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?

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

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.

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare. All the elements have rhyme and reason in being placed together.The respective background stories of the characters involved so far also give a sense of flair and thrill.I'...

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.

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!
