So I’m back from Japan and can post the images without some mad time difference. It was a sick place and I took as many photos as I could when the hot weather wasn’t killing me. Managed to survive an earthquake aswell which is always 👍🏻
You saw her, by the bar, but when you turned back, she was gone. No worries, back to arguing over the game.
Then she caught your eye, fleetingly, as she passed between two women by the bathroom. She smiled at you, you know she did. But even though you didn't see the bathroom door open and the other women walked away, she wasn't there.
After you saw her stretched out on a bench in the back past the pool tables you started trying to point her out to your friends but they were far past the recognizing-visual-stimuli stage of the evening and were already struggling with their Lyft apps. But you had barely drank anything... Then, slightly frantic because you watched in the mirror as she caressed your cheek in passing -- and you felt it -- but there was no one around, you asked the bartender.
And she sighed, and gave you a free shot, and told you about the boyfriend, and the jealousy, and one specific night, and the screams, and the police lights, and the outline.
And about the lonely woman who's still here after she should be gone, and the angry men who chased after her when she showed up every month, and were never seen again.
You thought about this, long and hard. You ordered two more shots, and placed one in front of the empty stool next to you.
And you waited. No chasing, no games, just ready to be there, and to listen.
