As expected, the young man with the headphones was lounging around the examination floor again. He was laying back in a chair right across from where Clear sat waiting for Doctor Seragaki to come back. Pink headphones sat on his blue hair, his lips mouthing along with the music he was listening to. That was all he ever did, not because he was in a hospital and so he needed to keep quit. Through his visits, Clear had come to find out that the mouthing was because he actually did not have a voice at all.
Noticing Clear watching, the young man came over, pulling his headphones down. “Are you getting another examination?” His hands, obviously used to sign language, moved fluidly.
Clear nodded, offering a smile as he lifted his hands to respond. “I’m having problems with my left ear now, so my grandpa is getting worried.” His own signing was still imperfect, but both Doctor Seragaki and the young man insisted he was a rather fast learner.
