Almost the whole damn month without writing a thing. No shocker there.
Is it me or did it have a stupid pattern? It started off with that trap. Aya and I... What the tape said, it followed me home with those nightmares, didn't it? That's where those came from. Curse or whatever! Killing people... blood... guilt. Then just like that this place takes Ken and I and turns us BOTH into-! ...It wasn't even freaky, it was CRUEL. The kinds of things it made me do...
...and it all boils down to the same nasty pattern.
Well, too bad, City. I survived another month of your freaking curses and mind games. I'm still trying to cope here, but I'm WHOLE. And I need to get stronger.
It's like I told Fuu back in Cephiro. Ken... Aya... If I want the ones I love to be alright I have to be tougher for them. I can't let them keep SAVING ME from these things without helping them too. And in this place?? TOUGH just isn't enough! You need to get damn superhuman.
...I need to get back to the land of the living sometime soon, too.

I don't think I have the words.
Let me add another yay about October being through to the choir, can I? You know what they say happens after you hit rock bottom? Not sure if it works in this place, but BOY I hope it does.
For everyone who knew her... Hikaru's gone. I just checked the Hall. Better get the hard part done in one go, right? All I can say is I'm glad. That last month makes it easier, thinking she's out of here, back to her brothers, back HOME. The one thing I'm grateful for is that it wasn't so hard on her, this once.
When do the good things start happening, huh?
[There's a blurry glimpse of Umi's tired expression as the camera sinks into a dark space -- she's distracted enough to not notice she activated the video feature when she intended to turn the device off before returning it to her bag.
The Water Knight breathes a heavy sigh as if letting go, burying her face in her hands and lingering in that position for a while. Then, combing back her fringe, she leans back on the park bench where she's sitting. She closes her eyes and simply stays there, weirdly peaceful face looking up to the sky.]
[ ooc : Not a good October for this girl. x.x Someone call the cheer up squad. Feel free to notice Umi hasn't been around since the Dante's Inferno curse ended: she's been doing her best to deal with all she did while she was a demon. Tough cookie as she is, it's working.
If anyone wants to come across her in the park feel free to action! ]
