you have been asked to join the military signature:
I'm not leaving!
Don't be silly
we are leaving, I have been offered a job in California. get packing
Sumiko's two cousins (Ichiro and Bull) get asked to the military. they accept and only her, her brother and her Aunty are left. sumiko doesn't get to say her goodbyes to anyone of them which really upsets her because they were like her brothers, actually, they were more than that, they were like a part of her that had gone missing.
the goverment decide that the don't want anyone in the camp anymore and advise the camp-dwellers to leave. Sumiko doesn't approve of this idea, she thinks she will be safe from the war if she stays in the camp and wants her family to accompany her; everyday she tells her auntie that she is not leaving and her little brother, Tak-Tak refused to go with out her.
her aunt stubbornly decides that they ARE leaving even though Sumiko objects strongly to this. Her auntie doesn't want to stay because she wants to have a job and a better future and is greatful for the oppertunity.
