Shinobu Maehara was still missing, she had now been missing for 2 months.
They contacted Interpol because it wasn't the first time a girl under 18 years had gone missing in Tokyo.
But they didn't have one single clue about Shinobu or her whereabouts. The police was about to conclude her being dead, and probably that she was raped and killed.
It wasn't the first time something like that happened in Tokyo.
The chance of getting Shinobu back alive,safe and sound were slim.
Even thinner than air.
Sooner or later,they had to accept the fact; shinobu was most likely dead and wasn't coming back.
Her life was over, in a matter of 15 years.
The police were about to close the case, all they had to was, locating the body of Shinobu Maehara.
But neither Motoko, Su, Keitaro, Naru, Mutsumi, Haruka,Seta and Sara had given up hope on finding Shinobu safe and sound.
After all, there had been a case of a girl disappearing when she was 13 and when she was 20 she came back, with no bruises.
But lots of traumatic experiences.
Point was; when everyone assumed she was dead, she was alive all the time.
"We cant just give up! I know she's out there, somewhere!"
Su refused to give up the dying hope of hers.
"NO! If the police doesn't find her, i will personally go look for her, i wont give up!"
"Su, will you just listen..?"
"I wont give up,not if it takes the rest of life to find her!"
Naru kept quiet,it was useless.
"She is my friend!!!!!" Su had tears in her eyes.
Su picked up a picture of Shinobu, that were taken a year ago, on her 14th birthday.
A time when everyone was happy, and cheerful.
Everything about Hinata Sou, was changed, completely.
The whole atmosphere was different, the playful and energetic life in Hinata was changed into a dark and silent one.
It wasn't able to bear, it all changed to the worse when Shinobu went missing. Su wasn't full of energy as she used to be, Kitsune stopped drinking sake.
Motoko wasn't training.
Naru wasn't banging the **** out of Keitaro when he by accident saw her half naked.
Mutsumi didn't trip over anymore.
Haruka couldnt be found with a smoke in her mouth anymore, she stopped. Sara was sad, affected with the other people at Hinata
"Let me go!! i have no value to you!!! What do you want from me?!"
"Would your friends come look for you?"
The man used his hand,flat hand to hit Shinobu in the face. His hand left a burning and red mark on her cheek.
"No...i dont have any friends..i promise you!"
"You live in an all girls Dormitory."Shinobu knew it was wise to keep her mouth shut.
"I know who your friends are, and i know all of the people there are your friends."
"How long will it take before they're on the trace of your whereabouts?!"
Shinobu refused to tell anything.
"Spill the beans!"
He grabbed Shinobu's t shirt and held it tight,and raised his hand, to beat her again.
"Tell me, and i might spare you and your pathetic life!"
"No, i wont tell you anything!"
"You're not worth a damn ****!"
Shinobu tried to make the wound on her cheek stop burning.
"Do you know that?
"You worthless piece of ****, it makes me wonder,why you ever had to be born into this world."
"Please let me go...."
"I don't know why someone was stupid to want to have a daughter like you! Do you miss them?!"
Shinobu didn't answer.
"Thought not, you don't love your parents, poor them, they have a daughter that doesn't love them, she doesn't even miss them!"
Shinobu opened her mouth to say something.
"You're a disgrace! You shouldn't be born, maybe i should just finish you off,right now?"
"NO!!! I BEG YOU!" Shinobu screamed in fear.
