It was after work. The sun was starting to sink under the horizon and I wished that it would take my stress away with it. The day had been productive, but it was stressful as well. I guess that’s the formula for a good day in the office. Now my destination was the quiet calm of a Japanese garden.
The fading sun was warm and the garden absent of others. It was the perfect place to find peace. I leaned against the open garden gate and closed my eyes, the trickling sound of the koi pond’s fountain lulling me into a dreamy haze.
Perhaps it was only a minute, or maybe it was ten, but soon sounds of footfalls broke through the monotony of fountain and drew me back to reality. Someone else was here.
I pushed off the gate and quietly wandered through the garden, curious to see who was there, yet unsure if I wanted to engage in conversation. Always a curious one, I kept up my search until I saw a man braced against a wall column. I knew him. It was my friend Marcus. But, what was he doing here?
When I asked, he said he happened to be in the area. I didn’t believe him. It wasn’t a scene he normally visited or I’ve heard him tell tale of in our past conversations.
We talked for a bit, mostly idle banter with vague responses. I was never good at small-talk and sudden encounters tended to make me nervous. Content to let Marcus be about his own designs of whatever brought him here, I offered a polite smile and made an excuse to leave.
Marcus reached for my hand and said that I should change my mind about going. Should I stay, or should I go?
