Banana Yoshimoto

“I mean it. When your light is out, Chihiro, I feel so alone I can hardly bear it.”

Whenever Nakajima said my name, every single time, it sparkled like a treasure. I had no idea why. Wow—did you see how that flashed? Say it again for me, please!
Only I couldn’t tell him that, so I simply replayed his voice, speaking my name, within me.”
