Pridemo ponoči. Vijugamo po cestah, ki v tem ne dajo drugega vtisa kot mehko premetavanje po zadnjem sedežu ekonomske prevozne škatle. Poleg mene klokotata dve kanti kerozina. Sta že uporabni, si mislim. Maho pa se mi opravičuje zaradi vonja kerozina, pravi Ryuzo, ki se hitro potopi nazaj v čebljanje z Maho, eno izmed starejših prijateljic.
