89 days in Tsuruoka

This is the end

They left today. Their empty desks are as sad as empty hospital beds.
The worst moment was yesterday when they gave me their bycicle keys, that just a week ago belonged to Likai. The 3 keys on the table looked like a the laid down arms of a defeated army after a long and heroic fight.
So there's gonna be no more Friday eating out at Kurumaya ramen, I dont feel like going there anymore alone. No more Monday night fever in karaoke bar. No more Ayako, Hinako, aishitteru emails. No more "What!?!" or "Sumatra is the capital of Indonesia".
Spring has arrived finally after the long, deadly winter. But there will be no joy in Tsuruoka this year, the cherry blossom will not bloom for us.
Life is a bitch.
