|It's about a girl and a guy, each with a story of a heartbreak.|
A lone asian man walks with his eyes firmly planted on a little book and unknowingly steps on something. Feeling something breaking under his feet, soon or instantaneously, accompanied by the sound of something cracking, and his unbreaking concentration, marred by a girl in a pink mini skirt, caught, from the corner of his eyes, twisted by fate, he stops dead in his track, pauses, then smiles. Interrupted, he looks down to see the shattered pieces of a glass menagerie. "Cell phone decoration" he muses. "Poor little glass menagerie, who has the misfortune of being your master?" "Poor little glass menagerie, shattered pieces and jagged edges, how will you sooth again?" Then the man, interrupted from the muses of his musings, slightly rolls his eyes upwards with not the slightest movement of his head, sees the little pink mini skirt fumbling about and about as if searching for a lost glass menagerie. "Mmmm, 'tis fate or chance that I have been interrupted, now thrice from my musings. This pink, colored, little mini skirt and this glass menagerie. Once more." The man leaves the shattered pieces, the jagged edges, and walks toward the little pink mini skirt.

Shattered pieces and jagged edges of the glass menagerie, please, don't look sad. "I'm sorry. That was a present from my lost love, and now, why should it make me feel sad?" "Why should it, why must it, why, why, why is a question that I have asked myself, too. But right now, I would like to know how and how we might get to know each other. On this beautiful day, a girl, in a pink mini skirt with a shattered heart, should not be spending her time alone." says Min, half musing, half asking, half expecting, not half assedly. Jade looks at Min, perplexed, brows furrowed, a frown. A frown? Brows furrowed, lips slightly apart, and a sigh. A sigh? "Min, I have an appointment in an hour or so.
