I'm no longer on WtW and have withdrew the majority of my pieces. If you want to get in touch, you can message me on Instagram or my email (found in 'Message from Writer').
Thanks for being around, guys! Keep writing and DFTBA.
I have explained the honorific system in the footnotes, in case you're confused. Comment with questions, if you have any (about anything, not just honorifics).
For sake of my bad explanations, I'm just going to re-introduce a bunch of the characters:
Akimura Kei - main character, currently recovering from dehydration
Nakamura Youta - Kei's best friend, served time in the Air Defense, his closest friend, Haru, died during the Pearl Harbor bombing
Saori - the little girl Kei found by the river outside of downtown Hiroshima
Tajima - a man that looks a lot like Haru, very opinionated, kind to Kei but thinks of Youta as an obstacle
Father Shozo - a Japanese priest who spent a lot of time living in France before returning to Hiroshima to run a chapel, has a past with Youta
Nagatomi - a kind woman with her five children here in the chapel with her, very motherly towards everyone
Dr. Yabasako - the resident doctor of the chapel, friendly toward everyone
If you were wondering, this isn't really a chapter. It's more of an extra thing I wanted to write but didn't really move the plot or anything. Hope you guys understand that during WWII, so many lives were lost on all sides of the war, most were undeserving. I know that in this series, I wanted to shed light on how Japan fared during part of the war, but I also want to make it clear that I'm not excusing Japan for any of their actions. What they did was wrong but so did everyone else in this war.
