Chapter 1: Yamagata Satoshi
Yamagata Satoshi, he has purple hair combed upwards and purple eyes. He wears a simple black t-shirt and black pants, he's an eighth grader, 5''1 3/4, 102, lbs. Average grades and just a completely average Jr. High School boy until that one day which would change his life forever. Satoshi heads for school. "Hey, Sato!" yelled a voice from across the room.
Sato shouted back, "Hey, Kenji! What's up?
"So how was your summer?" Asked Kenji.
"Oh it was pretty good., I guess. A little boring though. You know sometimes I just wish something completely out of the ordinary would happen to me, you know?"
"Yeah, I do. But face it man, you are seriously cursed with being extra ordinary."
"Yeah tell me about it."
Mr. Yuki clears his throat. "Okay class today we will begin by learning...
Seven hours later after school is over. Kenji says " Hey Sato. Can I come over your place later?
Sato replies "Yeah sure, of course Kenji. But I'm going to get some books at the library first.
"Okay see ya later then."
Sato makes it to the library and is looking for a history book.
"Ah, Here we go, Huh? Whats this back here?"
Sato grabs an old dusty book. He blows off the dust and opens it up.
"Its blank." He says perplexed by the thought that a book could be completely blank.
A huge light blue circular portal opens from the book and sucks Sato in. It spirals at a speed of light and knocks Sato outside unconscious.
Sato wakes up in the middle of greenfield.
"Huh? Where am I?
A giant eagle-looking thing with silver talons and a gold beak and wings swoops down and lunges at Sato.
"Whoa!" Sato yelps as he does a somersault to doge the eagle monster.
"What the heck is going one here?! Am I dreaming or something?"
The eagle comes back and attack Sato again. This time landing a hit, leaving Sato wounded.
"Ahhhhhh" Sato screams in pain. What on earth is that thing?! How do I get out of here without that thing killing me? Wait a minute. I have an idea. Come here little birdy, come here."
Sato starts running and the eagle follows. Sato runs up a tree and the eagle soars up to the sky. Then it glares back down at Sato who is smirking. The eagle lunges to attack Satoshi once more. Sato pulls out a rope and lighter, He lassos the rope around the eagle and lights it on fire, sending the eagle down in bright orange flames.
"Oh yeah! I won. Its my birthday! It's my birthday! Kiss my buttcheaks, you dumb mutated eagle. Sato pauses as he realizes what was going on. He was in an entirely new world. Sato looks up at the silver sun and says "I'm not on Earth anymore"
Sato hears large pounding footsteps in the distance. Suddenly a large blue half-goblin, half-golem creature jumps out of the sky.
"What the hell?!"
The golem runs towards Sato causing a massive earthquake.
"Kill Yamagata Satoshi!" The golem yells fiercely.
"Man not another one of these crazy -looking things. And how on earth does it know my name?
The golem drops down hard to the ground causing another quick but large earthquake.
Sato falls down on his knees from the earthquake. He looks up at the golem creature traumatized unable to utter single world.
A thirteen year old girl front flips of the golem's back, where she was standing on top of and lands in front of Sato. Sato noticed how short she was while she was dusting some dirt off of her pink sundress. Sato stares in awe at her cherry blossom pink eyes. And her pink hair flowing in the wind. She then stands with her arms crossed and tapping her blue tennis shoes with pink laces. Staring sternly at Sato, clearly insulted.
"I'm not sure how it knows your name. But us crazy looking things, prefer to be called Bakemono. Nice to meet you. I'm Sakura."
“I am much better at oral now thanks to you.”
Chapter 2: Sakura
Sato is staring at Sakura in awe. Sakura starts to speak, "So, are you gonna just sit there staring at me creepily or what?"
Sato snaps out of a daze, "Oh, sorry. I spaced out. Sato starts to get up. By the way, my name is Yamagata Satoshi. But my friends just call me Sato. So, you're a monster like those other things?
