Happy Memories

Happy Memories

He was living in a family of four: himself, his big sister Elda, his mother and his father Frey. One day their house got burned down due to unknown reasons, but since he was born with bad legs, he couldn't get outside and died inside the house, telling his family that it is fine and that they must go. That day shocked his family causing his mother to become comatose and having his father become fixated on his memory.


Jacob is born with a handicap; he cannot walk stable on ground and has been carrying himself with a wheelchair. During that accident he fell off his wheelchair without his family noticing. Through the last words he spoke, he probably cares deeply for his family and sacrifices himself to keep them safe.


  • (To his family) "It's fine just get out of here."[1]
  • (To his father) "Father, hurry up and get mother and sister out!"[1]
