Kino's Journey XII: Frontispiece

Frontispiece: A Request


“What is it, Hermes?”

“Don't die.”

“What's with you all of a sudden? Is there a lethal pitfall ahead?”

“No. I just thought of something, that's all. I can only move around like this because you're alive, Kino. I guess I could carry other people, too, but I don’t know if they'd ride me around as much as you. That's why I don't want you to die. I just wanted to tell you, since I never did before.”

“All right. I'll do my best to survive. I'll take good care of you, too, Hermes.”

“I'm counting on you.”

“Then I guess this means I can ask you for something, too.”

“Okay. What is it?”

“Wake up early in the morning, wake up early in the morning, wake up early in the morning, wake up early in the morning, wake up early in the morning.”


“Are you listening?”

The fact that you cry

The fact that you lose your temper

The fact that you get angry

The fact that you hate

The fact that you scream

The fact that you suffer

The fact that you mourn

The fact that you despair

Or the fact that you come to a resolution

Cannot prove that you are right.

-Everybody Has the Right to Make Mistakes-

  4. My name is Karina, I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through all my life a weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how i could be transformed into a powerful when i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email:
