Tails of Spirits

By YukiEne

Adventure / Fantasy

Chapter 1: The differences

Yuki P.O.V.

This world was divided between lots of things.

The humans from the spirits.

The bad and the good.

The wrong and the right.

The rich and the poor.

Also...the normal and the ones who are not.


" hm?"

I woke up from my bed and got up and changed. I could hear banging and clanging coming from outside this quiet room of mine.

"Mother and Father must be arguing again..."

I quietly peeked outside my room. I was right, they were arguing like crazy again. Throwing things around-

"wait."

I froze when I saw what my father was going to pick up,

it was my violin.

I tossed myself outside my room despite the dangers. I leaped and caught my violin just in time.

"whew"

I looked up seeing my father and mother's faces.

Oh dear.

Looks like I'm in real trouble.


Despite my family's fights and arguments. My father and mother are rich, making me as well. They told me it was my choice if I wanted to go to school or not, but I decided to go since of the experience I could earn. This school co-exists with spirits and humans.

" I'm going!" I yelled as I ran out of the door. Today I'm a new student in the middle of the school year. I was hoping that I won't be a misfit there.

I found my school only 20 minutes away from my mansion. I switched my shoes* and went to class.

"hum...my class is A-8 which is about a 15 minutes walk from the front door. I guess I have time to look around."

I walked around the school to look around. I decided to wear the same thing as everyone else. You see, being rich isn't really in my favor. Sure, you can buy just about anything. But I don't like being different than everyone else. Let's just say I have bad memories about it.

The second bell rang meaning that it's a 5-minute warning to get to class. I walked there slowly since I was in a 3-minute range to the classroom.

I waited outside the door until the teacher called my name.

I opened the door and walked in. To tell you the truth I was a little nervous.

" My name is Yuki Yuzuki! Nice to meet everyone."

I said in a monotone voice. Everyone looked at me while I rewrote my name that the teacher spelled wrong. "ユキ ゆ好き" "由紀 ゆずき"**

I put the correct spelling on the side of the name.

" oh~~~~~" the class broke into a roar of claps.

I put the chalk down and went to the assigned seat. It was the last seat by the window. I really like seats by the window since it gives me the fresh air from outside!

We started class soon after I took out all my items. I looked at the problems on the sheet. "this isn't so bad" it was fairly easy the way I saw it. I took reading classes since I was very little so I understood it perfectly.

During lunch, I refused a lot of people that wanted to eat with me. I like to eat at ease with myself so I went to the roof.

Since I really hated interacting with people. After I got bullied 2 years ago, I became unusually quiet. Never talking to anyone.

After going there, I found something unexpected. I found a hurt sparrow that had its wings crushed by a rock. It looked really bad and I touched it a bit.

It was broken...

I quickly went over to it and did surgery on it. You see at a very young age I had the talent of surgery since I was very determined of saving people. So I went back to the classroom and took my surgical first aid kit.

It looked really happy after I did surgery on it. Good thing it went well and succeeded.

The bell rang and I went back to class.

I passed a group of people. I counted quickly as I passed. There were 9 of them. I heard them talking and laughing.

Ah...how I wish I could be like that.

Yet...when I passed them. I felt something different about them than other people.

"Could they be...no that's impossible."

I stopped thinking about it and went back to the classroom, took my seat and pulled out the seating chart from my desk.

I looked around and looked at the seating chart that listed everyone's names. For some reason, I have very good memory. The names highlighted in green are normal people, the names highlighted in purple are spirits and...the names highlighted in white are...the special ones.

I looked at my name.

For it had a different highlight than everyone else.

It was the color of nothing.

The color of white.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.

Roy Jenner: I was pleased to join the action where this B-17 was limping back across the English Channel defying all odds.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...
