Gently, gently
I calm my breath
and to the rhythm of a clock,
I abandon my body;
the tasks I'm burdened with
and awful things,
now and only now
will I forget them...


✿Lyric Credits

How long have you been suffering?
Keeping your feelings deep inside of you,
Your desires locked in a cage.
You must be tired,
Enduring the struggles of the past.
Let us rest your weary wings,
the end of your journey is almost here.
There is no need to worry any longer.
The path is unclear and the future is hazy.
But let us keep walking forward
into the aimless days that wait before us.

Ring!!! Rin-I turned off my alarm clock about a second after it set off. It's not that I have keen hearing or fast reflexes, it's just that I was awake 10 minutes before it even turned off. There was no "big" reason why I was still in bed. I was wide awake and hungry, but I still didn't want to get out of bed. Maybe a part of me didn't want me to be awake today? No, it's more like I was too lazy to officially "wake up" .

After I "officially" got out of bed, I went to the kitchen to cook an omelet. It's not that I enjoy making breakfast for myself and my family, it's just that I was the only one home to feed herself. Dad would've been at work by now, eating a free bagel and coffee with his co-workers while mom would still be at work, eating the rest of the free samples for breakfast. I used to get scared of being alone at home, especially in the mornings where the house is still dark and filled with a eerie aura. But I gotten used to it after a few weeks since I was basically alone most of the time anyway.

The omelet was finished in a matter of minutes. After I finished my breakfast, I washed the dishes, dressed up and walked to the bathroom to brush my teeth. As a child, no, even up 'till today I'm a little scared of mirrors. In fact, my own reflection sorta freaks me out a little. Once I entered the bathroom, I smiled and waved "hello" to myself. I don't know how this could be comforting, but seeing my reflection accepting my presence with a harmless smile seems a bit more comfortable. I took my toothbrush, squirted toothpaste onto it and began brushing my teeth.

Then I noticed something was wrong.

There was a small black spot in the middle of the mirror. Although it could've been a piece of dirt, something in me told me it wasn't. I cleaned the bathroom mirror yesterday, so there shouldn't be any spots on the mirror.

I should've ran away.

Immediately the hole got bigger and two arms grabbed hold of my shoulders. My eyes widened and I froze as my brain tried it's best to comprehend what in the world just happened. It quickly pulled me in and I embraced for impact.

It didn't happen. Instead, I was pulled inside the mirror.

I gasped, and the toothbrush in my mouth fell out. I couldn't see properly so I couldn't make out the person in front of me. There were swirls of colors around me, mixing, blending, and splitting. Random objects would fly right in my direction and miss me by a millimeter. I could see glimpses of events in the sides and corners of my eyes. People talking, objects fighting, water cracking, lights shattering. It was too much for me to take, and I slowly withdrew to warmth of darkness.

I awoke surrounded by strangers. They were asking me something, but I couldn't hear them clearly. There voices seemed to slur together into one big voice that echoes. I couldn't think clearly, so there was only one thing I could do. I would go in auto mode; a mode I'd describe me when I'm in a new place. I mostly go in this mode when I enter a new school, classroom. Just accept everything as it is. Any info before has been erased, please input new info.

"Wait, please, can everyone be quite for a second? Can somebody explain where am I?" I asked as calmly as possible.

You're in Limbus. This is the world where spirits with lingering connections to the world of the living live." A middle aged man in work attire said.

Oh god, somebody just knock me out so I could wake up from this messed up dream.

(Sorry for it being so long. xD)

( It's okay. It's pretty good too! I'm amazed xD Mine is sort of long too, sorry OTL. )

Everyday always started out normally, so normal that maybe living in that world would get boring. As the days passed by the girl dressed in a cloak and goggle felt as if she was dying of boredom and each day it would get even worst. Sometimes she would try to stir up some excitement to sustain her boredom, but she always got quickly scolded. She saw no point in trying, no point on going on. But... She couldn't die yet. She thought many times, asking herself the same questions over and over, "Why am I still lingering here? Even in death, I still can't rest.... Is my spirit really that strong? Or am I being stubborn?" The answer was simple really and it took her awhile to realize.

How many seconds, how many minutes, how many hours, how many days, how many weeks, how many months, how many years... How many times...?

