
[center [size14 [Kavivanar In your next life you must never commit any of the following sins.]]]
[center [size14 [Shadows+Into+Light [b Lust] - [b Envy] - [b Anger] - [b Laziness] - [b Pride] - [b Greed] - [b Gluttony]]]]
[center [size14 [Kavivanar Before you can be reborn you must kill yourself, however before you a contract will appear somewhere in which you must sign in blood. If you violate the terms and conditions of the contract then you will be punished, you will begin it lose your mind. You will see things that other's can't, they will torment you until you can no longer take it and commit suicide, thus ending your perfect and new life.]]]

[center [size14 [Kavivanar However seven people have found a way to thwart punishment by accomplishing one of the Seven Heavenly Virtue's.]]]
[center [size14 [Shadows+Into+Light [b Humility] - [b Kindness] - [b Chastity] - [b Patience] - [b Liberality] - [b Abstinence] - [b Diligence]]]]

[center [size14 [Kavivanar This is a story of seven individuals who must complete one of the heavenly virtues and what they have to go through. The stress of knowing if they don't complete what is needed, knowing that if they fail then their lives are ruined.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Akemi was sure that this dude was about to hit her and she closed her eyes and braced herself, however the blow she had been expecting never came. Instead a guy interrupted and grabbed Mr. Pigs wrist, diverting attention away from her. Based on the exchange of insults and threats, the two seemed to know each other and were obviously not friends. It was interesting to watch, back in Japan everyone respected one another, crime was rare and the streets were always clean. Here in America everyone was offensive, rude, dirty and had no fear in expressing how they felt - she loved it.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Here everyone spoke their minds and gave no fucks, it was refreshing and until now she didn't realize how much she had actually missed it. The argument between the two was soon over and Mr. Pig lumbered off towards his group of friends, they seemed to tease him now about backing down. Looking back to the boy who had helped her out, she spoke with a small smile on her face. [#8B0000 [b "Thanks for the help, good to know there's at least one decent person around here."]] Akemi glanced down at the broken glass that was on the floor and then to the bartender who was very annoyed. She felt sorry for him, what would it be like to deal with such shenanigans and decrepit people everyday? She could only imagine.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Being shorter than the guy who had come to her aid, Akemi looked up at him with her golden eyes, taking in the features which seemed familiar to her. Her eyes narrowed slightly, why did she feel like she had met him before? As the question rolled around in her head an idea slowly started to sink it. The shadow black hair, slim features, she remembered them so clearly. It couldn't be...could it? There's absolutely no way that she could run into him that easily...right?]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 She stared at him much longer than she had intended to and the sound of her phone alarm going off scared her, causing her to jump. Fumbling around in her pockets, she grabbed the device and quickly turned the shrill sound off, it was time to leave for her apartment interview. She was torn, she wanted to stay here and confirm what she thought to be right, but she also couldn't miss the only chance she had to get a good place to stay. Groaning internally, she grabbed the bag she had left by the bar, clutching a strap in one hand. Just before she walked out the door an idea occurred to her, there was always one thing...nicknames that they had for each other as teenager that only the two of them knew. If it was really him then he would know it was her - [#8B0000 [b "Have a good time, Ri-Ri!"]] She called out loudly, directing it towards him with a large smile, then dashed out the door in a hurry.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Luckily she had gotten the address to the place before arriving so getting there was a piece of cake. Akemi got the apartment easily and once the key was placed in her hand she began to unpack her luggage. The place was small but clean, a little on the expensive side though. It was a newer addition to the town and had heard that many people didn't like it. A small sigh slipped past her lips, the Asian flopped back on her only chair, staring up at the ceiling. Her mind wandered to the boy she had met, the one she had thought might be Orion. Without really much though Akemi grabbed her purse and left her apartment, her feet guiding her as she walked. Soon enough she ended up at an old and empty park. It brought back memories, ones of her and her best friend just sitting and talking for hours.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 She sat down on one of the seats, eyes drifting up towards the night sky. It was quiet, everyone settling down for the night. As she simply sat and thought she began to softly sing one of the songs that her manager had prepared for her.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 [#8B0000 [b "I'm actually back..."]] Akemi said, the Japanese accent that used to be so prominent in her younger years almost non-existent. She stepped out of the brightly colored cab, the heels she wore clicking on the ground as she settled a foot on the ground. She slipped the sunglasses from her face, gazing around at the run-down town that had been her home for six months. From behind her, the cabbie rolled down his window with a frown on his face, [b "Hey girl, I got places to be. Pay up."] She rolled her amber eyes, digging in her purse to pull out her pocketbook and pulling out a few bills. [#8B0000 [b "Keep the change, asshole."]] The rude cabbie simply snorted, rolled up his window and drove away from the curb. This left Akemi alone with just her luggage. She gazed around, thinking about what she should do first. [i "Papa said that my apartment interview isn't until 5 which is....two hours from now. Maybe a drink would help pass the time."] She decided that a beer sounded great.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 The closest bar would be Rickies Tavern, a home owned business that she remembered her father and his co-workers would celebrate. As she made her way down the street old memories surfaced, some not-so-good while others made her smile. In all honesty, this place offered nothing for her, however the fact that a very important person to her still lived here was enough to make her come back. [i "I wonder if he even remembers me....hell will he even recognize me?"] When she was in high-school Akemi used to have very long hair and wore very little make-up, her looks were never that great to begin with, in her opinion at least. Though after moving back to Japan she made some personal changed, cut her hair, found a new style that fit her. While her father disapproved of the punkish look many others adored her for it, her manager told her that it would help to make her popular among the American populace.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Akemi arrived at the tavern, walking and taking off the sunglasses she wore. A few of the drunkards turned and gazed at her with their filthy eyes, others wondered who such a beauty was to walk into such a dusty place. Plopping down on one of the weathered chairs, she gave an honest smile to the bartender. [#8B0000 [b "Coors?"]] She asked, lifting a brow. The bartender nodded, grabbing a glass bottle from underneath the counter, popping the cap and setting it in front of her on a coaster. Akemi took a long drink, sighing with content. A few years ago she had never dreamed that she would be where she was now. The poor Japanese transfer who struggled so hard to get by was now an emerging musician - she was simply a shell of the girl she used to be. There was only one person she would thank for her turning out the way she was, and that would be Orion.]]]

