"The True-Blood Racer" July 15, 2005 My name is Koshiko.I just moved out my Mom's house into my own apartment by Tokyo. Racing is in my blood. My dad ,Ichiro, was a professional drifter. He was until a fatal accident on the Japanese highway killed him. He was in his prized 350Z. He was racing some ricer when witnesses say the ricer spun him out. The guy was on the run when he murdered my dad. The feds found him hiding in a motel. I faced him in the courtroom and he got the full sentence of 16 years with no parole. Now my dad's fortune has been given to my Mom and I 50/50. Now I can buy my first car and start what I was born to do. Race. ____________________________________________________________ I was looking at the local Autotrader for a used car and some cars caught my eye.

Lotus Espirit V8-GT 1998 MR A foreign car to these parts of Japan but we are selling. 352 HP, kept clean, almost 30,000 miles on the clock. Selling for 5,000,000 yen. The Espirit caught my eye and I dialed up the number and a lady answered the phone and said ???,"Hello" Koshiko," I am calling for the Espirit." Lady," You were the first to call, I'll give you my address." A hour later...I caught the bus there with my suitcase with the Yen. A lady was outside Lady," Are you the guy who wanted the Espirit." Koshiko," Yeah!" Lady," Where is the Yen?" Koshiko handed the lady the suitcase full of yen from his dad's glory days. She looked in the suitcase and smiled. She tossed the keys to me and pointed to the car. There it was with all its beuaty just like in the magazine. I unlocked the door. I cranked the car up and its engine purred. I looked at the lady for a last time and floored it.
