Miko Academy

By SLDeane

Thriller / Action

Welcome to Miko Academy!

Sara knew it was bad news the minute the police showed up on her doorstep when her parents only left three hours earlier for a business dinner in Tokyo. What it was, she had no idea but she knew it was bad. It had to be. When they told her that her parents had died in a car accident, she didn't believe them. She refused to. It was impossible. Her father drove so carefully it was comical. Her mother would never argue when he was driving because she knew the possibilities of getting into a car accident. It was impossible. It had to be a mistake! Right?

For the next week, Sara was stuck packing up her stuff and moving it into her uncle's house. He had no objections to her coming over but his wife did. She hated her mother, and, since Sara looked just like her, she hated her too. Sara had dark brown hair with brown eyes that had gold specks. She was thirteen at the time so she was just starting to grow her womanly parts and her aunt hated that she was prettier than she was already.

Touga, her uncle, welcomed her with open arms while Kimi, his wife, gave her a scowl and turned her nose away in disgust. Sara knew that the next five years was going to be horrible but she knew she was fine as long as she stayed away from Kimi. Which, she found out very quickly, was impossible. It seemed that the woman went out of her way to find Sara and let her know just how much she hated her with nasty words, and looks, and the birthday presents she received from her were just plain mean. She prayed everyday that she could escape from Kimi's wrath for just a little while. A year or two maybe. Who knew that when she turned fifteen that she would be going to Miko Academy? A school for young women that have special abilities.

Kimi ran across the brochure when she was rummaging through Sara's mail one day and gave it to Touga saying that she wanted to go but was afraid to ask. The very next day they were in front of Miko Academy and taking a tour of the place. Sara ignored the history and the sights with a scowl and listened to her music from her iPod. Even though Sara didn't want to go, her uncle insisted so she agreed, albeit reluctantly.

"Just call us when you don't want to go anymore and we'll get you out. Oh, and please make sure to visit on the major holidays," Touga said, his black hair falling into his golden eyes. Kimi gave her a fake smile and sneered when her husband wasn't looking. Sara, in turn, flipped her off just before her uncle turned around to face them again. It took everything Sara had not to show her amusement as her aunt sputtered in outrage.

"Yes, Touga-Jii, I will," Sara said with a sigh and hugged him one last time. She looked at Kimi and bowed respectively, and Kimi smiled at her to show that she appreciated it.

She waved goodbye until she couldn't see them anymore and the Headmistress lead her to her dorm.

"Welcome to Miko Academy, Kioshi Sara-chan," she said with a smile as her eye color changed from brown to blue. Instantly, Sara knew that the academy wasn't normal and that she let her uncle convince her to stay in a place that could kill her.

What did she get herself into this time?

Laraine Smith: This should be a movie! You are talented! It is that good! Keep it up! It is visual! It grabbed me! Don't give up!

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

Aloehas: When I first started this book, I could not put it down. The author gets you attached to these characters and takes you on an emotional rollercoaster throughout the story, and it's just amazing. I'm looking forward to what else she can do.

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Jean Tryon: As a beta, I found this story outstanding!! Plot, grammar, phraseology, etc Rachel gives us it all. She takes the story into the future from where due South ends. She is an exacting and thoughtful author.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
