Today, Sunday, there's a sense of rightness and quiet. Outside, he hears birdsong that reminds him of home. Rashid drops sugar cubes in each tiny glass bowl—refined white for Lapsang Souchong, demerara for Earl Grey—and readies the tea tray for delivery.



Harriet turns down the telly for a few seconds, straining to listen. She knows the sound of those footsteps by heart, partly because the young man who makes them has been living in the flat upstairs for about ten years now. The reason she really remembers them, however, is something she couldn't put her finger on for a very long while, but eventually figured out, and she's proud of that fact. He has the lightest, quickest footfalls she's ever heard: soft and smooth, as if he's scarcely touching the ground.

Photo Number 69
A photo of Makoto, and how it accidentally uncovers the insecurities they have.


On October of his second year of high school, two weeks shy after Iwatobi High School Cultural Festival, Rin stares at the photo Gou had sent him through LINE, hesitates for half an hour, and then finally calls Haruka.

"Your school's photography club," he says without preamble when Haruka finally picks up after five missed calls. There's a distinct sound of water on the other side, and Rin is a hundred percent sure Haruka is annoyed because Rin is intruding on his private soaking time, but this is sort of an emergency. "Gou said they already published the Cultural Festival photos and you can buy them for 100 yen each."

A brief silence, punctuated with a distant sound of bubbles popping. Haruka must have submerged half of his face in the water. Rin is probably on speaker. ".....is Makoto there?"

A splash. A few seconds of nothing, and then a lazy, "...no."

"Oh, good. Because I need you to buy this photo—" Rin pauses to check the earlier picture that Gou had sent: an entire wall of Cultural Festival photos tacked on it, each photo sporting a number. "Number 69."

A Plethora of Seconds
A bunch of drabbles written on the train.


Rainy season in Tokyo is largely different from Iwatobi's. Makoto doesn't like it less, because some things stay the same.


On their second meeting, Kirishima Natsuya wears a green jacket.

Rin nearly gets a heart attack, when the corner of his eye catches a glimpse of a finely built man with green jacket and fluffy, nearly untameable brown hair. His brain catches up a split second later because there is no way Makoto is here, don't be stupid, Matsuoka—and he takes a breath before walking over towards the figure and opening his mouth and calling out, "Oi, Kirishima."


The ocean sparkles, dyed gold by the sunrise. Rin inhales deeply, fills his lungs with chilly winter air as he digs his heels deeper in the sand.


He does a double take on the corner to the convenience store, and jogs back to find the cat lounging on the fence. She yawns at him when he takes her picture, and Makoto gets a second to scratch behind her ear with a laugh as he sends the photo to Rin.

cracker snap(chat)s
On January 2nd, 2015, Eliza Dooley comes to work an hour late, with no Starbucks and no mascara on.

In fact, she steps out of the elevator completely make-up free, minus the residual track marks of whatever blush she'd had on at the New Years' Eve Party. Charmonique can tell all the way from the circulation desk, if only because of how prominent Eliza's eye bags are.

And it isn't just the lack of make-up that throws the entire picture out of whack. The top Eliza's wearing has red and green stripes and a blooming poinsettia at the left shoulder. Something between ugly holiday sweater contest and dug out of Mom's attic because laundry hasn't been done in two months in terms of clothing tiers. Under normal circumstances, Eliza would never even admit to owning it, let alone wear it out of the house.
