I wanted to write a little blurb about what Mackenzie’s doing rn bc,,, I can.
Sitting cross-legged on the floor of the dusty old basement sat a girl, skin pale from lack of sunlight and only venturing outside during nighttime. Her long, dark brown hair — which was commonly styled in two low pigtails with her scrunchies — was let down, practically pooling around her. A newly grown ahoge sat plainly atop her head; it was rather thin and drooped a bit, but still an ahoge.
She twirled one of the strands of hair on the sides of her face (specifically the left strand) around her pointer finger, singlehandedly using her right hand to maneuver the light gray video game controller she was holding. The blue light emitted from the small TV had been like a shot of caffeine to the bloodstream; one she needed, seeing as it was four o’clock in the morning. A small window was open and so were the small white, lacy curtains, letting slivers of moonlight pour in to provide illumination. It was the only way the girl could see the controls.
Her lips curled upwards into a smile as she finished her attack on the enemy she was fighting, the dark green skin of the creature matching the color of the short-sleeved pajamas she was wearing. After wrapping up the battle she saved the game, walking towards the small TV set and turning it off. She turned her russet brown gaze to the bunk bed in the northern-westernmost corner of the room, the white sheets neatly made and a few blankets haphazardly thrown onto it. She swiftly walked towards it, climbing up the short ladder and sagging onto the top bunk.
She placed her head onto the white pillow, pulling the covers over her head. She shut her eyes tightly, making an attempt to engulf herself in darkness and drift off into sleep.
But she couldn’t when she reminded herself of them, and how guilty she felt leaving them behind, and how especially guilty she felt leaving him behind—
Her breath stopped short. What if they had come after her? Did they even... know how much danger they could be in? What if they were in danger?
The girl closed her eyes tighter, as if trying to force herself to sleep. Worrisome thoughts had wiggled their way into her brain, keeping her awake. She descended down the ladder, opening the nearby oak door.
... one coffee courtesy of her newfound uncle wouldn’t hurt, right?
yep Mackenzie found a relative who is kinda sorta,,, her only living relative,,,
his name is Jake and he runs a café
Since Mackenzie got Akira on the quiz I decided to make a nod towards p5 via making her live in someone’s basement in a café for a short-ish period of time but that’s about where the similarities end
