Chapter 43:- Prayer
We wander past the food stalls and the games,
into the lantern lit half light of the shrine.

The night cicadas are already singing.
Gentle songs of summer nights and yearning.

I don't know where Kyuushi planned to go,
but I
suddenly following my intuition
walk up to the grate and toss in a coin.

The clang of the bells joins the nightly song as I ring it.

I clap my hands and bow my head.

“What did you pray for?” Kyuushi asks when I return.

“Good luck,” I decide to tell him,
unable to put into words
the vague and fleeting feelings that drove me.