"Oh geez, I told you already. We're called Bakemono."
"Okay. So then what are Bakemono exactly?"
"You mean, you really don't know."
Sato shakes his head dumfounded.
"Geez you really are uninformed, aren't you Sato?
"You have no idea."
"Well then, in that case I'll explain it to you. You see up until about thirteen years ago, us Bakemono and humans lived together in peace and tranquility. But all that changed when one really despicable Bakemono known as the Warrior Bakemono, Niji, called war on the humans. In the end a human had used an ancient book to seal us away in. It was known as the Forbidden Book. And you and I are standing talking inside of it now. Now like the human race the Bakemono race is very vast and unique. However we are split into two groups. The mindless Bakemono, like the ones you just saw today. And the and the free-willing Bakemono, like me. Plus, we're also divided into different sub-types, kinda like your ethnicities. For example I am strength Bakemono
"Yeah, no kidding." But how come you don't look all crazy-like. I mean you look like an ordinary thirteen year old girl.
"I know. Ever since I was a little girl I was abandoned because my parents called me ugly and thought I was a pathetic excuse for a Bakemono, since I had none of their features. No horns, like my father, or demon wings like mother. I'm a disgrace!" Sakura starts to bawl.
"I fail to see just how that's ugly. Hey, hey. Come on, don't cry. You're not ugly at all.
"You…you really think so?" Sakura starts to wipe away her tears.
"Yeah of course I do. Sure, I bet if you went to my school, you fit right in."
Sakura starts crying again
"What's wrong? Now why are you crying? Sato asks confused.
"You said that I would fit in at your school. But I'm not a human. So you think I look like a human to? I should be ashamed to have this Bakemono blood coursing through veins!?
"Geez, this chick sure is one heck of drama queen." Sato says to himself. "Hey Sakura! Stop crying would ya? Geez, sure you look like a human and all. But you shouldn't be ashamed of who you are. And if you were born a Bakemono. Well, I don't see any reason you can't be a proud Bakemono!"
"Well, now that that's over. See ya, I gotta go find so something to eat and then find a way out of here." Sato starts to walk off.
"Crap." Sato says under his breath. What is it, Sakura?"
"So you're a human right? Not a Bakemono?
"Yeah, what of it?"
"Well then, I have some bad news." Sakura says solemnly.
"Well could you hurry it up. 'Cause I really gotta get home."
"That's just it. You see, you can't go home!"
"What?! Why not?"
"Because when you entered the Forbidden Book, from outside. You became trapped. Now you will have to find your way through the end of the book, facing the most fearsome monsters of Bakemono history. All of them will come to destroy you. In fact even Bakemono who aren't part of this will still want you dead. Since most Bakemono nowadays hate humans ever since the war."
"Me not included. As a lot of other Bakemono hate me just for looking like one."
The ground begins to shake.
Sato looks around and says. "An earthquake."
Sakura nods, "Yep. From the golem Bakemono. "
"What him again?'
"What?! How can you tell?"
"The females work alone, males travel in packs. Don't act surprised. I knew I should've gone all out the first time. I won't make that mistake again!
Sakura runs by so fast the wind she left behind nearly knocks Sato over. The golem's hand starts to turn to a moss green shade of stone and aims its punch at Sakura's face but Sakura jumps up onto the golem's fist and starts running again. Sakura pulls back her fist and yells so loud it knocks all but one tree down. Then she releases her punch and sends the golem soaring into the clouds. Sakura lands flawlessly on her feet. The last tree collapses.
"Whoa, that was incredible!" Sato says shocked.
Sakura replies simply, "Yeah, I know. I am strength Bakemono after all."
A loud high-pitched squeal is heard in the distance.
"What was that just now?" Sato asks.
"I'm not sure. But is sounded like a little girl. Let's go check it out, okay?" Sakura says worried.
Sato reluctantly nods.
“I am much better at oral now thanks to you.”
