Tachi contemplates his life and the near future.
Tachi’s been rather quiet lately. I think watching his children grow up has been a challenging experience for him. Nade’s married, Kyo and Kin both have girlfriends, and Ren just grew into a teenager.
I think he recognized that his time in the house would be ending soon. He spent a lot more time talking to Nade about random things.
|“PLUMBING. Make sure you know how to fix the toilets. They’re a real pain in the plumb! *chortle*”|
|“Oh, OH! And gardening! I need to show you a few things so you can finally make our garden just perfect. It’ll get there Nade, you wait. Just a few more weeks, I bet…”|
Nade had some good news for Tachi, too.
|“You’re going to be a grandpa!”|
Tachi was very pleased with the news but he had some things on his mind… lots of things to process…
Top of his list was being a ghost. He tried to learn about the next life stage from Rei but she sort of shrugged.
|“It’s peaceful, I guess. I don’t have any responsibilities really. Sometimes I leave paintings up in the studio.”|
Ryu appeared next and he and Tachi didn’t seem to get along.
NO! Not yet! He’s about to become a grandpa!!!
Dani hasn’t been taking this well…
