Kayuki always thought there was something missing in her life, and she was determind to find what, या who, it was. She herself didn't even know what it was, she just had a feeling, and it was eating at her. But there's very little a five-year-old adopted child could do, so she decided to wait until she was older.
When she turned 8 her adoptive parents decided she was old enough to walk to and from the bustop alone, and she did. But something didn't feel right, she felt watched, followed. Soon she didn't like walking alone. She tried to tell her mom while she braided her long, midnight black, hair but she just shrugged it off saying she was just being paranoid.
One day, while Kayuki was walking through the alley to her house, she stopped and looked behind her. Nothing. She continued to walk until she got to the back door of her house, then turned around again. This time, she saw a little boy about her age, partly hidden behind a building, staring at her. He had messy, black hair and red eyes.She quickly went inside and slammed the door shut, scared. "who was he?!" she thought, "has he been following me this whole time?!...what did he want from me?"
