While Magnus is waiting he feeds the ducks at
His backpack is standing beside him.
He takes out his last cigarette, crunches the
package and throws it away.
A slight smile comes to his face as he watches
How much such a small change of perspective
sometimes can give you...
He looks up and sees Lasse coming. For a
moment his face darkens just to become without emotion.
Lasse stops in a short distance and looks at
Magnus throws away his cigarette and turns
Hello Lasse. How was your journey to
I'm sorry, do we know each other?
I'm a close friend of Ari.
Pause. Lasse thinks.
Ari? Where is Ari? We wanted to go together
on a journey.
He is waiting for us there. He was so
impatient that he already left a couple of days ago.
Hmmmm... That sounds strange... Did
Yea, he became quite pale... Ehh, I mean...
He stayed at home a lot. And didn't have many visitors... you know. He finally
wanted to get going.
Did he say anything?
Only that I should meet you and that you
would show me the way.
He inaugurated you?
In that case we can make our way together...

How did you get to know each other?
In an Internet forum.
The net is his world.
And your travelogues. You're aware that he
experiences the world half through you?
Yes I know. It arose from his terrible
accident... I strive to convey my journeys to him in as much detail as
He felt quite down about you not getting in
touch with him for a long time...
I know. I've totally neglected him recently.
In fact I wanted to be with him weeks ago. I won't forgive myself that...
Lasse goes on walking.
Oh, I believe you for sure!
But as soon as I am with him, I am sure he
will understand my behaviour.
