She was a loner, never one to try and make friends. She was just that girl in the corner. And she thought, why should that change? It's never made a difference, so why make it happen?
She became the rebel, the one that was targeted. She learned to fight, and became a winner. She became ignored again, all the way up to her senior year of high school. She'd started buying cigarettes from the college kids wanting extra cash when she turned 17.
No one knew what her home life was like, but it was rumored that she lived alone in an apartment now that she was 18. She had been kicked out of the orphanage she had lived in. Her parents died in a car accident when she was young, they said.
But in reality, her father left her mother for a younger woman almost ten years ago, and it had been all she and her mom could do to keep things together. She worked part-time at a bar cleaning before it was time to open, the only place that would hire her when she was only 15 and barely legal for working.
Still, she got good grades despite seeming disinterested during class. Teachers left her alone. She didn't smoke on school property. She was just... ignored.
Her name? Rei Nazuki
