... The beautiful girl from Maruhashi’s, now dressed in pink fashion-camouflage had just turned the corner and was walking toward me.
She hadn’t seen me, but I saw her. Her eyes were on the street and you could only see the dark lashes slashing through the soft brown surrounds like treachery.

She was amazing in her pink camouflage, like she would come for you at sunset...
