Summary: A gas station on the way to Sendai.
Megumi leans against the car as Isshin fills the tank. Her long, lean body, encased in denim and skin-tight cotton, doesn't look entirely real. She is slightly mussed, hair shining, lipstick faintly smudged. The gas station around her is dirty, poorly lit, greasy. Somewhere above her, a light flickers.
The contrast shows how little she belongs here. And if Megumi, the rebellious daughter, doesn't belong, then Isshin, the obedient, predictable twentysomething son must seem absurd.
"How much longer to go?"
He shrugs. "A few more hours. Why Sendai, anyway?"
She shrugs right back, a secretive smile on her face. "I know a few people there."
