A mask can do anything to a person. It can hide a face, create a facade, portray emotions - fake expressions...
Indeed, I would say that a Mask is a powerful thing.
But there was this one girl, one that caught my attention... She wore a Mask, I remember that. Quite exceptionally well too, I give her my most-desired praises for her current skill.
At first, her Mask was for the public eye, portraying how she was to be in the favor of her parents.
The second time, she's fighting. Slashing and swinging, clinging on to the memory of what she holds dear. She tried not to burst into tears at that time, that, I clearly remember, as she firmly set a stone cold mask.
Once, it was to protect friends, and show them that she's alright so that they'd never worry.
Of course, she'd break down a few times, but she'd always keep it up, the best she could.
Another time, she picked up a mask to hide her intention for a sacrifice she had to make..
And ultimately LIE to her friends.
This is the tale of Chiara - D.B. - Machigai, a girl, a bearer of Masks.. the Mask's Mistress.
Cheerful, funny, loud, sarcastic, sadistic, melancholic, mysterious, dark... what words are enough to describe the Masks?
