In a place sheltered from the rest ofthe world, twelve children dwell. These children have been gifted by the zodiac as many others have before, yet not many people know about the groups of the cursed and blessed children. For as long as they have lived, they have lived basically normal lives. The only people they know who are not zodiac are their teachers and cook, however, mostly, they are satisfied with their lives. Now, only two days away, is New Year’s Eve. On this day, all twelve children shall gather together to celebrate their greatest event. On this event, they will be celebrating the beginning of the year of the rabbit. Hiroko sat curled up in the corner of the game room nearest to the heater, five blankets smothering her. She watched as the other zodiac played. Most everyone was in jolly spirits, waiting New Year’s Eve. Though she was excited, she couldn’t get over the fact she absolutely hated how cold winter was. If only they lived where the seasons were reversed.
