This is the 30 years old Haruki thinking about his experience, his only scary experience.
Eighteen years old Haruki who's job is a night watchman in a school in a tiny town in Niigata Prefecture.
I just finished my nine pm round and all twenty items on my list is neatly checked off. I've locked all the doors and everything is in it's proper place. I should get back to the janitors place and better set my alarm on three am for another round later and give myself a rest. zzzzzzz
hmmm what is this feeling? I feel weird. Why does my body don't want to get up? It was like something is suppressing me to get out of bed.
-yes, yes- no,no,no
Hmmm the sound of the banging of gate is getting weirder and weirder.
Walking faster on the hallway because of the darkness that is enveloping the whole place....
