The city hasn't grown in a long time. Not since he was born, at least, he thinks. Obviously he has to go see it.

(The fact that there's only one person who extends the island has...nothing to do with it.)

It's a little eerie, walking through the empty streets, listening to the wind and the rustling of the new leaves. Everything's untouched.

He makes his way towards the edge.

At the edge there are things that are not untouched! There is a woman sitting at the very edge and looking down at the ocean contentedly.

Oh, huh.

He walks up behind her and sits down next to her.

"Hi. I'm here to ruin your quiet contemplation."

Permalink

"Hi! Sucks to be you, I don't mind company."

Permalink

"Aww, man. If I don't mildly inconvenience somebody once per day I turn to stone."

He flops down on his back.

Permalink

"Oh dear. Maybe you should go annoy my brother or something."

Permalink

"Why, is he cute?"

Permalink

"Uh, I guess? But he's straight. It's just he's easier to annoy than me."

Permalink

"Well, that sounds pretty fun anyway, then."

He stares up at the sky.

"Nice to meet you, sorry for asking if your brother is cute."

Permalink

"It's alright. Nice to meet you too, I'm Lyrame."

Permalink

"Kidazi."

He looks around as best he can while on the ground.

"So, if you're not just here for the serenity..."

Permalink

"My family's going to move into that house over there," she says, waving at it.

Permalink

“...huh, already?”

He starts to look a little disappointed – it’s hard to find good abandoned places on this island – and then shakes his head.

”Congrats. Are you the first ones out here?”

Permalink

"I guess? I'm not sure when we're actually moving, the house is ours because, uh, my boyfriend is rich and impulsive."

Permalink

He whistles.

“That’s pretty fucking rich and impulsive.”

He sits up to get a better look at the house.

“Gorgeous place, too.”

Permalink

"Yeah. He's great. Maybe if you like harassing cute guys I should introduce you."

Permalink

“Hey, I like harrassing cute girls, too. I am equally annoying regardless of gender.”

 

“Sounds like a good way to spend an afternoon, though.”

Permalink

"That's fair," she nods. "I apologize for mischaracterising you."

Permalink

Snrk.

“You can make it up to me by letting me meet your fancy boyfriend, I guess.”

Permalink

"Sounds like a plan. Meet us in the east gardens at sunrise tomorrow?"

Permalink

–huh. It actually worked.

"Never watched a sunrise there before."

Permalink

"You are missing out."

Permalink

"Good thing I'm gonna see one soon, then."

Permalink

Wow, she's cute.

"So...what do you do other than watch sunrises and talk to weirdos?"

Permalink

"Hug people, read books, listen to my sister practice the flute, cook...I used to have a job waiting tables but then rich boyfriend."
