I'm back from my break, in case you were wondering.

I am a young writer.
I love listening to international music and watching international movies and shows.

Drowning

FREE WRITING

I'm drowning in my tears and thoughts,
Having no clue where to start.
It isn't odd that I'm acting this way
Because, as long as they don't see me, I'm safe.
They always tell me to be myself, personally.
But they don't know the real me... the me that's drowning.
That's because I have masks;
Beautiful, happy masks to hide the sadness.
No one knows but it's okay.
Hiding is my speciality.
Sometimes... I wish someone could pull me out...

During our final two years of high school, we spent less time together. Haru and Youta were busy preparing for their Air Defense Academy Entrance Exam. And I was too busy studying for the STIC exam; I wanted to study abroad, preferably in the States. It had always been a dream of my sisters and I. Why? 
Because there was no hope for us in Japan. Once we finished high school, we would go to an...

Welp...

I guess I owe an explanation? 
I've been gone (on and off on WtW) for the past month... maybe one and a half. 
Did I write while I was away? Nope. 
It's quite a long story, I must admit. But I'll make it short.

For starters, I have been pretty busy with school. I wish I am homeschooled, but I'm not. So I have to deal with travelling to school, staying after for clubs/sports, going home, doing homework, and, as...

I make my way through the mourners, shaking the hands of those I recognize. A hand claps my shoulder and I stop, turning around to see Sr. Henderosa. 
"Buenos días, Sr.," I whisper, my gaze flickering around the room. I can't stand to look at his bloodshot eyes. "I apologize for your loss." 
I force myself to meet his gaze, and almost recoil at his sunken face. I had feared this man for years as he glared down at me...

"Slow down, Kei-chan!" Haru yelled from behind me.
I threw my head back and laughed, propelling myself even farther. "We're going to be late if we wait for you!" I yelled from over my shoulder.
For the past year, the three of us (Watanabe Haru, Nakamura Youta, and I) have been penned  as 'the Taiko yaki Trio.' Every day, right before school, we hurried through the busy streets of Hiroshima to find our favorite taiko yaki...

"Shuru!
My entire body shudders at the sound of the referee's voice. I start running toward my opponent, sand kicking up at my feet. I have always been known for my speed. Why I wrestle? I have no choice. 
I bend forward as soon as I near her, ready to go easy on her for her size and gender. Of course, the daughter of Mahavir Phogat will be allowed to wrestle a bunch of boys. I feel bad...

"Don't do it. It isn't worth it." 

"You don't even understand how I feel."

"They have no idea what they're saying. They're wrong." 

"What they've said... it hurts in an incomprehensible way."

"I understand. But they're speaking from fear." 

"Fear of what? Fear of an entire culture of innocents?" 

"They're afraid because they don't understand. Please, don't hurt yourself for them."

"What does it matter?"

Awesome Mixtape pt. 4

So... I've been feeling super down lately. Why? It's a long story. 
Anywho, I've also noticed that I haven't been able to write very well or even have the motivation to write. 
Therefore, I've come up with this completely positive mixtape as a sequel for my first one. These songs have been played over and over in my earbuds to get me to be a little more positive. Plus, I've been wanting to do a sequel for my super depressing...

PROMPT: Love in Words

I have never before been so in love with something beyond me. 
I have never before been so angry with something that cannot be controlled.
I have never before been so drawn to something this incredible. 

I am sorry for what I've said. I am extremely apologetic for what I have done to stay away from you. I am sorry for denying my love to you. I am extremely apologetic for attempting to forget everything about you. 
On those dark...

The first time I rode a bicycle, I was seven. We lived on our farm in Kyoto at the time. My father had finally scrounged up enough money from savings to buy off one of our neighbor's old bikes. It was rusty and the back rubber wheel was torn off, but my sisters and I worked hard to restore it. 
We painted it bright blue and white, just like the sky. We had wanted to feel...
