Eternal Rain: TAKEOVER

Plot Summary

It's been six years, and Reka Norikawa is still grieving over the loss of his friend, Hisao. When Reka’s father, the prejudiced General Norikawa, sends Reka to boot camp to force him to forget Hisao, Reka soon finds out that this boot camp is more than just a summer camp...


“What took you so long?” his father complains. “You’ll be late for camp!”

Reka and his mother climb into the car and Reka buckles his seat belt. He leans on the side of the door with his head resting on his hand and gazes out the window as the scenery flies by.

“You’d better get rid of the attitude, Reka,” his father snaps. “I don’t want to hear from any of your commanding officers that you refuse to take an active part.”

“Whatever,” Reka murmurs.

The car stops at a red light and his father turns to face him. “I mean it,” he growls. “Get your act together!”

“I don’t even see the point in this,” Reka retorts. “I don’t want to learn how to fight and I’m not a delinquent. What is this stupid boot camp for?”

“It’s to make you clean up your act!” Reka’s father yells furiously. “It’s time to grow up and stop thinking about that Peasant wretch you called a friend!”

“I don’t see what’s so wrong with–!”

“I don’t want to hear it! Now shut your mouth and lose the attitude!”

Reka bites his tongue and turns back toward the window.

“And while you’re at it, you can take that rag off your neck!” his father adds. “You won’t be needing it anymore.”
