SuiRei Story Collab Ch 6On the next morning I awoke with a terrible headache.
I looked at the clock, and I realized it was after twelve o'clock. Reimu let me sleep.
I took a few seconds to remember the events from last night. I looked around, to try and find Reimu. Finally I saw her cleaning the threshold of the shrine with a broom. She turned to me and smiled. "good morning, Suika-Chan!"
"Go-Good morning," I replied, hoping she'd forget what happened last night.
"I made you breakfast, it's waiting for you on the table," she said. "I have a lot of work today. You can help me if you want. If not, you can go meet people or something, or do nothing, but don't interrupt me."
I nodded and crawled to the sink to wash my face. The cold water woke me up and made function again.. I went to the table and sat down to eat. Reimu let me have a fish, but it was cold and disgusting. I ate it slowly and reluctantly, and my thoughts began to wander to other subjects.
Why did I cry on her last night? This thought bothered me.
SuiRei Story Collab Ch 4The dinner was very quiet.
Reimu made each of us a bowl of rice, and we sat down to eat. Reimu ate slowly and drank her tea. She didn't want me to drink too much tea, so I got only one cup.

"umm.. I don't know.." I answered. "I saw you sitting with your friend at the entrance and decided to turn to you.."
These were the only words that were spoken during the meal. It seemed Reimu would rather not talk and instead she sipped her tea slowly, looking out through the big open door. I felt a little embarrassed, but I didn't say anything. The darkness fell slowly.
Finally, it was time for bed.
Reimu sat on the edge of the futon. I lay there, pressed on one side of the futon, covered in a blanket. I looked at her. It seemed the fact that we are going to sleep in the same bed bothers her.
"Nothing's going to happen tonight! Understand, Suika?" Said Reimu firmly.
I nodded. "
A Bloody, Stupid Miracle The day we’d cured the human condition was the day I put a bullet through my head and didn’t die. It was also the day I realized how scared I actually was of death, and after hours of muscle ache from holding that gauze against my open skull, after the wound closed and everything went back to normal, I had myself a good old-fashioned brainstorm. How ironic.
But when summer came, everything had fallen to shit. The air scorched my skin and parched my tongue every time I took a breath. The sun glared down on a rapidly-collapsing world, full of the undying bastard children of cruelty and misfortune. What was one to do when their cells regenerated faster than they decomposed?
My feet hit the pavement, now littered with jagged bits of glass to snap at my toes, thoroughly baked by the blazing ball of bitter disdain high overhead. Today was worse than yesterday. Though I’d often wondered the purpose of it anymore, I
