The Hollow Students of Karakura Ch. 3Keiko held the paper tight in her fist on the way home so she wouldnt loose it. She reached her house which was slightly bigger than the other ones in the neighborhood. It was mostly because her brother, Ulquiorra, made pretty good money so they were able to upgrade to a better place. She walked up the stairs noticing the shiny black car parked in the driveway. That meant Ulquiorra was home. She unlocked the door and walked in.
"Kiki!" the pet name she gave him. "Im home!"
"Im in the living room..." he responded.
Keiko took off her shoes and ran to the living room where her brother was watching tv. She jumped on the couch giving him a big hug adding a small smile to his usually expressionless face. Ulquiorra graduated just last year but didnt try to pursue a career. Instead, he made his money by selling artwork. He would stay up many nights painting what was on his mind and would sell them to willing buyers. They were pretty deep and depressing pieces of work but they still sold.
Poetic PsychosisIn thirty seconds, the next shell would fall. Every night was the same, but every night Lorenzo experienced it as if it were the first time. His throat felt swollen; breathing was hard. He glanced around at the others; young men like him who had been shipped out in the name of honour and freedom. There was no honour in this, no freedom. Only death behind your eyelids, and a fear so gutting, that it carved out your innards and left you a hollow husk. Lorenzo tried to breathe, tried to assure himself that he was still whole, still made of flesh. They had lied when they told him he was ready.
Matteo ran towards him, arms out, rifle swinging uselessly at his side. He shouted for him to run, but Lorenzo remained motionless, unable to move as his friend’s warning was lost in the constant blare of gunfire. None of them were ready.
“The cycle is repeating. It is not safe.” The voice was soft and weak, yet it carried over the gunfire and battle cries without impediment.
