Hi, this is a short story I had to write for an English task last year. My teacher encouraged me to share it, so I'm gonna start here.
I tried my best to write in British English, but as I read a lot of stories written in American English there must be some parts where it seems more like an American novel than a British one.
Also, there may be some grammar mistakes, since I'm Spanish, English's not my first language. Now, with the characters!
Ame: a 15 years old Anglo Japanese boy who travels to London trying to stay away from the stress he is used to suffer because his studies in Tokyo. He is usually shy and with good manners –since good manners are indispensable for Japanese people–. He has stress problems but he tries to control them, usually not telling others when he is having problems. He is not very brave –but can get mad–, and he hates fights.
Niko (Nikodem): is a 15 years old Polish lukrian -well, almost 15-, he hates his life as a lukrian and it seems like if he hates even more Ame because he once had a normal life unlike Niko, who was born as a lukrian and not infected as Ame. He won't go easy on anyone and acts more like a typical teenager, but inside he is shy and good hearted. He once had an older sister, but she was trapped by the humans, making him loss trust on any human.
Aleski: a 21 years old Russian lukrian, he takes care of Niko even though Niko seems to hate him. Aleski is a mysterious character as well as his past is. Is well known by other lukrians and feared too because the rumours about his killer side related to his past. But he is friendly to Ame and try to help him and other lukrians when they first are infected, but still he has a dark aura surrounding him, making clear he'll be kind until someone tries anything against him.
Anti.Lukrian.Disturbances (A.L.D): it's an organization of people that trap and –usually– end the lukrian's life or experiment with them to know why they are what they are. They have no mercy with them.
Hisao: Ame's cousin, he is 23 years old, and he studies to become an A.L.D agent.
Yukio: Ame's older brother, 19 years old, lazy and indifferent, but he actually worries for his family.
Haruka: Ame and Yukio's older sister, 21 years old, always working and very positive and optimistic.
Akane: a sweet Japanese girl, is Ame's best friend and crush since both of them were ten years old, though she's a year older than him.
Eban: a 16 years old English teen that Ame met in a party.
Mr.Ackerman: a mysterious man that control the A.L.D. He won't rest until he hunt down all the lukrians, since his daughter was killed by one.
