Yuuji looks at the instrument
"Why don't you play something?"

"Hmm?"

I look down at the shimasen on my lap.

"Um....okay. I guess I can do that. I'll play an original I wrote..."

I take it again into my hands and tune it a bit. Then I pick the strings with a slapping thumb in a sort of country flavor while my voice has a texture of being like it just woke up and still dreaming with a cat like yowl if utilized to loudly, untrained.

You can go anywhere....
But it's all about how you begin.
0 to 60 or zero to ten
That crash car fantasy
In your carriage of tin...

And what HAPPENED
What happened way back when....
When your eyes glew nothin' but gold

Those first founding days
Those days I cried myself through
Those self administered remedies
I bled myself blue....

And the universe was ever expansive
The sun and the moon made it's revolutions...
But not around me
And certainly not around you.

I caught your eyes first
But in you, I saw even less
You were running and running
But you couldn't even manage
A breath past two.

But I digress...
I condescended my hand toward you
To which you grabbed ahold of
I wanted to see you through
It's true.

But even then, it was an investment in myself
Rather than you
And together, we'd watch the world burn
And we'd Catch-22
On the train ticket home.

These summer strap on shoes
I wore out the sole...
Mrs. Nouveau Riche princess...
A thousand, twenty three
Wasn't this the life into which I was born
The teenage dream....

Wasn't that the goal...?
Before everyone was going...
Going....
....gone...."

I finish with a gentle, melancholy strum and open my eyes after it's done.

Yuuji slowly claps
"That was....interesting"
I-I don't know what to say to that... I mean the tune was great
"I-I'm amazed you wrote that. I like it."
Sort of....

I put down my shimasen and sigh, inexpressive and disheartened. I say in a flat voice.

"It's okay. You tell the truth. You didn't like it. It's better to be honest - I'm not good at any form of creative art unlike my sister. I know that."

Salt on the wound Yuuji, salt on the wound...

I shake my head and lift my hand for you to stop.

"That is the one and only thing that I have thought resembled a truth in the society of human beings where I have dwelled up to now as in a burning hell. Everything passes.”

"But..."
Yuuji light shakes his head as he speaks then stops and leans forward a bit disgusted with himself. Instead changing direction
"You going to be heading back soon?" He says taking out his phone " Wouldn't be a good idea to stay out for this long anymore."

"No. There's a full Moon tonight. I want to view it."

Clouds were rolling out of the way of the Moon and gave way to a clear, crystalline sky with specks of light shining down over the courtyard.

Yuuji looks up as well seeing the moon at it's best
"Kinda sucks that we can't see many stars out at night anymore."

I merely nod and continue gazing up at the stars in silence.

Yuuji finishes what's left of his drink and stands up with his crutches
"I really should get some sleep." he turns to Riye and bows
"It was nice meeting you, Asano."

"You too."

I sigh and put my legs up on the bench as you leave.
