Max Meets Yoshiko and Liz

This just keeps getting stranger as we go along. These two angels aren’t above causing heart attacks. They still scare me to this day. I’m sure we are all on good terms, but I’m not too keen on testing that out. In the beginning, we weren’t that close believe it or not. I still can’t figure out those days for the life of me.


Yoshiko… I shook my head.

Oh. Thinking about her gives me headaches. I can feel my teeth aching already. Wait, give me a minute. I closed my eyes and took in deep breath. After a few seconds, I opened my eyes again. Okay, I’m ready to talk now.

I met Yoshiko around the same time I met up with Lisa. I think it was Lisa, I’m pretty sure it was. It had to be because I can still remember the bruises on my cheeks. How did that happen? Let me back up a little bit.

I forgot exactly where I was going on this particular day. I just remember I was once again trying to avoid my house. (Again, that is a long story I don’t wish to get into. Moving on…) I was walking down the road when I hear, “Bitch, give it back!”

That statement was stop loud that I stopped in my tracks. I turned my head to see two women yelling at each other. One of them looked all sweaty in her black tank top and brown shorts as she screamed at the other one in a short blue mini dress. Mini dress looked like she didn’t give a shit at tank top. An uneasy feeling began to swirl around in my stomach.

I should do something… However, instinct told me to stay back. I do not like watching girls fight. Guys fight to prove a point, but girls fight to kill. The best thing would be to turn around and walk away before it gets ugly, right?

I walked towards the women as tank top raised her hand to slap mini dress. I tilted my head, blinking. “Lisa?” She must not have heard me probably because she was too busy getting slapped by mini dress. I covered my mouth as I gasped. Lisa turned to mini dress, glaring.

“You!” she shouted. She slapped mini dress back. I panicked and raced over to them. Unfortunately, I took the brunt of the force from a double punch from both sides.

“Maxxie?” I heard as I dropped to the ground. The rest of that day feels like a blur to me. I’m sorry I can’t explain all of it to you. Maybe Lisa or Yoshiko could fill in the blanks. I’m not holding my breath, though.


She scares the most. Remember when I was talking about the day I met Makoto? That was Liz with him. Well, I ran into her again. Yeah.

Sit back with me kids, I am going to try and make it as short as possible. I took in a deep breath. Here I go…

This time, I ran into her on my way to the library. Yes, I was half-hiding and I was going to look up something. Follow me on this, okay? I had just turned the corner when I felt something blow past my right ear. I whipped around with big eyes. What was that? I turned and happened to see that dark haired girl from the convenient store, staring at me. I pointed at her as I began shaking.

“You!” I shouted. That girl gave me a flat look.

“What?” she asked.

“Did you do that to me?”

She gave me a strange look. “What are you talking about?”

“A witch! A witch, I tell you!”

“Did you hit your head or something?”

“Huh? So that wasn’t you, blowing on my ear?”


“Are you sure?”

“Yes.” She rolled her eyes and groaned. I rubbed the back of my head, laughing nervously.

“I’m sorry, but who are you again?” I asked. The girl with dark brown hair snorted as she pressed her hand to her forehead.

“Liz,” she said. “We’ve met before, unfortunately, you idiot.” I raised my eyebrow.

“We have?” I asked. “Where?”

“The convenient store, remember?”

It took me a few seconds before the train docked at the station. “Oh! That girl was you?”


I frowned as another thought came into my head. “Then… who was that boy with you?”

Liz folded her arms across her chest. “Shit if I know.”

“So… he wasn’t with you that day?”


Basically, this back and forth kept up until she walked away frustrated. But… Why did I get this feeling we were going to see each other once again?
