In Japan, there are many high school students that wander the streets, adults that go to work, and storekeepers are helping stay busy every single day without rest. These are just normal middle or low class. Then, we have high class; the people who have it "all easy". They don't have to worry about taxes, food stock, they can access their family so easily...
But then, there is a high-school girl named Etsu Saburo. Rich, high class... Doesn't have a thing to worry about, right?
She may be rich, but she has lots of things to worry about...
Etsu walked to the convenience store after school to buy some lunch before walking home. When her parents were alive, she had no chance to take time and appreciate the outside. The birds were tweeting as she walked, the voices of strangers buzzed around her ears. They got annoying after a while but, 'I can bear with it,' is what she says to herself.
She reached the store and inside were a cashier, two high-school girls, and a drunk man. She ignored all of them since she didn't know what to say and went after the instant noodles.
'Ooo,' she whispers. 'Commoner food tonight I guess!' You'd think she is disappointed but she is actually excited to try some since no one let her try anything new.
"They may be safe and affect you like how the food has affected them!" They had warned her. But now, since she is free without her parents, she can try anything she'd like.
As she was waiting (not so) patiently for the cashier to scan her noodles and yogourt, the drunk man walked over to her. He looked her up and down and grinned mischievously.
"Hey there, girlie," he said. "Nice outfit you're wearing..." He walked closer and closer to her and the cashier yelled at him but the man ignored him. Etsu looked at the cashier and he gave her her noodles and yogourt in a bag and hurried her away before things got out of hand.
When she left, she began thinking about all the weird stuff that must happen to little girls if they aren't protected from guys like the one she has just encountered. 'I was just trying to wear a normal school uniform for once, too!'
She's rich so she could've gotten into a high-class school and her parents were extremely intent on doing exactly as such but, Etsu declined and went to a normal school. Also, friends and popularity are easier to earn when your parents come to school for you with a whole limousine...
But you're also popular when both your parents die from a mass murder that you managed to escape from.
