    Summary

    It’s like Reigen’s been waiting for the question. He stops dead on the pavement, grips Mob by the shoulders, and stares down into his eyes with an expression as haunted as though every ghost the pair of them has ever exorcised has taken up residence behind it. “Mob,” he says. “Mob,” he says again. “Tell me, Mob. Look at me and tell me. Tell me truthfully. Do I look cursed to you?”

    Mob looks at him, and tells him truthfully. “No.”

    “Well, you didn’t look very long,” says Reigen. “Let’s just stand here for a moment, like so, and you can have another look, a nice long look, and really think about it...”

    (There's nothing strange about being called back to exorcise the same haunted photocopier six days in a row. It must just be a very haunted photocopier.)

    Summary

    Atsushi wakes, blinking as his hands brush nothing but blankets. Outside, rain patters on, buzzes and echoes through the small room. It's still too dark to see anything, but a single sliver of light comes in from the windows. Atsushi squints his eyes, makes out the silhouette of a man looking out into the distance.

    Dazai-san, he wants to call out. But his throat is too dry, and his lips move without a sound.

    Summary

    This was Dazai Osamu’s life: twenty two, high school dropout, IQ of over two hundred, promoting the illusion of riches and glamour in a dazzlingly bright casino. Spy for the mafia, gathering information from table conversations and employees’ rooms, writing them in a code only he could decipher, figuring out ways to get closer to the boss, all the while thinking vaguely, numbly, of when he used to roam the streets.

    This was Dazai Osamu: waiting, waiting, and waiting for something even he couldn’t define.
     

    Twenty one points makes the hand, and Dazai has learnt how to play without an ace.
    Or, Dazai is a dealer, with a memory of the ace of hearts under a twilight sky.

    Written for Dazatsu Week 2019, Day Two: Trickster.
