Fantasy Drabble #134 “World Traveler”

There is a knock at the door.

It’s been years since I’ve been to Tokyo. Like New York, it’s a city that never sleeps. Which is fortunate, as I am jet-lagged. And annoyed at the two hours I spent cooling my heels on the parked airplane waiting for the sun to go down.

The concierge knows what I am saying before I say it. I don’t have to wait long.

I open the door, and she is standing there, holding her blood test results in her hands. Her name is Junko, and she is B negative.

I love this city.
