Eiji laughed at Ron's reaction. "Well, I guess you could say that." He paused as he took up the chopsticks and ate some more. "But that's pretty much it. I had this feeling, it took me over, came up, knocked on the door, and BAM! I'm here, sharing this wonderful meal with you folks."
Ron and Leyla didn't look happy at all with his explanation.
"Well, that's all there is to it." Eiji smiled and continued on eating.
Yet something hit him. Something was different again. As if air had stopped flowing. As if everything became still in life.
"Did you guys hear that?" Eiji looked around frantically, something was wrong.
"Hear what?" Ron replied.
"That's exactly it. What?" Eiji said. "There's no sound whatsoever."
"Maybe the cops are really preparing for an assault?"
Eiji stood up and ran towards the window, and as he looked out of the window, he screamed. "It's not here!" He yelled out as he came back towards them.
"Wha-What are you talking about?!"
"The cops, they're all gone!"
"What?!" Ron stood up and went to the window. Nothing was out there.
"There's not even any traffic or pedestrians walking out there."
Ron couldn't speak, he didn't know what to think.
"Maybe the cops just blocked the block for the assult and evacuated everyone already?" Leyla said calmly, still sitting at the table.
"No, in a crowded city like this?" Eiji looked back at her. "Even if they did block the block off, there's still gotta be some traffic out there for other people to move on, or even news helicopters and such." He looked back again. "Yet it's all empty, as if everything has vanished, as if..."
And that's when it hit him, as if it was an invisible palm slapping him, pushing him down, throwing him on the floor. "Aaargh!" He screamed, yet his voice seemed so distant.
Ron didn't even seem to notice, he just stared off at the sky and glued his eyes there. "Ron! The hell is wrong with..." Eiji started to scream out, yet that strange hand came back again, this time muffling his mouth.
The world was jumping now, scrambling, blurring away. Eiji felt held down by an invisible force, and everything was blurring out of his view. The room, Ron, blue skies, table... But not Leyla, not her, she was still as clear as ever, undisturbed by all that was going on.
Something was horribly wrong.
Eiji started struggling to move, strugging to take that invisible hand off his mouth.
And as he did so, he felt it.
It was there, the skin soft as a woman's, smooth like baby-skin.
Eiji's eyes widened with shock.
