Kaleidoscope: Shinkai Hayato
Third installment in the collection! Warning for very brief violence (not explicit, but there’s a little talk of blood).
Shinkai liked to think of himself as peace-loving. Not a pacifist, not really, but he enjoyed peace. He enjoyed when his interactions with others could be harmonious, full of light-hearted jokes and good cheer.
The taste of blood in his mouth and his knuckles aching, he was rapidly reassessing this whole “peaceful” approach.
