Ankou sat himself next to the girl on the bench. Her breath condenses with every exhale, every precious one. Ankou shuffled through his pocket, fumbling with a small piece of paper. He read it, put it back in his pocket, and turned to the girl. "Kat Madden?" She turns, surprised that the stranger knew her name. "Um, I think you dropped this a moment ago." Ankou pulls an iPod front coat pocket. 'Kat Madden' is engraved on the lower back half. "Yeah, that's me." She reached her hand across the bench to retrieve her device. "Thanks." She awkwardly kicks her legs at the traffic directly in front of the uncomfortable pair.
