Chapter 1: Girl next door

Lying in a pool of his own blood, Little White thought back to his childhood.

He had been obsessed with forts, and this was because of childhood trauma. He was born with a special constitution which drew special woman towards him, sadly not special in a good way.

Some where stalkers, others where psychopaths or serial killers, but they were usually just bullies and the like.

As you can imagine this made way for a rocky childhood, where Little White was continuously bullied and humiliated by the mean girls, looked down on by the sweat girls, and shunned by the boys.

Luckily, he had a form of mental shield. Whenever things got to bad Little White would think back to when he was five, in his makeshift pillow-fort, isolated from the dangers outside.

This partially worked, keeping Little White from having a breakdown, but also making him increasingly more afraid of the real world.

Little White was trapped in this downward spiral and things fell to the point where he wouldn't leave the house without an important propose.

His parents had passed away long ago in a freak accident, and Little Whites only friend was his neighbour, Akasuki, sadly she was a girl, and although she always was nice to him, he was still terrified of her.

On the day before summer break, while Little White was shuffling around alleyways and shortcuts, as to avoid meeting anyone, he ran into Akasuki.

"White please go out with me!" With a red face, Akasuki almost yelled out a confession. The shocked Little White was so shocked he froze.

{Why? Why her to? Isn't she one of the nice ones? Is she really sweet and likes me? Is this a trap? To scary} Stuttering out a "I-im sorry" he ran away, not noticing Akasuki's face turning pale, as a bright sun freezing over.

After slamming and locking the door, Little White sat against it and breathed out a sigh of relief. He lived in a rented studio apartment that he paid for with his inheritance from his parents. It was small, and next to many similar appartements, one was owned by Akasuki.

Suddenly bright flashes of blue light blinded and shocked Little White, forcing him to close his eyes. When he opened them again a familiar yet strangely unfamiliar person stood in front of him.

"Wrong answer" a monotone voice came out from her, a voice that Little White had never heard before, coming from a person he had heard talk so many times before, yet never like this.

Before he could answer, he felt a cold sensation from his stomach and looking down he saw a kitchen knife sticking out from his gut, surrounded by a steady stream of blood leaving his body.

Looking up Akasuki was gone and he slowly slid down from his sitting position. Little White became submersed in his memories, and thinking of his old pillow fort, he let all his discontent and regret leave his body in a hoarse whisper:

"I want to build a Fort, cough cough, a Fort where i can be safe, happy and long away from this horrible world."

After spitting out blood, Little White passed out not noticing the white light surrounding his body.

Waking up, Little White found his head hurting as if someone had banged it with a hammer. Pain from his back made him realise that he had slept on a hard surface and not his bed. Pushing himself up to a sitting position he suddenly remembered everything and clutched his head screaming.

"Aaaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhh"

Panting he patted his stomach and lifted his shirt, looking for a wound, but he saw nothing, except that his clothes was soaked with blood.

Hearing a scream a little away from him, he waked up from his stupor. Looking around he saw a huge white hall, which looked like it was hade of hard plastic. Inside the hall were many young people, half of which were asleep. Almost everyone looked bloody, but closer inspection revealed that nobody where hurt.

Most of those awake looked just as panicked as Little White, just a few managed to keep their cool, one of which was a girl sitting right next to Little White. She was a petite girl and had white hair and almost blood-red eyes, she was wearing a bloodied white hoodie and skirt, so her colours matched. She tapped Little White on his shoulder.

"Did you die?" Her voice was feminine and quiet, yet her words schocked Little White, not because of what she said, but just because she touched him.

"Wh-wh-what do you mean?" He stuttered out.

"Did you die?" She repeated "Did you also die before coming here"

Finally waking up, and realising what she had asked he answered "Yes" letting his imagination run a little wild he then asked "Is this the afterlife?"

"I guess" she answered, as quiet as before "I'm Rini"

Little White said his name and they both stayed quiet, however although Rini was calm he was panicking under the surface and slowly and unnoticeably moving away from Rini.

Slowly everyone woke up and a tall man with blond hair was calming everyone down and the majority walked over to him, unifying. Only around half was still siting where they woke up, and this included Rini and Little White. Rini was uninterested and Little White was scared of people so he kept his distance.

Suddenly one of the walls rose up with a rumbling noise, attracting attention from everyone in the room and behind the wall was a stage with a mass of white light floating with a brilliant radiance.
