Part 99: Epsiode 91: Nageki
I never thought much of it at the time, but apparently everybirdie there was a war orphan.
But, I did not resent the humans who had started the war. I did not care.
I thought that living with other chicks and no parents was as natural as could be.
They had guns, and kept shouting.
Free humanity, free humanity.
I think thats what they said.
They barricaded themselves in our house, and killed us one at a time. I was helpless. I could only hide in the corner and weep as my family was killed before my eyes.
