The Mute Chapter 4 Shade said "Of course." I didn't want to impose on anyone... 'It would probably be best if I don't...' I signed. "You need a place to stay, so why not stay here?" Alice said, smiling widely at me. I shook my head, clutching my duffel bag in my hand. I did want to stay, but I didn't want to feel like a problem. "Please stay, we want you here," Takadi said, pouting. I sighed, I really wasn't sure about this... "Stay for a week, and if you like it here, then stay as long as you want to," Alice said, sensing my indecison. I nodded, I could do that. I could stay for a week. I would be as little of a burden to them as possible, though. I decided that I would just kind of waver in the background... I was good at that anyway... "Here, I'll show you a room I think you'll love, you can stay in it" Takadi said, taking my hand. I bit my lip to keep a blush from spreading across my cheeks. Why was he capable of doing that without even trying? Why was I blushing because of this stranger? He led
The Mute: Chapter 2+3 c: I woke up the next morning and noticed that I felt really groggy. Maybe I could go somewhere... The shower room at the community pool maybe? If Japan even had one of those... I grabbed my duffel bag and shoved the pillow and blanket inside it. Then, I put on some sunglasses to hide the bruise on my face. I'd really thought ahead for this. Maybe I also had some clothes to swim in? I didn't have time to look right now. So I just grabbed the duffel bag and started walking, not really sure where I was going or where I would end up. I had to find a map of the city or something, so that I knew where I was going. Otherwise, I'd probably end up being totally lost. After that I had to get some food. I had a little bit of money, about fifty-six dollars to spend. That would last me a while as long as I spent my money wisely. I knew the mall wasn't far, only about a block away and the food was on the bottom level. But before I could go I needed to find the pool. If they even had
The Mute: Chapter 1 (New OC December) Chapter 1: My name is December. I'm a mute, to put it quite simply. It means I can't talk. I never have been able to. Although I know some sign launguage, but it really doesn't do me much good. Not many people seem to understand it, I guess. I'm a freak. They treat me like one at school, and at home. My parents hate me too, I'm sure. To them, I was just a problem. Extra food to put on the table. Extra clothes to buy. Extra money which to them, was a waste. But they were well known and respected people, so they weren't about to let a mute, emo daughter ruin their lives. I learned that after I got home from my run. I run in the mornings, so I can imagine I'm running away from this hellhole. I really hated living in that house, but it was better than being homeless... My "mother" instantly turned on me. "Where were you?!" my mom shrieked. I rolled my eyes and signed 'On a run, do you not pay attention?' She looked enraged. I just kind of shrugged. I mean seriously, I hadn't even
