The Best Spot || Maya & Soseki
After his lunch and usual ‘morning’ tea (which he had gotten shifted to lunch tea after a bit of pleading with Colleen. He couldn’t switch his sleeping schedule on a whim, surely such a lady as Colleen understood that. And he was recovering, he needed sleep), Soseki needed a walk. In Echo Village this usually involved a stroll through the base of the mountain and maybe some time fishing. Fishing. He felt like he hadn’t done that in years. Luckily, Jake had an old fishing pole he had been willing to lend Soseki. It was kind of worn and dusty, obviously the man didn’t fish much, but it would do.
Soseki opened the door to exit the inn, fishing pole over his shoulders, and came face to face with Maya. He hadn’t seen her in two days and was surprised to see her now. She looked a little worn, like she had been walking for a long time.
He wouldn’t deny that he hadn’t been worried where she had disappeared off to the past two days, but he quickly stifled those feelings. “Hey there,” he said, eyes wide in surprise. “Nice to see you.” How lame, Soseki. He inwardly frowned. He wasn’t trying to impress her or anything.