She felt as if time stood still and she couldn't move forward. All she wanted was to move on.

It started out as a normal day... but it really didn't end in such she thought it would.

"How predictable... I'll probably be eating dumb oatmeal, then wandering around this place aimlessly for hours and hours, eat dinner, get in trouble, sleep then the cycle repeats."

She heard annoying voices around the corner, echoing beyond the distance. She looked up to the horizons and prayed,

"Oh, lord, please let this be an excitement." She said silently.

She took tiny steps and sneaked her head to look out the corner. She couldn't see much, only a crowd. She walked towards it and saw a blurry figure. No matter how much she squinted she couldn't make out who it was.

"No way is that a newcomer..." She thought to herself.

She heard the figure ask something, but her voice sounded faint to her. She then heard the old bag answer her question.

"OI." She finally said something aloud to Hotaru. "Who the heck are you?" She raised an eyebrow.

(It's alright. xD I like detail, and thank you! I thought it'd be a little boring since it's filled with unnecessary details. xD)

(Woot, I'm actually coloring my character's text. xD)

Among the crowd someone caught her eye. A pimple in a flawless face, Hotaru described the girl with pink hair end eyes. Stole words right out of my mouth. "Hotaru...Shimizu. I somehow got pulled inside through my bathroom mirror and ended right here." Hotaru explained.

(aha, good for you xD I have a habit to colour my character's text... ...◊ω◊ I like colourful things~)

"Likely story." The girl said, she sounded as if she didn't believe Hotaru. Truly thinking though, the girl knew things like this always happen and nothing in this world is impossible.
"My name is Ina. My last name isn't important... because I forgot it long ago." Ina closed her eyes and nodded slowly.
"Hmm... I'm gonna test something." Ina poked Hotaru hard in the face to see if she could feel her touch.

(I don't do it normally since it's so much work in my opinion. xD)

"Ah!" Hotaru said. It was a natural thing to do if she was poked but she could barely feel it. Of course, her skin curved in and stretched, but there was barely any pressure or pain or that came with it. She touched the spot where she poked in shock for a second. "I didn't feel that..." Hotaru said to herself.

Ina scratched her head. "Huuuuuhhh?" Ina stared at Hotaru in silence for a few minutes. Biingg. A light bulb popped up in her mind. "Ooh. I think I see now? A human, huh? I'm still not as sure why you're here but I think I got the grasp of it. Are you here to help?" Ina titled her head. She never did really pay attention to the other spirits said to her.

(it is a lot of work xD )

I'm not sure... What do you mean as in help? Like... fulfill your lingering connection?" Hotaru asked.

"I guess so! And since you're here, and I'm bored, let's start with me first!" Ina nodded furiously. "C'mon, let's get going~!"

"Eh?! I don't even know how I got in here. How will I be able to go back?" Hotaru asked. Maybe if I go back, I might wake up from this dream. Like in Alice in Wonderland of something.

"I'm not sure. I haven't left this place for 8 years..." Ina said. "I thought you would know... cause... well... you came in here."

Stole the words right out of my mouth, again. Hotaru shook her head. "It wasn't my choice to be here. I was pulled in under my will."

"If you want to get out, there's a vortex that sometimes opens near the gate at the end of the river nearby! I heard that some spirits escaped by using that vortex!" Amaya, who was in the middle of the crowd, randomly said.

"...Oh really? Why hasn't anyone told me this stuff~!?" Ina yelled out angrily.

"Maybe because you never listen...?" Another voice spoke out from the crowd, but this time it was a male's voice.

"Ooooh~ Burned!" Amaya laughed and she put a thumbs up to whoever said that.

Oh wow. Harsh aren't we? "It's alright, Ina-san. At least we know what to do." Hotaru comforted Ina.

"Alright, Alright, thanks..." Ina looked over to the crowd. She then jumped a particular blond boy and pinned him down. "MOMO!! You won't get away with dissing me in front of a new person." Her eyes were filled with rage.

"Oh no. I'm getting raped!?" Momo said almost as if he really was.

"Ughh, gross." Ina immediately got up and looked at him disgust.

Momo smiled brightly, got up, and then walked over to Hotaru. "Nice to meet you~ My name is Momotarō." Momo said.
