Kaede came back from the bathroom, sighed and sat down on the black leather couch, smiling brightly at the two girls that had just now requested his presence. He didn't have to do much more than to pay attention, laugh when it was appropriate and force down some alcohol once in a while. One could definitely live with that. Making a living on it wasn't so bad either. After a few hours Kaede stepped out to the cold winter air and let his mask fall off. He was tired and his eyelids were about to fall off if he didn't do something soon. He dragged himself to a bench that stood conveniently close and just sat there for a couple of minutes, trying to rearrange the sounds coming from everywhere so that the sharp giggles and the roaring engines of the passing cars weren't in focus. His head was hurting badly. Thank God he had such great work hours or else he'd never had started this job.
