    Summary

    “A koi fish,” her teacher once read out loud from a well-worn storybook, “means tenacity. Perseverance. It is said that they fight against waterfalls, always swimming against the stream’s current so that when they one day reach the top of those waterfalls, they can shed their scales and become dragons.”

    Thunder cracked in the doorway of the Okumura household, and from its light, her brother stood half-drowned in the doorway. Eiji was never the talkative type, but as he let the water drip from the floor into pools on the carpet without saying a word, thunder rumbling in the backdrop of Izumo, she knew that any words would have been choked out of him.

    Eiji spared one small smile at her, dropped his suitcase by the shoe cupboard, and walked through the house with squeaking wet shoes. Kaori watched, frowned, and decided not to press.

    He didn’t talk much about America.

    (Or, a year from the finale, Kaori Okumura watches her brother struggle with the grief of his time in America, and not all is at it seems surrounding Ash Lynx.)

    Summary

    In Japan, Eiji seems taller than him. He has that same air of confidence Ash knows he must have had back in New York, because the people here look at Eiji the same way they looked at Ash. He wonders if they’re becoming more and more similar over time, if maybe his rough edges can smoothen through the river of time like a piece of glass or a stone.
