Episode 14

Set upon a path
Back to the vivid past laid out before them both
The two companions tread upon the sick, wilting leaves

Under the surface,
Something lurks.
The facade of Japan resembles an afternoon near the end of summer.
Deceptively vital,
Yet unevitably doomed to the onslaughter of winter,
The wilting leaves of summer crushed beneath our feet.
As alone, we travel along towards the patched.
