An excerpt from Atsuin Shizunko's journal.
It’s been three days since I’ve arrived at this island? I don’t know where I am really but since we were in Bungo before I guess I haven’t drifted off too far. Maybe I’m near Shikoku or if I’m lucky maybe I’m in northern Kyushu. I’ve found a nice clearing to sleep in and I’ve made it my base for a while.
Six days now and still haven’t got a clue where I am. My food is about to run out so I’ve been searching around the tree tops for fruit and nothing but I did find some nice warm leaves that I plan on using for something. I looked around all day for more food but all I found were berries and some turtles that I can’t really eat. Oh and it is confirmed that I am on an island and I can’t swim so I’m stuck here…for now
Nine days now and I’m about to run out of food but I think there are some kind of root vegetables that I saw some turtles eat. It also rained the day before yesterday which was nice but the earth is now all muddy and I can’t sleep. Also after the rain made some weird snakes and lizards appear, they’re harmless but I’m not sure yet so I’m gonna stay away from them for a while.
Twelve days now. I finally found those vegetables that the turtles eat, they tasted okay but they’re not really filling me up so I’ll try cooking them next. It rained again yesterday so now the earth is all weird but at least now I have bath thanks to this new lake.
The rain has once again started. It is the third rain since Atsuin has come on this island and it unbeknost to him this rain is warning for the things to come. Atsui the young 22 year old failure is taking a nice bath. A bath in which half of his body is submerged in water but that’s all that he can do. All that he can do is submerge his body halfway because he can’t swim. Unbeknownst to him water falls above him. Splash, splash, splash, trick and trick. "Spectacular it's raining again" He murmurs as he gets out off the lake.
