Silence: A Forgotten Place

Silence: A Forgotten Place

0 INK

Along the Yonsetsu rail line there is a station that is overgrown with only a single track. The path from it leads to a small village that seems almost abandoned, yet the people who are there are a very friendly bunch.

1,223 readers have visited Silence: A Forgotten Place since Aniihya created it.

Introduction

On the small Yonsetsu rail line there is a seemingly unused station the train stops at a couple times a day. No one knows why it stops there because there is no village visible from it nor do any people board the train from there too often. The station itself is overgrown and tall grass peeks out from the track. Yet if you follow a path from the station, you arrive at a village with old run down building. Absolutely quiet at first, it seems people still live there. The village of Ginotsu is small with only about two hundred inhabitants with only 60 living in its main part. Surprisingly it has a school with two or three dozen students. The people in the village are very friendly and it seems almost like paradise. Yet each villager has something strange about them. Some seem to watch you, others seem to stalk you and some wont leave you alone. They seem too friendly as if they are afraid you will leave them and never return. Best you just be careful.

Ginotsu village: A population of 200 but only 60 in the main part of the village, Ginotsu has a small secondary school with two or three dozen students, a nearly abandoned train station, a local conbini (convenience store), a grocery store, a village cafe, a village bar, a single paved road with a single bus stop, seemingly outdated roadside vending machines, a shrine, a guesthouse, a bath house, a community center, a doctors office, a small police station and a small post office.

The people: The Ginotsu villagers are very friendly, probably even in a creepy way. They are open to make friends and seem to have a hard time letting people leave the village if they aren't from a neighboring village. Some watch you, some stalk you and some will even follow you if you go to the next town. They enjoy your company, but you sometimes wont enjoy theirs. The villagers are generally a bit weird and it feels like they don't want to be forgotten. However it is not like the village is mostly made up of old people abandoned by their family, rather the villagers are quite young on average with only a smaller older population as if the children have no desire to find employment in the city. Children usually stay at home until they are five and then visit primary school in the neighboring village. After that they go to the villages secondary school (which simply has a wear school type uniforms policy without any specification of what type). Some go to the university afterwards but eventually come back.

Why you might come to Ginotsu: You might have found a peaceful place to live and may have found the village by coincidence. You may want to have a peaceful vacation. You are adventurous and found the village. You may be a resident of a neighboring village. You may have wanted to find out why the train always stops at an empty station. Or you may have someone dear to you from the village. There are many possibilities, even ones not listed.

Notes: This is not a psycho thriller or a horror and definitely not Higurashi. No killing. Please refrain from yandere type characters. The villagers are dependent and not crazy.

"Well then tomorrow morning after breakfast I will take you home." Kyoko said. "Well anyways good night." She went to her room to go to sleep. Her room was furnished like the other rooms in the building.

The next morning, Kyoko got up and got ready. She put on capri pants, a beige blouse and a simple necklace with a blue pendant. She then make omurice for breakfast, hoping the smell would wake Tashiro up and have him rushing in to get some grub that she made.

When Kyoko told him to have a good night, Tashiro smiled and waved back. "Have a good night as well." As she left to her room Tashiro decided to slowly finish his sake giving him some time to think. "Wonderful Village and wonderful people. Its almost like something out of a fairy tale, but here I am enjoying the best hospitality since...well ever. I can see myself calling this place home." He spoke quietly to himself as he finished the last of his sake before going to his room.

In the morning the smell of food tickled Tashiro awake. He slowly sat up and wiped his eyes. "Man, that smells so good...but I have no money to pay for it...well maybe she might be willing to share some but man just asking her makes me feel even more guilty...wait! Remember! You are going to pay her back for this any way you can!" He gave himself a guilt speech and pep talk before standing up and made his way over where the smell originated from. "Good morning!" He exclaimed with a smile on his face.

"Good morning! Eat up on the omurice and when you have finished and gotten ready, then I can drive you back home." Kyoko said to Tashiro. "Do you live in Kokuro town or are you from a bit further away such as Ashigaru city?" Kyoko asked so she would know which direction to drive once Tashiro was ready to go.

"Um...T-Thank you very much." Tashiro slightly blushed when Kyoko let him eat. As he sat down to eat Kyoko asked him where he lived. "Oh yeah, I live a small ways away from Kokuro town in a quiet part of the woods. Sure it may have some animal and bug problems but other then that its home." Tashiro spoke as he began to eat the omurice.

(No problemo)

"Animal and bug problems? Are there monkeys digging in your trash and tons of moths flying around your place? If so, then maybe coming here would be better for you." Kyoko said. "Eat up, I gotta shower and change quickly and then we can leave."

Kyoko then went to shower. She had been cleaning all morning and was a bit sweaty from it. When done, she dried off and put on capri jeans, a light short sleeved tunic, anklets, sandals, her pendant necklace and dark blue ribbon choker. She only put a single braid in her hair. She then returned with keys in hand. "Okay, when you are ready we can go." Kyoko said. Pointing outside to a little kei convertible.

"If I had that problem I think I would have moved out years ago..." Tashiro chuckled as he began to now focus on his food when Kyoko went to go shower. Once she returned, Tashiro stood from his seat and began to stretch for a little bit. "I guess it's time to head out. Once we arrive at Kokuro town I will give you the directions to my home since it's well difficult for anyone to navigate that maze of a forest. Thankfully the only dead ends there have some nice viewing spots."

They got into Kyoko's car and drove off. They drove through the valley with mountains and forests passing by. The drive was probably 30 or 40 minutes until they got to the town of Kokuro. Kyoko then asked: "So please navigate me to your place." She smiled at him. The town itself was quite large compared to the village. Probably 40 or 50 times the population of Ginotsu. From here you could get to larger cities but also take a bus or the train to the villages.

As they drove through the valley, Tashiro occupied himself with his phone to pass the time. 30 or 40 minutes passed before they arrived at Kokuro, he then pocketed his phone before speaking. "From here you want to make a left here, keep going forward until you reach the third stoplight, take a right on that third stoplight until you make it to the outskirts of town. After we make it that far you should come across some woods, enter the woods and drive for about five minutes then make a left, my house should be there." Tashiro spoke.

Re: Silence: A Forgotten Place

It has been up for about a week now. I doubt anyone will find interest in it soon. So we might just have to start and hope that someone joins sometime.

Re: Silence: A Forgotten Place

Huh....that is true. I guess I always find your RP's to be appealing in some way. Or I'm just a sucker for things that have some mystery behind them. Well time to get to start my character.

Re: Silence: A Forgotten Place

You seem to be drawn toward my RPs. :D

Re: Silence: A Forgotten Place

This seems interesting, I sense secrets hidden in this RP! I shall make a character...tomorrow because I'm tired...hope this gets more attention.
