Ren looked out of the window of the little coffee shop that he’d managed to find, it was strange being in a new city, and Tokyo was as strange as he was going to get. He thanked the waitress, who he noted was wearing a green maid dress and went back to staring out of the window. Sipping his tea he watched a couple walk past, surgical masks covering their mouths, hands moving rapidly. It was almost winter, and even inside the warm coffee shop he felt cold, the October wind howling around the room whenever the door opened. He shivered and looked at the door when it opened, he smiled and stood. It had been a long time since he had seen the person who was making their way towards him, way too long. He suddenly felt a small regret in following his father to America and not staying with the woman who was in front of him.
“I’ve missed you mother.”
