Glimmering brown eyes peeked around the thick, gnarled tree once again, eyeing the open front doors of the school carefully. It was late in the afternoon, and the sun was hanging low in the sky overhead, and most of the students were getting ready to leave the grounds, if they hadn’t left already. A short, slim girl with long brown hair and bright hazel eyes clung to the far side of a thick tree from the entrance, her fingers digging hard into the bark as her eyes remained glued to the open doors. She moved to take a step, then slid back, hearing something. Not even three seconds later, two young boys walked out next to each other, laughing with each other, but what to others might have been a casual laugh to the girl appeared to be menacing plots being laid out before her eyes. She wondered what awful things they might be planning. But no matter, for as long as it didn’t involve her, which she hoped desperately that it didn’t, it wouldn’t matter to her.
Now, usually the young Fumie Ichihara, fearful as she is of any and all other people, would have left the school grounds the instant she was free to do so. However, upon leaving, she had decided on a stroke of luck… or perhaps misfortune, in this case… to check her bag again, and realized she’d forgotten to pick up some books from the library that she needed to read before next week’s classes. Thus, she had come back… and now remained glued to the tree, watching and waiting for other students to stop coming and going from its near-abandoned halls. Then she would make her move.
She waited a minute, and nobody else came out, or went in. She took a step forward, around the far side of the tree from the school, and looked around. There was nobody coming. Now was the time to act. Another step, and another…
…and something shifted behind her. She dove around the tree the long way, making it half-way around, and crawled the rest of the way to her hiding spot just as a girl came jogging around the corner of the gate and into view, in a gym outfit and running straight into the school. Fumie sighed, her fingers digging back into the tree as she waited to once again be sure the coast was clear. Hopefully this wouldn’t take too much longer; she couldn’t even begin to think about the horrors that would await her in this town at night, alone… or even worse, not alone.
