The Sky was cloudy. With snowflakes and covering half the world, the laughter never stopped.
His tiny figure sat on top of the tallest tower in Tokyo City. Legs swing a few times. His puffy cheeks were red, the tip of his nose was not to be outdone, and he showed a soft, light reddish color.
No one noticed his existence, even though he was sitting on top of the highest tower. Everyone carried out their activities with no irregularities, problems, or disasters that rocked the entire city.
The little boy appeared happy and unaffected by the cold as he hummed a song. Even though his breath emitted a cold pseudo-vapor, he still smiled.
"Ahh~ so this is life. I've never felt this way at all. That old grandfather always locked me in a magic box. I don't even understand myself and always ask... why is it only me?"
It tousled his pale white hair in the wind. With a face like a weather announcer who can't wait to share world news. He also has similarities, like a child artist behind the scenes.
Apart from that, the clothes he wore might also raise big question marks. How could a small child wearing only a shawl survive in the cold?
He may not be wearing pants, but the cloth is enough to cover half of his body down to the bottom at once.
He got up and stood, stepping on the cold snowy steel with his bare feet.
"I just remembered. Doesn't this city have a lot of interesting things?"
With his head titled, he thought about various interesting things. Collecting it in his small mind, after that he jumped slowly while rubbed his head several times.
"Um! Ok, then I'll be gone for a bit. Maybe there's no harm in a little guy like me enjoying this cultural richness, right?"
Because of those words, Pandora remembers his dark pas again.
"Not like that old grandfather who always forbade me to wander around. What did he say? Dangerous? Hahahaha... how could a frail, and tiny body like this cause disaster?" he glanced at his small body.
He cleared his throat. When his mouth slowly parted, his eyes radiated high curiosity.
"Then i won't wait any longer. Let's jump in! Eh? W-wait a minute. What if someone asks my name?"
After almost wanting to throw himself from the top of tower. The little guy suddenly stopped in his tracks and entered thinking mode.
"What kind of creature am I?"
While scratching his head, "Oh! I just remembered, Father said that I was an object, but it gave me a soul and became a living creature. Look like I should use that name."
He grinned at the gray sky.
"Pandora... sounds good, doesn't it?
He... Pandora just smiled and stood for a moment.
Deep in his heart, he knew it was just parable that was not very important. However, because now he could enjoy life, his energetic little body couldn't wait, and wanted to feel the world he was now seeing.
"Good! With this it's all over, hehe. Time to go."
His little feet stepped forward and immediately threw himself down.
Without fear, trembling, or hesitation. Pandora brought his body into free fall and felt a gust of chilly wind at the end of the year.
People say that the last month of the year is a rare time. Many of them spend time with loved ones or just enjoy the lively city streets filled with various views.
Those who walk holding each other's hand, those who sell food and give out free samples, or those who stand wearing cute costumes while holding notice boards that say, "Have Fun".
There is nothing more festive than seeing a crowd of people looking forward to something. As the name suggests... the end of the year and soon to be the beginning of the year. Days passed, month changed, and years changed.
Like depicting a drop of morning dew entering a puddle of water. Full of fresh warmth, fast and also very short. That's how every moment changes and shows unusual views.
On the other hand, Pandora, who managed to land himself in the middle of large crowd of people, was posing like a first-place athlete. Both hands were raised upwards, and a joyful expression radiated clearly from his round face.
"Hehe. This is fun. I rarely get to do things like this."
After that, he walked past the people passing by. His eyes flashed with a gleam of curiosity. Little Pandora watched them silently. Even though is reality no one can be ware of its existence.
An innocent little man, his tiny figure, wandered around like a normal child.
However, for him who was aware of this, little Pandora didn't seem to care. He, who is said to be a figure who brings destruction and bring all kinds of disaster, is roaming among groups of people.
He was curious about the objects the used.
"What is that thin? If it's a watch in your hand, right? Why is it small? Usually, I always see its big shape and it always adjust to direction of the sun. Hmm, this is interesting!"
However, when he was enjoying the strange invention used by the surrounding people. A small child wearing a hat and black hair who was holding the strap of his small bag was watching Pandora's strange behavior.
Like a tiny spart that stung, Pandora noticed it, and immediately turn around. Now both of them look at each other. Eyes meet eyes and body meets body. When the little boy took one step, Pandora did the same.
According to Pandora, the little boy in front of him was strange. People couldn't see his form, but the child could see him. Suddenly, this raised big question in his mind.
Gradually their distance got closer, closer, closer, and finally only the last step remained. With such a close distance, Pandora tilted his head.
"Who are you? Why can you see me?"
"See you? Hmm... is that strange?"
"Umm. That's it. I think it's a little strange."
Suddenly Pandora's whole body had goosebumps. He didn't understand, but he knew very well that his current feeling were very different from all the feeling he had ever felt.
"Will you be my friend?" asked Pandora enthusiastically.
"Friend? Oh, umm, wait a minute...."
For a few moments the little boy thought, and Pandora couldn't wait to hear his answer. Even now, his "heart" is beating wildly beyond his curiosity about all the object and technology he sees.
"Okay. Let's be friends," he answered with a big smile.
"Is it true? Finally! Finally, I have friends too!"
Pandora immediately grabbed the little boy's hand, then lifted them up then down. A smile full of relief, expectation, and happiness spread across Pandora's face.
He never thought he would make his first friend in a place like this, but all that happiness suddenly faded as the little boy was amazed.
Suddenly, Pandora was shocked and immediately left the place, holding his first friend.
"W-what's wrong? Why are we running?" asked the little boy.
However, hearing his friend's innocent question, he stopped and faced him with a firm gaze.
"Promise me. Promise... whatever happens, we will remain friend," he said seriously.
"I-i don't understand b-but okay. I promise-"
As soon Pandora wanted to hug him, his small body was suddenly pulled by something from behind.
"Ughh... before that, can I know your name? Ahhhh!... "
"H-hey! What did you do to my friend?!... Adistira! My name is Adistira... don't forget that!" answered Adistira as he ran after Pandora, who was being carried by a black entity.
Unfortunately, the figure who was pulling Pandora didn't answer and continued to pull Pandora away from him. Taking him Hight into the sky and not long after, Pandora figure and the figure disappeared, swallowed by black clouds.
Exactly December 28, 2008, is a day that Adistira will never forget. Because since then, the whole world has changed after the black snowfall hit every hemisphere--including other tropical areas.
Adistira’s life changes when he witnesses people being killed by mysterious creatures when a supernatural phenomenon occurs in his small town. In the midst of the chaos, a small child appears and declares himself an observer.
When the world was on the verge of destruction, another mysterious entity appeared before Adistira. He will help him complete the singularity on one condition.
