Chapter 12:

Great escape

who I am is not who I want to be


I admit that most people, including me, seek attention a lot. In reality, People who crave attention are the most fragile and insecure human beings in the world. Many of our daily life activities are just for attention-seeking. Many of us wear expensive clothes. We buy fancy houses to become the center of attention. Does everyone do it for making themselves happy or, is it just for becoming the center of attention? Attention is like a trophy or a champion ring. Bookmark here

Attention was everything that Akane desired from her parents. She left the house after her dad tried to kill her. For the one last time, she wanted to confirm and see whether if her dad really care for her or does he only loves money? She was beaten up by her dad for the sake of money. The money which Mr. Manzo had to pay as a fine to the organization Cyber Detectives. While leaving the house without the acknowledgment of her parents. She aimed to gain all of her parent's attention by going missing. She was hoping her parents will start searching for her if they are worried.Bookmark here


On the 14th of September 2015, after the incident of the data breach in the organization. Akane came to her grandma's home and told her about everything that happened at her house. She showed her grandma those scars which her dad gave her by smacking her head with the table and from that bottle of wine. Her injuries left scars on her forehead and jawline. Her grandma gave her the attention and care but it wasn't the same attention as Akane wanted. She started living with her Grandma with the hope that someday her parents will come in the search of their only daughter. Bookmark here

She was counting days with the hope that someone will come in search of her. Forty-five days passed but nothing happened. On the 48th day, at 2:00 AM, while randomly scrolling through social media. She saw the name of her dad on a random post. It was written on that post that:Bookmark here

" 17-year-old Daughter of Minister of Finance: Manzo Toru killed her mother and escaped from home."Bookmark here

She was not able to believe what she just saw. She searched it on Google
and found a lot of articles on it. She was trembling with fear. She ran and turned on the TV. She found the news on TV. She saw the dead body of her mother in the news. She felt numb. She felt as if the time has stopped and what remains is she and the underlying danger in front of her. She ran to her grandma and woke her up from her sleep. She showed the news to her grandma. It was unbelievable for both of them. The more that she saw that news, the less she believed it. Rumors all around made her afraid. She was afraid of her dad and felt as if the next dead person is gonna be her.

That night her parents fought. In which Mr.Manzo killed his wife by pushing her from the balcony. His wife wanted a divorce from him and threatened him that she is gonna tell the world that he tried to kill his own daughter. Mr.Manzo was afraid that what if Akane told the world about the reality of his dad so he burned the bridges for Akane after killing his wife. He made a statement in front of the media in which he said:Bookmark here

" My daughter: Akane fought with her mom for not allowing her to spend a night at her boyfriend's home. They were in the middle of an argument. I went to attend a call and when I came back and saw this and couldn't find my daughter there. I searched for her everywhere. " Bookmark here

Mr.Manzo managed to make a few pieces of evidence that could prove that Akane was the one who pushed her mom from the balcony. One of Mr. Manzo's servants helped him in creating those fake evidence. After Imagining the consequences of going against Mr. Manzo that servant decided to stay silent and help him. Mr.Manzo believed that people don't bother to look beyond the headlines or to fact-check. They blindly believe and propagate the information. He had a good reputation in front of the public. No one could suspect him of killing his wife. It was a piece of cake for him to spread this rumor.
