AKISE AND SAKIKO'S HOUSE
When AKISE slams the door to her bedroom she locks it and starts piling up furniture against the door. Reliving her most hated nightmare AKISE proceeds to hide under her blankets, laying in a fetal position while holding her arm. Despite the dark covers she can clearly see the bite mark from when her father ever so lovingly bestowed this treacherous gift on her. ‘It’s been so long since that day . . . and yet this memory still haunts me,’ AKISE thinks to herself. She then remembers leaving SAKIKO in the living room, gasping she gets up out of bed and starts removing all the furniture she placed there. Running out of her bedroom still only in her bra and panties she was met with an empty living room. AKISE pokes her head in SAKIKO’S room but she wasn't anywhere to be seen, disappointment clouds AKISE and she goes back to her room. Going to her closet to put on clothes she opens the door and on the inside sits a full length mirror. AKISE gazes at her body and notices small love bites from her neck down to her stomach. She counts the small bruises up to 10, AKISE smiles to herself and feels a bubble of love come up. ‘I’m Sakiko's’, AKISE thinks to herself, she then giggles to herself as she put on sweatpants and a black ‘Beatles’ T-shirt. AKISE wishes that the moment they had earlier never ended, she begins day-dreaming of other devious and sexy plots with herself and SAKIKO. AKISE brushes her hair unconsciously, brushing the curly hair to the point it frizzes out. Dramatically exhaling AKISE puts her hair in a messy, poof-like bun. Her hair wasn’t going to get better so AKISE leaves her room and sits on the couch, her own clothes still strewn on the floor. AKISE turns on the TV and switches the channel to Animal Planet, AKISE’S favorite channel to watch. Not a minute into watching TV a knock comes to the door, AKISE annoyingly sighs at the unwanted visitor. Getting up to answer the door, AKISE meets a tall man with a very nice and well-kept build. His eyes were crystal blue and his hair is brown but is short and well-kept. The moment the man sees AKISE he gives her a big flashy smile to knock any girls panties off. AKISE couldn’t help but smile back at the mysterious stranger. But she still wants to know why he is here, nobody comes down to this part of the neighborhood, especially not a fancy looking guy like him.
AKISE: May I help you sir?
MAN: Ah yes, I just wanted to know if Sakiko is home.
Despite the friendly voice, AKISE tenses up. ‘Why does he want SAKIKO? And how does he know she lives here? I don’t know him’.
AKISE (skeptical) : No, she stepped out a while ago, but I can take a message.
The man's face lit up.
MAN: Okay! Thank you so much for your help, my name is Roy Hughes by the way and what's your name?
AKISE: Akise Oshino.
ROY: Ah what a pretty name, but could you tell her that I'm back in town and when she has time we can get together to talk about our engagement over coffee.
The moment AKISE heard those words her dead heart becomes a crushed powdered mess, quickly recovering AKISE clears her throat.
AKISE: Is that all?
ROY: Yes ma'am, thank you again uh, what was your name again?
AKISE (whispers) : Akise.
ROY: Ah Akise, such a pretty name, well then you have a lovely afternoon, hope to see you again.
And with that ROY turns around and leaves, AKISE shuts the door as she processes the shock that just passed through her. Tears start to stream down her face, she sits down on the couch again and numbingly watches the TV. She thinks about that ROY guy some more, thinking about his blue eyes, AKISE shivers at the thought of his eyes. There was something about them that makes AKISE second guess his friendliness, they were icy and cold. And whenever he smiled it seems forced, now that she thinks about it. ‘He’s definitely hiding something’ AKISE thinks to herself. But thinking about ROY made her think about SAKIKO and the unknown engagement, and without another thought AKISE lays her forehead on her curled up knees. More tears flow down her face as AKISE sits in her head, mulling over her thoughts.ns126.96.36.199da2
