The room lay still. I could hear the raindrops outside my window. The small glass opening on the top glass panes gave in some air, causing a whistling sound in my room. I glanced over my mobile and its 11:35 pm. I snuggled into my bed. I closed my eyes. Nothing. My hands reached over to the tv remote control. In the darkness, light appeared, flashing as I pressed the “On” indicator. I thought to myself, if only I have a remote control of my own life, one where I could invite the rainbow instead of the darkness. With limited options, I surfed the local channels.

One programmed caught my attention. I paused. Anime, showing at 11:45pm? Strange ? Which child would be awake at this hour to watch ? The adults working in the entertainment/broadcasting industry never fail to amuse me.
