100 Days of Tsurezure, Day 46: Solstice

INT. TOKYO SEWERS – NIGHT

MARE A KOMACHI (20s) slinks quietly along the catwalk. Her jaw is set, her mission clear.

KOMACHI
(quietly)
Cococo!

Only dripping water greets her call. Komachi’s face says it all: It’s about what she expected.

A RUSHING SOUND up ahead betrays one of the system’s main intakes. Komachi heads toward it.

INT. TOKYO SEWERS – CULVERT – CONTINUOUS

Komachi views the scene before her: Amid churning storm runoff and SAFETY SIGNS left over from a recent maintenance project, all would be normal, but for the STREAKS OF RED BLOOD on the wall and, just above the culvert’s mouth, DEEP SCRATCH MARKS.

ANGLE ON: A single link of BLUE CHAIN stuck on one of the signs.

Komachi NODS grimly. She’s closer now.

At least, maybe that helps to explain the absence of Tsurezure’s two enigmas. Otherwise, it’s a mundane life for Not Secured, Loose Ends as we move into Official Summer. Shidare celebrated the solstice by … hiding behind curtains?

Tsuyame, I really don’t understand, but maybe something about pandas at the beach?

At any rate, stay tuned for the next exciting installment! We’re almost halfway there!
