I stare at the form I just filled. All perfect. Now, time to sign it for submission.Bookmark here

"Ara, such a young lady. Did you come here with your parents?"Bookmark here

I look up at the auntie talking to me: she wears a white coat, glasses and is holding a bunch of papers against her chest. Likely a staff from the Cell Donor Foundation.Bookmark here

“Yes. They are in the pharmacy over there.”Bookmark here

“Really? But why would they let you fill the form by yourself then…?”Bookmark here

I look right at her, in the eyes.Bookmark here

“We’ve had a discussion. They told me that this is my decision, and that I had to be the one doing it all.”Bookmark here

“Oh… Alright then.”Bookmark here

She readjusts her glasses and returns to her occupation.Bookmark here

Hmm, in any case, it was a blatant lie~☆Bookmark here

Tee~hee~ ( ◞・౪・)Bookmark here

Not like she will know anyway. Plus, this is no big deal.Bookmark here

I just did what I could to hide the fact that I am weird.Bookmark here

Eh? What part of me is weird, you ask?Bookmark here

It can be really weird for someone as young as me, to decide on my own that I sign myself as a cell donor. Yep, it's not my parents' command. After all, what I told to the auntie before was a lie, you know?Bookmark here

Nobody my age would think about it-- since it's similar to thinking about death.Bookmark here

I would rather spout that lie rather than being suspected and labeled as weird. I’m tired of that kind of labeling.Bookmark here

" Wait a second."Bookmark here

"!!" Her voice stopped my movement.Bookmark here

No, please, no more trouble. I am already 13 years old, which means the country already acknowledges me as an adult, right?Bookmark here

Riviera country, my beloved..., nah, just kidding, I feel no love whatsoever towards the condition of my birth. But I feel lucky enough to be born in a country where adulthood is acknowledged as soon as 13 years. In the history books I read so far, it’s said that the acknowledgement of an adult is given after one turns 18, 16, or even 21. It depends.Bookmark here

I turn around to look at the auntie. Got to be polite, right? Eye contact, eye contact~Bookmark here

"Yes, Auntie?"Bookmark here

"Do you have a minute?"Bookmark here

"Uhm... sure," I start to approach the kind-looking Auntie, reluctantly.Bookmark here

It better not be a problem... Bookmark here

"Auntie just wants to give the best of regards to you and your parents. My, what great parents, to have the heart to teach their children the importance of charity and donation. Even so, Auntie would like to pray that nothing befalls you and your kind family before the right time," blabbered Auntie with a cheerful face.Bookmark here

"Ee... thank you, Auntie!"Bookmark here

And with that, I dash off outside.Bookmark here

Bookmark here

Okay, I hated the talk earlier. The talk built upon a lie.Bookmark here

What great parents? Truth be told, I would have preferred to be an orphan. Not like it will make any difference. Oh well, let's end another countdown to my death, shall we?Bookmark here

Haha, just kidding.Bookmark here

But seriously, I wonder, how long will I have to live this unsatisfying life?Bookmark here

Regardless of how unsatisfied I am with my own life, now that I signed the cell donation’s form, I would like to believe that my existence would be of any use to people in this world.Bookmark here

Be it that I can finally live up to my mother’s expectations (which is very hard... based on past experience) and obey every order given to me by my family, or perhaps my cells can save others. After all, I am quite “unique”.Bookmark here

Cells donation.Bookmark here

In this world of magic, even illnesses that render cells dead is present. Besides managing your body function, cells also work as mana transmitter for magic. Which means, cells have their own affinity to magic. To cure those illnesses, cells transplants are needed. People without any affinity of magic will be able to accept the donor who have no affinity as well. No matter the age difference of the donor and receiver, the cells can be transplanted as long as they have the same magic affinity. Only some important cells can be transplanted, and once it succeeds, it can regenerates the other infected cells to be healthy.Bookmark here

Pretty efficient, eh?Bookmark here

Bookmark here

Okay, getting back to my “uniqueness”... it is just that, my magic affinity—my attribute is rare.Bookmark here

But it is not something to be proud of. My magical capacities—my mana— is not that strong.Bookmark here

Besides that, my family comes from a knight’s lineage. We are proud of our sword-wielding ability rather than magic—even though being good at magic is definitely a plus.Bookmark here

So, let’s count!Bookmark here

Weak magic? Yes, I have it!Bookmark here

It’s one point then.Bookmark here

What gender am I? A girl!!Bookmark here

My family values... boys over girls, as the title knight would be related to boys! (Why are boys stronger than girls? *sigh*)Bookmark here

That makes it two!! Two disappointment for myself, already.Bookmark here

So, my uniqueness is nothing to be proud of. Rather, the magic I am having an affinity with is seen as a sinister element of magic. People often discriminate and look down at me due to my attribute. And, that is the only magic I can use, too, due to my low mana...Bookmark here

Basically, I am a disappointment~ ★Bookmark here

If I were to rate my level of being disappointment, it would be... ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆Bookmark here

★ Being a girl in a family that values boys.Bookmark here

★ For having a bad luck in my attribute and mana capacity.Bookmark here

★ Not being attractive enough and for being so unloved by people around me.Bookmark here

★ Having a mind that only thinks of death.Bookmark here

☆ (white means not a disappointment!) Being born as a noble.Bookmark here

As of now, I am worth nothing. But I intend to at least worth something, before I die. And that is why I submitted that cell donor form.Bookmark here

I look up at the sky and notice at how it’s still bright outside.Bookmark here

Since I went through a complicated process on getting the permission to wander off alone, let’s not waste it!Bookmark here

Shall I take an aimless wander around the town until it gets dark?Bookmark here