[center [EB+Garamond [size15 Swirling the beer around in the bottle, she wondered how she was ever going to find him. Did he live in the same house? How was he doing? Was he still that bright boy who had saved her from the depths of despair? There were so many questions and no answers. She wanted to just leave and run to that old house where they would play video games and study, though she had no idea what to even say if she had to face him. It had been what...six years since she had seen him, let alone speak to him? When she had moved back to Japan she had lost her phone and every contact along with it, she had tried to find a way to get in touch but she couldn't find anything.]]]

center [EB+Garamond [size15 As she was lost in her thoughts a burly, sweaty man strolled up to her with a cocky grin on his face. From the other side of the bar, a group of equally disgusting men roared and hollered encouragement. [b "Hey girlie, you new 'round these parts?"] He words slurred together, he reeked of alcohol. He was obviously drunk and thought he could do anything. [#8B0000 [b "Go away, I'm not interested."]] She said calmly, looking down at her almost empty beer. The drunkards face scrunched up in anger at having been rejected, believing no rules applied to him, he roughly grabbed her by the arm and jerked her off the chair. She was startled as being grabbed in such a way, so much so that she dropped the glass bottle on the floor. [#8B0000 [b "Hey pig! Let me go and buy me a new beer!"]] She exclaimed, annoyed. Calling the guy a pig only made him even angrier, she was astonished when he lifted a hand up in the air as if he intended to strike her.]]]
