Why?

Why did I open that window?

Was it because I was excited at nature’s madness, and I was stimulated, or I was stirred by a violent impulse―was that it? I certainly did open the window, and I yelled. If I didn’t scream, I felt like I would shatter to bits.

I felt like I was suffocating. I was scared. I wanted to scream.
That was why I opened the window―wasn’t it?

No.

That’s not it.

You called to me. I heard that voice―your voice―calling me.

It ducked through the wind, tore through the rain, and came to me. You called me, and I was called by you.

That’s why I opened the window. I flung it open wide to the outdoors. I extended my arms in search of you. You called me, and I listened. I reached out, and you caught my arm. I opened the window so I could meet you.

That’s our truth, Nezumi.
