The Crossroads of the Aether
Mina Mori has not received any gifts yet
Greetings. I do not enjoy revealing all the details of myself at once so I will keep this brief. If you do not know me, I am Mina Mori. If you do know me, it may be under a different name and guise.

I have yet to meet my fellow crew members, and this relationship with Joshua. . . dare I call it romance or love? I have never experienced such emotions so I…Continue
Almost immediately after I wrote my last entry did great misfortune fall upon Joshua and me. A great storm arrived, causing the cancellation of our trip to a resort in Texas with some friends. I think a couple of them would have braved the weather had they not fallen ill or become confused about the date of departure.
Then I received a message from my family, scolding me again for my behavior. Although I am used to hearing my mother’s disapproval, her remarks have been…Continue
