Till Death Do Us Part

By Keely Tori-Racoon Glynn

Romance / Action

Starting Fresh

My name is Jaycee Itsubaya. I am in High School and I live in Japan with my family. This includes my Mother, Father and my only brother. Me and my brother are pretty close I guess. My life is pretty simple at the moment. It's all starting to smooth over again. Me and my family just moved to Tokyo from Hiroshima so we had travelled a long way. We had been living in Tokyo for about 4 months now. I didn't really have any friends at the school. That was probably due to the fact that I had only been there two days before the holidays started. We had a week off. Tomorrow was my first day back. "Jaycee, Dinner is ready!" I heard my mother calling for me. "Coming!" I called back. I looked back to my computer screen. I closed all the internet pages I had been looking at for inspiration on my laptop. I had chosen to take art at my new school. It was my final year. My last school didn't have that option. At my old school I had taken Psychology. At my new school we had to take at least 2 subjects. So I had carried on with Psychology and chosen Art as well. I had drawn some of my friends from Hiroshima on my sketch pad. I was looking at a photograph I had taken which I had uploaded from my camera onto the laptop. I closed my laptop and stepped off my bed. I picked it up and set it onto my desk which was just to the right of my bed. I walked across my room and opened my door to reveal the stairs. I walked down them as the aroma of food began to fill my sinuses.

I walked over to the table where the rest of my family was already seated. I pulled out a chair and sat straight down. Then I began to eat dinner. Our family never talked whilst eating dinner. If we did it was usually for something bad like a concern or something important that my father would bring up. After we had finished eating we all put our plates in the dishwasher and sat around in front of the television to watch the news. It was the same every night. To me it was becoming tedious. "So are you looking forward to starting your first real term as a 16 year old?" My mother asked. I smiled and nodded at her. "Don't go talking to any men" I heard my father warn from the other side of the couch. Me and my mother just sighed. "Well, I'd better get to bed anyway" I informed. It was coming up to 10:45pm. I said good night to my family and walked lazily up the stairs to bed. I opened the door to my bedroom and closed it gently behind me. I walked over to my bed and collapsed backwards onto it. I then jumped up and closed my curtains. I went over to my drawers and got changed into my pyjamas and lifted up my covers to get into my bed. I curled up into a ball and closed my eyes waiting for the next day to come.

I got woken up by the sound of my alarm. I groaned. I turned over lazily and sluggishly hit the 'snooze' button. I opened my eyes briefly to see what time it was. It was 8:15am I had 30 minutes to get ready. I had to be out of the house for 8:45am to walk to school. This was to be in class for 9am. I rushed to my drawers and pulled out some black jeans and a Spider-man shirt. I threw them on. When I was dressed I walked to the mirror. I coloured my eyelids in with black eyeliner. I also put black eyeliner on the bottom of my eye. I put black mascara on which made my eyelashes become curled and long. This brought out my bright blue eyes. After I had finished applying my makeup I straightened my hair. I tied it up to show off my piercings. I had 3 ear lobe piercings on my left ear. On my right ear I had a scaffold piercing, I also had 3 ear lobe piercings in my left ear and the first hole was stretched to 12mm. I had the bottom part of my lip pierced on the left side. I kept a stud in rather than a ring. I also had the right side of my nose pierced. I kept a black ring in my nose. I grabbed m,y bag from the side of my bed. I walked down the stairs and made my sandwiches before stuffing them into my bag. I filled my water bottle up and walked out of the door before locking it.

I checked my phone. It was 8:35am. I decided to walk the long way t school. My mother had shown me one way to walk which was the shorter way and my father had shown me the longer way. The route was only longer due to traffic lights that you had to wait to cross at. It took 25 minutes to walk to school this way. It was only 10 minutes longer than the other way. Also, I liked walking this way because it gave me time to think. I got to the first set of traffic lights. I had a feeling that Psychology had somehow shaped the way I looked at people. I would often watch people and see them acting differently to others. I would always see the business men and women on their phones talking about appointments. I would also see the mother trying to stop her baby crying. Although, sometimes I would see adults crying to themselves. This reminded me that the worst was still to come.

I now stood at the second set of traffic lights waiting to walk. I was lost in thought. I saw people walking across beside me. I began to walk across when someone shouted and pulled me back. I heard a car beeping as it sped past. I looked beside me. Nobody had walked at all. I blinked of shock on how oblivious I had been. "You'd better be careful" a boy smiled. I just stared at him. "That could have been a nasty hit" He informed. I smiled. "Thank you" I appreciated. People started walking in front of us. "See, now you can cross" He laughed. I watched as he disappeared into the crowd. I tried to follow him as fast as I could but people began to shroud me. I felt claustrophobic. I pushed my way through the crowd as fast as I could and got to the front. When I had reached the front I ran away from the crowd as fast as I could to the next set of traffic lights so I didn't get shrouded again.

I panted as I leaned on my knees with my hands and tried to catch my breath. "Man, you run fast" I jumped at the voice and stood up straight. I turned to see the boy who had grabbed me out of the road. He was stood straight but also out of breath and trying to catch it. Had he been chasing me? It began to rain. "If you would of shouted me I would of stopped" I laughed. "Well, I would of shouted you if I knew your name" He laughed finally catching his breath at relatively the same time as me. "Oh right…I'm Jaycee" I smiled. "Matt" The boy replied extending his hand. I took it and shook it once firmly. "See you in school" He winked and ran off. I didn't understand why he ran off though. His red hair flattened in the rain. I saw him pulling his orange goggles from around his neck up to his eyes to shield them from the rain. The green walking man had appeared and the crowd began to walk. Then suddenly I got hit on the head by something fairly hard. I looked behind me and a man with an umbrella walked straight past me. I thought it could have been him but it felt a lot harder than an umbrella made of material. I got confused and then I saw something on the floor in the corner of my eye. I tried to lean in to get a closer look at it. People were shouting at me to get moving like everyone else. I couldn't now that I had seen something though. As the crowd began to clear I saw a book. It was the wrong way round. When the crowd had completely cleared I quickly picked it up and ran across the road watching for cars. When I got across the road I looked at it. It looked like a journal. Maybe someone in the crowd had dropped it? I turned it over and read the title "Deathnote?" I said confused.

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?

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...
