So, I’m working on the prime minister story and the earthquake.

But there’s one story I’d really like to be on. The killer teen on the run. It’s crazy. She killed a woman in front of the emperor’s brother.

What makes a kid kill? Maybe she was pushed over the edge. Her dad killed himself and her mum died of cancer. Guess she had a death wish.

She’s a junior high school dropout. A foreigner in a strange land. Was this how she turned bad? Getting involved with yakuza.

But I just can’t imagine killing someone with a hammer. Hey if you’re out there, Hana Walker, drop me a line—I’d love to tell your story.

But maybe no-one cares. There’s only one story now: the earthquake.

How can Hana trust you to tell her story? You already called her a killer. Is this the famous unbiased media in action?

I don’t know that she did it, of course. But it’s looking pretty bad. The cops have witnesses, a murder weapon and DNA.

And a motive? Why would she kill a defenceless woman?

HikHayNewz
Well that would be where I’d love to tell her side of the story. What was she thinking when she drove that hammer into the woman’s skull?

If. And she’s no foreigner. She’s double.

Double? You mean Hafu?

TachibanaPR
Hafu. That says less than whole. She’s not. She’s every bit as English as she is Japanese. She’s both.

Beware labels. Just because you know the label doesn’t mean you understand what’s underneath.

You want to interview Hana Walker? Meet us at 3 p.m. at Ueno Zoo. By the pandas. Bring a camera crew.
