He was a Caucasian sixteen year old boy, here in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Japan</st1:place></st1:country-region> with ag roup of other American and also some European kids on a tour of a temple and a shrine. He had amber colored eyes, messy brown hair that covered most of his forehead and ears, and soft facial features. He didn't exactly look feminine, but he wasn't masculine either, evident by his minimal muscle tone. He was of average height and weight for his age, standing in at 5 feet 4 inches. He wore a earthy green colored short sleeved t-shirt, khaki shorts, white tennis shoes and white socks. All in all there was nothing that really stood out about him, excluding the fact that he was a tourist. He glanced down at his watch, noticing that he had taken a bit longer then what he had originally expected on his break, being 3:02 pm. However, he wasn't overly worried because the guide would most likely know when there was someone missing, and even if they had resumed the tour then it wouldn't be too hard for him to catch up and find where they are at, being the only sizable group of Caucasians in the area. You couldn't miss them, right? Still, better safe then sorry, he quickened his pace a bit in order to keep them from waiting at the rendezvous point for too long. He couldn't read the signs, but he was pretty sure that he had back tracked correctly to a set of double doors leading to the outside, revealing a bright afternoon sun with plenty of chirping cicadas. What there was a notable lack of, however, was his tour group. <o:p> </o:p> "Now where could they be..." he pondered, glancing around with an increased sense of urgency. He planned on staying calm, but he wasn't actually expecting that they would leave him like this. Was he that unnoticeable? He was sure that they said to meet him at the east entrance...right? Was he not atthe east entrance after all? He tried to find an English sign in the area that would help clarify him on this matter, but failed miserably. The only Japanese that he knew was from watching anime, which hardly prepared him for finding his own way around. He was getting too nervous to remember which direction the sun was beginning to set in, which was the one clue that told him he was indeed mixed up about his current location. Instead, he decided to head back inside and search for either his tour group or someone that knew English who could lead him to them. After around ten minutes without any luck, he eventually found himself in some sort of back entrance. Had he been able to read Japanese, he would have noticed the "Do not enter" sign painted in read next to the door. Inside this new area were multiple hanging flower pots, overgrown weeds, and some stepping stones leading to a small pond and a stone monument type of thing, but he couldn't be sure exactly what it was. Perhaps it would be something talked about during the tour? The lighting in the area was poor, so it took him a moment to notice that there was a girl covered by the shadows of the monument. Perhaps she would know something, or at the very least he could wait here for the tour group to arrive, if they ever did. He began to walk over to her location, hopeful that she would help him get out of this. If all else failed then he'd just have to call his mom to come pick him up early. mess.
