“The facade of the robatayaki looked like a leftover from the past…smoky-black tiles topped its wooden overhang…red, waxy paper lanterns lit it up…a noren curtain hung from a thin bamboo pole above the doorframe. Its sliding doors had rows of rectangular panes of glass. The robatayaki’s simplicity gave the impression of a one-story building, but eight floors of apartments rose up from it.”

“Fiona’s face became the stage for the monologue in her heart.”

“Why waste her time caring about what happened to dead people when she could barely keep up with the living?”

“No longer does my mind dwell on fleeting figures written upon swift waters for my full heart has settled in your sparkling depths.”
