Travelling home by subway after a long day at work had its good and bad points, Ryo decided.
On the plus side, it meant he didn’t have to focus on driving or deal with rush hour traffic, and he could read the paper.
In the negative column, it often meant standing for the whole journey, crammed into a carriage like a sardine in a can. That wasn’t so bad in winter when shared body heat was welcome, but during the summer it left him feeling like he’d been plunged into a sauna fully dressed.
It wasn’t always like that though; sometimes the carriages were almost empty and he got a seat. The downside there was that if he was tired enough, like tonight, he was liable to fall asleep and miss his stop.
Looking at Dee snoozing beside him, Ryo smiled. At least this time he wasn’t the only one!
