Drama / Horror

Chapter 1

Kaneki widened his eyes in horror, trembling lightly. "N-needle!" he exclaimed, and Touka rolled her eyes. "suck it up you big baby," she said, "they just need a little blood. That needle's nothing to the one they're gonna stick in your back if you don't let them test you."

Lieutenant glared at her, and he set a soothing hand on Kaneki's back. "Just close your eyes really tightly. Then you'll never see it coming so you'll never feel the needle," he said with a smile, and Kaneki didn't hesitate to do just as the younger instructed.

All the students in BC had been required to have blood drawn in order to test the blood and make sure nobody had anything that they could possibly transfer. Emergency elite status students had been ordered immediately down to South Korea to contain the damage and help rescue situations. It hadn't been easy convincing the U.S. to allow BC students over to South Korea after the huge earthquake and tsunami, but because BC base was centered near the biggest fault in all history, students were trained in case of earthquake and tsunami disaster.

Now that the elites had done most of the clearing and rescuing in the most populated areas, the students with higher-level clearing were being sent in to investigate the rest of South Korea, including the more dangerous areas that had high tsunami warning.

Kaneki was one of those students.

"O-ow, D'mitri, it s-still hurts," Kaneki whined, and Lieutenant pouted his lips. "Aww," he mocked, "does the baby want motrin?" Kaneki blushed furiously. "F-fine. Big jerk." Kaneki walked ahead and Lieutenant sighed. "Kaneki, wait up!"

"Wait up, Xixi!" "'Hey! You kids get back here! You're not allowed over there!""Paper! Paper! Special edition! Get the reading goods on the earthquake and tsunami here!"It was the first day back to school since the earthquake and tsunami took a chunk of South Korea into the sea, and Minzy's heart was pounding in her chest. She'd hoped that listening to the sounds of the lively, bustling neighborhood would helop calm her nerves and remind her she was okay, but she couldn't let go of the feelings haunting her. All those people died...gone, just like that..."Minzy!" Minzy heard her brother calling her from the bottom of the stairs, and he yelled something to her in Korean about her being late before he gave up and walked away. Minzy finally walked out the front door in her school uniform, looking cautiously over her shoulder. When she found the coast was clear, she started walking towards the school. Nobody was in actually the house to follow her, because her brother was in tsunami, and he hadn't made it back to her like he promised.
Amber playfully shoulder-shoved Minzy, making a little dance out of it. "What's with you?" Amber asked, and Minzy shrugged. "Tired I guess," she answered, but Amber didn't buy it. Just as the latter was about to ask what was really troubling her younger friend, one of their male friends plopped in the seat across from them. "Winter bombed his sociology final," he said, and Amber gave him a look. "North, you selfish asshole, nobody cares about your third-world problems.""Not my problem. It's Winter's."Where's your loser twin? Why don't you go bother him?"North pouted and picked up his lunch. "Maybe I will," he blurted mockingly, but as he was about to get up, a white-haired teen sulked into the seat next to him. "I bombed my socio final..." he groaned, and North sat back down. "We know," Amber stated flatly, "it was front page news on the Daily North Gazette." Winter socked North in the arm and the two started to roughhouse until North had Winter in a noogie-lock, and two more male teens and a female sat at the table. "What's the news on the Daily North Gazette?" the female asked, and North glared at her. "Nothing Luna," Minzy said, "so quit fooling around, all of you. We'll get in trouble if the teachers catch you two fighting."The group sat in silence for a long time, exchanging worried and surprised glances.
"Hey, Minzy!" Amber ran after the brunette trying to desperately to get away from the school. Minzy turned. "Amber, I really appreciate everything, but I'm fine. Really. I'm just tired. I can't believe it's only been a week and already they claim it's safe enough to go back to school, you know?" she said, and Amber smiled. "Yeah, I do."Luna ran up to the pair giggling like a crazy man. "Girls! I got it! We'll be models for the magazine One and Only! Look at all these super cute clothes; the models keep them for free!" she exclaimed, and Minzy smiled softly. "Wouldn't want to be dumb like a model," she retorted. Luna hugged the magazine she was holding and gasped dramatically. "How dare you!" she cried out, before the three burst into giggles and started walking home together. "What do you think little Tori is up to right now?" Luna asked, and Amber scoffed. "Probably at the border with her uncle packing sandbags. Goody two-shoes gets to skip school AND make us look bad," she snorted, and Minzy shrugged. "I don't know, maybe she's dancing with pink, fluffy unicorns on rainbows," she said, and Luna and Amber laughed. But all three girls' laughter ceased when Tori ran up in a broder patrol vest, panting her tongue out. "Girls! Remember how Minzy's brother was lost in that tsunami, but they never actually found him when Bloody Cages' elites searched?" Minzy grew solemn. "How could we forget..? Those liars didn't even search the entire area..." she said, and Tori grinned. "Well I got great news. Bloody Cages just got the official government warrant release to do a full search-and-rescue over the entire affected area. They're doing a full scan and only the best of the best soldiers are going to be there."Luna put her hands on her hips. "What does this have to do with us?" she asked, and Tori's grin widened. "We can find Minzy's brother."
