Mika's hair was already streaked with grey. He was wearing a loose faded hospital gown. He looked at me carefully.
" Raise your hands in the air"
I did so.
"Yyyyyyou aren't cccarryying aiything au you ?"
" Whach did you say?"
"No---I'm not carrying anything."
"G-gggo away"
"I thought you wanted---"
"Ggo away. N-now." So I walked to the door.
"You want me to stay?"
"Nn-o. Close the door behind you--"

I didn't know what to do so I went out to the courtyard to sit down for a moment, to gather my thoughts.
