"It's a timeless question, no? Well, let's answer it now. Should you, an innocent, have to die to atone for the mistakes of your father, and his father before him?"
September Riding liked to mind her own business; as foretold in any small town such as Aontua Wood stuck in the past, that was a difficult thing to maintain. On her final year of high school, she just wanted to get in and get out, ready to make her own name elsewhere instead of carrying the one she had been burdened with since birth.
These plans are completely derailed with the most gruesome murder Aontua had seen yet, thrusting the town into a hysteria.
At the center of it all? September herself, as well as the newest edition to Aontua High's teaching staff.
