"Where am I? Where is Nina?" Then he remembered.Bookmark here

"Right, Nina is dead" Tears fell out of his eyes. He got up from bed looked at his clothes. They were new. He didn't remember what happened after his sister was killed. He ran down the wooden stairs and saw a red-haired fat woman cooking in the kitchen. He stopped running, she hadn't noticed him. Kibo thought: So I am at this women's house what should I do. Kibo looked at the kitchen and searched for something to use, he suddenly saw a big knife, quietly he proceeded towards the knife. She was still cooking. Kibo took the knife and held it with two of his hands. He was terrified, his hands were trembling. He screamed "Hey, you where am I? Where is my sister? Why am I here?" The woman laughed and turned around and said: "You were crying unconsciously on the floor in the middle of the street, so I took you showered you, and gave you new clothes. I know it was your sister who died." Kibo was surprised and didn't know what to say. "Put the knife down kid!" She said and began walking towards him, as a result, Kibo lifted the knife higher. She stood very close to him, lifted her hands up, and screamed while looking at the ceiling "Stab me!" Kibo was frightened, he couldn't move, he fell to the floor while he was shivering and began crying, the woman had begun squatting towards Kibo, she reached out her hand to Kibo, he screamed at her to not get close to him, but she didn't listen, Kibo took the knife and bravely cut her finger, blood was falling out of her eye, her look hadn't changed she was still smiling, although she bled she hugged him and said with comforting voice :Bookmark here
