Most of the time, she is very sweet, cheerful and friendly. However, on days when she remembers her dead parents, she tends to be more quiet, and sad. She is very loyal to those who earn her trust and if they need her help she is there for them. Though, she has the bad habit that when angry, she would snap at anyone, not considering the consequences or if the other person would actually retaliate. She is very talented with music and loves to practice on her free time or read, since she also likes books. History: Up to half way high school, Mia had grown in a normal home. Great parents, great house, great school. She wasn't entirely popular but many of the kids at school liked her and when in trouble, they would look for her to ask for advice. However, all that changed at the age of 15, when her parents were killed in accident. She didn't became anti-social or anything like that. She still talked with most of her classmates and teachers, she still held the same grades but she did toned down her cheerfulness and spoke a bit quieter. Two years before she finished high school, she got interested in music and started taking guitar and piano lessons. She practice at home, but most of the time she practiced at her school due to her Aunt not liking the 'loud noises'. Her Aunt was the one who took her in after what happened, even though she never liked Mia due to her mother being of Italian heritage. Being a proud Japanese woman, her Aunt wasn't happy with her brother, Mia's father, for marrying a girl who wasn't of Japanese descend. However, she still loved her brother so when he died, she decided to take Mia in, however she had to follow her rules. Though,when it was time for her to decided what she wanted to study at college, she decided for a Major in Music. Lets say it didn't sit well with her Aunt, who wanted her to study medicine or law. She was not going to pay for her to go to college, just so she could study something stupid like music. So, she made Mia decide between law or medicine, if neither, she was not going to pay her studies. However, Mia was not intimidated and decided that she didn't need her Aunt to pay for her studies. She would get a job and pay it herself. But, what she didn't count on was the fact that college was to expensive and her Aunt, not happy with her decision, cast her out of the house. Now, she is working double jobs. On week nights, she works as a waitress at a Japanese inn to pay for her apartment rent and on weekends, she works at a local bookstore. Also, the owner of the inn lets her do some gigs here and there. However, she just wants to save enough money, so she could go to college and fulfill her dream of studying music, even though most of her friends tell her that she doesn't need to. It was a Friday night and instead of being all cuddled up beneath her bed sheets in her way to dreamland, Mia could be glimpsed, running around aimlessly, inside of her apartment. She was frantically searching for her job uniform, so she could change rapidly and head over to Hirashi Restaurant. The owner had called her a couple of minutes back, and she could have sworn that she could hear desperation leaking from the man’s tone, though, she would never say something like that to her boss. One of the evening shift’s waitresses had called in due to illness, and they were short on staff at the moment. If it weren't for the fact that she really needed to keep the job, she would have stayed at home and sleep contently. ‘Where the heck is it?... Aha! Found it.’ Finding the uniform, which consisted of a fiery red, knee length kimono with white flower outlines, a yellow and midnight blue sash and some low, black heels, she quickly ran to the small bathroom to change. After finishing the task, she quickly grabbed her small bag, a black coat too big for her size, and ran out of her apartment in the direction of the establishment. Although, she worked most weeknights up until then, they had never needed her to work on a Friday night. According to her boss, a girl her age needed to have at least a free night to have some fun. The way he would always put emphasis on the word fun made her a bit suspicious of what kind of thoughts he was having at the moment. She knew she shouldn't assume things about the owner but sometimes she would ask herself, why wasn't he married yet. However, she would always express gratitude to the owner for being concerned about her. But, let’s face it; if she -a 20 year old woman- were afraid to walk along at night most of the other nights she had to work, on a Friday, that fear was doubled. I mean it was the beginning of the weekend and the streets would be filled with people but the Shibuya district was not the safest place to hangout. Particularly, now a days, since crime has been increasing lately. The stars could be seen glowing on the night sky and the moon shined over the tall buildings of the city, giving it a mysterious, dark look. Her black locks of hair swayed with the breeze, some of them getting in the way of her vision. Her blue eyes were always attentive on her surroundings. Mia, carefully avoided any alleys or roads that were deserted, just to be safe. However, she did have to pass by one alley that was close to the restaurant. Quickly, she hurried her steps but before she turned the corner, she heard a horrible scream. Looking back, she scanned the area and saw nothing. 'Did I just hear a scream?' Frowning, she waited to see if she would hear it again, however it stayed quiet. Shrugging, she started to walk again, but was stopped by another scream. 'What the hell!? I definitely heard it this time...' Turning around, she decided to investigate. Now, most would call her crazy but she was a curious person, however she didn't know what was in store for her. And like many would say; curiosity killed the cat.
