The Hunter and The Songbird
29 May 2018
Hizashi laughed along with the crowd, and when the laughter died down again, he smiled. “I just wanted to give you a warm welcome to the village, Shouta! I spent most of the week working on a new song just for you, so...” He placed his fingers on the strings of the harp. “I hope you like it!”
The first few notes were plucked, the crowd quieting down to listen properly, and Shouta grimaced. Yeah, no, he was getting out of there then and there. He hated performances on a good day, and anything that called attention to him was right out. He sighed, a little glad that everyone was watching the kid pluck at the harp, and turned back to the doors. Time to get out of there.
He froze, though, when Hizashi began to sing.
